The Caretaker’s House at Hooke Park is truly ground breaking. Invisible Studio were commissioned by the world’s preeminent architecture school – the Architectural Association – to develop a student concept design into a prototypical low cost timber exemplar building using only timber grown and felled on site, and in its green state. Save this picture!Courtesy of Invisible StudioThe building uses unseasoned larch/cedar/poplar/douglas fir/spruce as appropriate, uses wood for heating and also for insulation. It is (as far as we are aware) the world’s first green timber building insulated to passivehaus standards, with passivhaus airtightness. Save this picture!Courtesy of Invisible StudioThe construction process is super-efficient. There are no wet trades whatsoever – the mini piles are steel and the only non timber structural item. Save this picture!© Valerie BennettThe key move of the building is the ‘heavy’ north wall to provide privacy and insulation, and is very open to the south where there is a large inhabited verandah conceived of as an extension to the living space. The roof form is generated by, at one end, the need to gain maximum east sunlight penetration into the master bedroom, and at the other end, a living space with high natural surveillance over the campus. The bed and living spaces are separated by an open ‘dog trot’ allowing framed views out into the forest. Save this picture!© Valerie BennettEven the joinery was manufactured on site – the kitchen (which uses exposed copper piping for taps) has chunky timber work tops,  and the stairs uses an innovative dry jointed system that gains strength as the timber dries. The handrail uses mild steel bent piping, welded on site.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFrederick Kiesler Prize for Architecture and the Arts Winner: Andrea ZittelArticlesNew Institute Building for FOM / J.

Mata hoping for Mourinho return

first_imgSpanish playmaker Juan Mata would be thrilled to see Jose Mourinho return to Chelsea. The Portuguese boss will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and is widely expected to return to Stamford Bridge for a second spell as Chelsea boss. “Jose is one of the best,” World Cup and Euro 2012 winner Mata told reporters on Chelsea’s United States post-season tour. “He won everything in every country he was – in Portugal, in Italy, in Chelsea in London. We don’t know really what is going to happen but if he comes he is welcome because he is one of the best and Chelsea always want to be a top side.” Mata added: “If he comes we are going to be happy to have him.” Mourinho led Chelsea to two Barclays Premier League titles during his first spell in charge, from July 2004 to September 2007, including the Blues’ first championship in 50 years. Mata has won the Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League with Chelsea, but is keen to win the domestic title. Mata added: “If he comes we will try and do our best with him, or whoever, to win the title, because one challenge for me will be to win the Premier League.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
