A hip young couple living in Vancouver’s Yaletown entertainment district gets married and decides to start a family. Requiring more space than they can afford in Yaletown, but deliberately wanting to avoid the typical retreat to the suburbs, the couple purchases a run-down loft space a few blocks away in Crosstown – i.e. on the edge of Vancouver’s ‘undesirable’ Lower East Side neighborhood. With modest means and a tight timeline (baby on the way) a former after-hours party venue was converted into a home for a growing family.Save this picture!© John SinalRecommended ProductsWindowsRodecaAluminium WindowsWindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcThe existing building at 550 Beatty St was Vancouver’s first ‘New York style open plan loft’ – a 1907 warehouse that was originally retrofitted into residential open-plan lofts in 1981. In this new third iteration of the life of the building, the two-floor dwelling is programmed with 1000sf of living and entertaining ‘public’ space upstairs and 1000sf of convertible sleeping and play ‘private’ space downstairs.Save this picture!© John SinalThe lower floor plan employs a series of sliding partitions that convert the layout from a single open plan space during the day, into a two bedroom plus nursery layout at night. Save this picture!© John SinalPoints of Interest This project presents an alternative to suburban living for young families. The decisions of individual families to collectively reclaim neglected parts of the urban fabric presents a compelling model for urban revitalization and adaptive re-use. The design demonstrates a creative architectural response to the challenges of creating ‘rooms’ in generic loft spaces – which typically only have access to light and air at one end of an extremely deep floor plan.Project gallerySee allShow lessL’Institut / LUNDI et DEMIArticlesDovecote Studio / Haworth TompkinsArticlesProject locationAddress:Crosstown, Vancouver, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

UTPB to offer 24-hour laptop access

first_imgHome Local News Education UTPB to offer 24-hour laptop access Facebook Pinterest As a way to provide 24-hour laptop computer access to students, the University of Texas of the Permian Basin will unveil a laptop kiosk at the Mesa Building on campus in March.Director of Library Services Howard Marks said the kiosk will have 12 HP laptops with 14-inch monitors. The unveiling is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. March 20 on the first floor of the Mesa Building next to the registrar’s office.“I think there’s a great convenience factor (for students). They don’t even have to keep it on campus,” said Teresa Sewell, senior associate vice president for student services.Sewell said having the kiosk will be a great convenience for students. Many students may not have a laptop, but need one for a study group, or if they want to take it to their favorite study spot, they can.The laptops will be loaned out for 24 hours and cannot be renewed. Before the loan period expires, students must return the laptop to the kiosk. If the student needs more time, a different laptop may be checked out if there is another one available, information from the J. Conrad Dunagan Library said.Students must use a current UTPB ID card and be set up in the library system at the time of checkout. Those using the laptop kiosk must agree to have their picture taken by the kiosk and before the expiration of the loan period, students must return the laptop to the kiosk, information from the library said.The batteries last for eight hours and no charger is provided, Marks said. The security program on the laptop restores it back to the state it was in when it was checked out.Overdue fines will be billed at $10 a day for the laptop with a maximum fine of $100 and a $50 processing fee. When the laptop becomes 15 days overdue, it will be assumed lost and the university police will be notified. The borrower’s university account will be billed the full replacement cost, which is $1,095.The devices also have a decal on them that says “UTPB Library, so there is much less of an incentive with all those factors to run off with the device,” Marks said.No fees will be charged to the students for the laptops unless they are lost or damaged.Marks said the only password he knows of that the devices would need is the university password authentication system that logs students into Canvass, which is the learning management system for UTPB.The library has 30 laptops that it lends out for three days at a time, he added.Marks said the library faced the choice of buying more laptops or going with the kiosk, which cost about $50,000.“We thought was a good investment,” Marks said. “…This is very next generation and very techy. You’re going to be seeing this sort of configuration in libraries in the next 10, 15, 20 years. In fact, you’ll be seeing it with checkout services for books.”A study space was set up in the area of the Mesa Building near the kiosk that offers 24-hour access and study tables, chairs and couches set up.If You Go>> What: Laptop kiosk unveiling.>> When: 10:30 a.m. March 20.>> Where: First floor of the Mesa Building next to the Registrar’s Office, 4901 E.
