The renovation and conservation of the landmark Kodak building in Rathmines has given a new lease of life to one of Dublin’s few remaining examples of Art Deco architecture. The client emphasised that the design be sympathetic to the robust industrial style of the original, as opposed to the ubiquitous carpet, suspended ceiling and fluorescent environment of many contemporary office interiors. The open-plan space is planned to create a studio-type arrangement, with teams organised around specific projects and internal rooms provide enclosed spaces for private meetings and back-up services. The most significant intervention is the new mezzanine floor - and its curved steel rooflight structure - which runs the whole length of the 1st floor and provides extra space, additional daylight, and an attractive work environment.
