Seamlessly integrating civic amenities with a residential development.
MCA were appointed project architects for this mixed-use development based in the village of Castleknock. The scheme includes retail units, cafe, supermarket, medical centre and residential apartments. The development is centred around a new civic space for the local community.
The Lidl store building is a balanced contemporary composition of curtain walling, brise soleil, brick, granite stone and Alucobond modular cladding. The language of the building is intended to be civic in nature, appropriate to the new Square. Signage is limited and restrained. The shop fronts are small in scale and have integrated canopies which enhance engagement with the street.
