The project elaboration has started from the request of building two houses on the same site – each one for one brother. The lofts are almost the same, having only some small modifications in program and detail between them, and that’s where their nickname comes from Casas Gêmeas, which in Portuguese means “twin houses”. Attending each dweller specificity, one of the houses has a wide living room located on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a suite upstairs. In the other house, part of the living room was transformed into an office/clinic, since the owner often works from home.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Maíra AcayabaOne of the bedrooms upstairs was turned into a flexible room which can assume diverse uses. Due to the narrow lot, providing less than 10 meters wide for each house, we chose to occupy its lateral distance and make room for three patios. Those openings bring the outside inside the house, creating a fluid and blurred line between them. Besides the frontal and the backyard patio, there is the central patio, one of the residence’s main elements, responsible for bringing light and air to the social areas placed around it.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaThe project’s natural lightening and airing aspects – and consequently its windows and accesses – were carefully thought and optimized. The wide frames play an important role in allowing the environments to be flexible and integrate, spatially and visually. The kitchen, for instance, can be closed or added to the dining room. The same occurs in one of the bedrooms that can be turned into a living room, an office or can be closed and used as a bedroom for occasional visitors.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaThe patio when used with open frames, can be an extension for the living room, the stair’s corridor, and the dining room, turning the whole ground floor into a single environment, with a greater feeling of spaciousness. In order to control the levels of brightness and provide privacy for the owners, some openings have received translucent glass (for example in the toilets), while others, metallic blinds (as the ones located in the suites). The sunlight also comes through skylights. The ground floor concentrates mostly the social environments – living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry and office (in one of the houses).Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaThe idea was to keep the floor as fluid as possible, without walls or any visual block, integrating the patio and providing light to the rest. Going upstairs, the footbridge enveloped in glass provides an overview of the patio and divides the main suite from the other rooms and intimate environments. The constructive elements are simple, mostly prefab components such as concrete slabs and structural bricks. Between the two houses, above the wall, there is a band of perforated material that helps to keep the privacy on the first floor between then but still provides luminosity in a delicate way.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaProject gallerySee allShow lessJunzi Kitchen Chinese Restaurant / Xuhui ZhangSelected ProjectsQuintas House / Etéreo ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Gêmeas Houses / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e DesignSave this projectSaveGêmeas Houses / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918919/gemeas-houses-zoom-urbanismo-arquitetura-e-design Clipboard Save this picture!© Maíra Acayaba+ 29Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Brazil “COPY” CopyAbout this officeZoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSão PauloBrazilPublished on June 18, 2019Cite: “Gêmeas Houses / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design” [Casas Gêmeas / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design] 18 Jun 2019.

HII gets $1.4B contract for first Flight II LPD ship

first_img View post tag: LPD Photo: HII rendering of LPD 30 The US Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division a $1.47 billion contract for the detail design and construction of the amphibious transport dock LPD 30.The ship will be the 14th in the San Antonio class and the first Flight II LPD.LPD 30 is the evolution of the dock landing platform that strengthens the Navy and Marine Corps’ needs in future warfare. Utilizing the LPD 17 class’ proven hull, the Flight II ship will feature a fully capable flight deck and hangar, a well deck, and the vehicle and cargo capacities to support and sustain more than 500 combat-equipped marines for up to 30 days.Ingalls has delivered 11 San Antonio-class ships to the Navy and has two more under construction. Fort Lauderdale (LPD 28) will launch in 2020 and deliver in 2021; the keel for Richard M. McCool Jr. (LPD 29) will be laid later this year.Start of fabrication on LPD 30 is scheduled for 2020.“Ingalls looks forward to continuing our strong legacy of providing the men and women of our naval forces with the capable and survivable warships they need and deserve,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding president Brian Cuccias. “The LPD Flight II builds upon the significant investment that has been made in this platform to improve the capability and flexibility of our deployed Navy-Marine Corps team. LPD 30 will leverage a hot production line and further benefit from the investments we continue to make in our shipbuilders and facilities. We are honored to be a part of the team that will provide this next-generation platform today.”The 684-foot-long and 105-foot-wide San Antonio-class are used to embark and land Marines, their equipment and supplies ashore via air cushion or conventional landing craft and amphibious assault vehicles, augmented by helicopters or vertical takeoff and landing aircraft such as the MV-22 Osprey. The ships support a Marine Air Ground Task Force across the spectrum of operations, conducting amphibious and expeditionary missions of sea control and power projection to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions throughout the first half of the 21st century.

Musical Mayhem Continues In NOLA With DeadFeat, Karl Denson, & The Nth Power’s Tribute To Bob Marley

first_imgNew Orleans is currently under musical attack. With Jazz Fest happening over the next two weekends, the city is transforming into an entirely different world, where creatures of the night stay out all hours, hopping from venue to venue in search of nonstop music after a day at the fairgrounds. With countless superjams, unexpected sit-ins and collaborations, and no rules or expectations of conformity, Jazz Fest, from beginning to end, is its own animal.The Official L4LM Guide To Jazz Fest After DarkAcross six stages, five tents, and endless parades, the world’s greatest gumbo is served by some of the most influential musicians of our time at the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival during the day. Perhaps it is the exceptionally diverse range in talent, or the endless rows of tents with the city’s best cuisine, but there’s something in the air that keeps fans coming back every year for more.This year’s first Saturday headliners included Alabama Shakes, Maroon 5, Usher & The Roots, and Johnny Lang, with earlier performances from Jon Batiste & Stay Human, Amos Lee, Rebirth Brass Band, and so many more. Enjoy the photo images in the gallery below from Marc Millman.After the festival, the flood gates officially opened for all late-night activity to follow. The madness ensued with performances from an array of musicians gathered together for musical mayhem. Dead Feat featuring Anders Osborne, Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat, Jackie Greene, Brady Blade and special guest John Kadlecik (Furthur) teamed up with Midnight North featuring Grahame Lesh at Republic NOLA.Meanwhile Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and special guest Donald Harrison threw down at One Eyed Jacks, which later turned into The Nth Power presents WAKE UP & LIVE: The Music of Bob Marley featuring Cyril Neville, Raja Kassis, Rob Marscher, Andrew Baham, Skerik, Weedie Braimah, Shira Elias, Boyd, and Adam Joseph. It was insane, and photographer Jeremy Scott was there to capture the three shows for those sitting at home with an aggressive case of FOMO. Enjoy his gallery below.Performances from Break Science Live Band with Russ Liquid Test and The Werks took over the Howlin’ Wolf, while Soul Brass Band and Wyclef Jean held down the House of Blues.

NBA playoffs 2019: Nets’ Jarrett Allen was fouled in final seconds of Game 4

first_img NBA playoffs wrap 2019: Celtics sweep Pacers; Warriors, Trail Blazers extend leads “So the big point of emphasis this year was the wrapping, wrapping the player when he rolls to the rim,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said after Saturday’s game. “Judge for yourself if you watch the clip, but there was a clear wrap by Tobias Harris on the roll.”I am just disappointed. That was a point of emphasis on day one at the coaches’ meetings — that they were going to emphasize that at the beginning of the game, the end of the game and all season. So how that all of a sudden doesn’t become a foul on the wrap, I don’t understand that.”The league also admitted it missed a call on Nets  guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who should have been penalized for carrying with 1:45 left in the game.Game 4 was particularly rough on the teams, with a brawl breaking out after Joel Embiid swatted hard at Allen, which prompted Jared Dudley to shove Embiid. Jimmy Butler entered the fray to defend Embiid, which resulted in a shoving match that also involved Ben Simmons. Both Butler and Dudley were ejected, and Embiid received a Flagrant 1 foul for his role in the scrum. As a result, Butler received a $15,000 fine and Dudley was hit with a $25,000 fine.Nets general manager Sean Marks reportedly was infuriated that Embiid didn’t receive a Flagrant 2 foul, which prompted him to burst into the referees’ locker room after the game.That resulted in Marks receiving a $25,000 fine and being suspended without pay for Game 5 of the series. The NBA conceded its referees’ missed the foul on Nets player Jarrett Allen in the final seconds of the team’s Game 4 matchup against the 76ers, but it’s too little, too late.In the NBA’s Last Two Minute Report (via ESPN), it was ruled that Sixers forward Tobias Harris grabbed at Allen in the waning seconds, which stopped him from being able to release the ball.center_img NBA playoffs 2019: Warriors’ Klay Thompson says he ended slump by jumping in the ocean A foul wasn’t called, but if it was, Allen would have had the chance for two free throws, which could have tied the game.Instead, the 76ers had time to converge on him and Allen eventually turned the ball over. The 76ers won that game, 112-108, and took a 3-1 lead in the series. Related Newslast_img read more
