Marine House Refurbishment + Extension
Updated: Jan 17
A decision to Grant Permission for a major refurbishment and extension of Marine House, Dublin 2 on behalf of our clients, Hibernia REIT plc from Dublin City Council.
Marine House occupies a central position in the Clanwilliam Court office complex which stretches from Lower Grand Canal Street to the north east to Lower Mount Street to the south west. This is a highly prominent location with a significant south east facing address to the important linear amenity space of the Grand Canal.
The scheme proposal is to refurbish and extend Marine House in order to significantly enhance its architectural treatment and the workplace environment that it offers. To that end it is proposed to strip it back to its essential structure of concrete columns, beams and slabs and to re imagine it from that starting point. This innovative approach to design and sustainability offers many environmental and low energy benefits over an approach of wholesale demolition and reconstruction.
In addition to creative reuse of the existing structure, an innovative approach to environmental engineering incorporating a number of low carbon and energy conservation measures further enhance the buildings performance to achieve its target of LEED gold rating.
