On this humble inter-terrace site of under 1400sqft, the architects have managed to create a sensation of surprising openness and limitless space within a lush green environment, while still very comfortably accommodating all the necessary functions of a home. Situated within the narrow streets and densely packed rows of terrace houses of Opera Estate, it is difficult to imagine that such an open and well-ventilated house could be achievable. But through clever design and the immersion of natural greenery throughout both the internal and external spaces of the house, the feeling within the home is one of being encompassed by a boundless garden, with a gentle, constant breeze.Save this picture!SectionTo achieve this sense of spaciousness, the architects have tucked all the main service areas of the home away into a part basement, leaving the ground floor as a vast open space with a central courtyard. In this triple volume courtyard grows a leafy ficus tree within a bubbling water feature, bathed in gentle sunlight from the skylight above. The center of the home, which is in many inter-terrace houses a dark and uncomfortable space, is here transformed into a lush internal garden.Save this picture!© Masano KawanaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Masano KawanaThe front and the back facades of the 1st storey living spaces have been opened up to the maximum, using transparent roller shutters that can be hidden in the ceiling, allowing the prevailing winds to flow through the house. Surrounding this main living area are two external gardens at the front and back of the house. The front garden is a quaint chill-out space planted atop the car porch roof, creating a sensuous green backdrop for living room. The rear of the house has a small swimming pool directly outside the dining area that is nestled next to a textural boundary wall embedded with plants and ventilation blocks. These gardens and courtyard spaces of the home allow the occupants to feel the movement of the natural light across the house throughout the day, while shading them from its harsh impact. Several levels of tiered opened spaces can be seen while looking through the central courtyard – each planted with trees and creepers that lead the eye through the house, enhancing the views of the various spaces and greenery, and into the blue skies beyond.

The design for this self-built villa in Aarhus, Denmark, transforms an ordinary plot of land into an extraordinary place. In the old part of Risskov, located north of the city of Aarhus, with close proximity to the water and the forest, Boomerang House is nestled into a lush, green garden surrounded by tall hedges and mature trees.Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Frederikke NorgardFrom the beginning the site was unremarkable, but with the guidance of the architect, the project as a whole has become an exceptional place. Located 120m from the seashore, the area was originally planned as a lower-density area for holiday homes, where the citizens of Aarhus would spend their leisure time. Over the years, the area has evolved with a majority of homes as permanent residences, all the while maintaining a green and tranquil atmosphere.Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardThe architectural concept of the house is radically different from conventional planning practices of the day, for a parcel of this nature. Typically a building volume would be planned in parallel along one of the property boundaries to allocate as much free space for a garden as possible.Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardSave this picture!© Frederikke NorgardAfter carefully studying the compact lot, in consideration of the owner’s demands, Copenhagen firm AJG Architects deemed a conventional organisation would give a large part of the garden area significantly less user value and a large portion of the house facades would not optimise conditions of daylighting and garden view.Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardProject leader Kasper Ax proposed a bold design where the building volume is actually located centrally in the garden. “We achieved a feeling of fusion between house and garden in as many interior and exterior spaces as possible by placing the main part of the building volume in the center of the garden. The organic design thus divides the garden into a number of contiguous outdoor living zones, which gives the garden high utility value at all times of the day.”Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardThe house itself is designed as two heavy, bricked solids at each end of the garden, that carry a lightweight, floating organic roof clad in ash wood, thus creating a central open and transparent common living area with connection to all portions of the house.Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardThe owners have been responsible for the majority of the construction. This self-build model enabled more freedom, a higher level of craftsmanship, and an overall experimental approach to the design process. Together a wealth of tailor-made details were considered, in special conditions in regard to the processing of materials that have given the house its true one-of-a-kind character.Save this picture!© Frederikke NorgardProject gallerySee allShow lessBenjamin Carrión House Renovation / Bernardo Bustamante ArquitectosSelected ProjectsLuxembourg National Library / Bolles + Wilson + WW+ architektur + managementSelected Projects Share “COPY” Boomerang House / AJG Architects CopyHouses•Risskov, Denmark “COPY” Denmarklast_img read more

This never has been a viable means of transporting persons in custody”.Free standing chairs and office equipment pose risks to members encountering violent prisoners, Garda Thornton said.“Locker rooms provided at Newcastle West Garda Station fall well short of that required by the legislation given that Gardai are required to wear uniform, but also must have sufficient capacity to store items of personal protective equipment.“There are no facilities for pregnant, post natal or breast feeding employees to rest pursuant to Regulation 24 of the 2007 regulations.“The pressing issue presenting today and for the past number of years is that the membership and public of Newcastle West District have had enough and will not tolerate any further ‘kicking the can down the road’ politics.The Newcastle West station covers a geographical area of over 1,400 sqkm of County Limerick since the amalgamation of the Newcastle West and Askeaton districts in 2013.In June 2015, at the behest of the Garda Representative Association, an engineers inspection of the station was carried out. Fault were highlighted and the matter has been raised at Divisional Committee level ever since by Garda Alan O’Donnell attached to the station’s representative committee.Members are frustrated and feel like the “forgotten ones” he said.Along with a rat infestation in mid 2015 and the overcrowding of the mess facilities and female shower areas with member’s lockers, Garda Thornton said that it’s clear the station is ‘not fit for purpose’.Local TDs, including Deputy Tom Neville, were utterly shocked at the working conditions presented.Deputy Neville said that he has raised the matter at Government level and was told that the finance for Newcastle West Garda Station has been sanctioned but at present the issue relates to the Office of Public Works who have yet to respond.See more Limerick news here Advertisement WhatsApp Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Facebookcenter_img Email Twitter Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live NewsRisk, rats and prisoner problems plagued Limerick garda stationBy Staff Reporter – October 25, 2017 4152 Print TAGSlimerickNewcastle West Garda Station Previous articleWin cinema ticketsNext articleConnacht next for Munster after Racing squeeze Staff Reporter Linkedinlast_img read more

The Suspense is Over, Trump Wins the Presidency

Every vote mattered coming down to the state counts in the swing states, hotly campaigned by both candidates. But Tuesday night, Republican Donald Trump has been elected as the next President of the United States.What might housing policy look like under the new Trump administration, and how will Trump work with Congress on housing policy?In the limited moments that Trump has shared his thoughts on what he would do with the housing market, he stated that one of the big issues facing the housing industry is regulation.In his speech at the National Association of Home Builders’ 2016 Midyear Board of Directors Meeting in Miami, Florida, Trump said, in particular, there is no group regulated harder than the housing industry. Trump said these regulations kill not just the small businesses but jobs in general. Trump shared that he plans to eliminate these regulations and instead implement a method of creating jobs without regulation.Likewise, in an interview with Reuters in May, Trump said he plans to overhaul the controversial Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that was passed in 2010 in response to the crisis.“Dodd-Frank has made it impossible for bankers to function,” said Trump. “It makes it very hard for bankers to loan money for people to create jobs, for people with businesses to create jobs. And that has to stop.”Brian Montgomery, Vice Chairman and Co-Founder of The Collingwood Group and former FHA Commissioner says, “I hope both parties and the new Administration will include on their ‘priority list’ how to bring some stability and certainty to our nation’s housing finance system that will give lenders some comfort that widening the mortgage credit aperture won’t later invite regulatory intrusion. Equally important are finding solutions to the shortage of affordable rental housing in particular for very low income families and the elderly.”A lack of priority for housing in Congress is something those in the industry hope to see change with this newly elected house.”It’s amazing that something so vital as housing to the overall health of the American economy and the average American – is something Congress still can’t rally in support of resolving – especially when the risks associated with continued failure to do so are potentially so serious,” says Brian O’Reilly, The Collingwood Group President. “The facts are that housing is a critical component of overall economic health in the US. Thus, continued failure by Congress to address housing reform is reckless and irresponsible.”Montgomery adds that he hopes both sides will heed the words of Franklin Roosevelt who on the eve of his reelection in 1936 while citing the amount of work to be done said ‘we will keep our sleeves rolled up.’ Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Suspense is Over, Trump Wins the Presidency Tagged with: 2016 Presidential Election election results Housing Policy The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

As costumed students flood the streets during this time every spring, they leave little room for TCAT buses. As such, expect some minor bus delays Friday for the celebration.Related: Dragon Day: 30 photos from Cornell University’s 117th annual celebration center_img Kelsey O’Connor is the managing editor for the Ithaca Voice.
