At the rear of the L-shaped house, large floor-to-ceiling glass panes on three sides blur the boundaries between inside and outside, extending the ground floor living space into the modest backyard. A continuity of materials carries through from the interior to the exterior on several planes, so that the exterior space is designed as an extension of the living space on the main floor.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanThe interior flooring material continues uninterrupted outside to form an outdoor patio, and the stone kitchen counter extends along the south wall through the dining room and outside morphing into the built-in BBQ. In the open corner, an overhead wood and steel trellis is designed as a transition from inside to outside, creating the feeling of an exterior ceiling and defining an intimate outdoor room. The trellis also helps to screen the south and west sun in summer, while allowing light to bathe interior spaces in winter.Save this picture!© Bob GunduAt the centre of the house, lightfrom above brightens the interior and reduces the need for artificial lighting. A floating, open-riser stair is topped with a large overhead skylight, which allows light to penetrate deep into the interior. Varying shades of translucent blue panels as the stair guard unfold from the basement to the second floor, and on the upper level large panes of translucent glass define two bathrooms, drawing a bluish light into every area connected to the central stair.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe open stair and operable skylight also create natural ventilation with a powerful stack effect, enabling the owner to live without air conditioning. An extensive green roof cools the house’s flat roofs and absorbs rainwater runoff, further reducing the house’s ecological impact. The result is a light-filled, airy home and an intimate outdoor courtyard that creates a serene retreat for a busy urban professional.Save this picture!© Bob GunduProject gallerySee allShow lessDubai’s Museum of the Future to be Partially 3-D PrintedArchitecture NewsWhy “Young Architecture” is a Detriment to the ProfessionArticles Share Contractor: Save this picture!© Bob Gundu+ 18 Share Through House / Dubbeldam Architecture + Design Products translation missing: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardcenter_img Photographs:  Bob Gundu Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  1450 ft² Photographs DDF European Design CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Toronto, Canada Architects: Dubbeldam Architecture + Design Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Manufacturers: EQUITONE, 3form, Artifort, Bensen, Blanco, Cabano, Catalano, Crate & Barrel, Duravit, Engineered Assemblies, Falmec, Felt Studio, Foscarini, Foster, Herman Miller, KWC, Kartell, KitchenAid, LG Electronics, Miele, +19Stone Tile, Stua, Subzero/Wolf, Woodnotes, Bigfoot Door, CB Marble, Dubbeldam Architecture & Design, Formstelle, Holbrook & Associates, Imran Steel, Just Aluminum & Glass, Kiondo, Kobi’s Cabinets, Natphil, Neptune Benson, Oriole Landscaping, Strader Technologies, Sullivan Source, VALVO-19 Products used in this ProjectFiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaProject Team:Heather Dubbeldam, Jason LeBlanc, Bindya Lad, Oliver Dang, Jacob JeBailey, Johanna Bollozos, Lynden Giles, Suzanna MacDonaldCity:TorontoCountry:CanadaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Bob GunduText description provided by the architects. A busy doctor commissioned the renewal of this 128 year-old house to fulfil his desire for a modern and light-filled home with a connection to the outdoors. Situated on a narrow lot in a dense downtown neighbourhood, the renovation of this 135 s.m. residence also aimed to provide increased living space on the interior.Save this picture!© Bob GunduHowever, in order to preserve the intimate rear garden, the design challenge was to ‘expand’ the interior space without increasing the footprint of the house. This was accomplished by a rethinking of traditional programme, utilizing built-in place elements and changes in ceiling heights to define spaces rather than walls, and by creating a powerful visual connection with the small backyard to extend the living space.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe dark, cramped interior was carved out to create bright, airy spaces connected by an open plan. Materials and built-ins are designed to emphasize linearity – horizontal lines of rift cut white oak millwork, linear divisions of cabinets and display units, stacked strips of industrial felt on the fireplace, and long porcelain tiling with a linear pattern; they create the perception of expanding and stretching the space and direct the eye through the house towards the rear garden.

Sterling reflects on ‘wake-up call’ as he targets end to goal drought against Man Utd

first_img Getty Images Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling is confident that Saturday will be the day he finally breaks his duck of having failed to score against Manchester United.Initially criticised at the beginning of his career for lacking killer instinct, the forward, who will celebrate his 25th birthday on Sunday, has become increasingly efficient in front of goal and last term notched 25 strikes in all competitions as City won the Premier League title. “We’ve got to keep focused and keep the belief – even if the manager doesn’t say it. “It’s a long season and they are far ahead, credit to them, but it’s the Premier League. That’s why we’ve got to be prepared and ready as there’s some tricky games ahead for them. We’ve just got to keep focused and win our games to be with a shout if they do slip up.”Sterling has 15 goals in 21 appearances for City this season, including eight in 14 Premier League outings. Third-placed City face an immense challenge in retaining their Premier League title, having fallen 11 points behind Liverpool, but Sterling is not ready to give up on another crown yet – even if Pep Guardiola has gone public to say his side are no longer thinking of that target.“It’s one that none of us at the club are happy with but it’s happening now,” he said. However, the former Liverpool man has not scored against the Red Devils in 16 previous attempts, making them the only side that he has played more than seven times without scoring.Nevertheless, he is confident that run can come to an end in Saturday’s derby as he aims to quieten his critics once again.“It was a subject I kept hearing after games; that I don’t score enough and I’m not good enough in front of goal,” he told Sky Sports.“When I first came onto the scene I wanted to show I had ability and that I was a good player. But I was never trying to be greedy in trying to win matches by myself. “It was a wake-up call hearing all the critics saying he can’t score goals, so I thought I’d show them that I can. It’s something I started to work on and have belief.“It’s a shift in mentality: in the dressing room I’d always think: ‘What am I going to do to the right back today – shall I nutmeg him? Maybe a step over?’“But now it’s a straight mentality of trying to score and where a goal can come from.”last_img read more
