Clients are born in this area. The family has moved by job transfer frequently, but they bought this land before their retirement and decided to build a house. There is a park on south side of the site, so it gets stable sunlight and broad expanse to the park. On the other hand, they requested privacy because there is much traffic from the park and the street. In addition, the family wanted to enjoy view to Kanmon Bridge from and a fireworks festival at Kanmon straits the house those are local symbol.

As a title suggests, this house was controlled privacy, sunlight, and prospect by the operation of a bank and a roof.

We arranged a podium of 1.6 meters height at south and east side. We blocked a view from street by making a bank by surplus soil between the podium and boundary. The roof of first floor is bigger than top roof. By tilting the roof to inside, interior spaces take in sunlight and ensure privacy from the streets simultaneously. It provides broad view toward the park and Kanmon straits.The tilted roof is a private terrace that permits various activities.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessFilms & Architecture: “The Fifth Element”ArticlesPratt Explores the Importance of Cold War Era Pre-Fabricated Building SystemsEvent Share Save this picture!© Koichi Torimura+ 27 Share Houses “COPY” 2009 Photographs House of Bank and Roof / Masao Yahagi ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse of Bank and Roof / Masao Yahagi Architects Year: CopyHouses•山口市(Yamaguchi), Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/336318/house-of-bank-and-roof-masao-yahagi-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Projects “COPY” 2009 Year: House of Bank and Roof / Masao Yahagi Architects Area: 93 m² Area: 93 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Masao Yahagi Architects Area Area of this architecture project Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/336318/house-of-bank-and-roof-masao-yahagi-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeMasao Yahagi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHouses山口市(Yamaguchi)HousesJapanPublished on March 01, 2013Cite: “House of Bank and Roof / Masao Yahagi Architects” 01 Mar 2013.

Howard Lake | 23 July 2019 | News “I realised what the problem was but didn’t know how to solve it, how to change the organisational culture of my clients, leading to great fundraising. “I needed to find an organisational change guru to solve my fundraising problem. What I didn’t realise, when I invited Robinson Roe to co-author this book, was the very organisational changes needed to create great fundraising also change how Marketing and Programme Delivery Teams relate to Fundraising and to each other. Giving Hope – to fundraisers and the organisations they work for AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Australian fundraiser Peter Dalton has distilled his 30 years of fundraising experience in a new book, Giving Hope.The book, sub-titled ‘the journey of the for-purpose organisation and its quest for success’, is co-written by Robinson Roe, the managing director of OneTrust Australia and New Zealand.Together the authors researched over three years the work of three Australian organisations that they describe as ‘brave’: Plan International AustraliaMater FoundationOxfam Australia.Dalton’s book grew out of his experience working with many other organisations but was also influenced by the work of Professors Adrian Sargeant and Jen Shang. Their research into leadership as a contributory factor to ‘great fundraising’ mostly convinced him, but he began searching for another factor. This led to his partnership with Robinson Roe, who brought a for-profit sector perspective to these and related questions.During their research the pair noted that all three organisations kept coming up against key six organisational challenges to fundraising, and these became the focus of the book. They are:staff turnovercost ratiostied fundingthe product or hope/ misery dilemmacrowded marketpecking order challengeThe authors concluded that skilled fundraisers will often fail not because of their own experience or capabilities but because of the structure, culture and attitude to organisational learning of the charity that they work for. They highlight the need for charities to focus on organisational leadership and development, and the clear link between these, when done well of course, fundraising success and an organisation-wide improvement.Peter Dalton explains in the book: Advertisement “Even more profoundly, I discovered that the changes needed to achieve great fundraising could positively impact the entire For-Purpose Organisation and realign it to its purpose.”The title of the book, Giving Hope, is partially about the role of fundraisers and their organisations to change people’s lives. But it is also almost a dedication to the many fundraisers that Dalton came across who were working in the charity or for-purpose sector with the intention of making a positive difference, but whose abilities were frustrated by the bureaucracy of the organisation they were working for.This is what is indicated by the book’s subtitle – “The journey of the for-purpose organisation and its quest for success”. It is far from a fundraising “how-to” guide, but a guide for organisations that employ fundraisers in how they can can change and develop to make the most of that resource.Giving hope: The journey of the for-purpose organisation and its quest for success was listed earlier this year on UK Fundraising’s bookshop. You can also order it from Amazon (or browse Amazon using Bookindy to buy it from your local bookshop), or from Hive. 186 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Tagged with: leadership Management professional development About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Some hay has already been cut, which is very early.FIELD CROPS REPORTThere were 5.0 days suitable for field work during the week. Forty-six percent of the intended corn acreage has been planted compared with 2 percent last year and 10 percent for the 5-year average.

A graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography in Ventura, CA, she specializes in large format black & white photographs of the natural environment. In both her art and her spirit, she is a descendant of 19th and 20th century photographic masters like Timothy O’Sullivan, Carleton Watkins, and Ansel Adams, who captured the American scene with an unprecedented eye for nature’s beauty, serenity, and elegance.For her exhibition at SPARC Gallery, Ms. Swope chose images from her project Our Ocean’s Edge, a photographic journey into California’s Marine Protected Areas, a statewide system created in 1999 through a unique public-private partnership between conservation groups, fishermen, Native American tribes, recreationalists, beach lovers, and lawmakers. Like national parks on land, MPAs are magnificent in their splendor and wildness, providing protection for wildlife, solutions to climate change, and recreational resources for all. Swope’s hauntingly beautiful, dream-like photographs set out to capture the essence of these marine parks, seeking to increase public understanding and appreciation of California’s unique system. Her work is accompanied by original narratives by author Dwight Holing that celebrates these fragile seascapes while increasing awareness about their natural benefits and inspiring conservation action.The SPARC Gallery is located at 1121 Mission Street, South Pasadena. SPARC Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or by appointment. Please call the Chamber office before arriving.
