The VHI is planning to develop new headquarters on top of the former Scots Presbyterian church hall on Abbey Street in Dublin city centre. The church will become the main entrance and foyer for the office building, while the church hall and former lecture theatre will have “a new lightweight glass and metal exoskeleton structure” of up to seven storeys built above and around them. Plans for the development, which have been submitted to Dublin City Council, were published on archiseek.com, an online discussion forum for architects. Designed by McCauley Daye O’Connell, the new building will integrate with the existing VHI offices and create a U-shaped building around the church, which will be refurbished.
