The Villa “Z” was designed on a south sloping plot in a residential part of Prague, Czech Republic. The property is quite small–about 650 square meters. There are walls of the neighbor’s houses on the south and east borders. On the west side there is a house just 2,5 meters from the property line. Its windows are right on the facade facing the client’s house. On the positive side there is 10 meters of space from the road on the north, which makes the plot optically bigger. A major requirement of the client was to design the best house with a maximum of 350 m2 of living area which included four bedrooms, a garage, living rooms, spa etc. Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.euThese limitations were the most significant in designing the concept for the house.  There are neighbors on the east and west sides close to the property, who can watch what is happening on the site what we wanted to get rid of. This inspired us to design the house to be open to south and within itself   using a central patio in the second floor. This takes advantage of the nice south view to the hills and a scenic forest on the horizon. On the south sides,  we made all the living  areas with private terraces which are always hidden or somehow covered from the view of neighbors.   Other facades are using just wide narrow windows on the top of the rooms to bring light into utility rooms like bathrooms and the staircase, but keep privacy.  Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.euThe house is vertically divided into three levels. The first level is partly underground and it opens to the terrace and the garden on the south side. On this floor there is a utility room with all technical equipment, the main staircase and the spa zone (with sauna and bathroom). On the side facing the garden, there is a bedroom for guests and a party room or fitness room which is focused to the outside terrace. This area is mostly covered by the middle floor. This is useful when you want to use the terrace, even in rainy weather. The facade of this level is covered by a special black plaster so this basement is a hidden foundation for the white house above which optically lets it levitate above the ground. Save this picture!Courtesy of Closer ArchitectsThe middle floor is accessible at the same elevation as the road on the north side. On this level there is a garage for two cars, an entrance hall, main staircase, restroom, two kitchens (open and closed/caterer’s), a dining area and a living room. Along the south façade, especially in front of the kitchen, there is a big terrace which is cantilevered above the garden. This is also partly covered by the construction of the top floor.  This is used mostly as a dining terrace and is accessible through the sliding windows from the kitchen. The living room is covered by a sloping roof which allows the direct vertical connection through the master staircase with the gallery and master bedroom on the top floor.  The sloping roof brings the feeling of continual super elevated space. This idea is also supported by placing a triangular window on the facade heading to the private master terrace in front of the master bedroom and the gallery. This window brings light to the interior, even if the main windows on the south are covered. The triangular window also allows the visual connection between the private master terrace and the living room or gallery. The master staircase railing brings a dynamic shape into the interior as does the other furniture like the kitchen made of white tri-stone and the black painted oak book case. To the east, behind the master staircase there is a sloped window with a nice view to the Zen garden with a proposed stone statue,  which would be illuminated from below. Next to the window, there is a built in couch, where you can have a nap with a book while looking at the statue.  Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.euThe top floor is accessible either by the main staircase on the west side of the house – this is primarily used by two children, who have their bedrooms and restroom in the west wing, or by the master staircase from the living room. This is mostly used by the parents going to their bedroom (which has a private en-suite bathroom as well). There is a private, almost triangular master terrace, in front of the bedroom, which is also accessible from the gallery. It is bordered on three sides by a facade on the west, by windows on the north and east. A scenic view opens to the south through a small gap. This shape allows the owners to use the terrace with 100% privacy and still have a nice view to the forest on the opposite side of the valley and the distant horizon.Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.euThe middle and the top floor exteriors create dynamic black and white sloped spiral blocks which are twisted together. The black part – made of high glossy black painted glass panels and windows – divides the white cantilevered volumes which helps them    appear like they are floating in the air.  Additionally, the volume of the middle and top floor floating above the black basement—increases the sense of the Villa’s overall interlocking three dimensional volume.  Together these high contrast components, allow the house to embody the dynamic energy of a statue while optically decreasing its apparent volume (more than if it were monochrome).  Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.euThe interior design elements flow continuously from the exterior to the interior.  The same dynamic shapes and colors are used for the  furniture’s angles, staircase railings and even ceilings, all reinforced by LED light stripes.  Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.euWe took extensive care to create and design the architectural details to support the client needs through the Closer Architects vision. We give many thanks to the talented  sub-contractors who were really partners and helped to finish such a complex building within a reasonable budget.   Project gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: Green Go Short Film CompetitonCall for SubmissionsHappier Café – Paper Space / JC ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© www.aiphotography.eu+ 32 Share Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796951/house-z-closer-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

Southerland’s hot shooting continues, ties Big East tournament record with 16 3-pointers

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ NEW YORK — Georgetown made James Southerland work, but he tied the record anyway.Southerland hit four 3-pointers in Friday’s 58-55 win over the Hoyas at Madison Square Garden, tying the Big East tournament for most 3s made in a single tournament. His total through three games sits at 16, equaling the mark set by current Syracuse assistant coach Gerry McNamara in 2006 and former Connecticut guard Albert Mouring in 2000.What they did in four games, Southerland accomplished in three.“I just apologize to G‑Mac,” Southerland said with a wry smile in the postgame press conference. “Sorry, man.  I didn’t mean to do that.”Southerland was hot from the moment Syracuse set foot in the World’s Most Famous arena on Wednesday afternoon. He buried six 3-pointers in a comfortable win over Seton Hall, then followed it up with six more — he did not miss — in a gritty quarterfinal victory against Pittsburgh.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThrough two games, he was shooting an unthinkable 80 percent from beyond the arc.Georgetown, though, would present a different challenge. The Hoyas are one of the best defensive teams in the country, and John Thompson III tried anything and everything to prevent Southerland from getting easy looks.He was guarded by forward Nate Lubick for most of the game, a player whose agility could not match that of Southerland but whose length — Lubick is 6 feet, 8 inches — could pose a problem. And for a while it did, as Southerland missed his first 3-point attempt of the game and forced another that hit only backboard later in the half.But as McNamara rose to the occasion in 2006, Southerland would do so again in 2013. His four made field goals all came from beyond the arc on Friday, though it took him 10 attempts to do so.Still, Thompson III was impressed: “Through three games now, Southerland has given his Gerry McNamara imitation very well.” Comments Published on March 16, 2013 at 1:22 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13last_img read more

‘One of the guys,’ Lonzo Ball has Lakers teammates believing in him and a bright future

first_imgBall will be leading a team heavily reliant on young players, with the front office casting a hopeful eye toward the summer of 2018 when LeBron James and Paul George lead a cast of All-NBA free agents.Aside from veteran center Brook Lopez, acquired in the Russell trade, and fifth-year shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who signed as a free agent, players like 20-year-olds Ingram and Ivica Zubac and Julius Randle, a grizzled 22, are expected to make some of the biggest contributions with Ball at the forefront of it all.“We needed a leader on this team and we have one now,” said Johnson, who likes to present himself as a comparison for the young point guard.So, he understands the pressure Ball faces and where it comes from.“He’s a cool, good-looking young man,” Johnson said. “With the game to match. Wow, that’s L.A.” One day into Ball’s rookie season, that seems to be the point guard’s paradox. The only guy who doesn’t seem to be buying into the hysteria of the player who in a matter of months went from Chino Hills High to UCLA to the Lakers is Ball himself.

For four consecutive years he has arrived at training camp with a Lakers team boasting a bright future based around an exciting young core with great chemistry. Each season, he has watched those hopes disintegrate into losing and the inevitable roster change that followsWhat Randle has not experienced before is a teammate like Lonzo Ball. On one hand, Ball is already an L.A. icon without playing a single game; on the other hand, he’s kind of boring.“Everybody’s following his every move,” Randle said. “But honestly Zo is just Zo. Zo is relaxed, he’s chill. He doesn’t even say too much. He’s just one of the guys. For as much as he has going on around him you would never know.”Related Articles Miller: Lonzo Ball Era begins and Laker Nation braces with crazy anticipation Lakers: 5 burning questions going into training camp center_img In fact, the noise around Ball seems to merit more than a shrug these days.“I think he is tired of all this,” Johnson said, adding that Ball “wants to play.”No one has hyped up Ball more than his father, LaVar, the polarizing figure behind Big Baller Brand. Johnson said he and LaVar Ball have an open dialogue, but that he won’t “monitor” the outspoken patriarch.“I got 15 dudes I have to monitor and that’s it and who I am going to monitor,” Johnson said. “LaVar is a grown man. He is a great father. … LaVar is having fun with all of this. Give him credit, he understands how to market the Big Baller Brand. But my job is not to monitor him.”After finishing last season with 26 wins and shipping ill-fitting point guard D’Angelo Russell to Brooklyn, the Lakers appear committed to building around Ball, whose style of pushing the ball has been billed the perfect fit to Coach Luke Walton’s share-the-ball offense.“The way he plays, the unselfish brand is how we want to do it,” Walton said. “We’re changing up the style we’re going to play a little bit because we have a point guard who likes pushing the ball up the floor.”Ingram set a preseason goal for leading the Lakers in scoring this season, a mission he believes is possible with Ball delivering assists.“I know our point guard is going to help us score a lot of easy baskets this year,” he said, “so just to have a guy like him is going to help us out a lot.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“You get used to it when you play like this the whole time,” he said. “High school’s the same thing; college is the same thing; now I’m here. It’s the same thing. So, obviously, the media gets picked up and the attention gets bigger, but at the end of the day it’s just basketball.”There was plenty of unrestrained optimism to go around on Monday during the Lakers’ annual media day: for the extravagant new practice facility, for Brandon Ingram’s offseason work ethic and his defensive leadership. However, on the eve of the first practice of training camp, it was unsurprisingly Ball who continued to receive the most attention.Notably at issue: The pressure that awaits him as the centerpiece of a global basketball brand.“Everybody was waiting to see what was this dude going to do,” said Magic Johnson, the Lakers’ president of basketball operations. “Is he going to come in like a prima donna or come in wanting everything? Know what? He has been the opposite.” Lakers training camp roster Video: Luke Walton, Magic Johnson address Donald Trump comments, national anthem protests last_img read more
