Sensible site evaluation and planning suggested the Earll Residence addition start as a continuation from the existing north gable form of this 1950’s residence, with the result becoming the abstraction of the mid-century ranch home typically equipped with a lean-to style patio. The addition works as a bookend to the existing structure while simultaneously providing a relief of natural light and ventilation between the old and new, while the maintenance-free patinad steel finish strengthens the form and demonstrates a regional approach in construction techniques. Save this picture!© Matt WinquistInternal programs and their exterior openings are thoughtfully placed to provide optimal views and experiences of private gardens, patios, and play yards around the property. Operable glazing units at both ends of the internal east-west breezeway hall are slightly recessed while the west elevation is fully shaded by a patio roof and the largest opening takes advantage of the north light. Additional natural lighting washes a wall of reclaimed barn siding throughout the breezeway hall via a continuous slot skylight and provides dramatic effects from dawn to dusk in addition to supplying an abundance of day lighting throughout the existing residence. Save this picture!© StudioROEDERSlated for demolition, a dilapidated 1880’s Midwest barn located adjacent to the owner’s childhood home, was acquired and repurposed to become the focal point of the projects interior experience. A process of baking soda blasting followed by light hand scrubbing was performed to clean and neutralize any organic matter within the lumber, thus ensuring a sustainable method for providing a healthy component to the project. A central utility room volume continuously clad in the reclaimed barn siding becomes an anchor for each room in the addition. Circulation throughout the interior, including the exterior patio, is in constant connection with the warmth and texture of the material, evoking childhood memories as well as creating new ones for the family. Save this picture!© Matt WinquistThe selection of additional materials and methods throughout the project aimed to follow the LEED guidelines ranging from debris removal to finishes. Low and Zero VOC emitting finishes where chosen for all paints, cabinetry, and exposed concrete flooring throughout the addition and the remodel of the existing. Dual flush toilets, a programmable hot water recirculation system, bedroom ceiling fans, and fully dimmable low voltage lighting assist in conserving water and energy use throughout the year. Dual systems of sprayed polyurethane foam and batt insulations were applied to resist exterior heat gain and air infiltration while providing optimal thermal and sound properties. Concrete masonry pavers were salvaged from the property and reused under a new patio roof equipped with a custom roof scupper enabling the celebration of water throughout the Sonoran monsoons.Save this picture!© StudioROEDERProject gallerySee allShow less3x3x3 Taiwan Tower Competition / Broadway Malyan ArchitectsArticlesAtlantic City Holocaust Memorial / Amos Goldreich Architecture + Nekton StudioArticles Share “COPY” 2010 ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/90260/earll-residence-studioroeder Clipboardlast_img read more

The building is located in Calçada do Sacramento, in Chiado, in the heart of the city. It is a building of Pombaline origin which was highly degraded and with its structural system already much altered. It is composed by 4 floors above the ground plus 1 attic floor. On the ground-floor, operated the old “Panificação do Chiado”, whose elevation is classified.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe main goal was to keep the commercial use of the ground-floor and design different typologies for the upper floors, namely one 3 bedroom apartment for the 1st floor, one 1 bedroom and one 2 bedroom apartments for the 2nd floor and two 3 bedroom duplexes on the 3rd floor together with the utilization of the attic. To improve the comfort a lift was placed in the stairwell. The original look of it was kept despite the introduction of the new body with iron structure painted in black but totally transparent. The entrance hall was reorganized in order to present a clear and clean space, concealing the entire technical and garbage areas.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGOn the rear elevation verandas and French windows were introduced in order to optimize the enjoyment of the views and of the natural light. Two large dormers were introduced on the roof at the back and five smaller at the front with its respective terraces with exceptional views over the city, namely the Baixa Pombalina and the Castelo S. Jorge. The whole attic, once a gloomy and concealed space was pretty much improved by adding the new dormers on both façades, which allowed the abundant entrance of natural light and better views.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Section CSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe apartment of the 1st floor with access to the patio benefited from an outside space of large dimensions, overlooking the city. The apartments in general have very generous ceiling heights, which associated to the restoration of the original ceilings and crown moldings in decorated stuccoes revived the nobility of the building. Indirect lighting was placed in crown moldings exalting the decorative elements. By designing doors, bookshelves and wardrobes up to the ceiling the wide scale of the spaces was highlighted.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGA dialogue between the elements of contemporary architecture (in particular the open kitchens and hidden bathrooms) and the classic and traditional elements of the building was promoted. In the duplexes the private areas were placed on the lower level and the social ones on the upper level, promoting the livingness of the terraces and the relation of the living areas with the best views.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe care with the intervention also went through the structural reinforcement approach which always tried to use and reinforce the existing elements instead of the full replacement of the original constructive system.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessFuturistic Illustrations Show What Architecture and Construction Will Look Like in 2030ArticlesGreville Road Studio / Syte ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Lisbon, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

The authorities have also charged them with violating “national security.” “The closure of the three radio stations and the warning to some 3,000 other local stations are utterly reprehensible,” the press freedom organisation said. “The government does not do itself any favours with this kind of authoritarian intervention, which violates free speech. The three stations must be allowed to resume broadcasting at once.”This was the first time Thaksin has given an interview to Thai radio stations since his ouster in a military coup on 19 September 2006. He spoke with Confidante from London, where he is living in exile. In the interview, which was also broadcast by Saturday Voice Against Dictatorship and Taxi Driver Community Radio, Thaksin urged his voters to hold on, and said it would not be in the country’s interest for the election to be postponed.Shortly after the interview was broadcast, Confidante received a visit by a delegation from the military government, which confiscated the recording of the interview and closed the station down. Legal proceedings were initiated today against Confidante and Taxi Driver Community Radio while the server of Saturday Voice Against Dictatorship, which is only available on the Internet, was blocked.

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. center_img Nevada has been a hotbed of controversy on the issue of super-priority liens since the State Supreme Court ruled in September 2014 that homeowners’ associations (HOAs) had the authority to non-judicially foreclose on a property that is delinquent on its HOA dues.Servicers have fought to protect their properties from super-priority liens because those liens allow HOAs to extinguish the servicers’ mortgage and sell homes for huge discounts, sometimes for pennies on the dollar. The FHFA has been close to the issue, having repeatedly issued warnings to HOAs that super-priority liens would allow them to foreclose on mortgage loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Recently, Judge Elizabeth Gonzales in the Nevada Eighth Judicial District gave servicers a victory in that battle, nullifying an HOA foreclosure sale that occurred in 2014 on a mortgage held by Bank of America. The bank presented evidence in the case of Nevada New Builds, LLC v. Bank of America that it paid the delinquent HOA dues which amounted to $1,305 (nine months worth of delinquent dues)—and that the HOA accepted the payment without communicating to the bank whether or not the payment was sufficient enough to protect the bank’s lien on the property and remove the super-priority lien.The HOA foreclosed on the property, claiming the amount was not enough, but Gonales ruled that the HOA had not sufficiently proven that additional charges beyond nine months of HOA dues were not enough to give the HOA’s lien priority over Bank of America’s mortgage.The judge also ruled that the HOA engaged in “unfair” behavior by refusing to provide the bank with sufficient instruction as how much should be paid.Attorney G. Benjamin Milam of Bradley Arant Bould Cummings said that the ruling by Gonzales will buoy lenders who try to overturn HOA foreclosures in cases where the HOA did not comply with the servicer’s good faith effort to protect its mortgage.Last year, an amendment passed in the Nevada State Senate that amended the rules regarding super-priority liens. HOAs are now required to give servicers sufficient notice that if they pay the delinquent HOA dues, the servicers’ lien will be preserved.
