The lot situated in the coastal town of Cariló presented a depression in its centre and some pine trees on the rear façade. Two of the main requirements were: ensuring the users’ privacy –as the house is set on a busy street- and no level changes. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe dwelling stands as an autonomous artefact in a beach town with no clear architectural identity and which strictly respects setbacks, vegetation and natural topography. The house creates its own world as it closes in itself: a one-level-rectangular prism with three subtractions in the shape of patios that add ventilated perimeter and create transitional spaces between the interior and exterior. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThese spaces can be closed at the outer edge with roll down shutters, creating two different perimeters; thus, securing the users’ privacy and ensuring the property’s security when the owners are not at the vacation home.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaSunlight. A major challenge was to correctly orient this compact house since the brief included a closed garage on the street access. This was solved by placing the garage close to the street and a strip which nestles the bedrooms to the north.The living-dining room gets light from the same point thanks to the lifting offthe slab. The subtractions on the slab also illuminate those spaces which are further from the house perimeter. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaIn order to free the back of the lot from other constructions, the house was set at the minimum setback allowed from property line. This guarantees no shadows stemming from the own structure and turns the house into a ‘plug’ to the views from the street, creating a big private patio at the inner building level and free from construction to the rear façade. The concrete awnings on the front windows work as seasonal light regulators depending on the solar height and also protect the windows from the dirt caused from the dust of the street and rainwater.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Diego MedinaMateriality.The formal austerity of the house matches the austerity of the exposed concrete –with core insulation- and the glass. The concrete was also selected for its low maintenance and for its expressive and technological/building attributes.  The iron and galvanized sheet in the exterior doors also contribute to the low maintenance as one of the main objectives was that the owners did not spend time and money when enjoying their vacations.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaIts height, materiality and shape show that the house does not intend to stand out in the landscape. Instead, the brief looked for a simple, rustic and robust architecture in analmost-virgin natural environmentSave this picture!© Diego MedinaProject gallerySee allShow lessSO-IL Develop Prototype Social Housing for León, MexicoArchitecture NewsOppenheim Completes Vernacular Golf Academy in JordanArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Diego Medina+ 28Curated by Clara Ott Share Manufacturers: Cermat, Alumia, Carpintería El Paraiso, Dunas, MasterGAS, Pasalto, Plastigas ArchDaily Projects Houses House in Divisadero / Estudio Galera ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918676/house-in-divisadero-estudio-galera-arquitectura Clipboard Photographs “COPY” Year:  Photographs:  Diego Medina Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918676/house-in-divisadero-estudio-galera-arquitectura Clipboard Lead Architects: Ariel Galera, Cesar Amarante, Francisco Villamil Architects: Estudio Galera Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Cariló, Argentina “COPY” CopyAbout this officeEstudio GaleraOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCariloArgentinaPublished on June 10, 2019Cite: “House in Divisadero / Estudio Galera” [Casa en calle Divisadero / Estudio Galera] 10 Jun 2019.

Garden site

first_imgChoosing a garden site is one of the most important decisions any gardener will make. The ideal place for a vegetable garden is a level well-drained site that receives full sun all day. The site should also get good air circulation and the soil should be loose, fertile and easy to work. Few gardeners are lucky enough to have such a perfect spot. If you’re like most and have a less than ideal location, follow these tips from University of Georgia Cooperative Extension to develop a useable garden site.Follow these guidelines• Choose a site that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day (10 to 12 hours is ideal) in the summer. A gradual sloping hillside with a southern exposure is preferable.• Plant vegetables away from buildings, trees and other things that could shade the garden area. If part of the garden must be in the shade, grow lettuce or cool crops such as cabbage, broccoli and kale in that spot.• Examine the site to see how well the soil drains. Avoid placing the garden in a low spot where water drains poorly and areas that are compacted and stay soggy after a rain. Loamy or sandy loam soils are preferable to a heavy clay soil. Solve minor drainage problems by adding lots of organic matter, which will help retain water and build soil nutrients. Do not add sand to Georgia clay – it will turn your soil into concrete. • Position the garden away from trees and shrubs. Their roots will rob vegetables of nutrients and water. Remember, tree roots often extend far beyond the drip line.• Look for a site that supports lush vegetative growth, even if it’s in the form of dark green, sturdy weeds. If weeds won’t grow in an area, vegetables probably won’t grow there either.• Consider the distance to the nearest water source. A nearby, easy-to-use water supply is important. Watering is crucial at planting time and during the summer heat. If watering is a hassle, the desire to keep the garden going may vanish.• Take note of how far the garden is from your back door. The closer it is to the kitchen, the more you’ll use those fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs.Forethought will be rewarded laterPlanning is an important step to planting and growing vegetables. The more thought you put into your garden ahead of time, the more successful you will be when it comes to harvesting the fruits of your labor. For more information on planting a backyard vegetable garden, contact your local UGA Extension office at 1-800-ASK UGA1.last_img read more

Zuma to discuss fees impasse with university students and management

first_img“Nobody disagrees with the message that students from poor households are facing financial difficulties and possible exclusion,” said South African President Jacob Zuma. (Image: The Presidency)South African President Jacob Zuma is set to meet university management and student leaders on Friday 23 October to discuss the countrywide stalemate over fee increases.The meeting will be held with university vice-chancellors, chairpersons of councils and student leaders at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, with a view to finding a solution to the impasse.This will be Zuma’s second meeting with university management this month. His consultation with vice-chancellors and council chairs on 6 October resolved to set up a task team to explore solutions to short-term student funding challenges.Zuma said the government fully understands the pressure and difficulties confronting students from poor and working class households.“It is important that we work together to find solutions,” he said. “Nobody disagrees with the message that students from poor households are facing financial difficulties and possible exclusion.“Even in the January 8 statement of the governing party this year, we stated that the escalating cost of university education had become another source of exclusion for the poor and vulnerable South African child. All parties should allow space for this matter to be discussed in a manner that will enable us to find a solution.”In a statement released today, the South African government reiterated its commitment to funding for both basic and higher education, and to overcoming funding shortfalls.“Since 1994 government has prioritised education,” the statement reads. “This has translated into substantial funding for both basic and higher education. But given the legacy of the past there is a funding shortfall in higher education.“The current student protests over higher fees which began at Wits University and have since migrated to other campuses are of serious concern to government. The issues raised by the students are legitimate and government is sympathetic to their cause and are in line with our own priorities of ensuring quality and affordable education.“Government is committed to working with student leadership, university management and unions to find a solution to the current impasse and is working towards a long term solution to student funding in South Africa.”last_img read more
