THIS WINDOW DISPLAY CAUGHT MY EYE – THE TIMBER YARD IN THE COOMBE
Another example of someone living in the Coombe taking advantage of their front window. However, it might be the community room referred to in the description below.
Here is a description of Timber Yard Housing Complex:
“A backland site was opened up when the Coombe By Pass cut through the city pattern. The urban design requirement was for a new street frontage to heal the wounds caused by the road engineering operation. The brief was for 47 dwellings and a street level community room.
This project repairs the local landscape by providing a new collective space, built around a former timber yard, making a residential enclave with a sense of place. The design provides scale, identity and a piece of living city, connecting new development in the area to the historic character of the Liberties.”
