I think it’s awful. A bad mixture of the OPW’s dole office in Cobh and Manuel Aires Mateus’s hotel planned for the docklands. Although the original buildings had been demolished putting something like the original facade with a modern design to to the back would have been much more meaningful even if pastiche. Given the criticism of Dunnes and the terrace on Henry Street in another thread – a criticism I very much agree with – I’m surprised people are so positive towards this. What was there was terrible but this will be viewed as being as bad within two years in my opinion.
