Commissioned by Sir Basil Goulding, businessman and art collector, to a design by English architects, Shoolheifer & Burley. Fitzwilton House was built as offices for Goulding’s businesses and included specially commissioned artworks by Irish and British artists, Robert Ballagh, Barrie Cooke, Anne Madden and Michael Farrell – some of which have since been transferred to the Trinity College Dublin Art Collection. It is a bold expression of modernist architecture with a complex layered façade incorporating at least five different concrete finishes forming a dramatic backdrop to Dublin’s Grand Canal. Special thanks to Ciarán Ferrie
