Eaton House

Located in the historic D4 district of Dublin, Eaton House has been designed to serve as the corporation’s new global headquarters. Built predominately during the early 19th century, the Georgian neighborhood has, over time, evolved into a rich tapestry of residential and commercial buildings. The site enjoys the historic context and charm of the neighborhood as well as close proximity to parks, retail shops, international businesses, and embassies. 

Designed to be a building of its time while respectful of its historic context, Eaton House utilizes the structural frame of the existing building but re-envisions the exterior enclosure in linear coursed stone, clear vision glass, and cast glass. Carefully considering the adjacent historic structures, the modern façade design is rooted in Georgian architectural proportion and consistent with Dublin City Council’s objective that new architecture be “contemporary both in substance and style, perform to highest environmental standards, and clearly reflect the spirit of our age.”
