Architect: Gró Works

Explore 20a Mountpleasant, a multi-purpose building that provides a 4-bedroom dwelling, over a basement containing an architecture studio and a street level shop-front style exhibition and gathering space. Situated on a plot previously used as a shop premises and the rear garden of an historic dwelling on Mountpleasant Square, sitting between two Georgian terraces and the prominent red brick Mountpleasant Inn – the design of the project aimed to merge these contexts. The building was a prototype for the work methods of the practice and has informed future projects.

This building was designed by Gró Works, an architecture practice with a focus on crafted, thoughtful and delightful spaces. Their interests lie in complex but practical design, in solutions born out of collaboration with makers and in the serendipity of the unexpected.

Meeting point: Mountpleasant Ave Lower, Ranelagh, Dublin, Ireland, D06WP82
