O'MAHONY PIKE ARCHITECTS

DESIGNS ON KING'S CROSS

Eoin Reddington, Conor Kinsella, Richard Collins

Our proposal seeks to build on the work of the masterplan and sets itself a simple set of objectives to provide a pleasant place to live, reecting the aspirations of the home zones. A calm architecture is proposed.

The means of achieving this are:

provide buildings of different heights to establish a hierarchy of streets and maximise exposure to sunlight and daylight for the units;

provide family-sized, own-door duplex units at ground level on the quieter streets to encourage 'ownership' of these home zones;

Maximise the number of dual-aspect units with south- or west-facing living areas and balconies; and create a transparency in the buildings at street level to form visual connections between the public and semi-private realm and enrich experience of the street.
