Bewleys Cafe, Dublin. Venetian glass and terrazzo mosaic

By | Mosaic

Instruction by Paul Arnold Architects to visit Dublin and survey the Bewleys Cafe mosaic. An unusual early twentieth century mix of Venetian glass and terrazzo to the front facade of the building, which as a result of structural movement is in need of attention. Good colour-matching using the Orsoni standard colour smalti palette, for the numerous necessary in-situ repairs throughout the fine external mosaic decoration.

Work to be completed by October 2016.
