Its curved forms are clad in solid oak boarding to add to a carefully selected palette of natural materials – limestone flooring, exposed brickwork walls and restored Baltic pine floorboards. The interiors are expressed as a series of fluid surfaces and flowing spaces that weave through the home, leading one towards a rear garden that gently extends over the dining room as a green roof of wildflowers.Save this picture!Section BBGenerously lit indoor family rooms open up and connect with west-facing outdoor spaces. Contemporary forms reveal and celebrate the character of the original house, allowing vertical pools of natural light to wash over exposed brickwork and cleanly composed surfaces.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. The Mornington Peninsula house is located in Mornington on a sloping forested site with panoramic views across Port Phillip Bay. This beautiful site also contained challenges such as a single storey covenant and the potential for bushfires. The large home includes a gym, theatre, meditation room, reading room, sauna, and large garage. Rather than designing a single building, Turco and Associates divided the extensive program into two buildings to enhance views, solar access, and connection to the outdoors from all rooms. The division of the program also allowed for an internalised outlook from many rooms, providing a sense of containment to this private family.Save this picture!© Tom RossAn existing pair of established eucalypts located in the centre of the site was retained, forming the centrepiece of a series of courtyards which snake their way between the two forms. A pair of glazed bridge links connect the primary sleeping areas located in the northern building with the living areas located within the southern building, creating a necessary immersion in nature as occupants move throughout the building.Save this picture!© Tom RossSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tom RossThe geometry of the house is informed by the desire to capture views, resulting in a pair of angular forms. Dark metal cladding at the rear of each building grows out of the ground to become the angular roof form, culminating in a pair of large cantilevered eaves which protect decks below. This location of these elevated decks at the front of the house allows expansive views across Port Phillip Bay from the living areas and master bedroom while shielding the view into these rooms from the street.Save this picture!© Tom RossSave this picture!Sections and elevationsSave this picture!© Tom RossA raw material palette is used throughout the home, emphasizing and highlighting the surrounding bushland. Insulated precast concrete wall panels form a background to feature planting and existing vegetation while dark brown anodised aluminium cladding subtly reflects the green tones of the surrounding forest. Local sandstone used in the landscaping also appears internally in feature joinery items and Australian hardwood timber is used in areas throughout the house to help provide warmth to internal spaces.Save this picture!© Tom RossA series of landscaped spaces defined by the two buildings are each suited to particular uses and are linked by a water feature that flows beneath the bridge links. Turco and associates worked closely with the landscaper, a landscape architect, and an arborist throughout the design process to establish a harmonious integration between the architecture and the landscape and to retain as much of the existing vegetation as possible.Save this picture!© Tom RossProject gallerySee allShow lessA COVID-19 Memorial Could Capture the Passions Coursing Through American SocietyArticlesGrayson Play-Lab for Adolescent Education / Matter DesignSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Morninton Peninsula House / Turco and Associates “COPY” Morninton Peninsula House / Turco and AssociatesSave this projectSaveMorninton Peninsula House / Turco and Associates 2010 Photographs:  Tom Ross Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeTurco and AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on September 07, 2020Cite: “Morninton Peninsula House / Turco and Associates” 07 Sep 2020.

Mental Health campaigners slam lack of council support

Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE Stand Up For Mental Health (SUFMH) campaign has slammed Limerick City and County Council for not providing substantial funding for Mental Health in its budget approved last Friday.Sinn Féin councillor John Costello put forward a motion on behalf of the campaign for an amendment to the draft budget to include funding for a mental health programme to be provided for all schools in Limerick, which has the highest rate of adolescent self-harm in the country.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And although the SUFMH campaign was commended for its work, only Labour, Sinn Féin, Social Democrats and the Greens voted in favour of the motion.“Limerick City and County Council had the opportunity to show some leadership, innovation and empathy by funding this prevention programme. Instead, they completely exonerated themselves from any responsibility and have blatantly disregarded the mental health crisis in Limerick,” claimed SUFMF activist Seónaidh Ní Shíomóin.“Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael ought to be ashamed of themselves, for voting through a budget which gives millions to the millionaires – namely JP McManus and his Ryder Cup, and nothing for our chronic mental health crisis.“It’s very clear where their priorities lie, and it certainly isn’t with the ordinary people of Limerick.“We aren’t defeated by a long shot and we aren’t deterred. We have a meeting with council officials this week where we will put our case forward which obligated the council to take action, by putting some funding in place. We’re only getting started,” Ms Ní Shíomóin added.

Accounting technician apprentice scheme to create 20 Limerick jobs

Where Young Millennials Are Buying Homes

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Where Young Millennials Are Buying Homes  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago According to the realtor.com, the younger group of millennials is more optimistic when it comes to homebuying. In an article titled, “Where 20-Somethings Actually Buy Homes: The 10 Hottest Cities for Young Millennials,” realtor.com lists the metropolitan areas* with the most home buyers still in their 20s as well as the Generation Z.The article pointed out that while millennials have been the biggest chunk of U.S. home buyers already for a few years, the younger half is all set to hit the housing market. Over the next five years, those born between 1989 and 1993, will hit their 30’s—the core first-time home-buying years. It is this group, noted realtor, that will “help determine where the next “hot” markets are and what the most desirable homes of the future will be. Commenting on the trend, Jason Dorsey, President at Center for Generational Kinetics said, “Younger Americans don’t have the baggage of the recession and are better positioned to become home buyers—and reverse some of that narrative that millennials aren’t buyers.”Dorsey cited cost as the driving factor of where they want to settle down. “They need to be in a place where they think there are enough job opportunities and job security for them to make the commitment to buy a home,” he added. To figure out where 20- to 29-year-olds are buying the most homes, Realtor.com calculated where millennials took out the highest percentage of mortgages in 2018 in the 200 largest metropolitan areas. Based on the ranking which was limited to one metro per state to ensure geographic diversity, the report listed the top hot spots for buyers in their 20s.Evansville, Indiana topped the list with a median list price of $155,000 and the percentage of mortgages issued to buyers aged 20 to 29 at 33.2 percent. This was followed by Duluth, Minnesota; Clarksville, Tennesse; Lafayette, Los Angeles; and Des Moines, Iowa. Read the full report here.

One dead, 12 missing after 190-foot lift boat capsizes off Louisiana coast

first_imgU.S. Coast Guard photo courtesy of Coast Guard Cutter Glenn Harris(NEW YORK) — A massive lift boat capsized off the southern coast of Louisiana on Tuesday as severe storms moved through the region, killing one and leaving a dozen on board still missing.SEACOR Marine, the ship’s owner, said there were 19 people — employees and contractors — on board at the time the bad weather hit. Initially, officials said they believed 18 people were on board.One person was found dead on the surface of the water, while six were rescued and 12 others remain missing, Capt. Will Watson from U.S. Coast Guard New Orleans said Wednesday at a press conference.The 190-foot commercial ship flipped about 7 miles south of Port Fourchon, located about 20 miles west of Grand Isle, where a Coast Guard station is located. The ship was initially identified by the Coast Guard as being 129 feet.“What we know of the weather conditions at the time, we had 80 to 90 mph winds and 7 to 9 foot seas,” Watson said. “That’s challenging under any circumstance. We don’t know the degree to which that contributed to what happened, but what we do know those are challenges conditions to be out in a maritime environment.”The U.S. Coast Guard and good Samaritan boats responded to the scene, according to USCG Heartland. The Coast Guard received the distress call around 4:30 p.m. local time. Coast Guard officials said they arrived to the spot of the radio beacon with 30 minutes.One person was rescued by the Coast Guard Cutter Glenn Harris, while another Coast Guard ship from Grand Isle located a second person. The other four people were rescued by good Samaritans, the USCG said.The vessel remains overturned on its starboard side and is partially submerged and grounded in about 55 feet of water, Watson said Wednesday.SEACOR Marine confirmed to ABC News that the lift boat involved is the SEACOR Power. It’s used in oil and gas exploration.In addition to the Glenn Harris and two 45-foot ships from Coast Guard station Grand Isle, the Coast Guard Cutter Amberjack, an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from the USCG station New Orleans and an HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane from USCG station Corpus Christi were searching for additional people in the water.Severe storms have swept through southern Louisiana on Tuesday. A flash flood watch and wind advisory were in effect for Grand Isle with the National Weather Service predicting 1 to 2 inches of rain and wind gusts over 50 mph Tuesday night.ABC News’ Darren Reynolds contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Mayor’s Update – No Dredge Materials for Shelter Road

first_imgThe city’s recycling yard on Shelter Road was being considered as a temporary site for disposing of dredge materials. Dear Friends,I met this morning with representatives of the Ocean Reef Condominium Association and let them know that Ocean City will not pursue a proposed program for transferring dredged material at the Shelter Road Recycling Center.Throughout my administration, I have always sought public feedback in the very early stages of any major project or new initiative. This information is extremely valuable to the success of any endeavor. In this case, there was an overwhelming amount of support both for and against the idea of using Shelter Road to help add capacity to our 2017 dredging program. While all of this input was considered, the primary factor in the decision was practical. It is just not feasible or financially viable to relocate all of the Public Works operations at Shelter Road to other parts of Ocean City.ACT Engineers continues to pursue an array of options for de-watering and transferring dredged material, and the emptying of Site 83 (near Roosevelt Boulevard) by truck continues to make good progress. The permitted season for dredging starts on July 1, and I anticipate holding another town hall meeting to share details about our 2017 dredging program well in advance of that date. As you all know by now, the dredging of our lagoons and back bays is not a simple problem to solve. But I remain committed to getting it done as quickly and efficiently as possible.I’m sad to report that Bill Morey died this week at the age of 87. Morey was a pioneer in the amusements industry and one of the founders of Morey’s Piers in Wildwood. He and his family have been great community servants, not only for Wildwood but for the entire region. I’d like you to join me in offering condolences to all of Morey’s family and friends.Finally, I ask everybody to monitor weather conditions over the next few days. The forecast calls for heavy rain and strong northeast winds from Sunday afternoon through Monday night. The storm could cause minor tidal flooding, so be prepared to moved vehicles from streets that typically experience flooding. High tides are at 4:39 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday (Jan. 23).I hope you all have a great weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorlast_img read more
