PKA projects feature in RIAI's 'Old House New Home'

Two PKA's projects - Belgrave Road and Dawson Street - are featured as case studies in the RIAI / DHPLG's  'Old House New Home' publication on best conservation practice.

The 2020 joint publication by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland and the Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage provides guidance and illustrations of best practice in the reimagining and remodelling of historic properties to the demands of contemporary living.

Arguing for a wholistic approach, the compendium of case studies illustrates not only the heritage benefits of conserving historic properties, but also that re-use of the existing building stock is a key contributor to sustainable development - "the most carbon-neutral building is one that already exists."
