Clients were equally modest, simply needing more space for their family and a better connection to the garden, sunlight and air. Our initial response was to maintain as much of the house as we could, but the new program required the removal of rear rooms for a larger living area, and the tiled roof to provide first floor accommodation. The introduction of new form and textures are responsive to the existing bungalow. Save this picture!© Richard GloverThe existing gardens contained two large eucalypts that greet you on your rise up the hill, and a large rock that sat in the hill to the rear of the house, which became our focal and pivotal natural element in the new composition. Save this picture!© Richard GloverWith the underlying philosophy of relative modesty, the new form is setback, maintaining existing amenity enjoyed by neighbours. First floor accommodation is concealed in the black roof form, providing a recessive appearance from the street, nestling into the landscape, and being undemanding, unlike close neighbours. Save this picture!© Richard GloverWe arrived at the double height central void early in the design, as it allowed access to desired sunlight, air and connection to the landscape, with our ‘rock’ becoming a feature in the lounge room. The shingled roof contains the void and envelops a parent’s suite and gallery library/study. It rests on two legs at opposite corners of the building allowing possibility of a clear opening to the garden and pond at this level. It opens like an eye to the sky and trees folding and undulating along the perimeter of the plan. When describing this form to the client, and the experience one might feel standing in the lounge room looking out, the analogy of a skirt was used and then stuck, hence skirt and rock. Save this picture!© Richard GloverWhen arriving at the house you walk up through the garden to the door at the lower entrance level. Rising to the main living level of the house you experience the union of old and new, arriving in the central void that contains kitchen and lounge, opening onto outdoor dining, pond and garden areas. A connection to the old formal dining area and front verandah, with period detailing meeting new, again blurs the distinction between the architectural periods. Save this picture!sectionThe planning is centred around the living space, with the teenager quarters discreetly located behind the kitchen, with a central staircase leading to the parents. A living room to the lower level doubles as guest room and teenage retreat, with it’s own external sitting area. All rooms look onto the garden and have plenty of sunlight and natural ventilation. Save this picture!© Richard GloverLandscape design input was intrinsic, similarly, the structural engineer’s, being critical to arriving at the formal result and maintaining an economy of means. Important to the end product was the collaboration with the builder, through construction management and an organic process between client, architect and builder, a happy result was achieved, both in quality and economy.Project gallerySee allShow lessLog 23ArticlesAA Visiting School: Marking the ForestArticles Share Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/223434/skirt-rock-house-mck-architects Clipboard Photographslast_img read more

PivotText description provided by the architects. The scarcity of skilled labor and the low development of the construction industry are part of the reality that influences our work in Brasilia. Thus, we consider that the imperfection and inaccuracy inherent in the traditional method of construction used in the region are characteristics that need to be understood in the “low-tech” Brazilian construction, to be better qualified, reframed and reinterpreted in our architecture. In this project, we tested an alternative form of articulation between two conventional elements of Brazilian construction: the cast concrete structure and the precast concrete and ceramic block. The premises adopted were the use of low-cost materials and the adoption of low maintenance solutions.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Haruo MikamiThe structure of the house consists of ten identical concrete porticoes 760cm wide, in every 300cm and connected by mixed ceramic-concrete slabs composed of latticed concrete beams and ceramic bricks). Modulation provided a simple execution adapted to the available labor and to the cost initially established. The slabs were connected to the porticoes by an on-site experimental method that allowed the precast joists to be aligned with the underside of the main concrete beam of the portico. In this way, the slabs are “hanging” on the beams, rather than resting on them.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiAll the columns of the porticoes were completed together. The division line at the top of the columns marks the first step of concreting. Then, the lower reinforcement portions of the beams were cast together with mixed ceramic-concrete slabs. The rest of the inverted beams were cast less than twelve hours after the first concreting, which is allowed according to Brazilian standards (ABNT) so that the two “stages” cannot be defined, and the beams are united in one.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiSave this picture!General IsometricSave this picture!© Haruo MikamiThe large areas of mixed slabs aligned by the underside of the beams alternate with small segments of concrete slab aligned by their upper face. While the slabs with ceramic bricks face the garden and shape the ceiling of the bedrooms, garage and living room, the concrete slabs form the ceilings of bathrooms, kitchen, and services.Save this picture!© Haruo Mikami Portico House / BLOCO ArquitetosSave this projectSavePortico House / BLOCO Arquitetos Houses Portico House / BLOCO Arquitetos 2018 Year:  Projects Lead Architects: Daniel Mangabeira, Henrique Coutinho, Matheus Seco CopyHouses•Brasilia, Brazil Area:  215 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY”center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922488/portico-house-bloco-arquitetos Clipboard Photographs:  Haruo Mikami Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs Save this picture!© Haruo Mikami+ 26Curated by Matheus Pereira Share “COPY” Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Deca, Docol Project gallerySee allShow lessArchitect Designs Giant Steel Rolling Bridge for the Overlooked Area of Cody DockArchitecture NewsDirk Denison Renovates the Mies Van Der Rohe Bailey HallArchitecture News Share Architects: BLOCO Arquitetos Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922488/portico-house-bloco-arquitetos Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeBLOCO ArquitetosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrasiliaPórticoBrazilPublished on August 07, 2019Cite: “Portico House / BLOCO Arquitetos” [Casa dos Pórticos / BLOCO Arquitetos] 07 Aug 2019.

The military government forced Taung Lay Lone monastery to cancellation its celebration, which in recent years has been drawing hundreds of writers and artists from all over the country. Ludu Daw Amar who co-founded the Ludu Daily News, has often used these occasions to condemn political and social oppression and the lack of press freedom.This year, many government opponents and journalists cancelled plans to go to Mandalay for fear of reprisals. Military intelligence agents and members of the pro-government UDSA group kept both the monastery and Ludu Daw Amar’s home under surveillance. Today, police were deployed around her home and filmed guests as they arrived.The appeals rejected by the Rangoon high court were filed on behalf of Aung Than, a member of the National League for Democracy and Zeya Aung, a Pegu university student, who were given 19-year prison sentences in June for publishing a collection of political poems, crossing the Thai border illegally and cooperating with “illegal organisations.”Their lawyer told DVB radio that the court rejected the appeal the same day that he submitted it. He said he intended to submit further, special appeals to the same court but had no illusions about their chances of success. “At least we will be able to show how our rights have been annihilated,” he said. “This is now my sole concern.

Reporters Without Borders calls on Iraqi authorities to explain disappearance of four journalists

According to colleagues in Baghdad, they were being held by the regime. to go further Foreign journalists in Baghdad said four missing colleagues, including Moises Saman (see photo) of the US daily Newsday, had been held by the Iraqi authorities for the past week. They had been about to be expelled from the country. Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News “We are very worried about them,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “Whatever the authorities are accusing them of, their editors and their families should be told and they should be freed immediately.”Two of the four – Peruvian Moises Saman and Briton Matthew McAllester, both working for the US daily Newsday – were seen for the last time on 24 March at the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad. Other reporters there said the authorities were going to deport them and other journalists because they had entered the country only on tourist visas. The plan was to expel them by bus, presumably across the border with Syria.The other two missing – freelance American photographer Molly Bingham and a Danish photographer working for the Danish daily paper Jyllands-Posten, Johan Spanner – were also reportedly earmarked for deportation.

The Week Ahead: Will the Fed Follow Up on Rate Increases?

first_img Federal Reserve Head Janet Yellen will give the opening keynote at Federal Reserve System Community Development Research Conference in Washington this Thursday at 8 a.m.Last week, Yellen and the Federal Reserve announced a federal rate hike to range of 0.75 percent to 1 percent. The Fed voted to raise the rate with only one detractor, the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Neel Kashkari. Kashkari had said that he preferred to hold rates steady for now.According to Fannie Mae, the rate increases are not expected to impact housing in any major way. “We believe the Fed could stay on course to achieve its dual mandate with a gradual monetary normalization, which would allow housing to continue to expand,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. Given continued solid job growth and recent income gains, we believe this pace of rate increase will not derail the ongoing housing recovery.” “As anticipated, the FOMC went forward with the first rate hike of 2017,” said National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions Chief Economist Curt Long. “Given that inflation is rising and approaching the Fed’s 2 percent target, Fed officials had little choice but to raise rates.The rising mortgage rate isn’t expected to affect housing demand in spring, according to First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming.“Reports have suggested, or surely will, that this rise in mortgage rates will be the demise of the housing market. That’s just not so,” sid Fleming. “Yes, many existing homeowners will have a financial disincentive to sell because they would lose their lower than prevailing mortgage rates in doing so, the so-called rate lock-in effect. I have suggested that this is one of the reasons we see low inventories in most markets today, but it’s not as simple as that. We don’t act rationally. Even economists who, of all people, should know better.”The FOMC had previously raised the federal funds target rate to a range of 0.5 to 0.75 percent last December.Will Yellen follow up on last week’s rate increase?
