Sunlight Chambers - Dublin

Designed as Dublin offices for Lord Lever (of Lever Brothers), by the Liverpool architect Edward Ould who also designed Port Sunlight. Built in a romantic Italianate style with its wide overhanging eaves, tiled roof, and arcaded upper floors, the building boasts one of the most unusual architectural features in Dublin – two multicoloured terracotta friezes depicting the history of hygiene. Until recently these friezes were quite dirty but a restoration last year restored the building to its multicoloured brilliance. [Archiseek]
