At first impressions, the replacement for the Laughter Lounge IS quite an improvement. The building lines of the quay have been maintained. The materials are sympathetic to the surrounding red brick terrace with limestone dressings. I think it will help Eden Quay and will be a much needed improvement. In its place, do you really want a pastiche Georgian nonsense?
I see some call it another bit of nothingness – couldn’t Georgian Dublin be called that? The point of georgian terraces was that they would not detract from centrepieces in the vicinity – ie Belvedere House, Four Courts, Customs House, St Georges Church etc etc. Really, this new building will not seek attention in an area that has some magnificent example of architecture – and thats not a bad thing.
