Portola Valley House deals in contrasts: it’s a home for two with the flexibility to become a house for many. The design brief was to create an intimate space and a single-story home to age in place, with enough space for the couple’s children and grandchildren to visit, and to be able to entertain large groups.Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Aaron LeitzCreated with luxury hospitality in mind, the 10,000-square-foot home, Portola Valley House, in Portola Valley, California, is designed to capitalize on views of the rolling hills overlooking the valley in several directions, creating an idyllic escape. The clients are wellness-focused in their daily rituals, so, the design for their home maximizes that, with relaxing spaces specifically created for meditation. As you enter the property, you cross a small bridge, over an entry water feature. This tranquil courtyard arrival signifies a peaceful transition into the space and creates a sense of discovery. Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzIn collaboration with landscape architect Thuilot Associates and builder Ryan Associates, SB Architects created a mini compound of separate buildings, connected by lush landscaping, that reacted to the client’s needs, whilst also creating spaces that capitalized on different times of the day. The master suite is its own small structure, connected by a glass bridge to the center of the home: its living, dining, and kitchen. There’s a separate two-story structure with a small office, a guest apartment upstairs, and a garage with an art studio located on top. The home is designed to encourage outdoor circulation. The living room, kitchen, and dining area are all set to capture the dramatic 270-degree views the location offers. To emphasize the barrier-breaking between indoor and outdoor spaces, the glass walls, that look out on public areas, essentially disappear to combine with an expansive outdoor deck and pool area.Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzSB Architects planned and designed for the transient separation between the clients and their visitors. Designed as a transformational space, the clients can condense and shut-off certain areas of the house to live on a smaller platform when it’s just the two of them at home alone; and when they have guests, the glass walls in the living and dining area fold away and open to the pool and terrace, making the home ideal for entertaining. Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzSave this picture!© Aaron LeitzIt was important that there was a minimal amount of casing used throughout the detailing, the attention to detail is apparent in the execution and alignment of the floors, walls, ceiling, and millwork. A simple material palette of wood, stone, and raw steel carries throughout the house, with cedar ceilings adding warmth and texture to both interior settings and the cantilevered outdoor areas. Walls and trim are clad in Brazilian ipe hardwood, and naturally stained millwork continues throughout the house. Interior designer, Lorissa Kimm, worked with the clients to select and commission a range of furniture in soft gray tones, setting the stage for pops of color from the clients’ art collection.Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzProject gallerySee allShow lessChan House / Kay Architecture JSCSelected ProjectsTorre 61 Office Building / JJRR/ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/939592/portola-valley-house-sb-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSB ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortola ValleyOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on June 05, 2020Cite: “Portola Valley House / SB Architects” 05 Jun 2020.

The Trust is to name one of its two Oxford summer schools after Dr Drucker who died last October. The summer school from July 13-19 is for for bright students from non-professional families and from schools and areas of the country which do not send many pupils to universities. It will be named the Sutton Trust Henry Drucker Summer School. Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. 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. Oxford summer school to be named after Henry Drucker Howard Lake | 24 June 2003 | News The summer school will aim to give students a genuine taste of life at the university with an intensive programme of study in their chosen subject similar to that undertaken by first year undergraduates. The 175 students will stay at one of the colleges for the week and be looked after by students of the university, some of whom will have attended a previous summer school. Sir Peter Lampl, the Chairman of the Sutton Trust, explained: “Henry changed the face of fundraising in the UK by the success of Campaign for Oxford and by the assistance he gave to so many charities, universities, and arts organisations after he set up the consultancy, Oxford Philanthropic, in 1994. He is remembered at Edinburgh University where he taught Politics before coming to Oxford, as a tutor who gave huge encouragement to students with no family history of university education.“Henry was also very enthusiastic about promoting social entrepreneurship and I gained enormously from his experience and enthusiasm. At the Sutton Trust we consider ourselves social entrepreneurs, which means we fund programmes that we think have wide applicability and try to persuade others to take them up. The summer schools are a prime example – the government has taken them up and virtually every university in the country now runs one. “So I was enormously touched when Henry’s widow Nancy suggested that the proceeds from the Henry Drucker Memorial Fund now and in the future should be used to support Sutton Trust projects. The Oxford Summer School is the first of these projects.”

iStock/Thinkstock(TRENTON, Fla.) — Two Florida deputies were killed in the line of duty today, according to law enforcement officials.Two Gilchrist County Sheriff’s deputies were shot and killed at about 3 p.m. while they were at the Ace China restaurant in downtown Trenton — located about 50 miles west of Gainesville — Sheriff Bobby Schultz said in a statement.The suspect walked up to the restaurant and shot both of the deputies through the window, Schultz said. Deputies responding to the scene then found the suspected shooter dead outside of the business, according to the sheriff.Both deputies died of their injuries, Schultz said. The suspect is an adult male, Schultz said. There is no indication that there were multiple gunmen, he added.The deputies were identified as 30-year-old Sgt. Noel Ramirez and 25-year-old Deputy Taylor Lindsay. Ramirez, a seven-year veteran of the force, is survived by a wife and children, Schultz said. Lindsay, who’d been on the force for three years, was not married but had a girlfriend, according to the sheriff.Schultz described Ramirez and Lindsay as “the best of the best.”“They are men with integrity. They are men of loyalty,” he said. “They’re God-fearing, and they loved what they did, and we’re very proud of them.”Investigators have not determined a motive or “indications as to why this tragedy occurred,” according to the sheriff, who was on the scene throughout the afternoon and notified the deputies’ loved ones.“I do not have answers as to why this happened,” Schultz said, calling the gunman a “coward.”“The world is full of cowards, and the world’s full of heroes,” he said. “We need to highlight those heroes and what they gave.”Schultz suggested that the deputies may have been killed because law enforcement has been “demonized.”“The only thing these men were guilty of was wanting to protect you and me,” he said. “They just wanted to get something to eat, and they just wanted to do their jobs.”Schultz described Ramirez as having an “infectious smile” and said Lindsay was planning to participate in the first responder Olympics.Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he is “heartbroken” at the loss of the deputies.“It is true evil for anyone to hurt a law enforcement officer, and in Florida, we have zero tolerance for violence, especially against the police,” Scott said in a statement. “Tonight, I ask every Floridian to honor these law enforcement officers, their brothers and sisters in uniform and their families. May God bless those who work to keep our communities safe.”Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement that the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s deputies were “senselessly killed.”“The daily risk that law enforcement officers take to protect our communities is overwhelming,” Bondi said. “My deepest condolences and prayers are with their families as they mourn the devastating loss of their loved ones. May their families, friends and fellow officers find peace and comfort during this very difficult time.”The sheriff’s office tweeted that it suffered a “terrible tragedy” and asked residents to avoid the area where the deputies were killed.Law enforcement officials from neighboring countries, as well as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the state attorney’s office are assisting in the ongoing investigation, Schultz said.Further details on the shooting were not immediately available and will be released by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Schultz said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Poppy flowers will add a huge flash of color to the National Mall this Memorial Day weekend.A pop-up installation of 645,000 red flowers, encased in a translucent structure, were installed Thursday night and will adorn the southwestern side of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.The “Poppy Memorial” by the United Services Automobile Association and the National Parks Service is on display near the Lincoln, Korean War and World War II memorials to honor men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military since World War I.Each poppy flower symbolizes a life of a fallen service member and their sacrifice.“The Poppy Memorial visualizes the magnitude of that sacrifice and reminds us all of the price that was paid,” said Retired Vice Admiral John Bird, the automobile association’s senior vice president of military affairs. “We are grateful to the National Park Service for allowing us to display this inspiring and educational exhibit among the permanent monuments, as a testament to the enduring bravery of our men and women in uniform.”The abundance of poppies was inspired by the World War I poem, “In Flanders Field.”A portion of the poem reads, “In Flanders fields the poppies blow / Between the crosses, row on row, / That mark our place, and in the sky, / The larks, still bravely singing, fly, / Scarce heard amid the guns below. / We are the dead; short days ago / We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, / Loved and were loved, and now we lie / In Flanders fields.”The temporary monument stretches 133 feet long and is 8.5 feet tall. Its flowers were provided by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion Family.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
ABC News(NEW YORK) — A powerful storm developed on Wednesday bringing a historic and crippling blizzard from the Rockies into the Plains, severe weather to the South and powerful winds throughout the entire central U.S.The storm is responsible for closing interstates, stranding drivers, blowing trucks over and damaging trains. As the storm was intensifying Wednesday, a couple of preliminary record low pressures were recorded in Colorado and Kansas. It is fair to say this is one of the strongest storms to hit the High Plains in decades.The storm is bottoming out in pressure and will begin to decrease in intensity on Thursday as it moves to the north and east. However, through Thursday the storm will still bring dangerous blizzard conditions to the Plains, the next round of severe weather to the Midwest and South and strong damaging winds and possible flooding to the entire central U.S. At this time, there are no significant impacts expected on the East Coast.A large part of the country from the Rockies to the Midwest to the Ohio River Valley are seeing alerts because of this storm, including blizzard warnings, flood alerts and wind alerts. The morning radar is showing the snow shield over the Central and Northern Plains. Meanwhile, on the warmer side of the storm, thunderstorms and damaging winds are firing across parts of Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana.Additionally, strong storms have been hitting parts of Mississippi and Tennessee on Thursday morning.The precipitation is decreasing in intensity, but the threat from the wind, snow melt, ice jams and new severe weather exists in the South and Midwest.Winds over 50 mph are possible across much of the central U.S. on Thursday. Those winds will maximize across the Dakotas, but strong winds will reach Indianapolis, Chicago and St. Louis. There could be downed trees, power outages and some property damage across much of the central U.S. due to these powerful winds.Additionally, there is a new severe component to this storm in the southern U.S. A line of storms moving through eastern Texas, northwest Louisiana and southern Arkansas could bring some damaging wind gusts through the morning hours.There is an enhanced risk for severe weather on Thursday from Mississippi to Michigan, including Nashville, Louisville and Indianapolis. In the enhanced risk region there could be a few tornadoes. There could also be damaging winds and large hail across this region.Trailing thunderstorms could cause flash flooding.East Coast avoids most impactsThe storm will move into southern Canada and race off north of the United States. The storm will continue to decrease in intensity as well.There could be some locally strong wind gusts across parts of the Great Lakes into Thursday night, however, calmer and quieter weather should overtake much of the Northeast by Friday with only a couple of showers. Gusty winds should remained confined to the Great Lakes region.Much of the Northeast will see a nice spring preview on Friday with temperatures warming into the 60s. There is a chance as the cold front nears the region it could spark a few isolated gusty thunderstorms Friday late afternoon. No significant severe weather or substantial wind is expected.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Written by Tags: Baseball/Pac 12/Utah Utes FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPULLMAN, Wash. – Erick Migueles hit two home runs to lead the Utah baseball team to a 12-11 win over Washington State on Saturday afternoon, giving the Utes the series victory and closing out the season for the team.Utah took a 4-0 lead in the first inning and led by as many as five runs, but as the game continued Washington State rallied back several times in the late innings, tying the game at 9-9 in the seventh before Utah came back for the win.Migueles went 2-for-2 with four RBI, four runs scored and two walks. He finishes his season with a team-leading seven home runs. Rykker Tom, Dominic Foscalina and Matt Richardson all had two hits and two RBI on the day. Tom also homered for the Utes.Senior Josh Lapiana pitched 5 2/3 innings in his final appearance for the Utes, allowing five runs (four earned) on 11 hits with three strikeouts and two walks. Jacob Rebar allowed four runs in part of an inning while Trenton Stoltz, who tied the Utah career record with his 87th pitching appearance, earned the win after allowing two unearned runs and three hits with a strikeout.The game began on a strange note as DaShawn Keirsey Jr., struck out to lead off the game but reached first on a wild pitch. Oliver Dunn hit an RBI double for the game’s first run while Tom homered – originally called a double but called a home run on further review – to give Utah a 3-0 lead. A walk and two additional hits in the inning gave Utah another run for a 4-0 lead.Washington State got on the board with two runs in the bottom of the second but the Utes continued to pull ahead with a run in the fourth off hits from Foscalina and Shea Kramer and added two runs in the fifth on a bases-loaded single from Richardson for a 7-2 lead.The Cougars began to claw back, scoring a run in the bottom of the fifth and three in the sixth to cut Utah’s lead to 7-6. The Utes increased their lead in the top of the seventh as Migueles led off the inning with his first homer of the day. Chandler Anderson singled and stole second, moving to third on a sacrifice bunt before beating the throw home on a short fly out for a 9-6 advantage.Washington State tied the game at 9-9 in the bottom of the seventh with three runs.With one swing in the top of the eighth, Migueles hit a three-run homer to give Utah a 12-9 lead. Keirsey walked to lead off the inning and Dunn reached on an error before the big hit from Migueles.Washington State came back for two runs with the help of an error in the bottom of the eighth, cutting Utah’s lead to 12-11. In the ninth, the Cougars again threatened, putting two runners on with no outs after a single and hit batter. A wild pitch moved both runners over before Stoltz got a strikeout for the first out of the inning. An intentional walk to load the bases paid off when the Utes got a double play to end the game.Utah ends its season with a 16-39 record (8-22 Pac-12).
