The project was built in Costa Esmeralda, a private enterprise with 1000 ha and more than 3km of Atlantic coast, 390 km from the City of Buenos Aires. (Residential Neighborhood 1 – Lot 19)Save this picture!© Tomás ThibaudThe project reinterprets the courtyard typology. The morphology of the plan is structured around a tight and absorbing space, sheltered from strong winds and low winter temperatures.Save this picture!© Tomás ThibaudThe client commissioned a holiday home for use in all seasons, both summer and winter with the main premise of “feeling inside being outside, and outside being inside.” As this is a house to entertain guests, a clear independence between the common area and the private area was proposed. The courtyard, protagonist on the side access, acts as a functional, auditory and visual hinge between these two areas, like the semi public architectural program that develops behind. Three bedrooms, the night rest area is located to the front, while the area of greatest social exposure is located to the back. This void of 80 m2, the heart of the project, solves the semi covered circulation between the program, and is responsible for integrating the interior – exterior doorway, thus generating a projected range of meters which do not compute as built area. The house of 160 m2 then seeks to conquer the lot, implanted in the center and occupying the highest amount of linear feet between mandatory setbacks.Save this picture!PlanAnother determining factor that the project addresses is Privacy. With over 4000 available lots, we decided on an introspective project, displaying little on the facade, with a rectangular, modulated, sober and off the ground section. Four Araucaria pines are the only sign from the street of the situation projected inwardly. The front facade is translated on the dense, rustic, heavy, and opaque stone volume, which contains the pedestrian access. Once inside, the architecture becomes almost invisible, with a glazed living dining room on both sides that allows users to observe the depth of the lot and its wild vegetation. The common covered area enhances the gesture of intimacy to the back of the site; materialized by a sloping eave that modifies the height of the woodwork and protects interior furnishings from the sun exposure which means facing north. The sliding woodwork open up and make the covered area flexible.Save this picture!© Tomás ThibaudWith regard to materiality, we decided on the use of noble materials such as stone, wood for exposed floors, travertine marble for interior floors, and cement green for plastered masonry walls, which is camouflaged with abundant maritime pines.Save this picture!© Tomás ThibaudWe also performed a topographic work or sand movement with wooden beams. We thus placed the garage on the lower level of the lot, releasing the views of the front bedrooms. Finally, another sand containment was done on the rear setback, maximizing the higher levels to enhance privacy and shelter from the elements.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: Archonic Magazine #2 “Disassemble”Architecture NewsRT Residence / Jacobsen ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share Argentina “COPY” Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/588839/el-patio-house-lucas-mc-lean Clipboard Architects: Lucas Mc Lean Year Completion year of this architecture project El Patio House / Lucas Mc LeanSave this projectSaveEl Patio House / Lucas Mc Lean CopyAbout this officeLucas Mc LeanOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa EsmeraldaArgentinaPublished on January 21, 2015Cite: “El Patio House / Lucas Mc Lean” [Casa El Patio / Lucas Mc Lean] 21 Jan 2015.

Harvesting Corn on Christmas

first_img Harvesting Corn on Christmas Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Oct 24, 2017 Harvesting Corn on ChristmasBrian BushThe pace of the 2017 harvest has been slow; and, in many parts of Indiana, it is nearing completion and even wrapped for some growers. However, in SE Indiana, the corn harvest is just getting started, according to Brian Bush with DuPont Pioneer. “Some of the corn that was planted at the end of May is just now nearing maturity. We have many fields with corn still at 30% moisture,” he stated. “Some of our producers are only 2 weeks into harvest and are wondering if they will still be cutting corn on Christmas.”Bush reports that yields are highly variable, with some growers experiencing average yields and others surprised by higher than expected totals, “It just depends on the planting dates and the kind of soil you have.”Bush says the wet weather of the past few days and more rain in the forecast has him concerned about the standability of the crop, “A good strong wind could take down a lot of this corn.” He urges growers to check fields and prioritize harvest on stalk integrity. While September provided some great weather for dry down, October and November are not likely to provide the kind of conditions to dry the corn quickly.Listen to the complete interview with Brian Bush under the agronomy tab.
