This morning site visit to 1 Capel Street provides a rare opportunity to inspect the interiors of one of Dublin’s most prominent street buildings overlooking Grattan Bridge in the heart of Dublin. Constructed c.1780 and extensively modified in the 1830s, 1 Capel Street was famously captured in an engraving of Essex Bridge (now Grattan Bridge) by James Malton in the 1790s.

The guided site visit, led by its project architect James Kelly of Kelly & Cogan Architects in advance of major conservation works, will provide an opportunity to learn how to read an historic building, its layers of interventions over time, and dealing with challenging conservation and repair issues.

The session will begin with a lecture presentation hosted in 18 Ormond Quay Upper (located a few doors away, where registration at 09.45 also takes place), followed by a guided site tour of 1 Capel Street.
