Re: Re: Palmerston Park (Grianblah)
Mr Whelan said the new house, designed by McCrossan O’Rourke Manning Architects, would be “in character” with the original house, Grianblah, which was built by Manning Robertson, a distinguished architect and town planner in Dublin during the 1920s and 1930s.
When it was put up for auction by Lisney estate agents in March 2005, the guide price was €3 million. With a floor area of 244 sq m (2,626 sq ft), the Arts and Crafts-style house was described as having a rambling layout with quirky interior details and secluded gardens.
Interesting…. cannot say I’m impressed by McCrossan O’Rourke – they must have known he didnt have permission to pull the whole thing down
there should be a mechanism that an architects registration board can smack them over the knuckles for this
similar to a rule in english football – this shoud qualify as bringing architecture practition into disrepute
