The M&M House is a weekend retreat constructed on a five acre wooded lot. The client is a well-known New York artist and her husband. The first phase, a modest, one story house, was constructed in 2000. Organized like an open loft space, all services are concentrated in a compact central block, allowing natural cross ventilation and optimal use of living space. Responding to the constraints of the sloping site, the house is orientated to capture light and views, while the painted wood siding echoes the rhythm of the trees on site.

The result is a vertical counterpoint to the horizontal body of the existing house, which houses the inward looking space of the working artist’s studio. The space between becomes an extended open foyer which frames a courtyard space and serves for the exhibition of work. The lot slopes gently down to a stream and this second phase was an opportunity to implement a new landscape strategy. Working closely with the landscape architect, we created a structured geometric frame for the house, which contrasts to the naturalistic character of the larger site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stan Allen ArchitectThe M&M studio addition was designed shortly after completion of the Maribor Art Gallery. The studio employs a similar five-sided plan strategy and figural roof geometries; what had been a space for the exhibition of art is re-purposed for a space dedicated to the production of art.

Power couple Nadal, Federer take Europe closer to Laver Cup

first_imgPrague, Czech Republic | AFP |  Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer took Team Europe to within two wins of lifting the Laver Cup as they won their singles and their first-ever doubles rubber together in Prague on Saturday.The world’s highest ranking duo handed Team Europe skippered by Bjorn Borg a 9-3 lead over Team World captained by John McEnroe after two days.After Nadal and Federer had won their singles rubbers, all eyes at Prague’s sold-out O2 Arena were then on the two legends who played on the same side of the net for the first time in careers which have stretched the best part of two decades.They started the doubles rubber against Sam Querrey and Jack Sock on a high, earning a break in the first set to win 6-4.They visibly enjoyed the experience, with Federer laughing off a massive air shot halfway through the set.However, they were then in far more serious mood in the second set as both lost their serve, allowing the American pair to level with a 6-1 win. Much to their relief, the world’s top two players, with 35 Grand Slam singles titles between them, regained their composure in time to sweep their rivals 10/5 in a super tie-break which decided the clash.In Saturday’s opener, Federer, this year’s Australian Open and Wimbledon winner and the world number two, swept 16th-ranked Querrey 6-4, 6-2 after earning a break in the first set and two in the second. World number one Nadal, who won the French and US Open, then overcame a scare to beat 21st-ranked Sock 6-3, 3-6, 11/9.Nadal and Sock traded breaks early into the rubber but Nadal added another to take the first set.“When you have the opportunity, you strike” @rodlaver pic.twitter.com/2offJT9rWP— Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) September 23, 2017The second set was a mirror image of the first with Sock taking the honours and earning a nerve-wracking super tie-break, in which he came back from 5-1 down to level at 9-9 before Nadal showed his dominance to win.Australia’s world number 20 Nick Kyrgios then gave Team World a boost as he beat 19th-ranked Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 10/6 in a clash of big servers.Kyrgios lost his very first serve and struggled against the dominant Berdych in the first set, but then he took the second in a tie-break as both held on to their serves, before winning the super tie-break aided by 18 aces against Berdych’s 16.On Sunday, three singles and one doubles will close the tournament, with the players earning three points for each win after two on Saturday and one on Friday.On Friday, Marin Cilic beat Frances Tiafoe, Dominic Thiem overpowered John Isner and Alexander Zverev saw off Denis Shapovalov to hand Europe a 3-1 lead as Nadal and Berdych lost to Kyrgios and Sock in doubles.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
