Henrietta Street
Dublin, Irland
The outline of the blank lateral facade of No. 15 is therefore re-proposed facing onto Henrietta Place. The space between the two slices of building is filled in with a green facade which does not remove the previous void but, on the contrary, emphasizes it, inserting an element – nature – that is foreign to the architecture of Henrietta Street. This artifice produces two results, one conceptual and one technological. The first, as has been said, serves to negate the mass of the new building, re-proposing – ideologically – the pre-existing void.
