However, during this transition, growth in key markets has become significantly more challenging.“Nevertheless, a bigger part is competitive changes, in our view – with ‘third generation’ gaming operators and best-of-breed betting operators growing gaming share at the expense of less agile competitors.” JPJ chief confident of H2 earnings growth Finance Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Two family homes make the most of a beautiful outlook towards Wairarapa Stream in urban Christchurch. Similar in form, each dwelling maximises the allowable building envelope, creating some voluminous internal living spaces, taking full advantage of the visual connection with the landscape running along the stream. Save this picture!© Stephen GoodenoughEach home consists of plastered half gables rising up toward the centre, encapsulating the softer material palette of the rich natural cedar, which is running through the centre and out towards the stream. Save this picture!PlanThe homes are located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, in a low density residential zone, with a narrow street frontage opening out to a wide North-East facing boundary following the edge of a stream. This gave a great opportunity for both units to have a stream outlook, but also removed a large portion of the site due to planning restrictions along this edge. Save this picture!© Stephen GoodenoughEach home provides multiple living spaces to suit their individual family dynamics, with strong links to the landscaped outdoor courtyards overlooking a meandering waterway at the rear. Guest accommodation is provided on the ground level of each home with private spaces located on the first floor. Save this picture!© Stephen GoodenoughThe design was focussed on the stream. As both families sought a similar outcome, the design solution was to create two elongated dwellings, each positioned to push their outdoor courtyards towards the stream. Save this picture!© Stephen GoodenoughA solid plastered gable form was seemingly cut and stretched out toward each boundary, exposing an inner layer of vertical cedar weatherboard. What could have been a single building was then split to entice a glimpse to the natural waterway via a narrow separation. Save this picture!© Stephen GoodenoughThe dwellings are slightly offset, giving each home the ability to receive an abundance of natural light without compromising privacy to the living and private spaces. Save this picture!SectionAccess to the private spaces on the first floor is via a unique stair in each dwelling. Each a focal point when migrating from the entrance through to the living spaces. One with a wine-rack within its undercroft, the other with a subtle randomness of tread, creating a small study nook under the landing. Save this picture!© Stephen GoodenoughThe introduction of raking ceilings to both levels maximises the volume whilst giving a greater ability for light to penetrate the depths of the various spaces. This accentuates the connection with the natural landscape beyond. The living spaces, separated by sliding doors, allow each space to be adapted to suit the occasion, both having access to the expansive outdoor living area. The outdoor spaces are broken into smaller intimate spaces giving a multitude of entertaining options. This teamed up with the internal living spaces forms the strong connection with the stream.Project gallerySee allShow lessLock & Be Free / Wanna OneSelected ProjectsBeishu Gallery / Ryuichi Sasaki/Sasaki Architecture + Rieko Okumura/Atelier OSelected Projects Share Housescenter_img Area:  565 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Gleneagles Terrace / Allfrey + South ArchitectsSave this projectSaveGleneagles Terrace / Allfrey + South Architects New Zealand CopyAbout this officeAllfrey + South ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChristchurchNew ZealandPublished on June 25, 2016Cite: “Gleneagles Terrace / Allfrey + South Architects” 25 Jun 2016.

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 18 September 2015 | News American entrepreneur and founder of the Charity Defense Council Dan Pallotta will present the opening plenary at the International Fundraising Congress in the Netherlands next month.Pallotta has argued for some years that “everything the donating public has been taught about giving is dysfunctional”. He is well-known in particular for his TED Talk on the subject which has been viewed more than 3.4 million times and remains one of the 100 most-viewed TED Talks.At IFC he will challenge delegates to think about what it takes to innovate and why there is such pressure on fundraisers to do so. These are the kinds of questions that IFC organisers The Resource Alliance say “can change entire organisations”.Pallotta delivered the closing plenary at IFC four years ago.This year he says about his subject:“We’re asked to innovate without really addressing the purpose of the innovation at the outset. Is its purpose only to obey what the cutting-edge business books say we should be doing?“I wanted to take a counter-cultural look at the subject. The talk addresses themes and questions around great innovation coming from great purpose, frustration being the fuel for innovation, the power of an idea whose time has come over an idea whose time has been forced, the role of patience and presence in innovation, the power of commitment and if you’re not taking risks, the risks will take you.”Pallotta, author of ‘Uncharitable‘, shared his views on how charity staff in particular need to change their views on the nature of their organisations when he presented a plenary session at the Institute of Fundraising’s National Convention in London in 2010.If you haven’t yet seen Pallotta in action in his TED Talk, watch it now:[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″][/youtube] Advertisement Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Resource Alliance The International Fundraising Congress takes place from 20-23 October 2015.

Altheide oversees the transfer student experience and manages a variety of programs throughout the semester to engage and connect the students with each other and resources on campus. “Virtual hangouts happen every other week,” Altheide said. “It gives them the opportunity to hear that they are not alone and going through something, but that it’s possible to get involved and be successful here.”Jordan Weaver, a sophomore marketing major and transfer student from the University of San Diego, said switching universities during the pandemic “made the situation harder since the normal activities and events that would be going on are not.”The Transfer Connection Center in the North Tower of GrandMarc is now limited to just one student at a time due to social distancing guidelines. “I want to make sure there are other options out there for them,” Altheide said in light of these restrictions placed on the center.Another transfer student, Harry Denzak, said it has been harder to meet people because of the pandemic. “Socially, it’s definitely hard to meet people in a pandemic,” said Denzak, a sophomore finance major who transferred from Arizona State University. “I was lucky to already know some people from TCU, but for others, I can see a problem with connecting to other students.”Altheide said SDS will continue working and innovating to help transfer students adjust to TCU this fall. “You are part of the TCU family now,” Altheide said. “You’re not just a transfer student, you don’t just fit in that box. There are so many other things that you can do and get involved in.” Haley Cabrera read more
