A 1930 ART DECO BUILDING

KODAK HOUSE A 1930 ART DECO BUILDING

KODAK HOUSE RATHMINES DUBLIN [A 1930 ART DECO BUILDING]

I was advised that this building, originally known as Kodak House, is one of two listed Art Deco buildings in Dublin. It was designed by Donnelly, Moore and Keatinge, completed in 1930, with later modifications by William Sedgewick Keatinge (1949-51) and more recent work by Paul Keogh Architects.

I hope that Archer’s Garage is not the other listed Art Deco building because of the following incident: On the June bank holiday weekend, 1999, the art deco, grade 1 listed garage on Fenian Street was illegally demolished by contractors working for the O'Callaghan hotel group. A public outcry followed, and while developer Noel O'Callaghan claimed this was the reason why he reconstructed the Garage, he was in fact ordered by Dublin City Council on threat of a €1,000,000 fine and/or imprisonment. The reconstruction is far from accurate to the original.
