Abdel and Marijke have just retired. They lived in a large house, built in the 1980s. Their three children had just left the house, and their house had grown too large and defects in the house were gradually emerging. Instead of patching up their home, they made a more radical but conscious choice: they decided to sell their home and look for a home tailored to their new lifestyle: compact, completely renewed and with a manageable garden.Save this picture!© Atelier Vens VanbelleDuring their search, they came across a bungalow from the 60s, which was in a bad condition. A thorough renovation was needed, but this was precisely where the potential was to fully commemorate the bungalow in function of their way of life. The bungalow had a number of advantages: everything is on the ground floor, and around it was a 5-meter wide garden.Save this picture!Plan newThe front garden and the side garden strip on the north were arranged in function of privacy and accessibility. Here are the driveway, carport, garden shed and access to the property. The ‘quiet’ spaces were provided at the front: the bedroom, two guest rooms and bathroom, while the living spaces are located at the rear. Central to the building volume the entrance and a covered terrace were inserted. These simultaneously form the separation and connection between these two zones.Save this picture!© Atelier Vens VanbelleBecause the pensioners are often at home, the house was given a holiday feeling. The tranquility, the materials and the light ensure that the house is quiet and pleasant. The red color of the house is a reference to the red earth color that is found in Morocco, the home country of Abdel. The fine white steel structure gives the house a quirky and calm character, and masks the old façade articulation.Save this picture!© Atelier Vens VanbelleThe house gives shape to a contemporary phenomenon: how do you deal with aging, and how can the architecture adjust and offer a different range of qualities?Save this picture!© Atelier Vens VanbelleProject gallerySee allShow lessCosta Brava House / Roman Izquierdo BouldstridgeSelected ProjectsThe Versatility of Gabion Walls, From Infrastructure to Urban FurnitureArticles Share Abdel & Marijke / Atelier Vens VanbelleSave this projectSaveAbdel & Marijke / Atelier Vens Vanbelle Architects: Atelier Vens Vanbelle Area Area of this architecture project Projects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928073/abdel-and-marijke-atelier-vens-vanbelle Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928073/abdel-and-marijke-atelier-vens-vanbelle Clipboard Year:  “COPY” ArchDaily Houses Abdel & Marijke / Atelier Vens Vanbelle Belgium 2018 CopyHouses, Renovation•Koksijde, Belgium CopyAbout this officeAtelier Vens VanbelleOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationKoksijdeOn FacebookBelgiumPublished on November 11, 2019Cite: “Abdel & Marijke / Atelier Vens Vanbelle” 11 Nov 2019.

She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. Vicky PhelanPhotographer – Paul Sherwood [email protected] LIMERICK woman who exposed the CervicalCheck scandal says that new laws are needed to enshrine management-level accountability in the public service.Vicky Phelan was speaking at the launch this week of a new support group set up with Lorraine Walsh and Stephen Teap, named 221+ after the number of women who have been affected by false-negative smears and withheld information.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The three were on hand for the launch of the new group at Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park, Dublin.Ms Phelan said she did not want to see a commission of investigation “as it would drag on for years and no-one would be accountable in the end. “We’re living in a country where people can get away with things at a management level and not be held accountable,” said Ms Phelan, who exposed the issue by refusing to sign a confidentiality agreement on getting a court settlement against the US laboratory which read the failed smear tests.“Until we start fighting and jumping up and down to try to get it, we’re not going to get accountability. We can’t sack people in this country.”The mother-of-two said that if the campaign she started helps other victims, that gives her a sense of purpose.She also paid tribute to her fellow campaigners. “There isn’t a chance in hell that I would be standing here without Stephan Teap and the other women and families who have been affected by this”, she said.  221+ will offer an opportunity for those affected by the scandal to support each other as well as advocate for change in the health service. “One of the things I will be looking at is legislation for accountability, not just in the health sector but across the public sector and the civil service because we just don’t have it in this country,” she said.Meanwhile, the proposed establishment of a private tribunal to deal with claims arising from the CervicalCheck scandal received a cautious welcome from the 221+ group although it was disappointed Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s commitment to a “totally non-adversarial” process was not followed through.The tribunal, similar to court proceedings but held behind closed doors, was proposed by Judge Charles Meenan in a Government-commissioned report.Ms Phelan urged Health Minister Simon Harris to provide assurances on how the adversarial nature of such a process can be minimised.”Her solicitor Cian O’Carroll, who is also representing several other of the women affected by the scandal, said it added to the choice of options open to his clients.“The problem is the tribunal is in private and it shields the State and labs from the public knowing about negligent errors. Women must also prove their case in an adversarial system,” he said. Limerick on Covid watch list Advertisement Local backlash over Aer Lingus threatlast_img read more
