The Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill

first_imgPhotographs:  Tom Gildon, Keith CollieText description provided by the architects. The Shadow House is a new build private house in Camden, North London. It has won a 2011 RIBA Award, Best small house of the year award at the British Homes Award 2011, received a commendation at the 2011 NLA Awards and was longlisted for the Manser Medal. We carried out the entire project ourselves, from finding the site, through planning, design, construction and manufacture of the fittings, fixtures and furniture.Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe Shadow House is our own home, but is also an experiment in making a generic small city house. While working for other practices, we designed luxurious houses for private clients and worked on complex urban social housing developments; we were keen to extend this experience into building more modest single houses, in order to test our own ideas on living with less. We wanted to create intense interior spaces with maximum emotional effect. Aware of the overcrowded and overpriced London land market, we set out to find a suitable site.Save this picture!© Keith CollieEventually, we found a 38m2 scrap of land on St Paul’s Crescent in the Camden Square Conservation Area, just north of Kings Cross. It comprised a tumbledown parking garage abutting a terrace of well-preserved late-Victorian houses. Previous owners had made repeated, unsuccessful attempts to win permission to build a new cottage there, and the Planning Inspectorate had upheld the refusals at Appeal. An application to build a new house on a similar plot nearby had resulted in Judicial Review and the attentions of the ODPM. Although we were conscious of the extreme sensitivity of building in this area, the site’s chequered history depressed its value sufficiently for us to buy the site (for £75k) late in the summer of 2006. Save this picture!© Keith CollieOur dealings with the Camden Planners were protracted and delicate. We realised that building on such a contentious site would require a collaborative approach, so we developed the design in close conversation with the Council’s officers. The maximum envelope for the building was determined by its relationship to its neighbours: many ancient lights overlooked our site. The greatest argument, however, was over the building’s external appearance. Keen to employ rapid, low-carbon construction, our earliest scheme was entirely timber-built. However, the conservation lobby’s opinion was that the house should instead reflect its tough, industrial-era context. We took an extreme response to this brief, proposing a dutch-format engineering brick with a black glazed finish resembling the cut face of coal. We contrasted this with sheer, frameless glazing, and with accents of white statuarietto marble, echoing the plaster reveals and porticoes of the surrounding Victorian architecture. Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe tectonic of the house was therefore driven by its physical and legislative context. We had developed a robust and monolithic design, reinforced with an unforgiving, monochromatic skin. Because our budget was so tight, we planned to carry out as much work as possible ourselves and limited our palette to primary materials. We found these limits liberating rather than restricting: there is great poetry in practical things, so we reveled in finding simple means of assembling the house. Save this picture!© Keith CollieIn order to give a sense of space to what could feel like very constrained rooms, it was important for us to be able to modulate the section and work with some of the heights. Different ceiling heights, adjusted by changes in the floor below and by different height roofs produce a range from 3m in the living room to 2.1m in the entrance area. This allowed us to give each space its own temperature, sound quality and sense of cosiness or airiness. There are certain knots of intensity, where the spatial and functional requirements of the house are tangled up. Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe site lies on made ground, a mixture of mobile clay and spoil from the cutting of railway lines to Kings Cross and St Pancras. The substructure comprises reinforced concrete ground beams and piles, while the superstructure is in loadbearing masonry. Larch glu-lam beams (over-sized to maintain structural integrity in the event of fire) are laid directly into the brickwork to support the roof and floor structures. Floor finishes are in polished concrete, poured in-situ. Larch blockboard panels form a back-lit plafond français to the living room and bedroom, and line the deep internal reveals to form inviting window seats. The composition is completed in off-white fitted cabinetry, which we made in the house before sending them off-site to be spray-finished. Construction work began in August 2009 and we moved in, to our great delight, at the end of January 2011.Save this picture!© Keith CollieProject gallerySee allShow lessOil Silo Home / PinkCloud.DKArticlesRiga International Airport Winning Proposal / Haptic ArchitectsArticles Share The Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill ArchDaily Year:  Save this picture!© Tom Gildon+ 31 Share “COPY” Architects: Liddicoat & Goldhill Area Area of this architecture project Houses Projects CopyHouses•London, United Kingdom The Shadow House / Liddicoat & GoldhillSave this projectSaveThe Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill Area:  77 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/207581/the-shadow-house-liddicoat-goldhill Clipboard 2011 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/207581/the-shadow-house-liddicoat-goldhill Clipboard United Kingdom “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLiddicoat & GoldhillOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on February 15, 2012Cite: “The Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill ” 15 Feb 2012.

United Utilities staff trade pay for further benefits

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. UnitedUtilities has launched a company-wide flexible benefits scheme that allowsstaff to trade off their salaries against other work perks.Thewater and telecoms giant is rolling out the new scheme to its 4,000 staff insupport of a culture change programme. Lastyear, the company re-branded as United Utilities, following the merger of NorthWest Water and Norweb in 1996.HRmanager Heather Lee explained that employees can choose extra benefits online –for a lowering of their salary – including more holidays, medical insurance orchildcare vouchers. Shesaid the scheme was a good motivation tool and would promote thedecision-making skills of employees.TheHR team pushed for all employees having access to the scheme when it waslaunched last month, but this involved training staff who had never used acomputer before to use the online system.Employeeswho do not normally have access to a computer will be able to use dedicatedkiosks placed in work areas. Staff were given two weeks to enrol, and there hasbeen a 20 per cent take up for this year’s scheme.Theprogramme will run for a year, and then the list of products and services willbe reviewed. Staff who choose to take all the holiday benefits can ‘buy’ up to33 days’ holiday.Themost popular choices were extra holidays and a PC leasing scheme for homecomputers: “We had designed the scheme in partnership with employees so we knewit was going to be popular. It enables employees to choose for themselves whatsuits them best,” said Lee.Lee said United Utilities has also introduced a paperlesssystem for employees to claim overtime, expenses and book time off.

Low oil prices and Gulf of Mexico hurricane hit BP’s third quarter earnings

first_imgOutgoing BP chief says third quarter 2019 profits were hurt ‘significantly’ by hurricane in US Gulf of MexicoBP chief executive Bob Dudley said: “BP delivered strong operating cash flow and underlying earnings in a quarter that saw lower oil and gas prices and significant hurricane impacts.“Our focus remains firmly on maintaining financial discipline and delivering safe and reliable operations throughout BP.“We’re also continuing to advance our strategy, making strong progress with our divestment plans and building exciting new opportunities in fast-growing downstream markets in Asia.”Hurricane Barry developed in the Gulf of Mexico and hit the US mainland in July 2019 (Credit: NASA/Wikimedia Commons)Earlier this year, it was confirmed Dudley will step down from his role at the helm of BP after almost a decade in February.He will be succeeded in the role by Bernard Looney, who currently heads the firm’s upstream division. BP’s profits fell during the third quarter of 2019 as the UK oil major counted the cost of poor weather, weak market conditions and divestment charges BP offloads Alaska interests during as part of restructuring driveLow oil prices were partly to blame for the drop in earnings during the quarter, with weak market conditions seeing a barrel of Brent crude trading at an average of $62 during the quarter, compared to $69 in the previous three months and $75 a year earlier.BP revealed that upstream production – excluding output from its near-20% stake in Russian oil company Rosneft – was down 2.5% on the previous year at 2.568 million barrels of oil equivalent per day.This decline coming as a result of “maintenance across a number of regions and weather impacts of Hurricane Barry in the US Gulf of Mexico”.Divestment income rose to $7.2bn at the end of the quarter, buoyed by the sale of all BP’s interests in Alaska to Hilcorp Energy in August for $5.6bn – with this income expected to rise to $10bn by the end of the year.The decision to restructure the business follows BP’s $10.5bn purchase of shale assets from miner BHP in 2018, which has seen it increase its presence across the productive oil and gas regions of the US.The company confirmed it will issue a quarterly dividend of 10.25 cents per ordinary share, expected to be paid in December.center_img BP has ended its membership with three US trade associations over climate differences (Credit: Mike Mozart/Flickr) BP profits suffered in the third quarter of 2019 on the back of weak oil and gas prices, the impact of Hurricane Barry and infrastructure maintenance.Underlying profits for the quarter stood at $2.3bn, compared to $3.8bn in the same period of last year – reflecting a 40% year-on-year decline, which was less than analysts had expected.The effect of a one-off $2.6bn charge linked to asset sales caused the UK oil major to report a $700m net loss for the quarter – the first time that has happened for more than three years.At the time of writing, shares in the company were down just over 3% in the day’s trading following the news.last_img read more
