The house designed in the historical center of Alcobaça is a record of overlapping times: A small building reconstructed to perpetuate the vernacular common scale, and a wall thoroughly shaped to house the quiet extension.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGOn the existing building a void is created managing the thickness of the peripheral walls. An absence of space is freed collecting luminosity from a skylight that grants a private and protected atmosphere. The compartments appear as internal additions, connected to the exterior through reinterpreted windows in the façades, but proposing an unexpected internal space.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Section 02Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe extension of the house takes the difference between two levels: The street level and the garden that is generated with the river Baça. The form of the new wall defines courtyards that mediate the contemplation to the exterior.

Rodents on the run from derelict sites

first_imgNewsLocal NewsRodents on the run from derelict sitesBy admin – March 1, 2011 939 Advertisement THE sight of rodents scurrying past long-standing derelict sites is terrifying people, according to election candidate Cllr Joe Leddin, responding to a complaint from a young Limerick woman who had such an experience on the Ballinacurra road. It is claimed that rats and rodents are terrifying people, especially our senior citizens who walk in the area of the former Moloney Garage site.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This week, the Limerick Post received a call from a young woman who said she is now terrified to be anywhere near the site.“I was wheeling my child in her buggy and two rats ran across my path – it was obvious they were coming from the site, which attracts lots of illegal dumping – it’s a disgrace that this is being allowed fester so close to where people are living and walking”.Cllr Joe Leddin, who has requested an immediate inspection of a number of the city’s most offensive derelict sites and properties from City Hall’s Planning Department, said that on his election canvass throughout the city he has received numerous complaints from people and the business sector who are living close to derelict sites.“They have outlined to me their concerns with the continued deterioration of these sites. All kind of rubbish is being dumped illegally, and as a result, increases anti-social behaviour.“There are also serious health and safety concerns surrounding the proposed Opera Centre – many of the buildings involved are over 100 years and in a poor physical state”.Pointing out that the issue is of a more serious nature than many people perceive, he also referred to the many unoccupied derelict houses and sites scattered in Hyde Road, Quins Cottages, Janesboro and Prospect, that are causing huge concern for locals.“Urgent action, such as compulsory purchase orders by the city council are now required, and while there may be difficulties pertaining to title deeds with certain houses, the major strategic sites on main artery roads into the city can’t be left unattended – either the owners or the city council must carry out appropriate works to clean and secure these sites”.

Seeing the process – through the drawings and then the paintings – makes you really appreciate Margo Russell’s art,” Drinkard said. “The exhibit is sponsored by KW Plastics and we greatly appreciate their support. Without their dedication to continuing education and the cultural enrichment of our community, we would not have been able to house this exhibit at the Johnson Center.”Drinkard said the “Art of the State” exhibition on the lower level of the Johnson Center is also impressive.“Some of the most innovative Alabama art comes from faculty members at the state’s colleges and universities,” she said. “The Tennessee Valley Museum of Art is highlighting that work in the ‘Art of the State’ traveling exhibition, which celebrates contemporary visual art.”Drinkard said the Tennessee Valley Museum has done a wonderful job capturing the creative talents of the work of the 13 contributing artists.

She will also bring a bluegrass band, The Tennessee Firearms, with her and they will play during the reception. Everyone should really enjoy them.”The “String Notes” exhibition includes about 35 pieces. Some of the pieces are borrowed from collectors and some are recent works.

Benowa Waters mansion is the American dream

first_imgPat McCarthy and his daughters (left to right) Ainsley, 17, Ava, 13, and Lauren, 20, at their family’s dream home in Benowa Waters. Picture: Glenn HampsonCreating a dream home to accommodate a busy family of seven is no easy feat, but the McCarthys managed just that. Their Benowa Waters mansion has a long list of luxury inclusions, such as a 2500-bottle wine cellar and adjoining waterfront tasting room for the adults. And for the kids, the pool and tennis court were a hit. More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa12 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoA tennis court is just one of the luxury inclusions. The family are selling 64-66 Charolais Cres, Benowa Waters, to downsize. Owners Pat and Penelope McCarthy built the lavish property at 64-66 Charolais Cres 14 years ago. “It was our dream home,” Mr McCarthy said. “We had five children ranging from five to 21 at the time and lived in Benowa Waters but were looking for a much bigger home to suit a growing family.“At the house, everyone has their own space to go and chill out, watch TV, play games, play outside, but there are also lots of communal family areas for us all to be together.” MORE NEWS: The secret to building a Gold Coast dream home MORE NEWS: Enchanting Tamborine Mountain cottage ready for next chapter The expressions of interest campaign ends on March 18. Mr McCarthy said tennis lessons had been a Saturday morning ritual, with a coach hosting lessons for the whole neighbourhood on their family’s court. “We also started the Halloween craze in Benowa Waters,” he said. With only two kids left at home, they decided it was now time for the family to downsize and are on the hunt for their next dream home. The expat Americans designed the luxury coastal house to have a Hamptons feel. “We are both from the Hamptons and brought a lot of that feel with us. We wanted the look and feel of the places we grew up,” he said. “It has a beautiful coastal feel and is a modern house for a large family that enjoys the waterfront lifestyle.”center_img The tasting room and wine cellar — wine not?
