Savills HQ, Dublin s
Reddy A+U have combined the original character and period details of the original Georgian building with contemporary office space planning, to provide a bright and lively working environment for Savills’ Irish Headquarters building.
The original Georgian building had fallen into dis-repair but has through sensitive intervention, been re-purposed into a modern office space for over 200 personnel.
In January 2013, No. 33 Molesworth Street stood as a partially occupied building that was falling into disrepair. Reddy A+U were brought on board early on, to assist in marking this property as the new HQ building for Savills Ireland. The project commenced on site in September 2013 and was completed 5 months later.
The achievement of a contemporary office environment aesthetic with clean, crisp lines, an open desk arrangement, central filing and interactive informal breakout spaces and canteen, were some of the design concepts which were developed as part of the project. Light penetration was paramount for bringing life into the previously dark and deep floor plates. This was achieved through the refurbishment of a double height glass-roofed atrium and the introduction of a large Barrisol light over the centre of the open plan area successfully illuminating the space with a natural daylight effect.
As part of the project, we restored a number of the original period features and integrated mechanical and electrical services with minimal intervention into the fabric of the protected structure.
