A redundant farm building in Berlicum has been transformed into a large family home and an architectural office.

A small, triangular corner lot in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, was largely considered too small to accommodate a new house. For years, this lot mostly served the neighborhood as a dog walking park. Zoning setbacks, and a height limit consistent with the adjacent primarily one story bungalows, craftsman style houses and small colonials, reduced the buildable footprint and building envelope significantly. In addition, two off-street parking spaces were required. Developers struggled to provide a house that was both similar in style to neighboring houses and would fit onto the lot. Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzieTwo creative graphic designers who lived in the neighborhood viewed the lot with its inherent challenges as an opportunity to build a small, modern house that would allow them to downsize and remain in the neighborhood they loved. They purchased the lot, knowing their house would be site-responsive but unlike the neighboring houses.   Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzieThe program for the new house was relatively modest: an open living, dining and kitchen space, a first floor master bedroom suite, a workspace and a guest bedroom suite.  In the design, the zoning setbacks largely informed the volume and massing.  The house is constructed to the zoning setbacks on facing streets which aligns with adjacent houses along the lengths of both blocks.  While the house is two stories tall and built to the maximum height limit, it is consistent with the average height of the thirteen houses within the triangular block.Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzieThe house is organized around a double height space containing the dining and living space. A bridge connects the second floor office with the guest bedroom suite and helps define the dining area.  Three large skylights further animate the space, and in combination with large expanses of glass and Kalwall panels, the space is flooded with light. Finishes are kept minimal and the detailing is crisp. Spatial composition and natural light become the primary design tools.Save this picture!First Floor PlanDespite employing an architectural language dissimilar to its neighboring predecessors, the scale and height of this new house is consistent with them, and allows the house to integrate comfortably within this eclectic neighborhood.Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzieProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitects Rally to Save Moscow’s Historic Shukhov TowerArchitecture NewsBerlin Wall Memorials Prove Controversial, Fall Behind ScheduleArchitecture News Share Architects: Robert M.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 28 April 2007 | News Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Prospect research Research / statistics The Sunday Times Rich List 2007, published today, reports that the top 30 philanthropists in the UK have pledged or donated £1.2 billion to charities in the past year. According to the publication’s Giving Index, some have given eight- or nine-figure sums.Like the last two annual Rich Lists, this year’s Rich List report, published in The Sunday Times, leads with the Giving Index, an analysis of how much the wealthiest people in the UK donate to charities.The Index calculates the proportion of total wealth donated to charity in the most recent 12 months for which personal, trust, company or foundation reports are available. Advertisementcenter_img  18 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Top of the 2007 Giving Index are David and Heather Stevens who donated half of their shareholding, equivalent to £100.3 million or 87% of their £115 million wealth generated from founding the Cardiff-based Admiral insurance business. They donated it to the Waterloo Foundation which they set up this year. This should result in an annual grantmaking total of around £3-4 million, according to the Rich List.Sheila Hooper, Executive Director of Individual Giving at CAF, welcomed these examples of major gifts, saying: “While the motives may differ, what can’t be ignored is the massive impact these people are having not just on individual communities but globally. Their sense of social responsibility and huge personal commitment to their chosen causes sets the benchmark on philanthropy and is something that the UK should be celebrating.”This year’s Rich List, compiled by Philip Beresford, reports that the number of UK billionaires has risen by 14 to 68 and the wealthiest 1,000 have increased their total fortune by 20% to almost £360 billion.The printed version includes extensive analysis and useful tables, including the year’s biggest risers, the 20 faster growing fortunes, and newcomers with £135 million or more.There are also lists by sector such as the millionaires in telecoms, online, football, hotels/restaurants, hedge funds, music, wine selling, fashion, and film/TV.You can also find a list of the top donors and lenders to political parties.Goldman Sachs has produced so many millionaires that the top 10 are listed in their own table. The 100 wealthiest women are listed, as are the four women who have netted the most from divorces in the past year.Prospect researchers will also no doubt find the analysis of wealth by region particularly useful. The Rich List features the wealthiest 10 people in seven regions of the UK. Not surprisingly, 411 of the top 1,000 were born, live, or are based in or around London. Wales has 25, East Anglia 26, and the North East 16 of the top 1,000.A searchable version of the Rich List 2007 is available online from 10am tomorrow. It includes material not featured in the printed Rich List, including the world’s weathiest 100 people and a list of the richest Asians in Britain.

George F. Regas. (Image courtesy of All Saints Church)Assemblymember Chris HoldenLed by Assemblyman Chris Holden (D-Pasadena), the California Assembly on Tuesday adjourned in memory of All Saints Rector Emeritus Rev. George F. Regas,Regas, the former rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena from 1967 to 1995, died on Jan. 3. He was 90 years old.“Like many of who knew him, I was saddened by the loss of Rev. George F. Regas, but his legacy continues with the contributions he made to social change and the inspiration he provided to all of us,” said Holden, a former Pasadena mayor and city councilmember.“His bold leadership to advance civil rights, women’s ordination, LGBTQ marriage equality, and reversing the arms race laid a foundation for his successors to build upon,” Holden said.Regas was born on Oct. 1, 1930, in Knoxville, Tennessee to Greek immigrant parents. He planned to become a medical doctor, but a spiritual epiphany led him to a life in the ministry.  He completed his theological studies in Cambridge, Massachusetts before being ordained a deacon in 1956 and a priest in 1957.Regas received the call to succeed All Saints Rector John Burt when he was 36. At the time, All Saints was starting its growing impact as the largest Episcopal congregation in the western United States.“The impact of Rev. George Regas’ deep faith to advocate for practical social action continues to be felt today,” said Holden. “Every year, my office has received packets of letters originating from All Saints’ Peace and Justice Ministry, and signed by parishioners urging support for many bills relevant to social justice causes.”Regas encouraged and helped cultivate the formation of a number of fledgling organizations which over the years grew into influential local nonprofits.The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles praised Regas for his “bold leadership [that] advanced civil rights, women’s ordination, LGBTQ marriage equality, and reversing the arms race.”During his 28 years at All Saints, Regas focused on peace and justice, while also forging a strong community of faith from a diverse population.Regas worked with his friend Archbishop Desmond Tutu to establish a South Africa ministry at All Saints Church. The focus was on two areas: an exchange program with South African clergy coming to Pasadena for rest, renewal, and mutual enrichment; and organizing delegations from All Saints to travel to South Africa. The church was also an organizing place for boycotting and disinvestment from South African products.When his successor the Rev. Ed Bacon was told about Regas’ passing, Bacon called it not only an end of an era for All Saints Church but for American Christianity, according to the church’s website.During Regas’ tenure, the church started Union Station in 1970 as a total service center for homeless citizens of the San Gabriel Valley. With an annual budget of more than $2 million, the facility accommodates 80 people and remains committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness. Union Station works closely with clients with substance abuse problems to help steer them toward appropriate healing instruments.Following the Sept. 11. 2001, terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., Regas established the interfaith group Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace (ICUJP).The group played a significant role in advocating for peace and seeking to be an alternative voice to the war on terrorism.In 1986, Regis helped establish the All Saints AIDS Service Center. It eventually became a major AIDS program in the San Gabriel Valley. The Center has now expanded from its church roots by dropping the “All Saints” preface to be more inclusive and has an annual budget of over $4 million.He also supervised the creation of Young & Healthy in 1984, a pioneering program to serve uninsured and underinsured children in Pasadena. This effort has been extremely successful and has been copied in several other cities.last_img read more
