placemaking

STILLGARDEN  Golden Bridge industrial estate Inchicore Dublin 8
A place to grow. A place to meet. A place to eat. 

A Green Edge Project

Working with Stillgarden Distillery we are transforming the Goldenbridge Industrial Estate from a purely industrial space into a more communal, welcoming green space for the neighbourhood.

Working with Stillgarden in a phased project, we are showing how greening and placemaking transforms a harsh, dreary industrial space into a potential social oasis for the community, the customers and working people in the area.

 

Our Vision

Create a place to linger, lunch and labour.

To do so, Goldenbridge Industrial Estate must be transformed into a PLACE that looks beautiful, is welcoming to the local community and has sustainability to the fore.

Using the catalyst of growing botanicals and fruit for Gin making on-site, this project will also serve as a template to create green spaces in any industrial landscape across the city. 

 

Our Placemaking activity creates green spaces that function as connective tissue for the community it resides in. 

  • It will nurture links into local communities through active educational growing programmes.  With community-based participation at its centre it will capitalise on the local community’s assets, inspiration and potential.  

  • It will contribute to people’s happiness, health and well-being.

  • Through Placemaking, employees will have a sense of improving the neighbourhood and re-inventing the public spaces.  

  • They will create new patterns of use by improving the physical and cultural identity that defines the place.

The Ark Children's Cultural Centre - Dublin,

A Green Edge Project

Green Edge were commissioned by The Ark to create a concept for the new National festival for Children in June 2018

BIRDS IN THE CITY

was an ambitious process-led project. to create a new green space to attract bird life, insects and flowers at the ARK in Dublin's city centre– The design was informed by the ideas and artworks created by local children.

Families were invited to come and explore the building, encouraging them to get creative, dig in, and get their hands dirty

Designs and ideas were used by Green Edge to inform and inspire the design of The Arks entrance garden. This unique child led approach enabled local children to create a lasting impact on their public cultural space in Temple Bar, creating a space that encourages birds and other wildlife into one of the busiest corners of the city.
