Chamfer House revisits a post and beam dwelling designed in 1977 by Kevin Borland. It sits within an established garden on Oliver’s Hill, a crucible of late modernism overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Our clients approached us soon after moving in. They wanted to protect the timber structure and ceilings they loved, while also updating the house to suit their young family.Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andrew LatreilleOur intervention assumed a strategy of sensitive infiltration. We touched every room, some more heavily than others, yet retained the house’s core personality: the romantic rationalism that characterised much of Borland’s later work. We unkinked the plan, pulled back a touch on the 1970s psychedelics, and reconfigured the living and sleeping areas to better connect with the garden.Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andrew LatreilleWe sought to build on the juxtaposition of structural rationality and romanticism, layering a rational spatial sequence with an exploded interpretation of the chamfer. A device used regularly by Borland, we developed it into a three dimensional form that operates from the macro scale to the micro. The faceted balcony soffit framing the view from the master bedroom is one example, as are the repetitive triangular motifs in our customized joinery hardware.Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleProject gallerySee allShow lessLandscape as architecture / João Gomes da Silva and Paulo DavidSelected ProjectsBrandon Haw Unveils Plans for University Building in ColombiaUnbuilt Project Share Chamfer House / Mihaly SlocombeSave this projectSaveChamfer House / Mihaly Slocombe Photographs Australia CopyAbout this officeMihaly SlocombeOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionMornington Peninsula ShireAustraliaPublished on July 31, 2016Cite: “Chamfer House / Mihaly Slocombe” 30 Jul 2016.

This project in the Wakamatsucho section of Tokyo’s Shinjuku district transformed an office building into shared housing, where residents have private bedrooms but share common areas, kitchens, and bathrooms. Although the neighborhood is located near universities and busy shopping streets, it has a peaceful atmosphere all its own. When designing a shared house in this area, we gave particular consideration to the type of people who might gather and live there.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaShared housing has proliferated in Japan in recent years, primarily drawing residents who seek interaction with their co-inhabitants as opposed to the cheaper rents that typically attract people to shared living arrangements in Western countries. For a project in this particular type of neighborhood we envisioned a harmonious, cultured environment in which individuals with similar interests and tastes would gather and inspire one another. The forms and colors of the building are designed to create opportunities for this type of interaction.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe existing entryway was left almost unchanged, while the building’s four levels were clearly divided according to function, with the first and second floors serving as private zones, the ground floor as a public zone, and the third rented out as offices independent of the shared house. The circulation plan allows residents to access their own rooms without passing through the public zone, which means that they are able to choose between spending quiet time individually or interacting with other residents even though they are living in a shared house. Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe interior design employs basic geometric forms, with circular furnishings and light fixtures on the first floor and square ones on the second floor. On the first floor, which is close to the ground, green is the key color, while on the second, which is closer to the sky, it is blue. These differences, we hope, will allow potential residents to select a room near others who share similar tastes, loosely connecting them once they move in. However, in recognition of each residents’ individuality, the colors of the bedroom interiors and doors vary slightly in intensity, representing the differences that exist between individuals despite their similar tastes. Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe ground-floor lounge is designed around a theme of lines connecting one individual to another. It is composed of a kitchen, dining area, shower room, and other shared spaces that serve as sites for interaction. Vertical, linear lights hang from the center of a ceiling covered in metal mesh, symbolizing people gathered together. A large table where people can sit together, window-side counters, low tables, sofas, and a tatami mat area provide choice in how and where to sit within this public zone.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Takumi OtaProject gallerySee allShow lessWynyard Walk / Woods BagotSelected ProjectsCall for Papers: Issue N. 22: The Role of History in an Architect’s TrainingEventProject locationAddress:36-13 Wakamatsuchō, Shinjuku-ku, Tōkyō-to 162-0056, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.

I’ve been humbled by the response from colleagues and friends from across the media industry in supporting me to run the 2010 London Marathon.“I can’t imagine how hard it must be for a child to speak out about abuse, but a call to ChildLine can be the first step in turning a child’s life around. ChildLine’s volunteer counsellors are there for any child, 24-hours a day, whatever their problems.”Tom has supported ChildLine, a service of the NSPCC, since running his first London Marathon in aid of the helpline in 2004, repeating the feat in 2006 and 2008, and raising over £80,000 across the three marathons.As well as running marathons for ChildLine, Tom formed the ChildLine20 Board in 2005 to mark 20 years of the UK’s free, 24-hour helpline for children. This group of influential volunteers have so far raised over £2.5m in cash, through events such as the annual ChildLine Ball and film premieres of Pirates of The Caribbean and Quantum of Solace, and donated over £1m in gifted media space to help promote the charity’s work.Tom Toumazis continued: “Thank you to every single runner in the team for their commitment and everyone who has helped us to raise an amazing £75,000 for ChildLine. I’m looking forward to us all crossing the finish line safely, and handing over a great big cheque to ChildLine’s founder Esther Rantzen.”Anyone with a place in the London Marathon 2010 who would like to run for the NSPCC should call on 020 7825 2621 or email [email protected] office on 020 7825 2516.Notes to editors:1.

Shutting down St. Louis mall for justice, Nov. 28.Photo: Al OsorioDec. 1 — Resistance and anger over the failure of a grand jury to indict Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown continued over the so-called Thanksgiving holiday, when activists and community members held protests to call attention to the struggle against police brutality and police killings, as well as disrupt the profit-garnering frenzies of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.”A call for actions from movement organizers in Ferguson urged people across the country to perform walkouts on Dec. 1. Using the hashtag #HandsUpWalkOut, the national announcement states: “Our momentum is building and this is just the beginning. Tomorrow [on Dec. 1] we urge you to join thousands of others and walk out of EVERYTHING — jobs, campuses, and schools — at 1:01 p.m. EST/10:01 a.m. PST, the time Mike Brown Jr. was gunned down by police officer Darren Wilson. Congregate with others, remember [the lives of those slain by police] and honor them by working to end state violence.”The Ferguson organizers are also honoring the heroism of civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks with these walkouts. Parks’ refusal to sit in the back of a segregated bus in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955 sparked the yearlong Montgomery Bus Boycott. Their call reads in part: “Nearly 60 years ago today, Rosa Parks engaged in a simple act of civil disobedience that set the stage for a movement against anti-black racism. Rosa Parks showed the world that meaningful actions by ordinary people can make all the difference. She took huge risks for justice. Will you?”Visit fergusonaction.com for more information.On “Thanksgiving” — a day that celebrates the genocide of the Native peoples in the U.S. — protesters on Nov. 27 disrupted the most iconic representation of the holiday, the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Seven activists were arrested after they attempted to break from the designated parade route and disrupt the march of the floats during the nationally televised event. Some 60 others held a sit-in in Times Square.Eighteen-year-old Nicholas, a Harlem resident, told the New York Daily News: “We shouldn’t celebrate Thanksgiving when there’s going to be an empty seat at dinner for the family of Mike Brown. It needs to be known worldwide! So many people come to see the Thanksgiving parade from all over the world, it was important to show them what’s going on. It was the perfect place.” (Nov. 27)New York Police Department commissioner, William Bratton, stated one day before the disruption: “We will not tolerate, under any circumstances, any effort to disrupt this parade. This is a national event, a historic event. Anybody who would seek to interrupt it would be callous, indeed, on this special day.” (nbcnewyork.com, Nov. 26)The next day, actions around the country slowed down the annual shopping day known as “Black Friday.” In Atlanta, protesters against police brutality joined with others at a “Fight for $15” action at an Atlanta Wal-Mart, and then held a die-in on Nov. 29 in the Atlantic Station shopping district.Shutting down transportation and mallsPublic transportation between San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area was brought to a standstill on Black Friday, when activists chained themselves to trains on both sides of the West Oakland Bay Area Rapid Transit platform. The protests raised the failure to indict Darren Wilson as well as the case of Oscar Grant, a Black Oakland teenager who was killed by a BART police officer on New Year’s Day in 2009. The highly strategic action caused systemwide delays since the West Oakland station connects all of the BART train lines except one. Full service was not restored to the system for a full three hours, although protesters had planned to hold the protest for four hours to highlight the fact that Mike Brown’s body was left lying on the ground for four hours after he was shot.Led by Black youth, hundreds shut down the Galleria Mall in St. Louis, a huge shopping center located just eight miles from Ferguson. Activist Bruce Gagnon reports: “As the crowd swelled it took over both floors of the mall and about half of the stores pulled down the security gates to close their shop. Many of the workers inside the stores stood behind their gates and clapped, chanted and filmed the protest. The best moment was when two women in Macy’s uniforms led the rousing chant ‘No Black Friday!’ … Many mall customers were clapping and filming the action with their cell phones. Many actually joined the crowd as we walked through the mall.” (popularresistance.org, Nov. 28) Two die-ins were held during the 90-minute action and, after leaving the Galleria, some activists continued on to protests at other stores in the area.The national Black Friday protests were organized online by #BlackoutBlackFriday, which issued a statement that asserted, “In the wake of #Ferguson, it’s become painfully clear that people of color, and Black people in particular, are still unjustly targeted by law enforcement and the criminal justice system.” (Huffington Post, Nov. 28)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Home Indiana Agriculture News Task Force Wants Antibiotic Resistance Solutions Task Force Wants Antibiotic Resistance Solutions By Andy Eubank – Nov 12, 2015 SHARE SHARE A report on the growing problem of antibiotic resistance in animal agriculture spotlights the need to make finding solutions a top priority. The 14-member Task Force on Antibiotic Resistance in Production Agriculture is composed of agricultural educators, industry leaders, and animal health specialists. The report recommends creating a centralized organization to coordinate public and private efforts to curb resistance. The Center for Disease Control said antibiotic-resistant bacteria cause at least two million human illnesses and 23,000 deaths a year. The financial cost is near $20 billion a year in direct health care costs. The Task Force said resistance not only threatens human health but animal and environmental health too.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleMonsanto Net Income Forecast LowerNext articleUSB Transitions Focus to Promoting U.S. Quality Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter
