Regeneration of Dolphin House Phase 1

Partner city: Dublin

Dolphin House, Dolphin’s Barn, Rialto
Dublin 8

Dublin City Council owns and manages approximately 10,250 flats in 220 estates across the city. The estates date from the 1940s to the present day. Older flat blocks are typically 4 or 5 storeys high and, depending on their condition, are prioritised within a city-wide estate regeneration programme. Two regeneration projects are presented here: Dolphin House and Saint Teresa’s Gardens. They are located 1km apart and share similar conditions but different regeneration approaches are being adopted in each.
