The Crossing is a private home built on the original cattle tablelands overlooking Pakiri Beach.The house fuses together a limited material palette of concrete, blue steel, and oiled cedar into a bold and incredibly dynamic space, allowing the owner (a professional writer) genuine flexibility to entertain, while acknowledging the need for the relative solitude of a working studio space.Save this picture!PlansThe form of the house is immediately and boldly sculptural; at once reflecting the traditional rural steel farm buildings of the area, and the dramatic local landscape. The sophisticated position of the hilltop home is a reflection of its ability to capture sun and views.The design consists of two primary axis; a long north-south facing corridor (extended by a 10m concrete ‘walkway’ which brings you to the entrance door) and the other, which intersects the house east to west. This is an important intersection which reinforces the name ‘The Crossing’, but also divides the house into ‘dark’ bedroom and ‘light’ living spaces. This was an important design feature brought to life even further by working with a lighting designer from concept stage.Save this picture!© Simon DevittSave this picture!SectionA staircase leads to a studio space, which nests above the kitchen below – and frames a view of Pakiri Beach.The front of the house is flexible and consists of large sliding doors, which open the space to indoor/outdoor living and a concrete terrace, designed to compliment and acknowledge the form of the roofline above.Save this picture!© Simon DevittSave this picture!North ElevationSave this picture!South ElevationThe skin of the house is terne coated copper which ‘wraps’ the walls and roof of the house in a continual fold. By contrast, the interior largely consists of oiled cedar panels, which contrast warmly with the black interior and concrete floors. Steel is incorporated in the panels of the studio and the uniquely sculptural kitchen bench – both locally made.Save this picture!© Simon DevittProject gallerySee allShow lessYarraville Garden House / Guild ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMoMA Announces a Major Retrospective to Commemorate Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th BirthdayArchitecture News Share New Zealand Architects: Studio2 Architects Area Area of this architecture project Projects 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/789081/the-crossing-studio2-architects Clipboard The Crossing / Studio2 ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThe Crossing / Studio2 Architects ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/789081/the-crossing-studio2-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Pakiri, New Zealandlast_img read more

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. The Avon Foundation for Women has awarded a $20,000 one-year grant to Foothill Family to provide women and children, victims of domestic violence and/or abuse with case management services and therapeutic counseling. Foothill Family’s work in helping survivors recover from trauma and move toward self-sufficiency is just one of the many ways that the organization builds brighter futures for children and families in our communities.Foothill Family is one of 32 organizations across the United States this year to be granted funds for direct services through the Avon Foundation for Women Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program. This is the seventh year that The Avon Foundation for Women has helped to support Foothill’s work on this critical issue; however, the foundation and Avon Products, Inc. have shown philanthropic support to Foothill Family for more than 11 years.“Foothill Family strives to empower community members to overcome challenges and thrive in their daily lives,” said Steve Allen, Foothill Family Chief Executive Officer. “We greatly appreciate the Avon Foundation for Women’s continued support of our domestic violence program, which focuses on prevention as well as treatment. Because domestic violence continues to be an epidemic affecting individuals, families, and generations regardless of economic status, race, nationality, age, and gender, it is a crucial issue that requires attention and investment.”The domestic violence program at Foothill Family supports victims in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, Glendale, and Burbank and delivers essential services designed to help clients through emotional trauma and depression while providing assistance and resources to navigate barriers to success such as lack of safe housing, affordable child care, education, or work experience. Foothill works with clients to overcome the cycle of violence, improve parenting skills, access needed services for themselves and their children, become appropriately assertive, cultivate a supportive peer group with other clients, and identify and take steps to achieve gainful employment.“The Avon Foundation for Women is committed to helping end the cycle of domestic violence and takes pride in supporting Foothill Family’s work to help domestic violence victims in the greater Los Angeles area,” said Christine Jaworsky, Program Director of Avon’s Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program. “It is through initiatives like Foothill’s that we can work to break the cycle of domestic violence once and for all, and help ensure safety for victims and their families.”Globally, at least one-in-three women has experienced some form of partner violence or abuse during her lifetime. Although research shows most victims are women, men can also be domestic violence victims.Programs such as Foothill Family’s help ensure that all victims have access to services that will help them rebuild their lives and break the cycle of domestic violence for themselves, their families, and future generations.About Foothill FamilyFoothill Family was founded in 1926 and provides a range of community-based mental health and social services to at-risk populations in Southern California. Its mission, to build brighter futures for children and families, has helped Foothill Family earn a reputation for providing high-quality services aimed at empowering families and strengthening communities. Programs include mental health and school-based counseling for children, child abuse prevention and treatment, domestic violence prevention and treatment, early child development programs, services for pregnant teens and their babies, family counseling, and youth development. Last year, more than 23,000 children and their families benefited from Foothill Family’s life-changing programs.

Camille Schrier of Virginia crowned Miss America, wows judges with science experiment

first_imgJadeThaiCatwalk/iStock(UNCASVILLE, Conn.) — Miss Virginia Camille Schrier took home the title of Miss America 2020 Thursday night, beating out 51 other women with a unique science experiment in the talent portion — something that has never been done on the show before.Schrier, who is currently studying to obtain a Doctor of Pharmacy degree, wowed the judges when she combined hydrogen peroxide with potassium iodide and water. The results were out of this world when the mixture exploded into a large foamy substance behind her on stage.With her passion for science and her goal of becoming a pharmacist, the 24-year-old has worked to inform others about drug safety and abuse prevention with an initiative she calls “Mind Your Meds.”“We need to show that Miss America can be a scientist and a scientist can be Miss America,” she said during the competition.The pageant — dubbed Miss America 2.0 — was held in Uncasville, Conn., and candidates were critiqued and judged on talent, interview skills and public speaking.Victoria Hill, Miss Georgia, came in as runner up in the competition. She put a spotlight on foster care and impressed the judges, Kelly Rowland, Karamo Brown of Queer Eye and actress Lauren Ash of Superstore, with an opera performance.As the winner of Miss America, Schrier has earned scholarship money and will represent the mission of the Miss America Organization program to the public as well as advance the goals and objectives of the organization along with her own initiatives.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
