It was difficult to know if it was day or night or for that matter rain or sunshine, while inside the client’s previous dingy home that stood on this site and they craved for a new lease of life!Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe plot was narrow with an equally tight public road to the west, a private road on the north, a house that abuts the boundary on the south and the client’s brother’s residence at the back. While designing within the possible, 6 x 16mts, foot print for the building, it was clear that a central ventilating volume was necessary to redeem the clients off their misery.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe linear foot print was divided into two east-west bays of 3.3mts and 1.8mts each to which functional spaces were allocated in the possible logical order. The central volume thus achieved was assigned as a landscaped skylight atrium with a stair that connected the two blocks to the east and west. However as the north and south was open, it was necessary to find a solution for a ‘wall’ that was secure, robust, resistant to the harsh tropical weather, perforated to facilitate the much needed ventilation. The ‘Breathing wall’, in corten steel, became an aesthetically pleasing solution to all the functional issues posed by the situation.Save this picture!SectionThe design of this project was developed as a prototype for narrow plots. Though by the virtue of the site condition, minor opening have been provided on the south and north in this project, it is entirely possible to avoid the same and ventilate those areas by opening them into the central volume. Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasProject gallerySee allShow lessHaitang Villa / ARCHSTUDIOSelected ProjectsFilm: Jens Jensen The Living GreenEvent Share Photographs Architects: LIJO RENY architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Structure: Landscape Design: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Thrissur, India CopyAbout this officeLIJO RENY architectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThrissurIndiaPublished on March 16, 2016Cite: “The Breathing Wall Residence / LIJO.RENY Architects” 15 Mar 2016.

ICC World Cup World Cup 2019: Dream 11 prediction for England vs South Africa

first_imgWith less than 24 hours for the mega event to begin, News Nation brings to you as what could be the best combined eleven for the first game in World Cup:Fantasy Cricket 11:Wicket Keepers: Jos Buttler and Quinton de KockBatsmen: Jason Roy, Faf du Plessis (vc), Hashim Amla, David MillerAll-Rounders: Moeen Ali and Ben StokesBowlers: Imran Tahir, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer (c)Teams: EnglandJason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Tom Curran, James Vince, Mark Wood, Liam Dawson.South AfricaHashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis (C), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, JP Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, Dale Steyn, Aiden Markram, Tabraiz Shamsi. New Delhi: After a lot of anticipation, the twelfth edition of ICC World Cup 2019 is set to begin with the host-England taking on South Africa at the Oval in London. The question in front of the host still remains the same, can they lift the World Cup in front of their home crowd? Going by a trend set by India and Australia, and the current form of England, its idea looks well within the cards. The serious business starts and both the teams will be eager to make a mark and gain enough confidence early in the competition. England are the hot favourites to win the title while the Proteas are also a team brimming with talent and experience.It will all be about the nerves in the first few overs for both the sides and it will be interesting to see how things unfold then. As far as the team combination is concerned, Jofra Archer, Liam Plunkett and Chris Woakes seem to make it to the playing XI with Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali as the two spinners. The batting order picks itself. South Africa have an injury issue with Dale Steyn being ruled out of the opening game and Dwaine Pretorius or Chris Morris could play this game.

Teacher, Arts Supporter Cheryl A. Cummings Dies

first_imgCheryl A. Cummings, 56, of Little Silver, formerly of Freehold, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at Riverview Medical Center after a brief illness.Hundreds of mourners gathered at John E. Day Funeral Home in Red Bank on Oct. 31 to say goodbye to Cummings, a treasured friend, noted teacher, arts supporter and enthusiast and devoted mother and grandmother. Friends and colleagues repeatedly remarked how much Cummings had touched thousands of lives.Cummings received her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and her master’s degree from Monmouth University.She recently retired from Brookdale Community College after 28 years as a communications professor and the executive director for the Brookdale Network.Post retirement she embarked on a new career and completed culinary school at Brookdale and started her own pastry chef business called Cher Bread in Little Silver.An avid supporter of Monmouth Arts, Cummings served on the strategic planning committee, the development committee of the MoCo Arts/Business Partnership and was instrumental in the Monmouth County Teen Arts Festival.Cummings was involved with Monmouth Arts as the head of 90.5 The Night and then the Brookdale Network even before she became a board member. As a board member for almost nine years she was instrumental in developing the strategic direction of Monmouth Arts. She used her marketing and leadership skills to further the impact of Monmouth Arts and to benefit the entire arts community.
“Cheryl was the rare leader who saw the big picture and could deal with all the details,” said Mary Eileen Fouratt, executive director, Monmouth Arts. “She led by example and made you want to be better person. We will miss her tremendously but will endeavor to live up to her ideals.”Eileen Moon of Atlantic Highlands said she and Cummings were professional colleagues who shared many associations and interests over the past two decades. “Cheryl was a warm, friendly, competent colleague who shared my love of music and the arts,” she said. “It was great to see her thrive in her second career as a pastry chef and delight in being a new grandmother. I think Cheryl would want us to remember to cherish every day and to value every relationship as I know she did.”“Cheryl was a friend and mentor to so many people in the Two River area and throughout Monmouth County,” said Laura Kirkpatrick, director of Public Information and Tourism, Monmouth County. “Cheryl had a passion for life, friends and family. I am blessed to have crossed paths with her and shared personal and professional experiences. She was an avid student of communications; always helping her friends and students connect with each other to improve their lives and find their passions.”Cummings also served as an advisory board member of the Friends of Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center.last_img read more

Frustrations Continue About Lack Of Parking

first_imgBy John Burton |RED BANK – Business owners and residents again addressed the chronic downtown parking shortfall and its possible solutions this week, reaching no consensus but giving voice to the community on the issue.The Red Bank Business Alliance conducted what participants labeled a town hall-style meeting Monday evening at the Red Bank Middle School, putting options on the table and getting opinions as the borough council awaits proposals for a parking garage.“We need to solve this problem,” said Joel McFadden, an alliance member who owns and operates Joel McFadden Designs, a jewelry design business at 32 White St.The downtown business community has long advocated for a garage in the area to solve the parking shortage, which, with customers complaining about their inability to park, is impacting local businesses’ bottom line.McFadden told the audience in the school’s auditorium he regularly gets phone calls from customers who ask if they can come to his shop on Sunday or after 6 p.m., because of the difficulty and inconvenience of finding available parking. This situation is having an impact throughout the area, McFadden maintained.Compounding the situation is the Count Basie Theatre, which has a planned expansion, and the impact of Red Bank Catholic High School students who drive, McFadden added.“We think it’s important to talk about what can be done,” said Michael Simpson, a local architect and planner, who has some experience dealing with the issue during his years in Red Bank.“It’s a century in the making,” Simpson pointed out of the parking situation, with the rise of the automobile. In 1999-2000 the issue again came to the forefront when then mayor Edward J. McKenna Jr. and borough council planned to bond for $11 million to construct a garage at the White Street municipal parking lot. Those plans were eventually abandoned as the governing body faced fierce opposition from residents who feared their taxes would spike to help businesses they didn’t necessarily patronize.Now, though, the matter is once again on the front burner. The council adopted an ordinance late last year that designated the White Street municipal parking lot as a property in need of redevelopment and has advertised for requests for proposals (RFPs) from private developers for ideas on constructing a possible mixed-use facility with retail and/or residential units, along with parking decks.The RFPs are due by Tuesday, April 26, at 10 a.m.James Scavone, executive director of Red Bank RiverCenter, which manages and advocates for the borough commercial Special Improvement District, said “our ideal” would be a municipal-owned and operated parking facility that provides a net gain of 500 parking spaces to accommodate the district’s need.“Our preference has always been a garage and just a garage,” as opposed to some other type of facility, Scavone said. A mixed-use facility would need additional spaces to address the district and the facility’s needs. Borough officials have said any such facility may have to be as tall as eight stories to cover that need, leading some to voice objections over that size and scope and recently leading to a lawsuit opposing that large of a complex.“We are willing to work with the borough,” Scavone said, to find alternatives that may be amenable to all the parties.The vacancy rate for commercial properties in the downtown is about 6 percent, according to Scavone.But that number is deceiving, maintained John Bowers, a commercial property owner (and landlord for 75 West Front St., where The Two River Times has its offices). Bowers said the upper levels of those commercial buildings, usually designated as office space, are all too often unrented because potential tenants can’t provide parking for clients and employees. That affects the landlord’s profitability. And that, Bowers and others Monday night stressed, means their properties aren’t as valuable as they could be, which in turn affects the tax rate commercial properties pay.With commercial property values not at the levels they should be, the tax burden increasingly shifts onto residential properties. So, Bowers argued, a garage would make the commercial sites more valuable, helping offset residential property taxes.Bowers said he would like to see a municipal garage. That would be profitable for the borough, he and others argued. Currently the Red Bank Parking Utility collects $1.6 million annually from metered spaces.But the idea of a taxpayer-shouldered debt to construct and operate a garage didn’t seem to meet with much approval from residents in attendance.“I don’t buy necessarily that my taxes will go down if you build a parking garage,” countered borough resident Bruce Whitaker.Bowers conducted an independent study, done with local architect Stephen Raciti, indicating a garage facility could be constructed for $16.5 million.“What we want is a project that costs the residents nothing,” that would be self-sustaining, and could be managed by a governmental parking authority, McFadden said.“The purpose of this meeting is to get voices heard,” explained Alan Placer, an alliance member who manages Hobbymasters, 62 White St. This will be the first of a series of conversations.last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (April 9, 2016)–Nick Alexander’s homebred Tough It Out came with a late rush to take command a sixteenth of a mile out en route to winning Saturday’s $200,000 Echo Eddie Stakes at Santa Anita by 4 ½ lengths. Trained by Phil D’Amato and ridden by Joe Talamo, the 3-year-old Grazen gelding got 6 ½ furlongs over a sloppy track in 1:17.60.“This is just a tremendous feeling,” said D’Amato, who registered his second win of the day and now has a commanding five win lead (39-34) in the Winter Meet trainer standings with just one day remaining. “Mike Mitchell (his late mentor) and Nick Alexander. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them.”Off at 5-1 in a field of nine California-bred or sired horses, Tough It Out paid $12.20, $5.80 and $3.40. Out of the Marquetry mare Mark Set Go, Tough It Out picked up $120,000 for the win, more than doubling his earnings to $212,790. The Echo Eddie represents his first stakes win and improves his overall record to 8-2-1-2.“We had a good trip,” said Talamo. “Phil just told me to ride him like Kent Desormeaux on Exaggerator, so we stayed in the five path and went from there. I thought the track was pretty fair for the first few races, and these last few, you can come from behind. It feels great.”Ridden by Gary Stevens, Gold Rush Dancer made a bold move at the rail three furlongs out, opened up by about three lengths with a furlong to run, but was no match for the winner late.Off at 6-1, Gold Rush Dancer finished a length in front of Xingontothebone and paid $8.00 and $4.80.Ridden by Martin Pedroza, Xingontothebone rallied three wide through the lane and proved third-best.
