Typical Burke Kennedy Doyle
Not a lot of imagination but it is an interesting piece of commercial extension and the I absolutely agree that it would be a lot better if the polished granite were a matt limestone.
I don’t have too much of a problem with the terrace of 1940’s ‘Georgian style pastiche’ being replaced it will be interesting to see what replaces it. I have always found the existing buildings very dark and unlike the real Georgian buildings there are no pastel shaded bricks to add light to the streetscape.
Thankfully Martin Reynolds will have no more influence over this area, his extension to the Mercer St hospital c/w the pvc windows really annoys me as does his legoland RCSI carpark/hotel.
