With a magnificent view as the main feature of this retreat located on the hill of a small village some 150km from mexico city, one-half-house aims to live landscape under a canopy with as few interior elements as possible. Save this picture!A fireplace, a kitchen bar and a marble platform 20m long laid as a free floor plan for public areas and garage on top of a solid block which houses the rest of the program, namely services, three bedrooms and a family room. Save this picture!This covered roof garden becomes the most important part of the house. The most crowded area in which the family will spend most of the time is also the most ambiguous place of the house, one-half-house is then one-half terrace, protected from the exterior conditions when needed by means of four meter tall sliding glass panels towards the landscape and a wall as high as the garage doors towards the street always detached from the concrete canopy to turn it into a fence more than a wall. Save this picture!The exposed concrete canopy emphasizes views and deals with an anachronistic local code on context which calls for typical-construction looking elements and materials such as pitched roofs with Spanish tile simply by flipping it. In this way, views and orientation of the house towards south makes sense blocking sun on summer not on winter. Save this picture!The solid block is all exposed concrete on the inside and marble on the outside just like the roof in order to reinforce the idea of a solid 3 meter high platform with slots carefully located to glance through the surroundings from the bed, desk or the shower. Save this picture!The rest of the site remains with its natural slope and local therefore highly adaptive vegetation that frame the view and wraps a family vegetable garden. Save this picture!Interior materials go out of the house and exterior materials come into the house. One-half-house promotes blurring limits between indoor and outdoor, the Mediterranean house revisited versus the glass hermetic air conditioned house, live the view rather than see it.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessRubi Offices / BailoRull ADD+ ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsHunter Douglas Plant / Mathias KlotzSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeBGP ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasValle de BravoHousing3D ModelingMexicoPublished on August 16, 2008Cite: “Black House / BGP Arquitectura” 16 Aug 2008.

University prepares to build research facility

first_imgSaturday, the University broke ground on McCourtney Hall, a “world-class research facility” to be located east of the Hesburgh Library, according to a Notre Dame press release.“McCourtney Hall creates a great opportunity for the research programs in science and engineering at Notre Dame,” Robert Bernhard, vice president for research at Notre Dame, said in a statement. “The building is designed as a collaborative and adaptive space to encourage cross-disciplinary research interaction along the entire continuum of basic and applied research. … We expect the building to be a game-changer for science and engineering research at Notre Dame.”Set for completion in June 2016, the building will house the department of chemical and biomolecular engineering from the College of Engineering as well as the department of chemistry and biochemistry from the College of Science. It will also feature about 100,000 square feet of laboratory and team spaces, 40,000 square feet of which will remain “unassigned to facilitate new hires,” the release stated.“McCourtney Hall is the first dedicated research building to be constructed in a planned larger East Campus Research Complex,” the release stated. “The research quad will create, for the first time at Notre Dame, a space for highly collaborative, state-of-the-art research that crosses the Colleges of Science and Engineering. The building will support research space needs that are currently unmet on campus and facilitate current Strategic Research Initiatives and the Advancing Our Vision hiring plans within the molecular sciences.”A $35 million gift from alumnus Ted H. McCourtney and his wife, Tracy, underwrote the construction of the building. Alumnus and Notre Dame trustee Thomas J.

Huskers upset Badgers at home

first_imgNebraska handed the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team its fourth conference loss in an overtime match at the McClimon Complex Friday. When Nebraska (6-7-1, 3-3-0 Big Ten) sophomore forward Mayme Conroy hit the game-winning goal just a minute into the first overtime period, it completed her bid for a hat trick, stunning Wisconsin (7-5-1, 1-4-1) at home. Conroy’s three scores gives her a total of 11 goals on the season, a mark good for second in the Big Ten.Head coach Paula Wilkins attributed turnovers to the Badgers’ loss and Conroy’s big night.“We made some mistakes that we just can’t do,” Wilkins said. “We gave the ball away in two bad areas to their best player. Obviously [Conroy] getting a hat trick is a credit to her but we need to do a better job in possession for sure.”The Badgers found themselves in a hole against the Cornhuskers when Conroy scored the game’s first goal in the 13th minute.Nebraska again put pressure on Wisconsin’s defense in the 24th minute. UW goalkeeper Genevieve Richard blocked the initial shot, but Conroy scored on the rebound, giving the Cornhuskers an early 2-0 lead.Senior defender and team captain Lindsey Johnson said Nebraska put a lot of early pressure on the defense, which forced them to commit some costly mistakes.“Those goals were just because we made some stupid mistakes,” Johnson said of Nebraska’s two early scores. “They were playing really fast at us and we tried to control that but we kind of just gave them some goals.”Wisconsin responded quickly when sophomore forward Cara Walls found the back of the net in the 24th minute, giving her five goals on the season.The Badgers continued to put plenty of pressure on the Cornhuskers’ defense and were fable to break through for the second time and even the game at two when freshman forward Lindsey Holmes scored her first career goal on a cross from redshirt junior Paige Adams.“It was awesome. It was the best feeling ever,” Holmes said of her first goal. “I just made a diagonal run and Paige played an awesome ball above.”Wilkins credited her team’s ability to settle down and play smarter for evening the game back at two.“I think the game settled down a little bit and we actually settled down,” Wilkins said. “They did a great job of getting pressure on the ball when we entered passes in. I think the spaces opened up a little more and we were a little calm about moving the ball around to create those opportunities.”Despite having a few chances, neither team was able to break the tie in regular time. In overtime, Nebraska struck quickly when Conroy scored goal from 20 yards out in the 91st minute.Johnson said the defense may have been caught off guard by Conroy’s quick attempt on goal in overtime.“I’m not really sure [how Conroy scored] to be honest,” Johnson said of the overtime goal. “I think that we lost focus for a little bit and we didn’t clear the ball when we should have, so we gave up a goal.”Friday’s game marked the third time in three matches where Wisconsin has given up three goals to the opposition.Johnson said her defensive squad must tighten things up moving forward.“I think we need to work on our decision-making when we are under pressure,” Johnson said. “We need to just kick [the ball] out because that is where we caused most of our problems tonight.”The Badgers’ offense generated a lot of pressure against the Cornhuskers’ defense, getting off 13 shots, but was unable to finish most of its chances.Holmes also noticed Wisconsin’s inability to finish offensively.“We were really good with pressuring the ball,” Holmes said. “We just need to work on finishing and make sure we finish our opportunities at the end of the day.”The loss drops Wisconsin to 10th in the Big Ten, its last conference victory coming almost a month ago against Michigan State.Monday, Wisconsin will take a break from Big Ten play to take on in-state foe UW-Green Bay (4-7-2, 1-2-1 Horizon League) which is coming off a 2-1 win over Youngstown State.Wisconsin is 3-0 against Green Bay in Wilkins’ tenure.last_img read more
