Milltown Park, Dublin
As part of the overall design philosophy, the design team have ensured public accessibility throughout the site, which has never existed before.
The existing retained parkland will be a local benefit to the entire community as an alternative route for pedestrian movement along Milltown Road.
A series of defined landscape character areas will have a relationship to this architectural setting and public and residential use.
As part of the open space strategy, our vision for both residents and the public is to engage and reconnect as much as possible with nature throughout the site.
The design philosophy for the proposed new residential scheme in Sandford aims to create a new and unique high quality residential community in a parkland setting.
OVERARCHING AIMS, OBJECTIVES AND DESIGN PRINCIPLES
Create a new residential development, integrated with the existing landscape setting of parkland through a series of connected landscape character areas.
The existing historical buildings will be respectively set within a new formal landscape setting, transitioning into more of a natural setting, surrounding the newly proposed residential blocks.
The Arboricultural report has allowed the team to identify trees of high value, low value and medium value. These higher quality trees have been the design philosophy layout for the architecture and landscape architecture.
