Harcourt Square is a significant city centre redevelopment site located in the prime business district of Dublin. The scheme is phased as part of an overall masterplan that will provide approximately 30,000m2 of high grade commercial office space.
The development is organised around an urban garden which acts as an important transition element between the historic Georgian Streetscape of Harcourt St and the larger scale and modern commercial developments to the south.
4 slender north south blocks radiating from a generous and open landscaped forecourt to Harcourt Street. The landscaped forecourt will be accessible to the public and will act as an external amenity space to the development.
The 4 slender blocks are configured so as to present 4 well proportioned buildings to Harcourt Street with a vertical emphasis to resonate with the proportions of the adjoining Georgian buildings.
The building is seven storeys over basement with a setback 7th floor. On Charlotte Way and Harcourt Street the 7th floor is set back to reduce the impact of the buildings on the public realm and to provide terraces as enhanced amenities to the offices. To the north and west, a series of setbacks on the upper floors address the context of the existing backlands development.
The development provides an opportunity to significantly enhance the public realm along Charlotte Way and act as a continuation of the active and vibrant activities on Camden Street.
