North Quarter

Dublin City Council sought to retain partners who would create a new ‘North Quarter’ in Ballymun consisting of retail, services, a large student housing element and a series of positive public spaces. The concept includes a robust student accommodation / associated amenity with 364 bedspaces, a retail colonnade, cafes and a supermarket. These create new edges to the Ballymun town centre in thre blocks ranging from 2/5/ 6 storeys with a 10-storey landmark corner building.

The principle design drivers included addressing the prominent Ballymun main Street corner site with an appropriate robust urban response while providing a new urban block with a sensitive architectural approach. Connection to the established Horizon Centre corner building heals the urban edge and makes a positive contribution to the emerging streetscape of Ballymun Village Centre.
