Ty Pren / Feilden Fowles

first_imgArchitects: Feilden Fowles Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses ArchDaily United Kingdom Ty Pren / Feilden FowlesSave this projectSaveTy Pren / Feilden Fowles Photographs:  David Grandorge, Fergus Feilden, Edmund FowlesIntroductionSituated in the midst of the Brecon Beacons, this linear Greenfield site in the village of Trallong has a southerly aspect and fine views towards Pen Y Fan. The rich local vernacular inspired the concept of a modern ‘long house’, following the contours of the land, embedding itself in the slope of the hill and responding to the prevailing conditions. We spent two years researching and developing this design through site visits, models and prototypes. The design evolved into a crisp extrusion using skilled craftsmen to deliver a high-tech building. This period was used to procure local materials, research and to develop our Welsh vernacular adaptation. The typology of the long house leant itself to a passive solar plan, enhanced by the topography and aspect of the site. Contemporary construction techniques have delivered a thoroughly modern and high performance building, which responds to the landscape. The design was environmentally driven throughout. The passive solar design strategy uses every natural energy source available, and is supplemented with active features such as the log boiler.Save this picture!© David GrandorgeRecommended ProductsWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsCeramicsGrespaniaWall Tiles – Wabi SabiMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingWoodEGGERLaminatesProject History/ BackgroundTy Pren was first conceived in 2005 by our clients, Gavin and Vina Hogg, committed environmentalists responsible for managing the Penpont Estate (recently awarded the Forestry Commission’s ‘Wales Business and Sustainability’ award), with the desire to create a uniquely environmental building drawing strongly from the Welsh vernacular. They placed their faith in Feilden Fowles, a young design team straight out of Part 1 and embarking on our first major project. This precedent of mutual trust and good will, underpinned by a shared commitment to sustainability and green design, was shown by the entire design and construction team. This enabled the delivery of an exceptional building, small in scale but with huge ambitions. The client, acting as a construction manager, had a holistic environmental approach that facilitated the efficient delivery of a sustainable building within a tight budget, and ensured both the design and its delivery remained under continued scrutiny. The embodied energy of materials remained under constant review and often took precedent over cost.Save this picture!© David GrandorgeDesign ApproachDue to the particularly sensitive location, situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons national park, discussions on the vernacular were numerous throughout the early stages of design. Phrases like ‘sense of space’ and ‘local identity’ are abundant in the current debate regarding Welsh Architecture. Mathew Griffith’s suggested in ‘About Wales’ that ‘…the concept of ‘place’ is located at the heart of a fresh way of doing things. We need to be more effective in defining both the character of places and the value and significance that people attach to them…’ The real strength and identity of the Welsh culture is found in their simple plain chapels and vernacular buildings embedded in the countryside, gradually added to and elaborated. We were keen to take reference from these while avoiding simply reproducing an explicit version of the historic vernacular, an approach that would devalue the original. Instead we hoped to reinterpret, not necessarily by imitating historic details or using authentic materials, but through a subtle reinterpretation of familiar forms and ideas coupled with an holistic approach to environmental sustainability.Save this picture!© David GrandorgeMaterialsTy Pren translates literally as ‘House of Wood’, as timber drove the design strategy throughout. The building was clad in larch, sourced and felled from the client’s estate two miles away, and subsequently milled on site. The untreated cladding has a predicted life of 25 years; eight larch trees have been planted on the client’s estate to replace this when necessary. The removed cladding will be burnt to heat the house. Recycled welsh slates from derelict buildings on the estate wrap over the roof and down the exposed north wall. The east, south and west ‘Solar Elevations’ incorporate a more filigree larch skin. The use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) coupled with the high performing windows has resulted in a super airtight building. Secondary insulation (Thermafleece) made from a sheep’s wool blend was used to reach a U-Value of 0.15W/m2K in the walls. Internally locally sourced oak was used on the fit-out, and the entire north wall constructed from sustainably sourced birch-faced plywood. Lime based plasters and paints from Ty Mawr lime were used throughout. These natural materials are non-toxic and have a low embodied energy.Save this picture!© Fergus FeildenExteriorThe low embodied energy, flexibility and character of larch lent itself perfectly to this environmental house; particularly given that the client, an arboriculturalist, was able to source much of the timber from within his woodlands. The larch was felled just two miles away and sawn on site with a mobile sawmill. It was fitted green in order to naturally weather to a silver-grey, complementing the moorland backdrop. New trees were planted within the client’s woodland when the original cladding was felled, starting a rolling 25-year timber life cycle. The discarded cladding will then be burnt to heat the house, harnessing the last of its energy.Save this picture!© Edmund FowlesThe solar facades include deep-set window reveals that prevent excessive solar gain, while sliding shutters avoid overheating to the first floor spaces. The larch was sawn into chamfered battens, mounted 10mm apart and set out on 100mm vertical studs. This improves ventilation, produces a filigree appearance to the rain screen cladding and incorporates flush eaves details that emphasise the crisp ‘long house’ typology. Larch boards are inserted into the window reveals, covering the window frames and highlighting the punched openings. Save this picture!PlanInteriorThe plan is modernist in its simplicity, set out on a 1.2m grid, driven by the standard SIP panel and sheet material size. The continuous birch-faced ply north wall incorporates all the services and utilities, including bathrooms, stairs, pantry, storage and solar thermal store. This wall is articulated by home-grown oak studs with shadow gaps running along the datum lines of the house. The pop fit doors deliver a seamless and subtle wall, structuring the space. The stair is recessed into the depth of the back wall, emerging on the viewing gallery with direct views north, west, east and framing Pen Y Fan to the south. Welsh oak floorboards run the length of the upper gallery and throughout the lower ground floor expressing the linear design.Project gallerySee allShow lessGeorge Matsumoto Prize for North Carolina Modernist Residential Design CompetitionArticlesSingel Park Winning Proposal / LOLA + Studio KARSTArticles Share CopyHouses•Llandovery, United Kingdom “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/255206/ty-pren-feilden-fowles Clipboard 2009center_img Ty Pren / Feilden Fowles Year:  Save this picture!© David Grandorge+ 18 Share Photographs “COPY” Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/255206/ty-pren-feilden-fowles Clipboard CopyAbout this officeFeilden FowlesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodHousesLlandovery3D ModelingUnited KingdomPublished on July 19, 2012Cite: “Ty Pren / Feilden Fowles” 19 Jul 2012.

Vilsack Says Net Farm Income Projection Shows Resiliency, Productivity of Farmers

first_img SHARE Previous articleUSB Board Member Talks Up Indiana at Farm Progress ShowNext articleImmigration Reform May Be Put Off Until Next Year Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Vilsack Says Net Farm Income Projection Shows Resiliency, Productivity of Farmers By Gary Truitt – Aug 29, 2013 Other highlights of the 2013 farm income forecast include a 10-percent decline in net cash income from 2012 to 120.8-billion dollars. Net cash income measures the difference between cash expenses and the combination of commodities sold during the calendar year plus other sources of farm income. Despite the decline – the forecast would mark just the fourth time net cash income – after adjusting for inflation – has exceeded 100-billion dollars since 1973. The projected 13.1-billion dollar increase in total expenses in 2013 – to 354.2-billion dollars – continues a string of large year-to-year movements that have taken place since 2002. In nominal and inflation-adjusted dollars – 2013 production expenses are expected to be the highest on record. Farm sector assets, debt and equity are also forecast to increase in 2013. According to USDA – as in the last several years – increases in farm asset value are expected to exceed increases in farm debt – with farm real estate the main driving force. Both the debt-to-asset ratio and debt-to-equity ratio are expected to reach historic lows.center_img Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Vilsack Says Net Farm Income Projection Shows Resiliency, Productivity of Farmers SHARE USDA has forecast net farm income at 120.6-billion dollars in 2013. That’s up six-percent from 2012’s estimate of 113.8-billion. U.S. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says the year-over-year increase is a testament to the resilience and productivity of the nation’s farmers and ranchers.  After adjusting for inflation – net farm income in 2013 is expected to be the second highest since 1973.  Vilsack notes that’s coming even as agriculture has worked hard to recover from a historic drought and other disasters. Vilsack is confident farmers and ranchers will continue to show the determination and innovation that has been the hallmark of American agriculture for generations. But to help continue their strong momentum – he says producers and rural communities are counting on Congress to provide a comprehensive, long-term Food, Farm and Jobs bill that will lend certainty to Federal farm policy. Vilsack notes they are also looking for passage of a commonsense immigration reform measure to enable a stable and dependable ag workforce in the years to come.last_img read more

Man jailed for threatening to shoot Limerick detective with “9mm handgun”

He was wailing out loud, and he has instructed me to apologise on his behalf,” Mr McCarthy said.“He was a known drug taker, and he attracted the attention of the gardai, that is why his house was raided each time,” the solicitor said. Judge Marian O’Leary convicted and jailed Keane for four months, and backdated the sentence to August 22nd when he was arrested and went into custody on remand without bail. Email Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live A man who threatened to kill a Limerick-based Detective Garda with a 9mm handgun, has been jailed for four months. “He was surrounded by a myriad of gardai and he lost the plot and he now regrets it. He lashed out, in particular towards Garda Bentley,” he continued.Keane told gardai when they raised his house on the day in question: “That Bentley is a c**t, I’ll kidnap him.”Addressing the injured party, Keane said: “F**k you and (another garda). I’ll fight ye in the handball alley, ye are not the only ones able to get your hands on a 9mm.”Prosecuting Garda Sergeant Sean Moloney, Roxboro Road Garda Station, told the court gardai believed this to mean “a 9mm handgun”.Sergeant Moloney said Keane had 62 previous convictions, mostly for motoring offences and minor drugs offences.

ECRW’s border security forum sparks discussion

first_img TAGS  Twitter Previous articleMATTER OF RECORD: Dec. 20 through Jan. 3Next article012919_OHS_Permian_Girls_25 Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 ECRW’s border security forum sparks discussioncenter_img Local NewsLaw Enforcement Twitter Facebook Pinterest DPS Regional Director Orlando Alanis talks about issues concerning border security at the Ector County Republican Women monthly meeting at the Odessa Country Club. Texas law enforcement officials highlighted the importance of investing in border security Wednesday at an Ector County Republican Women meeting. Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Orlando Alanis said his agency has invested a lot of time, resources and legislative money to help secure the Texas-Mexico border. He said border security increased in 2014 after DPS was directed to launch Operation Strong Safety to combat the criminal elements exploiting the border. “The border is the responsibility of Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection, but because of understaffing in areas that becomes vulnerable,” Alanis said. “That becomes a problem for our state and nation. We went over to help our Border Patrol partners fill in gaps that they couldn’t.” Alanis said the influx of personnel led to success with crime deterrence. After the first week of the operation, there were 6,606 illegal alien apprehensions in the area of operation and by week 11 the numbers had decreased below 2,000, a 2015 DPS news release stated. He said that level of success comes at a price. Alanis said in 2015 Gov. Greg Abbott signed House Bill 11 and allocated $800 million for border security efforts. He said the agency spent $200 million in the first six months. “Until the day that we can stop all drug smuggling and human smuggling coming across our border, that’s when we can say our border is secure,” Alanis said. “It’s very expensive but necessary to keep fighting the fight along the border.” Although the Rio Grande Valley was described as the epicenter of the border security discussion, Sheriff Mike Griffis said that constructing a wall on the border could have positive impacts for Odessa. Griffis said Ector County had 51 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees during the month of December. “The cost to take care of those individuals was over $71,000 dollars,” Griffis said. “People don’t think an open border is costing us money, well it is.” The county does participate in the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, which provides funding to states and localities that incur correctional officer salary costs for incarcerating undocumented criminal aliens. While some funds are reimbursed back to the county, the amount received is determined by the number of eligible inmates and overall availability of funding. Texas Ranger Brian Burney was also a speaker at the event and shared his experience working within a special response team in the Roma and Rio Grande City area. He showed the audience images of the Roma–Ciudad Miguel Aleman International Bridge and the vast amount of land Border Patrol agents must often single-handedly monitor. “Under that bridge there’s no fence, no wall,” Burney said. “You can swim right across the river and walk right around our port of entry if we’re not paying attention.” Burney said border security is a cat-and-mouse game. He said people attempting to smuggle drugs into the country often use human diversions to attract agents to another area of the Rio Grande River. He said in areas where a levee wall is in place it can slow down those trying to cross, but what is needed most is manpower. “They’re going to try ways to get over, under, around and through,” he said. “We need to have resources in place to respond.” Alanis agreed that border security needed to be multifaceted to be successful. “A wall without technology, without resources, without aerial platforms and without anybody to respond to those trying to breach our wall is useless,” Alanis said. “It’s simply an obstacle for people to find a way around or over.” Audience members voiced opinions toward the end of the meeting that focused on human trafficking, crimes committed against children and the influence of the demand for illegal drugs on border security. ECRW patron Wallace Dunn said he grew up in an area of El Paso where he could see the Rio Grande River. He said a wall would not be the sole answer to all of the country’s border problems, but it would be a piece of the solution. WhatsApplast_img read more
