HKR developed and adapted the “Vision Modular System” for The Rockbrook Estate, allowing us to rapidly deliver a high end, commercially viable residential lead scheme on the former Sandyford Industrial estate in South Dublin.
This large, mixed use scheme sustainably responds to the brownfield site and an established urban context with retail at ground, commercial space, and residential accommodation spread over four blocks.
The residential blocks range in height from 5 to 13 storeys and sit amongst a landscaped roofscape. Each apartment is formed from a factory fabricated “Vision” module, which arrive on site by truck complete with interiors and integrated services. These “plug and play” apartments are stacked and then have external skin fitted to form watertight fully functioning buildings within a matter of weeks.
The commercial aspect consists of concrete frame retail units at ground and a six-storey office element, stepping up to a 14 storey, 55m high glazed tower with full height atrium, offering 13,250 m2 GIA of prime office space.
The scheme also provides 68,500 m2 of basement over three levels, enough for 1800 resident, customer and staff parking spaces, cycle parking, plant and ancillary space. The upper basement levels are naturally ventilated doing away with the need for expensive mechanical ventilation systems.
