Perched between ocean and pond, Field House almost appears to allow the landscape to run through it. Acting as both an extension of its surroundings and as a shelter from it, the house is conceived with flooding and wind in mind. Field House is constructed on piles and is comprised of a steel frame clad in durable mahogany, with anodized aluminum framed windows and doors, and high density limestone.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneThese are all recyclable materials intentionally chosen for their low maintenance in this harsh but beautiful setting. The lower level opens up to the limestone clad pool on the pond side, and to dune grass and ocean to the south. Overhangs and operable screens limit heat gain during summer, but allow for the warmer rays to penetrate through in winter. Less than 5 thousand square feet, the house offers a myriad of ways to experience the setting, from the second stair bridge in the double height entry and living room to lower level rooms that open up completely to become covered outdoor porches. A robust revegetation program allows the building to become an extension of the natural landscape that it inhabits.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneThe house is approached through a loosely terraced set of stairs, bypassing the elevated pool, which at the entry level functions as a water element allowing the sound of water running over the edge to signify the arrival. Yet once up at the main level entrance, the pool and surrounding decks are screened through vegetation and low walls, providing the area privacy and the uninterrupted view out to the pond beyond. The moment of arrival at the entry takes you straight through the main space and out to the ocean ahead. Once inside, pending the space, there is either oceanfront, or pond views, with some spaces acting as an open bridge between both. The lower level is composed of a main living room open to an offset dining area both ocean facing. The separated kitchen opens up to the pool terrace and pond view, literally with a large sliding window that allows for an old school concession counter relationship between kitchen and terrace. Adjoining the kitchen is a glassed in eating area enclosed by retracting glass doors. Throughout the lower level, limestone walls function to contain, guide, and define various areas. On the ocean front terrace the wall becomes a container, housing a gas fireplace and various cabinetry for outdoor entertaining.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneSave this picture!1st Floor PlanSave this picture!© Matthew CarboneThe east wing of the house functions as guest and family bedrooms on both floors. Conservative in size, each forges a relationship with the exterior through floor to ceiling glass, properly screened, again to avoid heat gain as much as possible. The second floor bridge connects the children’s’ bedrooms to the master suite and a sitting room with a glass corner.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Matthew CarboneThe interior palette matches the exterior, with the limestone extending through out the main level and reappearing as solid blocks in bathrooms. The intention throughout is to reinforce rather than detract from the natural beauty of the surroundings.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneProduct Description. This is a steel structure with wood infill. The siding is African Vertical grain mahogany. Door and window frames are anodized aluminum. Valders Limestone from Wisconsin used throughout inside and out. The stone is used landscape elements such as the pool and spa and the surrounding terraces. It continues through the inside main level of the house reinforcing the indoor outdoor relationship.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneProject gallerySee allShow less50 Downloadable Digital Joints For WoodworkingArchitecture NewsUK National Audit Office Presents Findings Pertaining to Heatherwick’s Garden Bridge…Architecture News Share CopyHouses•United States Architects: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects Area Area of this architecture project Landscape Architects: “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStelle Lomont Rouhani ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUnited StatesPublished on October 11, 2016Cite: “Field House / Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects” 11 Oct 2016.

Point values are awarded for each successfully completed target. The team whose device accumulates the most points becomes the winner.Twenty-one student teams from 16 high schools in Southern California are competing in the challenge. They were invited to the JPL Invention Challenge based on results from two regional contests held in November.Three teams composed of JPL engineers and scientists are also in the competition.While the contest rules change each year, the goal is the same – to give students an opportunity to be creative and have fun with math, science and engineering.One of this year’s requirements is that devices must be initiated by a single action by the team’s operator for each launch of the playground ball – e.g., cut a string, flick a switch, pull a pin, etc. No human power may be used during the initiation of the device.The length and width of the device are limited to 2 meters or 6 feet 6 inches. The devices must also be made from non-toxic, safe materials.Trophies are divided into two categories: one for JPL employee/family/contractor entries, and the other for school team entries. Certificates will be issued for the largest, smallest, lightest, heaviest, most unusual, most artistic and most creative designs.The event is open for public viewing at the JPL Mall Area, at 4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine.For more information, visit HerbeautyThat Sale Made Kim A BillionaireHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTiger Woods’ Ex Wife Found A New Love PartnerHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyShort On Time? 10-Minute Workouts Are Just What You NeedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Limerick groups react to rise in violence against children

It normalises these behaviours and puts the children in an extremely vulnerable position,” she said.Women’s Aid director Margaret Martin, said domestic violence is a serious crime that remains hidden and minimised.“In 2012, women told us on 3,230 occasions that their children were being hit, including with household items, smacked, constantly shouted at, and in some cases, sexually abused,” she said.“Children have witnessed their pets being abused, kicked and thrown against walls.“At times, the perpetrator of the abuse has deliberately targeted the children as a way to hurt both them and their mother.”The charity warned that the more severe the violence against the mother, the higher the risk of abuse against the children in the home.The report found that six out of ten had been living with abuse for more than six years and only 7 per cent of women got support in the first year of an abusive relationship.Ms Martin revealed women reported being a prisoner in their own home, spat on, slapped, kicked, held down and strangled and beaten with household items, with some beaten and raped during pregnancy.To contact ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services in Rosbrien call 1800-200-504 Facebook Suffering in silence last_img read more

Freshmen make use of playing time

first_imgThe Trojans not only have the great fortune of opening up their season against two teams from the Sun Belt Conference, but also the pleasure of playing both of those games at home. Props to Steve Sarkisian for pulling this one off, especially because the remainder of the team’s schedule should prove to be rather grueling.These first couple of games actually remind me a lot of my feelings toward certain colored Starburst candies. No disrespect to the Sunbelt Conference, but home matchups against Arkansas State and Idaho are analogous to the pink and red Starbursts — the ones that you wish you could have more of, but run out quickly so you have to settle for the most undesirable colors like the orange and yellow ones.After Saturday’s game, the team’s season will be filled with these orange and yellow Starbursts that signify road games at Arizona State, Oregon and Notre Dame.The reason I use this candy analogy in order to demonstrate the Trojans’ rigorous schedule is because of the large bundle of young and raw talent that this year’s USC team possesses.Twenty three players made their debuts in a USC uniform last Saturday and 13 of those players were true freshmen. Many of them didn’t only play, but made impact plays at their respective positions.Freshman tailback Ronald Jones, backing up Tre Madden in place of Justin Davis, rushed for 86 yards and took one 44 yards for the first touchdown of his USC career. Fellow freshman running back Aca’Cedric Ware also found the end zone.Even young defenders got theirs as freshman linebacker Osa Masina recovered a fumble off a backwards pass and took it back 46 yards for a score.It was also great to see Cameron Smith become the first true freshman to start an opener for USC since Riki Gray in 1978, in addition to Iman Marshall seeing a significant amount of time at defensive back in his freshman debut after Adoree’ Jackson went down.These freshmen have made the most of their playing time in these first two “gimme” games because they’re going to need all of the confidence and experience they can get heading into the rest of the season.Just about the same time last year, USC marched undefeated into Boston College, fresh off a big win in Palo Alto against Stanford.Victimized by a lack of depth, the Trojans broke down in Beantown and were upset by the Eagles, which appropriately set the theme for the team’s season — not being able to finish games.I specifically remember watching cornerback Jonathan Lockett, then a true freshman, being thrown into the game, given the absence of Josh Shaw, and having a great deal of trouble covering Eagles receivers in the second half.Now that Sarkisian has his depth, he needs to make sure that his “fabulous freshmen” are ready to be thrown into these type of hostile environments later in the season.Recall another group of fabulous freshmen in the early 1990s when the University of Michigan’s “Fab Five” took the nation by storm when they reached the 1992 and 1993 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship.As a unit, USC’s freshmen won’t have to bear the same responsibility that the “Fab Five” did, but it’s important for them to realize that with all of the hype they’ve received ever since their class signed with USC, also comes an expectation to perform.It seems like this group of freshmen has passed the test so far through just one game, but it has a whole season still to show why they were one of the best recruiting classes in the nation.The Trojans Pac-12 title hopes could very well fall on these freshmen, and it’s important that they are ready for the spotlight.Darian Nourian is a senior majoring in print and digital journalism.
