The Three Angle House has been designed specifically to make the most of the three stunning views offered on this site in Mount Martha. Architect Christopher Megowan, Director of Megowan Architectural, was engaged to work on the project. He explained the moment he first visited the site “I stood on my car and turned around and I was blown away. It’s one thing to have one view on a site but three uniquely stunning and different views. To the north, you can see Mornington and Port Phillip Bay, the greenery of Mount Martha Reserve and Point Nepean to the west, and to the northwest the Melbourne CBD on the horizon. The decision to build the house around these views was instantaneous and the agreement was in unison with the clients”.Save this picture!© Elise ScottSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Elise ScottOwners Jo and Colin Turner knew they were not going to build a run-of-the-mill home for their dream seachange home. “We wanted something so light and airy and it’s exactly what we have got”. Vinnie Price and Matt Stonehouse from KabSav Projects were engaged based on their solid track record for producing exceptionally unexpected homes, including previous successful team collaboration, the Two Angle House. From Kabsav’s perspective, “We wake up each morning looking for that next challenge, obviously being Three Angles this had that challenge”.Save this picture!© Elise ScottSave this picture!© Elise ScottThe main entry sets the tone for the home and was intentionally sunken into the hillside. When one descends to the front door the entry to the home opens up to a stunning reveal of a timber-framed view across Jullul Bay. The warmth of blackbutt timber plays with the textural nature of concrete throughout and a feature cantilevered steel staircase carries you up to the main living spaces and the most elevated vantage point over the bay that the site had to offer.Save this picture!© Elise ScottIndeed the language of unexpected but intentional angles has been woven throughout the inspiration of the house. An angular handrail is recessed into a concrete wall, stair treads, and insitu concrete benchtops taper and flare and a triangular clerestory skylight is a statement in the open living area.Save this picture!© Elise ScottSave this picture!© Elise ScottThe outstanding quality of this home is the exceptional use of natural light. The spaces change throughout the day as the sun moves from the kitchen and study in the east across the living areas to a stunning westerly sunset over the private deck off the master bedroom in the evening. Nearly every space is animated by the constantly changing canvases of the three carefully framed views. “It’s an incredible home to watch a storm roll in from, the whole sky puts on a show, and given the elevated position you feel immersed in it,” says Megowan. “The living spaces are intentionally warm and robust, they’re active spaces to entertain in, engage in and wear in with coastal life while the master suite takes on a softer, quieter and more luxurious character, designed as spaces to retreat to and reflect in.”Save this picture!© Elise ScottJo and Colin are are thrilled with how the team worked together and felt involved throughout. A key part of this success was how they proactively researched every material and product that Megowan Architectural put forward which meant decisions were confidently made, and that work was coordinated and installed efficiently by Kabsav. “It is fantastic to work with a client that is open and receptive to new ideas and are engaged with every step” says Megowan.Save this picture!© Elise ScottSave this picture!© Elise Scott“When it comes down to it, this forever home had to do more than just hit the brief and budget, it had to frame and magnify the lifestyle that the site so clearly offered” says Megowan. “So to us, this Three Angle House is a true success and certainly a project that we were very proud to be a part of.”Save this picture!© Anthony RichardsonProject gallerySee allShow lessMéMo Médiathèque of Monein / OECO ArchitectesSelected ProjectsMajimaya Confectionery Tool Shop / KAMITOPENSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Elise Scott+ 56Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” Electrician: last_img read more

Creating 2D dichalcogenide structures using chemical vapor deposition


first_imgCredit: Nature (2018). DOI: 10.1038/nature25155 A team of researchers from the University of South Florida and Florida State University has developed a one-pot synthesis technique for creating 2-D multi-junction heterostructures. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes their technique and why they believe it will be useful for building future high-speed electronics and optoelectronic devices. Weijie Zhao and Qihua Xiong with Nanyang Technological University in Singapore offer a News and Views piece in the same journal issue outlining the work done by the team in Florida. Explore further Journal information: Nature As scientists continue to study the possible benefits and uses of 2-D semiconductors, they have found that they must also study heterostructures—tiny structures that serve as interfaces between 2-D semiconductors and other 2-D semiconductors. Prior research has narrowed the options down to vertical or lateral heterostructures. Current one-step methods for creating lateral heterostructures lack flexibility—they can only produce one type of heterostructure—and two-step (or multi-step) methods involve making many changes to precursors and reaction chambers, making them difficult to carry out. In this new effort, the team in Florida has found a way to create multiple types of heterostructures using a one-pot technique that allows several steps to be carried out in a single reaction chamber.The new approach, as Zhao and Xiong note, is based on chemical vapor deposition—they expose a substrate to a gaseous precursor, which deposits heterostructures as part of a reaction process. The new technique employs the use of a carrier gas to bring transition-metal dichalcogenides, generically written as MX2, into contact with the substrate—in this case, 2-D MoX2 and WX2. Furthermore, they found that the heterostructures that were grown due to the reactions in the chamber could be switched by changing the carrier gas. This approach produced multiple types of heterostructures in a single reaction chamber. The group looked at their results with high-resolution transmission electron microscopy to make sure the heterostructures grew as expected, and report that they did. They also conducted spectroscopic analysis of their work to show that the junctions were made in a way that was reproducible. They then created primitive electrical devices to show that they worked as intended.Zhao and Xiong note that because their technique is relatively simple, it appears their approach has the potential to be useful in manufacturing desired devices including flexible electronics.

Sahoo et al. One-pot growth of two-dimensional lateral heterostructures via sequential edge-epitaxy, Nature (2018). DOI: 10.1038/nature25155AbstractGrowing lateral heterostructures of two-dimensional (2D) dichalcogenide structures via chemical vapour deposition opens up new opportunities for building 2D electronic and optoelectronic devices. But it is challenging to make multiple spatially defined lateral heterostructures. This paper reports a straightforward one-pot approach to growing 2D multi-junction heterostructures by switching the gas environment in the presence of water vapour flowing over the solid sources of both MoX2 and WX2 powders placed in the same boat. The gas environment regulates the precursor species in the vapour phase via precursor volatilization and water-induced oxidation and can thus control their preferential deposition. Humberto Gutiérrez and colleagues use this technique to create multiple heterostructures of MoX2 and WX2 in one reactor and to make alloyed sulfide/selenide heterostructures.
