We wanted to make a light-filled house connected to the garden – and a family home that had space to live and work in. The idea was to place a top-lit stair in the middle of the plan, with a private buffer to one side (to the road), and the living spaces to the other (to the garden). This sandwiched the living spaces between the garden and the circulation zone and made the connection to the outside. The clients had asked about making a terrace adjacent to their bedroom for a morning coffee, and this tied the roof heights of the extension into the existing floor levels.Save this picture!© Emanuelis StasaitisThe existing house had a convoluted set of internal corridors and dark rooms, despite having large elevations facing east, south, and west. As rowers, both clients are very tall (as their children will be in future years) so maximising head height and filling the property with light to preserve the feeling of openness, was an essential part of our aspiration.Save this picture!© Emanuelis StasaitisSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Emanuelis StasaitisThe extension was formed in timber kit, with a timber and brick external leaf. The existing house was overclad in a new silicone render system and timber, while the roof was overclad in standing seam zinc.Save this picture!© Emanuelis StasaitisWe relocated the front door to permit a simplification of the circulation zone, and we introduced a lot of internal glazing so that the spaces seem bigger than individual rooms. In the extension, we left the roof structure on display (in this instance, a series kerto glulam roof beams, so that the ceiling height was maximised and to add a little visual delight to the new space. The minimal glazing allows the corner of the house to slide away, connecting the inside seamlessly to the garden.Save this picture!© Emanuelis StasaitisProject gallerySee allShow lessBT06 Warehouse / Nadau ArchitectureSelected ProjectsThe Women of Woods Bagot: Architects Building New FuturesArticles Share Area:  202 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project The Rower’s House / Loader Monteith ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThe Rower’s House / Loader Monteith Architects Lead Architect: Photographs:  Emanuelis Stasaitis Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeLoader Monteith ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnglandLondonUnited KingdomPublished on December 17, 2020Cite: “The Rower’s House / Loader Monteith Architects” 17 Dec 2020.

The suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on the same day that Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and the other seven crash victims were memorialized in a public ceremony at the Staples Center. Fans arrive to attend the “Celebration of Life for Kobe and Gianna Bryant” service at Staples Center The lawsuit names Island Express Helicopters, Island Express Holding Corp. and the estate of the helicopter’s pilot, Ara Zobayan, who was among the victims. Gianna Bryant’s basketball teammates Alyssa Altobelli and Payton Chester, Altobelli’s parents John and Keri, Payton’s mother Sarah and basketball coach Christina Mauser were also killed. The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating the exact cause of the crash, although preliminary findings showed no sign of mechanical failure. Monday’s lawsuit faults the company for allowing the helicopter to fly in “heavy fog and low clouds” that Sunday morning, conditions which prompted “law enforcement agencies and tour companies” to ground their helicopters.Advertisementcenter_img “On information and belief, Island Express Helicopters Federal Aviation Administration operating certificate limited its pilots to flying only under visual flight rules,” the lawsuit says. “The subject helicopter was not licensed or certified to be flown into instrument conditions. On information and belief, the pilot-in-command, Ara George Zobayan, was required to fly only in conditions that he could navigate visually. “Ara George Zobayan attempted to maneuver the helicopter up and forward to clear the clouds, then entered a turn sending the helicopter into steep terrain at approximately 180 mph,” according to the suit. “Witnesses on the ground reported seeing the helicopter flying through a layer of clouds and fog before the helicopter crashed.” Read Also: Beyonce kicks off LA memorial for Kobe Bryant, daughter The lawsuit notes that in 2015 Zobayan was cited by the FAA for violating the visual flight rules minimums by “flying into an airspace of reduced visibility from weather conditions.” Island Express did not immediately comment on the suit, which seeks unspecified general, economic and punitive damages.

Dodgers score four times in ninth to complete sweep of Diamondbacks, 5-4

first_imgCole found the strike zone more often than Diamondbacks closer Fernando Rodney, who was handed a three-run lead but didn’t retire any of the six batters he faced. Rodney walked four (one with the bases loaded) and gave up a game-tying two-run single to Corey Seager before being removed. Chris Taylor’s fourth hit of the night, a single off the final Diamondbacks reliever, T.J. McFarland, gave the Dodgers their latest walk-off — but don’t walk away — win.“That was incredible,” Dodgers starting pitcher Rich Hill said after the team’s fifth walk-off and 22nd comeback win. “I saw some people leaving the ballpark. You’ve gotta stay with this team.”The Diamondbacks must have left the ballpark depleted after the ninth-inning gut punch of a rally completed a three-game sweep and moved the Dodgers 5½ games in front in the National League West.With the win, the Dodgers (58-29) have gone 23-4 over their past 27 games, going from two games down to once again exerting their authority over the division they have ruled each of the past four years.Two weeks ago, the Colorado Rockies came to Dodger Stadium just 1½ games back. They were outscored 22-7 in a three-game sweep by the Dodgers and haven’t been heard from since. LOS ANGELES >> Love was in the air at Dodger Stadium on Thursday night.An outpouring of fan support got Justin Turner an invitation to the All-Star Game. Manager Dave Roberts’ daughter, Emme, sang the National Anthem on her dad’s bobblehead night and his son, Cole, threw a ceremonial first pitch to him.Hours later, the Dodgers dispensed some tough love, rallying for four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to hand the Arizona Diamondbacks a 5-4 defeat.“It was a perfect day,” Dave Roberts said. “The way it started with my daughter singing the anthem and my son throwing a strike to me and winning in that fashion — it was a perfect day.” This week, the Diamondbacks brought their hopes to town and got swept, losing three consecutive one-run games.“I think from Day One we knew we were the best team in the West,” Roberts said. “It was just a matter of going out there and playing. You had the Rockies and the Diamondbacks playing good when they came in here. Yeah, we wanted to play well and win games. We took care of business.”Not right away.The Dodgers struck out 13 times in the first seven innings against Diamondbacks All-Star Robbie Ray. They wasted a leadoff double by Taylor in the fourth inning and got nothing out of bases-loaded situations in the first and sixth.With runners in scoring position against Ray, the Dodgers were 0 for 7 and struck out five times. Their only run came on a solo home run by Logan Forsythe in the fifth inning, matching one of the same by Jake Lamb off Hill in the top of the inning.It stayed tied until the eighth when Lamb hit his second home run of the night, lofting a 2-and-1 changeup from Luis Avilan into the right field seats. Two batters later, Ketel Marte drilled a 1-and-1 fastball from Avilan 440 feet deep into the left-field pavilion.In the top of the ninth, Josh Fields balked in a run to make it 4-1. That’s when Rodney went to work.Only three of his first 15 pitches found the strike zone – and one of those was whacked for a single by Yasiel Puig to light the fire.“Obviously, Rodney has a proven track record but he just couldn’t find it tonight,” Roberts said. “We were able to essentially make his own grave there and not kind of get ourselves out and made him make pitches. We put ourselves in a good spot.”Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger came off the bench to pinch hit and walked on a combined nine pitches to load the bases. Neither swung at a single pitch.“Once a guy is struggling a little bit, you don’t want to be too aggressive,” Bellinger said. “You want to make him work.“It’s hard, especially when you have however many people cheering for you to do something.”Those fans that Hill didn’t catch heading for the exits got to see Rodney walk Forsythe on four more pitches then Seager bounce a 2-and-2 pitch through the middle of the infield to tie the score.Taylor sent the rest home with his walk-off single.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
