Is it feasible to extend a semi-detached dwelling on a narrow site ? The benefit this property had over comparable detached dwellings was the opportunity to build two levels directly on the party wall. This opened up an array of spatial possibilities allowing a ground floor extension of a new kitchen, dining, meals and living, and on the first floor, a master bed, workstation and en-suite.

We searched for forms and materials that would create a relationship with the existing building but ultimately end up in a contemporary expression that would make no apology for being new. The resultant form is a black, single pitched volume that extrudes along the site reflecting same angle as the existing tiled roof, and switching dramatically in direction at the rear, responding to adjoining neighbours sun access and opening up to a north facing rear garden.

These common materials serve to bind the two parts together, reinforcing the idea that both old and new, so different in era and style, are borne of the same substance. An important part of the owners brief was a separate dining area screened from the kitchen that would still maintain a spatial connection. This is the first space entered when leaving the old building. It is intended as a night time space, being the deepest into the site and is surrounded by a tactile combination of materials including white bagged brickwork referencing the face brickwork at the front of the building, white painted timber cladding connecting to the painted timber soffit of the portico, glossy white steel plate, exposed polished concrete, charcoal timber shiplap cladding and a timber veneer drinks cabinet. During the day, skylights and long windows wash perpendicular walls, so the space receives a reflected and ambient glow of light. Save this picture!© Dianna Snape At the core of the extension is the kitchen with void above, which connects a first floor master bedroom and en-suite in a lofty mezzanine. The kitchen is a timber insertion into a white space, and includes a solid timber island bench that doubles as a meals table connecting directly to the living area. A double height wall alongside the stair has large windows placed at the north end to flood it with clear and coloured light, and a long window running the entire western side, creates ever-changing patterns of direct and reflected light throughout the afternoon and evening. The living area is fully glazed to the northern garden and the first floor the en-suite above sits in a deep white recess for privacy, enjoying a high pitching ceiling that opens the space up to the sky and nearby trees . Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe design was the product of a fluid working relationship between the clients and architect with the clients embracing new ideas with enthusiasm. Good communication between everyone led to a pleasurable design process and a building that emerged on the other side with its integrity intact. The extension that eventuated from what was a narrow site feels spatially generous and tactile materials combined with ever-changing qualities of light have created a series of interconnected spaces that are a pleasure to spend time in.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Diller Scofidio + Renfro talk Hirshhorn “Bubble” on The Creators ProjectArticlesAurinkokivi School Awarded Proposal / Rudanko+KankkunenArticles Share Architects: AM Architecture Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAM ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRichmondHousesAustraliaPublished on February 18, 2013Cite: “North Fitzroy House / ” 18 Feb 2013.

Governor Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf Discuss the Impact of Education Funding Increases in Philadelphia during “Schools that Teach” Roundtable and Tour

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf Discuss the Impact of Education Funding Increases in Philadelphia during “Schools that Teach” Roundtable and Tour First Lady Frances Wolf,  Press Release,  Schools That Teach,  Severance Tax Philadelphia, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf today continued their “Schools That Teach” tour in Philadelphia, where they heard from teachers and administrators in the Philadelphia School District about the district’s plans to ensure that education funding from the governor’s 2015-16 budget goes directly into the classroom.“Pennsylvania ranks near the bottom in the country in state funding for K through 12 education and my proposed budget makes historic investments at all levels – early childhood education through higher education,” said Governor Wolf. “After years of funding cuts that resulted in the loss of educators, increased class sizes, and cuts to valuable programs, I want to ensure that the new funding in my budget reaches the classroom and directly impacts student achievement. Focusing on education will allow us to lay the foundation for long-term economic growth.”Governor Wolf’s budget proposal restores massive cuts made over the last four years, with a commitment to increase school funding by $2 billion over four years by instituting a commonsense severance tax on oil and natural gas. Governor Wolf’s proposal, called the Pennsylvania Education Reinvestment Act, is expected to generate over a billion dollars by 2017 by enacting a reasonable 5% severance tax plus 4.7 cents per thousand feet of volume on natural gas extraction.In a roundtable discussion at William H. Hunter Elementary School, the governor and first lady heard from school leaders and stakeholders about their plans to offer advanced courses and STEM-focused programs to prepare students for higher education, as well as to provide assistance through professional development, college and career counseling, and technical education to ensure smooth transitions into the workforce. The district also hopes to provide personalized help and community partnerships to assist struggling students and their families, as well as restore enrichment programs like music, arts, world languages, and library services.“This is an important opportunity for districts to have comprehensive conversations about how to invest this funding on proven resources and programs that will improve student learning,” Governor Wolf said. “What is being proposed here in Philadelphia is a prime example of a plan that will ensure this historic education investment reaches the classroom while providing clear benchmarks to measure the results of student achievement.”“You can see what happens when children have access to opportunities. We need Governor Wolf’s funding to open up those opportunities in Philadelphia,” said Philadelphia School District Superintendent Dr. William Hite. “Here in our district, we are asking each school to tell us how they’d use the additional funding in the governor’s budget to their unique needs. We look forward to working with the governor to deliver resources that Philadelphia desperately needs.”In March, Department of Education Acting Secretary Pedro Rivera sent a letter to superintendents in all 500 districts detailing accountability measures to ensure the education funding proposed in Governor Wolf’s 2015-2016 budget is spent directly on students in the classroom to allow them to compete in a modern economy. In the letter, Acting Secretary Rivera called on districts to submit plans to ensure this new investment reaches the classroom and to measure results for Pennsylvania’s students. As of yesterday, 92 percent of Pennsylvania school districts across the commonwealth submitted funding impact plans to the state Department of Education, outlining how the governor’s proposed $400 million basic education funding increase will be invested directly in classrooms.MEDIA CONTACT: Jeff Sheridan – 717.783.1116# # #center_img May 29, 2015last_img read more
