The Sunshine Beach House (previously known as the Prell House) was designed by renowned architect Gabriel Poole in 1997. The Mediterranean and Mexican influenced design consisted of a series of living and sleeping spaces around a central courtyard on a steeply sloping site. The careful arrangement of the spaces protected from the prevailing sea breezes, and opened the house up to the Northern aspect while maintaining privacy. Save this picture!© Brent HardcastleIn many ways, the design was idiosyncratic. The new owners wanted more living space and all-weather connections between the sleeping quarters, without sacrificing the unique character of the place. Save this picture!© Brent HardcastleThe key to the new design remains the central Outdoor Room, which is the new hub of the house. It has a translucent battened roof, which links the living spaces during all but the most inclement weather. The timber seating, landscaping and green wall maintain the outdoor feel of the room. Soft furnishings and cushions soften the space. Save this picture!© Brent HardcastleThe kitchen and dining space have been extended to open up expansive ocean views while still filtering the harsh light and strong breezes that come with an Eastern aspect. The balcony balustrade has been subtly lowered to keep it below the view line of seated diners. Save this picture!© Brent HardcastleUpstairs a new corridor connects the house with the backyard and draws breezes through the outdoor room. A new main bedroom takes advantage of an expanded ocean view with an arrangement of frameless glass windows and retractable louvres.

It is in the convergence between ancient tradition and current technology that Japanese architecture is found, where tradition composes the ambient with the permanence of the oldest habits and customs and the technology presented in a minimalist way, enhancing the surroundings.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosCombining innovation, quality, originality and color, the Iong House project stands out right at the entrance with a “blue box” that prepares the visitor, leaving the highlight for the living room. In the center is a bookcase for objects and books that divides the space following the double height. A circular cellar is the main protagonist of this space, its mixture of colors and shapes ensures personality and boldness so desired by the client. The dining space is integrated with the gourmet kitchen, which has a brushed finish and hidden appliances. The dinner turns pink and has a cabinet all designed by the office, made in the old marquetry technique, rescuing this work so used in the past, and which has a lot of historical value.Save this picture!Plan – 1st floorSave this picture!© Eduardo MacariosOn the upper floor, the room is highlighted with an important oriental element, the dragon, present with great strength in the wallpaper. It translates everything that was initially thought of in the apartment and from it other elements such as the headboard screen and the colors chosen for the bed linen, were defined. Following this more oriental and dark footprint, the master bathroom was designed in a way to imagine being in a spa. The chosen coating has a pleasant texture and gives the feeling of an oasis. For the guest room and office, the same straw line as the master bedroom was followed, mixing colors and symbols used for the whole apartment concept.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosIn short, the apartment is the perfect result between the marriage of the client’s strong personality and the creativity of the architecture firm in translating it in the best possible way, in a unique and special way. Each detail, each composition, each color and each object was designed exclusively for the space in order to result in a rich and harmonic composition.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosProject gallerySee allShow lessC+N House / ALH Taller de ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsAlcôa Pastry / Contacto AtlânticoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Curitiba – State of Paraná, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

It definitely has a broader impact, such as on filling stations, shops and suppliers”. Linkedin Print WhatsApplast_img read more

Tropical Storm Beta to make landfall in Texas Monday

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Tropical Storm Beta is slowly closing in on the Texas coast line Monday morning but is not expected to make landfall until later Monday afternoon.On Monday morning, Beta is looking very disorganized on radar and satellite and it is encountering very unfavorable conditions such as dry air and shear.Beta’s path shows that it will make landfall sometime Monday afternoon between Corpus Christi and Galveston, Texas, as a weak tropical storm with winds near 50 mph.The biggest threat before landfall will be the storm surge that we have already seen and gusty winds near 50 mph.As Beta moves on shore Monday evening, it will stall and sit in one spot for almost two days which could bring as much as 15 inches of rain to Galveston and 6 to 10 inches to Houston.Houston does not drain well so this much rain could cause significant life-threatening flash flooding.Elsewhere, Hurricane Teddy is expected to move near Bermuda with gusty winds but the worst of the storm is expected to miss Bermuda even though a Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the island nation and large waves of up to 13 feet are expected all along the East Coast of the United States.Teddy is also expected to make landfall in Nova Scotia on Wednesday with tropical storm force winds.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Macroplastics at sea around Antarctica

first_imgMore so than at any previous time, there is a heightened awareness of the amount of plastic in the environment, it’s spread to even remote localities and the multiple influences of this on organisms. In the austral summer of 2007/08 Greenpeace and British Antarctic Survey ships (MV Esperanza and RRS James Clark Ross respectively) conducted the first co-ordinated joint marine debris survey of the planet’s most remote seas around East and West Antarctica to reveal floating macroplastics. With observations also made from the ice patrol vessel HMS Endurance in the same season and seabed samples collected from the RRS James Clark Ross, this was the widest survey for plastics ever undertaken around Antarctica. Main features: The 2008 visit of RRS James Clark Ross to the Amundsen Sea breached two last frontiers; the last and most remote sea from which biological samples and plastic debris have been reported. A plastic cup and two fishing buoys were seen in the Durmont D’Urville and Davis seas while two pieces of plastic packaging and a fishing buoy were observed in the Amundsen Sea. Agassiz trawls revealed rich biodiversity on the Amundsen (and south Bellingshausen) seabed but no sunken plastic pieces. We found no microplastics in five epibenthic sledge samples (300 mu m mesh) from the Amundsen seabed. The seabeds immediately surrounding continental Antarctica are probably the last environments on the planet yet to be reached by plastics, but with pieces floating into the surface of the Amundsen Sea this seems likely to change soon. Our knowledge now touches every sea but so does our legacy of lost and discarded plastic. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.last_img read more
