157-164 Townsend Street, Dublin 2

Set in the heart of Dublin’s central Townsend Street, MCA have designed this modern 9 storey over double basement building.

The ground floor street frontage is animated by a double height entrance foyer and also features a large glazed window behind which the social and collaborative functions are located offering interaction with the street.

A striking façade of profiled metal fins

The top office floor is set back and includes an external terrace along the length of the building offering full views of the River Liffey. Access to the basement car park is via a double car lift arrangement.

Design features include a repeating array of metal fins arranged to each floor level, which is offset to on ascending floors. This provides a dynamic waved appearance to building which is particularly apparent when viewed passing across the adjacent rail bridge.
