Re: Re: National Irish Bank, Wilton Terrace
I’d agree with that, the earlier building was a lot more responsive to its context.
it was built more cheaply maybe, than the terraces around it.
But it still maintained a some-what similar scale and rhythm.
The new block on the other hand is just that, a blank mass of rather horrible greenish glass with pretty bad detailing everywhere.
Offering nothing to the street or the city.
The rear of that building on stephens green is appalling too, it looks like industrial units on the naas road somewhere. Pretty irresponsible of the planners and the architects(?) considering its position
