This building refurbishment was part of an overall master plan for the planning and reorganization of a large urban area in Dublin.
Named after the Fatima Mansions buildings built in the 1950s, the project was developed between 2004 and 2010. Rodeca's panel PC 2540-4 in bicolor (combination crystal and opal) was selected for the façade's rainscreen cladding and features integrated glass windows. The material gives the building a clean, finished look and integrates harmoniously with its surrounding environment.
