Highlight Student Living at Thomas Street offers high quality student accommodation in a grouping of buildings extending from Thomas Street to Hanbury Lane. This recently completed development brings further vitality to the street. The façade of the former Frawleys department store has been fully restored and the interiors of the historic street front buildings are refurbished. A new rear courtyard acts both as a buffer between the retained buildings on Thomas Street and the new building and serves as an external circulation / breakout space for the students. The new accommodation building is arranged around a further south facing central courtyard and forms a new edge to St. Catherine's Lane to the west.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Wheelchair accessible. Photography is not allowed on this tour.

Designed by: O'Mahony Pike Architects
Building Date: 2018
Location: 32 Thomas St, Dublin 8
