Glass partitioning was a key element of the design for the social media giant.  200 local staff moved into four floors at Cumberland Place, a building dating back to the 1970s, after the offices got a €29 million makeover.

Glass Partitioning Gives Natural Light To This Cool Space

The building was awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certification in recognition of its ‘green’ features, like motion-sensitive lights and green roofs that help recycle rainwater.  Our glass partitioning ensured

There are fancy coffee machines, people working on comfortable couches and, of course, there’s a table-tennis table all expertly framed by our glass partitioning to let the light flood through the space.

Twitter went for something more old-school with its Irish base even featuring an Irish Pub as part of the design.

The refurbishment of the building, which was funded by owners Hibernia REIT, has made Cumberland Place one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in the world.

Twitter Dublin was the first of the company’s offices worldwide to achieve the standard – although a handful of other Irish buildings have already made the grade.

It might keep the electricity bills down, but the design has also made the office a better place to work because the glass partitioning lets you see natural light from virtually anywhere in the space.
