1966 – Hume House, Northumberland Road, Dublin

Architect: Lardner & Partners


Hume House is named after its developers, a UK based body called Hume Holdings. Originally the seven floors of office space were placed on columns but during a makeover in 1983, this was filled in for extra office space. One of the ugliest buildings in Ballsbridge, it opened the floodgates for massive amounts of unsuitable office developments in the area. Constructed on the site of the famous Hammersmith Ironworks of Richard Turner.
