A Cairn home is designed to be lived in. Good design is an integral part of every home we build.

Today's families have a new set of preferences and range of activities. A Cairn home anticipates the diverse space requirements that suit modern lifestyles and pairs these with other priorities such as natural light and energy conservation. For example,  the Cairn Albany development in South Dublin, incorporates a full height, corner glazed unit in the dining area of the houses designed to catch the valuable southerly sun rays, drawing more light into the kitchen and living areas.

Attention to detail

At every stage of design, we think about how our customers are going to live in our homes. We pay careful attention to the positioning of door openings and fixed elements such as radiators to make spaces easier to furnish. Each development is bespoke and we continually review internal layouts to ensure we have got the very most from the space.


We believe that simple innovations can make a big difference, such as taps that use the latest aerated technology to cut water wastage or smart technology thermostats that allow you to control your heating or hot water straight from your mobile.  As our lives evolve, so should our homes.

Beyond the front door

Our work doesn't stop at your front door either; a significant part of the planning for a new Cairn home goes in to ensuring the surrounding outdoor environment also surpasses our homebuyers’ expectations.

We work with leading landscape design architects to create modern, functional and enjoyable spaces for residents and visitors alike.


Design Led Solutions

Take Cairn Parkside for example, our latest development of family homes off the Malahide Road, Dublin. As you stroll around the new park area incorporating a walking track, play zones, and varied, colourful planting what you won't see is the 500,000 litre storm attenuation tank safely protecting your home from flooding beneath it all.
