The site is on the edge of a village designated as a conservation area. Building within the village proved challenging: the site straddled the settlement boundary and was deemed small and poorly serviced. Featherstone Young adopted a successful two-stage planning approach which demonstrated how building new housing carefully and strategically within villages can prevent the usual linear sprawl extending out along roads, and hence protect and enhance the surrounding countryside.Save this picture!© Brotherton-LockThe principal wing of the house is built off a ‘buffer’ wall of a textured dry stone wall, using the local Clipsham limestone. The site is very exposed, and this provides privacy and climatic protection with its good thermal mass and minimal openings. In contrast, the guest wing is constructed from the same Clipsham stone, but with a smooth ashlar finish and larger windows. Drawing the two wings together is a more refined white rendered wall, crossing diagonally through the house from inside to out. This wall slices the plan into two triangular wings, with each wing pitching its planted green roof in the opposite direction as if the field has been lifted up and the house inserted beneath. The dramatically rising, faceted roof over the main wing begins at one end of the diagonal wall, with the low entrance porch, and culminates in the double-height living spaces at another end, facing south over the surrounding countryside.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© James BrittainThe two-wing design provides a strategy for energy efficiency, whereby only the main wing is heated for day-to-day living, and the guest wing can be opened up only when required, to accommodate up to six people in three guest bedrooms. Internally, a cedar-clad ceiling follows the roof profile, circling over the main living rooms and rising to the highly-glazed south views and double-height spaces of the main wing. The fluid, open-plan design responds to the demands of communal living while retaining a sense of intimacy.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!© Brotherton-LockThe large dry stone wall faces north-west and acts as a thermal buffer. This is countered by large glazed walls and roof overhangs to the south and south-east aspects, which provide a solar gain in winter and abundant natural light and ventilation. The courtyard at the hub of the two wings offers dual aspect and cross ventilation to the principal living spaces, with access from either wing, as well as creating a secluded retreat protected from the prevailing south-westerlies. It leads into a small domestic garden and beyond to a wildflower meadow to the south of the house. The outside spaces have been designed by landscape architect John Dejardin, to complement the playful rising forms of the house.Save this picture!© Brotherton-LockIn response to the client’s love of trees, an eyrie has been created at the highest level of the house, creating an atmosphere of being nestled amongst the treetops. Within the double-height of the main living room, a library and study nestle under the highest part of the rising timber ceiling, commanding magnificent views of the meadow and surrounding farmland.Save this picture!© James BrittainProject gallerySee allShow lessUNStudio Reveals Recent Construction Images of Wasl Tower in DubaiArchitecture NewsThe Architectural League Announces Winners of Emerging Voices 2020Interviews Share Photographs:  Brotherton-Lock, James Brittain Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Structural Engineer: Architects: Featherstone Young Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Burke Hunter Adams United Kingdom Building Contractor: Quantity Surveyor: Year:  2019 Projects in-gine Houseslast_img read more

Candidates announced for Saint Mary’s election

first_imgJanice Chung | The Observer Two tickets announced their candidacy for Saint Mary’s student body president and vice president Tuesday. Juniors McKenzie Johnson and Barbi Prokup hope to deliver “change, communication and community,” according to official campaign materials, while juniors Emma McCarthy and Mary Joy Dingler are campaigning to promote transparency, communication and diversity on campus.The two tickets will deliver speeches today at 5 p.m. in the Noble Family Dining Hall, and elections will be held Thursday. The winning ticket will take office April 1, succeeding current student body president Kaitlyn Baker and vice president Maddie Kohler.McCarthy, a political science major, and Dingler, a humanistic studies major with a concentration in English writing, put a special emphasis on transparency in their campaign.“One thing we really want to work on is publishing office hours [of members of student government],” Dingler said. “Students should be aware of when they can go and talk with every committee chair and the student body president and vice president, to make us more available for students.”The ticket also wants to establish a weekly email to students, similar to the [email protected] emails, McCarthy said. They said they believe the email will help bolster attendance at campus events.“We definitely think we receive too many emails,” McCarthy said. “ … If we send it out every week on a Sunday, students will come to expect it as time goes on. At least once a week, we want to say, ‘Hey, here is what is going on,’ and have each co-chair report their events to the vice president. She will compile it and send it out.”The pair plans to improve the dining experience at the College, Dingler said.“You have to eat,” Dingler said. “Café Spes Unica closes at [3 p.m.] and seeing as there have been more night classes, we think it would be beneficial for it to be open until 5 or 6, just so students have the chance to get dinner, since a lot of times, a lot of education majors do not get a chance to eat because they are so busy every day.”As faculty and staff of the College play a large role in the everyday life of students on campus, the McCarthy-Dingler ticket also hopes to implement a “Thank You Week,” in which students show their appreciation for the work of staff and faculty, McCarthy said.“We have lots of big weeks here on campus, but one that we have neglected is thanking our faculty and staff for everything they do for us,” McCarthy said. “We really want to establish a week where we write cards and show our appreciation for all the work they do to make Saint Mary’s our home away from home.”Similarly, the ticket hopes to continue mental health awareness week and to make online scheduling of counseling services available to students, Dingler said.“We want these resources to be more accessible so that students know that they can go,” Dingler said.Johnson, a business administration major, and Prokup, a finance major, said they will focus on feasible plans in their platform.“We wanted to include things that could actually happen on campus,” Johnson said. “We wanted to be realistic with ourselves — a lot of things on our platform are things we know we can accomplish. They are things that we think are important but also realistic.”The pair plans to address bullying on campus, Prokup said.“There have been girls who have been harassed via door and leaving notes, social media: It has become an excessive problem here on campus,” Prokup said. “We want to create an anti-bullying program that has steps on what we need to do as students to prevent and protect our fellow students.”The program would be run through social media and campus-wide conversations, Prokup said.“We are fully committed to this because it is such a strong problem here that we really want to help combat,” Prokup said. “We would like to hold other events to remind everyone that this is a safe campus where you can be yourself without having to face judgment.”Johnson and Prokup plan to increase attendance at events through a regular email, Johnson said.“Even as someone involved on campus, I never know when sports games are,” Johnson said. “I know I can probably look it up on the website, but if it is not directly presented to me, then I probably will be unaware and not go. … That is something we want to address.”The campaign also wants to promote communication between all aspects of the College, Johnson said.“Communication is such an important things here, especially when it comes to communication between the student body, professors, faculty, the Board of Trustees,” Johnson said. “I think that the position of student body president has really lost that emphasis of being a representative of the student body, someone who has had frequent connections with students, conversations with students.“It is sometimes sad to me that people don’t know who our [student body] president is,” she said. “I really want to address this next year — we want to know everyone, we want everyone to know us.”Tags: saint mary’s, SMC, student body elections, Student Body Presidentlast_img read more

Jamaica contemplates clearing National Heroes

first_imgA debate on a Bill to absolve certain National Heroes and their supporters of criminal liability started in Parliament earlier this week. The legislation – the National Heroes and Other Freedom Fighters (Absolution from Criminal Liability in Respect of Specified Events) Act, 2017, was piloted by Culture, Minister, Olivia  “Babsy” Grange.When passed, National Heroes – Sam Sharpe, George William Gordon, Paul Bogle, and Marcus Mosiah Garvey, as well as their supporters, sympathizers and participants by association, and other freedom fighters, will be absolved of criminal liability arising from their participation in “acts of liberation with moral justification”.Redeem and restore dignity In her remarks, Grange said the objective is to redeem and restore the dignity and integrity of those who suffered much.“Our ancestors were of a pedigree that was not daunted by challenges, no matter how great they were or how seemingly unsurmountable the obstacles.They came to Jamaica shackled and belabored, but within their fertile minds dwelt the militant cultures they had fashioned back home in the various tribal forces of the (African) continent,” she stated.Duty of present generationShe added that it is the duty of the present generation of Jamaicans, who are inheritors of the new life resulting from the self-sacrifice of our ancestors, to take the bold step and correct the wrongs of the past, and restore the dignity and integrity of the cause for which the nation’s forefathers so willingly died.“This Bill gives new life to these, our heroes and unsung heroes, and seeks to redress the wrongs and set the captives free,” Grange stated.In his contribution, Opposition Member of Parliament for Central Kingston, Ronald Thwaites, said the legislation would enable an engagement that is “appropriate and valid in law.”“When law is wrongly applied it must be corrected. There is a legal as well as a moral imperative to enact. We are the highest court in the land, and it is of great importance that we should do what we are doing,” he said.Debate on the Bill will continue at the next sitting of the House of Representatives.last_img read more
