Stackyard is a new-build two-storey rural house neighbouring a Grade II listed farmhouse on the edge of the village of Palgrave in Suffolk. Designed as a new home for a retiring couple it is a modern house with an exposed timber structure, maximum natural light, sustainable features. The house takes its name from the agricultural enclosure typical to the area, which is used to store sheafs of corn. Located on the edge of the farmland the house opens up views to the north west and creates a space from which to enjoy the surrounding landscape.

It’s form takes inspiration from classical rectories that typically stand at the edge of villages, with a square plan and strong roofline. Split levels negotiate the sloping site and the design departs from its classical predecessors in its use of an asymmetrical composition of windows, solar screens, and doorways, giving the elevations a less formal appearance. Save this picture!© David ButlerInside a generous entrance hall opens into a double height atrium leading into living quarters with high ceilings and deep timber beams demonstrating the primary timber frame structure. Responding to the client’s brief for a space to observe nature, the upper bedroom sits half a floor higher than the parapet, with a projecting roof sheltering the room from summer sun, creating a cap to the building while reinforcing its position as both retreat and hide. Save this picture!Basament & First Floor PlanThe property showcases hi-tech low energy design solutions in a contemporary vernacular scheme, allowing the owners to embrace a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle in a house which harmonises with its rural setting. Stackyard is designed to Passivhaus standards, incorporating high levels of insulation and an airtight envelope. Its compact form reduces energy loss and its orientation makes use of solar gain. Window sizes have been restricted with openings predominantly towards the south. Solar collectors on the roof provide hot water, and solar photovoltaic roofing is located on the garage roof, and rainwater collected for garden use.Save this picture!© David ButlerProject gallerySee allShow lessStavanger Concert Hall / Ratio Arkitekter ASSelected ProjectsShigeru Ban Named Pritzker Laureate for 2014Architecture News Share “COPY” JP Chick & Partners Ltd & Just Swiss Area:  243 m² Area:  243 m² Photographs CopyHouses•Palgrave, United Kingdom Timber Frame:Just SwissCity:PalgraveCountry:United KingdomMore SpecsLess Specscenter_img Contractor: ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/489323/stackyard-house-mole Clipboard Houses Quantity Surveyor: Structural Engineers: Architects: Mole Architects Area Area of this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/489323/stackyard-house-mole Clipboard Willow Builders Ltd CopyAbout this officeMole ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPalgraveHousesUnited KingdomPublished on March 25, 2014Cite: “Stackyard House / Mole Architects” 25 Mar 2014.

New tourist offer of Lonjsko polje: Solar-powered boat ride on the river Strug

first_imgIn addition to solar-powered boats, canoes await visitors at the Plesmo pier. Important information for travel agencies is that boats will be able to be used on weekends and holidays with prior reservation, and during the week by appointment. Also, from the Krapje Visitor Center to the pier in Plesmo, visitors will be driven by an oldtimer tractor with a trailer. “Discover the Undiscovered – is a slogan that encourages guests to come to the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, but also guides us in the development of visitor infrastructure and content. Namely, we who work in Lonjsko polje, as well as those who live here, know how important perspective is for experiencing the beauty of the local nature. That is why we want to provide visitors with a unique view of Lonjsko polje – both the one from the lookout point and the one from the river ”, He said Ivor Stanivuković, director of the Lonjsko polje Nature Park Public Institution. The second largest nature park in Croatia, Lonjsko polje Nature Park, guided by the slogan “Discover the Undiscovered ”, continues to develop its tourist offer. Lonjsko polje Nature Park is the second largest nature park in Croatia. In order for visitors to leave it with as many fond memories as possible, great attention is paid to the development of the visitor infrastructure and content. “Solar-powered boat rides in Struga allow tourists to sail silently into beautiful nature. They will pass by beaver habitats, see cattle grazing, experience the flight of birds for which Lonjsko polje is known among ornithologists around the world…” concluded Stanivuković. As of this weekend, two solar-powered boats will sail along the Strug River from the pier in the village of Plesmo. These are almost silent vessels that will enable tourists to discover the beauty of the hitherto self-contained tributary of the Sava River.  Photo: Tomislav Korlast_img read more

Top ten worst female health habits

first_img Share HealthLifestyle Top ten worst female health habits by: – August 7, 2012 Tweet Ten health mistakes most women makeFrom workouts to healthy diets, many of us make an effort to look after ourselves. However, we could be compromising our health on a daily basis without even knowing it.From carrying heavy handbags to wearing crippling heels, here are the top 10 female habits you should try to break.Wearing heelsMore and more of us are opting to wear heels on a daily basis, and this could be bad news for our health. High heels affect our posture, put pressure on joints, and can lead to a range of conditions including arthritis, hammer toes, back pain and tendon injuries –and that’s before you take into account any heel-related accidents! To minimize damage, limit your heels to 1.5 inches for daily wear, and wear insoles to help reduce the pressure on joints.Carrying a heavy handbagWith the rising number of gadgets and accessories the majority of women haul around, many of us are carrying around several pounds of weight on our shoulders every day. As a result, lots of us are also putting our long term health at risk. While you may not feel the effects right now, lugging around a heavy handbag can lead to serious back problems and neck pain as well as poor posture. Don’t wait until the damage is done – do your health a favour and try clearing out all non-essential items and switching to a smaller bag.Sleeping in makeupMost of us have succumbed to the temptation to sleep in our post-party makeup at some point. However, leaving makeup on overnight – along with the dirt and oil that naturally accumulates on skin throughout the day –is a quick route to clogged pores, congested skin and spots. Sleeping with mascara and eye makeup on can also affect your health by causing eye irritation, bloodshot eyes or even infection.Matching men drink for drinkFrom networking drinks to first dates and social events, there are many instances when women may feel compelled to keep up with the drinking habits of the opposite sex. However, women not only tend to weigh less than men but they have less body water to dilute the alcohol, which means they tend to get more drunk more quickly. To minimize the risks of alcohol on your health, try to keep within the recommended guidelines for alcohol consumption and alternate alcohol with soft drinks.Wearing the wrong bra sizeIt is thought that more than 70 per cent of women are wearing the wrong bra size. However, wearing a badly fitted bra can not only affect the look of your clothes, but research suggests it can cause a range of health problems including back, neck and breast pain, breathing difficulties, poor posture, skin irritation, circulation problems and even irritable bowel syndrome. Rather than guessing your size, make sure you get measured to ensure you are getting the support you need.Worrying and harboring regretsStress is damaging to both our physical and mental health, and women are twice as likely as men to suffer from stress-related disorders, as well as having higher rates of depression and anxiety. While it is thought there may be biological reasons for this, worrying about the future and dwelling on regrets can also add to our problems, with research suggesting that women are more than twice as likely as men to harbor regrets over lost loves and broken relationships.Obsessing over appearanceWhile both genders suffer from body insecurity, many women tend to overly obsess over their idea of the “perfect” body. Research findings published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology found that 16 per cent of the normal or underweight women studied believed themselves to be overweight, while a study commissioned by Dove found that 90 per of women wanted to change at least one aspect of their appearance. Body insecurity not only affects our mental health, but it can also lead to physical damage caused by extreme diets, yo-yo dieting, eating disorders and cosmetic surgery.Emotional eating While comfort eating affects both genders, research has suggested that men are more likely to reinforce positive emotions with food, while women comfort eat when they’re sad. Women are also more likely to satisfy their cravings with sweet, high calorie foods. Rather than letting your waistline suffer next time you’re feeling blue, try distracting yourself from cravings by doing something you enjoy, or boost your endorphins and health with an uplifting workout.Not getting enough sleepNot only can lack of sleep make us look and feel at our worst, but insufficient shut-eye can also lead to increased accidents, calorie consumption and heart disease risk. Unluckily for women, statistics suggest that sleep problems affect more women than men, while a study by the University of Michigan found that women are more than twice as likely to give up sleep to care for others. Unfortunately, sleep has been found to affect women’s blood pressure and mood more than men’s, making it imperative that you do your best to get a good night’s sleep.Putting themselves lastNot only are women more likely to compromise their sleeping habits to care for children and others, they are also prone to putting their own wants and needs at the bottom of a hectic to-do list of chores and obligations. To avoid running yourself into the ground, learn to sometimes say no to those requests and commitments that are less than essential, and make sure you set aside some “me” time each week to do something enjoyable just for you.Real Buzz Sharecenter_img Share 16 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Keane lifts Galaxy

first_imgRobbie Keane’s return to action after seven weeks out with a groin injury inspired the Los Angeles Galaxy to a 1-0 Major League Soccer victory over the Houston Dynamo on Friday night. Press Association There was also late drama in Friday’s other game, with substitute Jason Johnson nodding home an equaliser four minutes into stoppage time to secure the Chicago Fire a 2-2 draw at the Columbus Crew. Kei Kamara had put the hosts two up at MAPFRE Stadium, a clinical finish in the eighth minute and a powerful header in the 55th. But David Accam halved the deficit with a neat header before the hour mark and then Johnson had the final word. center_img The Republic of Ireland captain set up Alan Gordon for a second-half stoppage-time header that proved enough to help the Galaxy end their five-game winless streak. There was still time after Gordon’s strike for Los Angeles left-back Oscar Sorto, on his first MLS start, to be sent off for a tackle from behind on Dynamo defender David Horst. last_img read more
