The Lloyds Bank share price has touched 50p. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 2nd June, 2021 | More on: LLOY A little over a month ago, I was confident that Lloyds Bank (LSE: LLOY) was on its way back up. In today’s trading, the Lloyds Bank share price reached 50p, the level I had predicted. Why I expected the Lloyds Bank share price to riseMy argument was based on the momentum recently seen in its share price. A positive earnings report, improving economy, and its own bullishness were the reasons I expected to see these gains. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Specifically, I had said that this was possible in a matter of months, if not less. It has taken just a month and a few days. In fact, it was so increasingly evident to me that it would cross 50p soon, that by mid-May I had said that it could now head to the 60p mark. The next important questionThese short-term price targets are helpful to me as an investor to understand the share better. At the same time, we at the Motley Fool are interested in a long-term answer. The question to which is: Can the Lloyds share price continue to generate capital gains for me over time?I think it is important to ask this question right now more than at any other time I have tracked the stock. This is because until last year, Lloyds paid a hefty dividend. This meant it was a somewhat attractive stock despite its weak share price trend. But last year, the Bank of England asked banks to first stop paying dividends and then allowed them only cautiously. As a result, the Lloyds dividend yield is low. So if its share price does not continue to rise, I just do not see any reason to buy the share. There is much hopeI am hopeful though. The regulator hopes that the “guardrails” as they are called, will be there for only some time. Lloyds’ and other banks’ latest healthy results only encourage this idea further. As do the BoE’s optimistic projections for economic growth. This means that not only can it start paying dividends, its share price can continue rising too. But also a catchBut here is a catch.House prices are still elevated, but BoE’s numbers from earlier today show a sharp fall in home loans in April compared to the month before. Lloyds is the country’s biggest lender in the category, so I would watch this trend going forward. This is important because the stamp duty holiday gave a big push to the housing market in an otherwise poor year. And it will start getting withdrawn from the end of June. My takeaway for the Lloyds Bank share priceI think the next update from Lloyds is an important one. It will give a real insight into the bank’s performance after the economic wheels start turning again. It might also give guidance to help in making an assessment of its future. As I said in my last article on the bank, I will wait for another update before making a call on the Lloyds share price.  I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

(Photo: Inpho) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS How was the U20 World Championship?Not many experiences compete with it. It was incredible to be part of a team that made history by beating New Zealand and reaching the final.What are next season’s aims?To get as many Ulster caps as I can and help them push on and get silverware.What interests do you have outside rugby?I started a criminology degree but postponed it when I got into the senior side. I’ll go back in January. TAGS: Ulster Tell us about your rugby background…My dad and grandad played and I started when I was about six at Ballynahinch.

Rugby Rant: Red cards not the answer to brain injury crisis

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Will Goodrick-Clarke is sent off for a high tackle (Getty Images) Rugby Rant: Red cards not the answer to brain injury crisis“There was no intent but it’s contact with the head, and that is not allowed. Players are just going to have to learn. There will be a transition period as they do, but player welfare is paramount.”Apologies if there are any clichés missing from those that get repeated with each and every red card, but is it too much to hope people of influence might start to say, “Hang on a minute, how long have we been trotting out this spiel?” Because the answer is four years.The directives regarding sanctions for contact with the head came in on 3 January 2017. The red cards are intended as a deterrent, but deterrents only work when offences are deliberate. So cliché number one – “There was no intent” – ought to set alarm bells ringing. If none of these offences is deliberate, they’re going to keep happening, no matter how many red cards you bandy about.The idea is to get people to tackle lower. This is admirable and has actually been achieved, even if education and law change would do the job just as well. But it is possible to use World Rugby’s own figures to calculate the maximum reduction in concussion you could expect if every tackler bent at the waist. It’s 8%.“The maximum reduction in concussion you could expect if every tackler bent at the waist is 8%”There are as many red cards now as there were four years ago – more if anything. Concussion rates are as high as ever. Even if they weren’t, concussion is at best a small part of the real problem, which is the risk of neurodegenerative conditions in later life. That risk is attributable not to the odd high tackle but to the relentless collisions year after year. Red cards do nothing to stop those. It’s time for a rethink, argues rugby journalist Michael Aylwincenter_img We even have people arguing that the red cards are not moral judgements but ways of punishing technical failings. But a red card – and subsequent ban – is the ultimate moral judgement for players. Nowhere else in the sporting universe are players sent off and banned for technical failings they cannot avoid.Rugby has been presented with a hideous reality – that brain injury and its long-term repercussions are hard-wired into its very nature. Rather than institute law changes to try to address the problem, the sport has chosen to blame its own players by sending them off.The players have become scapegoats for the very conditions they are at risk of developing. And their risk of developing those conditions is not in any way improved because of it. Think about that the next time you hear any of those earlier clichés. Maybe, four years in, it is time to start challenging them. Can’t get to the shops?

Problemas globales dominan la Reunión de los Primados, mientras la…

first_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Por Matthew DaviesPosted Oct 3, 2017 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis El obispo primado Michael Curry ofrece las oraciones de apertura por Nevada durante el oficio de Vísperas en la catedral de Cantórbery el 2 de octubre. Foto ACNS[Episcopal News Service, Cantórbery – Inglaterra] El obispo primado Michael Curry participa con la mayoría de sus homólogos primados anglicanos —o principales líderes de la Iglesia— en una reunión de cinco días en Cantórbery esta semana que se centra fundamentalmente en los problemas globales de paz y justicia, los refugiados y las preocupaciones medioambientales. Pero el tema de la igualdad matrimonial ha ocupado un importante espacio de las dos primeras jornadas.El 3 de octubre, la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa estuvo de acuerdo en aceptar ciertas “consecuencias” por aprobar anteriormente este año el permitir en la Iglesia matrimonios de parejas del mismo sexo.Los primados, en su última reunión en enero de 2016, pidieron que las mismas consecuencias se aplicaran a la Iglesia Episcopal en EE.UU. Pidieron que la Iglesia Episcopal, durante un período de tres años, “no nos representara en organismos ecuménicos e interreligiosos, no debía ser nombrada o electa a un comité permanente interno y…no tomaría parte en la toma de decisiones sobre asuntos que atañeran la doctrina o política [de la Iglesia]. Esa medida se produjo en respuesta a la decisión de la Convención General de 2015 de cambiar el lenguaje canónico que define el matrimonio como entre un hombre y una mujer (Resolución A036) y autorizar dos nuevos ritos matrimoniales con un lenguaje que puede ser usado por parejas del mismo sexo o de sexos opuestos (Resolución A054).En una iniciativa semejante, el Sínodo General de la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa votó en junio pasado a favor de que parejas homosexuales se casaran por la Iglesia. Esa votación significa que deberán cambiarse los Cánones para eliminar la definición de que el matrimonio es entre un hombre y una mujer, lo cual le permitiría a cristianos homosexuales, varones y mujeres, casarse por la Iglesia. El cambio en los Cánones también estipulará que los miembros del clero no están obligados a solemnizar un matrimonio en contra de su conciencia.El obispo Mark Strange, primus de la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa, dijo en un comunicado que la decisión “era de nuestra competencia como provincia autónoma de la Comunión Anglicana”, pero él reconoció que ha causado “algún dolor y cólera en partes de la Comunión Anglicana”.Strange también reconoció que la decisión tomada en la última Reunión de los Primados “de excluir a nuestros hermanos y hermanas de la Iglesia Episcopal del debate sobre la doctrina y de presidir comités de la Comunión Anglicana, es una decisión que ahora también nos atañe a nosotros. Continuaremos desempeñando nuestro papel en la Comunión Anglicana que ayudamos a establecer, y yo quiero hacer todo lo que pueda para rehacer las relaciones, pero eso se hará a partir de la posición a la que nuestra Iglesia ha llegado en conformidad con sus procesos sinódicos y en la creencia de que el amor significa amor”.Él explicó que el proceso en Escocia había incluido “mucha oración, debate teológico, testimonio franco y, a veces, muy personal y esa oportunidad se le ha proporcionado a grupos a través de toda la Iglesia para debatir este asunto y orar al respecto; esto incluyó la voz de los jóvenes de la Iglesia, el compartir impactantes palabras y relatos de miembros mayores y oír a la representación de los que sostienen la interpretación tradicional del matrimonio, los que ven el matrimonio como inclusivo de parejas del mismo sexo y los que se han encontrado con la exclusión en declarar su amor”.El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby se dirige a los medios informativos el 3 de octubre durante una conferencia de prensa  al concluir el segundo día de la Reunión de los Primados.  Foto ACNS.Durante una conferencia de prensa el 3 de octubre, el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby dijo que “había muchísimas expresiones de desencanto” con la decisión de Escocia, pero que Strange había sido “cuidadoso en expresar su reconocimiento de que esto iba a conducir a consecuencias respecto a no poder desempeñar papeles ecuménicos o de liderazgo en la Comunión Anglicana… y era acorde con las decisiones a las que se llegaron en enero de 2016”. Welby dijo que los primados no habían recurrido a ninguna votación para pedirle a la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa que aceptara las consecuencias “ya que no hubo necesidad de ninguna”.En su reunión de enero de 2016, una mayoría de los primados solicitó que se tomaran medidas contra la Iglesia Episcopal, usando oficialmente el lenguaje de “consecuencias”, aunque algunos arguyeron de que eran de hecho “sanciones” con diferente identidad.Tres meses más tarde, en abril de 2016, el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el único organismo facultado a diseñar políticas en el seno de la Comunión, declinó respaldar o tomar ninguna decisión semejante al llamado de los primados de [imponer] tres años de las llamadas “consecuencias” a la Iglesia Episcopal. Los tres miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal ante el CCA participaron plenamente en la reunión.Tres primados —el arzobispo Nicholas Okoh de Nigeria, el arzobispo Onesphore Rwaje de Ruanda y el arzobispo Stanley Ntagali de Uganda— no asisten a la Reunión de los Primados debido a los acontecimientos en la Iglesia Episcopal en EE.UU. y en la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa.Otros tres —el arzobispo Sturdie Downs de Centroamérica, el arzobispo Jacob Chimeledya de Tanzania y el arzobispo Stephen Than Myint Oo de Myanmar— están ausentes de la reunión debido a un mezcla de problemas prácticos y de salud así como de asuntos internos de países, según la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana.En enero de 2016, los primados también le pidieron al arzobispo de Cantórbery que estableciera un equipo de trabajo “para mantener el diálogo entre nosotros con la intención de restaurar las relaciones, rehacer la confianza mutua, restañar el legado de dolor, reconociendo la extensión de nuestra homogeneidad y explorando nuestras profundas diferencias, garantizando que se mantengan entre nosotros  en el amor y la gracia de Cristo”.El equipo de trabajo celebró su primera reunión en septiembre del año pasado e informó a los primados durante los dos primeros días de la reunión en Cantórbery. Curry es miembro del equipo.Los problemas de la sexualidad humana han dominado muchas de las reuniones de los primados en los últimos 15 años. Aunque esta reunión ha comenzado por abordar decisiones provinciales recientes sobre la igualdad matrimonial, los primados ahora esperan dirigir su atención a otros apremiantes intereses globales que afectan a los 165 países y 39 provincias que ellos representan.Curry ha dicho que espera hablar acerca de migración, inmigración y refugiados en la reunión, la segunda a la que asiste desde que se convirtieran en obispo primado en 2015.“La mayoría de nuestros países se ven afectados por personas que huyen de guerras, violencia e injusticias y en muchos de nuestros países extraordinarios ministerios están tendiendo la mano para ayudar a los que se encuentran refugiados”, dijo Curry en un reciente mensaje videográfico. “En la Iglesia Episcopal, eso es cierto también. Aun ahora, los jóvenes a los que llamamos soñadores, cuyos padres los trajeron aquí hace años… están asustados y temerosos de que podrían tener que abandonar este país… Los refugiados son nuestros hermanos y nuestras hermanas porque un solo Dios nos creó… Y debemos ayudar a los que son nuestros hermanos y hermanas y se encuentran refugiados”.El mensaje de Curry tiene lugar contra un trasfondo de creciente intolerancia hacia los refugiados en EE.UU. y en un momento cuando el presidente de EE.UU. Donald Trump ha anunciado que se propone reducir  el límite de admisiones de refugiados para el próximo año a 45.000 personas, casi la mitad del anterior mínimo histórico de 85.000. Entre tanto, el 25 de septiembre, el gobierno de Trump emitió su tercera prohibición de viajes en menos de un año destinada a bloquear el ingreso en Estados Unidos a todos los refugiados y viajeros provenientes de ocho países de mayoría musulmana.Al tiempo que la reunión en Cantórbery se iniciaba con la trágica noticia de la masacre de Las Vegas, los primados se reunieron en torno a Curry en oración y solidaridad, emitiendo una declaración en que calificaban la masacre del fin de semana de “ verdaderamente estremecedora”.  Los primados también invitaron a Curry a dirigir las oraciones de apertura durante el oficio de Vísperas en la catedral de Cantórbery el 2 de octubre.En un mensaje videográfico publicado la semana pasada, el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby dijo: “Echaremos de menos a los que no estén allí, les echaremos mucho de menos”.Y de la reunión misma, Welby dijo: “Espero enormemente de la Reunión de los Primados. Es una emoción extraordinaria tener a los líderes de todas las provincias reunidos juntos para orar, para alentarse mutuamente, para llorar unos con otros, para celebrar unos con otros”.¿Quiénes son los primados y qué es la Reunión de los Primados?Los primados son los principales arzobispos y obispos primados elegidos o nombrados para dirigir cada una de las 39 provincias autónomas de la Comunión Anglicana, a quienes el Arzobispo de Cantórbery invita a las reuniones de los primados para consultas sobre asuntos teológicos, sociales e internacionales.La Reunión de los Primados de la Comunión Anglicana es uno de los tres instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros dos la Conferencia de Lambeth (de obispos) y el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo diseñador de políticas de la Comunión. El Arzobispo de Cantórbery, como primus inter pares o “primero entre iguales” es reconocido como el foco de la unidad de la Comunión Anglicana.Cada provincia se relaciona con las otras provincias dentro de la Comunión Anglicana por estar en plena comunión con la Sede de Cantórbery. El Arzobispo de Cantórbery convoca la Conferencia de Lambeth, preside la Reunión de los Primados y es el presidente del CCA.En algunas provincias anglicanas al primado se le llama arzobispo o metropolitano, mientras en otras se usa el término de obispo presidente o, como en Escocia primus.El Arzobispo de Cantórbery invita también a las reuniones de los primados a los moderadores que dirigen las iglesias ecuménicas unidas del Norte de la India, del Sur de la India y del Pakistán.En 1978, el arzobispo Donald Coggan, el 101º. Arzobispo de Cantórbery, estableció la Reunión de los Primados como una oportunidad para  “pausada reflexión, oración y consulta en profundidad”.Los primados se han reunido en Ely, Inglaterra, en 1979; Washington, D.C., en 1981; Limuru, Kenia, en 1983; Toronto, Canadá, en 1986; Chipre en 1989; Newcastle, Irlanda del Norte, en 1991; Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica, en 1993; Windsor, Inglaterra, en 1995; Jerusalén en 1997; Oporto, Portugal, en 2000; Centro de Conferencia de Kanuga, Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte, en 2001; Cantórbery, Inglaterra, en 2002; Gramado, Brasil, en mayo de 2003; Londres, Inglaterra, en octubre de 2003; Newry, Irlanda del Norte, en febrero de 2005; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, en febrero de 2007; Alejandría, Egipto, en febrero de 2009; Dublín, Irlanda, en enero de 2011 y Cantórbery en enero de 2016.Las provincias y primados de la Comunión Anglicana aparecen listados aquí.— Matthew Davies es director de publicidad y de la red de Episcopal News Service.

Anuvia at least one week away from resuming operations with wastewater…

Please enter your name here Both short and long-term resolutions are elusiveApopka City Administrator Glenn Irby disclosed additional details from Wednesday’s meeting between City of Apopka officials and Anuvia Plant Nutrient executives that do not paint an optimistic picture for the Zellwood-based fertilizer company to get back online with the wastewater treatment facility anytime soon.After receiving a Cease Discharge Order from the City on Monday, Anuvia has been shut down and seeking options. But at the conclusion of the discussion, they remained offline and had no clear timetable for a restart. “Today’s meeting was an encouraging step towards restarting service with the city of Apopka,” said Anuvia Chief Executive Officer Amy Yoder on Wednesday. “While a firm resolution has not been developed, many ideas were exchanged between the city, Anuvia and the Department of Environmental Protection. We look forward to working through these ideas to come to a resolution as quickly as possible, and we are exploring every solution available to Anuvia.” Irby concurred with Yoder’s assessment of the meeting, but also said that it would take time before Anuvia will be allowed to send waste to the plant. “Staff explained to those present (at the meeting) that Anuvia must reduce the chemical loading to the plant to equal the new numbers presented in the proposed new agreement between them and the City,” Irby stated. “We explained that we could not accept waste from Anuvia until the City’s plant returns to normal operations, which could be 10 or more calendar days (from Wednesday). Anuvia offered a variety of proposals to come back online. It is to-be-determined on whether or not we can come to an agreement on how and when Anuvia can resume sending waste to the City.”However, 10 or more days may be longer than Anuvia is willing to wait.“We are exploring every option to restart as quickly as possible,” Yoder said. “Including multiple options outside of Apopka.”Also undetermined is the new permit Anuvia will have to agree to if they are to continue once the wastewater treatment plant is stable enough to accept their waste again. However, it seems as though both sides are far apart in negotiations on that as well.“Staff’s position was that the elements of the proposed agreement are our minimum requirements,” said Irby.On Monday, Yoder seemed to say the new proposed permit requirements were too stringent for Anuvia to reach.“The parameters the city proposed are impossible to meet quickly,” she said. “They are significantly lower than what was suggested in the Woodard & Curran report, and I believe we will need to adjust those levels if we are to continue doing business with the City of Apopka.”However in her statement today (after the Wednesday meeting) it sounds as though the two sides are at least a little closer to a resolve.“There are multiple steps we believe will lower the levels, but we must run to test any proposed steps before knowing for sure,” she said.Irby also disclosed what happened at the plant over the weekend to cause the City to send the Cease Discharge Order to Anuvia. “The plant went into an upset condition over the weekend. It is not possible to say specifically what caused the disruption. Based on testing we’ve done and on the report of our outside consultant, it is our firm belief that elements of Anuvia’s waste stream arrived at the plant in such quantities that the plant is unable to process it.”He also acknowledged that Anuvia never broke its original permit parameters.  “The elements of Anuvia’s waste stream believed to be at the heart of the disruptions were not required to be measured in the original permit, nor were they required to be measured by the FDEP (Florida Department of Environmental Protection).”And while Irby and the City sympathize with Anuvia’s work stoppage, keeping the wastewater facility safe and stable is their priority. “We value Anuvia, and we understand the disruption this has caused to their business,” he said. “At the same time, the City has an obligation to operate its wastewater facility to protect the environment, the public health and the safety of our employees. Both the City and Anuvia must be mutually assured that Anuvia’s operation does not disrupt the City’s wastewater facility. We are open to discussing any and all realistic solutions.” But those discussions will have to wait. According to Yoder, future talks will happen, but a schedule will not be set until the wastewater treatment plant’s system is stabilized.

Burgess has been named on the bench for Friday’s opening clash against Fiji while three of his Bath team-mates have been selected by Stuart Lancaster in the backs.George Ford starts at fly-half, Anthony Watson is named on the right wing and Jonathan Joseph retains his place at outside centre for the Twickenham curtain-raiser.Yet Burgess, who saw Saracens’ Brad Barritt given the nod ahead of him at inside centre, believes there is more to England’s attacking threat than the quartet from The Rec.“It’s not necessarily the Bath brigade, we’re an England team now and that’s the way everyone looks at it,” said Burgess. “There are a lot of players from a lot of different clubs but we’ve stamped that out from day one. We’ll have to be a team to win this competition.“We’ve got a great balance within the squad and I think Brad was exceptional in (the Ireland game) last week and it’s the same with JJ (Joseph), his work-rate off the ball is unbelievable.”Rugby league convert Burgess admits his selection for the World Cup has justified his decision to leave the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2014.Reports this week linked the 26-year-old with a return Down Under, but Burgess says he’s focussed solely on the matter at hand.“There is no truth in it at all, I’ve not heard a word from Australia and I don’t know where it has come from but it’s definitely not true,” he said. “It’s not going to unsettle me before the World Cup, I’ll just put it to bed.“I’m thrilled to be in the World Cup squad. I dreamed of getting in this position. Once I made the decision to come over, one of my goals was to play in this World Cup. It’s here now, I’ve just got to get out there and do my bit for the team and for this country.“Sometimes you have a little bit of doubt, but you should never be scared of that. Doubt can sometimes be a driving factor but I always had belief that I could add something to the team. I’m thankful to be here now, and I’m looking forward to growing as an England player.”SSE Customers can win the chance to host the ultimate SSE Reward Rugby House Party on 31 October.

Sitting on an aggressively sloping site in the Crestwood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, the Jovanovic Residence combines a progressive and sustainable solution to an existing structure and addition. Through the utilization of a continuous foil wrap, various program elements including; a new guest suite, significant modifications to the master bedroom, exterior decking, and exterior facade, are synthesized together with a singular cohesive element.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemUsually used to shade vegetation and outdoor space from insects and bugs, this PVC coated polyester woven yarn was re-formulated to sustainably and programmatically cast a new identity and energy on the house. Separated from the existing stucco finish, the durable skin protects the house from solar abuse and heat gain. In addition, rather than following the form directly, the skin reduces the geometries of the existing house to simplified, planar shapes. The resultant forms create a powerful dialogue between existing and new space. At times privacy screening / guardrail / shading device, the skin embraces the house to create new found relationships between indoor and outdoor and public and private.Save this picture!Courtesy of lohaProject gallerySee allShow lessToyo Ito named 2010 Praemium Imperiale LaureateArticles48 Hours CompetitionArticles Share Jovanovic Residence / Lorcan O’Herlihy ArchitectsSave this projectSaveJovanovic Residence / Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects United States Jovanovic Residence / Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects Save this picture!Courtesy of loha+ 16 Sharelast_img read more

The project its about the rehabilitation of 141 doors: the opportunity to recycle 141 wooden doors which where recycle by the owner from an old warehouse. As result of this, the opportunity arises to generate an inner skin, which is capable of drawing spaces of different dimensions, expandable and reducible, as the leaves opens or closes from the heart of the house, putting light in and appropiating the patio in very different ways depending of the users desire. The house (the patio and its extensions), is a toy to be modified at any time and it adapts to the needs of privacy or continuity of its inhabitants, or to the needs of light, depending on the external climate, or the internal mood of the inhabitants. A continuous skin that allows the house to be constituted of multiple small spaces of the same nature, thanks to the continuity of this internal nature that the doors build (and their large and small openings that allow the passage of people and light), or to transform into a one single space that gives the occasion to party with friends, dinner for guests or evenings between the patio and terraces.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe rooms are built according to this internal nature found in their materiality and in relation to the different outdoor spaces: the central courtyard, which expands in height, the small backyard, which allows the opening to the Buhaira’s garden through San Bernardo’s school, or the terraces with which the facade is sculpted according to the application of the local regulations. … and the height of the plants is decided according to the size of the carpentry. According to this the play area is located, at the basement, where the two patios get undressed or come barefoot to the lowest and coolest area of the house. On the ground floor, rooms for work or for guests. On the first floor, the kitchen and the different rooms allows you to rest with family and friends: dining room and lounge. From this floor, the staircase, which is also a library, connects to the bedrooms, of parents and children (dressing rooms and bathrooms for each one of them) and above, where the staircase is transformed into a reading corner, is located the ascent to the attic, in which the machines required for the treatment of clothes hide in the furniture of the terrace, leaving the room free to be shared with this use, or be empty again to enjoy the company, the views of the roofs of San Bernardo and the nearby gardens.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaA house without corridors, in exchange, rooms available to be used in many ways, depending on the will, desires and needs of the users, thanks to the magical game that the doors allow … spaces for the valuable … SITUATION The house presents a privileged situation as it has a boundary on its north face, with the San Bernardo School’s courtyard which opens through this void, to the Buhaira’s Gardens. The project takes advantage of this opportunity by placing a small patio in that situation, thus introducing the garden and the sunrise, in the different rooms at the end of the house. The Patio is covered on the last floor trapping this important void that manages to decentralize the predominance of the central courtyard in these houses, to come into play with it through the doors and its possibilities.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaProject gallerySee allShow lessRenderforest Offices / Storaket Architectural StudioSelected ProjectsHefei BOE Hospital / HKSSelected Projects Share House 141 in Valme Street / Estudio Curtidores Lead Architects: Area:  453 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more
