Located in Leblon, Rio de Janeiro, this house was designed for a young couple with two children. It’s a compact housing volume located in a site surrounded by buildings in a narrow street. The transition between the urban environment to the interior space of a residence is articulated by the frontal façade through a succession of layers that make up a landscape in movement.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiAn extensive program of 450 sqm was distributed in a 12x12m lot along three floors and a rooftop. The steel structure and the waffle slab have allowed a free floor plan and an unobstructed façade without any intermediate structural elements. The main stairs and elevator were located along the side structural wall creating generous internal spaces for the children bedrooms in the ground level, the living room in the first floor and the master bedroom in the second.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiOn the ground level, wood vertical louvers protect the main entrance and the two bedrooms on this floor. On the second and third floors, the spaces shaped by mandatory setbacks are lined with dense vegetation all along the street facade, bringing privacy for the main living room and the master bedroom.External to the façade garden, horizontal metal blinds provide further privacy and light control. When open, this garden becomes part of the street landscape and creates an interesting dialogue between the interior and exterior of the house.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiProject gallerySee allShow lessAll the Buildings in Sydney Drawn by HandArchitecture NewsPatrik Schumacher Actually Makes a Good PointArticles Share CopyHouses•Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 2013 Area: 550 m² Area: 550 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBernardes ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRio de JaneiroBrazilPublished on April 17, 2015Cite: “Casa 12×12 / Bernardes Arquitetura” 17 Apr 2015.

Situated on a corner lot adjacent to Los Angeles’ Silver Lake Reservoir and Meadow, with views of the water, the surrounding hills, and the Griffith Park Observatory, the design balances the privacy of the family with their desire to fully integrate nature within the life of their home.Save this picture!© Brian Thomas JonesThe organizational strategy consists of a circulation spine connecting a series of program pavilions distributed across the site. The placement of these pavilions creates varying scales of gardens allowing landscape elements to significantly infiltrate the home’s interior. Multiple distinct views, overlays of interior rooms and exterior gardens, exist from all moments within the partially subterranean terraced interior.Save this picture!© Brian Thomas JonesSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Brian Thomas JonesThe ground floor places an emphasis on establishing a connection and access into the gardens. The primary and centrally located garden is wrapped by all rooms and serves as an exterior living space. The additional two smaller gardens offer glimpses of nature and provide a diffused light to enter the interiors. The open floor plan penetrated by the multiple gardens presents an evolving connection to the site.Save this picture!© Brian Thomas JonesWhile the first floor focuses inwards, the second floor utilizes an inverse strategy by turning outwards to the more distant vistas of the site. Elevated above the street, carefully placed apertures are oriented in response to micro and macro site conditions. Windows in bedrooms are focused on lake, meadow, hills, and observatory views, while also looking into and across the gardens.Save this picture!© Brian Thomas JonesThe pavilions are clad in a Shou Sugi Ban charred cypress wood and the circulation spine is finished in smooth exterior plaster. Rift-sawn oak floors and cabinets, dark bronze aluminum windows and interior railings, cement tile, and plaster are the primary interior materials. The gardens and surrounding landscape are planted with a variety of native plants and trees that receive a majority of their irrigation through rainwater catch basins located on site. Due to the integration of the gardens and the numerous operable window systems around the perimeter of the home, passive heating and cooling is very effective throughout the year.Save this picture!© Brian Thomas JonesProject gallerySee allShow lessMER Apartment / Jacobsen ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsArmazem Cowork / oitooSelected Projects Share “COPY” Projects Area: 4000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Brian Thomas Jones+ 33Curated by Paula Pintos Share Year: Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952613/garden-house-anx-aaron-neubert-architects Clipboard Garden House / ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects United States Photographs 2019 “COPY” CopyHouses, Landscape•Los Angeles, United States Architects: ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects Area Area of this architecture project Photographs: Brian Thomas Jones Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Garden House / ANX / Aaron Neubert ArchitectsSave this projectSaveGarden House / ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects CopyAbout this officeANX / Aaron Neubert ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLandscapeLos AngelesOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on January 02, 2021Cite: “Garden House / ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects” 02 Jan 2021.

With the environment now recognized as a major challenge for humankind, Reporters Without Borders believes that particular attention should be paid to the journalists who take greats risk to investigate sensitive, environment-related subjects.The report highlights a steady deterioration in the situation for environmental reporters, who are increasingly exposed to many kinds of pressure, threats and violence.“The violence against these women and men who investigate in the field, often alone, has reached an unprecedented level in 2015,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “In the COP 21 era, we need to realize that the highly sensitive nature of this subject only too often causes grave problems for those trying to shed light on pollution and other forms of environmental degradation. Their meticulous but dangerous work of gathering and disseminating information is nonetheless vital if we are to achieve the badly needed increase in awareness of the dangers threatening our planet.”Ten environmental journalists have been murdered since 2010, according to the tally kept by Reporters Without Borders. In the past five years, almost all (90 percent) of these murders have been in South Asia (India) and Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Philippines and Indonesia). Two Indian reporters, Jagendra Singh and Sandeep Kothari, were killed in 2015.Some journalists are threatened, attacked or jailed because of their reporting. At least six Peruvian journalists reported being harassed and roughed up in the spring of 2015. In Uzbekistan, freelance journalist Solidzhon Abdurakhmanov has languished in prison for the past seven years. All of these journalists investigated sensitive environmental subjects such as illegal logging, mining or pollution.Some governments resort to censorship whenever they are blamed for environmental problems. When “Under The Dome,” an online documentary about air pollution in Beijing, went viral in March, the Chinese Communist Party quickly had it removed from websites. In Ecuador, draconian legislation prevents journalists from covering oil drilling in the Yasuni National Park, where the biological diversity is internationally recognized. In Canada, the government gagged federal scientists to prevent them talking to journalists about the drawbacks of extracting oil from tar sands.Some environmental journalists report receiving friendly approaches from companies that are involved in projects likely to endanger the environment and resort to anything to help improve their image. Reporters in Democratic Republic of Congo said they were bribed by a British company with a concession to explore for oil in Virunga National Park that wanted to buy their silence. Canadian reporter Stephen Leahy was offered money by a Canadian mining company to stop investigating its activities.In response to all these obstacles, more and more environmental journalists are banding together in associations that aim above all to improve the quality of their reporting but also give them the opportunity to collaborate and to be better equipped and protected when they venture into the field.

Economists surveyed by Bloomberg anticipated a consensus forecast of 150,000 new jobs.The unemployment rate edged up to 6.7 percent from January’s five-year low of 6.6 percent.While more promising than December and January—which showed upwardly revised payroll growth of 84,000 and 129,000, respectively—February’s numbers still fell well short of 2013’s average monthly growth of 194,000.Also putting a damper on February’s payroll gain was the number Americans unemployed for 27 weeks or more, which was up by 203,000 to 3.8 million, accounting for 37 percent of the unemployed population.With its acknowledgement that severe weather may have impacted data for last month, the Labor Department added more fuel to the ongoing debate as to whether the country is in an actual slump or just feeling the effects of a harsh winter.Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist for macroeconomic research firm Capital Economics, said the latest stats indicate a brighter spring to come.“Overall, if the economy managed to generate 175,000 new jobs in a month when the weather was so severe, once the weather returns to seasonal norms payrolls employment growth is likely to accelerate further,” he said.Dales also said that the pickup in hiring “pretty much guarantees that the Fed will taper its asset purchases further at the mid-March meeting”—a topic that’s attracted much speculation since the recent slowdown started.Kathy Bostjancic, director of macroeconomic analysis for the Conference Board, agreed that despite lukewarm reports to start the year, “many of the underlying fundamentals of the economy have continued to improve.”“Catch up from weather-delayed plans could push job gains over 200,000 per month. And more jobs mean more paychecks, lifting consumer confidence and sending consumers out shopping once the weather improves,” she said. “In sum, we look for a spring thaw to warm up the economic readings, including most notably employment and housing indicators.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Job Growth Labor Department Unemployment 2014-03-07 Tory Barringer Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Labor Department: Unemployment up to 6.7% in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago
Home / Daily Dose / Treasury Official Says Administration is ‘Ready, Willing, and Able’ to Talk Housing Finance Reform Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Conservatorship Dr. Michael Stegman FHFA Housing Finance Reform U.S. Treasury 2015-03-02 Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Treasury Official Says Administration is ‘Ready, Willing, and Able’ to Talk Housing Finance Reform Speaking at the National Council of State Housing Agencies Legislative Conference on Monday, the Department of U.S. Department of Treasury Counselor to the Secretary for Housing Finance Policy Dr. Michael Stegman said that the Obama Administration is “ready, willing, and able” to talk housing finance reform, which has been a hot-button topic in recent months as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac remain in conservatorship of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.”The Administration remains ready, willing, and able to work in good faith with members of both parties to complete this important but unfinished piece of financial reform,” Stegman said. “As memories of the financial crisis fade, we cannot become complacent. The best time to act is when the housing market is well along the path to recovery and credit markets are normalizing, not on the precipice of a new economic shock when there is little time to be thoughtful.”While Stegman’s remarks on the subject of housing finance reform may seem optimistic, many mortgage indusrtry professionals are not convinced. On the same morning that Stegman delivered his speech at the NCSHA’s conference, the Collingwood Group and the Five Star Institute released their March 2015 Mortgage Industry Outlook report containing a survey in which 60 percent of mortgage industry professionals polled said there was “zero chance” of housing finance reform happening under the Obama Administration, which ends in January 2017. About 34 percent of respondents in that survey said they believed there was less than a 25 percent chance of housing finance reform taking place under Obama’s watch.Stegman said the Administration would not end the conservatorship of the GSEs without a viable alternative that provides that elusive balance between eliminating taxpayer risk while still allowing credit access.”I know that many of you want to know where we are on housing finance reform,” Stegman said. “On this subject, let me be clear: the Administration stands by our belief that the only way to responsibly end the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is through legislation that puts in place a sustainable housing finance system that has private capital at risk ahead of taxpayers, while preserving access to mortgage credit during severe downturns.”Stegman also discussed the Hardest Hit Fund, which the government created in response to the financial crisis, and stated that to date the fund has provided more than $3.8 billion for 70 programs to help approximately 227,000 homeowners in the communities that were hit the hardest by the recession.
