The building is located within a 1,952m2 site in the heart of the Grand Canal Basin ‘Hub’ and forms part of a thriving office/commercial and residential neighbourhood in close proximity to both Grand Canal Basin and the River Liffey to the north.
This office and residential mix is fully supported by local amenities and attractions including restaurants, bars, cafes and the nearby Grand Canal Theatre.
The existing building comprises three warehouses with 100% site coverage and with the external walls comprising brick and calp stone.
The design offers an office building proposal which meets current office space design standards whilst working within the constraints and opportunities offered by this existing warehouse building.
To that end the parallel new + historic architectural languages are clearly legible within the overall composition and neither dominates by virtue of careful and well considered construction detailing, roofline set backs and restoration of existing facades.
Open plan ‘warehouse style’ office space is offered over three floors around a central lightwell with a rooflight above.
Building occupants have private use of an external courtyard with direct access from the main building entrance.
