LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight Man apart: Warren Gatland will be part of his third Lions tour Congratulations Warren Gatland – and, er, commiserations. For while being named head coach of the 2017 British & Irish Lions tour to New Zealand is a great honour, one to be celebrated and cherished, the task ahead is a huge one. In fact, it is arguably the toughest any Lions coach has ever faced.Yes, there have been longer tours, ill-prepared tours and controversial tours – but next year’s trip to New Zealand could be the most thankless of all. Stephen Jones put it succinctly in The Sunday Times when he described it as “mission impossible”. Perhaps we should all hope Wasps new boy Tom Cruse has a phenomenal season and earns a call-up!There are myriad factors that make this tour so foreboding, but first a few positives when looking at the man in charge and why he’s been chosen for the top job.Big calls: Warren Gatland omitted Brian O’Driscoll from the final Test in SydneyGatland has experience both in the northern and southern hemispheres. He’s been successful on both the club and international stage, too, winning European and Premiership titles with Wasps as well as Grand Slams with Wales. Plus, of course, he’s been involved with the Lions before. A coach under Sir Ian McGeechan in South Africa in 2009, he took the reins in 2013 and guided the British Isles to a first series win in 16 years.It’s his nous and his strength of character that are likely to come to fore in New Zealand. He was criticised for his first Wales selection, picking 13 Ospreys in the starting line-up, but it was the pragmatic thing to do. He didn’t have much time to work with the squad before that 2008 Six Nations opener so he picked a team that knew and understood each other.He backs himself and stands by his decisions – and that will be crucial in New Zealand. Who can forget the Brian O’Driscoll furore in 2013? He picked what he believed was the best team for the third Test against Australia and those players duly delivered the required victory.And from a media perspective we all know he’ll lob the occasional ‘grenade’ at a press conference and generate headlines both in the British Isles and New Zealand.Lying in wait: Steve Hansen and his wildly successful All Blacks coaching teamSo what are the big issues ahead for Gatland? The schedule has been described as “ludicrous” and it is gruelling. This is mainly because no one, in the North or South, was willing to budge on the timings.New Zealand would not consider moving the tour back a couple of weeks to give the Lions time to prepare and neither the Aviva Premiership nor Guinness Pro12 would move their finals forward. So we have the situation where a huge contingent of the squad are likely to be playing for their clubs just a week before the first game of the tour on the other side of the world. Ludicrous is being polite. The Premiership clubs have been particularly vociferous in their criticism, but it’s worth remembering that no one was complaining about the extra England v Wales fixture played last May – perhaps because the monetary rewards of that game were split between those same clubs – or the three-Test tour of Australia that lengthened the season to 13 months when taking into account World Cup training camps.Sadly, there is nothing to be done about the schedule now. It’s set. But this situation must be addressed before the next tour to South Africa because it is not sustainable. The Lions is a hugely successful brand but fans need to believe in the prospect of success on the pitch too – and at the moment the squad simply does not have the time to prepare adequately.Scant preparation time: The Aviva Premiership and Pro12 FInals are held just days before the Lions tour startsAs others have suggested, a simple solution would be to scrap the play-offs in Lions year – you immediately reduce the season by two weeks. Or scrap the Anglo-Welsh Cup in those seasons and play a few Premiership fixtures on those weekends. And play hard ball with the host nation, too. They make millions from these tours so should not be able to dictate things to the Lions.On top of the schedule, is the quality of the opposition. The Lions may ‘ease’ themselves in with a game against a Provincial XV – made up of Mitre 10 Cup players – but after that it is relentless. They play all five Kiwi Super Rugby franchises – that includes half of this year’s quarter-finalists – and it is likely that players in the All Blacks squad will be playing in those teams, at least early on the tour. That’s the opposite of 2013, when Wallabies were withdrawn from their Super Rugby sides.A week before the first Test they play the Maori, a side with huge pride and passion that will relish the opportunity to tear into the Lions. Their 19-13 win over the 2005 squad is still fresh in the minds in New Zealand.Last time out: The Lions were thrashed in the 2005 Series 3-0Then there are three Tests against the best team in the world – back-to-back World Cup winners and a side that has lost just three games since the start of RWC 2011. Remember, too, that the All Blacks have not lost at Eden Park since 1994. No wonder they are staging two of the Tests in Auckland.The Lions have only won a series in New Zealand once, way back in 1971, and for all the British and Irish talent at Gatland’s disposal, the odds are heavily stacked against a second triumph in 2017.So congratulations Mr Gatland – and good luck! Warren Gatland’s unveiling as Lions coach in Edinburgh sets off the countdown to the toughest Lions series ever.

August 17, 2017 at 4:43 pm I do not believe God’s “promised land” is the revisionist, leftist, mythological, socialist utopia that our PB is so fond of. This progressive vision is void of atoning, sacramental theology, scriptural integrity, tradition or reason. I will not follow a “movement” that speaks in platitudes and seeks to impair free speech, open dialogue and historical integrity. This “movement” is not Christ centered or even spiritual in nature. It is a socialist political action “movement” that continues to disguise itself in religion. I am and always will be an Episcopalian. I believe in the dignity and value of every human being regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation including the unborn. I do not support a PB who has undertaken an effort to convert our denomination into a Marxist social “justice” organization. August 17, 2017 at 6:36 pm “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, ON EARTH as it is in heaven.” If we do not work to establish His kingdom on earth, we can forget about heaven. What is his kingdom like? What did Jesus do? He healed those in pain, he ate with outcasts and those considered “sinners”, he taught particular care for the poor. “When Lord did we see you hungry ….?” There are a lot of spiritualities in the scriptures,(e.g. behaved from your sins by faith and go to heaven), but this one of establishing the kingdom of justice and love on earth is beyond debate, and is perhaps the most difficult and most avoided. If you are noticing a lot more enemies lately, what are you supposed to do? Try love. Try justice. It works. You can see it if you have faith, hope, and love. In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] In his message for those gathering to worship this Sunday, occasioned by recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the readings of Scripture Episcopalians will hear this weekend, Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry asks, “Where do we go from here: chaos or community?”Noting that “the stain of bigotry has once again covered our land” and that “hope, frankly, sometimes seems far away,” Curry says the way of Jesus of Nazareth shows the way through the chaos to the Beloved Community of God. Commitment to that way, he says, “is our only hope.”The text of the presiding bishop’s message is presented below.A video of the presiding bishop’s message is available here.Resources are available here and here.Reactions from throughout the Episcopal Church are available here. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Dr. William A. Flint, MDiv, PhD says: Tom Sramek, Jr. says: Mark Elliston says: August 17, 2017 at 11:20 pm Bishop Michael, thank you for your leadership in these changing times, fraught with hope and despair. The Church is being called to be a reconciler and a follower of Jesus’s example of humility, critical thinking, and a blessing to an angry world. Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopal Office of Public Affairs, August 22, 2017 at 11:42 pm As I understand it this was a call for community, not chaos . Why are we still arguing who is right and who is wrong? Why is there fighting amongst the posts?I took comfort in the words spoken and wonder how we still have people that are willing to promote raicial or any other hatred in this country. Probably a question that would draw a response that I do not want.I am simple and I believe that Jesus was about love not hate. He often accepted and received those perceived at the time to be unwanted and still showed his love. Rector Washington, DC Rector Belleville, IL Charlottesville, August 18, 2017 at 1:37 pm Dear Presiding Bishop Curry,Thank you for your loving commentary on our current crisis facing a new level of hatefulness and bigotry. But sir, your well intentioned remarks are not enough. They reflect a lack of courage on your part to provide leadership and clarity as to what we as Christians should we be doing, and how we should living out the gospel of Jesus. Living out the Great Commandments of loving God, and loving our neighbors as we should love God has no meaning unless love can be converted into action.God not only extends his love and grace to us through the sacraments he gives us, he expects us to hold up our end of the New Covenant. A covenant, a contract with God, has two parties and mutual promises and commitments. I suggest that God requires us to love him and our neighbor through sacrifice.This sacrifice, giving back some our ourselves what we hold dearly to God, requires commiting ourselves to taking risk, putting our principles, our reputations, and our values, as well as our material possessions as risk to follow the calling of Jesus. This means taken even political stands, and public stands on morality and decency; i.e.; actualizing God’s love through the lessons of the Gospel.Jesus certainly understood this. He faced political power, repression, and self-destructive practice. He upset those in power, defended the powerless, and ultimately was killed for it. He knew his destiny, and faced his journey to the Cross. If he had not had the courage to face what his Father had intended for him, there would be no Gospels, no apostles, no Church, no resurrection, no hope.He made the unique and ultimate full, perfect and suffient sacrifice so that all persons, past, present, and future would have salvation; joining back and in God.All of the Saints and martyrs knew and know this. They put all that they possessed and loved on the line to follow Jesus’ calling to us.People of God like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran pastor, sacrificed his life in the last century to oppose Hitler and Nazism in his own country. He converted God’s love into action.During the Civil Rights movement, of which you are intimately aware, Presiding Bishop, Dr. Martin Luther showed us how to love our neighbor through our neighbor through personal sacrifice.These modern day saints should remind you, Presiding Bishop, of what you, me, and all of us need to do to carry out the Great Commandments. Come out our your office and into the streets. Lead us through your own personal risk, guide us through our own fearfulness to publicly show those sick with hate on how to walk with Jesus. Words are not enough for Jesus or us.

Our Baptismal Covenant, basic to who we are as Episcopal Christians, asks “Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?” I think it is that basic. Love God. Love your neighbor. No one is saying that people can’t say what they want to say. But “free speech” does NOT include giving fully armed, camouflage-wearing, torch-bearing mobs a free pass to express their bigotry and threaten peaceful counter-protesters.It would be good for the person above to describe what s/he believes IS God’s “promised land.” Advocacy Peace & Justice, Rector Pittsburgh, PA Submit a Job Listing TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Margaret A Fletcher says: August 17, 2017 at 6:32 pm While I too, am not among the PB’s “Jesus movement- egalitarian- stuff’ admirer’s, it seems to me that Jesus spoke about a kingdom which has one authority figure and it was not us.He also said something about those who wished to be great should be the servants of all.Servants are not greater than their masters but these models of leadership are never popular but happen all the time in the prayer and the gentle outpourings of community and care that form around disasters.

After hearing Bishop Curry’s message, my heart is strengthened and hope renewed. These are indeed tumultuous times and I am thankful we have such a loving and compassionate person to lead us through this darkness and into the light! August 18, 2017 at 8:33 pm Margaret, please read Henry Drummond’s essay, “The Greatest Thing in the World.” It explains the writing of St. Paul in 1 Corinthians XIII, and was written in 1880, so he was not talking of today’s situations at all, but how to evaluate the Love Christ emphasized.http://henrydrummond.wwwhubs.com/greatest.htmJohn Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit an Event Listing Margaret A Fletcher says: Susan Zimmerman says: Chunky Dunlap says: Rector Bath, NC August 19, 2017 at 11:47 am Amazing grace how sweet the sound …. that saved a wretch like me. Those words were written en by the former captain of a slave ship, John Newton. Through the love of Jesus he became a true Christian , an Anglican priest and a leader in the movement to abolish slavery. That’s what love and reconciliation can do. I do not agree with the PB on many issues but on this one he was s right. August 17, 2017 at 9:51 pm A Prayer For Our Nation: “Eternal FATHER, who reigns from heaven and dwells in our midst, we pray for our Nation, The United States of America. Our national history speaks to the commitment our country has to the maintenance of a proper relationship with You, O LORD. We proclaim You as we pledge alliance to our National Flag in saying ‘one nation under God’ and in the coinage of our currency by declaring ‘in God we trust’. The bells, in the steeples of our churches, ring with hymns of joy proclaiming Your salvation to all peoples of the nation and the world, calling us to love one another. Help us to remember that love calls us to sacrifice our wills to Yours. To remember there is only one road that leads us to salvation and that all of us have fallen short of Your Glory. We are all sinners in Your Presence. To embrace the Cross of Your Christ and seek Your forgiveness in His Name. To reverence our common history and cherish the lessons You have taught us in it. To remember the sacrifices of those who gave their lives for our nation, in order that we might be free. To forgive those who disagree with us and mock the faith that You have bestowed upon our hearts. Forgive them, Holy LORD, for they know not what they do.“Holy FATHER, we also pray for the President of The United States of America, as he endeavors to govern us. Let us ever be mindful that he serves at Your Good Pleasure and that no government stands without Your Consent. You are the Judge of the Nations of the World. LORD Christ, You are the KING of kings and LORD of lords, You are the Lamb of God sacrificed for the sins of the World. Your Love for us is revealed in Your Cross. While we were sinners separated from the FATHER, You reconciled us to Him and washed us in Your Precious Blood to make us blameless in His Presence. Restore a clean heart in us, O LORD, and make us whole again as a Nation and as a United People. O LORD defend the principles on which this Nation was build. The Freedoms contained in our Bill of Rights, in our Constitution, are a reflection of our Founding Fathers belief in the Rights bestowed upon every human soul by Your Creative Hand. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.We pray that Your Will be done on earth as it is in Your Heaven. Keep us safe by day and night for You never slumber or sleep. We pray Your Blessings up us and our Nation, in the NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY SPRINT. Peace! Amen. Amen.” August 18, 2017 at 2:43 pm False facts?

Amen August 21, 2017 at 7:27 pm i prefer the Maunday Thursday command:”Love one another” which always posses two questions what is love and who is my other? Margo John C. Ratliff says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK A Message to the Church from the Presiding BishopWhere Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?In this moment – when the stain of bigotry has once again covered our land, and when hope, frankly, sometimes seems far away, when we must now remember new martyrs of the way of love like young Heather Heyer – it may help to remember the deep wisdom of the martyrs who have gone before.The year was 1967. It was a time not unlike this one in America. Then there were riots in our streets, poverty and unbridled racism in our midst, and a war far away tearing us apart at home. In that moment, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote a book, his last one, with a message that rings poignant today. It was titled, “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?”One of his insights then was that a moment of crisis is always a moment of decision. It was true then and is true now. Where do we go from here? Chaos? Indifference? Avoidance? Business as usual? Or Beloved Community?I’m a follower of Jesus of Nazareth because I believe the teachings, the Spirit, the Person, the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus have shown us the way through the chaos to true community as God has intended from the beginning.Through the way of love, he has shown us the way to be right and reconciled with the God and Creator of us all. Through his way of love, he has shown us the way to be right and reconciled with each other as children of God, and as brothers and sisters. In so doing, Jesus has shown us the way to become the Beloved Community of God. St. Paul said it this way: “In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself” and now he has entrusted us with “the message of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:19).I know too well that talk of Beloved Community, which Jesus was describing when he spoke of the kingdom of God in our midst, can be dismissed as nice but naive, idealistic yet unrealistic. I know that.But I also know this. The way of Beloved Community is our only hope. In this most recent unveiling of hatred, bigotry, and cruelty, as Neo-Nazis marched and chanted, “The Jews will not replace us,” we have seen the alternative to God’s Beloved Community. And that alternative is simply unthinkable. It is nothing short of the nightmare of human self-destruction and the destruction of God’s creation. And that is unthinkable, too.We who follow Jesus have made a choice to walk a different way: the way of disciplined, intentional, passionate, compassionate, mobilized, organized love intent on creating God’s Beloved Community on earth.Maybe it is not an accident that the Bible readings for the Holy Eucharist this Sunday (Genesis 45:1-15; Isaiah 56:1,6-8; Romans 11:1-2a, 29-32; and Matthew 15:21-28) all point toward and bear a message of God’s passionate desire and dream to create the Beloved Community in the human family and all of the creation.This Sunday and in the days and weeks to come, as we gather in community to worship God and then move about in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, social circles and more, we will be faced with a choice. I ask and invite us as congregations and individuals who are together the Episcopal Church of the Jesus Movement to intentionally, purposely, and liturgically rededicate ourselves to the way of Jesus, the work of racial reconciliation, the work of healing and dismantling everything that wounds and divides us, the work of becoming God’s Beloved Community. Resources that can assist us in doing this work are included with this message, including an adapted version of the Becoming Beloved Community vision that our church’s key leaders shared this spring. I urge you to spend time reflecting with them individually and in your churches.Where do we go from here? Maybe the venerable slave songs from our American past can help us. In the midst of their suffering, they used to sing …Walk together childrenAnd don’t you get weary.Cause there’s a great camp meetingIn the promised land.We will walk there … together. We will make this soil on which we live more and more like God’s own Promised Land. So God love you. God bless you. And let’s all keep the faith!The Most Rev. Michael B. CurryPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal Church Mark Kirchen says: August 18, 2017 at 8:29 am I wonder if the EC USA believes the part of Jesus teaching that says, “love your enemies, do good to those who spitefully use you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my namesake.” I am amazed at the denounciations of the “hate” groups in Charlotte and not one word of love is spoken toward them by this church. Jesus said, “if you love those who love you what thanks of you?” The EC USA has been a central figure in one of the worst efforts to stir up racial hatred in my long lifetime. I am ashamed of our priests and bishops who stained their vestments with the blood of the innocent in Charlotte. Frank OBrien says: August 18, 2017 at 4:48 pm Wouldn’t it be great if our elected leaders said exactly what we want them to say, and lead in a path where we are totally comfortable. I am personally willing to follow where the path is close enough to my ideal. Criticizing our leaders is not particularly beneficial to the passersby either. August 17, 2017 at 7:23 pm …the tribal thing has been going on for centuries…re-read slowly Genesis 49 and have a good laugh. This is ‘Jacobs blessing’ on the various tribes. Certainly, a lot of political theology and Jacobs’ words would not sit well nowadays but you will laugh, enjoy, pray, and think!Jewish teaching says, “…for the most part ‘we’ have lost all concept of the term blessing…” Ya think? The only tine we get blessed now is when we sneeze…Ha! Kinda like Jacob? Would have loved to be sitting around and hearing all the laughs while ‘this blessing’ was given to these people. The blessings of ‘Moses’ in Deuteronomy 33 on the tribes is similar…more fun but honest!Wish President Trump, maybe PB Curry also, would give us all some good laughs with their blessings on some of the whites, blacks, Chinese, and the other 9 +post-modern tribes. Are Patriarchal fathers did, with no political correctness! Maybe this could occur during our fierce conversations, with people submitting their takes on what they see? Enjoy and laugh!

I am sorry that some people read it that way. I plan on joining in that walk, wherever it takes me. It sometimes carries me into institutions where it is my privilege to be allowed to share the redemptive message of the Grace of God with people that, like me, did not deserve it. It challenges me when I look down and see swastikas and 88s tattooed on their arms. But that’s what grace is all about, and I manage to do it, but not through any power that comes of myself. And that’s the power that enables us to walk that walk towards the Promised Land, towards the Beloved Kingdom, to help make that kingdom present, here and now.

As one who has challenged some of my right-wing service friends on Facebook, I find that when they are thoroughly challenged with the words of people like Robert E. Lee, and confronted with the national sins of slavery, and asked about their actual thoughts on Christ’s love for all, that they have pulled their threads rather than continue a discussion they cannot win. What our Presiding Bishop, Michael Currey, is advocating is that we walk in Christ’s footsteps, that we advocate love rather than hate, that we confront hate with our love, and that we use our scriptural integrity to show a better way to live. There is nothing “socialist” in that calling. Rather, we are trying to show a better way of living, one which does not involve violence and hate based upon a racial concept which has no basis in biology (there is no artificial “race” of humans, no “white,” no “black,” no “Asian” in the human race; rather, we are all human together). In our church sermon today, we heard that it is very possible that we will again, and quite soon, see book-burning, and churches set on fire. Does this make white supremacists feel better? I remember the Birmingham bombings in the 1950s, and pray we don’t as a nation have to live through that again, but this is where we are headed if we don’t push back on the white supremacists now.

On early 2014, a client visited the office. She was on her early 30s, married 2 years ago, and has never lived outside Seoul. She was planning exodus from vicious circle of debt. (Many newly married couple of Seoul begin with small house of high monthly rent, and move to a bigger house after having baby. This means that the amount of debt grows dramatically before the couple’s paying back the money.) To make a shift from the vicious circle to the virtuous one, she and her husband decided to start a rural life with her single mother.Save this picture!© Shin Do KeunLuckily, she could buy a small estate near seaside town from her relative. The town has a beautiful name ‘Sowon-myeon Padori’ (meas ‘wish’ and ‘wave’ in Korean), and she wanted her house and a small guesthouse for dog lovers there. All through her life, the client always has been with her dogs, but she often had trouble with finding good stay for her and her dogs while traveling. She dreamed a small but comfortable place for all the dog lovers. The beautiful location, her decision to break a social convention, and a unique program of ‘special guesthouse for dog lovers’, all these conditions fascinated the architects, and the project went fast. The architects presented the name of the guesthouse Mungzip (means the Bow-wow house in Korean) and also suggested a side project making the dog house as well.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe main program of ‘the guesthouse for both dogs and travelers’ asked a playground for the guests. However, the site was on the sloppy ground, and naturally, the main task was how to make flat playground and making a good combination among the guesthouse, private residence, and the playground. After a series of meeting with the client, the suggestion of making a slight sloppy playground above a stonework wall was selected. The client happily agreed on putting budgets on the wall for making better environment for the dogs. However, the total budget was fixed, and the guesthouse and the private residence were suggested to be in one body. The guesthouse took the ground floor along the playground, and the private home was to be stacked aboveSave this picture!© Shin Do KeunThe next task was keeping privacy between the guesthouse and the private house. The private house was split into two masses of the married couple and her mother, and the axis was rotated and the masses were shifted aside. This minimized the overlapped volume of each program, and naturally lessens the noise problem. The small overlapped parts were assigned to the common area of each floor.Save this picture!SectionThe architects considered a few details for the guests and their dogs. For safety, the fence at the edge of the playground was made only with vertical members to prevent dogs climbing over. Every room and common kitchen faces the playground and has direct separate access. This helps dogs freely walk around the playground and the rooms. The tile finish of each room also helps dogs easily go into the room without having their feet cleaned. Every window hits the floor to give eyelevel view to the dogs.

Jajaus departs from the need of a compact home on a sloping plot. The low occupation of land for the floor plan leaves the south-west oriented part of the terrain for future use as a vegetable garden. Three levels define the project, different levels that offer different experiences of living.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Aitor OrtizThe one most related to the urban experience would be the entrance level of the house. This is the level of access to the house where the program for the family is deployed. It is the most defined program of the project, with the most traditional functions of a family house, placed in a rectangular space of 15 x 7 m.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Aitor OrtizAbove the entrance level is the greenhouse. The greenhouse is an empty space that will be occupied according to future needs. This space reminds of the attics of the Basque farmhouses where a space under a naked structure served as storage and as a drying space for the crops and fruits. A space that in turn transformed into the best place for games and children’s adventures. The translucency of the closure material of the greenhouse relates the space with the oak treetops that surround the house, and beyond, to the south-west, the views of the valley and the mountains of Bizkaia open up.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Aitor OrtizBelow the level of the family home, there is a guest apartment and a space of the house that will have a direct relationship with the garden.

Carefully restored neo-classical facades and a new covered courtyard rooted in traditional Russian architecture is crowned by an expansive contemporary upper extension to this Moscow apartment block, which has been reimagined by London-based AI Studio. Situated in the heart of Moscow within the historical “Garden Ring” road, the building was originally purpose-built as an apartment block in the 1870s but was promptly adopted as a popular local bathing house. Since the 20th century, it has largely been utilized as an administrative office, but Vesper Moscow – the developer who purchased the building in 2016 – had the vision to return it to its original residential use.Save this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoWhen restoring the space, AI Studio aimed to take an “honest” approach to the redevelopment – unashamedly allowing the new extension to contrast the original neo-classical style prevalent in central Moscow. “Although the original building is not formally listed [as a historic monument], we considered it to be a perfect example of classic Moscow architecture,” said the principal of AI Studio, Anton Khmelnitsky. “So, our approach was to sensitively restore the original fabric of the building, whilst designing an upper extension which provides a distinctive contemporary contrast.” The generous extension at the top of the building offers enough space for double-height penthouses within and features cladding of perforated Corten steel composite panels on the exterior.Save this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoFull height glazing boasts unparalleled views of the city. Meanwhile, on the ground floor, the covered courtyard presents a reception and communal area for residents, alongside retail opportunities. This communal area is flooded with natural light from circular glass skylights, which are installed in the elevated private roof terrace directly above the courtyard, exclusively for residents’ use. The freshly extended building named Sovremennik features a collection of 75 apartments ranging in size from 32 to 146 m2 and conveniently includes two floors of parking, with space for up to 43 cars.Save this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoThe Russian architectural bureau Front Architecture has created the interior design for public areas and apartments of the Sovremennik house in Moscow. The residential complex is located in the heart of old Moscow, nearby are famous theaters, which influenced the design idea – the interior is very intelligent and refers to the cultural and historical environment. Front Architecture decorated the lobby walls with corten steel panels which remind of theatre curtain folds. There are many exquisite details in the interior design – on the residential floors, Front Architecture designed the entrance doors of the apartments with decorative metal portals that visually increase the height of the doorways.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe apartment numbers on these metal frames are highlighted using laser cutting with illumination. The welcoming atmosphere of the lobby is created by a complex of thoughtful design solutions: it includes lighting, which provides several scenarios, exquisite wall decoration, carefully selected furniture in the waiting area. The apartments are designed in light colors with a predominance of smooth surfaces in combination with natural oak. The decoration is made using high-quality materials and fittings.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: Observations, Visions, and Considerations on the Impact of the…Call for SubmissionsUtebo Municipal Sports Area / IngennusSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Moscow, RussiaLocation to be used only as a reference.
