This Limerick City Centre office over commercial infill development necessitated demolition and partial retention of the original structures at 103 / 104 O’Connell Street. A new contemporary facade contrasts the strong Georgian context while continuing the rhythm and proportion of the surrounding streetscape through the defined geometries and alignments of the polished sandstone cladding.
This urban infill redevelopment of the former GPO Site on Henry Street, Limerick involves the restoration and integration of 2 protected structures (1903 Mercantile Building and remains of the 1808 Hanging Gardens building) into a new multi-storey, mixed use, development. The retained structures and lower commercial levels frame an enclosed public courtyard while the over sailing office blocks form a backdrop to the listed buildings on the street edge.
