Material Works were commissioned to design a a small addition to this victorian terraced house in Stoke Newington, London. With a limited budget and limited space for building in, the challenge was to transform the existing dark and cramped kitchen space into a bright and open space that would cater to the needs of a growing family. To achieve this an extensive roof light was installed above the new addition made from frameless glass panels supported on solid oak roof joists. The new external walls were built with reclaimed local bricks to add character and texture to the interior finish. The rear wall was opened up with large sliding glass doors set above a new window seat in oak veneer to match the structural timber and create additional storage.Save this picture!© Gautier HoubaSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Gautier HoubaA careful coordination of the restricted space allowed for the inclusion of a central kitchen island while still leaving space for a dining table and clear routes through the space. The kitchen units were formed from laminated plywood with accents of oak veneer that match the timber elsewhere. A robust polished concrete floor was chosen to provide contrast from natural oak and create an aesthetic that was at once both contemporary, practical and welcoming.Save this picture!© Gautier Houba“We requested something modern and more creative than the standard side returns you see in the area. The designs were fantastic – a raised window with seat, oak beams, polished concrete and exposed brick.” -Dan, ClientSave this picture!© Gautier HoubaProject gallerySee allShow lessTaylor Beach House / SPF: architectsSelected ProjectsCommunity Centers for Displaced PopulationsArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940113/stoke-newington-house-material-works-architecture Clipboard CopyAbout this officeMaterial Works ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnglandLondonUnited KingdomPublished on May 30, 2020Cite: “Stoke Newington House / Material Works Architecture” 30 May 2020.

Thurston County Realtors Speak up for Home and Property Owners

first_imgFacebook57Tweet0Pin1Submitted by Thurston County Realtors AssociationNearly 50 Realtor and affiliate members of the Thurston County Realtors Association (TCRA) joined about 500 Realtors from throughout the state of Washington on January 18, 2018 for Washington Realtors’ annual Legislative Day.Thurston Realtors joined 500 Realtors from throughout the state to discuss issues with legislators in Olympia. Photo courtesy: Thurston County Realtors AssociationThe Realtors met personally with their respective state legislators in the afternoon to discuss the Realtors’ legislative priorities for the 2018 Legislative Session.The discussions with the state legislators who serve Thurston County centered around the residential and commercial real estate markets and how decisions made in Olympia impact home and property owners in their communities. Of chief concern for Thurston County Realtors is the county’s low housing inventory and the need for affordable housing choices to meet a growing demand.The group also discussed regulations that directly affect both urban and rural housing supply, including the need for a remedy to the “Hirst decision”, a fix that the Legislature passed on the day of the Realtor visits. Realtors also brought attention to the impact of student loan debt on consumer purchase patterns and homebuying and they encouraged promotion of this year’s 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act that protects equal housing opportunities.“In our profession, we are out serving people in our communities daily,” said Tonia DeBeaux of John L. Scott in Lacey, the current president of TCRA. “Realtors are one of the key groups that speak up for home and property owners and those who desire to be.”Washington State Rep. Andrew Barkis, (District 2) expressed his appreciation for his meeting with the local group.“It was great to see local Realtors engaged today here in Olympia,” said Rep. Barkis about the visit. “Realtors are at the forefront of working on Affordable Housing solutions!”Thurston County Realtors have participated in the annual state Legislative Day for more than 25 years.last_img read more

Keeping the Lights On and the Fires Out in Monmouth Beach

first_imgBy Jim McConvilleMONMOUTH BEACH _ There are two lights on either side of Bill Marsh’s driveway that are unlike any others on the street. They may not be illuminated every night, but when he flicks them on from a switch in his living room, a smile unfolds across his face. The lights are warm with history, and their soft light ignites the clearest of memories.A natural storyteller, Marsh glows with excitement as he recounts the tale of his more than 50-year residence in the same house, 70 years as a firefighter and decades of dedication to his family and community.“While I was in service, I saved up $400,” he said. “I wanted a motorcycle but my father didn’t want that for me, so he took it to the borough hall and bought this lot. I tore down two old houses and started building this one in 1950.”Marsh went to Long Branch High School but left early to join the Navy. Returning in 1946, he joined the borough’s fire department, a company he was active in even before leaving for military service.“A lot of the original firefighters left and they let the kids help,” he said. “I started when I was about 12. It was quite a thing to get mixed up with the fire company years ago. Close to a hundred members when I first started.”Honored last month for 70 years of service in the Monmouth Beach Fire Department (MBFD), Marsh has dedicated his life to the community. He became fire chief in 1960 and began serving as the borough electrician in 1965, two positions his father, Herbert Marsh, also held.ill Marsh, bottom row, center, with a group of fellow Monmouth Beach firefighters on Sept. 13, 1947, helping the Red Bank Fire Department celebrate its 75th anniversary. Back row, from left: James R. Maney, Harry West, Chief Walter Roe, Robert Burns. Middle row: Walter Mihm, Ira Miller Jr. and Andrew Nilsen.Marsh’s work as an electrician and firefighter became a family affair. His late wife, Myrtle, would often drive the dump truck while Marsh would haul out a stepladder to climb and replace the burned out bulbs in the streetlights on Ocean Avenue. His son-in-law, Kevin Keeshan, and grandsons, Brian and Kevin, Jr., are also members of the MBFD. In fact, the Monmouth Beach Fire Department roster is dotted with Marsh names.Marsh recounts tales of rescues during massive house fires and harrowing floods as if they were just another day at the office. When asked about his proudest moment as a firefighter, he modestly struggles to talk about himself. He settles on autumn 1960, when Hurricane Donna had flooded most of the town.“Johnny Peterson lived on Johnson Street, and he was handicapped,” Marsh said. “I picked him up from his bed, carried him out and got him in the rowboat. I rowed him back to the fire department.”Even when discussing the fire department and his life in Monmouth Beach, Marsh can’t help but credit the others who helped to shape the town, as well as his beloved, “Myrt.” The two met in North Long Branch School; she was a Girl Scout and he was a Boy Scout. She started the Lady’s Fire Auxiliary in Monmouth Beach. Once, when a meeting was delayed because the trucks had not been pulled out, Myrtle got into the truck and pulled it out of the garage herself. To this day, she is the only woman to ever drive a MBFD truck.Marsh describes the difficulties of fighting fires years ago in a small town. “The water mains weren’t as big as they are now,” he said. “We had to lay out how we were going to attack if we had fires. The fire at the Monmouth Beach Inn we pumped out of the river and used the main on Riverdale Avenue.”He became an instrumental member of the truck committee that secured the department’s first 100-foot tower truck.Now, a month before his 90th birthday, Marsh is optimistic about the future of his hometown department.“You gotta be young,” he said. “We still have kids that are active. They play ball in the summer. We’ve got a good team.”When asked what it meant to serve the community for so long, he answered without hesitation.“I never looked at it like that,” he said. “I just did my job. When the whistle blew, you’d go.”The lamps on either side of Marsh’s driveway offer a dusty glow in the blue winter afternoon, a reminder of the duty they once accomplished. When turned on, they shine the same golden light they once shined over Ocean Avenue. They are the same lamps that Marsh once stood on a stepladder to replace, while Myrtle kept the dump truck running below.last_img read more

Bucky Raw’s CS2 Mixtape Continues Record Breaking Streak

first_imgAll Bucky Raw did was to send out an impromptu Facebook post, which served as the only announcement for the mixtape’s release, and fans went wild.Bucky Raw continues to history, this time being the first Liberian rapper to have his album or mixtape feature on Billboard music chart.Bucky “Country Soda 2” (CS2) mixtape, released few months after his deportation from the US, now stands 10 places (September 12, 2018) on the Billboard world music album chart.  The mixtape has been projected by Liberian music critics to reach #1 if the current demand trend continues.The mixtape is currently 10th place on the iTunes World Music Albums chart and 89th on the Amazon Best Seller International category for digital (September 12, 2018), although last week it  topped both charts.This achievement makes the rapper the first and only Liberian artist to have his album/mixtape featured in the top ten of iTunes, Amazon, and Billboard.CS2 is a 12-track mixtape composed of lyrics that are derogative to women and considered by music critics unfit for listening due to its negative or abusive melodic.However, despite the fact that the mixtape is highly filled with such lyrics, its demand among both male and female fans continues to surge in order to meet the artist’s target of 50,000 digital sales on all streaming platform.It is a target which appears possible, looking at the fact that the mixtape’s release came out of nowhere and without promotional publicity. Yet its demand has increased and is massively loved by fans.All Bucky did was to send out an impromptu Facebook post, which served as the only announcement for the mixtape’s release, and fans went wild.“Country Soda 2” (CS2) has been produced by over five producers, making it Bucky’s first studio mixtape. The cover art for the 12-track collection features a child with a hat on, standing in front of a group of people behind him.The massive love shown towards CS2 by fans is something that is unprecedented in Liberia’s music industry and in post-war Liberian music industry.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Beware the Tall Grasses! Or, Death of a Battery

first_img“Hey there Southern Hemisphere! This is the Northern Hemisphere calling. How’re things? It’s about the third week of May, and…well, we’d like our summer back.”  Depending on what part of the world you’re in, the latitudinal phone call that happens around the fifth month of the year signals the start to another summer of geocaching. The longer days, the warmer air, the leafier hiding spots…It’s a season so ideal for geocaching it’s hard to imagine spending your time doing anything else.Though not to the degree of winter, even summer can have the pesky habit of preventing you from getting to GZ and finding a cache safely, effectively, and enjoyably. We’ve got some tips that will get you from working at cross-purposes with summer to working in tandem with it. (Assuming that is a thing.)1) Make peace with your batteryRemember how we mentioned those longer summer days? They’re very good for longer sojourns into the wild, increasing your per-day find count…and draining your phone battery. Consider borrowing or purchasing a portable charger similar to this one available in Geocaching Shop, or this one on Amazon, to keep your phone from puttering to a halt at exactly the wrong moment. Compatibility with several types of devices is an especially useful trait when you’re geocaching with a group. 3) Sunscreen is kingThe sun’s rays may have a pleasing effect on the hue of your skin or the shade of your hair, but don’t make that a reason to forget the sunscreen on your geocaching adventure. Even if in the end you DNF, always protect yourself with SPF, preferably 15 or higher.What tips do you have for ensuring an excellent summer geocaching experience? “What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” -John Steinbeck This geocacher reached GZ happy, healthy, and totally tick-free. Share with your Friends:Morecenter_img 2) Ticks are not your friendsBees, mosquitoes, thistles, and poison ivy are common culprits of summertime discomfort, but ticks should equally be on your radar. Although only a few of the many species of ticks found around the world can bite and transmit diseases to humans, those that do can really ruin your day. Here are some tips to avoid them: Check out a tick distribution map for your area, like this one for Europe and this one for the United States.To be extra vigilant, invest in a bottle of tick repellent.Since it’s not always possible to avoid the high grass or bushes when you’re searching for that cache, dress with ticks in mind. Geocaching HQ’er Heather suggests, “Tuck your pants into your socks to keep the ticks from crawling up your legs. You’ll look really cool, and you’ll be tick-safe.”Conduct a tick-check of yourself, your gear, and your pets after coming back inside.Tick-removal is an art. Know the correct technique.

The Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party and Congress won 54 and 44 seats respectively.While the Shiv Sena has been firm on a 50:50 formula for government formation, the BJP has been equally firm in not giving up the chief minister post. The NCP and the Congress have also made it clear that they would sit in Opposition. With the possibility of post-poll alliance bleak, Mr. Fadnavis finally resigned from the post. Addressing the media after tendering his resignation, Mr. Fadnavis said, “We fought together as Mahayuti, but Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray in his first press conference [after election results] said that all option to form govt is open. It was a shock for us.”He refuted Shiv Sena’s claim that BJP was ready for a 50:50 formula.’Governor looking at various options’The Maharashtra Chief Secretary has called for an urgent meeting of all secretaries following the resignation of Mr. Fadnavis.The oath-taking ceremony for newly-elected MLAs to Maharashtra Assembly, which was scheduled for the coming week, has been called off.Raj Bhavan officials said the Governor was examining options to appoint the next caretaker of the government or start proceedings for imposing President’s rule.In the meantime, Shiv Sena has decided to shift its MLAs to a resort in Madh island till November 15 .
