Rev. Stephen Lane, bishop of Maine and Province 1 vice-president, remarked: “The stewardship of our energy use opens us to the greater stewardship of our care for God’s creation. Our overuse of carbon-based resources to sustain our lifestyles not only threatens us with higher fuel bills, but also threatens the sustainability of all life on our island home.”As many churches have discovered, reducing energy use is a wise financial move. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that even modest projects like installing programmable thermostats, compact fluorescent lights and weather-stripping can reduce congregational energy costs by up to 30 percent.Dr. Letitia Naigles, chair of St. John’s (Vernon, Connecticut) Environmental Stewardship committee said, “We at St. John’s like to mix practical energy efficiency with committed caring for God’s creation. By investing in programmable thermostats and 117 energy-saving light fixtures, we cut our energy usage by 15-22 percent, saved over $1,000 per year on energy costs, and reduced our carbon footprint by 5 tons.”In 2011, the Province 1 bishops created an energy stewardship ministry to help more congregations develop and expand this work. The “Turn off the lights, for God’s sake” informational campaign is designed to directly reach out to churches to provide relevant stewardship resources. All congregations will get a mailing which includes The Episcopal Church’s guide for congregational energy stewardship, a getting started checklist, and “Turn off the lights, for God’s sake” stickers for light switches and other spots.The updated Province 1 website now offers a variety of online resources for congregations including:A forum to share success stories, ask questions and learn about other environmental ministries;A poll, to register a congregation’s intention to begin or expand this ministry;A Turn off the lights, for God’s sake poster;Listing of eco-justice organizations, state and local funding opportunities;Practical tips for energy audits: andA sample press release.The Rev. Stephanie M. Johnson, the Province 1 energy stewardship minister, noted that “As churches consider how to get involved, they are encouraged to remember that every effort, large or small, expresses gratitude for God’s bounty and our church’s commitment to be faithful steward of those blessings.” She continued, “Yes, even turning off a light can be a simple faithful act.”Johnson can be reached at [email protected] Rector Tampa, FL This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Foto de Lynette Wilson para ENS.[Episcopal News Service] En 1873, la Iglesia Anglicana construyó la iglesia de San Pablo, su segunda iglesia en Jerusalén, para servir a los cristianos árabes autóctonos, labor que realizó hasta 1948 en que la mayoría de los árabes huyeron a Jordania.Con excepción de un oficio especial en 1961, la iglesia —situada en la carretera Tribus de Israel, en la vecindad de una sección de judíos ortodoxos justo al oeste de la Línea Verde y a no más de un par de millas de la catedral (anglicana) de San Jorge en Jerusalén Oriental— permaneció cerrada.La “Línea Verde” se refiere a la demarcación establecida entre Israel y sus vecinos luego del fin de la guerra árabe-israelí de 1948. La frontera dividía en dos a Jerusalén: la parte occidental quedaba en el territorio de Israel, en tanto la parte oriental caía dentro del reino hachemita de Transjordania (más tarde Jordania), una situación que se mantuvo hasta la guerra de los Seis Días en 1967.En 2007 la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén decidió renovar y reabrir San Pablo (la iglesia se había incendiado en tres ocasiones), no porque la diócesis estuviera necesitada de otra iglesia, explicó el Muy Rdo. Hosam Naoum, deán de la catedral de San Jorge y canónigo pastor de la congregación árabe de San Pablo, sino porque su existencia comunica un mensaje importante.“Da una señal de esperanza y de luz y dice que la Iglesia está allí para velar por las piedras vivas y muertas”, dijo Naoum, y añadió: “Estamos aquí, vivos y presentes, y seguiremos estando”.La esperanza, dijo Suheil Dawani, el obispo anglicano en Jerusalén, mientras le mostraba la iglesia a la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori a fines de diciembre, es que se convierta en un centro para la reconciliación.Y la voz de los cristianos con frecuencia se tiene como de paz, justicia, perdón y reconciliación.Es la responsabilidad de los cristianos, dijo Naoum, “promover el amor propio y la tolerancia y el afecto mutuo para lograr que esto suceda”, lo cual la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén demuestra a través de sus 35 instituciones sanitarias y docentes, muchas de ellas en Cisjordania, Jerusalén y la Franja de Gaza.Las vivificantes instituciones diocesanas funcionan sobre el trasfondo del conflicto israelí-palestino que ya dura varias décadas, y la creciente emigración de la minoría cristiana en busca de una vida mejor y de oportunidades en el extranjero. Entre tanto el proceso de paz se ha atascado y los líderes israelíes y palestinos se culpan mutuamente por ello.Pero es con el apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal y de organizaciones como los Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén que los episcopales también pueden promover esa paz y esa justicia en Israel y los territorios palestinos.“La asociación que tenemos con la Diócesis de Jerusalén es no es solo un medio en que los episcopales y la Iglesia Episcopal pueden ayudar a responder al sufrimiento humano en otras partes del mundo, sino también una oportunidad de aprender del testimonio y de la abnegación radical de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén”, dijo Jefferts Schori.“Creo que es un desafío para todos nosotros, particularmente en el contexto de Estados Unidos, y también en Europa, ver la forma en que musulmanes y cristianos en particular viven y trabajan juntos y son miembros de las mismas comunidades”, agrego.La escuela episcopal de San Juan en Haifa es uno de esos ejemplos de comunidad: la escuela ha educado a generaciones de niños musulmanes, judíos y cristianos y ha sido oficialmente reconocida por el distrito escolar israelí no sólo por la alta calidad de su educación, sino por su proyecto de Educación para la Paz, que se empeña en crear conciencia entre los estudiantes acerca de sus derechos, el servicio a la comunidad y la resolución de conflictos.Haifa, la ciudad más al norte de Israel en el mar Mediterráneo, se destaca como un modelo de diversidad, en la cual judíos, cristianos, musulmanes, drusos, bajai y otros viven en cercana proximidad en comunidades integradas.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori y el primer ministro Salam Fayyad, de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina, durante una reunión en diciembre en la sede del gobierno palestino en Ramala. Foto de Lynette Wilson para ENS.A fines de diciembre, el tránsito se atascó en Haifa cuando cristianos, musulmanes y judíos salieron a las calles para conmemorar la “Fiesta de las Fiestas”, una celebración de festividades religiosas organizada por el alcalde de la ciudad y anunciada como un modelo de coexistencia pacífica en Israel.“Resulta claro que hay personas de buena voluntad en cada una de las tres tradiciones religiosas y en cada una de las entidades políticas, que quieren la paz, que quieren la coexistencia, los difíciles son los intransigentes en cada partido, de la misma manera que están en nuestro propio contexto”, dijo Jefferts Schori, reflexionando sobre su visita a Tierra Santa. La obispa primada visitó Israel y los Territorios Palestinos en Navidad y Año Nuevo a invitación de Dawani. Además de visitar las instituciones diocesanas, el viaje incluyó reuniones con dignatarios británicos y estadounidenses, con el primer ministro Salam Fayyad, de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina y con los líderes ecuménicos de las iglesias de Jerusalén (Haga un clic aquí para leer un artículo sobre el encuentro de la obispa primada con el patriarca griego).La vea anterior que la obispa primada había visitado Tierra Santa fue en marzo de 2008, antes del último gran conflicto entre israelíes y palestinos, cuando a fines de diciembre de ese mismo año los israelíes lanzaron tres semanas de ataques por aire y tierra en respuesta a repetidos misiles lanzados [contra su territorio] por los palestinos de Gaza. Unos 1.400 gazanos y 13 israelíes (cuatro de ellos por disparos hechos por sus propias tropas) murieron en los ataques.“Observo algún progreso desde la última vez que estuve aquí, tanto en lo económico como en lo político. Hay al mismo tiempo una sensación de esperanza y una sensación de desespero con los palestinos, que resulta muy comprensible. Creo que el problema sigue siendo que el gobierno de Estados Unidos debe encontrar un modo de convencer a los intransigentes de que se suavicen y encuentren una solución arbitrada. Los palestinos no están yendo a ninguna parte, los israelíes no están yendo a ninguna parte. Necesitan encontrar un modo de coexistir para su propia supervivencia, para la supervivencia de todos”, afirmó ella.La última visita tuvo lugar poco más de un mes después de la más reciente escalada de violencia entre las fuerzas israelíes y Hamás, el militante partido islamita de los palestinos que ha controlado Gaza desde 2007. Poco después del cese al fuego, la Asamblea Nacional de las Naciones Unidas —con el apoyo de 138 naciones— aprobó la admisión de Palestina como un Estado no miembro.Jefferts Schori viajó acompañada por el Rdo. Canónigo Robert Edmunds, encargado de la asociación con el Oriente Medio de la Iglesia Episcopal y ex capellán de Dawani; Alexander Baumgarten, director de la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal con sede en Washington, D.C. y el obispo James Magness, obispo sufragáneo de la Iglesia Episcopal para los ministerios federales.“Políticamente, creo que es un período de gran frustración en que el proceso de paz se ha estancado por muchísimo tiempo y no necesariamente da señales de reanudarse en algún momento próximo, particularmente mientras el liderazgo político estadounidense en torno al conflicto israelí-palestino siga siendo incierto”, dijo Baumgarten.Sin embargo, Baumgarten citó declaraciones y acciones recientes del gobierno de Obama como “señales de esperanza”.“Aunque los acontecimientos sobre el terreno parece que complican el futuro de la solución de dos estados, y las posiciones políticas de todas partes permanecen atrincheradas, podemos percibir esperanzas en el hecho de que el gobierno estadounidense recién electo ha indicado que desea dedicar nuevo capital político a la reanudación de negociaciones entre israelíes y palestinos”, dijo Baumgarten.Jefferts Schori se unió recientemente a otros líderes cristianos, judíos y musulmanes de Estados Unidos en advertir a la Casa Blanca y a los líderes del Congreso que “ha empezado a declinar la luz sobre la posibilidad de una solución de dos estados para el conflicto israelí-palestino” e instarles a un “inmediato y sostenido liderazgo estadounidense antes de que anochezca sobre las esperanzas de una solución pacífica” (La declaración completa puede encontrarse aquí.)La Convención General en julio de 2012, mediante la Resolución B019, expresó su “pesar por la falta de progreso en las negociaciones entre israelíes y palestinos hacia una justa y pacífica resolución del prolongado conflicto”; pidió el fin de la violencia y reafirmó el compromiso de la Iglesia “de una solución negociada de dos estados, en la cual un seguro y universalmente reconocido Estado de Israel viva junto a un Estado libre, viable y seguro para el pueblo palestino con una Jerusalén compartida como capital de ambos”.“Los episcopales pueden ser líderes en movilizar el apoyo estadounidense para una paz justa y duradera contando la historia de las iglesias cristianas de Tierra Santa y sus líderes, incluida la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén”, dijo Baumgarten. “Por irresoluble que pueda parecer la dinámica política en cualquier momento dado, los cristianos de Tierra Santa están sirviendo como puntos focales para una reconciliación tangible y significativa al tiempo que defienden audazmente una visión de paz que atraiga a personas desde los extremos a un lugar donde puedan encontrarse el acuerdo, el avenimiento y la paz con justicia”, dijo también Baumgarten.La resolución también llama a la Iglesia a apoyar “un estudio judío, musulmán y cristiano sobre la paz con justicia en el Oriente Medio” y a que la Iglesia Episcopal, y sus diócesis y asociados, se comprometan activamente en la disciplina de la promoción, la educación y la oración a favor de la paz entre israelíes y palestinos, así como la provisión de ayuda humanitaria que promueva la paz y la reconciliación, añadió Baumgarten.El Padre Loustinos, sacerdote ortodoxo que es el guardián y restaurador del Pozo de Jacob en la ciudad cisjordana de Nablus, y la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori durante una visita al lugar santo cristiano. El Patriarcado Ortodoxo Griego asumió el control del Pozo de Jacob en 1860. Foto de Lynette Wilson para ENS.Los episcopales, dijo Edmunds, pueden ayudar a la Diócesis de Jerusalén, orando por los cristianos que viven en Tierra Santa. “Ellos son los mayordomos de la fe; son los que mantienen las iglesias abiertas”.Para aquellos, dijo, que pueden hacer una peregrinación a Tierra Santa, es importante que, al volver a casa, compartan sus relatos y experiencias; la ayuda económica mantiene a las instituciones funcionando, lo cual es importante para mostrar que la Iglesia está viva y saludable y es “afirmación de la vida y edificación de la paz” y un símbolo de “esperanza” en un lugar donde la esperanza y la paz escasean.Es también importante, para aquellos que la visitan y para los que están interesados en edificar la paz en Tierra Santa, informarse respecto a las personas, la compleja historia y la política [del lugar], subrayo Edmunds.Un error común, por ejemplo, es que pese al hecho de que los cristianos han estado en Tierra Santa desde el primer Pentecostés, la gente tiende a pensar, sobre todo en Occidente, que los cristianos palestinos son musulmanes conversos, lo que no es el caso, puntualizó Edmunds.Los musulmanes y cristianos palestinos en Tierra Santa comparten idioma, cultura y costumbres y una historia paralela; es el auge del fundamentalismo entre cristianos, musulmanes y judíos y “la idea de la exclusividad, lo que resulta tan dañino”.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

To have been formally acknowledged is something not nothing. Gender bais and sexism was invented by the church. For it to be looking at it at all is simply an amazing work of the Spirit. We need to teach girls and women not to collude with the Biblical images of repression and submission to boys and men.

Rector Smithfield, NC Frank Harrision says: July 9, 2018 at 8:52 am “Equality” and “justice” are social concepts…that is, they are meaningful within certain views of reality and knowledge, our relation to those views and under that relation our relations to one another. For instance, these concepts were quite different in ancient Athens compared to what they are now growing out of the 17th century Enlightenment. The next point is this. Especially after the Protestant Reformation, just what common views about reality and knowledge do Christians have? Much more specifically, what sort of common views do contemporary Episcopalians have? The answer is seemingly this: Little to none. Oh, there is a lot of rhetoric with neat fuzzy undefined terms being used. So? What then, specifically IS this “equality” and “justice” common to the Episcopal Church? Youth Minister Lorton, VA July 10, 2018 at 8:21 pm What specifically are you referring to?

What else would they be? – though that does not mean they have no relevance for the church. In fact, as gifts of the Holy Spirit, they have more relevance than ever for the life of the church as we grow into a fuller realization of both the sins and the joys of the Body of Christ. Women have been treated, not only as second class citizens in the church (along with GLBTQ people), but as second class human beings (along with GLBTQ people). Surely in whatever way we chose to classify this, Jesus grieves over this. Do not diminish this work in any way. I led an “important” congregation through a process of learning and healing around this issue and was astounded to discover how many women, both in the church and in their personal and professional lives were effected by this scourge. One of my personal hopes and always my prayers is that when we begin to take women truly seriously, we will not forget our GLBTQ brothers and sister, though, through a life time of experience, I am afraid we will.

Photo: Melodie Woerman/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The House of Bishops on July 8 adopted a covenant that commits them to seek changes in their dioceses to combat abuse, harassment and exploitation.“The church as both community of faith and workplace is not immune to abuse, harassment and exploitation of people of varying gender, racial and cultural identities,” the bishops say in the document, which applies only to bishops, entitled “A Working Covenant for the Practice of Equity and Justice for All in The Episcopal Church.”The text of the document is available here.While calling attention to structures that work against people of all gender, racial and cultural identities, the idea of a covenant grew out of the stories shared in the “Liturgy of Listening” during General Convention on July 4. In that service, bishops offered laments and confession for the church’s role in sexism and misogyny.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves of the Diocese of El Camino Real said that after the Liturgy of Listening, it was clear that “there is no way we can do this and nothing more.”“Sexual abuse, harassment and exploitation are part of the system,” she said. “This is about acknowledging and accepting that.”The document reads in part, “As pastoral and prophetic leaders of the church, we bear the responsibility to continue the healing and transformational work that has yet to be fully realized.” The bishops also committed “to strive daily, transforming the culture of our church into a more just, safe, caring and prophetic place for all.”Gray-Reeves said she knows the bishops have good will and good intentions, but that alone won’t help them change systemic cultural issues within the church. “We need each other’s help to do that as a churchwide organization,” she said. The covenant is intended to do that.The covenant spells out ways the bishops can begin:Recognizing the power of their office and using it with humility in service of othersEngaging in self-examination and making changes in how they use their powerBeing aware of and listening to stories of people affected by biasesGiving space for leadership based on equityMaking room for a variety of cultural and gender-based ways of leadingSupporting a range of leadership modelsEliminating pay and benefit inequitiesCreating and enforcing equitable parental leave policiesHelping parish search committees to examine their biases as they make choices in the call of clergyDuring debate on adopting the covenant, Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe said that she had grown up in the Episcopal Church, and “sexual abuse and harassment has been as much a part of my life as Bible study and communion.” The elements of the covenant offer bishops “something we are all called to do as part of the Jesus movement,” she said.Bishop Greg Brewer of Central Florida said he looks forward to taking the document back to the women clergy in his diocese and saying, “Let’s talk. What do you think?”Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Gayle Harris said the covenant “lifts up that which has been an aspiration of this house.” As a woman of color, she urged bishops to uphold differences of all those made in God’s image and to work to end discrimination.After the covenant was adopted, Eastern Michigan Bishop Provisional Cate Waynick told Episcopal News Service that this was the first time in her 30-plus years of ordained ministry that the House of Bishops “actually decided to take a hard look at the way women have been treated.” She said her fellow bishops now are awakening to the pain and consequences of such treatment. Waynick is grateful that the bishops have agreed to ongoing conversation and to holding each other accountable, and as a result, “maybe our daughters and granddaughters won’t have to have these experiences.”Bishop Brian Thom of Idaho said the covenant invites “serious self-examination” and asks bishops to take steps to change themselves personally. He added that men of the generation of many bishops, himself included, can find it hard to change because “we are sure it’s not us” who are responsible for such pain and experiences. “But I have been convicted by sexism,” he told ENS.Washington Bishop Marian Budde, who also spoke to ENS, said that throughout her life in the church, women have taken it for granted “that we would be treated badly. We had to shrug it off.” But, she said, “This is not the way of Jesus. This is not the way of love.”Several bishops said they wanted to be sure the covenant was on the agenda of every meeting of the House of Bishops going forward. Bishop Audrey Scanlan of Central Pennsylvania said during the debate that plans are underway to create a toolkit to help dioceses create their own kind of listening events to begin the hard work that is needed. “Sexual violence, aggression, exploitation and harassment exist in our church. We can’t let that be the last word,” she said.— Melodie Woerman is director of communications for the Diocese of Kansas and is a member of the ENS General Convention reporting team.

The front façade and front roof form is retained and restored for heritage reasons and the remodeled rear form responds to cues found in the existing context and the previous dwelling which occupied the site. Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderThe new works are conceptualized as being enclosed by a skewed roof surface which demarcates the arrangement of interior spaces. In addition, exterior walling surfaces are envisaged to bring the outside in by creating feature panels and wrapping sections of the interior to create rooms and an interior courtyard.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!Ground FloorThe project draws no distinction between inside and outside. Full height glazing and louvers are used to let the house breathe and skylights are used strategically to maximize natural light to key areas stipulated by the brief whilst polished concrete and timber decking alternate freely from interior to exterior sections house.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Steven Holl and the Architectural ExperienceArchitecture NewsTower 41 / Taller de Arquitectura X / Alberto KalachSelected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officePivotOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAlexandriaHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAustraliaPublished on January 06, 2015Cite: “Alexandria House 2 / Pivot” 06 Jan 2015.

This vacation home in the interior of São Paulo was built for a family with two adult children. The project is divided into two main volumes, displaced from one another. The ground floor contains the entire social area, while the upper volume accommodates the more sheltered suites. The social area is fully integrated with the exterior, opening to the view of the golf course just ahead. In opposition, the side of the house facing the street is more closed, which guarantees privacy.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe upper floor has three suites. The master suite has an antechamber of its own, which residents can use as an office and intimate living room. The upper floor also has a gym and a games room, both with completely independent access. On the ground floor, in addition to the social area, there are two guest suites. A long piece of furniture, made of freijó wood, divides the dining room and kitchen, giving uses to both sides and creating an access corridor, which connects the entrance of the house to the end of the dining room.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe biggest challenge of the project was the execution of large swings and spans in a very slender structure. The solution was to use the spaces between floors to create inverted beams. The facade cladding of the house was executed in gray leaded aluminum, which allows little maintenance and differentiates the residence from the neighbors, as desired by the client. The monolithic flooring was also chosen for its beauty and practicality.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Facade 1Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe lighting project sought to be as pure and linear as possible, working mainly with indirect light, while landscaping sought to incorporate the existing vegetation of the condominium. The house also meets sustainable requirements. It has solar water heating, green roof, plastic wooden deck and cross air circulation, which reduces the need to use air conditioning, minimizing the impacts on the environment.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitect Transforms a Copenhagen Railway Depot into a Colorful PlaygroundArticlesNew Garage Screen Cinema Unveiled in Moscow’s Gorky ParkArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918519/jy-house-studio-arthur-casas Clipboard 2018 Photographs CopyAbout this officeStudio Arthur CasasOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureCasa de veraneioBrazilPublished on June 06, 2019Cite: “JY House / Studio Arthur Casas” [Casa JY / Studio Arthur Casas] 06 Jun 2019.

Double Roof House is located on a long lot of 4×17 square meters. The house is set back from the street to make place for a front yard, about 5 meters in length, which includes a drink stall – the family’s small business. There are only 3 members in the client’s family so the floor area is not too large. As natural ventilation instead of air conditioning is of priority to the client, a double roof system of corrugated panel is utilized, as it is light yet provides excellent insulation.Save this picture!© Thiết VũSave this picture!First and Second Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Thiết VũThe buffer gap between the roofs greatly reduces the heat flux into the house by convection. On the ground floor, the full-width front doors to the living room allow the expansion of the drink shop when necessary. The atrium is at the center of the house, and at the back there is one bedroom for the client’s mother who occasionally visits. Save this picture!© Thiết VũThe atrium, consisting of a staircase going around a carambola tree under a translucent roof, acts as a green core for the house. The master bedroom on the first floor has a large window reading nook that has view to the atrium as well as to the son’s study. To maximize living space and to afford the little son some amusement, his bedroom, the study and the common room are set on split levels.Save this picture!© Thiết VũThis in turn leads to two unaligned balconies overlooking the front yard. The design, though simple, has successfully addressed a micro-climate issue. The double roof system of the house has proven to work effectively, giving the family great comfort during summer days in Ho Chi Minh City.Save this picture!© Thiết VũProject gallerySee allShow lessSocially Distant Outdoor Yoga Domes Invade the Open Spaces of TorontoArchitecture NewsKCAP’s Dynamic Masterplan for Heidelberg, Germany Moves ForwardArchitecture News Share Double Roof House / Khuon Studio ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942178/double-roof-house-khuon-studio Clipboard CopyAbout this officeKhuon StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOn FacebookVietnamPublished on June 23, 2020Cite: “Double Roof House / Khuon Studio” 23 Jun 2020.

It is generally planned with 2 main wings with a swimming pool in between with the intention to break the building mass yet increasing the building perimeter for the vistas facing the golf course. By doing that, it also encourages more visual linkage and interaction between various spaces. The house is covered with a main roof including the pool area as part of requirements from client to enjoy it ‘all-weather’. A skylight covered garden courtyard is also introduced in the house to draw more daylight to the center of the house.Save this picture!© Eiffel ChongFenestration is designed thoughtfully to capture the breeze, induces cross ventilation and maximize the greenery vistas. At the same time, the pool also acts in evaporation cooling for the house. Hardwood timber strip flooring is used at semi-outdoor spaces and private enclave at upper floor to accentuate the warmth feeling of the house.Save this picture!© Eiffel ChongProject gallerySee allShow lessT House / MDA ArchitectureSelected ProjectsCuyperspassage / Benthem Crouwel ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Photographs Year: 2015 CopyAbout this officeHBOA (HB Ong Architect)OfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookKajangMalaysiaPublished on July 11, 2020Cite: “Impian Residence / HBOA (HB Ong Architect)” 11 Jul 2020.
