Project details:

The Capitol building is located on a key site in the Cork city core. Its western façade terminates the vista from Washington Street while the curved façade on St Patrick Street signals the newly formed pedestrian entrance to the world re-nouned English Market. The high-quality façade treatment is of simple classical proportions, accentuated by the use of preformed reconstituted stone panels and contrasting bronze windows and feature paneling. The building accommodates two floors of retail space, with three upper floors of office space. An iconic Cork restaurant, The Oyster Tavern, has been conserved and incorporated into the development on Market Lane.
