In restoring the Octagonal Room to its original purpose as a public art gallery, a climate control system with necessary insulation is being provided to ensure a stable environment for hosting sensitive art works can be maintained. The refurbishment will also see the provision of appropriate glazing for the roof lantern and windows, a new lighting system, a newly designed oak floor in place of 1950s parquet, and the cleaning of 18th century plasterwork. Together these works will revitalise the octagonal room and create a compelling space for exhibitions, musical and theatrical performances, and educational events. Last week the Irish Georgian Society announced details of its first major exhibition for the room which will be held in June and July 2018 - Exhibiting Art in Georgian Ireland - An Exhibition Celebrating The Restoration Of The City Assembly House.

IGS Submission: Aldborough House
Aldborough House has long stood as one of Dublin’s most ‘At Risk’ protected structures which over time has seen it significantly deteriorate due to neglect, the theft of roofing materials, and damage arising from vandalism and break-ins. Timely intervention by Dublin City Council saw emergency roof repairs in 2011 which provided some breathing space however a long term plan for the sustainable use of the house has always been required to secure its future.
A current planning application proposes to restore the house for office use and to facilitate this through the construction of office blocks to either side. In a submission to Dublin City Council, the Society has welcomed proposals for the refurbishment and restoration of the house and acknowledged that some measure of new development must take place to ensure its continued viability. However, we have voiced concerns about the scale of the proposed new building works and sought to reinforce our view on the architectural significance of the building.
The Irish Georgian Society, in association with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, has assembled a team of leading conservation experts to deliver a course on the understanding, care and repair of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s period and traditionally built houses. Talks will explain protected structure policy and legislation, the importance of preventative maintenance, the benefits of using lime, the correct care of historic ironwork, decorative plasterwork, bricks, roofs and windows, as well as addressing issues of how to sensitively extend your period house, tackle damp and implement energy efficient upgrades.
The course will also benefit building professionals and practitioners and is recognised as CPD by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute and the Construction Industry Federation and its Register of Heritage Contractors.
18th October to 8th November, 7.00pm to 9.30pm
