This project of a two-story residential building in the suburbs of Maebashi City began with the selection of the site.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaThere are some thin rivers flowing in Aonashi town which is the foot of Mt. Haruna. Residential groups are scattered along the rivers, and there is a landscape where rivers slip through between the fields and houses.Currently, farmland is spreading, but it was expected to gradually become residential area.Save this picture!© Yuki TakahashiThe place chosen as the site is the place where the two rivers merge. Various kinds of wild grasses are growing naturally at the confluence point, and there was richness that can not be hoped in urban areas. From the client, the life was not separated from the land, and the living based on the land was requested.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaWe arranged a life to follow the flow of the river and thought of a residence to live with the surrounding environment. Housing consists of an elongated volume with three angles along the river flow. The roof has ridgelines connecting the vertices of each volume so that it adjusts the scale of the whole, and it also responds to the flow of the nearby river, the trees of Nakasu, and the mountains in the distance.Save this picture!SectionsAs a result, a garden was created which is protected from the sun and the north wind outside but is not separated from the environment around the site.The interior was planned with a entrance, a kitchen and a living room in a row, and the wall dividing the room was minimal. These areas are loosely segmented by roof surfaces with different angles.Furthermore, because of the coexistence of two types of finished roof surfaces for each volume, let the location feel the area crossing the volume and function depending on where.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaWe aimed for a living environment that client could live with the land for a long time, in the scenery where the rich country scenery with unevenness in the suburbs will be leveled out as it is diverted to residential areas, while keeping the topographical surrounding environment such as still remaining rivers and Nakasu as clues to daily life. Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaWhat the wooden beams of ceiling intended. /OUVI (Shin Yokoo + Kakeru Tsuruta)
It is a bent building with a short side width of 3.64m and a long side depth of 20m. Normally, a wooden structure with such a a long, slender plan needs some bearing walls in the short side direction and it’s exposed to the interior. Our idea, horizontal diaphragm stiffness unified with a wooden beam 105 × 390 was formed in the roof with a truss structure. Besides, we placed the bearing walls along the bending outer wall. As a result, the bearing walls will perform for various angles of shaking in earthquake, this means that it isn’t depending on the X and Y axes, exposure to the interior is kept to a minimum.
Furthermore, asymmetrical of the wooden beams is intended so that the ceiling doesn’t segment the space too much.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Deck / Somdoon ArchitectsSelected ProjectsAltlife Bookstore in Ningbo / KokaistudiosSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/880790/house-in-aonashi-snark-plus-ouvi Clipboard CopyHouses•Maebashi, Japan House in Aonashi / SNARK + OUVISave this projectSaveHouse in Aonashi / SNARK + OUVISave this picture!© Ippei Shinzawa+ 32 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/880790/house-in-aonashi-snark-plus-ouvi Clipboard “COPY” Photographs Area:  132 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Architects: OUVI, SNARK Area Area of this architecture project 2017 ArchDaily Japan Photographs:  Ippei Shinzawa, Yuki TakahashiDesign:SNARK, OUVI, Kakeru Tsuruta, Shin Yokoo, Sunao Koase, Ryota YamagishiExecution:+KRM

Union pushes Post Office to offer financial services

first_img continue reading » The American Postal Workers Union is making a big ask as part of contract talks it kicked off Thursday with the U.S. Postal Service: It wants the post office to expand customer offerings to include financial services.That will be a challenge. The recently departed postmaster general, Patrick R. Donahoe, said postal banking doesn’t seem needed or feasible. Instead, he recommended focusing on building the agency’s package delivery service for e-commerce companies like Amazon.com, as traditional first-class mail volumes have fallen by more than 20% since 2009.  The union, which is also proposing to extend operating hours at post offices, is hoping new Postmaster General Megan Brennan will consider other ideas.“We’re very serious about the post office taking on financial services. The post office is trusted, it’s in every community, the workers are skilled and trained,” said the union’s President Mark Dimondstein, who spoke at a press conference in Washington Thursday to mark the start of negotiations where the union made its general opening remarks to management.Mr. Dimondstein said cuts and closures to the Postal Service have eliminated tens of thousands of “good, living wage jobs.”“Postal management’s policy has been to severely degrade service, dismantle the postal network, and engage in piecemeal privatization,” he said. “We have a very different vision of enhancing and expanding services,” he added, cautioning that if the union’s proposals aren’t put into action there’ll be more job losses and shifts into low-wage work. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Families opt for a low maintenance lifestyle

first_img MORE: Each townhouse has ultra-modern interiors that open on to beautiful outdoor entertaining spaces with either city views or private terrace access. “We’ve swapped living areas in some of the townhouses for the views and put them on the third level.“We’ve also done things like put the fourth bedroom on the ground floor for those people who have frequent visitors.”With six of the ten townhouses already sold, Mr Thompson said they had received interest from a broad range of buyers.“We have such a broad buyer demographic, from downsizers to first home buyers, we try to cater for them all and make it work for all parties,” he said.“They all find the townhouses meet their needs, but for different reasons.” How to sell your home in a week >>FOLLOW EMILY BLACK ON FACEBOOK<< Looking to downsize, Daryl and Lisa Watson and their three school-aged children have purchased a four bedroom townhouse within the complex.Currently living in Parkinson, Mr Watson said their family home has a big backyard and pool, which requires a lot of maintenance.“We chose to move to Greenslopes for a lifestyle change,” Mr Watson said.

Siera Group director Brent Thompson said the key point of difference in this development was the way in which they had reverse engineered the layout of the three and four bedroom townhouses.“We’ve designed the townhouse to suit the buyer by focusing on the lifestyle of those people,” Mr Thompson said. Named after its expansive city views and set in a leafy Greenslopes enclave, ‘Vista on the Green’ is raising the benchmark for luxury townhouse living.

You can just roll them down to emergency.” RELATED: Premium fixtures and fittings often considered as extra’s in other developments are included as standard in these townhouses.
