Bring on the cookies and milk! Wow, I was just watching tv news and saw the wreck that happened at 13th St. and Hawthorne Avenue in South Apopka. I had already read about the hit and run, but after watching tv news, I saw the royal blue car torn up in the wreck, and saw the car’s owner, the woman on tv, and that is when I realized it was the car that was stolen right out front of the Medicine Shoppe behind Chic-Fil-A in the Apopka Hunt Club area strip mall, that I wrote about here on the Apopka Voice, as I was right there when it was stolen, waiting on my meds at the same time the car’s owner was inside, and I was seated on the bench facing the storefront, and I did not see or hear whoever it was drive off stealing her car, and I felt bad because I didn’t see it happen or hear anything. I had hoped the lady would get her car back in one piece, but I see that isn’t the case…..the royal blue Mitsibichi Lancer. That Seminole sheriff deputy was right when he said they were probably headed to Apopka….. Stolen May 1, I think it was. Where was the car all this time???

That car sure looks totaled to me, and worse is, they got away running, a whole bunch of them, and almost cost another innocent lady in the other car they hit, her life, according to her son.

Strata SE1 is a 148 metre high 43‐storey residential tower that forms a dynamic new addition to the London skyline. The first building in the world with integral wind turbines, it also sets a new benchmark in terms of environmental strategy.Save this picture!© Will PryceRecommended ProductsCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD19Panels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural Solutions3D Facade PanelFloor LampsVibiaOutdoor Lights – EmptyThe client’s brief challenged the design team not only to develop a high‐rise residential concept that would kick start the Elephant & Castle regeneration but also to wholly embrace energy efficiency, targeting an EcoHomes assessment rating of “excellent”. The site was already identified for a tall building by the local authority as part of the Elephant & Castle SPG. The design is very specific to the scheme, its location and addresses considerations at both local and at wider city scale and context. With 408 apartments, Strata SE1 will be home to more than 1,000 residents. It offers a mix of market (310) and intermediate housing (98) in the form of shared‐equity affordable dwellings to satisfy direct local housing needs. 20 of the 98 affordable homes are reserved exclusively for residents relocated from the nearby Heygate Estate. The project team worked closely with client Brookfield and engineers WSP to refine the original scheme in terms of the core in relation to common spaces, with the use of post‐tension slabs further reducing slab thickness, enabling greater floor‐to‐floor heights, and to eventually develop a high‐ performance, three‐layer, aluminium‐and‐glass façade. The façade’s sculpted effect and range of glazing shapes allow a wide variety of views from the light‐filled apartments and help break up Strata’s overall sense of mass. Environmentally, the adoption of 200mm thick post‐tensioned concrete floor slabs and high strength blade columns saved over 2000m3 of concrete and 1800 tonnes of CO2. This CO2 reduction is the equivalent of emissions from energy that the apartments will use over four years. The language created by the façade adds a strong sense of hierarchy to the architectural order of this residential building. Hence, the overall form can enjoy a clearly articulated base, middle and top zone. At the base of the building, outer layers have been peeled back to reveal glazing and create transparency for the retail and entrance to the building. At the top of the building, a similar approach has been taken to reveal a crystalline apex; a top and side‐lit sky lobby provides access to the upper‐level apartments. Save this picture!© Will PryceThe main entrance looks towards the core regeneration area and the City and is signified by a 37‐ storey slot carved in the northern tip of the tower extending all the way down to ground level. This entrance is prominent and set back from the main pedestrian thoroughfare adjacent to Walworth Road, enhancing the sense of arrival. The double‐height lobby beyond allows for a gradual reduction in scale from outside to inside, further bridging the transition from public to private space. The central bank of three lifts faces the entrance, providing a clear and unambiguous means of accessing the upper levels and on reaching the residential levels, the lift lobby is at the heart of the building. There are no dark corridors on the residential levels and each flat is accessed via short entrance halls off the main lobby to individual front doors. The final configuration enlarged and defined a series of linked pedestrian friendly spaces at ground floor level, each with its own unique character, providing much‐needed permeability across the site. The orientation, scale, slenderness, articulation of its top and grain of its distinctive cladding are designed to both make their mark on the London skyline as well as create a strong sense of human scale that engages the public when viewed from close‐up.Save this picture!© Will PryceThe sustainability strategy created for Strata SE1 is to reduce the residential development’s total energy consumption through a combination of low energy design, integrated renewable energy generation and future allowances for connection to the planned E&C MUSCo (Multi Utility Services Company) district system, which will provide heat and electricity from Biomass CHP energy centres, grey water to all toilets for all affordable units within Strata SE1 and a connection to the site‐wide fibre network for high speed data access to all residents. Various low energy features incorporated into the Strata SE1 include bespoke high performing facade with an air permeability leakage rate that is 50% better than current building regulations; vertical district heating system utilising high efficiency, low NOx boilers; low energy lighting in all landlord areas and 40% of the lighting in each apartment. In addition, the three nine‐metre‐diameter wind turbines will provide effective on‐site renewable energy generation, which will feed directly into the landlords system and further reduce overall energy consumption to the building. The three turbines are rated at 19kW each and are anticipated to produce at least 50Mega Watt hours of electricity per annum or 8% of Strata SE1’s total estimated total energy consumption. Save this picture!© Will PryceThe concept of integrating technology was embraced throughout the design and construction stages. The use of sprinklers within all apartments, for example, enabled the omission of the standard fire‐ protected lobbies, creating more attractive, open living spaces. A further advantage was gained by the use of whole house ventilation systems with heat recovery, which reduced the size of radiators, allowing for more flexible space planning and improving the acoustic performance of the apartments, a challenge posed by the dense urban environment in which the building sits. Finally, 96% of all waste material was also recycled during the construction stage. Given that this was to be the first major scheme to come forward as part of the wider Elephant & Castle regeneration, the form and expression needed to be bold so that Strata SE1 could be a landmark in its own right, as well as be a catalyst for the ongoing regeneration of the area, which will in time feature a planned cluster of tall buildings.Project gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Paysages en Exil / Nicolas Dorval-Bory + Raphaël BétillonArticlesTraveltime International Workshop in TurkeyArticlesProject locationAddress:London, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

The proposed project responds to the described situation with a linear building structure along the Sensengasse and a free-standing, “point-house” positioned in an extended park.Save this picture!The linear construction, composed of three connected individual buildings, creates a membrane-like break between the park area and the urban space. In doing so, particular attention has been paid to permeability with paths and visual connections in the direction of the park on the one hand and the partly two-floor ground floor area forms part of the open urban space.Save this picture!These spaces with their views upon the surrounding greenery create a “green break” in association with the untouched and completely preserved tree avenue in the Sensengasse which fuse the façade of the garden and the airy opening of the “vertical green” together with the park to form one organic whole. The row of trees along the Sensengasse is taken up into the arrangement of the individual structures, so that the project reacts with sensitivity to the existing tree stock. The green area does not end at the perimeter of the property. Instead, it interweaves with the planted greenery of the old hospital, the sports ground and the school.Save this picture!Through the combination of a sensible development together with an eventful layout of paths through the area, it was possible to maintain the quality of this urban recreational area. The free-standing point house marks the construction’s boundary to the northwest and stands, as a result of the now clearly defined park perimeter, literally in the middle of greenery.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily 2010 Building of the Year Award: The WinnersArticlesAD Round Up: Refurbishment Part VArticlesProject locationAddress:Vienna, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Michelet 50 / Dellekamp Arquitectos Mexico Michelet 50 / Dellekamp ArquitectosSave this projectSaveMichelet 50 / Dellekamp Arquitectos Text description provided by the architects. The apartment building is situated in the centre of Mexico City, in the district of Anzures, indicating the urban character of the plot. According to the requirements of the client, we designed a building which features different apartment typologies divided into three blocks, giving more square meters of facade to each side. Common areas of the apartment community are contained in a single space looking outside to three facades. The building stands way behind the street line, giving space to create green zones in an urban district. Each of them surrounds and enters into the volume to become service areas. This idea became the main driving force behind the interior space design. A glass facade covers the irregular wall of the building to provide a unique appearance, also giving a character of unlimited connection between interior and exterior space. Just the horizontal framing marks the different levels of the construction.Save this picture!Meanwhile we were developing the project; the Mexican artist Jeronimo Hagerman installed one of his plastic art works in the Museum Sala de Siqueiros of Mexico City, using veining plants perfectly the ones we were thinking for the green areas. In collaboration with the artist, we kindly could insert the plants in the project, once finished the exposition; giving them a new utility.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Xi’an International Horticultural Expo 2011ArticlesRem Koolhaas Keynote for Festival of Ideas for a New CityArticlesProject locationAddress:Mexico City, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.
