In a small village in the Uckermark, north of Berlin, a large barn has been converted into a country house with an additional independent apartment.Save this picture!© Thomas HeimannThe barn was built 140 years ago in a mixed construction of brick masonry and timber. In its time, an ultramodern functional building. After the barn was sold and divided the system was structurally converted for two settler families, and cattle, into semi-detached homes. One half has now been redesigned by architect Thomas Kröger for a young family, using the pre-existing language of the house and adapting it by its own means and rules in reinventing itself.Save this picture!© Thomas HeimannThis former cowshed along with the barn is an extremely stable building with thick stone walls, small windows upstairs, and a large wooden gate below. The inherent beauty of the crude truss and the spaciousness of the room were once again experienced only by the coring.Save this picture!© Thomas HeimannThe centre of the house is a double-height living room with fireplace. Three major new arched openings that can be closed by large wooden gates, open to expose the orchard, and green expanses beyond.Save this picture!Section AAThe house is designed so that the great hall is unheated and is surrounded by an enclosed and heated body of rooms. So for cold seasons only the smaller and more sociable areas of the house can be used, like birds’ nests.Save this picture!© Thomas HeimannRight next to the hall and slightly elevated is the living room and a free-standing kitchen. The dining area is topped by a wooden pyramid. Upstairs, above and surrounding the hall are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two studies, and a loggia is enclosed.Save this picture!Floor PlanAt the gable end the holiday apartment for guests is located. The apartment is accessed separately whilst additionally having a connection to the central hall. On the ground floor the living and dining area is located and on the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom.Save this picture!© Thomas HeimannA transformation also took place around the envelope of the building. The difference to the structure on the street side is barely readable. With the new openings down to the private garden, the representative gesture brings only the desired level of integration between indoor and outdoor space with them.Save this picture!Section FFThe entire building was upgraded and a considered approach to energy was made in this careful restoration. The walls of the heated rooms are insulated on the inside with a wall heating and clay plaster. All rooms keep the same surface qualities, whether heated or unheated.Save this picture!© Thomas HeimannOriginally published on June 25th, 2015.Project gallerySee allShow lessAnastasia Elrouss Designs a Vertical Eco-Village in Beirut, a New Way to Inhabit the…Architecture NewsNACTO Releases Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery in the Fight Against the C…Architecture News Share LANDHAUS / Thomas Kröger Architekt Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

Michael Faber Under The Skin

first_imgFaber’s first novel tears away protective layers of propriety, leaving the flesh and bone of society quivering and in full view. The realisation that something strange is going on is immediate, as the reader is confronted with the mysteriously repugnant alien Isserley, who scours the Scottish Highlands, under the command of her superiors, in search of beefy male hitchhikers. Her freakish appearance (thick glasses, crooked spine, disproportionately large breasts) is the result of painful operations, yet offers a bizarre erotic appeal, which allows Isserley to snag her victims and send them to The Farm for “processing”. This sounds gruesome and gratuitous, yet the beauty of his novel relies on our gradual realisation of Faber’s gist. He combines the fantastic, in the form of Isserley’s race, and the familiar, epitomised by the domestic vignettes of Isserley’s passengers, so that the one aspect emphasises the other and we appreciate the complexity and strangeness of both. “The monster without is the monster within” is a common literary theme, recalling Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, but Faber provides a modern twist by examining how we deal with “monsters”, personal or otherwise, through the eyes of a protagonist who, though frightful in form, embodies the complex paradoxes of the human condition. This is re-enforced by the fact that Isserley refers to her own race as “humans”, while our own species are “vodsels”, and the manner in which she justifies her actions towards “vodsels” reflects our own treatment not only of animals but also of other races and different religions. Faber, therefore, provides an exploration of our own predatory nature and even, despite our strong disapproval of her actions, manages to stir sympathy for Isserley in her moral dilemma. Under the Skin, then, works on a number of levels and is far more than a cheap thriller; in his discussion of the sometimes unavoidable objectification of one species by another, Faber provokes us to continually reassess our moral stance, making this a gripping, if not immediately gratifying, read.ARCHIVE: 3rd week TT 2004last_img read more

GUEST BLOG: Why I Changed My Mind About Medical Marijuana

first_imgRead more posts about legalizing medical marijuana.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: April 13, 2016 GUEST BLOG: Why I Changed My Mind About Medical Marijuana Medical Marijuana,  The Blog Two years ago, I was a no vote on the legalization of medical marijuana, but that was before I heard from families in my district and across the state that will benefit from this important legislation. This bill will allow doctors to prescribe the treatment they see fit to help heal their ailing patients.After hearing from patients, their families, and advocates, I knew we were missing an opportunity to help people who are suffering. I heard from a woman name Erin McCann who shared with me stories of her own child’s struggles with seizures, and Erin urged me to hold hearings. Erin’s story is one we cannot turn our back on.And as a father of three, I cannot simply look into the eyes of these kids and see that suffering without wanting to help.We should not deny doctor-recommended treatment that could help cancer patients that are receiving chemotherapy or children like Erin’s who suffer from debilitating seizures.It’s no longer difficult for me to vote yes on this bill. In fact, I wouldn’t do anything other than vote yes for this bill.The legalization of medical marijuana will be a relief to great families, like Erin’s, who are suffering right in front of us.As a former law enforcement officer – as a former narcotics officer – and as a parent, I urge final passage of this legislation by the House so Governor Wolf can sign it. It is long past time to provide this important medical relief to patients and families across the commonwealth.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter By: Rep. Mike Vereblast_img read more
