Node is Ireland's first co-living residence. To make this 1940s building stand out in Georgian Dublin, DesignAgency worked with local architects NDBA to highlight the building’s existing “deco-retro” architectural features, such as the original mouldings, deco-style fireplaces and feature handrails on the winding staircase.The communal areas set the tone for a fun yet homey living experience, with the residents lounge inspired by the pubs of Georgian Dublin, with a contemporary twist. Each room features a heritage paint palette, pops of colour and mid-century-style furniture that were mixed and matched to give each apartment a unique feel, reflecting Node’s diverse residents and creative community. Integrating smart home technology such as Google Home, Nest eco-thermostats and super-fast wi-fi make this a residence fit for the tech-savvy global citizen, while paying homage to the rich history of Fitzwilliam Square. Tours will include the residents lounge and apartment 401.

Designed by: The Design Agency / NDBA Architects
