The Landform and Habitats of the Site Include Hedgerows, Marshland, Grassland Golf Course and Brown eld Habitat(s). This Variety of Habitats Provides the Site Potential to Create a Site with High Biodiversity. The Natural Landform is Perhaps one of the Greatest Positive Features of Agricultural Land the Site.

This will Increase the Variety of Habitats on Site. Extending the Existing Habitats will Help Mitigate the E ects of Urbanisation and the Enproaching Golf Course. This will also Maintain a High Level of Biodiversity, Thus Increasing Resistance to Pest and Disease. -To Create a Space that Acts as an Interconnecting Hub for the Adjoining Commercial, Recreational and Residential Areas. Speci cally, The Luas Stop - “The Park” - Housing Estate - 3 Rock Mountain Trails. This will Increase Frequency and Duration of Use, Mitigating Vandalism and Anti - Social Behaviour. This wil be Achieved Through the Expansion of Cycleways, Pedestrian Routes and Multiple Entrances/Exits. -To Integrate the Site into the Surrounding Landscape Through Legibilty of Layout and Signage, Where Appropriate. This will Increase Site Usage and Thus Lower Vandalism. This will Involve Multiple Access Points and Integration/Inclusion of Adjoining Sites. -To Create a Space That Gives a Sense of Ownership and Identity to the Surrounding Communities. This will be Done by Integrating the DLR Depot Into the Site and by Enhancing Connections to Surrounding Amenities
  • Ballyogan Land ll Project Ballyogan Road Stepaside, Dublin 18, Co. Dublin, Ireland The aim behind this project and its design is to create a parkland that con- nects the surrounding commercial and residential estates through new access aways and congregation areas. The new design will also recreate habitats lost during the land lls operation, which will The site is divided in two by a valley that is used primarily as an in turn increase the biodiversity of the access road. The area on the opposite side of the valley provides area. The site will also bring in a variety views over looking the golf course and towards Three Rock of users from the surrounding communi- Mountain. In the design these views will be maximised by ties and beyond. Thiese include a con- screening and directing of views and tra c through planting, gregation area for shoppers, cycle lanes, congregation and circulation. The Valley itself provided the skate park, dog park, play aea and picnic inspiration for the design of the site. From a plan view, the areas with views facing towards Three valley appears as a wound in the landscape, the design aims to Rock Mountain show how the landscape is being healed by DLR and natural processesArea in Context:Pink: Site Boundary Yellow: “The Park” Blue: Residential Area Green: Golf Course Magneta: M50 Motorway “The Park”, is a commercial estate, Adjoining the site entrance is the located just o the M50.

The site has a number of negative and positive views. The inten- tion of the design is mitigate and minimize the negative views and to maximize and enhance the existing ppositive views. This will be done through screening, directing of views, circulation, congrega- tion and focalisation. Views towards the DLR depot are present through many areas of the site. This creates a sense of responsibil- ity and ownership for the park by DLR. The visual presence of the DLR depot will help deter anti social behaviour. Another positive aspect of the site is the view towards Three Rock Mountain. The LUAS Stop Mountain is visible from within the park, from the majority of view- “The Park” Congregation Areas Boundary Line Ballyogan Road Circulation M50 Motorway ing locations. Three Rock Mountain itself acts as a Focal Point for the site and surrounding areas. There are many negative views present on site. These include views of the commercial estate on the Ballyogan road, views towards the apartment complex in the North West and also the presence of the ESB substation and Pylons on site is harsh on the site, visually. The pylons are especially prob- Existing Entrance, redesigned with lematic as they create a perception of danger to one’s health increased legibility, due to sign being (association with cancer). The pylons are unattractive visually, are visually dominating and close to noisy and they are required distances that must be kept clear, sur- roadway rounding the pylons. These problems will be overcome, by draw- ing people into spaces adjacent pylons through circulation and congregation of tra c. While screening can be e ective at ground As shown in the sketches above, a large number of trees and bene cial plants will be installed on site. They will be level, there is very little that can done to screen the pylons due to used for habitat restoration (woodland, scrubland, hedgerows), which will in turn raise biodiversity of the site. In its restrictions and there immense size current state, the site acts as an obstacle to the surrounding landscape and its habitats. By providing woodland and green ways on site, the local wildlife will be able to use the park as an eco corridor. The diversity of wildlife and Ballyogan Land ll Project plantings will increase resistance to Pest and Disease. Class: LSD2 Student: Joe Clancy 15

The design also aims to provide a variety of activities that will meet the needs of users and local residents, and also to maixmise the positive views, while mitigating the negative views Sketch of Congregation Area from within the site. Another goal of the park is to connect the site to the ecosystems of the surrounding habitats, while also showing the commiment to healing the Sketch of Bridge over Valley landscape.
