Dollard House
Wellington Quay and Essex Street, Dublin , 2016


This is a very large four-storey Protected Structure with facades to both Wellington Quay and Essex Street east. It was purpose built as a printing works and is an early iron framed industrial building. It has been in use as offices for many years. It is proposed to introduce retail/restaurant use at ground and first floors and replace later unsympathetic aluminium glazing to the facades. The original lightwell, which was roofed over, will be opened to form an internal courtyard. The project will bring some much needed life to the western end of the Temple Bar area and this section of the Quays.

We developed the general arrangements, external envelope design including conservation methodology and prepared the Planning Application and Licensing Drawings.
