A white box floating on a concrete base. This sentence summarizes the proposed volumetric composition for the Lago Norte house project. The central idea of the project is to highlight the upper part of the lower part of the residence, like two independent universes. The ground floor, with a more open and integrated character, has a little delimitation between the rooms, only demarcated by differences in height, from the central hall of the room, up to the contiguous rooms, kitchen, barbecue, balcony.Save this picture!Planta – Pavimento Térreo. The upper floor is configured “as an apartment inside the house”, in the couple’s own words. A space developed for rest where privacy and silence are valued. The house seeks different forms of dialogue with the environment, respecting the solar orientation and the context. The relationship with the access road, facing the west, occurs through a generous indentation, that allows the accommodation of the garage in the ground floor, and by an abstract rectangular plan, of white color, separated from the base by a horizontal continuous trait.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaThe bottom of the lot is facing the main avenue of the neighborhood, about 2m higher than the threshold. The natural drop gives privacy to the lower deck but exposes the second floor to the movement and noise of the vehicles. There, the nascent orientation was used to illuminate and ventilate the rooms, which can be sheltered by sliding metallic brises. The predominantly spring-oriented windows also favor the region’s dominant natural ventilation and protect from rainy winds.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaSave this picture!Insolation DiagramSave this picture!© Joana FrançaProject gallerySee allShow lessDong-Ping Wong on +Pool and Rendering StylesArticlesThe Age of Travel is OverArticles Share CopyHouses•Brasilia, Brazil Houses Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeCoDA arquitetosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrasiliaBrazilPublished on June 27, 2019Cite: “11 House / CoDA arquitetos” [Casa 11 / CoDA arquitetos] 27 Jun 2019.

The history and splendor of Wyoming’s natural environment factor heavily into the design of Lefty Ranch. Nestled perfectly between the Snake River and valley proper — with panoramic views of the Tetons to the west and north and Gros Ventre mountains to the east — Lefty Ranch speaks directly to the pond it borders, as well as the big timber and historic corrals that dot its 35 acres. A dramatic approach teases views of the home through a sea of trees before carrying visitors over a bridge and onto the property. While most ponds in Teton County require a 50-foot buffer between home and water, this man-made body of water has the freedom to forego that restriction.Save this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographySave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographyThe resulting interplay, which flows from the living area to a partially covered heroic porch and eventually to the water’s edge, spotlights the deliberate connection between the home and its surrounding environment. The structure itself was crafted around an unconventional residential program. Rather than breaking the home into a series of smaller components housed in distinct pavilions, everything at Lefty Ranch is linked under a single roof that cradles an interior courtyard.Save this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographySave this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographyThe shape is reminiscent of a horseshoe, entirely consistent in its roll from south to west. Inspired by a series of existing corrals along the northern edge, the house represents not only the history of the property, but the region as a whole. Here, the simple shed form has been mimicked and abstracted, providing deeply carved overhangs that create shelter and a signal for entry. The private program is comprised of offices, a gym, and the home’s lone bedroom.Save this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographySave this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographyThe living room features a move known affectionately as the ‘pull tab’— a hole cut into the ceiling to provide patterns of light that trace the room during daylight hours. This design choice doubles as a clever formal move, where views from the south elevation provide undulating ridges and valleys in the building’s profile. Locally quarried limestone transitions from the exterior to an indoor fireplace, while the remaining materials palette (white oak, cedar siding, and glass) presents an elegant and restrained composition. With meticulous attention to setting and history, CLB has conjured a contextually inspired architectural gem that eschews coastal trends in favor of the singular voice of the modern American west.Save this picture!© Matthew Millman PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessVIRA Office Building / Alidoost and PartnersSelected ProjectsCasa Lucciola Renovation / Rafael Schmid ArchitektenSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Case Window and Door, Holly Hunt, Ann Sacks Porcelain Tile, Brandner Design, Daltile Slimlite Porcelain, Hans Wagner ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/937369/lefty-ranch-house-clb-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeCLB ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJacksonOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on April 15, 2020Cite: “Lefty Ranch House / CLB Architects” 15 Apr 2020.

The Bench of Justice J. B. Pardiwala and Justice I. J. Vora issued this interim direction following various complaints of coercive recovery by GST officials during the search operations. Other directions issued by the Court Since the officers of the afore-mentioned departments who were asked to join the video conference did join, but at a very later stage, they were unable to witness the discussion that took place between the Court and Devang Vyas (Additional Solicitor General of India), the Court passed an interim order issuing the following directions: – Even if the assessee comes forward to make voluntary payment by filing Form DRC­03, the assessee should be asked/ advised to file such Form DRC­03 on the next day after the end of search proceedings and after the officers of the visiting team have left the premises of the assessee. The facility of filing complaint/ grievance after the end of search proceedings should be made available to the assessee if the assessee was forced to make payment in any mode during the pendency of the search proceedings. If complaint/ grievance is filed by assessee and the officer is found to have acted in defiance of the afore­stated directions, then strict disciplinary action should be initiated against the concerned officer. The matter has now been posted for further hearing on Thursday (18th February).During the course of previous hearing in this matter, while noting that “the facts of the case are very gross and shocking”, the Gujarat High Court on Friday (05th February) had pulled up the GST officials for allegedly “coercing and pressurizing” a person to transfer an amount of almost Rs.9 Crore to the account of the department. The Bench of Justice J. B. Pardiwala and Justice Ilesh J. Vora had termed the alleged coercive recovery tactics as “Shocking” while hearing the plea of one Kanubhai Manilal (Proprietor, Bharat Acid And Chemicals) who alleged before the Court that he was summoned and under the guise of interrogation, he was kept under detention for almost a period of 33 hours. Importantly, the Court had also invited the attention of the respondents to the detailed order in the case of Paresh Nathalal Chauhan vs. State of Gujarat in (2020) 79 GST 105. This case deals with search and seizure operations conducted by GST officials. In this matter, the Court had held that the act of GST officers to stay at taxpayer’s House for 8 days was illegal.

Churchill Downs Incorporated Announces Strategic Update Regarding Arlington International Racecourse

first_imgChurchill Downs Incorporated Announces Strategic Update Regarding Arlington International Racecourse GlobeNewswireAugust 28, 2019 (Arlington International Racecourse Declines to Apply for Gaming License; Will Conduct Horse Racing in 2020 and 2021 and Apply for a Sports Betting License)LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Churchill Downs Incorporated (“CDI”) (CHDN), the owner of Arlington International Racecourse in Arlington Heights, Illinois (“Arlington”), announced today that Arlington did not apply to the Illinois Gaming Board for a slot machine and table game license under the recently enacted Illinois Gaming Act.“Notwithstanding our steadfast commitment to the Illinois Thoroughbred racing industry and despite the good faith intentions of everyone involved in the passage of the Illinois Gaming Act, the economic terms under which Arlington would be granted a casino gaming license do not provide an acceptable financial return and we cannot responsibly proceed,” said Bill Carstanjen, the CEO of CDI. “The Chicagoland market has seen a significant proliferation of video gaming terminals over the last several years and now faces the potential introduction of five new gaming facilities as well as increased gaming positions at existing casinos and video gaming outlets. Arlington would enter this market with an effective tax rate that would be approximately 17.5% – 20% higher than the existing Chicagoland casinos due to contributions to the Thoroughbred purse account. This disadvantage in a hyper-competitive gaming market, coupled with substantial licensing and reconciliation fees and new, unviable horse racing requirements in the Illinois Gaming Act, makes the construction of a casino at Arlington financially untenable. It is with a heavy heart that we conclude that we can’t make this work.”Arlington will conduct horse racing in 2020 and 2021 and also will apply for a sports betting license while longer-term alternatives are explored. CDI and the team at Arlington will continue to work with legislative and community stakeholders, as well as Arlington’s customers, employees and horsemen to find a solution that takes into account the many constituents across the State of Illinois who depend on horse racing for their livelihoods. All options will be considered, including moving the racing license to another community in the Chicagoland area or elsewhere in the state.CDI remains heavily invested in the State of Illinois. Rivers Casino Des Plaines (“Rivers”), of which CDI owns approximately 61%, has applied to add up to 800 new gaming positions and will expand its facility, which will provide incremental tax revenue to the state and job opportunities for its citizens.About Churchill Downs IncorporatedChurchill Downs Incorporated (“CDI”) (CHDN), headquartered in Louisville, Ky., is an industry-leading racing, online wagering and gaming entertainment company anchored by our iconic flagship event – The Kentucky Derby.
