The project for the expansion of the S House – a retreat for research and study – is located in Rio de Janeiro. The current headquarters already operates in the two existing buildings on the site: a house of historical importance, built in the mid-twentieth century, and a small chapel designed by the architect Alcides da Rocha Miranda.Save this picture!© Rafael SalimSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Rafael SalimAt the edges of an Environmental Preservation Zone, the project seeks to take advantage of the local landscape to provide views of the surroundings and to organize the new program while preserving the natural vegetation.Save this picture!© Rafael SalimThe program is divided into two main sectors, one of them is destined for housing (dorms, living rooms, library, etc.) and the other one for the supporting activities (pantry, kitchen, laundry, etc.). The program demands privacy, therefore there are no physical nor visual connection between these uses.Save this picture!© Rafael SalimSave this picture!Model 01Save this picture!© Rafael SalimThe topography of the site is unique. Two lines that are perpendicularly connected to each other setup two clear plateaus that are the most favorable locations for buildings, leaving for the expansion the steeper areas – there are places where the slope is 33% steep, with a drop of about 20m. What initially seems to be a problem becomes source for the solution for sectorization and circulation issues: the access of the support sector is made through the lowest level while the one of the housing sector happens through the highest.Save this picture!© Rafael SalimThe introspection inherent in the program and uses are reflected in the proposed object. Despite its large proportions, the expansion remains discreet in the landscape.Save this picture!© Rafael SalimProject gallerySee allShow lessFalafel Booth / Juan Campanini Josefina SpositoSelected ProjectsFoster + Partners Design Modular Residential Towers for ShenzhenArchitecture News Share ArchDaily CopyHouses, Extension•Río de Janeiro, Brazil Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Adobe, Crismetal, Deca, Mekal, Plurigoma, Portobello, Punto, Tarket Fademac, Tintas Coral, Trimble Photographs:  Rafael Salim Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933450/residence-s-biselli-katchborian-arquitetos Clipboard Photographs Lead Architects: Residence S / Biselli Katchborian Arquitetos 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933450/residence-s-biselli-katchborian-arquitetos Clipboard Projectslast_img read more

Smart street lighting could halve energy costs

first_imgLinkedin design concept for the smart streetlamps, which turn on only when needed – image courtesy of © tvilight BVAndrew Carey in [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK could follow the likes of Amsterdam and Copenhagen by installing LED sensor street lighting and reduce the local authority energy bill by up to 50 per cent.The message, issued during the 2015 Open Days in Brussels was given at a series of workshops at the Committee of the Regions buildings in the EU quarter of the Belgian capital.As part of the week-long event where journalists attend meetings with EU policy makers, Open Days allows EU strategies to be brought back to the regions and cities where its implementation will have most effect.Studies have shown that up to three-quarters of the European population live in cities and urban regions and the UN expects this to rise to 80 per cent by 2050.However, local governments, including Limerick’s local authority, have been directed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and become more efficient in their use of resources, in line with the Kyoto Protocol.This December, the UN Climate Change Summit will be held in Paris with the aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the global temperature increase to 2degC above pre-industrial levels.A technical study group found that street lighting is one of the biggest expenses a city has in relation to its energy bills.The smart street lighting is activated by movement detected on sensors. One the movement stops, the lighting dims and in some instances turns off until movement is picked up again by the sensors.The project, which could be partially financed through funding from Brussels, is linked to the EU Smart Cities and Communities Innovation partnership.
