College Square, Dublin

Providing for City Life

Located in the heart of Ireland’s capital, Apollo House is a short walk from the River Liffey and Trinity College. The original structure on the site earned the unfortunate title of Dublin’s ugliest building and within this context, the practice was invited to join the team to create a new, mixed used development providing valuable office and residential accommodation.   Amid a sensitive city centre setting and working closely with the project architects, the team’s Landscape and Visual Assessment skills played a pivotal role in securing planning consent for the 21 storey building.   Furthermore, high quality soft and hard landscape design is now ensuring the best possible integration with its urban setting, while providing attractive spaces for future tenants.

A modern and sustainable scheme in keeping with the character and rhythm of this historic part of Dublin

The Landscape and Visual Assessment played a pivotal role in securing planning consent for the 21 storey building.

Mixed use development is a key component of successful city centres and Apollo House, Dublin, demonstrates the valuable role The Paul Hogarth Company can play in achieving high quality outcomes.
