This housing project is located within a former industrial area in the city of Eindhoven that was redeveloped into a residential neighborhood named Stripe S and composed of two building blocks. The E’ Tower forms the entry to this new development, with 110 apartments dispersed across its 22 floors, while a separate auxiliary building echoing the former’s façade rises 10 stories and consists of 36 apartments. This auxiliary building is situated along a road bisecting the neighborhood. The tower’s eastern façade has been receded from the adjacent building block to enable its complete fenestration in spite of its corner location, while at ground level the southern façade has been extended to create an operable glass gate. Flanked by the tower and a five-story building that mirrors its brise-soleiled façade, this glass gate provides access to the neighborhood’s non-public courtyard while softening its procession of entry.Save this picture!© Jan BitterBoth of these new buildings have been organized around highly efficient cores, maximizing their inhabitable floor space. As such, the tower’s lobby has been elevated .7 meter above street level, distancing itself from its immediate surroundings to denote its rather private character. Its windows have been fritted with pixilated dots, which vary in both diameter and placement, focusing at a distance to compose an image of curtains fluttering in the wind. These floor-to-ceiling glass façades provide the lobby and apartments with extraordinary light, views, and space. Offering to its residents amenities more-often found in short-stay hotels, the tower also features a furnished reading nook, a custom-designed concierge corner, and private hospitality-boxes, positioning the building to cater to Eindhoven’s urban professionals and rather established couples.Save this picture!© Jan BitterThe E’ Tower borders a residential district dating from 1910 originally built to house employees of the area’s now partially demolished Philips factories. These historic homes were built in the Brick Expressionist style of construction that flourished in the early twentieth century throughout Northern Europe. By reinterpreting these industrial brick façades, and thus the city’s industrial past, the project creates a new residential typology that imparts the vernacular brick mode of construction onto twenty-first century materials, namely glass and aluminum. This innovation is evident in the project’s expressive layering of brise-soleil, which impart a play of shadow and light onto the façades and into each apartment. The project is therefore a shard of transparency set amongst a dense sea of century-old brick.Save this picture!© Jan BitterEvery apartment in both the E’ Tower and its auxiliary building feature a balcony of 2×5 meters able to accommodate a dinner party of six, while internal conservatories also serve as an extra room–or winter garden–during the year’s cooler months. The project’s structure is composed of poured in place concrete on the ground and first floors, physically anchoring it to its site, with prefabricated components used throughout its remaining floors, including the custom-composed and clover leafed columns. These rounded columns impart a fluidity within the interiors, eliminating any harsh edge of exposed raw concrete, contributing to a greater sense of ‘movement’ within both buildings, expanding their capacity for interiority.Save this picture!1st Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBaohua Chinese Painting Research Institute / Wang Deng YueSelected ProjectsThe Gherkin: How London’s Famous Tower Leveraged Risk and Became an IconArticlesProject locationAddress:Eindhoven, North Brabant, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Participants in a Swimmable Limerick outing on the River Shannon.OPEN water swimmers, who want to swim in the Shannon in the city centre could soon have their wish, as the local authority is to consider designating part of the river as a bathing area.Members of the council’s Community Leisure and Emergency Services committee this week heard a presentation from one of the organisers of Swimmable Limerick, a group which arranges regular swims in the Shannon and whose membership is growing steadily.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Elisa O’Donovan said that regular swims were organised over the summer and during Riverfest and places were snapped up in under two days.“We have a Samhain swim planned, with candles and glow sticks to light the river and all places were booked out on the day we announced it,” she said.“Open water swimming in the urban environment is a unique experience and this healthy and sociable activity brings health benefits. I have been flu and cold free since I started swimming in the river and it is extremely beneficial for mental health.“In terms of facilities, open water swimmers don’t need a lot. We need to know the water quality is okay to swim in and to be able to get in and out easily. To have changing facilities would be just amazing. This is something unique to Limerick. Where else can you swim beside a medieval castle?” she asked.The presentation coincided with a report on providing public swimming facilities for Limerick city and county.Director Of Services Gordon Daly outlined how a feasibility study last year on a proposal to provide a new swimming pool in Newcastle West had determined that any such facility should only be provided in the context of an overall strategy for public swimming facilities.Designating a bathing area could also be part of such a strategy he said.“Initial costs would not be prohibitive and would centre on water testing with a plan to perhaps station a lifeguard at the bathing spot in summer. Such measures need not wait for an overall strategy”, he said.Newcastle West councillor, Michael Collins (FF) said that as the county town it should have a swimming pool and he welcomed the call for a designated bathing area.“People like to see the river used as an amenity. It gets publicity for all the wrong reasons,” he said.Independent councillor, Lisa Marie Sheehy said that she had recently experienced seeing Limerick from the water for the first time when she took a kayak out.‘It was a very emotional experience seeing the city from the river, which has been associated with such pain and loss. We need to support this,” she added.Cllr Cian Prendiville (Sol) said that the council officials should come back with a concrete proposal.“We could take the initial steps of water testing and providing a lifeguard. The provision of changing facilities and an actual bath further down the road would be amazing,” he said.

New NHS payroll system frees up staff for patientsOn 11 Dec 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article The creation of a £325m integrated HR and payroll system for the NHS willprovide a significant boost for staff development. This is the view of Andrew Foster, HR director for the NHS, who last weekannounced the award of the multi-million pound contract to a consortium led byMcKesson. The 10-year deal will see the consortium, which also includes Oracle, PwCConsulting and IBM, replace the 29 different payroll and 38 various HR systemsin the health service with one fully integrated payroll and HR system for amillion NHS staff. Foster said the move will provide the NHS with common HR and pay processesto manage staff, recruitment and absenteeism effectively. The new system will help the health service analyse skills gaps, recruitstaff proactively and identify areas where flexible working can be introduced. Foster said, “This is a fundamental building block for developing ourmost important asset – our staff – which in turn will realise more improved andeffective patient care. “It will reduce the need for the double handling of information,allowing skilled staff to devote more time to managing services.” The deal includes the option of Internet-type technologies fore-recruitment, e-learning and employee self-rostering. The Department of Health believes the system should save the NHS at least£400m over 10 years in England and Wales. It will pay for itself through better staff management and effective pay andHR polices designed to reduce administration, develop skills and help retainstaff – so cutting recruitment costs. The system will initially be tested at University Hospital Birmingham NHSTrust, then piloted at 16 other NHS trusts across England and Wales for afurther six months. It will then be rolled out in full across the healthservice. By Ben Willmott Related posts:No related photos.
As per the development concept, the Vali gas field will comprise nine fracture stimulated vertical wells The Vali-1 ST1 well delivered a stabilised gas rate of 4.3 MMscfd during drilling. (Credit: Vintage Energy Ltd) Vintage Energy and its partners have announced the completion of the development concept for the Vali gas field located onshore Cooper Basin in Australia.The Vintage Energy operates the ATP 2021 joint venture with 50% stake while other partners include Metgasco with 25% and Bridgeport (Cooper Basin) with 25% interest.The firm has used data generated from the successful flow test of Vali-1 ST1, for the development concept.Due for completion in October 2020, the Vali-1 ST1 delivered a stabilised gas rate of 4.3 Million standard cubic feet per day (MMscfd) through a 36/64″choke at 942 psi over a two-day period.According to estimates, the field has an operational life of around 20 years.As per the development concept, the field will comprise nine fracture stimulated vertical wells, which would target production from reservoirs in the Patchawarra Formation and the Tirrawarra Sandstone.Drilling on first two wells to commence first half of 2021Subject to regulatory and joint venture approvals and the availability of the rig, drilling work on the first two wells in the programme is scheduled to commence first half of 2021.Vintage Energy plans to connect all the wells to a central manifold and the produced gas will be transported via multiple composite pipelines to the Santos-operated Beckler Field and then into the Moomba gathering system.Vintage managing director Neil Gibbins said: “The Vali Field development concept work has highlighted the potential of the Vali Field to produce gas over the longer term.“With a field life estimated at around 20 years and multiple leads and prospects within proximity of Vali, we are confident in delivering a multi-field production project over time.“We will be initially targeting approximately 4 PJ per annum of gross gas production, and I am of the belief this could be increased substantially with appraisal and exploration success in the area.”Subject to joint venture approval, the detailed initial development plan for the Vali Field is planned to be submitted to the regulator over the coming months.
