Sketch Architects have recently complete completed a new build flatted development in East Dulwich, London. The scheme involved the demolition of an existing single dwelling of poor quality and the construction of a new property containing three independent flats.Save this picture!© Simon MaxwellThe existing house was awkwardly positioned on the site and incongruous within the street scene being set back and substantially smaller than its neighbours. The client, WNA Properties, presented Sketch Architects with the challenge of creating a new in-fill property that maximised the development potential of the site.Save this picture!© Simon MaxwellSketch Architects wanted to create a contemporary building that blended into the existing street with siting and scale designed to reinstate the terrace. The scale and proportions are very similar to its neighbours, but the contemporary use of traditional brick detailing, a zinc standing seam roof and sleek modern glazing, give it a distinct but familiar appearance.Save this picture!© Simon MaxwellThe brickwork detailing is the perhaps the most striking feature of the external elevation and the use of different brick bonds and patterns have been used to add depth to the façade. Sketch worked closely with the bricklayers on site to realise their desired details and despite some protestation from the tradesman, they excelled themselves with what they achieved. Specialist brick slip products were also used to create brick soffit details around key openings.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Section AAThe zinc standing seam roofing and cladding is used as a nod to the more traditional grey slate tiles that are seen on the neighbouring Victorian buildings. The zinc has also been used to clad the front bay window of the property, again a contemporary representation of the neighbouring brick built and stucco rendered bays.Save this picture!© Simon MaxwellTo the rear, the building is sympathetically stepped in a series of terraces that angle away from the neighbours, the form is designed to maximise the internal envelope whilst minimising the impact on the views and amenity of the neighbours. The project shows that small scale architectural development can be exciting and innovative whilst still creating a harmonious street scene.Save this picture!© Simon MaxwellInternally the layout focuses on creating spaces which are bathed in natural daylight. The use of larger than normal-sized windows in all spaces creates views through the building and increases the connection with the outside. The internal fit out was created on a strict budget and although simple, a crisp, contemporary and high quality finish has been created. The project also achieves good environmental credentials with the building fabric being designed to be highly thermally efficient, airtight and utilising MVHR technology.Save this picture!© Simon MaxwellProject gallerySee allShow lessOur House / TallerdarquitecturaSelected Projects50 Years After the Moon Landing: 15 Architecture Projects for Life in SpaceArticles Share Contractor: United Kingdom Sketch Architects Ltd Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 Year:  Summit Group Building Company Photographs Lead Architects: Blue2 Contractors CopyHouses, Sustainability•United Kingdom ArchDaily Manufacturers: Howdens, Traditional Brick and Stone, MDM Glass Hindmans Road House / Sketch Architects MVHR Installers: Projects Parkerr Contracting & Installation Limited ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924371/hindmans-road-house-sketch-architects Clipboard Waterproofing Specialist: Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSketch ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityOn FacebookUnited KingdomPublished on September 08, 2019Cite: “Hindmans Road House / Sketch Architects” 08 Sep 2019.

The radiative effect of a fir canopy on a snowpack

first_imgModels of snow processes in areas of possible large-scale change need to be site independent and physically based. Here, the accumulation and ablation of the seasonal snow cover beneath a fir canopy has been simulated with a new physically based snow–soil vegetation–atmosphere transfer scheme (Snow-SVAT) called SNOWCAN. The model was formulated by coupling a canopy optical and thermal radiation model to a physically based multilayer snow model. Simple representations of other forest effects were included. These include the reduction of wind speed and hence turbulent transfer beneath the canopy, sublimation of intercepted snow, and deposition of debris on the surface. This paper tests this new modeling approach fully at a fir site within Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed, Idaho. Model parameters were determined at an open site and subsequently applied to the fir site. SNOWCAN was evaluated using measurements of snow depth, subcanopy solar and thermal radiation, and snowpack profiles of temperature, density, and grain size. Simulations showed good agreement with observations (e.g., fir site snow depth was estimated over the season with r2 = 0.96), generally to within measurement error. However, the simulated temperature profiles were less accurate after a melt–freeze event, when the temperature discrepancy resulted from underestimation of the rate of liquid water flow and/or the rate of refreeze. This indicates both that the general modeling approach is applicable and that a still more complete representation of liquid water in the snowpack will be important.last_img read more

Titans honor six officers from Nashville Christmas Day explosion at playoff game

first_imgJanuary 11, 2021 /Sports News – National Titans honor six officers from Nashville Christmas Day explosion at playoff game Written by Beau Lundcenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMetropolitan Nashville Police DepartmentBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — The Tennessee Titans honored the six first responders responsible for safely evacuating residents in downtown Nashville, Tennessee prior to the Christmas Day bombing.Officers Brenna Hosey, Tyler Luellen, Michael Sipos, Amanda Topping, James Wells and Sergeant Timothy Miller were in attendance at Sunday’s NFL playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens and plunged the Titans Sword of Honor to mark the countdown to kickoff and were recognized as the game’s honorary 12th Titans, according to the Tennessee Titans.“While we can never thank these officers enough for their heroic acts, it is an absolute privilege to have the opportunity to honor them at the game on Sunday,” said Titans president and CEO Burke Nihill. “We are grateful for their service to our community and appreciate that we’ll have them on site to support the team.”Nashville police officers were called to downtown Nashville early on Christmas morning when they discovered an RV playing a recording saying a potential bomb would detonate within 15 minutes.The officers immediately began working to evacuate nearby buildings when the RV exploded at approximately 6:30 a.m, blowing out windows of nearby buildings and causing extensive and structural damage to dozens of buildings in the surrounding area.Authorities found human remains among the debris of the explosion and investigators eventually determined that they belonged to the RV owner who was later identified as 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner of Antioch, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville.Eight people were injured in the blast. Warner was the only person to die in the blast.The Nashville police officers were hailed as heroes at a press conference a couple of days later.“Immediately, they didn’t think about their own lives. They didn’t think about themselves. They thought about the citizens of Nashville and protecting them, and they went about knocking on doors,” Chief John Drake said, as he introduced five of the six officers. “Had they not made those efforts, we’d be talking about the tragedy of people and lives lost.”On Sunday, however, the officers were lauded on the national stage.“To be able to stand at the stadium with [my fellow officers] and receive this honor together is amazing,” said Officer Wells. “[Our response on Christmas Day] was a total team effort. It was not what one individual did or said, it was about all of us coming together to protect our community, and keep our community safe and keep each other safe.”The Titans, the fourth seed in the AFC, went on to lose Sunday’s game to the fifth seeded Ravens, 20-13. Baltimore now advances to the divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
