Re: Re: Dublin’s Ugliest Building
More ‘interesting’ than ugly?
Certainly not ugly. I’ve a great fondness for that whole Lombard Street West area (that is it, no?), much of which is based on the ‘variations on a theme’ feel of the different streets. The original buildings were subtly different, and many of them have been further altered with such features as this bay window. I wouldn’t usually argue from this point of view, but in the case of Portobello and environs I think it’s a cornerstone of the character of the area. (Though I could do with less PVC and aluminium, obviously. 🙂 )
If that’s your ‘hood, Punchbowl, you’re a lucky old so-and-so.
