On a river bank, at the bottom of a valley, open to distant cliffs, this simple house shows us closed as a box to keeping small treasures: the first morning sun, the church tower view at the other side of the river, the precipitous cliffs, the maze of trunks of riparian forest… All possessions jealously guarded by the house without knowing that, in fact, is she who belongs to them.Save this picture!© Marc TorraIn this place, we propose a concrete cube that relates to its environment with minimal gestures. Four bites in four opposite corners of the house resolves relations with the outside. Ground floor corner breaks lead to two porches: the one on the corner south prolongs the living room and the kitchen over the garden and, on the northern corner, it generates space for vehicles and access for the house. On the first floor, the breakings generate two terraces for the bedrooms and two skylights for the ground floor.Save this picture!© Marc TorraRough as peach skin, it is only when we bite this fruit of concrete when we discover all the hidden sweetness inside.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessFried Pavillion / Amunt Architekten Martenson und Nagel TheissenSelected ProjectsGertopan House / Laboratorio de ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Photographs “COPY” 2012 Houses CopyAbout this officearnau estudi d’arquitecturaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSant Feliu de PallerolsHousesSpainPublished on September 24, 2013Cite: “Bitten House / arnau estudi d’arquitectura” 24 Sep 2013.

3×2≠3+3 House / panovscott

This project is the renovation of a house, one of two semi-detached single-story dwellings located in Sydney’s densely inhabited inner west. Broadly speaking it is about the making of a new whole by retention of one half of a structure and reconfiguration of the other. Approach to the house remains via the small formal front garden, up three generous steps, and onto a narrow porch. A centrally placed casement window and offset front door punctuate the painted brick elevation. Within, the front rooms have been retained with minimal intervention allowing a continued manner of a dwelling.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThrough the door adjusting eyes encounter the darkened space of a formal sitting room with symmetrically located fireplace on the southern wall. On axis with the front door, a long hall leads past two bedrooms. The high ceilings, small windows, and wonderfully lean vertical timber construction establish the character typical of a Sydney terrace. Cool in both summer and winter, and dark even on the brightest of days, these spaces offer the initial experience of homecoming and become a counterpoint for the character of the rear addition.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanAt the end of the existing hall, a small opening twists to the sky bringing gentle light through the upper level and into the center of the long plan. The light washes down a 45 degree splayed plywood panel. Visible from the dark front rooms and immediately upon entry it announces the differing quality of the spaces ahead.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Elevation 3Moving towards this quiet light, the thin sliver of a brighter room beyond gradually widens with the shifting perspective. Shunted off the previous axial alignment, and past a discreet bathroom, the great communal room of the house is revealed. Light filled, this is a combined kitchen and dining space of slightly smaller area than the lean-to it replaces. Here the elegant vertical proportions and lean timber construction techniques of the front part of the house are reinterpreted.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanContinuing the homecoming journey the room increases to six meters in height reaching upwards at its far end. The number and size of windows also increase gradually to this point allowing the internal space to expand horizontally as well as vertically and for the light levels to approach that of the external environment. Turning 180 degrees and up a narrow stair concealed behind a ply lined wall, the level above contains a master bedroom and ensuite, with a tiny window looking back across the roof to the park. This moment completes the journey within to the most private realm of the house.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanAs architects, our remit required the systematic removal of any kind of material and spatial excess. In collaboration with our wonderful clients, this rigorous process resulted not in spaces of austere minimalism but those enriched by surprising material and spatial juxtapositions.  This engagement with the refreshingly direct solution to a given problem reminds us of the way our grandparent’s generation built their rudimentary structures, perhaps most succinctly described as, with pride and neat timber joints.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThough a humble construction the aspiration for this project was large. Extremes of cost, time and size were matched by those of trust, curiosity, and sophistication in our conversations with client, builder, and council. As a result, the collective offering is what we like to think of as soft and lean; a wonderful place to live.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanProject gallerySee allShow lessVerticle Tides / Atelier AlterSelected ProjectsŞışhane Park / SANALarcSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr×2-3-plus-3-house-panovscott Clipboard Anita Panov & Andrew Scott Photographs:  Brett Boardman 2013 3×2≠3+3 House / panovscott Area:  110 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lead Architects: 3×2≠3+3 House / panovscottSave this projectSave3x2≠3+3 House / panovscottSave this picture!© Brett Boardman+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officepanovscottOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSydneyAustraliaPublished on April 21, 2019Cite: “3×2≠3+3 House / panovscott” 21 Apr 2019.

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books Highlights

first_imgThe Whole SpectrumQueer L.A.: Culture, Art and Activism (Panel 1142)Saturday, 12 p.m., Hoffman HallPanelists largely drawn from USC’s faculty will consider the role of queer culture, art and activism in the City of Angels. Moderated by English and gender studies professor Chris Freeman, the panelists plan to cover the years from 1950 to the present, a groundbreaking period for the LGBTQ community, by any measure.Nighty-night Go the F**k to Sleep (Panel 1112)Saturday, 12 p.m., Taper Hall 101Ever dealt with a child who remained wide-awake even after being read his or her favorite bedtime story or sung an allegedly sleep-inducing lullaby? Ricardo Cortes and Adam Mansbach can relate. The pair will discuss the sometimes painful nighttime ritual as described in their book, Go The F**k To Sleep. The New York Times hailed the best-seller “a new bible for weary parents,” but beware: This lighthearted take on parenting might not be suitable for young children.“Top Chef” Invades Cooking StageSaturday, 12:30 p.m., Cooking StageHungry to learn more about Gail Simmons, one of the most recognizable faces of Bravo’s Top Chef franchise? The judge of the Emmy Award-winning cooking competition will whip up a delicious dish and share details about her childhood from her memoir Talking with My Mouth Full. Featuring the best and worst dishes she’s ever tasted and old photos of a young Simmons’ early days in the kitchen, the culinarian’s memoir should be a treat for any cooking fan.Are You There ’SC? It’s Me, JudyJudy Blume in Conversation with Mary McNamara (Panel 1093)Saturday, 2:30 p.m., Bovard AuditoriumCelebrating the 40th anniversary of her beloved children’s novel Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing, Judy Blume will discuss her career, which has yielded numerous titles with cumulative sales totaling more than 80 million. Perfect for both elementary school students as well as adults reminiscing over their childhoods, Blume’s sit-down with Los Angeles Times television columnist Mary McNamara will involve discussion of Blume’s best-known and best-loved works, including Double Fudge and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.Higher ThoughtE Cannabis Unum (Panel 1115)Saturday, 4:30 p.m., Taper Hall 101The Los Angeles Times’ own Dean Kuipers moderates a discussion of the shifting narrative that has shaped the representations of and discourses about marijuana in America. Considering its history of criminalization, it’s no great surprise that much of the writing emerging about pot frames its use as an outlaw act, but that flat representation is complicated by its medicinal applications, its Hollywood heyday (Pineapple Express, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle) and the fresh wave of activist support that it seems to receive from every generation.America’s GrannyBetty White Interviewed by Karen Grigsby BatesSunday, 1:20 p.m., Los Angeles Times StageBesides her love for acting and television, Betty White’s other passion is animals. The Golden Girls and Hot in Cleveland actress will speak Sunday about her love for all kinds of animals including her Golden Retriever, Pontiac. White’s greatest devotion just might be the creatures at the Los Angeles Zoo since, after advocating for many of the zoo’s exhibits, Los Angeles has named White “Ambassador to the Animals.” Her appearance is a must-see for pet lovers.Michael Ian BlackSunday, 2:30 p.m., Los Angeles Times StageComedian, actor, husband and father Michael Ian Black has had quite the career and family life. In his debut memoir You’re Not Doing it Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death, and Other Humiliations, Black shares life stories, including his childhood with a lesbian feminist mother and how he eventually married his wife despite breaking up with her first. The Ed actor and I Love The… series contributor is likely to say things on Sunday that you are too afraid to admit — sounds like he’s doing something right.From Laker Nation to Children’s Author Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Raymond Obstfeld, What Color is My World?Sunday, 4:15 p.m., Target Children’s StageFans of the Los Angeles Lakers know Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. Soon, parents will know the basketball great as a children’s author. Sharing his first kid’s book What Color Is My World? with Festival of Books visitors Sunday at the Target Children’s Stage, the NBA all-star hopes to educate children about black inventors’ greatest contributions to science.last_img read more
