Re: Re: Irish say no to PVC windows
What a fantastic building! Can’t say I’ve come across it before – was it built as a private development or Corporation built?
The stairwell block in particular is great; if there’s any consolation to be had it’s the fact that windows in communal areas are those that tend to last the longest as they’re just neglected, so these may well have some life in them yet.
Indeed overall it’s most surprising all of the flat windows have survived for as long as they have.
Doesn’t granite and especially grey limestone work so well with wine brick? The perfect combination.
The brickwork in the pics there would suggest an even earlier date than 40s/50s – looks like late 1930s, which’d be interesting if built as a private development…
