Context: The house is located in the foothills of the western mountain range at 1025 m.s.n.m, in the municipality of Jamundí approximately 10km south of Santiago de Cali. The place of implantation is on the foot of mountain of a tropical dry forest that adjoins on the western side of the house with the incidence of katabatic winds coming from the high of the hills.Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoThe Promenade and the Program: Programmatically housing spaces are organized through a promenade route that connects the different areas, thus achieving a sequence of visuals directed and escaped into the landscape and into the interior of the living place. This strategy achieves different shades of light and penumbra. The house is made up of 4 volumes intersected by circulation that differentiates the uses from those of a more social order to those of a more private nature.Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoThe Tectonic: Understanding that stereotomic architecture is one in which the force of gravity is transmitted in a continuous manner and where the constructive continuity is complete, we designed an architecture with a solid and stone enclosure. It is a proposal that seeks light and where its walls were perforated so that light and breezes enter it.The Light: It has been projected as an element through which each of the spaces will be experienced. Driven by the design we managed to identify the enclosures and give them a specific character. In this way the light allows us to appreciate the shapes and hierarchize the spaces.Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoThe materials: the facade partitions were designed in common brick masonry using all the pieces during the construction phase and in this way could be built with materials from the region and thus incorporate unskilled labor. In turn, the haptic perception of brick suggests greater permanence in time and habitability from the tactile and spatial.Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoThe Structure: The release of some spaces and the fluidity of the implementation required a lighter and more flexible construction system with concrete porticoed structures and by means of the standardization and typification of some elements the execution times were reduced, guaranteeing the sustainability economic of the house.Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoThe House: the house was designed under three main aspects: 1. Formal aspects: housing from its initial stage incorporated formal elements typical of the typology of the context, reaffirming their identity and belonging to the place. 2. Physical aspects: the housing from its conception contemplated an adequate physical-environmental conditioning with greater height of mezzanines and differences of levels with a materiality that guaranteed durability, comfort and quality. 3. Spatial aspects: housing spaces are defined by dimensional, physical-environmental conditions, privacy, formal and degree of versatility, responding in an appropriate manner to the needs required by the user of the home.Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario CamargoProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture & Design Film Festival Returns to Downtown Los AngelesArchitecture News18 Spectacular Photographs Recognized at the AIA Los Angeles Photography AwardsArchitecture News Share CopyHouses•Jamundí, Colombia ArchDaily “COPY” Projects 2017 Area: 275 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/911926/miravalle-house-colectivo-720 Clipboard Architects: Colectivo 720 Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lead Architect: Save this picture!Cortesía de Luis Tombe, Camilo Giraldo, Mario Camargo+ 26Curated by Clara Ott Share Miravalle House / Colectivo 720 Year: Manufacturers: Sika, Acesco, Argos, Corona Colombia, Decorceramicas ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/911926/miravalle-house-colectivo-720 Clipboard CopyAbout this officeColectivo 720OfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJamundíOn InstagramColombiaPublished on February 21, 2019Cite: “Miravalle House / Colectivo 720” [Casa Miravalle / Colectivo 720] 21 Feb 2019.

The project strategy consisted on breaking down the total volume of the house, in a way that none of the façades would express the total height of the building, to avoid showing a robust object. The proportions of a two-story building inside a short plot could cause the perception of a bulky and heavy volume. We could achieve this fragmentation through the distribution of the mass, alternating the filled spaces (covered) and void spaces (semi-covered). This avoids a compact look from the outside and instead creates an effect of permeability.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSince we knew that the ground floor would host little covered surface, we decided to lay it in such a way that it became visually open and free, with a predominant volume above it (the upper floor), which rises over the plot as a clean element standing on four concrete feet. Under the shadow of this floating prism is where all social activities of the house take place. The visual strategy consists on hiding the impact of the ground floor from the outside, that means the social area, entrance and laundry room. To camouflage these areas, we decided to use dark grey on all the ground floor partitions, except for the four concrete feet that hold the upper volume. Furthermore, the solid areas are visually hidden from the front by pulling back the entrance volume and the laundry room, positioning them behind a free semi-covered space for the car entrance. Then, a deep courtyard enlarges the distance between the social area and the street, turning it almost imperceptible.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSince there was not much green area in relation to the built surface that was needed for the house, and our intention was to generate an atmosphere inside the house that enhanced the contact with nature, we positioned the social area in direct relation with the garden and decided to place a large courtyard in the center, which structures the floor plan and allows the alternation between open and closed spaces. In this way, the exterior becomes present in every space in a controlled manner, still encouraging the feeling of shelter.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!1st floor planSave this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe top floor is approached through a double-height space that faces the courtyard through a full-height glazing. The two secondary bedrooms face towards the front of the house, while the corridor that connects them incorporates an integrated desk, which faces both the internal courtyard and the backyard. The main bedroom is positioned to the right of the courtyard and concludes in a large terrace that fits into the entire width of the plot. The pergola acts both as a shelter from the sunlight and it visually completes the floating volume, to make it look as a compact element.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe courtyard brings light and wideness to all the spaces, and the vegetation will give privacy and contribute to climate regulation once it is fully developed.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenProject gallerySee allShow lessRenovation of Federal Reserve Board Headquarters Portends a Battle Over Civic Archit…Architecture NewsCasa de las Estrellas Waldorf School / Salagnac ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Projects Area: 2540 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Year: ArchDaily Save this picture!© Daniela Mac Adden+ 33Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941572/castanos-house-ekaterina-kunzel-plus-maria-belen-garcia-bottazzini Clipboard “COPY” Argentina Architects: Ekaterina Kunzel, María Belén García Bottazzini Area Area of this architecture project Houses Castaños House / Ekaterina Kunzel + María Belén García BottazziniSave this projectSaveCastaños House / Ekaterina Kunzel + María Belén García Bottazzini 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941572/castanos-house-ekaterina-kunzel-plus-maria-belen-garcia-bottazzini Clipboard “COPY” Castaños House / Ekaterina Kunzel + María Belén García Bottazzini Photographs: Daniela Mac Adden Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Benavidez, Argentina CopyAbout this officeEkaterina KunzelOfficeFollowMaría Belén García BottazziniOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBenavidezOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on June 15, 2020Cite: “Castaños House / Ekaterina Kunzel + María Belén García Bottazzini” [Casa Castaños / Ekaterina Kunzel + María Belén García Bottazzini] 15 Jun 2020.

By Zac Fraser and Misha LitvakPortland, OregonScores of courageous protesters assembled outside the offices of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in southwestern Portland on Oct. 11. They then went into motion to stop a bus taking a group of immigrants to a detention facility in Tacoma, Wash., for deportation.Five protesters chained themselves together and blocked the doors of the building. Cops arrived on the scene around 5:30 p.m. and began making arrests after ordering the protesters to disperse. When the pigs got to the protesters who had chained themselves together, they placed hoods and earmuffs over the heads of the protesters. The cops claimed that this was to “protect” the protesters from power tools being used to sever their bonds. But witnesses say that they did not see or hear any power tools and that the pigs used box cutters to cut the protesters apart.The protesters’ tactic succeeded in significantly delaying ICE’s ghoulish work. As for the Abu-Ghraib-like hooding of protesters, it’s irrelevant whether the pigs were just trying to keep from getting sued, or it was an intimidation tactic on their part. While the protesters’ bonds were being ripped apart outside the ICE offices, families and lives were being torn apart inside the building.All five of the protesters have been released. In a statement from the protesters, they correctly state that their “gentle” treatment at the hands of the authorities stands in stark contrast to the torturous conditions endured by those people facing deportation.The Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Wash., where the bus was heading, is privately owned by the GEO company and is the fourth largest immigrant prison in the U.S. Opened in 2004, the center faced allegations of human rights abuse in 2008 when an investigation published through Seattle University’s School of Law confirmed that the facility “violate(d) international human rights law.” Since then, the detention center’s capacity has more than tripled from an initial 1,575 detainees.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Previous articleQCCP-Syngenta Collaboration Produces Cellulosic EthanolNext articlePurdue Top Farmer Strategies Include Getting Back to Basics Andy Eubank SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Tate and Lyle Announces $90 Million Lafayette Investment SHARE Governor Mike Pence joined executives from Tate & Lyle (LSE: TATE), a global supplier of ingredients and solutions to the food and beverage industry, in London today to announce the company’s plans to invest more than $90 million in its Lafayette, Indiana operations over the next three years. “All over the world, business leaders are recognizing that Indiana has all the ingredients they need to take their businesses to the next level,” said Pence. “From a central location in the heartland of America to tax policies that encourage growth, Indiana is affordable, innovative and productive. I was privileged to personally thank leaders at Tate & Lyle in London today for recognizing that Indiana offers global companies the perfect recipe for success.” The substantial investment includes plans for a three-phased expansion of Tate & Lyle’s Lafayette Sagamore facility to increase its modified food starch production capacity, as well as a number of improvements to increase efficiencies at its Lafayette South facility. The planned expansion and upgrades are expected to be complete in 2017. In addition to the substantial investment in infrastructure, Tate & Lyle, which currently employs more than 500 Indiana associates, plans to add around 10 positions to the local workforce. “Our investments in Lafayette position us for future flexibility and growth within our markets and allow us to provide the solutions our customers need to meet consumer demands while making continued improvements in our environmental performance,” said Olivier Rigaud, president of specialty food ingredients at Tate & Lyle. “We’d like to thank the state of Indiana and the city of Lafayette for their ongoing support of these projects and look forward to our continued relationship with them.” Founded in the United Kingdom in the mid-19th century and headquartered in London, Tate & Lyle produces a wide range of sweeteners, starches, stabilizer systems and industrial ingredients, many of which are made from corn, for customers around the world. The company’s global network of more than 30 production and research facilities includes two manufacturing facilities in Lafayette, along with grain elevators in Francesville and Fowler, Indiana. For its fiscal year ending in March 2014, Tate & Lyle’s sales totaled $5.32 billion. “Tate & Lyle continues to be one of Lafayette’s leading industries,” said Lafayette Mayor Tony Roskwarski. “This latest investment and pledged job creation is one of many investments that the company has made here in their local plants. It is a testament that Lafayette is good place to do business. We appreciate their confidence and support of the Lafayette plant and our community.” The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered TL HUS, Inc. up to $375,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s investment plans. The city of Lafayette approved additional tax abatement at the request of the Greater Lafayette Commerce. This week, Pence is leading an economic development and jobs mission to the United Kingdom, sharing why Indiana is a state that works for companies to grow and thrive.
