The addition and alteration to this existing terraced house converts the 3,500 Sq ft space into a loft by the introduction of a large triple storey void that connects the second and third floor to an attic space with existing wood rafters. The house completely opens up to the exterior through the use of bi-folding full height metal screens on both floors of the front and back facades. Without providing any glazing behind the metal screens and with the use of movable interior partitions, the large openings on both facades promote a consistent wind flow through all the interior spaces, while the screens filter natural light into the house. The ‘open’ concept throughout the house is juxtaposed by a full ‘screening’ idea that shuts the house into an enclosed box.Save this picture!© Darren SohThe ground level of the house is converted into a working studio with a separate entry, shielded behind a concrete wall. 4 meter tall perforated cement block walls protect the open spaces in the front and the back of the house, creating almost an exterior ‘room’ in the front and back yards. Loose gravel cover the front yard and 50mm thick black granite slabs are used as pavers leading to the entries from the exterior gate.Save this picture!Floor PlanAn additional balcony which faces the back garden is newly created on the 3rd level by cutting away the existing slab which previously stretched to the upper stair landing. A thick existing beam running the span of the new stair void is revealed after cutting back the slab, emphasizing the structural support beneath the new balcony. This in-between balcony space screens the open-air stair core and triple height void from the exterior.Save this picture!© Darren SohProject gallerySee allShow lessVIDEO: Inside A Data Center, The Architecture Of The CloudVideosRenovation of an Industrial Building into a Single Family House / Guim Costa Calsami…Selected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/505677/the-screened-house-brewin-design-office Clipboard The Screened House / Brewin Design Office CopyAbout this officeBrewin Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSingaporePublished on May 15, 2014Cite: “The Screened House / Brewin Design Office” 15 May 2014.

Harvard helping the helpers

first_imgThis fall, Harvard University’s Teaching and Learning Partnerships (TLP) team will begin a new collaboration with the Boston Public Library (BPL).The TLP team will train more than 50 Boston high school students to become effective mentors for the BPL’s Homework Help program. The team will use an approach developed by Harvard University’s SmartTALK program. SmartTALK offers a structured way to support children’s learning, focusing on methods for effective use of homework time and on proven ways to transition children to game-related learning following the completion of their homework.Since 2000, the BPL has offered free, drop-in homework help to Boston youth, providing a much-needed academic service to students in kindergarten through eighth grade, as well as employment opportunities for Boston teens.This school year, 62 high-achieving teens from diverse backgrounds and neighborhoods are serving as Homework Help mentors in the 24 library branches. Among them will be the 50 teens who are also part of the TLP training.For some, working as a mentor is the result of their own positive experience as a child — when they received homework assistance in the BPL.“I grew up going to the Honan-Allston Library and would often get homework help there,” said 16-year-old mentor José Mendoza, who attends Mary Lyon Pilot High School in Brighton. “I have two younger sisters, in the first and third grade, and I help them from time to time with their work. One of my friends worked at BPL in the summer, and when she told me about it [Homework Help], I figured it could be fun. I also was a mentee myself at the Harvard-Allston Education Portal in the first year of its mentoring program.”Since its launch in 2008, Harvard’s SmartTALK has worked to address a key concern of many after-school programs: having staff/volunteers who are adequately prepared and trained to help children of all ages develop strong academic skills outside of school hours. The combination of homework assistance and mentorship in the BPL’s Homework Help program aligns with the goals of SmartTALK, making it a natural collaboration.“Besides the critical homework help, SmartTALK also realizes that success in school is about so much more than just finishing homework,” said Joan Matsalia, associate director of Teaching and Learning Partnerships at Harvard University. “It also works to strengthen a student’s relationship with the teachers and mentors. It helps them become more organized, develop better and stronger study skills, become more effective problem-solvers, and [it] teaches them how to work more effectively in groups.”“We couldn’t be happier with the progress of this program and are incredibly excited about this exciting new venture with the Boston Public Library,” Matsalia added.“The Boston Public Library is proud to have Harvard onboard as a partner in our Homework Help program,” said Amanda Bressler, youth outreach librarian for the BPL and manager of the Homework Help program. “SmartTALK training will give our mentors the skills and added confidence to do their job well, and, in turn, it will benefit those children who rely on Homework Help as a source of academic support. I look forward to seeing where this collaborative effort takes us.”During the current academic school year, the TLP team will offer three separate training sessions to more than 60 Boston high school students. The first session, offered in late October, focused on teaching students how to ask good questions and on the most effective ways to problem solve. The winter session will focus on behavior management, and on understanding and maximizing group culture. Finally, the spring session will focus on the importance of — and how to — keep learning fun as the homework mentors engage students and optimize learning through games.For more information about the Boston Public Library’s Homework Help program, including a complete schedule, please visit its website.last_img read more

Men’s Basketball: Reuvers, Davison not enough to secure victory in heartbreaking season opener

first_imgIn their first game of the season, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team lost in heartbreaking fashion in overtime to the No. 20 St. Mary’s College Gaels on Tuesday.No one knew what to expect from this year’s Wisconsin Badger squad. Many had completely counted them out after losing one of the best players to ever put on the cardinal and white. The team failed to earn even a single AP Top 25 vote.Men’s Basketball: Badgers absent from AP top 25 rankingsDisappointingly, the 2019-2020 Wisconsin men’s basketball team is not ranked amongst the top 25 teams in the country in the Read…But against a St. Mary’s team boasting one of the best point guards in the country, Greg Gard and the Badgers proved they have the ability to compete in 2020. A few mental errors down the stretch cost UW the game, but good showings from Nate Reuvers, Brad Davison and D’mitrik Trice should have fans ecstatic for the rest of the season.Wisconsin started the game off able to do just about anything they wanted. A few jumpers from Davison and Aleem Ford, along with a few post ups for Reuvers got them off to a strong start. With a little over seven minutes left in the first half, the Badgers had built up an eight point lead.But a St. Mary’s run was bound to come, and come it did. Within just two minutes, the lead was completely eliminated and Jordan Ford started to lock in. He went on a 10–1 run by himself and put Brad Davison in a spin-cycle in the process, driving the Gaels to a six-point advantage at the break.Reuvers looked like the new face of the program all night. He came out of the locker room rolling and led the team in total scoring with 22 points during the contest. He also added four blocks on the night, which shouldn’t surprise anyone after averaging 1.8 per game last year.Men’s Basketball: Diving deep into Badgers’ prospects for 2019-2020Ethan Happ has been the unquestioned leader of the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team over the past three seasons. Read…He really kept Wisconsin in the game throughout the second half, whether it was down low or on the perimeter. After a D’mitrik Trice three brought them to within six with just under eight minutes left in the game, Reuvers scored five straight to make it just one.A quick back-and-forth between Davison and Jordan Ford made it 52–52, and a jumper from Matthias Tass put St. Mary’s up two with 1:51 left. A missed three from Trice gave the Gaels a chance to seal it, but they couldn’t capitalize, and it led to an Aleem Ford drive to tie it back up.That’s where things got tense. Reuvers blocked Ford, but St. Mary’s got the board and another crack at the win. With a low shot clock, Malik Fitts fired one up and out of bounds, giving the Badgers 13 seconds to find a winner.They got the shot they wanted, but Aleem Ford pushed it too far and airballed. The Badgers headed into a dramatic overtime period in their season opener.The first few minutes was a stalemate before ultimately winding down to a 63–60 Badger advantage with two minutes to go. After a pair of Fitts free throws, a costly Kobe King turnover put the ball in Fitts’s hands again, who took it inside for a one-point lead.Gard called timeout, and Wisconsin worked it around, ultimately settling for a Nate Reuvers jumper that wouldn’t fall. Then came the mental mistakes. Down one, with 38 seconds left, Gard decided to trust his defense.Basketball: A day in the life of a UW basketball hopefulThree minutes. That’s essentially what about 50 guys went through hell and back for last Wednesday night when they flooded Read…They held, forcing the Gaels to throw one up as the shot clock expired but somehow, inexplicably failed to secure the rebound. That’s when Wisconsin finally got to foul. They even got lucky when Kyle Bowen missed one of two from the line.Unfortunately, a last-ditch half court heave from Aleem Ford was left short and the Badgers dropped their first of the season.Despite the sour ending, it was a pretty solid start for a team still searching for an identity. Reuvers finished with 22 and Davison had 16 points of his own. This kind of output is exactly what this team will need going forward.Next up, Eastern Illinois comes to the Kohl Center for the home opener this Friday at 8 p.m.last_img read more
