The highest value of the plot is a wonderful view stretching out. The idea was for the house to become its framework that crops it. The most appropriate building turned out to be a fully open on mountain landscape one-storey building, which gives the same view to all of the interiors.Save this picture!SchemeBecause of the plot being located in an absolute wilderness a problem of security came out. The solution turned out to be “twisting” the building so as only its one corner touches the ground and the rest is hang over the edge of the hill. With this solution, part of the ground floor where the bedrooms were located was pulled up to the level of the first floor. Because of the fact that there are wide glass openings in the building, my wife asked me to effectivly close the entrance side of the house. A 10 meter wall and a drawbridge, which combines the function of stairs and a window shutter, appeared.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczLocation of the house on a steep slope, was followed by high risk of landslip, more and more frequent in polish mountains. As to limit the movement of the subsoil the house was treated as a bridge, under which rain water flows naturally.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczRealities of mountain landscape as well as the local law constrained a gable roof. House took the form of a typical barn standing on three thin wallsSave this picture!Courtesy of Robert KoniecznySave this picture!Courtesy of Robert KoniecznyTo give rigidity to the building the walls were tensed by the planes of the ”inverted” roof, slightly lifted over gound. Their incline increased the feeling of security. And so, we basically created a house with two roofs that protect it from water, it began to resamble an arc floating over the fields. After some time I realized, that in order not to disturb this impression, the best garden design would be lack of it, the best fence would be a temporary herding fence, the best approach – few rocks. In the same time the building was supposed to be cheap and easy to construct. That is why I deciced on insulating it from the inside, the concrete structure became an finnished elevation. This is how I got rid of complicated details and finish, they were replaced by poured concrete from a local producer. Sprayed closed-cell-structure foam turned out to be the optimal insulation. It is also a vapour barrier.Save this picture!© Olo StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessMonument to Privacy: Is This Manhattan Skyscraper a NSA Listening Post?Architecture NewsSpine Wall House / Drew ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/799909/koniecznys-ark-kwk-promes Clipboard Konieczny’s Ark / KWK PROMESSave this projectSaveKonieczny’s Ark / KWK PROMES 2015last_img read more

New Tesco deal for Henllan Bakery

first_imgNorth Wales-based Henllan Bakery has signed a new deal with Tesco to stock six breads and four morning goods.The deal, which director Tom Moore told British Baker he is “delighted” about, means that 22 Tesco stores in north and mid-Wales will stock 10 lines of its craft bread.The breads, which are in stores now, are four loaves (a white and a brown, both in small and large versions), a box bread in white and brown, two packs of four baps (one white, one brown), and two packs of six baps (one white, one brown).The loaves will all be thin-sliced versions, as Moore said this was a bestseller in the area: “I like a nice, thick slice of toast or bread for a sandwich myself, but around here they all prefer a thin slice.”He added that it was “a really exciting time” for the family bakery, and that the staff had been “fantastic”.“We’re delivering to Tesco with our 16 van fleet six days a week, and the staff have been brilliant – we are lucky to have a really loyal local workforce who have been so helpful and supportive with the winning of new contracts.”Moore also wanted to credit local Tesco buyers Chris Minter and Enfys Fox, whom he said had been “key to the new developments”.Denbigh-based Henllan has been making bread since 1908, but this is the first time it has sold them in Tesco supermarkets – they also supply Co-op and Asda.Moore said: “The decision was made two years ago to focus on bread this year, and trolley shoppers as opposed to basket or carrier bag shoppers. So far it has been received really well.”last_img read more
