Sitting on a scenic lot of about 1 acre in a wooded neighborhood outside NYC, this single-family house consists of 5500 SF of a primary living area, plus a fully finished basement and a three-car garage.  The program consists of a large eat-in kitchen, formal dining and living rooms, a media room, a study, a large master suite, three children’s bedrooms, a family room, and a guest bedroom.  The 3000 SF conditioned basement compliments the primary living spaces, incorporating an expansive children’s play area, a media center, and a small gym. Save this picture!© Peter MurdockRecommended ProductsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWindowsRodecaAluminium WindowsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Peter MurdockThe house addresses the suburban setting in a thoughtful manner.  The distinctive public facade is shaped by tightly configured circulation zones, which run parallel to the street and are defined by a series of planar façade manipulations. The street facade presents itself frontally to the street but addresses entry from the driveway with a dynamic canopy that provides shelter from the previously paved parking area.Save this picture!South SectionWhile the entry façade is planar in nature, the rear façade is animated with a more dynamic relationship between indoor and outdoor living areas. This side of the house is defined by a double-volume transparent cube and several more solid volumes which provide a more ambiguous relationship between indoors and out.  A free-standing outdoor dining pavilion further blurs this distinction. Save this picture!© Peter MurdockThe rear terrace extends the occupancy of the house beyond the home’s interior to the site at large. The property is unified from front to rear through a clearly defined axis that runs perpendicular to the entry façade and runs from the street to rear of the property, linking the house and its site from front to back. Just as the envelope of the house is expressed with great intention in order to unify the spatial sequences of indoors and outdoor spaces, the horizontal planes that define the roof and floors are purposefully punctuated with openings to unite the house from top to bottom.  Save this picture!© Peter MurdockThe roofline of the entry sequence is separated slightly from the front façade, helping to modulate the front plane of the house with shadow and unexpected light, while a cutout in the roof-plane provides a glimpse of the sky above. Similarly, the interior open stair, which is capped by a large skylight, pierces the interior of the house with a three-story space that brings natural light into the center of the house.  The dynamism of the stair is increased by the quality of light that changes over the course of the day and the year.Save this picture!© Peter MurdockThe complex spatial relationships between adjacent living areas are rendered in a more minimal architectural vocabulary and palette, expressed in stucco, wood screens & cladding, stainless steel rods, and window planes and cut-outs that define the volumes. Walnut floors and porcelain tiles in variations of grey define the ground planes. Natural light and shadow are purposefully manipulated with the large planar openings, while the exterior façade is dappled and softened by tree-filtered daylight. Save this picture!© Peter MurdockProject gallerySee allShow lessSergei Tchoban: Den-City – Urban LandscapeExhibitionWorld’s Longest Prestressed Concrete Bridge Nears Completion over Panama CanalArchitecture News Share Photographs Other Participants:Caroline Edwards, Joy Wang, Aries LangCity:MamaroneckCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess Specs Area:  9000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895934/mamaroneck-house-spg-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSPG ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMamaroneckUnited StatesPublished on August 30, 2018Cite: “Mamaroneck House / SPG Architects” 30 Aug 2018.

first_imgMcDonald workers in the first strike by fast food workers in Iowa’s history, Jan. 28, 2016.Des Moines, Iowa — Over 70 community members gathered in Polk County, Iowa, on June 28 to hear speakers Paul Iversen from the University of Iowa Labor Center and Peter Fisher of the Iowa Policy Project “myth-bust” common lies against raising the minimum wage.The event was hosted by Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, which launched their Fight for $15 campaign in April 2015 during a national day of action that spread through 226 U.S. cities coast-to-coast.In January 2016, Iowa CCI helped organize the first strike of fast food workers in state history. According to Iowa CCI organizer Emily Schott, two things are clear: “$15 an hour is what it takes to make ends meet in Polk County, and job loss as a result of a higher minimum wage is a myth.”Peter Fisher backs this up: “Most families in Polk County need to earn more than $15 per hour just to pay for basic needs.” Iowa’s minimum wage of $7.25 has remained stagnant since 2008, and since then the cost of living has “grown exponentially.” (iowapolicyproject.org)Workers are encouraged to continue the fight by attending the Minimum Wage Task Force meeting at the Polk County Administration Building, Room 120, on July 14 at 2:30 pm.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgIrfan Khan / Los Angeles Times via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — The suspected Thousand Oaks gunman was carrying seven high-capacity, 30-round magazines when he stormed the Borderline Bar & Grill earlier this month, authorities said. The magazines are illegal to buy or possess in California but easy to attain in neighboring states.Twelve people, including a sergeant with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, were shot dead at the bar on Nov. 7, allegedly by 28-year-old Ian David Long.Long burst into the bar at about 11:18 p.m. and immediately started shooting, armed only with a Glock .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol he legally bought in 2016 at a Southern California gun shop, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said at a news conference Tuesday.Long also had a folding knife, the sheriff said, but no other guns were found in the suspect’s home or car. Long fired over 50 rounds during the massacre, hitting 13 people, Ayub said.He also threw multiple smoke grenades, Ayub said, contributing to the chaos as bar-goers tried to hide or flee, some jumping through windows to escape the carnage. Long positioned himself for the arrival of law enforcement, according to the sheriff. He took his own life with a single bullet to the head, authorities said. Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, was wearing body armor when he was shot multiple times and died, authorities said. Five of the seven magazines were found fully loaded after the suicide, the sheriff said. All of the victims died quickly from one or more gunshot wounds, said Ventura County Medical examiner Dr. Christopher Young. Many gunshots were fired from close proximity, Young said, and there was no chance for survival. One person was stabbed in addition to suffering multiple gunshot wounds, he said.There is no information to suggest any bar-goers were hit by law enforcement gunfire, Young added. Meanwhile, the suspect’s motive is unclear.Long posted to Instagram while inside the Borderline Bar and his social media activity is being analyzed, authorities said.Long had frequented the bar before but the owner did not know him, authorities added.There’s no indication of radicalization, said Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the Los Angeles FBI office.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Read full article Has “normal business hours” become a thing of the past? These days, I rarely meet anyone who almost immediately following waking up in the morning, wont grab their phone from the bedside to check their email, or who considers their nights to be personal or family time, which not so long ago seemed the norm. What is it about modern day issues and work problems that are more important than those that we were facing years ago that can’t wait until the next day? Or is it a simple case that our ability to prioritize is being depleted due to such ease of systems access which allows many organisations’ staff to turn any computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device into a make-shift work station?I’m as guilty as the next person of the late night emails and struggling to switch off but I’m one of the lucky ones who enjoys what I do enough that it doesn’t feel like a chore. What about those who aren’t as lucky and feel like they don’t have the pressure release of being able to go home and un-wind?Human nature dictates that if we get too used to something, it becomes habitual and we begin to expect it. This being the case, if this isn’t carefully managed, how long will it be before being “switched on” at all times is an expected part of a job as opposed to it being a sign of an engaged and happy employee who will strive to go above and beyond any contractual obligations? Don’t get me wrong, the huge emphasis which these days is placed on interoperability and mobility of internal systems of course is a great thing and phenomenal feat in technology advancement but with it comes the potential for more risk, more pressure and more un-happy staff if it is not managed well.center_img Does business hours mean all hours?Shared from missc on 9 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

first_imgThe surge in pent-up demand that many within the industry had predicted would take place once the housing market re-opened has become a reality.Rightmove says its website experienced a 45% jump in visits yesterday following the government’s announcement on Tuesday that people could move home once more.The portal also says email enquiries about viewings increased by 70% and that agents listed 2,115 new properties during the first five hours of trading yesterday.But Rightmove has tempered this promising revival in activity with a warning that it may take agents several weeks to adapt their businesses to the new health guidance for branch operations and viewings.One agent, Maurice Kilbride (left) in Cheshire, made the point succinctly on Twitter this morning: “Estate agents, I know we are all keen to reopen but please stop, think and consider carefully your social distancing policy before carrying out any actions.“We must continue to keep our distance and or suffer the consequences of another lockdown.”Rightmove’s Housing Market Expert Miles Shipside, said: “Home movers who have been eagerly waiting to take their plans to the next stage should show some patience with agents given the unexpected announcement, to ensure there’s time to adapt to the new guidelines and everyone is kept safe.”People were already ramping up their home moving plans before the government’s decision to re-open the housing market, Rightmove claims, prompted in part by Boris Johnson’s speech on Sunday urging some parts of the workforce to return to work. maurice kilbridge Rightmove Miles Shipside May 14, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentGraham Davidson, Sequre Sequre 14th May 2020 at 8:50 amTalking about percentage increases really doesn’t mean much. 45% up on what?
