The project of this house foresees both to reconstruct and augment a ruin into a weekend retreat at a plot with extraordinary morphological characteristics, within Cavado River and its tributary. The plot, of 4.060m2, is located in a protected natural area and has for conditions a concrete construction and the preservation of all trees. The constructive capacity was given by the existing ruin. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziSince the first visit of the site it was clear we were dealing with a delicate project. The project placement on the plot was essential given that the surroundings were the main reference for the construction. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziHaving practiced water-ski for 20 years, the river grounds the weekend house for the clients. For them, the exceptional outlook one enjoys should be an element of the house; for us, architects, should be an evident inside space value, but also, the opposite concern was relevant – the house could only act as a significant element on the landscape. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziHaving identified the site, a pragmatic analyse of the circumstances was in order: the demands of the program were a house for a couple and child, a visitor’s suit preferably dislocated from the house as also should be the storehouse for the water-ski activities holding a shower, bathroom and storage area. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziThe area of the house, inevitably small, was specified by the reduced dimension of the pre-existent ruin. Thus, the first sketches of the solution appear in its dependence… Meanwhile, the fundamental decision revealed itself through the house orientation. Its final location on site, at right angles to the slop seeks for a better relation with the plot and the platform where it “lays”, avoiding all trees and damage to the outside area. The weightless intervention enhanced by the overhanging part that shoots off the riverbank cliff maximizes the transparent appearance from the river reducing land occupancy. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziThe house makes a dialectic reference to Malaparte House by Adalberto Libera and the remarkable table Less by Jean Nouvel, suggesting the constructive solution for the top of the hanging part. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziAs a half-buried house in its relation to the main access it appears diminished; on the other hand, from the river it appears as a glass frame dissimulated on the vegetation. The relation established by the house and ruin defines both the access and the scale of the intervention, transforming the ruin into a constant presence from the inside of the house such as any other landscape element. Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziThe concrete plasticity in relation with the luxuriant flora was determinant, therefore the careful concrete cast drawing. This concrete volume with accessible roof was entirely covered with birch on the inside and has grey self-levelled pavement.Save this picture!Courtesy of Correia RagazziProject gallerySee allShow lessFrexport Headquarters / CC ArquitectosSelected ProjectsSeifert House / Bau KulturSelected Projects Share House in Gerês / Correia/Ragazzi ArquitectosSave this projectSaveHouse in Gerês / Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos House in Gerês / Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos Photographslast_img read more

ADAPT House rocks with 40-year achievement

first_imgMaeve O’Brien Kelly, retired admnistrator from ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services with Monica McElvaney, director of services“I AM woman, hear me roar/ in numbers too big to ignore”:  ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services’ Monica McElvaney invoked the Helen Reddy classic as she signed off on 40th anniversary celebrations for this women’s shelter. “The theme song [to 1975, UN International Year of Women] that is about the individual and collective journey of women, which is the story of ADAPT – about their struggles, pain, abuse but about the power of women as well”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Founding members Maeve O’Brien-Kelly, Nancy Punch, Ann Kavanagh and former staff such as Miriam Duffy, head of Rape Crisis Mid-West, supported this upbeat occasion for past and present staff and board members and invited service users.The education/ training/ refuge centre in Rosbrien opened with little more than steely determination in 1974 against some opposition within the community and church.On Tuesday June 10, 2014, to-the-point speeches were brief between footage of the early decades along the lines of ‘Reeling in the Years’, and the live orchestrated cut of Reddy’s ‘I Am Woman’.It is clear that core issues driving the mission are as urgent as ever, with ADAPT now looking at a 20 per cent cut from funding agencies whilst struggling to maintain high service levels.Helen O’Donnell of Limerick City Business Association, board member for 25 years, addressed the overwhelming need today of such organisations. “70 per cent of women in relationships experiencing abuse do not report it”.She charted the organisation’s rise to prominence, from Mary Robinson writing in The Irish Times 1994; winning an AIB Better Ireland award in 2000; to 2013’s state contribution of €1,176,774, fundraising of €169,057 and now, the box-fresh launch of ADAPT’s charity shop in Sarsfield Street.From left, Majella Foley-Friel, chair Alix Tiernan, Nóirín Ní Riain, Aine Doody, head of services Monica McElvany, Helen O’Donnell and retired founder member, Maeve O’Brien Kelly at the 40th year celebrations of ADAPTCurrent chairperson Alix Tiernan paid attention to strategic work in developing Prevention policies as well as core intervention and crisis work.There are school programmes such as the pioneering ‘Healthy Relationships’ module and awareness training for professionals. Post-vention policies and services serve women and their children in making the transition to a  better life. “We are vibrant as an organisation, we are able to respond, we find the ways”.Today, ADAPT has 14 apartments for crisis refuge, runs education and training courses, provides counselling, childcare and therapy, and additional services such as court accompaniment and Outreach clinics.Helpline 1500  200 504.

Mandatory pensions preferable to auto-enrolment, say Irish actuaries

first_imgIreland’s actuaries are recommending that the government make private pensions mandatory for all workers, rather than introduce a UK-style system of automatic enrolment. The Society of Actuaries in Ireland said a compulsory pension system should be developed over the next five years as a way of increasing pensions coverage and making sure individuals have enough in retirement. Bringing in auto-enrolment is potentially wasteful, if the government later goes down the mandatory route anyway, it said. The recommendation is among the conclusions from a working party on pensions policy set up by the society in March 2013.  The aim was to join the debate on whether a mandatory system was better than other methods, such as auto-enrolment, to complement the state pension. The society said it knew auto-enrolment might seem more palatable than a mandatory system in the current economic environment in Ireland.  “However, in our view, a mandatory system is superior to an auto-enrolment regime for a number of reasons,” it said. A mandatory regime was a more effective way of increasing private pensions coverage than auto-enrolment, it said, citing international experience. Also, a mandatory system should be easier to run since there will be no opt-out and opt-in issues, it said. “Establishing the more complex system of auto-enrolment and subsequently introducing the mandatory regime could potentially be a waste of resources,” it added. Because it would take at least five years to bring a mandatory scheme into operation, the society said there was a need to move ahead quickly with decision-making and planning. Last April, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said in a review of Ireland’s pension system that making it compulsory for private workers to establish a pension was the cheapest and most effective approach to increasing coverage of private pensions. It said Ireland and New Zealand were the only OECD countries that did not have a mandatory earnings-related pillar to complement the state pension at basic level.last_img read more
