A silent sculpture amidst calmnessHouse and Studio YCThe building is situated in the center of the plot, respecting the limits for construction and plot ratio. The house rises as a single body. Its shape is influenced by physical and morphological conditions and by the program.Save this picture!© Lorenzo VecchiaThe initial idea of the project is to expand the building up inside the parcel and surrounding existing treesin order to preserve the maximum possible trees; later the shape wasadapted to the program, to acquire the final setting.Save this picture!© Lorenzo VecchiaBuilding geometry is divided into five main bodies or pavilions (1. Entrance stair and craft room, 2. Kitchen, 3.Living room, 4.Suite, 5. Children’s bedroom) separated by patios and all connected by a central distributor that serves the different rooms. This central part is covered by a flat roof; from this central hall,the five spreads are covered with an inclination of 30º (from the center to the exterior – unlike conventional roofs), allowing the variation in height between each of the parties and creating an attractive volume.Save this picture!Floor PlanEach body is isolated from the others, has its own orientation and its own views to the exterior. Courtyards between the bodies allow entrance of natural light and integration between interior space and exterior space.Save this picture!© Lorenzo VecchiaAs bodies, also patios have a different orientation. They are like cuts of main body following different angles and spaciousness. In such a way, visitor never has the same vision and perception of space. Different angles, variety of views, variety of colors, variety of light. That is the main focus of the house: to capture segments of natural light and their change in space throughout the day and year depending on seasons and weather.This device contributes to get a changing image of the house. Visitor’s eye could cross different patios and glass reflections offer him interesting lighting and colors effects.Save this picture!SectionHouse skin is continuous; there is no fracture between façades and roof. According to local regulation, skin color is natural and earthy in order to get a perfect integration between nature and building. Similar to both tree trunk and soil, house color fits in perfectly with theochre range of colors of thesurrounding. When the trees will grow and complement the existing vegetation, over the years the objective of discovering the hidden house behind the treeswill be achieved.Save this picture!© Lorenzo VecchiaThe house has a very different view at day and at night. During the day it is possible to discover the house hidden behind the vegetation. When darkness surrounds the building, the illuminated interior gleams and the house shines like a sculpture into the surrounding.Save this picture!SectionAll uses are arranged in underground and ground floor. Main access is placed in lower level both for pedestrians and cars. From one side it is possible to reach the main stair to upper floor and from the other side an independent studio with its private entrance. This area gets natural light thanks to its glass walls and to the double height courtyard that leads light from the bottom to the basement.Natural ventilation and geothermal heating and cooling are part of the energy plan.Save this picture!© Lorenzo VecchiaProject gallerySee allShow lessCdV House / DDA Despacho de ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsHouse Architecture Rifa G’07 / Villalba, Rudolph, Vila, López, Canén, Apolant, MartinezSelected Projects Share Area: 290 m² Area: 290 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Lorenzo Vecchia+ 17 Share CopyAbout this officeSantiago Parramón, RTA-OfficeOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEl Vallès OrientalSantiago ParramónRTA-OfficeHousesSpainPublished on December 04, 2014Cite: “House and Studio YC / Santiago Parramón, RTA-Office” 04 Dec 2014.

Sinsu-dong, Mapo-gu, is a general residential area with many old houses in Seoul. The site where the Sista House is located borders on a narrow road that is less than 4 meters wide and the neighborhood was lagging behind after redevelopment efforts of many years had failed. Also, real estate brokers started to build illegal multiple housings in the alley instead of house owners who sold and left their homes. A young couple in their 30s wanted to build a rental house here for women. They were usually concerned with and felt a critical mind with housings for women.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Kyungsub ShinSave this picture!© Kyungsub ShinAfter years of preparation to provide them with a good residential environment and they finally got a land contract, they banded together with young architects to solve the problem. The former landlord was a builder who decided to resell the land even though it had a good location with universities and many companies around, which is not far from subway stations. Since the width of the road bordering on the site was less than 4M, the area of 139㎡on the paper actually became 131㎡as 8㎡belonged to the road. In the end, the builder decided that it was not profitable and gave up on the land. Sista House, aiming for a comfortable and sensuous living environment for young women in their 20s and 30s, has given each space its own character to differentiate itself from existing multiple housings within its limited area and budget. The common staircase was designed with rough exposed concrete walls and stone burner floor finishing, avoiding embellishment as much as possible and revealing the texture of the material itself.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinConflicting atmosphere was intended against the private space which is a cozy place beyond the entrance of each house. The staircase facing the road is a common space inside the building, but on the contrary it is a private space outside the building. Therefore, by adding a layer through masonry work to the curtain wall of the staircase, it is advantageous for light and ventilation while blocking another’s eyes from outside. The private space is planned to be completely different from the staircase. The interior has more warm and comfortable feeling with oak tree flooring, white-tone walls and furniture. The window size is larger than that of conventional houses, which is advantageous for openness and lighting. For the building exterior material, clay bricks which mix well with the surroundings was mainly used and the coated metal panel that contrasts with bricks was used for the upper inclined walls and the same material was used to the upper part of the piloti parking lot, creating a sense of unity.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe flat composition of households consist of a household compositions with unique characteristics such as one-room house, two-room house, house with an outside yard and house with a high ceiling, reflecting tastes of various female residents. The first floor of the Sista House is a music hall for various social gatherings. It will be a community place where residents can interact and communicate with their surroundings through music. People who lived in the neighborhood for a long time like it, saying that the atmosphere of Sinsu-dong alley has already changed since the completion. It also plays a role of brightening and arousing the surroundings. I hope that the Sista House in which comfort and uniqueness contrast will be a new but familiar house in Sinsu-dong and become a house that remains in people’s memory for a long time.

SHARE ASA and Other Farm Groups Press EPA on Enlist Duo Scrutiny Previous articleUS Oil Rebounds on Export OpertunityNext articleSyngenta CEO Open to Merger and Acquisition Discussions Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE In a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy, the American Soybean Association, as part of a coalition of major farm groups pressed the agency to withdraw its request to vacate the registration for Dow’s Enlist Duo herbicide. The letter highlighted the urgent need for new modes of action to tackle resistant weeds on farms across the country. The groups cited the already-exhaustive review undertaken by both USDA and EPA on the Enlist family of products. The letter stated “these delays are necessitating more intense weed control practices that complicate environmental management.” The groups also took issue with EPA’s reference to additional and new data in its decision to reevaluate Enlist Duo.The American Soybean Association was joined on the letter by the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council and the National Farmers Union.
