There was a 10 per cent fall in revenue at the company, whose brands include Ann Harvey, Eastex and Dash but it reported an adjusted pre-tax profit figure on continuing operations of £950,000, up from £900,000 last year for the 26 weeks ended 31 July. After £9m in exceptional costs in 2009 following the collapse of its Bay Trading subsidiary, Alexon has embarked on a major recovery plan. A large part of this includes a £10m reshaping of its property profile, funded by the sale of stores earlier in the year.

first_img Running the show: Callum Sheedy for Bristol Bears (Getty Images) Join the stand-off on a metaphorical tour via Cardiff, Chew Valley and Hawaii This article originally appeared in the September 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img CALLUM SHEEDY has had a barnstorming season, navigating Bristol Bears through their journey to the Gallagher Premiership play-offs and making the fly-half jersey his own. And now he’s been called up to the Wales squad! The Cardiff native tells us about his life…“AT 16 or 17 years old I was a pathetic goalkicker. I was terrible. I didn’t even kick for our school (Millfield) – Tom Whiteley, the Saracens scrum-half, used to kick for us. I just loved running the ball.“But then moving into a professional environment, you won’t survive as a ten if you can’t kick. So I spent so many hours with Mark Tainton, who was our kicking coach at the time.“Kicking is about what feels natural. I didn’t want to model my kick on Jonny Wilkinson or Johnny Sexton or Dan Carter. I played a lot of football growing up, so I kicked the ball like a football. I needed a few tweaks with my approach to the ball, my tempo into the ball. And it’s about not overthinking everything because I’m quite a deep thinker.“I wasn’t like Lionel Messi! I was a central midfielder in football and I enjoyed the defensive side. I liked getting stuck in but I was pretty basic. I’d make a ten-metre pass, max, just play the easy ball all the time. But I liked working hard and I liked going box to box.Can he kick it: Sheedy warms up (Getty Images)“I’m a big Leeds United fan. I love it. I’ve had a lot of stick from friends over the years as they’ve been in the Championship and then League One – I think the worse they became, the more I loved them. What (coach) Marcelo Bielsa has done is amazing. The closer we got to the Premier League, the more my nerves jangled (Leeds are back in the top flight for the first time since 2004).“On deep thinking, you have your goalkicking focus and your rugby focus. A big thing I’ve learnt is just because you’re having an off-day off the tee doesn’t mean you then become poor in open play and vice versa.“It’s hard because I could have the best day of my life, be Man of the Match and get ten out of ten kicks, get two tries, but still come off the pitch and think about two missed tackles. I’m very much a perfectionist and that’s not always a good thing.“Pat Lam has helped massively. He makes it all very clear. His post-match and pre-match analysis is so clear and precise that it’s music to my ears. You can ask him anything to clear your mind and he’ll give you the most honest answer. That’s what we want.“The new players coming in have been brilliant. If you came into our camp now, I don’t think you’d be able to tell who is new and who has been there for years. Take Mitch Eadie: I played with him four or five years ago and he was our best player every week, unbelievable. Having someone like him – a true Bristolian – has already offered massive value. “I’m sure you’ll see Semi Radradra. Think of the X-factor him and Charles Piutau can pull off. And Kyle Sinckler has come in and straightaway you can tell that he’s working at a world-class level.Breaking free: Against Bath (Getty Images)“It’s the little talks on the pitch – he’s a tighthead prop, but it’s the detail and knowledge that he has on the game. It reminds me of John Afoa. They could literally fit in at fly-half and run the game.“I was tapping John up in the gym about the Hawaiian pro team he co-owns. In the off-season I wouldn’t mind going out there for a few weeks! I said he’s like the Hawaiian Steve Lansdown now.“You can train all you want but getting minutes on the pitch is invaluable. Going to play for Jersey, Cinderford, Clifton or Dings was priceless for me. Dan Carter and Ardie Savea playing amateur rugby in New Zealand recently is extreme but it’s brilliant to go do it. I think there has to be a link between Premiership clubs and Championship or National One clubs.“I’ll actually be coaching Chew Valley when their season restarts. There are some really good players out there. Towards the end of lockdown I was doing my exercise at the club. My girlfriend lives in Chew Valley and her brother plays for the club.“I ended up speaking to the director of rugby there. There was an opportunity to help out with the backs. I felt like it might be the right time to go into coaching. I’ve done my Level Two badges and I love rugby. I’m a bit of a nause. I’m really excited.“I want to be the best player in the world. If you don’t want that you’re in the wrong spot. But there’s constant competition in Bristol. Of course I want to be an international, to go to World Cups, but my biggest focus is being the Bristol ten for the long-term future.”last_img read more

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAn image gallery of scenes from the “Called to Be…” revival is here.[Episcopal News Service – Fresno, California] The recent three-day revival in the Diocese of San Joaquin was an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual journey by Episcopalians there to discern what God is calling them to be.The journey has brought Central Valley Episcopalians to the point where they are ready to share their healed selves with their neighbors.“We have spent nearly 10 years needing to focus on our own rebirth. We are ready to look outside and to really live into this revival of the Jesus Movement,” the Rev. Nancy Key told Episcopal News Service as the gathering began. “We needed to heal, and then, once healed, we needed not to stay there. We needed to go out into the world.”For the Rev. Suzy Ward, the first woman ordained in the diocese, “life has been blooming but this event really acknowledges the fact that things have turned a corner. Things are being made new.”The “Called to Be…” celebration spanned the length of the diocese on the eastern side of central California, with stops in Stockton, Fresno and Bakersfield. The revival included emotional stories of fear and frustration from immigrants, a Stations of the Cross-like neighborhood prayer walk, liturgical pomp and tradition followed by a food-truck dinner, and Episcopalians filling yellow backpacks with goods for people living on the streets. It included touchstones from the past – an old quilt and an old bishop’s ring – as well as interfaith visitors and powerful testimony to the rebirth of the diocese.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry joins in the Nov. 18 neighborhood prayer walk around the Fresno, California, block that forms the campus of St. James Episcopal Cathedral. He is flanked by two of his canons, the Rev. Michael Hunn and the Rev. Stephanie Spellers. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAt every turn, people stopped to reflect on the nearly 10 years since then-Bishop John-David Schofield and a majority of Episcopalians attending a Dec. 8, 2007 diocesan convention voted to disaffiliate with the Episcopal Church. Schofield was at odds with the church over the ordination of women and gay clergy and issues of biblical authority. Those who left call themselves Anglicans, although the Anglican Communion does not officially recognize their organizations.The intervening years were at first marked by the introspection Key described, a turn inward to take stock of what and who was left in the diocese. Key, now a deacon, was a layperson in 2008 when she and others helped those who remained Episcopalian pick up the pieces and reorganize the diocese.Returning to church buildings but looking beyond their wallsThe rebuilding years also took Episcopalians to court to recover the property of the diocese and the Episcopal Church. They persevered and succeeded. All but one of the property suits have ended. With that success has come discernment about the future shape of the diocese. The diocese has decided it will try to sell 25 properties, planning to invest the proceeds in future ministry. About 21 congregations are viable, but many, if not most, are struggling financially. There are few paid full-time clergy. They work with retired clergy and clergy who work full-time but earn part-time salaries.As church properties came back to the diocese, the very small diocesan staff joined with elected diocesan leaders to take inventories, assess deferred maintenance and prioritize needed repairs.In some cases, they arranged for Anglicans to stay in the buildings until they could make other arrangements, according to Cindy Smith, the outgoing Standing Committee president. Smith told ENS that the diocese, in some cases, allowed the Anglicans to take memorial donations with them when they left.Taking possession of the recovered property required both administrative and emotional work, she said.Those assessments and calculations about keeping or selling a church building, based on the viability of congregations, led to a deeper discernment, according to another Standing Committee member.“Of course, we’re rebuilding. We need the infrastructure and all that, but we’re not just rebuilding the things one needs to run an office,” Erin Rausch, a young woman who became active in the Episcopal Church of St. Anne in Stockton after the departures. “We have an opportunity to call into question who we want to be as a community of faith. That’s a challenge and a gift.”Episcopalians, including soon-to-be-Bishop Diocesan David Rice, gather in the courtyard outside St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Fresno, California, on Nov. 18. This second day of the Diocese of San Joaquin’s three-day revival marked a historic step: Rice was seated in the newly returned cathedral. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThat discernment has not always easy, said Bishop David Rice, who was invested Nov. 18 as the diocese’s fourth bishop diocesan. There is always the temptation to keep doing what had been done and to resuscitate rather than be resurrected, he said.“We’re going to travel light for as long as I am here,” he said in an interview in the raucous parish hall of St Paul’s in Bakersfield on Nov. 19. “That is not anti-building or anti-growth – [it is] realizing that keeping this minimal and simple is true to how we have emerged over the last nine years.”Rice’s own path to this revival is an example of that minimalism. The diocese elected him in March 2014 as its fourth bishop provisional. Then in March of this year, delegates to a special convention overwhelmingly voted to elect him as their diocesan bishop. Rice was the only nominee in a somewhat unusual election. It marked the first time in recent memory that a bishop moved from provisional to diocesan. Moreover, the election came without the typical bishop search involving multiple nominees and what diocesan officials estimated would have cost upwards of $50,000.Remembering the past but not being deterred by it was a theme of the weekend. Rausch suggested that the “Called to Be…” revival “is an opportunity to not put this behind us but to carry it with us into whatever we do next.” Ward agreed, saying San Joaquin Episcopalians don’t want to relive the past but rather “just want to learn from it.”The learning is hard, sometimes. “All those years of isolationism” from ecumenical partners, adjoining dioceses, and the wider Episcopal Church, as well as from the local contexts, couldn’t be overcome overnight, Rice said. That work is ongoing, he added, and reaching out to Central Valley residents in new ways is a “challenge for a lot of people.”An Episcopalian leans back and laughs while Presiding Bishop Michael Curry makes a point Nov. 17 during the kickoff event for the Diocese of San Joaquin’s three-day “Called to Be… ” revival. The event took place on the University of the Pacific campus in Stockton, California. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceHowever, folks are getting there. The Rev. Lyn Morlan, standing in a courtyard of Lincoln Elementary School, across the street from St. Anne’s in Stockton where she is the rector, explained how her parishioners now tutor students at the school, which receives federal aid because of the high number of low-income students. She recalled that they “stepped out in faith” and donated the proceeds of a recent fundraiser to the program. That money is usually “the budget balancer” fund, she said.St. Anne’s Episcopalians are seeing that “God isn’t confined in the that little red church,” she said, pointing back toward the church. “God’s out here.”Episcopalians in Visalia have been back in their building just shy of four months. Recovering St. Paul’s property has been a challenge and a gift, said Ward, St. Paul’s priest-in-charge. Those who remained Episcopalians and those who joined the church after the departures of 2008 had been renting a small house and worshipping in a synagogue. St. Paul’s campus takes up just more than half a city block. The congregation worried about how its return to that large space will change them.St Paul’s location and size give the congregation visibility, Ward explained. More importantly, it is an asset that Visalia Episcopalians want offer to the community as part of the hospitality they value. The parish hall has hosted community meetings and trainings for social service organizations. It will soon become an overflow night shelter for the local Rescue Mission’s homeless ministry.“We’re trying to find our way. That’s a part of the revival: how do we revive this place in a way that is meaningful for the community in a way that it might not have been used before,” Ward said.Two chalice bearers and San Joaquin Bishop David Rice administer communion after Rice was invested as the bishop diocesan and seated in St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Fresno, California. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe Rev. Nick Lorenzetti is a former Roman Catholic priest who retired to the Modesto area from Philadelphia but found no Roman Catholic parishes that would welcome him and his husband. The couple began attending St. Paul’s Episcopal Church there. When the Rev. Kathleen West fell ill, then-Bishop Provisional Chester Talton asked Lorenzetti to help out with preaching and home visits. Four years ago, Talton received Lorenzetti’s orders and made him an Episcopal priest; he is now priest-in-charge in Modesto.Lorenzetti said the San Joaquin model of community engagement is something he longed for in his previous parish-priest days. Back then, the priest stayed in the office and prayed that people would come, he said. In this diocese, “it isn’t just about how many people are sitting there on Sunday; it’s about whether the gospel is being lived and whether we’re making a difference in the communities in which we live.” None of that work, he added, can be done without clergy developing and enriching lay ministry.Whether it is helping to form Unify Stanislaus (County) so that Muslims, Jews, Christians (including non-English-speakers) and Buddhists can quickly respond to immigrants in need of help, working in homeless ministries, gathering produce for area feeding programs, or counseling women suffering from abuse, “we’re doing church in all those situations,” Lorenzetti said.The Helping Urban Bicyclists ministry, run out of a Stockton storefront by Deacon Stephen Bentley, shown here working on a bike, is an example of the new models of being church in the community with which the Diocese of San Joaquin is experimenting. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceTom Hampson, another person who retired to the Modesto area and is now in the diaconate process, agreed. “We’re reinventing what church is going to look like,” he said, sitting in the Helping Urban Bicyclists (HUB) ministry’s storefront shop in downtown Stockton.As street people came in to ask for a bike, get their bikes repaired or join in some conversation, Hampson, who worked for Church World Service for 30-some years, observed, “This is what church looks like.” Many weeks the Rev. Stephen Bentley and his crew at the HUB minister to more people than attend worship at St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church down the street.Bentley, a deacon who developed and runs the HUB, added that helping people see church in new ways is part of the HUB’s goal. The idea of “having people realize that the church is much more vital than four walls and an altar – it’s how we engage with people, it’s how we engage with the community, it’s how we minister to them – is new, and not just for Episcopalians.“Everyone that comes by here wants to know what we’re all about and why are you guys so open,” said Bentley, who is also a cartoonist who draws the comic strip Herb and Jamaal. Those people also ask, “How come you don’t think like the rest of them? Why are you guys so different? What are you guys doing?”Much work remains to be done in the conservative Central Valley, Smith said, “to share an inclusive message and to be that inclusive church.”The HUB is not to be confused with three other hubs in the diocese. The northern, central and southern deaneries each have what are being called “ministry hubs.” They are meant to help the diocese’s slim resources go farther by sharing expertise, equipment, personnel and ideas. Congregations are encouraged to do the same. The churches in Visalia, Tulare and Hanford, for instance, share a treasurer.San Joaquin is a far-flung diocese that stretches from the agriculturally rich Central Valley floor to the high desert and to the mountains. Driving such vast distances, especially in the winter in the mountains, can be treacherous. Governance and training are happening in virtual, video meeting rooms.“This is an incubator, a holy laboratory, this is a great and wonderful experiment,” Rice said, noting, “there is no risk aversion in this diocese.”Praise from the church, and a check from the diocese“You may well have shown us the future hope of the Episcopal Church, and its witness in this world,” Curry told San Joaquin Episcopalians during the Nov. 18 service at St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Fresno. “You have been a witness for Jesus by standing up for love … and you have shown the whole Episcopal Church that we can do it. We can witness to justice. We can witness to compassion. We can witness to goodness. We can witness to kindness. We can witness to Jesus.”“Thank you, San Joaquin,” he shouted to thunderous applause.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, reminded the congregation at the service that a decade ago, women and LGBTQI people in the valley were not fully welcome in the life of the Episcopal Church.“You are called by God to go the margins and to serve in places that we couldn’t possibly have imagined a decade ago,” she said, noting Episcopalians’ ministry with homeless people, victims of human trafficking, and people in prison. “In your journey, you have found strength not just for yourselves, but for the people of God across the San Joaquin Valley. Here, in this place that once turned away so many of God’s people, you are following Jesus into new life.”“You show the rest of us in the Episcopal Church what it truly means to believe that resurrection follows death.”The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president, and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry hold up a $1 million check presented to them Nov. 18 during the investiture and seating of Bishop David Rice. The check comes as part of a loan-forgiveness arrangement agreed to by the church’s Executive Council. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe Fresno service included the passing of a large check, both in amount and size. That check, for $1 million, represented the conclusion of years of support and some months of negotiations.The church’s Executive Council agreed last month to forgive $6.8 million in loans to San Joaquin, along with the accrued interest. In return, the diocese promised to pay the Episcopal Church $1 million; fund the cost of remaining property litigation along with all costs of repair, lease termination and maintenance of recovered properties, including the costs of selling any of them; and fully pay the costs of having a bishop. The diocese also agreed to begin paying its full assessment to the churchwide budget in 2019.Council agreed to the deal because it was, in the words of one member, a “significant investment in this diocese.”“They definitely made an investment in us,” Smith told ENS. The loan-forgiveness deal means “sustainability long-term, being able to not be completely focused on surviving but thinking about how we thrive.”Smith echoed Rice in saying that if San Joaquin is the testing ground for new ways of being church, then she hoped “our experiences and our experiments can be used by the rest of the church. That would be a wonderful thing and a wonderful way to pay back the support and generosity that people have given us.”Rice said during the Fresno service that the check for “$1 million to the Jesus Movement” represented “resurrection and a new lease on life for the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin” and a way of “offering our own gratitude, expressing our own generosity.”The shape of the revivalOn Nov. 17, the revival began with Episcopalians, friends, faith partners and civic leaders gathering at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, to hear people’s stories about immigration and DACA (the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). A Latina high school student, two Episcopal priests (one Latina and one Nigerian) and a doctor who is Muslim spoke. Each round of testimony included prayer and singing and ended with remarks by Presiding Bishop Curry.The next day at St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Fresno, ministry leaders and partners went on a “neighborhood prayer walk” to highlight how ministry in the diocese is increasingly inclusive, ecumenical and interfaith. The walk ended at the church doors and led into the Eucharist during which Rice was formally installed as bishop of the diocese and seated in the cathedral. Curry preached and a food-truck dinner followed the service.Bishop Bavi Edna “Nedi” Rivera, second from left, presents Bishop David Rice and his wife Tracy with a quilt made many years ago by Diocese of San Joaquin Episcopalians for her parents, San Joaquin Bishop Victor and Barbara Rivera. Rivera also gave Rice her father’s episcopal ring. Victor Rivera was San Joaquin’s second bishop diocesan after two missionary bishops. He served from 1968 to 1989. Rice is the diocese’s fourth bishop diocesan. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceDuring the service, Bishop Bavi Edna “Nedi” Rivera, whose father Victor was San Joaquin’s second bishop diocesan, gave Rice her father’s episcopal ring. She and one of her sisters also returned to the diocese a present Episcopalians had given her father and mother, Barbara, when his 31-year episcopate ended in 1989. It was a quilt with panels from every congregation.Also during the service, Jennings presented the House of Deputies medal to the diocese. She established the medal in 2012 to award to laypeople and clergy for distinguished service to the House of Deputies and the Episcopal Church. This is the first time Jennings has awarded the medal to a diocese or group of people.Curry preached and presided on Nov. 19 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Bakersfield on the southern end of the diocese. Following worship and brunch, participants took the “1000 Yellow Bags Challenge,” filling backpacks with toiletries, socks and other necessities for the homeless.At the end of the Fresno service, Rice sent out the congregation with a gentle admonition that could almost be the unofficial diocesan motto. As he began his blessing, he said, “Take this blessing. Embrace it. Use it and make sure it’s alive.”An aggregation of social media posts during the revival is here.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is interim managing editor of the Episcopal News Service.Editor’s note: In a previous version of this story, the lead caption mistakenly located St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Bakersfield, California, instead of Fresno, and mistakenly named the founder of the Helping Urban Bicyclists ministry as the Rev.

As our second commission for an apartment building in Argentina [located also on Jujuy street] the project presented the possibility of rethinking urban housing. The project consists of thirteen small, shared-floor units and a Duplex organized in a cross-ventilated layout. The Ground level provides parking for 10 vehicles, and a common terrace on the 8th floor outdoor leisure spaces.Save this picture!SectionOccupying a corner lot, the new development aims to revitalize Rosario’s traditional neighborhood of “Pichincha”. Adjacent to both the historic downtown and the Parana Riverfront, it enjoys generous street sizes, large amounts of vegetation and a low urban density of cultural heritage, making it the ideal environment for young families and students. As a result, the demand for new mid-rise interventions stands at an all-time high.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoJujuy Redux proposes a subtle delineated mass, operating both at the scale of the entire volume and the scale of each apartment. This flexible duality overcomes issues that exist with many mid-rise housing typologies, such as the occurrence of fixed, scalar transformations that play either with the envelope as detached from the units, or with the units alone.A transition from mass to volume, from volume to surface, induces a visual and physical distortion at the pedestrian level. More importantly, it enables the weighty appearance of the building to sinuously dematerialize towards the corner, allowing the social space par excellence of each apartment to visually connect with the pedestrian activity in the street below.  Shifts on-demand: The BalconiesSave this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoProblematically, Balconies are the inevitable cultural element in mid-rise residential buildings of South America. Typologically, balconies have become the playground for formalism, often neglecting issues of spatial integration into an overall scheme, and worse, dissociating them from social issues and human inhabitation. By contrast, the formal, spatial and material treatment of the balconies of Jujuy Redux is one of the most significant, innovative and socially performative aspects of the project.  Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoWe recognize the open cultural conditions associated with balconies in housing buildings that are not yet coded with an architectural typology. Jujuy Redux’ balcony design takes inspiration from the polygonal bay window as well as from the horizontal balcony. While traditional bay windows perform strictly as interior spaces, Jujuy Redux balconies perform directionally as they open up towards the corner, allowing for both exposed spaces with oblique vistas as well as more intimate ones, sheltered from the weather and direct views from the street. Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoWhile the project is built almost entirely of cast-in-place concrete, the interior space of the balconies is clad with grey venetian tile. This arrangement produces a sense of contrast between the outer white concrete skin and the inner walls of the balcony, while also accentuating a sense of spatial enclosure within the outdoor living space of each apartment, enhancing its use as each inhabitant negotiates the threshold between private and public space.Save this picture!Details 4Spatially ambivalent and nuanced, Jujuy Redux’s balconies are conceived as highly articulated pieces of scalar diversity that incorporate apertures, railing, direct and indirect LED lighting as well as material changes. A built-in bench provides a place for leisure activities and small gatherings, while allowing inhabitants to tailor its use according to their individual needs.Down on the Ground: Opening the CornerSave this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoAt ground level, concrete cross braces receive the diagonal deviations produced by the balconies, creating a double-height urban corner free of columns. This cantilevered corner gives way to an inconspicuous building entrance located at Jujuy Street, followed by a sequence of spaces: a gated porch and main hall linked by a two-storey glazed doorway, and the elevator lobby, all clad in polished Carrara marble. High Above: Conquering the RoofSave this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoThe formal sequence of diagonal deviations intensifies at the Roof level, where the building tapers to accommodate a set of mechanical spaces, a corner duplex, a common terrace with a solarium and semi-covered areas for barbecuing- all of them enjoying attractive views of downtown and the riverfront. Visually, the building opens up and lightens its contorted mass as it rises above the ancient grove in sequenced diagonal recesses to meet the city skyline. Articulation: Whole and HolesSave this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoFollowing the geometry of the balcony system, the triangular openings along the shell open up a series of threshold spaces to control sunlight, natural ventilation and views. Where the shell doubles up, it becomes perforated, creating a passive solar technique that, in addition to the cross-ventilated layout of the apartments, helps produce an effective natural cooling system. Similarly, the chamfered corner and main entry are punctured, albeit in a larger number, allowing the building porch to receive filtered morning light while offering passers-by voyeuristic peeks into the building.In and Out of Material: White ConcreteSave this picture!Details 3White walls have traditionally been associated with the stripping away of details and ornamentation, often resulting in a stale materiality, like the overt whitewash found in many nineteenth-century buildings. Alternatively, Jujuy Redux explores a different kind of whiteness: one that privileges overall plasticity over local materiality and engage in high or low contrast to address depth and flatness, subtle white to off-white.

first_imgGreenlight Manor / Chain10 Architecture & Interior Design InstituteSave this projectSaveGreenlight Manor / Chain10 Architecture & Interior Design Institute Projects KENG-FU LO Save this picture!© Qimin WuText description provided by the architects. As with all city dwellings, there is a lack of nature and harmony which has been remedied in this design. The building base is facing the west, so as to not be tested by the extremely hot weather in the south of Taiwan. Hot weather does not make for a comfortable living environment which is why its effect has been diminished.Save this picture!© Qimin WuThe design philosophy uses the basic teachings of modernism from the 1960s, and the large amount of greenery is akin to a forest in the city. The unobstructed view allows for an impressive view of the city while the projected shadows demonstrate the natural passage of time. The facade of the building utilizes a cantilever beam-column system with a sun-shaded aluminum plate for deeper light and a richness of space. We try to make the building look light and modern, and hope to reshape the traditional perception of Asian people, that luxury is more important than a feeling of wellness and contentment.Save this picture!© Qimin WuThe white cortex coating of the building is conducive to the richness of the shadows that play over it and the facade of the building frame in the sunlight. The variability of the projection of light from the east to west is immediately visible. Through the change of the light and shadows, we feel the variability of time and space. The four seasons of the light wax trees reflect the change of the time axis in the architectural space. All of these things combine to create wonderful memories for the inhabitants of the house.Save this picture!1F PlanSave this picture!ConceptThe residential space includes a master bedroom, family room as well as other space which is all enclosed by the natural foliage. The rooms on the front of the west side are designed with a large sunshade platform to take into account the continuity of the west and the continuity of the green space environment.Save this picture!© Qimin WuOn the second floor, in addition to the inner kitchen, there is also an expansive open kitchen area. The dining table and the sofa area of ​​the living room even extend to the outdoor balcony. It is a living space with no separation that embodies the ideas of continuity and community. The horizontal long window can be seen from the garden. As a rare green living space in the city, the green trees sway in the wind, and the light and shadow from the treetops form interesting changes, allowing the occupants to have a better balanced life experience.Save this picture!© Qimin WuThe facade of the building uses a large number of vertical aluminum and metal pillars in order to strengthen the vertical growth relationship with the trees in the environment. The outer cantilever beam frame of the building is matched with the thick metal decoration material to echo the natural growth of the tree group. With the rhythm of the wind and the changes of light and shadow; a beautiful atmospheric space is created. We attempted to establish a visual balance between the cantilever beams, the reinforced vertical metal grille and the newly implanted light wax trees in the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© Qimin WuThe physical volume and the framework structure are contrasted with the traditional Chinese reality. The east-west sunshine makes the tree shadow in the garden more vivid, adding interest and coordination in the space. My goal and tendency is to seek a simplification of the basic expression of the heart as it relates to a building and nature.Save this picture!© Qimin WuProject gallerySee allShow lessDodged House / Leopold Banchini + Daniel ZamarbideSelected ProjectsConnect House / Story ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tainan City, Taiwan (ROC)Location to be used only as a reference.
