Alpine Ski Apartments / OFIS arhitekti

first_img Text description provided by the architects. The project is located in the Slovenian alpine town Kranjska Gora on the north western corner of the country. The brief required a public ground floor and small apartments on the upper floor that could be converted into bigger units. Save this picture!Site PlanConcept design-initial urban cube-cutout the cube in vertical and horizontal planes The concept design was initially dictated by strict local building regulations, height and footprint plot limit which partially led to the building form. The first step was pasting maximum volume on the site -a cube on the allowed urban footprint. The final form derived from cutting the cube in the vertical and horizontal planes. Save this picture!Courtesy of OFIS ArhitektiHorizontal cut – pitched roof with flat top to hide service ventilation pipes and chimneys. Vertical cut – angled corners with inserted wooden balconies allowing the building a softer, less substantial volume appearance. Save this picture!PlansProgram organization The pharmacy is located on the ground floor with larger glazed elements and a recessed entrance creating a more open and inviting level for the public space. First and second floors contain 6 studio apartments of different sizes, each with own balcony and large glazed opening affording views towards the surrounding mountains. The basement level is a communal space with a shared area, sauna and leisure room. Save this picture!Courtesy of OFIS ArhitektiThe materials used have also been chosen as a response to the local historical tradition, using materials to emulate those of the existing building environment. Cement tile cladding as the principal material which visually gives the impression of a tiled roof, however provides continuous skin which is used on both the roof and walls to emphasize the form of building further. Larch is used for the balconies on the corners of the building in order to indicate the location the buildings form has been cut to reveal external spaces for the apartments. Natural stone from the region is used as a material for the ground floor to indicate the entrance and difference between private and public areas. Both these materials have been chosen due to their use historically in local traditional architecture.

Møller LandscapeCity:LondonCountry:United KingdomMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Mark HaddenText description provided by the architects. Elmwood court is a 5 storey, 22 unit affordable housing scheme for Peabody in Battersea, London. The building is situated on an open, underutilised car park within an existing Peabody Estate. The new residential block continues the land-use pattern of the remaining Victorian terraces along Battersea Park Road, with ground floor retail and housing above.Save this picture!© Mark HaddenThere are two well defined residential entrances to separate cores flanking the retail space which will enliven the urban realm and fill a void in the streetscape. The street façade comes forward to the line of adjacent buildings, maximising the courtyard space to the rear. Save this picture!© Mark HaddenExtensive façade studies concentrated on minimising maintenance whilst trying to maximize daylight penetration for all rooms and offering bedrooms additional privacy from the street. This was achieved by using full length inset balconies to provide a buffer space between the road and the bedroom windows. Full height windows are used throughout the scheme to maximise daylight.Save this picture!First Floor PlanHorizontal variation has been achieved on the façade by projecting living spaces on alternate floors. The scheme relates to its context through the subtle expression of a window rhythm found in the adjacent Victorian terrace. Upper-level setbacks and shifts in geometry lighten the massing of the block and reduce its scale.Save this picture!© Mark HaddenC.F. Møller Architects has designed the project with a limited palette of good quality, durable materials. Light coloured brick has been chosen as an extremely long lasting and durable material which ages gracefully. Brick is a material found abundantly within the local vernacular and we have varied the texture of the brickwork at ground level to accentuate the public areas of the building as distinct from the residences above.The residential mix provides a range of unit types from 1-bedroom apartments to 3-bedroom family sized units which are allocated on the first and second floors. The east core serves 12 affordable rented units; the west core serves 10 units which are designated as shared ownership apartments. There are typically three apartments per floor per core.Save this picture!© Mark HaddenThis design strategy has several inherent benefits: avoidance of long internal corridors, greater efficiency and maximizing the number of flats with double exposure. The majority of apartments benefit from dual aspect living spaces and two balconies, one facing southeast and another northwest overlooking the communal landscaped garden. Save this picture!Cross SectionThe building has been designed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. The units are 100% Lifetime Homes compliant and the project provides two wheelchair accessible 2-bedroom apartments on the first floor of the development.Save this picture!© Mark HaddenProject gallerySee allShow lessLandscape House / Mabire ReichSelected ProjectsRomsdal Folk Museum / Reiulf Ramstad ArkitekterSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Elmwood Court, 38 Battersea Park Rd, London SW11 4JE, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.

According to the HSE the third Consultant is currently on leave from July to December 2019 and the HSE is currently aiming to recruit a locum replacement for this period”.“As I understand it the recruitment process under the Management of the medical manpower office CHO1 is leading on this with the local Business Manager in Donegal Mental Health Service.

Remains of 20 victims recovered in California boat fire, 14 still missing, police say

first_imgvmargineanu/iStock(SANTA CRUZ ISLAND, Calif.) — The 36 people believe to have perished when a 75-foot charter diving boat burst into flames early Monday in Southern California were trapped in a sleeping deck when flames apparently blocked a stairway and an escape hatch, officials said on Tuesday.The remains of 20 victims were recovered after the diving boat named the Conception caught fire off Santa Cruz Island around 3:30 a.m., Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a news conference.Capt. Monica Rochester of the U.S. Coast Guard announced Tuesday that the search-and-rescue mission has been suspended and has now become a search-and-recovery effort.“It is never an easy decision to suspend search efforts. We know that this is a very difficult time for families and friends of the victims,” Rochester said. “We have suspended these search efforts due to no additional individuals having been witnessed entering the water.”She said the decision to end the search for possible survivors was made after a search aircraft made one last flyover of the area where the boat is located in 65 feet of water.There were 41 people on board the ship at the time of the incident, officials said.Brown said that on Monday, dive teams recovered the remains of 11 women and nine men. He said four to six other victims were spotted inside the doomed vessel, but divers could not reach them before darkness fell.He said the remains of a total of 16 victims have yet to be recovered, and some may be in a debris field the size of a half-mile on the ocean floor.Sheriff Brown said autopsies on the victims recovered have not started, and investigators are asking family members for DNA samples to identify the victims. He said the youngest victim is believed to be 17 and the oldest victims are in their 60s.He said the majority of the victims were from Santa Cruz in Northern California and the Bay Area.Brown said the investigation into what caused the disaster is being handled by the Coast Guard and the National Transportation Agency.He clarified reports the doors to the sleeping quarters were locked, saying there were no doors to the sleeping quarters, only curtains.Brown said a stairway leading from the sleeping quarters to the upper decks was blocked by flames, as was an escape hatch in the sleeping quarters.The sheriff said the captain and crew quarters were on the top deck of the 3-deck vessel, explaining why they were able to escape the boat alive.He said one crew member was in the lower deck sleeping quarters when the fire broke out and is believed to be among those who died.Rochester said the boat was required to have smoke detectors, fixed firefighting equipment in the engine room and fire extinguishers throughout the vessel, including ones at the front and rear of the boat.She said that during the most recent inspection of the boat, all the required firefighting apparatus was accounted for.Rochester said it remains under investigation whether the smoke detectors were working at the time of the fire and if the crew attempted to use the firefighting equipment before abandoning ship.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
