Reusing Dublin

CATEGORY: Citizen Engagement CLIENT: Peter McVerry Trust YEAR: 2017-2019 LINK: - Reusing Dublin App

In Dublin, over 10,000 people are experiencing homelessness. At the same time there are literally thousands of vacant homes, but no data on how many and where they are.


We developed a participatory mapping project that enabled citizens to identify opportunities for bringing vacant and underused spaces back into use.


The project raised awareness of the issues and revealed data on about 400 properties, many of which are now being brought back into use.
