The house is situated in a vast field and the clients requested it be largely open to the surroundings. Therefore large French windows are found in every room and a 200 m² terrace extends every side of the house. The surrounding field is a former meadow in the village of Saint-Sauveur, in the Dordogne departement. Special care was taken with the building volume and the shape of the roof, in order to better blend in with the regional heritage. The geometry of Périgord roofs with four sideshas been recreated in a new way. Accordingly, the deep roof overhangsprotect from the sun and the harsh rain. The skin of the building is made of dark grey metal cladding, which is a reminder of local tobacco dryer architecture, which are long, narrow buildings and their wood skin is covered with motor oil.Save this picture!© Cyrille LallementBudget optimizationAesthetic choices were balanced with the limited budget: few materials and a short building time. The building is built on one floor, with a semi-deep foundation on clay soil. The building is compact: 25 meters long and 5 meters wide. The interior is separated into three sequences based on a regular grid. The facades are symmetrical. The concrete floor finish is the same outside and inside, creating continuity between both areas. The furniture is made from two-layered birch wood and white painted OSB. For the outside skin, the chosen material was to be durable, standardized and prefabricated allowing the house to be built in less than a month. Ten days were necessary to raise the isolated mono-bricks walls, then a week for the isolated metal framing and finally a week for the skin. Save this picture!© Cyrille LallementSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Cyrille LallementTechnical elements made invisibleA special attention to details, especially concerning technical elements, is fundamental to a minimalist approach. Therefore gutters, rain water downspouts and manholes were unobtrusively integrated. A crawl space was made possible thanks to ventilated cladding. A sump was hidden in the garden, to collect rain water. The roof is extended in order to shelter the car and create a porch. Being part of the entrance, parking is integrated in the whole design. The scale and careful details of the house reveal its typology, and make the whole project more refined. As an example, a slight roof overhang is chosen instead of a perimeter detail. A simple bracket replaces industrial angle connectors. The cut-out sheet metal was used in order to hide the window joinery. The cladding edge is sharp so the iron is bent where the cladding stops. As a result, the façade appears continuous and light, enhancing the wave of the iron.Save this picture!© Cyrille LallementSave this picture!SectionBlack is colorThe surrounding landscape is enhanced by the dark metal. The dark shade seems severe but is actually subtle. Texture variations make it ornamental. The metal sheets reflects the sky and the iron waves looks tinted with gold at the beginning and the end of the day. The roof is perforated to filter the sun light. It generates shadows distinctive to the seasons. Outside, precious dark harmony contrasts with the lightness inside. The most used rooms face the garden. The roof bend is softer on the south side. The tall bay windows frame the landscape and asymmetrical casements create sophistication. In the north end, a technical buffer space, including the lengthwise corridor like space, allows thermic optimization. Save this picture!© Cyrille LallementProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Kings Road House / Rudolf SchindlerArchitecture ClassicsSky Walk / Franek ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Saint-Sauveur House / Hors-ChampsSave this projectSaveSaint-Sauveur House / Hors-ChampsSave this picture!© Cyrille LallementHouses•Saint-Sauveur, France “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783834/saint-sauveur-house-hors-champs Clipboard Projects Houses 2015 Area:  135 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Saint-Sauveur House / Hors-Champs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783834/saint-sauveur-house-hors-champs Clipboard Photographs:  Cyrille Lallement Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project France CopyAbout this officeHors-Champs OfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaint-SauveurFrancePublished on March 16, 2016Cite: “Saint-Sauveur House / Hors-Champs ” 16 Mar 2016.

County to Develop Centralized Resource HUB for Transitional Age Foster Youth

first_img The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Kathryn Barger to create an online Centralized Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Hub to provide vital access to programs and services to youth, caregivers, social workers and advocates.The proposed online Centralized Transitional Age Foster Youth Hub will improve the county’s ability to serve Transitional Age Youth as they age out of the foster care system by helping them connect to education, career and housing resources.“The county has created countless programs over the years to provide valuable job training, access to transportation, educational stability and other services to foster youth. Yet, we continue to have a number of Transitional Age Youth exit out of the child welfare system facing poor outcomes and at risk of becoming another devastating statistic of homelessness, substance abuse addiction and mental health issues,” Supervisor Kathryn Barger said. “We need to develop a coordinated system so youth know what is available to them and are connected to the right services at the right time to enrich their lives.”The 4-0 vote gave the Chief Executive Office the directive to explore means to develop and launch the Hub, coordinate with the Office of Child Protection and other relevant departments and agencies, and develop Management Appraisal Performance Program goals to ensure streamlined and effective service delivery.Department of Children and Family Services Director Bobby Cagle cited that there are about 10,000 Transitional Age Foster Youth in Los Angeles County who would benefit from this program.“We have to do what we can to provide them with the tools and resources they need so they can achieve their dreams and live the lives they hope to lead when they reach adulthood,” Cagle said. “As with any vulnerable population, we have learned that individual departments cannot effectively serve a child in isolation. We know that enhanced coordination, along with the better integration of resources, will improve services for our foster youth and help them achieve self-sufficiency.” Top of the News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Subscribe Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

If I get another crack in my windshield…

first_img 92SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Olivier Raoust Olivier Raoust is the founder and creative force behind Raoust+Partners, a brand consultancy that has worked with almost 40 credit unions over the past 20 years. Passionate about credit … Web: www.meetyourstorytellers.com Details Quality service is synonymous with success. If your organization has a remotely decent product offering and can back it up with superior service, prepare for success. Not only can you advertise this unbeatable duo, customer word of mouth will do much of your promotional efforts for you.Look at companies that are well known for excellent service: Amazon.com, Apple, Zappos, Costco, Nordstrom, and even In-n-Out Burger and Chick-fil-A all deliver a positively memorable experience. Getting closer to our financial services industry, American Express is usually tops in the service department, as well.But just as there are many more companies on this stellar customer service list, there are exponentially more that don’t make the grade – not even close. We’ve all been there: on hold for eons or talking to somebody who either doesn’t care or we can’t understand. Nothing makes a consumer hightail it for the hills quicker than bad service.Every once in a while, however, a company that you may have never heard of blows the doors off most any service you’ve experienced in the past – especially in an industry where it’s a challenge to find.One such company is Safelite® AutoGlass®. Safelite is actually America’s largest vehicle glass service that is in an industry notorious for subpar service. The automotive repair/maintenance industry has a bit of a reputation for shady service and pricing, keeping consumers leery and weary of dealing with them. Yes, there are a few exceptions, thankfully. But for most part, however, it’s, again, a challenge to find those diamonds in the rough.Let’s focus on Safelite, shall we. If you haven’t had your car’s windshield repaired or replaced, chances are you’ve never heard of them. So what credit unions can learn from this company that hits a grand slam in service? I mean anybody with a little training can repair a windshield, right? So how can a company that does this, differentiate itself?A couple months ago, my wife’s SUV had a pretty significant crack in its windshield. It was so damaged that it was unsafe to drive. Naturally, I shopped around for windshield repair companies in the area to have them come out for the repair. Most were helpful. But one company clearly stood out from the rest – and that was Safelite. So I decided to give them a try.The result: It was by far the best customer service experience I have had in 10 years. Yes, from a vehicle glass repair company.Here’s how they did it:When I decided to commit to Safelite, I provided them will all my information regarding the windshield replacement. They were to make a “house call” for the repair job. Upon finalizing the repair plans, Safelite emailed me an easy-to-read, graphically branded (familiar logo and color scheme) “Thank you!” note complete with the appointment’s summary:What needed to be repaired?Where the repair will take place?When the repair will occur?How much the repair will cost?My location details (for accuracy)Vehicle’s details (so they have the correct windshield)At the bottom of the clean, HTML email note was an opportunity to ask them any questions or make a possible change to the appointment.Pretty nice for starters, I thought. But I’m sure most reputable companies would do something similar – I hope. But this thank you note really set the stage for what was to come next.What came next was another follow-up email – again, Safelite branded with familiar logo and colors so it’s easy to recognize. This email’s content was quite different, however. It was a Technician Profile, complete with a photo of the technician who would make the repairs, a form letter introducing himself (a letter nonetheless!), and all the logistics of the appointment once again to confirm.This Technician Profile email/letter blew me away. Now, I know what the technician looks like, his name, and all the appointment’s detailed information. Very thorough and safe. But Safelite didn’t stop there. In the far right column of the email were sections on “Knowing Who to Expect” and “Technicians & Materials You Can Trust”.Both of these sections reaffirmed that their technicians had extensive training, meeting or exceeding industry standards – along with the company using quality materials to ensure safety and performance.Now all of this can be left unsaid. Of course, you want your technicians to be trained properly, thoroughly checked out, have clean driving records, and use quality materials that ensure safety and performance. But to receive a letter clearly stating these facts sets one’s mind at ease – even if it all should be done anyway. For a company to take the time to clarify and inform is simply top-notch customer service. They didn’t have to – and they have even trademarked the reliability and safety process as the Safelite Advantage™. Winners always take the extra step.And one more thing, the email reads toward the end:“As an additional safety measure, the technician will conduct a vehicle inspection prior to starting the service.”I know this is probably a given, but it ensures accountability for both parties if there is already any damage to the car before the repair. Safelite also gives you a Pre-Authorization sheet prior to starting the repair with the inspection details, repair costs, contact info, and automobile description. On my form, it pointed out that we already had some scratches on the hood, which I acknowledged. We were good to go.The actual repair, which was performed very professionally – and successfully, was almost an afterthought. Like clockwork, the technician arrived at the designated time and took the allotted duration to replace the windshield.Immediately following the repair, Safelite emailed me another branded, thank you note with the work order number, date of service, and details of the job. They also touted, again, their Safellite Advantage messaging – furthering affirming in my mind that I received the best possible service, materials, and lifetime guarantee.When I thought the whole process was complete. I received one more piece of information from Safelite – an easily recognizable, branded customer survey. Many of you will probably poo-poo post repair surveys as a waste of time. But for companies that truly care, this data is vital feedback on performance to uphold their service quality and continue to improve. A service business relies on their reputation for future business. I promptly filled it out, which took all of two minutes.Ok, stepping back into credit union land – how many of you have a seamless pre- and post-service process like Safelite’s? I’m guessing not many. What are you doing before, during, and after the loan process, the financial planning meeting, signing up for a new account or service? What are you doing for your member that is a truly memorable experience?Safelite was a memorable experience. In fact, I’m telling all my friends, family, and professional peers about it. I’m even writing a story on it. From start to finish, I was fully informed of the repair’s logistics, fully affirmed of my technician’s capabilities (and who he was), fully confident with a lifetime guarantee, and fully satisfied with a job well done.Best of all, none of these efforts Safelite conducted is rocket science. It’s simple. It’s making the extra effort to care – and that pays off huge in the end. Credit unions are always looking for a differentiator and service has been their claim to fame for a long time. But banks are catching up in this regard to win back many customers they lost during the recession. It’s time for your credit union to act more Safelite-ish and walk the talk.If I get another crack in my windshield, it’s a no brainer who I will call.last_img read more
