ABK Architects / MosArt Energy Specialists

This is an interactive tour of what is currently the largest social, affordable & cost rental housing scheme in the country and is being delivered in partnership with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the Land Development Agency. Representatives from the architect, ABK Architects, and the energy specialist, Mosart, will guide the tours. Set within the historic landscape of Shanganagh Castle Demesne adjacent to Shanganagh Park, the development is centred around a new public square, extensive landscaping and an avenue leading to Shanganagh Castle. The scheme will be one of the largest in Europe to be designed to Passive standards, with 8 apartment buildings incorporating 546 apartments, as well as 51 houses and a Crèche. Construction began in June 2022 and when complete will have a total of 597 units featuring a mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bed options with a density of 84.9 per hectare. An emphasis has been placed on pedestrian and cycle accessibility with the development being in close proximity to the proposed new Dart station at Woodbrook and BusConnects also.
The apartments are design to Passive House Standards, which have higher energy saving criteria than the current Building Regulations. Visitors will get an introduction to the architectural design of the project, as well as the low energy features that are being implemented, including thermal bridge reduction, air-tightness, mechanical, heating and overheating strategies.

If possible, visitors should bring their own PPE. If this is not possible, visitors should confirm their boot size when booking so they can be provided on-site.

The site entrance where the tour will start is clearly marked and adjacent to the entrance of Shanganagh Castle, Dublin Road, Shankill, Dublin 18, D18 P7K2.

This tour is pre-book only.
