The new home of Arran Street East is a renovation and fit out of an 18th Century Dutch Billy building in Dublin’s Markets Quarter. Reflecting the simplicity of the ASE aesthetic, the palette of materials introduced is restrained and muted. Black steel-framed glazed screens fill the openings to the south and east. This language is also used to separate the retail and production space, allowing light and views into the working studio. The power-floated concrete floor runs throughout and, with the galvanised steel pipes used for ducting, quietly nods to the industrial aesthetic of the area and its history. The production space is designed around the movement of the pot, from delivery of the clay right up to the point of sale for customers. The restoration of the upper floors reinstated sash windows to original detail, with the rooms now being used as design studios and for pottery courses.
