LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. The Hamersley Road Residence is the conversion of an early 1900’s Australian workers cottage to a practical, modern family residence. The external timberwork, moulded plaster, handmade tiles and flannel flower glass of the existing house give the home a distinct arts and crafts aesthetic. The house had been untouched for many years. As the new owners, and as an Architect and Interior Design team, we wished to provide a functional home for our family with flexibility for now and into the future. We also wished to respect and enhance the existing craftsmanship.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanAs we were designing a home for our family, we wanted to optimise the space of the relatively small site area. We were able to do this through the use of pure forms such as the ‘courtyard’ and the ‘box’.Save this picture!© Christian SprogoeTo the rear of the existing home we constructed a ground floor extension that envelopes a landscaped courtyard. Building to two boundaries and focusing the new ground floor rooms into the courtyard assisted in the creation and then blurring of the boundaries between indoor and outdoor. The intent was to provide multiple spaces of differing character, to be used at different times of the day and year, some inside and some outside.Save this picture!© Christian SprogoeThe upper level addition is delineated from the existing house by taking the form of a pure yellow ‘box’ gently placed on top of the ground floor behind the gable of the existing home. The Box is then further wrapped in a perforated screen to shade and protect it from the sun.Save this picture!© Christian SprogoeThe conception of the ‘box’ is integral to the design of this house. Internally, the box is its own zone; bedrooms, bathroom and play room for the children. Externally the box defines the character of the extension, highlighting the change from existing house to contemporary home in a sympathetic but contrasting manner.Save this picture!© Chris MaherThe intricately patterned and visually permeable screen envelops the box on all sides. The pattern is inspired from the floral motif of the original carpet and fireplace tiles; although given a contemporary edge. This screen provides visual richness, shade and protection to openings whilst offering opportunities for passive surveillance of the street. At night, the screen is illuminated, glows and provides a moment of joy for the neighbourhood.Save this picture!© Christian SprogoeThroughout the design process, we re-used and recycled elements of the existing home to create a story of restoration. This included recycling bricks, light fittings, and even the old laundry trough, which is now a thriving herb garden. The original tin awning on the front of the existing house was resurrected with a coat of Dulux Weathershield in ‘Happy’ to match the ‘box’.Save this picture!© Chris MaherDespite being untouched for over 90 years, the existing home was rescued and rejuvenated. The honest values of the house have been maintained, continued and extended into the new addition, to breathe life into the existing cottage and to create a “happy” and contemporary family home.Project gallerySee allShow lessNorman Foster Joins Hollywood Stars in Petition Against Venice Cruise ShipsArchitecture NewsHouse in Gokurakuji / Naoya Kawabe Architect & AssociatesSelected Projects Share Photographs 2013 Architects: Studio53 Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Year:  photographs:  Christian Sprogoe, Chris MaherPhotographs:  Christian Sprogoe, Chris Maher ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/531301/hamersley-road-residence-studio53 Clipboard CopyAbout this officeStudio53OfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionSubiacoHousesRefurbishmentAustraliaPublished on July 30, 2014Cite: “Hamersley Road Residence / Studio53” 30 Jul 2014.

Governor Wolf Announces Investments to Bolster Pennsylvania’s Workforce Skills

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces Investments to Bolster Pennsylvania’s Workforce Skills November 06, 2019 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Press Release,  Workforce Development Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that more than $7.8 million in training assistance funding was provided to 745 Pennsylvania companies through the commonwealth’s Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania. This year marks 20 years of partnerships and funding assistance for qualified businesses in the state, with 20,683 companies providing training for 1,238,915 existing staff members.“Continuing education and workforce training allow everyone a path to future success and is a way for employers and employees to show allegiance and good faith in each other,” said Gov. Wolf. “It’s pivotal in strengthening our state’s workforce, our communities, and ultimately, our economy.”Last fiscal year, the commonwealth invested $7,896,801 in trainings and provided 30,460 employees with access to education in the areas of Essential Skills and Advanced Technology. Essential Skills training can include guidance in the areas of communication and teamwork, health and safety, business and computer operations, manufacturing fundamentals, and quality assurance. Advanced technology training can include guidance in the areas of advanced manufacturing technology, advanced software implementation, computer programming, and software engineering.“Job training helps people achieve their career goals and improve their quality of life, and workforce development is one of the strongest drivers of our economy,” said Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin. “WEDnetPA isn’t just a tool to help workers further their careers; it’s a tool that has helped us attract and retain businesses and grow Pennsylvania’s economy for the past two decades, and will continue to do so for decades to come.”“While other states also offer resources to help companies close the skills gap, WEDnetPA is unique in its approach,” said Statewide Director Thomas Venditti. “By networking with 25 colleges and universities, we leverage their existing professional workforce development staff to create a highly cost-effective way to provide help with incumbent worker training.”Workforce training grants align with Governor Wolf’s PAsmart workforce development initiative. The governor launched the innovative PAsmart initiative last year and secured a $10 million increase to $40 million for the program this year. PAsmart provides $20 million for science and technology education, $10 million for apprenticeships and job training, and new this year, an additional $10 million for career and technical education.This year’s annual report is available online.For more information about the Wolf Administration’s commitment to workforce development, visit the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) website or follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube.last_img read more

Police target patrons of underage prostitutes

first_img3 News 16 June 2012Police in South Auckland have run a major operation to get underage prostitutes off the street. Girls as young as 13 have been selling themselves for sex, some for as little as $20, in order to buy alcohol. One teenage prostitute we met is just 17 years old. We won’t name her identity because her parents don’t know she’s a street worker. “I don’t do this for drugs, or anything like that,” she says. But she’s being pimped by her uncle. “There are some other fellows with some underage girls around here,” says her uncle. “They’re only hating on her because she’s getting most of the business.”…In the past month, police have run a major operation in South Auckland in an attempt to rid the streets of underage prostitutes. They came across some horror stories. “There were some youths, kids, roughly 13 years of age, selling themselves for roughly $20 in order to afford alcohol,” says Sergeant Kit Gill. During the operation police took a number of underage sex workers into the care of Child, Youth and Family. “There are some unsavoury characters that turn up and start hitting on these poor girls,” says Constable Steve Downie. “We do get calls to go and help them out because they might have got assaulted or the guys not happy with the service they have performed, so they are taking their lives into their own hands.”http://www.3news.co.nz/Police-target-patrons-of-underage-prostitutes/tabid/423/articleID/257983/Default.aspxlast_img read more

England Golf celebrates the game’s hidden heroes

first_imgThe amazing army of volunteers who make the difference in golf is being celebrated by England Golf this week.  To mark Volunteer Week, the organisation is saying a big thank you to the 100,000+ people who give their time to support and grow golf in England.It is also pledging its commitment to support volunteers so they have a great experience, can connect with each other to improve their skills, and know that their contribution is valued.Volunteers are the backbone of clubs and counties and also take on a wide range of roles at national level.  Matt Bloor, England Golf Volunteer Manager, said: “Volunteers are vital to golf and the game as we know it wouldn’t survivewithout them. They really are the hidden heroes of the game.“They work across every area of the sport, they’re crucial to the club structure and they’re involved at all levels, from encouraging new players to nurturing the most talented golfers.“This week is our opportunity to highlight their work and to draw attention to the pledges to support them which have been made by ourselves and partner organisations.”Individual volunteers who were thanked included Norfolk’s Sammy Martin and Angela Loveday.  They set up a scheme at Royal Norwich Golf Club to give new golfers a great experience and keep them playing.Meanwhile in County Durham, new volunteers are swinging into action thanks to a partnership project run by the county union and England Golf.  “The county needed to recruit more volunteers and we supported them with publicity, flyers and content for their website. As a result about 10 people expressed interest and most are now actively involved,” said Matt Bloor.Durham County Union Secretary Jonathan Ward commented: “England Golf was a great help in providing guidance and support in putting together a project to help us recruit new volunteers to support our varied work.“From advising on a marketing plan, to providing templates to save time, they helped to bring the idea of volunteering in golf in Durham to the forefront of golfers’ thoughts.”Click here for further information about volunteering.Caption: Volunteer referee Sue McKeon in action at the Brabazon Trophy (image copyright Leaderboard Photography) Tags: England Golf, Volunteer 7 Jun 2018 England Golf celebrates the game’s hidden heroes last_img read more

Adopt-A-Pet Dog of the Week

first_imgFacebook50Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Adopt-A-Pet of SheltonLook at that happy face! Sattin is a young Labrador Retriever mix with a beautiful black shiny coat and sparkling brown eyes. This energetic young girl is about 18 months old. She is still learning and needs a patient owner who will continue to work with her and give her lots of attention, exercise, and love.Sattin is a work in progress but everyone who has worked with her can see so much potential if she can be kept busy and out of trouble. She would probably do best with an active family who can spend time training and exercising this smart, athletic girl. We would not recommend young children because of her high energy level.For the right family who can let Sattin enjoy the pleasures of being a young and playful dog while working with her to learn self-control, Sattin could be the dog you have always been looking for.We have lots of great dogs at our dog shelter on Jensen Road in Shelton, which we list on our website at www.adoptapet-wa.org and on our Facebook page.  We always welcome volunteers and donations to help care for them.  Contact us at www.adoptapet-wa.org or contact us at [email protected] or (360) 432-3091.last_img read more
