Temple Bar isn’t kind to glass shopfronts. Though Regent Barbers (a father-and-son business) have been in Temple Bar since the 1960s, the building was renovated and extended by Simon Walker Architects, completed in 2000, and I think the current 1940s-style shopfront dates from then. It’s a pale green-yellow glass, with steel lettering to match the window frame below, and it’s beautiful even in its poor state of repairs.
