House at Kilmore / GKMP Architects

first_imgArchDaily Projects 2015 “COPY” Year:  CopyHouses•Kilmore, Ireland Ireland photographs:  Alice ClancyPhotographs:  Alice ClancyEngineer:Arthur Murphy & CoContractor:Bawn DevelopmentsQuantity Suryeyor:Sarah Stafford SurveyingCity:KilmoreCountry:IrelandMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Alice ClancyRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEACeramicsTerrealTerracotta Baguettes in Vork CenterEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsCeramicsApariciPorcelain Tiles – TangoText description provided by the architects. This new family home occupies a one acre site on farmland close to the beach at Ballyhealy in the south-east of Ireland. The house is oriented to the view of the last remaining Norman tower of Ballyhealy Castle to the south-west and to the ruins of St. John’s Church to the north. The building is conceived as a single compact form; it takes pleasure in its compactness. We have deliberately sought to enclose the biggest volume in the smallest surface and to recognise the formal virtue in this intrinsic economy. In this way we aim to make the best use of the available land; to achieve an appropriate relationship to the surrounding landscape; and to intensify and animate the interior life of the house. The house has a simple and direct appearance externally, establishing a resonance with the vernacular structures in the locality. It has a pyramidal slate roof and lime-rendered walls. The form is slightly asymmetrical to respond to its context and the roof is then cut to set up the entrance.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe pyramid roof is made by four large-span timber beams that meet at the apex. These are supported by blockwork walls. The structure gives a freedom to the interior space that is then loosely arranged around a central birch plywood stairs. The living areas are on the west and south side enjoying the view to the Castle. The bedrooms are on the east and have staggered corner windows to open up to the morning sun. The house has a deep overhang on the south and west to create a threshold and a sheltered external space.Save this picture!© Alice ClancyProject gallerySee allShow lessDelft Architectural Studies on Housing: Affordable Dwellings for Growing CitiesPublicationsCultural Center in Baud / Studio 02Selected Projects Share Save this picture!© Alice Clancy+ 17 Share 2015 Architects: GKMP Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeGKMP ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKilmoreIrelandPublished on December 24, 2015Cite: “House at Kilmore / GKMP Architects” 24 Dec 2015.

Former prep school student released from jail over good behavior in sex assault case

first_imgCorey Hendrickson/Getty Images(CONCORD, N.H.) — The prep school student who was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate was released from jail for good behavior.Owen Labrie’s attorney confirmed to ABC News that he was released from Merrimack County’s jail Monday morning after nearly six months. “Owen is happy to be home with his family. He will be settling in and working on rebuilding his life,” his lawyers said in a statement to ABC News. “He’d like to thank the friends and family that have stood by him and supported him all these years.”Labrie, who is now 23 years old, was a student at the prestigious St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire when he was accused of sexually assaulting a younger student.The case raised questions about sex culture on campus in light of accusations that the alleged incident was part of a so-called “Senior Salute,” where seniors allegedly target younger students.In October 2015, Labrie was sentenced to 12 months in prison. A judge suspended that sentence and Labrie was freed on bail under curfew at the home of his mother in Tunbridge, Vt., while Labrie appealed the decision. In March 2016, the court revoked his bail after prosecutors accused him of missing his court-ordered curfew several times.Earlier this month, the New Hampshire Supreme Court denied Labrie’s appeal to have a new trial based on ineffective counsel.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Rebecca Symes is an extraordinary leader

first_imgTo the Editor: The first time I saw Rebecca Symes conduct a Harsimus Cove Association meeting as president, I knew I was seeing someone with extraordinary leadership capabilities. This meant a lot to me personally because I founded the organization and have worked hard as a neighborhood activist for many years. With time, my respect and admiration for her has deepened.Before deciding to endorse Rebecca, and in fact to volunteer on her campaign, I questioned her at length about her background, her knowledge, her reasons for seeking office, and, most important to me, her values. She came up aces on all counts.Walking the area with her as we knock on doors and meet voters, I’ve also developed a warm regard for her as a person. And I continue to learn about her grasp of the issues we face downtown, her ideas about how to deal with them, and her ability to listen to, relate to, and learn from others. I trust Rebecca, and I’m convinced that she’s not only hard-working but also highly capable and ethical. For these reasons, I’m happy to enthusiastically support Rebecca for City Council.
