With an emphasis on safe, high quality accommodation in a professionally managed development, the project provides a variety of amenities: individual and group spaces; quiet and noisy spaces; active and meditative spaces, music room, gym, yoga studio, cinema, lounge deck, coffee docks, meeting/study rooms, exercise track, contemplative space and roof garden.
Brick and glazing systems provide individuality and character to each of the blocks while allowing the two buildings to be read as part of the same idiom, rooted in the architectural history of Dublin.
