Located in Bainbridge Island, Washington much of the Dorsey Residence is hidden behind a two-story concrete face, however its interior spaces reflect a different experience of warmth, light, and openness. Architects Coates Design created an 18-inch concrete wall that forms two sides of the home’s exterior. These walls provide a poignant counterpoint to the warm wooden and copper box that rests at a slight angle to take full advantage of the site’s water and mountain views. The concrete exterior wall and exposed concrete within the home reduce energy costs by serving as a thermal mass that naturally cools the home in the summer and holds warmth in the winter.Save this picture!sectionEach room within the home was carefully designed to take advantage of views, provide comfort to the occupants, and an appealing style. With only a small buildable area available on the site, the home was designed to maximize the footprint through the use of vertical space which also takes advantage of the spectacular views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains to the West. The close proximity to the street is softened by native landscaping and a stone gabion retaining wall. The back facade of the home has an abundance of windows, which illuminate the interior livable space, maximizing the spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and the water. The main living opens out onto a large deck that cantilevers from the home’s structure, providing a seamless connection from inside to out.Save this picture!Courtesy of Coates DesignThe kitchen offers a beautifully crafted bar designed with caramelized bamboo, gloss laminate, and a three-way mitre corner. Visually hidden in custom built cabinetry in the pantry next to the kitchen are the refrigerator, washer and dryer, and wine cooler which save space and provide a clutter-free kitchen.Save this picture!floor plansThe interior of the home is well-lit, with clear glazing making up nearly all of its view to the backyard and Puget Sound. The stairs, lit by a large skylight above, are made of customized blackened steel and the wood was milled from a tree previously located on the property. With 12-foot-tall ceilings, the three-story home leaves an indelible sensation of openness and inspiration with all who visit.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Ark / RemistudioArticlesAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XXIXArticles Share CopyAbout this officeCoates Design: Architecture + Interiors | Seattle ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBainbridge IslandSustainabilityHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 14, 2011Cite: “Dorsey Residence / Coates Design: Architecture + Interiors | Seattle Architects” 14 Jan 2011.

In order to build a house the client has bought the last empty plot at the Ploče quarter in Dubrovnik. The steep site is of irregular shape, and it was divided with a road by the change in land zoning plans. The house is set on top of the plot with a wonderful view of the Old City and Lokrum Island, while the lower part is intended for a great and lush garden. Save this picture!© Damir Fabijanić The project task was to design a house for parents and their adult children with their families. Therefore the plot contains two objects. One, a two storey object for parents, and the other, made up of two apartments for the children and their families. In this way, three residential units were formed. A shared outdoor space is inserted between the two houses – a terrace designed for socializing and family gatherings that connects instead of separating them. The pool is in front of the parents’ house, sunken under the terrace level so it does not block the view from the living room. The garage spaces are located right next to the road and hidden from view by the slope of the plot.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanićOne of the main house features is the white facade constructed from local stone from the quarry Visočani, cut into 8x120cm “sections”. The façade whiteness is underlined by slits of large continuous glass which provide wonderful views of the city to all living areas and bedrooms, while the bathrooms and kitchen are located in the interior of the house. The only one that deviates from this rule is the parents’ luxurious bathroom on the first floor which also overlooks the city and Lokrum through a large glass wall. The smaller house is pulled out towards the garden area to allow greater privacy, and the children’s house façade is broken to ensure more privacy to the sleeping and living areas.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanićA simple combination of materials is complemented by natural wood pergola beams connecting the two houses. The natural wood is also used as a floor covering and for the garage door panels. Wooden furniture in all three units is custom made to maximize the space and underline minimalism in colors and materials.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAre LEED Skyscrapers Our Biggest Energy Hogs?Architecture NewsIs NYC “Landmarking Away” Its Future?Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/408292/house-u-3lhd Clipboard Architects: 3LHD Area Area of this architecture project 2012 CopyAbout this office3LHDOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDubrovnikHousesCroatiaPublished on July 31, 2013Cite: “House U / 3LHD” 31 Jul 2013.

MLP holds first multinational assembly in Guatemala

first_imgOn Dec. 29, representatives from Guatemalan Indigenous peoples and social movements gathered in Santo Domingo in the Suchitepéquez department of Guatemala for the first “plurinational assembly” of the Movement for the Liberation of the Peoples (MLP). The assembly elected an executive committee.MLP is an initiative begun by the Peasant Development Committee (CODECA) and backed by the Indigenous communities where CODECA and other social movements operate. Last November, MLP was registered for the 2019 presidential elections. However, CODECA has insisted: “What’s being built is not another party, but a political instrument called #MLP, to propel the plurinational STATE and good living.” (tinyurl.com/y7gkx5sl)The proposals from the plurinational assembly will be taken back to regional meetings for further debate.Objectives and methods of the MLPIn the nearly two months between MLP’s registration and the first plurinational assembly, there were a series of regional assemblies to determine MLP’s priorities. In addition to the regional assemblies, there was a national meeting of MLP youth.The MLP’s proposals include lowering public officials’ salaries and renouncing parliamentary immunity, a practice which has been at the center of the recent anti-corruption struggle.MLP is also proposing the nationalization of privatized services; recovery of lands, territories and water for human consumption; and the creation of a Popular and Plurinational Constituent Assembly in order to create a plurinational state with autonomous Indigenous regions.Motivation for building a plurinational state comes from the experience of Indigenous peoples during the nearly 200 years of the Republic of Guatemala. At the plurinational assembly, CODECA human rights defender Thelma Cabrera explained: “They keep us like slaves, they keep us on our knees; if we defend our rights, we are called terrorists; if we defend the mother Earth, they offer us bullets, if we protest, they call us thugs.” (tinyurl.com/ybgbop82)The assassination of Indigenous and peasant leaders was another theme of the assembly. It is another reason MLP is advocating for the construction of a plurinational state. Vicenta Jeronimo said during the assembly that the Guatemalan Peace Accords were paper agreements only: “They keep killing us with hunger, they offer us bullets when we defend the rivers, the mother Earth, our children die fleeing from poverty.” (tinyurl.com/y82q98jp)Throughout the assembly, speakers reiterated that it was the communities  that were uniting behind the MLP and that is where the drive for the plurinational state and demands for social changes needed to originate.Migration and the plurinational stateIn recent weeks at least two Guatemalan children have died in detention centers on the U.S.-Mexico border. Last May, a Border Patrol agent shot another Guatemalan, Claudia Patricia Gómez González. All three, just like many Central Americans who are crossing the border, are from Indigenous communities.In Guatemala, Indigenous peoples have always suffered the worst poverty and violence, from genocide during the civil war to the ongoing killings of defenders of the land and of human rights.Today, the foreign funds that come into Guatemala, supposedly for economic development, are used to build new mines and other environment-destroying projects. The big companies steal land to build these projects and criminalize any communities that protest. In this sense, the “development” imposed by foreign investment is nothing more than the continuation of colonialism.The same starvation wages in the big plantations and in the foreign-backed projects drive many people to migrate. The MLP opposes these projects. The Guatemalan oligarchy promotes racism against Indigenous peoples. This racism and the corruption of the traditional imperialist puppet politicians block any solution to the migration crisis. At the same time President Donald Trump threatens to halt U.S. aid to the country.The only solution for Guatemala is to “break the fences of the CACIF plantation” (CACIF is the organization of big guatemalan businesses) and empower the communities and peoples of the country.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Student is remembered for the lessons he taught friends

first_imgTwitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin printA senior sports broadcasting major and former TCU football player known for his commitment to improve and help others died April 17; he was 21.Reginald Cole, “Reggie,” to his friends, was born in Dallas, the only son and oldest of two children. Cole’s body was found in a grassy field in the 100 block of South East Arlington Street. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office. Cole, a walk-on Horned Frog running back from 2017-2018, spent his time at TCU as a sports commentator. He also volunteered at HOPE Farm, an organization that works to develop the leadership skills of at-risk boys who do not have a positive male role model at home.Timeka Gordon, the director of the of Office of Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services and the Community Scholars program, met Cole when he was a finalist for the Community Scholarship at David W. Carter High School.“Talking to young people and coaching young boys in football was where you could watch Reggie’s ‘masterpiece of care’ come alive,” Gordon said. “He was engaging, compassionate and thoughtful in his approach and advice to young people. He talked from his experiences, and it made him relatable.”Cole and Gordon are pictured together the summer before his first year at TCU at Bridging the Gap, a program for incoming Community Scholars. (Photo courtesy of Timeka Gordon.)Gordon said she misses Cole’s hugs, smile and conversations. He embraced her as a mother figure, she said, adding the most valuable lessons she learned from Cole are to keep moving and never make excuses.Cole’s best friend, Courtnee Avery, said he taught her to take any opportunity to be better.Avery said she had known Cole since elementary school and when she heard about his death, she went into shock.Avery and Cole are pictured above in 2016 at the David W. Carter High School Athletic Banquet. They were both awarded athlete of the year. (Photo courtesy of Courtnee Avery.)“The first person I called was my mom,” she said. “I stuttered over my words and as she was trying to make sense of what was happening, I pleaded for her to just listen and absorb what I was saying. My mental could not process anything. It still can’t.”To honor his life, people drove by Cole’s high school in a parade and later released balloons, maintaining social distancing. Gordon provided a purple graduation cap, gown and tassel, a Community Scholars Medallion, a class of 2020 Community Scholars photo and a black kente stole to Cole’s family.“Reggie was loved by many in the community and at TCU,” Gordon said. “His legacy will live on through the seeds of care he planted in the lives of all those who knew and loved him.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history + posts Drew Mitchell is a Journalism major with an African American Studies Minor from Arlington, Texas.

SPCA donor hopes to inspire more giving with annual pet supply haul

first_img Jim Bouderau unloads sacks of cat litter from the Lockers’ haul. (Photo provided by Lynne Conway) Jim Bouderau unloads sacks of cat litter from the Lockers’ haul. (Photo provided by Lynne Conway)About 50 percent of the SPCA’s annual donations come in during the holiday season, according to Boudreau. Big donations like Locker’s go a long way toward helping make ends meet during the busy summer and fall months.“We rely on the generosity of the community to do what we do,” Bouderau said.While big gifts have a big impact, Bouderau emphasized that small gifts are essential to the SPCA’s work too.“People might think small donations don’t help,” Bouderau said, “but we totally need it, we totally use it, and we totally appreciate it.”He said donating could be as simple as picking up an extra pack of paper towels while at the grocery store or an extra jug of laundry detergent. Every donation of supplies helps free up revenue for priorities like providing veterinary care and hosting spay and neuter clinics, which serve about 2,000 animals each year.For Locker, the choice to give to the SPCA is simple. “We’re animal lovers,” she said.Fellow animal lovers can find a list of items the Tompkins County SPCA urgently needs on their website, as well as information about how to volunteer.

They’re adorable, playful and eminently adoptable, but they’re also hungry and messy.For about four decades, Jutta Locker has brought an annual holiday haul of food, toys, cleaning supplies and treats to help knock some items off the SPCA’s wish list. Each year, the pile of gifts seems to get a little bit bigger.This year, Locker and her daughter Jessi brought about 1,200 cans of wet dog food along with heaps of Kong chew toys, treats like biscuits and Cheez Whiz, sacks of cat litter, and an array of cleaning supplies. In addition to the $2,300 contributed by Locker, the donation got a boost from Lilley’s Tack and Feed in Dryden and Ithaca Grain and Pet Supply.Related: Ithaca woman donates about 1,200 cans of dog food — a yearly traditionJim Bouderau, the Tompkins SPCA’s executive director, said the canned food would cover about six months of demand, supplemented with dry kibble donated by Hills Science Diet Pet Nutrition. last_img read more
