2HQ are delighted to be appointed by Durkan Residential for the design and build phase of the prestigious Springfield development at Foxrock, Co. Dublin. The project will deliver 22 high quality, "passive" standard homes on a mature and contoured site.

Having worked on the planning permission phase of the project, 2HQ have used the ‘shared surface’ urban design approach to minimise the segregation of pedestrians and vehicles, by clever and innovative use of space, site layout geometry and surface finishes. The shared surface design has the effect of reducing the dominance of vehicles and vehicle speeds. This is conducive to a safer environment for pedestrians and vehicles, as well has providing a sense of high quality, high amenity open space, and at the same time maximising the development potential of the site.
