Split House is a renovation to a villa in the Auckland suburb of Sandringham. The project involved the design of a new addition that steps gradually through three split levels down to create an easy connection from the living spaces to the landscape. The lofty spaces are enclosed within two dynamic split hip roofs, sarked in cedar and punctuated with high-level windows. A faceted timber screen provides sun shading, while also revealing its colour as one walks across the back yard. The new addition provides a new kitchen, bathroom, living room, media room, dining room and even a purpose-designed ‘G&T nook’. Each space incorporates a large amount of bespoke built-in cabinetry in walnut and warm lighting.Save this picture!© Simon DevittSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Simon DevittBeneath the primary living spaces, a cellar and bike workshop were also incorporated. The retained heritage fabric of the original villa was also restored using international best practice heritage techniques and principles, while also increasing its performance with all new insulation, central heating, rainwater harvesting system, grey water system and electrical upgrade.Save this picture!© Simon DevittThis warm family home reflects a contemporary way of living together for a young family, while responding to the geological and topographical character of the site. Both the house and garden are larger and more usable due to the project. This is achieved by carefully relocating the carport to reduce the length of the driveway on the site and reforming the topography across the back of the site.Save this picture!© Simon DevittThe project is the first work created using the design tools generated through the creative practice PhD research of the architects. Fundamental themes developed through this research and applied in this project are: A topographic approach to planning which involves the axonometric drawing of the project at every stage of the design process. Scenographic design which sets up diagonal views and passage through orthogonal spaces, from one part of the program to another, through specifically designed frames. Design of devices that deceive the eye and reveal another optical understanding of space. By employing these ideas in the design, the Split House aims to create spaces which are both visually linked, but carefully composed as individual spaces in their own right.Save this picture!© Simon DevittProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Walden 7 / Ricardo BofillArchitecture ClassicsHouse No. 47 / DRTAN LM ArchitectSelected Projects Share New Zealand Photographs:  Simon Devitt Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2019 Architects: Pac Studio Area Area of this architecture project Houses Save this picture!© Simon Devitt+ 19Curated by Paula Pintos Share Split House / Pac Studio read more

West Limerick women support 16 Days campaign

first_imgLinkedin Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WEST Limerick women came together to show their support this week for the 16 Days Campaign to help break the silence around domestic violence.Staff of West Limerick Resources and members of the Newcastle West community joined staff of the West Limerick Primary Health Care Project for Travellers at a coffee morning as part of the 16 Days of Action Opposing Violence Against Women.Since its inception in 199, more than 5,179 groups in 187 countries have taken part in the campaign. In Ireland last year, more than 140 groups – including the West Limerick Primary Health Care Project for Travellers – took part in the National Balloon Action or organised other events as a show of support.According to Women’s Aid, one in five women in Ireland experience domestic abuse during their lifetime, and it is estimated that 213,000 women in Ireland are living with severe abuse from their boyfriends, husbands and partners.Community Health worker, Nora Harty said, “Domestic abuse affects all walks of life, women from different communities, cultures and ethnic groups. It is important that we all play our part in raising awareness about domestic abuse which is the use of physical or emotional force or the threat of physical force, including sexual violence in close adult relationships.” Facebook NewsLocal NewsWest Limerick women support 16 Days campaignBy Alan Jacques – December 11, 2014 676 Advertisement Print Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories TAGS16 days of Action Against Violence Against WomenlimerickNewcastle WestWest LimerickWest Limerick Primary Health Care Project for Travellers center_img Email Previous articleBusy night for emergency servicesNext article125 new jobs on the way Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Twitter WhatsApp Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed livelast_img read more

Most in US think cannabis has health benefits, despite lack of data – study

first_imgThe Guardian 23 July 2018Family First Comment: Well, this is interesting timing – and could have “NZ” in the title!!“She attributes the gaps between public perception and proven science largely to commercialization of the drug in several US states, which has led to advertising and media coverage. To pro-cannabis activists, the lack of traditional research lends credibility to anecdotal evidence, or allows them to point to research on animals or from pre-clinical lab studies not normally used to demonstrated a substance’s medical benefits for humans.”Sounds very familiar.www.SayNopeToDope.nzSurvey respondents believe drug can alleviate various ailments, even as scientists call out for more researchAmericans believe marijuana is helpful in treating a variety of health problems despite a lack of available evidence supporting it, a new survey found.The results, to be published in the upcoming issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine, show the most respondents believe smoking marijuana can help with pain management and then MS. Just under half believe it can relieve insomnia, anxiety and depression, ailments for which marijuana’s efficacy and safety have not been established by scientists.“They believe things that we have no data for,” said the study’s lead author, Dr Salomeh Keyhani, a professor of general internal medicine at the University of California San Francisco medical school.Of the 16,000 respondents to the online survey, 14.6% said they had used marijuana in the past year, lower than in the country at large, according to a 2017 survey.In the US, marijuana’s unique legal situation complicates efforts to study and obtain accurate information about the drug’s harms and benefits.According to the US Drug Enforcement Administration, the agency responsible for drug law enforcement, marijuana is a schedule I drug, meaning that it has serious risks and no medical benefits. Other drugs in this category include heroin and LSD.This restricted status makes it difficult for scientists to study marijuana, especially its health benefits.READ MORE: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/jul/23/cannabis-health-benefits-american-attitudes-studyAmericans’ view of Marijuana is rosy and unscientificReuters 24 July 2018Americans seem to have developed a very rosy view of marijuana that isn’t backed up by science, a new study suggests.A nationally representative online survey of 16,280 U.S. adults found that many ascribe health benefits to marijuana that haven’t been proven, researchers report in Annals of Internal Medicine.“The American public has a much more favorable point of view than is warranted by the evidence,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Salomeh Keyhani of the University of California, San Francisco. “Perhaps most concerning is that they think that it prevents health problems.”READ MORE: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-marijuana/americans-view-of-marijuana-is-rosy-and-unscientific-idUSKBN1KD2IRKeep up with family issues in NZ.
