The house is located in an area with a intrincated topography, 35 meters above the Pacific Ocean, in Tunquén beach. The dramatic slope is understood from a resignation to the inevitable need to build livable floorplans.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThe house is designed as a lightweight volume, entirely in pine wood, set on a concrete base that links to the rockiness of the ground. On the outside, it has worked as a continuous black shell that has been cut and detached from the cover and from the ground, to bring up the openings of the windows. By contrast, the interiors are continuous and neutral. White grout on the walls and ceiling serves to preserve until dusk the natural light in the inside, and to reveal the variety of colors of the enviroment, the Pacific Ocean, the twilight, and the vegetation, that appears in continuous movement and transformation.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThere is a generously sized room for parents, and two smaller for the children. A large common space, that includes the living room, the dinning room and the kitchen, works as an articulator of the three “arms” of the house.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThe aggregates and wood used were founded in the immediate area, same for the fournitures in Kitchen, dinnng room and living room, made of recycled wood from old houses of Valparaiso. We like to think that there is some relationship between the heights of these new spaces and heights of the old houses and salons from which these woods came from.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThere is not power line in the area. Thats why the house is fed by a system of solar panels and a pump that draws water from wells, falling by gravity and feeding the house, being an absolutely independent and autonomous system. This puts the user in a position of austerity, very far from the large energy consumption of the big city.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSOM Breaks Ground on Los Angeles’ CourthouseArchitecture NewsPR House / Bach ArquitectesSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Architects: WHALE!

While the potential for corporate-charity collaboration is clear, the reality is often frustrating with the majority of relationships still based on passive giving from business to charity. It requires new thinking and the ability to try and test over the long term, but the long term potential of uniting the different insights, knowledge and resources around a common cause is very exciting.” Advertisement Tagged with: corporate Research / statistics Charities need to take a longer-term approach to corporate partnerships to reap the best rewards rather than focusing on short-term financial value, according to a report by Forster Communications.Forster’s 2015 Business to Society Research consulted 28 charities with annual incomes ranging from £1m to over £200m and shows that while funds from corporates are vital, too much emphasis is put on the bottom line, rather than on finding ways to unlock deeper and sustained social change through aligned purpose, products and staff engagement.70% of those surveyed said the first aspect of a partnership they look at is the money on offer, while over 90% of charities would accept a partnership if it was purely a donation with no additional depth of relationship.However, charities are also selective about who they partner with, with every charity saying that they consider the brand values of a partner and over two thirds stating that they had rejected a partnership due to fears of negative brand association. 82% would turn down a potential partner if it had an association with an issue the charity campaigns against, while 71% would not partner with a brand that the public did not trust,A failure by corporates to place enough emphasis on their charity partnerships also causes issues, according to the charities surveyed. 78% identified a lack of genuine buy-in from partners’ senior teams as a limiting factor in the success of their corporate relationships, with almost half (48%) saying corporates need to do more to motivate their staff to get behind the partnership and 85% seeking greater integration with their partners.Top 5 influencers in choosing a corporate partner:How much money they can raise (70%)Strong reach/resonance with target audience (59%)Genuine understanding of issues and objectives (52%)Long term commitment (52%)Whether they are responsible business driven by values (33%) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Melanie May | 30 December 2015 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

U.S. Capitol PoliceBy LUKE BARR, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The family of Capitol Police officer Billy Evans, killed in last Friday’s attack, said Tuesday his death “left a gaping void in our lives that will never be filled.”“The absolute most important thing in his life were his two children, Logan and Abigail,” his family said in a statement, accompanied by a photo of Evans with his children, that Capitol Police released on Twitter.“His most cherished moments were those spent with them – building with Lego, having light saber duels, playing boardgames, doing arts and crafts and recently finishing the Harry Potter series. He was always so eager to show how proud he was of everything they did. Any opportunity to spend time with his children brightened both their lives and his. Their dad was their hero long before the tragic events of last week,” their statement said.His family said they’ve has heard “countless” testimonials from people of all walks of life telling them how “warm, funny and caring” he was.“He relished bringing people together and making sure everyone felt included and had a good time,” they said, adding that he had a welcoming personality that allowed him to make friends with anyone he met.The family is asking for privacy and thanked the USCP and greater law enforcement community around the country and world for the outpouring of support they’ve received.The American flag flying atop the Capitol on Friday was presented to Officer Evans’ family, Capitol Police said.Authorities said he was struck just before a suspect then rammed his car into a barricade at the Capitol.House and Senate leadership announced on Tuesday that Evans will lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda next week.“The United States Congress joins all Americans in mourning the tragic death of one of our Capitol Police heroes, Officer Billy Evans,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement. “In giving his life to protect our Capitol and our Country, Officer Evans became a martyr for our democracy. On behalf of the entire Congress, we are profoundly grateful.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
