This is a project about the restoration of a building between two party walls defined by a medieval division into lots old town. The plot is stretched in order to light up in two parallel streets and around 19 meters far from each other. The minimal width of 2.20 meters makes it worthy of being qualified as “unagi no nedoko”, which are narrow residual plots in Japanese cities. Save this picture!© Luis PrietoThe dimensions, which are truly difficult to reconcile the strict rules of habitability required in any housing intervention, became the first appeal of the proposal. Although in such cases the idea of aggregation of plots is often used to obtain comfortably habitable dimensions, due to a series of administrative complications the owners had to investigate the possibilities of carrying out the process without taking into account the adjacent buildings.Save this picture!© Luis PrietoInitially we obtained planning permission with a project that distributed two dwellings alternating  thanks to flights of crossed stairs. However during the construction process suggestive cross views and transparencies from street to street became visible and made us, both technicians and owner, to work on a single block on five levels. As it is easy to understand, the only feasible distribution gave to the building a centered position of the stairs that enabled units to each side with lighting and also ventilation to each of the facades. The heart of the building is composed of the staircase, the glass paved walkway that enables good lighting to the whole central portion, and the small domestic elevator. These three elements solve the program with little added divisions and changing and attractive usage possibilities thanks to some mobile furnishing.Save this picture!© Luis PrietoThe project builds its image in the only constructive elements that defined the building: wood structure and brick party walls. These walls, which are hidden behind thick plaster layers, were recovered, cleaned and grouted with lime mortar in the well-preserved canvases. The project sought to show up the expressive power of this rough and uneven material facing lightness and smoothness of the new contributions, which are mostly metal and glass pieces and smooth surfaces that are painted white. Lighting also seeks to support those effects, so that the gradient light emphasizes the expressiveness of brick, while points of light, which are hidden in the wooden structure, emit light to the white surfaces enabling any lighting piece hanging below the structure.Save this picture!Floor PlanNeatness of spaces is consequently shown up by setting value on the preexisting composition in front of the added elements. We are able to enjoy an entire volume basically defined by its powerful brick party walls.Project gallerySee allShow lessVilla for Girls / Soliscolomer y AsociadosSelected ProjectsDanish National Maritime Museum / BIG by George MessaritakisArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Calle Nueva, 15, 31001 Pamplona, Navarre, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

It will also give people the chance to broaden their horizons and create lasting friendships.”The Reading Agency was previously awarded £50,000 by the Big Lottery Fund in July 2015 to research and develop proposals for the new reading scheme, where the project tested different incentives and approaches to get and keep older people reading. It will start planning and development work in the autumn for the UK pilot phase of the project, planned for July next year. The project will be initially delivered in England, Scotland and Wales.

New initiatives in observing the antarctic mesosphere

first_imgStudies of the Antarctic mesosphere, and its contrasts with the Arctic, are expected to hold the key to improved understanding of the mesopause region and energy and momentum transfer processes linking the mesosphere to the atmosphere below and the magnetosphere above. It is with this objective that a number of new initiatives are being undertaken at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) research stations at Halley (76°S, 27°W) and Rothera (68°S, 68°W), both through new uses of existing instrumentation and through collaborative programmes with other groups. A brief review of recent developments and their scientific rationale is presented.last_img

Individual winter movement strategies in two species of Murre (Uria spp.) in the Northwest Atlantic

first_imgIndividual wintering strategies and patterns of winter site fidelity in successive years are highly variable among seabird species. Yet, an understanding of consistency in timing of movements and the degree of site fidelity is essential for assessing how seabird populations might be influenced by, and respond to, changing conditions on wintering grounds. To explore annual variation in migratory movements and wintering areas, we applied bird-borne geolocators on Thick-billed Murres (Uria lomvia, n = 19) and Common Murres (U. aalge, n = 20) from 5 colonies in the Northwest Atlantic for 2–4 consecutive years. Thick-billed Murres ranged widely and among-individual wintering strategies were highly variable, whereas most Common Murres wintered relatively near their colonies, with among-individual variation represented more by the relative use of inshore vs. offshore habitat. Within individuals, some aspects of the wintering strategy were more repeatable than others: colony arrival and departure dates were more consistent by individual Common than Thick-billed Murres, while the sizes of home ranges (95% utilization distributions) and distances travelled to wintering area were more repeatable for both species. In consecutive years, individual home ranges overlapped from 0–64% (Thick-billed Murres) and 0–95% (Common Murres); and the winter centroids were just 239 km and 169 km apart (respectively). Over the 3–4 year timescale of our study, individuals employed either fixed or flexible wintering strategies; although most birds showed high winter site fidelity, some shifted core ranges after 2 or 3 years. The capacity among seabird species for a combination of fidelity and flexibility, in which individuals may choose from a range of alternative strategies, deserves further, longer term attention.last_img read more
