There was nothing remarkable about the brief; full of common needs in this market such as more living space, an extra bedroom, a nicer master suite, better connection to the exterior zone, somewhere to work from, etc. The magic happened when the clients embraced their own journey and accepted that in simplicity, they would find their most exceptional outcome.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThat is investing their emotions and hard saved dollars into something a little bit more considered, they would achieve the home that would bring a smile to their faces daily.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThe brief made mention of two other important design clues: 1)respecting the context and the neighbors with whom they had lived beside and shared the good times over the years and 2) retaining the worthwhile fabric of the existing dwelling. Simple ideas, but generous in their ultimate influence of the design approach and therefore the form of the finished home.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionIntuition told us impact to the neighbors could be overcome by not increasing the parameters of the existing form. We also knew the existing home had good bones, just a clumsy layout, so we gave it the love it needed and embraced a more simple approach to circulating from front to back.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierExtruding the section of the existing home but deleting everything between, to create an open Living zone was conceived and embraced by a collaborative design team. The rear façade was completely glazed such that the new Living zone is visually as big as the view to the back fence. Architecture and design is an industry of problem-solving.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThe Extruded House was a collection of minds all working together to focus on the quality of the solution, not the quantity. The project did not add lots of square meters, it just made more sense of the existing ones. Now a generous volume sits atop a modest footprint, yet without burdening the site or the context and the emphasis was put into the finished product.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThe form of the extruded shape was constructed in off-form concrete, challenging the yardstick of fabrics belonging to the federation home, yet offering a calm contrast to its historical embellishments. A strong dialogue was created between the two forms by virtue of their sharing of shape, but their materiality serves to remind us of their respective moment in time.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierWith this in mind, sight lines exist between the forms of the old and the new, and apart from connecting the interiors to the luscious landscape of the rear yard, they remind the owners of where they are now and where they’ve come from. Within the new concrete, shell sits a timber clad wall, being the trace of the old home as it stood at the rear of the block. Where the old roof changed shape, an opportunity arose to incorporate highlight glazing providing southern light with a view to the existing roof.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierBeing solid concrete construction, with wall cavities, the shell of the home provides instant thermal mass. The blackfin at the rear elevation controls the direct sunlight such that lower winter sun is controlled and harnessed by the thermal mass of the concrete floor, The higher summer sun is repelled from the interior such that no direct heat gain occurs on the hotter days.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThe double height space of the new Living zone is exhausted via a solar ventilator incorporated behind a bespoke timber grille. Rainwater is harnessed and recycled for use in the gardens. An abundance of natural light in both the new and existing spaces means there is little need for artificial lighting and therefore energy consumption during daylight hours.Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierProject gallerySee allShow lessPastrami Bar / Crosby StudiosSelected ProjectsPark-Yilan Ju / The Design Institute of Landscape and Architecture China Academy of ArtSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Neutral Bay, Australia Extruded House / MCK Architecture & InteriorsSave this projectSaveExtruded House / MCK Architecture & Interiors Structural Engineering: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917719/extruded-house-mck-architecture-and-interiors Clipboard Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Projects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917719/extruded-house-mck-architecture-and-interiors Clipboard SDA Structures CopyAbout this officeMCK Architecture & InteriorsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNeutral BayAustraliaPublished on May 27, 2019Cite: “Extruded House / MCK Architecture & Interiors” 27 May 2019.

OP-ED: Pop in to Monumental Marketplace This June

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News OP-ED: Pop in to Monumental Marketplace This June SHARE Facebook Twitter This op-ed comes from Bruce Kettler, Director of the Indiana State Dept. of Agriculture.Each year I look forward to Spring, birds begin chirping and my lawn turns green once again. The warmer weather makes it the perfect time to explore one of Indiana’s beautiful state parks with my family and afterwards find the nearest local ice cream shop. While there are sure to be many opportunities for family fun this summer, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention one of my favorite events which features fresh local foods, artisans, food trucks and of course, ice cream – Monumental Marketplace.Our Indiana Grown team really stepped up to the challenge during a very difficult 2020. Not only did they have to cancel the 2020 Monumental Marketplace, but as we all know, the Indiana Grown state fair store also didn’t happen. Once this all came into realization, looking for new ways to best serve their membership, the Indiana Grown team worked quickly to build an online shopping platform for Indiana Grown members to sell products directly to consumers. Promotion began and shopping soon followed on ShopIndianaGrown.org. This was a tremendous feat, but worthwhile for these great Indiana Grown products to make it right to customers’ front doors.This year we are excited to continue to offer a place for members to sell their products online through the store as well as reintroduce our in-person markets. The Indiana Grown Monumental Marketplace began in 2017 and I am proud to say has grown each year. On Friday, June 18, 2021 Indiana Grown members will be back on Monument Circle and I am hopeful this will be our best Marketplace to date!Monumental Marketplace is a farmers market style event held on Monument Circle each June and features dozens of Indiana Grown members. These members will be offering almost anything you can think of, like fresh fruit, local wine and spirits, fresh meats, handmade soaps and lotions, fresh hot pulled pork sandwiches, and local popcorn.Speaking of popcorn, did you know popcorn grown in Indiana recently became Indiana’s official state snack? Its right up there with tulip trees, cardinals and our beloved sugar cream pie. Monumental Marketplace will have a wide variety of our new official state snack, so be sure you schedule some time to pop in!Our Indiana Grown staff are pleased to be working with state health officials and the city of Indianapolis to follow all local guidelines in order to provide a safe event for all to enjoy.Monumental Marketplace will be held on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis on Friday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and I can’t wait to see you there! If you can’t make it, be sure to shop online at ShopIndianaGrown.org for great local Indiana products shipped directly to your door.– Bruce Kettler, Director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture Facebook Twitter By Indiana State Dept. of Agriculture – Jun 8, 2021 SHARE OP-ED: Pop in to Monumental Marketplace This June Previous articleCourt Ruling Will Concentrate Market Power in Pork SectorNext articleNCGA Unveils First Sustainability Goals to Achieve by 2030 Indiana State Dept. of Agriculturelast_img read more

Fort Worth to update Berry Street

first_imgMarch for Our Lives calls for gun reform in America Linkedin ReddIt U.S. and European allies target Syrian chemical weapons production with airstrike Betsy Foresmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/betsy-foresman/ Facebook printThe City of Fort Worth is planning the future of the Berry Street area. City Council’s approval of the University/Berry Form-based Code is one of the first steps toward updating the Berry Street area.According to the final version of the code, published by the City of Fort Worth, “[the] code is intended to balance conservation and development, achieve design excellence in the built environment, [and] guide Fort Worth’s prosperous and sustainable future.”Felix Landry, senior planner for the City of Fort Worth, explained the code saying, “the form based code establishes a set of development regulations which largely maintains the standards already in place while adding additional guidelines for the functional and aesthetic character of new structures built within the boundary.”The new code will encompass Berry Street from Stadium Drive to 6th Street.

Instead of dividing neighborhoods by building function, developers will focus on how new projects will fit into the area’s environment.This zoning project has been a collaborative effort between the city, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, Texas Christian University and the Berry Street Initiative.Todd Waldvogel, TCU’s associate vice chancellor for facilities & campus planning, said he thinks the code will be good for the area.“The new code allows appropriate flexibility for TCU and our Berry Street neighbors to develop in ways consistent with the desired urban revitalization, while still conforming to an established vision for a vibrant streetscape,” Waldvogel said.The city received a lot of public input at the beginning of the project, according to Landry. He also said the drafting of the ordinance was guided by the public’s input.The code was continued by the zoning commission at the end of last year for further meetings with residents, according to Jocelyn Murphy, planning manager for the City of Fort Worth.Fort Worth City Council voted to approve the Berry/University Form-based Code Feb. 7.Landry said the code won’t take effect for another two to three weeks until it is published and publicly posted.

Hood’s police “altercation” denied by Uni

first_imgTHE UNIVERSITY has denied allegations published in a national newspaper on Sunday that Vice-Chancellor John Hood was engaged in a fight with police last month.Oliver Marre, a writer for The Observer’s ‘Pedennis’ column, claimed that Hood had an “altercation” with Thames Valley Police after he tried to park his car.“I was contacted by a disinterested bystander at last month’s St Giles’ Fair in Oxford, who says he witnessed an ‘altercation’ between the VC (who has a business background rather than an academic one) and the local constabulary over his attempts to park in a closed-off street,” Marre said.A spokesperson for the University claimed that the story was “malicious rubbish”, adding, “There are people who would happily mouth off about the Vice-Chancellor, but I wouldn’t want to accuse them of anything.”Hood has continued to face pressure from dons angry at his determination to reform the University’s governance structure. Hood finally abandoned his plans in March 2007, writing to the  Chief Executive of HEFCE and announcing that his reforms had been shelved. Despite this, opposition to Hood has persisted among rebellious academics.Marre said, “Surely Hood doesn’t believe that his debates with dons over the governing of the University are leading them to brief newspapers against him? With relations this bad, can it be long before it turns into a case of fisticuffs in the Bodleian?” By Peter Wrightlast_img read more

$100 million for Oxford research

first_imgDespite the financial crisis, Oxford University has raised $100 million (£66 million) in just one year to support groundbreaking research on key global problems. Dr James Martin, the founder of the James Martin 21st Century School for graduate research, launched the ‘matched funding’ challenge to encourage donors to contribute towards research which would tackle future global challenges.Dr Martin, one of the world’s leading computer scientists, is an alumnus of Keble College and Oxford University’s most generous benefactor. He pledged $50 million to the University on the condition that this sum was matched by a further $50 million coming from elsewhere.More than 30 different donors, including charities, corporations, research bodies and philanthropic individuals such as George Soros, have donated, enabling the full $100 million to be achieved.Dr Martin instigated the creation of the James Martin 21st Century School in 2005 with an original endowment of $100 million. He offered the latest funding challenge to inspire new research and opportunities at the school. Dr Martin said that he decided to sink part of his fortune into Oxford because “it has the capability to do the best scholarship on complex subjects”.  The research will also explore how to ensure future food and fuel security, the problems of ageing populations, and how to prevent future economic shocks. “When the matched funding scheme was announced, many people said ‘this is crazy timing as this is the worst economic crash in recent history’,” Dr Martin said. “The Vice-Chancellor and I disagreed with them. Some foundations and wealthy individuals give money in bad times if the cause is exceptionally important.  “The James Martin 21st Century School at Oxford has demonstrated that it can identify the most serious dangers and opportunities of our future. Together we are funding solutions that will really make a difference.” The new funding will be used to support 19 projects on subjects as diverse as the future of cities, brain manipulation, and vaccine design. All of this will be incorporated into membership of the James Martin 21st Century School. Andrew Hamilton, Oxford’s Vice-Chancellor, said, “James Martin and the donors whose funding he has matched have placed their confidence in Oxford as the best place to tackle the global challenges of the 21st century.“I am delighted that their vision and commitment will enable more collaborative and high-impact research to be developed across Oxford.”The success of Dr Martin’s campaign has significantly contributed to the University’s current fundraising initiative “Oxford Thinking”, which aims to raise £1.25 billion. Since its creation in May 2008, ‘Oxford Thinking’ has already reached the £800m mark.Adrian Beecroft, former chief investment officer at private equity firm Apax Partners and founder of the Beecroft Institute of Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Oxford, raised $1 million for research into new developments in computing. He said, “I was excited by James Martin’s pledge and it provided me and the other donors with the incentive to raise $1 million, the amount needed to qualify for the matched funding. “We are delighted that the project we offered funding for is going ahead. Pushing the boundaries in computational science will benefit researchers in astrophysics as well as those working in climate science and medicine.” External research grants and contracts continue to be Oxford’s largest source of income. In 2008-9, more than 40% (£340.5 million) of income came from external research sponsors.Money for Oxford’s research has doubled in the last five years and grew by almost 20% between 2008 and 2009 alone, dispelling fears that the economic crisis would severely affect the university’s income.Oxford consistently has the highest research income from external sources of any UK university. More than an extra £80 million is funded by the generosity of Oxford’s benefactors, compared to Cambridge’s total research income for 2008-9 of £260 million, Imperial College London’s £255 million, and Manchester University’s £253 million. OUSU Academic Affairs Officer Jonny Medland told Cherwell, “This sort of research is only possible as a result of donations… While academic interests should always drive Oxford’s activity this should be funded by a range of sources including philanthropy.”last_img read more

Hundreds Travel To Evansville For Republican Convention

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Hundreds Travel To Evansville For Republican ConventionJUNE 8TH, 2018  AMANDA PORTER INDIANAFor the second time in history, Indiana lawmakers will hold the 2018 Republican convention outside of the state’s capital.More than seventeen hundred G.O.P members will convene at the Ford Center in downtown Evansville this weekend.Saturday party leaders will nominate their candidates for the 2018 election.They are also set to take a vote on the official party platform.Included in that a controversial proposal to remove key language about marriage.They’re looking to remove the words “based on marriage between a man and a woman…” which is sparking heated discussions.“The goal of the prevision was to say that we support strong families as the Republican party,” says Republican chairman Kyle Hupfer, “and so long that a child is being raised in a loving and caring environment then being raised to be a productive member of Indiana society and we want to support that structure.”Some protesters are set to march from the C.K Newsome center to the Ford center downtown.The Evansville police department will have a strong presence throughout the weekend.“We understand in an event like this you have to expect people to come out they may not understand where they can be at all times or how to get from point a to point b,” says EPD Sgt. Jason Cullum.“We are really out here to keep everybody safe even people that are described as protesters so our first steps will always be to communicate with them.”The candidates who are nominated this weekend will appear on the ballot later this fall in Indiana’s mid-term election.last_img read more

Neil Young Is Basically Doing Whatever He Wants At This Point

first_imgFolk rocker Neil Young is now 70 years old, and some 50-years into a music career that started with Buffalo Springfield in 1966. With a new live album out called Earth that blends show recordings with animal noises and Earth tones (read the review here), it seems that Young has reached the point where he doesn’t care what people think. At least, that’s how he comes across in a new interview with Rolling Stone, published earlier today.“This is the age where you should have freedom to do whatever you want and put it out,” he says of the new album. “I like to listen to the animals… “I like to track the beauty of what’s going on. I enjoy being with the plants and stuff.” He then adds, “There’s a lot going on in the world that isn’t all lovey-dovey and cool beach songs… I’ve done all of that.”Young continues on a war path against societal practices, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has heard the word PONO before. Young has long had issues with the technology behind music, saying, “Technology has done a disservice to music… I think there’s a place for rebel radio, with special receivers, where jocks play what they want: vinyl, new stuff, old stuff, and it’s all analog. Because there’s no variety. It’s all, like, GMO music.”“Just because everything else is broken doesn’t mean I have to be broken,” he says about his own music, before giving praise to Mikah and Lukas Nelson of his newest backing band, Promise of the Real. “They’re much better players than I am. Lukas is like a gunslinger, and Micah is very ethereal and spaced. So they’re completely different, and I’m somewhere in between.”Of course, don’t expect Young to play his biggest hits, even at this October’s Desert Trip festival. On the bill with legends like Paul McCartney, The Who and more, Young says of the upcoming gig, “I don’t give a shit… I don’t care what people want to hear – that’s not why I’m playing. I’m not an entertainer in the classic sense. I play what I feel like playing, and I hope the people like it.”Young’s mental freedom is downright endearing, as fans clamor to hear long-lost songs from his iconic catalog. You keep on being you, Neil.last_img read more
