Apartment Development Birr, Co. Offaly

Client: Syngefield Developments Ltd.
Value: €1.2m


Project Brief

The Brief was to develop an 18th Century 4 storey ruined mill into sixteen 2-bedroom apartments. The mill is situated on the banks of the river Camcor in the town of Birr, Co. Offaly. The walls of the mill consist of random rubble limestone walls; 700mm thick with brick dressed openings. Some sections of wall are coursed - the quoin stones are shaped and have drafted margins and a rough punched surface finish. The Town Plan lists the mill as a protected structure.


Project Description

The solution included an external stair and lift core with deck access to apartments on the upper stories. There are 4 floors with four apartments per floor. A Conservation Plan for the rehabilitation of the existing structure was generated. The Plan sets out guidelines for the retention of the structure and the attendant grounds to retain the building’s character and special interest.
