With all sides of the house opening onto this reflecting pool, it becomes the focal point of house. The house serves as an example that green architecture doesn’t have to mean living in an insulated box divorced from the environment. On the contrary, the house is an inspiration for those looking for a poetic shade of green. Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio Each pavilion contains a central core made of a steel stud frame, covered in translucent blue or red acrylic panels. To maximize energy efficiency, these colorful cores contain all of the service areas of the house. The volumes are staggered to create a deck in the front of the house, as well as a more private patio to the back. The transparent glass bridge visually unites these exterior living spaces. Additional outdoor rooms are created with accessible roofs; the terraces provide space for plants and alfresco dining. Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio The roof space is covered with a retractable awning made of shading tarp for nurseries and hardware from the nautical industry. The structural system is a modular steel frame infilled with thermasteel panels. The design strategy maximizes prefabricated components, eliminating considerable construction waste. The walls utilized a 4×8 module, topped by 12” clerestory windows. Disciplined use of this module allowed for the installation of full sheets of birch plywood, assuring virtually no waste. Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio The thermasteel panels consist of galvanized steel studs with compressed styrofoam, providing a vapor barrier and exceptionally high insulation ratings. No paint was used for walls and concrete floors have been sealed with low VOC sealer. The roof uses a combination of rigid and batt insulation to achieve an insulated R value of 54. The glass walls are double glazed, insulated, tinted and have a low-E coating. Given the hot Texas sun, this high degree of efficiency was critical. The structural frame is exposed, showing the construction process and articulating the house’s facades. Save this picture!1st floor plan The house is oriented around a partial courtyard. With the western wall constructed of insulated SIPS panel the internal walls are free to be open. This allows the majority of the cooling load to be handled with passive natural ventilation. An existing deciduous tree in the center of the ‘court’ provides shade during the summer and allows precious winter light to enter after leaves have fallen. The front yard is xeriscaped with sage, rosemary and oleanders, requiring no water for irrigation. Rainwater from the roof is captured and used for a water garden, which in turn, cools the house both physically and psychologically. Save this picture!2nd floor plan The southern glass façade is covered via a combination of vegetation and a wooden trellis, providing a perfect balance of openness and protection. The design concept was greatly influenced by different regions and cultures. Both the use of the roof as an outdoor living space and the shading devices are derived from Moorish architecture. The body of water and the spatial continuity between inside and outside was inspired by Asian architecture. The structural transparency of the volumes and the minimalist aspect of the interior were derived from Japanese pavilions.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessImagination wins the Troldtekt Award 2012ArticlesHouses + Origins / David Stark WilsonArticles Share “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeBercy Chen StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinHousesUnited StatesPublished on July 04, 2012Cite: “Annie Residence / Bercy Chen Studio” 04 Jul 2012.

HWKN + Handel Architects Break Ground on New Jersey’s Tallest …

first_img “COPY” Save this picture!© Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) + Handel ArchitectsWritten by Karissa Rosenfield Share HWKN + Handel Architects Break Ground on New Jersey’s Tallest Building ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyJersey City’s Journal Square will soon reach new heights, as Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) and Handel Architects have broken ground on what will be the tallest building in New Jersey: Journal Squared. The transit-oriented urban renewal project will be completed in three phases; the first, which will add 540 residential units to the area, is planned for completion in mid-2016. Once the 2.3 million square foot project is complete, three metal panel clad towers will dominated the skyline, ultimately totaling in 1,840 units and reaching up to 70 stories. In attempt to relate to the lower density neighborhood in which surrounds the site, the footprint of Journal Squared will “touch the ground lightly as its mass morphs into smaller units.” Programs, such as retail, restaurants and lobbies, will activate its base, while acres of land previously devoted to surface parking and station loading will be transformed into a “tree-filled plaza” that can host a range of community events. From farmer’s markets to bicycle parking and evening film projections, these events will take place along a pathway of low lying stairs, which will gently slope down to connect with the adjacent Journal Square PATH stop.

Hearing Officer Approves CUP for Annandale Canyon Access Trail

first_img Subscribe Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. 1410 Wierfield Drive Photo courtesy Google MapsA city hearing officer approved a conditional use permit (CUP) that will allow for the establishment of a “park and recreation facility” land use designation at 1410 Wierfield Drive.“The one argument that was raised on several occasions by some of the opponents was there was a citation in the application to the conservancy that talked about the preservation of the property,” said Hearing Officer Paul Novak.“I would add there was nothing that I saw in the documents associated with that grant that would have in any way prohibited what’s being discussed herein,” Novak said.The CUP will facilitate pedestrian access to Annandale Canyon as part of the Annandale Canyon Open Space Trail Access Improvement Project.The project includes a parking lot for six cars at the end of Wierfield Drive, a trailhead, a trail, and an observation point, according to a report on the proposal.“I ardently support the plan to afford public access to a park and recreation facility in Annandale Canyon,” said Roger Wolf in correspondence to the hearing officer.“As one among the principal group of neighbors who worked to preserve this open space, we recognized that enabling our fellow citizens to enjoy and appreciate this last vestige of natural habitat in our backyard is essential to preserving its existence,” Wolf wrote.“Actually, most advocates for aborting the project still want to preserve this precious patch of wildland. Their objections center around a list of potential dangers (fire risk, homeless encampments, crime, littering etc.), all of which are and will be existing problems of the same scale, independent of creation of a park facility. The minimal adverse effects of this project are far outweighed by the potential benefits to our local community.”Several opponents of the project claimed it could increase fire risk and could lead to homeless encampments in the area.“The potential for fire danger is my biggest concern if the canyon becomes accessible to the public,” said Darlene Smith.The trail will be gated during the construction phase. Per the approval of the CUP, signs will be posted prohibiting overnight camping and notifying motorists that their cars are subject to impound if they are in the parking lot at closing time. An emergency communications box could also be placed along the rail.The trailhead would include a bench, a combination trash/recycling receptacle, a series of boulders along both sides of the parking lot, and a security gate to prevent vehicle access after-hours.The 23-acre project site is currently undeveloped and includes an abandoned unpaved graded access road extending to the north from Wierfield Drive that is overgrown in many areas.The proposed trail will be 2,350 feet in length and three to five feet in width depending on any given point along the trail and the terrain and vegetation constraints.The trial will also incorporate the existing abandoned unpaved graded access road, with the exception of the proposed creek crossing, where the trail will utilize a portion of the existing trail.A wooden pedestrian bridge will be built at one drainage site and a proposed observation point would be located atop the San Rafael Hills. The observation point would include installation of a bench, interpretive signs, perimeter railing, and boulders.Upon completion of the project, maintenance of the trail, trailhead, and observation point would occur on an annual basis. Such maintenance would include the removal of trash and debris, trimming of vegetation that may infringe on the accessibility of the trail, and minor trail repairs and improvements for the trail’s overall maintenance.

Added weapons will give Trojans depth

first_imgThe USC men’s basketball team has been undermanned at best through its first two contests this season, but reinforcements are on their way.The Trojans will play host to Coppin State this Friday with the added help of redshirt senior forward Marcus Johnson and redshirt junior forward Alex Stepheson.The return of Stepheson and Johnson is all the more important considering redshirt junior forward Kasey Cunningham’s torn ACL, which will force him to miss the entire regular season.Johnson and Stepheson both missed the season-opening win over UC Riverside and the subsequent loss to Loyola Marymount. USC (1-1) was forced to rely on only seven players in the two games, blowing a 12-point lead in the second half and falling 67-59 against LMU.But beginning this weekend, first-year coach Kevin O’Neill will have added weapons at his disposal in Johnson and Stepheson.Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward, sat out the first two games per an NCAA punishment because of an exhibition game he played in with Connecticut in 2007. The Westchester High product transferred to USC after two seasons with UConn and played 16 games last season with the Trojans.Stepheson practiced with USC all of last year but didn’t play because of NCAA transfer rules. The 6-foot-9, 235-pounder transferred from North Carolina after his sophomore season to be closer to his family, which was dealing with several health concerns.Coppin State, coached by the legendary Ron “Fang” Mitchell, boasts a roster led by guards Lenny Young and Kareem Brown. Young is averaging a team-leading 14.7 points per game this season while Brown leads the team in minutes played with more than 29 per game.Mitchell recorded his 600th win as a head coach at the college level with the Eagles’ victory over West Virginia Tech earlier this month. Coppin State (3-1) is traditionally a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference power.last_img read more
