Description

Castleroy Residential Masterplan

One of the largest planning applications ever in Limerick, this residential master plan consisted of 773 units of private and student apartments, starter homes, luxury housing, commercial centre and a flagship hotel.

Although the design proposes a density of 19.5 units per acre, it still manages to achieve 13% public open space and retains 74% of the existing trees and hedgerows on the site. The retention of the hedgerows act like ‘green fingers’ connecting the neighbourhood Parkland on the Eastern boundary to the Groody Valley Green to the West.

Description

Residential Development, Limerick, Ireland

This housing project is part of a part of the Castletroy Mixed-Development Residential Master Plan for 773 homes. The detached & semi-detached units are arranged along sinusoidal tree-lined avenues. The existing trees are retained and run perpendicular to the tree-lined avenues.
The principle concept was that trees would dominate the vista everywhere on site. This was in response to the clients research into a popular housing scheme which was mature silvan.

The dwellings are designed as 3 storey detached and semi-detached houses with the flexibility to cater for an expanding family or a home office on the second floor. The top floor is designed to function as a 4th bedroom (master bedroom) with en-suite or a home office with bathroom. All of the semi-detached houses have a side entrance to the utility area and direct access to the back gardens
