Deanrock Housing Project
Architects: Cork City Council, City Architect's Department

This development in Togher, called Shournagh Grove, consists of 65 new social housing dwellings and a dedicated community building. The scheme is made up of a variety of terraced 2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses, as well as a number of ground floor and 2-storey apartments. The dwellings achieve a Building Energy Rating of between A2 and A3, using photovoltaic panels as the renewable energy source.
The focus of the design was to integrate the scheme into the existing neighbourhoods on Togher Road, Shournagh Lawn and Ilen Court, maintaining in so far as possible the existing scale, street pattern and mature planting.
The first phase of the scheme was completed in July 2019, with the remainder of the scheme completed during the spring of 2020.
