O’Mahony Pike and Grafton Architects are delighted that the jury of the 2023 AAI Awards have awarded the Downes Medal, its highest honour, to the ESB Headquarters at Project Fitzwilliam. Many congratulations to all involved.

“This is a headquarters for an important Irish institution and yet it is conceding the identity of the institution to the Georgian street and the Georgian pattern. It is an important lesson in how to negotiate the scale of the Georgian architecture and reinterpret it as a corporate building in a contemporary yet playful fashion.”
