Reply To: 32-floor building planned for Dublin
I agree on the lifts Fin but in the context of the accusations of snobbery it needed to be raised.
In the context of the facilities many integrated developments are commenced. Many of these developments historically did not have the ‘social benefit’ elements completed leaving the residents with little or none of the elements that make communities livable.
It is not the architects fault if the site managers fail to maintain facilities down the line. But it is a wise move for architects to conduct consultations with prospective site managers. Or be aware of all the things that can go wrong. I think open balconies at this height could present problems.
I am still of the opinion that on design grounds this is a poor submission.
That it is not the correct site for a 32 or similarly tall building.
I prefer the idea of tall office buildings located at integrated transport hubs.
