We live in a time where smart phones and tablets are in everyone’s hands and multitasking is the normal way of life. Influenced from the client’s multitasking lifestyle, a diverse set of requirements developed for a new home.  The clients, one of whom is the owner of a public relations company, requested that multiple activities could take place throughout the house without interruption; a dinner party could take place while simultaneously entertaining a group of children, or guests could come and go without disturbing the rest of the family. These programmatic requests diagrammatically divide the site as well as establish view corridors from front to back. Transparency through the house puts simultaneous activities on display, and provides a setting where guests can see and be seen.

Each box has independent audio, video, and climate control to operate autonomously and the length, height, and volume of each of the box is adjusted to appropriately encase the program. On the exterior, interstitial spaces between the arranged boxes are gardens and patios. The overlap of the boxes on the interior creates thresholds and highlight interesting moments.  With each box occupying a specific program, the multitasking of different events is achieved.

To use the stone as an exterior cladding, a custom hanging system was designed. The travertine siding is captured at the top and bottom by a CNC wire formed frame and overlapped by the following course above. The proportion and repetition of the siding references the wood shingle vernacular ubiquitous in the area.

The overlapping, repeating bronze components were digitally fabricated and assembled on site.  Different patina processes were studied to achieve the dark bronze facing the room and the polished bronze on the interior of the hood. Sunlight from above is reflected by the polished bronze and filters through the gaps from the overlapped construction. Similar construction methods were utilized for the master bedroom headboard using repeating strips of belting leather.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Bates Masi ArchitectsThe separation of program into individual volumes allows the multitasking lifestyle of the clients to continue into their home.  Where multitasking on a daily basis can seem chaotic, a new order is developed by the architecture.  The client’s new home allows them to keep up with their busy lifestyle while also providing respite from it.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessInnovative, Bioclimatic, European School Complex Second Prize Winning Proposal / Var…ArticlesNew Culture Centre and Library Winning Proposal / schmidt hammer lassen architectsArticles Share “COPY” Sam’s Creek / Bates Masi ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSam’s Creek / Bates Masi ArchitectsSave this picture!Courtesy of Bates Masi ArchitectsHouses•Bridgehampton, United States Projects 2011 “COPY” + 17 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/325359/sams-creek-bates-masi-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBates Masi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBridgehamptonWoodHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 29, 2013Cite: “Sam’s Creek / Bates Masi Architects” 29 Jan 2013.

Graduates will, therefore, be in a strong position to re-enter the workforce and embark on the next phase of their careers.”Places on the Springboard courses are offered free to those who qualify and the courses are delivered flexibly, allowing jobseekers to retain their benefits and continue their search for employment.The skills taught on the programmes have been specifically selected to match the current job market and concentrate on areas where there is existing and projected growth.“We are delighted to offer programmes in areas where job prospects are solid and, in fact, there are identified skills shortages. LIT has worked intensively with key industry partners to develop these programmes and to ensure that there will be a seamless progression for students from study to work placements and – ultimately – to sustainable jobs,” commented LIT president Dr Maria Hinfelaar.At UL, a total of 159 students recently commenced classes in the nine Springboard courses available at the university, while an additional 40 students are expected to begin courses in January.The courses at UL provide qualifications in areas such as mobile and cloud computing, software development, international entrepreneurship, and management and human resources.Springboard programmes at LIT include biopharmaceuticals, creative multimedia programming, and digital manufacturing and innovation. LIT Development & Public Engagement Manager, Seamus Hoyne, is awarded the SEAI Outstanding Contribution to Sustainable Energy Award.

Prized lineman recruit decommits from USC

first_imgArik Armstead, USC’s top recruit for its 2012 football recruiting class and brother of current USC senior defensive end Armond Armstead, has rescinded his verbal commitment to USC, according to a Scout.com report.The Elk Grove, Calif., native and Pleasant Grove High School star is Scout’s top overall recruit for the class of 2012 listed as an offensive tackle. Rivals.com — another leading scouting website — listed the younger Armstead as the 26th overall recruit as a defensive end — reportedly his prefered position.“It’s a big factor, wherever I go, that I want to play defense,” Armstead told Scout analyst Brandon Huffman. “So schools recruiting me for offense, they can do that, but they’ll be hard to consider.”Armond Armstead did not receive medical clearance from USC’s medical staff after being hospitalized for an undisclosed condition in March and will not play this season, which factored into Arik Armstead’s decision to decommit.“I’ve been disappointed with the way some of the things have been handled with the school and my family over the last six months,” the younger Armstead told Huffman.Huffman reports Armstead will visit Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., this weekend, where the Fighting Irish are set to host USC.According to Huffman’s report, other teams interested in Armstead include Michigan, California and Alabama.last_img read more
