PivotDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesText description provided by the architects. The owner of this property came to us looking for a personal retreat inspired by a home lost to fire decades earlier in the hills of Appalachia. Our task was not to recreate it but rather to give its spirit new form in the Pacific Northwest. Taking inspiration from its remote site in the San Juan Islands, our team envisioned a series of simple stone volumes. From that concept emerged the main house and a guest house, each responding to its own unique location on the site. Together they provide friends and family with comfortable accommodation while offering a sanctuary for the owner at the main home.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottTaking full advantage of sweeping views of Puget Sound, the main home is sited on a small plateau high on top of a steeply-sloping hillside. With a view on one side and a road on the other, the site suggested a stone plinth and stone wall to form the base and rear of the house. A pair of stone fireplace volumes supports the concept, rising together to form the boundaries of a central stone staircase that separates the main level into public and private realms. Atop the low stone base then perches a light-filled wood structure. Its simple shed roof tips low in front to protect from the summer sun while offering space for a photovoltaic array above. Winter light, in turn, penetrates deep into the main living spaces through a wall of glass running continuously across building’s south elevation. The relative height difference between this wood pavilion and that of the adjacent stone volume also allows consistent north light to flood into the primary living spaces via a series of clerestory windows, which release warm air high on the leeward side of the structure.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Kevin ScottThe site for the guest house came with more significant technical challenges. The concept begins with a stone tower set near the center of the small circular parcel. Rising high above steeply-sloping grade, it acts as a three-dimensional datum through which feature program elements are allowed to puncture. The main entry offers ease of access to the project’s public spaces through a simple, full-height opening cut into the stone volume’s north elevation. The stair, comprised of a concrete base below large casement windows, allows natural light to fill the main stairway as it leads guests toward the bedrooms located at the home’s lower level. Opposite the entry, the view deck extends from the great room, cantilevering far above grade. The dining room, finally, was conceived as a three-sided glass object floating in a forest of trees. Two steel beams carry its entire weight and extend deep into the floor system. To enhance the concept, our team preserved trees only a few feet from the dining room by developing custom retaining walls capable of avoiding critical root zones.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottTaken together, the buildings provide two related but distinct ways of appreciating the beauty of this site.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottProject gallerySee allShow lessCover / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSelected Projects2 Courtyard House / Robertson DesignSelected Projects Share Geotechnical Engineer: Island Tree Doctor LPD Engineering Arborist: Save this picture!© Kevin Scott+ 25Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910998/hillside-sanctuary-hoedemaker-pfeiffer Clipboard Hillside Sanctuary / Hoedemaker PfeifferSave this projectSaveHillside Sanctuary / Hoedemaker Pfeiffer Lead Architects: Landscape Architect: last_img read more

The forest is composed of Japanese larch trees with straight vertical silhouettes, and the houses stand calmly and sparsely in the forest. This house, “Gradation in the Forest”, is part of a collection of small spaces, as if the house might melt into the environment of the woods. There are no big towns within walking distance and residents have more time to spend in the house. So, various spaces were prepared in order to make the living environment rich.Save this picture!© Yukio YoshimuraIn “Gradation in the Forest”, a gradual change of the quality of spaces has been made, as shown in the picture of “Metamorphosis” by M.C. Escher. In this house, the spaces, having various characteristics, exist as the process of continuous changes with ambiguous boundaries. Many spaces have maintained respectively the unique characteristics of each space.Save this picture!© Yukio YoshimuraSave this picture!© Yukio YoshimuraMoreover, many spaces are smoothly sewn together. So, the boundaries of spaces may be melted away. This principle is reflected in each aspect of the design, such as connection methods of spaces, structural methods, finishing materials, windows, walls, and roofs, etc.Save this picture!© Yukio YoshimuraSave this picture!© Yukio YoshimuraMoreover, the outline of the building is decided by the arrangement and the placement of various cubes. I would like to give the unit space both the centrifugal character with repeatability and the centripetal character with independence. Different cubes have different structural methods. The reinforced concrete structure, steel frame structure, wooden structure, and so on. In addition, various finishing materials are used properly for each cube. My design has the intention to amplify the character of each area. Plywood, wood board, cement board, exposed concrete, Japanese paper, gypsum board, glass, metal plate, and so on.Save this picture!© Yukio YoshimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse AC / HormaSelected ProjectsArchitectural Modules for Service Areas / DMDV arquitetosSelected Projects Share Photographs Architects: Kotoaki Asano Architect & Associates Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/937991/gradation-in-the-forest-house-kotoaki-asano-architect-and-associates Clipboard Gradation in the Forest House / Kotoaki Asano Architect & Associates Lead Architect: “COPY” Gradation in the Forest House / Kotoaki Asano Architect & AssociatesSave this projectSaveGradation in the Forest House / Kotoaki Asano Architect & Associateslast_img read more

A little house built on a piece of land in the neighborhood of Santa Celina, in the south of Mar del Plata. The area is known for its abundance of trees and greenery. The property is centrally located on a Pampean-Argentinian block. The site is unique as it contains an atypical level drop towards the main street. To the front, a wide tree-lined street. To the back, facing north, a picturesque green pedestrian space. The house is compact. Although it has limited floor space, the design manages to offer multiple circulation paths which all converge in a central semi-sunken courtyard.Save this picture!© ObralindaSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© ObralindaAn impressive structure encloses the house. Both the design and construction methods are simple. The front and rear facades feature a series of inverted concrete beams that cantilever from the slab on the roof level offering an eye-catching design element. These beams are supported by a double line of structural steel columns which are laid parallel to the property line, offering both a design feature and a structural purpose. A concrete canopy, on the second floor, folds towards the site boundaries forming an arch, defining and enclosing the whole space. A deck, on level one, is hung through a steel tensor system exposing a series of double-height columns. The structure is the essence of the house, without the requirement for additional decorative elements.Save this picture!© ObralindaThe concept of this project was based on the exploration of spatial design. Vanishing points are featured throughout the space under a single plane: the concrete canopy. Levels & limits are blurred, there is no inside or outside, and space flows freely without constraints. The house presents itself as a meaningful space in which all the different components complement each other. The build represents the art of minimalism.Save this picture!© ObralindaSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© ObralindaLa casa se desarrolla sin definición de niveles, se está en el espacio.

Banana sells for £6,000 at charity auction

first_imgBanana sells for £6,000 at charity auction One single banana has sold for £6,000 and three cakes for almost £40,000 at charity auctions organised by Muslim students at London universities.The money was raised as part of Charity Week, a national fundraising initiative largely run by university Islamic Societies across the country. All the money raised during Charity Week goes towards supporting children’s projects run by Islamic Relief around the world. Projects include building schools in Mali, refurbishing orphanages in Syria and helping children to go school in Afghanistan.Students from multiple university societies pooled their resources to bid for the banana at University College London (UCL), with fellow university students contributing to reach the final amount.The most expensive cake was sold by UCL for £16,000; St George’s sold their cake for £14,400 and King’s College raised £8,000.

WPRA Finds Caltrans’ SR-710 Draft EIR to be “Grossly Inadequate”

first_img Business News First Heatwave Expected Next Week The California Department of Transportation’s SR-710 North Study Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) misrepresents data in favor of the tunnel alternative and fails to address substantial environmental and community impacts, a Pasadena residents group said Friday.These and other findings were delivered to Caltrans this week as part of the West Pasadena Residents’ Association’s formal comments on the DEIR. The comments have also been published online at www.wpra.net.“After careful analysis, it is clear that the SR710 DEIR is report is grossly inadequate and should not be adopted,” said Geoffrey Baum, president of the West Pasadena Residents’ Association (WPRA).WPRA said it assembled a team of experts who worked for the better part of a year to address and comment on Caltrans’ massive, 50,000+ page environmental impact document. More than two dozen expert scientists, environmentalists, attorneys, university professors, engineers, planners, policy experts, legal experts, transportation experts, CEQA/NEPA experts, and historic preservation activists from USC, JPL, and other institutions helped draft the WPRA’S 430+ page comment document, the group said.These experts found inadequacies in almost all of the DEIR’s sections, including growth, tunnel boring machine failure, land use, community impacts, traffic, transportation, air quality, noise, hydrology, water quality, geology, energy, and more.The team found that, from its inception, the SR-710 Study environmental process has been improperly conducted in a manner to justify and sustain a decision already made: the freeway tunnel as the preferred alternative.Caltrans and Metro’s bias in favor of the tunnel continues in the DEIR with “the selection of the Study Area boundaries and alternatives, the bundling of options, the deferral or complete failure to address large environmental impacts for the tunnel alternative, data averaging, and the selective presentation and manipulation of data,” Baum and WPRA vice president and 710 Team lead Sarah Gavit wrote in a letter to Caltrans.The SR-710 Analysis of the Alternatives is also grossly deficient, the group said. For example, the SR-710 Study fails to consider a multimodal alternative, despite numerous community inputs to do so during the scoping process. This is egregious particularly in light of the 1999 injunction prohibiting a 710 surface freeway extension due to Caltrans’ failure to consider a multimodal low build alternative. Remnants of historic 710 extension aspirations, these transportation and safety nightmares have divided and plagued these communities for more than a half century. Moreover, the Draft EIR/EIS proposes several tunnel alternative options that are not credible. This includes the ‘no truck’ option, which is not enforceable either in the near term or future, and the single-bore tunnel option, which is not reasonable because it exceeds margins of safety and passes unacceptable fire and accident risks onto tunnel users.WPRA expects Caltrans to respond in full to these and other comments before issuing a Final Environmental Impact Report.Founded in 1962, the West Pasadena Residents’ Association (WPRA) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the character of southwest Pasadena and the quality of life throughout Pasadena.
