LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemOur experience The Tectoniques agency has extensive experience in building housing in eco-neighbourhoods, with a committed and ambitious environmental approach, using a specific construction protocol based on dry construction mainly using prefabricated wood components. The Rive de Gier project takes this basic approach to new heights. The entire programme, composed of individual grouped accommodation units, intermediate housing and small collective housing blocks, is entirely built using dry construction methods employing 2D macro-components along with 3D modules for the sanitary and technical facilities. This construction method developed by Ossabois is known as the “5D process”. Save this picture!A challenge in both urban and landscaping terms The project site is located at the heart of an existing urban network complete with the surrounding landscaping. The first challenge was to establish an open, positive connection with the six existing buildings and the neighbouring school, as well as the surrounding residential housing and the green spaces that characterise the neighbourhood. Save this picture!The project is built on the flank of the hillside, on a site that is well exposed and has clear views with no particular inconveniences. It offered the ideal conditions in which to build a truly exemplary project. The architecture works on a variety of scales to avoid creating an imposing mass, instead producing small blocks and volumes that are broken down and split up. Save this picture!The very light wood construction is ideal for adapting to the difficulties of building on this steeply sloping plot of land. The balconies, exterior hallways and garden levels all work to assert the domestic feel of the project. They form the different stages between the public space of the street and the gardens and the private housing. Save this picture!Dry construction using the 5D Process This construction method developed by Ossabois, mainly, but not systematically, uses wood as some structures are made of: -Metal: Balconies and walkways-Concrete: The lift shaft for the collective apartment block-Mixed metal-concrete: components for the flooring separating housing units-Wooden frameworks for all other structures: facades, roofing, load-bearing walls and internal flooring within a given housing unit. Save this picture!The project is made from two main families of prefabricated components: 2D macro-components for the “flat components”: the facades, the flooring, and all the structures that make up the envelope of the building, and 3D modules for the bathrooms. Save this picture!AxonometricThe former are complete and include the cladding for the facades, the frames, windows and shutters. All the interior components are prefabricated up to the vapour barrier. Lining boards are then installed on site to finish off the structures. The 3D modules arrive on site “ready for use”. The only work which needs to be done on site is to connect the utilities and fit the lining boards to the 3D blocks. Save this picture!As well as saving time, this process limits the risk of defects resulting from poor workmanship on site and also significantly reduces the disruption from operations on site. Save this picture!plansWood Amongst the wide range of materials that can be used in building construction, wood is by far the most versatile, the easiest to work and transform and, of course, the most environmentally sound (a renewable resource which fixes carbon, consumes little embodied energy and can be easily reused). Save this picture!The project required 370 m3 of wood in the form of solid wood (framework for the walls and facades, joist work and purlins), OSB panels to close off the wall panels and flooring, and a small number of glulam components to ensure the stability of the building on the fifth floor. It should be noted that the project does not use any wood on the facade. Only the framework made of lengthening jointed pine wood and the spruce shutters, both covered in an industrial glaze, constitute a controlled and limited use of wood on the external facade.  Save this picture!Sustainable supplies and prefabrication The wood and derivative products are all sourced within Europe, and mostly from France. For over 30 years OSSABOIS has developed 2D and 3D prefabrication methods. Its expertise in this area means it can optimise the construction method to fit the planned use of the building. The 2D principle is particularly well suited to creating a flexible, open architecture. The 100% digital design is used to guide the industrial manufacturing and assembly tool. No adjustments are required during on-site assembly. Highly accurate logistics allow for just-in-time delivery which limits the volume of stock and the handling processes. The 3D bathroom and technical room modules arrive fully finished and protected on the work site. This can reduce the overall timeframe for construction by several weeks and ensures a high, consistent level of quality which also limits the amount of stock required.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessThe European Prize for Urban Public Space Names 25 Finalists for 2016Architecture NewsMVRDV Designs a Kitchen with Complete TransparencyArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:42800 Rive-de-Gier, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

They propose us a new project to jump into: To turn a skeleton under construction into a house to sell, with the premise that it stands out within the local real estate market, offering a place to enjoy the island and its climate as a retreat. The house is inserted in a rustic land in Santa Maria, in the Pla de Mallorca, the flat area in the center of the island, surrounded by vineyards and protected by a pine forest that the client has been planting for years, with sun all day and panoramic views of the Tramuntana.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe layout of the plant refers to Jose Antonio Coderch; the house program is developed on several axes that are articulated along a series of walls arranged in a north-south direction.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe access is made through the pine forest from the ‘camí’ until we reach the house, that appears totally closed, recreating the local Arab influences. A curved ramp leads to the entrance through a wild garden parallel to one of the walls. Once on the porch, a large floor-to-ceiling pivoting door opens inviting us to enter.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe foyer, which stretches to both sides of the longitudinal courtyard – a forest of bamboo trapped between two long walls – gives us access to the bedrooms. The guest room occupies the first volume of the house and has its own patio. The rest of the rooms are located in the south wing, two twin bedrooms with a shared bathroom, open to the garden, and the main bedroom, which opens south to a large open patio with a tinted concrete bench.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe kitchen is to the North, independent but visually connected to the living room, and has its own patio open to the twin mountains of Alaró. And finally the living room, which is situated in the widest bay of the house, opens up to the panoramic views over the mountain and the garden. The asymmetric inclination of the roof allows it to open more to the south than to the north, protecting the large windows from the incidence of the sun, which in turn, when open, allow for cross ventilation to better withstand the high temperatures of summer. An exterior window is cut into the west wall and visually connects the living room with the pool, allowing water reflections to dance in the beams of the room. When its blind – in the same tone as the wall and with flanges in metallic tones – is closed it filters the light, and the room acquires a red tinge.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe pool is detached from the house so it gets its own space, and slides as another volume of the house that emerges from the ground, allowing to swim from the Tramuntana to the Puig de Ses Coves.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazA specific materiality is proposed to integrate the house and almost camouflage it with the local landscape. On the outside, the walls are plastered with a rough rust coloured mortar making the house blend in with the land.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazInside, the palette is reduced to tinted concrete of the same reddish color, white, copper and natural wood, giving the house a warm and natural atmosphere. The floor, locally manufactured by Huguet and custom designed for the project, goes in and out diluting the limit of the house, while a series of elements also made of red tinted concrete -washbasins, showers, fireplace and benches- equip the different spaces. This limited palette of materials reveals the simple geometry of the building and creates a visual and tactile continuity between the architecture and its surroundings. Monochrome and vibrant, the house changes hues during the day, reacting to the sun and land, revealing movement through shadows and changing material nuances.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazProject gallerySee allShow lessArizona Courtyard House / Optima DCHGlobalSelected ProjectsHet Gym / Kevin Veenhuizen ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharecenter_img Photographs:  Luis Díaz Díaz Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeIsla ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSpainPublished on March 01, 2021Cite: “Lover´s House / Isla Architects” [Lover’s House / Isla Architects] 01 Mar 2021.

Why Is the Manhattan Housing Market Slowing Down?

Many legacy contracts signed in new developments in the borough up to two years ago or more finalized their sales in Q42018 driving up the average price in Manhattan by 1.8 percent, even as the median price dropped 4.4 percent. “In healthier markets, these numbers would have moved correspondingly,” said Garrett Derderian, Director of Data and Reporting at Stribling.The borrow recorded a decline of 10 percent in total sales compared to the same period last year and was down 25 percent from the high recorded in Q42015, the report indicated. “Every quarter of 2018 saw a decrease in the number of sales over the same period one year ago, including the most recent quarter,” Derderian said. “The striking occurrence now is the number of sales hit a post-crash low. The last time we observed so few fourth-quarter sales was 2011.”Despite the decline in sales, the report revealed that sales volume in terms of dollars increased with total sales volume for Q42018 up 1.6 percent to $4.07 billion from $4.01 billion a year ago. Yet, according to Derderian, the total volume remained down from the nearly $5 billion recorded in 2015.Additionally, discounts in price listings continued to rise during the quarter in Manhattan. While the average discounts for properties in the borough were at 6.4 percent off the initial asking price in Q32018, they grew to 7.9 percent in Q4, though they weren’t evenly spread.Looking at the inventory in the area, the report found that there were 7,019 units on the market at the end of Q42018. Of these, condo units made up the largest share of the inventory with 49 percent. Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News. She is a graduate of the University of Pune, India, where she received her B.A. in Commerce with a concentration in Accounting and Marketing and an M.A. in Mass Communication.

Selective leaks by investigating officers or agencies deflect public opinion and amounts to conduct of a trial by media by leaking selective evidence. It is submitted that the use of electronic media by the investigating agency probably to influence public opinion during the pendency of an investigation subverts the fairness of the investigation. It is submitted that neither the investigating agency nor the media are the adjudicators nor do they pronounce upon guilt. It is submitted that selective leak of sensitive information to the media amounts to manipulating public opinion by tarnishing the reputations of individuals involved in the process of investigation.” Applicants have also sought directions for a Judicial Court-monitored inquiry to be conducted into the misconduct, if any, of the officials of investigating agencies, i.e., CBI, NCB or ED, or by the accused or the witnesses: and to take strict action against the concerned officers. Moreover, the applicants have prayed for directions to the Investigating Agencies to take necessary action against the broadcasters under the appropriate provisions of law and to file a status report before the High Court.Interim application filed through Advocates Rajesh Inamdar, Shashwat Anand and Pankaj KandhariNext Storylast_img read more

The concert will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 1 at the We Piddle Around Theater in downtown Brundidge. “You’ve not had this much fun since Santa Claus,” said Lawrence Bowden, BHS president said. “‘Three on a String’ is in great demand and we are excited to have them at the We Piddle Around Theater.”Bowden said tickets go in hurry and are the best Christmas deal around at $20. “You won’t find better entertainment anywhere than ‘Three on a String,’” he said. “For the same $20, you’ll be served homemade chili with all the trimmings and enjoy the fellowship of friends and neighbors in a unique theater setting.”For tickets, call 334-344-9427. “Three On A String” have performed for presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush. They have performed with nearly a dozen symphony orchestras. They have opened for such acts as the Statler Brothers, Hank Williams, Jr., the Oak Ridge Boys, and Brenda Lee. They have performed on Ralph Emory’s morning TV show in Nashville and were invited by Ray Stevens as guests on “Nashville Now.”  They have been taped doing live performances many times for TV audiences – one earning the prestigious Birmingham Obelisk Award (a local Oscar-type honor). They have been inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame receiving the distinguished Governor’s Achievement Award.center_img You Might Like Pike County residents say ‘thank you’ to veterans A member of Charlie’s Angels assists the family of deceased veteran, Easter Stewart, in placing a flag in his honor…. read more Sponsored Content The Chili Country Christmas at the We Piddle Around Theater in Brundidge has become a tradition for many in and around Pike County. ‘Three on a String’ coming to the We Piddle Around theater Around the WebIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Restoring the Love on Love Street

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Sponsored Content Restoring the Love on Love Street The Owens House was built with timbers from a Methodist church that had burned on or near the site. The use of the salvaged church timbers brought a sense of reverence to the century-old home.“What we have been told is that ‘Granny’ Ann Love had helped fund the church that burned,” Lisa said. “So that adds special historical importance to the Owens House.”Two church pews from the old church are a focal point of the “prayer nook” that lends historic character to the house.Three of the chandeliers in the Nonnenmanns’ house are thought to have been shipped from Turkey.  The chandeliers in the dining room and, what Lisa refers to as “the Pink Room,” are definitely original to the house. However, the chandelier in the foyer was brought from New Orleans.“Supposedly, that chandelier hung in a house of ill repute,” Chris said, laughing. But, no mater, it makes a lovely light at The Fleur de Lis Manor, which is the business name the Nonnenmanns have now given to the historic house.“My family is Cajun, so it’s The Fleur de Lis Manor, but out of respect for the family who built the house, we still call it the Owens House,” Lisa said.The mantels are original to the house and were beautifully constructed and add greatly to the elegance of the historic house.“The mantel in the dining rooms is a sister mantel,” Chris said. “A sister mantel is one that was cut from the same tree as another mantle. The sister mantle to ours is in a historic home in Eufaula. Both mantels were cut from the same Tiger Oak.”So far, the Nonnenmanns have not found any secret compartments in the historic home but Lisa, laughingly, said there is something very mysterious about the Owens House.“Over the years, I’m sure there have been those who were born and died in the house,” Lisa said. “And, I have had the experience of seeing the shadow of a small child on the stairs.“Once, when a group from North Alabama had lunch here with us, one of the guests told me she was a paranormal investigator. She said, ‘and they are glad you are here.’”Lisa asked exactly who was glad.“The paranormal investigator said the spirits because it was such a warm, nice and happy place to be,” she said. “And, I’m happy they are here because Mr. Owens helps me find anything that I have misplaced. And, I always say, ‘Thank you, Mr. Owens.’”The Nonnenmanns are glad they followed their dream to 311 Church Street in Troy.Whether the historic home is called The Owens House or The Fleur de Lis Manor, it is their home away from home.“We have had friends and family here and have even spent nights here,” Lisa said. “Chris and I enjoy the warmth of this wonderful house and look forward to opening it up to others who are looking for another option for a special place for a special event.”For more stories from the January/February edition of TroyLife, pick up a copy at various locations around the community or at The Messenger office.

We both loved it. So, we called the realtor and the owner was willing to sell.”And, the Nonnenmanns were willing to buy into their dream.“There was much work to be done but the house was actually in great shape,” Lisa said. “Having been a restaurant, it had to be up to code. It even had an accessibility ramp and my dad loves that.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits But, when she first started looking seriously at the Owens House, it was Miss Collene’s, a private dining restaurant.“I had the opportunity to have lunch at Miss Collene’s several times,” Lisa said. “The house was so beautiful and, I guess secretly, I wished for a house like that, maybe that house.”Lisa said her wish was not for a house like that as her home but as a venue for small social events, including showers and for wedding parties and family gatherings.

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Charleston Fire in Douglas County, Colorado, forced hundreds of families to flee their homes Monday as the fire quickly grew to 500 acres. Nearly four dozen wildfires are currently burning in the West all the way from California to Nebraska. Gusty winds and extremely dry conditions in the last few days have helped the spread of these wildfires from Nevada to Utah and into Colorado. On Tuesday, the windy conditions will move further east threatening areas from Colorado to New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma where Red Flag Warnings have been issued.Meanwhile in the East, flash flooding and severe storms are expected from the Midwest into the Northeast. There were also flood rescues Monday in Kentucky where some areas got more than 4 inches of rain in just a few hours, flooding roads and neighborhoods. In the Northeast, damaging winds of up to 70 mph hit the borough of Queens in New York City, bringing down trees, and golf ball-sized hail was reported in the Hudson Valley. On Tuesday, severe storms are expected in the Plains from the Dakotas into Nebraska where damaging winds will be the biggest threat. Besides the storms, flooding rainfall is possible in the mid-Mississippi River Valley around St. Louis down to Tennessee where locally some areas could see up to a half a foot of rain and flash flooding Tuesday.Elsewhere, a holiday week heat wave is developing for most of the Eastern U.S. On Tuesday, a Heat Advisory has been issued from Texas to Missouri for five states where temperatures could reach as high as 105 degrees with the heat index in some areas approaching 109. This scorcher then should move east into the Midwest, the Great Lakes and the East Coast. Temperatures and humidity will make it feel like its 90 to 100 degrees from Minneapolis to Chicago, Detroit and even New York City by the Fourth of July.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
