The project embraces a conversion of an existing old house from the 14th century in Puglia, south Italy. The house was part of a so called “masseria”, a traditional farmhouse to be found in the countryside of Puglia and usually built in tufo, a local sandstone. In the past 500 years the masseria has been the center of production of apulian agricultural economy where most people lived and worked in the countryside producing wheat, almonds, wine, olive oil, milk and cheese. Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Pichler ArchitectsSanta Maria Al Bagno is a small fishermen village, district of Nardò in the province of Lecce, and it is located on the coastline of the Gulf of Taranto, Ionian west coast between Gallipoli and porto Cesareo. After world war II most people moved to towns leaving most masserias abandoned. In the past 5 or 6 years masserias have found new life as country hotels, museums and private residences.Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Pichler ArchitectsThis house is located on the top of a small hill and is oriented towards the sea. It consists of a small kitchen connected to the living room, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The house is surrounded by a handsome garden with classic mediterranean plants which expands towards east. Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Pichler ArchitectsThe most dominant feature of the old existing house were interior arches, that span the width of the rooms and are cut into the exterior walls as a kind of interior relief (old walls with a depth of almost 80cm at some points). The idea was to expand the arches in the exterior facade to provide light and direct access from each room towards the exterior space. Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Pichler ArchitectsThe characteristic Apulian architecture of the 11th–13th centuries reflects Greek, Arab and Norman influences were taken as inspiration for generating a pattern which was applied to 36 water-cut aluminium panels in the facade, used as sun shading elements and furthermore preventing against incursion. The pattern was developed with parametric techniques in order to test the density of the structure, which filters the amount of light in the interior space. It gradually changes and goes from an open thin structure to an almost closed surface, evoking a new interpretation of the classic arabic linear pattern. The constant play of light and shadow through the structure changes during the daytime and is inverted by night, ending up with the effect of a glowing facade.Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Pichler ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessDirichlet Modular Decomposition / Arthur TothArticlesLondon Vibe Cuboid / Ahmed ZayedArticles Share Year:  “COPY” Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Pichler Architects+ 21 Share ArchDaily Architects: Peter Pichler Architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2010last_img read more

Vermont gets $15 million Sandia energy lab

first_imgUniversity of Vermont,US Senator Bernie Sanders and Governor Peter Shumlin today announced a $15 million, three-year partnership with Sandia National Laboratory to establish a joint Center for Energy Transformation and Innovation to be housed at the University of Vermont. ‘I am very proud to announce that we are bringing a very significant national lab presence to New England, by establishing the Center for Energy Transformation and Innovation right here in Vermont,’ Sanders said. ‘It is our goal that this Vermont/Sandia partnership will lead to a long-term national lab presence in Vermont, and that our state and the nation can benefit from the research conducted here for years to come.’ ‘Vermont has served as a national leader on energy – in electric efficiency programs, in small scale renewable generation contracts, in net metering policies, and in implementing smart grid technologies statewide,’ Shumlin said. ‘This partnership with Sandia National Laboratories will further Vermont’s energy leadership, helping us coordinate and focus efforts to make the smart grid work here in Vermont, so that we can share our successes nationally to help build our 21st century energy infrastructure.’ The senator and governor were joined at a press conference by Sandia National Laboratory Vice President Rick Stulen, UVM President John Bramley, and Green Mountain Power Corp CEO Mary Powell. Sanders said one focus of the new center will be energy efficiency, a field where Vermont already is a national leader. The center also will work on sustainable energy, economic development and the implementation of so-called smart grid technology that will make Vermont the first state in the nation to provide nearly all energy consumers greater control over their power consumption. The seed was planted for a Vermont/Sandia partnership during a 2008 trip to the New Mexico research facility by Sanders, a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.   Today there are 17 national labs in the United States (but none in New England) doing cutting-edge research, providing skilled jobs and generating an economic boost for local communities. The center is a partnership between the state of Vermont, Sandia, UVM and other academic institutions, Vermont utility companies, Efficiency Vermont, and many Vermont green businesses.  In addition to UVM, other academic institutions participating in the project include Vermont Tech, Vermont State Colleges, Norwich University and Vermont Law School. Participating utilities include Green Mountain Power, Central Vermont Public Service, Vermont Electric Power Co., the Burlington Electric Department, Vermont Electric Cooperative and the Washington Electric Cooperative. BURLINGTON, Vt., Dec. 12, 2011last_img read more
