The quality of design is reflected in the combination of contemporary architecture with superior craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.
This Henry J. Lyons’ project for developer IPUT is a subtle landmark office building in the heart of Dublin’s business and cultural life. The design combines contemporary architecture with superior craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail to produce a unique building finished to exceptionally high standards.
10 Molesworth Street is a sensitive and contemporary response to the remarkable streetscape in which it sits in the epicentre of Dublin’s Georgian and commercial core. Completed in 2018, this six-story above double-basement corner building adds a landmark office building with a heavily landscaped garden at its heart.
The site is located on the corner of Molesworth Street and South Frederick Street and forms part of the vista which terminates with Leinster House. The striking double height entrance is framed by full height, floor-to-ceiling windows and features a carefully composed texture of finely honed travertine pavements and cladding.
Highest environmental credentials.
10 Molesworth Street is the first new office building in Ireland to target LEED Platinum standard with BER A3 building energy rating. The emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency in the design of the building, underwritten by LEED accreditation, ensures that building occupiers can minimize both operational costs and environmental impact.
Responding sensitively to the historic context.
The new building has been carefully composed to respond sensitively to the rhythm, texture and variety of the historic context. This new development has been designed to reflect its prestigious environment and the rich heritage of the surrounding area.
A natural advantage.
The L-shaped block is carved out in response to its immediate context and provides natural light to lower-level accommodation via lightwells and glazed atrium. At roof level, terraces provide generous roof gardens for occupants allowing panoramic views of the city. The private landscaped gardens and terraces provide a unique outdoor amenity with unrivalled views towards Leinster House, Government Buildings, the Mansion House and further around the city.
