Civic Trust Commendation for Dublin Design
ARPL Architects are delighted that our Sillogue Housing project in Ballymun, Dublin, has been recognised at the 2014 Civic Trust Awards ceremony on March 7th. The project was one of only two social housing projects to receive awards.
The work was carried out as part of Europe's biggest estate regeneration project for Dublin City Council and Ballymun Regeneration Ltd. The project comprises 125 homes wrapping around the new Poppintree Park designed by BRL landscape designers. The render and zinc clad housing forms a new crescent around the beautifully landscaped park creating a unique place to live for its residents.
The Civic Trust Awards are the longest standing architectural and built environment awards scheme in Europe. Established in 1959 it recognises the very best in architecture, urban design, planning, landscape, public realm and public art.
Our design is both innovative and sympathetic to the immediate and the broader environment in which they are constructed with an emphasis on sustainability. Each project embraces the unique nature of the client’s needs and the site.
From our base in Ayr the practice carries out projects over a wide geographical area from the Orkneys and the Western Isles to Ireland. Our project experience covers the fields of housing, churches, schools, commercial projects, private houses, community and arts buildings. We have developed particular expertise in contemporary sustainable design, specialist conservation works and design for historically sensitive environments.
Our work has received wide recognition through numerous design and environmental awards presented over the years for our new build and conservation works. Regular success in design competitions adds to the practice portfolio.
