Don't you touch that building clare mc! Lay so much as a finger in it now and...
One of my favourites in the city - it's got a wonderfully confident proud air to it, with its marching dormers and strong chimneys making a powerful statement.
It's a design well-suited to the quays, built to be noticed and in a way intended to very much so improve the quality of design along the Liffey. A pity it didn't work out that way.
It's remincent of many continental quayside/waterfront buildings - tall, confident, elegant, with windows that both capture a view as well as create one. A fine building.
