Located in South-Western Australia, The private residence reflects an approach which distils built form as an expression of landscape and newly formed places connected to place.Save this picture!© John MaddenAs such, the project displays the paired ideas of meandering and built formality, reflecting the relationship between the natural contours of bushland (emblematic of the site’s iconic Margaret River view, with its rolling river headland) and the crisp horizontality of the ocean beyond. The entry approach intentionally wanders through a forest of eucalypts and willow myrtles, guided beyond the turn by low stone walls. These site walls contain the folding landscape and lead visitors to an open court for arrival. Flanked by trees and landscape, the approach to the residence and its distant views beyond are hidden both by forest and walls, becoming larger in height and scale at entry. These stone walls, constructed of locally quarried split boulders become the central spine of the design. While defining a generous sense of place, they conceal the house for discovery and provide a datum for which the residence’s rooms can be sited. The house though concealed, is prefigured by a series of floating rooves above. They orchestrate the visitor’s passage from a lower level entry forecourt through the stone walling. The scale borders on the epic, eliciting a sense of landscape rather than of the domestic house and shed.Save this picture!© John MaddenUpon entry, white canopies float above, sheltering and connecting two building wings. A central courtyard punctuates them, with each space carefully positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views of the coast. The magic of river and ocean become a revelation from the courtyard, its view framed by a feature site wall against the backdrop of its quarried walls and timber-lined canopy. The rooves are transformed from a gesture at entry to expansive planes, echoing the breadth of landscape beyond. The glass ribbon of highlight panels above the house’s teak lined walls, emphasise the white lined soffits, washed in a reflected light by day and an up lit glow at night .The ceilings become a floating island contrasting with the olive backdrop of bush. Save this picture!© John MaddenOnce inside the living wing, the rubble site walls become background to the generously apportioned space contrasting the precision of honed limestone floors, teak lined panels and a meticulously crafted kitchen. The light washed ceilings and floor toning highlight the teak panelling’s and adjacent timber thresholds natural lustre. The interior steps to the lower surrounding balconies, patterned with the filtered shadows of the sliding timber screens. The outdoor living area courtyard separates the guest room wing, connected by a site wall and canopy. The wing’s timber lined walls to the exterior and interior reflect the hospitality of the client, with private landscapes and views provided.Save this picture!© John MaddenCentral to the residence’s interior spaces are the bathrooms, visually connected to both the bedrooms and landscape. They are finely appointed in stone with furniture carefully detailed. Landscape terraces planted with endemic species continue the stone walling from the residence to the landscape beyond, fusing the residence to the bushland site and continue the project’s recurring motif of formal articulation and wandering as a heightened experience.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessKita Göttingen / Despang ArchitektenArticlesHarvard University’s “Putting Public Space in its Place”Event Share Interior Design: Architects: Tierra Design Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/340907/house-in-south-western-australia-tierra-design Clipboard CopyAbout this officeTierra DesignOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesAustraliaPublished on March 07, 2013Cite: “House in South-Western Australia / Tierra Design” 07 Mar 2013.

The theater is also used for a summer workshop for kids. By The Penny Hoarder “The theater is unique to what we do and the atmosphere that is created is diminished when the events held there do not complement or enhance what we do,” Bowden said.The BHS was given permission by the Brundidge City Council to use the building for its theatrical performances in 2002. The building had been gutted by fire about 10 years earlier and was standing vacant. The state’s official folklife play is now in its 16th year.“The BHS has invested a great deal of money in the building and has been greatly assisted by the city and we appreciate the city’s support,” he said. “We are not trying to be selfish; we simply want to preserve what has been created through the hard work, dedication and talents of so many people.” “Because we are family,” she said.In council action, the council voted unanimously to approve the application for a retail liquor license by Frank Wheeler, owner of Ruthie’s Restaurant on Louis Anne Mill Loop. Citing personal reasons, the mayor did not vote.Council Member Arthur Lee Griffin, District 2, said the application has been approved by the ABC board and recommended the license be approved.Ross said the residents in the Mims Creek area of the city are been swarmed by mosquitoes and requested that the area be sprayed weekly rather than every two weeks.Linda Faust, administrative assistant, said mosquitoes are a problem in most all areas of the city and weekly spraying will be done.The council declared eight items surplus property. The items include two 2007 Crown Victoria vehicles, a 2004 Ford Explorer, a 2003 Ford Explorer, a pole trailer, a 1999 John Deere tractor, a Bush Hog and a boom for an electric truck.Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport reported that two suspects in the recent murder that occurred on Walding Circle are in custody, one in the Pike County Jail and another in Colorado.However, Davenport said there are other suspects and the investigation continues. The Brundidge Police Department is being assisted by the Pike County Sheriff’s Department, the District Attorneys Office, the Troy Police Department, Crime Stoppers and the U.S. Marshals.

Abdel Saïd and Bandit Savoie Steal Victory in $401,000 Grand Prix

first_imgUnder the lights in the International Arena at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), Abdel Saïd (EGY) and his own Bandit Savoie stole the show with a stunning victory in the $401,000 Fidelity Investments® Grand Prix CSI5*, on Saturday, March 13, as part of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).Week nine competition concludes on Sunday, March 14, with the $73,000 CaptiveOne Advisors 1.50m Classic CSI5* on Sunday afternoon as part of 12 weeks of international competition. Feature classes are available free live and on-demand on the livestream.In the third CSI5* of the 2021 winter circuit, a field of 39 starters attempted the 1.60m track built by Ireland’s Alan Wade, with nine jumping clear to qualify for the jump-off. Brazil’s Rodrigo Pessoa set the pace early as the first to return aboard Carlito’s Way 6 owned by Artemis Equestrian Farm, LLC, with a clear jumping effort in a time of 41.45 seconds. Their pace was fast, but the door was left open and those who followed found a way in.Fourth of nine to return, Cian O’Connor (IRL) and Kilkenny flew around the shortened track, electing to leave a stride out down the final line and the risk paid off. He and the nine-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding (Cardento x Mhs Pembrook Lady) owned by Ronnoco Jump Ltd moved into the lead with a clear effort, crossing the timers in 39.09 seconds.Next to go, Saïd piloted his 10-year-old Selle Français gelding (Qlassic Bois Margot x Falmera) around the track effortlessly, opting to make up the time through the turns, moving swiftly across the ground in nine strides to the final fence to take over the lead in 38.70 seconds.It was the pair following Saïd that kept everyone on the edge of their seats as the quick combination of Daniel Deusser (GER) and Killer Queen VDM gave it their best effort. Deusser, ranked third in the world, guided the 11-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare (Eldorado Vd Zeshoek x Derly Chin De Muze) owned by Stephex Stables to a clear effort, stopping the clock just one-hundredth of a second off the leading time in 38.71 seconds.In the end, it was Saïd who prevailed to take the victory on the talented gelding he purchased in September from the number one ranked rider in the world, Steve Guerdat.“He is a feisty little horse who is definitely a trier,” said Saïd of the winning gelding. “I love the fire he has in him. It was causing us to have some rails at the past few shows because I didn’t really know him, but I sold my two main grand prix horses earlier in the circuit, so he had to really step up.“I must say today going into the jump-off after the first round I was so happy with how he went,” continued Saïd. “I just wanted to do my own round and see where I ended up. I didn’t really go until I really had to win today, but I like to go in the jump-off, and it just worked out today. Everything clicked a little more, and I was really happy.”Deusser followed up on his fourth-place finish in the WEF 7 CSI5* grand prix ending the evening in second place.“In the last couple of weeks, she has proven herself,” said Deusser. “She is a mare with unbelievable scope and she knows what to do with her range; she wants to leave the poles up. Today was a fantastic round for her. I didn’t get the best distance to the second to last fence. I was really planning to do the eight [strides] and she has a big stride, but I could not make her do it. I was so deep to the second to last fence, and that’s where I lost it.”As the Irish continue to produce clear rounds at WEF, sweeping the top five spots in Thursday’s qualifier, O’Connor kept their podium streak alive as he landed in third in the grand prix.“He’s a super horse,” said O’Connor. “I only got him last September when he was eight years old. It was really a night of firsts for me; first time under the lights, first time [in a] five star, first time jumping water in the big competition, so I didn’t really know what to expect. When I walked the course, I thought it was a very difficult test. The verticals were very tall. I must say the course was nice. This time of year, we’re all just getting up and running and the combinations were fair and Alan [Wade] did a super job with the course. I’m just thrilled with the horse. He was only half a second off my good friend [Abdel] here, so we’re really, really pleased. I couldn’t be happier.”It was a historic night for Saïd as his victory marked the first time an Egyptian rider has won a CSI5* Grand Prix in the history of the Winter Equestrian Festival.“I’m really, really proud,” said Saïd of the opportunity to represent his country in international competition. “Especially now because when my top horses got sold, I felt the pressure of the Olympics and whether or not it would happen. I really felt the pressure the last few shows, and I’m just happy that I have a horse that I can do this with. Obviously, this is a very, very high level and the Olympics aren’t too far away, but we will see where we end up.”In a season filled with the challenges of navigating a global pandemic and protecting horses from the Equine Herpes Virus (EHV), competition has been able to continue at WEF with the health and safety of horses and riders as the number one priority. Many riders have expressed the utmost appreciation for the opportunity to compete at the CSI5* level.“I think we are blessed,” said O’Connor of the current situation. “We spoke about it in the prize giving; to be able to compete here is extraordinary this time of year. The horse show here at WEF does a super job with the COVID protocols and to be able to jump at such a high level and be up and running so early on, we feel privileged. It’s a huge advantage for us because other people aren’t jumping, things are canceled and so on. It’s awful with this [EHV] virus in Europe as well, so we think about everyone who has been affected by that, but we feel fortunate to have planned to come here and that we are all able to jump in a very safe environment.”Following the class, the Herman ‘Kappy’ Kaplan Perpetual Memorial Trophy was presented to Abdel Saïd. The trophy was established for Kappy with fondness by the Farriers of the 1995 WEF.The Martha Jolicoeur Leading Lady Rider Award, in memory of Dale Lawler, was presented by Adrienne Sternlicht (USA), who placed fourth in the grand prix with Cristalline.Four people were honored in special presentations prior to the start of the grand prix. David Distler and Leslie Howard were inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame, while WEF show manager David Burton was presented with the new trophy in his honor, the David E. Burton Jr. Perpetual Trophy for Extraordinary Service and Equestrian Sport Productions President Michael Stone was awarded the Wellington Equestrian Lifetime Achievement Award for their incredible work in the past year to make horse shows possible at PBIEC.$401,000 Fidelity Investments® Grand Prix CSI5*1.

The ships patrol UK and EU waters inspecting fishing vessels at sea and enforcing fisheries regulations on behalf of the Marine Management Organisation, a government agency.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 09, 2012 View post tag: Patrol Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: Royal Navy Patrol Ship Issues Record Fine for Illegal Fishing February 9, 2012last_img read more
