Elmpark is a massive 100.000 m² mixed-use development in south-western Dublin. Close to the coast it benefits from spectacular views over Dublin Bay. The development consists of 6 linear multi-storey structures incorporating a hotel, a hospital, a congress centre, offices and apartments, 8 smaller buildings, a leisure centre with swimming pool and 7 two-storey buildings inhabiting senior citizens. Elmpark is seen as a vision that promotes sustainable, high density and low energy mixed-use development. The footprint of the buildings is compact to minimize the impact on the ground and to support the idea of a continuously flowing landscape underneath the buildings. This public landscape is understood as a 'garden'. Areas in this 'garden' are defined by the buildings overhead. The buildings which appear different due to their function and layout. The overall design is highly influenced by a comprehensive ecological approach to achieve the aims of a sustainable low energy solution.
