Italianate style building built as the offices of the Dublin Artisans’ Dwellings Company to the designs of Charles H. Ashworth, at a cost of £3,703. The contractor was J. & P. Good. As one of the few Edwardian structures on this part of the street, it stands taller than the rest of the row and has a pronounced vertical emphasis in the streetscape. Retaining most of its external fabric intact, the building adds to the wealth of architectural variety on this historic streetscape.
