Blackrock Workshop+Apartments

Apartment, office and industrial/commercial building, Blackrock Co. Dublin: Planning application granted 2008.

The brief called for workshop or commercial use to the ground floor, office use to the first floor, and two high-amenity apartments to the top, second floor.  The apartments were designed to open to roof gardens, balconies, and have access to the garden of the existing house.

Blackrock Building- View

The site for this development is remarkable: the mews of a large Georgian house, a Protected Structure, which sits in a quiet, sheltered garden, but backs on to a mixed residential/industrial back street full of vehicle repair shops and small offices.

The challenge was to create good-quality residential accommodation addressing the existing garden, wrapping over a commercial, semi-industrial façade to the back street.

The existing mews coach-house was to be demolished but its materials were to be salvaged and incorporated into the garden façade of the proposed building.
