Baile Glas, Co. Cork  
A new local authority housing aimed at minimising energy requirements was yesterday hailed as a prototype for future housing development as well as providing invaluable training in sustainable building techniques.

Johnston Reid & Associates were the Engineers for this housing project in Co. Cork, which aims to bring best practice energy efficiency standards to social and affordable housing, with 50-60% energy savings. The design approach is sensitive to the rural context, and sets out to engender a sense of community.

The aims of the project are to realise a demonstration housing project that reflects the
contemporary debate on the building of low energy, cost effective sustainable housing and also to provide a new solution to social and affordable housing that is sustainable, engenders a sense of community and is sensitive to context.
