Brick House in Brick Garden / Jan Proksa

first_img Year: 2016 Houses Czech Republic Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceText description provided by the architects. Traditional villages in the Southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic are characterized by their distinctive urban planning. The streets are lined with L-shaped row houses neighbouring each other on narrow rectangular plots, each with its own long and narrow backyard. A single multi-generational family home typically consists of three parts: the street-facing house inhabited by parents with their children, a home for the grandparents bordering on a courtyard, and the remaining lot to the rear of the property which was traditionally used for small-scale farming. In general, the front-facing houses are more spacious and feature more elaborate construction techniques. The facade, for example, the house’s public presentation to the neighbourhood, is plastered and coloured in light natural tones. The rear buildings, however, typically remain unplastered, as such a solution was an unnecessary expense. The use of exposed brick architecture for the rear buildings was a simple, durable, and cost-effective solution which nonetheless radiated familiarity and warmth. Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceI decided to respect this tradition in my plans, using bricks for the construction in the rear of the property. The building is long and narrow, conforming to the historical shape of the lot. However, I departed from tradition on one point, in terms of structural planning: whereas a typical house would be one elongated L-shaped structure, I decided to detach the existing front-facing house from the new addition. Both houses thus retain their individual identity. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe flat roof further emphasizes the simple elegance of the new structure. It evokes and celebrates the perpendicularity of the property, as if the façade itself were an additional property-line fence. The exposed-brick façade, spilling over into an exposed-brick courtyard, also defines the boundary of the backyard garden. The single-floor floor plan is very simple and functional. The main room features an open kitchen and a large table, abutting in a non-frame sliding window with views on the garden. Adjacent, there is a bedroom with a narrow bathroom.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceWith this construction, it was my aim to create a modest yet fully-functional living space that reflects and respects its surroundings.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessPastoral Center of Moscavide / Plano Humano ArquitectosSelected ProjectsSon Yang Won Memorial Museum / Lee Eunseok + Atelier KOMASelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/873185/brick-house-in-brick-garden-jan-proksa Clipboard Save this picture!© BoysPlayNice+ 20 Share Architects: Jan Proksa Area Area of this architecture project Projects CopyHouses•Prušánky, Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/873185/brick-house-in-brick-garden-jan-proksa Clipboard Area: 55 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs “COPY” Brick House in Brick Garden / Jan ProksaSave this projectSaveBrick House in Brick Garden / Jan Proksa Manufacturers: Vola, Zumtobel, Nieuw rood bont gesinteld Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeJan ProksaOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPrušánkyCzech RepublicPublished on June 09, 2017Cite: “Brick House in Brick Garden / Jan Proksa” 09 Jun 2017.

Little House with a Big Terrace is a lucid example of having large external space in small urban residence with limited site area of Tokyo. Through the process of designing this house, we tried to prove that having rich private external space was important for making crucial difference in the quality of life inside the house, as well as obtaining various possibilities of external activity.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoRecommended ProductsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAThe first thing we decided was having an open-air space next to the main part of the residence, and connecting them with big opening of windows. Big Windows, which are necessary for making internal spaces spacious, well-lighted and airy, are one of the most costly parts of buildings, so we concentrated them to selected places, effective for improving the quality of internal spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoConsidering that the client couple’s original request was having a big terrace for doing yoga freely under the sun, connecting the terrace to the living room and the bedroom with big windows was the best way to offer fresh air and daylight to the internal spaces, like having respiratory organ to let the house breathe.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoThe second floor level of the eastern half of the site was chosen as private open-air space, because that place was facing to the rooftop of the single story garage of a neighboring house on the south. Thanks to the lower height of the garage, this place is exposed to the sunlight in the high density residential area, which is a relatively rare situation in Tokyo.Save this picture!SectionBy making a big rectangular tube here penetrating north-south, a bright and airy open space can be obtained. At the same time, the privacy of this external space is protected against very close windows of neighboring houses on the east, by the wall of the tube closed to that direction.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoThe tube was tried to be made as large as possible, because larger external space can catch more sunshine and larger blue sky. However, having large external space in the limited site area means reduction of the internal space of the house. To make up for the loss of the floor area, an attic for storage was inserted between the first floor and the second, whose ceiling height is less than 1400 mm.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoBy this arrangement, this house obtained a sufficient amount of the practicable space while the daylighting of the living room and terrace was improved, because the levels of those spaces were pushed up higher.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoAs you have already seen, Little House with a Big Terrace creates comfortable internal spaces by connecting them to the unlimited extension of external space. The most effective way to achieve real spaciousness of urban houses in high density residential area is to incorporate unlimited external spaces into design rather than trying to make internal spaces larger, which is inevitably limited by the size of site area.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro YamamotoOriginally published on November 06, 2015Project gallerySee allShow lessSelf-service Library Station / Architectural Services DepartmentSelected ProjectsMulti-function Hall Renovation of Academy of Arts and Design / Beijing New Era Const…Selected Projects Share 2015 Little House with a Big Terrace / Takuro Yamamoto Architects Year: “COPY” Projects Little House with a Big Terrace / Takuro Yamamoto ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLittle House with a Big Terrace / Takuro Yamamoto Architects Architects: Takuro Yamamoto Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeTakuro Yamamoto ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoIcebergOn FacebookJapanPublished on November 02, 2019Cite: “Little House with a Big Terrace / Takuro Yamamoto Architects” 01 Nov 2019.

Indiana Has Too Much Rain

first_img Previous articleCanadian Problems with PEDv Continue to GrowNext articleIs Crop Insurance Worth Fighting For? Gary Truitt Indiana Has Too Much Rain SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Thunderstorms in the latter part of the week limited field activity for a fourth straight week, according to Greg Matli, Indiana State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Producers in southern counties and in the Northwest part of the state welcomed the rain as it helped to improve crop condition in those areas. Elsewhere, excessive rain saturated soils, drowned crops, and left standing water in fields.As water levels of rivers rose, so did concerns for the potential of additional flooding with the forecast of more rain. The statewide average temperature was 74.0 degrees, 0.7 degrees below normal. Statewide precipitation was 1.37 inches, above average by 0.60 inches. There were 4.3 days available for fieldwork for the week ending July 9, unchanged from the previous week.Regionally, corn was 12% silked in the North, 12% in Central, and 47% in the South. Corn rated in good to excellent condition was 57% in the North, 40% in Central, and 48% in the South. Soybeans were 32% blooming in the North, 28% in Central, and 36% in the South. Soybeans rated in good to excellent condition were 57% in the North, 44% in Central, and 52% in the South. Winter wheat was 96% mature in the North, 99% in Central, and 97% in the South. Winter wheat was 56% harvested in the North, 84% in Central, and 96% in the South.In addition to heavy rain, thunderstorms brought hail and heavy winds, causing leaning of corn in some fields. In some parts of the state, soybeans were yellow and stunted. There were also reports of slugs in soybean fields, and high numbers of Western Bean Cut Worms in traps. Weed control has been an issue in the wettest areas; some fields and pastures were in good condition while others have had problems with marestail and palmer amaranth. Winter wheat harvest continued as weather conditions permitted. Livestock were reported in good condition on average. Other activities included preparing for county fairs, baling straw and applying fungicides.

The decision for an independent review was initiated following a recent court ruling involving a 2007 homicide investigation.“The allegation of misconduct against the two members of our department is deeply concerning and has an immense impact on our employees and the community we serve,” said Sanchez. “I will not tolerate any misconduct. However, I would caution against broad-based assumptions of our professional men and women based on the allegations against a few.”The audit will be conducted by Los Angeles-based Veritas Assurance Group, led by 31-year law enforcement veteran Ron Sanchez. The company will be contracted to examine cases investigated by Okamoto and Broghamer dating back to 2005 and will also examine a cross-section of Detective Bureau reports and criminal case filings to ensure consistency in reporting and that procedures were followed. At the conclusion of the audit, an Executive Summary will be made available to the public.In addition to the external audit, the Pasadena Police Department’s Internal Affairs Section continues to investigate the allegations against the two officers. The department will continue to fully cooperate with any outside inquiries.“Chief Sanchez has worked diligently since his appointment in 2010 to further changes within the department’s policies, procedures and protocol to enhance accountability,” said Mayor Bill Bogaard. “While those efforts continue, we must also ensure that the residents of Pasadena have confidence in our police department, and I believe these internal and external reviews initiated by Chief Sanchez will accomplish that goal.”“The City Council Public Safety Committee oversees City public safety programs and policies on behalf of the residents of Pasadena, to whom they are directly accountable” added Councilman Steven Madison. “As the Chair of the Public Safety Committee, and as a former federal prosecutor myself, I will work with my colleagues and staff to ensure that our City’s public safety agencies are above reproach in their work, and I will make sure that the audit summary is shared with both the City Council and the public.”“I remain confident in Chief Sanchez’s leadership and the overall professionalism of the Pasadena Police Department,” added City Manager Michael Beck. “The City of Pasadena has a proud history of community policing and of delivering a high quality of service. Until every member of the community feels secure in their local government, there is more work to be done.”For more information, contact Lt. Tracey Ibarra at (626) 744-7875.

An Unlikely Pair

first_img Share Save The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Baby Boomers Millennials Multigenerational Roommates Trulia Research Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Older generations aren’t as fond of millennials as millennials are of themselves, but sharing space with them could be in older homeowners’ benefit, according to a recent report by Trulia, especially in light of continued shrinking inventory.The report, entitled Boom-mates, looked at houses in the largest markets in the country to find out the number of houses that had two more rooms than occupants, and then presented the idea that Baby Boomers on the verge of retirement—or already retired—can supplement their income by renting out their extra room to millennials.Under this cooperative living, Baby Boomers could make an average of $14,000 a year. For millennials, renting a room instead of a one-bedroom house could save them on average $24,000 per year.Some cities fare better than others when it comes to the savings that multigenerational roommates will experience. Washington D.C. had the most homes with spare rooms—over 5.6 percent of all homes in the metro. It is estimated that renting out a spare room could net the homeowner an additional $941 a month.Boston, Cambridge, New York, Oakland, and San Francisco were the most profitable places to rent out a room. San Francisco was the clear winner, boasting an additional annual income of $22,000 a year, or $1,800 per month. Renters in San Francisco can save $14,220 per year by renting a room instead of a one-bedroom apartment, which average $3,000 a month.Unsurprisingly, renters and homeowners in New York City could save a substantial amount of money as well—second out of all the metros listed. Whereas estimated rent for a one-bedroom apartment would run a renter around $1,800 a month, estimated monthly rent for a single room would only cost around $867, saving about $11,189 annually.

$200k worth of jewelry gone in 30 seconds by a duo of Georgia mall thieves

first_imgGwinnett County Police Department(ATLANTA) — Two men allegedly used a hammer to smash through a glass display inside a Georgia jewelry store and got away with $200,000 worth of diamond rings, according to police reports.On April 15, one of the suspects walked into the Crescent Jewelers inside the Sugarloaf Mills Mall and expressed interest to an employee in necklaces. The man then left the store and returned with the second alleged suspect inquiring about diamond rings, according to the Gwinnett County Police Department. In less than 30 seconds, one of the men allegedly brandished a hammer from his waistband and broke the display case with the diamond rings.“The witness stated the suspects who had on back packs grabbed several trays containing diamond rings and placed them inside the bags,” according the police report.The store’s owner told ABC affiliate WSBTV that the thieves dropped several of the rings as they were leaving the store.The robbers — described as black, between 25- to 35-years-old with tattoos on their faces — allegedly walked out of the Lawrenceville, Georgia, mall into the parking lot where they fled in a black Mitsubishi SUV.The police are asking for the public with any information about the suspects to please contact their case detectives at 770-513-5300. To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit their website. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Tornado outbreak expected today in South, powerful winds coming to Northeast

first_imgiStock(DALLAS) — A major storm is taking shape over the central U.S. and will bring a tornado and severe weather to parts of the south.This same system will bring a widespread risk for flash flooding in parts of the Tennessee Valley, a risk for more widespread tornadoes along parts the east coast on Monday and a significant high impact wind event to the Northeast.As of early Sunday morning, there were over 60 reports of severe weather from Texas to Kansas including softball-sized hail reports in western Texas.This morning, a large part of the U.S. is under some type of alert from this developing storm system including Winter Alerts across the upper Midwest for the colder part of the storm and wind alerts that cover an area from the Great Plains to the Northeast.The most immediate threatening weather though is in the southern U.S. where a Tornado Watch is in effect this morning for parts of Texas, including Austin, Waco and San Antonio.The High Resolution Rapid Refresh model this morning is showing a cluster of thunderstorms blowing through Dallas, Waco, Austin and San Antonio this morning and then the action moving off towards Arkansas and Louisiana by later in the morning. Strong thunderstorms and tornadoes will be possible this morning in parts of this region.By early afternoon the first round of storms will push into Arkansas and Tennessee where very strong winds will be possible. As the system moves off to the east, numerous discrete supercells will begin developing from Louisiana to Alabama and western Georgia. These discrete supercells will be capable of producing strong, long track tornadoes. Additionally, lines of storms will be moving through Tennessee and Kentucky where very powerful destructive straight-lined winds will be possible.Later in the evening, the High Resolution Rapid Refresh model is still showing numerous storm cells moving through Mississippi and Georgia. Therefore, the tornado risk in this region will extend well into the overnight hours.The storm prediction center has issued a rather large moderate risk area from Louisiana to Alabama. Additionally, there is a very real concern for destructive straight-lined winds, especially across parts of Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky.The current forecast guidance indicates that there will be enough time between waves of storms that will allow enough heating to significantly destabilize the atmosphere and cause tornadic supercells.Unfortunately, this situation will persist into Monday morning with tornadic storms expected to move into Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia overnight and into Early Monday morning. Strong winds, and large hail will be possible.There is general agreement in the models that wind gusts on Monday in the Northeast will exceed 50 mph and reach as high as 70 mph.Regardless of the exact wind speed, power outages and downed trees are likely in the Northeast on Monday. Travel should already be limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, but any essential travel could become dangerous.Finally, locally, 3 to 4 inches of rain is expected in parts of the South stretching into the Appalachians through Tuesday. Therefore, flash flooding will be possible, especially in the hillier terrain of the southern Appalachians and Southern Tennessee Valley.It will be possible that some regions will deal with flash flooding and ongoing tornadic storms at the same time on Easter Sunday.
