Williams Studio / gh3

A photographer’s studio over a boathouse on Stony Lake is a re-imagination of the archetypal glass house in a landscape in the Canadian Shield. A continuation of thinking about this architectural ambition, the central concept of the house is reconceived through a contemporary lens of sustainability, program, site and amenity. The compelling qualities of simple, open spaces; interior and exterior unity and material clarity are transformed to enhance the environmental and programmatic performance of the building, creating architecture of both iconic resonance and innovative context–driven design. Save this picture!east elevationThe program envisions a building as north–facing window: a photographer’s live/work studio and film location that is continuously bathed in diffuse and undiminished natural light. The transparent facade—a curtain wall glazed in low-iron glass—becomes the essential element in a photographic apparatus to produce images unobtainable in a conventional studio. The availability and fidelity of north–facing light in the double-height space provide the photographer with unparalleled natural illumination, while the clarity of the glazing transforms the site and surrounding vistas into a sublime, ever–changing backdrop. Save this picture!© Larry WilliamsThe compact glass form sits at the water’s edge on a granite plinth whose matte black facade dematerializes to suspend the building, lantern-like, on the site. The granite’s thermal mass exploits the abundant solar input, eliminating the need for active systems on winter days, while the lakefront site allows the use of a deep-water exchange to heat and cool the building year–round through radiant slabs and recessed perimeter louvers at the floor and ceiling. Sliding panes in the glass skin—three metres wide at the ground floor, and one and a half metres wide on the mezzanine floor—allow the facade to become completely porous for natural ventilation, while an individually automated blind system, white roof, and deciduous hedgerow guard against excessive solar gain. The continuous blind system additionally serves as a second aesthetic skin, transforming the interior into an enclosed, intimate space, and the exterior into a gently reflective mirror of the surroundings. Save this picture!© Larry WilliamsEntry into the site is facilitated through a minimalist landscape that deploys endogenous materials while leaving the greatest portion of the site in its evocative, glacier-scoured state. A simple granite plinth serves as threshold for the south-facing entrance, where solid program functions and vertical circulation are arranged in a narrow, efficient volume. From the outset, the goal was to accommodate the client’s needs within a small footprint. Domestic functions are integrated into a furniture-like mezzanine assembly suspended above the main space, where bedroom, bathroom and closet are coextensive, and sliding fritted glass allows the whole to be concealed from the rest of the space. Throughout the upper and lower levels, interior partitions are clad with seamless white lacquered panels whose reflective qualities diffuse light into every part of the interior and create complex layered views through the space. Save this picture!© Larry WilliamsSet to be built in the spring of 2010, a lightweight aluminium curvilinear structure guarded by low-iron glass will be constructed at level with the house. This freestanding structure will serve as an outdoor living platform.Save this picture!ground floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessCongress and Hotel Centre / SHL ArchitectsArticlesAD Round Up: Industrial Architecture Part IIArticles Share CopyHouses•Ennismore, Canada Year:  Houses 2007 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/47504/williams-studio-gh3 Clipboard “COPY” “COPY” CopyAbout this officegh3OfficeFollowProductGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOfficesHousesEnnismoreCanadaPublished on January 27, 2010Cite: “Williams Studio / gh3” 27 Jan 2010.

(Eli Hartman|Odessa American) EducationECISDLocal News OCA top 2 were ESL students Twitter 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Crockett Middle School Facebook Not only do Nataly Sotelo and Tamara Arevinas, the top two students at Odessa Collegiate Academy, model academic excellence but they were students of the English as a second language program at Ector County ISD.With their first language being Spanish, it took persistence for them to learn English. Sotelo is the valedictorian and Arevinas is the salutatorian.Sotelo, 18, plans to attend UTPB to earn a bachelor’s degree in biology to become a physician assistant with the ultimate goal of becoming a doctor.Arevinas, also 18, plans to attend UTPB and study criminal justice to become a forensic science technician.Both were in the bilingual program until the middle of fifth grade. Arevinas went to Jordan Elementary School and Sotelo to Cameron, a dual language elementary. Sotelo went to Ector Middle School and Arevinas to Bowie.They both still speak Spanish at home.Sotelo said it was confusing trying to learn English because she would learn things in both languages and have to translate something into Spanish.“Things would get tangled up, I guess,” Sotelo said.Arevinas said bilingual students wouldn’t really mix with the other youngsters. She added that English and Spanish can sound the same, but they’re very different.“… There are some words that are hard to understand, so it’s very difficult to translate,” Arevinas said.Sotelo said she felt that being at Cameron made it easier for her because it was a dual language school.“Everyone was either learning Spanish for the first time or English … so being in that dual language curriculum made it easier for me as well as for others,” Sotelo said.Sotelo said she never really thought much about being a former ESL student and becoming one of the top students until Principal James Ramage bought it up.Arevinas said her achievement shows younger students that as long as you put in the hard work, it doesn’t matter where you start.Sotelo said youngsters should never give up and know that they can do anything they set their minds to.Arevinas added that there is a lot of support for students “so dream big and just continue; be patient.”Ramage said they did exceptionally well for anyone learning a new language and they didn’t let it hold them back.“Seeing you guys as an example is just tremendous. … I just think it’s rather unique because it’s the valedictorian and salutatorian,” Ramage said.Executive Director of Bilingual/ESL Education Betsabe Salcido said she would not say it’s unusual for ESL students to become top students.“I would say that many times there may not be the awareness that students have been served through the bilingual and ESL program,” Salcido said. “It’s really exciting to have both of them having been served through our program as valedictorian and salutatorian. … I was very excited for them. It’s what we want for all of our students; we want them to have the skills and to be able to achieve their postsecondary dreams.”There are a little more than 6,000 English learners in the bilingual/ESL program. Salcido said the majority are Spanish speakers, but they have a little over 30 languages represented in the district.“It can be challenging to learn in a second language while also mastering academics, and for our bilingual students for example, they struggle to be bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. That’s our goal, so we know that for example with these two young ladies they have definitely had to put in the work and the effort,” Salcido said. “This also speaks highly to their teachers that they have had throughout their years in ECISD.”The student engagement and relationships they build can help the students thrive, Salcido added.“I’m very proud of their academic success, of course, and … I’m going to share this with my department because I know we wish them the best and we can’t wait to hear about their future accomplishments,” Salcido said.

She shares her life’s story in hopes that others will also find the heart of who they are.“I didn’t write ‘Rural Home’ as an autobiography because I wanted to continue writing my life’s story, so I wrote it as a memoir,” she said.What exactly is ahead for Holland the author, she’s not sure. But she’s looking ahead with great but guarded optimism.“‘Rural Home’ is being considered for a Hollywood storyline but that would be too much of a dream,” she said. “Right now, I’m looking toward writing a sequel and anxious to get that first royalty check. I’m enjoying every day of life with my wonderful husband, Gene. I’m at a very good place to be and life is good.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Holland said that post-polio syndrome is a condition that affects polio survivors years after recovery from an initial acute attack of polio.“There is a gradual weakening in the muscles that were previously affected by the polio, she said. “I cannot stand for a long period of time and I’m in a wheelchair most of the time. But I’m not sick and I’m not handicapped. I can still write and I can still do my artwork.” She then added with a laugh, “I just can’t run the vacuum, mop, wash dishes or clothes.”The purpose of the book, “Rural Home” was for Holland to find her true self, she said. She did so by thumbing through 30 years of journal entries as fodder for the writer’s mill.“By uncovering myself, I am no longer whispering but shouting out loud,” Holland said. “In my past, pretense was, on occasion, necessary for survival.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsonlast_img read more

E-commerce and law firms perform badly

first_imgNearly a third of solicitors firms and e-commerce companies have not putstakeholder schemes in place and could face fines of up to £50,000. Research by Sedgwick Independent Financial Consultants shows that only 70per cent of solicitors firms and 65 per cent of e-commerce companies haveeither introduced a stakeholder pension scheme or already have an occupationalpension scheme. Just over half of the 2,000 solicitors firms surveyed already have astakeholder scheme in place as do 45 per cent of the 1,200 e-commercebusinesses which took part in the research. The study reveals that 12 per cent of solicitors and 19 per cent ofe-commerce firms said they were “not interested” in talking about astakeholder scheme. Dawn Johnson, director of financial advice at Woolwich, said, “The factthat nearly a third of companies in these two sectors have not signed up to astakeholder scheme is alarming given that the 8 October deadline is now uponus.” All employers with five or more staff are required by law to have introduceda stakeholder scheme by 8 October if they have no other pension provision orface fines.

Gü develops adult-targeted cookie range

first_imgIndulgent chocolate brand Gü is extending its reach into in-store bakery with a new range of adult-only cookies. The company best known for its chilled desserts has identified a gap in the market for an upmarket branded cookie that isn’t aimed at children.Said product manager Claire Richardson: “We found that 50% of premium cookie buyers are one- to two-person households and 50% have no children, yet all the ISB cookies (own-label and licensed) are sold in packs of four or five cookies. The licensed products on the market are ’family-type brands’, all of which are confectionery licences like Smarties and Rolo.”Gü has launched three premium varieties in packs of two: Ultimate Chocolate (chocolate cookies with chunks of chocolate), Chocolate & Sour Cherry (chocolate cookies with chunks of chocolate and sour cherries), and Chocolate & Caramel (caramel-flavoured cookies with chunks of chocolate and caramel pieces).The packs are currently listed in Asda and baked in-store, although Tesco will sell the products from late November and a roll-out plan for other retailers is in place.last_img read more
