1980 – Irish Life Centre, Abbey Street, Dublin

Architect: Robinson Keefe Devane




A large development on the old Brooks Thomas yards consisting of blocks of various heights around courtyards both at streetlevel and raised. All the blocks have copper clad mansard roofs. There is living accommodation as well as a small mall and offices. The main courtyard which is open to Abbey Street at one end features a fountain and sculpture. The upper raised courtyard is an oasis of greenary.
