The Irish Times has published images of the projected interior and exterior of the development and its architectural context. 

The three year build programme involves the restoration of a Georgian terrace, with the new 21st century library behind it.

The library's modern facilities will include a music centre, design space, innovation hub and business library, 200-seat conference space, education centre, café and exhibition areas.

The sweeping contemporary design has a mezzanine level with views up and down, and lots of light from both east and west. It includes both intimate spaces and grand scale, a glass lift moving through the building, a roof terrace with views over the city, and roof gardens.

The 100,000 euro budget will be 55% funded from philanthropic funding, the rest from Dublin City Council.
