Brief Situated on a cliff side overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Villa Sow in Dakar was completed in 2011, with SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects) as the Architects and ANTONI ASSOCIATES doing the Interior Decor. The house was designed for a Senegalese businessman and his young family. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTASite Built on the site of an old World War Two bunker and on the edge of a cliff, Villa Sow is the result of a careful analysis of the sites parameters and opportunities. Part of the old bunker has been retained and a portion of it now houses an underground cinema that opens up into a water courtyard in the entrance of the house, and is connected back to the house via a timber panelled walkway towards a spiral staircase that runs from the lower ground to the first floor level of the villa. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTA‘Whilst the cliff side site presented an extraordinary opportunity for a house on the edge of Dakar’s CBD the slowly eroding nature of the cliff face required a very carefully considered structural solution.’ says Greg Truen, resulting in a building design that seemed to float off the cliff’s edge. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAApproach Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAThe ground floor of the house is designed to facilitate convenient entertainment both indoor s and outdoors and is furnished to enjoy panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the pool terrace area. With articulated terraces, bequeathing each room an unfettered view of the sea, it’s no wonder that the main reference point of the house is the hallway from the study area to the kitchen, with all rooms extending from it. The orientation of the rooms in the house is all based on the best ocean views. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAThe study / office sits in a separate block joined to the main house by a hallway. Under the study/office sits a separate fully contained guest room, sitting on the very edge of the cliff, alongside which sits a private gym and reflecting pond. The main house has a lounge with a double volume space, a top of the range kitchen, barbecue terrace and pool terrace, as well as a gaming/family room. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAA main feature in the house is the spiral staircase, clad in stainless steel, and the treads made of white granite. To add to the grandeur of this architectural element, there are 20mm in diameter stainless steel rods running from the first floor handrail to the lower ground floor, thus making the stairwell look like a sculptural steel tube. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAThe first floor houses the children and master bedroom. Clerestories and aluminium screens, coax illumination alongside the carefully framed north eastern views. A skylight above the stairwell and floor to ceiling glazing in the lounges add to the sense of transparency. The master suite opens up into a terrace with views of the ocean in the south western direction, and a private garden with an outdoor shower in the north eastern direction. The result is a cleaver and sophisticated hierarchy of spaces, each room situated to take full advantage of indoor-outdoor living.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessAdobe for Women / blaanc borderless architecture and CaeiroCapursoArticlesVideo: The Race to ZeroArticles Share Dakar Sow House / SAOTA Senegal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/151795/dakar-sow-house-soata Clipboard Year:  CopyHouses•Senegal Houseslast_img read more

Wimbledon 2017: Rafael Nadal cruises into fourth round

first_imgRafael Nadal is on his way to the fourth round at Wimbledon, and he’s three matches away from taking over as the No. 1 player in the world.Nadal beat Karen Khachanov of Russia 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (3) Friday on Centre Court. If he reaches the final at the All England Club, the two-time Wimbledon champion will take over from Andy Murray as the top-ranked player in the world.”First set and a half, I think, was very, very well. Very happy (with) the way that I played,” Nadal said in a television interview after walking off court. “Then it was a little bit tougher. I think I stopped a little bit with the legs and he started to hit stronger, but he’s still a tough opponent and it’s impossible to win easy.”Nadal was playing in front of several sports stars seated in the Royal Box. One of them was Sergio Garcia, the Spanish golfer who was wearing his green Masters jacket.”He’s having an amazing season, especially with that victory, amazing victory in the Masters,” Nadal said. “So, just great to see him and thanks for coming.”Nadal is having a pretty good season, too. He reached the Australian Open final, losing to Roger Federer, and won the French Open. The title at Roland Garros was his 10th at the clay-court major.On Monday, Nadal will face Gilles Muller in the fourth round. Muller beat Nadal at the All England Club in 2005, but the Spaniard got one back in 2011. That was the last time Nadal got past the fourth round at Wimbledon, reaching the final but losing to Novak Djokovic.advertisement”He’s a specialist on grass,” Nadal said of Muller. “Probably his best surface, without a doubt.”Murray was next on Centre Court against Fabio Fognini.Earlier Friday, Victoria Azarenka extended her Grand Slam comeback into the second week.The former No. 1 from Belarus, who gave birth to her first child in December, advanced to the fourth round by beating Heather Watson 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 on Centre Court.Azarenka also lost the first set in her opening match, but that was only her third match since her return. Friday’s match was her fifth.”This is the matches that you’re looking for,” Azarenka said, “try to find a way when not everything goes great.”The two-time Grand Slam champion will next face Simona Halep on Monday in the fourth round. The second-seeded Romanian beat Peng Shuai 6-4, 7-6 (7).Fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina, sixth-seeded Johanna Konta, 21st-seeded Caroline Garcia and 27th-seeded Ana Konjuh also reached the fourth round.For the men, ninth-seeded Kei Nishikori was eliminated. The 2014 U.S. Open finalist lost to Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-3.”I couldn’t maintain my level high enough,” Nishikori said. “He served well every set. Was really tough time (on) my return game.”Marin Cilic, the man who beat Nishikori in that U.S. Open final, advanced to the third round by beating Steve Johnson 6-4, 7-6 (3), 6-4. The seventh-seeded Croat will next face Bautista Agut on Monday.last_img read more

Jeter HR, But Rays Beat Yanks, 3-2

first_imgNEW YORK — Derek Jeter turned on R.A. Dickey’s fastball, sent it deep into the left-field seats and circled the bases at Yankee Stadium for the first time in 14 months.With his usual flair, Jeter began his final homestand in dramatic fashion.Jeter’s solo homer gave the Yankees a two-run lead in a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sept. 18, a game the Yankees won when first baseman Adam Lind let Chase Headley’s ninth-inning grounder bounce through his legs for a game-ending error.With virtually no chance of reaching the playoffs, Jeter has just seven home games left in his 20-year big league career.“Obviously this year up until this point hasn’t turned out how I’d like to, but you’ve got to keep fighting. You’ve got to keep battling,” Jeter said.“It’s another game. I’m trying not to think about it being the last homestand. We still have a week left. We’re trying to win games, and I’m going to go out there and play hard like I’ve always done my entire career until we’re out of games.”Dickey stretched his scoreless streak against the Yankees to 19 innings before Stephen Drew’s RBI double in the fifth. Jeter sent an 82 mph pitch about 10 rows deep for his 150th Yankee Stadium home run, including 12 in the postseason.New York’s 40-year-old captain ended a 158 at-bat homerless streak with the sixth-inning drive, just the fourth home run of the season and his first at home since July 28 last year against Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore.Jeter smiled widely as he circled the bases and exchanged high-fives with teammates when he reached the dugout. Given a standing ovation by adoring fans, Jeter didn’t come out for a curtain call because he didn’t want to interrupt Brian McCann’s at-bat.“I’m sure he’s trying to soak this up as much as he can,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s really difficult to take your uniform off. When you’re used to doing something for such a long time, it’s difficult. He understands what’s coming. It’s a big change of life for him, but he loves to play so much that I’m sure he’s going to enjoy it as much as he can.”Jeter’s average had dipped below .250 during an 0-for-28 slide — the second-longest of his career — before he singled at the Rays on Sept. 17.Jeter beat out an infield single in the first on a grounder shortstop Jose Reyes double-clutched, and had his first multihit game since Aug. 26. He was robbed of a hit in the fourth by left fielder Kevin Pilar, who made a diving backhand catch.New York (78-74) moved ahead of Toronto (77-75) for sole possession of second place in the AL East. The Blue Jays started the season 38-24 and led the AL East by six games before play on June 7 but have gone 39-51 since, losing five in a row.“It’s disappointing for everybody,” Dickey said. “We’ve been a streaky team all year, both bad and good, and right now we’re in the middle of a bad streak.”While the Yankees closed within five games of Oakland for the AL’s second wild card with 10 games remaining, Fangraphs.com calculates they have just a 0.3 percent of making the playoffs.” I can’t worry about what I’ve done up until this point. I’m just trying to have one last homestand here,” Jeter said. “Hopefully, we have a few good games left in us.”Reyes singled with two outs in the eighth and Jose Bautista tied the score when he homered off Shawn Kelley on an 0-2 pitch, slamming his bat as he neared first base. Bautista homered in his fourth straight game against the Yankees and has hit seven of his 33 homers this year against New York.David Robertson (3-6) came in and pitched a perfect ninth, and Chris Young singled off Aaron Sanchez (2-2) leading off the bottom half. Pinch-runner Antoan Richardson stole second, Brett Gardner sacrificed him to third on a 3-2 pitch and, with the infield in, Headley hit a two-hopper that went under Lind’s glove and through his legs. Richardson, who had held up, trotted home.“It’s nice to catch a break,” Headley said.Leaning against the dugout railing, Jeter raised both arms in triumph. “I don’t know how many extra-inning games I’ve got left in me,” he said, ‘so I’m happy we won.”(RONALD BLUM, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
