They wanted to maintain their privacy, but also directed us to provide an open, light-filled design, that responded to the hillside site. The owners also wanted a more controlled garden-type of an area and a more natural landscape on the rear of the lot. Sensible green measures were to be included, although the project budget would not allow “Grand” measures. Save this picture!Longitudinal section Design Objectives on This Project: Affordability + Resource Efficient + Modularity + Recycled Content + Directed Openness The design response in this built project, as stated by the owners, is to untie their co-dependence on external energy supplies, will self-provide power with solar energy, gray water will be re-used, the natural controlled garden acts as a Rainwater-Harvesting System, to be used for growing vegetables and other plants. Save this picture!© Carlos Varela and Oficina 3 To preserve privacy, bring in light while minimizing unwanted solar heat gain, and provide connection to nature, we oriented a large window wall north to the back yard, sloping the ceiling of the great room up to increase the light and connection to nature in that space. The sloping roof also provides a surface suitable for mounting the 13.4 kW PV system. Other building faces have smaller, windows that maximize light as well as privacy.

Affordability By direct use of these components, determined waste from post-industrial process and other industries, these raw elements lower cost, and provides the building project with an aesthetic determined by the physical properties of its natural found state. The effectiveness of these techniques depends on the capacity to differentiaterecoverable waste to ensure maximum efficiency and use of the material.

The landscape surrounding the house is a unique place, where each and every one of its corners can be celebrated. The project works with a double strategy: to build lookouts towards three specific points distant from each other while building a central, nodal, protected but open to the outside, and that has a total exposure to different environments that the own architecture delimits. The architectural strategy is also developed through the materiality of the project: on the one hand with decisions that have to do with maintenance, structure and thermal behavior; and on the other, by material decisions that result from considering the visual weight that architecture must have in landscapes as recondite as the one the house occupies.Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sandra PereznietoSave this picture!Diagram 4Concrete will undoubtedly be a starting point, due to its high structural performance against a changing topography on one side of the house; It is also indisputable its good behavior over the years and its low need for maintenance. The thermal mass of the material is positive due to the thermal jumps in the area; and the incorporation of large openings of crossed windows allow to generate punctually crossed ventilations that grant the project a high thermal comfort throughout the different moments of the day, as well as throughout the year.Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoHowever, the differential ingredient of the CDLR project is the commitment to the reuse of the huge amount of wood obtained from fallen or dead trees throughout the area, the roof of the house, which defines the limits of all living spaces, both interior and exterior, will be built with that wood, and that wood. Between these beams, a ceramic piece is placed as a lost formwork, which consolidates the plane of the roof. Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoSave this picture!Constructive Section ASave this picture!© Sandra PereznietoA material of great personality appears in this way, which constructs a single plane, with the wood establishing a very emphatic and directional rhythm that will order the project, at the same time that it defines a basic work module for the definition of the spaces. The house is painted black. It is painted (and not dye), as it is, in turn, another layer of material protection that configures the house; it is painting, because the house is very exposed to the inclemency of time, and the dye tends to lose its qualities over the years; and it is black, responding to the desire to blend in with the landscape, seeking a certain anonymity in front of the vegetation and exuberant views.Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Wild Churches of Kerala, Southern India as Captured by Stefanie ZocheArchitecture NewsEliel and Eero Saarinen: The Sweeping Influence of Architecture’s Greatest Father-So…Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/900384/casa-de-la-roca-cadaval-and-sola-morales Clipboard Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/900384/casa-de-la-roca-cadaval-and-sola-morales Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

Umphrey’s Busts Out The Clash At Chucktown Ball Closer, Announces Three-Night Run In Atlanta

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee returned to Charleston, SC last night, for the second night of their own Chucktown Ball. The southern city event started as a series of benefit concerts in Charleston last year, after a hometown mass shooting stirred band members who live in the city. This year, the band took the Ball to the next level, bringing on special guest musicians in a larger venue, the North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center. You can listen to Friday night’s performance here.Saturday night’s concert-goers were treated to an extreme evening of music, with electronic duo The Floozies kicking things off as the night’s support. When UM took the stage, fans were treated to an all-original set of music, including an extensive “Miami Virtue” into “Mad Love” jam. The first set closed with a fan-favorited “2×2” rocker, which featured teases of Eye of the Tiger’s “Survivor”, Pink Floyd‘s “Another Brick in the Wall”, and John Coltrane‘s “A Love Supreme”.The second set opened with a stand-out version of “Life During Exodus”, a mashing of Talking Heads’ “Life During Wartime” and Bob Marley’s “Exodus,” with Frank Zappa’s “City of Tiny Lites” and Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4.” The mashup is featured on their upcoming album, ZONKEY, which comes out this Fall. Sticking to the tease-heavy theme of Saturday night’s setlist, the band’s performance of “Bad Friday” included teases of Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean.”Toward the end of the set, the Chicago-based jam greats busted out “Rock The Casbah” for the 11th time in their nearly twenty year career. The Clash cover has not been performed by the sextet since September of 2015 at the Forest Park in St. Louis, MO. The Casbah classic led into a “Drums” jam, and then into the “Hurt Bird Bath” set closer, which incorporated teases of Bach‘s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”, before Umphrey’s McGee returned to the stage for a “Puppet String” encore.Come November 11th, Umphrey’s McGee will release ZONKEY, a new studio album that features recordings of the band’s famed mash up tracks. Having already released versions of “Life During Exodus” and “National Loser Anthem”, which features a mash-up of Radiohead, Beck, and Phil Collins, last night’s performance was pure indication that this release will be full of surprises.Following last night’s show, keyboardist Joel Cummins announced from the stage that the band will return to Atlanta, GA for a three-night stand at The Tabernacle over Martin Luther King weekend in January. He confirmed this statement with a tweet earlier today: Umphrey’s McGee @ Chuck Town Ball, North Charleston Coliseum North Charleston, SC 9/24/16:Set I: October Rain > Speak Up, Miami Virtue > Mad Love, Higgins, Preamble > Mantis, 2×2*Set II: Life During Exodus^, All In Time > Prowler > All In Time, Bad Friday^^, Rock the Casbah > Drums > Hurt Bird Bath^^^Enc: Puppet StringNotes: *with Eye of the Tiger (Survivor) jam and Another Brick in the Wall (Pink Floyd) and A Love Supreme (John Coltrane) teases^with 25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago) tease^^with Billie Jean (Michael Jackson) tease^^^With Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach) tease[Setlist via AllThingsUmphreys]last_img read more

3 year-end tax moves you should make now

John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Whether it’s keeping tabs on your holiday spending or thinking about your 2017 tax return, you may be super focused on your finances at this time of year. Here are three year-end tax moves you should make now to prepare for 2018.Be charitable: When purchasing Christmas gifts this year, don’t forget your favorite non-profits and charities. A sizable donation will be a nice deduction to your tax bill. Plus, you’ll be able to help out your favorite charity at Christmas time, and that’ll make you feel good.Max out your retirement: Maxing out your IRA or 401k is a great idea for two reasons. First, you’re boosting your nest egg, which will make you very happy when it comes time to retire. The second reason is that you’re lowering your amount of taxable income, and that will save you money on taxes this year.Know your FSA rules: Under the current rules for flexible spending accounts, you won’t necessarily lose your FSA balance at the end of the year. But, it’s important you know the rules for your company’s FSA plan. You may have one of two options with your FSA: A “roll over” of up to $500 into the next year’s account or a 2.5 month grace period. Find out if your company provides one of these two deadline extensions before it’s too late.last_img read more
