Each tour began with a brief presentation on the history of the plaza, including the influence of Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building in New York on the original architect of the 1970’s complex – STW’s Ronald Tallon. The three structures are a rare example of 20th century buildings with protected status, something which we carefully designed the scheme for the 2013-2018 refurbishment around when we were appointed as conservation architects to bring the complex up to Grade A 21st Century office standards.
This work included:
Visitors were also treated to spectacular views of Dublin from the 7th floor, where the double skin added during the refurbishment to reduce heat gain was explained.
Thank you to everyone who came along and to the owners of Miesian Plaza for allowing us to conduct the tours.
