Hotel D-Resort Šibenik designed by architect Nikola Bašić (architecture) and architect Marko Murtić (interior) has been nominated for the prestigious award “The International Hotel and property award” which selects the best design solutions of world famous hotels. D ‐ Resort Mandalina Šibenik is among the 7 finalists for the award at the world level and among the 4 in Europe, in the category of hotels with less than 200 rooms.The International Hotel and property award is an award from The Design Awards, the UK’s leading design magazine, which features open voting for design professionals but also for all readers, clients and users. From “The Design awards”, they say how they areaim to provide design reviews, talent recognition and opportunity creation. They are looking for places that inspire the senses in terms of design, and the main awards ceremony will take place on Friday, 16.09. at the Cipriani Hotel in Venice.The interior of the D ‐ Resort Mandaline is a rare example of the integration of architecture and interior, which has resulted in one perfectly integrated project. The main concept was the creation of its own, modern vision of Mediterranean architecture, completely redesigned and devoid of globalization, as well as globaltrends in the hotel industry. We have created our own vision of Mediterranean architecture with a sense of heritage that dominates the views of the city of Šibenik. White cement shaped in wooden molds was used as the basic material in the construction, which also served as a sculptural element in the exterior and interior. The design elements in the interior are made of raw cut oak whose texture, warmth and color are a well thought out contrast to the concrete walls. Sculptures, ceramic walls and art canvases further emphasize to visitors the feeling of being in a truly special place. Art is an integral part of the D-Resort, and this is recognized internationally.In EMUR STUDIO for this project, furniture, lighting fixtures and carpets were designed, designed and manufactured under the common name STUFF – a brand that emphasizes the uniqueness of D-Resort. “STUFF is a superior design brand designed to equip modern tourism and institutional interiors, but also private housing. I would like to mention that STUFF is a modern, but above all functional design of wide application made of very high quality materials. Our furniture has been used to decorate the interior of the D ‐ Resort Mandalina hotel in Šibenik, and for the needs of the hotel we have designed and produced more than 30 pieces of furniture.”, Said Marko Murtić, a famous Croatian architect and interior designer, who finalized the interior with the help of fellow architect Ana Aščić. The nomination as part of “The International Hotel and property award” and the entry into the company of the world’s best hotels is a confirmation of an excellent project that has been very popular among domestic and old tourists since its opening last summer.
Obiter hears that skills minister Matthew Hancock rather put his foot in it at last week’s launch of the higher apprenticeship in legal services. The minister waxed lyrical about new possibilities for non-graduate entry into the legal profession, while seemingly unaware of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and its route to becoming a solicitor. CILEx chief executive Diane Burleigh (pictured) was seen to bristle. However, she didn’t have long to wait to put the record straight. At a Westminster event on apprenticeships hosted by Supreme Court president Lord Neuberger, Burleigh welcomed the opportunity to speak as it had become clear ‘some people did not know’ what the estimable CILEx has to offer.
RUSSIA: GATX Rail Vostok has taken delivery of 26 molasses wagons of a new design developed by United Wagon Co.UWC said the Type 15-6900-04 developed by its All-Union Research & Development Centre for Transportation Technology and manufactured at its TikhvinChemMash site was the only 1 520 mm gauge wagon of its type to offer a stainless steel tank and 25 tonne axleload bogies.The tank is designed with a bent axis to facilitate unloading, and there is an external steam jacket. The interior has undergone mechanical and chemical treatments to meet the strict requirements of the food sector, including a process which creates a protective microfilm. The wagons have a capacity of 56 m3 or 74·4 tonnes, 7 to 10 tonnes higher than older designs, and also offer increased maintenance intervals.UWC said the production of molasses in Russia has grown by more than 40% in the past five years to 571 000 tonnes, but most goes by road with the volume transported by rail having grown by just 25% to 175 000 tonnes. It said existing wagons were ageing and unfit for purpose, with many having conventional steel tanks and 60% of the wagons suitable for transporting molasses currently being used to transport liquid fertiliser.
