Reimagined cottages and Georgian Houses on show as part of Open house Dublin
October 11, 2022
The Irish architecture foundation are running guided tours as part of Open House Dublin during the weekend of the 14th-16th of October.
Tbe guided tours include over 150 different events all of which are free of charge and taking place across over 100 different sites in Dublin City.
A highlight of the events includes a tour of a reimagined Georgian house. The project which consisted of combining floors to create a stunning three storey apartment which also features a roof garden. The purpose of these projects and guided tours is to give an indication to people of how modern quality of living standard can be created using older or abandoned buildings throughout the City, allowing the modern to sit alongside and compliment the historic.
There will also be a tour commencing in Grand Canal Dock. Open House Dublin will be blessing guests with a very exclusive look at the landmark residential tower on Saturday the 15th of October, with the architects promising an array of ‘Breath -taking’ views of the City and surrounding sea scapes from Irelands largest building.
Another extremely intriguing offering includes the guided tour of a 1930’s semi detached Dublin house which has been since renovated and extended. This was a project which had seen some previous additions over the years with many of them being questionable at best. These new renovations looked at providing a new order to the house itself including a new framing of the building as well as improving the performance of walls and more.
These are certainly events that for those interested, are not to be missed.
