This two-storey building is a renewal project. The program of the first floor is set as the client’s studio and living space in the second floor. This client who treasures everything relating to this old house requested us to reserve the architectural symbols with the local memory and history in this old house. Hence, the design team repaired and re-created the architectural elements and components which are common to be seen in Taiwan. For example, the form of Chinese arch has represented as the symbol for the window. The existing terrazzo material, the steel handrail with flower patterns and the wood construction were well-reserved. Our design team attempted to present a modern style of contemporary living space, where has been installed in this conservative building.Save this picture!© Yu-Chen,TsaoThe site is located in the residential-commercial area of the city. In the future, the back side of this old building will turn to be the main access because of the urban renewal plan and road readjustment. How to transform the existing illegal constructions and equipment space to be an attractive entrance and facade is the essential concept in this project.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Yu-Chen,TsaoThe design followed the existing construction and dismantled some parts of walls to create the simple and geometry new-facade. For the mottled concrete walls, we used eco-paint. The outside wall was painted with white color that could reflect the sunlight. Meanwhile, the gray color painted on the balcony wall would enhance the shadow effect more vividly. As a result, the form would be showed more clearly with its high contrast.Save this picture!© Yu-Chen,TsaoIn addition, we dismantled some area of the floors, thus, a courtyard was created and the original crowded space was released for living and air circulation as well. The green land connected to courtyard is opened for the neighbors who are able to directly walk in; meanwhile they can enjoy the green and light without any fences. Furthermore, the green and daylight in this courtyard can be shared by the studio and living space without unnecessary interruption in-between these two spaces.Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Yu-Chen,TsaoIn terms of the purpose, some parts of the concrete steel bars were kept when the floors were dismantled. This idea can help us to get the grid shadow when the sunlight goes through the steel bars onto the courtyard. Besides, we planted a tree here, so that the image would be like the house embracing the tree and courtyard. People living here will experience the changes of seasons. Finally, the new element-nature has been created onto the elevations of this old building reborn with the architectural spirit from the perspective in our project.Save this picture!© Yu-Chen,TsaoProject gallerySee allShow lessCHICHI Office / Koyori + Atelier SaltSelected ProjectsSt. Joseph / KUDSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeJ.R ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentTainanTaiwan (ROC)Published on April 26, 2017Cite: ” The Site of Last Longer Project / J.R Architects” 26 Apr 2017.

Kanchanaburi House Phase II is the new annex to a riverside house we designed back in 2014, it provides elevated views of the riverside and leisure facilities for the owner and her guests. Red terracotta cladding keeps the appearance of the house in line with the first house while keeping the house cool. Save this picture!© Gregoire GlachantDuring summer, Kanchanaburi province is known for being one of the hottest places in Thailand, therefore, tackling energy consumption was our main focus. The house was designed to maximize comfort through passive cooling system. We make use of the site’s topography by elevating the house to allow for better air circulation. In addition to cross ventilation at the main level, the air shaft was designed to help further ventilate the ceiling by allowing the cooler air from underneath the house to move up and disperse the heat collected under the roof. The northern opening ensures thorough illumination without the direct sunlight penetration while the extended wall fins and retractable awning keep the house properly shaded.Save this picture!© Gregoire GlachantSitting prominently in the middle of the living room is the 1940’s antique Brunswick Centennial pool table; one of our client’s vintage collections that inspired the whole interior design language of the house. And in order to stay connected to the surrounding nature we kept the interior layout as open and light as possible. A large balcony with a set of large doors seamlessly connects the interior and exterior. When combined with a set of loose furniture, the party house will get the functional flexibility it needs.Save this picture!© Gregoire GlachantProject gallerySee allShow lessKunshan Grand Theater / China Architecture Design Group Land-based Rationalism D.R.CSelected ProjectsSuwŏlok / STARSISSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Thailand Area:  217 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAnghin ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThailandPublished on July 20, 2018Cite: “Kanchanaburi House / Anghin Architecture” 19 Jul 2018.

Massive strikes in Tunisia, Morocco

first_imgStriking public workers in Tunis jam the streets during 24-hour strike.Around 700,000 Tunisian workers — public employees and workers in state-owned companies — carried out a one-day general strike on Jan. 17.  They want a raise that keeps up with inflation and an end to the meddling of the International Monetary Fund. In Morocco, 150,000 municipal employees joined civil servants working for the district and other local government institutions in observing a 24-hour strike to protest what they called “catastrophic” working conditions. Negotiations between the local governments and the unions representing the workers had broken down.In Tunisia, the strike was called by the Tunisian General Labor Union (UGTT), the largest and most powerful trade union confederation in the country.  In Morocco, the strike was called by the Moroccan Workers’ Union (UMT), the Democratic Confederation of Labor, the Democratic Federation of Labor and the General Union of Moroccan Workers.Abdennacer Jamal el-Khabbouli, deputy secretary-general of the Democratic Organization of Local Municipalities, said dialogue with the government had been strained since 2007.“Many agreements reached with the government in 2007 have not been implemented,” he said.UMT said in a statement that the strike was a “protest against the targeting of trade union freedoms, the right to organize trade unions, the delay in social dialogue and the infringement on workers’ rights.” (Al Jazeera, Jan. 18)  All the unions involved in the strike asserted that workers need a substantial raise, even though inflation is only 1.5 percent, according to the International Monetary Fund.The union alliance in Morocco underlined its demands: “Despite the appeals launched by the unions, the minister of the interior has remained resistant to the demands of the working class.” In Tunisia, the UGTT held a number of militant rallies, even in remote cities on the edge of the Sahara. Rail, bus and air traffic stopped while schools, ports, hospitals, government offices and state media were affected. The IMF, which advanced Tunisia a $2.8 billion loan in December 2016, has been putting pressure on the Tunisian government to tighten spending on public service workers, which accounts for 15.5 percent of government outlays. According to the IMF, this is one of the highest levels in the world.Sami Tahri, deputy secretary-general of the UGTT, said the government is under the dictates of the IMF and has chosen the difficult solution of confrontation with public servants.  He proposed that the UGTT should directly negotiate with the IMF.

Millennials flock to short-term rentals during pandemic

first_imgShare via Shortlink Landing CEO Bill Smith and Zeus Living CEO Kulveer Taggar (Photos via LinkedIn; Zeus Living; iStock)With many millennials choosing to lease apartments on a short-term basis, some property startups are looking to fill a growing demand for furnished housing.One is Landing, which leases furnished apartments throughout the country, the Wall Street Journal reports. The company originally planned to operate in about 30 cities last year, but instead grew to 75 thanks to the pandemic, according to Landing CEO Bill Smith.With Landing, renters buy an annual membership that gives them the ability to rent furnished apartments in any of its cities. Smith said he is seeing an increasing number of customers leave cities like New York for places such as Denver and St. Petersburg.The company recently secured $45 million in funding from a group of investors led by Foundry Group and included Greycroft and Maveron. It also scored $55 million in debt.San Francisco-based Sonder https://therealdeal.com/tag/sonder/, which rents out furnished apartments, has seen an uptick of extended stays, according to its CEO Francis Davidson. Stays of longer than 14 days make up about 60 percent of its business, an increase from less than 25 percent pre-pandemic.Meanwhile, Zeus Living — a provider of corporate housing — said it pivoted to renting apartments to individuals after seeing a drop in company travel. Remote workers now make up about 25 percent of the company’s business, according to its CEO, Kulveer Taggar.[WSJ] — Keith Larsen Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Tagsshort term rentalSonderlast_img read more

Oceanographic and climatic consequences of the tectonic evolution of the southern scotia sea basins, Antarctica

first_imgThe Scotia Sea is a complex geological area located in the Southern Ocean which evolution is closely linked to the opening of the Drake Passage. Structural highs of continental nature derived from the former continental bridge between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula surround the abyssal plains of the Scotia Sea, restricting small isolated sedimentary basins along its southern margin. Morpho-structural and seismo-stratigraphic analyses of multichannel seismic reflection profiles, and additional geophysical data available in the region, have been conducted, decoding regional and global implications of the basins’ evolution. The main aim of this work is to describe the stratigraphic evolution of the southern Scotia Sea basins, from their opening in the back-arc tectonic context of the Scotia Sea, to the last oceanographic changes which have carried on global climatic implications. The evolution of the south Scotia Sea occurred through two major tectonic stages registered in the sedimentary record of the region: 1) the end of the subduction in the northwest part of the Weddell Sea during the early Miocene, which shortened the back-arc subduction trench generating a major change in the regional tectonic field that determined the evolution of the southern basins towards two different types of passive margins: magma-poor and magma-rich; and 2) the full development of the southern Scotia Sea basins during the middle Miocene, that led to the opening of deep oceanic gateways along the South Scotia Ridge. Interplay among tectonics, oceanography and climate is proposed to control the regional sedimentary stacking pattern, with coeval changes globally identified.last_img read more
