1935 – Imperial House, Donegall Square, Belfast, Co. Antrim

Architect: Kendrick Edwards


A subtle exercise in a stripped back Classical style with hints of Art Deco and Georgian glazing. Originally finished in Terracotta, the front facade was re-clad, circa 2003, with stone.

According to the Dictionary of Irish Architects, Kendrick Edwards was the only person from Ireland to submit a design in the competition for the RIBA headquarters in London in 1932.
