Black Church Print Studio, Temple Bar

Black Church Print Studios is essentially a specialised workshop - a small urban factory, like the clothing workshops which formerly existed on the site. It provides three floors of printing facilities with a double-height gallery at ground level. The building maximises the site footprint. The narrowness of the site allowed each room to have generous windows front and back - space suspended between street and courtyard. The facade to Temple Bar, gridded like a compositor's frame of typefaces, has a blank panel of white limestone to one side, with indented markings reminiscent of the stones used in the lithographic process.
