The project is about a house located in Maitencillo, Chile. The plot is situated close to the most rural area of ​​the town and far from the coastal edge, being a quiet place, isolated from the bustle and the summer collapse of the beach. The Coastal Mountain Range is the main surrounding view of the site and the sea panorama becomes a country backyard.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe strategy is created from the orientation of the land and the specific position of the elements of the environment: The longitudinal development of the property is defined in the north-south direction, while the width, in the east-west direction.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreSave this picture!Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreTo the north is the street of the neighborhood and a line of houses that look towards the site of the project, therefore as a first guideline it is decided to open the house to the south, giving the “back” Towards the street, dividing the project into two wings, through a corridor. The services areas are oriented to the north, while the bedrooms and living/dining room are to the south.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreOpening the enclosures to the south involves some disadvantages and at the same time opportunities: An indirect and sifted light but at the same time colder spaces. Hence it is taken as a second guideline to use a northern skylight to go along with the corridor. This element is responsible for nourishing with natural light for a big part of the day and gradually heat the bedrooms for cold nights.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreSave this picture!Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe management of the natural light and the control of the views define a façade proposal that gives the house on its most exposed face a continuous treatment through a wooden framework that opens in the patios corresponding to the bathrooms, letting enter the light but covering any direct view towards the interior of the enclosures.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThis house is designed according to a defined user: A married couple of older adults and their son with physical mobility problems, therefore the layout is developed on one level, lifting the house through a table of buried wooden piles in the sand. The difference between the levels was solved with a ramp in the access and another ramp to descend to the backyard. In this way, the approach of the house makes the physiognomy of the land coexist with a plant extended on its longest side.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreProject gallerySee allShow lessBlack Mirror: What Can it Teach us About the Future of Architecture?ArticlesWhite Arkitekter’s New Take on Traditional Swedish Cold BathhousesArchitecture News Share Felipe Giannini, Sergio Villarroel ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920611/la-divisa-house-gvaa Clipboard Chile CopyAbout this officeGVAAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMaitencilloChilePublished on July 09, 2019Cite: “La Divisa House / GVAA” [Casa la divisa / GVAA] 09 Jul 2019.

The project comprised alterations and additions to an existing red brick cottage in O’Connor. The primary components of the client brief included improved access to natural daylight & connection to rear yard, additional living spaces, good passive thermal performance, and flexibility of use. The existing cottage was renovated to provide new flooring finishes, new double glazed windows, wall and roof insulation and re-programming of some interior rooms. Strategically located skylights were added to increase natural daylight exposure and new roof tiles and sarking were installed. The existing house was largely retained in terms detailing and trims, The northern portion of the old house was re-programmed into a parents wing comprising bedroom, robes and ensuite. The southern portion of the house is used as living and “flexible” spaces that can become a study, spare bedroom, work out room etc.Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectThe new works are located along the southern side of the block to preserve northern yard. The wing runs parallel to a stand of existing mature Elm Trees. There was a commitment by the project team to keep the Elms for their visual and cooling qualities. To preserve the health of the Elm trees, the new wing was elevated and built on lengthened piered footings with concrete edge beams. This reduced the impact on the Elm roots, and allows water and air to flow around root zones. Roof water from the new wing runs into an agg drain that discharges water around the Elm tree root zones. The Elms form a beautiful back drop to the new wing when looking south from the rear yard, and also provide a landscape vista through the new highlight windows.The new wing is conceived as a distinctly different architecture that allows for a clear preservation of the proportions and readability of the original cottage. The new wing includes kitchen, living & dining, laundry, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The architecture is expressive of function with a skillion roof lifting to the north to allow excellent solar access to new living spaces. The living spaces can open along the northern edge to provide convenient and flexible access to the rear yard. High light windows along the southern side allow excellent cross ventilation and glimpses of the mature Elm tree stand (without compromising privacy)Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectThe project also takes serious account of solar passive and sustainability principles. The new wing includes an insulated burnished concrete slab which provides excellent isolated thermal mass for use during winter and summer. Large eaves and external motorized blinds allow for summer sun to be kept off the slab when required. High level windows on northern and southern sides allow for good ventilation and night purging. Electric heat pumps are used for domestic hot water and infrastructure has been built in for a future PV array. The retention of the elms and incorporation of passive rain harvesting for their roots assists in reducing on block temperature during summer.Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectProject gallerySee allShow lessPrivate Villa JUGE / AtSpace ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSummmoru House / NOMALSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

The task was to design a home for a young family, where they could entertain and spend time enjoying each other’s company, with space for both kids and grown-ups. A simple, low-maintenance house, with plenty of space and, more importantly, light. Metal cladding was used on the surfaces exposed to the climate, and the warmth of regional wood was preferred on the covered areas, such as the terrace. Inside, the kitchen and the family room are the main spaces, and it was imperative they had lots of light and a nice flow to the rest of the house.Save this picture!© Justin MulletSave this picture!© Justin MulletSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Justin MulletThe main challenge was the solar orientation. The site has superb south views, so sunlight and landscape do not go hand in hand. That is how we came up with the idea to open the house with big south-facing picture windows, to frame the views, and to receive sunlight from the north, through a zenithal solution. Thus, it was decided to introduce light from the family room, which, being on an open second level, allows light to reach the more public spaces downstairs, such as the living and dining room. We also took advantage of the sloping roof’s geometry and structure to open up the kitchen’s ceiling, generating a visual continuity between the traditional and ceiling windows. This feature gave an unexpected spaciousness to the kitchen, which was a good surprise.Save this picture!© Justin MulletSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Justin MulletSave this picture!© Justin MulletThe highest quality products were used to ensure the integrity of the thermal enclosure. Projected cellulose on walls and roofs, with an 8” minimum thickness, combined with doors and windows with minimal thermal transmittance values guarantee the building’s thermal insulation and correct ventilation, which are fundamental in extreme regions such as Aysén. It is remarkable how a south-facing house can achieve such high thermal and light gains, without sacrificing the views, while completely answering the task’s premises.Save this picture!© Justin MulletSave this picture!IsoSave this picture!© Justin MulletProject gallerySee allShow lessÁguas Claras Residence / Rodrigo Simão ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsEugenia Wow Condos / Live Desarrollos + reyes ríos + larraín arquitectosSelected Projects Share 2020 Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Sierra Pacific Windows, ASC Building Products, MK, Trimble, Velux Save this picture!© Justin Mullet+ 42Curated by Clara Ott Sharelast_img read more

Five houses occupy a corner lot in a residential neighborhood in Curitiba.

Only the gates mark the entrances.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosThe initial challenge was to deploy the five houses – which was a demand from the client and builder – on a perfectly square plot.

We had the opportunity to acquire a property at a very favorable price in a prominent location in the village of Beringen in Klettgau. We wanted to use this to implement our idea of architecture by means of a replacement building. In order for this to succeed, cooperation with the municipality was crucial, in addition to countless structural and official aspects. Thanks to the resulting partnership between the municipality, the client, and the architect, it was possible to realize a building that offers added value for the site and the community at large. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenAttitude. The «Haus zum Pudel» was also born from the will to develop a piece of the village and to show our architectural attitude. This goal was pursued tenaciously despite unfavorable economic conditions. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenLocation. In a prominent location, a piece of the village was repaired. Instead of the 60-year-old kiosk with a bus stop and a nested, hardly habitable residential building, there is now a striking volume. This follows the street space with a bend. At the rear, reference is made to the existing neighboring property. The outdoor space belonging to the property is at the same time a public space. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofMan. The site helped dictate the space program: A bus stop combined with a store and two small studios for people who are looking for a home outside the standardized residential world. The uses adapt to the conditions of the site. This creates unfamiliar but also liberating situations that invite people to appropriate the architecture. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ladina BischofDialogue. Intensive dialogues and negotiations over years were necessary to find good solutions for all parties involved. A good solution means that everyone experiences added value: Through a private initiative, the community receives a new, distinctive building that enhances the public space. In return, it has contributed to the financing with a loan, as well as providing guarantees for the rental of the studios. The neighborhood benefits from the clarification of the situation. The villagers get next to the bus stop a quality outdoor space, which invites people to meet. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenGeneralist. The house is characterized by the effort to discuss as many aspects as possible, from the setting to the detail. The architect should increasingly return to the building with its myriad facets, understanding the construction and building methods. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofCraft. From the beginning, the goal was to create an architecture of value with simple materials refined by craftsmanship. The unrendered masonry, the exposed concrete or the solid wooden floors show traces of the work process. Cladding and partially recycled materials distinguish certain places and create an exciting counterpart to the otherwise raw appearance. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofConstruction. Comprehensible construction in concrete, stone, and wood creates credibility. A cavity wall, braced by the interior concrete walls, supports the wood roof. Load distribution and construction are readable and allow users to appropriate the house. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofMaterial. Where possible, the materials were untreated and directly installed. In this way, they develop a presence and immediacy that is linked to rural architecture. The installations are surface-mounted and allow multiple uses, e.g. as a holder for the showerhead. Repairs and adjustments are easy to carry out. The functioning of the installation is comprehensible and trustworthy. The quality of the raw material and construction is deliberately shown. The specially designed apparatuses and fittings also reflect engagement with the task. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofSensuality. The architecture conveys a new image in the village fabric. At the same time, the form, the type of openings, and the materialization are familiar to the people through the history of the place. This creates something new and familiar. The building, with its small, rectangular openings, the stone-framed, large-format entrances, the narrow canopy, as well as the solid materialization, is remotely reminiscent of the «Trotten», which can be found in every village in the area. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofCourage and curiosity. We have embarked on an adventure with no certain outcome, trusting that the courage will pay off. But only the history of the future will show whether the structure will prove its worth. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenProject gallerySee allShow lessVertical Partitions Redefine Spaces Quickly, Easily, and with StyleArticlesGoogle Gets Approval for Downtown West Campus Designed by SITELAB Urban StudioArchitecture News Share 2021 Photographs:  Schaub Stierli Fotografen, Ladina Bischof Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: KWC, Seves Glassblock, Bremo, Laufen AG, System Murfor Haus zum Pudel / Marazzi ReinhardtSave this projectSaveHaus zum Pudel / Marazzi Reinhardt “COPY” CopyHouses•Beringen, Switzerlandlast_img read more

UrbanLeaf can live with the word “chugger”

first_img Howard Lake | 29 August 2005 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. UrbanLeaf can live with the word “chugger” “It would be great if the job face-to-face fundraisers do was seen as what it is; positive, effective and worthwhile. And it would be great if the fundraisers themselves were seen as dedicated, well-trained and compassionate people, rather than a nuisance out for their own financial gain. “But I don’t think we should take ourselves too seriously and if thats what people call us, that’s what they call us. Face-to-face fundraisers come in for all sorts of abuse from all sorts of people every day, they always have and always rise above it. Being called a chugger is frustrating but no more than that really.”Clive argues that there has been a steady improvement in professionlism as the industry has matured and also as it has become more regulated.
