Duggan Brothers have completed The Irish Stock Exchange (Euronext) expansion works to create a single campus corporate headquarters. The old landmark Armoury building on Foster Place off College Green has now been linked back to the existing building on Anglesea Street as a result of the works completed. The two buildings have been linked through the construction of a new state-of-the-art five story contemporary office building which has married the old and the new structures to create a modern and vibrant statement building.
The project included demolition, restoration & conservation of the original buildings and the construction of the new five story office building. The classical grandeur of the Armoury building on the historic streetscape of Foster place has been brought back to life as a significant renovation and extension to the Irish Stock Exchange (Euronext) offices in the city Centre, which has been home to the Exchange for over 200 years. The project aimed to reveal the character of the historic buildings by carrying out a sensitive restoration. A light filled atrium mediates between the Armoury and the new open plan office extension, revealing a highly articulated cut limestone wall, with impressive arched openings which had been infilled during previous extension works.
The new building is a finely detailed and crafted contemporary building comprising, fair faced and board marked concrete structures, natural timber linings, welded aluminium balustrades and welded and polished brass details. The buildings create a charming mix of heritage and modern office space to provide a state of the art working environment for all the exchange staff under one roof.
