The Bank buildings is a grade B1-listed five-storey building located at the intersection of Castle street and Royal Avenue in Belfast. It was designed and built by W.H. Lynn as a department store and warehouse. It stands on the site of a bank erected in 1785, from which it takes its name. It burned down in August 2018 and is currently being reconstructed at a renovation cost of £30million.
Born and raised in Belfast, Katie studied a BA in Fashion and Textiles at Ulster University where she developed her interest in illustration and print design, and launched her business Katie Ireland designs.
Katie Ireland’s creations are inspired by urban environments, buildings, vistas and textures from the founders place of origin. Beginning with a deep appreciation of the city of Belfast, the aesthetic of the Katie Ireland brand reflects back at us where we live and how we live. Both a celebration and acknowledgement of interurban and interaction.
