Between the stones and the water. A lot located in the mountain range of Los Altos, treading geographically within the city of San Bernardino, with romantic sunset views over the famous Ypacaraí lake, which has become the historical scene of the summer life of many Paraguayans, is the site where we were summoned to project a weekend house to be enjoyed by families and friends. With a rugged topography and rocky terrain, the picturesque and steep location suggested the idea of implementing the program in such a way to generate a stepped succession of terraces that allow users to enjoy the landscape from different perspectives and times of the day.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezWithin this logic and according to the hierarchical order of the environments of a home, we decided to arrange the spaces in three superimposed and dislocated volumes. The garage and the service areas were located in the lowest sector of the lot, serving as an expansion of the volume of the social area, which perches open to the landscape and integrates themes related to leisure. The dining room and gourmet cuisine are placed in a single ludic gallery on the third level, while the volume of the private spaces is composed by three en-suite bedrooms with a linear balcony that dampens the incidence of the afternoon sun. As the upper enclosure and thermal mattress of the rooms, a final panoramic terrace was raised to further allow the enjoyment of the exuberance of the green and the portrait of the lake under the setting sun.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezRegarding the construction work, the materiality has a key role. Initially intended to be projected in ceramic bricks on a reinforced concrete structure, the Peak House experienced a ‘before and after’ during the excavation process. An internal regulation of the condominium limits the buildable height regarding the front of each lot, in order to guarantee the views to those lots located successively behind. This complex and challenging task was responsible for the discovery of the charm of this hill while removing the quarry. A large number of stones that, far from being considered rubble to be removed, became our allied raw material for any enclosure that was not made of glass and any idea that could be executed with hammers, chisels, levers and a little ingenuity. In this way, we managed to optimize the use of the stone of the site and thus compensate for energy expenses and cost overruns for the purchase and transfer of foreign materials. Finally, the project gained its own identity by being harmoniously merged with the site and the landscape in turn to functionally meet the requirements of an interesting weekend house.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezProject gallerySee allShow lessMachelen Workshop & Office Spaces / WE-S architectenSelected Projects6 Social Housing Units / Atelier 56SSelected Projects Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932507/peak-house-omcm-arquitectos Clipboard Peak House / OMCM arquitectosSave this projectSavePeak House / OMCM arquitectos Save this picture!© Leonardo Méndez+ 29Curated by Clara Ott Share “COPY” Architects: OMCM arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project 2019center_img Year:  Area:  513 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932507/peak-house-omcm-arquitectos Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeOMCM arquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan BernardinoOn FacebookParaguayPublished on January 29, 2020Cite: “Peak House / OMCM arquitectos” [Casa Peak / OMCM arquitectos] 29 Jan 2020.

RSF fears more censorship after state TV boss fired in Guinea-Bissau

first_imgNews August 20, 2019 RSF fears more censorship after state TV boss fired in Guinea-Bissau News January 29, 2021 Find out more RSF_en @RSF_Inter Guinea BissauAfrica Media independence Environment The social communication ministry said the director-general was replaced in order to impart a “new dynamic” to the public broadcaster and to end an internal climate that was prejudicial to its work. “A climate of a lack of confidence had taken hold” within its management, the statement said. Organisation Help by sharing this information Guinea Bissau: attack by gunmen silences opposition radio station in Bissau TGB’s employees have been complaining about political interference in the broadcaster’s news coverage for months. The state-owned media often censor news stories that embarrass the authorities, while editors and managers are often replaced. Guinea BissauAfrica Media independence Environment “As a result, pluralistic news coverage will probably suffer even more. In the run-up to the 24 November presidential elections, public television in Guinea-Bissau should instead be opening up to all to political currents and should be reflecting the full diversity of opinions.” Newscenter_img News Receive email alerts to go further Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent Guinea-Bissau: reporter beaten by policeman while covering Covid protest Follow the news on Guinea Bissau Guinea-Bissau is ranked 89th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. The director-general of Guinea-Bissau’s state-owned national TV broadcaster, TGB, has been suspended in a move that Reporters Without Borders (RSF) fears is probably designed to reinforce censorship just before a presidential election planned in November. Daniel Miguel de Barros’ suspension was announced in a statement by the social communication ministry yesterday. Pending cabinet approval for the decision, Zain Pereira de Jesus, a relative of former Prime Minister Domingos Simões Pereira, has been provisionally named as his successor. All members of TGB’s board of governors have also been suspended until further notice. “This dismissal seems designed to step up censorship of the state-owned media at a time when TGB’s journalists have been criticizing censorship,” said Assane Diagne, the head of RSF’s West Africa office.
