An existing, protected, Georgian Terrace building, 55 South William Street is located in the heart of what was once Dublin’s garment district.

Redevelopment works will upgrade the floor structures and refurbish the building to allow for café/restaurant space from basement to 1st floor and office space on second and third floor.

The rear extension will be rebuilt and reconfigured to provide an outdoor terrace area for the café/restaurant. The key challenge associated with upgrading the existing structure for its future use is being sympathetic to the original fabric of the building, for example, conserving the ornate cornicing and historic ceilings below each floor level.
