The masterplan for a new housing complex on Lower Dominick Street was as follows:
The site is located on part of the previous Dominick Street flats complex on the east side of Lower Dominick Street, Dublin 1, at the junction with Parnell Street. The Georgian street typology informs an understanding of the city as an integrated entity that includes monuments and focal points structured by a dense weave of the ordinary stuff, the places where people live and work. It is the Georgian house’s clear connection and role as definer of external space that has ensured its survival. The masterplan strategy for this project builds on this tradition and seeks to reinstate the historically well-defined character of Dominick Street as both place and conduit to the cultural heart of the city.
The Georgian skin is concerned with proportion, scale and rhythm. The primacy of the façade as an encloser of urban space overrides the expression of use inside. The material aesthetic is informed by the use of brick, which governs the scale and detailing of the façade. We have reiterated the street face as a brick skin. This skin has been articulated at the upper residential levels to give a depth to the facade that encloses a continuous balcony on to Dominick Street. This provides an acoustic and visual barrier for the apartments to the noisy street below.
I will publish photographs of the street when the current phase of the street regeneration project is complete.
A €40m project is advancing well, despite the interruptions caused by the Covid Public Health measures over the last twelve months. It is expected that construction will be completed by years’ end with the Housing Department of Dublin City Council beginning the allocation of homes in January 2022.
In total, this phase of the Dominick Street Regeneration project will see 12 one-bedroom apartments, 50 two-bedroom apartments and 10 three-bedroom apartments. Those residents who lived in the original Dominick Street complex and have Letters of Comfort or have expressed an interest in returning to the new apartment complex, will have the opportunity to accept a formal offer of alternative accommodation.
When I first use my iPhone XR a few years ago I did not realise that the images were HEIC which was a format that I could not easily process and today I was reviewing my catalogues I re-discovered many photographs from June 2019 that had been automatically converted to a usable format on the 16th November 2021. Now I know why my system had slowed to a crawl a few weeks ago.

I HAVE THIS AND THE 135mm LENS
VERSATILE FULL-FRAME LENS: The powerful lens for the mirrorless full-frame system of Sony fulfills the highest requirements. Despite its compact design, the image meets the expectations of professional photographers. EXCELLENT RESOLUTION AND HIGH CONTRAST: Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions. However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows. This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded. To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light. ROBUST AND WEATHERPROOF METAL CONSTRUCTION: Thanks to features that are designed to keep out dust and spray water, the lens is perfectly suited for critical outdoor conditions. It is also designed for many years of intensive use. SMOOTH AND RELIABLE AUTOFOCUS: The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.
