Silken Park, Passive Housing Scheme, Citywest Dublin

Location: Citywest, Co. Dublin

Project overview:

Ground breaking new housing development of 2, 3, & 4-bed “A” rated family homes

Full project details of the Silken Park project by Durkin Residential.


Planned and designed to meet the requirements of a modern lifestyle. Superbly finished inside and out from the spacious kitchen, contemporary bathrooms and open living space, with private rear gardens.


Built to the highest standards and designed without compromise, Silken Park offers the finest quality housing on the market today. This development provides homes to suit all, from first time buyers to larger families and keen investors.


Designed with both comfort and energy efficiency in mind, the latest phase in the Silken Park development is fully certified ‘Passive House’. This highly regarded internationally recognised certification guarantees you a home that is airtight, super-efficient, and maintains regular levels of heat and ventilation for a healthier living environment. The most notable aspect for home-owners will be significantly reduced energy bills.

 Products installed:
  • Nilan Compact P unit, which includes an exhaust air heat pump combined with passive heat recovery ventilation
  • Nilan Air 9 air-to-water heat pump as back-up, which distributes heat via underfloor heating only during the coldest winter periods.
