Summerhill House / Boyd Cody Architects

Two aspects of this field interested us, the tall Hawthorn hedge that divided it and the uninterrupted views that opened up beyond the hedge, west to the surrounding landscape. Our clients needed a large house but they were interested in how to be architecturally restrained within a rural context. They also saw divisions in their home life between entertaining, working, sleeping and relaxing. The design of the house and site addresses those needs. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapThe house consists of two distinctive slipped parallel forms; a more traditional long pitched slate clad timber framed ‘house’ which contains the main living rooms and a lower rendered concrete block bedroom wing. One form is double height and black, the other white and single story; one is seen from the road the other is hidden by the hedge. Both however share expansive views across the field and beyond. The house is placed parallel to the existing hedge and the field around it is manipulated through level, wall, path and surface for different uses related to home and family. There is a terrace, sunken and raised lawns, paddocks and a yard of black tarmacadam, its colour matches the slates on the house. A large elevated solarium or terrace is located over the bedroom wing the level of its balustrade determines the height of the hedge. Save this picture!In this country house, we wished to explore the spatial character of vernacular and modern architecture. Externally the forms are simple, its materiality and details are restrained. The garage is carefully placed to form a farmyard or simple cluster on site and internally too the kitchen/living/dining room can be read like the one shared room common in the traditional Irish cottage. Alongside this spatial interpretation is a modernist exploration of abstracted plastic form in nature, of horizontality and the continuous transparency of windows and door to form inside and outside living space.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Opera House / Zaha HadidArticlesVideo: BIG’s Website as Presentation ToolArticles Share Save this picture!+ 21 Share Architects: Boyd Cody Architects Area Area of this architecture project Ireland “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBoyd Cody ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSummerhillIrelandPublished on February 24, 2011Cite: “Summerhill House / Boyd Cody Architects” 24 Feb 2011.

The neighborhood is characterized by the presence of constructions that consolidate the morphology in the frontal limits of the properties. At the same time, the bases of the contest contemplated two possibilities that come of from the regulations: the first was to use the setback area as it is and the second was to build in the whole area with agreement (not to exceed the heights of the adjacent constructions). Based on these two alternatives, the first project decision is to conserve the predominant morphology so the second option is chosen.Save this picture!© Elías Martínez OjedaSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Elías Martínez OjedaThe implantation responds in the first instance to these guidelines. At the same time, the housing program is divided into two volumes whose activities could be distinguished as social and intimate respectively. These volumes are stacked one on top of the other to release the ground and create expansions to the outside that counteract the limited projections to the sidewalk. The social area is the one that touch the ground and also is separated from the edge of the property to avoid the restrictions that the ochava (chamfer limit) could impose to the interior space organization. Additionally, the corten steel shell appears to generate the boundary with the public space along the entire perimeter. The disposition of the ground floor allows to concentrate the service areas below the other volume encouraging to conceive the rest of the property as a single exterior space that is crossed by the living-dining area. A good orientation of the intimate area volume is considered a priority, therefore the bedrooms are projected to the northeast to get a favorable sunlight. The outer areas roofed below this volume are used for the for the main access, the garage and the secondary access.Save this picture!© Marcos GuiponiProject gallerySee allShow lessYagan Square / Lyons Architects + iredale pedersen hook architects + ASPECT StudiosSelected ProjectsGewers Pudewill Unveils Competition-Winning Proposal for Vertical Folding Tower in B…Unbuilt Project Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897041/rifa-house-ge11-maria-ines-garcia-plus-maximiliano-garcia Clipboard Area:  2066 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeMaría Inés García + Maximiliano GarcíaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMontevideoUruguayPublished on July 04, 2018Cite: “Rifa House Gen.‘11 / María Inés García + Maximiliano García” [Vivienda de Arquitectura Rifa Gen. ‘11 / María Inés García + Maximiliano García] 04 Jul 2018.

Classic Trade Show Draws Thousands

first_img Facebook Twitter As for what the acreage mix will be, Jeffries says we may see more bean acres because of recent drops in corn prices, “I had had a few growers tell me they may switch to acres to soybeans, but for the most part I think guys will stay with their rotation.” By Gary Truitt – Feb 28, 2013 SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Classic Trade Show Draws Thousands A record breaking 6,000 farmers are attending Commodity Classic in Orlando this week. When not in business or educational sessions, Classic attendees are walking the massive trade show.  With planters set to roll in about 30 days, the focus of talk at the trade show is on what spring weather might be. Chris Jefferies, with Seed Consultants, says the Eastern Corn Belt moisture is good and should be enough to get a corn crop in and up, “While a lot can still happen before planting begins, in general we have had enough recharge to get the crop off to a good start.” He told HAT he is more concerned about high temperatures, “If we can avoid the extreme heat, we have enough moisture to grow corn.” He added, however, that many Seed Consultant customers opted for hybrids with traits to manage drought stress, “We introduced two new AqaMax varieties 1083 and 1094, and a lot of guys wanted to hedge their bets by choosing hybrids with the drought tolerant trait.” Previous articleCall for Infrastructure Improvement at Commodity ClassicNext articleSeed Consultant 3/1/2013 Morning Comment with Gary Wilhemy Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter As for seed supply Brad Newell, with Channel, serving Southern IN, says there is plenty of seed for last minute orders, “If anyone calls me right now, I can fill their needs with high quality seeds.”  He says, while last year’s drought did impact seed production, most seed companies have adequate supply for the 2013 crop.

Chancellor looks to US to help drive up productivity

first_img Comments are closed. Chancellor Gordon Brown has signed a new agreement with his US counterpartto help drive up UK productivity and make British universities moreentrepreneurial. Brown, along with the US treasury secretary John Snow, promised to sharebest practice on productivity by setting up a forum to discuss the challengesand achievements of both nations. The forum will meet next year and look at how to improve productivity in theUK, with the low level of worker skills and poor use of IT topping its agenda. Brown said skills creation was crucial in providing economic stability andensuring growth within the UK economy. “We are investing more in education and workplace skills than at anytime in history, and I hope we can strengthen the skills partnership betweenGovernment and business,” he said. It will also investigate ways of improving the knowledge economies, with anemphasis on solving the shortages of science, engineering and maths graduates. The pact will instigate more collaboration between UK and US universities bybuilding closer links, sharing technology and swapping professors. Cambridge University and MIT have already agreed to link up on an initiativeto look into productivity, while other UK universities will now be able toapply to the Government to fund similar projects. Brown also promised to fight unnecessary European bureaucracy by invitingcompanies to put some rules, such as the Agency Workers Directive, to the ‘isit really necessary’ test. The joint UK-US enterprise agreement also aims to strengthen transatlanticbusiness – which already stands at more than $2.5 trillion – by liberalisingtrade rules. Brown also said it could lead to an extra $100m and one millionjobs. Related posts:No related photos.
