Through the successful completion of various large-scale private residential apartment developments in Ireland and the UK and various high-quality one-off residential homes for specific private clients, we have developed a skill base which understands the needs of modern living while at the same time recognising the importance of the technical, sustainable and cost efficient aspects of residential design.
This understanding enables us to balance the need for contemporary living standards with current sustainable design principles. We bring to our design process an emphasis on scale, proportion and form, with particular attention to orientation, natural daylight, acoustic privacy, private and public open space, landscaping, circulation patterns, space around buildings, interface with the public realm and passive security.
As part of the continuing urban regeneration of Dublin’s Docklands, we have completed a 616 unit luxury private apartment and penthouse development in Spencer Dock. As part of the Government’s social inclusion policy, this development includes a second phase Social Housing Apartment scheme, designed to the same high quality and standards as the private scheme. These developments form part of the larger mixed use development of Spencer Dock which has been masterplanned by Scott Tallon Walker Architects .
Our residential expertise has been combined with our high rise aesthetic and technical capabilities in the design of a 120m-high residential Watchtower at the east end of Dublin’s Docklands, forming a critical element and central feature in our design of the Point Village Development.
South of Dublin City, in the seaside town of Dun Laoghaire , we have completed a mixed use development of 100 luxury residential apartments with retail facilities and a civic theatre. The design of this scheme regenerates a former derelict site, maximises views over the harbour and Dublin Bay while engaging the locality through the use of public facilities such as cafés, restaurants, a public gymnasium and a public theatre.
By contrast to these large-scale residential apartment developments, Scott Tallon Walker Architects is responsible for the design of many award winning one-off houses for private clients, including the iconic Goulding Summerhouse near Enniskerry in Co. Wicklow and the Tallon House, Foxrock, Co. Dublin.
Our flexibility in responding successfully to such contrasting design briefs in residential design demonstrates our commitment, skill and expertise in this field.
