Designed to revolutionise the historic heart of Dublin 2,
The Sharp Building is a spectacular example of modern commercial architecture that will undoubtedly address and exceed the aspirations of any
This exceptional landmark statement by the McGarrell Reilly Group will comprise of 4,157 sq m of modern Grade A office space set over seven floors, transforming the streetscape of Hogan Place.
“The proposed development occupies a prominent corner site in the city. The corner is expressed as a fully glazed three dimensional quadrilateral, which is sculpted to define the entrance and to articulate the corner. The glass form is contrasted by a solid French limestone cubic facade which terminates the terrace. Both forms are bookended and cradled by brick recessed elements which reflect the urban context
on the city.”
Extending to 113 sq m, the reception combines intelligent design and functionality to complement the unique and striking building façade,
forming a lasting impression.
The architect’s vision to create a ‘light and corporate’ profile is translated through the use of a set-back revolving entrance, off Hogan Place, with a double-height void section on the corner profile of the building.
The Sharp Building is targeting a LEED Platinum Certification and incorporates a broad spectrum of sustainable principles to achieve an A3 BER rating.
