It certainly would not be in my top ten either, neither would the building to its left with what I assume is a copper clad roof,
Now do we blame the developers for asking for this type of building, or the planners for allowing them?
I disagree, I think the Camden Court scheme is actually one of the better designed projects in Cork at the moment. The use of limestone and copper materials harks back to those associated with the city many years ago offering a pleasant variation from the boring brick finishes of the projects either side of it on John Street and Camden Wharf. Its height is respectful to the Georgian terrace houses fronting the quayside, it gradually steps back and up to 6-storeys in a manner considered of its location. The forms found at roof-level are an interesting break from the standard and frankly boring precendent found across so many of the city's developments - the flat, level roof-top. Thank your lucky stars this scheme was given the all-clear versus the previous proposal for the site.
