Located within a large ravine system in a North Toronto neighbourhood, this private residence not only takes advantage of the surrounding expansive natural vistas, but also creates a close relationship with its immediate environment. Designed to accommodate the integration of life with nature, the external treatment of this house explores a carefully honed language of natural materials, while the slightly curved front façade is carefully sculpted, presenting a solid entity to the street. The house opens to the back, inviting nature to interact with the everyday living of its residents. Accented in earthy tones of French limestone, wood detailing, rift-cut oak and teak windows, this private home is juxtaposed with the natural greenery of the adjacent ravine. The property is, in essence, a two-acre room enclosed by a natural wall of fir trees. Settled within the centre of the site, the two storey house is designed to enhance the views to the two pyramidal oaks and catalpa tree in the front witha silver maple and Japanese maple at the back.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn/A-FrameThe sculpted space of this private residence resonates an understanding of human comfort. Carefully carved windows penetrate the façade, allowing arrays of natural light within, while the finishes add a warm touch. Utilizing a consistent palette of limestone and walnut flooring, the interior provides a sophisticated setting for a family residence and flows easily from the front entrance to the third floor family room with views focused towards the heavily forested ravine. This residence employs two volumes with carefully choreographed openings, each addressing the public street while preserving domestic privacy. The rear of the house takes advantage of the picturesque ravine landscape by maximizing the flow of natural light into the space, and providing stunning landscape views. Save this picture!© Ben Rahn/A-FrameGreen construction practices on site were encouraged through the use of local materials, by maximizing natural light, and by minimizing damage to the existing ecosystem and habitat. The construction team established a process for the reduction of waste, reuse of materials and control of generated emissions. Various construction systems were employed in the design of this residence, including a “poured in place” concrete foundation system and structural steel framing. This framing, which uses chimneys as lateral bracing elements, allows for expansive widths while permitting light flow throughout the house, to ensure a lasting comfort and an uplifting experience. The completed design underscores the client’s desire to create an enduring generational home.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn/A-FrameProject gallerySee allShow lessDutch Pavilion for Shanghai World Expo 2010ArticlesCourtyards on Oxford / studioMASArticles Share ArchDaily Photographs “COPY” 2006 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/53239/house-ravine-residence-hariri-pontarini-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Toronto, Canada Save this picture!© Ben Rahn/A-Frame+ 16 Share Area:  1115 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Canada Ravine Residence / Hariri Pontarini Architects CopyAbout this officeHariri Pontarini ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoHousesCanadaPublished on March 20, 2010Cite: “Ravine Residence / Hariri Pontarini Architects” 20 Mar 2010.

Patrick Frazee’s ex-girlfriend takes stand at Kelsey Berreth murder trial

first_imgWoodland Park Police Department(CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo.) — A Colorado man accused of killing his fiancée in a vicious assault in her home is now on trial for her murder, and on Wednesday, he came face-to-face with his ex-girlfriend, who is now the prosecution’s star witness.Kelsey Berreth, who had a 1-year-old girl with her fiancé, Patrick Frazee, vanished on Nov. 22, 2018, which was Thanksgiving Day. The 29-year-old’s body has never been found.Frazee was arrested in December. Accused of charges including first-degree murder, he began facing trial last week. His ex-girlfriend, Krystal (Lee) Kenney, claims she was called to help clean up the alleged murder scene. She has pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with physical evidence and is awaiting sentencing once Frazee’s case concludes.Prosecutors allege the attack unfolded on Thanksgiving at Berreth’s Woodland Park, Colorado, home as the couple’s baby sat in a playpen in a back bedroom.Frazee allegedly blindfolded Berreth and had her guess the scents of different candles, according to an arrest affidavit. While Berreth was distracted, Frazee allegedly hit her with a bat, which ultimately killed her, the document said.Kenney, the ex-girlfriend, has claimed that Frazee had three prior plots for killing Berreth, including one that involved Frazee asking her to poison Berreth’s favorite Starbucks drink, a caramel macchiato, according to investigators. Kenney claimed she and Frazee discussed potential drugs that were easy to access because Kenney was a nurse, an investigator said.Kenney and Frazee dated in 2006, and after they broke up, Kenney married a man named Chad Lee. But Kenney testified Wednesday that she was still in love with Frazee when she got married.The exes later reconnected, and she testified that after meeting up in 2015, “We ended up having an affair.”In March 2016, Kenney said, she found out she was pregnant with Frazee’s child. Kenney said she ended the pregnancy, but told Frazee she had a miscarriage. She filed for divorce from Lee in May 2016.In March 2018, which was after Frazee and Berreth’s baby was born, Kenney testified that she met Frazee in Colorado and they “made love” at his home.Kenney testified that Frazee never mentioned that he had a baby and that she eventually found out from a mutual friend.Prosecutors argued in opening statements that Frazee was mentally abusing Berreth and wanted custody of their child. They presented a theory that when Berreth talked about possibly moving, Frazee panicked and enlisted the help of his former girlfriend to kill her.But the defense tried to cast doubt, arguing in opening statements that Frazee’s clothes weren’t bloody and he did not have injuries on his body.The defense has also pointed out that the victim’s body and the murder weapon have never been found.Frazee’s older brother, Sean Frazee, who is a Colorado Springs police officer, testified Tuesday that the family sat down for Thanksgiving dinner at 3 p.m.Patrick Frazee did not show up until 5 p.m. and had his and Berreth’s baby with him, Sean Frazee said on the stand. Investigators believe Patrick Frazee had already killed Berreth by the time he arrived at dinner.Berreth’s supervisor, Raymond Siebring, testified Monday for the prosecution that he received a text from the young mom’s phone the night of Thanksgiving. This text did not have an exclamation point or a smiley face, which was unusual for messages from Berreth, Siebring testified.Days later, on Nov. 25, Siebring said he received a text from Berreth’s phone to say she would be out of work the next week to see her grandmother. Siebring described that as unusual and said Berreth had never asked for a week off over text.David Felis, a Verizon store employee, testified Monday that Patrick Frazee came into the store on Dec. 4 asking questions about security of phone accounts and how information could be retrieved. Felis described Frazee as “extremely frustrated and upset.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

10 months agoArsenal boss Emery explains hooking Lacazette to booing fans

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Arsenal boss Emery explains hooking Lacazette to booing fansby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery accepted supporters’ jeers for hooking Alexandre Lacazette during victory over Fulham.Lacazette had put Arsenal two goals in front following Granit Xhaka’s opener but was substituted for Aaron Ramsey after Aboubakar Kamara had halved the deficit.The decision was booed by a large number of fans, although Ramsey put the game beyond doubt with the third.”I understand the supporters,” he said.”Tactically we thought in that moment we needed to change for more balance. Above all we know (Jean Michael) Seri is coming on and need a player close to him, not to let him play easily with the ball.”Aaron Ramsey can do that and also help us in attack and scored. The reason is this. I need to do my work. And not maybe because every supporter can have a different opinion, tactically.”But I need to do my work, Lacazette his work and he scored also. He helped us and it was a very positive reaction.” last_img read more

Ohio State softball loses weekend series against Purdue despite seasonhigh attendance

Ohio State shortstop Caitlin Conrad (11) slides into 3rd base as Purdue’s Tori Chiodo (22) covers the bag during the seventh inning of an April 13 game at Buckeye Field. Purdue defeated OSU, 5-4. Credit: Jason Morrow / Lantern photographerA season-high 1,598 fans packed themselves inside Buckeye Field to watch the Ohio State softball team try and win its third Big Ten series of the season.After splitting game one and two of its weekend series against Purdue on Friday and Saturday, the crowd was roaring and the bleachers were shaking throughout all of Sunday’s exciting rubber match.But despite a late rally by OSU (20-20, 6-6) against the Boilermakers (21-21-1, 9-3), the Buckeyes came up just short, losing the game, 5-4. OSU lost both games to Purdue by one-run margins.With junior pitcher Olivia O’Reilly in the circle for the Buckeyes in the rubber match, Purdue stormed ahead to a 5-0 lead through four and a half innings.In the bottom of the fifth, OSU redshirt-sophomore pinch-hitter Erika Leonard got the Buckeyes on the scoreboard with an RBI double. The Buckeyes continued their comeback in the next inning, as a groundout by senior second baseman Melaina Saafeld scored a run for OSU. With one runner left on base, senior pinch-hitter Leesa Gresham hit a two-run home run to cut the deficit to one heading into the final inning.“I was just thinking it was my time to come through, I’ve had chances the last few games I haven’t come through for the team when there was runners in scoring position so I knew it was my time,” Gresham said after the loss.With one out in the seventh, junior outfielder Caitlin Conrad raced around the bases for a triple after her hit smacked off the top of the wall, nearly clearing the fence. However, the Buckeyes’ next two hitters were unable to send Conrad home and OSU’s rally would come up short.It was a busy week for O’Reilly, pitching in both games of a doubleheader Wednesday against Ohio and starting all three games against the Boilermakers. In that span O’Reilly pitched 25.2 innings with three complete games, two shutouts and just six earned runs.Despite the recent heavy workload, OSU coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly said O’Reilly’s 103.1 innings pitched so far this season is on the low side for a number one pitcher at this point in the season.“I think Olivia is just putting her heart out on the field for us and I couldn’t ask for anything more,” Schoenly said. “She just wants to help anyway she can, she knows she’s not going to strike people out every time but she gives us a chance by just not letting them hit it that hard.”Saturday was a different story, as 11 hits for OSU coupled with four errors by the Boilermakers set the tone. The Buckeyes went on to win, 8-0, in five innings.Junior outfielder Taylor Watkins and sophomore outfielder Cammi Prantl led the team at the plate, going a combined 6-for-7 with three RBI and four runs scored in the win.“We attacked their pitchers early and often to keep that a short game, so I was definitely proud of that,” Schoenly said on the win after Sunday’s game.Dominant pitching from both teams was on display in game one of the series Friday. O’Reilly threw a complete game, giving up one run, four hits and four strikeouts. However, that one run would prove to be too much for OSU’s offense to overcome, as Purdue went on to win the game 1-0.OSU threatened early in the first inning with bases loaded and only one out, but a pair of swinging strikeouts sent the Buckeyes back into its dugout with nothing to show for it. Boilermaker starting pitcher Lilly Fecho had nine strikeouts and no walks in her complete-game shutout. Fecho was also the winning pitcher on Sunday, however, OSU was able to adjust and produce four runs in the loss.“I was disappointed with Friday because we didn’t make our adjustments to hit (Fecho) better,” Schoenly said after Sunday’s game. “But to show that they could come back and do what they did today against that pitcher, I thought they did a nice job of letting Friday go and coming back and attacking her again.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to hit the road Tuesday for a game against Wright State in Dayton. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. read more

Bellerin happy with win

first_imgArsenal defender Hector Bellerin admitted his disappointment with the away goal conceded, but was nevertheless happy with their commanding 4-1 win over CSKA MoscowBraces from both Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey secured the Gunners a 4-1 win in the first leg against the Russian Premier League side at the Emirates.Although they did concede a free-kick, which Aleksandr Golovin scored from with a sublime effort to briefly return the score level between the sides. Before Lacazette restored Arsenal’s advantage with a penalty.Ramsey then added a brilliant third goal, before Lacazette completed his brace after being picked out by the outstanding Mesut Ozil.Afterwards, Bellerin admitted that it was disappointing to have conceded an away goal, but believes that Arsenal can head into the second leg of their quarter-final tie against CSKA in a “positive mindset”.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It was really good. We gave away the free kick and they got the away goal and we knew that could complicate things, but we reacted to that goal and we are really happy with the score. We wish we could have kept a clean sheet but now we can go to Russia with a positive mindset and knowing that if we don’t make any mistakes, we are in the next round.” said Bellerin, according to arsenal.comThe Spaniard assisted Ramsay for the opening goal of the match and revealed that the combination worked due to countless efforts on the training field.“I spoke to Aaron and he always tells me about ‘cutbacks, cutbacks, cutbacks’ and finally we got one. I am happy that what works in training, works in a game.” revealed the right-back.While conceding that they should have scored even more on the night, Bellerin feels that they should count themselves fortunate that the score ended as 4-1 in their favour.“We are happy. we knew that Moscow had to go on the attack [in the second half] and we should have scored a few more goals I believe. In the second half we had loads of chances but we are lucky that it is 4-1 because if the score was a bit tighter then we would have regretted missing those chances. But with a three-goal lead going to Russia, we are happy.” said 23 year-old.last_img read more
