It rejected Costain because it said there was too much execution risk.The company said: “the board has decided it is not in shareholders’ interests to proceed with any further discussions with Interserve or Costain.”Mouchel also announced its first-half revenues slipped 13 per cent to £270.3m, with underlying profits falling 73 per cent to just £4.1m.

Aviva Premiership: Round 6 predictions

first_imgOur prediction: Written off already and not winning games in the tight final exchanges like seasons of old, Harlequins have not looked strong enough to deal with knocks and set-backs. However they stuck to their task manfully in Clermont last week and may have a little confidence, even if they have lost captain Chris Robshaw to England. Sale, in contrast, look strong and full of a team spirit that was missing last season. This will be close. Quins by 4Northampton Saints v SaracensOur prediction: This should be another teeth-rattler, but Saints are at home and even without George North, they face a big challenge of a Saracens team hunting a sixth straight win. Normally we would suggest Saracens would nip by in this, but logic be damned. Saints by 3London Wasps v Leicester TigersOur prediction: Marcos Ayerza returns any impressive young fly-half Owen Williams is brought in for Tigers to face Wasps who are boosted by returns for Eliot Daly, Tom Palmer and Ashley Johnson. Shame that nothing looks likely to change in Tigers’ mindset. Expect Wasps to start spectacularly and Tigers to claw it back. Leicester by 13 Impressive season so far: George Ford has played well and shown an assured boot. Will he keep Gloucester at bay?THE AVIVA Premiership is back after a fortnight of Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup where the English clubs involved may have had an alright time of it, verging into a pretty good time.So forgetting our absolute howlers so far in the prediction stakes, we jump back on the horse, break out the whip and hit ourselves over the head with it. More clairvoyant than us? Bring on your predictions…Bath v GloucesterOur prediction: West is best, we are told, and if ever there was a good-natured-but-really-not-that-good-natured-but-not-malicious-really game this is it. Bath have fared much better so far and while both have match winners and silky runners the issue is the pack for Gloucester. This one should come down to set-piece power. Bath by 4Exeter Chiefs v Worcester WarriorsOur prediction: Chiefs have been mixing it up with gritty play and break-out, blockbusting stuff and poor Worcester – and pity is a terrible thing to throw at a professional sports team – just can’t manufacture a great result for themselves. Chiefs by 16Stepping in for skips: Luke WallaceHarlequins v Sale Sharks LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Newcastle Falcons v London IrishOur prediction: Will the Exiles’ best player Marland Yarde being snuggly wrapped in cotton wool for England purposes knock Irish off their gait? Perhaps, though they have some individuals still capable of a madcap scramble. Instead expect Falcons half-backs Rory Clegg and Mike Blair to keep sending the ball back down into the corners where the home side’s back-row will want to snuffle anything too long, too short or on the floor.

Chambless, said, “We’d like to reaffirm to Florida voters that the security of our voting systems is always a top priority for election professionals across the State of Florida, and recent enhancements to Florida voting systems have dramatically reduced exposures to any possible ‘hacking’ of elections. At the core of the security of Florida voting systems is the fact that we are a paper ballot state, which means that we can always refer to the paper ballot in the event of a disruption (with the exception of touchscreens for voters with disabilities). It is also important to understand that electronic voting systems are not Internet-based and do not connect to each other online.”Bill Cowles, Orange County Supervisor of Elections issued this statement; ” I’m in full agreement with the information provided by the President Chambless. Orange County’s voting system is 100% paper-based. This includes our ADA voting equipment. We do not have any DRE’s (touch screens).  The Logic and Accuracy (L&A)Test of the voting equipment, as required by law,  to be used for the August 30th Election will be held on Wednesday, August 10th at 9 AM here at the Orange County Elections Office. The test will be overseen by the County Canvassing Board which includes County Judge Jeanette Bigney, County Commissioner Bryan Nelson and myself. The L&A Test is open to the public.”The following excerpts from the letter emphasize the steps being taken to ensure the integrity of Florida’s voting systems:“Prior to each election, a public Logic and Accuracy test is conducted of each voting tabulator and tabulation system to ensure that they are working and tabulating properly.”“Precinct tabulated results are transmitted to our office in brief encrypted burst. Outside attackers would need to overcome multiple layers of encryption which if successful, would result in corrupting, slowing or stopping the transmission of unofficial results to our office.”“The final accumulations that are transmitted to the State as our unofficial results are then written to yet another memory device that are finally uploaded and transmitted to the Division of Elections on another completely separate system and network via a secure upload system which makes the likelihood that an outside attacker to subvert this process even more remote.”“The final step to securing the voting process is the fact that within a  week of the election, a precinct by precinct review is performed where  the precinct totals tape is compared to the unofficial results transmitted on election night to verify a match and any deviations are researched and  noted. Once this is completed the official result is reported.”Use this link to read the entire Open Letter to Florida Voters.

Julia’s House / Moohoi Architecture

first_img Projects South Korea Architects: Moohoi Architecture Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Seoul, South Korea ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/166976/julias-house-moohoi-architecture Clipboard Julia’s House / Moohoi ArchitectureSave this projectSaveJulia’s House / Moohoi Architecture “COPY” ArchDaily Houses Year:  Julia’s House / Moohoi Architecture Photographs:  Park Young-chaeText description provided by the architects. Seocho-dong Overall appearance of the Seocho-dong area, a representative residential district in Gangnam, Seoul, was quite different from the way it looked in the past. Many of the earlier houses were replaced by high-rise apartments. Houses that were excluded from the apartment complexes were turned into low-rise multi-family housing units.Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeOne of the main reasons Julia’s house could remain unchanged was it couldn’t belong to any type of housing that newly appeared and it was situated on a small plot in the outskirts of commercial and residential areas. Moreover, the owner said she couldn’t afford to purchase an apartment unit in the neighborhood by selling the house. She could neither buy an apartment nor build a commercial building, nor build a multi-household home. The narrow alley near the house was enlarged and turned into a road where cars run all day, and the house behind Julia’s home was transformed into a parking lot which exposed it to the cold in winter. In addition, the house in front of hers was changed to a 5-story multi-family housing unit blocking sunlight all day long. Despite such poor housing conditions, the neighborhood has beautiful landscapes surrounded by Mt. Umyeon and Seoul Arts Center. Moreover, she has tremendous assets in her good relationship with next-door neighbors, Stephano, Moses, and John.The 4m wide street in front her house Is an imprudent street that has no pedestrian path, Is a disturbing street that looks directly into her inner courtyard, Is an irritating street that demands endurance without a solution, Is an ambiguous street that makes her confused over whether to wear shorts or not in the summer, Is a frustrating street that makes her embarrassed over whether to gather up curtains or not, Is a nasty street that deprived her of the freedom to enjoy delicious meals with her family. If she has to live in a house which gets no sunlight without the street, If she has to live in a house which allows no entrance without the street, If she has to live in a house which allows no free travel to neighbors without the street, If she has to live in a house which blocks views except the street, If she decides to live in this house again, How should I consider the street 4m in width in front of her house? Is it a street or alley, or a road? Or, is it a moat in the urban city? -First day I visited the house, excerpt from my diary Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeRepair on vision The first thing to be done to keep living in the neighborhood was to handle views from the surroundings. In particular, the house is laid open to view from the house in front. Although direct exposure of the inside of the house could be avoided due to opaque glass on the windows of the multi-household house in front, the problem was severe from the houses on both sides. She said one day while she was putting out the laundry, she was surprised to see a man standing on the balcony on the second floor staring at her house, while smoking. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeHer inner courtyard and bedroom especially were directly viewable from the balcony of a commercial residential building on the left. So, she had to close thick curtains all the time even during the hot summer. However, the problem was the direction facing the south. If installing a screen, views from outside could be blocked. But, it could also prevent sunlight and wind from coming through to the space. I came up with two ideas for the solution. One was to partially lay bricks to cut off views from the next-door house and the other was to partially install a wood curtain on the slab structure on the second floor to let sunshine and wind freely come and go. Through this measure, all the disturbing troubles were resolved. What was needed most in repairing this house was to fix problems concerning views from the outside, rather than the house itself. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeRepair on space Creating a narrow street to connect the entrance of the house and the area What grabbed my attention among external spaces of the house was the boundary between the house and the city. Usually, entrances of houses are adjoined with an alley. But, the house faces a road where a lot of cars go by due to the new apartment buildings constructed nearby. The alley was turned into a road. In this way, like a scene from a movie I watched, a not-so-funny thing might happen as an open entrance could be blown away by a car closely passing by just in time. Thus, I decided to create a narrow alley that connects the entrance with the city like a conjunction connecting words in a sentence. The alley which was created on a corner of the small external spaces of the house serves various roles. It is the place where Julia greets her father occasionally visiting her family, a place where she lets her neighbors into her yard, a place she adjusts her hair or dress on her way to work or a place which bridges the road and her yard together. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeThe Court The house’s external spaces were complicated with miscellaneous things scattered all over. Two jar stands buried in the ground, outdoor stairs, a drying rack with only one wing folded out, a drying rack with both wings available, clotheslines tied between tree branches and drying laundry, a sculpture depicting a naked body which was a work of her daughter, a cross made of tin plate, two boxes full of ceramic works, jar stands filled with rainwater, outside air conditioner unit, a half-open tool box, viewing stones, dog feces, lily, chrysanthemum, good luck tree flowerpots, porcelain pots, morning glory planted along the fence, a persimmon tree, peony, chrysanthemums, a lilac tree, a pomegranate tree, a long bench leaning against the entrance, a broom and a shovel. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeThe only thing missing was a yard. I created a spacious wooden deck at the height of the first floor in order to secure external spaces to distribute the functions such as storage, garden, drying, exhibition and receiving visitors. In this process, separated the garden and the yard by cutting out the area around the existing tree with same size and shape and repaired the outdoor spaces after removing ceramic pieces to the daughter’s atelier or the edge of the pond. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeRepair to Enhance Usability The clock of the house stopped 38 years ago. One of the reasons to purchase the house was said to be 7 rooms which fit the number of the brothers of her husband. But, the family no longer needs all the rooms. Now, four rooms for each family member, coupled with a guest room, are enough. On the other hand, the family needed more storage space as household goods increased. The structure of the kitchen was not proper for large appliances such as large refrigerators and kimchi refrigerators to be installed. Their lifestyle changed significantly, but their living spaces remained unchanged. In addition, the house was dark. Although the house faces the south, the sunlight couldn’t reach inner spaces of the house due to its structure. Moreover, she has never dared to open windows of a north-facing room because of a parking lot. Now, the situation worsened as the newly built house in front obstructs sunlight and wind from reaching her house. I had to find a solution to let the sunshine reach deeply inside. The answer was unexpectedly simple. After I found a sunny place which is not influenced by the house in front, I cut out a big chunk of the floor of the place, inviting sunlight to the deep inner parts of the house followed by the wind. Now, they can stay cool during summer without an air conditioner and Julia’s voice urging them to wake up in the morning is clearly heard from the second floor, although it may be cumbersome for the son.

A Bangkok-based well known architectural firm, Ayutt and Associates design (AAd) proposed an alternative design solution to mitigate the urban-dwelling problematic issue by crafting a INTERLUDE house. INTERLUDE is a house designed not as the main act but for the essential little moments in between. The client’s brief was for a home that can be lived in practically, and on frequent occasions be able to host parties of up to 30 guests. Its primary function is to serve as a livable home, a welcome break away from one act of life and another in an ever-bustling Bangkok city.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe site is situated amongst a densely constructed area, accessed only by a heavily trafficked small 4.5 meters wide road. Contiguous to its north, east, and west are apartment, condominium, and serviced apartment, respectively. This busy neighborhood never sleeps. The southern neighbor provides the only relief with their traditional two storey wooden home towards the southwest corner of the site, and a densely planted garden that occupies the area adjacent to the length of the site.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooGood artists borrow, this house outright steals. The main mass of the building is placed along the three built up sides of the site which creates a substantial garden. Openings are directed towards this central court, with the pool in the foreground, green court taking center stage, and the neighbor’s garden as a backdrop. The southside of the garage is a planter and tree. The midground greenery connect with the neighboring landscape visually, an optical trick that extends the client’s spatial domain. The house is raised half level to deflect inwards looking eyes towards the ceiling maintaining privacy in areas with large openings. Expressed and accentuated as two separate mass, the ground floor is treated as an opaque black impenetrable box. While the upstairs is treated as a lighter white box.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe house on show is nothing short of a set piece designed to entertain, full of smoke and mirrors, choreographed precisely to create a sequence of events. Guests approaches from the narrow access road. Arrival is signaled as the road frontage suddenly recessed, a dark cave like mysterious box greets onlooker, with no hint to what lays beyond but a few sprouting foliage. The gate slides open revealing a densely planted patch ahead. The ceiling is white, light seeps in through the clearstory window the eyes wonder up to reveal yet more foliage. To the right, an opening, through the passage, you are directed towards the light and a long corridor awaits. The space suddenly explodes into an oasis filled with light, that gradually fades in from the darkness.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooTranquility awaits; shrubberies swaying in the wind, and gentle ripples dances on the surface of the pool. As night approaches, the sun falls low, and the house begins to take on a slightly suave and glamourous persona. On the reverse, the garage wall is lined with angular aluminum feature façade. This gives the mass above a weightless illusion, seemingly hovering. The wall reflects the garden, and pool. As people move towards it, they find copies of themselves appearing and disappearing as though passing through a house of mirrors at the fair. The wavy patterned chocolate marble wall echoes the movement of the pool runs along a linear corridor. Eyes are directed straight through to a tall black door. Moving towards it the living room comes into view through the double height glazed wall, but before more details could be examined, the solid wall on the right retreats to reveal a green pocket.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThis opening accentuates the greenery of the house and provide a passage for prevailing winds. Behind the tree, are perforated mirror finished aluminum panels arranged in arbitrary angles, which multiplies the green many folds which visually expands the courtyard. The perforation is calculated to allow the maids to keep a close eye on guests from the service passage behind without being seen. Rays from this well lights up the front door, guests enter through. The client’s heritage awaits. A custom-made dining table crafted from 200 years old timber; wire brushed to show patina.  Two paintings collected by the client hung immediately behind. To the left, the double height living area with a large mural of round and geometric abstractions. Upon closer inspection, the customized furniture reveals themselves to have been created or escaped from the mural itself. Above the cubist sofa, the chandelier echoes the mural with round bulbs and tubular housing. The kitchen surface, island, and back wall are all lined with a smart black and white marble arranged in a diamond pattern aligned with millimeter precision.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe cantilever stairs precisely crafted such that the stone pattern align and runs continuously traversing from the ecstatic ground floor to the sober upstairs. Guests can only look up and envy at where it leads. The real delight lies in the relationship the owners form with the house. The machine for living, demonstrates throughout all the scenes of this interlude culminates in the climax; to tell the time with their stairs. From the clearstory window above the stairs, a ray of light travels down the wall and stop at the handrail, a natural sundial varying with the seasons, thick and thin rays denoting hours and minutes. Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooSave this picture!Sections 01 and 02Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe upstairs cantilever over a third of the pool below to provide shade and ensures privacy. As the upstairs houses the private living quarters, all three sides besieged by the towering neighboring blocks must be protected from prying eyes. The fenestrations on the north, east, and west sides are tightly controlled, carefully considered, and precisely placed to introduce light into spaces without sacrificing privacy. The southeast corner of the dance studio is opened to take advantage of the neighbor’s foliage. Privacy is maintained by framing the view and shaping the fins and eaves. The sides facing the central courtyard are generously fenestrated. Full height glazed doors run the full length of the house, affording the client with unobstructed views of the greenery on site and beyond.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe house is designed to respond to the turbulent tropical climate. In addition to cantilever fins and eaves, to reduce direct sunlight and heavy rain, the glazing layer is recessed to create a continuous balcony. When the doors slide away, the threshold of inside outside dissolves away. The external façade shutter system provides the outermost skin to dissipate the elements which allows natural ventilation to cool the building. Each shutter acts as a heat exchanger funneling air through individual aluminum fin which further reduces heat intake.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooSave this picture!North and West ElevationsThe couple has no kids so only a guest bedroom and a master bedroom are required. A palette of wood and fabric reflects the relaxed atmosphere for a restful act. The space of the master suite flows naturally from bedroom to dressing room to bathroom fluidly. Though privacy is maintained with wardrobe planes and edges. The show pieces reserved for the owners to enjoy privately are less flamboyant than those shared with the guests. The bathroom is such space, finished in solemn matured green marble, the simple interior projects serenity and stillness. The shower wall is finished in a white marble with black veins, arranged to form a pattern of three mountains. The sculptural bath is the center piece, the semi outdoor garden provides the backdrop, naturally lit with a dissolved glass-block wall.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe house with all its smoke and mirrors is at the end of the day, an oasis to be lived in. Its spaces designed to deliver exactly as required, to supplement the functional and emotional needs of the client. The architecture does not actively draw attention unto itself, seeking only to be a place that elevates the living quality of the client, a place to seek solace before heading outside where the next act awaits.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooProject gallerySee allShow lessH-FARM Campus / ZAA Zanon Architetti AssociatiSelected ProjectsAbsolute Flower Shop / More Design OfficeSelected Projects Share CopyHouses, House Interiors•Khet Sathon, Thailand Landscape Designer: Year: last_img read more
