The new development at Georges Place is built on a brownfield former Council Depot Site in the heart of Dún Laoghaire Town centre. A long standing ambition of the County Development Plan for this area is to strengthen the links between the main street and the seafront to create greater footfall as a means to regenerate the area. The design provides 12 high quality energy efficient A1 rated dwellings with front and rear garden space that are suitable for families. The architectural form reflects the sensitive local conservation context- the dwellings are arranged in narrow gable fronted 2 storey terraces and a wider fronted 2 storey terrace. Units enjoy own door access and have carefully delineated private space to both the front and back. Splayed windows at first floor will minimise direct overlooking between units. The project was designed by dlr architects -the Councils Architects Department. A2 Architects were appointed as enabling architects for the Council while O'Mahony Pike Architects acted as architects for SISK. It was built using a design build public works contract by Sisk to a rapid delivery programme.
