Camo House is located on a leafy residential street on the east coast of Singapore. Situated within a dense neighborhood, the building design represents the client’s love of the surroundings and the desire for a house that blends in and not stand out. The house is designed to ensure visual privacy of the residents with green design strategies in place to provide comfort and transform the living quality of the residents.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Aaron PocockAt the same time, the residents did not want to have the strong sunlight from the east and west-facing facades to penetrate deeply into the rooms, especially in the early mornings and late afternoons when the sea breeze comes through the neighborhood. Thus, these criteria became the parametric considerations when designing the façade. It comprised of a perforated aluminium screen where the details for different times of the day, and weather conditions were developed and determined with the use of software programs Igeo and Grasshopper.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockThus, an urban camouflage tactic was adopted, in which the foliage inspired double skin façade integrates with its surroundings. This foliage imagery is generated based on the pattern derived from a photographic montage of the surrounding trees and street-scape. On top of this graphic, it is mapped with the visual and climatic patterns derived from desired zones of maximum and minimum visual transmission and airflow.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockThe perforations of the double skin façade help to regulate the temperature of the step out decks and reduce the temperature of interiors. It is also designed to have the option of fully opened sliding doors for cross ventilation and semi-open options especially on humid or stormy days. The extent of perforation is controlled by the sizes of apertures, and they are angled to shield out the early morning and late afternoon sun. Thus the heat load and air conditioning of the house is minimized and cooling is accomplished through cross ventilation.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockSave this picture!Section A-ASave this picture!© Aaron PocockThe interior of the house is made up of a series of well-proportioned living spaces. On the ground floor, the living and dining room seamlessly open into a lush garden and lap pool, where a micro-climate is created by adopting a breeze block wall and landscaping. This wall is capable for cooling and privacy thus welcoming natural ventilation into the interiors allowing it to be used as a completely open space. Save this picture!© Aaron PocockThe family room on the second floor then transforms into a hospitality guest suite and the corridors become gallery libraries. Finally, the house opens onto the roof terrace with panoramic views of the neighborhood, with large planters of dense landscaping and trees, providing shade and helps to cool down the house in a tropical climate. Camo House is systematically connected to the environment through green design strategies. In time, together with the screen and trees of the street-scape, the house is envisaged to blend in to the environment and become part of the urban landscape.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockProject gallerySee allShow lessGinkgo Swan Lake Train Station NO.2 / Hexia ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort / WOW ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year:  Area:  560 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Flexform, Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Duravit, Kawajun, Mafi, Minotti, Poliform, Poltrona Frau, ACT 3D, Gessi, Omar Khan Rugs, Robert McNeel & Associates, Trimble Navigation, iGeo Camo House / WOW Architects Camo House / WOW ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCamo House / WOW ArchitectsSave this picture!© Aaron Pocock+ 23Curated by Hana Abdel Share Photographs:  Aaron Pocock Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/943769/camo-house-wow-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeWOW ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsSustainabilityOn FacebookSingaporePublished on July 16, 2020Cite: “Camo House / WOW Architects” 15 Jul 2020.

This house was built on a steep and small site. In order to provide a moderate footprint, and thereby limit the use of concrete for foundations, the building was designed tall and slim. The location of the building towards the western end of the site preserves the views of the neighbours behind, while also providing a warm south-facing garden, sheltered from the westerly winds. The slender building also provides a wide variety of rooms such that a family of five can spread out when needed.Save this picture!© Tom AugerSave this picture!© Tom AugerIn the uninsulated ground level area, there is parking and entrance as well as equipment storage and technical rooms. To make this area a pleasant space, outdoors but sheltered from the weather, daylight is let in via gaps along the building’s west- and east facades. In the innermost part of the ground floor space opens up to a five-meter high utility room for trampoline and ball games. This part has to floodlight so that you get a well-lit arena in the evenings and in the wintertime. In rainy weather, water flows down the concrete walls and out along drains into the ground. When the rain has ceased, the low sun warms up the concrete under the house and moist air is dried out through the gaps on the sides. This type of outdoor space increases the likelihood that children will choose outdoor activities and helps the family get through the sometimes difficult toddler phase!Save this picture!© Tom AugerSave this picture!Floor plan 01Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe building’s other functions are distributed on the three overlying floors plus a roof terrace. The first floor has a wardrobe, a laundry room, and two bedrooms. The staircase up to this level, as well as the wardrobe floors, are in oak, which gives good durability in the area where you wear shoes and boots. The staircase leading further up is in pine, which is soft to walk on barefoot. The first floor is built in framework, while the top two floors are built as a log construction. For this reason, the staircases, which rest on the framework, are constructed independently of the upper floors such that the log construction can compress, without being hindered by the static parts of the building.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe second floor is the building’s main floor with a kitchen, living room, and library. It is designed as a floating space with ample daylight from west, south, and east. Lighting and views change according to the different outlooks the rooms are facing. The tall windows in the living room face the scenic views of the Molde panorama with fjord and mountains to the south, the conservatory in the kitchen faces the sheltered garden to the east, while the library faces the close-up effect of a green pocket (white in wintertime) to the west.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe high window on the west wall of the living room provides a view of the sky and treetops from the sofa area. The window to the east in the living room has a flower box outside on the sheltered side of the building. The living room has double-height and serves both as a banquet hall and also catches and stores the sun´s energy during the daytime. In the spring and autumn when the sun is both low and strong, the family can retreat to the kitchen and library in the daytime, while the inner log wall is warmed up by the sun and stores heat for the night.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe third floor has a bedroom and a bathroom as well as a gallery as part of the library. There is also a Romeo and Juliet balcony towards the living room for home stage performances. From the gallery, you can proceed to the roof terrace for extra evening sun, starry sky, and northern lights. The upper bedroom window has shutters designed to provide visual shelter from a footpath northwest of the building, as well as letting in the morning sun.Save this picture!© Tom AugerIn the exterior, the facades are separated between fronts and ‘sides’. The fronts have standing panels and a higher degree of articulation, while the sides have horizontal panels and a more sober articulation. The south facade has two fronts whereas the western one is slightly lower to shield the ground floor from predominant southwesterly rain. The library has its front facing the green (white) pocket to the northwest, while the kitchen has its front towards the garden. For the northern facade the details, like the window shutter and the dovetail notch corner, are more prominent than the composition as a whole. In this way, it’s a typical rear of a building.Save this picture!© Tom AugerWhat one attempts to achieve in differentiating the facades in this way is, first, that the building can be read as four volumes rather than one, thus softening the otherwise rigid rectangular prism effect, and secondly, the fronts gives an external indication of the inside rooms’ directions. The moderate contrast between the fronts and the sides, as well as the unison use of material and colour makes this distinction not too obvious. Somewhat more surprising in the final result is that as an expression the building lies somewhere between a collection of your grandmother’s cupboards and traditional Amsterdam houses placed, in a sharply carved meadow!Save this picture!© Tom AugerProject gallerySee allShow lessPalacio Pereira / Cecilia Puga + Paula Velasco + Alberto MolettoSelected ProjectsSJ Building / Takao Shiotsuka AtelierSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/955358/zieglers-nest-rever-and-drage-architects Clipboard Houses CopyHouses•Molde, Norway Photographs Area:  152 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Year:  Architects: Rever & Drage Architects Area Area of this architecture project Zieglers Nest / Rever & Drage ArchitectsSave this projectSaveZieglers Nest / Rever & Drage Architects CopyAbout this officeRever & Drage ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMoldeOn FacebookNorwayPublished on January 25, 2021Cite: “Zieglers Nest / Rever & Drage Architects” 25 Jan 2021.

Casa FG is a dwelling of 420 m2 total located in private urbanization in the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It’s established on a plot of approximately 1,050 m2 with views of a central lagoon. The house is articulated through a central double-height space that organizes the main path and allows the architectural space to open up, visually integrating its different areas and the environment. With a simple diagram floor, it seeks to generate different sensations through the tour. Taking as fundamental premises of the project: the orientation, the visuals, and above all the search for the limits between exterior-interior to be diffuse, internal courtyards were generated around which the spaces of the house are articulated. The project is developed on two levels with very different uses.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe first level is articulated with the service areas in front, the social areas in the center of the house, and a rear gallery that covers the entire width span of the house. In line with the services is the large central yard that merges with the double interior height providing natural light through the large windows. Also, the yard generates privacy from the street through a “green curtain” of imposing plants, allowing to lengthen the view and add cross ventilation to the living-dining room. The interrelated social areas (kitchen – dining room) open generously to the green areas of the house and are fully integrated into the gallery. The second level is dedicated to the private areas of bedrooms and family living. The circulation of this floor leads to the large central double-height, thus generating visuals and interesting spatialities of the route.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe owner’s request for a “zero maintenance,” house, the idea was to use noble materials that maintain their properties over time pass. Corten steel was thought to materialize the façade of the upper level. This one covers the upper level through a combination of blind panels and parasols that allow light to enter, generating a play of lights and shadows projected inside the house. The exposed Concert plays an essential role and coexists perfectly with corten steel. Board concrete was used in the partitions and smooth formwork in perimeter beams and slabs. In the large concrete partitions, tensioners are hidden to support the gallery from the upper floor (avoiding columns that obstruct the views of the lagoon). With this project setup, clean, seamless visuals are achieved from all common areas on the first level. Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Plan – Upper floorSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe architecture studio was also in charge of the interior design project.

The site was also displaying a number of donated adverts for the beneficiary charities.Blakeley told UK Fundraising: “as I am trying to help other charities, not just my affiliates, then the first 20 charities to submit a completed application form will receive a free 20 box advert to put their logo in.“As people can vote for who receives a donation then having the charities’ logo on there can help them receive votes and also promote both their charity and website.” TickettoaMillion.com is the latest effort to emulate the success of Alex Tew’s milliondollarhomepage.com, but takes a different approach by attempting both to raise $1 million for charity and to give visitors to the site the opportunity to win $1 million. The website is trying to generate this money by selling advertising spaces to “family friendly” and ethical companies.The site has been set up by London-based 25-year-old graduate Michael Blakeley. He has selected five beneficiary charities: FARM-Africa, Hope for Children, Peace Direct, Sense, and The Institute of Cancer Research, each of whom will receive $100,000 if the website is successful.

However, in unavoidable circumstances, where obtaining of prior direction is not feasible, such order may be issued by an officer, not below the rank of a Joint Secretary to the Government of India, who has been duly authorised by the Union Home Secretary or the State Home Secretary, as the case may be.Sub Rule (2) provides that the order issued by the competent authority under sub-rule (1) shall contain reasons for such direction and a copy of such order shall be forwarded to the concerned Review Committee latest by next working day. Now the latest amendment adds the following Sub Rule 2A: “(2A) The suspension order issued by the competent authority under sub-rule (1) shall not be in operation for more than fifteen days.” Notably, the orders suspending 4G internet services in Jammu and Kashmir were also issued invoking powers under Rule 2(1) of the Temporary Suspension of Telecom Services (Public Emergency or Public Safety) Rules, 2017.Effect On Restrictions Imposed In J&K Earlier this year, the Supreme Court had directed the Jammu and Kashmir administration to review all orders of restrictions imposed in Jammu and Kashmir post the abrogation of the state’s special status. The court had held that an order suspending internet services indefinitely is impermissible under the Temporary Suspension of Telecom Services (Public Emergency or Public Service) Rules, 2017 and that the suspension can be utilized for temporary duration only. In August, the J&K administration restored 4G internet in two districts – Ganderbal and Udhampur- while restricting the internet speed as 2G in the remaining districts.The restrictions were extended from time to time. The latest extension came on October 21, as per which the speed restrictions in districts except Ganderbal and Udhampur were extended till November 12.Click here to Read/Download NotificationRead NotificationNext Storylast_img read more
