Celebrating a Client’s passion for collecting modern and video art yet supporting her needs for a functional studio and guest house, the Amoroso Studio is a truly inspired multi-functional space: part art backdrop, part guest loft, part utilitarian workroom. Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramA replacement for a termite-ridden garage behind a Craftsman home in Venice Beach, CA, the design of the 1,060 square foot studio was driven by the Client’s commitment to collecting video and film based works by emerging artists who delve into gender, identity and socio-political issues. As an executive in the entertainment industry, her support of young and evolving talent began, in part, from her time living in London near the Serpentine Gallery. When Modal Design was brought on board the Client specifically cited the Gallery and its temporary pavilions as moments of personal delight and intrigue.Save this picture!© Benny Chan/FotoworksRather than deliver a simple box containing garage and laundry space on the ground floor and a windowless projection room/guest space on the upper level, the Architect conceived a studio and art space wrapped in zinc shingles that plays off of the rooflines of neighboring homes and offers inspired spaces for projections, entertaining and visitors. Save this picture!Floor Plan 01Save this picture!Floor Plan 02The ground floor is purely utilitarian with laundry, storage and garage space. The upper floor, however, incorporates oak floors, fiberboard walls and pitched ceilings punctuated with pin lights painted entirely in white to give the space an airy feeling despite its small size. The monochromatic palette also allows the Client to project onto any surface, from floors to walls to ceiling. Only a custom console in natural wood stands in contrast, but offers needed display space for books and concealed space for projectors and other technology. Its geometry follows the shape of the windows directly behind it, unifying the piece and the space. Hidden within paneling on a wall that separates the public space from a simple bathroom is a murphy bed for guests, storage space, closets and speakers for surround sound. Save this picture!© Benny Chan/FotoworksFrom the alley the structure stands austere against an adjacent public parking lot and the harsh southwesterly sun. On the opposite side, oversized glazing allows views to and from the main house and soft light. Entry from a connector courtyard between the house and studio is via a staircase that subtly widens as it leads to the main room, opening the view and feeling as you enter the elevated space. The exterior is clad in colored zinc shingles patterned in an abstract “dazzle” configuration. Historically done to camouflage WWII warships, the studio’s three muted colors break up the scale of the building from the alley, an adjacent parking lot and nearby Venice Boulevard.  Save this picture!© Benny Chan/FotoworksProduct Description. One of the design moves was to be able to project on the ceiling of the inside of the gallery space which requires steep ceiling slopes.  This meant that on the exterior the roof would become a visible fifth façade.   Instead of introducing another material on the exterior of the house we began looking for materials that would work on the roof and the facades.  This led us to the zinc shingles and in particular VM Zinc.  VM Zinc has a product line that has various colors of zinc.  By placing the different colors of zinc on the roof and facades, we were able to break down the scale of the structure thus blending it with the surrounding structures.  Save this picture!© Benny Chan/FotoworksProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: Seoul Yeoui-Naru Ferry Terminal Design CompetitionBuilt Projects & MasterplansDisplacements People: Designing for the Global Refugee CrisisLecture Share “COPY” Year:  Energy Consultant: Amoroso Studio / Modal DesignSave this projectSaveAmoroso Studio / Modal Designcenter_img Scanlon Construction ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805462/amoroso-studio-modal-design Clipboard “COPY” Photographs Save this picture!© Benny Chan/Fotoworks+ 16 Share MMC Associates CopyHouses•Los Angeles, United States Contractors: 2016 Solargy Photographs:  Benny Chan/Fotoworks Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project United States CopyAbout this officeModal DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos AngelesUnited StatesPublished on February 16, 2017Cite: “Amoroso Studio / Modal Design” 16 Feb 2017.

California wildfires force evacuations as fierce winds fuel the blazes

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Wildfires are erupting across California, fueled by dry air, fierce winds and high temperatures.Over 190,000 California customers are in the dark Thursday as power companies preemptively cut electricity in an attempt to keep fires from starting.The Kincade wildfire began in Sonoma County in Northern California’s wine country Wednesday night.As winds reached up to 76 mph, the blaze exploded to a massive 10,000 acres overnight.The Kincade fire is 0 percent contained and the cause is under investigation.Cal Fire spokesperson Amy Head said the fire is wind driven and it’s hard for crews to keep up.“We just can’t keep ahead of it … we are almost chasing it and trying to catch up with it,” she said Thursday morning.The community of Geyserville is under mandatory orders to evacuate immediately, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office warned Thursday.In Southern California, winds are expected to be even stronger due to the higher mountain range, creating Santa Ana winds.In San Bernardino County, which is inland from Los Angeles, the Old Water fire is threatening homes as winds gust up to 50 mph.The blaze has consumed 75 acres and is 0% contained.The Old Water fire has closed schools and forced residents of about 80 homes to evacuate.A heat advisory is also in effect in Southern California with temperatures expected to reach the 90s from San Diego to Los Angeles.

Have you progressed on measuring HCM?

first_img Previous Article Next Article Have you progressed on measuring HCM?On 29 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. The Accounting for People Taskforce’s long-awaited report was published inNovember last year. It gave examples of how companies can report on humancapital to shareholders, but did not recommend exact measures. Instead, theresponsibility for devising best practice was given to businesses. This announcement was followed in May this year by draft regulations foroperating and financial reviews. They stated that by 2005, all listed companiesmust provide shareholders with an overview of their strategy and futureprospects, including some information about the company’s employees. Reporting on human capital is clearly on the agenda for listed companies andshareholders, but what is not obvious at this time is exactly how businessesshould be responding. Our joint research with Personnel Today in September 2002highlighted the need for a recognised framework by which companies can reportto their investors and enable investors to judge how one company differs fromanother. Although the Accounting for People Taskforce refrained from prescribing bestpractice, there is still a lack of clear guidance on establishing measurementand reporting methodology. There is a danger that human capital reporting willnot be consistent for some time, and that investors will not fully benefit fromdata. The most valuable information will be outcome-focused and directed atdemonstrating bottom line improvement. For example, resource allocation anddeployment will be made more efficient by tracking workforce trends by joblevel and location, years in position and retention. Productivity will beincreasingly important for corporates in a low-growth environment.Demonstrating how business is doing more with less will be significant. Businesses should be aiming to create and use data that will improvedecision making by providing the type of knowledge that enables leaders to runbusinesses better. This will help to identify ways to grow revenues, instead ofcutting costs. With Personnel Today, we are running our research again this summer to findout how far businesses have progressed. Although we expect to find improvement– some businesses will have made huge progress – it will be clear that othersstill have a long way to go. last_img read more
