Personally, I quite like the building. Is it theme-parky? Perhaps, but I think that suits the use. I just dont see it as being ‘horrendous’. Newmarket is a sad space to be honest. A lost area of Dublin, greatly unloved. I think the two new distillery’s, combined with the existing flea market and co-op will reinvent this place and will definitely attract new uses to redevelop the ugly warehouses that crowd around the periphery.
Yes I don’t see a problem. It’s a bit ‘Galway style’ but if it fits their need it’s not an objectionable building.
Have you seen the new Dun Laoghaire library? A godawful box in the same modernist rut all irish ‘name’ architects (and college faculties for that matter) are stuck in for years, the kind of building the public hate and architects give each other awards for.
