The MeMo house, which was built on a plot in San Isidro, in the northern part of the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was conceived on the premise of a client who is passionate about landscaping and has a strong conviction regarding sustainability and the environment. The premise was to develop a project in a plot between infill buildings while reducing to the maximum extent possible the loss of green spaces due to the construction of the house.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasWith such a concept in mind, we at BAM! decided to work on architecture and landscape simultaneously. The square meters of the building footprint turn into a three-dimensional garden which connects all the architectural floors.Save this picture!PlansThe morphological design is born as a result of the commitment not to waste square meters of vegetal soil, on the one hand, and of the idea of having a light entrance through a patio, on the other hand, since it is a plot between infill buildings. Such a layout generates a topographic play with a system of green ramps that connect the zero level with the first floor and the cover, thus creating a continuous garden terrace.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasMeMo is a project in which the architectural path plays a decisive role, since we have to bear in mind that the habitual and occasional users are offered a sight show. Such a show is not only a fixed image, but rather a series of images that overlap, and each frame of the scene has been carefully thought.Save this picture!SectionsSave this picture!SectionsWe conceive the sustainability of the project as a path, not as a goal. Hence, we base our path on the LEED standards and we incorporate the concepts of durability and economy which are fundamental in our architectural works, thus satisfying the needs of the present generation without endangering the possibilities of future generations since the impact on the environment and its inhabitants is significantly reduced.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasFirst of all, we approach the path of sustainability by choosing a sustainable lot where the owner can perform most of her activities on foot or on a bicycle, and she can also use native vegetation in her gardens and covers, thus restoring the natural landscape and reducing rainwater effluent.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasThen we began the design with a bio-environmental impression, taking special attention to every detail of the project, from the location of the plot, its orientation, the morphology of the volume built with respect to the sun’s path and its impact on the different spaces to make the most of the solar energy, the strategic location of native vegetation and the choice of insulating materials of the architectural envelope.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasOnce we determine the volumetry of the building, we begin with more specific interventions. Starting by the efficient use of water through efficient wastewater technology, and by reducing water consumption using rainwater for the irrigation of native vegetation, which has a minimum hydration requirement.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasAs regards energy efficiency, we have solar panels not only for the supply of electric energy but also for the power for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. We also add the adequate windows with DVH-type glasses which increase thermal insulation. Both of these measures allow us to reduce energy consumption.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasProject gallerySee allShow less11 Projects Win NYC Public Design Commission’s Excellence in Design AwardsArchitecture NewsRCR Arquitectes to Design Catalan Pavilion at 2018 Venice BiennaleArchitecture News Share Architects: Bam Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•San Isidro, Argentina Projects Photographs MeMo House / BAM! arquitecturacenter_img Area:  215 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Jeremias Thomas+ 36 Share Photographs:  Jeremias Thomas Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/870793/memo-house-bam-arquitectura Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/870793/memo-house-bam-arquitectura Clipboard Year:  MeMo House / BAM! arquitecturaSave this projectSaveMeMo House / BAM! arquitectura “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBAM! arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan IsidroArgentinaPublished on May 12, 2017Cite: “MeMo House / BAM! arquitectura” [Casa MeMo / BAM! arquitectura] 12 May 2017.

first_img Read Full Story On September 25, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, a new global agenda to replace the Millennium Development Goals. The 17 new goals include 169 targets to be met over the next 15 years in such areas as ending poverty, improving gender equality, and taking action on climate change. Aaron Bernstein, associate director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, recently answered three questions about the SDGs.A number of the goals and targets broadly touch on environmental policy, particularly goal #13: “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.” Are these sorts of lofty goals helpful?The SDGs reflect humanity’s best intents and reflect a deeply thought-out agenda on what we need to do to make the planet as healthy as it can be. And, they call us to really strive for worthy ends.Many people may criticize the goals because they are broad, lofty, and sometimes a bit unspecific. But, if nothing else, they provide an important point of reference.I’d argue that the underlying motivation of the SDGs is to ensure the healthiest possible future for ourselves and our children, and that really goes to the core of what we do at CHGE.last_img read more

first_imgThe Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) has launched the nation’s first offshore wind training facility.The facility includes a crew transfer training vessel (CTV), which supports safety training for workers moving from relatively small CTVs to the fixed support structures of offshore wind turbines.Initially, MMA will focus on Basic Safety Training for the industry with a course comprised of First Aid, Manual Handling, Fire Awareness, Working at Heights, and Sea Survival.Some of the training will take place in MMA’s newly constructed indoor climbing facility and on the crew transfer training facility located on MMA’s pier in Buzzard’s Bay.According to the government, the facility will also support the construction and operation of the 800MW Vineyard Wind offshore wind project.“As Massachusetts heads toward building the first large scale offshore wind project in the nation, we are pleased that Massachusetts Maritime Academy will be home to this first-in-the-nation training facility,” said Governor of Massachusetts Charlie Baker.“With important training infrastructure like this crew transfer facility, thousands of students and trade workers will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to be a part of the growing sector of Massachusetts’ nation-leading clean energy industry and can take advantage of the highly-skilled jobs created by this emerging industry.”The training facility, which received a total of USD 1.73 million from the Administration and Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), will provide education, training and certification to residents, including Mass Maritime cadets, as well as skilled labor including electricians, pile drivers, divers and welders.The project is a partnership between Mass Maritime, state government and industry, including Vineyard Wind, while Relyon Nutec joined as the GWO training provider.last_img read more
