GiG wins approval for New Jersey launch

The firm has been granted a transactional waiver by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, certifying its GIG Core platform as compliant with rules and regulations in the state. GiG said that when the state’s obligatory and comprehensive process has been completed, it will seek to obtain a Casino Service Industry Enterprise Licence.

Robin Reed, chief executive of GiG, said: “We are delighted to now be going live with Hard Rock in New Jersey, a first step in our mutually ambitious plans to take market share in the regulated online gambling market in the US.” Earlier this week, Hard Rock also announced that it had agreed a deal for Global Payments Gaming Solutions to provide online ACH account funding for its new online casino.Related article: Hard Rock pens omni-channel deal with Global Payments GiG wins approval for New Jersey launch AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 29th June 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Tech & innovationcenter_img Companies: GiG Casino & games Tags: Online Gambling Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has secured approval to offer a real-money online casino platform solution to operators in the US state of New Jersey Email Addresslast_img read more

With £3,000 to invest in the stock market rally, I think these UK small-cap shares will keep rising in 2021

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Paul Summers Momentum is a powerful force in investing. Once a share price gathers pace, it could go far higher than one might expect. I suspect this will be the case with many UK small-cap shares in 2021 as the stock market rally continues. I’ve been looking at three examples I think are likely to continue making good money for investors like me in the months ahead. I already own one of them and have the others on my watchlist.Momentum share for a stock market rallyHarry Potter publisher Bloomsbury (LSE: BMY) enjoyed a magical 2020 thanks to more of us picking up a book or 10 during lockdowns. Back in October, the firm revealed a 10% rise in revenue (to £78.3m) and 131% jump in pre-tax profit (to £3m) over the six months to the end of August. Since we’re now into our third national lockdown, I can see this performance lasting a while longer.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Bloomsbury’s financial year ends next month. However, it probably won’t be until May that the company reveals how it’s performed over the last few months. That said, this does allow me time to take a position before the news is announced. Of course, whether the company can sustain recent momentum once the stock market rally has run its course isn’t a given. But I’m encouraged by it having plenty of cash on its balance sheet and reinstating dividends.Rocketing revenueWith its share price soaring in recent months, my decision to buy a stake in laser-guided equipment manufacturer Somero Enterprises (LSE: SOM) in 2020 was one of my better calls.Somero expects to post revenue of roughly $88m for the full year thanks to excellent trading in North America. This is far more than the $80m analysts were predicting. Adjusted earnings (EBITDA) of about $26m will also be “significantly ahead” of the $21m previously expected.I can see Somero carrying this form into 2021, even if further planned investment in staff will temporarily impact profits. Demand for its products in the US looks likely to be sustained based on feedback the company has received. A revival of business in Europe and other markets once Covid-19 is conquered is also possible.Factor-in a special dividend from cash-rich Somero and a forecast P/E of 14 for FY21 and it looks attractive to me in a stock market rally.Looking goodBath-based eyewear maker Inspecs (LSE: SPEC) is another small-cap stock showing positive momentum.It wasn’t always this way. The shares fell 25% not long after their debut on the market last February. After recovering over the summer, they fell again in September and October, highlighting the volatility of small-cap shares that investors need to be aware of.More recently, the performance has been much better. The shares have almost doubled in value since November. That’s quite a result considering we’ve heard very little from Inspecs over this period. No matter. I think the best stocks for me to own are often the ones not making headlines.On 28 times forecast FY21 earnings, Inspecs looks expensive. But I think the PEG (price-to-earnings ratio/earnings growth) ratio of 1.6 is worth paying attention to. This implies the shares may actually be trading at a fair-rather-than-excessive valuation given the company’s potential. Add in its global reach and non-cyclical market (those who need glasses get glasses) and I think the £350m cap becomes an increasingly enticing investment proposition.

God bless you all.Phoebe LeviECS Province,Juba South Sudan. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Lise Cujar says: Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI [Episcopal News Service — Canterbury, England] One-time oil executive and former Bishop of Durham Justin Welby was formally enthroned (twice) as the 105th archbishop of Canterbury on March 21 during a two-hour ceremony that blended an ancient liturgy with a few modern twists.With Welby’s enthronement, he joins a succession spanning more than 1,400 years, dating back to 597 AD when St. Augustine became the first archbishop of Canterbury.Anglican Communion and ecumenical leaders, members of the British royal family, including His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, and senior representatives of the U.K. government, including Prime Minister David Cameron, were among the 2000 invited guests attending the service at Canterbury Cathedral in England’s southeastern county of Kent.The U.S.-based Episcopal Church was represented by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, as one of the Anglican Communion’s 38 primates, and her canon, the Rev. Chuck Robertson. Bishops Shannon Johnston of Virginia, Ian Douglas of Connecticut and Andy Doyle of Texas also participated in the enthronement, or inauguration. Jefferts Schori noted during an ENS interview that Welby had attended the Episcopal Church’s General Convention in 2009 and House of Bishops meeting in March 2012 and that people who spoke with him appreciated his good humor and depth of spirit.Rob Radtke attended the service as president of Episcopal Relief & Development, as did heads of other Anglican Communion relief agencies.The service began at 3 p.m. local time (11 a.m. EST) when the Very Rev. Robert Willis, dean of Canterbury Cathedral, read out a letter from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, supreme governor of the Church of England, authorizing the dean and cathedral representatives to go to the church’s West Door to greet the archbishop.In a famous tradition, the archbishop banged on the West Door three times with his pastoral staff, and the dean opened the door to welcome him.The archbishop was then greeted by Evangeline Kanagasooriam, a young member of the Anglican Communion and student at The King’s School in Canterbury, who asked Welby questions about his purpose for seeking admission to the cathedral.Archbishop of York John Sentamu introduced the Declaration of Assent, used at the beginning of every new ordained ministry in the Church of England, during which Welby affirmed his belief in the faith “which is revealed in the Holy Scriptures and set forth in the catholic creeds…”In one of the service’s innovative touches, Welby then signed an ecumenical covenant with two of the five co-presidents of Churches Together in England: His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain and the Rev. Michael Heaney, moderator of the Free Churches Group.Welby, 57, swore an Oath of Faithfulness on the historic Canterbury Gospels (believed to have been written in Italy in the 5th or 6th century and presented by Pope Gregory the Great to St. Augustine in 597 AD) and made an Act of Commitment to strive for the visible unity of Christ’s Church.The archbishop was then enthroned in two seats – the Diocesan Throne and the Chair of St. Augustine. The two enthronements formalized Welby’s multi-faceted role as bishop of the Diocese of Canterbury, Primate of All England and spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion. The cathedral dean installed him as Primate of All England but, perhaps most significantly, the Ven. Sheila Anne Watson, archdeacon of Canterbury, became the first woman to install an archbishop as bishop of the See of Canterbury.Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi of Burundi blessed the newly installed archbishop of Canterbury in French and Welby responded with an Act of Commitment to the Anglican Communion.Following the greeting of peace, a Ghanaian song, Gbeh Kpa Kpa Ba (A New Beginning), was performed as African dancers led the archbishop to the Nave pulpit to read the Gospel of Matthew 14: 22-3, in which Christ tells Peter to leave his storm-rocked boat and come across the water to him, before returning to preach from the Chair of St. Augustine.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby processes to Canterbury Cathedral for his inauguration. ENS photo/Matthew Davies“[T]he church transforms society when it takes the risks of renewal in prayer, of reconciliation. And of confident declaration of the good news of Jesus Christ,” he said during his sermon. “There is every possible reason for optimism about the future of Christian faith in our world and in this country. Optimism does not come from us, but because to us and to all people Jesus comes and says ‘Take heart, it is I, do not be afraid.’”“We are called to step out of the comfort of our own traditions and places, and go into the waves, reaching for the hand of Christ. Let us provoke each other to heed the call of Christ, to be clear in our declaration of Christ, committed in prayer to Christ, and we will see a world transformed.”The full text of this sermon is here.Jefferts Schori described Welby’s sermon as moving.“The archbishop preached about the Christian grounding of society … He also spoke about reconciliation … That’s what Jesus was about – his incarnation, life ministry, death and resurrection is about reconciliation,” she told ENS following the service. “It is something of which the world continues to be in great need. It is really what all people of faith are called to be and do in this world.”Another innovation in the ancient ceremony followed the sermon as five Anglicans each placed on the High Altar a symbol representing different regions of the communion. Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani brought a cross made of Jerusalem olive wood. Adele Finney, executive director of the Anglican Church of Canada’s Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund, brought blessed water from various parts of the Americas which she mixed at the altar as a symbol of unity. Real Kewasis, a Mother’s Union International trustee from Kenya, brought traditional vessels for bread and water or milk. The Rev. Peter Koon, provincial secretary of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, placed a pound of rice on the altar. The Rev. Desiré Mukanirwa, from the Anglican Church in the Democratic Republic of Congo, brought a wooden carving showing a volcano and people working to represent the desire for peace.“The sense of the breadth and depth and diversity of the Anglican Communion was right through the whole service — in its music, the dancing, the salutations brought from the corners of the world. It was very much a communion service,” said Douglas, a member of the Anglican Communion Standing Committee and the Episcopal Church’s episcopal representative on the Anglican Consultative Council.“Archbishop Justin’s key commitments were very well represented in the service, specifically in the emphasis on reconciliation, and the fact that in Jesus we can all be reconciled, and that the gift of diversity that we all embody in the many different races and traditions and cultures from which we come as the body of Christ is a gift that we can give to the world.”Doyle, who is a member of the board of directors for the Compass Rose Society, an association that supports the programs and ministries of the archbishop of Canterbury, agreed. “It really was a service of the communion,” he said. “It was very clear that he has an eye to the greater church and its mission and ministry and hope for health and vitality.”Robertson said that “today was a day of hope, of reaching out to one another,” adding that Welby “did a beautiful job of helping us to think about what we can do together … and that gives me great hope for the future.”For Episcopal Relief & Development’s Radtke, what struck him most about the service “was how personal it was to Archbishop Justin.”Radtke said that his invitation to the enthronement, along with his relief and development counterparts in Australia and Canada, “shows the commitment that the archbishop and Lambeth Palace have to … alleviating global poverty, which is going to be a critically important focus for all of our agencies.”Newly inaugurated Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby offers the congregation the peace of Christ. Photo/ ACNS courtesy of the Press AssociationThe cathedral choir performed Benjamin Britten’s Te Deum in C, and a new composition, Listen, Listen, O My Child, by contemporary composer Michael Berkeley, commissioned for the service by the archbishop’s mother and stepfather.Berkeley’s composition is set to the opening words of the Rule of St. Benedict, chosen for the saint’s significance on this chosen day (March 21 is the feast day of St. Benedict), for the cathedral (a thousand years ago, it was a Benedictine monastery), and for Welby (who is an oblate of the Order of Benedict).Dean Willis, in his welcome printed in the Order of Service, said: “Our worship never ceases to reflect this season of Passiontide but it is also an act of enormous celebration when we are able to surround Justin our Archbishop and also his family with prayer, encouragement and affection.”Much of the music for the service was chosen by Welby, Willis said.During the procession before the service, the cathedral choir performed several anthems and motets. They included Salvator Mundi, by 16th century English composer Thomas Tallis, who served as a vicar choral in the choir at Canterbury Cathedral before the Reformation; Justorum Animae, by Sir Charles Villiers Stanford; Ave Jesu Christe, by Peter Philips; Deep River, by Sir Michael Tippett; Set Me as a Seal Upon Thine Heart, by Sir William Walton; Vox Dei, by Philip Wilby; and Os Justi, by Anton Bruckner.German Lutheran baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach featured prominently in the processional organ repertoire, with cathedral organists performing Prelude in E Flat (BWV 552), Trio Sonata in G (BWV 530), and Prelude and Fugue in C (BWV 545). Organ music at the end of the service included Marcia (from Symphonie III), by Charles-Marie Widor; Fantasie sur le Te Deum et Guirlandes Alleluiatiques, by Charles Tournemire; and Grand Dialogue in C, by Louis Marchand.Hymns during the service included Come down, O Love Divine; Great is thy Faithfulness; O God, my Father; I am the Light whose Brightness Shines; Come, Holy Ghost, our Souls Inspire; The Church’s one Foundation; and In Christ Alone my Hope is Found.The Rt. Rev. Jana Jeruma Grinberga, Lutheran Church of Great Britain, read the Old Testament lesson (Ruth 2: 1-2 and 15-20) and Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols, read the New Testament lesson (2 Corinthians 5: 16-21). Both Jeruma Grinberga and Nichols are among the five co-presidents of Churches Together in England. The archbishop of Canterbury is the fifth.Prayers were offered in remembrance of the anniversaries of the death of St. Benedict, and of 16th century Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer, whose Book of Common Prayer shaped the worship of the Church of England. The Episcopal Church’s calendar commemorates Cranmer on March 21.Twenty-one years ago, Juliet Hemingray designed the vestments Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby wore for his inauguration March 21.The vestments worn by Welby during the service were originally designed and made 21 years ago by Juliet Hemingray for the late Bishop of Peterborough Ian Cundy. They were bought as a gift for Cundy from the students and staff at Cranmer Hall, Durham, where Welby was a student.“Archbishop Justin wears them in gratitude to a teacher and bishop who had a formative impact on his ministry,” according to a press release from Lambeth Palace.The design is based on Jesus’ first miracle at the wedding in Cana. “The blues and purples represent water changing into wine, as well as baptismal waters,” the release said. “The three fish suggest the Holy Trinity, while serving as a reminder to Christians to be partners in mission as fishers of men.”In the lead-up to his enthronement, Welby embarked on a six-day prayer pilgrimage to various cities under his jurisdiction throughout the midlands and the south of England. (The archbishop of York overseas Church of England dioceses in the north.)In a recent interview for Anglican World magazine, Welby said that in his new role he, with the rest of the Anglican Communion, is faced with “a challenge for the imagination.”“What do we mean by the Anglican Communion, and how does it contribute as a blessing to the world in which we live in its present circumstances?” he asked. “That challenge to the imagination is something that is constantly renewed and we need to be very reactive to it, and not allow ourselves to get bogged down in looking inward.”Newly inaugurated Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby greets the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. ENS photo/Matthew DaviesFollowing months of anticipation and media speculation, Downing Street confirmed on Nov. 9, 2012 that the Queen had approved the nomination of Welby as the 105th archbishop of Canterbury.Church of England bishops are appointed rather than elected, with a 16-member Crown Nominations Commission putting forward two names — a preferred candidate and a second candidate — to Downing Street. The U.K. prime minister then seeks approval from the British monarch.Before his ordination to the priesthood in 1992, Welby studied law and history at Cambridge University and then spent 11 years as an executive in the oil industry. After a decade in parish ministry, he was appointed a canon residentiary, and later sub-dean, of Coventry Cathedral. He served as dean of Liverpool Cathedral from 2007-2011.As bishop of Durham, the fourth-most-senior position in the Church of England to which he was consecrated in October 2011, Welby was automatically granted a seat in the House of Lords.Welby succeeds the Most Rev. Rowan Williams, who stepped down at the end of 2012 after serving as the 104th archbishop of Canterbury since February 2003. Williams is now master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.Welby is married to Caroline and they have five children, ranging in age from mid-teens to late 20s.The inauguration’s order of service is here.A Press Association photo gallery from the service is here.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Canada: Same-sex marriage ‘theologically possible,’ says commission

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Smithfield, NC September 26, 2015 at 8:42 pm An important reason why SSM has progressed is that very few are viewing gender from the psychological standpoint. The benefit of marriage to society isn’t procreation, which can be accomplished quite well without marriage, but because each gender offers psychological strengths that stabilize us in our most impressionable years, and marriage is a way that the community provides support for that. The continuing catastrophe of fatherlessness, including its effects on criminality, addiction, and mental illness, are mainly due to a failure of society to understand this. Commission members present their report to CoGS members (L to R): Stephen Martin, Canon Paul Jennings, Bishop Linda Nicholls, Patricia Bays, The Rev. Paul Friesen and Archbishop John Privett. Photo: André Forget[Anglican Journal] The Anglican Church of Canada may want to look at same-sex marriages as partaking “in the same covenant” as heterosexual unions, but “on somewhat different terms,” and possibly involving alternate liturgies, recommends the report of the Commission on the Marriage Canon, released Sept. 22.Just as the New Testament describes the Gentiles in the early church as drawn into the people of Israel’s covenant with God, but not required to observe Jewish tradition, so might the Anglican Church of Canada understand same-sex couples as drawn into the same covenant as heterosexual couples, but in a new way, commission member Stephen Martin told members of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), who gathered for a special session in Toronto to receive the report.“We’re suggesting this might be the more accurate, faithful and biblical way of thinking about what might be happening in the church today,” Martin said. “That is, it’s not a question of us redefining marriage in the abstract to be more inclusive and thereby imply, I don’t know what – that the previous understanding of marriage was wrong. But, it may be simply that God is calling same-sex couples into marriage and thereby broadening and enriching the institution without denying its previous meanings.”He added: “Maybe God is intending to graft gay Christians into the institution of Christian marriage, sharing its root meaning yet on somewhat different terms.”This conception of same-sex marriage, Martin said, would involve revising the canon using gender-neutral language, and probably also new liturgies for same-sex couples which would “share the same core vows” as liturgies for heterosexual couples.Martin cautioned that the model the report was proposing was a recommendation only. “This argument is not an attempt to prove something, to prove that this is the way to go forward,” he said. “We are offering a rationale, that is a way of conceiving of it theologically in a way that we’re suggesting might have integrity. But the church will still have to discern whether this is God’s will for the church.”It is, he added, one of three “logical possibilities” being put forward by the commission, and something of a middle way between the other two. The other two possibilities, according to the report, are, on the one hand, to see same-sex marriages as an “undifferentiated” form of Christian marriage, essentially identical to heterosexual marriages; and, on the other, to see them as “blessed partnerships” rather than covenants before God.The commission said it arrived at a conclusion that it is “theologically possible to extend the marriage canon to include same-sex couples, without thereby diminishing, damaging, or curtailing the rich theological implications of marriage as traditionally understood.”But, it hastened to add, “to say that it is theologically possible to make this change is not to say that the change is theologically desirable.” What the commission sought out to do was “to show how it may be done – not why or even whether it should be done,” it said in its report. “These questions require more than theological argumentation: they require an act of corporate discernment.”The commission was formed by CoGS as a result of Resolution C003, a 2013 decision by General Synod to bring a motion allowing same-sex marriage to its next meeting in 2016. The resolution asked CoGS to craft the motion, which would amend the church’s Canon 21 on marriage “to allow the marriage of same-sex couples in the same way as opposite-sex couples.”In its report, the commission also concluded that changing the marriage canon to allow for same-sex unions does not directly contravene the Solemn Declaration of 1893, the founding document of the Anglican Church of Canada, which reflects its historic roots in the Church of England and its “theological and doctrinal heritage.”It noted that when General Synod allowed the remarriage of divorced persons, the ordination of women and the reception of holy communion by children prior to confirmation, they were not deemed to be in contravention of the Solemn Declaration “even though the Church of England had not made those changes at the time they were implemented by the Canadian church.”Nonetheless, the commission ultimately decided that it was the prerogative of General Synod to determine whether the proposed change to the marriage canon is “in harmony with the Solemn Declaration.”Among others, General Synod 2016 will “need to discern whether this change is sufficiently rooted in the ‘same Word of God’ and discern its relationship to ‘all things necessary for salvation.’”It is also up to General Synod to determine whether same-sex marriage “is an area of definition and interpretation of doctrine in which it can make change and, if it, whether it is a change it believes is appropriate.”The commission’s recommendation of the middle way in understanding same-sex marriage comes nearly at the very end of the report, following about 30 pages of reflection on biblical and theological issues intended to provide the rationale for allowing same-sex marriages.This reflection is located in what Martin called two “clusters of meaning” around marriage: on the one hand, creation accounts in the Book of Genesis, which refer to the goodness of the union of male and female, and the creation of new life out of that union, and, on the other, New Testament descriptions of the church – particularly in Ephesians 5 – as the body of Christ. The latter points to the concept of Christian marriage as a way of living out the divine command to love one another, so that the basis of marriage is not procreation and the union of male and female but rather its ability to point to Christ’s relationship to the church as a model of love.In practical terms, understanding same-sex covenants as “a differentiated form of Christian marriage covenant” is also “compatible with the revision of the canon to include same-sex couples (as called for in the resolution of the General Synod),” said the report. “It would suggest a liturgy that allows for variation in the theological background and symbolism between same-and-opposite-sex marriages, while retaining identical core texts, such as the vows.” The draft resolution drawn up by the committee calls for, among other things, amending the wording of Canon 21 to be gender-neutral, substituting “partners” for “husband and wife,” for example.Seeing same-sex and heterosexual marriages as essentially the same has a number of advantages, the report states, such as simplicity and formal equality. However, it continues, simplicity may not necessarily be desirable; “with respect to theological understanding richness, complexity, and differentiation are desirable traits.” Also, the report states, “this model would seem to change to some extent the definition of marriage for heterosexual couples” by removing “the rich symbolism of heterosexual love from the definition of marriage, leaving the institution more abstract.”Also, Martin said, “it may be that same-sex relationships have specific gifts to offer the church which would not be celebrated if we tried to fit them into a one-size fits all [category].”Considering same-sex unions merely as “blessed partnerships” also has some advantages, the report states. For example, it “runs no risk of redefining traditional heterosexual marriage…. No one need fear that marriage has changed.” On the other hand, the report states, “as a blessing without vows, this model does not acknowledge the relationship’s potential to be a place in which the couple exercises their vocation of Christian love by striving to be as Christ to one another in covenanted love.”“Can the church not discern in these partnerships a sign, an instance, ofChrist’s love for the church?” Martin asked.In its report, the commission also drafted a motion that includes a provision allowing dioceses, bishops and congregations to opt-out of performing same-sex marriages. Along with formulating the biblical and theological rationale for allowing same-sex marriages, the commission was charged with developing a “conscience clause,” included in the amendment “so that no member of the clergy, bishop, congregation or diocese should be constrained to participate in or authorize such marriages against the dictates of their conscience.”The commission’s work also included a consultation process, in which it invited opinions on the issue. It received a total of 223 submissions from individuals representing 26 dioceses, two from theological colleges, three from specialists, three from full communion and ecumenical partners, and six from institutions and organizations. Several submitters argued against allowing same-sex marriages, although whether to allow them or not was beyond the commission’s mandate.

Very few church members agree with the church 100% of the time on theology, so why does this issue cause such a ruckus? God decides what is “good” or “bad” and not our mortal selves.

It has been constructed on 6,500 square metres of land,which overlooks the Indian Ocean to the west and a natural river system to the north. The Villa also has views across to the local beach temple and views to the volcanoes in the distance, creating a special connection between the architecture and its place. As a result, the design followed the concept of creating a ‘Landscaped Architecture’ which became important in the physical connection of the natural and built environments.Save this picture!© MochSulthonnThe design utilises a layout whereby the buildings are formed aroundthe central courtyard, creating intimate internal spaces between the buildings, and more open spaces towards the perimeter. The buildings are situated on different levels of the land and are treated like giant planter boxes, each with a rooflandscaped by either natural vegetation or ponds. The end result is what was termed “Landscaped Architecture”,in which the boundaries between the naturaland the built become blurred, allowing the architecture not only to sit on the land, but actually to become part of it.Save this picture!© MochSulthonnBecause of the remote location of the project, it was important that the Villa could operate self -sufficiently. To achieve this, a number of green systems and design approaches were adopted.The splitting of building forms created natural ventilation through the site, as well as through each individual building; effectively cooling the spaces. As power had to be generated through a system of solar panels and batteries backed up by a generator, it was important that this passive cooling was maximized as much as possible in order to reduce the strain on the system.Save this picture!© MochSulthonnAs well as connecting the architecture to the land, the roof planter boxes served an additional purpose in creating a natural cooling effect on the spaces below. Rain water catchment systems were also developed as part of achieving self-sufficient operation of the Villa.Save this picture!floor planAnother key design approach was the use ofnatural and locally sourced materials. This meant that not only were local suppliers and artisans supported by this initiative, but also the carbon footprint of the building could be reduced. In doing so the material palette becomes a true reflection of the building’s location, further blurring the line between the architecture and its landscape.Save this picture!© MochSulthonnProject gallerySee allShow lessSpliced Towers / AQSO ArquitectosArticlesIn Progress: Steven Holl Architects’ Campbell Sports Center Tops OutArticles Share Projects “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

Nyx by Sansiri Sales Gallery / TROP : terrains + open space

Nyx by Sansiri is a new residential tower, located in Thonburi, just across the river from Bangkok. Around July, 2013, TROP got a commission to design its sales gallery, which contains a reception area, mock up units and staff office, plus the surrounding landscape. Usually most sales gallery for this type of projects are quite similar. Clients would want to see some beautiful architecture standing in the impressive surrounding. Its main purpose is to attract the potential buyers to drive in and, hopefully, buy a unit or two.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaRecommended ProductsCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD19Panels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsMIS Facade PanelFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panel – Salt’n’PepperOur first interest is to find out the meaning of the project’s name, “Nyx”. According to Wikipedia, “In Greek Mythology, Nyx is the goddess of the night. Most legends portray her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.” The client’s marketing department gave us a brief that most of their potential buyers are those who work hard and play harder. Usually these group of people arrive their homes in the late hour, therefore using the goddess of the night’s name makes sense for the sale.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaInspired by this mysterious female figure, we wanted to design the architecture with a sense of femininity. Curve lines will dominate the space, while boxy shapes of the mock up units will have to be hidden. Instead of creating a sales gallery right in the middle of the site, we tried to tone down the design gesture a little bit. Our first move is to locate all function areas right next to the boundary wall. Then we cut and rolled the boundary wall inward, creating 2 curvy facades of the sales gallery.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaIn between these 2 curved walls, the reception area, toilets, 2 mock up units and staff office are tightly placed together. All perpendicular corners of the mock up units are now revealed only right next to the boundary wall, which nobody could see from the outside. To echo the “Night” appearance, the whole building is painted in Midnight Blue color. Throughout the curved walls, a series of holes are strategically placed to create contrast between solid and void. In the daytime, we can see the greenery revealing through the wall, while, at night, the lighting can pass through like stars.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaThe sales gallery is also integrated into the surrounding landscape. Green sloped landform is located in front of the first curve wall. Featured tree is planted in the middle of the space. In daytime, its shadow casts on the wall, creating beautiful pattern. At night, with the uplighting on the wall, the tree becomes only a silhouette. In the dark, the shadows and light cast on the curved walls, creating even more mysterious appearance, just like “Nyx”, the goddess of the night.
