It was thought as for it spoils reason it was decided to do it in 2 levels, this way to diminish the surface that deals with the area. The project is a 540cm cube (exterior measure) of wooden structure with two levels inside. Save this picture!It is thought as a housing of low energetic consumption, as what special care was had in the orientation, and the interior color, the location of the windows and the isolation. In this case, the isolation material gives a special characteristic to the façades and to the entire project. Save this picture!For the walls bales of straw were in use stuccoes in mud, given its high thermal efficiency and for being an abundant material in the zone. These are protected from the rain by plates of transparent polycarbonate, which leaves in evidence the materiality and zinc waved in the parts top and low. Save this picture!The cover is a green cover, with pasture, which prevents that the wind to strikes directly the surface, and take heat from it. This is considered a 5th façade for its also visible. The location of the windows was projected to allow abundant sun light in the interior in winter and a crossed flow of air to ventilate it in summer. The interior was decided to be painted white, in order that the natural light bounces and diminishes the need to use artificial light.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessTwo residences in New York / Gage ClemenceauSelected ProjectsSir Norman Foster on TED TalksArticles Share CopyAbout this officeAATA Associate ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodPlastic#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodNavidadHousesChilePublished on May 11, 2008Cite: “Guest House / AATA Associate Architects” 11 May 2008.

The Herringbone House is on a quaint street on the borders of Islington and Hackney, sitting amongst a cute row of Victorian Terraces, a railway tavern and the small local stone and Gothic church (St Jude and St Pauls). Just away from the hubbub of Kingsland Road, it is neatly packed onto an awkward wedge-shaped site which used to play host to a garage / out-building / storage shed. Save this picture!© Mike Tsang PhotographsThe house comprises of two volumes: a gable-ended volume which is thrust to the very front of the site facing the street, and a set back rectangular volume, which both co-join into one space as the site narrows towards the rear. (see image 2) The light shade of herringbone brickwork, articulates the houses’ two volumes and frames the picture windows setting the house apart from the other buildings on the street.Save this picture!SectionAt both ends of the house two walled courtyard spaces bring natural light and air in to the space. Inside, the large glazed openings flood the building with natural light; enhanced by the light material palette of limed wood, white matt marble and pearl coloured brick and the open layout enables views and light to flood through the length of house. The rooms then peel back, through pivoting floor-to-ceiling windows, onto private, walled courtyard garden ‘rooms’ reflecting the inspiration Zoe has also drawn from inward-looking Chinese courtyard house typologies or ‘Siheyuan’.Save this picture!© Mike Tsang PhotographsProject gallerySee allShow lessSilo-top Studio / O-OFFICE ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Gravity Stool by Jólan van der Wiel, magnetic innovationArticles Share The Herringbone House / Atelier Chanchan 2013 Projects Photographs The Herringbone House / Atelier ChanchanSave this projectSaveThe Herringbone House / Atelier Chanchan Save this picture!© Mike Tsang Photographs+ 18 Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/489955/the-herringbone-house-atelier-chanchan Clipboard Housescenter_img Year:  ArchDaily Year:  CopyAbout this officeAtelier ChanchanOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on March 27, 2014Cite: “The Herringbone House / Atelier Chanchan” 27 Mar 2014.

A project in the venerable tradition of alterations and additions to heritage houses – a testing ground for Architect’s ideas.  This adaptive re-use of a double fronted Victorian house incorporates a re-working of the existing house, a new pavilion forming a central court yard, a garage and workshop building to the rear laneway and a small swimming pool.  The house is distinctive for its mature Oak tree which towers above the garden and a red steel brise-soleil which performs many functions, including that of sun-shading.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe began with the elements that make a domestic environment functional and dignified; zoning, acoustics, privacy, aspect and comfort.  In this instance the site and existing dwelling suggested a courtyard arrangement.  The courtyard is bounded by sitting rooms at either end with the long edge incorporating the kitchen and dining room. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellIn this way the family can be apart but always feel proximate and all rooms have garden aspects.  The first floor faces north and provides accommodation for two children.  The elevation of this element provides a backdrop to the central courtyard and thus provides the dominant architectural expression of the house. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellAs such it needed to form a cohesive and singular backdrop but also accommodate complex, ventilated glazing for a variety of rooms and provide sun shading and privacy from below and above.  The brise-soleil was able to effectively perform all these duties whilst also having visual depth and providing texture and complexity.Save this picture!Save this picture!Within the conventional parameters of this type of project, we look to be progressive in an approach to visual qualities.  Our Clients were enthusiastic about colour and so we developed a palette which could inform all of our design decisions.  We chose an oxidised red colour for the steel elements, including the large format sliding doors and fixed glazing as well as the brise-soleil to the first floor. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellAccompanying this are terra cotta tiles and Douglas Fir, both of which complement the warm, earthy red of the steel.  The interiors range from the dramatic to the tranquil using concentrations of colour in varying intensities.  The garden, devised with Amanda Oliver, consists of areas to the front and rear of the house as well as a courtyard and a roof garden so that a living aspect is always available.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe investigated how the familiar spatial arrangements of the back-yard addition could be enlivened without falling into an uncomfortably over-expressive architecture, or mullet architecture (business in the front with a party out the back). Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe proposed elements with a large-scale graphic quality which could sit comfortably alongside the austere Victorian forms; the sculptural free-standing chimney, the enigmatic symbols of the window and door mullions, the muscular concrete roof form and most especially the grid of the brise-soleil.  Unexpected visual variety emerges everywhere in this house, from floor finishes to joinery. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThere is a concerted effort to restrain expressive excess, maintain formal and material cohesion throughout the house, resist conventional lifestyle architecture blandness and amplify a sense of joyousness and delight.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessWeflow Hostel / JH-AtelierSelected ProjectsPoint Roadknight Holiday House / Atelier WagnerSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Derek Swalwelllast_img read more

Trade and Farm Bill Atop NASDA Agenda in D.C.

first_img By Eric Pfeiffer – Feb 7, 2018 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Trade and Farm Bill Atop NASDA Agenda in D.C. Previous articleThe State of the Rural Economy is “Fragile”Next articleMorning Outlook Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Trade and Farm Bill Atop NASDA Agenda in D.C. ISDA Director Bruce Kettler on Trade and 2018 Farm BillThe National Association of State Departments of Agriculture held its Winter Policy Conference at the end of January in Washington, D.C. Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler was among the attendees. Trade and the 2018 Farm Bill were atop the agenda. Kettler says despite some reports, the overall mood in the room was optimistic regarding NAFTA. “Overall, from a NAFTA standpoint, there’s optimism. It’s guarded, it’s not gleeful necessarily. But what I think everybody understands is how important those two trading partners are to our country in terms of its agriculture output.”Just how important is NAFTA to Indiana? According to americansforfarmersandfamilies.com, out of the $1.4 Billion in total Food and Ag product exports in 2016, $573 Million, or 42%, went to NAFTA partners.Kettler says they spent time on the hill speaking with staff members of Senators Young and Donnelly as well as staff members from the Senate and House Ag Committees regarding the 2018 Farm Bill. He says there is reasonable optimism that they may get a bill marked up by Spring. One thing Kettler says we need to pay attention to is disaster relief for the cotton and dairy industries. “If they get some disaster relief put in outside of the Farm Bill that’ll help from a funding standpoint. If they don’t and something goes into the Farm Bill, that’s going to take a lot of dollars away. There (won’t) be new dollars in the Farm Bill.”last_img read more

US immigration urged to grant protection to threatened journalist who fled across border

first_img Reporters Without Borders urges the US immigration authorities to grant an emergency residence permit – followed as soon as possible by political asylum – to Ricardo Chávez Aldana, a radio journalist based in the northern border city of Ciudad Juárez, who was forced to flee across the border with his family to the Texan city of El Paso on 10 December.“The US immigration authorities must be aware of the level of violence in Ciudad Juárez, which has affected security on the US side of the border as well,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Chávez and his family would probably have been murdered if they had not rushed to cross the border. Reporting is a high-risk job when you cover organised crime and Chávez is not the first journalists to opt for exile, and will not the last one. For the sake of his safety, he must be allowed to enter the United States when necessary.”Chávez, who works for Radio Cañon, fled with his mother, wife and son across the border to El Paso after getting a series of phone calls threatening his family, several Mexican newspapers said. On 9 December, the day before he fled, he reported on the air that two of his nephews, Diego and Argenis Chávez Luis, aged 15 and 17 respectively, were among four youths who had just been killed in a shooting in Ciudad Juárez. In his report, he condemned the failure of the authorities to arrest those responsible and the freedom with which gunmen operate in the city.Initially determined to defy the threats, Chávez changed his mind and decided to flee although he does not have a passport. “Before crossing the border with my family, I knew we would be arrested by the immigration authorities but it is better to be locked up than dead,” he told Radio Cañon colleagues by telephone from the US side of the border, according to a report in the newspaper La Jornada.Chávez’s story recalls that of Emilio Gutiérrez Soto, the correspondent of the regional newspaper El Diario, who fled across the border on 15 June 2008 after being threatened by the Mexican army and was held until 29 January 2009 in a detention centre in El Paso.

Brutally hot and dry conditions fanning the flames out West

first_img(FRESNO, Calif) — At least 60 wildfires are burning in the U.S., including the Carr Fire in Northern California that’s already proven deadly.Dry, gusty winds are expected to keep spreading the fires out West, where brutal heat again is in the forecast.Fresno, California, has seen three straight weeks of at least 100 degrees, tying a record expected to be broken Friday. A record-high 91 was recorded in Seattle.The low temp in Death Valley, California, was 100 degrees on Thursday.Fire conditions in Northern California and southern Oregon and southwestern Wyoming are dire as heat advisories and warnings are again expected in much of the West.There were almost 100 damaging storm reports on Thursday ranging from the Plains into the eastern Great Lakes.Wind gusts in parts of Ohio topped out at more than 60 mph, and now this front is moving into the Northeast, which is threatened with damaging storms all the way from Washington to New England. Damaging winds, hail and tornadoes are possible.Additional rainfall could soak the already-waterlogged mid-Atlantic, meaning more flash floods in the region are possible.As far as the rest of the U.S., a large portion of the Plains may see severe weather Friday in the form of damaging winds, hail or tornadoes.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
