The house is situated on the South coast of Lake Balaton, the biggest lake of Central Europe. The lakeside is almost completely occupied by holiday houses. There are no more or not too many free plots in the most popular areas. The plot size and the neighborhood is disappointing even if you are lucky enough to find one. Lake Balaton used to be the only possibility for hungarians to have a holiday on the waterside. Almost every family built a small house or just a bungalow in one of the holiday cities of the lake. People didn’t have too much money for construction and the result was usually a „home made” solution. Furniture, houses, streets became very eclectic.

The above mentioned free plots are expensive and rare today. Our Owner of the plot has been very committed building a high quality modern villa for summer use. We decided to blur the boundaries of outside and inside spaces at the ground level, as the plot is small like all plots in this area. The garden became part of the ground floor space.

The living room and the terrace can be opened together with sliding doors, duplicating the living room size. The sliding doors are facing the pool from the other side, connecting the water surface directly to the living area inside. The ground floor is totally transparent. The back wall is made from exposed concrete separating the close neighbor. First floor is the family zone. The 4 bedroom and the 2 bathroom is located in a symmetrical layout. These bedrooms are connected by the gallery, opening to a two story high space above the dining room. Save this picture!© Zsolt BatárThis house has a lot of custom-designed elements. The exterior wood-panel covers and the suspended ceiling continuing in the interior coverings, the in-built doors and wardrobes becoming part of the wood panel covered wall. The custom-made fireplace has been engineered without prefabricated elements. Even the sliding shutters and the first store’s fix shading blades were designed exclusively for the project. The house responds to the sustainable and environmental friendly questions with the solar-panel heated swimming pool, the special spaces and the high insulated structures.Save this picture!© Zsolt BatárProject gallerySee allShow lessEuropan 11 – Leeuwarden Housing Proposal / OODA + OOIIOArticlesThe Polonsky Academy of Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences / Chy…Articles Share Houses Summer Villa at Lake Balaton / FBI Studio architectsSave this projectSaveSummer Villa at Lake Balaton / FBI Studio architects Architects: FBI Studio architects Photographs CopyHouses•Hungary CopyAbout this officeFBI Studio architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesHungaryPublished on December 23, 2011Cite: “Summer Villa at Lake Balaton / FBI Studio architects” 23 Dec 2011.

One of the main goals for this project was to provide much needed housing sized for families in the heart of the city. Located steps from the Shaw Metro, the site is tapered, with one short side facing the street and one long side bounded by a public alley. The architect determined that increasing the density would make the most of the downtown location and the site. Working closely with city officials, the site was rezoned to replace four dilapidated townhouses with a 16-unit apartment building.Save this picture!© Alan KarchmerThe four-story LEED Certified building features a green roof, a courtyard and a linear garden. The building gently steps up in scale from the lower two and three story residences to the taller, denser intersection of 7th Street and Rhode Island Avenue. The garden creates a buffer for the west facing units while also transforming the alley into a safe and pleasant walking path.Save this picture!© Alan KarchmerThe bold exterior colors reflect the vibrant culture of the neighborhood and the long west façade engages the street and speaks fondly to the Watha T. Daniel-Shaw Library. Combining creativity with cues from the surrounding context resulted in a new model for city housing.

This is a dwelling in Shizuoka Prefecture. The site has a 4-meter wide road to its east and is in an area blessed with nature and old rice fields. It is spaciously elongated from east to west. Our layout plan was launched by planting a plum tree on the west of the site.Save this picture!© Koji FujiiThe house is designed with the second floor as the main “living space”. The first floor is comprised of bedrooms and other private areas, while the second floor is visually one large open room, serving as a living and dining space for the family to get together. By arranging three skip-floors and an inner courtyard surrounded by glass walls, we created natural zoning between the living, dining and kitchen areas. This enables the family to feel each other’s presence while allowing the freedom for individuals to pursue their own activities. The inner courtyard gives a gentle partitioning to the house.Save this picture!PlanThe arrangement of the windows allows effective ventilation and lighting to produce comfortable living conditions. They also serve to create visual rhythm. We especially valued the expressions of light from both inside and outside the house. “Daylight flowing in from outside” and “interior lighting spilling out into the night” each fulfills their respective roles.Save this picture!© Koji FujiiThe natural light coming into the rooms offers inhabitants a healthy and comfortable life. At night, interior lighting adds colors to the unwinding time within while giving an atmospheric expression to the outside. This consideration of “efficacy of natural outdoor light and interior lighting” was an important factor to this house.Save this picture!© Koji FujiiAnother feature of the house is the wide open area to its west. We can observe the relocated plum tree from here. A plum tree has a long life-span, is a representational spring-flowering tree of Japan, and is rich in expression from its fall colors to defoliation in winter. Along with the family of this house, it will weave through the cycle of atmospheric seasons over the course of time.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessDaniel Libeskind to Design Physics Building at Durham UniversityArchitecture News’Sa(ndy)licornia’: MOMA PS1 Rockaway Call for Ideas Winning Proposal / Daniel J WilsonUnbuilt Project Share 2012 RHYTHM and Plum Tree / Keisuke Kawaguchi + K2-Design CopyAbout this officeKeisuke Kawaguchi+K2-DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMinami-AlpsHousesJapanPublished on July 15, 2013Cite: “RHYTHM and Plum Tree / Keisuke Kawaguchi + K2-Design” 15 Jul 2013.

The “White House“ is part of an architectural ensemble of two residential buildings, located in the “Waldvillenviertel“, a popular suburban district in the city of Mainz. Besides the admissible building density, a sloped roof shape was one of the building requirements on the plot. The layout of the house enables a pleasant usage of the garden and takes care of the existing vegetation with its oaks and pine-trees and regards the existing site topography.Save this picture!© David SchreyerSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© David SchreyerThe White House contains two separate dwelling units, one is used as an architecture office and hideout for the clients on the weekend. Clearly divided to an open plan area and a buffer zone, containing technical, sanitary and storage space, the inner organization of the building offers a generous space for cooking, eating and living on the ground floor. The maximized glazing connects the living space to the garden visually.Save this picture!© David SchreyerSave this picture!© David SchreyerIn contrast to the dense upper floor with individual rooms, the attic story is designed as a generous space, light-flooded with roof windows. The extraordinary glazing stages the introverted roof patio. Here, you can relax among the treetops of the oaks. The asymmetrical position of the ridge reflects the inner organization with the stretched dividing wall. The architects decided to cover the roof with white roofing tiles and blend in the color of the facade to gain a monolithic appearance of the house as much as possible. Load-bearing walls were constructed with insulating bricks.Save this picture!© David SchreyerSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© David SchreyerThe window frames, the parquet floor, and the terraces are made of oak. The construction details were developed as a kind of optimized standard details with regard to the desired monolithic appearance. A fuel cell ensures a high energetic standard of the house. Embedded into a green environment the intended tension between the black and the white house represents the community, paradoxical achieved by a strong visual contrast.

IAC youth activists join Pride in Buffalo, N.Y., June 2.Photo: Paul MorganBuffalo, N.Y. — Youth with the International Action Center carried banners and signs in the Buffalo Pride Parade on June 2. The organization raised a variety of issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people.Included was support for Pvt. B. Manning. One contingent member had protested the day before, demanding freedom for Manning at Fort Meade, Md., in advance of Manning’s trial, which began there on June 3. He carried the same sign at both events.The IAC also demanded freedom for CeCe McDonald, a young African-American transwoman in Minnesota who was sent to prison for three years for self-defense in a violent anti-trans attack.IAC organizers reported “a tremendous reception from the crowd” to the contingent’s demands and slogans, especially those emphasizing fighting back against anti-trans violence.As Pride becomes increasingly watered down and depoliticized by corporate sponsorship, this contingent brought back a radical edge to Buffalo Pride.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

These cold-blooded murders could make it impossible for the authorities to successfully conclude the trial and could dash any hope of justice in this case.“Babar’s tragic murder could now go unpunished,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Sindh provincial government is directly responsible for protecting witnesses and last year the Sindh high court said security personnel should be assigned to protect the witnesses and the lawyers handling the case. “But for nearly two years, the provincial government did nothing to protect the six witnesses who had agreed to describe what they saw on the day of the murder, and we therefore call for Sindh chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah’s immediate resignation.“We also call for a renewed effort to shed light on Babar’s death and render justice in this case. The fact that the witnesses were eliminated while the main suspects were in preventive detention suggests that those behind Babar’s murder are still at large. Everything must be done to ensure that this street ‘justice’ by force of arms is brought to an end.”A total of 23 people witnessed Babar’s murder but only six – the six who were eliminated one by one in the course of the past 22 months ¬– agreed to testify to Karachi’s Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC). The others refused, mainly for security reasons.The last surviving witness was Haider Ali, also known as Saleem, who had already identified four of the five suspects before a magistrate. On 11 November, two days before he was due to testify to the ATC, two men went to his home. His wife opened the door and they immediately shot him twice in the head.A Karachi-based TV reporter, Babar, 29, was gunned down on the evening of 13 January, a few hours after covering a police investigation in Pehlawan Goth, a district with a high level of violence in the eastern part of the city.Pakistan was the world’s deadliest country for the media for the second year running in 2011, with a total of 10 journalists killed. Eight journalists have been killed since the start of 2012.In the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Pakistan was ranked 151st out of 179 countries.Credits: ASIF HASSAN / AFP PakistanAsia – Pacific Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire April 21, 2021 Find out more RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Pakistan
