A neat row of houses, tucked into a dense urban area in the centre of Dún Laoghaire, designed by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council in collaboration with A2 Architects. Built as part of a rapid delivery programme contractor Sisk Living also had its own consultant architects, O’Mahony Pike.
The layout consists of a terrace of four gable-fronted houses and the pair of longer thin houses, just one room deep, on Kelly’s Avenue with a further six houses to the rear, on Stable Lane. The pair closest to the harbour are rendered and painted white, in line with the traditional treatment of Victorian seafront houses in the area, with the remaining 10 gable-fronted houses clad in warm-coloured brick with zinc roofs. A classic “brownfield site”, its redevelopment contributes to Dún Laoghaire’s urban framework plan, to reconnect the town centre with the waterfront.
