Yet again a nice design, but in the wrong place. Perfect for the dock’s, not in the middle of Georgian style Dublin.
😡 It is really starting to annoy me now how city centre designs DON’T EVEN BOTHER to reflect it’s surroundings into the buildings design.

I think it’s the limestone grey that is out of place here. It would have been interesting with the same design but different materials. How about recycled weathered looking red bricks for example ( there should be plenty around from all the Georgian/Georgian style buildings that have been knocked in recent times) or some other material that make it blend in more instead of the current thinking of ‘let’s make the building stand out as much as possible’. :rolleyes:
