The main aim of architects was to build a house, which form and detailing derives from the traditional regional architecture, so that the house could become an integrated part of the surroundings. At the same time the client required high standards on modern housing and recreation. The prototype of the architectural design was inspired by a vernacular house of the north Slovakia, typical in remote settlements of that region. The large building program was divided into three identical volumes, two of which stand on a stone plinth. Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslSave this picture!© Tomáš RaslThe stone plinth defines the protected private (exterior) zone and levels the relatively steep slope around the house. The houses are placed close to each other to create interspaces which, in the contrary to the open landscape, can offer safety and privacy. The use of traditional building materials – wood, stone, ceramic tiles- continues in forgotten historical context. Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslBuilding construction and technology – the construction is mainly brick masonry with some parts made of concrete blocks. The building is based on reinforced concrete footings. Floor construction consists of joists with clay panels in between. Roof made of wooden trusses and is covered with ceramic tiles. External walls are finished with spruce cladding, painted in grey. The bottom plinth is clad with local natural sandstone. The building is heated by underground source heat pump. Interior finishes include oak floors, polished concrete floors and spruce ceilings. Built-in furniture is made of scrubbed spruce.

A wheelchair van to get around in just won’t cut it for some with much more active lifestyles.MobilityWorks understands this. Which is why it offers unique alternatives for those who don’t care too much for the regular wheelchair van.For PWDs who want to forego the mini-van and use the baddest SUVs around for their adventuring, MobilityWorks offers the Mobility SVM and the TMN Robot to fit the vehicles of its customer’s choice.The SVM or Speedy Lift is a special add-on where customers just back an empty wheelchair up the lift, and with the push on the IN button, the Speedy Lift picks the chai up and secures it in place. This is perfect for those who don’t want to waste time lugging and folding their wheelchairs onto a vehicle.The TMN Robot, on the other hand, is an automated wheelchair storage system for autos, vans and SUVs. This is suited for PWDs who are capable of driving and transferring from their wheelchairs to the driver seat themselves. How it works is, once the driver has transferred seats, the arm takes the chair, and stores it at the rear of the vehicle on its own. Perfect for those who want to travel alone.Finally, there is the Conquest Trike, a unique motorbike that gives wheelchair users the open air freedom of riding a bike on their own. The Conquest is derived from a BMW 110 CC engine modified to let wheelchair users ride on their own, or with a companion. The Conquest is large enough to fit a wheelchair and an extra passenger as well for those who wish to bring along some company.Many feel that becoming a PWD will limit their freedom, and fear that their former lifestyles would be but a shade in the shadow of their unfortunate situation. However, with MobilityWorks’ products, those fears are assuaged and hope for individuality and freedom is restored.For more information about MobilityWorks and its products, visit http://www.mobilityworks.com or drop by the Pasadena branch at 325 N.

Shadow minister to discuss HE funding with University

first_imgUniversity officials are set to meet with the Labour MP Liam Byrne, who is Shadow Minister for Universities, Science and Skills, to discuss “the current challenges of HE funding”. Attendees at the meeting will include Byrne, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, the Registrar and the Director of Communications and Public Affairs. Items of discussion that have been suggested for consideration at the meeting include variable fees, postgraduate support and research funding.The OUSU VP for Access & Academic Affairs Rachel Pickering received an email about the meeting on Thursday 29th May. Pickering received the email, as part of an itinerary for the day of the meeting in question, as she is due to discuss Oxford’s access and support packages with the University  after the meeting between the Shadow Minister and University officials.The meeting follows comments by the Vice-Chancellor, in Michaelmas Term 2013, that raised the prospect that tuition fees could be raised £16,000 per undergraduate every year. In response, over 20 JCRs and OUSU Council passed motions condemning the speech by the Vice-Chancellor.OUSU President Tom Rutland commented, “It is unacceptable for the University to be secretly lobbying the Shadow Minister for Higher Education to introduce variable fees at an undergraduate level. Make no mistake: variable fees would mean an increase in the fees students will pay, and potentially a total lifting of the cap on fees that was raised just a few years ago.”Pickering commented, “I was deeply angered yesterday to receive a communication, which cited a ‘takeaway message’ of ‘variable fees’ for Liam Byrne, the Shadow Minister for Higher Education on his visit to Oxford next week. I stand with the University that the Government should ‘invest in education at all levels’, but this should be through increased public funding of the Higher Education sector.”Xavier Cohen, who is a member of the Oxford Activist Network, responded to the news by commenting, “This is a blatant act of unilateral lobbying from the unelected leader of our University to further marketise education. The problem Andrew Hamilton faces is one of funding, but to choose to secretively push for a market solution that will increasingly discourage less well-off students from applying to our university rather than publicly call for greater government funding is a betrayal of even the most basic conceptions of justice and democracy. “I urge students who care about education to take the initiative to bring motions to their common rooms condemning Andrew Hamilton’s actions in the strongest possible terms.”A University spokesperson commented, “Oxford University is not lobbying on behalf of variable fees or any other system of tuition funding.“University representatives intend to use next week’s planned meeting to discuss a wide range of higher education issues with Mr Byrne, including student funding. They will repeat the point, which the University has made many times in the past, that there is a wide gap between the current tuition fees limit and the true cost of many undergraduate degrees. In Oxford’s case this true cost is at least £16,000 per undergraduate per year. The University is not lobbying for any particular solution to this problem. It will, of course, be discussing with Mr Byrne options that have been already been aired, including variable fees. More important to the University however, is that that all political parties should be fully aware of the funding gap when they come to formulate their higher education policies.“last_img read more
