New York studios Ennead Architects and Rockwell Group have converted a 19th-century railroad warehouse into the headquarters of a charity organization in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood.

Studios transformed a one-block train repair shop in Brooklyn into the headquarters and distribution center for the charity City Harvest, transforming it into a bright, open space by modernizing the original structure.

Ennead Architects worked with Rockwell Group to design a headquarters for City Harvest

Ennead Architects led the external and internal redesign while Rockwell Group designed an event space and test kitchen for the facility, called the Cohen Community Food Rescue Center.

The historic elements of the facade were kept largely intact by the redesign, with most interventions taking place in the long warehouse-like spaces of the interior.

“For us, the most sustainable building is one that is already there, so our design approach was informed by the potential already existing in this building, which we revitalized and filled with daylight to create an open and welcoming environment. for all,” said Richard Olcott, Partner at Ennead Architects.

Inside, Ennead opened the 150,000-square-foot (13,935-meter) structure and discovered features such as clerestory windows that had been closed.

Peace of mind starts with good perimeter security https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/peace-of-mind-starts-with-good-perimeter-security/ Tue, 22 Nov 2022 07:38:21 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/peace-of-mind-starts-with-good-perimeter-security/

Have you driven around your suburbs and seen properties with very low walls or no walls at all, the sprawling lawn leading from the road to the front door? It might send shivers down your spine, but it’s more common than you might think that people don’t have proper perimeter protection.

Fidelity ADT warns that this is not a good idea given the crime statistics. Perimeter protection is your first line of defense when it comes to protecting your family and property. So says Charnel Hattingh, group leader of marketing and communications at Fidelity ADT.

READ ALSO : Home security – talk to anyone working on your property

“While there are a number of different defenses you can use to keep your family safe, the goal is always the same: to maintain an environment that can be monitored and leaves you in control of who enters or not. One way to take control and have peace of mind is to secure the perimeter of your property,” she said.

She points out that two of the most common access points for criminals are doors left open or improperly secured and open garage doors.

According to Fidelity ADT, a combination of electronic and mechanical security elements and systems is very effective in deterring and detecting intruders. As such, the ideal setup is an integrated perimeter protection solution that integrates other security systems, such as an alarm, electric fence, CCTV and outdoor beams, all linked to a response service. armed.

Hattingh added that since our homes are our sanctuaries, people want to be able to come home after a long day of work and relax.

Proper perimeter security gives you the peace of mind to get up knowing that there is a physical barrier between you and the outside world. Moreover, not only is it essential to keep criminals out, but it is also a clear message for them to move on because “this house is not an easy target!”

Six things that make a house an easy target:

  • No wall or fence.
  • Low walls.
  • Doors left open.
  • Garage doors left open.
  • A clear view of the street in the house.
  • No electric fencing or other form of additional security on the walls.

In conclusion, Hattingh said it’s important to remember that criminals change and change their habits and behavior all the time. Therefore, homeowners also need to keep up with the trends and improve ways to secure their home.

READ ALSO : Armed response vs surveillance – do you understand the difference?

The first principle of better home security is to make your home less of a target. That means looking at things like upgrading your perimeter, good sensor lighting around the house, and electric fencing, outdoor beams, and an alarm that’s hooked up to a reputable armed response company.

She concluded: “Effective perimeter security allows you to monitor who is entering and also allows you to deny entry to anyone who may have sinister intentions. Just as your skin protects you from the outside environment and invasive germs, your perimeter protects your family and home from unwanted intruders.

This all-white minimalist cabin is the flexible and functional little house on wheels you need https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/this-all-white-minimalist-cabin-is-the-flexible-and-functional-little-house-on-wheels-you-need/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 11:07:58 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/this-all-white-minimalist-cabin-is-the-flexible-and-functional-little-house-on-wheels-you-need/

Tiny house builder Base Cabin collaborated with Matt Goodman Architecture Office to create this super minimalist tiny house on wheels inspired by the simplicity of cattle sheds. The clean and simple house has been designed to merge beautifully with farms, vineyards or even the Australian bush. The aim was to make the residents feel connected to the environment and that there was no feeling of separation between the house and the landscape,

Designer: Base Cabin x Matt Goodman Architecture Office

“The design takes nothing away from the actual scenic landscape, but provides shelter for humans to occupy,” said Matt Goodman. You enter the house through a sliding glass door, which seamlessly disappears into a wall cavity, and also allows generous amounts of light and air to enter the house. Although the house occupies a small footprint, it is more spacious than it is due to the placement of operable windows, which provide lovely views no matter where you are.

The steel-framed tiny house features a durable exterior clad in white ColorBond, while the interiors are clad in whitewash plywood, providing a soft and warm finish to the entire space. It also ensures that the place seems less cluttered and more open. By integrating much of the functional storage requirements into the walls, they were able to maximize floor space. By adding a pull-down bed, along with a pull-down table, they ensured residents could make the most of the home‘s small footprint, day or night.

The Murphy bed occupies the maximum amount of space in the house, on which two people can sleep. There is also a full wall of storage cabinets, which can safely store a large number of items out of sight. During the day, when the bed is recessed into the wall, you can use the space as a home office or dining room, simply by pulling out the rounded table which is locked in place with a removable leg. Two stools, which are stored under the cabin’s built-in bench, can be removed and placed together with the table, to create a clever seating area for working or dining.

The tiny house also includes a kitchenette at one end, which has been fitted with a small sink under a large opening window, a built-in fridge and a sleek counter for cooking. A practical built-in day bed with a cushion is placed next to the kitchen. There is a large window above the day bed, which lets in plenty of light and air, making it a comfortable place to read or relax.

The bathroom is extremely well designed. It includes a toilet, a rain shower with skylight, an oval mirror and a suspended sink with a faucet built into the wall. Overall, the cabin is a modern, minimal, and compact living space priced at $68,000. You also have the option of adding solar power and composting toilets, if you want to go the sustainable route!

Six Degrees Architects to Design Beulah New Brunswick Townhouse Project https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/six-degrees-architects-to-design-beulah-new-brunswick-townhouse-project/ Sun, 20 Nov 2022 22:52:39 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/six-degrees-architects-to-design-beulah-new-brunswick-townhouse-project/

Award-winning Melbourne-based developer Beulah has appointed Six Degrees Architects to design an eco-responsible townhouse project on a newly acquired property in Brunswick. Located at 17-23 Hodgson Street, the well-maintained 3,700m² site has two expansive street frontages totaling over 120m.

Expanding its footprint into the city center, Beulah aims to offer a collection of 25 eco-sustainable low-rise townhouses whose design seeks to retain the existing heritage facade while incorporating biophilic elements and sustainable materials. The Brunswick site joins Beulah’s growing portfolio in Melbourne’s inner north, including Fitzroy and Northcote.

Strategically located near the famous Sydney Road shopping district including Barkly Square Shopping Center and Union Square Shopping Centre, the site offers quick and easy access to some of Melbourne’s popular parks such as Royal Park, Princes Park and the Zoo from Melbourne, as well as the picturesque Temple Park.

“Brunswick is a thriving, creative and environmentally conscious pocket of Melbourne and we look forward to working with the local people and community to bring justice to the site,” said Beulah chief executive Jiaheng Chan.

“We are thrilled to be working with Six Degrees Architects to deliver a collection of raw, heritage warehouse style townhouses that are environmentally sustainable, designed to be low density, unique and environmentally friendly.

“Our goal is to attract like-minded people to this fantastic place, with the opportunity to experience and breathe all the wonderful things Brunswick and its people have to offer,” Chan added.

Six Degrees Director Peter Malatt looks forward to working with Beulah to transform the historic warehouse compound into 25 outstanding Brunswick townhouses.

“We are an architectural firm with a strong connection to Brunswick and a passion for its uniqueness and history. We appreciate his sense of community and we love his stories,” he said.

After completing the park and townhouses on Heller Street, as well as the Spanish Cellars apartments on the adjacent streets, Malatt sees the Beulah project as an opportunity to leverage their local knowledge and play to the rich history of the site.

“Beulah and Six Degrees is a natural collaborative partnership and we are really looking forward to working together on this fantastic project. Our vision of transforming spaces, creating experiences and a sense of community is strongly aligned. We have a shared passion for creating 25 exceptional homes as well as an authentic and meaningful neighborhood that is strongly connected to Brunswick.

The eco-friendly approach of the Brunswick townhouse project follows Beulah’s most innovative residential project to date, The Wilds, which is set to become the first carbon-neutral single-family housing development in central Melbourne.

Located on Cunningham Street in the desirable Westgarth area of ​​Northcote, the development aspires to set a benchmark for environmentally sustainable design principles, with all homes incorporating a solar panel and running on 100% electricity, allowing homes to run on fossil fuels. -without fuel.

“The Wilds reflects our continued commitment to quality, sustainability and eco-responsible practices and this has been very well received by buyers. We intend to leverage this research and experience working with Six Degrees Architects to create a thoughtful design for Brunswick that considers people and the planet,” Chan concluded.

The cave house offers spectacular views of Glenwood Canyon, life inside the rock formations https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/the-cave-house-offers-spectacular-views-of-glenwood-canyon-life-inside-the-rock-formations/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 23:32:21 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/the-cave-house-offers-spectacular-views-of-glenwood-canyon-life-inside-the-rock-formations/

Well, if you clicked on this story, you already know a little about what to expect. But the Glenwood Springs Cave Home is more than meets the eye, and we’ll take you inside to show you what we mean.

cave-house-5pkg-transfer-frame-2110.jpg

When you first arrive on the property, you walk up a mine shaft elevator to descend over 100 feet into solid rock. The elevator shaft was hand chiseled by the owner and builder of the house years ago, and as you descend slowly you can see places where it has been cut at rock level. It’s just a taste of what’s to come.

Once the ride has stopped and the iron elevator doors are opened, you enter what could be anyone’s basement, a pool table sits in the middle of a open space with glass windows against the back wall. The main difference is that the ceiling is steep rock formations that are uneven and a little tight in places for people over 6 feet.

The guest bedroom is just to the left, with an ironic sign hanging on the wall proclaiming “man cave”. Our tour guide/estate agent Will Vannice points out that occasionally water drips from the ceiling, but that’s part of the charm of living inside a cave system. The bathroom is integrated into the guest bedroom with frosted glass blocks.

“Easier to get them down room by room in the elevator,” Vannice points out.

Just outside this room, through the glass wall is the balcony, with stunning views of Glenwood Canyon. The patio goes up and down the levels, bringing you about half a floor to the next set of rooms, including the kitchen, bedroom, TV area and laundry/jukebox room. A large open patio sits just outside, housing a hot tub (unfortunately no longer working.)

But the part that makes this house so amazing is right next to the bedroom, behind a closed door. If you walk past it down a small hallway like any other house, you are transported into an incredible cave system and open room, where stalactites grip the ceiling and ribbon rock formations adorn the walls. It’s a totally different feel to the rest of the house, and it’s even noticeable in the air around you; the musty air of a cave system, just across from a house. Tools are still stuck in parts of the rock, with a path leading to a scene one would expect from any good caving movie.

“We have an idea but we really don’t know how far back it goes,” Vannice said with a laugh. “We’re going to have someone skinny go check it out for us and report back to us.”

The 25-acre property also has plenty of room to expand and, depending on who would buy it, plenty of room to expand existing rooms, provided they are comfortable tending to it. like the previous owner.

The Cave of the Chimes system is featured in the book “Caves of Colorado”, where the home builder got the idea to install it in the first place. The home is currently listed for nearly $2.5 million. Vannice said he knew the place was special even before it was featured online on social media accounts like “Zillow gone wild”.

In this time he said he has shown the house a few times and even had someone check out the property by private helicopter as it is a possibility for someone to access it from the outside. coming. Right now, they’re just looking for the right person to make this cozy Colorado cave their home base.

Mills wife charged with grand theft, altering checks, opening fraudulent loans in two felony counts https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/mills-wife-charged-with-grand-theft-altering-checks-opening-fraudulent-loans-in-two-felony-counts/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 22:32:55 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/mills-wife-charged-with-grand-theft-altering-checks-opening-fraudulent-loans-in-two-felony-counts/

CASPER, Wyo – A Mills woman pleaded not guilty to charges of theft and forgery in Natrona County District Court this week after police said she repeatedly altered and deposited checks written to her by customers she cleaned for would have.

Heather Jo Schmaltz, 43, is charged with stealing $2,640 by altering dates and amounts on checks and depositing them with her credit union via remote deposit – a feature where customers deposit checks by taking photos on their phones .

Schmaltz was also arrested and charged this summer in another case, in which she allegedly opened six fraudulent loans on behalf of clients while working at a payday lender. Schmaltz has yet to be charged in this case.

Schmaltz is presumed innocent until proven guilty or confessed.

The case of the altered checks began in the summer of 2021, when a woman who used to hire Schmaltz to clean her home showed bank records to police that the same $120 check was used to withdraw money from her account three times, sources in the affidavit. The date 1/24/20 was changed to 1/24/21 and then to 4/24/21.

Police said other parties who once hired Schmaltz to clean began reporting fraud involving the same check being cashed multiple times. In one case, a check originally written for $100 was cashed for $900, police said.

Both the bank of one of the alleged victims and the defendant’s credit union told investigators that the remote deposit feature proved problematic, according to the affidavit. One alleged victim was still awaiting reimbursement until the bank submitted a request to the Federal Reserve.

First Interstate Bank uncovered the fraudulent activity and was able to compensate one of the alleged victims, the affidavit said.

Another suspected victim, who had a bank account with Wells Fargo, showed police that a check written for $180 had been cashed two years later for $1,080. This man shared with investigators a screen shot of the electronic copy of the check on which the written amount had been overwritten and the affidavit had changed “one hundred and eighty dollars” to “one thousand and eighty dollars.”

An executive at the credit union where the money was deposited told police Schmaltz was the sole account holder and it was “nearly impossible” that anyone else deposited the checks. The account was suspended on July 28, 2021.

Police contacted Schmaltz that summer. She said she is visiting family in South Dakota and will contact the investigator at 9 a.m. on August 11, 2021. That day, an attorney called the investigator and said he advised Schmaltz not to meet with police until he could consult with the client and then set up a meeting. The investigators heard nothing back, the affidavit said.

On July 8, 2022, the manager of a payday lender and check cashing center contacted police and said that Schmaltz, an employee, stole approximately $7,500, according to the affidavit filed in the case. A returning customer had attempted to take out a loan and found he had $885 in unpaid debt from a loan the customer had not taken out, the affidavit said.

Security footage showed that Schmaltz was the only occupant of the building at the time the loan was taken out. According to police, she was seen printing a loan agreement and stealing the cash at the time. According to police, Schmaltz repeated the process four times in June 2022, sometimes leaving the redeemed amount stacked askew in the cash register, only to quickly grab it while placing the cash register in the safe, out of camera view.

Between the two cases, Schmaltz faces three counts of grand theft and 13 counts of forgery.

‘SPIRIT’ by apollo architects & associates

Settle the Tokyo one Shibuya district, ‘SPIRIT’ by Apollo Architects & Associates illustrates the residence like a private space that slowly opens onto the public sphere. This duality is illustrated by a massive exterior façade with glass on the upper half, where social programs take place, and strong concrete on the lower half, where the private chambers hid.

The entrance to ‘ESPRIT’ is next to a two-car piling garage and leads to a weight room. On the second floor, in addition to the bathroom, the children’s room and the master bedroom, a library occupies the open floor around the staircase, serving as a gathering place for the owners. An additional family room occupies the third floor, with a deeply crevassed balcony overlooking the street; one-way glass maintains privacy in this cozy in-between space filled with outdoor furniture and potted olive trees.

The crew at Apollo Architects, all functional elements – such as storage areas, kitchen, elevator, bathroom and stairwell – have been concentrated along the walls crossing “ESPRIT” in the direction of the length, which resulted in a minimalist tube-like space with natural light and ventilation flowing along the north-south axis. The roof, accessible from the top floor, has a garden with an outdoor kitchen, furniture and a sculptural pergola. Finally, connecting indoor and outdoor living spaces and surrounding them with greenery creates a serene atmosphere that is comfortably private while offering attractive views.

“Spaces like the gym, library, rooftop garden and chef’s kitchen are becoming essential in the age of working from home, with comfortable living environments and in-between areas linking indoors and outdoors. exterior increasingly in demand. Perhaps the most sought-after features of future homes will be a spirit of exhilaration that allows residents to migrate freely between indoor and outdoor spaces,” writes the Japanese studio.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ‘will address her future plans’ on Thursday, spokesperson said https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/house-speaker-nancy-pelosi-will-address-her-future-plans-on-thursday-spokesperson-said/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 11:28:00 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/house-speaker-nancy-pelosi-will-address-her-future-plans-on-thursday-spokesperson-said/



CNN

house tenant Nancy Pelosi “will address her future plans” on Thursday, her spokesperson said, at a time when the longtime Democratic leader finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads.

“Speaker Pelosi has been overwhelmed with calls from colleagues, friends and supporters. Tonight, the President monitored returns in the remaining three critical states. The President intends to address her future plans tomorrow to her colleagues. Stay tuned,” spokesperson Drew Hammill tweeted.

There are two versions of her scheduled floor speech that she took home Wednesday night, a source told CNN, and it’s unclear which version she will deliver.

Speculation over the California Democrat’s future has intensified in the aftermath of the midterm elections, with some in Washington – including members of her own party – anticipating that she may step down for a new generation of leaders to take over. the reins after the Democrats lost the House of Representatives. CNN projected Wednesday that Republicans will take control of the chamber in January, but with a lower margin than they expected.

Pelosi said in a separate statement Wednesday that House Democrats had “defied expectations” at the midpoint, but did not mention his future plans.

“This year, House Democrats have defied expectations with a stellar performance: running their races with courage, optimism and determination. In the next Congress, House Democrats will continue to play a leading role in supporting President Biden’s agenda — with strong leverage over a slim Republican majority,” she wrote.

“House Democrats are thrilled to have so many great new and returning members in the House, who will invigorate our caucus with their energy, diversity and patriotism. We salute our outgoing members for their magnificent leadership, making historic progress in health care, climate action, infrastructure, gun violence, veterans and more that can never be diminished.

The longtime Democratic leader told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” on Sunday that members of her caucus had asked him to “consider” running in the party leadership elections at the end of the month, adding: “But, again, let’s get to the elections.”

Any decision to run again, Pelosi said, “is about the family, as well as my colleagues and what we want to do is move forward in a very unified way as we move forward to prepare Congress for come “.

“Nevertheless, the stake is important because we will be in a presidential election. So my decision will again be rooted in the wishes of my family and the wishes of my caucus,” she continued. “But none of that will really be factored in until we see what the outcome of all of that is. And there are all kinds of ways to exert influence.

Pelosi had told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an interview earlier this month that the violent attack on her husband at the end of October would have an impact on his decision-making for his political future.

Paul Pelosi was attacked with a hammer at the couple’s San Francisco home by a man, authorities said. The assailant, according to court documents, was looking for the Speaker of the House.

Pelosi is a towering figure in American politics with a historic legacy of breaking glass ceilings like the first and so far the only woman be Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.

She was first speaker elected in 2007 and held that position until 2011, when Democrats lost control of the House. In 2019 she was again elected president after Democrats won the House back from Republicans.

A small but vocal faction of Democrats initially worked to derail Pelosi’s bid to become the next speaker after the 2018 midterm elections, but eventually won the votes needed to reclaim the title. Ahead of the final vote, Pelosi displayed her negotiating skills and negotiated an agreement with some of the Democrats who had lobbied to keep him from speaking. As part of the deal, Pelosi backed a proposal to enact term limits for the party’s top three leaders. The Offer 2018 was an informal agreement, however, and the caucus rules were never changed, placing time limits on his tenure.

Pelosi was first elected to the House in 1987, when she won a special election to take up a seat representing California’s 5th congressional district. Over the years, she earned a reputation as a powerful and formidable leader of House Democrats who wielded significant influence and a tight grip on her caucus members.

She has also been a fierce opponent of Republicans in Congress and the White House, and Republicans have made her a top target of their party’s critics.

When she was first elected president, Pelosi reflected on the significance of the event and what it meant for women in the United States.

“It’s a historic moment,” she said. said in a speech after accepting the speaker’s gavel. “This is a historic moment for Congress. This is a historic moment for American women.

fragment design Air Jordan 1 Sample LV Epi Leather Info https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/fragment-design-air-jordan-1-sample-lv-epi-leather-info/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 23:15:18 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/fragment-design-air-jordan-1-sample-lv-epi-leather-info/

Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragmented design has introduced the sneaker world to countless classic collaborations. Most notably, the label’s work on the Air Jordan 1 has sparked buzz around the world. Back in September, Fujiwara was spotted rocking an unreleased colorway of a fragmented version of the Air Jordan 1 Low with Travis Scott. Now an unreleased fragment design x Air Jordan 1 sample from 2014 with Louis Vuitton Epi leather touched the net.

Seemingly limited to three existing pairs and designed for Kim Jones during her tenure as creative director at Louis Vuitton, this pair is one from the archives. Its design revisits the original fragment x Air Jordan 1 High design from 2014, this time with a premium finish that includes Louis Vuitton’s Epi leather. The result is an upper that features intricate lines throughout, as well as fragment’s signature stamp on the side of the heel counter.

Given the age of these samples and the expensive nature of producing them, alongside Jones’ departure from Louis Vuitton, it’s extremely unlikely that another pair will ever be produced, let alone hit the shelves.

In other footwear news, Nike has finally officially unveiled the DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 in “Sail.”
