Much of the original integrity of this Grade II listed Georgian house had been lost through a series of clumsy interventions. The house was poorly planned – with no real central living space or easy flow from one part to another.We did not want to simply add on more living space but rather improve the upper and lower ground floors of the house in a way that worked with the existing building, both internally and externally. It was clear that the new part of the building would relate to the garden on a more domestic scale if its height were lower.Save this picture!© Paul RafteryA bold new plan was devised. Using the pure geometry of a ‘cube’, we created a new large central living space, giving the house a new heart. Smaller rooms opening off this space match the rhythms of family life: there’s a warm and welcoming place to come together in but also spaces to quietly retreat to.Clever arrangement of the kitchen, pantry, utility room and cloakroom makes for a smoothly and efficiently run home.Save this picture!SectionA steel and timber structure forms the ‘cube’. The warmth and comfort that the client was looking for was achieved through a simple palette of waxed birch ply and oak to line the stairs, floors, walls and ceiling. We worked closely with craftsmen to ensure an immaculate finish. The birch ceiling is washed with light from a continuous ribbon of clerestory windows.Spaces open into each other – and out into the garden. The delight of a London garden is enjoyed from carefully organised windows and also from an upper outdoor terrace.Save this picture!© Paul RafteryExtensions to similar houses close by had aimed for a contrast to the existing style. We took a different approach and started with what was already there. We chose materials that were the same or similar to the original house: timber; glass; neutral-coloured fenestration; and off-white coloured rendered masonry panels.Save this picture!Floor PlanWith the massing and external materials of the new extension we sought to complement the existing building. Minimal changes were made to the front elevation – so nothing of its heritage character is lost.We also considered the neighbours and improved their outlook over the house. The view is now of foliage and a sedum roof rather than a shed roof and lean-to slate roof. Save this picture!© Paul RafteryProject gallerySee allShow lessSix ‘Cathedrals of Culture’ Tell Their Stories in New 3D FilmVideosLatest New Yorker Cover Addresses Ferguson Rift With Saarinen’s Iconic ArchArchitecture News Share Cape Construction Area:  100 m² Area:  100 m² Photographs Services Engineer: Main Contractor: Architects: Cullinan Studio Area Area of this architecture project Landscape Architect: CopyAbout this officeCullinan StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on November 29, 2014Cite: “House in Hampstead / Cullinan Studio” 29 Nov 2014.

Opinion: Truancy and Dollars

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News COVER: Right Opinion: Truancy and Dollars By CAMERON TURNER Published on Friday, October 4, 2013 | 5:35 pm faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. I’ve never understood this notion of state and federal dollars being jeopardized when public schools face challenges in performance. The California Attorney General’s recent report on the statewide truancy crisis raised this issue yet again. According to the report, 25% of California kids are truant (absent or tardy half-an-hour or more without an excuse at least three times during the school year) every year. Because education money is linked to average daily attendance (ADA), school districts up and down the state lost $1.4 billion in the 2010-2011 school year.Truancy is a critical problem. It is linked to scholastic achievement, drop out rates, and crime. But I’m at a loss to understand how reducing school funding (which is already stretched thin) will improve the situation.Eric Sahakian, Pasadena’s director of child welfare, attendance and safety traced the Pasadena’s 49% rise in truancy to financial pressures put on families by the recession. Sahakian also cited “dramatic budget cuts” in staff tasked with reducing truancy. Withholding state money from local schools does nothing to address these complicated matters. Indeed, if budget cuts contribute to the problem, then responding with funding reductions seems counterintuitive.The Attorney General’s truancy report applauds the success of initiatives like PUSD’s Student Recovery Day, when volunteers visited the homes of truant students. Such programs enable school officials to understand the challenges faced by the struggling families Mr. Sahakian mentioned. Understanding those challenges could be invaluable in identifying the factors that make it difficult for some students to be in class, on time, every day.Thanks for listening.

Alliance helps manufacturing jobless

first_imgStaff made redundant at the Jacobs plant closure in Sheffield are beinghelped into new work by a mutual assistance scheme set up by the EngineeringEmployers’ Federation. The EEF’s Sheffield Association is sending details of redundant staff to thealliance members. Association director Gordon Scott said: “In this way we get straight tothe people needing both management and shopfloor workers. We don’t becomeinvolved in the actual recruitment – our job is to alert member companies tothe availability of well-trained people with experience in the industry.” Scott said the association has had a lot of interest from firms sincedistributing a list of available staff. “Although we haven’t placed people with everyone who has contacted us,we have been able to help find new jobs for hourly operatives and salariedstaff. Several senior managers are also in line for new jobs,” said Scott.He added: “We have had a difficult time since 1999, losing about 8 percent of our industry’s workforce locally. But there are engineering sectorswhich are picking up well and they inevitably find that skills shortages aredeveloping.” Alliance helps manufacturing joblessOn 5 Mar 2002 in Manufacturing, Personnel Today Features list 2021 – submitting content to Personnel TodayOn this page you will find details of how to submit content to Personnel Today.

5 ways to market to eligible audiences only

first_imgMarketing based on credit union field of membership can be challenging. Understanding the right platforms to use and their limitations on financial institutions can hinder marketing to your eligible audiences. There are a few different techniques you can explore when targeting eligible audiences. Credit unions’ unique field of membership regulations do not jibe with traditional marketing methods, even with geographic targeting.Advertising on social media platforms such as Facebook and Linkedin have their own set of advertising rules for financial institutions. They can be confusing and hard to follow which makes it difficult to specifically target only your eligible audiences without spending marketing dollars on nonqualified leads. Google Adwords is the same way and a lot of it has to do with discriminatory practices.Here are 5 strategies I recommend for the highest ROI on your ad spend.1) Direct mail campaigns- With the right data you can create a whole marketing campaign based on specific triggers around people looking for a home or car – responsive and predictive. Many companies buy user data that allow you to learn where people live, work, worship and even who may qualify as a family member. By selecting the right triggers and focusing on higher converting groups – people who work in your defined community – you can serve direct mail campaigns only to those who are eligible to join without wasting a dime. You can even narrow it down to individual census tracts. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more
