Hi Pauloneill,

I have long admired this building. Quite the little gem as far as I am concerned. It is on the list of protected structures as follows:

Number 7551: Ringsend Road (Corner of South Dock Road) Former Irish Glass Bottle Company: three-storey , Dublin 4 brick office with glass block entrance, feature window and clock

I was looking at it a few months ago and it seems the interior was mainly gutted during its incorporation into the new building which is surrounding it. I am not sure who designed it, but it reminds me of some sort of strange mix of early modernism and ‘The Amsterdam School’, which the Ringsend flats around the corner are inspired by. The clock is missing at present, but I am sure it wll be replaced upon completion of the works.
