Located in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, this 1300-square-foot townhouse was converted from a studio on the third floor to a triplex, combined with the adjoining duplex below.Save this picture!Courtesy of Frank OudemanIn the renovation of this 12-foot-wide townhouse, our guiding principle was to improve the quality of light and air flowing throughout, to create an expansive feeling in an otherwise small and narrow space. The primary architectural challenges were to find a way to open up the house to allow light to pass through from the sky to the ground level, to move up and down without cutting up the living quarters, and to eliminate the triplex feeling and to engage the cellar and undo the underground quality of its space. To do so, we needed to design a staircase that would introduce light midway in the structure and engage the living spaces it intersects.Save this picture!Courtesy of Frank OudemanThis triplex townhouse consists of a garden-level living room, a master bedroom suite on the third floor, and a kitchen and dining area on the entry level. In order to create the feeling of a connected space in a multi-level townhouse, we designed a new, open staircase system that eases the transition between movement and rest. Given the 12′ width of building, our solution was a series of steps that cantilever from the wall and float towards the center of the space, allowing light to filter through the risers. The entry level and cellar were cut back from both sides of the garden wall, allowing for a double-story space that meets at a midway point. This solution reduces the feeling of the cellar’s position underground, and also mediates the transition between the middle and lower levels.Save this picture!Sectional Axon RenderingAn angled skylight was added to the front portion of the third floor, which reveals a view of the trees hanging over the townhouse, frames the master bedroom suite from above, and also redirects and filters light down to the lower levels. Meeting with the natural light emanating from the all-glass facade in the rear, the townhouse also opens up into a garden, which connects nature and ‘stretches from earth to the sky,’ as written by Gaston Bachelard in The Poetics of Space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Frank OudemanProject gallerySee allShow lessThis Week in Architecture: Labors of Love, from the Hedonistic to the HomegrownArticles11 Brazilian UNESCO World Heritage Sites That Every Architect Must VisitArticles Share CopyHouses•New York, United States Projects “COPY” Connolly Engineering Architects: de-spec Area Area of this architecture project Year:  2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/898985/chelsea-triplex-de-spec Clipboard Save this picture!Courtesy of Frank Oudeman+ 22Curated by Fernanda Castro Share “COPY” Lead Architects: ArchDaily Farnaz Mansuri, Principal-Lead Designer United States Photographs:  Frank Oudeman Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officede-specOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew YorkUnited StatesPublished on August 31, 2018Cite: “Chelsea Triplex / de-spec” 31 Aug 2018.

National recognition for Novas research in Limerick

We hope this research will help to highlight the issue so that a consorted and pro-active response by government and the relevant agencies can be pursued,” he said.The Research, undertaken by Quality Matters and the Graduate Entry Medical School University of Limerick, found that almost three quarters of the people who had participated in the research had previously overdosed, most within the last year, and 93 per cent had witnessed an overdose, again most within the last year.“Benzodiazepines and heroin were the drugs most frequently used by those interviewed, with one-fifth of respondents injecting daily.“People are dying unnecessarily from overdoses in Limerick and all over Ireland,” said Anne Cronin, head of Homeless Services with Novas.“These deaths are preventable. This research helps us understand our residents’ experiences, and how our residents and staff can prevent overdose, and can best respond to it when it happens to stop it becoming fatal,” she added.McGarry House is a low-threshold facility providing temporary supported accommodation to 30 male and female residents. There was an overdose every two weeks, on average, at the facility in the 18 month period prior to the research project.
