Further to yesterday’s post on the new €36.6 million library and arts centre [currently under construction] in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin.
The view from the pier.
“This is what it will look like from the top of the pier. It dominates the seafront and blocks out the lovely facade of the Royal Marine [Hotel], and is totally unsympathetic to its surroundings.
Given its proximity to the harbour, the bunker-esque style windows are ill thought out, and I think it’s amazing that there are no balconies or viewing platforms. The money should have been used to redevelop the old baths although they probably would have made a hames of that too.”
