Just thought I’d share this with you guys, took these shots the other night too.
I think it’s just off Lwr Leeson St, or the next street east, name escapes me now. The building is definately south of the Canal if that helps. It’s a pretty exciting development, given the context. Hands up who wants some of that cladding! I reckon it’ll do the rounds in the relevant magazines soon….
And anyone know which county council oversees this area? Is it still within DCC authority? It’s kinda relevant with regard to planning permission, etc.

I think it’s Athlumney Villas off Ranelagh Road just south of the canal.

Was up there today. Very unusual indeed. By architectstm/ architectsbm of Rathmines. A 3D tour and other pictures of it is here http://www.architectsbm.com/ .
Peculiar marketing strategy in that it seems they dont know whether to call themselves “architectsbm” or “architectstm”.
According to their blurb: “Bates Maher established 2002 by Kevin Bates and Tom Maher. Both studied architecture in ucd graduating in 1995/96. Practice’s work has received special mention in AAI awards 2004, RIAI regional award 2005,OPUS architecture & construction award 2005. Downes Medal AAI awards 2006. ArchitectsTM established 2004 by Tom Maher.”
They have been featured in Wallpaper and elsewhere…Very trendy indeed;) :p 😀

Hey thanks for that Hutton. Looking through their site, I was actually familiar with some of their projects but had never made the link between them. It’s nice to see uncompromising architecture like this being built in Dublin, bodes well for the future.

Don’t know where to put this so I’ll put it here.
You’re starting to see some better buildings on mews lanes now. This is on Lotts, behind Abbey St. Middle. The facing white brick is glazed. The twist at the top must be to get more west light.

i saw that building off ranalagh road the other day. the solid base piece looks great, very interesting. but that copper semi-circle piece is terrible.it jars with the rest of the building in a horrible way.the two just dont go together. does this curved bit have any particular meaning (reference to the dome in rathmines?) i think theres still time to get rid of it and save the rest of the building.
