St. Patrick’s Estate – Mayo

Challenge

St. Patrick’s Estate in Ballina was once a very shabby, depressed and derelict place, with 60% of the houses boarded up. The remaining residents of the estate had to contend with many problems, including illegal dumping, stray dogs, horses, goats and plenty of rats. Their houses were in very poor repair and some barely fit for human habitation.

Solution

Clúid believes that the key success of St. Patrick’s Estate is the collaboration and partnership with residents. It is the residents who have lived with the problems for years; it is the residents who understand the problems; and it is the residents who very often have the best answer to the problems. When we were designing the regenerated St. Patrick’s estate we really concentrated on the residents’ advice, where the problem areas were, how we needed to design out the problem areas and what they needed, for the future, to create a sustainable community.

Outcome

Today St. Patrick’s estate is a beautifully designed, family friendly, modern, yet traditional estate. Each of the houses is spacious, bright, comfortable and warm.
