Receiving Irish Architecture Award for Best Housing from RIAI President Ms. Michelle Fagan and Ruairí Quinn TD, Minister for Education and Skills TD was Paul Kelly from FKL Architects

Best Housing (more than 1 unit)

 

WINNER: Social Housing, Shangan Avenue, Ballymun, Dublin
ARCHITECT: FKL Architects
CLIENT: Ballymun Regeneration Limited

Jury Citation:
On a difficult and narrow residual site typical of many suburban locations, this long terrace manages to generate a street, a small public space and an urban gateway. Its restrained building language, low-key detailing and orderly house plans hark back to a tradition of social housing as responsive urban fabric – the making of place as an answer to suburban fragmentation.
