The clients, a couple with four daughters, wished to have a beach house for all of them, in a 23 meter beach-front lot. Their original idea was to have a seafront main house and three adjoining bungalows in back, so in this approach, only the main house would have frontal views to the ocean, and the bungalows wouldn’t. This is especially important taking in regard that even if today no next-door neighbors have built their beach houses, it could happen in any time in the near future. The program required four social areas with their respective services and 10 bedrooms (4 in the main house and two per bungalow). In addition there was a requirement of a shared service and support area.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaThe extensive program and rich natural environment were the main motivations of the design analysis process. Our efforts were applied to one main initial task which was unforeseen by our clients and in a way quite ambitious: Giving each house a frontal direct view to the sea, taking in regard that only diagonal views to the ocean would not cut it, as the neighbors could build in the future and the ocean views would be compromised. Following this ideal, we took the challenge of designing in order that each bedroom and social area could enjoy an ocean view, considering even the future potential surrounding constructions. Accomplishing diagonal views to the sea through the now uninhabited side lots were not that complex in terms of design, but as the views would probably be obstructed by future buildings, we engaged in the much more complicated design task of resolving all views thru our clients lot directly to the sea.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe work was begun by arranging each house through an imaginary Northwest to Southeast axis in such a way as every house had at least some ocean view and taking advantage of the prevailing winds. In this system, each house was required to overlap a portion of its program with the house immediately in front of it, so that part of the façade would be confronted by the back-side of the house in front. Using conventionally orthogonal volumes, the view to the ocean would be met with a very aggressive wall, perpendicular to the main axis view.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaFrom that point we followed the idea of working with very fluid curved lines on the eastern extension of each house, so the views from each social area and bedroom would slide gently towards the ocean… spatial fluidity towards the ocean was maximized be this approach. Each main bedroom has a major front to the sea, and the overlapping between curves generates visuals for the other rooms.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaOn the west side, curves were also designed to gently lead to porches/terraces facing the sea that serve as access to each bungalow. The access to the main house is placed at the end of a very clear visual axis in the exterior layout. These terraces also serve as wind tunnels that generate freshness to the main social area of each house. Smaller curves and concrete slabs are placed at different heights to redirect and take advantage of air currents so every interior space has a natural wind flow which is very convenient of course in the tropics. Also the curves were designed to provide privacy between social areas.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaThe formal language has generated several interpretations among the local community regarding the contextual elements that may have inspired the design from the beginning (waves, sails, shells, dunes, boats)…  The truth is that the origin of the curvilinear design was the result of an extensive spatial and visual analysis towards the sea. Of course during the design process the similarities with contextual elements were acknowledged and exploded to relate the project to its surroundings.Save this picture!South FacadeProject gallerySee allShow lessFolkwang Library / Max DudlerSelected ProjectsJacques Rougerie Foundation Competition WinnersArticles Share Area:  1062 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2011 Houses OB Houses / Seijo Peon ArquitectosSave this projectSaveOB Houses / Seijo Peon ArquitectosSave this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaHouses•San Bruno, Mexico CopyAbout this officeSeijo Peon ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodSan BrunoMexicoPublished on January 18, 2013Cite: “OB Houses / Seijo Peon Arquitectos” [Conjunto OB / Seijo Peon Arquitectos] 18 Jan 2013.

Senate Will Take Up Farm Bill, Stallman Pleased

first_img Senate Will Take Up Farm Bill, Stallman Pleased Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Will Take Up Farm Bill, Stallman Pleased Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jan 23, 2013 SHARE American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman says the introduction in the 113th Congress of the farm bill approved by the Senate last session represents real hope for farmers and ranchers that the Senate will aggressively move forward on a long-term bill to give farmers the risk management certainty they need. He says it will ultimately take real bipartisan cooperation to get the farm bill to the finish line. He is hopeful Senate Ag Chair Debbie Stabenow and Ranking Member Thad Cochran will work quickly to build on the bipartisan work that was the hallmark of the Senate farm bill last year. SHARE Source: NAFB News Service Stallman encourages House Speaker John Boehner and other House members to follow the example set by Committee Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson in their actions to pass a bipartisan farm bill that worked for all Americans out of their committee. According to Stallman – the nation’s farmers deserve the policy certainty a five-year farm bill would provide. He says we need a flexible, reform-minded bill that draws its key risk management tools from crop insurance provisions.

Young entrepreneurs

first_imgCreated businesses based on their talents”The students used a survey to determine what businesses areneeded in the area,” said Diane Sumner, Jasper and Jonescounties’ Extension 4-H agent. “Then they looked at theirpersonal skills and talents before deciding on a business tostart.”Sumner said her goal was to make the program fun while teachingthe students important skills they can use for a lifetime. Thestudents had to set goals for their businesses, develop marketingand business plans and determine what they would do with theirprofits.The program also taught the students how to estimate supplies andlabor costs before setting a price on their wares. * Charity Daniel launched Charity’s Creations, specializing incloth jewelry pouches, shoe bags and other items.* Rebecca Bean began her own cattle-raising company, Over theMoon Cattle.* Katie Amos created Candles by Katie.* Stephen Daniel founded Stephen’s Benches, Birdhouses andBookcases.* Carrie Howell started Confetti Candles.* Leslie Peterson unveiled Udderly Adorable Gifts, bath productsmade from goats’ milk.* Colton Strawn produced Professional Printing.* Holly Ellington opened Hollie’s Hobbies.* And Kelsey Matthews started her own house-cleaning business.The students marketed their products to their teachers, their parents’ co-workers and their church friends. “Two of the girls are selling their product through their Mom’s home business,” said Sumner. “They also have rented booths and craft fairs.” By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaThe economy picked up a bit recently in two Georgia counties,where 10 new businesses opened their doors. All 10 businessowners are too young to own homes or drive cars.The young entrepreneurs all got their start as participants in”Get Ready, Get Set, Start Your Own Business,” a program offeredby their county Extension Service offices’ 4-H program and fundedby Jones County Family Connection.The program was open to sixth- through eighth-graders from Jonesand Jasper counties. It began last October, when the studentsstudied the success of Chick-fil-A Founder Truett Cathy. “A team of sisters, Brittny and Mariah Smith, borrowed money fromtheir mother to start their basket-making business, BriMarCreations,” Sumner said. “Theirs ended up being one of the mostprofitable student businesses, even after paying back theirstart-up loan.”The student businesses established through the program werediverse: * Daniel Peterson and Zeke Marzigliano started Dixie Woodworking,creating handcrafted bluebird houses.* Amelia Thomaston began Desserts in a Jar.* Dana Sires created Dana’s Pillow Cottage. They turned down start-up loansNone of the students opted to borrow money to start theirbusinesses. At least not from the 4-H program.center_img “The program actually had funds available to loan the studentsfor use in starting up their businesses,” Sumner said. “The ideawas for them to borrow the money, and then learn about loans andhow to pay them back.” The future meets the presentThe young entrepreneurs ended the program with a reception tointroduce the new businesses to area business leaders. “The hardest part for many of these students was meeting andtalking with the adult business leaders,” Sumner said. “Theyreally had to psyche themselves up to shake hands and make eyecontact.”Sumner said she was pleased to see how much the students learnedin addition to the main points of running a business.”They learned how to set goals and to stick with it until theirgoals were accomplished,” she said. “They also learned to presentthemselves as professionals, a skill that should serve them wellas they enter the work force in a few years.”As the program ended, the students all left with a little moremoney in their pockets than when the program began. Sumner cameaway with pride in her students’ accomplishments.”When one of the young men arrived at the reception in a suit andtie, I was so proud,” said Sumner. “You never know what anactivity like this will do for a child down the road. Even ifthey never go into business, the life skills they learned willstay with them into adulthood.”last_img read more
