Ryumei Fujiki and Yukiko Sato/F.A.D.S designed this home for an art appreciator and amateur artist who wanted a “house like an art museum.” Planned with careful consideration for air circulation as well as for the harsh, snowy climate of the Japan Sea coast, the structure is composed of white boxes of varying scale that frame spaces like pictures.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ryumei FujikiRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesRenders / 3D AnimationEnscape3D Real-Time Rendering SoftwareEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesSeamless Spatial CompositionYou can circulate through the spaces in this home looking at the owner’s collection of artwork just as if you were passing through galleries in a museum. The structure fulfills the client’s request that passersby not be able to see inside, while also letting in fresh air and sunlight and achieving a well-sequenced, multi-layered spatial composition. Although the home is made up of a number of cubes of different sizes, we tried to create a structure that was as seamless as possible, with the spaces forming a single connected unit. In addition,  the client wanted to be able to draw in both the garden and the studio, so we included a courtyard that could be accessed directly from the north-facing studio.Save this picture!AxonometricClient’s CollectionIt goes without saying that our top priority was fulfilling the client’s wishes. We began by measuring the many works of art that the client had created and collected over the years. Next, we held a number of planning meetings to discuss where to display each work of art, among other issues. For instance, we determined the height of the living room ceiling based on the wall size that could accommodate a painting measuring over 1.5 x 1 meter. In addition to the art collection, the client also has a large number of old records, mostly jazz. It was important for us to figure out a way to display them so their jackets would appear to best advantage. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaResponse to the Environment (Nature)We considered very well the response to and interaction with the environment. The first thing was dealing with the snow. In regions with heavy snow, the shape of the roof is very important. Many homes are built on the assumption that someone will shovel the snow off the roof, but that’s a lot of heavy work, and dangerous. Our initial proposal was for a budget-conscious, wood-framed structure with a gently-sloping roof that would naturally shed snow. In the end, however—and in part because of the client’s input—we decided on a flat roof with no parapet that would stay relatively snow-free because of wind action. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaOur second challenge was coming up with a plan that would create good airflow within the structure. To encourage natural ventilation, we created a temperature differential by designing two gardens, one on the south side that would warm up easily, and one on the north side that would remain cool. This is a traditional design method used in Kyoto townhouses (Please see the attached images). Our PhilosophyIn this project, our first priority was fulfilling the client’s wishes, but we don’t believe the architect’s role stops there. Architects must also respond to various societal problems with bold imagination. For example, we need to fundamentally rethink architectural practices in response to the world’s worsening environmental problems. We are looking to nature, or natural systems, for hints as to how to do that. It’s not simply about finding clever ways to reduce energy use, but rather about architecture itself growing closer to nature. It’s impossible to fully realize this ideal in a single project, but what we hope to do in our future work is to steadily experiment with a variety of approaches, and through that process to approach a new kind of architecture.

The project was to demolish a single-family dwelling and build another one in its place in the center of V. N. de Famalicão. The proposal is on a triangular urban plot of land covering an area of 940.80 m2. The topography includes a 7.60 m slope down from west to east, so the elevations in the corner converge with those on the surrounding roads. The building on the site was of poor quality. Everything was demolished apart from the garage, below the elevation of the patio with level access from the road at the lower level. The surrounding walls also held back the earth, below the street level to the west and above street level to the east.Save this picture!AxonometricThe house has a 367.20 m2 footprint and a gross area of 408.90 m2 on two floors. Floor 0 is 99.30 m2 and it was rehabilitated and expanded, preserving the garage, entrance, vertical access and storage area. Floor 1, at the level of the interior of the plot, is 309.60 m2, and this is where the main structure of the house is – service area, social zone and reserved zone (bedrooms).Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe land is highly exposed because of the different topographies between the adjoining streets. This is why the house sits 1 m from the western boundary, below the street and does not show any wall or elevation. It is closed to the north for urbanistic and thermal reasons. This is also why the house is open to the east where light enters the kitchen and the whole of the south-facing front is open under a curved shade cover.Save this picture!© João MorgadoSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© João MorgadoThe illumination of the other rooms comes from small patios cut out of the volume.– Patio 1, allows access from Rua Vieira da Silva;– Patio 2, illuminates the dressing room and the bathroom attached to the main bedroom;– Patio 3, illuminates the 3 bedrooms;– Patio 4, for service, illuminates the kitchen and laundry.Save this picture!© João MorgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessThe World’s First Freeform 3D-Printed House Enters Development PhaseArchitecture NewsSaint-Isidore School Group Extension / ANMASelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeNoArqOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVila Nova de FamalicãoPortugalPublished on January 31, 2018Cite: “ED&JO House / NoArq” 31 Jan 2018.

Clive Walford to the Broncos Would Show Wisdom

first_imgMarch 29, 2018 /Sports News – Local Clive Walford to the Broncos Would Show Wisdom Written by This is a great opportunity for the Broncos to make a sound pickup that won’t break the bank. With the salary cap so stringent, that seems the wisest course of action if you want to enhance your squad. No other players in football can do the things tight ends can do, in terms of blocking and receiving. If you have the opportunity to improve your team, why not do the little things behind the scenes?I once learned an adage in my youth: by small and simple means, great things happen. Andrew Mason also likes him. Sayre [email protected] In any event, we shall see if the Broncos are proactive in trying to acquire him but it would be wise.  If there’s a good tight end to be had, don’t think I will say “No.” I have a man crush on all tight ends, ever since I was in 3rd grade. My journal proves it. Loved Walford coming out of Miami in the 2015 draft … still some upside there, IMO. 61 receptions for 688 yards and six touchdowns in his first two seasons before going 9-80-0 with reduced reps in 2017. …11:45 AM – Mar 27, 2018Who am I to refute these two great witnesses? Anyway, Walford seems to have a solid work ethic and has six receiving touchdowns in 70 games. For someone who was not the Raiders’ primary tight end, that seems pretty solid to me. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail *this is another one of my Predominantly Orange articles, speaking of free agent tight end Clive Walford. Yes, I’ve always had an affinity for tight ends.The Oakland Raiders released tight end Clive Walford Tuesday and it would show wisdom if the Broncos get him. Walford, a 6’4″ 253-pounder in his 4th year out of Miami (Fla.) has made vast strides already.Pro Football Reference reports Walford has greatly improved in his catch percentage. In 2015, his rookie year, he caught 56% of passes thrown to him. In 2016, this increased to 63.5% and in 2017, this went to 69.2%. Brad James This makes a TON of sense for Denver. He excelled under Musgrave, and the #Broncos need a TE who has game experience. …11:43 AM – Mar 27, 2018 If he continues on this trajectory, he should catch at least 74.5% of balls coming his way. Our blog boss, Sayre Bedinger, is bullish on him. Andrew [email protected] Tags: Andrew Mason/Clive Walford/Denver Broncos/Sayre Bedingerlast_img read more

The Forgotten

first_imgYou know how you can stare at something day in, day out, over and over, and see it so often that you can actually begin to not see it. That thing becomes so familiar, it just sort of disappears. This is how you start to take good things for granted. The cup of coffee that your wife makes you every morning without being prompted. That trail system next to your neighborhood that you ride only when you don’t have enough time to ride something better. That brewery that’s been churning out solid beers for years while flashier, newer entities have come and gone. The South is full of these “heritage” breweries that have helped lay the foundation for our craft beer scene only to see the market flooded with newer, sometimes edgier options. I’m talking about places like Starr Hill, Highland, Sweetwater. Highland’s the perfect example of a brewery that I absolutely take for granted. When I first moved to Asheville, I was so stoked that the town had a brewery like Highland that made great beers. I drank nothing but Gaelic Ale for 12 months straight. No water, no milk. Just Gaelic. Now, I can’t even remember the last time I bought a Gaelic. I still consider it to be a great beer, it’s just that there are so many other local options on tap, or at the store, I just sort of gloss over those old familiar labels and get sucked in by whatever new hotness that recently hit the market. I suppose it’s human nature to want what’s new. That probably explains why I start reading the rumors about the next iPhone about three days after I bring home the latest version. And we live in a time where it’s easy to get sucked into the hype surrounding the newest brewery. The fact is, I live in a town where a new brewery opens its doors every 20 minutes. Depending on how quickly you read, two new breweries might start selling beer during the time it takes you to get through this blog. I’m not complaining, I like having the options. It’s just that sometimes, I feel like a bit of a traitor when I realize I haven’t spent any quality time with those original breweries that were there for me when the options weren’t so robust. Or even that second wave of breweries, like Hi-Wire or The Wedge that opened during a time when the craft beer fever wasn’t so high and people actually said things like, “yeah, but can Asheville really handle another brewery?” Now, we don’t even question the business model. I actually get irate when a building gets renovated and I hear that whatever business going into the space isn’t going to brew their own beer. What’s the point of having a barber shop or dry cleaners if you don’t make your own IPA? So maybe it’s not my fault that I haven’t had a Gaelic or a Hi-Wire Pale in months. Maybe I’m just a victim of TMBTCF (too many beers to choose from). I’d like to support these “older” breweries, but I’ve also got to check out the new kids on the block. It’s my duty as a, uh, journalist. I guess the only solution is to drink more beer. I mean really, I don’t see any way around it. If I’m going to support all of the breweries in my town, old and new, I’m just going to have to drink more beer. It’ll be tough, but it’s the right thing to do.last_img read more
