With summer days ahead, Associated Designs has launched a new home plan filled with Mediterranean warmth. A stucco and stone exterior draws your attention from the street and the modern floor plan offers comfortable living.

This two-story design is accented with Mediterranean style that makes every day an escape to a bright and exotic place. Bold stone columns draw your attention to the covered porch and front door while built-in planters add pops of color.

Inside, the foyer is open and spacious. A small boudoir is immediately to your left and would make an ideal home office with its proximity to the front door. The foyer transitions smoothly into the formal 2-story living room with a cozy fireplace to keep the home bright even when the days get darker and shorter. Aft of the living room, the floor plan turns into an informal space – a large room occupies the right rear corner of the Summerdale. The mix of formal and informal allows the Summerdale to suit a range of entertainment styles. The kitchen is well appointed and offers ample counter space. A walk-in pantry is just steps away as well as access to the main floor laundry room and attached two-car garage.

For those who like to entertain family and friends for longer periods, the first floor offers a comfortable guest suite with private bathroom and large walk-in closet. There is even direct access to the rear terrace, which gives the guest suite the flexibility to serve as a second master suite.

The second floor is filled with Summerdale’s three main bedrooms. A loft spans the second floor and is open to the living room below. The first two bedrooms are private suites, each with a full bathroom and walk-in closet. For those who find outdoor spaces important, the shared balcony between the secondary suites is a welcome feature. The owners suite completes the second floor plan and is a luxurious retreat. Through the French doors, the comfortable suite is revealed. The private bathroom has two sinks, a bathtub, a walk-in shower and a large dressing room. Off the bedroom is a private balcony overlooking the back yard.

“The outdated floor plan was not conducive to contemporary family living,” says Andrew Brewin, founding partner of modern heritageof this 1844 colonial revival. The family had lived in the house for more than a decade before diving into the revamp.

While the owner wanted better fluidity and up-to-date conveniences, she also aimed for an aesthetic that would read as a tribute to the house’s roots. “The client is an avid collector of art and antiques with a curatorial eye and loves the architecture and history of the house,” says Brewin. “She wanted a dark, cozy kitchen in keeping with the era of the house.”

In addition to reconfiguring the layout to consolidate utility areas and expanding the kitchen and breakfast room, the owners wanted a greenhouse-like place to grow plants. “What was initially a three-season room evolved into a four-season space with a pyramid-shaped glass skylight,” says architectural designer Christopher Legere of LightWell Design, who collaborated with Brewin. “I’m proud that we were able to shine a light on his vision,” he jokes.

BARN BEAMS

The team reused locally sourced barn panels to conceal the structural beam they needed to incorporate in order to open up the floor plan. Although more rustic in nature, the color of the beams complements the dark hue of the custom quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry that Modern Heritage designed and manufactured in its Scarborough, Maine workshop.

VEGETABLE CORNER

The team created a bay window with an integrated threshold in the same American Mist granite as the countertops. Not only does it provide a deep ledge for plants and let in tons of light, but the sink and farmhouse window are the focal point of the pocket doors to the veranda, which it lines up with.

It is also a beautiful and admired feature of the backyard. “The box bay has a copper roof that stands out beautifully from the exterior elevation,” says Brewin.

SNEAKY STORAGE

Custom built-in hutches flank the pocket doors to the lanai on the other side of the island, just in front of the sink, making clever use of the shallow space. “They’re painted white to blend in with the existing walls,” says Kelly Bushey, project manager at Modern Heritage.

Seeded leaded glass panels, inspired by some of the client’s antique fixtures, give an aged feel. To the right, the mudroom leads to the courtyard, as well as a new pantry and laundry room.

Material: Whitechapel Ltd and Armac Martin.

FREESTANDING STYLE

A wet bar anchors the breakfast room which doubles as an after school family room. “The bar is meant to look like a freestanding piece of furniture,” says Brewin.

The custom milled V-groove backsplash runs the entire back of the room and is visible through the seeded leaded glass panels.

ANCIENT ACCENTS

The room’s existing antiques, including the 19th-century American oak table and the 18th-century French sideboard, inspired the species and stain color of the millwork.

The customer found the Swedish copper pendant, which attaches to the copper hood in the kitchen.

HOMEWORK CENTER

The team designed a built-in desk and shelf with a sliding door that hides the television for the wall adjacent to the bar.

“The cabinet to the left of the desk wraps around the back of the fireplace in the formal dining room,” says Brewin.

SOLARIUM SOLUTION

The idea of ​​installing an all-glass greenhouse in a backyard turned into a design for an insulated room with a 14-by-8-foot skylight that automatically opens and closes using weather sensors.

“We used custom-machined nickel space on the walls,” Bushey notes. “The bottom pieces are etched on the rolled edge porcelain floor tiles so we can eliminate the baseboards.”

Rough-edged granite slabs lead from the driveway to a new terrace outside the veranda. French doors opposite the outer door open into the formal dining area, while pocket glass doors to the left open into the kitchen.

Long Beach Considers Reduced Fees, Pre-Approved Designs to Accelerate ADU Production • Long Beach Post News https://clarencehouse-hotel.co.uk/long-beach-considers-reduced-fees-pre-approved-designs-to-accelerate-adu-production-long-beach-post-news/ Tue, 03 May 2022 17:09:52 +0000 https://clarencehouse-hotel.co.uk/long-beach-considers-reduced-fees-pre-approved-designs-to-accelerate-adu-production-long-beach-post-news/ A recent city memo outlined options the city council could consider to help increase the number of ADUs, commonly known as “Granny Flats,” as the city grapples with a housing shortage that has contributed to the rising cost of rents in the city.

A recent city memo outlined options the city council could consider to help increase the number of ADUs, commonly known as “Granny Flats,” as the city grapples with a housing shortage that has contributed to the rising cost of rents in the city.

In January, the council requested a program for ADUs as it finalized the city state’s required plan for future housing production known as the Housing Element. The city’s production target by 2029 is 26,500 and city planners have projected that ADUs could play a role in reaching this number.

Planning officials estimate that ADU production in the city could peak at about 500 per year over the next decade and remain at that level for about five years. The city currently receives about 300 ADU requests per year.

To speed up the permitting process and cut costs, the council could consider allowing local designers to submit plans to the city for pre-approval, which could then be sold to homeowners hoping to build a unit in their backyard.

The city could also allow manufactured home companies to submit designs for pre-approval by the city to provide a potentially faster construction phase for homeowners.

However, the projected cost to build an 800-square-foot ADU, the largest allowed in Long Beach, could cost around $220,000 based on 2022 construction prices.

The program would not prevent people from hiring their own designers, but would provide an option for people wishing to streamline the construction of a unit without having to potentially correct potential housing code issues that may exist in plans submitted by their architects.

Director of Development Services Oscar Orci said in the memo that both options could offer advantages because local operators in the area are familiar with Long Beach housing codes and, in either case, would retain ownership of the property. their plans and responsibility for the designs.

Some cities have opted to buy plans from designers and sell them directly to residents, but this option was identified in the memo as a potential legal issue for the city if there were design flaws with the purchased plans. . It would also require the city to buy the plans and likely pass those costs on to residents who want to build.

The city council called for a similar scheme to be developed earlier this year as it sought a more aggressive approach to producing more housing in the city by giving landlords a less bureaucratic and cheaper route to adding to their properties.

The proposed program, which could be presented to city council in the coming months, would reduce some design and engineering fees typically paid by homeowners by 6% to 2%.

Plan review fees, which the city says would typically run into the thousands for an 800-square-foot ADU, would be cut in half.

Further savings would be realized if homeowners sought to build a smaller unit, as state law would exempt them from paying impact fees to support police, fire and park services. This could reduce the cost of a project by around $3,500.

There would still be unavoidable fees assessed by the Long Beach Unified School District, which charges about $4 per square foot of new construction, regardless of the size of an ADU, and a fee to connect the unit to a pipe. disgust. For an 800-square-foot ADU, that could cost $4,564, according to the memo.

After the city council approves a program, it takes the city about six months to sort through the designs submitted for consideration by those wishing to build an ADU with a design pre-approved by the city.

Easier approval process for ADUs may come with future Long Beach program

Final designs for a Visitor Center and Learning Center at Oldham’s Northern Roots Eco-Park have been submitted for planning approval.

A cafe, shop, outdoor amphitheater and classroom are among the elements to be included in the scheme, with the buildings to sit at opposite ends of the Snipe Clough site.

Led by architect Alison Thornton-Sykes of JDDK Architects, the consultation included building design workshops with Oldham College, Mahdlo Youth Zone and the general public of Oldham.

Alison Thornton-Sykes with students from Oldham College.

The resulting visitor center, which will provide a café, exhibit, shop and meeting space, has been designed to blend into the surrounding natural environment and nestles in the wooded edge at the northern end of the site.

Ms Thornton-Sykes said: ‘The visitor center was inspired by the transformation of a caterpillar from the cocoon stage to an emerging butterfly.

“This journey of transformation remains symbolic of the wider transformation of the Northern Roots site from its industrial past to a green masterplan, with the butterfly roof rising from an elliptical-shaped building surrounding an inviting courtyard.”

The Oldham Times:

The layout of the welcome center is structured around a central cloister leading to the reception area which flows into the retail space and also provides access to the staff areas and a space for meditation and multi-denominational prayer service.

The cloister continues to provide access to washrooms, including a changing room and multi-purpose/learning space.

From the reception, the stairs and the lift lead to a cafe on the first floor.

The cafe opens onto a south-facing terrace that connects to steps and a pathway leading to an amphitheater.

The Oldham Times:

Inspired by treehouses, the Learning Center, meanwhile, is in a wooded area southeast of the app boundary.

It will consist of a set of interconnected half-timbered buildings, which will be placed on stilts.

The center will house a reception, classrooms, a teaching kitchen and rest area, staff facilities, a multi-faith prayer and meditation space, restrooms and a dormitory.

There will also be central and external meeting space for outdoor learning.

The full planning application can be viewed on Oldham Council’s website.

A separate planning application for a cycling center and trails in Northern Roots was submitted in February.
