Power House, Paul Archer Design’s refurbishment of a private house in Highbury North London, takes the modernisation of a typical London Victorian terraced house in a new direction with a highly sculptural timber clad rear extension. Located in close proximity to the entrance of Arsenal Football Club’s original stadium on Highbury Hill, the house was previously the home of the stadium’s grounds man. The front door of the house is painted in the signature red of the Gunner’s home kit as a nod to the house’s history.

A structural glass box allows direct sunlight to penetrate deep into the plan. The upper floors of the extension are clad with a skin of Douglas fir battens, which run both inside and out as exterior cladding and interior wall lining, emphasising the interplay between volumes. The cladding extends partially over the glass, patterning the light and providing shading. Save this picture!© Andy StaggA whole new ground floor level has been created beneath the original house. This has an open plan where a variety of activities – cooking, dining and relaxing – can all take place simultaneously in an arrangement that is conducive to 21st century family living. Fully glazed folding doors give direct access to the garden deck. A glass panel at the end wall of the first floor music/playroom creates a balcony overlooking the main space, flooding light into the original house and making a connection between the two spaces. A glazed sliding door closes off the space when privacy is required. Save this picture!© Andy StaggWood is put to striking effect in this house and is abundant in all aspects of the scheme from the signature linear cladding, external decking, interior floors, storage spaces disguised as walls and bench seating, and an island unit with breakfast bar that runs the length of the kitchen. The built-in shelving with fold down desks in the children’s playroom is made conspicuous by its bright green hues, providing a strong counterpoint to the natural wood used throughout the house. The scheme was inspired by the clients’ love of the outdoors and a taste for Nordic design. It demonstrates how natural light and materials can be combined to create a backdrop for simple yet stylish contemporary furnishings.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessTanatorio Sant Joan Despí / Batlle i Roig ArquitectesSelected ProjectsVideo: IKEA Foundation Design a Shelter for RefugeesVideos Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officePaul Archer DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on July 05, 2013Cite: “Power House / Paul Archer Design” 05 Jul 2013.

For James, Cleveland trip was to support Ilgauskas

first_imgMiami Heat’s LeBron James watches an NBA basketball game between the New York Knicks and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, March 8, 2014, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)CHICAGO (AP) — LeBron James simply wanted to support his friend, so the Miami Heat star found himself back in his old stomping grounds.James couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show his support for Zydrunas Ilgauskas. He was back in Cleveland as the Cavaliers retired his longtime teammate’s jersey Saturday.“It was special, a special time for Z, and I’m happy I was able to be a part of it,” the four-time MVP said before Sunday’s game against the Bulls in Chicago.Zydrunas Ilgauskas is introduced during halftime of an NBA basketball game between the New York Knicks and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, March 8, 2014, in Cleveland. Soft-spoken and doggedly determined, Ilgauskas, who overcame serious injuries and personal tragedy to become one of Cleveland’s best and most beloved players, had his No. 11 jersey retired Saturday night during an elaborate halftime ceremony certain to be emotionally poignant. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)James spent thousands to charter a plane for the ceremony and kept a rather low profile, staying close to the Cavaliers’ bench and taking pictures with his phone. It was a surreal sight, given the circumstances surrounding his departure to Miami four years ago — his decision and owner Dan Gilbert’s infuriated letter in response.James’ relationship with the organization has improved in recent years, with former general manager Chris Grant doing all he could to mend it on both sides before getting fired a month ago.  And with Ilgauskas being honored, James wanted to be there.“He was one constant teammate I had over the years, one constant friend that I had as far as this profession,” he said. “You can’t really get those times back. I felt like for me to be there for eight of his years, being a good friend, there was no way I was going to miss it if I had an opportunity to (attend).”In other news, James said he has not been medically cleared to play without a protective mask. He ditched it during Thursday’s game at San Antonio.“It’s not comfortable,” said James, who broke his nose against Oklahoma City on Feb. 20.Zydrunas Ilgauskas’s jersey is raised during a ceremony during halftime of an NBA basketball game between the New York Knicks and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, March 8, 2014, in Cleveland.

Dobbs shines, Steelers roll by Panthers 39-24

first_imgIt’s a reality Dobbs can live with if he has to. Then again, after throwing for a touchdown and running for another in a 39-24 preseason victory over Carolina on Thursday night, Dobbs made a compelling case to stick around — be it in Pittsburgh or elsewhere in the league.“I don’t really get too nervous,” Dobbs said. “I don’t really play that game. I know it’s a stressful time. I’ll just let it play itself out. That’s all I can do. I know it’s not really in my hands. I feel like I’ve played well. Played strong.”Dobbs, fighting for one of the backup jobs behind Ben Roethlisberger, vaulted into the end zone for a 3-yard scoring run to cap Pittsburgh’s first drive. He added a 27-yard strike to Tevin Jones later in the opening quarter and finished 8 of 12 for 151 yards to cap an impressive training camp.“I think it’s night and day from this season to last season,” said Dobbs, a fourth-round pick in 2017. “Just in total command and understanding of the offense and then being able to go out and make plays on the field. Throughout the preseason, I was able to make plays when I was given my opportunity. It shows in my command, I think it shows in my play and in how the offense was able to move up and down the field.”It just might not be enough for Dobbs to stick around.Dobbs, veteran Landry Jones and rookie Mason Rudolph are all vying for a backup spot behind Ben Roethlisberger. Jones, who has played well while filling in for Roethlisberger over the last three seasons, is likely safe. So too is Rudolph, a third-round pick this spring who came on for Dobbs late in the first half on Thursday and threw for a pair of touchdowns of his own.The Steelers (3-1) could keep all four quarterbacks when rosters are trimmed to 53 on Saturday, then perhaps deal one of the backups — Dobbs being the best candidate — to add depth elsewhere.While Dobbs stressed he loves Pittsburgh, he insisted he’s not going to lose sleep trying to figure out the various scenarios.“You have to focus on the task at hand, focus on the process and focus on what you can control and just keep hitting the wall,” Dobbs said. “It will break at some point.”CAROLINA’S QUANDARYThe quarterback math isn’t quite so complicated for the Panthers (3-1). Taylor Heincke and Garrett Gilbert have spent the last six weeks trying to gain some separation in the fight to back up Cam Newton.Heincke started the finale and moved the ball, going 7 of 12 for 68 yards and a 6-yard touchdown to Mose Frazier. Gilbert came on in the second quarter and was 4 of 7 for 23 yards. Rookie Kyle Allen played the entire second half, completing 25 of 35 passes for 250 yards and a score.“I think there are some good things,” Rivera said. “It’s tough when you are not playing with everybody, but we know that going in, it was going to be tough. And we’ll take a look at that and we will evaluate. We’ll come to a conclusion in the next couple days.”SWITZER DEBUTSPittsburgh wide receiver Ryan Switzer capped a frantic 72-hour stretch by returning one punt for 9 yards and averaging 21.5 yards on two kickoff returns. Switzer — acquired from Oakland on Monday to bolster the Steelers’ return game — also saw a handful of snaps at receiver but was not targeted.INJURIESPanthers: RB Elijah Hood (lower body) was hurt on the opening kickoff and did not return.Steelers: S Malik Golden (knee) was carted off the field in the fourth quarter. Golden was also hurt in the 2017 preseason finale against Carolina. WR Damoun Patterson (turf toe), LB Keith Kelsey (pectoral) and LB Olasunkanmi Adeniyi (hamstring) also left with injuries.ANTHEMThere were no protests by players on either team during the national anthem.UP NEXTPanthers: Welcome Dallas to Bank of America Stadium for the season opener on Sept. 9.Steelers: Open at Cleveland for the second straight season when they visit the Browns on Sept. 9.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL PITTSBURGH (AP) — Josh Dobbs has never been cut from a team in his life, no matter the sport. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback understands the streak is in jeopardy due to the indelicate politics that come with putting together an NFL roster.
