The Sunshine Canyon Residence was, in a way, created by the Fourmile Canyon Fire of 2010. The owners, who lost their home in that fire, wanted to rebuild near their original home site. Embracing the beauty of the burned landscape, they chose a steeply sloped southern facing site, also burned by Fourmile fire.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannFollowing a long period of intensive mining exploration, the new site sat untouched for years prior to the fire. Abandoned mine shafts, rusted steel mining structures and car tracks, and mounds of mine tailings are scattered near the site. Directly below the home site lies a test pit for a mine that was never completed. Until the fire, these remnants were increasingly faint. The fire exposed this rich history as well as the sculptural granite that forms the site.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe home responds to this dramatic site through a simple form – juxtaposed to the landscape while inspired by the fragmented granite boulders and mining equipment. A simple bar hovers above the slope, angled at the ends to address distant views and accept entry from the road, and shifted to allow views and movement through a breezeway at one end. The form is supported on slender steel columns and simple concrete shear walls, minimizing the impact of construction on the site while allowing the slope to flow under the house without interruption. In this way, the house preserves the landscape as it was found and intensifies the reading of the slope – allowing the mine pit and the boulders along the ridgeline to remain untouched.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannMost of the glazing faces due south to maximize solar gain in a climate dominated by the need for heat, but blessed with a yearly abundance of sunshine. The south side has a deep overhang adjusted to welcome the sun in winter months while completely shading the interior on hot summer days. Consistent and efficient heating is powered by a geothermal heat pump drilled into the granite mountainside, and is coupled with a concrete floor to absorb energy from the sun. Spray foam insulation creates an airtight envelope, and an eight KW ground-mounted PV array supplies enough power to nearly offset all electricity use.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannMaterials were selected for their economy, function, beauty, and connection to the history of the site. The exterior is clad in the most economical and durable material possible, the same rusty corrugated steel as the nearby mine structures’ cladding. Exterior decks and walls are covered with untreated Ipe, which will weather to a medium-grey color reminiscent of the weathered trunks of the burned trees surrounding the site. On the interior, all casework is clear vertical grain fir, reminiscent of the un-weathered interiors of the trees. The interior walls are pure white to capture the constantly changing colors of daylight against the landscape, and to create a seamless transition from inside to out.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAtkins Designs Striking Office Complex in GuangzhouArchitecture NewsSALVA46 Coliving in Barcelona / MIEL Arquitectos + STUDIO P10Selected Projects Share 2013 Area: 2200 ft² Area: 2200 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project United States 2013 CopyAbout this officeTHA ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBoulderHousesUnited StatesPublished on August 05, 2014Cite: “Sunshine Canyon Residence / THA Architecture” 05 Aug 2014.

Like so many other buildings in Portugal, this has been a ruin for decades. Located in the nº 27 of square Largo 1º de Dezembro in São Pedro, Sintra, a world heritage village with a mountain full of Palaces, Castle, Convents, and other natural marvels. This small building was completely renovated to accommodate two tourist apartments. Its architectural and landscape surroundings make it perfectly integrated into the historic setting and serene environment of Sintra.Save this picture!© Rute RaposoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Rute RaposoWe have believed from the outset in its unique location and peculiar features, such as the small back courtyards lying over a large green area of shrubs and trees. The project sought a solution of continuity, maintaining all original aspects, with a division of two independent dwellings, in the ground floor and first floor, and the use of the attic for housing purposes, increasing the height at the middle but maintaining the edge. The courtyards have been restored and cleaned for an outdoor experience of all surrounding natural environment. The story of this building is the story of the village, a place full of history and with a great potential for renovation. We hope that our small contribution can add to this generalized re-qualification of the public and private space.Save this picture!© Rute RaposoProject gallerySee allShow lessJohn Wardle Architects Unveils New Design for University of Tasmania CampusArchitecture NewsStokkøya House / Kappland ArkitekterSelected Projects Share Area: 1560 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ArchDaily 2017 São Pedro 27 / Pereira Miguel Arquitectos Lead Architects: Photographs Photographs: Rute Raposo Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Pereira Miguel Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920281/sao-pedro-27-pereira-miguel-arquitectos Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920281/sao-pedro-27-pereira-miguel-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” Luís Pereira Miguel CopyAbout this officePereira Miguel ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSintraPortugalPublished on July 19, 2019Cite: “São Pedro 27 / Pereira Miguel Arquitectos” [Casa São Pedro 27 / Pereira Miguel Arquitectos] 19 Jul 2019.

A judge dismissed the case in a hearing today.Many journalists attended a 4 July hearing in a legal action by Sheikh Muhammad Taqi Al-Mawla, the head of the Iraqi organization that arranges Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages to Mecca, who is suing the journalist Majid Al-Kaabi for 2 billion dinars (1.2 million euros) in damages for an article criticizing these pilgrimages. Kaabi testified that his article did not attack any public figure or political party, and that it was the media’s duty to point out errors in the organization of the pilgrimages. The trial was adjourned until 25 July.Baghdad military command spokesman Gen. Qassem Atta announced on 20 June that he was suing Fakhri Karim, the editor of the daily Al-Mada, and three of his journalists – Daoud Ali, Ali Hussein and Ali Abdel Sada – for 8 million dinars (4,800 euros) in damages in a libel suit over opinion pieces criticizing the behaviour of the security forces during demonstrations.Politicians who have brought legal actions designed to gag the media include Chamber of Representatives speaker Osama Al-Nujaifi, who sued Al-Mada’s editor and two of his journalists, Daoud Ali and Ali Hussein, for 150 million dinars (90,000 euros) in damages on 2 June for articles criticising the maintenance of quotas in the selection of parliamentarians, bargaining over posts and the shortcomings of a law cutting parliamentarians’ pay.The industry and resources ministry’s press office threatened to sue the satellite TV station Al-Sharqiya for blaming the ministry on 10 May for the previous week’s murder of cement company boss Salam Abdallah, who had threatened, a few days before his death, to release documents proving the existence of corruption within the ministry.In a 21 May press release, Reporters Without Borders condemned the libel suit that Faraj Haidari, the president of Iraq’s electoral commission, brought against Hashem Hassan over an article he wrote for the 4 May issue of the newspaper Al-Mashreq in which he questioned the commission’s legitimacy and professionalism, referred to corruption allegations and accused it of wasting public funds. Haidari announced that he was withdrawing his suit on 2 June.Reporters Without Borders has also noted new forms of intimidation. Kadhi Miqdadi was expelled from the Union of Journalists on 4 July as a result of an article criticizing its effectiveness.Violence by security forcesPrime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki’s bodyguards manhandled reporters and photographers in the prime minister’s presence in Karbala (150 km southwest of Baghdad) on 3 July during celebrations marking the creation of Karbala province. Journalists with several TV stations including Al-Sumariyah TV, Al-Iraqiya TV, Afaq and Al-Masar and news agencies including the Iraqi National News Agency were denied access on the grounds that there were no police dogs to inspect them. The journalists staged a sit-in to demand an apology from the prime minister, who left without meeting with them.Hassan Salah Al-Talaqani and Mohamed Saleh Al-Saeedi, two journalists working for the Anba’ Al-Iraq news agency, were attacked by the environment minister and his bodyguards in the centre of Baghdad on 15 June when they photographed an altercation between the minister and passers-by. The bodyguards fired in the air to scare away the journalists, who were then beaten. Their camera equipment and mobile phones were also seized.Reporters Without Borders urged the Iraqi authorities to ensure respect for the rights of journalists in a letter to the prime minister on 6 June. “Any action by the security forces that prevents journalists from doing their job is an unacceptable violation of freedom of expression,” the letter said. “Press freedom is an essential component of the democratic process to which Iraq is committed. We will be watching closely to see whether the public’s right to information is respected.”Despite this appeal, the security forces prevented many journalists from covering the demonstrations that took place in Baghdad two days. Some were beaten or threatened on Tahrir Square and some had their equipment seized. News to go further News

The new rooms would also increase bed capacity and improve patient flow across the hospital,” Deputy Carey explained.In his appeal, Mr McNamara stated that it was inappropriate to seek planning permission for a building and car-parks of this scale without a landscaping plan that would help alleviate the negative effects on the residential amenity.He explained that 11 major projects were carried out in the hospital over the past eight years and this represented a massive intensification of use of a facility in the middle of a residential district. He added that a master plan should be submitted to enable the assessment of how the block fits in with proposed and past developments on the site.

Pay deals rise despite uncertaintyOn 6 May 2003 in Personnel Today UK pay deals held steady in the first quarter of 2003 at 2.9 per cent,despite uncertainty about the impact of the war in Iraq and inflation risingabove 3 per cent. According to research, the upturn in the level of settlements seen at thestart of the new year was sustained in March, with the headline measure ofbasic pay awards (the median) remaining unchanged for the third consecutivequarter. Figures from IRS (Industrial Relations Services) Pay Databank not onlyindicate that the upward hike in pay awards is more than a temporary blip, butalso provide a benchmark for spring pay bargaining. The research also reveals that public sector awards have stayed ahead of privatein the 12 months to March 2003. The median basic pay settlement in the public sector was 3.4 per centcompared with 2.5 per cent in the private sector. David Carr, Pay and Benefits Bulletin editor, said: “The overalleconomic picture is unclear, with consumer and business confidence having bothtaken serious knocks recently. “However, forecasts for UK economic growth look almost healthy comparedwith those for other countries, such as those in the eurozone. “Looking forward, the only constant is the likelihood of continueduncertainty.” www.irseclipse.co.uk Comments are closed.
