Ronald McDonald Haus, St. Augustin by GRAFT

The McDonald’s Children’s Aid runs 20 Ronald McDonald houses throughout Germany, like the recently opened house in Sankt Augustin, which provide a place of shelter for families while their children are being treated at nearby children’s hospitals. The futuristic building was designed by the GRAFT group of architects. The seemingly curved structural shell with its convincingly pleasant lightness nestles into its surroundings and has found its balance. The heart of the house is the open plan kitchen on the ground floor with a long table which invites guests to eat and talk together.

This is also where a »ramp« starts, off which further areas for communal use are to be found. The hallway with its three sweeping axes called for a precise coordination of lighting to the dynamic succession of rooms. For the basic lighting recessed and surface-mounted versions of Occhio’s Più spotlight series were chosen, the maximum mobility of which follows the different ceiling inclinations optimally and balances these excellently. To give the center of the family house a calming, familiar and private atmosphere LED lights in warm light colors and with best color rendering properties (a CRI of 95) were purposefully coordinated with the different zones. All rooms were equipped with Occhio luminaires and spotlights.

  1. Great weblog here! Also your web site rather a lot up fast!
    What web host are you the usage of? Can I get
    your affiliate link on your host? I wish my web site loaded up as fast as
    yours lol

  2. You made sure your credit was appropriate and then you began to search for the dream home.

    When you do so, you will be better off financially and increasing your credit score
    gives you a better chance to get a good interest rate
    when purchasing your first home. These tech advances have had the added affect of killing off newspaper readership as more and more of the population migrates to the Internet to get their “newspaper fix”.

  3. Thanks for your personal marvelous posting!
    Ι truly enjoyed reading іt, yⲟu happen to Ƅe a
    grеat author.І wilⅼ make ceгtain to bookmark yоur blog and will eventually

  4. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see
    if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!

  5. You made sure your credit was appropriate and then you began to search
    for the dream home. If you are unable to see the
    property a second or third time you still have
    ways of ensuring you’re not walking into a lemon. Vacancy decontrol laws regulate whether the landlord can raise rent, and if so, by how much.

  6. 持っている不動産を手放したいときは、分譲マンションの一括査定サイトを利用すると販売価格の相場が分かって便利です。このくらいの価格帯であれば売れるのではないか、という大体の相場がつかめます。と同時に、一括査定をすることによって不動産の販売に力を入れている不動産会社が分かりますので、そのなかから感じの良さそうな不動産屋さんを見つけます。なるべく高く売ってくれそうな仲介業者さんで、かつ話しやすいタイプの人が理想ですね。契約については、この不動産会社さんに任せよう!と決めたのであれば専任媒介でもいいですし、いくつかの業者さんに任せたいのであれば一般媒介でも良いでしょう。ただ、もちろん専任媒介契約にした方が不動産屋さんは張り切ります。
