Irish Georgian Society Awards by Stephen Moylan


There was a great turnout at the Irish Architectural Archive last night for the Irish Georgian Society Awards, as Lindsay Conservation Architects scooped a deserved award for The Shelbourne Dublin, a Renaissance Hotel.

We were shortlisted for conservation works to the internal courtyard facades of GPO Witness History. It was lovely to see the diversity of entrants and judges, chaired by Edward McParland.

It was truly humbling to be shortlisted among so many outstanding entries, and it's also fantastic to see the steady growth of awareness of our built environment.

GPO Witness History Interpretive Centre by Stephen Moylan

This is a culturally significant project in one of Dublin's most iconic buildings on the city’s main thoroughfare, O’Connell Street. It was opened to the public last year for the 2016 centenary of the 1916 Rising. 

The high profile project involved the construction of a new exhibition centre within the restored courtyard of the GPO. The public engagement with the iconic GPO has been hugely enhanced with the opening of the new interpretive centre. We are proud to have been involved in this significant project.
