Architecture Ireland recently published an edition on housing. The Glen Regeneration project completed by Cork City Council is featured in the edition. Photographs of the project were completed last summer on a glorious day. The project is a great example of housing in the landscape. Cork’s steep slopes are made use of by the Architects to create a patterned landscape of housing across the hills cape. The slope enables courtyards at the front of some houses that have bridges into the main accommodation.
