Moat’s Corner draws on an inspired vision and a commitment to an established setting. Refined to a point of tranquil precision, forming an interactive haven, with which to experience the life and energy that surrounds it. The site’s layered history began with a pioneering family, after whom Moat’s Corner was named. A gnarled cypress lined driveway is a historic cue to the first settlers on this rural property within the coastal town on Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula. Next came almost 70 years of a gardener’s cultivating and collecting, resulting in a rambling and diverse array of flora across 5 acres of the 53-acre stretch. Save this picture!© Jack LovelSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jack LovelA new phase now and the owners’ commitment to creating a home over the existing footprint set the tone for the design challenge – to respond to the integrity of its setting. The west wall and entry elevation are one of protection, intrigue, and interaction. From outside – insulated black panels spaced to a dual glass cladding guard for weather protection. But they are more appreciated at a sensory level, where on the approach they completely filled with the reflected silhouette of the established west gardens.Save this picture!© Jack LovelFrom inside – the panels take the form of bookshelves to the bedroom wing and bench top and storage to the kitchen, recessed and raised. They are framed with deep-set glass above, below and between ensuring nature’s moments are never missed. The elevated main level of the home observes the immediate gardens from a habitual perspective. Mid-canopy height, the glazed walls completely soak up the greenery that surrounds them. Raw galvanized steel appears as an offset frame to the intermittent reflective panels, while floor and roof structures adhere to the depth tolerances that the steel members prescribe.Save this picture!© Jack LovelSave this picture!North and South ElevationsSave this picture!© Jack LovelA natural stack stone fin is the grounding element below a completely cantilevered bedroom wing, projecting the roots of the design inspiration – a mid-century modernist ethos encompassing honesty to materials, structural innovation, and minimal ornamentation. The elevated band provides a look through to the landscape poolside, allowing vegetation to nestle gently under and around with minimal disturbance. Private from the gym and golf room, a self-contained guest wing with its own outlook, to the pool level and to the east, opening up to rural paddocks where cattle graze at a pedestrian pace.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe stone wall motif returns to frame the pool at one side and separate from the recreational area on the other. A raised roof structure affords ventilation and easterly light to the entry space, rumpus room, and any centralized amenities. Moat’s Corner is as much functional as it is observational. By virtue of the house design, to live in the home is to co-exist with the garden. Perched respectfully, the modernist-inspired style opens itself up to the garden at every opportunity, equally important and equally celebrated. There is not a space within the home deemed principal or secondary that does not acknowledge the life that surrounds it, reflecting nature’s mood, unpredictable but always in a synchronized sway.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessYangpu Riverfront South Section Phase II / DA Landscape + TJAD Original Design StudioSelected ProjectsCamilla & Marc Flagship Store / Akin AtelierSelected Projects Share 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917024/moats-corner-house-vibe-design-group Clipboard Australia CopyHouses•Dromana, Australia Houses Save this picture!© Jack Lovel+ 29Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects “COPY” ArchDaily Architects: Vibe Design Group Area Area of this architecture project Moat’s Corner House / Vibe Design GroupSave this projectSaveMoat’s Corner House / Vibe Design Group Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Big Ass Fans, Focus, Caesarstone, Colorbond, Designer Doorware, FRANKE, Falmec, Keller, Miele, Poliform, ROGER SELLER, Signorino, Viridian, Zip, -, Caroma, Carpetworld, Mt Angus Sandstone, Multiform Stone, +1VALVO-1 Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Area:  796 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Year:  Moat’s Corner House / Vibe Design Group Photographs:  Jack Lovel Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917024/moats-corner-house-vibe-design-group Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeVibe Design GroupOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDromanaAustraliaPublished on May 14, 2019Cite: “Moat’s Corner House / Vibe Design Group” 14 May 2019.

Microsoft calls for ‘a cloud for global good’

first_img Tagged with: cloud computing Microsoft Technology About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Melanie May | 14 October 2016 | News Microsoft calls for ‘a cloud for global good’ Microsoft is campaigning for the formation of a ‘cloud for global good’, with the publication of a book on the subject announced earlier this month.In a speech given in Dublin on 3rd October (see main image), Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that it was incumbent on companies like Microsoft, the broader tech community, and on governments to look at new technologies and ask if they are going to benefit everyone on the planet.As a result, he said, Microsoft had published a book, A Cloud for Global Good, containing ideas and policy considerations to help organisations come up with ways to use technology to help global growth in a way that is more trusted, responsible and inclusive.According to a blog post on the subject by president and chief legal officer Brad Smith, A Cloud for Global Good sets out a three-part framework that focuses on ‘creating a trusted, responsible, and inclusive cloud that will help ensure that technology benefits everyone, not just the fortunate few’.It includes 78 policy recommendations in 15 areas ranging from privacy, security, and safety to environmental sustainability, artificial intelligence, and education and jobs skills training. It also offers Microsoft’s view of the need for a broad-based approach by governments, coupled with a strong sense of shared responsibility and action by the private sector and offers suggestions about the steps governments, the tech industry, and civil society can take to build a cloud that serves the broader good.  151 total views,  1 views todaycenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9  152 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Advertisementlast_img read more

The government clearly saw this as a good way of silencing an irritating news organisation.”AIT director-general Imoni Amarere told The Punch newspaper that when his staff got to work yesterday morning they found red paint indicating the buildings to be torn down. Escorted by policemen, two bulldozers and two vehicles with FCDA markings arrived soon afterwards and began the demolition. Some employees tried to stand in the way, but they were quickly pushed aside. One of the two cameras used to film the demolition was seized by the police.Amarere said the demolition team was led by a woman who said she was acting on the orders of the federal authorities and did not have to give any explanation. The FCDA later said the AIT’s property did not accord with city planning and encroached on neighbouring property. Amarere said he had never received the least verbal or written warning that the premises were about to be torn down.Three buildings owned by AIT, including those housing its studios, were demolished.

Transit official’s videotaped berating of police ends with her resignation

first_imgWABC(NEW YORK) — A Port Authority of New York and New Jersey commissioner has resigned after she is seen berating two police officers during a traffic stop involving her daughter, newly released police video shows.Caren Turner, a lobbyist who headed the agency’s Government and Ethics committee and sat on its operations committee, can be seen on dashcam video released by the Tenafly, New Jersey, police department flashing her Port Authority commissioner’s badge and cursing at the officers.Former Gov. Chris Christie named her a commissioner last year.The incident began March 31 when police say they pulled over a Toyota for illegally tinted windows before discovering the car’s registration had expired, telling the driver they had to impound the vehicle.That’s when Turner’s daughter, a backseat passenger, called her mother to come pick them up. Turner soon arrived and approached the officers.The video, which police released Tuesday night, shows her handing officers a business card and demanding to know why the vehicle had been pulled over. The officers told Turner they were legally barred from sharing that information with her because she was neither the driver nor the owner of the car.Turner then begins to berate the officers saying at one point, “You’re a disappointment and you are just following him, so you are also a disappointment.”ABC News has been unable to reach Turner for comment but her resignation letter to N.J. Gov. Phil Murphy reportedly included that she was “pleased to have played a role in the Port Authority’s vital mission.”The bi-state Port Authority, which manages bridges, tunnels, airports, and seaports, said in a statement, “The video speaks for itself. The conduct was indefensible. The Board takes its recently adopted Code of Ethics for Commissioners extremely seriously and was preparing to form a special committee to review the findings of the Inspector General investigation and take action at this Thursday’s Board meeting. Commissioner Turner’s resignation was appropriate given her outrageous conduct.”In a tweet this morning, the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association praised the Tenafly officers for keeping their “composure despite conduct of political appointee.”Turner, who submitted her resignation last week, has not been charged.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
