Panorama House / Jim Caumeron Design

You have to drive outside of the village to enjoy the scenic views Tagaytay and Tall volcano offer. The second dilemma is how the house can feel like a weekend home when the area of ​​the building footprint is just 100 square meters. I’ve called it the Panorama idea. Since there are no redeeming views in the surrounding area, other than the park across the property, the architect proposed that the house will have its own “world,” he termed it introverted context, done by isolating some outside views.Save this picture!© Jim CaumeronThe Architect imagined it as a volume with two horizontal cuts. One cut for the ground level for views, ventilation and extended space, and the second level for wind circulation and views to the outside. In the Philippines, wind circulation is paramount as it gets very hot during the summer months. The site is slightly sloping, with a 1.5 meter drop when you reach the other end of the property line. This gave an opportunity to sink the living and dining areas 1 meter down, making the park across the lot visually-framed on eye-level. The steps that connect the entrance space to the living area was made into an afternoon nap space as it is a common practice for Filipinos to make their kids sleep in the afternoon.Save this picture!© Jim CaumeronThe living space expands to the garden area for breeze and view of the white-pebbled garden. The choice of using rocks instead of grass was because of daily maintenance issues. This resulted into a more other-worldly effect of the ground living areas as the white rocks bounce light that brighten the atmosphere. The west side of the ground floor is walled up to protect the living space from the heat of the 2 pm-4pm sun. This is where the service areas were located. The living area also has a high ceiling allowing room for rising warm air. The space is also shielded from the warming morning with the ground floor’s deep recessed canopy.Save this picture!© Jim CaumeronSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jim CaumeronThe location of the main glass door frames a tree nearby, visible when one standing at the atrium space. The second level has a combination of horizontal and diagonal cuts that run around the structure’s envelope. One side has a bigger opening to embrace sunrise and breeze, and the west side where the sun is stronger, has smaller windows meant to pull out the air for passive cooling. The west and east windows are connected by diagonal windows on the north and south side that provide a strong profile of the cut-volume design on the facade. The ceiling slope was also meant to influence the behavior of air to cross from one side to the other.Save this picture!© Jim CaumeronRoom partitions were limited to a certain height to accommodate clerestory windows and allow the passage of air. The master’s bedroom dimension was expanded by occupying some space at the stair-well. This became a play area for the client’s 4 year old daughter. The windows of this play area look out to the stair well that is spatially concealed allowing a wind-tunnel effect that cools down the 2nd floor common areas. Air can be felt when one is going up and down the stairs as the wind circulates toward the small ribbon windows of the west walls.Save this picture!© Jim CaumeronProject gallerySee allShow lessLucent Apartment Building / Plazibat ArchitectsSelected ProjectsCL-76 House / El Aleph Arquitectura + Fritz + Fritz ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Panorama House / Jim Caumeron Design Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Panorama House / Jim Caumeron DesignSave this projectSavePanorama House / Jim Caumeron Design Save this picture!© Jim Caumeron+ 22Curated by Hana Abdel Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Houses “COPY”center_img Philippines Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Jim Caumeron Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects CopyHouses•Tagaytay, Philippines 2019 CopyAbout this officeJim Caumeron DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTagaytayOn FacebookPhilippinesPublished on June 25, 2020Cite: “Panorama House / Jim Caumeron Design” 25 Jun 2020.

Three men appear in court in Derry on terrorism charges

first_img Three men appear in court in Derry on terrorism charges Twitter WhatsApp Three men have appeared in court accused of possessing a rocket in the Creggan area of Derry last week.42-year-old Jason Lee Ceulemans, of Lecky Road, 47-year-old Neil Christopher Hegarty, of Sackville Court and 47-year-old Damien Harkin, of Westland Avenue, are jointly charged with possessing explosives with intent to endanger life and possessing a walkie talkie for use in terrorism on December 6.The three defendants are further charged with conspiracy to murder unknown persons between November 22 and December 7.All three men refused to recognise the court and stayed silent when asked if they understood the charges.An investigating officer told Derry Magistrate’s Court that police believed the explosively formed projectile was for activity on behalf of the ‘new IRA’.She said the device found in the car was viable and contained 200g of semtex.She added it could have caused “extensive damage, loss of life or serious injury”.Bail was strongly opposed by police who said they believed that all three defendants were “active members of the new IRA”.A bail application was adjourned after the investigating officer confirmed that the allegation the device was linked to the new IRA is based on intelligence.Defence solicitors for the men Paddy MacDermott and Ciaran Shiels applied for the bail application to be adjourned for the intelligence to be served on them.Ceulemans, Hegarty and Harkin were remanded in custody to appear in court again, via videolink, on Thursday.As they were led from the dock people in the packed public galleries stood and clapped and cheered.

California wildfires force evacuations as fierce winds fuel the blazes

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Wildfires are erupting across California, fueled by dry air, fierce winds and high temperatures.Over 190,000 California customers are in the dark Thursday as power companies preemptively cut electricity in an attempt to keep fires from starting.The Kincade wildfire began in Sonoma County in Northern California’s wine country Wednesday night.As winds reached up to 76 mph, the blaze exploded to a massive 10,000 acres overnight.The Kincade fire is 0 percent contained and the cause is under investigation.Cal Fire spokesperson Amy Head said the fire is wind driven and it’s hard for crews to keep up.“We just can’t keep ahead of it … we are almost chasing it and trying to catch up with it,” she said Thursday morning.The community of Geyserville is under mandatory orders to evacuate immediately, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office warned Thursday.In Southern California, winds are expected to be even stronger due to the higher mountain range, creating Santa Ana winds.In San Bernardino County, which is inland from Los Angeles, the Old Water fire is threatening homes as winds gust up to 50 mph.The blaze has consumed 75 acres and is 0% contained.The Old Water fire has closed schools and forced residents of about 80 homes to evacuate.A heat advisory is also in effect in Southern California with temperatures expected to reach the 90s from San Diego to Los Angeles.
