In a small village near the city of Coimbra, 3 sisters inherit and share a land. They wanted to build a house that would join them for the second time in their lives, because the family houses they own are nowadays too large.

The implementation of the 3 houses elects as the main facade the south elevation, that adjoins the street and turns too the square at east. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFrom the previous elements only the old stone enclosure remained, surrounding the field at the north and east side and suspending the house level on the side that is turned to the square. Two other walls, these ones in concrete, are constructed parallel to the stone wall. These walls delimit the 3 lots and support the 3 houses, defining the suspension elements to the entire upper floor volume. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe resulting voids on the ground floor are enclosed by large glass windows and occupied by commerce and services. Between houses, on the upper floor, there are interruptions that articulate transversal routes, visually connecting the 2 parallel streets or the 2 gardens and providing each house a volumetric autonomy. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGInside, the house develops vertically in a volume that contains the staircase that access all 3 floors. As we go up we enter a corridor, centered in space, with low ceilings and covered in warm coloured wood, that hides the structure and creates an autonomous volume. In this hallway, doors hidden by large panels reveal several functional spaces. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThis space is also a “light box”, the artificial lighting contained in the architecture serves all the different spaces in the house. Through this the standardization of the night lighting of the 3 houses is achieved, emerging from the extensive glazing turned to river Mondego fields. Save this picture!1st floor planOutside, near the stone wall, a small fountain was built, replacing an old one. The design of this new element wants to give a sense of continuity and consistency to the project of these 3 houses. This set stands out from its surroundings for its contemporary design, but integrates in the accuracy of the construction details for its scale, volumes proportion, colors and used materials.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessMemorial of the Victims of Communism in Estonia / Armin Valter + Joel KopliArticles12th International Alvar Aalto Symposium: ‘Crafted’ – The Ingredients of ArchitectureArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/222360/3-houses-3-sisters-ines-cortesao-jose-pedro-caetano Clipboard Houses Photographs CopyHouses•Portugal Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeInês Cortesão + José Pedro CaetanoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on April 03, 2012Cite: “3 Houses 3 Sisters / Inês Cortesão + José Pedro Caetano” 03 Apr 2012.

Eaves house, a home for a couple in Gwacheon, portrays how to re-interpret traditional Korean eave typology to achieve high environmental and aesthetical standards. Located in between Gwanaksan Mountain and Cheonggyecheon Mountain, the site offers a panoramic view of its surrounding mountains. The project aims to achieve an architectural outcome where the balance between nature perseverance and spatial experience coexist. Additionally, a continuous interplay between light and shadow along with various scenery interchanges are expected to tag along in the process.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSpace, an articulation of nature – Designed to provide an optimal indoor environment for living, Eaves house promotes uniquely strategic narratives, establishing a homogeneous perception of the two mountains and the surrounding housing complex. The curves, inspired by the curvature of the surrounding mountains, reflect as an extension of the surrounding landscape with vista opened towards the sun-lit Southeast.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinLarge windows allow various exterior features from season to season, while the central skylight provides natural lighting yet functions to support hot air ventilation. Respectively, shades are formed through the naturally established eaves at both ends, filtering daylight through the vertically composed stainless steel pipes beneath. The Peak of Gwanak Mountain and Cheonggyesan Mountain, extended beyond the Gateway Park, is connected here through streams of lines.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinEaves, the evolving hereditary paradigm – The eaves, highlighted as the main feature of the design, were inspired radically by the Korean Traditional Roof (Cheo-ma). Structured underneath are white-painted stainless pipes, patterned respectively as reflections upon the original Korean traditional aesthetics. The design re-interpreted the structural function to suit the modernized era. These composed lines filter sunlight in the daytime while controlling light emission from installed lightings at night.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinOn the other hand, the counter to this specified adaptation is also seen as a strategical approach from the architect’s perspective. Below the eaves, the residual areas are brought forward as a focal balcony on each side, serving the respective spaces. One caters shade to the kitchen area, while the other extends the perimeter of the study area. Hence, the in and out relationship between the two realms of nature and architecture is considered boundless, intervening one another by the presence of these perceptual intermediate spaces.Save this picture!Mass DevelopmentSave this picture!© Kyungsub ShinPassive Housing – Eaves house is sealed off with a high-level airtight construction and insulation, internally isolated from any external intervention. In supporting inhabitation, the house adopted a Passive Housing Standard to circulate essentials energy within. The introduction of the heat recovery system (HRV) supports the realization of high-performance ventilation and air filtration to the house. In the basement, low noise filters were installed, drawing in toxic exhaled air from inside while circulating fresh air from outside throughout internally. These measures effectively reduce the annual energy consumption of the client through design and construction.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessNelson Airport Terminal / Studio Pacific ArchitectureSelected ProjectsYale Science Building / Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects + StantecSelected Projects Share Photographs South Korea Eaves House / JOHO Architecture CopyAbout this officeJOHO ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGwacheon-siOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on December 12, 2020Cite: “Eaves House / JOHO Architecture” 11 Dec 2020.

NPPC Urges SBA to Ensure Ag Businesses Can Access Disaster Loan…

first_img Previous articleCoronavirus Impact Ripples Across Farm CountryNext articleDairy Farmers Dumping Milk Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) joined 30 agriculture organizations yesterday in urging the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to ensure agricultural business can participate in the economic disaster loan program included in the CARES Act.Earlier this week, SBA posted information on its Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program website stating applicants do not qualify for loans if they are an agricultural enterprise (e.g. farm). However, the CARES Act, signed into law last month, does not specifically exclude agriculture from this program. Congress intended for all business fewer than 500 employees to participate, NPPC and the agriculture organizations wrote Wednesday to SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza.“Agricultural producers and businesses are critical elements of this nation’s economy and food system. Prior to COVID-19, farmers and ranchers had already experienced a drastic 24-percent decline in net farm income from highs experienced just six years ago. With the further downturn in the economy, agricultural businesses are at risk of closure and may be required to lay off employees,” the letter explained. “Many agricultural producers need access to this critical source of financing to help preserve their businesses and avoid further disruptions to our economy and food systems,” the letter added.“As part of the critical U.S. food supply infrastructure, U.S. pork producers are committed to keeping Americans and consumers around the world supplied with nutritious protein. To ensure a continued and uninterrupted supply of pork to America’s kitchens, hog farmers must have access to necessary resources, including this vital economic disaster loan program,” said NPPC President Howard “A.V.” Roth, a pork producer from Wauzeka, Wisconsin. “We urge SBA to implement this program as intended by Congress, allowing pork producers to participate and remain committed to keeping consumers supplied with nutritious protein,” he added.A copy of the letter is available here.Learn more about U.S. pork producer efforts to ensure an uninterrupted supply of pork by visiting: https://nppc.org/issues/issue/your-food-is-our-priority/Source: NPPC press release SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 5, 2020 Home Indiana Agriculture News NPPC Urges SBA to Ensure Ag Businesses Can Access Disaster Loan Program Facebook Twitter SHARE NPPC Urges SBA to Ensure Ag Businesses Can Access Disaster Loan Programlast_img read more

Early goals lead soccer to victory over Texas Tech

It was a good cushion for us to help us settle down and start playing TCU soccer.”TCU scored the goals on their first two shots of the game. The first was in the fifth minute as Payton Crews found Bright for her first goal of the season.Four minutes after Bright scored, Collins put another one in the net to give the Frogs a commanding 2-0 lead.Texas Tech made an effort to respond, but goalie Emily Alvarado stopped all eight of the Red Raider’s shots to record her 17th career shutout.“I’m happy with the overall performance,” Bell said. “We get another shutout. Emily [Alvarado] does a good job. The backline and the front six do a good job preventing shots and fighting. It wasn’t the prettiest, but it is a good win for us.” For the first time since 2018, TCU is unbeaten through five games. The win Friday was also the 100th overall win at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium.“Texas Tech is a good team,” Bell said. “The record doesn’t show that, but they are well-coached, and they are going to be prepared. They threw something at us that our kids were able to handle, so I’m proud of our group for dealing with it.”TCU will now begin a three-game road trip starting at Kansas.

Journalist gunned down in Rawalpindi, TV station attacked in Quetta

On 24 January, Aamir Wakil, 40, a married man with four children, was murdered close to his home in Rawalpindi, near Islamabad. Today, an angry crowd ransacked the studios of Samaa TV in the southwestern city of Quetta.The press freedom organisation offers its condolences to Wakil’s family and colleagues, including his brother Kamal Asfar, who is also a journalist.“We strongly condemn Wakil’s murder,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Although there is so far no evidence that it was linked to his work as a journalist, we call for the deployment of additional resources for the investigation and the prosecution of those responsible. Similarly, the authorities must consider new measures to protect privately-owned media after the attack on Samaa TV in Quetta.”The press freedom organisation added: “If the climate of violence is not quickly brought under control, the government will not be able to say it is doing everything possible to ensure that Pakistani journalists can work in free and safe environment.”Three journalists have been killed in Pakistan since the start of January, while seven were killed last year, making it the deadliest country in the world for the media after Iraq.Wakil, who worked for Awami Inqilab (People’s Revolution), a regional daily based in Kohat, south of Peshawar, was shot in the back, near the neck. “He was just a few metres from his home when he was killed,” his brother, Kamal Asfar, told Reporters Without Borders.“Aamir told me two hours before he was murdered that he had received threats from unidentified persons,” Asfar said. “It was a targeted murder. I do not think the authorities did it. His killers were not government people.”Rawalpindi-based journalists told Reporters Without Borders that Wakil was a “professional journalist” and that “there was no rivalry.” Their comments contradicted initial claims by the police that Wakil’s murder was linked to “personal disputes.” The National Union of Journalists of Pakistan has begun its own investigation in an attempt to identify the motives.The police officer in charge of the investigation said he had questioned a witness and was confident the killer would be arrested. The police are also investigating the murder of a young man in the same neighbourhood on the same day. The other victim was killed by two unidentified individuals who tried to take his money and mobile phone.Today’s attack on Samaa TV’s premises in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province, was carried out by a crowd that was angered by the murder of a local politician. The Samaa TV bureau chief told Reporters Without Borders the protesters fire shots and threw stones at the building, damaging a vehicle and equipment.
