Westridge Real Estate
A SCHEME EMBEDDED IN PLACE
Located in the south of Dublin City Centre, this
mixed use regeneration scheme will open up and reconnect the
area surrounding St. Kevin’s Church and Park.
DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM THE
LOCALITY AND PAST
The present church ruins (built on the foundation of the previous
medieval site) dates to around 1750 and offers a wonderful
peaceful pocket park setting, with many graves and natural stone
walls. The historic walls surrounding the church and cemetery are
a wonderful random mosaic of Kilkenny Limestone.
A PLACE NESTLED BETWEEN HISTORY,
CULTURE , WORKPLACE AND LIFESTYLE
The collection of natural materials (gravel, carved slabs of rock and
layering of vegetation) throughout these ruins, portray
the conceptual inspiration that has created the landscape design.
The public realm forms a new north-south spine from Kevin Street,
to Camden Row Street. This route forms the backbone of the
development, allowing a number of commercial and residential
land-uses and spaces to hang from it.
A series of private residential gardens, public plaza’s and
courtyard’s form the focus for its new resident’s, tenant’s and the
visiting public to enjoy. Water and natural stone play an important
role in the design principle, through a varied palette with simple
elegant detailing and expressions.
