Built by Meade & Son to designs of Robert John Stirling in 1894 for William Burke, this imposing and attractive building adds a sense of grandeur and opulence to the streetscape, with its foliate details and richly moulded swags. The machine-made red brick combines beautifully with the details in terracotta, and these materials help to unite the building with its neighbours, which were remodelled at the time. The shopfront is a particularly eye-catching addition to the streetscape, and is an excellent example of Victorian design and craftsmanship. Nos.18-19 Lincoln Place, together with the adjoining buildings at 1-4 South Leinster Street, were recently sympathetically remodelled for the dental hospital by McCullough Mulvin Architects.
