There is a building available to view on this site titled as the old Goodall’s Factory in Fairview. I am currently searching for a building on which to base my final project for my interior design degree and am interested in this one at the moment. I went to visit it today and found out that it has a listed art deco facade and vaulted ceilings that are being kept throughout the current renovation. It was originally built as a bonding house and its last use was as a print finishers. Current reconstruction aims to turn it into offices and appartments.
I wish to find out any information on the building, its site, history as a premises and its art deco origins – how true to the movement etc. I understand there were flea markets held in the area in the 60’s / 70’s also.
Any info anyone has would be great to hear. Thanks
thanks for that paul, was unaware of the technological possibilities – but now i see! unfortunately though, the site offers no pics of the exterior. which, as i saw from my visit today and the redev architects website is quite interesting. the front facade is enclosed with a tower/turret at either end and the detailing on the facade seems to be quite a good example of dublin art deco.
