Really small - kit contains all the cables you'd need to charge and play. Seems to have a long life between charges, good sound out of connected equipment and will replace the battery powered device I have on the boat next Spring.
Wow, really small in size, quite big in sound! Not as punchy as BOSE but good none-the-less, with reasonable bass. Much better than through iPhone speaker alone, great voice quality for listening to BBC iPlayer in the bath, for instance...
Brilliant - not fussy flashy colours, just nice warm white lights on a ten metre copper wire, waterproof and robust looking, all with a remote control! About to adorn the edge of my new deck, lighting the grasses (yet to be planted), more later
Excellent - well made and packaged, both worked straight out of the box, sturdy spike for positioning or screws to wall mount. Lighting my garden right now!
Oslo studio Lund Hagem has completed a holiday cabin on a Norwegian ski resort, featuring a blackened timber and concrete elevations that hunker down to protect it from the winter weather. The property is located in the Geilo resort, 982 metres above sea level, on a site that provides its owners with a panoramic view of the Geilo valley.
Its high altitude means the cabin is exposed to severe winter weather and heavy snowfall, so during part of the year it is only accessible using skis or a snowmobile.
Fortunately, Lund Hagem is accustomed to creating homes in extreme locations, having previously completed a stilted summer house on the edge of a rocky island, and a small holiday home wedged up against the side of a cliff.
The Geilo Cabin comprises a main dwelling with a guest house and carport, which are connected by a continuous gabled roof and arranged in a U-shaped plan around a sheltered courtyard. "This south-facing courtyard allows the low winter sun to enter during the day," said the architects. "The outer geometry is formed by the important views and the adaption to the landscape." The low-lying structure is partly embedded in the side of the hill to protect it from the weather. During winter it is almost entirely covered by snow.
This is stuff I like, old and new, that I hope you do too.
