Five House is an accessory dwelling to a 1,643 square foot main residence.  The project sought to embrace the existing historic mid-century modern main residence on the property and provide direct engagement between the entertaining decks, linear pool, and the new accessory structure.  A thorough discovery and programming phase allowed the design team to understand specific aesthetic goals and function requirements of the compact footprint.  Simplicity of form, complementary proportions, and planning efficiency were primary objectives for the design concept.  The dwelling is designed on a strict five-foot planning grid, which not only reinforces the primary design objectives, but is also how its name was derived: Five House.  Save this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de VelascoSave this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de VelascoThe structure provides both a public entertainment use and a private dwelling space for guests.  The living room and kitchen open directly on to the pool terrace, providing a cabana-like connection to the pool.  For more private guests, the dwelling is a full-service space that can provide as much privacy as preferred through operable louvers and roller shades.  During parties and gatherings, the pool-side façade can open completely with a series of disappearing glass panels.  The same glass panels can be veiled by use of the rolling vertical louvers that disrupt sight lines from the main house.Save this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de VelascoThe accessory structure employs a limited vocabulary of materials, displaying rich texture and amplifying the movement of sun and shadow across the façade. A board-formed concrete frame supports a simple, mono-slope standing seam metal roof that floats above a delicate clerestory ribbon of glass. Responsibly-sourced Cumaru wood cladding is used as a strong vertical texture on the façade, as well as the decks and ceilings throughout the house.  The Living Room and Bedroom open to the outdoor decks through a pocketing glass wall, while rolling solar screens and a generous roof overhang allow for privacy and shade during the day. The 672 SF project is organized along the North-South axis of the site, engaging the natural landscape and serving as the terminus to the 50ft lap pool.Save this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de VelascoSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de VelascoThe combination of pitched ceilings and clerestory windows attribute to the spatial success and comfort of the project.  The concrete frame and door opening heights of the dwelling are actually rather low, approaching a code minimum height.  The design team felt that this provided a more appropriate proportion to the structure and complemented the scale of the 1949 existing residence.  The main façade of the house incorporates (5) five-foot sliding glass panels that pocket and disappear into the wall, creating direct engagement with the outdoor decks. This expands the livable area of the unit and blurs the delineation of indoor and outdoor space.Save this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de VelascoProject gallerySee allShow less72h Cabin / JeanArchSelected ProjectsArlette Restaurant / Baran BuroSelected Projects Share “COPY” Area:  922 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” United States Save this picture!© Parrish Ruiz de Velasco+ 22Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this officeM Gooden DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDentonOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on February 20, 2021Cite: “Five House / M Gooden Design” 20 Feb 2021.

A win for big marijuana is a major loss for children

first_imgMercatorNet 13 November 2014For decades, popular media has excelled in reporting the harms of tobacco use, and generated significant positive peer pressure to break and/or avoid the habit among adults and youth alike. As a result, Big Tobacco has been almost irredeemably demonized. Popular media’s treatment of marijuana, in contrast, is often characterized by sloppy reporting, and increasingly appears to have pot fast-tracked for canonization as the panacea to all medical, economic and social ills.Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Midterm referenda earlier this month resulted in the legalization of recreational marijuana use in Washington DC, Oregon and Alaska, which joined the states of Washington and Colorado. This has been hailed by proponents of repealing the federal ban as a triumph in the march against the failed draconian policy of prohibition.Curiously, a few days later, the sleepy little town of Westminster, Massachusetts received kudos in the media for potentially becoming the first municipality in America to ban the sale of all tobacco products. Exactly why is this “Prohibition” being championed as “progressive” rather than disparaged as “draconian?” According to the article it is because this prohibition will prevent tobacco from impairing and/or shortening the lives of 5.6 million children. While I applaud this focus on children’s well-being, I sorely wish children’s health were the focus of a battle against an enemy with far more dire consequences to children than tobacco : Big Marijuana.Even medical marijuana alone, which remains scientifically problematic as explained in a previous MercatorNet article, increases the availability of pot among adolescents. A 2014 survey of Colorado teens in substance abuse treatment centers found that 74 percent obtained their pot from a medical marijuana patient. A recent multi-state study, involving thousands of high school seniors, found that 10 percent of non-users would try marijuana if it were legal in their state. Among those seniors in the study who already used marijuana, 18 percent said they would smoke more if it were legal. Already, by 2011, more kids were smoking marijuana than were smoking cigarettes. It seems kids, like their parents and many American adults, view marijuana as less harmful than tobacco. This is a myth with potentially grave consequences.http://www.mercatornet.com/articles/view/a_win_for_big_marijuana_is_a_major_loss_for_childrenlast_img read more
