It’s said that 6 degrees separate each human on earth from another. The Gordons Bay House asks how 6 degrees of separation might negotiate a web of complex associations in order to produce an architecture that performs for a wide group of people, while seamlessly integrating the built form with its context. Set on the hillside overlooking the bay, the design consists of three levels, each level alternatively offset from the boundary by six degrees. The alternating orientation of each floor provides a response to different constraints imposed by the site.

The ground floor alternately angles northwest towards the view of the bay and the Clovelly headland. This also preserves and enhances views from the public lane on the southern side of the building. The first floor scissors again to produce a series of roof terraces and cantilevered overhangs that correspondingly expose and cover the spaces above and below.

Alternating levels all pivot around a dramatic double height gallery stairwell that accommodates the client’s extensive collection of artwork and draws light and air through the centre of the dwelling. Built to last, the house uses off-form concrete slabs and edge beams allowing the structure to cantilever gracefully. Windows and custom designed wall cladding are similarly treated with ellipsoid aluminium louvres that provide protection from the aggressive seaside environment. This palette of materials, as well as the use of new and salvaged timbers, and sandstone all elegantly speak of its setting.

Set atop the large exsting sandstone retaining wall on the street, a generous lawn is surrounded by edible plants and trees. Olives, espaliered citrus, vegetables and herbs help stock the kitchen, and the scraps return to the chickens that roam the garden from their bespoke chook house. The public lane to the south has been dramatically improved with endemic flowering ground covers and bushes.

This house is air conditioning free, the result of a contractual arrangement between architect and client to achieve a design that did not require it. Generous eaves, a considered application of thermal mass and natural ventilation operate to minimise the dwellings ongoing environmental impact. Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderThe apparently simple layering of concrete slabs and aluminium louvres is enriched by irregularities provided by the changing geometry of the levels, the distinctive front door, a steel stair and irregular stonework. These irregularities become the human face of the architecture. It is said that 6 degrees of association separates every human on earth from another.

The site is in  the outskirts of Paphos, with panoramic views – mountains to the north, town of Paphos and  sea to the south–The above parameters played an important role in the design of the house.  Three dimensional elements – simple cubic volumes are creating playful puzzle of the “framed views”.  Interconnection between internal and external spaces brings different pictures of surrounded environment to all the rooms of the house. The juxtaposition of solid mass to large expanses of transparency is transitioned with wooden cladding, which softens strict cubic composition. Save this picture!© Maria EfthymiouThere is a clear vertical distinction between the living and bedroom accommodation. Open plan living room areas are arranged to allow seamless connection to the garden, covered terrace and pool. Panoramic town and sea views area mostly emphasized from the living room. The path through vertical connector – staircase (connecting basement – ground floor – first floor) creates the highest emotional experience – views open to all different sides. As we get into the bedrooms emotional journey through spaces are calm again reflecting the relaxing function.Save this picture!© Maria EfthymiouProject gallerySee allShow lessTube Tank – TRIWA Pop-Up Store / mode:lina architekciArticlesIstanbul Camlica Mosque Second Prize Winning Proposal / SN ArchitectsArticles Share Peter’s House / Vardastudio Architects & Designers Cyprus CopyHouses•Trimithousa, Cyprus “COPY” ArchDaily Architects: Vardastudio Architects & Designers Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/302591/peters-house-vardastudio-architects-designers Clipboardcenter_img 2012 Year:  Houses Peter’s House / Vardastudio Architects & DesignersSave this projectSavePeter’s House / Vardastudio Architects & Designers Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/302591/peters-house-vardastudio-architects-designers Clipboard Save this picture!© Maria Efthymiou+ 17 Share CopyAbout this officeVardastudio Architects & DesignersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesTrimithousaCyprusPublished on December 06, 2012Cite: “Peter’s House / Vardastudio Architects & Designers” 06 Dec 2012.

Unemployment Reports Weekly Decline

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Unemployment Reports Weekly Decline Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Employment HOUSING 2020-06-11 Seth Welborn The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: Employment HOUSING Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago In the week ending June 6, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 1,542,000, a decrease of 355,000 from the previous week’s revised level, according to the Department of Labor. The previous week’s level was revised up by 20,000 from 1,877,000 to 1,897,000. The 4-week moving average was 2,002,000, a decrease of 286,250 from the previous week’s revised average. The previous week’s average was revised up by 4,250 from 2,284,000 to 2,288,250.The U.S. economy also added 2.5 million jobs in May and the unemployment rate declined to 13.3% from the prior report’s 14.7%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The unemployment rates decline in May for adult men to 11.6%, adult women (13.9%), Whites (12.4%), African Americans (16.8%), and Hispanics (17.6%).Construction employment rose by 464,000 in May—gaining back almost half of April’s decline (-995,000). Much of this gain was attributed to specialty trade contractors, with the increase split between the residential and nonresidential components.Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale said the share of works who expect to return to work within six months remains higher than normal, but “that’s one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal report.”“Even workers expecting only a short disruption in income likely cut back on spending and dipped into savings to make ends meet. Unemployment benefits, which are currently more generous than usual, will help, but major purchases such as cars and homes may be delayed for some buyers until they feel like the jobs market is back to normal,” Hale said. “The longer the disruption in the labor market, the longer consumers may have to wait on making major purchases such as cars and homes.”For the week ending May 23, the states and territories with the highest insured unemployment rates were Maine (26.9%), Nevada (24.3%), Michigan (21.7%), Hawaii (20.1%), and Puerto Rico (19.0%). The national figure for the corresponding week was 14.6%. The insured unemployment rate represents the fraction of the unemployment insurance-eligible workforce currently receiving benefits. For the week ending May 30, Florida and Oregon showed the largest increases in continued claims, rising 306,000 and 201,000, respectively, from the prior week, while Pennsylvania and Texas had the largest declines, falling 166,00 and 160,000, respectively, from the prior week. (All state-level data for the week ending May 30 should be considered preliminary estimates due to the way these data are collected)”As with the prior weeks, a few caveats make this week’s data difficult to interpret precisely,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “On one hand, unemployment insurance eligibility rules have been relaxed recently, increasing the number of people who are able to apply. This makes it difficult to estimate the uninsured unemployed share of the workforce. On the other hand, many states reported a significant backlog of unemployment insurance applications due to a lack of processing capacity, indicating that this week’s release may understate the true extent of insured layoffs.” Previous: Redlining Results in 52% Less Home Value for Homeowners Next: Forbearances Decrease for Second Consecutive Week in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News June 11, 2020 1,131 Views center_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Unemployment Reports Weekly Decline Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
