Affordable Housing in Cork
PAC Studio has been involved in the strategic development of a prominent site in Cork, adjacent to a rail link direct to the city centre. The project is part of the Housing Agency strategy for development of social and affordable housing for a range of demographics across the country. In this instance, terraced housing is developed around shared communal gardens, with a range of landscaped spaces for family use. Car parking is located to the end of the terraces and is shared with the taller apartment block. The massing and positioning of the apartment block makes for a landmark on the train line, whilst the lower floors allow for some community facilities, including creche and a small cafe.
