Neal Creek Residence / Paul McKean Architecture

first_imgSave this picture!+ 14 Share Text description provided by the architects. The Neal Creek residence treads lightly upon its surroundings, maximizing valley and water views with minimal impact to the natural environment. The owners – windsurfing and snowboarding enthusiasts – were interested in a modest weekend retreat that would be highly efficient and ecologically minded. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornTheir wooded two-acre parcel of land presented many unique challenges including wetlands, creek protection setbacks, and floodplain restrictions.Save this picture!The design solution for the two-bedroom house addresses these issues by elevating the habitable space one full floor above grade. Views to the creek are enhanced from this position and the living spaces float within the tree tops. Save this picture!Lifting the main space protects the house from potential flooding and brush fire damage while making way for a covered outdoor patio and much needed gear storage below. At the uppermost level, a future planted roof will replace the landscape lost to the building footprint and reduces heat gain to the interior spaces.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessArt Pavillion / Cre8 ArchitectureArticlesGlobal Holcim Awards 2009 Winning ProjectsArticles Share Houses United States Area:  93 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Neal Creek Residence / Paul McKean ArchitectureSave this projectSaveNeal Creek Residence / Paul McKean Architecture 2007 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/18474/neal-creek-residence-paul-mckean-architecture Clipboardcenter_img “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/18474/neal-creek-residence-paul-mckean-architecture Clipboard Neal Creek Residence / Paul McKean Architecture Projects Year:  Architects: Paul McKean Architecture Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Hood River, United States CopyAbout this officePaul McKean ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHood RiverWoodHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 12, 2009Cite: “Neal Creek Residence / Paul McKean Architecture” 12 May 2009.

New contract to cure hospital ills

first_imgTwitter by Bernie [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A NEW Emergency Department to cure the ills of the University Hospital in Dooradoyle came a step closer this week, with the awarding of a contract for the fit-out and completion of the facility.However it now seems likely that the original delivery date of 2016 will not be met.The existing emergency department has made headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent times, with regular overcrowding and patients facing marathon wait times on trolleys for admission.A public works contract has been awarded to John Sisk & Son Holdings for the fit-out and completion of the new emergency department and also for the delivery of a new 24-bed dialysis unit. The company has already begun setting up on site.The estimated combined cost of both projects comes to around €25 million and it’s expected they will take approximately 18 months to complete.The new emergency department will be located on the ground floor of both the critical care block and the adjacent extension and will be three times the size of the current emergency department.A new state-of-the-art new dialysis unit will be provided on the first floor of the extension block on the same floor level as the hospitals new intensive care unit. The unit is being supported by the Mid-Western Hospitals Development Trust with support from the JP McManus Pro-Am Committee.It is expected to be up and running within 12 months, with the emergency department taking longer due to the number of phases involved and the logistics of the works, including having to power down to install electrics while keeping vital supplies going to the critical care block and the existing operating theatre and paediatric blocks at the hospital.UL Hospitals Group chief executive Professor Colette Cowan said that the new emergency department was designed with the comfort of patients very much in mind.“It will mean a much improved patient experience in terms of access and their journey through the hospital. It will also mean more dignity and privacy for our patients, who will be treated in pod-like facilities where they will get specialist care”.While acknowledging that the original target opening date of the end of 2016 for the emergency department may not be met, Prof Cowan said it was important to plan such a complex project properly.“We had hoped to open by the end of 2016 but these things can sometimes take a bit longer than planned”.
