Nassau Street Dublin
1790 – No. 38 Dame Street, Dublin
1967 – Norwich Union, Nassau Street, Dublin
Architect: Lardner & Partners
One of three office blocks built along here by Norwich Union in the 1960s destroying a collection of varied Victorian commercial buildings in the process. Sadly its construction meant the loss of McCurdy’s Law Club of 1870.
Lardner’s work was poor, designed to eke out the best cost per square foot and to maxinmise square footage on the site. Their other Dublin buildings are truly horrendous. Demolished.
