Re: Re: Dublin Quays …latest addition.
This is a really great bit of regeneration in my opinion.
It was to be taller, but appealed by An Taisce to An Bord Snip Original :D, it was appropriately reduced to what now appears. The result I think looks fantastic – sure there maybe use of the current (and passing) trend of zig-zag off-setting of opes, but in this instance it all really works – with the building contemporary, yet echoing the inherited vernacular language of the quays terraces in terms of vertical emphasis of windows etc.
It appears to be an all-round good job; I can only say its a shame that “Celtic Tiger” Ireland’s development legacies were not more of this standard. Well done to all parties involved in the process – the finished product has been a good days work 🙂
