Fletcher Priest’s scheme for 488 homes in Cherrywood, Dublin, receives planning permission
New homes in Cherrywood – Dublin Housing
Fletcher Priest’s design for 488 new homes in Cherrywood, an urban village to the south of Dublin, received planning permission earlier this month.
Fletcher Priest also led the masterplan for the wider site, which will create a community of 1,300 homes for Quintain Ireland. The project has been developed in collaboration with Dublin-based architects Urban Agency and O’Mahony Pike with landscape by Grant Associates.
The new homes comprise a mix of apartments and duplexes, a few moments’ walk from two Luas Line tram stops, and arranged around a greenway, village green, pocket park and an ecology-rich historic country lane. The homes are arranged in five storey residential buildings around generous landscaped podium gardens together with a series of three-storey buildings. At the heart of the scheme are flexible community spaces supporting a variety of amenities for residents.
All homes are designed to the highest standards standards with high levels of natural light, and Passivhaus design principles ensure low energy use and a healthy indoor climate. Flexible layouts incorporate home working space, and each dwelling has access to a private balcony and generous shared outdoor space. A distinctive duplex typology offers each resident their own front door with direct street access. The variety of typologies will attract a wide range of residents, including families.
The wider masterplan seeks to create a place that is a hybrid of city and landscape, providing the best of both worlds while respecting and strengthening existing ecological corridors. These connected open spaces are a key element of the new masterplan’s DNA, promoting healthy and sustainable daily lifestyles with nature at the doorstep.
Key infrastructure is already in place. The Luas, Dublin’s tramway, already reaches Cherrywood in 20 minutes, allowing the area to operate as a sustainable extension of the city. The nearby M50 highway provides road connections to central Dublin and there are extensive cycling corridors encouraging active travel. Workplaces can be accessed in the neighbouring Sandyford, home to multinational technology companies including Google, Microsoft and Accenture.
Dipa Joshi, Partner and Residential Lead at Fletcher Priest Architects, said:
“The team is so proud of this design- creating quality new homes near Dublin in a new healthy neighbourhood where residents will enjoy the excellent indoor and outdoor amenities. From the masterplan to the detail, we have enjoyed designing this sustainable community between the mountains and the sea. It has been a pleasure working with Quintain Ireland to realise this vision.”
Eddie Byrne, Joint Managing Partner Quintain Ireland, said:
“Demand is strong for all types of housing in the Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown area, which this additional supply will help meet. Cherrywood Village is going to be a vibrant community with over 27 acres of public space and amenities and facilities on residents’ doorsteps. We plan to start construction in the coming months, with the first homes being ready for residents in mid-2024. I would like to thank Fletcher Priest Architects for working with us on what is an excellent design for the development.”
