The house-studio is located in the middle of the Catskills’ preserve at an elevation of 2,550 feet. Oak, birch and maple trees flank a small driveway that ends in a sloped clearing. Impact on the site is minimal as the building rises on the existing clearing.Save this picture!© Montse ZamoranoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Montse ZamoranoThe building is a narrow and long volume (24 x 58 feet footprint) accommodating the site’s slope and location. The first section of the volume is 24 feet long and the roof pitches towards one side, the second volume is 34 feet long with the roof pitching towards the opposite side. To deal with the 10% North-South slope and the 20% East-West slope of the site, we built a concrete slab and a U-shaped retaining wall that opens up towards the opposite side of the driveway, facing the best views of Wildcat Mountain and the valley.Save this picture!© Montse ZamoranoSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Montse ZamoranoTo address drastic temperature swings, strong North-South winds, maximize interior comfort and minimize energy consumption we placed the openings on the East and West facades achieving cross ventilation, optimal exposure to sun radiation and protection from dominant winds.The insulation is outside the building envelope creating a continuous insulated volume, eliminating thermal bridges and allowing us to leave the structure exposed on the interior. The façade is a cedar rain screen treated with “Shou Sugi Ban”, a Japanese wood-charring technique that protects cedar from water, fire and insects and doesn’t require maintenance. The wood acquires an iridescent texture reflecting the light and colors through all seasons. Furthermore, the weathering of the façade tunes in with the surrounding landscape, constantly attuned with the woods.Save this picture!© Montse ZamoranoEntering through the front door, the interior mimics the approach to the site: a narrow and long space with indirect light coming from the staircase (driveway) and comprising four bedrooms and three bathrooms in two stories; then it opens to a double height space (the clearing) containing living, dining, open kitchen and a studio. Throughout the building we alternate spans of 4’ to locate doors and windows, and 8’ to frame the views.Save this picture!© Montse ZamoranoThree openings and two pitched roofs: The first large opening gives the master bedroom a bird’s eye view of the mountains. The other two large openings flank the double height space showing the mountains on the West and the treetops on the East. The experience of this space changes through the day and the four seasons, receiving natural light from different sides from sunrise to sunset and witnessing the radical change of the surrounding landscape. The material experience of the house-studio varies with the changes in light, leafiness and forest’s colors.Save this picture!© Montse ZamoranoThe building becomes a resonance box that intensifies the experience of the outdoors indoors: Its insertion into the site, its volumetry and its materiality express the site’s calling into matter.Save this picture!© Montse ZamoranoProject gallerySee allShow lessBiomimicry Institute Launches New Online Course for DesignersArchitecture NewsPasadena Heritage Spring Home Tour – “Wallace Neff, Master Architect”Event Share Lead Architect: Area:  205 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Montse Zamorano Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  “COPY” “COPY” House Studio Camp O / Maria Milans StudioSave this projectSaveHouse Studio Camp O / Maria Milans Studio Architects: Maria Milans Studio Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard United States 2017 House Studio Camp O / Maria Milans Studio Save this picture!© Montse Zamorano+ 23Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

Funeral for man killed by Dallas police officer in wrong apartment: ‘Our prince royal was snatched from us’

first_imgWFAA-TV(DALLAS) — Hundreds of friends, loved ones and work colleagues of a 26-year-old man shot to death by a Dallas police officer in his own apartment filled a Texas church Thursday to celebrate his life and condemn the actions that “snatched” him in his prime.Botham Jean was recalled by mourners as a man of many talents: a strong Christian, a beloved friend, dependable work colleague and a gifted singer whose uncle said had aspirations of becoming a politician in his native country of Saint Lucia.“The sound of gunshots did not have the resonance to be heard on our small island, but their impact was of nuclear proportions,” Jean’s uncle, Ignatius Jean, told mourners. “A nuke had been unleashed on our family by someone charged to protect and serve.“Our prince royal was snatched from us by the quick-to-trigger finger of one trained to protect and serve,” he said. “Perhaps the good that might come of this violent, heinous act will be that those who are trained to serve and protect will serve love and peace, and not violence and bullets.”Jean was killed a week ago today when Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger mistook his apartment for her own and shot him when she opened the ajar door of the unit and saw a “large silhouette” that she thought was a burglar, according to an arrest warrant affidavit made public this week.Guyger, 30, was arrested and charged with manslaughter, but Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said a grand jury will decide the ultimate charge, and she has not ruled out seeking a murder indictment.Earlier Thursday, the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office released video of Guyger behind bars in handcuffs and jail attire. She does not speak during the video and was later released after posting $300,000 bond.“Botham Shem Jean was not a silhouette,” Dane Felicien, a family friend, said at Thursday’s funeral at the Greenville Avenue Church of Christ, in the Dallas suburb of Richardson. “Botham Shem Jean was a fine man. And Botham Shem Jean deserves to be with Jesus.”Felicien received a standing ovation from the crowd when he said, “We as Americans, as humans must turn away from the incivility that has rotted away at our interactions. Re-embrace the heart that God has put in us for love, not hate, and not overreacting with deadly force.”The funeral service was attended by Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, the city’s police chief, Renee Hall, and numerous state senators and representatives.Several busloads of students and former classmates of Jean from Harding University, a Christian liberal arts college in Searcy, Arkansas, where Jean graduated in 2016, also attended the service.An a cappella group from the school called the Good News Singers, where Jean was a member, stood in front of his casket and performed several gospel songs as Jean’s parents, Allison and Bertrand, watched from the front row along with their other children, Allisa Charles-Findley and Brandt Jean.Many of Jean’s colleagues from PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services firm with an office in Dallas, where he worked as an accountant and was known by his nickname “Bo,” also filled the church pews, including the company’s U.S. chairman and senior partner, Tim Ryan.“I’m honored to pay tribute to Bo in his memory with all of you, for you are the people who loved Bo and the people that Bo loved the most, and especially to Bo’s family. I am amazed by your strength and I am in awe by what an incredible young man you raised,” Ryan told mourners.He said at the start of the funeral service that 55,000 employees of PricewaterhouseCoopers around the globe were simultaneously holding a moment of silence for Jean.Ryan read several of the “title wave of messages” he had received about Jean from his colleagues.“One said, ‘Bo is a man of great joy’” Ryan said. “One said ‘that Bo’s smile was contagious and you could not be unhappy in his presence.’ One said, ‘Bo encompassed the best in humanity in a smile, in a hug, and with his friendship.’ And several said, ‘Bo was somebody I could look up to.’ And one summed it up best listening to the words today: ‘Bo always looked for the best in situations and in people.’”Jean will be buried in Saint Lucia.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

COSCO Shipping Holdings’ Shareholders Okay OOIL Takeover

first_imgThe shareholders of COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. passed special resolutions at the extraordinary general meeting held on October 16, approving the takeover bid of Orient Overseas (International) Limited.The takeover offer was made in July this year when COSCO Shipping Holdings and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) placed a pre-conditional voluntary general offer to acquire all issued OOIL’s shares at an offer price of HKD 78.67 (USD 10.07) in cash, totaling in USD 6.3 billion.On completion of the transaction, COSCO would hold 90.1%, while SIPG would hold 9.9% of OOIL.Now that the COSCO Shipping Holdings’ shareholders gave the green light to the approval, the bid is dependent on the necessary regulatory approvals.The latest approval comes on the back of the clearance received from State‑owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) in September.The combined entity, if the merger is completed, would become the world’s third largest container carrier, according to shipping consultancy Drewry.Specifically, the duo would have a combined fleet of 400 vessels operated over a much-expanded network, with the capacity exceeding 2.9 million TEUs including orderbook, pushing CMA CGM from its spot.As informed earlier, COSCO Shipping and OOIL, parent of OOCL, would continue to operate under their respective brands, and would continue to work together as members of the Ocean Alliance.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Celtic emerge champions, Hearts relegated as Scottish season ends

first_imgCeltic have been declared 2019/2020 Scottish champions for a record-equalling ninth successive season by the Scottish Professional Football League, while Hearts were relegated.This ending came after the clubs voted on Monday to end the Scottish Premiership season early because of the COVID-19 pandemic. “The SPFL has today announced that, following consultation with all 12 top-flight clubs, the Board of the SPFL has determined that the 2019/20 Ladbrokes Premiership has been concluded with immediate effect,” the SPFL said in a statement.“The decision means that Celtic are crowned 2019/20 champions and Hearts have been relegated to the Championship.”When the season was stopped in March because of the pandemic, Celtic were 13 points clear of Old Firm rivals Rangers, who had a game in hand.Also, Hearts were four points adrift at the bottom of the standings.Places were decided on a points-per-game average. Hearts said they were still considering legal action, saying they had been “unfairly penalised” because of the pandemic.In a statement, the Edinburgh club said they would be submitting a member’s resolution offering a “pragmatic solution” to the issues the game is facing.Hearts believe there is an appetite for a restructuring of the Scottish leagues.“It is our belief that this resolution, if supported, will provide an opportunity to avoid disproportionately disadvantaging – financially and otherwise – any club,” the club said.“This is possibly the final chance for our game to stand together, protect each other and not only survive but flourish in the aftermath of this terrible pandemic. “As previously intimated, the club has been taking legal advice throughout this process and is continuing to do so.“We hope that the resolution being prepared will avoid the need to go down this route. Legal action will be both time consuming and expensive.“However, the cost to the club of relegation will outweigh these considerations.”Last week Scottish clubs failed to support a request by Rangers for an independent investigation into SPFL’s handling of the season in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.RelatedPosts Joe Aribo out of Super Eagles friendlies Injury blow for Aribo, Leon Balogun Celtic given tricky tie in UEFA Champions League qualifiers, Red Star drawn away The resolution was backed by Hearts and Stranraer.It was put forward after serious misgivings about how a previous vote on the SPFL’s plan to end the lower leagues early, and possibly the Premiership too, was carried out.The SPFL executive committee last week met all 12 Premiership clubs about declaring the season over.Media reports had it that relegated Hearts had made a final push for a revamp of the league structure.Scotland’s three lowest tiers were ended immediately in April, with positions also decided on a points-per-game average, although the door was left open for a resumption of the Premiership.That has now been ruled out.Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers were declared winners of the Championship, League One and League Two respectively.The SPFL released end-of-season payments of over 1.8 million pounds ($2.18 million) to clubs to ease their financial burden.“We will all have rather seen the league season played out on pitches, in stadiums and in front of supporters,” SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan said.“COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on sports competitions around the world and the repercussions will be felt for a long time.”Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell dedicated the club’s title, their 51st, compared to Rangers’ 54, to the fans.“I am so proud of our team and proud of you for all you have given us,” he said on Celtic’s website.“While we rightly celebrate this fantastic, deserved achievement, we must take time to consider the wider circumstances we have all been experiencing.”Celtic also won nine league titles in a row from 1965 to 1974, a feat matched by Rangers from 1989 to 1997.Reuters/NAN.—Tags: CelticHeartsScottish Premiershiplast_img read more
