A weathered mountain top with a magnificent view and strict building regulation determined Arkitektværelset’s design of this secluded cabin. The high altitude mountain area of Imingfjell, Norway, is beautiful, but weathered and windblown. It also has rather strict building regulations. Cabins are to have sectioned windows, standing wood paneling, 22-27 degrees gabled roofs, and triple bargeboards.Save this picture!© Marte Garmann«Limitations are the mother of all playful creativity, and in this case, it really became a goal to try to create within the boundaries,» says head architect Grethe Løland of Norwegian studio Arkitektværelset. The plot for the cabin is situated at an altitude of 1125m, within an area exposed to avalanche danger. A more detailed analysis, however, showed that it was securely outside the danger zone. «We kept the original idea of a «protecting hood», from the initial project sketches, says Løland.Save this picture!© Marte GarmannThe ore pine roof protects the «eyes» of the cabin in the front, and prevents rain to dribble down the main entrance in the cabin’s «neck». The hoodie thus has obvious practical functions, but at the same time, the contrast between the angled pine paneling and the black painted cabin body creates a strong geometric form. «The building becomes an understated iconic sculpture in an area that most cabins look alike, and our clients really liked its form,» says Løland.Save this picture!© Marte GarmannSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Marte GarmannTheir clients had commissioned a robust and efficient little cabin oriented towards the view over the lake. The panoramic, divided corner windows and large sliding doors in the front, bring the nature close into the kitchen and living room. Inside, oak flooring and paneling also reflects the natural colors from the surroundings. In the back of the cabin, there is a master bedroom, bathroom and a sauna that ingeniously doubles as a guest room. Above the rooms there is an open attic that offers sleeping space for 8 people.Save this picture!© Marte GarmannProject gallerySee allShow lessBoston Startup Spaceus Brings Pop-Up Energy to Vacant StorefrontsArchitecture NewsCraft Urban Ramp Creil / Espace LibreSelected Projects Share CopyCabins & Lodges, Houses•Norway Manufacturers: HTH, Svenneby Sag og Høvleri, Timberwise, Sigvartsen Steinindustri The Hooded Cabin / Arkitektværelset AsSave this projectSaveThe Hooded Cabin / Arkitektværelset As Photographs: Marte Garmann Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs Grethe Løland Cabins & Lodges ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year: last_img read more

Plant ‘blankies’

first_imgOther ways to help Not warm-blooded You won’t truly know whether your protective efforts weresuccessful until warmer weather arrives. Plants with cold-damagedroots may not show signs of injury until temperatures rise and theplant’s demand for water from the roots is greater, Lindstrom said. “Don’t just buy a cultivar of azalea or other woody ornamentalyou’ve heard about or one you think would do well in yourlandscape” he said. “Do a little research and make sure the plantyou’re buying is suited to your area. Then you can save yourblankets for keeping your family warm.” “Container plants are especially susceptible to cold temperatures,”he said. “Their roots are more exposed to the cold because they areabove ground.” Even if covering did work, Lindstrom says the wind usually worksagainst your efforts by blowing your hard work away. Plus, using ablanket to cover your plants can also result in broken limbs. By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaCovering outdoor plants with blankets and plastic to protect themfrom the cold may make you feel better, but chances are it won’tkeep them cozy. If you really want to help your outdoor plants prepare for thecold, Lindstrom says the time to help is actually in the spring andsummer. Baby the special ones If you want to “baby” your plants, save the special treatment forprized possessions such as a banana tree, he said. If it’s a one-of-a-kind plant and you really don’t want to lose it, build amakeshift shelter for it. Time will tell “Even if the covering stays on, a blanket on a plant isn’t going tocreate heat as it does on a person,” Lindstrom said. “We’re warm-blooded, and we create heat. Plants aren’t. The only heat availableunder the blanket would be coming from the soil.” “If you take good care of your plants in the warm months by keepingthem insect-free, giving them ample water and fertilizing them,” hesaid, “you’re helping build a hardier plant.” “The added weight of the blanket can put pressure on the limbs andcause them to break,” he said. “You have to weigh the risks. If youput up a large enough structure that will block the wind, it wouldhelp. But then you’ve all but built a mini-greenhouse.” University of Georgia horticulturist Orville Lindstrom saysalthough it’s been done for years, giving your outdoor plants ablanket won’t keep them warm unless you find a way to anchor it. Plants growing close to the ground usually benefit from the heatradiating from the soil, he said. “Tall, more open plants don’treceive as much heat and are not as protected from the cold,”Lindstrom said. “When winter arrives, it’s not a shock to them because they havegradually prepared for it,” Lindstrom said. “Temperatures wouldhave to drop below 20 degrees to damage the stem tissue oflandscape plants. And I haven’t seen that happen in the South.” Because outdoor plants are out in the elements 24 hours a day, theyadapt to temperature changes. You can protect your container plants several ways. Place theminside your home, garage, greenhouse or shed. You can also pushcontainer plants together and mulch or cover the sides of thecontainers to decrease heat loss. The overall key to making sure your landscape plants survive eachwinter is planting the right variety from the start. Lindstrom says container plants are the ones that need the “babyingtreatment.”last_img read more

Cricket News We quite like being treated as ‘Underdogs’, says Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes

first_imgUnfortunately for Bangladesh, the side has already lost two pillars – Shakib Al Hasan and Taskin Ahmed due to their respective injuries. “It’s been a hard grind but a great competition as well (with) lots of positives in terms of experiencing tough cricket.”“But it’s taken its toll and the preparation is not ideal. I only hope that on the day we show that we can play some cricket,” he said. Prior to this series, New Zealand lost to India 4-1 in the five-match ODI series, and Steve Rhodes believes that the bruises would still be there.”I think they’ll use those bruises to bounce back and we’ve got to be ready for a tough New Zealand turning up,” he said.Bangladesh is surely a better side to one toured the last time, winning their last series against Windies on its home soil, the momentum is still with the Tigers. Ahead of their first game, Rhodes believes the team has the ability to clinch the series and it’s better to not write them off. “It’s a really big task but it doesn’t mean we can’t win,” he concluded. Bangladesh will play three ODIs and as many Tests against New Zealand. The first ODI will be played at McLean Park, Napier on Wednesday. Bangladesh has never won a series in New Zealand.

Steve Rhodes believes that upstaging Kiwis on their home soil will be a tough task and his side is pretty aware of that. However, he believes that his side has a lot of match-winners and it will be difficult for New Zealand to beat them. “We know it will be very difficult, we’ve got to be realistic. But we quite like being underdogs. We can surprise a few people being an underdog and I think New Zealand know they’ve still got to play some very good cricket to beat us.” highlightslast_img read more
