For example, the rugby coach who’s out in all weathers helping you to perform at your best, the team captain who always ensures the club is represented in major competitions, the committee members who are committed to developing the club and the players who always bring refreshments for the squad are all people within the rugby community who deserve the chance to carry the Olympic flame.

He is an inspirational man and an amazing coach, I have seen him coach some of the best rugby but also instill morals for life into myself and my team mates. I will always remember his words “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail!” The most amazing thing however is how he has just overcome a severe case of prostate cancer, but he now continues to coach and teach inspiring others in his life.”There are unsung heroes like Paul Fowler within the rugby community who deserve the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the London 2012 Olympic Flame.

The wood creates a specific environment to which the building form can relate and, when full-grown, the trees will help to create a pleasant distance between apartments, giving their inhabitants the feeling of being in their own park without abandoning a vital density. Save this picture!© Philippe Ruault The apartments are unusually spacious, around 150 sqm, and unusually long, about 30 m. The building’s E-shape gives half of the apartments a triple orientation, with internal visual connections between facades. To the south, foldable glass walls open to loggias with thick rectangular railings. The undersides of the loggias and the railings are tinted with a gradation of bordeaux reds, creating an abstract linear pattern on the south facade. On the north facade, winter gardens are enclosed by vertical glass panels of varying transparency, a reference to French ateliers d’artiste (artist’s studios). Save this picture!© Philippe Ruault On the lateral facades, which face the courtyards, the primary focus is the pleasure of colours and reflections.

Cariló House / Luciano Kruk

It withholds a natural pine forest reserve, dunes and extensive beaches which led Cariló become one of the most important touristic centers and an ideal place to live, 360km away from the City of Buenos Aires.The house is named after the town it is built in. It is placed on a corner lot one block away from the sea. Its proximity to the beach makes a less leafy and more arid scenery, which encouraged us to intervene the landscape. A steep slope descends from the back of the terrain, just like a dune does towards the sea.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe commission consisted on a vacation home including a master suite connected with a social area, an independent guest area, an outdoor lounge, a barbeque area, a swimming pool, and a solarium. The clients emphasized the importance of landscape views and the protection from the cold South-East winds from the sea.In order to fulfill these requirements, the house was placed on the highest level of the lot, three meters above the street level. The principal areas were disposed on a platform supported by the guest and service area, flying over a parking space. This disposition results in two separate volumes connected by a vertical circulation.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe main platform -with side to side views and glaze paneled from floor to ceiling- overlooks the sea on one end, and on the other to its private garden -designed by the client, as she is a landscaper herself-. While the ground floor has views of the garden too, its windows are more constrained to ensure its proper temperature control and privacy.The social area expands towards a wooden deck. On its semi-roofed section it is located the barbeque, an outdoor lounge and a dining area. In its uncovered space, the solarium lies at the edge of the swimming pool. From the deck, overlooking the garden and sheltered from the wind, the sunset can be contemplated framed by the surrounding trees.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe landscape can be appreciated looking over the neighboring houses from the terrace, designed on top of the main volume. The stairs, contained by two concrete walls, lead to an intimate space containing one concrete bench: your own private lookout from where to observe the sea.The structural wall that helps organize the barbeque area protects the semi-covered deck section and the sitting area from the horizontal sun rays coming from the West. Likewise, concrete screens hanging from the first floor slab, shields the master bedroom from the sun and filter the views from the deck.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe guest and service volume rests completely over the terrain while it supports one of the ends of the main volume. One of the main challenges was to find a solution to the structural support of the other end. It was decided to concentrate the whole load of the hanging volume on one point: a triangular column. As its conic section would decrease in size towards the ground, it would liberate the floor plan –unlike most traditional solutions-. In addition, the slab hides a beam inside its core which runs all along its length. This structure works as an I-beam in which the lower wings rise until they reach the borders of the slab avoiding frontal beams in sight.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe master bathroom, the only closed space over the principal platform, articulates the sleeping and living spaces and at the same time takes a structural role by transmitting its loads to the triangular column below. For its distance from the glazed panels, it takes in sunlight from a dome light that works as the bench on the terrace’s lookout.All framings were materialized on dark bronze anodized aluminum in an attempt to render them invisible and deepen the contrast between the emptiness and the color of the concrete that surrounds it. Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenOn both longitudinal borders, without visible lower beams and to the setback of the upper inverted beams, the framings are given free ride to run from one end to the other. A lighting rail runs linearly on both facades, reinforcing the volumes’ horizontal proportion.It was essential that those who inhabit Carilo House can enjoy this balsamic place with all their senses. It is hard to separate the stoutness of the built object and the landscape´s sensitivity. The term landscape recalls our objective in this and every other project: the coexistence between the house and its surrounding nature.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenProject gallerySee allShow lessCentre Pompidou hosts Living Sculptures investigating Life in a Digital AgeArchitecture NewsRunning with Michel Rojkind: An Exclusive Conversation with the Rockstar Mexican Arc…Articles Share 2018 ArchDaily Photographs Save this picture!© Daniela Mac Adden+ 33Curated by Clara Ott Share “COPY”center_img Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeLuciano KrukOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCariloOn InstagramArgentinaPublished on February 21, 2019Cite: “Cariló House / Luciano Kruk” [Casa Cariló / Luciano Kruk] 21 Feb 2019.

The overall feeling of the three-storey residence in Melbourne, Australia is lightness – almost an ethereal floating quality created by the sun refracting over the granite façade. This is a contradiction to the reality of the 260 tons of granite which make up the building’s skin. Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe use of materiality and detailing also provides a similar contradiction in the form. The natural texture and irregularity of the split-faced material blurs the hard lines of the stacked rectilinear building. While the building is strong it sits quietly in its surroundings.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe use of three types of granite unifies the external and internal spaces. While all the materials are all substantial, when used together, there is evenness through the house. In order for this to work, the architectural detailing was integrated with fine craftsmanship by the builders and stone masons. Working together, we were able to create subtle variation in the materials and intricate details where slight change finish makes the same material fit for different function or application. In a few places this required thinking of atypical applications for the stone working with suppliers to push custom fabrications to add to the overall unification, especially in the master ensuite where a custom bath and basin where engineered from solid blocks of stone.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeWhile there is permanence to the structure, the internal spaces are light and open, particularly in the living area where the fully retractable glazed doors open onto the adjacent courtyard.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe program for the house responded to the clients who were downsizing from a large family house to one that was more focused. While still accommodating rooms for visiting adult children, the house is centred around its use primarily by the couple. The rooms are purpose-built to meet their needs including shared study and extra-large master ensuite including a private outdoor shower in a secluded Japanese garden. This is a particularly unexpected detail in an urban property.Save this picture!Ground Level PlanSave this picture!© Peter ClarkeSave this picture!Level 1 PlanWith a holistic approach, the in-house multi-disciplinary design team considered all elements of landscaping and interiors within the architecture plans. The landscaping responds to the clients’ desire to have diverse planted outlooks and terraces without the maintenance of a full lawn. Behind the privacy fence, giving little away to the street, a grove of Mount Fugi under planted with rosemary greet visitors when they enter the site. The kitchen and other living spaces direct sightlines to low maintenance plantings on the terrace.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeOriginally published on November 30, 2017Project gallerySee allShow lessHEI Homestay / HEI Architectural Design StudioSelected ProjectsA House for All Seasons / Poly StudioSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Peter Clarke Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Australia Armadale Residence / B.E ArchitectureSave this projectSaveArmadale Residence / B.E Architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

Thumbs down for training revamp

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Thumbs down for training revampOn 29 Feb 2000 in Personnel Today The Government has come under more fire over its training strategy as itlaunched a major shake-up of vocational training.Education and Employment Secretary David Blunkett made the expected promiseof more financial incentives for employers to offer Modern Apprenticeships(News, 1 February).But specialist trainer and consultant Paul Kearns said the Government hasfailed to learn from previous initiatives which bolster the supply of schemeswithout checking if employers need them.”Saying ‘We need Modern Apprentices’ and then trying to find people totake them on is very different from businesses demanding them,” saidKearns.Kearns’ criticisms follow those of training managers who hit out at theplans to coerce employers into forcing more trainees through apprenticeships.But the DfEE denied it is neglecting employers’ needs. It argued that thesewill be built in to the strategic National Learning and Skills Council, toreplace the Tec system from April 2001.Lifelong learning minister Malcolm Wicks last week announced thatemployer-led national training organisations will have a formal role in informingthe strategy of the new Learning and Skills Council.The new programme of skills dialogues – forums run by NTOs to assess theskills needs of each sector – “will produce first-class credibleassessments of industry’s skill requirements,” said Wicks.The restructure of vocational training, announced by Blunkett, includes thefollowing changes:• National Traineeships will become known as Foundation ModernApprenticeships.• Entry requirements for Modern Advanced Apprenticeships will be tightened,and minimum periods of learning will be specified.• GNVQs will now be known as Vocational A-levels.Writing in this issue, Blunkett said critics ignored the remedial worknecessary on basic skills. “More than 30 per cent of adults do not havefive good GCSEs or the vocational equivalent.”By Philip Whiteleylast_img read more
