Shandon Street / John Philpott Curran Street Project, Cork City | Regeneration | Cork City Council

This careful regeneration, conservation and construction project saved and restored derelict and protected 18th Century townhouses on the corner of Shandon Street and John Philpott Curran Street, as well as an adjacent nearby infill corner site, in one of the oldest parts of Cork city, to provide a total of 9 apartments for social housing and to restore the integrity of this historic urban block.

The project has revitalised this important entry point to Cork City, with innovative renovation of an historic structure and provision of architecturally appropriate new housing, raising the sustainability of the neighbourhood and demonstrating how such buildings can be returned to life.
