The VHR-10 gHOUSE is a prototype for a guest house, named for its zoning and location, R-10 zoning in the district of Vineyard Haven. The following guesthouse restrictions apply: Zoning district limits guesthouses to residential lots larger than 12,500sqft. House and guesthouse must be disconnected and at least 10 ft apart. The guesthouse square footage cannot exceed 600sqft. Guesthouse height must be under 24 feet. The first floor of the guesthouse must not exceed 6 feet in height (otherwise it is considered the second floor, and the basement is counted in the livable square feet.) Basement cannot be accessible from the inside living area of house (otherwise considered part of livable square footage).Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe initial diagram for the house grew out of the desire to maximize the allowable zoning envelope for the guesthouses in this district. The client built and lives in the guest house as their main house. The desire was to maximize the future value of their lot. Given the height and footprint zoning limitations a W 16’-0” x L 40’-0” x H 24’-0” box was drawn with a 4’-0” construction module. The 600 sqft main living level was established 5’-6” off of the ground – raising the basement a half level, thus allowing walkout and automobile accessibility along a reasonably sloped driveway from the street.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanEven though the living area is raised, the 24’-0” height restriction accommodated a double high interior living space. The last restriction, access to basement, was created by dividing the box into three different volumes relating to the cooking, living/dining, and sleeping. The middle volume (living/dining) is shifted 4’-0” out from the other volumes to make room for vertical circulation. The three shifted volumes are wrapped in a wood rain-screen that re-establishes the box as a 20’-0” x 40’-0” volume enveloping the vertical circulation. This condition places the vertical circulation outside the house (living to basement) and inside the building wrapper. This ambiguity creates a layered extension of the inside to the outside while providing a weather protective and privacy screen.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanGiven the fact that Martha’s Vineyard is an island, labor, materials, and weather greatly impact construction time and budget. The house combines pre-manufactured building techniques with modifications to local modes of production to create a reproducible building system that is unique to the island. The foundation was originally designed to employ a pre-cast concrete foundation system from off island, but given the prevalence of poured-in-placed concrete foundations the costs were less and the house and retaining walls could be the same material.Save this picture!PlansHowever, standard pour-in-place forms result in an unrefined finish, so a new water resistant OSB (oriented strand board) was used leaving the random texture of the wood strands concrete surface. The pattern resulted in a very finished texture that hides cracking. The OSB forms were then reused to construct the floor and roof deck of the house. The main structure of the house is built with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) on a 4’-0” module. The panels were assembled in New Hampshire and shipped over via ferry. The entire structure was assembled in 3 days, including two 40 foot engineered beams for the sliding screen cantilevers.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe stress skin nature of the SIP system allowed for a more open interior plan with only one 4’-0” shear wall in the main living / dining volume. The outer rain-screen also on a 4’-0” module is made from pre-assembled panels that were constructed on the ground and lifted into place with a block and tackle. This system accelerated construction time and allows panels to be easily removed for repair or access to the weather envelope.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanProject gallerySee allShow lessPhobos Office Building Rehabilitation / Studio Vincent EschalierSelected ProjectsCo-Connect House / Hugo Kohno Architect AssociatesSelected Projects Share United States 2005 CopyAbout this officeArchitecture-Infrastructure-ResearchOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookTisburyUnited StatesPublished on November 09, 2019Cite: “VH R-10 G House / Architecture-Infrastructure-Research” 08 Nov 2019.

Sep 25, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – While antiviral-resistant H1N1 influenza viruses remain rare, clinicians should watch for two particular kinds of H1N1 cases that seem more likely to give rise to viruses resistant to oseltamivir (Tamiflu), the World Health Organization (WHO) said today.So far, 28 oseltamivir-resistant viruses have been detected worldwide, the WHO said in today’s statement. Twelve of these were linked to use of the drug for postexposure prophylaxis, and 6 were in patients who had severe immunosuppression. Four more cases involved other patients being treated with the drug, and 2 patients were not on the drug.In view of the findings, the WHO urged clinicians to watch for resistance in:Patients with severely compromised or suppressed immune systems who have prolonged H1N1 illness and have received oseltamivir (especially if for a long time) but still have evidence of viral replicationPeople who receive preventive oseltamivir after exposure to another infected person but then get sick anyway”In both of these clinical situations, health care staff should respond with a high level of suspicion that oseltamivir resistance has developed,” the WHO said. “Laboratory investigation should be undertaken to determine whether resistant virus is present, and appropriate infection control measures should be implemented or reinforced to prevent spread of the resistant virus.”The agency also recommended conducting epidemiologic investigations in such situations to find out if a resistant virus has spread to anyone else.Person-to-person transmission of resistant H1N1 viruses has not yet been clearly shown, the WHO said. Local transmission may have occurred in some situations, but it didn’t lead to ongoing or wider transmission.The agency also said the resistant viruses do not seem to cause different or more severe symptoms. Except for immunocompromised patients, those infected with resistant viruses have had typical flu cases.The WHO does not generally recommend using oseltamivir to prevent H1N1 illness, today’s statement noted. For people who have been exposed and are at risk for a severe case, an alternative is close monitoring and early treatment if symptoms develop.In August the agency recommended against antiviral treatment for previously healthy people with uncomplicated H1N1 cases. It stressed prompt antiviral treatment for those with severe illness, pregnant women, and people with conditions such as asthma, obesity, or diabetes.See also: Sep 25 WHO statement on antivirals and resistancehttp://www.who.int/csr/disease/swineflu/notes/h1n1_antiviral_use_20090925/en/index.htmlAug 21 CIDRAP News story “WHO: In treating H1N1, save antivirals for high-risk cases”
adidas designer Inigo Turner said in a statement on the club website: “We have aimed to break expectations by reengineering simple but impactful design features such as the classic v-neck collar and the iconic three-stripe detailing down the arms as our commitment to giving Manchester United a truly ground-breaking kit for the 2015/16 season.” The kit, launched under the slogan ‘Break Expectations’, also features a graphic design on the hem of the shirt taken from the 1990 jersey worn by Ryan Giggs in his debut season. Press Association It is the first strip made by the German sportswear manufacturer since they signed a 10-year partnership with the Barclays Premier League giants. The shirt cost £60 from the club’s official online megastore on Saturday, with a kids’ shirt priced at £50. A baby kit was £35. Manchester United have unveiled their new adidas home kit and it is reminiscent of their shirts of the 1980s.
