The house is used as a holiday home by a single person, who often invites guest to stay. It needed to be a space that could be used as a controlled studio with the feeling of being open, as well as to be able to morph into private and individual spaces when the house is full of visitors.

The design intent is applied by framing views towards the sea (rooms) and opening up spaces (terraces) to look up at the mountains. Save this picture!© Wieland GleichThe concept rests on creating a subtle journey through the open spaces and through the interior that constantly glimpses at the landscape and merges within the Architecture that never reveal the entire building in one instant. Save this picture!SectionsIn order to allow all rooms in the front of the house proximity to the sea, and to bring fresh air, light and circulation into the back of the house, two glass walled courtyards were introduced on the ground floor. One courtyard, built around the passage, connects the bedrooms and the other one is built inside the main bedroom as part of the en suite area. These two courtyards are reflective of sea views. Save this picture!© Wieland GleichThe use of neutral and natural materials is the response to the desire of bringing the outdoors inside, achieved by contrasting the exuberant landscape with the ‘blank canvas’ of the interior. The ultimate concept of luxury is the constant extending and opening of the inside spaces to meet in full the unique and exquisite South African climate.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / WEAVA ArchitectsArticlesThe Grove / Debartolo ArchitectsArticles Sharelast_img read more

H1N1 BREAKING NEWS: Pregnant women, parents polled, Chinese officials discuss quarantine, WHO to probe antiviral use

first_imgPregnant women bear disproportionate share of flu deathsAbout 6% of pandemic H1N1 deaths in the United States have occurred in pregnant women, though they make up just 1% of the population, the Associated Press reported today. The numbers are based on 266 detailed death reports that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has received. Fifteen deaths occurred in pregnant women. The CDC’s vaccine advisory committee meets tomorrow and is expected to list pregnant women among the high-priority groups to receive the pandemic H1N1 vaccine.Poll shows parents likely to seek H1N1 flu shots for kidsAn Associated Press/GfK Roper poll suggests that about 63% of American parents are likely to allow their children to receive the pandemic H1N1 vaccine, but only 51% of adults would probably receive the immunization themselves. Only 43% said they were concerned that they or a family member might contract the new flu virus. The telephone poll, conducted in mid July and released yesterday, included 1,006 adults, of whom 296 were parents.[AP-GfK flu poll report]Chinese officials say their policy of quarantining foreigners is workingChinese authorities assert that their aggressive quarantine policy to prevent foreign visitors from spreading H1N1 flu has worked well, according to a New York Times report. Officials say China has had few cases and proudly note that no deaths have been reported. But the newspaper tells the story of an American woman who said her surgery for appendicitis was delayed because of the quarantine policy. More than 1,800 Americans have been quarantined in China since the start of the pandemic.[Jul 28 New York Times story]El Salvador extends school vacation to battle pandemicEl Salvador announced it will extend a scheduled school vacation to 2 weeks to fight the spread of the H1N1 flu, the Associated Press reported yesterday. School vacations that began yesterday and last from 2 days to a week, depending on the region, will be extended until Aug 10. The action will affect nearly 2 million students. The country has had 545 confirmed cases of H1N1 flu, including seven fatal ones, the story said.Canadian cities group says national pandemic plan is lackingThe head of the Federation of Canadian Cities has charged that Canada has no national plan for protecting critical frontline workers such as police, firefighters, and transit workers, the Toronto Globe and Mail reported. In an open letter sent yesterday to federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq, Basil Stewart said Canada’s pandemic plan does not say who will have priority access to vaccines and antivirals. A spokesman for Aglukkaq said ongoing epidemiologic studies will guide vaccine allocation.WHO to probe antiviral use patternsA World Health Organization (WHO) spokeswoman said today that the agency will host a technical teleconference soon to discuss antiviral use during the H1N1 pandemic and the risks of antiviral resistance, Agence France-Presse reported. Countries vary in their use of oseltamivir (Tamiflu). Some use it widely for prevention and treatment of mild cases, while others are reserving it for infections in high-risk groups and for severe cases. So far, five antiviral-resistant cases have been identified.last_img read more
