Yeah, Right – Brazil that has a vast modern tradition in the use of raw concrete? During a determinate period, in the 90´s, the use of the material declined sharply, restricted to the few architects that used it experimentally e sporadically, without fixing a constructive know-how. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG Throughout the last decade, the recognition of the design and specification of exposed concrete has been revisited and developed. The modern brutalists adopted raw concrete under the pretext of formal truth. In reality, reinforced concrete imposed the construction of complex formworks, generally with new wood and of good quality, making it a costly material. The construction of a ripped texture needs precise carpentry of total craftsmanship, mounting the negative of the building in hand-made wood. Additionally, the concrete needs a special composition in order for it to be worked adequately before solidifying. When deformed, the concrete is practically in its final configuration, making it a risky process, with little room for error. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG Concrete is, on the other hand, a type of x-ray of the construction and of the passing of time, where the surface is impregnated not only with the smallest defects but also the knots of the wood. It is liquid stone, as has already been said. The experience of constructing in raw concrete during these last ten years has shown StudioMK27 the impracticality of making an absolutely perfect material. The House of Ipês incorporates this experience of design and construction in exposed concrete. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG In this house the material is used in a radical manner throughout the upper volume and, as such, the large concrete Box appears to be floating atop a glass volume. In the living room, which continues to the veranda and the garden, the doors open entirely, diluting the division between interior and exterior. The main entrance is done through pivoting panels that also open entirely to the front garden. In the internal space, a long irregularly-shaped sofa wriggles around the room, constructing a space with no hierarchy among the different orientations. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG On the top floor, a TV room distributes the circulation to the bedrooms, which are lit by a wood block on the concrete wall of the facade. The wooden brises offer the interior great thermal comfort and makes it possible to totally control the lighting. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG The structure of the house incorporates large spans which accentuate the Idea of a floating Box, besides propitiating a totally free and continuous space. The use of raw concrete refers to modern buildings, aesthetically and functionally, as in a dialogue with this modern architecture. The House of Ipês, with its grand spans and brute material, transpires a sobriety and the concrete impregnated by the passage of time, exposes the existence of the life of the building.Save this picture!Plan 01Project gallerySee allShow lessInside Johannesburg’s Infamous Ponte City TowerVideosMVRDV Exhibits Furniture Series “Vertical Village” at Milan Design WeekArchitecture News Share 2011 Brazil “COPY” Year:  Area:  1343 m² Area:  1343 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2011 Ipes House / Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan + Lair Reis ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG+ 38 Share CopyAbout this officeLair ReisOfficeFollowStudio MK27OfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSão PauloHousesBrazilPublished on April 10, 2014Cite: “Ipes House / Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan + Lair Reis” 10 Apr 2014.

HSA donates £150,000 to Help the Hospices to train hundreds of hospice staff

first_imgHSA donates £150,000 to Help the Hospices to train hundreds of hospice staff AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 9 October 2006 | News Tagged with: corporate Help the Hospices, the national charity for the hospice movement, has received £150,000 from HSA, a leading health plan provider and part of Simplyhealth Group. The money is being used for Professional Development Grants, which provide training for hundreds of hospice and palliative care staff such as doctors, nurses and social workers across the UK. This training will enhance staff’s skills and expertise in palliative care and ensure they are kept up-to-date with the latest developments in healthcare, thereby advancing the quality of care given to hospice patients and their families.Catherine Malia, Advanced Nurse Practitioner at St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds, was one of the first to receive a grant, which enabled her to undertake an advanced course in Pain and Symptom Management. She commented, “This course helped me to consolidate and improve the essential skills I need to care for terminally-ill patients. On my return to the Hospice I am sharing the knowledge I gained with other members of the nursing team. Optimising pain and symptom management helps patients to concentrate on making the most of the time they have left, however long that may be.”Help the Hospices supports hospices in their work on the frontline of caring for people affected by terminal illness through training, education, information, grant-aid, advice and national fundraising events and activities.Help the Hospices also gives voice to the interests, views and concerns of over 220 local charities which provide the majority of hospice care across the UK, by investigating issues, publishing reports and briefings and advocating the cause of independent voluntary hospice care in Westminster, Whitehall and the media.David Burland, Director of Income Generation at Help the Hospices, said, “We are absolutely delighted that HSA and Simplyhealth Group have chosen to support the hospice movement by giving £150,000 for the training of hospice staff across the country. On average adult hospices only receive 33% of their funding from the government; the rest has to be raised from the communities they serve, which is why the support of companies like HSA is so important to us. A huge thank you to all at HSA.”Chris Harrison HSA Managing Director said, “Hospice care is a cause close to our hearts and following consultation with both our staff and customers we decided to do something that will have a long-lasting impact on communities across the UK. These grants are essential to this ongoing work and will help ensure that patients and their families receive top quality care.”Notes for editors:For further information and images contact:Help the Hospices (UK): Jo Pratt tel: 0208 699 6566, e-mail : [email protected]: Abby Bowman, tel: 01264 342561 email: [email protected] Help the HospicesHelp the Hospices is the national charity for the hospice movement, supporting over 200 local hospices in their vital work on the front line of caring for people who face the end of life. Hospices provide a wide range of care for people living with terminal illness and their families, from in-patient beds to day care and care for people in their own homes. The UK government contributes an average of 33% of running costs for adult hospices and less than 5% for children’s (England) – the rest has to be found by charitable fundraising (note: based on latest figures available) HSAHSA is one of the UK’s leading providers of healthcare solutions, and has been helping individuals, families and organisations access affordable healthcare since 1922, a history which pre-dates the NHS. HSA is a trading division of Simplyhealth Group and is a provider of Cash Plans, Private Medical Insurance and Dental Plans. HSA Cash Plans provide a funding solution to help meet the cost of everyday healthcare and HSA Personal Medical Plans provide private medical cover for treatment in the UK.Jo PrattHelp the Hospices Press [email protected]: 020 8699  31 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The [i]cell Interactive Kiosk is programmed with California-specific water conservation information and is available for use by all patrons.Over the last year, Altadena Library worked to install a drought-tolerant, water conservation demonstration garden on its grounds. Working with the Foothill Municipal Water District and using grants awarded by local organizations, the garden was ready and open to the public as of July. The Library is committed to becoming more energy efficient, including more water-wise. The installation of the Demonstration Garden helps the Library to lead by example and to engage the community through educational events about the importance of water conservation. Events have ranged from installing a drought-tolerant garden to tips on water saving at home.The [i]cell Interactive Kiosk gives the Library an opportunity to continue the work it has been doing with the water conservation garden. As California’s drought is estimated to continue for the foreseeable future, the [i]cell Save Water Interactive Kiosk is an on-going way in which Altadena Library can communicate with the community about water conservation. In addition, the Library will be expanding its collection to include updated materials about water conservation, drought-tolerant gardens, and other means to save water.“We want to make the Library the primary source for our community for learning how to save water in our semi-desert climate.”This new and exciting interactive feature in Altadena Library was made possible by a grant from the California State Library and the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).

Civic Trust fund to revitalise Georgian Limerick

The Limerick Renaissance Fund will breathe new life into historic buildings, thereby securing their future but also bringing life back into the city centre and improving the attractiveness of the area as a destination – a Magnet City.”The Limerick Renaissance Fund is aligned to and will support the Georgian Neighbourhood Limerick project which is being driven by the Urban Innovation Department of Limerick City and County Council.Limerick Civic Trust will work closely with the local authority, government bodies and private property owners to identify suitable buildings for development.“Through the Fund we will work with the owners of derelict and underused properties, some of whom may not have the resources to restore the buildings and find that developers are not offering them the necessary incentive. We can narrow the gap and offer a viable solution.  Some owners would get a greater portion of the market value when the building is repurposed or sold and are reassured by working with a local heritage-focused body,” Mr O’Brien explained.The Limerick Renaissance Fund will source derelict building projects from both national and regional public bodies and state agencies, private individuals, and in the case of abandonment, will claim title to properties under existing regulations.Stating that the Georgian Neighbourhood is not just a place but a new way of living Council Architect Rosie Webb explained that people are waking up to the value inherent in these buildings, both in terms of heritage and of the possibilities they hold for the future.“We welcome the launch of the Limerick Renaissance Fund, it is a much-needed incentive and will enhance and support the measures we have already put in place to help people renovate or refurbish a Georgian building,” she added.
