Lingotto building in Via Nizza (Italy) – here once produced cars Fiat. When the car was ready, they were tested on the roof of the factory. It was opened in 1923 and closed in 1982. More photos here: http://www.areavis.com/m/humor/view/Tor-wyscigowy-na-dachu-fabryki-Fiata-z-1923-roku
Temperature layering inside a building with removable and swinging walls . It was next to impossible to be comfortable sitting at this desk in a stone building at 7,000 feet before this office was installed……….Lowered ceiling just like Frank Lloyd Wright would like and approve of. A sitting space that offers comfort when we can’t afford to heat the entire space. The earth is more comfortable, my personal economy more comfortable. Win Win architectural remodel. In the words of Frank Lloyd Wright, Fashion and Function are one.
The average winter temperature of this stone building was probably raised 40 degrees by removing the metal roof that reflected light and letting sunlight shine into a partially open basement. Our mindset with the fossil fuel era was insulate and air-tight. This building modification gives great insight into affordable architecture remodels in a post fossil fuel era.
At 7,000 feet no less. I live in one of the coldest buildings on the western slope of Colorado. This stone wall was partially disassembled because it was falling down so thought it better to take it down controlled. The original shed roof was metal and also converted to Palram plastic. Green houses have never been so affordable.
Converting a shed roof to a solar room is now affordable and can have application for a sustainable world ………. since fossil fuels are no longer what they were quacked up to be.
Astarte Suites is a spectacular 11-room complex designed by Aygoustis Krousis and located on a cliff on the beautiful Santorini Island in Greece. Small, but with impeccable services, infinity pool, and unforgettable views, the hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway. Here is an excerpt from the official description from the architects:
“Magic is in the details at Astarte Suites, beginning with the twinkling Swarovski stones that adorn the ceiling above each suite’s Jacuzzi pool, ending with the personalized service each guest enjoys. Surrounded by soothing shades of white and stone, guests are sure to find bliss here. During their precious down time, guests can relax and unwind next to Astarte’s stunning turquoise infinity swimming pool, which overlooks the Aegean Sea’s tranquil blue waters and nearby rocky cliffs. Leisure and cultural options abound nearby, such as in Akrotiri, an ancient city buried and preserved by volcanic ash-known as the Pompeii of the Greek islands-and at Red Beach and White Beach, the ultimate locales for a spectacular day of fun in the sun”.
