Older Person's Housing, Walkinstown
Location Walkinstown, Dublin
An independent living scheme is proposed for an infill site in an inner-suburban location in Dublin. The proposed development will provide housing for elderly people in an established residential area close to services, amenities and public transport.
The site is bounded on three sides by private residential properties and there is only one vehicular access point. This means the site is easily secured and that will offer peace of mind to potential residents looking for safe and comfortable accommodation.
The scheme of 59 homes is designed around a central courtyard garden which is an enclosed and sheltered space providing opportunities for rest and leisure within an easily maintainable garden space mixing hard and soft areas.
