The project includes three different volumes: a two-story main residence with a single-floor structure facing a private garden; a dependance making a whole front northwards; a covered pool concealed from bordering buildings to the west. A large basement links all three elements and, by creating two underground patios, serves as a multipurpose space, including a large wellness area.

This is designed as a large transparent tub and makes the heart of the whole project at all seasons, by day and night. The texture of exposed concrete reproducing the larch wood ceiling and the movement of water constantly contribute to create little vibrations, inside and outside.Save this picture!© Massimo CrivellariThe facades of the main residence were coated with large ventilated concrete panels, finished with absolute-black granite chip and anthracite pigment. The pattern of these continuous panels is broken by glossy black granite slabs and polished aluminum frames, whose aim is to lighten the huge weight of the facade by way of mirroring slabs and surfaces capable of reflecting the sky and the trees.Save this picture!© Massimo CrivellariIn addition to outside views, all areas in the house entertain a special relation with the landscape of the property, so that a strong introversion is maintained with respect to the neighborhood.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessCity Works: Provocations for Chicago’s Urban FutureEventRebollar Complex / SANTOSCREATIVOS + E85Selected Projects Share “COPY” Italy Architects: GEZA Area Area of this architecture project DC House / Geza Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/403584/dc-house-geza Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGEZAOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUdineHousesItalyPublished on July 25, 2013Cite: “DC House / Geza” 25 Jul 2013.

Horned Frogs notch Red Raiders at home 62-61

first_img Previous articleStudents visited from Keimyung University and Sookmyung Women’s UniversityNext articleHorned Frogs get bounce-back victory against Midwestern State Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Facebook Facebook printTCU snuck past the Texas Tech Red Raiders Tuesday night in Fort Worth after sophomore Alex Robinson Jr. hit one of two free throws with 1.4 seconds left to give the Horned Frogs their one-point advantage.The Horned Frogs are now 6-5 and in fourth place in the Big 12. The six conference wins are their most in five Big 12 seasons. It is also the latest in a Big 12 campaign that TCU has been over .500 in conference play. The win also gave the Frogs their first three-game winning streak in five seasons of Big 12 play.The Horned Frogs are now 13-3 at home.“The win puts us in fourth in the Big 12, and it’s good but not enough,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “We’ll go forward from here.”Robinson Jr. was fouled from behind on a drive to the hoop after it appeared that Robinson may have slightly lost control of the ball. The Red Raiders and Horned Frogs had disparate views on the game’s final whistle.“In my opinion, I think the game should go to overtime and let the players decide the outcome,” Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard said.TCU players and coaches alike were united on whether not the officials made the correct call.“Absolutely,” sophomore JD Miller and freshman Jaylen Fisher said when asked if the foul call at the end of the game was correct.Dixon didn’t have the same vantage point as his players on the court.“Alex was right in front of me so I could really see it,” he said. “We got fortunate on the drive there, but we have to get better at some things.”Once Robinson went to the line, his teammates were confident the results of his trip.“I knew we won when I saw him going to the line,” Fisher said.The Frogs hurt themselves with turnovers. They gave away the basketball 21 times, 12 more than Texas Tech’s nine turnovers.However, TCU countered the turnover disadvantage with a rebound advantage, out-rebounding the Red Raiders by seven, 35-28.“Out-rebounding them by seven made up for the turnovers pretty quickly, especially in a one-possession game,” Dixon said.Fisher’s career-high 17 points were another reason for TCU scoring one more point than Texas Tech. His 17 points put him in double figures for a third straight game and 13th time on the season. TCU is now 12-1 when Fisher scores in double figures.“I just haven’t been as offensive-motivated,” TCU guard Fisher said. “I’ve been putting everything in my defense because the better the defense the better my offense.”Another key contributor was TCU sophomore forward JD Miller, who was 4-of-4 on 3-point attempts to give him 11 three’s in the last five games after not having any in the previous six games. The four 3-pointers equaled a career-high set at Kansas State earlier this season.Miller hit a three-pointer with three seconds left in the first half to give TCU a one-point advantage at the break, 30-29.“It kind of turned us up a notch,” Miller said. The Horned Frogs now 14-1 when ahead at the half.TCU’s next game is in Waco on Saturday against the Baylor Bears. Tipoff is set for 1 p.m. Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

This year’s court will be announced October 4.Then, just a little over two weeks later, will come the special moment when one of the Princesses will be crowned the 99th Rose Queen.To participate, applicants must be unmarried young women with no children who live in the Pasadena Area Community College District. Candidates must also be a senior in high school or a full time college student that hold at least a 2.0 GPA, be at least 17 years old by December 31 but not older than 21 before January 5, and be able to commit to about 100 Royal Court appearances if chosen.The first round of the tryouts will take place Saturday, September 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m and Monday, September 12 from 3-5 p.m. at the Tournament House at 391 South Orange Grove Boulevard.The first round of interviews will only ask 250 applicants to return, while the second will bring back 75. The third round will narrow it to 25, and the next will determine the seven members of the Royal Court.During the first round, no questions will be asked of the candidates. They have 15 seconds to make good first impressions in front the committee, who are looking for applicants who possess the right combination of academic achievement, confidence, public speaking skills and overall personality. It’s important to note that the selection process will not be treated as a beauty pageant.The 99th Rose Queen, who will be chosen out of the seven members of the Royal Court, will be selected on October 20th, well before the 103rd Rose Bowl and the 128th Rose Parade which both take place on January 2.Those who wish to apply can pre-register for the 2017 Royal Court Tryouts by submitting an application at www.roseparaderoyalcourt.com.center_img Community News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published.

Senior industry figure Nick Leeming steps down from Belvoir board

As well as his work for Belvoir, Nick has been Chairman of Jackson-Stops since 2013 and been a regular judge for The Negotiator’s industry awards.Nick, who says he is retiring from his position at Belvoir, will step down on 10th April and be replaced by another industry stalwart, Michael Stoop (pictured, left).Michael has an equally gold-plated and long-standing career within the industry having helped establish Belvoir’s franchising rivals Winkworth and TPFG, and in July last year returning to Winkworth in an advisory role.“On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Nick for his considerable contribution since the Group floated on AIM,” says Michael Goddard, Chairman of Belvoir.“I am delighted to welcome Michael to the Company and am sure his deep understanding of franchising as well as the property sector will be a great asset to the Group. The Board very much looks forward to working with him.”Michael Goddard will now replace Nick Leeming as Chairman of Belvoir’s Remuneration Committee and also become a member of its Audit Committee.The 62-year-old also has several other key industry connections including roles at Agents Giving, The Property Ombudsman and proptech firm Sorbet HQ. Michael Stoop Nick Leeming Belvoir TPFG Zoopla March 26, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

St Hugh’s fines cross the line

first_imgA series of fines amounting to over £2000 issued by St Hugh’s has provoked outrage among many members of the JCR. The fines have been collected by the college authorities for rule infringements this term involving smoking indoors, bringing guests into college, theft, having vomit in a bin, and vandalism of college property.In Freshers’ Week, two first year students were fined £150 each and banned from the college bar for a term for urinating in a bush. Later in the week, the college imposed further punishment after finding out that police had issued a caution to the same two students for what was described by one St Hugh’s fresher, who wished to remain anonymous, as “horsing around with some bikes in town.”The offenders were issued with a further £300 fine, a year-long ban from the college bar and the threat of immediate rustication for any future offence. The eventual punishment came after over two and a half weeks of meetings. The issue was referred from the Dean to the Disciplinary Committee and finally the Junior Proctor, who allegedly called the offenders “idiots” and “arseholes”, and told them that they did not deserve to be at the University.This was one of several incidents incurring fines that were recounted to Cherwell, most of which have happened since third week. They concern largely, but not exclusively, members of the first year. Most of our sources wished to remain anonymous for fear of recriminations within St Hugh’s.In another incident, two freshers were fined £100 each for stealing signs from Wadham, which were returned to the college within an hour.One of the students was fined a further £100 for vandalising his staircase. This involved depositing seven slices of mouldy bread in front of a friend’s door, leaving cigarette butts lying around and creating a mess on his own door that he cleaned up the next morning. A second year student was fined £200 for smoking in her room and playing music at 10.50pm, when neither of her neighbours were present. “I was hardly creating a ‘noise disturbance’ to other members of the college,” she told Cherwell. There were also reports of group activities, such as conversations and watching films, being stopped by members of the decanal team. Many within the college feel that the measures have been too strict, with one first year student saying “we feel our own independence is being infringed upon.”One of those who have been fined told the Cherwell that he believed such punishments to be “highly disproportionate”. He said that he resented above all the lack of “room for discussion” over the punishments. “Any response given to the dean was considered an act of rudeness.“At times I was simply accused of things that were not the case, andwhen I tried, as politely as I could, discuss this with him, I was shouted at,” he added.Others have felt that there is a behavioural problem in St Hugh’s this year – with incidents such as windows being smashed – and that all punishments were administered in line with college rules. “I don’t feel any of the fines have been arbitrarily dished out and all have been perfectly justified,” said one third-year student.“Those first years that have committed serial offences need to get a life and realise that all this does is give their year a bad reputation.” An email titled “Advice from the Dean” sent to all members of the JCR by First-Year Rep Tom Meacher warned, among other things, of the implications of breaking the law by smoking indoors.“I must warn you that the dean takes this extremely seriously,” Meacher wrote, “as, if a member of the college staff complains (for example a scout who cleans your room) through their trade union, the college would not have a leg to stand on in court and would be liable for a fine in the tens of thousands of pounds.”Sebastian Stain, one of the Junior Deans, told Cherwell that the college regulations have not changed since last year and that he felt that the increase in decanal activity was due to “the behaviour of some people in the first year.”“The measures are completely appropriate,” he said. “Everything is in line with the college and university regulations.”The “dramatic increase in decanal activity” was raised in a JCR meeting on 7 November by second-year students Annie MacIver and Shanna Martens. In their proposal they expressed concern that the punishments were having “an entirely adverse effect” and had “increased hostility to the decanal team”. The motion noted that the decanal team does “a valuable and essential job,” but also declared that “students have the capacity and maturity to be aware of each other.”It continued, “we believe it is unnecessary to discipline students for activities that can be shown to not inconvenience others, for example listening to music or watching TV late at night, having ensured that neighbouring students are not working or sleeping.”The read more

University under fire for “Orwellian” guidance report

first_imgOxford University has faced criticism for a Trinity term newsletter published by the Equality and Diversity Unit, which warned against racist micro-aggressions.According to the report, this “subtle, everyday racism can appear trivial. But repeated micro-aggressions can be tiring and alienating”.The piece, entitled ‘Everyday Racism’, went on to say that racial micro-aggressions may include not making eye contact or speaking directly to people, as well as “not believing someone is British” by making jokes or drawing attention to their accent.Dr. Joanna Williams, a lecturer in higher education at the University of Kent, said the guidance was “completely ridiculous”.Speaking to The Telegraph, Dr. Williams said: “Essentially people are being accused of a thought crime. They are being accused of thinking incorrect thoughts based on an assumption of where they may or may not be looking.”The Daily Mail gave the story a provocative headline: “Avoiding making eye contact or asking where someone is from are signs of RACISM says Oxford University in new snowflake row”.The article included comments from Professor Frank Furedi, who said the advice was “Orwellian” and urged Oxford to “wake up to reality”.He added: “To go from simply stating someone is racist based on what they say to assume they are unconsciously racist is a very Orwellian turn. Micro-aggressions empower the accuser to say that it doesn’t matter what you intend by that look, I just know by the look of your eyes you are racist.”Femi Nylander, a campaigner with Rhodes Must Fall, reacted to the coverage from the newspapers: “We have become used to seeing reactionary articles from these publications, which decry the genuine grievances of minority students as simply the cries of a snowflake generation.”Nylander’s criticism comes after Balliol College’s University Challenge team decided to “ethically boycott” the Daily Mail.An Oxford University spokesman told Cherwell: “The Equality and Diversity Unit works with University bodies to ensure that the University’s pursuit of excellence goes hand in hand with freedom from discrimination and equality of opportunity and the newsletter is one way of advising and supporting staff towards achieving these aims.However, the University have recently apologised for the newsletter.In a series of tweets, the University replied to criticism: “We made a mistake. Our newsletter was too brief to deal adequately and sensibly with the issue.“We are sorry that we took no account of other reasons for difference in eye contact and social interaction, including disability.“Oxford deeply values and works hard to support students and staff with disabilities, including those with autism or social anxiety disorder.”last_img
