It would appear to be overscaled by at least 1 floor, you get the feeling that the design have been compromised in an attempt to squeeze in as much office space as possible! The architects here were clearly looking to capitalise on the positive reaction to Carr Cotter Naessens award winning building across the street. Now it seems Healy & partners have developed quite a fondness for limestone/sandstone cladding and glazed frontages, with 2 such buildings on O Connell street already on their portfolio.
A resemblance between the two appears to be there (Carr Cotter NÃ¤ssens / Healy Partners). I donâ€™t think that the planned office is overscaled to the former post office buildings at the front. However it might be overscaled for the narrow Post Office Lane at the rear? I am curious to see if the developer can pull this off successfully. For sure Henry Street has quite a contrast of buildings to date.
