Casa Guayacán is located in the mountainous foothills of Nosara. The property is surrounded by primary tropical forests and presents a splendid ocean view. This house was designed by a couple of architects (Evangelina Quesada and Lucca Spendlingwimmer), who decided to move to the mountain with their two daughters to enjoy the tranquility that the mountain offers. Casa Guayacán was conceived under a deep process of discussion between both architects, with different ideas and tastes at times, but with the advantage that both architects are lovers of contemporary tropical architecture and in this respect they agreed and were able to capture the concepts they have developed in common throughout their professional careers.Save this picture!© Andrés García LachnerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andrés García Lachner  The starting point of the design was to develop an elongated facade from North to South to focus most of the spaces towards the ocean view. The west façade opens towards sunset and in the morning the vibrant light appears from the east. It was also very important to move the house as far away from the public street as possible to create the maximum space for privacy in the front yard. The main challenge was the unevenness of the terrain. It was decided to develop the design on two levels, the lower level was partially shorter, so that the access area was below the main structure. The lower level was used for general access, the parking area, a studio and service area. The upper level was used to exclusively locate the common areas and bedrooms to fully exploit the ocean view and the sea breeze. Cross ventilation through its facades was emphasized with a system of half-open wood slats through which the air flow passes, in addition to the internal spaces, this lattice creates a changing light pattern during sunny hours. The configuration of the floor plan was made on a modular grid of 1.8 meters between axes, on this lines it was developed the distribution of the spaces and the structural system of both levels, this contributed to the spatial order, made the construction process more agile and meant a reduction in the waste of materials.Save this picture!© Andrés García LachnerSave this picture!Transversal sectionSave this picture!© Andrés García LachnerCasa Guayacán was built in masonry, metal, wood and glass under common construction methods in the area, the wood was treated with linseed oil keeping part of the texture to give a soft color and a natural texture, the wood work was done by local artisans, and the wood used was teak from controlled plantations. Some main walls were emphasized in polished cement to create a contrast with the other mostly white walls. In the part of energy saving, Casa Guayacán has a solar panel system that provides 100% autonomy day and night. As a final result the design of Casa Guayacán is a composition of simple lines and geometric solids with a detailed lattice of serial woods, a combination of solidity and transparency.Save this picture!© Andrés García LachnerSave this picture!© Andrés García LachnerProject gallerySee allShow lessOptimistic Realism and Shared Autonomy: 5 Young Practices with New VisionsArticlesRevitalization of Prague’s Riverfront / petrjanda/brainworkSelected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Andrés García Lachner+ 44Curated by Clara Ott Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941397/guayacan-house-salagnac-arquitectos Clipboard CopyHouses•Nosara, Costa Rica Year:  Costa Rica ArchDaily Lead Architects: 2019 “COPY” Area:  450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Guayacan House / Salagnac ArquitectosSave this projectSaveGuayacan House / Salagnac Arquitectos Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Lumion, American Standard, Delta Light, Nemetschek, A.C.

Photo: US Navy View post tag: USS Coronado US Navy littoral combat ship USS Coronado (LCS 4) completed the first comprehensive Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) for the MQ-8C Fire Scout on June 29.The ship’s crew worked with the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 1 (VX-1) for the IOT&E which will inform decision-makers on how best to integrate the navy’s newest unmanned helicopter with littoral combat ships (LCS) and other platforms.During the IOT&E, the MQ-8C Fire Scout performed several mission scenarios aboard Coronado off the coast of southern California.These operations are an important milestone for the LCS and Fire Scout programs, and demonstrated cohesion between the surface and aviation platforms, according to the navy.“The results, lessons learned, and recommendations reported on following this underway test period are absolutely invaluable to the future of the MQ-8C Fire Scout’s mission effectiveness and suitability to perform that mission,” said Lt. Cmdr. Seth Ervin, the lead for the VX-1 detachment aboard Coronado.Coronado and VX-1 conducted simulated engagements to evaluate Fire Scout’s role in target identification, intelligence gathering and surface warfare operations.The testing also focused on developing practices for simultaneously operating and maintaining both the MQ-8C Fire Scout and the MH-60S Seahawk. Results confirmed that while it requires extensive planning and coordination across the ship, simultaneous operations can be conducted.“It has been challenging and rewarding to be one of the first maintainers afforded the opportunity to take both aircraft aboard the ship. Working together, we made the overall product more functional and efficient for the fleet,” said Aviation Machinist’s Mate Second Class Salvatore Greene, a member of VX-1.The first ship-based flight of the MQ-8C Fire Scout occurred aboard USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109) in December 2014, and previous underway testing was also conducted with USS Montgomery (LCS 8) in April 2017.Pierside testing of the MQ-8C Fire Scout will continue onboard Coronado throughout mid-July with a focus on maintenance and cyber.

first_imgVetter is the 2nd Badger to win the Patty Kazmaier.[/media-credit]Too often in today’s sports world, great performances, games and careers are met with a whirlwind of hyperbole. In the case of Wisconsin women’s hockey senior goalie Jessie Vetter, however, every superlative has been earned.Last weekend, Vetter put the finishing touches on arguably the most successful women’s college hockey career in history with her third national title in four seasons, as well as taking home the Patty Kazmaier Award, given annually to the most outstanding women’s hockey player.In winning the Kazmaier, Vetter became both the second Badger and second goaltender to receive the honor. She joins former UW standout Sara Bauer, who won in 2006, and Racine, Wis., native Ali Brewer, who merited the distinction in 2000 while tending goal for Brown University.Vetter said looking back at the history of the award put in perspective what winning meant.“Just watching the video when at the Patty Kazmaier brunch, seeing all the past winners — they’re Olympians, they’re All-Americans,” Vetter said. “They’re just amazing athletes, incredible people. Just being among them is a great honor.”Junior forward and teammate Meghan Duggan said the rest of the team was just as nervous as Vetter as they waited for the announcement.“We’re all sitting there, crossing our fingers under the table and looking down,” said Duggan, who set a new UW record for playoff points after tallying five on the weekend. “But as soon as the guy said, ‘This year’s Patty Kazmaier Award goes to,’ and he said, ‘a goaltender,’ we heard goaltender and we just went crazy. Obviously, that’s just a tremendous, tremendous award to get, and she deserves every bit of it.”Besides the three national titles and a Patty Kazmaier trophy to her name, Vetter’s near omnipresence in Wisconsin goaltending records captures her sustained excellence. She hangs up her Badger sweater with NCAA records in victories (91) and shutouts (39, nine better than her closest follower). And among Badger netminders, she ranks second in games played, goals against average, save percentage, saves and minutes played.In this year’s championship game versus Mercyhurst College, Vetter tied a career high with 37 saves, giving her 65 stops out of 66 tries for the Frozen Four. Although her performance was remarkable, Wisconsin coach Mark Johnson said he has learned to expect nothing less.“We sort of get used to her because we’ve seen her on a regular basis,” Johnson, who will be taking off next season to coach the women’s Olympic team, said. “But I think the people in Boston, especially [on Sunday], saw what she’s done for us for four years. When we bend a little bit, she’s right there. Very comfortable, very confident — the more pressure, the more relaxed she gets.”According to Johnson, it was a different matchup versus Mercyhurst in 2005-06 when he knew Vetter was a unique talent. Only a freshman, Vetter led the Badgers to their first Frozen Four appearance, stopping 37 of 38 shots in a 2-1 double-overtime win.“She’s playing in front of her home crowd, her family, it’s our first home game during that stuff — I mean there’s a lot of pressure, and now you’re the goaltender,” Johnson said. “If you watched the game, you wouldn’t have even thought about it. You would have thought it was just another Saturday afternoon pickup game and she was going to shut out a men’s team.”That year, Vetter was named Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player — the first freshman and netminder to do so — after recording the first two shutouts in Frozen Four history. Since then, Vetter and her classmates have played in three more title games, finishing their careers with an incredible 135-16-12 record.“We’ve been a part of a lot of great teams,” said Vetter, who won her second Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player Award on Sunday. “You know the players before us and the ones that are still on our team underneath us are great players. We’ve definitely done a good job here. We’ve played every game we can and that’s pretty cool.”Although it’s merely an afterthought considering the achievements she has to her name now, five years ago Vetter redshirted and watched as Wisconsin lost to Dartmouth in the quarterfinals of the 2005 NCAA Tournament. While the waiting was difficult after a high school career that included being named a finalist for Miss Hockey Wisconsin and three all-state selections as a soccer goalie, Vetter said in retrospect it was the right move.“Freshman year, I wanted to redshirt, but I didn’t want to redshirt because that’s a long year of not playing,” she said. “But when I look back on it, that was one of the best decisions I could have done. These four years have been pretty incredible and something I’ll always remember.”As will the rest of the women’s college hockey world, which will be happy to see a number other than 30 blocking the Badger net next season. While it is for others to discuss where the run made by this year’s seniors ranks, to Johnson, it’s clear who deserves credit first.“In our world — in the hockey business — it starts from the goal out,” he said. “You see teams that win championships are usually talking about their goaltenders. On the women’s side, she’s got to be right there at the top. I’d be hard-pressed to find someone who can duplicate what she’s done.”Looking over her career accomplishments, none of that seems hyperbolic.last_img read more

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (May 31, 2015)–Sent to the lead from the outset by Tyler Baze, favored Oliver’s Tale wouldn’t be denied as he out-gamed Holy Lute to take Sunday’s $75,000 Siren Lure Stakes by a nose, negotiating 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in 1:13.88. Trained by Mark Tsagalakis and owned and bred by his family’s M T Racing Stables, LLC, lightly raced Oliver’s Tale notched his second win in a row over the course and got his fourth win from nine overall starts.A 6-year-old horse by E Dubai, Oliver’s Tale was off at 3-2 in a field of five three year olds and up and paid $5.00, $3.00 and $2.60. A perfect three for three down the hillside turf, “Oliver” picked up $46,500 for the win, increasing his earnings to $179,950.“He’s a very talented horse,” said Tsagalakis, who is currently based at Los Alamitos. “You just have to give him time and we let him tell us when he’s ready. He’s a fun horse to be around. We’ll see if there’s anything short on the grass at Del Mar, if not, we might look at running him a mile.”Baze, who rode him for the first time in a comeback effort on March 20, is now two for two aboard the winner.“He dug in and he wasn’t letting that horse (Holy Lute) get by him,” said Baze, who cleared the runner-up and cut to the rail a half mile from home. “It was a great battle there the last three sixteenths of a mile. He wouldn’t give an inch. He ran a great race and I hope we can run him at Del Mar.”Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Holy Lute broke from the rail and appeared to have the winner measured a quarter mile from home, but had to settle for second, a nose in front of an onrushing Pure Tactics. The second choice in the tote at 8-5, Holy Lute paid $3.00 and $2.60.Pure Tactics, who broke from the outside with Gary Stevens, was a handful on post parade but settled nicely for Stevens, falling back to last, about a dozen lengths off the leader after the first half mile and came smoking late to just miss, finishing a length in front of County Lineman. Off at 7-2, Pure Tactics paid $3.00 to show.Racing resumes on Thursday with first post time at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m.last_img read more
