The House KLR was built 1982 in Cologne as a townhouse with two units. In these days it was one of the first realized buildings of the architect who designed it for her husband and herself. A rentable in-law apartment with a separate staircase was supposed to support the young couple financially.Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschThe district Deutz, where House KLR is located, was traditionally regarded as a secondary part of Cologne, whose centre resides on the opposite side of the river Rhine. In the last decade the once neglected dirstrict Deutz evolved into a popular address within Cologne’s inner city.Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschMost parts of the neighborhood were errected in the 1930’s with 3-4 story residential buildings while the narrow building site of House KLR was used as a fruit and vegetable garden until the 1980’s. The simple and practical post-war architecture, nowadays most common in German cities, dominates the area today.Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschOne challenge regarding the design was to follow building laws while producing sufficient living space on the small plot. The valid building law requested 3.0 meters distance between ground floor and the eastbound property line while the second floor required 4.5 meters distance to the same boundary. In reaction to these demands a sculptural structure originated that seems to jump back and forth playfully multiple times. Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschThe diversely leaping cubes led to additional useful surfaces which made the construction of a sufficiently spacious roof terrace for the in-law apartment possible. The two remaining facades – one facing the street the other the garden – were designed in the style of the sculptural structure of the east façade, thereby, preserving the element of the oriel present in the surrounding buildings. Besides the motif of the oriel the small window formats and the plastered facade as typical elements of the neighbouring housing were included into the design. Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschThe main apartment reaches over the three lower levels, the entrance to the amount of the middle level.Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschThe kitchen and dining area are set in the lowest level, so that the garden can be used as an additional dining area during the summer. The garden is also regarded as a recreational area, as for his unique position – below street level and shielded by the enclosing wall – it gains the character of a lonesome oasis in the midst of the city. The bedrooms of the main apartment are located on the first floor and are connected with the two other floors through stairs within the apartment. Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschThe in-law apartment is also structured as a maisonette, and reaches from the second floor till the attic. Today it accommodates the Cologne architecture office of archequipe. Save this picture!© Roland UnterbuschIn 2012, exactly 30 years after building House KLR, extensive renovation work was performed. All facades were newly-plastered. Roof sheetings and window benches were renewed, the windows painted in a corresponding color. Inside, the stone cottage floors were refurbished, and walls plastered smoothly. Bathrooms on all levels were completely renovated.

TAGSLimerick Post Keeping Limerick Posted Limerickroad safetysafety WhatsApp Hassett’s Cross with Thomond Park in the background.LOCALS in the Hassett’s Cross area of Limerick City and people who walk or exercise nearby are deeply concerned about cars driving up on the footpath to dodge traffic lights and queues of traffic.Local woman Olivia Cotter was one of the people who raised the issue after she saw a young child almost knocked down by a driver in a hurry. “The traffic there can be horrendous,” she told the Limerick Post.“I’ve witnessed a woman walking with her little daughter who was on a scooter. A car drove up from the path alongside the child and continued to drive through the open area of the path at Hassett’s pub in order to avoid traffic,  without any concerns for the welfare of the mother and child.”Local woman Olivia Cotter witnessed the incidentMs Cotter said neither she nor the child’s mother could catch the registration number of the car, which sped away.“They child was lucky she was not ran over. It was very close,” she added.“This pathway is used by many pedestrians and it is a danger.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up I would hope any public representatives reading this could help out by asking the council to erect a barrier or a railing to safeguard the public from such reckless drivers.“A railing like the one alongside the school would be suitable. I hope something will be done soon before somebody is killed.“This has been happening a lot and it is very unfair on other road users.

Online AML registration system for upmarket letting agents finally goes live

by ,

first_imgHMRC’s online Anti-Money Laundering or AML registration system for lettings agents has finally gone live four months after its original launch date in January following delays caused by IT difficulties.Letting agents are the final part of the industry to be included in the AML regulations which since January have covered agents who rent properties for more than £8,800 (€10,000) a month.While this might sound a lot, in London this includes nearly 3,000 rental properties marketed by hundreds of agents, and another 1,000 properties in the Home Counties.The agents marketing these types of homes must now register with HMRC, follow the AML regulations and have until January 10th next year to comply in order to trade legally. This includes ensuring that relevant staff within each agency have passed the relevant approval checks.£100 feeIn January, when the registration system was originally expected to go live, HMRC dropped its £100 fee charged to each agency when first registering to be supervised.This decision appeared to be a sop to agents after the annual per branch renewal fee was increased to £300, up from £110 five years ago.A month after this, AML specialist IamProperty revealed that almost a third of agents were unsure if they were compliant with the rules, that many believed reporting AML activity to HMRC might lose them sales and that others felt that the process of complying with the rules was too time consuming.Read the official AML guidance for estate agents. Anti Money Laundering directive AML Savills May 27, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Norway: KONGSBERG Celebrates 200th Anniversary

We can look back on a unique and memorable history, and we are now a leading international high-technology corporation,” says CEO Walter Qvam of KONGSBERG.1814: The establishment of the Norwegian defence industryKongsberg weapons factory (KV) was founded by Poul Steenstrup, mining superintendent and participant at the national assembly at Eidsvoll, on 20 March 1814. This represented the establishment of Norway’s first factory, even before the industrial revolution in Norway.During the spring of 1814, Norway had gained its constitution. And the work of building the country’s first factory began in Kongsberg. The establishment of Kongsberg weapons factory in 1814 must be viewed in the light of other events of the same year. In January 1814, Norway had been ceded to Sweden, after centuries of union with Denmark. However, in Norway forces were working to give the country independence, and the need for a defence industry developed.From the industrial revolution to international high technology supplier KONGSBERG has experienced numerous eras, including Norway’s incipient industrial revolution in the 1800s, the development of the post-war technological industrialized Norway and the internationalization of Norwegian technology and expertise in the final decades until today.[mappress]Press Release, March 20, 2014; Image: Kongsberg View post tag: 200th View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today Norway: KONGSBERG Celebrates 200th Anniversary View post tag: celebrates View post tag: Naval KONGSBERG celebrates its 200th anniversary on 20 March.
