The Bismarck House is the younger sibling of a pair of semi-detached dwellings in Bondi. The design uses raw materials and sculpted spaces to integrate house and garden while orchestrating social interactions between the more public areas of the house and the laneway that runs along the semi’s northern boundary.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Peter BennettsOur conceptual starting point for the project was to map the detailed context of the laneway: a long thin footprint immediately adjacent to the gritty rear-lane access for multiple commercial properties fronting onto Bondi Rd.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsInto this context the ground floor of the house was conceived spatially and materially as a continuous garden between the boundary walls of the site. The brick common wall of the semi to the south was exposed and the new laneway edge to the north was rebuilt using bricks recycled from the site demolition. The garden is formed around key figures within the plan: the kitchen bench, a window seat to the lane, a concrete structural blade wall, a steel cabinet for storage.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!Conceptual Diagram 01The upper level, containing three bedrooms, is conceived as a solid mass that carves voids for light, creating diagonal and oblique viewing lines along the length of the laneway for the bedrooms, thereby moderating potential privacy loss from the rear facades across the laneway. These scoops of light allow the garden to be continuous along the majority of the site length, with the main scoop shaped around a new Bismarck Palm introduced as part of the garden works.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe house is an open, light filled, and flexible dwelling. It has been specifically designed to orchestrate many possibilities and uses, both functionally and socially, while showcasing our client’s capability in construction and landscape design. The house seeks to energize its laneway context, transforming the typical semi typology materially, formally, and socially through its response to the lane.Save this picture!Cross SectionAn over scaled kitchen window with a generous window seat opens directly onto the lane, encouraging conversations between occupants of the kitchen and the laneway – whether with the kids playing in the lane, or people passing by. The upper level of pleated aluminum scoops and curves to create a series of gardens running the length of the laneway, buffering the upper level rooms from the immediacy of the many neighbours across the lane.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsOur brief was to provide a flexible house that could be used as a holiday rental or as a future city house if our clients ever moved away. The house was also to be experimental and original in nature, showcasing Robert Plumb Projects’ building capacity, while also prioritizing the garden, to be designed by Will’s landscape company DBS, as an integral part of the house. The house is a very direct response to these functional and creative goals of our client’s brief.Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeWilliam Dangar (landscape architect/client), brought Andrew Burges Architects, David Harrison & Karen McCartney (interior), and Robert Plumb Build together at the onset of the project. The material palette was honed through close collaboration between all, and with key trades: The pleated screen sits off an insulated, standard colorbond sheet wall, prototyped with the roofer to test window integration and transparency.Save this picture!Laneway ElevationCustom designed, locally made pieces enrich each space: the living room primer-red steel storage unit/wall; bespoke steel doors integrate into raw concrete and brick reveals; crafted timber screens mediate laneway activity; bedroom shelves curve with fine rods tracing overhead.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsRobust materials were chosen for longevity and their suitability for integrating energy efficient heating and cooling. The concrete floor slabs at ground and first levels are the final finished slabs and soffits. Each floor has hydronic heating coil cast in – a long view cost choice. Cost was a major factor, so a limited palette also framed the development of the interiors, supplemented with carefully selected vintage pieces involving many hours and hand selected items collected by David and Karen. We also liked that choosing vintage is a sustainable choice that gives a second life to existing pieces.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe site was chosen for its NE aspect, the proximity of infrastructure and the coast, and the potential for borrowing along the northern laneway. The internal footprint is restrained to enable a continuous garden running along and between rooms, while facilitating cross ventilation between interior and garden. Ventilators channel the NE breeze.Save this picture!Street ElevationGarden courtyards provide privacy and shade, while folded steel awnings and screens protect the glass. The bricks are all recycled from the original structures on site. Each floor has hydronic heating coil cast into the slab: sustained heat in winter and a cool base in summer. Upstairs, the curved external walls are sheltered by a pleated, perforated screen forming permanent shade, (supplemented by the Bismarck palm canopy). The light scoops cut out of the floorplate allow the bedrooms to be oriented diagonally across the lane, and open the site to the north and north east.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe screen, and all the construction, were designed and fabricated through collaboration with local workshops. The garden is both beautiful and hardy. Species are native and/or succulent, with no lawn. It is an extremely low water-intensive green space, including the raised garden bed that shelters the main bedroom from the harshest westerly sun.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Altinho / António Costa Lima ArquitectosSelected ProjectsShanghai Qingpu Pinghe International School / OPEN ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Year:  Interior Consultant: Area:  175 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

To that, Berger noted thanks. “We appreciate Chairman Matz’s leadership and NCUA staff’s efforts to ensure as smooth a transition for credit unions as possible to the new TILA/RESPA requirements.”“NCUA examiners will be looking for reasonable and good faith efforts by credit unions toward substantial compliance with the new rule as of the effective date,” the NCUA chairman wrote. “NCUA recognizes that some credit unions may need time to perform conclusive system testing and work with their technology vendors to resolve any remaining issues that may occur from extensive testing and use, once their new TILA/RESPA mortgage disclosure systems become fully operational on August 1. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The ongoing escalation of the trade war between the U.S. and China is threatening the livelihood of Ohio soybean farmers. Since tariffs were put in place last year, soybean prices have dropped 20 to 25%. The Ohio Soybean Association (OSA) has been fighting against the use of tariffs from the beginning because farmers want to be able to compete in a free market. When they do, they thrive.“This is simply unacceptable,” said Scott Metzger, OSA president and Ross County soybean farmer. “We understand the reasons for bringing China to the negotiating table to address technology transfer and intellectual property issues. However, there are other tactics that can be used to accomplish that without harming farmers and our rural economies.”On May 10, the U.S. increased tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, from 10 to 25%. It is also taking steps for an additional 25% tariff on the remaining $325 billion in annual imports from China. China recently announced its plans to retaliate.“Farmers have been patient and supportive,” said Ryan Rhoades, OSA vice president and farmer from Marion County. “That patience is wearing very thin. These are not hypothetical losses we’re talking about, this is real. This is our livelihood and how we support our families, and the ripple effect is going to touch all of rural America.”OSA and its national affiliate, the American Soybean Association (ASA), continue to support the Administration’s overall goal of negotiating with China to achieve structural changes to the way it conducts trade business. OSA and ASA cannot support the use of tariffs as a tactic to achieve that goal.“We ask the Administration to end this back and forth escalation of tariffs and pursue other options,” Metzger said. “Farmers and the rural economy are not winning right now.”last_img read more

first_imgPUC also pleasedFollowing Wilson’s ruling in district court, the PUC released a statement of its own, pointing out that the decision “confirmed that the Commission acted lawfully and that the decision to protect non-[net -metered] customers from unreasonable cost-shifts was based on substantial evidence.”The only part of the PUC’s December order that was vacated applied to existing net-metered customers, the commission said, “for whom the court found that the commission did not provide sufficient notice.”The court decision did not overrule the PUC’s conclusion that net-metering would unfairly shift $16 million in costs from solar to non-solar customers, Utility Dive reported. The argument that non-solar customers subsidize those who can afford solar panels is a common refrain by utilities in net-metering cases. Some studies, however, have found that utilities understate the value of distributed solar energy. Retail Net Metering Will End in NevadaNet-Metering Survives California TestNet-Metering Is Preserved in KansasMajor Utility Wants Lower Net-Metering RatesWisconsin Alters Net-Metering RulesResidential Solar in Nevada Benefits All, Study SaysMaine Completes Value of Solar Study RELATED ARTICLES Regulators had approved a proposal from NV Energy late last December to triple monthly service charges for solar customers, from $12.75 to $38.51, while reducing the reimbursement rate for excess solar electricity from the retail to the wholesale rate of 2.6 cents per kilowatt hour over a period of four years. But the plan lacked a grandfather clause protecting customers who already had installed solar panels, and both customers and installers were livid. SolarCity and other installers said that they would no longer do business in Nevada, and a group of solar customers filed a class action lawsuit to block the plan.The case in which Wilson ruled last week was filed against the PUC of Nevada by Vote Solar, a solar advocacy group.“This court decision is a win for existing solar customers, although there’s still plenty of work left to be done to bring solar choice and solar jobs back to Nevada,” Jessica Scott of Vote Solar said in a statement posted at the group’s web site. “The court rightly ruled that the PUCN unfairly changed the rules of the game on existing solar customers without due notice. We believe we had a strong legal case for reversing the decision for future solar customers as well and would have appreciated the opportunity to better make that case through oral arguments, which we were not allowed in this case.”center_img Homeowners in Nevada with photovoltaic (PV) systems got some welcome news last week in the form of a unanimous decision by utility regulators allowing them to keep full retail net-metering reimbursements for the next 20 years.The settlement, worked out by the utility NV Energy, the staff of the state’s Public Utilities Commission, solar installer SolarCity, and the state’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, reverses a controversial decision late last year that boosted fixed charges and lowered reimbursement rates for homeowners with PV systems. The settlement deal was approved by the PUC last Friday. It will affect 32,000 solar customers in the state, according to an article posted at Utility Dive.The announcement followed by less than a week a ruling by District Court Judge James Wilson throwing out the PUC’s rate plan for customers who own PV systems. Judge Wilson ruled that the rate plan was a “denial of fairness and due process through inadequate notice.”However, Wilson also found that the changes to net-metering and fixed service charges for new solar-equipped customers were neither arbitrary nor capricious and did not violate the U.S. Constitution. And the settlement approved last week affirms those terms. Deal ends a period of uncertaintyIt’s been a wild year for owners of PV systems in Nevada. After the PUC decision in December, Governor Brian Sandoval created a task force representing the solar industry, regulators, and environmentalists to examine net-metering issues. Then, in July, Sandoval announced he would not reappoint PUC Commissioner David Noble, the regulator who had written the net-metering decision. As Utility Dive reported, Sandoval said that he wanted a “new direction” for the PUC.The decision paid off for the solar industry. Existing solar customers got their rates back, prompting a warm endorsement from the Solar Energy Industries Association.“We thank Governor Sandoval for his leadership and support and appreciate the steps taken by the PUCN to stabilize solar policy,” the SEIA said. “We now must put policies in place that support new solar customers in Nevada so that solar jobs can once again increase, and the robust economic activity associated with solar development can resume.”The agreement, however, doesn’t directly address whether the solar customers who have been paying higher rates, and getting lower reimbursements for excess power, will be reimbursed. And, as SolarCity pointed out, the deal still leaves some solar customers in a separate rate class, with new solar households paying the higher fixed charges and getting lower reimbursements.“The Public Utilities Commission’s decision to grandfather existing solar customers is an important step forward for Nevada, to protect the investments thousands of Nevadans have made in our clean energy economy, and affirms that grandfathering should be the law of the land,” Jon Wellinghoff, SolarCity’s chief policy officer said in a written statement.SolarCity said that the agreement will grandfather all state residents who had applied to install solar panels by the end of 2015. That includes thousands of people who have yet to install their solar systems, and can now move ahead with their plans.SolarCity Deputy Director Chandler Sherman said in an email last week, “Unfortunately, the rules still in place for the rest of Nevada make rooftop solar unaffordable for anyone who wishes to go solar in the future. Solar applications have fallen 99% since the decision (only 176 people have applied to go solar in the past seven months under the current net metering policies, down from about 1,400 per month before the PUC decision), which is not enough customers to sustain the once-booming solar industry. SolarCity cannot restart operations until the state sets solar policies that work for consumers.”last_img read more

first_imgJamshedpur, May 8 (PTI) Following the success of IPL, ISL and IBL, a professional rollball league for both men and women will begin in Mumbai next month, to give this discipline a professional shape in the country. Rollball Federation of India would launch “Maha Rollball League” from June 3 at Andheri Sports Complex, the Federations vice-president Manoj Yadav said here today. India have won Rollball World Cup three times in the mens section and twice in the womens section. Rollball players wear skates and their main objective is to score maximum goals with their hands. Each team consists of 12 players – 6 on the field and as many in reserve. In the league, Yadav said, eight teams in the mens section and six teams in the womens section would vie for top honours during the three-day event. The aim was to give this game a professional shape in the country, Yadav said. The teams would be owned by stars of Marathi film industry and other renowned personalities, he said adding that owners of six teams have already been decided. However, he refused to disclose their names. “The federation is making efforts to rope in big sports personalities like cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli to own teams,” said Yadav, an executive committee member of Asian Rollball Federation. Registration of players for the event have already started and auction of the players will take place later this month. Maha Rollball league would be organised ahead of the first World Rollball league, which was under consideration of the world body, he added. Apart from the Maha-league, the maiden Federation Cup championship will be organised by its Punjab unit in June. PTI BS NN ATKadvertisementlast_img read more
