Fire Restaurant, Dublin
Seán Harrington Architects
The architectural brief for this large replacement façade project in the grounds of the Mansion House Dublin was openness and light. GLF were commissioned to design, manufacture and install a series of storey height glass curtain walls incorporating both hinged and sliding doors.
The large insulated glass units are split vertically, the joints are expressed visually with a specially chosen black silicone sealant. The central feature of the building, is the all glass central rooflight which is designed at an angle of 3 degrees, the glass is a multi-ply laminate construction which utilises Pilkington Opti White - Low Iron glass to maximise natural day light. Toughened laminated glass fins support the glazed rooflight.
The project won the 2015 RIAI Best Commercial/Retail Award.
