Text description provided by the architects. Located in the town of Shikaoi-cho in Hokkaido, this house was built for a husband and wife couple and their child on the same plot of land as their parents’ house. Although the space that divides the house from the neighboring building is unusually large – almost inconceivably so for an urban downtown setting – the site does not offer a good, unobstructed view of the vast natural expanse that surrounds the property.

Save this picture!Floor PlanThis partially split-level house consists of approximately 1.5 layers (for a total height of 4100mm). The large porch space, which is continuous with the entrance hall, functions as a kind of buffer zone dividing the house from the outdoors, offering its inhabitants a gentle, gradual transition towards the interior. Save this picture!We felt that certain adjustments were necessary to prevent this sort of single-roomed space from creating a monotonous impression. Although the living, dining and kitchen area is located along the south-facing side of the house, it is also situated uncomfortably close to the street that runs just alongside the building. As such, we decide to punctuate the wall with a scattered assortment of windows in various shapes and sizes instead of creating a single, large window. These openings offer the inhabitants multiple functions and meanings – varied glimpses of the sky through each window, a momentary peek at the landscape outside, or the ornamental touches that adorn the storage shelves. Save this picture!Wooden louvers were installed over the large open windows facing east-west not in order to cut the building off from its exterior, but rather to create a loose sense of connection to the outside. Save this picture!Sections and ElevationCentered on a traditional Japanese doma dirt floor area, this house promises to bring family members closer together, receive friends with ready hospitality, and create a sense of easy connection to the local community.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessBeton Hala Waterfront Center proposal / Djordje AlfirevicArticlesExhibition: (IM)PURE, (IN)FORMAL, (UN)BUILTArticles Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/144061/hgcnh-house-code-architectural-design Clipboard Japan “COPY” Architects: Code Architectural Design Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses CopyHouses•Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/144061/hgcnh-house-code-architectural-design Clipboard HGCNH House / Code Architectural DesignSave this projectSaveHGCNH House / Code Architectural Design Save this picture!+ 16 Share Year: HGCNH House / Code Architectural Design 2009 “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeCode Architectural DesignOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on June 18, 2011Cite: “HGCNH House / Code Architectural Design” 18 Jun 2011.

Canadian-owned Maple Leaf Foods has announced fourth-quarter results for 2007, which revealed an 11% increase in Bakery Product Group sales to $393m (£200m) up from $355m (£180m) in the last quarter of 2006.The group does not separate out the earnings of its UK divisions. In the past two years Maple Leaf has acquired five UK businesses: the Harvestime bakery in Walsall in 2006, Avance (UK) and the French Croissant Company in December 2006, La Fornaia in August 2007 and the Bernard Matthews bakery in Dunstable in November 2007.Adjusted operating earnings for the year rose 16% to $116.7m. Maple Leaf’s report said: “In the UK, the benefits of price increases were not sufficient to offset the impact of higher input costs and investments in promotion and advertising. However, these headwinds were offset by the positive contribution of acquisitions and organic growth in bagel and other speciality bakery categories.”The company expects to see continued growth in the speciality and bagel markets.Marketing and innovation director Guy Hall said the firm will launch new products in its New York Bagel range this year.Hall added: “The general sentiment would be that we’ve had stable economic conditions for 10 years but in the last 12-18 months it has been turned on its head. What the future holds we cannot say. We’re into choppy and uncertain waters. If we’ve got one overriding concern it’s the cost of price increases coming into the business.”Maple Leaf has negotiated price rises with its customers, including the major retailers, he added.
A woman was arrested on Sunday morning for allegedly scalded a woman with hot water in downtown West Palm Beach.Police responded to 101 South Clematis Street just before 9:30 a.m. in reference to a female harassing a worker.Officers discovered that the victim was working at a waterfront event and was unloading a truck when she suddenly felt an excruciating pain on her back.Upon turning around, she saw a woman, later identified as 56-year-old Andrea Clarke, with a cup in her hand walking away from her.The victim says Clarke never spoke to her and adds that the attack was completely unprovoked. She was taken to a local hospital and suffered first and second-degree burns, which will likely cause permanent disfigurement, according to officials.After Clarke acknowledged her Miranda Rights, she told officers that she was walking down Clematis Street with a cup of hot water when she saw the victim unloading the truck and threw the hot water on her back.Clarke did not provide a reason as to why she threw the hot water, stating only that her head told her to do it, so she did.She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and charged with one felony count of aggravated battery.Clarke is from Kingston, Jamaica. Her current address is listed as “at large” on the arrest report.
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Originally ruled in play by third-base umpire Jim Reynolds, Nunez legged out a triple. After a quick replay review, however, the ball was ruled a home run, making Nunez responsible for both of the Giants’ runs in this series. In Monday’s game, he beat out an infield single against Clayton Kershaw, stole second, went to third on a wild throw by Yasmani Grandal and scored the Giants’ only run on a wild pitch.Still handling Hill with caution, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts pulled him after five innings and 77 pitches, pinch-hitting for him in the bottom of the fifth. Tuesday was Hill’s second consecutive start on regular rest (four days off), something he hadn’t done since early July when a blister on his middle finger ripped open.That 1-0 lead seemed to be in serious danger when Cueto left the game in the sixth inning. He left runners at first and second – how could he not? That was standard through the first six innings.As Cueto hobbled off the field, Giants manager Bruce Bochy stepped into his personal torture chamber and waved to the bullpen. He was smart enough to choose a left-hander (after right-hander George Kontos had mistakenly trotted halfway to the mound). Steven Okert struck out pinch-hitters Yasiel Puig and Kike’ Hernandez, running the Dodgers to 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position.Bochy stuck with Okert and another left-hander, Will Smith, to keep the shutout intact into the ninth. The Dodgers are now 16 for 125 (.128) with 45 strikeouts against left-handed pitchers over their past 12 games.But the Giants couldn’t hold onto a 1-0 lead in the ninth inning again – Brandon Belt made it 2-0 with a home run in the top of the ninth. The Dodgers, meanwhile, still have that five-game lead and a magic number of seven to clinch their fourth consecutive NL West title. The Dodgers only have themselves to blame for failing to suck any more magic out of the Giants.Cueto’s scoreless start resembled Madison Bumgarner’s dominant seven innings from a night earlier in only one way – the string of zeroes on the scoreboard.The Dodgers had nine baserunners in the first five innings – two at a time in four of the five innings. But none even got as far as third base. A double play short-circuited things in the first inning and the Dodgers went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position against Cueto.Rich Hill followed a similar template. He allowed hits in four of his five innings and added a walk in the fourth inning to load the bases with two outs before freezing Brandon Belt for a called third strike.But Hill also gave up a long drive to Eduardo Nunez with two outs in the fifth inning. Nunez’s fly ball clanged off a camera mounted on the left field wall at the bullpen gate. LOS ANGELES >> The San Francisco Giants have begun to resemble the Black Knight from Monty Python’s Holy Grail. They’re losing parts. But they’re not dead yet.Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, they lost shortstop Brandon Crawford to a dislocated finger on his left hand, injured as he was being thrown out at third base in the second inning. Then they lost starter Johnny Cueto to a strained groin muscle while he was spinning a shutout in the sixth inning.But they still managed to do something they couldn’t do Monday night – make a lead stand up. They handed the Dodgers a 2-0 defeat.The Giants moved to five games back of the Dodgers with the win. But more realistically, they stayed in the thick of the National League wild-card race, moving into a three-way tie with the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals.
