The ‘lanes’ in Amagansett, New York, are a set of walkable streets perpendicular to Main street, dotted with a diverse range of houses and styles, that is walking distance to the ocean. One of our challenges was to create a home that would accommodate the owners wish for a maintenance-free house with longevity, inside and outside. This led to building shapes and materials that would be hardy, devoid of delicate detailing, and requiring no re-finishing over time. All exterior materials, from the charred cypress to raw concrete walls, to the zinc roof, are chosen for their ability to weather and patina naturally over time. Windows and doors are pushed tight up to the forward plane of the clapboards to keep a tight weather seal.

By doing so, we were able to let the longer side of the house face south and direct sun, while maintaining a suitable distance to the neighbors. The front yard is softened with a green buffer, a meadow, which over time will grow and create a natural green zone along the street while creating privacy for the homeowners. The first impression of the house is that of a raw, unfinished, concrete wall sitting in this meadow; its profile echoing the familiar shape of a barn. It hides the garage and scales the front face of the house down to meet that of older homes that were prevalent in the lanes.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Matthew CarboneQuickly, the concrete gives way to a slightly charred cypress (an organic anti-termite material), starting a play between these two materials that extends throughout the house — contrasting spaces of a recluse (wood) with foundational anchoring walls (concrete). The ground level is dedicated to living spaces and offers a bedroom for guests. In the living room, a raw steel box is inserted into a concrete wall providing accessible storage for our client’s collection of rare and vintage vinyl records. The connection with the outdoors, size of windows and overhangs, is carefully managed to both addresses the clients’ wish for a strong sense of interiority, as well as the filtering of natural light.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneThe second floor holds the parent’s bedroom, at the far end. It is separated from the children’s bedrooms with a second-floor porch and roof ‘cut-out’. The porch is entered through a south-facing sliding glass door that, together with the north-facing ribbon window, allow natural light to filter into the house and reflect down into the heart of the house via narrow slits, and openings, along with the staircase and its concrete stair-wall. A sunken courtyard on the south side of the house and a generous light-well on the north break the flatness of the site and allow light to be filtered into the lower level, transforming a basement into a well-lit family room with a private outdoor space.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Matthew CarboneProject gallerySee allShow less5 Promising Young Firms Selected as 2018 New Practices New York Award WinnersArchitecture NewsArchitecture On Screen: Illustrated Plans From 6 Award-Winning Films of 2017Articles Share House in the Lanes / MB ArchitectureSave this projectSaveHouse in the Lanes / MB ArchitectureSave this picture!© Matthew Carbone+ 26Curated by María Francisca González Share Projects Landscape Architect: CopyAbout this officeMB ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmagansettUnited StatesPublished on January 31, 2018Cite: “House in the Lanes / MB Architecture” 31 Jan 2018.

Panel questions role of religion during election year

first_imgThree academics explored the dichotomy between religion and faith Thursday at “The Great Divide: Faith and Politics in America Today,” hosted by the USC Caruso Catholic Center and the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies.The event is the fourth in the “Race, Faith and Violence” series, which examines the intersection of three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and the current political and cultural climate. Varun Soni, dean of religious life, moderated the event, which focused on the divide between religion and politics, and how different faiths can work together to surmount it.The panel featured Rabbi Reuven Firestone, a Regenstein professor in medieval Judaism as well as a member of the School of Religion faculty; Amir Hussain, a professor of Islam and world religions at Loyola Marymount University; and Pim Valkenberg, professor of religion and culture at the Catholic University of America.The event began with an introduction by former U.S. ambassador, author and professor of constitutional law Doug Kmiec, who spoke about the intimate relationship between politics and religion in the United States, and how the freedom to practice religion independent of government interference is a gift that the Founders of the United States passed on down to future generations.“The Founders gave us a nation that had a preference for freedom and had a special preference for freedom of conscience and freedom of religion,” Kmiec said.Kmiec asked the panelists to discuss how each of their faiths has helped build American culture and how Americans can work together to build a joint culture rather than tear down each other’s traditions. Hussain discussed the experience of Muslims in America, especially after 9/11 and the anti-Sharia laws and anti-Muslim feelings it evoked, and how it defeated the promises that this country stands for. He also touched on issues of what it means to be a patriot, and whether that definition of patriotism includes someone like Colin Kaepernick, the professional football quarterback standing up in the face of perceived injustice and making a statement.Firestone spoke about the divides that are embedded in American culture, such as the prejudice against Judaism evident in many pieces of literature, music and folktales. This lead to an increase in anti-Semitic crimes, despite Jews being well represented in the highest tiers of American society, according to Firestone. Firestone and the rest of the panel believed that if we acknowledge these prejudices and are able to talk about them in discussions and symposiums like this one, this will be the first step in solving such divides in our society.Events such as this one are paramount to making USC a more accepting and forward thinking campus, according to Samuel Paul, executive director for the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies. “The importance is to be able to integrate their monotheistic thought and be a little more pluralistic,” Paul said. “It’s respect, it’s understanding of other traditions, other people and other sexual orientations, and above it all, it’s respect, understanding and dignity, and you can only do that by listening.”Cyrus Khandalavala, a sophomore studying international relations, agreed on the importance of students attending events like these.“A lot of people just follow the preconceived ideas they have about religion, so when you actually get into conversations with them, you can complicate your viewpoint in important ways,” Khandalavala said.last_img read more
