Bazán house is a medium scale, single family dwelling inserted into a small lot in a typical neighborhood of the central district of La Plata.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaThe commission was to design a project in the framework of a site between party walls, 10m wide by 16m deep. The preliminary ideas marked emphasis on the urban design of the location from the preexisting conditions of the place, as well as those of a block with small lots with generally low-rise residential buildings, but high impact characteristics with respect to atmosphere and neighborhood identity. As a corollary to this, a courtyard at the center of the block provides exceptional trees in their size and variety.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaFrom this, we develop ideas for the project. The architecture also arises in the need to “adjust” the size of a small house, building from here the notion of compactness, a compact and porous space that can fit into the dimensional requirements but in turn can be related in many ways outwards as well as inwards.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaA dwelling that takes the edge of the municipal line marking and emphasizing the continuity of the urban edge, which sets the height from a preexisting, older home at the corner, creating a kind of dialogue-joint between the new and the old, between today and yesterday. An dwelling as urban ensemble in the definition of the city.Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanA home that is thought through space, where the section defines its shape limits. The image of the house is the result of its section. Two overlapping boxes slightly offset oppositely to the party walls set the desired porosity edges between foreground and background. These points in turn have a complementary use, as garage on the ground floor and terrace upstairs, temporarily redefining the relationship with the party walls through continuous areas between interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaThree spatial bands define and arrange the house, parallel to the longitudinal axis of the site, setting its constructiveness, its dimensional structure and spatial structure. At the access, the scale tightens to 2.60 m and is related to a garden. From here, there is a double height in the central band of the house, creating a single space between living, dining, kitchen and upstairs a study, open staircase to this area which serves as a unifying balcony. This spatial band, central to the house, defines the freer recreational and social areas of the dwelling, the two remaining bands to the sides complete the set with the most private areas of bathrooms, bedrooms and services.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaThe dwelling has been designed as an integral space where the party walls are the limits. Both facades, toward the sidewalk on one side and to the back yard on the other, propose a filter to the relationship between interior and exterior space, an area that allows direct connection to the outside but also needs privacy, light control, security, etc.. This defines in the house a transitional space between inner world and outer world. The material definition is through the consecutive arrangement of vertical slats of precast concrete 5cm x 15cm arranged randomly.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaThe house has been built with local materials and techniques, using local workforce, and essentially the materiality of the project is directly related to the construction in this area. The structure is reinforced concrete, the walls are made of hollow brick wall and plaster. The framing is made of aluminum with DVH technology to improve thermal conditioning, the floors are tiled with rectangular ceramic pieces 0.20m x 0.40m that cover the entire house including interior and exterior areas except bedrooms and bathrooms. Generally, the skin of the house has been treated with a plaster finish on both walls and ceilings, and painted entirely white defining a continuous space.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaAs a general approach on this experience … The contemporary home in urban areas in this part of the world should be able to respond to new demands with strong pre-existing scenarios. This somehow defines the new line of the city approaching the idea of ​​coexistence. Furthermore the design should also be possible to materialize. Making a commitment to make a buildable architecture, about the architect’s ideas but also close to the real needs of the people who inhabit these spaces. Ultimately be sensitive and critical interpreters of reality to propose a greater quantity and quality of architectural situations that transform the ways of living of people with the fewest resources.Project gallerySee allShow lessCasa M / Estudio AireSelected ProjectsMaison A3 / Vincent CosteSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Projects Bazan House / SMF Arquitectos Argentina CopyHouses•Buenos Aires, Argentina Bazan House / SMF ArquitectosSave this projectSaveBazan House / SMF Arquitectos 2014 Architects: SMF Arquitectos Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” Save this picture!© Albano Garcia+ 46 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSMF ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBuenos AiresArgentinaPublished on July 18, 2014Cite: “Bazan House / SMF Arquitectos” [Casa Bazan / SMF Arquitectos] 18 Jul 2014.

Bookies rejoice as Apples Shakira fails to land monster plunge

first_img Related Articles Better Collective Spotlight: How is driving engagement through YouTube July 30, 2020 Share StumbleUpon Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020 Submit Some of the huge losses were recouped on the final day at Cheltenham, after defeat for Apples Shakira kick-started a “much-needed winning day” for the bookmakers.Starting out on day four, the bookmakers were estimated to be £100 million down after a succession of short price favourites, many of them Irish, romped to victory at the Festival.Stephen Harris, racing guru at bettingexpert, said: “Gold Cup day began with the bookmaking industry on the wrong side of a £100 million beating, and on-course layers running around the local Gloucestershire cash points to whip up a float for the final battle.“The card looked very competitive and there was a short-priced favourite to get stuck into in the opening Triumph Hurdle in Nicky Henderson’s unbeaten filly Apples Shakira.“She was a 3/1 chance a week ago, 2/1 last night, 6/4 by noon and hammered down to 6/5 by the off (the biggest public gamble of the entire NH season so far).”However, Apples Shakira’s struggle to a fourth-place finish gave the layers a real chance of getting out of the week, with Gordon Elliot’s Farclas (8/1) winning to the “wholesale relief of the ring”.Following this, the Dan Skelton-trained Mohaayed (33/1) provided a further tonic in the County Hurdle, a rare highlight for English trainers, as the recovery mission gathered pace.Defeat for the highly fancied Santini was the next feather in the bookmakers’ cap, as Kilbricken Storm (33/1) started a golden hour for the Colin Tizzard stable.“Santini was a well backed 11/4f for the Albert Bartlett (from 9/2 in the morning), but he was never going well and could only plug on late behind another huge price winner in Kilbricken Storm,” said Harris. “The layers could smell blood now after three cracking results.”The absence of a clear market favourite eased the pressure on the bookmakers going into the Gold Cup, the week’s blue-ribbon event, as Nicky Henderson looked to become the first trainer to win the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup at one Cheltenham Festival meeting.Harris said: “The Nicky Henderson-trained Might Bite and Native River were the two to attract the strongest cash, but there was a wide spread of public money in a very competitive looking field.”As it happened, Native River made all the running to land the £625,000 first prize, completing a glorious Friday double for Tizzard and only a small loser for most of the books.Harris concluded: “It was a much-needed winning day for the industry, particularly on-course who have huge expenses to bet here and rely on the four-days for their year-round viability.” Bettingexpert crowns TheTrollmanSha World Tipster Champion  July 2, 2020 Sharelast_img read more

Guyana Amazon Warriors wrap’ up home leg with tour of Essequibo Coast

first_imgBy Ashraf DabiThe Guyana Amazon Warriors on Saturday brought the curtain down on their home visit with a well-earned tour to the Cinderella County – Essequibo Coast.Following the recent conclusion to what was perhaps the most intense four matches in this year’s Hero Caribbean Premiere League (CPL) tournament hosted at the Providence National Stadium, the team’s major sponsor Guyana Telephone Telegraph (GTT), in bidding farewell to the players, facilitated an interactive session at the New Opportunity Corps in Onderneeming, Essequibo Coast, after which they were taken across the county on a series of sight visits, as well as meet and greets with scores of fans.Guyana Amazon Warriors, all-rounder, Steven Jacobs mentors some of the students at the NOC when the team visited the Essequibo Coast on SaturdayThe day kicked off with the Warriors being treated to an ideal Guyanese adventure as they were whisked away from the comforts of the Georgetown Marriott Hotel, at which they were stationed, and made their way across both the Demerara and Essequibo rivers.Despite their battle with inclement weather, the team of local and international cricket stars arrived in Supenaam, Region Two, in high spirits and full of anticipation of what promised to be a memorable day ahead.First off on the agenda, the Guyana Amazon Warriors met with and mentored the underage offenders currently detained at the New Opportunity Corps (NOC).As the Warriors disembarked the bus in Onderneeming, the excess of 70 boys and girls housed at the juvenile detention institution cheered and rushed to meet with the stars of their home team, chanting praises and congratulating the team on their recent victories.Introducing the home squad to the detained youths was GTT Public Relations Officer (PRO), Allison Park, who expressed delight in the materialisation of this significant interactive session.In doing so, Parker outlined what prompted her company to organise such a visit, noting that it is necessary for businesses and other organisations to direct attention to those residing outside the capital city as well.Moreover, while acknowledging the unfortunate circumstances which led to the underage offenders being detained at NOC, the PRO reassured the youngsters that all is not loss, and thereby encouraged them to only look forward.Sharing a similar view was the newly inducted captain of the Guyana Amazon Warrior, all-rounder Rayad Emrit, as he took to the forefront to address the youngsters. In recapping their 2017 CPL experience in Guyana, the Trinidadian pinpointed their time spent with various groups of Guyanese youth as part of their highlights.As such, Emrit took the opportunity to extend best wishes to the detainees while urging the young minds to use their time spent in the institution as a positive investment towards a successful future.Remaining on that note, homeboy Steven Jacobs while speaking at the NOC, charged the young offenders to erase their past misfortunes, as he posited that these very detainees are capable of following in his team’s footsteps at representing Guyana as sportsmen or even at other forums. As such, he challenged both boys and girls to work towards such ambitious goals. In addition to the words of advice, the youth population housed at the institution also cashed in on a number of cricket gear and equipment, such as bats and balls. Continuing their journey, the Amazon Warriors travelled further up the Essequibo Coast to the community of Affiance. The players spent the time meeting and interacting with the local supporters, during which the Essequibians took the best of the photo opportunity and scored the autographs of their favourites among the squad.The Warriors made a spontaneous stop to the Imran Bacchus Cricket Ground within the same community, at which they were greeted by a group of cricket enthusiasts deep in the game.The team subsequently moved on to the Amazon Warriors country home where they spent the remainder of the afternoon indulging in recreational adventures.The Guyana Amazon Warriors is set to take their leave today from which they will progress to Barbados in preparation for the remaining matches, crucial to their qualification for the playoffs.This is after the local team took on four games at home, striking down the Barbados Tridents and the St Lucia Stars for much needed wins, while also recording two significant loses.Nevertheless, the Warriors is set to face off against the Tridents once more on Tuesday as they play to secure their spot in the competition, with high hopes of advancing to the finals.last_img read more
