Latest Issue : August 2016


The August 2016 edition of ADF includes all our regular ‘product round-up’ sections and will take a more detailed look at:

  • Groundworks: Rainwater Harvesting
    Storm-proof rainwater harvesting
    Combining rainwater harvesting with Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) can provide architects with an efficient, space-saving water management solution fit for the future. Kevin Reed of Graf UK explains how this can be achieved.
  • External Envelope: Roof Glazing & Rooflights
    Keeping on top of security risks
    Security is always a hot topic, but with new tighter Building Regulations for windows it is at the top of the agenda for architects looking to specify rooflights as well as manufacturers. ADF reports.
  • Interiors: Lighting & Electrical
    Shedding light on innovation
    Simon Shenton from lighting supplier Luceco describes how LED technology has permanently disrupted what was a stagnant market offering prescribed solutions for each sector, to provide the dominant solution for the future.

This issue also features two in-depth case studies:

  • Round midnight
    Michael Willoughby ventures into Soho House’s new eatery to discover how its in-house design team worked against the clock to turn a former dance club into a cosy Art Deco retreat with a Jazz Age feel.

This issue also includes a show preview for 100% Design as well as our annual Bathrooms, washrooms, kitchens & catering equipment supplement.
