17 - 21 Mount Street, Dublin 2
This project is located in Dublin City Centre within the prestigious area of Mount Street. In recent times the location has developed a mixture of commercial and residential premises. The building which was formerly known as the American College has had two significant changes made to it. The first was the refurbishment of the existing listed building fronting onto Mount Street and the second was the addition of a new three storey extension over a double basement apartment block to the rear of the development.
The refurbishment of the existing Georgian building provided a total of 11 high end residential units. Under the supervision of the Conservation Architect the works involved a strip out and refurbishment comprising of extensive upgrading to the existing structure. This progressed having closely complied with the terms of fire rating, acoustics and structural stability, with all elements having to adhere to strict conservation criteria and guidelines.
The 3 storey extension is to the rear of the development and provides 16 residential units over a double basement. The construction also comprises a secant piled basement carpark and an RC framed structure clad with brick faced external facades.
