The entire surroundings were, for decades, an industrial area dedicated to sardine and tuna canning. In these old and sometimes derelict sardine factories, lies a significant part of the Matosinhos collective memories.From a solid and representative industrial unit rises the outer limit of the building itself. The material used in its construction, concrete and zinc corrugated sheets on facades, will throw us directly to the memory of its predecessor. For years the work of Eduardo Chillida has been amazing me for its simplicity. Showing sceneries by simple abstraction of solids. From an undivided and opaque bloc he works solids out that allow possible visual architectural views. A subtlety of action will define the same creation and definition of typologies, by subtracting matter to the original bloc. By clipping out and moving backwards the glass panes for the windows thus making visible the sub division of the apartments themselves, rhythm and individuality is created. Rooms, lounges, kitchens are visible.

Presence. The slabs mark horizontal divisions for the floor levels. All windows return light back to the inside of the original block. From the outside, we become aware of some typologies for the apartments. Some don’t require privacy, some blatantly do, and again a rhythm of elements is imposed on the façade to hide dwellers. From the original study of the building, a separation of the slabs stands out, marking a certain horizontal feel to an otherwise tall building. The contact with the ground floor commercial spaces is thought again. A closer connection to the passers-by is intended. After some initial concern from the clients of the building in selling or renting out conventional commercial spaces in the area, a new attitude is taken, where real stages are created for the pieces to sell. Display windows that act as shelves for items, turning them into immediate actors of a show that happens, as well, on the inside. What you see is less important than what is hidden. Curiosity springs. Save this picture!Creating the suspended concrete boxes that present goods on stores, has proven helpful in marking entrance spaces, several, on a rhythm that defines also, vertical access to the apartments. Contrary to usual, this rhythm is found through an odd number and the dimension of the said openings. The common entrance and distribution areas are, themselves, a reflection of the choices for the rest of the materials in the building. Also, a light rhythm is created from a formula seen on the ground floor façade. These are embedded in the walls. The floor is covered, not with conventional ceramics, as often happens in the area, but rather, with a self leveling pavement that eco’s memories of a long lost industrial past of this city. Save this picture!Typology wise, and because the market demanded so, three types of apartments were developed, with the exception of the last floor where these develop into duplex, double floor spaces. Some social conditionings spring at this point. The need for a more contemporary use of conventional spaces, such as the kitchen, the lounges and dining rooms, all come together into a sense of equality. Some gain roles and others are pushed to more discreet areas. The laundries, for instance, are set back to the proximity of the rooms, which, eases the transport of dealt clothes. On the south façade of the building, the internal organization of stairwells and entrances pushes the kitchens to the façade, making them as lead role as a Lounge, or a Dining Room. Save this picture!From a study case in adaptable interiors, all the typologies of the apartments were developed. Sliding doors, panels and walls, adapt the inside of apartments to better meet the need of the owners. For commercial purposes, some apartments don’t present this feature, having the future owners intervened in a sense of achieve vast open spaces, with little closed spaces. From a very basic and truly commercial need to create a building to retail and sell as individual apartments, a pioneer project was developed for Matosinhos, in the sense of its Commercial Planning. Aesthetical needs can, after all, subdue commercial impulses. Despite all restrictions and containments in creating architecture, as Tschumi mentions, here present in a state of real estate speculation, we can all hope for such projects that return us the joys of urban living.Project gallerySee allShow less2009 Open Architecture Challenge: ClassroomArticlesSongdo IBD / Kohn Pedersen FoxArticlesProject locationAddress:Matosinhos, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

House OM1 was conceived as a solution that balances two different concepts. Initially, there was a need to create a space where modern-day activities such as intimacy or leisure are sufficed. Another requirement was for the house to have an old-fashioned aesthetic where wood and stone were the main materials used. It stands out as a unique project from the ground up. The plot conditions were distinctive, it had a pronounced slope that culminated in cliffs several meters high. It was built one level below the street level and the entrance was designed as a stairway transitioning from the street noise to the quiet beauty of the house which is slowly revealed as one walks down.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Lorena DarqueaIt was designed to be in constant contact with nature, with two patios and one garden that allow the users to be surrounded by nature. The first patio is placed along the entrance stairway; the second and most important is a patio placed at the center of the house, functioning as a nucleus that unifies the ground floor with the second floor. This central patio is brimming with vegetation, the rest of the house revolves naturally around it: the lining room, dining room, and kitchen; these spaces connect with the backyard also filled with vegetation, a deck, and a pool.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaHouse OM1 was built over a base made of a coppery stone brought from Chapala, Jalisco that helps create an old-fashioned aesthetic and enhance the sensation of heaviness in the house that reminiscences of grounding your feet into the sand. The second floor is surrounded by windows that allow the users to enjoy the views of the backyard and the cliffs. Natures presence is obvious in every space, even in the most intimate ones, giving a feeling of safeguard, comfort, and relaxation. Dark-wood finish and the brick walls help reinforce the feeling of coziness inside the house. It is a space where the users can relax, be their true self and leave any preoccupation at the door.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!© Lorena DarqueaProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitectural Adventures: Vibrant ViennaEventMarina Abramovic Responds to Allegations of Misuse of Funds over Scrapped OMA-design…Architecture News Share Houses HOUSE OM1 / AE Arquitectos Photographs: Lorena Darquea Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAE ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsGuadalajaraMexicoPublished on November 16, 2017Cite: “HOUSE OM1 / AE Arquitectos” 16 Nov 2017.

In one case this week, a journalist was beaten by police and detained for 48 hours.“We are disturbed to see that the media have continued to be subjected to physical attacks, threats and harassment since the international fact-finding mission to Nepal in February,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The leading political parties gave clear undertakings in February to respect journalists’ freedom and safety, but none of the pledges have been kept and the parties are paying little heed to journalists. Nepal’s political leaders and the ruling Maoist Party in particular must repudiate such actions and ensure they are punished.”Police violenceBimal Bista, a reporter for the newspaper Samacharpatra, was covering a dispute between residents in Dipayal, in the western district of Doti on 23 August, when he was arrested and bundled into a police vehicle. After being beaten by police officers in the vehicle, he was detained for 48 hours without charge.Jaya Narayan Yadav, the treasurer of the Bara chapter of the Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ), and Sagarmatha Television reporter Ramesh Subedi were verbally abused and forcibly ejected by deputy police superintendent Ram Prasad Das when they went to his office in the southern city of Birgunj on 16 August seeking an interview. Das accused Yadav of writing reports that put him in a bad light.Violence by political partiesMembers of Madhes Tarai Forum (MTF), a Tarai-based political party, intercepted a vehicle belonging to Kantipur Publications on 23 August in Rajbiraj, the capital of the southeastern district of Saptari, removed the 15,000 copies of three Nepali-language newspapers it was carrying – The Kathmandu Post, Kantipur and Nepal Weekly – and burned them in the street.The head of the local MTF branch, Shyam Narayan Yadav, took responsibility for the torching of the newspapers and accused them of ignored his group’s demands, local press reports said. According to the Himalayan Times, Yadav wants Hindi to be adopted as the official language in the Tarai region.Journalists Prakash Chandra Pariyar, Aneel Kshetri and Bhuwan KC of Kantipur TV were manhandled by members of the Tarai Madhes Democratic Party (TMDP) and forced to leave while covering scuffling between party members and youth and sports minister Ganesh Nepali on 11 August. Videotape was taken from a camera.Members of the local branch of the ruling Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist) forcibly prevented more than a dozen journalists from covering a training session for party members in the northern district of Makawanpur on 1 August although the media had been invited to attend.Hardly a day goes by without an attack on the media in Nepal. The FNJ says there were 342 press freedom violations in 2008, with a significant increase in physical attacks on journalists and media premises. May 17, 2019 Find out more

The association estimates 2.2 million homeowners are in forbearance plans.Broken down by type of loan, MBA reported:The share of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans in forbearance decreased 10 points to 2.32%.Ginnie Mae loans in forbearance decreased 20 basis points to 5.82%.Portfolio and private-label securities (PLS) loans remained unchanged at 8.55%.Independent mortgage bank (IMB) servicers decreased 12 basis points to 4.58%.And the percentage of loans in forbearance for depository servicers declined 15 basis points to 4.47%.”The pace in the declining share of loans in forbearance quickened in the last week of April. This 10th week of decreases reflected a faster rate of exits and a steady, low level of new requests,” said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s SVP and Chief Economist. “Homeowners who have exited forbearance and been able to take up their original payment again are performing at almost the same rate as the overall mortgage servicing portfolio.”Added Fratantoni, “More than 47% of borrowers in forbearance extensions are past the 12-month mark as of the end of April. Many homeowners continue to struggle and are falling farther behind on their obligations each month. We expect that a robust economic and job market recovery over the next several months will help these families regain their jobs and their incomes.”The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently issued two reports showing that more work needs to be done to help mortgage borrowers coping with the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn. The first, “Characteristics of Mortgage Borrowers During the COVID-19 Pandemic,” documents that Black and Hispanic mortgage borrowers are far likelier to be delinquent or in a forbearance program than white borrowers. In a second report, the CFPB reports that overall mortgage complaints to the CFPB have risen to their highest level in three years.“More borrowers are behind on their mortgage than at any time since the height of the Great Recession,” CFPB Acting Director Dave Uejio said last week. “Communities of color have been hit hard by the pandemic, and the latest data show that many borrowers are still hurting. The CFPB will continue to seek and actively respond to developments in the market, doing everything in our power to help families stay in their homes. As we warned mortgage servicers last month, unprepared is unacceptable.”In order to prevent the windfall of foreclosures that may overwhelm servicers, the CFPB also proposed a number of actions and continues to seek input on new proposed rules.
