An integral part of our philosophy is that the best design solutions come out of the most difficult spatial problems. The brief for the Corner House presented us with the requirement for a relatively large house and interior spaces on a medium sized site. The challenge was how to satisfy this brief with a contemporary sustainable house that connected to a quality outdoor space and resulted in an exciting external expression that was sensitive to its surroundings.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathRather than the traditional inclusion of front and rear gardens, the design concept sacrificed a rear garden in order to create a single, bigger front garden. The result of siting the new dwelling towards the southern rear end of the site to maximise the setback from the main frontage results in a house which is both exciting and restrained in its street presence, satisfying its brief and good sustainable design principles.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathExternal curves and screens soften the patterned sculptural façade, which floats above its concrete base. The variety of interior living spaces are filled abundant natural light, cross ventilation and warm materials, resulting in a comfortable and open low energy home all year round.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe Corner can be reduced into two simple ideas; a house with one high amenity garden and a broken down building mass. Once this was clarified during the design process many future design decisions could be made in regards to these two interlocking ideas – how building mass was broken down and softened, where the living spaces and bedrooms would be, how the entry would work and so on, the expression of the house to the street and passer-by and so on.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathWe understand that the scale and proportion of a building is an essential priority in Architecture and aim to carefully balance these to achieve memorable outcomes. The Corner is sited, shaped and orientated to allow its owners to enjoy a liveable and welcoming house which interacts with landscape and streetscape.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Skewed House / LIJO.RENY.architectsSelected ProjectsMei and Felixx Propose Housing for Postwar Residential Area in MunichAwarded Competition Share Houses Australia Landscape: Structural Engineer: Builder: Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath+ 10 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Area:  460 m² Area:  460 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBower ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on March 10, 2015Cite: “The Corner / Bower Architecture” 10 Mar 2015.

De Guzman focused on league form

first_img Press Association Jonathan de Guzman hopes Swansea’s two-month break from Europa League action can herald an improvement in their Barclays Premier League form. “I think in the lower half of the table all the teams have been a bit up and down, teams have not been able to find any consistency,” he said. “It will be an open game against them but we have to go there and show our quality and be ready to fight for the win. We have to step up. “We know we will need a much better performance than we showed here and against Hull, but it is a relief for us to have got to the next round of the Europa League and we can put it out of our minds for a bit and focus on the league.” Monday’s Europa League draw could see Swansea land a high-profile tie against the likes of Benfica or Napoli. Their Group A campaign tailed off after their stunning triumph in Valencia in their opening fixture. De Guzman admits Swansea could have had a more comfortable conclusion to their group campaign, as opposed to having to hope Kuban Krasnodar failed to win in Valencia, but feels they can still take confidence from having advanced. “We are happy to be through, it is great for the players and fans,” he said. “We could have made it a lot easier in terms of results but in the end we got the job done and we actually managed to do that. “But really we have to look at ourselves in the mirror. We could have made it easier. If we want to get results we need to pick up our performances. “But it’s my first time in the knockout stages too, as when I have been in Europe before I have been knocked out in the group stage. It’s exciting and everyone wants to try and do their best as we move forward.” The Swans progressed to the last 32 in Europe despite a 1-0 defeat to St Gallen in Switzerland on Thursday, and will find out who they will face next in Monday’s draw. In the meantime, the Welsh club resume Premier League action against Norwich on Sunday. While the depth of Michael Laudrup’s squad has been tested by the demands of European competition, Swansea currently hold a place in the top half of the table. And De Guzman believes the European break can see them climb further up the table and hopefully find a consistency of performance which has been lacking so far this term. The Dutch midfielder said: “It’s a big chance to press on in the Premier League. “We have a lot of games coming up over the next two months and it will be great for us to be able to really focus in on the league and try to move up the table. “It will be difficult but this was the time when we put a good run together last season so hopefully we can do the same again.” Norwich have proven to be something of a bogey side for the Swans since their promotion to the top-flight, and they have yet to beat the Canaries in the Premier League. Chris Hughton’s side have not had the best of starts to the season, but have been boosted by their win at West Brom last weekend. And De Guzman says Swansea will need to show a major improvement from their poor displays in Switzerland and against Hull if they are to take all three points. last_img read more

Inexperienced offensive line eases some concerns against Northwestern

first_imgDoug Marrone admitted he was worried.The right side of his offensive line was completely new, with right guard Ivan Foy and right tackle Lou Alexander starting after never playing in a game with Syracuse. On the left side, Sean Hickey filled the injured Justin Pugh’s spot at left tackle. He, too, had never seen any playing time with the Orange after an injury-riddle start to his collegiate career.But at least Hickey had the experienced Zack Chibane lining up next to him at left guard.Through training camp, Marrone said Foy and Alexander had plenty of work to, with inconsistency being a culprit throughout the preseason. The Syracuse head coach raved about Hickey’s progress, though, and insisted he had no concerns about how he would perform protecting quarterback Ryan Nassib’s blindside.Overall, the line played well in the Orange’s 42-41 loss to Northwestern Saturday. Nassib was only sacked once, and his 470 passing yards wouldn’t have been possible if his line didn’t allow him to have ample time in the pocket.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter the game, Marrone said during his press conference that he wasn’t telling how he truly felt about the line during camp, particularly the right side.“I had a concern for those kids,” Marrone said. “There’s a lot of consistency during practice and I was trying to fight in myself to find out was it inconsistency because you’re playing against the same players all the time and they really know you in and out. But we had four kids playing.”Foy rotated with Rob Trudo at guard, and Andy Phillips rotated with Alexander at right tackle.Alexander’s inexperience did prove costly when he committed a couple of false start penalties that hurt Syracuse in a game where penalties and mental mistakes were all too common.Throughout the preseason, Marrone spoke glowingly about Hickey’s work ethic, progress and his ability to recover so well after serious knee injuries. After Saturday’s game, Marrone’s praise continued.“He got the blindside of the quarterback there and they’ve got some pretty good rushers on that team,” Marrone said. “They were mixing it up pretty good inside, outside. I tell you what, he didn’t play like a guy playing his first game from what I saw on the sideline.”Overall, Marrone’s concerns going into the game had to be lessened after it. Sure, there were some miscues, but overall, the Northwestern defense really never managed to break through the line.The key, though, is keeping that up against teams much better than the Wildcats, starting next Saturday against Southern California.
