Sulgrave Road apartments 008 & 009 are two new homes, located in Shepherds Bush, London, formed by extending and re-organising two Victorian Houses. The building from second floor to roof level was stripped back to its original brick skeleton to allow the re- configuration and additions to the rear elevation with a new level added at third floor. Apartment 009 creates a new home from the letiover void space in Victorian pitched roofs. Apartment 008 forms a new home by reorganising a lateral space across two Victorian houses.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasApartment 008 is considered as a collection of rooms, with each room being defined by bespoke joinery. Douglas Fir and white washed Ash form free-standing joinery, used as a spatial device to separate programmes and located to create multiple spaces within lateral rooms. Rooms retain traces of their Victorian proportion, this is then contrasted with a new proportion which is formed by overlapping adjoining spaces.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanDouglas Fir ply seamlessly lines the floor and walls of the living room. Forming a material container, allowing furniture to contrast against the texture of the floor and wall. Bedrooms and bathrooms are separated by deep joinery units that have been conceived as small buildings. Organised to include storage, a desk, lighting and a secret door providing access to a bathroom. The joinery is a spatial device, an interface that both connects and separates programmes.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasApartment 009 is formed across two existing roofs, creating a new home from the unused voids of existing Victorian houses. The project is an example of how the city can provide more housing on existing land with limited construction.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasLarge sliding doors between rooms allow spaces to be cellular or open plan, creating a fluid relationship between uses. A south facing external terrace is connected to the internal living spaces by sliding glazed doors. This configuration allows a continuous connection between terrace, living, dining and kitchen. Four spaces that join and overlap – allowing an interaction between interior and exterior. The roof extension is formed in a lightweight timber construction, faced in black oiled cedar, a contrast to the texture and form of adjoining roofs. The black cedar both absorbs the south sun and contrasts against the sprayed white terrace enclosure.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe roof garden is conceived as an external room. A perforated white steel wall lines the boundaries of the space, providing a spatial enclosure while maintaining a visual connection with the surrounding gardens below. The white steel wall folds to form a continuous seat. Under-lit, the perforated seat glows at night creating a siluetee against residents as they move across the space.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasBedrooms are organised on the north side. Wide spaces, top lit and characterised by washed ply joinery. These joinery elements wrap around the bedroom, a single form providing storage, seating and headboard in one material.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe section is articulated to bring top light into each area of the plan, deep reveals direct daylight over the entrance, kitchen and living room seating. Alternating sunlight and daylight is brought in through a range of building openings, the change in scale and location animate internal spaces, creating rooms that are full of shadow and daylight. Apartments 008 & 009 are the latest in a collection of spaces in London that Teatum + Teatum design, produce and make available to rent.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Client:This is the latest project that has been produced by Teatum+Teatum. Under this structure we design and produce spaces and make them available to rent. We act as the client, architect and manage the production of space. This structure allows us to develop a spatial strategy, manage the production process and curate the space while being rented. Each project is developed with a specific spatial concept that responds to the context, existing building and a commitment to developing new narratives for urban living.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Brief:To produce homes that are spatially organised to create social and material experiences. Engage with the lives of people that move through the city for short periods and invest in an architecture that can be made available to a wide audience.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanThe way people live and work in London is changing rapidly. Globally more people move through urban centres for short periods, use the city flexibly, don’t require (or have the capacity for) ownership of property and seek to have varied living experiences as opposed to being fixed in one place. Our spaces are a response to this condition. Released from ownership, the spaces offer the opportunity for a range of living experiences in the city.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Future:Teatum+Teatum are interested in the social opportunity of space. Current projects being developed will offer a mix of programmes with an emphasis on communal and shared spaces containing some of the programmes that are normally private. The intention is to create homes that offer spatial interaction between residents through cooking, gardening and making, allowing the opportunity for a layered programme, offering a vibrant set of living experiences.Project gallerySee allShow lessEstúdios Capelinha / Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsInfographic: ArchDaily Building of the Year Awards 2015InfographicsProject locationAddress:Sulgrave Drive Northwest, Wilson, NC 27896, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Guatemala and El Salvador Reactivate Bi-National Border Police

first_imgBy Dialogo October 31, 2012 Guatemala and El Salvador reactivated the bi-national Border Police on October 29, aimed at protecting common border areas and safeguard the wellbeing of those who travel between both countries, informed a Guatemalan official source. “The security plan, which involves the Guatemalan and Salvadoran police forces, integrates the national security strategy driven by both governments,” said the director of the Guatemalan Institute of Tourism (INGUAT), Pedro Duchez, in a statement. The plan “is particularly relevant, because guaranteeing the security of those who visit Guatemala is a priority, and El Salvador is the main source of visitors into Guatemalan soil, a market that has grown 6.9% compared to 2011,” he stated. According to INGUAT, from January to August, 392,437 Salvadoran tourists entered Guatemala. The Chief of the Guatemalan National Civil Police, Gerson Oliva, said that the Guatemalan police force will be integrated by 32 people and 10 mobile units. Guatemala and El Salvador used to have a bi-national police that safeguarded the roads that connect both nations, but it was discontinued four years ago. “With this reactivation, we are taking the first step to strengthen the protection of the border roads towards Guatemala City and El Salvador,” indicated the chief of police.last_img read more

Report: MLB, union discuss playing all games in Arizona

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire NEW YORK (AP) — Putting all 30 teams in the Phoenix area and playing in empty ballparks was among the ideas discussed Monday by Major League Baseball and the players’ association.The sides held a telephone call to talk about paths forward for a season delayed by the new coronavirus pandemic, people familiar with the discussion told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because no details were announced.Ideas are still in the early stage, and the Arizona option would have many obstacles to overcome, the people said.Half of the MLB clubs hold spring training in Arizona, the other half in Florida. Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Arizona’s advantage is 10 spring training ballparks plus the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field all within about 50 miles. Florida’s spring training ballparks are spread by as much as 220 miles.“It allows for immediacy of a schedule, where you might be able to begin it and televise it, provide Major League Baseball to America,” said Scott Boras, baseball’s most prominent agent. “I think players are willing to do what’s necessary because I think they understand the importance of baseball for their own livelihoods and for the interest of our country and providing a necessary product that gives all the people that are isolated enjoyment.”“It gives them a sense of a return to some normalcy,” Boras added. “You talk to a psychologist about it and they say it’s it’s really good for a culture to have to have sport and to have a focus like that, where for a few hours a day they can take their minds off the difficult reality of the virus.”Baseball’s season had been set to start March 26 but spring training was halted on March 12. After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended restricting events of more than 50 people for eight weeks, MLB said it would not open until mid-May at the earliest.Texas Rangers president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said MLB is examining different options and he didn’t want to speculate.Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Angels fail to take series in Oakland, lose in 10 innings “But, obviously, we’d all love to find a way to play, provided we could do safely, and that would be the priority,” he said.The players’ association would want to survey its members to determine whether they would support such a plan, one of the people said.“You’re going to be largely separated from your families and you’re going to have to function in a very contained way. It’s not it’s not a normal life, this idea,” Boras said. “You’re going to have an identified group of people. You’re going to have a constantly tested group of people. And you’re going to have a very limited access of those people to the outside world so that you can assure a very uncontaminated league, if you will, to produce a product that is inspirational to our country.”Chase Field, with artificial turf and a retractable roof, could be the site of daily tripleheaders, Boras said.MLB and the union reached a deal March 26 to advance $170 million in salary to players for the first 60 days of the season. As part of the deal, players would get only prorated portions of their salaries if the regular season is cut from its usual 162 games and would receive no additional salary if the season is scrapped.Both sides have agreed to attempt to play as full a season as is possible, and this plan would enable to season to start while waiting for health and government officials determine whether it is safe to resume play in regular-season ballparks, with the travel that would entail.
