So do I; H St needs a fillip. I take it this is by the architects (deB+M?) who did that masterly (or mistressly) newbuild at Cork IT.
Good brickwork is a timeless aesthetic and ‘native’ to Dublin, BUT what is it – a house, an office, a museum?
The rear view shows some interesting contrasts: the Amsterdam School flats, the ‘decent’ contemporary do., the absolutely dire neglect of the rear facades of the adjoining houses (why is grey cement the default material?) and the rubbish surfacing of the lane. But what a gem Henrietta St is – I don’t care how twee it gets, it just needs a good kick up the arse. I think this will do it.
