Townhouses in Dublin with a Striking Exterior
View Slideshow

Located adjacent to the Royal Canal, Balisbridge in Dublin, the Percy Lane Townhouses aims to raise the bar when it comes to modern Irish design and architecture. Within this zinc clad building there are three units, each 154 square meters (1657 square feet) that are spread out over three floors. Designed by ODOS Architects, the three-bedroom dwellings offer light-filled spaces with clean, modern finishes.

They gave the interior a minimalist feel with light finishes, like the Calacatta marble fireplace and herringbone pattern on the floor. The top floor living room leads out to the rooftop terrace.

Where the ceiling is cut away, light from the top floor shines down to brighten the kitchen.
