18th century Dublin office brought into digital age

An historic 18th century townhouse in Dublin has been transformed into state-of-the-art office space designed to meet the needs of digital media firms in Dublin.

The unique building has had a diverse range of occupiers over the years housing a feather merchant, a 1978 rebel lord, Dublin’s first lending library, and most recently a hostel.

Townhouse Twenty2 is the 7th building to be added to the offices of Dublin’s Digital Hub - a development agency initiative set up in 2003 aimed at fostering entrepreneurial technological development and innovation in Dublin.

The building comprises of 530 sq. m. of floor space with suites ranging from 18 to 26sq m. (approx. 3 to 9 person offices).

Careful restoration work has seen many of the buildings original historic features retained and integrated into its design, a common trend emerging in ‘trendy’ offices for creative digital media companies across Europe and America.

The building has been officially opened today, Monday 26th November by the Mayor of Dublin, Naoise Ó Muirí. Amongst the guests was Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte TD and Dublin’s City Manager, John Tierney.
