The South George’s Street scheme is a mixed-use retail and office development on a prime corner site in the heart of Dublin’s city centre. The project involves the refurbishment and extension of an existing period building. The red-brick façade will be retained on upper floors with contemporary stone shopfronts and frameless glazing provided at ground floor level. Two fully-glazed setback penthouse floors are situated at fourth and fifth storey level, with a contemporary aluminium flat roof.
A contrasting, contemporary extension along Stevens Street will provide the new main entrance to the development. The double-skinned office façade of the extension comprises an external layer of curtain walling with bronze anodized framing and an inner façade incorporating a large sheet of corten steel.
