HOUSE AM _ The project broadens an existing small house situated in a residential area developed in the ’70s: isolated houses of various shape, disorderly, looking closely to each other, over the hedges of leftover gardens.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaThe house shows surprisingly the fortunate presence of a back garden, to a certain extent, extraordinarily intimate compared to the street side. Here the new volumes find their location, lying on the grass.Save this picture!SectionThe wood coating, the white plaster and the base walls in exposed concrete reproduce some of the formal elements typical of the houses of the 70s, which were referring to some own traits of the contemporary Alpine architecture, taking on, in those years, a popular diffusion also outside their sphere of belonging.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaThe reuse of these materials, deliberately inspired from some of the best-known experiences of the modern movement, has the aim to approach the existing house without creating new fragments and working on a principle of extension instead of a pure juxtaposition. In this way, what has been added cannot be separated from what was already there, and this explains its presence.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaI imagined that the skin of the building could function as a device capable of providing clear information to the surrounding. The skin is supposed to be a kind of shield against the curiosity of neighbors.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaAccording to this logic the façade shows an intermingling of rejecting materials and wide inclusive openings. The metal sheet of the roof that turns up on the façade interprets this defensive act; the terrace, which is thrown at its side, is there to mitigate that arrogance. This continuous game of alternations is the rule of the project.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Berlage Public Events Spring 2014EventHouse K2 / Pauliny Hovorka ArchitektiSelected Projects Share Contractor: center_img Architects: Giampaolo Mazzon Area Area of this architecture project photographs:  Francesco CastagnaPhotographs:  Francesco Castagna Idroclima Roncato Snc “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/599903/am-house-giampaolo-mazzon Clipboard Ingegneria delle Costruzioni Srl Year:  Save this picture!© Francesco Castagna+ 23 Share Year:  Houses Stonework: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/599903/am-house-giampaolo-mazzon Clipboard CopyHouses, Extension•Treviso, Italy CopyAbout this officeGiampaolo MazzonOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionTrevisoHousesRefurbishmentItalyPublished on February 18, 2014Cite: “AM House / Giampaolo Mazzon” 18 Feb 2014.

The Houses at 1340 are a set of three, modern, turnkey homes in North Vancouver designed by mcfarlane biggar architects + designers (omb) for Harbourview Projects. Harbourview wanted to increase the density from the one, past-prime family home on the property, and to maximize the site’s unique characteristics: its unobstructed city views to the south and lush ravines — long-admired by Harbourview’s principals — to the north. They also wanted to gear the project towards a buyer who wants to partake in North Vancouver’s active lifestyle and natural amenities, as well as someone who wants a contemporary design — to stand apart from the typical, north shore bungalow — but without the hassle, cost or time commitment of a custom commission.Save this picture!© Ema PeterBecause there was no specific homeowner to create for, the team drew on their own experiences, interests and desires — as though they were the perspective buyers themselves. The team set the homes up to accommodate the challenges and joys of contemporary life, by facilitating a growing, ever-changing family. They also arranged the homes to maximize privacy, creating a feeling of peace and seclusion within the broader, busy urban area.Save this picture!Site Planomb set up the approach to the house to showcase the uniqueness of the aesthetic. Turning down a quiet cul-da-sac, the three identical homes, all clad in shades of grey, step along the sloping lot, resonating with the surrounding greenery as well as the nearby bungalows. From the street, two-vehicle carports with attached coach houses screen in an interior courtyard and create a sense of privacy on the ground floor. The massing of each home’s second level also plays with privacy. The upper level balconies are recessed within wrap-around enclosures, distinctive forms that are visible from the street, but which block out the site of the neighbours from within.Save this picture!© Ema PeterFor the interiors, omb devised floor plans for a multitude of modern living arrangements. Visiting relatives or long-term guests can stay in the coach house, which has a sleeping area. The basement, with a separate exterior entrance as well as interior stairs, also has a long-term guest suite, with its own bathroom and kitchen — ideal for a nanny or live-in care giver. Grandparents who don’t want to deal with stairs can stay on the main floor, which has three additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The main floor also has a north-facing family room with its own access so that it can turn into an office with separate, at-grade access.Save this picture!© Ema PeterSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ema PeterBecause the majority of the bedrooms are on the lower levels, the architects aligned the second floor so that the principal spaces take in the best views. The more public spaces — the living and dining areas — face south, to Vancouver’s skyline. The more private areas — the kitchen and the master suite — are nestled in the quiet of the ravine. The best of both views is experienced on the full, rooftop patio. The stair access is positioned so that it isn’t visible to the neighbours, creating the illusion of a completely flat roof. Once up top, the homeowners will enjoy an uninterrupted survey of their surroundings.Save this picture!© Ema PeterProject gallerySee allShow lessLino Russo’s “Skymetric” Series Highlights the Architecture of Milan ExpoArchitecture NewsGA Designs Radical Shipping Container Skyscraper for Mumbai SlumUnbuilt Project Share Houses at 1340 / Office Of Mcfarlane Biggar Architects + Designers Inc.

The fact that it’s down to two lanes is pretty frustrating and I have to leave a lot earlier to get places,” said Kendall Looney, a senior nursing major.The Fort Worth Water Department is putting in a new water line on University Drive next to TCU, according to Mary Gugliuzza, the communications representative from the department.“Most of the pipe is in the ground and they have made the connections from the old pipe to the new pipe. Now the construction workers are working on the street repairs and patching up University,” Gugliuzza said.Gugliuzza said that despite heavy traffic, there wasn’t another time to do this project and that the water department is working as fast as it can.TCU works closely with the Fort Worth Water Department to plan the construction, according to Harold Leeman, associate director for major projects and facilities planning.“We’ve gotten a good working relationship with the city,” Leeman said. “We have to get water plans through them.”“The city is putting new water pipes for drinking water in and they’ve had this on the books for quite a while to build,” Leeman said.Leeman added that the water department said they would open up the whole street on game days in compliance with TCU.The water department is working on more water repairs on Bellaire Drive North and Stadium Drive in January.The construction on University Drive will be finished in mid-October, according to Gugliuzza.

Rose Parade’s Seaworld Float Protestor Plans Unusual Court Defense

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Amanda Slyter—one of 16 protesters arrested for “interfering with a special event” after blocking the SeaWorld float at the Rose Parade— is scheduled to go to trial on Wednesday and her defense counsel reportedly will argue an unusual legal defense.Sources say Slyter’s defense team will argue that the capture and lifetime confinement of orcas in SeaWorld’s concrete tanks constitute an emergency that necessitates action and that, therefore, her disruption of a propaganda plan to support continued captivity must be permitted under law.This is possibly the first time that “necessity” (also known as the “less of two evils” or “greater good” defense) has been argued exclusively to justify action taken to prevent harm done to captive animals used in entertainment.Outside the courthouse, dozens of PETA supporters are expected to hold signs that read, “Boycott SeaWorld!”“Every day that orcas suffer in captivity, denied everything that is natural and important to them for the sake of a theme park’s bottom line, is an emergency,” Slyter says. “PETA and I are pleading with everyone to help these orcas by rejecting SeaWorld’s prisons—and by demanding that the orcas be moved to coastal sanctuaries.” First Heatwave Expected Next Week EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Make a comment Herbeauty10 Instagram Girls Women Obsess OverHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Is What Happens To Your Face After DermaplaningHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Calls for third Derry bridge linking Newbuildings and Letterkenny Road

first_imgNews A Derry Councillor says it’s time to reopen the debate about a third bridge over the Foyle in Derry, this one linking Newbuildings and the Letterkenny Road.The need for such a bridge has been discussed before, most recently in a report last year, which found that of 6,100 vehicles arriving into the city from the A5 each day, about 50% have a destination on the Cityside which should not require driving into the centre.However, the report also found that the Letterkenny Road itself is not of a high standard, and would need substantial improvements for this bridge to function to its full potential.However, Cllr Tony Hasson says with so much work taking place on the Templemore and Culmore side, it’s time to revisit the third bridge idea….[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/tonyh830.mp3[/podcast] Facebook Facebook Calls for third Derry bridge linking Newbuildings and Letterkenny Road Pinterest Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire WhatsApp Twitter Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry WhatsApp Google+center_img Previous articleIncrease in rental costs in and around Letterkenny ITNext article470 children killed or injured on Donegals roads between 1997 and 2009 News Highland Google+ Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Twitter 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Pinterest By News Highland – August 16, 2011 last_img read more

Not crossing the line

first_imgLatest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author After a week or so, my next-door neighbor introduced herself. Her courage came from the fact that we had not yet hoisted the Confederate Flag nor had we turned a coon dog loose in the yard.Peggy and I became fast friends. She talked so fast I didn’t know half she said, so I alternately nodded, smile and sighed.One day she invited me to come see her new dining room furniture. As I lifted my foot to go into the room, she let out a blood-curdling scream that would have stopped a runaway train.“We don’t walk on the carpet!”I surveyed the jump from the doorway to the nearest chair and tried to imagine how her dinner guests would be seated. Maybe a pulley could be install that would fly them like Peter Pan over the carpet and into the chairs.Being new in town and friendless, I looked for any opportunity to win friends and influence people. When I heard the Presbyterians were sponsoring an art show, I asked Peggy if she would like to go.“No.”She offered no good and valid reasons why she couldn’t go or any deep, heartfelt regrets. Evidently, she had not read Miss Manners’ “Etiquette for Southern Belles.”I bumped into our across the street neighbors quite by accident. One of my children released the emergency brake on the car, and it rolled across the street and hit our neighbors’ ornamental “twig” tree.I apologized and offered to pay. He presented me with a $600 bill. I found him rude and, evidently, he thought I was stupid.Then, the tables turned.The school principal called to say my 8-year-old daughter had been involved in an “altercation.” I was from the South. He should have said, “fight.”When I arrived, my daughter was in the office with a girl I assumed to be a teacher’s aide. But the girl was the sixth grader my little daughter had punched in the eyes with both fists.The “bullie” (feminine gender) had drawn a line in the sand and dared the younger girls to cross it. On her side was all the playground equipment. So, my daughter socked her and crossed the line with a flock of friends following behind her.The principal said, with a frown, such behavior was not the way things were handled at his school.“How then?” I asked. He didn’t answer.That afternoon, several mamas called to say how proud they were that someone had finally stood up to the “bullie.”Rude vs. Stupid.After that, no more lines were drawn in the sand and I, one from below the line, was accepted into the moms’ social circle. True Southerners consider anywhere above the Mason-Dixon “the North,” whether it’s the Pacific Northwest or the Midwest. So, we were up North in Ohio … and stupid.I didn’t expect to be immediately welcomed into the hearts and homes of the folks from small town Ohio, but I did think that somebody would bring over a casserole or a potted plant.But, when newcomers move into a neighborhood driving a van with a cactus painted on the side, an Alabama tag on the back and an “Eat More Beef” tag on the front, that was, evidently, reason enough for folks to close their windows and lock their doors – much like Mama did when the Gypsies came through town.

Nashville bombing suspect killed in explosion: FBI

first_imgThe #FBI and #ATF are seeking info concerning the owner of the RV, Anthony Quinn Warner, linked to the explosion in downtown Nashville on Friday morning. Recognize him? Call 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit tips online at https://t.co/hG6KFmQ7dG. @FBI @ATFHQ @ATFNashville pic.twitter.com/o8fqiHkATl— FBI Memphis (@FBIMemphis) December 28, 2020Multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News that investigators are looking seriously at whether Warner may have been motivated, at least in part, by paranoia over 5G cellular technology.Korneski said his team does not know what Warner’s alleged motives were, but “are aware of certain things online, and we’re looking at every possible motive.” He urged anyone who knew Warner or has any information to use the FBI’s tipline.“These pieces of information will help us determine the suspect’s motive,” he said.More than 250 FBI personnel from at least seven field offices are in Nashville working on the investigation, including special agents, analysts and professional staff, who are conducting interviews, collecting evidence and coordinating with partner agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and state and local investigators.The high-stakes drama began to unfold about 6 a.m. on Friday when the officers working the late night shift received a call of shots fired inside a building located at 178 Second Avenue North, officials said.The Nashville police officers being hailed as heroes for saving lives during a massive Christmas morning bombing described on Sunday their quick actions to evacuate buildings as they raced against an eerie recording counting down to detonation and the Petula Clark song “Downtown” coming from a recreational vehicle packed with explosives.“Immediately, they didn’t think about their own lives. They didn’t think about themselves. They thought about the citizens of Nashville and protecting them, and they went about knocking on doors,” Chief Drake said, as he introduced five of the six officers at a news conference. “Had they not made those efforts, we’d be talking about the tragedy of people and lives lost.”Metro Nashville police officers James Luellen, Brenna Hosey, Michael Sipos, Amanda Topping, James Wells and Sgt. Timothy Miller were described as “heroes” by Drake and Nashville Mayor John Cooper.“I think they may consider what they did was just a regular part of their duties. But we in Nashville know it was extraordinary, and it’s thrilling to have them in our community, and we need to recognize their heroism,” Cooper said, before each officer recounted the bombing that damaged at least 41 buildings, ignited several vehicles on fire and left a huge crater on Second Avenue North.Officer Luellen said he was the first to arrive on the scene and began to check the building for gunfire and requested the security code to get inside. He said that the moment Officer Hosey arrived at the scene to back him up, a recorded voice from the RV parked on the street began reciting an urgent warning.“The RV started making an announcement somewhere along the lines, don’t quote me exactly, but it’s, ‘There is a large bomb within this vehicle. Your primary objective is to evacuate,’” Luellen said. “I wasn’t quite sure what I heard, so I looked at Officer Hosey just to verify we heard the same thing, and then it started over.”He said he radioed his supervisor, Sgt. Miller, who told him to ask every available officer to get to the scene and start to evacuate residents.As officers Topping and Wells began to block off streets in the area, Luellen, Hosey and Sipos entered an apartment building and commenced knocking on doors and alerting residents of a possible public safety risk outside. He said residents from about six or seven apartments were then instructed to evacuate out a rear basement door.Luellen said he and his colleagues then went back to the area of the RV to move their patrol cars away from it and make sure no other civilians were in harm’s way. He said the RV’s drapes were drawn, and there were no registration tags on it.Hosey recalled that the recorded voice coming from RV then began a chilling countdown, saying, “14 minutes to detonation.” She said the warning was followed by the Petula Clark song, “Downtown.”Luellen said that as the voice from the RV counted down to three minutes before detonation, he spotted a man emerge from a nearby building with his dog. He said that just as he yelled at the man to go back inside, the RV exploded.“I got knocked to the ground. I immediately got up, luckily no injury or nothing like that. I noticed the gentleman in shock with his dog. I checked on him, got him inside,” Luellen said.He said he then ran to check on Miller, who was still inside his patrol car. He said the explosion caused the airbag of Miller’s patrol car to go off and that the sergeant was cutting it away when he opened the door.Hosey recalled that just before the blast, she saw a woman with a stroller and four children on the street. She said the sight “put my heart in my throat.”“I’m asking can I help her… she has a stroller… and I tell her there’s a serious threat, and we need you to go. I’m thankful we were able to get her out,” Hosey said.She said she was thrown forward and knocked to the ground by the explosion.“I made a phone call to a loved one to let them know that I was OK, and then I ran to the intersection to check on Miller and Luellen to make sure they were OK,” she said, her voice cracking with emotion. “That’s when I got on the radio to make sure Wells was OK.”She said she got no immediate response from Wells.Wells said the blast caused him to temporarily lose hearing in his left ear, and he didn’t hear Hosey and other officers radioing him.Wells said once he heard the music coming from the RV, he feared officers were being set up for an ambush and began scanning the tops of buildings and parking garages looking for an active shooter.“At that moment it felt real, and it felt like there was going to be some secondary activity. So every time we came out of a building, we made sure that we were looking around and checking high areas, just making sure nobody was peeking around and looking at us,” Wells said.He said that just before the blast, he was walking back toward the RV and “I literally hear God tell me to turn around and go check on Topping, who was by herself.”“For me, it felt like I only took three steps and then the music stopped, and as I’m walking back towards Topping now, I just see orange and then I hear a loud boom,” Wells said.He said the explosion caused him to stumble.“I was just telling myself, ‘Stay on your feet, stay alive,’” Wells said. “I just take off in a full out sprint, and I’m running toward Topping to make sure she’s OK. We kind of meet in the middle, and we just grab each other and checking each other.”He said he yelled to Topping to get her gun out in case they came under fire.“It was just weird,” Wells said. “It felt like something out of a movie.”Topping added that when she grabbed Wells, “I’ve never held someone so hard.” She said hearing Wells voice in that chaotic moment “is what got me to see my kids on Christmas.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Metro Nashville Police Department via Getty ImagesBy BILL HUTCHINSON, JEFFREY COOK and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Federal investigators said the suspect in the Christmas Day RV bombing in Nashville was killed in the explosion.FBI investigators said DNA evidence found at the scene matched Anthony Quinn Warner, who was earlier named as a person of interest.“Anthony Warner is the man believed to be responsible for this horrible crime,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake said at a news conference.Human remains were discovered amid the blast debris, and investigators worked to determine if they belonged to the RV owner. Multiple law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News the suspect was identified as Warner of Antioch, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville.Douglas Korneski, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Memphis field office, told reporters that investigators were able to make the match quickly after they obtained DNA from Warner’s home.Federal agents arrived Saturday at properties in Antioch connected to Warner in order to conduct court-authorized searches, sources told ABC News. A Google Maps Street View image of Warner’s address shows an RV, which appears similar to the one used in the blast, in a fenced-in section of the yard.Korneski said there appears to be no other suspect involved with the bombing, but the investigation is ongoing.Authorities believe the RV was parked in front of an AT&T transmission building at 1:22 a.m. on Friday, but it remains unclear if the building was targeted. The Tennessee Highway Patrol confirmed the RV’s VIN was registered to Warner.As investigators work to determine what motivated Warner to set off the explosive, they are also trying to determine whether the AT&T building where the RV was parked was Warner’s intended target.last_img read more
