There really is no substitute for it.
you could always print off one of these threads 😉November 3, 2005 at 3:18 pm in reply to: How is Ground Level determined? #762833
if the extension is to the rear, then ground level is the level of the ground on which the extension is being built. in this case that wouyld be basement level. it is a two-storey extension, regardless of the level of the front of the house. by saying “anything over ground level”, they mean ground level to the rear.
when did archiseek become central station for advice for people trying to subvert planning regulations?October 30, 2005 at 10:13 pm in reply to: Validated Application re: Unauthorised Development with Enforcement Notice #762790
do you mean they invalidated the first two applications or they refused to grant permission?
if they were invalid and returned as incomplete, they don’t count as applications, and as such have no bearing on future applications. the third application being validated just means a proper application was submitted.
if you mean the first two applications were refused permission, and the third one was granted, then i’m afraid you have very little recourse unless you make an appeal to an bord pleanala, which can be expensive, time consuming, and very damaging to neighbourly relations/October 27, 2005 at 5:16 pm in reply to: Fit Out Advice in Limerick City #762729
…..my decision to locate in Limerick was partly based on useful information from posters on this site.
that’s a bit silly, no?October 20, 2005 at 12:00 pm in reply to: developments in cork #758298
As the European City of Culture year is nearly over for Cork, would Corkonians say that it was an overall success ?
What achitectural jewels have sprung up adding to the cities acrhitecture.
Do Corkonians feel fully urbanely urbanized now in a European sense?
as a man in exile i only saw a couple of benefits in terms of architecture. the libeskind/arup pavilion in fota was a delightful addition. the works to oliver plunkett street and patrick street look great, good to see them completed in time(ish) to give a good impression of cork’s main thoroughfares.
anyone who is disappointed by the whole affair, i’d love to know what you were expecting or hoping for, and what you think might have been done differently.October 5, 2005 at 2:40 pm in reply to: Stack Bond #762231
a few new apartment buildings on north king street use stack bonds under windows, often with yellow brick used for the stack to differentiate from the overall red brick scheme, or vice versa. looks awful.October 3, 2005 at 1:51 pm in reply to: developments in cork #758208
I wouldn’t call them ugly at all, .
the other views look alright, but this elevation is horribly disproportionate. the townhouses on the roebuck development are dealt with much better.September 27, 2005 at 10:33 pm in reply to: Objecting to a Dirt Racing/Quad Bike Track #761988
Any possible approaches Iâ€™m missing?
first problem with the application is that they’re asking for permission for future works which have already been done (so you seem to suggest). this should be an application for retention permission, for works already carried out, and an existing unauthorised use of of land which requires retention permission to continue.
as i said in your original thread, i’d imagine this isn’t a legally operated or insured venture, but unfortunately, it’s unlikely anything would be done about it until somebody breaks their neck and a legal issue rears its head.
be sure and include the full timescale of when works were carried out, when the change of use took place, the improper basis for the application given it isn’t for retention, as well as the points regards it’s poor contextual presence, and what you (and your neighbours) feel is inappropriate for the area.September 13, 2005 at 10:54 pm in reply to: Copper Building #761565
it’s a clear sign of the standard of that “newspaper” that there is no mention of the designer, and no quote from anyone who might have a clue about design, given that that is the topic covered. good auld christine. i’m surprised we don’t hear more from her in architectural publications around the world.September 12, 2005 at 11:31 pm in reply to: Jobs in Dublin #761556
i’m not saying anything, except that it would be foolish to slander a firm on this forum, and that you couldn’t take opinions proferred here as fair and balanced.September 12, 2005 at 11:05 pm in reply to: Jobs in Dublin #761554
nobody is going to publicly denounce any of those firms.August 30, 2005 at 11:24 pm in reply to: Planning permission in Fingal-what docs do I need? #760556

are you building a 2 storey extension?August 30, 2005 at 10:37 pm in reply to: Planning permission in Fingal-what docs do I need? #760552
if it’s under 40 square metres and to the rear of your house you won’t need planning.

i make it 45 metres to the shoulder of the front section closest the river. 55 at the highest point on the back section. i’ll dig up some survey drawings if you want.could take a while.
and it’s 5,116.
73!!!!!!!!!!!August 24, 2005 at 10:43 pm in reply to: One Off Lighting Poles #760449
Iâ€™m at present designing a one off light fitting on top of a pole for a job, it relies mainly on light been bounced off a designed metal plate and the reflective light illuminating the ground below. Much like what has been used in Smithfeild and the Bray seafront. The only problem is I have no experience on how to go about getting these made up and modelled to see what illumination curves I can expect, and hence work out how many I need. Would anyone have done this in the past and have any advice? Or would anyone no any good lighting suppliers who are experienced in one off designs to suit?
sounds like you’re not in any way qualified to do what it is you’re supposed to be doing. surely there are some off the shelf systems you could use to light the space? the cost of prototyping and specifying the thing will be ridiculous compared to what will be gained.
if i was you i’d just knock up a miniature version and test it in a dark room. but if i was you and i was clever, i’d get a designer of lights to design my light.
