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.

Banton’s heroics in vain as rain washes out T20

first_img(BBC) – Tom Banton marked his arrival on the international stage with a thrilling 71 off 42 balls before rain washed out England’s first Twenty20 against Pakistan at Emirates Old Trafford.The 22-year-old became the youngest England player to score a T20 half-century as he hit four fours and five sixes.His departure was the first of four wickets to fall for 14 runs, shortly before rain intervened with England 131-6.Play was abandoned at 21:00 BST, although better weather is forecast for the second game of the three-match series at the same ground tomorrow.One of the most devastating limited-overs batsmen on the county circuit, Banton had a solitary fifty to show from his opening nine games for England in one-day and T20 cricket.There was little early on in Manchester to suggest he would buck that trend, put down by Iftikhar Ahmed – a regulation chance at slip – on five and struggling for timing on a two-paced pitch after seeing Jonny Bairstow drill the fifth delivery of the game back to Imad Wasim.That England’s first 50 runs took 49 balls – their slowest start since the last T20 World Cup – betrayed Banton and Dawid Malan’s lack of fluency.The next 50 came off only 19 deliveries, thanks largely to Banton’s brilliance.If three leg-side sixes off leg-spinner Shadab Khan demonstrated his reach and power, the casual ramp over fine leg for six off Haris Rauf, Pakistan’s quickest bowler, was nothing short of astonishing.Having seen Malan stranded mid-pitch and run-out for 23, Banton skied a leading edge to cover as he aimed across the line.Eoin Morgan was lbw on the sweep moments later, Moeen Ali was caught behind attempting to cut Shadab, and Lewis Gregory was stumped advancing to Imad.The impact of England’s slide from 109-2 to 123-6 was such that they will arguably have been the happier of the sides when rain arrived at 19:20hrs.last_img read more
