Located on the Kromme River estuary, that flows into the warm Indian ocean, the house has been conceptualized as a summer retreat for a family living in London. The long and narrow, 3330m2 site is positioned in an older part of the village, stretching from the street to the river. Flanked on both sides by neighboring properties, the site faces north with a south entry approach. The adjoining house, set among established trees and indigenous vegetation is one of the original St Francis Bay bungalows. The vernacular, which is a combination of fisherman’s cottage and Cape farm architecture, provided a reference point for the project. Architectural guidelines exist for the village, with white rendered walls and pitched roofs in either thatch or slate being a requirement. In addition environmental regulations prevent development within 20 meters from the river. Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerThe original house was positioned at the rear of the site, devoid of the endemic landscape and was demolished to make way for a fresh new approach. The environment is idyllic, but conditions can change unexpectedly, with the prevailing winds from the east and west being strong design determinants. The overriding design concept was to use architectural elements to make the connection from the land to the water. Linear, finger-like forms extend from the street guiding one from the approach through the house, to the living areas and external terraces beyond. In contrast to the linearity of the forms, three large sculptural chimneys anchor the house and provide the verticality required to balance the composition. Magnificent vistas of the river are viewed over the indigenous garden, which extends down to merge with the river grasses on the beach.Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerThe house is positioned at the rear of the site, with a vehicular graveled courtyard enclosed behind low walls facing the street. The thatch roofs and curved bagged walls are contemporary in a manner yet reminiscent of traditional Cape farm architecture. The buildings are single storey and provide an unimposing, intimate scale on approach. The simplicity and purity of form are inviting and continue throughout, making up the structure that informs the planning layout of the house. These “simple barn-like forms are placed in a series of parallel and perpendicular configurations to create “little werfs”, the local term for farm courtyards. These in turn create varying degrees of shelter and privacy, and integrate indoor and outdoor space, while the longitudinal barns telescope your eye towards the view. The “barns” and the courtyards between them ensure sheltered outdoor spaces, irrespective of the wind direction.Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerEach barn serves a different function: the first is a service wing housing a garage and kitchen, two are for outdoor entertainment, one for the living and dining spaces and two are for sleeping. The courtyards have been planted with indigenous grasses, shrubs, and trees to reintroduce the presence of the nearby coastal thicket. The eventual outcome is to create a canopy and greenery, where the forest is working its way through the house, and the house is working its way through the forest.Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerWhere the house is required to open to outside, the large thatched roofs are supported on a series of over-scaled eucalyptus columns, reminiscent of pavilions. These pavilions can open entirely by sliding the glass doors and timber shutters aside into concealed cavities. When all are open, the structures feel like a series of thatched pavilions that allow the seamless free flow of movement from inside to out. Also, it allows for the uninterrupted transition from one courtyard through the house, to the next. This interrelationship is carried throughout the house, including service areas and bathrooms that open to private planted courtyards, illuminated by natural light.Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerThe buildings are open and relaxed and finished with a palette of natural materials, providing a neutral backdrop for colourful furnishing and brass detailing in contrast. The consistent use of a limited pallet of materials create a cohesive interior, instilling a sense of light and calm. The roof is a complex piece of engineering, robust and organic. Constructed from poplar beams, the structure is reminiscent of the inverted hull of a boat. In contrast, the traditional solid gables are replaced by slatted, aluminum screens, allowing sunlight to filter through during the day, while becoming transparent and gauze-like, illuminating the interior structure at night. Sliding timber shutters screen the rooms, providing privacy and shade and containment when required.Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerSave this picture!Sections A and ESave this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerThe children’s bedrooms open up onto the entrance courtyard providing a safe and sheltered area in which to play. Two of the bedrooms have sleep lofts as does the playroom, and along with the window seats in the bedrooms, provide guests with additional sleeping space. Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerFrom the elevated living room terrace, generous outdoor sitting spaces open to the view. Flanked on one end by the main bedroom wing and the 18m swimming pool on the other, their linearity accentuates the perspective, opening up the view to the river. The pool with its long, low, white walls is reminiscent of an old reservoir while relating to the of the curve’s house. Indigenous dune forest vegetation was reinstated, the gray tones reinforcing the colours that predominate in the house. From the poolside deck, timber boardwalks meander through the garden, leading down to a little beach in front of the river with a jetty – it’s here the family spend their holiday, playing on the river.Save this picture!© Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert PeplerProject gallerySee allShow lessColour Hostel Renovation / AML Design studioSelected ProjectsYishan Pinnacle Flagship Store / ARCity OfficeSelected Projects Share Year:  River House F / Bert Pepler ArchitectsSave this projectSaveRiver House F / Bert Pepler Architects River House F / Bert Pepler Architects Photographs:  Greg Cox/ Bureaux, Bert Pepler Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945113/river-house-f-bert-pepler-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBert Pepler ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsOn FacebookSaint Francis BaySouth AfricaPublished on August 05, 2020Cite: “River House F / Bert Pepler Architects” 05 Aug 2020.

PROUD TO SERVE: Shiver reflects on D-Day offensive

first_img You Might Like Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Like many young boys of his time, James Shiver dreamed of flying an airplane. But he knew it was only dream … until the start of the war in Europe in September 1939.Shiver had two brothers who were serving their country so, instead of going to school the morning of his beginning the 12th grade, he ran off, fibbed about his age and joined the service.                 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Shiver served with the 2nd Armored Division under Patton. His division went ashore on Omaha Beach on D-Day + 1.  Shiver said he prayed all the way that he would just make it to the beach. The M-4 Sherman tank that Shiver piloted was among those in the U.S. armored division that were deemed death traps.In the heat of battle, it was said that it was as dangerous inside a M-4 Sherman tank as it was outside. Shiver said the German tanks, the Panther King and the Tiger, were much larger than the M-4 Shermans. The Allies had to fight their way across Normandy and it took six weeks to gain control.“We had to fight our way through the thick, heavy hedgerows,” Shiver said. “The Germans hid their tanks in haystacks. One stack would be hay and another would be a tank. We would come out of the hedgerows and our tanks would be like sitting ducks.”Shiver said he saw many American tanks knocked out. Once, his tank was hit and one crew member was killed, maybe two, he didn’t know for sure.When his tank was disabled, Shiver hid one night in a school building. During the night, he heard the clanging of German soldiers’ boots on the cobblestone streets. Fear was a daily companion.Shiver said he was among the fortunate and blessed to make it home. He was certain that it was, in part, because he had a praying father, Willie Shiver.Now, in his 90s, Shiver’s memory is not as exacting as it once was. But he remembers clearly the pride of service that he experienced. He is just as committed to country as he was that early morning in 1940 when he decided he had something more important than school that day. So, he joined the United States Armay without any regrets – ever.

NBA free agency: Timofey Mozgov’s sold on Luke Walton’s promise of a significant role

first_imgThe giddiness sounded clear, even through Timofey Mozgov’s thick Russian accent. The reasons seemed plenty. Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak contacted Mozgov’s representatives a minute after the free agency period began last week. The Lakers soon presented to Mozgov a four-year, $64 million offer, an enormous contract that both illustrated a mix of the team’s dire needs at center and a spiking salary cap. Mozgov maintained those elements alone, however, did not convince him to wear a purple and gold uniform soon. Nor did those factors prompt him to sound the most excited as he spoke Monday on the phone. Instead, Mozgov traced back to a five-minute conversation he had with Lakers coach Luke Walton shortly after free agency began that leaves Mozgov excited. “He said I’m going to play a lot,” Mozgov told Southern California News Group. “I really like it. The only thing in the world I want to do is be with my family and play basketball. Those are the two things that are most important for me.” “He said I’m going to play a lot. I really like it,” Mozgov said. “He said I’m going to be a big part of the team on the offensive and defensive end.” That hardly fit Mozgov’s role last season with the Cavaliers.While LeBron James and Kyrie Irving led Cleveland to an NBA championship in seven games over the Golden State Warriors, Mozgov played a combined 25 minutes through all of those contests. He also only logged 17.5 minutes during the regular season amid year-long complications with his right knee after having surgery last summer. That contributed to Mozgov playing a limited role after averaging a more stellar 10.6 points on 59 percent shooting and 6.9 rebounds in the 2014-15 campaign with Cleveland. The six-year NBA veteran has career averages of 6.9 points on a 53.9 percent clip and 5.0 rebounds per game. “It was not easy. I think the one thing in my mind that I always say to myself, ‘Whatever is going on, good or bad, you have to take it as an experience for the rest of your life,’” Mozgov said. “When you don’t play, you have to stay ready, especially in a playoff situation. When coach pulls you in the game, you have no right to complain to the guys.”So even if he argued the Cavaliers were the “best team ever made (on) the planet” on the same day Kevin Durant committed to the Warriors, Mozgov found a larger role on a rebuilding team more enticing than having a marginal influence on a championship contending team.“I was proud to be a part of the team, but I want to play,” Mozgov said. “It was a hard decision. Of course you want to stay on a team that you know will be one of the teams that fights for a championship. But in my personal opinion, I have to take a bigger step and move forward.” Much of that could depend on Mozgov’s on health, though he stressed he does not need to have any offseason procedures this summer. “I’m perfect, finally,” Mozgov said. “It took me longer than I thought. But I’m perfect.” Mozgov sounded less certain on how quickly the Lakers’ young roster will develop. “I’m not going to lie to you; I haven’t seen them play in a lot of games,” Mozgov said. “I’m sure they’re talented. But sometimes it takes one season or two seasons to understand yourself and what you have to do to be where you want to be. But I’m sure they’re all talented. They just have to work every day. I think we’re going to be good.” Or how much the 29-year-old Mozgov can elevate the Lakers with dependable rim protection, a pick-and-roll option for D’Angelo Russell and possible mentorship. “You have to step on the court and improve the game with energy or defense or whatever you can do on the court. It’s not easy to do. I don’t think everybody can do it,” Mozgov said. “I’m not the best veteran in the world. But I know what’s going on with basketball. So hopefully that helps the other guys.”Instead, Mozgov sounded secure on two other things.One, Mozgov strongly dismissed whether Blake Griffin’s well-documented dunk over him six years ago would add extra spice to the Lakers-Clippers matchups.“Everybody talks about that moment, but I moved forward,” Mozgov said. “You take experience from that. You never want that to happen again. But you have to move forward.”Second, Mozgov continuously focused on his conversation with Walton that he called “really really good.” So good that Mozgov promised something about Walton after he delivered his own promise about playing time.“I truly believe he’s going to be a great coach,” Mozgov said of Walton. “I’m looking forward toward working with him.” Mozgov will officially check off both boxes once he signs his contract when the NBA moratorium ends on Thursday. He has a coach who has assured him of a starting center position after averaging only 6.3 points on 56.6 percent shooting and 4.4 rebounds last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 7-foot-1 Russian center also secured a lucrative contract to support his family, causing him to joke he will spend plenty of time with them this summer in Los Angeles “sitting on the beach and drinking a piña colada.”Mozgov sounded aware of the criticism surrounding his contract. Then he quickly laughed it off for a few reasons. One, he argued that contract partly stemmed from the NBA’s new television deal with ABC/ESPN and Turner through 2025 that is worth $2.67 billion per year. Two, the Lakers willingly paid Mozgov that money since they needed a center after parting ways with Roy Hibbert, who posted a career-low in points (5.9) and anchoring a defense that ranked 27th in points allowed (106.8).“I can’t lie to you; I like it,” Mozgov said, chuckling. “This is the way the NBA is doing business. Players are happy with the money going up. But it’s not just about the players getting the money. The owners and the players association are getting money. Everybody’s happy.”So with his representatives advising him to stay prepared in case a team approaches him with an immediate offer, it did not take long for Mozgov to agree to a deal with the Lakers nearly as quickly as Kobe Bryant shooting the ball. Money aside, Mozgov waxed nostalgia about primarily watching the Chicago Bulls and Lakers in his native Russia. Mozgov then circled back to Walton again. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
