ArchDaily Photographs: StudioGreenBlueText description provided by the architects. This building stands on the borderline between the wheat and the residence area. This is a duplex house where a young couple and their mother live. The living space of young couple and the living space of their mother are divided. But they hope to hear their mother’s voice in an emergency. And they hope to see a field of wheat and hills in their life, too. This house is able to be parted three pieces and piled those pieces. The third floor commanding a fine view is the young couple’s, the second floor is individual room ( bedroom, library, and so on), since there is convenient for their mother, the first floor is hers. A stairwell pierces three floors, but gratings cover the stairwell in each floor. People can join other people in the other floors with sounds through the gratings. The gratings steer the sunlight. The light is turned every times which draws a pattern on the wall. Inhabitants can see that change.

Changing the proportion of stripe, people can have different images in all around. It aims to give feeling such as to stick a print paper on the outer walls. That makes the part not coercive. As the result, the building shade in the scenery, and we can give the building a mild sense.Project gallerySee allShow lessEuropean Architectural Travel PhotographsArticlesVertical Theme Park / Ju-Hyun KimArticles Share Photographs CopyHouses•Takasaki, Japan Save this picture!© StudioGreenBlue+ 18 Share Year: Architects: StudioGreenBlue Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/98500/overlapping-ears-of-rice-studiogreenblue Clipboard Overlapping Ears Of Rice / StudioGreenBlue Japan Overlapping Ears Of Rice / StudioGreenBlueSave this projectSaveOverlapping Ears Of Rice / StudioGreenBlue “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudioGreenBlueOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesTakasaki3D ModelingJapanPublished on December 27, 2010Cite: “Overlapping Ears Of Rice / StudioGreenBlue” 27 Dec 2010.

There are two islands where no people live, called Chagui-do and Wa-do near a small village, Yongsu-ri, located in the west coast of Jeju Island. Staring at these two islands at certain point, they look magnificent and mysterious like a humpback whale in a legend that came up on the surface to take a breath. STAY1METER is located at this certain point.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Lee ByunggeunSave this picture!© Lee Byunggeun1 meter in the name not only means that it is built on 1m high from the ground but also means that the distance of mind to enable a light, pleasant day away from one’s daily life. 1m from the ground and daily life. The name literally states the beginning and the complete space of STAY1METER. STAY1METER embraces a variety of scenery toward all directions. To the west, there are Chagui-do and Wa-do where the sun goes down. To the south, Dangsan-mountain boasts its elegant view. To the east, you can see the Halla mountain from far. In autumn, you also can enjoy the garden of silver grasses making a pearly wave with their flower stands and night sky with the shining stars on the rooftop.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunThe design of the building begins with the consideration of how a house should look like, standing in the middle of a huge field and facing the sea. A horizontal roof is devised not to disturb the beautiful scenery surrounding the house. STAY1METER looks like a boat from a distance, floating around silver grass and wheat field. You can see the sunset clearly and the light fills the every corner of the house.Save this picture!Section 01Save this picture!Section detailA Hackberry welcomes you at the entrance as the symbol of this house. There are two bedrooms at the both ends of this long-oval-shaped 1-story house and each of them is connected to a secret space. the northern side bedroom leads to an outdoor bathtub surrounded by an oval-shaped wall and the southern side one is linked to fully opened outside area. The middle space is equipped with the living room and the kitchen. Especially, it enables to have a cozy space and comfortable view toward outside by lowering the floor of the living room. Since one side of the house, toward the sea, is all glass, the scenery and daily life are naturally blended in the flow of the time and the change of the season, while the house reflects the sunlight and it goes into the surroundings.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunThere are a small swimming pool with the same height of the sea level and an outdoor table with the height of the silver grass. The height, color and texture of the material of outdoor facilities, the garden and even the parking space are planned to make harmony with the surroundings. There is a circular staircase which leads to the rooftop where you can enjoy a panoramic view. All the furniture in this house are produced through collaboration with ‘ByBigtable’. Some furniture combines a lighting and a tray which completes a unique design, only in STAY1METER. The small sea in the garden are made by ‘DewSong Place’, fabric design is done by ‘Milmuah’, technical consulting about lighting by ‘LIMAS’ and the stay is managed by ‘Stayfolio’.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunProject gallerySee allShow lessResidence C / KC Design StudioSelected ProjectsHouse in Tezukayama / Fujiwaramuro ArchitectsSelected Projects Share STAY1METER Homestay / Z_Lab CopyHouses•Jeju, South Korea ArchDaily Photographs Manufacturers: DADA brick, G.A.U Archi Factory, LOOKS, Terraco Korea, Varon Materials Lighting: Projects G.A.U Archi Factory “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936673/stay1meter-homestay-z-lab Clipboard Architects: Z_Lab Area Area of this architecture project Area: 100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Lee Byunggeun+ 27Curated by Hana Abdel Share South Korea LIMAS 2018 Construction: STAY1METER Homestay / Z_LabSave this projectSaveSTAY1METER Homestay / Z_Lab ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936673/stay1meter-homestay-z-lab Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeZ_LabOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJejuOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on April 02, 2020Cite: “STAY1METER Homestay / Z_Lab” 01 Apr 2020.

Linkedin Advertisement Email THIS week, Jennifer Allen guest writes on Food For Thought to tell us about Terra Madre and its connection to Slow Food.“Terra Madre, or Mother Earth day, falls on December 10. But what’s it all about? Terra Madre is one very significant aspect of the Slow Food movement, consisting of a broad, global network of food producers, cooks and experts, who share a passion for preserving food diversity in all its shapes and sizes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up We are becoming increasingly reliant on an increasingly diminished array of foods, with an ever lengthening chain between us and whoever produced those foods. Obviously, from a gastronomic viewpoint, being restricted to a tiny window of generic foods is bland and not very inspiring. But, on a more profound level, lack of diversity can have serious economic and environmental consequences. In the natural environment, if one food fails, there are so many others to choose from, it doesn’t pose any significant risk. If, however, a whole community relies on growing one food, failure of that one crop can spell disaster. Likewise, the more alienated from our food supply we become as consumers, the less control we have over how that food is created and the consequences if our supply is cut off.Rather than lamenting this potentially negative scenario though, let’s shine a light on the wonderful richness of foods we have on our doorstep.A few years ago, two students from the Organic College in Dromcollogher were out strolling and foraging in Springfield, co Limerick, when they came across an apple tree. This tree, with its distinctive very large yellow apples, with some fruits weighing over a pound, was unfamiliar to either of them. They investigated the puckered, ribbed apples further, only to find no record existed of such a variety. A new star was born! Appletown Wonder is now on the list of native apple varieties at Seedsavers in Scariff, along with about 140 others. Add to that 600 heirloom varieties of vegetables, 48 heirloom grain varieties and an heirloom potato collection and you have a stunning testament to the diversity and abundance of wonderful foods available on our doorstep,if we take the time to look after them. And Seedsavers has certainly done that. Founded by Anita Hayes in 1991, Seedsavers main aim is the conservation of Irelands very special and threatened plant genetic resources. Their focus is on the preservation of heritage varieties, suitable for Irelands growing conditions. This is a key Slow Food principle, where local is king. Combine that with the skill and knowledge in cultivating these precious crops which has come from the years of patience and hardwork of Seedsavers staff and volunteers and you see how Seedsavers is the living embodiment of what Terra Madre is all about. Having the flavourful, resilient seeds will only get you so far, after all, without the ability to grow them well. Not alone does Seedsavers provide manuals on the art of seedsaving, it also holds workshops on organic gardening, orchard creation, cheesemaking and beekeeping, skills which have stood us well since the earliest monks embraced them, yet seem outrageously foreign to a generation of die-hard supermarket shoppers.So how can you play your part for Terra Madre? Well, it doesn’t have to involve foraging for heritage varieties of apples, unless you want to, of course. You could support a local grower who produces heritage varieties of food. You could leave the mangetout from Kenya on the shelf and ask your supermarket to provide locally produced vegetables instead. Or you could write to your local TD, asking them to support small scale producers and growers in getting a fair price for their work. Or maybe you want to take a community group on a trip to Scariff to have a look at the amazing work of Seedsavers firsthand. Who knows, some of you might be inspired to join up and get your own heritage seeds to plant. Our future heritage starts now.

LimerickNewsPesticides detected in Newcastle West and Foynes-Shannon Estuary drinking water supplies in Co LimerickBy Staff Reporter – March 18, 2021 184 Previous articlePrimary school student wins competition to design a new Biodiversity Garden in ShannonNext articleUpton scores again as Ireland and Great Britain play out a draw in final game of series Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie FOURTEEN exceedances for pesticides including MCPA, Mecoprop and 2,4-D have been detected in the public drinking water supplies in Newcastle West and Foynes-Shannon Estuary during 2019 and 2020. These exceedances were detected as part of Irish Water’s public water supply monitoring programme. Both water supplies abstract raw water from the River Deel which is vulnerable to runoff from land. Users of any herbicide or pesticide products in the River Deel catchment are being asked to consider the vulnerability of the water supplies to pesticide contamination and the importance of this supply to the local homes and businesses in the community.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The National Pesticides and Drinking Water Action Group (NPDWAG) is asking the farming community, greens keepers, grounds keepers, and domestic users, to consider in each case whether they need to use pesticides at all. Minimising pesticide use not only helps to protect water quality but also has wider environmental benefits. For example, leaving areas unsprayed can help native flowering plant species to grow and support a range of insects including bees and other vital pollinators. One third of Ireland’s bee species are threatened with extinction and by helping the bee population survive and thrive we are also helping to protect our precious water sources. For more information on practical ways to help bees and other pollinators, check out the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan at www.pollinators.ieWhere pesticide use is considered necessary, the NPDWAG is working with the community to ensure that best practice measures to protect drinking water sources and biodiversity are always followed. Farmers and other landholders dealing with the challenge of tackling rushes should note that the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) has developed new guidance on the sustainable management of rushes. The new approach is based on the concepts of containment or suppression, and aims to minimise the use of pesticides. More information on this can be obtained from your local farm advisor or on www.pcs.agriculture.gov.ie/sud/waterprotectionThe efforts to reduce the incidence and level of these detections are being coordinated by the NPDWAG. This group is chaired by the DAFM. All of the key stakeholders are represented in this group and include other Government departments and agencies; local authorities; industry representative bodies; farming organisations; water sector organisations; and amenity sector organisations. Deirdre O’Loughlin, Irish Water’s Regional Drinking Water Compliance Specialist said: “In Co Limerick, the exceedance of the drinking water regulations for MCPA, Triclopyr and 2,4-D were noted in both the Newcastle West and Foynes-Shannon Estuary public water supplies following routine sampling. While our consultation with the HSE has concluded that the levels seen do not represent a threat to public health, it is however undesirable and therefore imperative that users of pesticides are mindful of best practice when using herbicides or pesticides and seek out alternatives.”Adding to this, Dr Aidan Moody, DAFM and Chair of NPDWAG commented: “The continued engagement of all stakeholders, working in partnership, is needed to tackle this issue. Users of pesticides should always consider alternatives in the first instance and if pesticides are essential make sure that they are aware of the best practice measures that should be followed to protect water quality.”Recent drinking water monitoring results for Ireland show that a number of active substances contained in herbicide products used in agriculture, amenity and gardens, such as 2,4-D, fluroxypyr, clopyralid, MCPA, mecoprop and triclopyr, are being regularly detected.If pesticides have to be used, the basic steps to reduce risks to drinking water sources and the aquatic environment are:Choose the right pesticide product (note that products containing MCPA are NOT approved for use in weed-wipers.)Read and follow the product labelDetermine the right amount to purchase and useDon’t use pesticides if rain is forecast in the next 48 hoursMake sure you are aware of the location of all nearby water coursesComply with any buffer zone specified on the product label to protect the aquatic environment. Mark out the specified buffer zone from the edge of the river or lake or other water course and drainage ditchesAvoid spills, stay well back from open drains and rinse empty containers 3 times into the sprayer.Store and dispose of pesticides and their containers properly.Never fill a sprayer directly from a water course or carry out mixing, loading or other handling operations beside a water courseFurther guidance:A video on the best practice use and application of products containing MCPA can be viewed on Irish Water’s YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/xQqtZ7jifUsInformation leaflets on pesticide use are also available to download from the Teagasc website at teagasc.ie/environment/water-quality/assap-farming-for-water-quality/improving-my-water-quality/protecting-drinking-water-from-pesticides/A guide providing 10 easy steps towards responsible pesticide use in public and amenity and garden areas is available at pcs.agriculture.gov.ie/media/pesticides/content/sud/ResponsiblePesticideUsePublicAmenityGardenAreas200217.pdf Twitter Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limerick Email Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post Advertisement WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Print Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Linkedin Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash
