Construction has completed on Pavilion House. Award-winning Waechter Architecture was tasked with the challenge of designing a “glass house” with privacy.  The solution was to use a pavilion like form where the 4 support “legs” of the building are strategically placed to block unwanted views and provide privacy.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThese 4 rectangular legs support the second story and have dual functionality as they also contain the stairs, kitchen, half bath and storage on the ground level. Between these legs, the open floor plan expands to outdoor living through floor to ceiling glass and doors. The polished concrete floor is cast on grade, creating a seamless transition to the surrounding yard.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Waechter ArchitectureStepping into the north leg the mood changes as the stairway leads up to the bedroom and bathroom suites. Upstairs the spaces and rooms are more intimate. This part of the house is designed for flexible living arrangements (family or house sharing) with 3 compact, self-contained suites that wrap around a central landing and common study space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Waechter ArchitectureThe exterior is clad in standing seam white metal panels of varying width. The panels wrap the pavilion legs giving the impression that the house has been reductively sculpted from a single mass.Save this picture!Courtesy of Waechter ArchitectureThe white siding and roof reflect solar radiation in order to better keep the home cool.  Additionally, the envelope exceeds code insulation requirements with the use of spray foam insulation.  Full height windows on the ground level are recessed into the building mass for solar shading.Save this picture!Courtesy of Waechter ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessDaniel Libeskind to Build “Pyramid Tower” in JerusalemArchitecture NewsLondon’s ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower Will Soon Be the World’s Tallest SlideArchitecture News Share ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeWaechter ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortlandUnited StatesPublished on July 29, 2015Cite: “Pavilion House / Waechter Architecture” 29 Jul 2015.

Serena survives scare to reach U.S. Open third round

first_imgBy Frank PingueNEW YORK (Reuters) – Serena Williams survived a second-round scare at the U.S. Open on Wednesday with a 5-7 6-3 6-1 win over American wildcard Catherine McNally to keep alive her hopes of securing a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title.World number eight Williams, who captured the first of her six U.S. Open titles two years before her 17-year-old opponent was born, spent the first half of the match trying to find her rhythm but when she did she was off to the races.“She really came out and played really well, she showed no fear,” said Williams. “She had absolutely nothing to lose and she played like it.” McNally, competing in only her sixth tour-level event of her career and against the highest-ranked player she has ever faced, used an old-school serve-and-volley approach along with a lethal slice backhand to unsettle Williams.So effective was McNally, who has tried to model parts of her game after Swiss great Roger Federer, that at one point in the match Williams screamed at her racquet “why are you missing?”. But Williams, whose earliest U.S. Open exit came in her 1997 debut when she lost in the third round, turned the match around when she finally broke McNally’s serve and then consolidated in a tight service game for a 5-2 lead in the second set.Williams looked more like herself in the decider – both serving and returning better – as she went up a double break for a quick 3-0 lead before storming home and sealing the match when she broke to love.“I survived tonight,” said Williams. “I am not too pleased with the way I played at all,” said Williams, whose 28 unforced errors were two fewer than McNally. “But it’s OK, I’m alive, I’m still here and happy to be on this court. I’ll do better. I promise.”Williams dropped only one point through her first three service games but it took her some time to make any inroads on the McNally serve as the American was hitting her targets with pinpoint precision.The match proved a far more gruelling affair for Williams than she had in her opener, where she dismantled Maria Sharapova with one of her most dominant performances since returning from maternity leave in 2018.McNally said she did not feel intimated walking onto the biggest stage in tennis to face one of the game’s all-time best players and left the match feeling beyond proud of what she accomplished. “I got a set off Serena Williams. Had her close in the second set, too. Had some chances,” said McNally.“For me, it just gives me a lot of confidence, shows me that I can compete out on the biggest stages. Just keep my head down, I’m ready to go back to work.”Up next for Williams will be either Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei or Czech Karolina Muchova, who were unable to get their match in earlier due to rainy conditions.last_img read more

Riot Games to introduce franchising to EU LCS in 2019, spot buy-ins from £7m

first_imgThe European League of Legends Championship Series, often abbreviated as EU LCS, is following suit from its North American equivalent by becoming a franchised league in 2019.ESPN has reported that franchising isn’t the only change coming to the league in 2019, with revenue sharing and increased player salaries also being introduced. Not only that, relegation will be scrapped, with teams entering partnership agreements for three years – only being removed if they have consistently poor performances or disciplinary issues.It’s said that Riot Games, the game developer and league organiser, will open applications for the European LCS on Wednesday 28th March, with buy-in prices coming in at 8,000,000 euros (£6,997,307.20) for teams already in the league and 10,500,000 euros (£9,183,965.70) for teams that aren’t currently competing.The restructuring of the league will see a revenue pool created and subsequently distributed to Riot Games, teams, and players. This money will be sourced from league sponsorship and media rights, as well as individual team sponsorships and merchandising. Players will receive 35% of the revenue pool, with a further 32.5% being used by Riot Games for broadcast production, live events, and any other league expense. The remaining 32.5% will partly be shared evenly across the teams, with extra going to teams based on “undisclosed competitive and engagement metrics”.The minimum salary for players will rise from $29,719 (£20,965.57) to $74,749 (£52,732.43) in 2019. A player development platform will also be incorporated into the restructuring of the league, providing players with support to help them become the best they can be. Nothing final has been set on this front, with more information expected to come at a later date.There will be a three-stage application process for both existing and new organisations that want to claim their spot in the league. The first stage involves organisations sending finances and plans to the league, with a select few going through to the second stage – which includes an in-person application review with Riot Games representatives from July to September. Then from October to December, Riot Games will choose and announce the chosen teams for the EU LCS.The NA LCS embraced franchising for the 2018 season, but nothing was said regarding the EU LCS at the time. The Overwatch League’s inaugural season kicked off this year, and it saw the creation of 12 new franchises that would all compete against each other. Tencent, earlier this month, announced a franchised league for mobile MOBA Honor of Kings.Esports Insider says: It’s good to see that European players and teams will soon receive a similar treatment as those competing in North America. The increase in salary is hefty, and will hopefully squash the complaints that the EU LCS lacks substantial financial backing. We can only hope that the teams that already compete are able to stump up the cash needed to continue to be involved now things are getting a lot tastier on the financial side.last_img read more

Zion Williamson’s family received $400,000 payment before he went to Duke, says affidavit

first_imgThe plaintiff, Williamson’s former marketing agent Gina Ford of Prime Marketing Sports, is attempting to prove Williamson was ineligible to play NCAA basketball and therefore unable to explain breaking his contract with her company by pointing to a North Carolina law protecting amateur athletes. In other words, she claims Williamson forfeited his amateur status by accepting money.“It was further my understanding that to secure the verbal commitment from Lee Anderson [acting on behalf of Zion Williamson and the Williamson family] to have Zion sign with ‘MMG,’ Lee Anderson had demanded, and Duric paid, some $400,000 to Lee Anderson and Chubby Wells,” wrote Kreiss in the legal document. NEW: Donald Kreiss affidavit offered by Gina Ford claims that Zion Williamson agreed to pay Slavko Duric between $7-10 million to relinquish exclusive marketing rights in favor of CAA, conditioned on him keeping the $400K loan a “secret” and “shredding” all records of both Ks.— Daniel Wallach (@WALLACHLEGAL) July 9, 2020MORE: Background details of the Zion Williamson lawsuitWilliamson’s attorney denied the affidavit claim to The Athletic on Thursday and noted the ID attached to Williamson in the filing did not match up with his measurements.“This is a desperate and irresponsible attempt to smear Mr. Williamson at the very time he has the opportunity to live his dream of playing professional basketball,” said attorney Jeffrey S. Klein.This is the “Letter of Declatation” that Zion Williamson and his stepfather supposedly signed in Dec. 2019 acknowledging the $400K loan made by Slavko Duric in Oct. 2018 (when still enrolled in Duke), along with his driver’s license for authentication.Real or fake?You decide.— Daniel Wallach (@WALLACHLEGAL) July 9, 2020 The marketing agency Zion Williamson left shortly before beginning his NBA career is suing him for $100 million and levying serious allegations about compensation he received as an amateur athlete, which would have deemed him ineligible to play for Duke.On Thursday, an affidavit signed by a man named Donald Kreiss, who purportedly worked as a middleman between Maximum Management Group and Williamson, alleged Williamson received $400,000 in exchange for a verbal commitment to sign with the Canadian firm.last_img read more
