Adaptable House / GXN + Henning Larsen

first_img Area:  146 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Adaptable House / GXN + Henning Larsen ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/546890/adaptable-house-henning-larsen-architects-gxn Clipboard Denmark Photographs Adaptable House / GXN + Henning LarsenSave this projectSaveAdaptable House / GXN + Henning Larsen Save this picture!© Jesper Ray+ 24 Share Engineer:Anders ChristensenContractor:Benée HuseKnowledge Partners:Danish Building Research Institute (Aalborg University), Kebony, Hth, YtongCity:NyborgCountry:DenmarkMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Jesper RayText description provided by the architects. The Adaptable House is part of a large development project: The MiniCO2 Houses. The project involves a total of six detached houses, each of which illustrates various aspects of reducing CO2 emissions in the construction, use and maintenance of a house.Save this picture!© Jesper RayThe Adaptable House focuses on flexibility and adaptability and examines how a flexible design can save materials and thereby CO2 as well as time and resources in connection with alterations and extensions to the building.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house is designed as a 146-m² single-family detached home and focuses on the changing needs and requirements of the Danish family as it moves through the various stages of home life. Couples move in together and have children. Children grow up and become teenagers. Children move away from home. The need arises for a home-based office. Couples divorce. A partner dies, the survivor lives alone – perhaps experiencing poor health, etc.The Adaptable House has been designed and laid out in advance to be able to handle these changing needs as they arise.Save this picture!© Jesper RayStudies also show that roughly two out of three Danish families who move house tend to stay within the same local community – suggesting that it is most often shortcomings in the house, not in the local community, that make families move. The Adaptable House can meet such wishes for change. It can be adapted to a range of new life patterns – everything from additions to the family to renewed aesthetic requirements – without requiring the purchase of loads of new materials.Save this picture!© Jesper RayChangeable parameters The principal aim in the design of the house has been to reduce carbon emissions by providing a flexible and functional layout. This means that: The components of the house can be dismantled, and the house can be expanded without destroying existing components. The replaced components can be reused in new contexts. The components are fabricated in standard sizes and from standard materials. Save this picture!© Helene Høyer MikkelsenWith its built‑in adaptability the house offers many new functional possibilities. For example:On the first floor, partition walls are designed as movable storage-cabinet walls. Only the outer walls are loadbearing. Internal walls can be moved around to create 1, 2, 3 or 4 rooms.Save this picture!Floor PlanAll cabling runs in an aluminium cable duct which replaces the traditional skirting board, enabling electrical sockets to be placed where convenient.The modular design ensures that new entrances in the façade can easily be established, e.g. for a teenager needing his or her own entrance.The kitchen can be either an enclosed space or open towards the dining and/or living room using sliding walls if desired.Save this picture!© Jesper RayReducing carbon emissions Carbon emissions after any changes in the building layout are significantly less in the Adaptable House than in the Reference House (1 kg CO2/m²/year compared with 2 kg CO2/m²/year over a 50-year period). However, these savings are of only moderate importance in the overall carbon profile – because the materials used in adapting the building often do not have a great carbon impact.Save this picture!© Jesper RayCO2 emissions from materials used in the construction of the Adaptable House are a little less than those for the Reference House (4.5 kg CO2/m²/year compared with 5 kg CO2/m²/year over a 50-year period). There is thus very little carbon “penalty” to pay for such a high degree of adaptability.Save this picture!© Jesper RayThe MiniCO2 Houses development project The Adaptable House is one of six demonstration homes built in the coastal town of Nyborg in central Denmark. Five of the houses examine various ways of reducing carbon emissions; the sixth house brings these experiences together.For many years, the efforts of the building industry to reduce CO2 emissions – not without reason – have focused on energy for heating and therefore also on airtightness and insulation. However, as national and EU building requirements become ever stricter in this area, it becomes relevant to examine how the industry can also reduce carbon emissions – for example, in terms of materials and of user behaviour.Save this picture!© Jesper RayThe main objective of the MiniCO2 Houses development project is thus to reduce CO2 emissions in the construction, operation and maintenance of a house.Project gallerySee allShow lessMorumbi Residence / Drucker Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsThe Maintenance-Free House / Arkitema ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Photographs:  Jesper Ray, Helene Høyer Mikkelsen Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily CopyHouses•Nyborg, Denmark ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/546890/adaptable-house-henning-larsen-architects-gxn Clipboard Houses Projects Year:  2013 Architects: GXN, Henning Larsen Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Manufacturers: Troldtekt Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyAbout this officeGXNOfficeFollowHenning LarsenOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNyborgDenmarkPublished on September 17, 2014Cite: “Adaptable House / GXN + Henning Larsen” 17 Sep 2014.

The project plan made up of 7 different layers—to be more accurate, the whole plan is composed of 11 levels— connect different lifestyles. These layers often overlap each other while creating a bridge between the gaps of family individuals. They are sometimes divided, withdrawing the individuals within their inner space. Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe contrast between the exterior and interior design is accentuated by the roughly textured facade with a simple form, uniting various layers of the interior. Satisfying both opposing style preferences from different family members, the exterior design turned out to be a comfortable brick house providing a relaxing environment versus the modern interior neatly composed of contemporary forms, the house becomes an harmonious space embracing diverse tastes of each family members.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe detached housing area in Pangyo—a new town near the Seoul—is allocated into similar rectangular sites. The most well-known efficient way of planning these kinds of sites is placing a rectangular mass at one side while leaving the open space on the other side. However, our plan was using the void spaces as the exterior space that appeared by the misalignment between two masses. Although the exterior space physically became smaller, the psychological space experience was able to expand by the interaction of the void spaces between the rough brick solids and interior space.Save this picture!AxonometricThe tall stairway is the first identification space when entering the L house. This stairway space plays an important role as the common area to communicate different interior spaces and situations that are piled up in a limited area. The stairway mediates each layers of lifestyles and energetically moves around the house without borders like the movement of one of the family members, the cute puppy. Along the stairway, there are two children’s room, a master room, an attic and a rooftop linked by the skip floor that is half step above.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinTo avoid the stairway space being isolated, multiple windows are placed on the east wall, which is the west side of the void space. The small windows improve the lighting and protect privacy by blocking the view towards the interior space.Save this picture!Section 1The same design vocabulary is used for the inner side of the stairway so that the space would be able to exchange light and bring an opened view. The opened skylight view provided on the high ceiling window symbolizes the center of the house. The rich atmosphere with various light, air, and sight provides the stairway a semi-outdoor space so that each family members can experience their own entrance gates.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe living room on the ground floor is planned with a wide glass skin on the north facade to embrace the local nature with the Woonjung river and Cheonggye Mountain. “We come home much earlier than before to see this scenery.” says the clients with a happy face.Save this picture!Section 2The clients have initially asked the architects before planning to see the north scenery in the living room. Contrary to the widely opened living room, the library on the semi-basement is a space for silence and moderation. The library is floored by darkly colored wood, using exposed concrete walls that are connected the sunken garden, which is  to one of the in between void space with the toemaru—the traditional Korean intermediate space—where people feel good to take a cup of tea.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe different floor level in the skip floor continues to the inside of the children’s room, dividing the function of the room into a relaxation versus work space. The son’s room is created by the two masses meeting on the top of each other, exposing two different sloped roofs which provides an uniqueness to the overall space.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe master bedroom was designed as a compact space following the client’s demand. More than half of area is planned as a walk-in-closet allowing a huge storage space. The master bedroom is designed with a higher ceiling space with a corner window so that the space doesn’t feel too tight.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe top area of the front and rear mass is composed with a rooftop and attic, where the family can enjoy the north side of the nature view from the rooftop and the sunlight from the south attic. In order to maximize the effectiveness of these spaces, the slopes of the roof is designed higher on the outwards of the central stairway, which consequently created a reverse-pitched-roof. The slopes of the reverse-pitched-roof prevents external contamination by blocking the rainwater flowing outwards from the two masses, and collecting them into the in-between void space.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessMook Salon / Okuwada ArchitectsSelected ProjectsOMA Fiction – Non Fiction: Exhibition, Map & MoreExhibition Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/779218/l-house-aandd Clipboard L House / aandd CopyAbout this officeaanddOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeongnam-siSouth KoreaPublished on December 24, 2015Cite: “L House / aandd” 23 Dec 2015.

GDP Growth Doesn’t Meet Expectations

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / GDP Growth Doesn’t Meet Expectations Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago In Q1 2017, the economy grew by just an estimated 0.7 percent according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, a slower rate of growth than Q4 2016’s rate of 2.1 percent.This was below the Wall Street estimate for the quarter, but in the opinion of Brett F Ewing and S. Lance Mitchell, Chief Market Strategist and Research Director (respectively) for First Franklin Financial Services, this is an “inflection point” for the economy in the midst of a tight labor market.“One thing that surprised us was the pickup in business investment despite the uncertainty in the future of business policies that the Trump administration is targeting,” said Ewing and Mitchell. “That’s a great sign because if the environment improves, which we think it will, more investment will follow. It definitely shows a pent-up demand and willingness to invest, even in the face of a murky future.”The New York Times noted that the drop in spending followed a large increase in Q4 2016, and was an inevitable reversal. Michelle Meyer, Chief United States Economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, told Times that healthier business investment indicated that the overall economy was performing better than the headline numbers would suggest.Additionally, the report notes that the current-dollar GDP increased 3.0 percent, or $137.9 billion, in the first quarter to a level of $19,007.3 billion. In the fourth quarter, current-dollar GDP increased 4.2 percent, or $194.1 billion. The price index for gross domestic purchases increased 2.6 percent in the first quarter, compared with an increase of 2.0 percent in the fourth quarter. The PCE price index increased 2.4 percent, compared with an increase of 2.0 percent. Excluding food and energy prices, the PCE price index increased 2.0 percent, compared with an increase of 1.3 percent.The Bureau of Economic Analysis emphasized that the first-quarter advance estimate released on Friday is based on source data that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency.
