Three Parts House is an alteration and addition to a 1950s clinker brick residence on a 1200sq.m block of land. The house is programmatically and conceptually divided into 3 parts – the Lantern, the Courtyard and the Brickhouse.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsULMA Architectural SolutionsPaper Facade Panel in Leioa School RestorationFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornThe Lantern is the existing 2 storey part of the house, programmatically it contains the bedrooms, bathrooms, a formal living room, as well as the entry. The north, west and part of the south facade are glazed with double layered U-profile glass panels to achieve a large singular span façade for monumentality, under the existing roof and eaves. 8 varying textures and frostings were selected to wrap around the existing structure, providing tactility and varying light transmission quality. This façade is further shaded by a large growing Ginkgo tree, and after dark the building turns into a glowing lantern.Save this picture!© James CoombeThe Courtyard is the link between the old and new, with the long corridor and sewing room forming part of this connection. This central courtyard allows light and air to penetrate into the depths of the building plate. Much like a Japanese Imperial villa, multiple layers of sliding doors and screen modify the spatial relationship between indoor and outdoor, transforming the circulation space into an extension of the courtyard, or using the retractable flyscreen to create a shaded, airy passageway on hot summer days.Save this picture!© James CoombeWe envisage this space to be filled with a flurry of activity throughout day and night, the direct connection to the courtyard making it the perfect for the kids. With that in mind the screens are painted as chalkboard with magnetic undercoat, these become kids’ doodle central, activating an otherwise utilitarian transitional zone.Save this picture!© Earl CarterThe Brickhouse is the new addition, a space for the family, as well as for entertaining guests. It opens to both the courtyard and the backyard, bringing the two outdoor spaces together under one roof. As the brickhouse extends into the courtyard, a simple brick-laid-on-edge brise-soleil screens form the walls, providing access and natural ventilation to the basement garage. This often seen but forgotten core-hole pattern creates a memorable and highly textured surface en masse, and at the same time, a functional and breathing façade.Save this picture!© Earl CarterOur approach to materiality was playful and dialectic. The gridded pattern of the bricks and the straight vertical lines of the U-profile glazing are juxtaposed against the crazy paved Mintaro slate courtyard floor; the heaviness of the bricks was contrasted against the lightness of the U-profile glazings; fine timber veneers and luxurious honed marble are placed directly next to raw unfinished steel.Save this picture!© Earl CarterColours were chosen to compliment the furnishings and predominantly white to act as a backdrop. We have used the client’s favourite colour – yellow, dotted throughout the entire house, and intermingling with other yellow objects – the entry coat peg, the awning, the rug, Dion Horstmans’s sculpture, basin mixers, chairs in the courtyard, the kitchen cupboards, and the monkey bar in the backyard. It is a playful journey that invites one to join the dots.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessHostal Ritoque / Alejandro Soffia + Gabriel RudolphySelected ProjectsRound Up: Made in ChinaMisc Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/501169/three-parts-house-architects-eat Clipboard Projects Save this picture!© Earl Carter+ 100 Share Sargant Construction 2013 Architects: Architects EAT Area Area of this architecture project Three Parts House / Architects EAT Photographs ESD Consultant: Proyect Team:Eid Goh, James Taylor, Emma Gauder, Julie SloaneEngineer:R.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. David Chan Credit: CaltechProfessor of Biology David Chan has been appointed the new dean of graduate studies at Caltech, effective October 1, 2020.Chan, who joined the Caltech faculty in 2000, will succeed the current graduate dean, Doug Rees, Caltech’s Roscoe Gilkey Dickinson Professor of Chemistry and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. Rees is completing his five-year term in the administrative post.“I am very excited for the opportunity to lead the graduate program at Caltech,” Chan says. “When I look back at my own career, I realize the transformative effect of my graduate education; it was an important period during which I was exposed to new ideas, interacted with brilliant scientists, and grew personally. Therefore, I am highly motivated to give back to graduate education, and I can’t think of a better place to do that than the world-class program at Caltech.”As graduate dean, Chan will be the principal administrator of Caltech’s graduate education program, which supports more than 1,200 students across the Institute’s six divisions and 31 graduate options. In this role, he will be responsible for leading the Dean of Graduate Studies Office and staff members, who represent graduate students’ interests across Caltech; address students’ welfare and educational concerns; support continuing and new diversity initiatives; and enforce the Institute’s rules and policies related to the academic program.“Doug Rees has been an extraordinarily thoughtful leader in the graduate dean’s office,” says Vice President for Student Affairs Kevin M. Gilmartin, who holds the Allen V.C. Davis and Lenabelle Davis Leadership Chair and is the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of English. “I have learned a great deal from our partnership in Student Affairs, and I know that our graduate students and graduate programs have benefitted immensely from his committed leadership.“We are all fortunate that David Chan will be stepping into this role during this particularly challenging time,” Gilmartin continues. “His commitment to our students is evident to all of us who have been involved with him and his research group through the years. As vice president for student affairs, I welcome the opportunity to work with yet another gifted faculty partner.”Chan has also served the Institute through his oversight of the Caltech-UCLA Medical Scientist Training Program, and he was recently appointed as vice chair of the faculty. He is the first member of the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering—formerly the Division of Biology—to serve as dean since this position was created in 1935, when Richard Tolman was appointed dean of the graduate school.Chan will transition into his new post at a time when Caltech’s academic program, including graduate student instruction this fall, is being offered remotely. Many incoming graduate and undergraduate students who come from other countries are prohibited from travel to the United States because of U.S. immigration policies, and have been granted the option to matriculate remotely. Furthermore, the Institute has had to reconfigure research operations and individuals’ access to laboratories for experimental research as part of its comprehensive efforts to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.“It’s obvious that we are living in challenging times,” Chan says, pointing to both the effects of the pandemic on campus research as well as a heightened focus on the Institute’s efforts to increase and support diversity. “But I am ready to build on the efforts of my predecessor to continue to navigate these issues and to help advance initiatives that will increase the presence of individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups and strengthen our program overall.” Make a comment faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 47 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Business News Top of the News STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published.

Paris pounces to thwart the Irish

first_img “He’s a mile-and-a-half to a two-mile horse. He quickens, and I think that’s made the difference. “I’ve always wanted to win this race. It’s very hard to do it, so it’s a great day.” Connections could now consider supplementing Trip To Paris for the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot. “This is a similar type of horse to Red Cadeaux and he’s improving all the time,” said Dunlop. “We might supplement him for the Gold Cup, but I think we’ll wait and see. “This horse relaxes. He wore blinkers as a colt (now a gelding) because he was lazy, but he can stay this far and he’s got a good turn of foot. “We don’t have to do anything with him at home now as he’s got a wonderful temperament. He’s become a man this year.” On a possible trip to Australia for the Melbourne Cup in the autumn, the Newmarket handler said: “He’s got to rise in the weights to get into the Melbourne Cup this year. “Maybe we’ll take two (Trip To Paris and Red Cadeaux) to halve the expense.” Press Association Lee said: “He was hanging badly left, and I ended up dropping the reins along the straight. “He’s always travelled well and he showed at Ripon he’s got a turn of foot.” The landscape of the race did not alter too much until the final five furlongs when the front-running Buthelezi faded out of the picture. John Reel was always to the fore and gained a slight advantage, but the Irish duo were hot on his heels and ended up jousting for top honours two furlongs out. Just when it looked like the versatile Quick Jack had the edge over Zafayan, Trip To Paris suddenly darted into contention and ended up scoring by three-quarters of a length on his first try at beyond two miles. Gabrial’s King completed the minor positions in fourth place. Dunlop, whose inmate was bringing up a hat-trick following victories at Lingfield and Ripon, said: “The horse was amazing. “It’s the first time he’s run at that trip – he’s been a revelation. I made the strange entry and he’s won. Trained by Ed Dunlop and ridden by Graham Lee, the four-year-old (10-1) arrived with a last-gasp charge from the outside of the field. Tony Martin’s Quick Jack finished second as the 4-1 favourite, while the Dermot Weld-trained Zafayan was third. Trip To Paris denied the Irish raiders when coming with a power-packed late run to claim the Betway Chester Cup.last_img read more


Amelia’s Ward Jets capture Under-23 basketball championships

first_imgBy Joe ChapmanTHE Amelia’s Ward Jets were able to overcome a strong Kwakwani side 70-68, to capture the Linden Amateur basketball Association/Hamid Foundation Under-23 basketball championships in dramatic style last Saturday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club hard court.Jets were able to snatch the win after the final’s Most Valuable Player (MVP), Akini Wilson, scored a reverse drive to the hoop to score with 15.2 seconds on the clock and stifled the Kwakwani unit out of the game to come away victors.After knocking off Half Mile Bulls in the semi-finals, the Jets found themselves against the outsiders Kwakwani in a final which seemed to favour the running game of the out-of-town side.With that first-quarter spurt led by Troy David, the tournament’s MVP, and his captain Leonard Primo, the Kwakwani side looked formidable but Jets remained in contention as they pulled within reach at half ime, trailing 31-37.By then Akini Wilson, Vibert Benjamin and Keison Butters had come to the party and made incisive plays down low to upset the rhythm of the un-ranked Kwakwani players. But the third quarter saw the visitors pull away once more and look for the kill as the third quarter finished 54-46 for the underdogs.However, the Jets would not go away and they pulled within a basket, adrift 54-56, with 6:18 to go. The Jets captain Shannon Cadogan then hit a floater as they remained in contention 56-58; but then David penetrated for a four-point advantage.Wilson sank a hook shot with 2 mins 28 secs left after the Kwakwani team, under pressure, turned the ball over and Butters played big with a penetration that sent his team ahead 65:64 with 1:16 remaining.Kwakwani regained the lead with just over a minute to go. Cadogan had a chance to send his team into the lead but could only hit one of two free throws for a tied game at 68. with 49.1 seciods to go.But with the tension rising with every second Kwakwani lost possession to the pressing Jets side and, after taking the ball cross court, the pass went in to Wilson on the left low post. He rounded his man and swished the ball for the go-ahead basket with 15.2 seconds remaining.Then Jets defended well to ensure victory was once again earned from pretty good team play as they were crowned the new champions and left Kwakwani dejected from that heartbreaking loss 70-68.The top shooters for the game for the winners came from Wilson with 23 points, Vibert Benjamin 17, Keison Butters 13 and George Yearwood 10. The Kwakwani best players were Tournament MVP Troy David with 18, Leonard Primo 13 and Domar Gladstone 10 points.In the third-place playoff game defending champions and top seed Half Mile Bulls pulled out a 51-49 win over fourth-ranked Retrieve Raiders. Tahquille Johnson and Terron Welch each had 15 points for the Bulls while the Raiders top scorers were Travis Sutton with 16 and Coel Winter 14.The championship trophy, donated by Gordon Moseley Promotions, was handed over by Mayor of Linden Carwyn Holland while the replicas, compliments of Save The Children Foundation, were handed over to the winning team by LABA president Lawrence Simon.The Most Valuable Player-of-the-Final Trophy, donated by LABA, went to Akini Wilson and that was presented by the Public Relations Officer of LABA.The Most Valuable Player Trophy for the Tournament, won by Kwakwani’s Troy David, was donated by World Access. It was presented by Tracey Liverpool and the second place trophy was presented by Member of Parliament Jermaine Figueira.Before the final game the teams were introduced by LABA president Lawrence Simon to Regional Executive Officer of Region Ten Gavin Clarke and Mayor of Linden Carwyn Holland.Abdulla Hamid of the Abdulla Hamid Foundation, who collaborated with LABA, thanked the many sponsors who came on board including Gordon Moseley, Save the Children Foundation and World Access.last_img read more
