Decorative glass gives lift to office block refurb

Decorative glass gives lift to office block refurb

AGC decorative glass has recently been specified as part of the extensive internal refurbishment of Block 5, a four-storey office building at the Irish Life Centre complex in Abbey Road, one of Dublin’s prime business locations. The 37,000 sq ft open plan accommodation has been finished to an exceptionally high standard, which included the specification of AGC decorative glass wall cladding for the lift lobby fit-out on each floor.

A total of 200m2 of painted glass was used featuring an exciting combination of matt and glossy finishes for maximum impact. The contrast of Matelac in Silver Grey, acid-etched on one side for a matt effect, blends seamlessly with the glossy look of Lacobel in Rich Yellow to create a striking colour combination that is echoed in other parts of the building.

Supplied by AGC customer Carlen Glass Merchants in Dublin, special care was taken prior to processing to calculate the geometry of the shaped pieces of glass that produce the eye-catching wall cladding design.

The refurbishment of Block 5 forms part of the huge redevelopment programme over recent years of the Irish Life Centre by leading financial services company Irish Life. Originally built in a number of large blocks in the 1970s and 1980s, the objective is to create an inviting environment for staff and visitors to the complex with new amenities and enhancement of public areas.
