Though I have not seen the building yet, the list of good quality building materials used seem to be impressive. Might even inspire the Belltable to develop the nearby Royal Theatre as a Filmhouse. Any new developments on that?

Elliot Maguire Landers Architects

The project provided an opportunity to design a public building on an important corner site in Limerick City, close to the newly rejuvenated square at Tait’s clock. A strong architectural form was employed to reinforce the streetscape and the stone cladding used on these elevantions augments the public nature of the building. The jura limestone (in a random pattern) also gives warmth and richness to the building, with a stack bonded Carlow Limestone used to highlight the public entrance. This contrasts with the “softer” treatment to the garden façade, where render and oak screens are used.
The foyer has a limestone floor, and a stone clad stairs rises to the first floor research library. The library has a series of education/meeting rooms along its northern face; study carrels are located along the southern façade in a projecting oak screen of windows, shutters and louvers, all to control the flow of ventilation and sunlight ton to the library floor. The joinery and furniture was an integral part of the design and was hand crafted in Irish oak.
The stone inscription over the main consists of the phrase “In the beginning” translated into six languages, including the Irish version. A Joycean quote is also inscribed at ground level.
