On the Hembrug terrain in Zaandam, an area of 42,5 hectares, a monumental industrial site has been transformed by Studio Modijefsky into the home and studio of an artist couple.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinThe substantial volume of this building full of potential has been wisely divided into two levels, therefore allowing to accommodate different functions: an office and a workshop on the ground floor, a gallery space and a home on the first floor. The two floors are connected by two sculptural staircases, one of which leads to the home through the kitchen, the other one brings visitors from the workshop to the gallery space.Save this picture!PlanThe ground level has been designed so that all the functions in the workshop are implemented. This floor can operate by itself serving all the needs for the daily production and activities.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinAs you go up the main staircase and cross the threshold, Ketelhuis (translated as ‘boiler house’) comes across as open to visitors. Immediately as you enter, the interior appears sober and welcoming, being it defined by three main finishes: white painted materials, oak wood, and brass. The completely white walls subtly reveal the structural grid, enhanced through a play of reliefs which become traces of the function, a celebration of the building.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinStanding in front of you, closer to the entrance accessible through the second staircase, a big gallery space has been minimally designed to accommodate different kinds of moments and events, leaving space for imagination. White industrial beams overlook the haring bone wooden floor, two simple elements in harmonic balance with each other. Three holes in the ceiling, previously accommodating as many chimneys, are now replaced with glass portholes, turning the openings into skylights.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinDuring shows and presentations, this grand gallery space is served by the totally customized and unconventional open kitchen which is part of the house. A central piece, the island, has been carefully designed and crafted entirely in brass, completely filled with cabinets on each of the four sides, and covered by a beautiful stainless-steel top. Two ‘specials’ complement the elegant design: custom made bronze handles and pull-out wooden shelves. The back of the kitchen is a system of open white shelves leaning on the transparent glass box of the main entrance. A big oak table and a set of vintage chairs are surmounted by an art piece: a self-built kayak converted in a warm light object hanging upside-down above the whole length of the table.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinA big opening through the wall invites you to discover a much more intimate and embracing space, the actual living room, which is characterized by a series of wooden objects and vintage furniture pieces that give the space a deep feeling of warmth. Here a comfortable sofa is facing a wood-burning stove.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinGoing through the hallway, a few sliding doors to the guest room, walk-in closet, bathroom and toilets, camouflage with the walls. At the end of it the ceiling almost doubles in height and a the master bedroom discloses. The spacious room and the natural light favour the presence of different plant species, which create an enchanted atmosphere. The height of the ceiling allows for a mezzanine to overlook the room and the view. The steps leading to this ‘room-in-the-room’ hide a wooden closet serving the space, refined by a simple yet detailed white metal railing. Following it, a balcony-like space hosts a free-standing bathtub with a ceiling window which allows for stargazing while taking a bath, being surrounded by numerous plants visually connecting the two levels. The crazy layout of this room derives from a mix of choices reflecting the extravagant personalities of the owners.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinOn the north walls of the bedroom, bathroom and living room, the original windows left without function due to the annexation of a new building, are now used as lightboxes which diffuse warm light into the rooms. The white herringbone floor tiles of toilets and bathroom complement the oak wood and white marble of the cabinets, while high mirrors above the sinks enhance the ceiling height. Bronze light fixtures, designed and crafted by the client’s atelier, can be found throughout the space as small pleasant surprises.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinA system of minimalistic white shutters allows to modify the original openness of the industrial building, making it into a liveable space and allowing the inhabitants to regulate the amount of desired light throughout the day in all the areas of the house.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinKetelhuis is a place where every single area has been designed to complement the original building, yet to enhance the designated use of each one of the rooms.Save this picture!© Maarten WillemsteinProject gallerySee allShow lessInflexion Memorial Park / Pequeña Escala Arquitectura + Taller Alterno + Ámbito TallerSelected ProjectsThe Export Building at Republic / Studio RHESelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Ageism: the same old story

first_img Comments are closed. Despite the Government’s code of practice, ageism is still all too obvious in the workplace and calls for legislative force are growing louder. Dominique Hammond reportsLast summer the Government published a code of practice to encourage employers to take a stand against ageism in the workplace. One year on, a review of that voluntary code shows that ageism is still alive and well.In fact, most employers do not even know the code exists, and of the less than three in 10 who have heard of it, less than a quarter have seen a copy.The findings of the Evaluation of the Code of Practice on Age Diversity in Employment, the DfEE’s second review of the code’s impact, published in June, have led to a growing call from groups such as Age Concern to legislate against ageism. They argue that awareness raising and spreading good practice have their place, but without legal force little will change. Others argue that the Government needs to make a more concerted effort to publicise the code. The Employer’s Forum on Age – a network of 168 employers from the private and public sector – says the findings are evidence of the woeful lack of muscle being flexed.“After a year nobody has heard of the code,” says Ruth Jarratt, development director at EFA. “We have badgered the Government to publicise it. There has been some publicity but you couldn’t really call it a concerted campaign. There has been no consistent lobbying or real work with employers’ groups. Soap powder“Their spokespeople need to be out there talking to key employers. We also need some research to back the business case with figures. Maybe you can sell soap powder with billboard adverts but you need a bit more to bring about this kind of change.”Equal opportunities minister Margaret Hodge says there has been change but it is too early to tell whether it is happening fast enough. As far as the evaluation goes, she says it should not be taken too seriously as the publicity campaign only got off the ground at the beginning of this year, less than six months before the review.She points to forthcoming campaigns, including mailshots to recruitment consultants, adverts and articles in regional newspapers, and the sponsoring of awards such as the Personnel Today age diversity award, as examples of the on-going drive to raise awareness of the issue among employers. The rolling-out nationally of the New Deal for the over-50s is another catalyst for change, she says.As reported in Personnel Today last week, the DfEE is to give employers until October 2001 to get the message. By then the Government will have a better idea of whether the voluntary route is working, says Hodge. If it is not it will consider legislation, but this is not a route Hodge favours. “Those countries that have legislation, such as Spain, actually have a worse record on diversity than those in countries that don’t like Sweden and Denmark,” she says.“What we need is a culture change. Although I accept that a framework of rights can support this, I don’t believe that legislation alone transforms cultures.”Hodge argues that laws force people to pay lip service without making any real steps forward.“The last thing we want is for people to get an interview because it is illegal to discriminate against them for their age in the recruitment process, then once they get through the door they are rejected on some other pretext,” she says.“If legislation worked we wouldn’t have racism. But we are still in a position where a young black man is three times more likely to be out of work.”Hodge adds that employers are unlikely to welcome any more legislation, but they seem to be split on this issue. The CBI opposes legislation, which it says will be unworkable and will leave employers open to widespread litigation. Local government personnel group Socpo supports it on the grounds that the only way HR can get line managers to change their behaviour is by telling them they are breaking the law. The Employer’s Forum on Age found equal support for and against in a members survey.“If you talk to the chief executives you tend to get more against legislation on the grounds that employers don’t like red tape,” says Ruth Jarratt, EFA development director.“But many of the people we talk to are diversity champions so they have a different view.Convincing arguments“Our members have come together because they can see the business case in their own organisations. They want to network to pick up tips on how to get the best out of diversity. These organisations have convincing arguments in favour of diversity for the sake of business. What we would like to see is enough change so that legislation wouldn’t be necessary.”According to the CBI – which helped draft the code – it is up to business to make it work. Concerned that it has not been getting enough exposure, six weeks ago it wrote to the chief executives of its 1,000 largest members urging them to champion the code in their businesses. Trade association members such as the Engineering Employers Federation are being asked to promote it too.Dominic Johnson, head of employee relations, says the response has been positive and 100 companies have already written back to say what they are doing about tackling ageism.This is just the kind of action within the business community that Hodge wants to see. She says that business talking to business is “much more powerful than the Government preaching about the advantages of age diversity”. Hodge believes that attitudes are already changing and that employers can make the transition without the need for legislation. Figures from the last few months show that unemployment is dropping faster among the over-fifties than other age groups – evidence, she says, that the message is at last getting across.“By the time we carry out the next review of the code I am confident that we will see a big shift,” she says.Whether the momentum is there or not remains to be seen. What is certain is that if employers do not want legislation, the time to act is now.• The code is available free from DfEE publications.
