Castleknock Private Development, Dublin 15

Four New A-Rated Homes Constructed on a small greenfield site in the middle of the ever popular Dublin suburb

For the Three Detached homes a traditional style was the desired approach, both inside and out. And it was very much achieved with a light red brick, granite cills, stone window surround, Blue Bangor slates and cream sliding sash timber windows. We'll let the photos explain the interiors. The fourth stand-alone dwelling was quite different with a white render finish and sleek minimal elevations giving a more modern feel.

These homes were constructed with prefabricated timber frame which sped up the process and resulted in warm airtight homes that heat up quickly reducing energy consumption helping achieve the A ratings. Each home is heated with Air to water heat pumps and ventilated with a whole house heat recovery system.

What we love?

Typically we're drawn to more contemporary design however here the client really wanted a more traditional look to the development. And clients come first of course! However for the fourth we worked together to create something that both contrasted and complimented the others, resulting in the more contemporary minimal 'white' house at the entrance to the community.
