Facing to the approach to a shrine, the site is found just beside gigantic 200-year-old Japanese zelkova trees. How can we bring this richness of surroundings as not only invaluable experience in the characteristic context but also richness of feelings into the daily life? That’s the starting point for the project.Save this picture!Section BBAppropriately, the requirements from the client are two: Firstly, the house needs to be just simple and capable of any future changes with enjoyable aging process of the house in their lifetime. And the other is to make good use of the richness of the site: gigantic Japanese zelkova trees and the approach to the shrine.Save this picture!© Murai IsamuSince the Japanese zelkova trees are 20 meters in height, in a conventional way, we cannot get a view of verdant branches from mundane windows on the ground floor. Therefore living room has 3.5 meters of ceiling height, and moreover a large high-side band-window. At the both ends of the living room, there are loft spaces used also for a landing space of the stair.Save this picture!© Murai IsamuWe look up swinging trees in the breeze from the large band-window in everyday life, and even we can touch the trees directly from the terrace at the very end of the loft space.Save this picture!© Murai IsamuSunlight filtering through the trees enters in the living room in summer. Colorful leaves fall on the table in autumn. Consequently, the house is obtained the environment and experience as if we ate, slept, read and played in the forest.Save this picture!Section AAThe exterior is clad in western red cedar, the floor is covered with scaffolding cedar boards, and the stair is made with wrought iron works and lauan.

Killer Clown Trial Moved to 2021

first_imgThe woman who is accused of dressing up as a clown and killing the wife of the man she eventually married will not learn her fate until next year.The trial for Sheila Keen-Warren was scheduled to start this week. With the coronavirus pandemic halting jury trials, a judge decided on Thursday to move her trial to April 9, 2021.Keen-Warren is accused of killing Marlene Warren in Wellington back in 1990.The case went cold for decades until the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reopened it in 2014.Authorities arrested Keen-Warren in Virginia three years ago, after a DNA analysis connected her to the killing.Attorneys told the judge they were not able to conduct depositions, and their trial preparation stopped due to the virus.In May 1990, Marlene Warren answered her front door at her home at the Aero Club, when she was shot and killed by someone dressed as a clown and holding flowers.Keen-Warren married the victim’s husband, Michael Warren, in 2002 and moved to Virginia. Michael Warren has not been charged.Jury trials throughout the state remain hold at least through early July. A trial moratorium extension of at least another two months is anticipated in South Florida.“We’re going to socially distance in the fall,” Judge Joseph Marx said at Thursday’s hearing. “I can’t squeeze 14 jurors back in my jury room during the pendency of the case, or 12 jurors when they’re deliberating. So what do we do?”In addition, closing the courtroom for deliberations could also bring logistical issues, Judge Marx said.“I’m certainly hoping by March, we’ll be back to running as normal,” he added.Prosecutors already dropped their plans to pursue the death penalty for Keen-Warren, which means that her April 2021 trial should take less than three weeks.last_img read more
