The Ramp house / Archivirus

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/20394/the-ramp-house-archivirus Clipboard Year:  Text description provided by the architects. Athanasia Psaraki shared with us this house for a skater in Athens. Take a look at this impressive interior work.Save this picture!The ramp house is a project which tries to reconsider and redefine the living space. The client requested a “skatable habitat”. The result was a curved form interior, which set the whole house as well as the inhabitant’s life, into motion. In that space, which actually was a roof addition to an existing three- stored building, I tried first of all to achieve a balanced co-existence between the old and the new. The dominant material was the wood and so I used a wooden pergola and wooden horizontal louvers, which wrap up the whole new structure, ergo connecting the old with the new in a harmonious way. As a result the new volume obtained independence while still remaining an inseparable part of the whole. Save this picture!The ‘skateboarding’ element is adopted in every possible way. When the client asked me to design a home where she could be able to skate, I immediately eliminated the idea of just putting a mini ramp in the living room. For me, the challenge of this project was to make a living space where the ramp, the bowl and all the interpretations of those terms would actually become the building elements for this space. I wanted to make a ‘ramp house’ and not a ‘house with a ramp’. So I started imagining a space where the straight line would become curved and the flat surface would become a ramp or a bowl. Playing with these forms and with the variable transitions which offer, my main goal was to create a functional open space where aspects of daily life would adopt ‘ the feeling of acceleration’ which is basically one of the main characteristics of skateboarding. Save this picture!Having these in mind, I designed a home where the living room becomes a mini ramp and turns into a bowl to create a partition with the bedroom and the bathroom. Basic house elements such as the fireplace and storage units are hidden inside the ramp forms. I also tried to combine the street aesthetics of the skate scene using concrete and the cozy atmosphere of a house using wood. So concrete walls mold into the floor and then concrete turns into wood to create a ramp partition with the kitchen. In that way, the whole space is in actual motion and somebody can flow from one space to the other, skating or walking.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessIn progress: Porta Fira towers in Plaza Europa by Toyo ItoArticlesArchitecture as Investment, a public debate with Alejandro AravenaArticles Share ArchDaily The Ramp house / Archivirus The Ramp house / ArchivirusSave this projectSaveThe Ramp house / Archivirus CopyAbout this officeArchivirusOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAthensWoodHousesGreecePublished on April 26, 2009Cite: “The Ramp house / Archivirus” 26 Apr 2009.

The site is situated within an atypical urban/ rural condition. To the western front boundary addresses a 60km/h road connecting neighbouring headland communities with the city centre. To the east; a state conservation area bordering a secluded beach. Addressing these opposing conditions was a key consideration in the development of a central covered outdoor living room; the Garden Room. Providing relief from the vehicular traffic and oriented to capture distant filtered ocean views and the native bushland setting.Save this picture!© Jon ReidRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumWoodEGGERLaminatesThe terrain of the site informed both the building setout and planning opportunities. Set on an existing ridge form, the building follows the existing ground stepping down to create direct internal relationships with the outdoors whilst providing internal separation through subtle changes in level.Save this picture!© Jon ReidGiven the site’s bushland setting, the design had to address bushfire requirements. An informed response minimised the impact of BAL 40 requirements to back of house areas and allowed living spaces to be uncompromising by standard controls.Save this picture!Ground floor planKey design briefing requirements included: kitchen as the heart of the home, covered outdoor area engaging the landscape, children and adult bedroom separation and a valued entry experience.Save this picture!© Jon ReidThroughout the design process, the importance and impact the landscape; whether native or constructed, has been an emphasis of the design. Each room is oriented and framed towards a garden to enhance the experience and relationship between indoor and outdoor.Save this picture!© Jon ReidOur belief in an economic hierarchy allows for the right balance between cost and value to be achieved. We believe the primary investment should be made to spaces and items which impact the users on a daily basis. At Brass House, the design revolves around the Garden Room, the value of custom detailed, timber windows and doors, brickwork and in-situ concrete elements soften through native landscaping. For the interiors, built-in joinery is carefully crafted and enhanced through a white neutral pallet to strength the landscape experience.Save this picture!© Jon ReidWithout exhausting the budget external enclosure details; claddings, flashing and rainwater goods etc. which impact users on a peripheral level have been simplified. Utilising standard products, materials are simply crafted and finished dark monochromic to sit within the native bush context.Save this picture!© Jon ReidDesign is a process. Each project is a result of an understanding of the site; conditions and constrains, of working with people, engaging the client, with consultants, contractors and craftsmen, of collaboration to achieve outcomes not originally foreseen. Brass House follows this philosophy. The design outcome is a result of an informed response to these numerous threads.Save this picture!© Jon ReidProject gallerySee allShow lessTianyi Pavilion / UMSelected ProjectsYu Fu Nan / Indoor DesignSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904465/brass-house-anthrosite Clipboard “COPY” Brass House / anthrositeSave this projectSaveBrass House / anthrositeSave this picture!© Jon Reid+ 19Curated by María Francisca González Share 2017 CopyAbout this officeanthrositeOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNewcastleAustraliaPublished on October 25, 2018Cite: “Brass House / anthrosite” 24 Oct 2018.

Exeter housing: Jury’s Inn, students out

first_imgHalf of the Exeter students who are currently living in Jury’s Inn are being forced to move in and out of the hotel up to three times before the end of term, owing to unavailability of rooms.40 students will have to stay in alternative accommodation on six occasions before the end of Michaelmas term due to prior bookings at Jury’s Inn Hotel in Wolvercote.The provisional check out date of October 31 for the 86 students, including finalists, had been further delayed until 3rd December, as their planned college accommodation in Cohen Quad remains incomplete.Exeter College has arranged bed and breakfast accommodation for students on November 10, 12, 19, 20, 25 and 26 November.Alternative accommodation is being provided at Cotswold Lodge Hotel and Linton Lodge Hotel in Summertown, as well as the Travelodge Abingdon Road and Holiday Inn in Wolvercote. The college has found 25 rooms owned by Lincoln, Keble and Worcester.The Keble Accommodation is located near Headington, whilst the Worcester and Lincoln accommodation is near Cohen Quad. There are also 15 rooms in college from which no one has to move. The College is compiling a priority list to put into a ballot for the no move hotel rooms and the 25 alternative college rooms.Priority will be given to students with health issues, then those with English coursework this term, followed by Earth Sciences and History coursework over the holidays, international students and finally all other students.Students will be moved in groups according to the areas of Jury’s Inn they are currently staying in, in an effort to minimise disruption.Exeter College has said each student will be contacted individually with the dates they would have to move out, stating it would be unlikely that anyone would have to move more than three times. A spokesperson for Exeter College told Cherwell, “Having informed our students that they would be unable to move into Cohen Quad during this term, we have been working with Jury’s Inn to secure the students’ accommodation there until the beginning of December. The hotel team have been as helpful as possible but are unable to accommodate all students continuously over the next four weeks due to other group bookings which they had previously agreed.“Consequently, we have had to make some alternative accommodation arrangements including moving some of our students into other colleges for the duration of term, and moving a small number of students, still at Jury’s Inn, into alternative hotels for two weekends this month. Student welfare remains our highest priority in providing alternative suitable accommodation and all assistance will be given to provide physical and emotional and academic support over the remaining weeks of term.”JCR President Harry Williams commented, “I am disappointed that, yet again, our accommodation is not ready, which ultimately creates further disruption for students throughout the rest of term. The college are working hard however to find solutions to minimise the disruption and particular thought is going to those with imminent coursework deadlines.”Finalist Alex Doody, also living at Jury’s Inn, said, “I, like many fellow Exonians in this situation, cannot say I am pleased with this development. I understand that the hotel has to cater to other guests, but I think we have endured more than enough disruption and I will be overjoyed when Cohen Quad finally opens and we don’t have to put up with this inconvenience.”Exeter College is providing transport to the hotels and has organised storage space at Jury’s Inn for students’ personal belongings.Exeter College is covering all accommodation costs until students take up occupancy at Cohen Quad and students have received free breakfasts, as well as bus passes to travel into central Oxford.last_img read more

Costa, Starbucks and Caffè Nero respond to faecal bacteria investigation

first_imgCosta, Starbucks and Caffè Nerohave pledged to take action following a BBC Watchdog investigation found that their ice contained bacteria from faeces.An undercover investigation from the BBC revealed that iced water obtained from the coffee chain trio contained faecal coliform bacteria.BBC Watchdog found seven out of 10 samples of Costa ice were found to be contaminated with bacteria found in faeces, while both Starbucks and Caffè Nerohad three out of 10 samples test positive for faecal coliform.Costa told British Baker that they have taken immediate action to update its ice handling procedures.“We were disappointed with the findings, especially as these stores are all rated Very Good with the top Hygiene Rating of Five,” said Costa in a statement. “It is extremely important to us that all our stores operate to high standards of hygiene at all times and we take it very seriously when any store fails to meet these standards.”“We adopt industry standard cleaning processes across all our stores, in line with the Food Standard Agency’s advice.”Meanwhile Starbucks said that it wanted to reassure customers that it takes hygiene and cleanliness extremely seriously and will give updated training of ice handling to members of staff.Caffè Nerotold British Baker that a thorough investigation was now underway and the appropriate action would be taken.Hoshizaki, who are the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial ice making equipment, told British Baker that poorly made, inappropriately stored or incorrectly handled ice could become a source of food poisoning.“The most common form of ice contamination occurs after the ice has been manufactured,” said Lena Palmer, marketing for Hoshizaki. “Dirty, unsanitised ice scoops or rarely cleaned ice buckets leave much to be desired. Few of us would opt to eat food that has been through a poor handling process, and the same is relevant for ice.”“The only potential sources of danger at the ice manufacturing stage are water and air. It is therefore imperative to protect against the harmful effects of both. The placement of an ice maker is vital – too often they are slotted into any available space, such as damp cellars or unventilated areas, where air quality is at its poorest and aero bacteria are most profound.”The ice equipment manufacturer revealed that the most important factor to prevent bacteria growth for baristas is regular machine maintenance and personal hygiene.last_img read more
