Lake and landscape This unique semi-detached house is located in the community of Kastanienbaum (“Chestnut Tree”), not far from the City of Lucerne and on the shores of Lake Lucerne. In fact, the property abuts the lake at a woodland area mixed with oak, birch, chestnut and evergreen trees. Imagine the feeling of a stroll in the forest with its atmospheric interplay of light penetrating dense shadows, all leading to a flowering meadow; the goal of retaining this feeling played a major role from the project’s very conception.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiRecommended ProductsDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineThe new construction is being located in this picturesque landscape in such a way that only a minimum of the existing terrain is being taken for the actual building. From a concrete deck, a ramp ushers you to the building where a concrete overhang defines the veranda area; from there, a wide stairway leads into the forest. The new exterior space attempts to preserve the existing atmosphere and is covered with a thick grove of birch and cherry trees as well as hedges. The strong presence of the landscape reinforces the perception of living in nature. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiA captivating contrast between inside and out A continuous glass facade on the ground floor makes it possible for the inhabitants to enjoy a direct connection with their surroundings. Due to the building’s seemingly floating envelope, it virtually merges into the environment and thereby creates a clearly identifiable dual-purpose space: depending on how the wooden roller shutters are adjusted, the terrace becomes part of the interior or outdoor space. In this way, the open car port is able to become an enclosed garage. The interrelationship between the interior and exterior is further enhanced by the selection of colours and materials. Black-toned concrete and reddish cherry wood (Jatobá) contrast to nature’s shades of green. In optical terms, the interior spaces with their use of dark materials become inconspicuous, and the surroundings begin to glow depending on how the sunlight strikes them. The mirroring surfaces of the woodwork reflect images of the nearby trees into the interior spaces and further intensify the intimate bond the building has with nature. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiRamps as connecting elements The length of the building can be traversed using ramps. These spatial interconnecting elements lead from open living areas to private quarters. The ground floor receives morning sun from the east through the forest, and in the afternoon the sun shines from the west above the hills into the interior courtyard of the upper floor. This serves as a optical extension of the living spaces in the upper floor, and an outdoor stairway connects that floor to the roof level. The ramps invite everyone to experience the building as if “taking a stroll” and give those living there a feeling of openness and spaciousness. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiIntimacy and security From outside the property, the building does not attract attention at first glance. On the ground floor, strong reflections mirror the surroundings. The wooden roller shutters conceal any movement within the interior spaces. The floating concrete element is skilfully focused towards the insides. Only on the traverse sides are there any slotted openings, but there are no windows. The result is that there’s something mysterious, secretive and sensual about the entire building. The facades do not reveal the insides, so intimate moments remain very private, yet each interior room has a terrace-like outdoor space. Despite the large openings, the threshold to intimacy and security is preserved. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiVarieties of spatial character While the rooms in the ground floor are designed to maintain a close relationship to nature, terraces in the upper floor serve as a spatial filter to the surroundings. The openings in the facades offer selected views into the forest, so those living here enjoy a ever changing view depending on the season. The living spaces in the upper floor are alive thanks to the relationship with a rather introverted inner courtyard. On the sides, circular openings create a play of light in the courtyard, and the round perforations in the concrete allow you to experience the material’s thickness and dark colourations. The roof terrace, on the other hand, adds a completely different element to the quality of life and is equally accessible to both parties as a value added feature. In the summer, it can serve as additional living space with a generous view onto the lake and the mountains. The connection to the nearby lake is perceptible with all your senses. At night, the building and the black pool seem to dissolve within the darkness, and taking a swim under the stars becomes a special experience. Save this picture!planRooms slow down the pace of life The rooms are kept dark but are accentuated in spots with artificial light. The natural way light streams through the large front windows is gently softened by the absorption on the dark walls and ceilings, resulting in a subdued atmosphere of lighting. Bright, very colourful rooms are stimulating, while darker rooms project a mood that encourages retreat, peace and quiet. In these rooms, busy professionals can counteract their hyperactive workday by “slowing down the pace”. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiMinimalism with materials In these twin houses, only three types of material are used. First, the black-toned structural concrete is exposed at the walls and ceilings, while the terrace floors are made up of joint-free solid concrete. Next, the gleaming reddish and very hard cherry wood from Brazil (Jatobá) is used for all interior floors, the wooden railing on the roof terrace and the underside layers of the terraces as seen from the ground floor. Because this wood is of such high quality, this material can even be used as the shower floor in the bathroom. Finally, these first two materials are enhanced with built-in, gleaming anthracite-coloured woodwork. Thanks to the reflections it throws off, the kitchen and cabinets seem to dissolve into thin air. This composition of materials alone creates a comfortable mood and unique atmosphere in this space. The materials “vibrate” in tune with each other and take on an incredible glow. Save this picture!sectionTimeless architecture The structure making up the architecture, its shape, logical construction and functionality have all been developed specifically for this location and to enhance the lives of those living there. The harmonious interplay gives the building its identity. It has been created for specifically for this site and would not make sense anywhere else. Timeless architecture reaching beyond any momentary trends or unnecessary gimmicky shapes and forms – these are the aspirations we had in mind when conceiving the Kastanienbaum Twin houses.Project gallerySee allShow lessThink Space 2012 Programme: Past Forward CompetitionArticlesNew Housing for Researcher Workers / Praksis ArchitectsArticles Share Kastanienbaum Twin Houses / Lussi + HalterSave this projectSaveKastanienbaum Twin Houses / Lussi + Halter Area: 618 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Lussi + Halter Area Area of this architecture project 2011 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/231681/kastanienbaum-twin-houses-lussi-halter Clipboard Save this picture!© Leonardo Finotti+ 20 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/231681/kastanienbaum-twin-houses-lussi-halter Clipboard CopyAbout this officeLussi + HalterOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesKastanienbaum3D ModelingSwitzerlandPublished on May 04, 2012Cite: “Kastanienbaum Twin Houses / Lussi + Halter” 04 May 2012.

We emphasized the running game at halftime and ran the ball well in the second half.”Gabriel Grbavac was the defensive star of the game, as the junior defensive lineman had 3.5 sacks for the Golden Knights.Daron Derderian and Kristopher Jolley shared time at quarterback for Pasadena, but neither had a lot of time in the backfield.Derderian completed 6 of 11 passes for 23 yards and was intercepted by Daniel Scott, and Jolley was 5 of 12 for 38 yards.Steven Isip led Pasadena with 19 yards on five carries.Harrick, grandson of former national championship basketball coach at UCLA, Jim Harrick, finished with 106 yards and 13 carries, and Washington came on and gained 85 yards on just 8 carries, including his 32-yard score.“It felt good to get my first touchdown at this school and contribute,” Harrick said. “All I care about is doing my part to help us win games. Elijah and I make up a pretty good (combo) to run the ball and we’re good friends. If we do well, I don’t care as much who gets the ball. We’ll both do our jobs.”The game had more than 25 penalties, including two touchdowns that were nullified.Pasadena and its sideline were irate with the 15 penalties for over 120 yards on Thursday.Box Score:Pasadena: 0-0-0-0-(0)St. Francis: 7-7-0-21-(35)Scoring:SF: Jace Harrick 1 run at 0:23 1Q (Dulles Hanula kick)SF: Daniel Scott 22 pass from Michael Bonds at 7:55 2Q (Hanula kick)SF: Maxx Jakeway 3 run at 11:57 3Q (Hanula kick)SF: Elijah Washington 32 run at 9:22 4Q (Hanula kick)SF: Greg Dulcich 50 run at 6:39 4Q (Hanula kick) Offensive Leaders:Passing: Kristopher Jolley (P) 5 of 12 for 38 yards; Michael Bonds (SF) 6 of 18 for 86 yards, 1 TD.Rushing: Steven Isip (P) 5 for 16 yards; Jace Harrick (SF) 13 for 106, 1TD, Elijah Washington 8 for 85, 1 TD.Receiving: Jalen Jolley (P) 4 catches for 30 yards; Daniel Scott (SF) 3 catches for 66 yards, 1TD.

ABC News(MIAMI) — Hurricane Dorian is strengthening and taking aim at Florida, where residents and tourists are bracing for a possible Category 4 landfall on Monday afternoon.Dorian is forecast to make landfall somewhere between Melbourne and Miami, but everyone on the east coast of Florida is urged to be prepared for life-threatening storm surge, devastating hurricane-force winds and over 1 foot of rain.President Donald Trump said Thursday he would send Vice President Mike Pence in his place to Poland so he can monitor Dorian from Washington.The president further weighed in on the storm Thursday evening, saying in a short video posted to Twitter, “It’s looking like it could be an absolute monster. It does seem almost certain that it’s hitting dead center, and that’s not good.”“We’re all ready,” Trump continued. “And hopefully we’ll get lucky. But it looks to me like this time it’s heading in one direction. All indications are it’s going to hit very hard and it’s going to be very big.”Dorian, now churning in the Atlantic as a Category 1, could become a Category 2 storm by Thursday evening or early Friday, and then a Category 3 on Friday afternoon or Friday night.Dorian is expected to be a Category 4 hurricane with 130 mph winds on Monday.If Dorian makes landfall on Florida’s east coast with winds of 125 mph, it would be the strongest hurricane to hit the east coast of Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in every county due to the storm’s “uncertain projected path.”“All residents, especially those along the east coast, need to be prepared for possible impacts,” DeSantis said in a statement on Thursday. “As it increases strength, this storm has the potential to severely damage homes, businesses and buildings, which is why all Floridians should remain vigilant. Do not wait until it is too late to make a plan.”In Jacksonville, where water is already flying off the shelves, Mayor Lenny Curry said evacuations may be ordered, depending on which direction the storm moves.The threat goes beyond Florida.Dorian may bring dangerous storm surge to coastal Georgia as well as rain and wind to inland Georgia and South Carolina, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said Thursday.Kemp has declared a state of emergency in several counties.Dorian first tore through the Caribbean on Wednesday, blasting St. Thomas with powerful winds and more than 6 inches of rain.Dorian missed Puerto Rico for the most part, where many residents are still reeling from the devastation of 2017’s Hurricane Maria. The highest rainfall total on the island this week was 1 to 2 inches.“Thank God we were not affected,” Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez said Wednesday night. “All the determinations made in the last days were a real life exercise.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
During the geomagnetic storm of 1 June 2013 all‐sky imagers located at geomagnetically conjugate locations at Millstone Hill, USA (42.6 o N, 71.4 o W, 50.9o mag lat) and at Rothera, Antarctica (67.5o S, 68.1o W, ‐ 53.2 o mag lat) allowed us to measure a stable auroral red (SAR) arc simultaneously in both hemispheres for the first time. The arc measured in one hemisphere was observed very close to its conjugate location in the opposite hemisphere. While spatial characteristics, such as equatorward motion and latitudinal extent, were similar at both sites, morphological properties, e.g., arc brightness and shape of the poleward edges, differed. The overall brightness of the northern hemisphere arc was considerably weaker, by a factor of ~2‐3, throughout the night. Reduced magnetospheric forcing, in a short time interval between ~0345 UT and 0445 UT, led to decreased SAR arc brightness and reduced equatorward motion at both sites. A substorm occurring near 0500UT provided additional energization that increased the SAR arc brightness as well as the speed of the equatorward motion. These results provide evidence of a complex coupling between energy sources in the inner magnetosphere and the ionospheric receptor conditions within the sub‐auroral domain at opposite ends of the same geomagnetic field line.
