Twitter

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. We worked closely with our partner in Dublin Walls to Workstations on this prestigious project.

Glass partitioning gives natural light to this cool space

The building achieved a superb LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certification in recognition of its environmentally sustainable feature, such as motion-sensitive lights and green roofs that help recycle rainwater. Our glass partitioning ensured a light and airy space within the design.  Architects MCA used our Revolution 100 double glazed partitions and timber doors to divide the meeting rooms and provide high acoustic privacy.

Stylised with modern and quirky touches to allow for a wholesome and welcoming atmosphere. These additions extend to high-tech coffee machines, comfortable and social seating fixtures and, of course, table-tennis. The space is completed by our glass partitioning to let the light flood the space.

One the exterior of the building, Twitter have built a contextually-appropriate, fully functioning Irish pub. This heightens the degree of wholesomeness within the business. Providing employees an out of hours social space, as well as a kitchen providing hot food optimised for lunches.

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 Platinum LEED standard. A huge feat, shattering the previous world record. Twitter is a project that everyone involved felt the utmost pride in completing. Earning well deserved accolades encourages us to keep on developing our environmentally friendly and sustainable (FSC Certified) materials for our glass partitions.
