The design response was to place a lightweight metal clad structure onto the roof of the existing “art deco” building. This white pristine metallic cladding with its irregular jointing patterns make for a strong visual contrast to the rendered masonry building below. As a formal gesture, the project is an exercise of clear delineation between the contemporary new structure and the old building.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanGenerous light filled open living spaces flow onto expansive external entertaining areas with a full view of the beach and the sweep of Bondi Bay. Fire regulations restricted the amount of glazing allowed which meant a clever use of skylights, fire windows, low level glass louvres and full height glazing in central areas, ensuring filtered light throughout. External and internal lines are blurred due to the white metallic cladding with its intricate random patterning flowing into the interior wall and ceiling. Other devices such as an external horizontal blade are employed to form a daybed and create a continuous floating joinery element.Materials & Detailing Intent:Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanA palette of light textured materials including wide lime washed timber floor boards, white and silver Alucobond cladding, limestone and Calacutta marble were used to create a bright and airy interior. White Alucobond cladding lines the central corridor and is offset by a colorful photographic image of the sunset by a local photographer complimented by the water feature which flows below. Joints are expressed and are used in the ceiling to integrate the LED light fittings.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanA central island Calacutta marble bench top formed the centre piece of the kitchen which is otherwise understated in white with stainless steel bench top and splash backs. Materials are consistently generous with the use of monolithic limestone slabs in the bathrooms limiting the number of joints and wide timber boards are used for the interior and exterior living spaces.Project gallerySee allShow less’Elemental Recent Projects: Monoliths and Trees’ Lecture by Alejandro Aravena at MITArticlesMud Structure / Architecture for Humanity Tehran – Rai StudioArticlesProject locationAddress:Bondi, New South Wales, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The project was built using metal, wood and glass, and the new modules, like the original cabin, have an external platform that exceeds the internal dimensions in order to pay tribute to the environment and encourage its inhabitants to carry out their main activities in the external area of the house. The platforms are linked to each other on the outside, so that the whole project can be traversed in a cyclical way, entering and leaving from different points and allowing the inhabitants to flow into the space in a spontaneous way.Save this picture!© Andrés AsturiasProject gallerySee allShow lessEileen Gray, Le Corbusier, and the E-1027 House: A Tale of Architecture and ScandalArticles11 New York Architectural Icons Misplaced by Anton ReponnenArticles Share Manufacturers: Aluver, Scavolini, Cementos Progreso, GIBOR, INEGSA, PTSStructural Design:INEGSAConstruction:CONARQElectric Design:PTSHydraulic Design:CONARQAuthor Architect:Alejandro PazCountry:GuatemalaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Andrés AsturiasRecommended ProductsDoorspanoramah!®ah!

La Cabañita seeks to integrate into the natural environment of a wooded area on the outskirts of Guatemala City by questioning the idea of the proportion of spaces and trying to erase the edges between interior and exterior in a particular way. The original project was built in 1985, and consisted of a small cabin that had a cantilevered platform of large proportions. The original cabin is built by a triangular metal frame whose joist structure allowed the platform to fly over the slopes of the mountain. The cabin had only a small social area, a kitchen, and in the upper part a small bedroom.Save this picture!© Andrés AsturiasSave this picture!Axonometric Diagram 3Save this picture!© Andrés Asturias30 years after it was built, the owners requested an extension in order to obtain more formal spaces with proportions according to their contemporary lifestyle. The forest around the original cabin grew, and the vegetation occupied an important space around the whole project. The design strategy consisted in respecting the original cabin, since the sense of space, risk and permanence of its architectural configuration was valued. In view of the need for a social area and a single bedroom, two independent modules were generated on each side of the original cabin.Save this picture!© Andrés AsturiasSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Andrés AsturiasAn interstice was left between each of them, and the position in the floor was adjusted to the topography of the land, therefore, the 3 modules are not completely parallel to each other. The way to unify them was done through a totally transparent corridor in their two faces, to emphasize the union that exists with the forest, and to be able to contemplate the architecture of each one of the modules of different points of view during the circulation routes of home. The roofs of the two new modules were made using the same angle as the original cabin, but in the opposite direction, respecting the angle of the original cabin in one direction, and the two modules obtaining a new identity inspired by the pre-existing architectural object.

The Hanging House was named because it is elevated from the natural ground level of the site where it was located. This is because the house is surrounded by native trees, so the windows are level with the treetops and the balconies blend in with the branches. In addition, the soil remains original, preserving the drainage and root dynamics, which were not harmed because the minimum of concrete was used in the foundations. The project’s premise was a country house that integrated with the local ecosystem, with sustainability and recyclability. For this reason, the construction system with recycled maritime containers was adopted. In total 80% of the materials are recycled. Internally the demolition wood predominates in the walls and ceiling. Green roof with rainwater reuse, thermal and acoustic insulation are also the highlights of the house.Save this picture!© Celso MellaniSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Celso MellaniThe purpose of occupation of the property is as a country house. Internally, we favored the common areas of the house, living spaces, leisure and balconies. In total there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house has no television or wifi system. To inhabit it the rule is to disconnect and enjoy what nature and family life provide. Two wooden deck balconies provide interaction with native trees and fantastic views of the rural area of Campos Novos Paulista – Brazil.Save this picture!© Celso MellaniSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Celso MellaniThe implantation of the building under the trees provides shading all day long, in addition the local winds combined with the wall insulation system provide excellent thermal comfort inside the residence.Save this picture!© Celso MellaniMetal pillars make the support of the house. The “v” system provides concrete savings and foundation area by generating a single base for two supports. The foundations are shallow because the weight of the house is relatively light and the ground is firm.Save this picture!© Celso MellaniThe green roof is of the modular type, which facilitates maintenance. It has a rainwater storage system to minimize the need for irrigation. This system provides greater thermal comfort inside the house, and further integrates the house with nature.Save this picture!© Celso MellaniThe internal divisions are in demolition wood. Besides being a recycled material, it avoids the use of internal painting, since it already has its own finish. All walls of the house are insulated with thermo acoustic blanket for thermal comfort. The environments have cross ventilation and wide openings for air exchange and thermal comfort. The house has no air conditioning system and remains pleasant even on the hottest days in Sao Paulo State. The internal doors of the first floor of the house are made with reused plates of the cutouts of the containers, minimizing the excess material.Save this picture!© Celso MellaniThe final residue of the work was 70% reused, basically summarized in wood and steel scraps.

In addition, 86% of these charities regularly review the diversity of their boards and 63% carry out a skills audit before recruiting new trustees compared to only 17% of charities overall.Also, 81% have beneficiaries on their boards of trustees. 98% of regeneration charities consult with their beneficiaries in one or more ways, and 97% of these charities use at least one method to measure their impact and effectiveness.Regeneration charities are also very good at reporting: 90% of regeneration charities had filed their Annual Return with the Commission, against only 82% of charities as a whole.Rosie Chapman, the Commission’s Director of Policy and Effectiveness, said: “These charities are characterised by models of best practice in a whole range of areas and it really shows. The level of accountability is exceptionally high, particularly in terms of measuring impact and involving users. They provide a great example to other charities grappling with issues of trustee scarcity and user involvement.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 31 October 2006 | News Regeneration charities praised by Charity Commission The Charity Commission has praised regeneration charities for their performance, effectiveness and best practice. The praise appears in “The Regeneration game”, the first review of regeneration charities in England and Wales.The report looks at the 250 organisations which adopted regeneration as a charitable purpose since it was first recognised as charitable in 1999, and analyses the performance of these charities against the charitable sector as a whole. The report has found that the total annual income for regeneration charities is £519 million, around 1.3% of the total for all registered charities. Seventeen per cent of regeneration charities already have an income of over £1 million, against an average of 3%, and they are more likely to be charitable companies (87% compared with 15% across the Commission’s Register as a whole).

Officers encourage proactive measures during holiday season Madeline Hammhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madeline-hamm/ Madeline Hamm Facebook Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Lily B. Clayton Elementary School’s PTA is purchasing tetherball poles, bike racks and laptop carts with the funds raised by its annual Walkathon.The seventh annual Walkathon raised $40,500, which surpassed its previous years record of $39,000.“This year’s event was a huge success,” said Amy Brown, PTA president. “If you’re doing a fundraiser like selling cookie dough or wrapping paper, you don’t get the kind of community involvement that you do with the Walkathon.”Besides purchasing equipment for the school, the funding provides additional training for teachers, extra books for the library, supplies for the classroom, stipends for teachers, and updates to the playground.In previous years, the PTA was able to upgrade the soccer field, track and basketball court.During a two-week period, students asked neighbors, relatives, and friends for donations. There were different incentives for students to bring money for the fundraiser. Among the incentives were a free dress day, an ice cream party and the opportunity to throw a ball at a dunk booth and sink a faculty member.“We had 546 students walking and 100 volunteers,” said Paul Denney, Walkathon chair. “Of the total students, 340 students donated $40 or more so that they could participate in the dunk booth.”The walk had a lot of community involvement. Mayor Betsy Price helped start the event while the Paschal High School band played.The neighborhood mile and a half walk started on the morning of Oct. 16 and concluded with a Family Spirit Night that evening. This was a free event for families and the community to celebrate the success of the fundraiser.A free dinner was provided along with carnival-themed activities such as face painting, confetti eggs, bounce houses, sporting events and an outdoor movie.Prior to the Walkathon, Lily B. Clayton and several other elementary schools sold cookie dough and wrapping paper as a fundraiser.Before 2009 the school made just $7,000 each year selling wrapping paper, said Holly Shipman, the original organizer of the Walkathon. Since moving the fundraiser to a walkathon the school increased profits to $21,000 in the first year.The school’s second fundraiser is an auction that will be held in the spring on April 23. Brown says that the PTA hopes to raise as much as $80,000.For more information visit Lily B. Clayton’s website.

The main route is as follows:Quay Trail from existing greenway behind Sainsbury’s supermarket, Derry to the entrance of Foyle Hospice on the A2 (this section will also include a new bridge across the Pennyburn river)Entrance of Foyle Hospice along A2 on left-hand side towards Thornhill CollegeThornhill College to Culmore village, turning right on to Culmore Point Road continuing adjacent to the River FoyleConey Road (with a link to Hollybush PS on Ardan Road) past Culmore Country Park, turning right on to Canning’s Lane in Muff (with a proposed new cycle/pedestrian bridge at the border crossing)Turning right on to Kilderry Lane and continuing to the R238Connection on R238 back towards the Community Hall and also in the direction of the Muff Community Park;In Muff, the route will also include an additional link to the village centre from further up Canning’s Lane on to Kilderry Lane, coming out at Main Street opposite Borderland.The North West Greenway Network programme manager, Jonathan Henderson said: ‘almost 300 attended the consultation events which were held in May and we received over 100 written submissions. A key outcome from the consultation process is that people on the whole supportive of the project concept and are keen to see both local authorities construct infrastructure which encourages cycling and walking between the two locations. The rationale for the chosen route has been explained in the Stage 2 Preferred Route Corridor Selection Report which will be available at both events as well as online from 28 November.’At both events the general public will have an opportunity to leave comments on the proposals. For those who are unable to attend, plans and a comments’ card will be available at www.nwgreenway.com. After these events, both local authorities will proceed to lodge formal planning permissions in both jurisdictions and will engage with landowners along the route to agree Twitter Harps come back to win in Waterford Homepage BannerNews Google+ WhatsApp read more

Oxford University could soon be in serious conflict with the colleges over its future. University authorities are planning radical changes to ensure that Oxford’s status as a world-class institution is secure. Part of the plan is to make the University run more like an efficient business. Several policies suggest that Oxford is keen to keep up with its rivals, particularly the leading American universities, by centralising the administration system. In practical terms, authority will move away from colleges to the central University offices. The change is likely to cause friction between the University and the colleges, which all have a proud tradition of independence and are expected to fight attempts at change. Pro-Vice-Chancellor Bill Macmillan’s plans for the next 16 years include a policy to expand the number of graduates by 1.9% each year. Admitting more graduates to the university is often a lucrative means of fund raising, especially if the University’s reputation continues to secure the attention of overseas students. It remains to be seen if the it will consult all its students before adopting such a radical approach, and, if the changes are controversial, what action the student body will take. The University and various colleges declined to comment.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004 read more
