The ‘Green Building’ in Temple Bar is an innovative mixed use development of offices and apartments laid out around a six storey central courtyard .Compared with a conventional building of equal size the building saves 90% of energy costs. Energy requirements are supplemented by solar and wind power at roof level and hot water from an underground spring.
The Green Building was completed in September 1994 and received an RIAI Regional Award 1995, and has an A energy rating, contributing to the ESB grid. Since completion the project has been extensively published in Ireland and Europe and has come to be regarded as a key development in the evolution of sustainable building design.
