Sean Treacy House was commissioned by Dublin City Council to replace a number of derelict 1960s flat blocks with a mixed tenure social housing development comprising apartments, houses and own door duplexes. This project redefines the neglected streetscape and creates a new shared and secure garden for the residents and their children. The design has prioritised urban form and residential amenity in equal measures, reinstating the 18th century streetscape with the semi-public courtyard contributes to the creation of a high level of amenity for the inner-city community.

Adamstown Central is part of the larger Adamstown development, 16 kilometres west of Dublin, billed as Ireland’s first 21st Century New Town. Adamstown Central will be the heart of this new urban area and will comprise a library, cinema, retail and office space, a multi-faith place of worship, health centre, a new railway station and 950 housing units. It covers a total area of 8.4 hectares, making Adamstown Central one of the largest ever mixed-use planning applications secured in Ireland’s modern history.

York Street Housing Dublin
The new building re-establishes the former street line of both York Street and Mercer Street, re-introduces the pattern of mews dwellings and marks this important city corner with a distinctive and appropriate building. A shallow depth block is used where possible with apartments accessed from single staircase and lift cores. The duplex apartments above the communal facilities to Mercer Street are accessed from an open deck overlooking the communal courtyard to the rear. The mews dwellings to the Southern boundary of the site all have own door access.
The architectural expression of the public faces of the building is a reflection of the construction system, the apartment typology, the different uses of communal circulation and private living and the application of rhythmical elements within a coherent composition on the two main facades with an elegant tower element where they meet at the corner.
