Dublin House / Fishamble Street

2012

In 2012 the opportunity to test Dublin House became a reality when a Dublin City Council owned site on Fishamble Street became earmarked for development.

The two teams were once again called upon to reimagine the co-op development in this location. Over several months the design, model and brochure came together to be presented in August 2012.

Dublin House 2.0: Fishamble Street was launched on the 21st July 2014 with an open call for interested groups to make submissions to Dublin City Council.
