Seddon House by Melbourne based studio OSK Architects transforms what was a disused inner city car park into a compact family home.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingDesigned for 3 generations of the one family, the form of the building responds to the modest proportion of its neighbouring buildings, from the street appearing as a single storey construction. Save this picture!Diagram“Having the building read at different scales, from different angles, was the real challenge of the project.’’ said Ben Waters, Principal of OSK ArchitectsSave this picture!© Ben Hosking“At first glance the building registers as a simple single storey structure, one that follows the logic of its street context. From the north, you realise a second floor fits within the roof form… the scale of the house opens up as you move around it.”Save this picture!© Ben Hosking‘’The project emphasises the roof as a unifying architectural element. It’s geometry defines the scale and architectural expression of the building whilst controlling light and temperature throughout the year. It collects rainwater, allows for cross ventilation and provides the property with power via an integrated solar system.’’ Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe site is located within a flood zone, and in response the building floats above the natural ground level to avoid inundation. A highly engineered concrete slab is suspended above the landscaping, supported by screw pile footings, raising the finished floor level of the house above 100 year flood levels. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingBuilt for a passionate, creative family who are environmentally conscious, the building combines  passive and active technology to reduce energy consumption. Air,  water and materials are all recycled throughout the design.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThermal mass principles are adopted on the southern ground floor wall, constructed as a reverse brick veneer structure which helps keep interior temperatures consistent. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingLarge operable awning windows open the house up to the north elevation, whilst small highlight openings to the south allow for optimal cross ventilation. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingInside the house material details are highly crafted to form individual expression throughout the spaces. Small eccentricities including recycled 1950s sandblasted glazed doors, fitted with found river stones as handles, joyfully articulate the unique character of the building and its inhabitants. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingProject gallerySee allShow lessOpen Call: Winter Stations Design Competition 2017Built Projects & MasterplansNíall McLaughlin Wins 2016 RIBA Charles Jencks Award for ArchitectureArchitecture News Share 2016 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/795347/seddon-house-osk-architects Clipboard Area:  140 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Seddon House / OSK Architects “COPY” Houses Photographs:  Ben Hosking Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Seddon House / OSK ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSeddon House / OSK Architects CopyAbout this officeOSK ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeddonAustraliaPublished on September 21, 2016Cite: “Seddon House / OSK Architects” 21 Sep 2016.

first_img Comment Saka was named Man of the Match (Picture: Getty)‘Maybe with his [Saka’s] goal and performance he was taking confidence, he was finishing really strong,’ said Emery. Also with Emile [Smith-Rowe], after his injury. He played for the first time this season.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘Willock started a little slow at the beginning but progressively he was feeling very better with a good performance.‘We know tonight that match was difficult. They were very strong here. They’re a very offensive team and defensively we needed to work, sometimes deep, sometimes with their full-backs very deep, crossing a lot to the strikers.‘We spoke and worked the transition, if we were organised defensively and with a good pressing against them.‘We did that. We had the possibility with the young players to create chances and help them, also sharing with experienced players. Their performance tonight was good. It’s our way.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Mirko Campara is Assistant Coach in Futsal National Team of Bosnia-Herzegovina

first_imgA long-time captain of Tango from East Sarajevo and current coach of that club, Mirko Čampara, received a new engagement in the futsal national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina.Following the resignation of Ivan Stanković from the position of assistant coach in the technical staff of Ivo Krezo, the FF BH Executive Board confirmed at its 45th session the proposal of the FA RS and appointed Čampara to that position.“I am honoured to have been appointed as the assistant coach in the futsal team. I am grateful to all who have given me confidence. The first thing I noticed upon arriving at the futsal team was the great atmosphere that prevails among the players, the technical staff and other people who work with the futsal team, so I had no difficulties to fit in”, says Čampara.This young expert is pleased with the game of the futsal team in qualifications for the 2022 EURO:“The results in the first two rounds are really impressive, especially considering that the team first came together in this squad. I believe we are well on our way to achieving good results with one rejuvenated team.”Čampara expects 3 points in tomorrow’s match with Switzerland:“The Swiss play worse than last year, when they also participated in the tournament in Zenica. They showed it at a match with Cyprus yesterday, when they were defeated convincingly. Of course, we will not underestimate them. We are maximally entering tomorrow’s match and I believe we will have no problems.”Mirko Čampara looks optimistically at the future of the futsal team:“We will work more on playing the team in the next period. There are more experienced players out of this tournament due to injuries. We all hope that this generation can achieve to qualify for the big competition. We have a long way to go, but we believe we have the quality to achieve our goals.”last_img read more

Grassley comments on president’s tweet controversy

first_imgWASHINGTON — Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is doing his best to straddle a very thin line as to whether President Trump’s tweet on Sunday about four Democratic women in Congress was racist.Grassley was asked about the president’s tweet, which said the four black, Muslim or Hispanic women should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” Grassley did not specifically call the comment racist, but did address the topic.“Racism is wrong,” Grassley says. “I think the American people deserve more civility in their politics. I hope I promote civility. If I haven’t, I ought to be called out for it.” Democrats in the U.S. House say they’ll pass a resolution condemning the president’s tweet as racist.Grassley, a Republican, is remaining on the fence. “Democratic elected officials should avoid name-calling,” Grassley says. “Everybody ought to be treated respectfully. That’s true of these members of Congress and that’s true of the president.”Reports say Iowa’s other U.S. Senator, Republican Joni Ernst, when asked Monday if she thought Trump’s comment was racist, said, “Yeah, I do.” Later, Ernst was asked by a CNN reporter to repeat her statement as to whether the comment was racist. She responded, “Uh, yeah. They’re American citizens,” and called the president’s comment “not constructive” and “not helpful.”The president’s tweet targeted New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib and Representative Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. Omar is the only one of the four who was born outside the U-S. She came here as a refugee from Somalia as a child.last_img read more

Ernst says President Trump is upset by EPA’s biofuels rules

first_imgWASHINGTON — Iowa Senator Joni Ernst Thursday said she’s talked directly with President Trump about the furor over proposed EPA rules which Ernst says do not fulfill the deal Trump struck in September on the renewable fuels standard.“I did visit with the president actually, again, two nights ago on this issue and several other issues, but largely focused on the RFS,” Ernst said during a telephone conference call with Iowa reporters. “And the president is upset that this is not the same formula that we agreed on in the Oval Office.”Ernst said there is what she calls “an opportunity for correction,” but she’s not sure now is the time for that to happen. A public comment period is currently underway on the EPA’s mandate on ethanol and biodiesel production in 2020.“When I spoke to the president the other night, we would be circling back up, so I do anticipate that between the White House and the staff that’s actively working on the RFS, we’ll be able to visit again with them,” Ernst said.Ernst and Iowa’s other U.S. Senator, Chuck Grassley, have filed written statement today with the EPA, urging agency officials to “uphold their end of the bargain” that Trump struck with the biofuels industry.“I think with overwhelming support, we can hope to fix this error that has been made, you know, it’s not an error. I think Andrew Wheeler, of course, did it on purpose,” Ernst said.Ernst has previously called for EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler’s removal if the EPA doesn’t adjust its biofuels plan to conform with the expectations set during an Oval Office meeting in September.last_img read more
