The Daintree Building, designed by Solearth Architects and completed in 2005, is one of Dublin's sustainable gems, tucked away on a tight urban site on Pleasant's Place off Camden Street. Upstairs there are apartments and offices, while a bookshop now occupies the Camden Street retail space once home to the Daintree paper workshop; you can walk through here to the Cake Café, or else access it from Pleasant's Place.
