Wing House / Studio Guilherme Torres

In 2015, the program requested by the client was relatively simple: a house just for him, with space to welcome his daughter on weekends and maybe in the future to start a new family. Another request was to make the most of the view of the valley in the back, which is a permanent preservation zone, in addition to designing the house entirely in exposed concrete. The first idea was to explore the slope of the land, locating the living room integrated with the kitchen and pool at the lowest level of the property. At the central level service structures, a small home theater and an office/guest room were located, with the upper floor reserved for 3 suites.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioThe aim of the project was that all rooms had the same privileged view of nature. Another key point of the proposal was to create a dramatic free span, framing nature and accommodating the main access to the house and garage. To make use of this effect, a gable covered in copper cuts the lot in half, supporting the upper structure of the residence and creating a counterpoint to the simple and sculptural architecture of the house. The sculptural effect of the concrete structure came about through a “folding exercise” in the architect’s words. “I composed the blocks by materials: in the basement a volume covered in marble, on the middle floor a volume in copper and on the upper floor, a wooden box. Embracing the three materials, a concrete shell, which is limited to just two support points”.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!ColagemSave this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSuch simplicity is only conceptual considering how exquisite the final touches, fittings and material encounters are. Excellence in the quality of finishes is the client’s merit: a perfectionist passionate about architecture. In the hiatus since the house was built a lot has happened; today it is also home to his wife, a small son and another one on the way. The architecture is timeless, but time doesn’t stop.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioProject gallerySee allShow lessDandelion Courtyard Building / Architecture Studio YEINSelected ProjectsLamplighter School Innovation Lab / Marlon Blackwell ArchitectSelected Projects Share Wing House / Studio Guilherme Torres Wing House / Studio Guilherme TorresSave this projectSaveWing House / Studio Guilherme Torres Photographs:  Denilson Machado – MCA Estúdio Houses “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940943/wing-house-studio-guilherme-torres Clipboard Guilherme Torres Projects 2018 Lead Architect: center_img Architects: Studio Guilherme Torres Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio Guilherme TorresOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCuritibaBrazilPublished on June 13, 2020Cite: “Wing House / Studio Guilherme Torres” [Casa Asa / Studio Guilherme Torres] 13 Jun 2020.

first_img Published 11:00 pm Friday, October 5, 2012 Charlie Lucas turns ‘scrap’ into art “The Art of Charlie Lucas” is on display at The Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy through November 15. Lucas is a folk artist that focuses on bringing “scrap” metal to life in his artwork, earning him the nickname “Tin Man.”If you get lost and happen upon Pink Lily, Alabama – and you almost have to be lost to happen upon Pink Lily — then you could find yourself in a folk-art wonderland.But, then you might miss it all together.What could mistakenly be thought a junkyard is actually the outdoor wonderland of the art of the Tin Man, Charlie Lucas, an internationally acclaimed folk artist who gives “scrap” new life. Sponsored Content By Blood Sugar Blaster “The Johnson Center is proud and honored to bring the ‘The Art of Charlie Lucas’ to Troy,” said Morgan Drinkard, Center director. “We have 85 pieces of Charlie Lucas’ work, sculptures and paintings. It is an amazing exhibition that fills all eight galleries of the Center.”Morgan said she does not remember any exhibition at the Johnson Center that has filled all galleries.“We are very excited about this exhibition,” she said. “It’s a fun show. It’s colorful and I think that everybody who visits the Charlie Lucas’ exhibit will find something they want to take home. He reaches everybody in some way.”The Charlie Lucas story is not one of rags to riches. While he might admit to the rags part of the story, he shuns any idea of material riches. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “Everything in life doesn’t have to be shiny and new,” Lucas said. “That’s not natural.”Lucas has found a way to take shiny and new pieces that have turned useless and turn them into sculptures that turn the heads of motorists streaking through Pink Lily and totally blow away folk art connoisseurs around the world.Those who visit the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy through Nov. 15 will have the opportunity to see the genius of Charlie Lucas on exhibit. Not just the metal sculptures that earned Lucas the nickname “Tin Man” but also his paintings.

His great-grandfather was a blacksmith. His grandfather was gunsmith and a chair caner. His grandmother was a weaver and his dad was an auto mechanic in Jefferson County where Lucas was born.“Charlie said that he was a creative child,” Drinkard said. “He would go off by himself and make his own toys out of scrap materials and junk. When he was 14 years old, he went from town to town with a paintbrush and bucket knocking on doors asking for work.”Lucas was married with six children and living in Autauga County when a severe back injury knocked him flat.

He had developed a fondness for metal and was fascinated by the many ways that it could be used and reused and how metal could be welded and twisted.He had also realized that there was beauty in the old and was fascinated by the rusty way metal, wire, wheels and “scrap” could work together to make something greater than themselves.Knowing all this, Lucas discovered sculpture and the artist in him was released.Today, Lucas works from his warehouse studio in Selma and is one of the most highly regarded folk artist in the country. He is also in great demand as a lecturer. He lectures on his art at Yale University and in schoolrooms across the country.Lucas will be in Troy Oct. 11-14 and will conduct workshops at county, city and private schools along with Tara Sartorius, retired curator of education at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.Lucas will discuss his art with the students at Banks Primary, Pike County, Troy Elementary and Goshen Elementary schools and Charles Henderson Middle School and Pike Liberal Arts. Following his presentations, Sartorius will work with students to complete an art project designed by Lucas.Lucas will take the stage of the We Piddle Around Theater on Friday night, Oct.13 to share stories of his friendship with legendary Alabama storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham.Their friendship spanned the barriers of age, education, social status and race. Lucas will stir memories of the beloved legendary lady that will bring laughter and tears.A reception will be held in Lucas’s honor from 2 until 4 p.m. Oct. 14, at the Johnson Center for the Arts.“The public is invited to attend the reception and hear Charlie Lucas talk about his art and tell the stories behind the pieces,” Drinkard said. “The stories are as interesting as the pieces are fascinating.”Drinkard expressed appreciation to the Alabama State Council on the Arts for sponsoring the Charlie Lucas programs — the school workshops, the storytelling event and the exhibition. The school workshops are a part of the Tony Scott Art Bridges Program.“The support of the Alabama State Council on the Arts makes it possible for us to bring many outstanding art programs and events to Pike County,” she said. “Without the art council’s support, we would not have been able to bring Charlie Lucas to Pike County to the benefit of hundreds of school children, theater goers and visitors to the Johnson Center.last_img read more
