Appraisal

Architectural design and detail are apparent in the form and scale of this building. The façade of the building is enlivened by the moulded render detail, with the channelled render, moulded string courses, and render entablature creating textural variations and articulating the form of the building. This building is representative of architectural design in the first half of the twentieth century in Ireland.
