Molesworth Street, Dublin

Reddy A+U were commissioned with the exciting task of rejuvenating a stale 17th century protected Georgian townhouse to a modern office use. The team designed and delivered an additional new 5-storey office building to the rear and a 3-storey glazed atrium linking this to the original building. The design allows the original building to breath comfortably and shows a respect by separating the old from the new.


The building plot is deep and narrow, offering minimal street frontage to front and rear. The placement of a glazed atrium and courtyard brings significant light into the centre of the plan and internal voids distribute daylight throughout the plan.

The atrium is the central orientating feature of the building, functionally linking old and new parts, while visually separating both to allow each part to express its distinctive character.

The new harmonised brick facades convey a calm and welcoming appearance through subtle textures. The generous full height windows respect the historical proportions of the existing building while further enhancing internal daylight levels.

The project is accredited with LEED Gold standard.
