In private areas large glazing and balconies are privileged as well, allowing contact with the exterior and framing a perspective of the world around us. Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoVolumetrically, this solution presents the residential home as a game. It highlights an articulation of volumes, with variations between opaque and glassed surfaces, adjusting the programmatic content in a careful volumetric composition. Distinguishing volumetric moments of this housing solution are the elevator, which takes place as a vertical element of the composition, and the main entrance which recedes from the encounter of the two facades creating a carved shed. Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoHowever, the circulation zone, the element of spatial unity in the house, is the main theme in the volumetric conception. It marks a separation of the house into two volumes, by his retreat in relation to the facades. This illusion of a gap between volumes highlights the design and composition of the elevations. Save this picture!Spatially, the circulation space also features a different treatment reinforcing its value in the design concept. This moment of transition adopts a distinct surface treatment, which associated with continuous overhead lighting, strengthens the idea of passage, of path. This striking contemporary design goes above and beyond the standardized and canonical models of today’s usual housing solutions.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoProject gallerySee allShow lessCholula Student Housing / BNKR ArquitecturaArticlesRe-Thinking Shanghai Proposal / Vinícius Philot, Fabiano Ravaglia and Gibran DuarteArticles Sharecenter_img Architects: Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  783 m² Photographs Paramos House / Atelier Nuno Lacerda LopesSave this projectSaveParamos House / Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes Portugal “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAtelier Nuno Lacerda LopesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesEspinhoPortugalPublished on June 18, 2012Cite: “Paramos House / Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes” 18 Jun 2012.

Lv-Z House arises from the request of the client to develop a home for sale. The house needed to be simple but without being generic. Thus, taking advantage of the property in a corner plot of 170 m2, the design scheme was a Z-shape, which allowed for a garden of 42 m2 and 2 m2 of frontal setback. The rest of the program is divided into ground floor: living-dining room, kitchen, bathroom, service area and 2 car garage, and on the upper floor: 3 bedrooms and a living room, for a total of 180 m2. Save this picture!© Patrick López JaimesThe openings and opaque areas of the house respond to privacy and light. Therefore, the southeast facade is completely closed to avoid direct sunlight and in turn close the view of the main boulevard. The opposite facade serves as a service corridor in addition to leaving the building separated from the adjoining house. This way, the other two facades contain the openings, windows, one with smaller horizontal elements overlooking the side street and the other facade with continuous windows overlooking the garden.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: Beyond the SupersquareEventreSITE 2014: Cities and Landscapes of the New EconomyEvent Share Mexico “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeNonWarpOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPueblaMexicoPublished on February 19, 2014Cite: “Lv-Z House / NonWarp” [Casa Lv-Z / NonWarp] 19 Feb 2014.

B14 / Studio Granda

B14 is a villa on the southern periphery of a mature neigbourhood. It borders a lava field and has long views to the Bláfjöll mountain ridge. Built on the site of the client’s previous house the foundation pad was garnered from the crushed concrete of the former dwelling. All other materials were sorted during the demolition process and recycled. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonThe site is trapezoidal in form, narrow on the north side and wide on the south. This simple geometry was the generator of the folded, fan-like roof that was to become so important for the design. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonWithin the house the smaller, intimate spaces such as bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry room, are located towards the north beneath a series of pitched roofs. The family and work spaces are in the heart of the building and along the south face, under a gently rippling roof, are the living, dining and kitchen areas with open fireplaces at each end.Parallel to these spaces is the sky lit garage and the entrance lobby cum gallery that is only white painted room in the house. Elsewhere the palette is primarily in-situ concrete, kampala timber and structural steel beams. Special surfaces are of polished black granite, calacatta, arabescato and nero marquina marble. Buried in the depth of the plan is a stair of sawn basalt illuminated by a solitary skylight. It leads down to a workshop and store. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonThe house is at the end of a cul-de-sac that terminates in the smooth concrete of the entrance yard. The dominant form is the inverted roof of the carport that sails over a long copper wall concealing the garage and main entrance door. The external walls are of the same in-situ concrete as the interior with the exception of a few planes of columnar basalt masonry. The roof is a landscape of wild grass and heather and rainwater trickles in the open copper channels between the northern gables. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonAll windows and door joinery are custom made of heavy section kampala. Bathrooms are shielded with horizontal copper louvers and the full height windows of the south façade are shaded by a generous canopy. Two large sliding doors join the kitchen and dining room with this protected external space and the view over the lava field. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonThe former dwelling had a rich, mature, garden and this has been conserved as much as possible. Gaps in the planting were filled with relocated plants from the original garden and new species to balance the range and scale of flora. The paved areas were laid with irregular plates that were sliced from large basalt boulders. The hoggin in the gaps between the stone will encourage the growth of delicate mosses and lichens. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonProduct Description. The house is primarily made of concrete and kampala timber topped with grass. Concrete is one of the few indigenous building materials in Iceland. In the past many kinds of wood were used as they washed ashore as driftwood. Traditional Icelandic houses were made of driftwood and turf.Project gallerySee allShow lessA Tilting Horizon: Reflecting on 50 Issues of VOLUME and What’s Yet to ComePublicationsChadstone Shopping Centre / CallisonRTKL + The Buchan GroupSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:IcelandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Hundreds in Wisconsin tell Trump: ‘Get your hate out of our state!’

first_imgMarch 29 — Protesters from across the state of Wisconsin and beyond converged in the city of Janesville on March 28 and 29 to protest Donald Trump, who had a speaking engagement there. The evening of March 28, six members of Showing Up for Racial Injustice occupied the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express in Janesville. With their arms locked together inside of PVC piping, they demanded that Donald Trump’s March 29 appearance at the adjoining conference center be canceled. The management refused and the six were arrested and charged with obstructing an officer and trespass. The following day, March 29, those opposing Trump, including members of Workers World Party from Rockford, Ill., participated in a protest and faced off with his supporters outside the hotel. Also on March 29, hundreds of people took over the streets of Milwaukee to protest the GOP debate. “Today we marched with hundreds of community members to say that Milwaukee is ‪#‎UnitedAgainstHate‬ and united against Trump and Cruz and the politicians who support their ideas ‪#‎StopTrump‬,” declared the immigrant and worker rights organization Voces de la Frontera. Voces added: “This afternoon we marched with hundreds of members of the community to say that Milwaukee is united against the hatred of Trump, Cruz and all politicians who support their ideas.” Members of numerous organizations participated in the Milwaukee protest, including the Coalition For Justice, Defeat “Right To Work” In Wisconsin, Fight For $15, the Latin American Solidarity Committee, Occupy Milwaukee, Students for a Democratic Society, Showing Up for Racial Injustice, Youth Empowered In the Struggle, Wisconsin Jobs Now and the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement.   Protests against Trump are also planned in the cities of Green Bay and Appleton on March 30 and in Wausau on April 2.
