Surrounded by the Argentine Delta, implanted in a trapezoidal lot, overlooking a lagoon; Its north orientation, towards one of its sides, generated the inclusion of a light patio with abundant vegetation, which we also use as the entrance. It works as an articulator; as a transition between the street and the access to the house, it is the heart of it and all the circulations turn towards this space.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe west-facing façade has a sliding gate that is hidden when it opens, with the intention of generating a scenographic sensation towards pedestrian access through a path that changes its forms. The idea is to go through different sensations: first, we can appreciate the music room, with different instruments used by the family, which also eventually opens onto a multipurpose space, generating flexibility of environments. We continue walking and we find the central patio with abundant vegetation and the entrance door that is hierarchized with a wooden paneling that manages to make it go unnoticed.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralIf we keep moving forward, we can cross below a floating volume, which is the clients’ home office space, which in turn has a balcony to the double-height of the living room. This semi-covered frames the landscape and directs us towards the pool where the water mirror merges with the lagoon. From there we can enter the gallery directly, without going through the house.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralOn the south side, all services and supports are located.The materialization of the house is of exposed concrete of boards combined with phenolic; It has a double wall, rpt dvh aluminum openings and travertine floors.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe staircase is one of the main elements, it is located in the entrance hall and in contrast to the exposed concrete that has its natural imprint, it unfolds in a light and warm way. They are loose steps, in-flight, and by means of an embedment system they give the sensation of being in flight.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralProject gallerySee allShow lessL’Orée des sens Apartments / Yves Ballot et Nathalie FranckSelected ProjectsThailand Pavilion / BambuBuildSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Belén de Escobar, Argentina Sakura House / Estudio PKa “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

More time needed for tourists to storm the castle

first_imgLimerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live NewsMore time needed for tourists to storm the castleBy Alan Jacques – September 25, 2016 866 Print Advertisement AN extension to the opening season for Desmond Castle in Newcastle West is being sought from the Office of Public Works (OPW) to increase tourist activity in West Limerick.Local Sinn Féin councillor Seamus Browne, who called on Limerick City and County Council to request that the season runs from April to September instead of from May to August, said that this would have the potential to increase tourist revenues for Newcastle West and the West Limerick area.“This is why I have brought a motion to Limerick City and County Council. I think a request that has the full support of our Council should carry a lot of weight with the OPW Heritage Division which ultimately has the power to decide on this issue.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Visitor numbers have been increasing in recent times and the fact that it has free entry is a further bonus.”Cllr Browne has also called for the establishment of a Tourist Forum for County Limerick.“A number of other counties already have a Tourist Forum where all stakeholders work collectively to ensure tourist potential is maximised. Limerick County badly needs a Forum established. The County towns of Limerick need jobs and one source is tourism. But it won’t happen unless all stakeholders come together and build a plan to grow our visitor numbers,” he concluded.In response, a spokesman for the OPW said that visitor numbers to Desmond Hall had steadily increased over recent years from 4,290 in 2012 to 9,415 in 2013, 11,150 in 2014 and 11,362 in 2015. This is due in no small part to the dedicated efforts of OPW guide staff at Desmond Hall and also to the OPW’s commitment to promote and market less-visited heritage sites where it is considered an increase in visitor numbers is sustainable without damaging the heritage fabric of the site.”“The OPW also facilitates local history societies, school tours and active retirement groups wishing to visit the site by prior appointment during the “closed” season.“Unfortunately it is not possible to extend the season at Desmond Hall due to resource constraints. In this instance the ‘Friends of Irish Heritage’ initiative may be of interest. This initiative was introduced to invite interested local groups to join with the OPW to present sites such as Desmond Hall to out-of-season visitors on a volunteer basis,” the spokesman Alan [email protected] Email Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Previous articleDelay in Limerick schools patronage process ‘unacceptable’Next articleLimerick to get 100 new jobs with WP Engine Alan Jacques RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Twitter Linkedin Facebook WhatsApp Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival TAGSCllr Seamus BrowneDesmond HalllimerickLimerick City and County CouncilNewcastle WestOffice of Public Works (OPW)Sinn Fein WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more
