Gracious Rooms

Автор:

In her first book, the South’s most inviting designer explores her principles for creating a beautiful home rich with comfort and warmth. Barbara Westbrook has been designing classically inspired homes full of Southern charm and a European touch for more than twenty years. A native of Virginia, Westbrook grew up accompanying her mother to antique shops and was introduced by her to Virginia’s rich architectural legacy. With a design vocabulary that ranges from casual American to formal English to French modern, Westbrook’s homes share a welcoming elegance, whether it is a country cottage or a penthouse apartment. In Gracious Rooms, she sets out her principles for creating a house rich with both polish and patina. Walking the reader through a dozen stunning homes—light-filled lake retreats, contemporary houses, and historic mansions—Westbrook shares her accessible, appealing ideas. From the judicious use of symmetry to the importance of including natural elements in a room, utilizing color to unify spaces within a house, and setting a mood with materials, Gracious Rooms is rich with advice and inspiration.

Stormwater Characteristics of Greenroof Trays and Bags

Stormwater Characteristics of Greenroof Trays and Bags

Автор:

The research sought to determine the performance of green-roof bags and trays to reduce storm-water peak discharge. In addition, the green roof equipment’s ability to lag the peak discharge and drainage times were also assessed. A laboratory simulation of Johannesburg’s rainfall pattern, of short and intense storms, was conducted on a model scale roof. Results show that the green-roof installation of plants, soil, hessian jute bags, and geo-membrane performed the best in the most intense rainfall conditions by reducing the peak discharge by up to 44%. The hessian jute bags also consistently increased the peak lag time and drainage time. The plastic modular trays were ineffective in reducing discharge at high rainfall intensities. In fact the trays increased the rate of runoff of water from a roof due to the narrow flow channels formed by the tray’s geometry. The research proved that green roofs can be effective water retention and management devices and showed, unexpectedly, that green-roofs can be used to quickly channel water away from roofs. Therefore the research gave comprehensive and measurable information on the behavior of Storm water on green roofs using bags and trays.
