Aldo Beach House transforms a 1940s beach house into a new multi-generational home—doubling the livable area while lightly touching the delicate ecology of the waterfront. Two shifting wings hover over the hillside and beach supported by thin steel columns and pin piles. Located on the eastern shore of Hood Canal near the Bangor submarine base, the new beach house includes the original two-bedroom structure for an expanded program of two new bedrooms, two bathrooms, and flex space. The design consists of three distinct parts: the original footprint, and the two projecting wings: the first a south ground floor addition, and the second an upper-level master suite to the north.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueSolving the Regional Problem of Building on a Fragile Shoreline. The house represents a regional northwest problem of building on a fragile shoreline. “Due to the complex constraints of the shoreline exemption, we kept to the existing footprint, expanding the house only from the existing structure,” says Matt Wittman, Principal at Wittman Estes. “As a result, all new square footage is supported by compact pier foundations on pin piles.” Native plantings and drought tolerant species were brought in to mitigate site disturbance and increase the ecological function of the site.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueSave this picture!© Andrew PogueThe architects wanted the site preservation to extend beyond the footprint and into the materials of the building itself. Local cedar, quintessential to a northwest house, wears naturally with the wet and dry seasons. Stainless steel and concrete provide a maritime accent to the wood materials. Through the use of naturally weathering materials, the life of the building was extended while allowing ease of maintenance for the users.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueSave this picture!© Andrew PogueA Place for Relatives, Neighbors, and Friends. The clients, both grandparents, and retirees wanted a place of retreat and welcome. “Like many northwest families, that meant designing various indoor and outdoor spaces for their children, future grandchildren, neighbors, and friends,” says Wittman. The new wings of the house create a layering of community and privacy through guest bedrooms for friends, a bunk room and play area for kids, and an outdoor kitchen and deck for communal meals with neighbors. Two additions extend out of the original structure to meet this need – shaping shared spaces alongside rooms for reflection and privacy.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueTwo decks seamlessly elongate the use of the adjacent spaces for encouraging late-night conversations next to an outdoor kitchen. The original structure interplays throughout. Reclaimed pine flooring draws the Olympic forest to the interior. The existing brick chimneys blend into this palette, evoking timelessness and strength, representing the unique transformation of the house. The adaptive reuse of the Aldo Beach House sought a careful integration of the familiar with the modern, bringing the old and new together on the shoreline of Hood Canal.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueProject gallerySee allShow lessBrigadeiro Apartament / Nommo ArquitetosSelected Projects2020 Fall SEKISUI HOUSE – KUMA LAB Lecture Series #1 ––Breathing VolumesLecture Share United States Photographs:  Andrew Pogue Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs Aldo Beach House / Wittman Estes CopyAbout this officeWittman EstesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBangorOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on November 27, 2020Cite: “Aldo Beach House / Wittman Estes” 27 Nov 2020.

Guatemala: US ending accord that sent asylum seekers back

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Guatemala says the U.S. government is ending an arrangement that sent asylum-seekers who reached U.S. borders back to the Central American nation to seek protection there instead. The Guatemalan government said in a statement Friday it welcomed the decision to end the accord, known as a safe third country agreement. Only 20 of 939 Hondurans and El Salvadorans who have been turned back from the U.S. and flown to Guatemala decided to seek asylum there. With so many returning to their home countries instead, the policy instituted by former president Donald Trump became known as “deportation with a layover.”last_img read more

Further setback for Kozak

first_img “He had an operation on Wednesday,” he said. “They had to go back into his leg and put a little pin in it. I haven’t spoke to the doctor about the length he will be out but it’s going to be a while. “It’s a setback for him. The doctors are with him so we’ll find out soon (how long he’s out for). “He wasn’t too far away from being back. He was running and doing everything. It’s a blow for him and blow for us. “It’s just not healed the way we thought.” Kozak cost Villa £7million when he signed from Lazio last summer and had scored four goals in 15 games before suffering the injury in training after a collision with defender Ciaran Clark. He was expected to return soon and Lambert admitted the news had affected the 25-year-old Czech Republic international. “It’s a nightmare. I spoke to him about his injury and he felt a bit down which is understandable because he’s worked so hard to get back,” he said. “When he came his goal ratio was very good. He’s a handful. He’s just been unfortunate that he’s suffered that setback.” Captain Ron Vlaar is also out of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League visit of Manchester City with a calf injury, something Lambert attributes to World Cup burn-out after Holland’s run to the semi finals. “Hopefully he will be back after the international break, it’s just a calf injury,” he said. “He’s had it for the last couple of years. He did his right, then his left. I knew it would happen, just never this early. “He looks after himself in the best way he can. It was just fatigue from the World Cup.” Aston Villa striker Libor Kozak has suffered a blow in his recovery from a broken leg after having more surgery. The forward has been out since January and went under the knife on Wednesday after a scan revealed the injury had not healed as well as hoped. Kozak’s spell on the sidelines is likely to be extended by a number of weeks after boss Paul Lambert confirmed the setback. Press Associationlast_img read more
