The project is based on the upgrade of a 70’s three-store multi-family residential building in the center of Sant Esteve de Palautordera, built with structural ceramic walls. A young couple without children wanted a home adapted to their current and future needs. On the access floor (an old warehouse) there is a Kitchen-Dining Room and a small bathroom and washing room. On the top and upgraded floor, there are three rooms (two of them connected and with a less defined program) and a bathroom. The hallway takes advantage of its situation under a higher roof to illuminate and collaborate with the bioclimatic behavior. The weight of the traditional construction roof is replaced with a new light wooden structure due to its low environmental impact and good thermal performance. The new structural system leans on the existing ceramic structural walls and allows a fast construction process without affecting the foundation of the building and, therefore, the activity of the ground floor restaurant.Save this picture!© Andrés FlajszerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andrés FlajszerThe materiality responds to the will to respect the pre-existences, as well as adjust to the economic budget. On the existing floor, the old structural brick walls are white-painted to provide some comfort. Only the new bricks used for the construction of the bank were left unpainted. In the upper floor wooden structure, the warmth is sought by giving a fir finish to the structural walls while all those that are not part of it are painted white. The basement of wooden walls stays visible to illustrate the constructive reality of the home. The steel ladder, halfway between the two constructive realities and completely hanging from the slab, seeks lightness to avoid affecting the transparency of the access plant. Next to the access door, a gesture is done to hang up the coats and perform as a bench to remove the shoes. The project seeks dialogue with the environment through the façade. The envelope maintains the color and appearance of the pre-existing building, but an exterior gallery is being placed to permit an exit, control the sun’s incidence and improve privacy. A lightweight steel structure, with cladding pavements and mesh sides, separates from the façade the whole set of folding wood slats which reinterprets the traditional balcony and blinds.Save this picture!© Andrés FlajszerThe project is based on the “active user/passive building” strategies to decrease the air conditioning energy consumption under 8KWh/m2year. During winter, the large windows of the main façade as well as the possibility of lowering the slats on the balcony allow you to enjoy a great solar capture. This energy is being kept in the concrete slabs, acting as the inertia storage of the house. There are two summer strategies: protection from solar irradiation and a good natural ventilation system. The first one is guaranteed with the façade shading system, where the placement of the slats protects them from direct sunlight. On the other hand, the roof shape is used as a solar chimney. The East and West orientations generate an overheating on the upper part offering a constant airflow evacuating through the top windows thanks to the Venturi effect.Save this picture!© Andrés FlajszerSave this picture!SecciónSave this picture!© Andrés FlajszerProject gallerySee allShow lessRehabilitation of Two Dwellings in El Cabanyal / Lola Bataller + Noelia FalcónSelected ProjectsZerno Coffee Shop / Studio11Selected Projects Share Casa l’Alba i en Lluc / OBO EstudiSave this projectSaveCasa l’Alba i en Lluc / OBO Estudi ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Projectslast_img read more


Keenan to sponsor mud volleyball tournament

first_imgWhite Field will turn brown Sunday when Keenan Hall hosts the 12th annual Muddy Sunday mud volleyball event to end AnTostal Week.Sophomore Greg Brainard, one of the event commissioners, said Muddy Sunday serves as a fun opportunity to relax with friends before finals week.“It’s always right after the AnTostal Week, so it’s kind of part of AnTostal and it kind of closes out the week,” Brainard said. “It’s an awesome chance to unwind and have some fun with some friends before finals and before the end of the semester as everyone goes into summer, all, of course, while giving back to a good cause, and that’s kind of the main point behind the whole thing.”The event costs $10 per person with all funds benefitting Habitat for Humanity, which Brainard said attracted him and his co-commissioner, sophomore Jack Higham, to organizing the event.“I think a big reason me and Jack wanted to do it was because we saw that it was a good thing for Keenan to put on to give back to Habitat for Humanity,” he said. “I know that a big part of our promotional goal is letting people know that it is for charity and, you know, it is first of all about giving back and it is a fun event, so it’s kind of a two-fold advertisement.”Higham said he and Brainard want to make sure the charity aspect of the event doesn’t get lost among the fun on Sunday.“I think that while everyone’s having fun, they already paid their money so they might forget what the event is for, and that’s what we’re going to still emphasize, with the tent and a sign that says this is for this organization and we’re really happy you guys played and paid,” Higham said. “It’s a win-win. You pay money for a great cause and you also get to have a lot of fun while you’re doing it.”Muddy Sunday is not only fun to participate in, Higham said, but also fun to watch with plenty of games to be played and more structure than in previous years.“The event itself is just so much fun to participate [in], and it’s fun to watch, too,” he said. “We extended the time a little bit, the length of the event itself, and also, it’ll look more like an event. … In previous years, there was just a guy at a table, you’d go register and you’d go play volleyball, which is fine, but it was our event, we wanted to do it our way and make sure everyone could see that it is a Keenan Hall event and it’s for a good cause.”Brainard said he and Higham came up with new ideas to improve the atmosphere of the event.“Something new that Jack put in this year is that when you register your team you actually sign up with a song choice,” Brainard said. “So we’ll have music playing as everyone’s coming in and you kind of just have it be a fun atmosphere and maybe you’ll get to hear the song you requested while you’re playing, ideally. Just little things like that, just making it a fun atmosphere and a fun event, you know, is really what we tried to bring to it this year.”Brainard suggested Muddy Sunday could be used to promote dorm community by RAs organizing and signing up a section team to participate.“Muddy Sunday is a great opportunity to have a section event,” he said. “In that way we’re kind of envisioning it as really fostering Notre Dame community, and even within that, dorm community too. This is all just a chance for friends to come together, and I think it’s a great chance for an RA to bring their section out and as a bonding event for the section. … Why not bring your section out here and give back?”Tags: Antostal, Keenan Hall, Muddy Sundaylast_img read more


Gerard Pique – Barcelona might have lost fear factor

first_imgBarcelona defender Gerard Pique says his team may have lost their fear factor ahead of their last-16 Champions League tie against Manchester City.The Spanish side won the competition in 2009 and 2011 but have failed to make it past the semi-finals since.Former Manchester United centre-back Pique said: “Maybe they don’t fear us as before because in the last two years we didn’t win the Champions League.”We can still be the best, but we have to show to the world we can do it.”Barca’s most recent Champions League successes came under former coach Pep Guardiola, but Tito Vilanova’s side were thumped 7-0 in a two-legged semi-final by eventual winners Bayern Munich last season.Still United with Reds Pique, who played for Manchester United between 2004 and 2008, said he would still prefer to play for his former team over Manchester City despite his old club’s woes this season. “What do you think?” he asked. “If I had to choose one, it would be United.”The club – with Gerardo Martino now in charge – have had to contend with off the field problems this term, with the transfer of Brazilian forward Neymar under investigation by a Spanish court and Sandro Rosell resigning as club president as a consequence.Meanwhile, Manuel Pellegrini has guided City to the Champions League knockout stages for the first time, their free-scoring football including a 3-2 win over Bayern at the Allianz Arena. Such an approach has drawn comparisons with Barcelona, and Martino said City, who are chasing a quadruple of Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League titles, were one of the best teams in the world. The Argentine, whose side are top of La Liga, said: “They do play a similar style to us, but they are not a mini-Barcelona or a mini-anyone else.”I think they are one of the greatest teams in the world.”They have great Spanish players such as Jesus Navas and David Silva, but it is not only Spanish players.”They have great players from all over the world such as Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho.”City will be without top scorer Aguero, who has a hamstring injury, but Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho could return after injury. Martino said: “For the last six seasons Barcelona have made it to the semi-finals and the fans are used to that.”It will be difficult to understand if we don’t go through but it is the tightest tie of all.”Pique, 27, added: “The only way we have to speak is on the pitch. We know that in the club in the last six months there were some things that we cannot control as players.”All we can do is play on the pitch and show the world that we can still be the best and try and play a great game against a great team like Manchester City.”last_img read more


Scathing letter accompanies MLB counterproposal as impasse with players continues

first_imgNegotiations between MLB and the players’ union to start the 2020 season have heated up — but not in a good way.Along with their counterproposal sent to the union Friday, MLB’s deputy commissioner and chief legal officer Dan Halem included a biting letter addressed to the union’s lead negotiator, Bruce Meyer. The letter (a copy of which was obtained by the Orange County Register) makes clear the ownership’s position regarding the March agreement between the two sides and shows disdain for the players’ stance — that they were guaranteed full pro-rated salaries for any games played should baseball resume this year.The letter’s tone makes it seem more likely that any baseball played this season will only come after MLB commissioner Rob Manfred mandates an abbreviated regular season (around 50 games) and an expanded postseason (played on time in October) that would bring the TV revenue MLB craves.“While we recognize that this essentially has been a negotiation with ourselves because the (Players) Association has offered little beyond what we already have the right to do under the March Agreement, we will make another attempt to reach an agreement that is a win-win for both sides,” Halem said in the letter before outlining the latest proposal — a 72-game regular season beginning around July 14 and ending September 27 with an expanded postseason. During negotiations in March, Halem said in the letter, ownership made it “crystal clear” that playing without fans in attendance “was not economically feasible.”“We provided you with financial information showing the amount of revenue from gate/in-park (approximately 50% of local revenue),” Halem said Friday. “The Commissionerhimself said during the negotiations, according to our bargaining notes, ‘We’re not playing empty, it just doesn’t work for us.’ The Association acknowledged as much, which resulted in Section I of the March Agreement, providing the Office of the Commissioner with the unilateral right to resume the season only when (among otherconditions) there were no restrictions on regular fan access in all 30 Major League ballparks.“And the Association, for giving up essentially nothing because players had no right under their contracts to be paid during the national emergency, received hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of benefits, including a full year of service for a shortenedseason … a full year of service if there was no season, and salary advances totaling $170 million (which were non-refundable if there was no season).”Halem dismisses player suggestions that MLB has an “obligation to play as many games as possible.” That is “flatly contradicted” by the March agreement, he said in the letter, which places “no obligation” on teams “to play any games, let alone any particular number of games.”“We negotiated that provision precisely to protect the Clubs from being leveraged into the economically infeasible alternative of playing in empty stadiums without a corresponding reduction in salaries,” Halem said.According to Halem’s letter, “everyone involved in the (March) negotiations understood that if we could not resume play with regular fan access, the parties would have a subsequent negotiation over reductions to player compensation to account for the loss of billions of dollars of gate/in-park revenue.”Related Articles Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Will Smith: ‘I feel like it’s been five years’ since his 2019 debut That proposal has been characterized as dead on arrival by many players posting on social media.“It expired as soon as they hit send,” Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams posted on Twitter, referring to MLB’s demand for a response this weekend.In obvious reference to the counterproposal, Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen simply posted, “lol.” When asked to be more specific, he responded, “Laugh Out Loud.”Players have made it clear they believe they are the ones negotiating “with ourselves.” Each of ownership’s three proposals have allotted roughly the same amount of money to salaries — 70 to 80 percent of pro-rated salary tied to only slightly increased numbers of games to be played.The players’ union has remained steadfast in its interpretation of the March agreement — that it guarantees any pay for 2020 will be fully pro-rated based on the number of games to be played. Halem again asserted MLB’s belief that the agreement (which included a $170 million non-refundable salary advance to the players) gave it the right to negotiate player compensation based on economic realities — such as the loss of revenue from games staged without fans in attendance. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img It is clear the two sides’ different interpretations of the March agreement “has been a stumbling block to negotiating a resolution” — something which has been apparent for weeks now. But Halem adds a further swipe at the union’s stance.“You suggest in your letter that the Association’s 89-game proposal at full daily salaries ‘is made in the interests of settlement,’” he wrote. “However, the parties are not engaged in settlement discussions, and it is unclear what exactly you are trying to ‘settle.’” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
