The client tasked us with creating a design concept that blended contemporary sanitaryware/tiles with the beautiful traditional Georgian features within the building.
Working closely with the architect, we provided a contemporary take on traditional floor tiles. The main entrance lobby is fitted with Portland Stone, full of depth and character and beautifully complimenting the existing architectural aesthetic.
The bathrooms are finished out with a matt porcelain wall and floor tile in a 20x20cm format giving the bathrooms a soft fresh setting. The tile palette tones compliment the specified ware and work well in the mono chromatic concept.
Adjacent to Dail Eireann/Leinster House on Kildare Street, is Molesworth Street, in the heart of Dublin.
29 Molesworth St was built circa 1810 – a 2 bay, 4 story building with typical red brick façade and timeless sash windows as key features.
Versatile provided a range of modern and sleek bathroom vanity units in pressed steel with characteristics such as enamelled splashback combined with the basin, as one piece of stunning furniture. The monochrome aesthetic of white glazed steel with matt black taps and black shelving really elevated the overall look and feel of the washrooms. The glazed steel basins are particularly hygienic thanks to their sealed and non-porous surface when the antibacterial properties of silver are combined with the glaze. This glaze creates a bacterial and fungicidal surface that naturally neutralises bacteria and fungi.
Wall hung WCs in sleek, minimalist designs with discreet flush plate make the washrooms feel spacious and will allow for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Reaffirming the need to reduce the spread of bacteria in public spaces, sensor taps have been used in public washroom within the building, making for a touch free solution and offering peace of mind to the user by reducing the risk of bacteria spreading.
