John Pardey Architects has been asked to design this 16-storey tower as part of the HKR Architects-led Digital Hub development in Dublin.

The 65m-tall office building will become the focal point of the multimillion revamp of the 1.3ha plot in the run-down Thomas Street area of the city.

According to Pardey, the glazed element of the new tower takes its inspiration from the Apple Mac G5 computer. Meanwhile the blue-grey Carlow limestone wall, which will wrap around this 'glass box', will echo the brick mass of the nearby Guinness brewery's smock tower - an abandoned windmill at the heart of the scheme.

Expected to be given the go-ahead in September, the development will create 269 new apartments and 13,000m 2 of retail and leisure space, as well as digital media incubation units.
