Dublin City Council’s 14 Henrietta Street, shortlisted for Architectural Award

We are delighted to announce that 14 Henrietta Street has been shortlisted by The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) in their 2018 Awards.

Working on behalf of Dublin City Council and the Heritage Section, Shaffrey Architects led a multi-discplinary design team to carefully conserve and adapt 14 Henrietta Street for public use as a museum.  The works were informed by new academic research and ongoing engagement and oral history interviews with the community of former residents of No.14 and Henrietta Street itself.  The museum will bring to life the stories and history of the house and street including its beginnings in the mid 18th century and its one hundred years of Tenement life.  Three floors of the house will offer visitors the opportunity to journey through time, exploring immersive rooms, exhibition films and soundscapes. 

While 14 Henrietta Street will officially open in September 2018, advance tours are available on Fridays and Saturdays from 6th July until 8th September with an opportunity for the visitors to feedback their memories, stories and reflections. Tickets (€9 adult / €6 concession) for the 90-minute tour should be booked in advance via www.14henriettastreet.ie

The 14 Henrietta Street museum project is eligible under the public choice award which works by audiences nominating their favourite shortlisted building.  This is the only Dublin City Council project nominated so we would love your support.
