Located near Saveh, 70 km from Tehran-the capital city of Iran-, shams Villa sits on a 6015 square meter land in a village. The client is a journalist who requested a recreational house close to the family farm. The intention was to design a modern building reflecting the Iranian identity. Pursuing the client needs and desires and considering warm and dry climate of the site, Koushk, a Persian traditional summer house, was redefined. Koushk, like pavilion, is a kind of extroverted architecture which is commonly located in a garden with semi- open balconies.Save this picture!© Kaveh Seyed AhmadianRecommended ProductsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesAs a first step, the four natural elements (fire, earth, water, wind), the most dominant characteristics, symbols and attributes of Persian culture and architecture, were considered as our initial concept. Among these elements, water has been considered a natural element that is pure, clean and purgative. So irrigating water on site was used as an architectural element and designed as a ringed pool surrounding the building footprint. In addition to the environmental aspects of the water, it will reflect the building image as well as the day-light in-to the house.Save this picture!© Kaveh Seyed AhmadianFollowing the Koushk design principals, four walls (symbolizing the four natural elements) were used in every corner of a pure cubical structure to form the main enclosure to encompass all the closed and semi-open spaces. The inner spaces set back from the outer envelope for protection from direct exposure to sun.  Furthermore, the facades of the inner spaces were distinguished from the main shelter to emphasize the contrast between solid and void spaces. The natural vistas, on the other hand, led to the creation of an L shape terrace on the second floor, expanding from south side to north, reaching the shell to form a continuous surface.Save this picture!DiagramThe east elevation and the way the entrance of the house is encountered were great important features of our design. The principals of entrance in Iranian traditional buildings were reworded using the two symmetrical walls and columns on each side, while two other elements, curtain and bridge, challenged the symmetry. The upper terrace receded back from the main façade to layer it up.Save this picture!© Kaveh Seyed AhmadianTo protect from cold winds and to reduce glare and overheating, the west side has low height windows functioning also as paths through which natural light- reflected from the smooth water-can enter the house. Save this picture!© Kaveh Seyed AhmadianThe house consists of two stories. The first floor is a social area, including a kitchen, a living room, a guest room with bathroom and a service area, accessed through the rear terrace. At the upper level are the bedrooms with a bathroom and the private living room. The internal void expands to external balconies to provide the spatial different inner views for both interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Kaveh Seyed AhmadianDue to the remote location of the project and considering the limitation in transportation and access to professional executive teams, the local materials and simple details were used.Save this picture!© Kaveh Seyed AhmadianFinally, instead of imitating the traditional forms, simple lines and finishings were implemented in the concept of the building to create a sense of contemporary Iranian architecture.Project gallerySee allShow lessTranslating Smiljan Radić’s Serpentine Pavilion from Fantasy to FabricationArticlesThe Berlage Archive: Elia Zenghelis (2009)Architecture News Share 2013last_img read more

Eastbound Newark Bay-Hudson Extension closed between 14 and 14A for emergency…

first_imgHUDSON COUNTY — The eastbound Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension of the New Jersey Turnpike will be closed to traffic between Interchanges 14 and 14A while repair crews address a structural problem with the bridge deck.The bearings between the bridge deck and a pier at milepost 0.5 of the Extension became overextended, causing the eastbound bridge deck to drop several inches. Repairs crews have begun jacking the structure back into place in order to repair the bearings. It is too soon to determine when the eastbound Extension will reopen, but engineers estimate that the work will take at least 36 hours, which was to keep the Extension closed until at least Thursday evening.The bearings are steel pieces that connect the bridge deck to the pier. They are designed to allow for controlled movement of the bridge deck, such as expansion or contraction due to temperature changes. A contractor working in the area discovered that several bearings on the pier beneath the eastbound roadway at milepost 0.5 had rotated out of position.In addition to the repair work, engineers working for the Turnpike Authority are evaluating similar bearings beneath the Extension to make sure there are no other problems.For real-time traffic conditions in the area, drivers should call 511 from a hands-free mobile device or download the SafeTripNJ smartphone app. Links to live camera views of traffic conditions on the roadway can be found under the Travel Tools tab at the top of this page.last_img read more

Michelle Obama eats 1,700-calorie meal: Is she a hypocrite?

first_img Share Can you preach healthy eating and order a 1,700-calorie lunch at a burger joint? A lot of people are saying ‘no’ because the person in question is the First Lady, a role model, and her primary focus while inhabiting the White House has been to urge the country to eat and live healthier. For the record, she was at the new D.C. location of the popular Shake Shack, and the calories were spent on a hamburger, fries, chocolate shake, and Diet Coke. If it was me, I’d probably ditch the Diet Coke, maybe share the fries, but if that’s what’s going to round out the meal for her, who are we to stop her? I believe that balance is a virtue. Eating salads and sustainable fish everyday leaves a person with a lot of greasy, repressed cravings that I don’t want for myself or my leaders. Enough with all this ‘our candidates and their wives have to be specimens of perfection.’ Our country is overweight, so she’s been sharing a message of healthy eating. But Michelle has admitted her own salty weakness. “Look my favorite food in the whole wide world is French fries,” she has said. Have you gotten a different message from her? Do you think she’s asking us to be more perfect than she is?by Sarah Fuss Share Sharing is caring! 23 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Tweet Food & DiningHealthLifestyle Michelle Obama eats 1,700-calorie meal: Is she a hypocrite? by: – July 13, 2011last_img read more
