Levitt Bernstein have completed a high density, sustainable, affordable- housing project in Islington, based around the concept of ‘productive landscapes.’ The project began as the winning entry to an Islington Borough Council housing competition in 2009.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerThe three storey building provides thirteen dwellings – a mix of two, three and four bedroom family maisonettes and apartments on a previously under-used site, formerly home to the Empire Theatre in Finsbury Park. “Islington Borough Council’s brief
for the competition was to develop
a flexible housing typology which would become as emblematic of Islington as its Georgian, Victorian and exemplary Modernist housing. We took the opportunity to create
a socially responsible scheme with
its own distinct identity through
the concept of ‘homesown’ – the provision of a community amenity space with allotment plots and linear strips of garden for new residents and those of the existing tower opposite
” explains Jo McCafferty, Director at Levitt Bernstein.
The homesown philosophy builds on Islington’s history as an area famous for its agriculture, dairy herds and produce as well as the site’s location along an historic trading route.Save this picture!Section AxonometricDetailed Design PlansGround floor duplexes all share the same organisational layout. Kitchens are situated to overlook the street, with the dining in the middle section. The living area is to the rear, offering views into the facing courtyard and the bedrooms are located on the first floor, with their own private balcony.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerThe living areas open up fully to
the courtyard space, clad in white brick to maximise reflected light and allowing outdoor and indoor spaces to become one. Storage and service spaces are invisibly integrated in thick walls keeping the living spaces as open, transparent and flexible as possible.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerThis storage continues into the private courtyard beyond with integrated external seating, and a linear planter and terminates in a garden room enclosed by a trellis and sliding, dark stained timber screens. This structure provides valuable storage for each household and privacy between each courtyard garden. Latticed brick panels are staggered across a textured brickwork exterior at upper levels to screen the private gardens, at ground floor, from the communal walkways above and also to create an opportunity for planting and hanging herbs and shrubs.Save this picture!Duplex Floor PlanAll dwellings are designed to meet the Lifetime Homes Standard and
a large ground level fully accessible wheelchair user apartment has been carefully designed with LBI Accessibility officers as an exemplar WC user dwelling.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerThe treatment of each surface
forms an important part of the overall landscape and environmental strategy, ranging from high quality amenity spaces, areas for renewable energy (PVs), reducing storm water runoff through green roofs and water butts, improving biological habitat and produce gardens. The key design principles have been to provide for flexibility of use, low maintenance, generous storage and maximising privacy. The front gardens are designed to be a continuation of the existing front gardens to the terraced houses
to the south. A specimen fruit tree in each garden provides a strong visual element along the street with underplanting of herbs and other edible species creating a true urban kitchen garden.Save this picture!Exploded IsometricThe scheme has been designed and built to exceed CSH Level 4 so it can be easily upgraded to Code Level 5. All homes are designed to meet London Housing Design Guide standards and Islington’s own detailed accessibility requirements. The intention is for this typology to be applicable to other neglected ‘garage’ sites throughout the borough.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerProject gallerySee allShow lessMarc Fornes / THEVERYMANY Installations Transform INRIAArchitecture NewsPreservationists Lose Battle to Save Orange County Government CenterArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Vaudeville Court, Saint Thomas’s Road, London N4 2QG, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

Have the current offenses passed up Steelers DC Keith Butler? (Sept. 19)

first_imgSTEELERS ROOKIE SAFETY TERRELL EDMUNDS missed a number of tackles in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, 42-37, Sept. 16. (Photos by Courier photographer Brian Cook)The Kansas City Chiefs massacred the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Steelers’ house on Sept. 16, 42-37. There are all types of blame to spread around but let’s start with the kicking game. On several occasions, Steelers punter Jordan Berry gift-wrapped the Chiefs excellent field position, giving them a very short field to exploit a questionable Black and Gold defense. More on the “McNasty” Steelers defense later.Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt punted twice for an average of 47 yards per punt. His opponent that was wearing “black and yellow,” Jordan Berry, punted five times for a net of 31.6.When the opposing punter outkicks you by a 15-yard average, that automatically gives any opposing offense an advantage, especially when the defense is “suspect.” The punt return blocking for the Steelers special teams was atrocious—the Steelers only returned one punt for a measly six yards, while the Chiefs brought back two punts for 54 yards. This lackluster effort seemed as if the offense, defense and special teams of Pittsburgh was “plumb tuckered out,” maybe from the maximum effort they had to put forth just to exit FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland the Sunday before, which, as you know, resulted in a tie of all things.Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers can no longer “start slow” because with Pittsburgh’s questionable defense, the Steelers will become “ketchup” at Heinz Field or any other field as opposed to “catching up” if the Steelers happen to land in a hole. As far as I am concerned, with Steelers star cornerback Joe Haden injured and less than 100 percent, any opposing offensive coordinator can spread the ball around without too much concern. When Haden is in the lineup, teams must game plan for his presence at all times. Also, teams will more often than not shy away from him.In 2017, the defensive scheme of Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler didn’t end up as bad as everyone thought it would. Pittsburgh was ranked fifth in total defense and surrendered an average of 201 passing yards and 105 rushing yards per game.Not too shabby for a team that was and remains in the process of rebuilding but almost always teetering on the precipice of failure because of youth and inexperience. But they have grown. If not for five turnovers in their 2018 season opener and lousy kicking in their home opener, who knows? Pittsburgh could and should be 2-0 as opposed to 0-1-1.Butler should go back to the drawing board, look at some defensive film from the Steelers defensive past and rip a few pages out of the “Nasty D” playbook as opposed to the “McNasty” playbook. The “Nasty D” playbook imposes their will on the offense of the opposition. The 2018 Steelers defense comes from a lineage that was once esoteric. Now Pittsburgh’s “McNasty D” is simply generic and predictable, running prevent and cover-two hybrid defensive schemes that only prevents them from being successful. Letting opposing offenses “have it their way.”Keith Butler was once thought of as the “heir apparent” to former Steelers Hall-of-Fame defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. Instead, Mr. Butler, like the “prodigal son,” has squandered away the rich Steelers defensive inheritance and legacy left to him by Mr. LeBeau and others, both alive and dead. It seems as if just in the recent past, folks were pining about Dick LeBeau and how he hadn’t adapted his defenses to modern offensive playbooks and how offenses had passed him by.Have the current offenses passed up Keith Butler as well?(Aubrey Bruce: [email protected]) Like us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierlast_img read more

Yuvi takes exception as Ravi Shastri remembers WC 2011 win – but fails to…

first_imgImage Courtesy: GettyAdvertisement appkNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs6jwWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E9nc7u( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 1wwiqWould you ever consider trying this?😱7gcsCan your students do this? 🌚7j5Roller skating! Powered by Firework Yesterday marked the Indian cricket team’s 9 year anniversay of their second ICC Cricket World Cup win, happened all the way back on 2nd April 2011. Taking on Sri Lanka in the final at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, India clinched a staggering chase victory, marking their second title after their maiden 1983 world cup trophy. Such a prestigious moment was remembered by Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, as he took it to social media to make a tributary post. However, the post got a backlash from none other than the country’s cricketing icon Yuvraj Singh, as Shastri failed to mention two match winning players from the final- himself and the captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni!Advertisement Image Courtesy: GettyThe Final saw India chasing down a target of 275, as Dhoni and Yuvraj remained on the 22 yards till the end. With a dominating six wicket victory, it marked India’s second title win of the glorious cricketing tournament.Ravi Shastri’s post- a clip of the final six struck by MS Dhoni, with Yuvi on the non striking end- is what shook the whole Indian population on that day. The coach tweeted the clip with the message: “Many Congratulations Guys! Something you will cherish all your life. Just like we from the 1983 group #WorldCup2011″Advertisement However, he only tagged Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli in the post, leaving out Dhoni and Yuvraj, who’s partnership towards the end of the chase was crucial behind the Men in Blue’s victory in the final in Mumbai.It was surprising to see Shastri not mentioning Yuvi, the Player of the Tournament, or Dhoni’s who’s match winning six brought India the glorious moment, in his post. However, it was just the opportunity Yuvraj needed to pull a witty jab towards his mentor.Although thanking the coach for the congratulatory tweet, the 38 year old all rounder had a subtle touch of humour in his reply: “Thanks senior ! U can tag me and mahi also we were also part of it 😂“ With an astounding average score of 90.50, Yuvraj finished the world cup with 362 runs out of 9 matches, along with an equally impressive spell with the ball- picking up a total of 15 wickets.Dhoni, who won the Player of the Match award in the final, landed a swashbuckling 91 runs from 79 balls, including 8 fours and 2 sixes.Also read-Dissecting the mind of a GOAT: Best excerpts from KP’s lockdown chat with KohliPM Modi called Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli for a meeting – here’s what happened!

LA WOMAN STAKES QUOTES – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2016

first_imgRAFAEL BEJARANO, LUMINANCE, FOURTH AS EVEN MONEY FAVORITE:  “She broke a little slow, so I didn’t have the position I wanted to have early.  She tried really hard, but those fillies didn’t stop.”  TRAINER QUOTES JOCKEY QUOTES            STEWART ELLIOTT, GLORYZAPPER, WINNER: “She ran really well in her last out (her only start on turf) but she just didn’t have that turn of foot on the grass, like a lot of grass horses do. Phil knew it and said he would put her back on the dirt and shorten her up a bit. That’s what she’s good at.“With the way she ran today…she got tested and she fought to win, so I could see the Breeders’ Cup as a possibility.”             PHIL D’AMATO, GLORYZAPPER, WINNER: “She gave us a good performance. She’s always a fighter, she always pushes on. Stewart did a great job. The four (favored Luminance) broke a little slow so Stewart put Gloryzapper into the race early and she fought everybody off.“I love her in this scenario. When she has her head in front of the rest of the opposition, she loves the fight. She loves to hold them off. Passing horses, she’s just ok, but she loves to be in the mix and fight them off.“We’ll see what’s next. Maybe the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint but, we’ll see. We’ll see how she comes out of it.” NOTES: The winning owners are A.C. Hebert, of Vinton, Louisiana, who races as Hebert Bloodstock, Andrew Leggio of Metairie, Louisiana and Peter Peluso of Glen Head, New York.last_img read more
