The house at 37 Merrion Square is a protected structure and was designed most likely by Samuel Sproule, Architect and built between 1780 and 1786. Internal stuccowork was completed by the stuccodore Robert West. The house was in reasonable condition but has now been extensively restored, consistent with best conservation practice.The new build consists of a sub-parterre level over most of the site, which is a half level above Stephen’s Place to the rear, with a split level three-storey mews above. The new build provides seven classrooms and accommodation for teachers and administration staff. A new garden is provided on the podium level between the existing house and the extension in line with the historical precedent.
