Our idea for the redevelopment of The Merrion Buildings was to preserve at all costs the historical character and charm of these centuries old, iconic buildings adjoining the acclaimed Merrion Hotel and overlooking Government Buildings. By introducing some much needed contemporary design, technology and building materials, we were able to achieve the right balance between the often conflicting needs of conservation and modern refurbishment; it called for evolution rather than revolution.
Parker Green created a truly 5 Star luxurious business centre over four floors, along with ground floor retail and a critically acclaimed basement restaurant. The finished product blends the old with the new through contemporary interior design and traditional Georgian architecture, and is now called home by some of the most innovative and forward thinking companies in Ireland.
To everyone’s immense satisfaction, The Merrion Buildings are once again regarded amongst Dublin’s most revered properties, and stand to do so for many more centuries to come.
