A prominent office building in the heart of Dublin’s central business district has been redeveloped with a distinctive new Petersen brick façade supplied by European Building Materials.
Designed by MCA Architects for developer IPUT, the redevelopment of the former European Union office in Ireland at 40 Molesworth Street reflects the rich heritage of the surrounding area yet the façade design is completely modern, with an additional floor at roof level formed of fully glazed elevations. Internally, there is 2,972 m2 of high grade office accommodation over 6 floors of flexible, light filled space.
The new brick façade comprises linear Petersen hand thrown bricks in three colours. It uses the same mix created for the iconic Turnmill Building in Clerkenwell, London, in conjunction with European Building Materials. We finalised the attractive mix of shades and ensured the bricks were correctly premixed to the architect’s brickwork design.
