Arsenal B47 / Ralph Germann architectes

first_imgCopySave this picture!© Lionel HenriodText description provided by the architects. The owner of the arsenal wanted to convert this former Swiss army building, constructed during the Second World War, into a habitable space.Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodArchitect Ralph Germann’s transformation involved inserting a glass cube into the old structure, an option which meant he didn’t have to touch the patina of the walls, and was able to preserve the roof and some historic details such as the “charge maximum 1500 kg au m2”[maximum load 1500 kg/m2] sign on the wall.Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodWhilst wishing to preserve this testimony to the past, the architect retained only simple materials – noble and solid – including larch, slate, glass and metal. And by interpreting them using clean, pure lines, he has given the chalet a timeless feel. To avoid sliding into an atmosphere of austerity, Ralph Germann has added an unexpected touch of colour behind the cloakroom door: a bold shade of fuchsia.Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodThis design, functional above all else, places the emphasis on light and space. To achieve the second, the architect has designed another cube – but in wood this time. Set within the heart of the glass structure, it houses the WCs, cupboards, and even the bed, which folds up when not in use. This optimises space in this area, which measures only 49 m2.Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodA large picture window – that can be concealed or revealed thanks to double wooden doors – and a long, horizontal window ensure excellent lighting.Save this picture!ElevationProject gallerySee allShow lessFish market in Bergen / Eder Biesel ArkitekterSelected ProjectsThe House of Chutes-Lavie / Damien Fluchaire & Julien CogneSelected Projects Share “COPY” Switzerland photographs:  Lionel HenriodPhotographs:  Lionel Henriod+ 20 Share 2013 Projects Year:  2013 Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/421912/arsenal-b47-ralph-germann-architectes Clipboard “COPY” Houses Architects: Ralph Germann architectes Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Arsenal B47 / Ralph Germann architectes ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/421912/arsenal-b47-ralph-germann-architectes Clipboard Arsenal B47 / Ralph Germann architectesSave this projectSaveArsenal B47 / Ralph Germann architectesSave this picture!© Lionel HenriodHouses•Ollon, Switzerland CopyAbout this officeRalph Germann architectesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOllonHousesSwitzerlandPublished on August 30, 2013Cite: “Arsenal B47 / Ralph Germann architectes” 30 Aug 2013.

Approached to renovate a 200 year old Quebec stone house and to design a significant addition, we were challenged to define a clear conceptual approach which would reconcile a contemporary architectural language to the ancestral home. The original structure once belonged to the Hudson Bay Company and had the main entrance facing the river, where the old road was situated. Over time, a new road was built on the back side of the house, which now became the front. Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe program required sheltering four generations: the great grandfather, the grandparents and the children in the old house, and the parents in the addition. Save this picture!© Marc CramerThis led to the idea of drawing a parallel between the multi-generational component of the program and the fact that a contemporary project would be built alongside a historical house. In this manner, the design expresses the passage of time. The strategy defined itself as a contemporary project contrasting the existing stone house, yet having an obvious relationship to the ancestral home.  Save this picture!© Marc CramerThis idea extended to the way the spaces are defined, as two double height living rooms are at opposite ends, one in each volume, linked by a path highlighted by a bridge linking the old house to the new volume.  Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessOsypyte single family house / Javier Corvalán + Laboratorio de ArquitecturaSelected Projects2013 Restaurant & Bar Design Award WinnersArchitecture News Share Area:  9900 ft² Area:  9900 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project General Contractor: Abitec CopyAbout this officeHenri CleingeOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDorvalHousesCanadaPublished on September 16, 2013Cite: “Bord-du-Lac House / Henri Cleinge” 16 Sep 2013.

More Than Just Roses Blooming at New Little Green Fingers

first_img Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS This past weekend, the Little Green Fingers children’s garden collaborative celebrated the grand opening of its third garden in Los Angeles County at the Villa-Parke Community Center, the first of its kind in Pasadena designed especially for families with young children under the age of five.Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard and California State Assembly Member Chris Holden were part of the grand opening program. Other featured speakers included First 5 LA Commissioner Duane Dennis, Dan Knapp, Deputy Director of the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, and Alina Bokde, Executive Director of the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust. The event featured free food and arts and crafts activities for children and their families to celebrate the grand opening during Earth Day Weekend. One of the highlights of the program included testimonials from three community gardeners, including a young girl and her grandmother demonstrating the intergenerational benefits of community gardening.“We welcome the Villa-Parke Community Garden as a valuable asset to Pasadena. This first-of-its-kind-rooftop community garden and the related nutrition program for Pasadena families with young children will allow them to grow healthy fruits and vegetables and embark on a healthier lifestyle. We look forward to watching this model garden grow into a model for all of Pasadena,” Mayor Bill Bogaard said.“We are so pleased to be able to provide the funding to construct and operate the Little Green Fingers garden in Pasadena,” said Duane Dennis, First 5 LA Commissioner. “Partnering with the Villa-Parke Community Center and the co located Head Start program, along with the additional generous support from the Pasadena Community Gardens Conservancy will ensure the community gardeners will get the resources and support they need to make this garden thrive. With one in five children in Los Angeles County being either overweight or obese, it is critical to provide young children and their families with the ability to grow their own healthy foods to help combat this problem.”The innovative Little Green Fingers garden initiative is made possible thanks to a grant from First 5 LA. The initiative aims to help address the obesity epidemic among children in Los Angeles by providing fresh fruits and vegetables, along with gardening and nutrition education. The project is being spearheaded by the non-profit Los Angeles Conservation Corps, the LA Neighborhood Land Trust (LANLT) and an extraordinary team of garden, nutrition and health experts. The garden has 30 raised garden beds and planters, including beds and fruit trees located in the outdoor Head Start area, a play and gardening area for young children, and a shade structure, which all were selected by community members during an extensive public design process facilitated by Glen Dake and Miguel Luna from DakeLuna Consultants, the landscape architect and community engagement liaison for the project.LA Conservation Corps Director Bruce Saito noted that the Little Green Fingers initiative is a win-win for the community and for the Corps. “Our Corpsmembers are proud to have built this garden for the residents of Pasadena. Not only does constructing these gardens provide our corpsmembers with important job training skills, but they also get to see first-hand how their hard work and dedication can make a great impact in the lives of Pasadena’s youngest residents by helping them to eat healthier.”“The Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust is excited to work with the community gardeners to help them make this garden their own,” remarked Alina Bokde, Executive Director of the LANLT. “We help bring community members into the garden, develop their leadership skills, and give them the resources they need to make this a thriving community hub.”The grand opening event kicked off with a blessing of the garden by Danza Yankuititl, a troupe of local Aztec dancers, and a song by the Head Start Preschool Choir. Featured activities at the event included a “rainbow” salad demonstration by Whole Foods Pasadena, art activities and face painting for children, and community resource booths.In addition to the garden site improvements, the community gardeners will be receiving ongoing classes from a Master Gardener as well as free cooking and nutrition classes made possible with the additional support of the Pasadena Community Gardens Conservancy.The Villa-Parke garden is the third garden to be completed by Little Green Fingers. The Koreatown Mariposa-Nabi Garden and the West Athens Victory Garden were the first to be completed. Other gardens that will be opening in 2014 include: the El Cariso Mountain Garden in Sylmar, whose grand opening is May 17; a garden at the Cedar Ridge Apartments, a low-income housing development in Lancaster, which will begin construction in May; and a garden on the grounds of the Historic General Hospital in East Los Angeles, slated to begin construction this fall.About Little Green FingersFirst 5 LA awarded a five-year grant to the Los Angeles Conservation Corps to help address the obesity epidemic in Los Angeles by creating a children’s garden collaborative for young children and their families called Little Green Fingers. The initiative will construct eight community gardens in underserved communities throughout Los Angeles County. The gardens will provide a minimum of 6,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables each year and will feature on site amenities and programs targeting families with children ages 0-5. The Little Green Fingers team of experts includes: First 5 LA – providing funding for planning and construction; Los Angeles Conservation Corps ­ program oversight and garden construction; Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust – land acquisition, community organizing and leadership development; Nicole Gatto (epidemiologist and health science researcher at Loma Linda University’s School of Public Health overseeing project evaluation ); DakeLuna Consultants – landscape architecture and community organizing; UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program – gardening and nutrition education; and The Better World Group - strategic outreach and communications.About the LA Conservation CorpsThe Los Angeles Conservation Corps is a 501(c)3 private non-profit organization founded in 1986 by former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and Trade Ambassador Mickey Kantor. Its primary mission is to provide underprivileged young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community.

Caution will control power of the e-mail

first_imgCaution will control power of the e-mailOn 27 Mar 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article DavidTaylor offers guidance on putting in place a company e-mail policy that is fairto everybodyForgetthe dotcom hype, mobile technology and the Internet – the biggest growth areaof the new business age by far is e-mail, and this brings a huge opportunityfor HR leaders.E-mailsfeed our reactive, rather than responsive behaviour, often failing to make thepoints intended, and are too often used as an alternative to other means ofcontact. As one of the most public, powerful and prevalent forms ofcommunication, there is a need for caution, care and clarity and, once this isdone, it can be hugely positive.Youcan set a company trend in HR by doing the following:– Make e-mails friendly (write Dear name, and always end on a friendly note)– Use the term “we” rather than “you” and always put yourself in the place ofthe recipient – reading through what you have written before you send it– Ensure that the quality of e-mails we send is as good as those we receive.Itmay be time to put in place company guidance, covering the key issues:Information on other companiesTo avoid litigation do not use e-mail to discuss competitors, potentialacquisitions or mergers, or to give your opinion about another company. Theword confidential simply does not apply to electronic communication – somebodyelse in your organisation can always access it.Personale-mailsMany companies are concerned about the growing numbers of non-work relatedcorrespondence. The key words here are guidelines and trust. Put in place aclear policy that gives some freedom, but ensure staff know the boundaries ontime and content. Manage your staff by giving them ownership and responsibility.Aggressivee-mailsIt is one thing to misunderstand the sender’s intent, quite another todeliberately attack someone by e-mail. Business bullying is now recognised byindustrial tribunals as a form of illegal behaviour in itself.SexualharassmentThe cases of this, and stalking over e-mail, are growing. Company policymust be extended to include this area and should lead to dismissal. Encouragepeople to come forward with evidence and make it clear that all e-mails areheld on the mainframe or network after they have been written. This willdiscourage most people.Chaine-mailsThese are both unpleasant and destructive in terms of time, volume oftraffic on a network and personal well-being. Treat these seriously, root outtheir origins and invite recipients to send them to you.Electroniccommunications are no different from every other form and there should be noneed for complex guidelines, rules and restrictions. As long as everyone isclear on your company’s policy, none of these potential dangers will grow outof hand.

Rapid iceberg calving following removal of tightly packed pro-glacial mélange

first_imgIceberg calving is a major contributor to Greenland’s ice mass loss. Pro-glacial mélange (a mixture of sea ice, icebergs, and snow) may be tightly packed in the long, narrow fjords that front many marine-terminating glaciers and can reduce calving by buttressing. However, data limitations have hampered a quantitative understanding. We develop a new radar-based approach to estimate time-varying elevations near the mélange-glacier interface, generating a factor of three or more improvement in elevation precision. We apply the technique to Jakobshavn Isbræ, Greenland’s major outlet glacier. Over a one-month period in early summer 2016, the glacier experienced essentially no calving, and was buttressed by an unusually thick mélange wedge that increased in thickness towards the glacier front. The extent and thickness of the wedge gradually decreased, with large-scale calving starting once the mélange mass within 7 km of the glacier front had decreased by >40%.last_img read more
