This house is built on a 450 square meters lot, located on a former park in Bucharest. In order to preserve the rich vegetation of the park, as well as the general ambiance of the area, the architect and the beneficiary agreed to keep the highest possible number of the existing trees. As a result, three out of the four trees survived. They also determined the placing of the building, becoming determining factors, just like the general urban provisions.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirRecommended ProductsWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodAccording to the zoning planning, the building was a semidetached house attached on the East side. Combining the beneficiary’s desire to have a tiles wrapped wooden frame with the idea of having modern lines, led to three slopes roof concept, descending inwardly to a narrow area of a hidden gutter. This approach was acceptable to everyone, while creating generous and spectacular spaces on the second floor, where the indoors ceiling followed the oblique lines of the roof.

The second floor is extended over the first floor with a bedroom in a generous 3m cantilever, which offer the courtyard more space, while providing shadow to the lower level terrace.

(large roof windows) The hallway of the second floor gains functionality as an adequate playing area for children.

The high level of trust and partnership between the architect, client and constructor (builder) was reflected in the cost effectiveness of the investment. Specifically, the efficient use of the under average priced materials replaced more expensive solutions.

It is generally expected that within the first year of use (the time period between the finishing of the construction and the photo session) the home owners to add items that express their personality and functionality. That was not the case. After a full year of use, the house looked like a newly constructed building, except few toys in the playing area, which only added a fun touch.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirProject gallerySee allShow less”American City: St. Louis Architecture: Three Centuries of Classic Design” ExhibitionArticlesMuseum Nasional Indonesia / AbodayArticles Share CopyHouses•Bucharest, Romania Area:  317 m² Photographs ArchDaily Projects “COPY” CN House / Plus Line DesignSave this projectSaveCN House / Plus Line Designlast_img read more

It has now been updated again and reissued as a PDF download available from the Federation’s website.It provides information and advice for bakers and others working in the food manufacturing industry which, if followed, will help them reduce risk arising from employee exposure to flour and other ingredient dusts, said FOB.Following the guidance will also help employers in the industry meet their duty of care for employees and contribute to ensuring health and safety compliance, it added. In particular, the guidance provides advice on how to assess dust levels in the workplace and outlines a range of practical measures which can be taken to reduce dust exposures as low as reasonably practicable.“I am sure that as before the revised guidance will be read and used throughout the baking and wider food industry,” said FOB chief executive Gordon Polson.“I would like to thank all members of the FHSC who have given many hours of their time to the review of this essential industry guidance.”The Federation represents the UK’s largest baking companies who manufacture sliced and wrapped bread, bakery snacks and other bread products. Its members include: Fine Lady Bakeries, Jackson’s Bakery, Roberts Bakery and Warburtons.To find out more about the dangers dust can present in a bakery, read our feature: ‘Dust: a danger that can’t be ignored’.last_img read more
