The house has a regular and symmetric displacement, drew according the 16th century scholar architecture. House and chapel define the street and a small square that plays an important role in the urban public space of the village. Save this picture!© Nuno GasparThe property was the seat of a wide range of vineyard acres, punctuated by several small buildings of agricultural character built to support the productive activities. Those buildings were meanwhile abandoned. They consist in a group of small vernacular stone buildings, placed around a small patio next to the main house. The project consists in its conversion into hotel rooms. Save this picture!© Nuno GasparOur intervention can be summarized by the dispersion of hotel rooms within the small buildings avoiding new constructions. The proposal was about to open new spaces within the cluster of buildings and reveal the beauty of the new use within the old ruins. The proportions of the old buildings were corrected and new materials find they place among the old stones.

Implanted on a large agricultural estate, the house is built in the middle of the property’s vineyard on an almost flat terrain adjacent to a cork oak forest. The calm and serenity of the surroundings welcomes the one storey building which tries to interfere as little as possible with the landscape by aligning alongside the natural elements that compose the peaceful backdrop.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe different functions of the house are organized into three rectangular volumes of similar sizes, each one possessing a flat roof. The volumes are arranged parallel and orthogonally respecting the landscape’s lines of strength and the house’s different areas – common areas and private areas – which are distinguished by a distinct materiality that also combines harmoniously with each other as well as the natural surroundings.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe common areas, confined to a Rammed Earth volume, communicate with the entire length of the outdoor terrace which functions as an extension of the living areas as well as bringing shade to the west façade. The two remaining volumes contain six suites, an office, a small guest bathroom, a guest bedroom and a storage area with direct access from the exterior.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe design opted to incorporate a small patio that brings light to the spaces that are exposed to the north-west. This patio is aligned with a larger patio to the south, enhancing a visual crossing that marks the transition to the more private area of the house.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe demand for sustainable and more ecological solutions were the drive behind the introduction of a Rammed Earth volume, a vernacular building technique still recurrent in some areas of Portugal. The natural beauty of the earth is left visible on the exterior configuring the common areas that include a living room, a dinning area and a kitchen. This materiality also ensures greater thermal and acoustic comfort inside the house, providing a cool environment in the summer and mild in the winter with the indoor humidity constant throughout the year. It is also an ecological construction method that enables a strong fusion with the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe remaining volumes consist of a concrete structure, brick masonry walls with external insulation which are plastered and painted white, giving continuity to the existing buildings on the estate.Save this picture!© João MorgadoTECHNICAL DESCRIPTIONThe option to build part of the design in Rammed Earth was due to the confidence in the added value that the technique represents both environmentally and aesthetically.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe intention was to combine tradition and modernity, seeking to take advantage of the best of each.Save this picture!SectionUsing both earth from the estate as well as earth located 50km away, due to the presence of soil with a high sand content on site, the freestanding walls were erected using continuous wooden formwork and mechanical compression to compact the earth. Two buttresses were introduced on the longer walls in order to improve structural behaviour; to ensure the resistance of the construction against tensile stress. The Rammed Earth was reinforced with fibreglass mesh in-between layers and overlapped in all corners of the polygon.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe introduction of a fibreglass mesh allowed the construction of continuous earth layers without vertical joints, enhancing the beauty of the material. The building team was knowledgeable of the material and the building technique, although it was the first time that they would leave it visible on the exterior, protected by a flat roof.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe roof consists of laminated wooden beams that are attached to the upper lintel and covered with a sandwich panel made on site and finished with a clear colour impermeable screen.Save this picture!© João MorgadoCombined with architectural option of a flat roof, the presence of generous openings required solutions that would overcome these constraints. This was achieved using the actual doorframes made of laminated wood which act as a bracing element and as part of the formwork for the Rammed Earth. Finally, to preserve the earth’s appearance in the best possible way, a protective coating of water glass and casein was applied.Save this picture!© João MorgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessCape Horn Illustration Creates Detailed Ink Drawings of Chicago ResidencesArchitecture NewsV Factory Export Division / Zemberek DesignSelected Projects Share Architects: Blaanc Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Area:  319 m² Area:  319 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Vineyard House / Blaanc CopyHouses•Montijo, Portugal “COPY” Save this picture!© João Morgado+ 34 Sharelast_img read more

Uxolo Apartments is the first completed micro-unit residential development located in the Cape Town CBD. The project consists of 35 residential units ranging between 24m² micro-studio units and 40m² loft units, as well as a lobby and retail area on the Ground Floor on a stand of only 195.5m².Save this picture!© Paris BrummerThe initial development intention for the project was to create an iconic short-stay accommodation destination in Cape Town, with some long-term tenants, in the same way, that Tokyo has the Nagakin Capsule Tower and Rotterdam has the Cube House. The Covid-19 pandemic has however resulted in a re-evaluation of this approach, focusing on longer-stay tenants. This resulted in units that were far more complex in design to meet the considerably more extensive requirements of a permanent tenant. The change in focus required some additional planning but resulted in a building that arguably better responds to a need in the South African housing market.Save this picture!© Paris BrummerSave this picture!Typical Floor PlanFor residents of South African cities, there are currently few ‘curated’ and cost-effective alternatives to the South African norm of urban sprawl and long commutes. The project located on Vredenberg Lane, an alley joining Long Street and within walking distance of Kloof and Loop streets, is within easy reach of offices, eateries, transport routes, and amenities. The relatively small size of the units ensures that they are affordable to a large section of the market.Save this picture!© Paris BrummerSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Paris BrummerIn order to successfully accommodate a long-term tenant in the micro-units special attention was paid to detailing the interior of the units. A single joinery unit, almost stretching the length of the unit, accommodates all the possible daily needs and activities of a resident. The joinery installation was designed, manufactured, and installed by Kink Design, a branch of Two Five Five Architects. The fact that the joinery installation was conceived and managed efficiently in the same office ensured that the language of the project stayed coherent. The design of the unit simultaneously accommodates a fully kitted kitchen, built in cupboard, slide-out study desk, abundant concealed storage as well as a murphy bed that stows away to reveal a sofa for the lounge.Save this picture!© Paris BrummerThere are four of these studio units on each of the eight floors, along with a loft unit on every second floor. To accommodate these units the small site area available had to be used efficiently, with the building built right up to the 0m building lines. To allow for natural light in the units glass blocks were used, instead of stepping the façade back for windows.  The resultant flat façade was treated just like that, a flat plain on which a tapestry can be laid. The design takes inspiration from traditional patterns as seen in the work of Esther Mhlangu, as well as contemporary textile design such as rugs by Ninevites. The glass bricks on the façade were combined with different face bricks by Corobrik to create a ‘tapestry’ that is low in maintenance and should age well.Save this picture!© Paris BrummerSave this picture!Urban ElevationSave this picture!© André KrigeThe tapestry façade is punctuated by bright pink ‘marshmallow’ balconies on the street façade. These balconies create a value-added footprint to the units from which the residents can look over the city to the iconic Table Mountain. At the same time, the balconies also hint the ‘iconic’ image that that was part of the developmental brief.

WWP Southern Marxism School sparks deeper commitment

first_imgIn the Virginia mountainsOver the Aug. 11-13 weekend, in the picturesque mountains of Virginia, 14 young candidates and senior comrades of Workers World Party came together to discuss, learn and deepen their understanding of what it means to be part of a revolutionary cadre organization. To be a member of Workers World Party requires commitment, not only to struggle, but to continual learning.The Southern Marxism School began by welcoming comrades and candidates from Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and New York. Grounding, introductions and orientation kicked off the first night in preparation for classes and discussions the next day.Topics discussed included imperialism and its attacks on Latin America, particularly on contemporary ­Venezuela; the historical role of the Bolshevik paper Iskra in early 20th-century Russia; the current role of Workers World paper, and how to find one’s place in the party through writing; Marxist economics and terminology; Queer, Trans and Women’s Liberation, which led to a powerful discussion on the role of the police and military in a workers’ revolution in light of the ban of trans people from the military; and Identity Politics, Cadre and Building the Party in the South. Members and candidates were left reflecting on how to cement themselves in a struggle identity.A candidate comrade stated: “Our conversation surrounding identity politics really resonated with me. I came away with a better understanding of a revolutionary identity. Through the support of branch leadership, comprised mainly of female and gender nonconforming people of color, I’ve been able to root myself in our collective struggle towards liberation.”“Whether it was discussions about the role Marxism-Leninism plays within Black and Brown communities or learning how the party stands in solidarity with and fights for oppressed and marginalized people and nations fighting imperialism, I discovered what it means to be a member of Workers World. With the mentorship from powerful, queer, people of color party leaders I experienced the true essence of comradery,” said another candidate comrade.During the Aug. 12 classes and discussions, reports came in from comrades fighting back in Charlottesville, Va., including reports of the injuries to dozens and the death of Heather Heyer. Comrades found comfort and strength in each other, remaining rooted in a Marxist-Leninist perspective and committed to the revolutionary path forward. Pause and reflection came that evening on a mile-high mountaintop, in what would become a calm before the storm of struggle poised to form in Durham, N.C.The weekend ended with discussions of upcoming initiatives and pledging commitments toward local work. The Durham branch, in particular, is ripe for growth, with a strong dedication to theory and practice.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Uniting Over Housing

Prior to joining NHC, Dworkin worked as a senior policy advisor at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where he advised senior Treasury Department officials on matters related to housing and community development. His expertise includes credit availability; housing finance reform, mortgage servicing, affordable housing, access to credit, residential housing vacancy, abandonment and demolition and community stabilization strategies. He also served as a member of the White House’s Detroit interagency team, where his responsibilities included developing and implementing strategies to assist in the City of Detroit’s revitalization. in Commentary, Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles About Author: David Dworkin Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Affordability Borrowers Congress David Dworkin Dodd-Frank reform Fannie Mae FHA Finance Freddie Mac Homes House HOUSING Lenders mortgage National Housing Conference Senate Tax Treasury 2018-11-30 Radhika Ojha Uniting Over Housing November 30, 2018 2,501 Views Previous: Dual Markets Next: Supreme Court States “If Sought” is Seeking Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Commentary / Uniting Over Housing The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The midterm elections are history but Democrats and Republicans are still arguing with each other over who won. The answer may be that we did – Americans who want their government to work. As freshmen members of Congress are trying to figure out how they will afford a home in DC while maintaining one in their district, they should consider how housing can be an issue on which a divided government can come together.Many Republicans and Democrats, already understand that the affordable housing crisis is a top line agenda item. So, a Republican-led Senate and a Democrat-led House can serve the American home well if Members of Congress are given thoughtful answers to the questions they are being asked by their constituents such as: Why is it still so hard to get a mortgage on an affordable house? Why is my rent so high? Why are there so many people experiencing homelessness in my city? Why do I still live with my parents? Where am I going to live when I retire on Social Security? Asking these questions is the easy part. Answering them with action and results is much harder. Here’s what legislators can do in the first six months of the new Congress before the 2020 campaign overwhelms their ability to work together:Fund Affordable HousingAffordable housing production creates jobs and helps take pressure off low and moderate-income renters struggling to make ends meet. According to the National Housing Conference’s Paycheck to Paycheck database, a carpenter can’t afford to buy a modest home in DC.Senators Orin Hatch (R-UT) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA) have written bipartisan legislation to expand the housing tax credit. Congress should take that up immediately. It’s not enough by itself to solve the affordable housing crisis, but it’s a good start.A responsible housing component of a national infrastructure bill can also help families spend more of their time and money on raising their kids and saving for the future instead of worrying about how they can afford to buy a home or make their next rent payment. Fix What’s Wrong With Our Housing Finance SystemLeaving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in conservatorship is not the answer. The parts of our housing finance system that remain broken can be fixed without creating an entirely new system out of whole cloth that no one will capitalize. “If you build it, they will come,” is not a strategy for repairing nearly one-fifth of the world’s largest economy, it’s a tagline for a movie. Congress will follow if Treasury Secretary Mnuchin leads. America has never had a Treasury Secretary who understands the complexities and opportunities of the housing market as well.  Mnuchin should put together the same kind of nonpartisan and diverse group of housing leaders to consult with and offer a plan for administrative as well as statutory reform that worked well for him with Dodd-Frank Reform. All deficit spending is not equal, and neither are all tax cuts. The last tax bill slashed estate taxes to help 10,000 dead rich people. It also created Opportunity Zones, which could bring hundreds of billions of dollars off the sidelines and into communities that need it most. Expand the Federal Finance Bank’s Multifamily Risk Share ProgramSince 2014, this little-known program has closed or committed $2.4 billion in financing for 24,857 affordable apartments in 14 states. Under the FHA-FFB partnership, lenders must take 50 percent of the credit risk and have the financial capacity to support this commitment – an extraordinary mitigation of federal risk. The FHA-FFB platform is also sufficiently streamlined and efficient to accommodate the modest-sized loans that rural and other smaller and more affordable properties need; 35 percent of all FHA-FFB loans closed as of June 30, 2018, had original balances below $5 million. There’s simply no good reason for the Trump administration not to embrace and expand this program.This country’s first comprehensive housing act was passed in 1949 and it was developed and fought for by a diverse group of social advocates and homebuilders, labor unions and investors, brought together by the National Housing Conference. It was passed by a divided government and signed by a President who barely won his first election as president. The bill promised “a decent home and suitable living environment for every American family.” It’s not too late to make good on that commitment.Today, America is overdue for a comprehensive national housing policy. If Democrats want to show how they can govern, and Republicans want to prove they are more than the President’s closing arguments on immigration, housing can be the place they come together.

Suspected kidnapping of 7-month-old girl was a hoax, mom arrested: Police

first_imgHenderson County Sheriffs Office(ASHEVILLE, N.C.) — A 35-year-old North Carolina mother has been charged with attempted first-degree murder of her 7-month-old daughter.Asheville police in North Carolina received a 911 call Thursday saying Krista Noelle Madden and her baby, Shaylie, had been kidnapped. The call did not come from Madden, police said at a press conference Friday.Authorities were able to trace Madden’s cellphone to Henderson County and police officers were sent to the area where her phone had been tracked. They also received a call that an abandoned car was found on a “remote, gravel, private drive” near the location of the Madden’s phone.Upon arriving at the scene, police found Madden, who said she had escaped a kidnapping. The abandoned car was identified as hers.Police dogs found no trace of anyone else in the area except for Madden, Henderson police said at the press conference.Later Thursday, police received another call just before 8 p.m., this time from a family saying they found a baby who appeared to have been tossed into a ravine.The baby was found after a woman went to check her mailbox and thought she heard a baby crying and called her husband for help.“[The husband] arrives at the scene, descends about a 75-foot ravine to find the child alone with a car seat,” Henderson County Sheriff Lowell Griffin said.Shaylie, who was admitted to a local hospital, is believed to be in good condition, according to Griffin.Police now say there is no indication a kidnapping took place, although it is possible the original 911 caller truly believed Madden and Shaylie had been kidnapped.Police took Madden into custody Thursday night and served her with an arrest warrant.Madden, who is being held on $750,000 bond, is due in court Friday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
