Historic Building Site Visit: 3 Henrietta Street
This morning site visit is a follow-up visit to the Trust’s successful seminar on the conservation of this landmark Georgian mansion at 3 Henrietta Street held in late 2017.
Since that time, the most ambitious staircase reconstruction of its kind has taken place in the soaring double-height entrance hall which had been removed in the 20th century. The staircase project is one of the most remarkable historic reconstructions ever undertaken in Ireland, involving the structural carcassing of the ‘flying staircase’ based on exacting surviving dimensions, the carving of almost 100 balusters, heavy handrail and dado rail, and the application of salvaged, 18th-century tread-ends. Historic plasterwork has also been conserved and replicated, restoring the architectural coherence of the stair hall.
This morning visit will allow a unique opportunity to observe the interior of this private house as the staircase is being completed, led by its project conservation architect, James Kelly of Kelly & Cogan Architects and clients, Pat Wigglesworth and Ian Lumley.
