Casa Agua begins with the intention of remodeling and expanding a house from the ’70s to adapt it to its new users. As part of a sustainable approach, it is intended to take advantage of the existing reticular structure, respecting the load-bearing walls and columns but always with the idea of opening the space to its maximum.Save this picture!© Ángela VizcarraSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ángela VizcarraCasa Agua can be described through its circulation. The access to the house begins with a walkthrough next to the main garden leading to an exterior patio, which frames the main entrance, after passing a threshold on a smaller scale. Once entering the house, this scale is increased into a double-height hall that is visualized as a wooden box that functions as a patio.Save this picture!© Ángela VizcarraSave this picture!© Ángela VizcarraFlooded with natural light and crossed by a bridge, this hall becomes the pivot of the house which links the horizontal spaces -public and service- with the vertical ones -private-. On the ground floor, the carpentry hides the structure in order to lighten the volume and allow the visual continuity of the open space. The stairs that lead to the private area of the house, are confined to one side of the double-height.Save this picture!© Ángela VizcarraSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Ángela VizcarraThe landscape is thought of as a series of spaces from where the house can be seen from its different angles. The landscape work consists of recovering the existing lava layers with endemic vegetation, trying to erase the limits of the interior with the exterior. On the upper floor, the roof of the garage as well as the planters are filled with green in order to control the views from the inside, these in turn are also limited through the lattice that covers the main facade in its entirety and which can be opened when it’s needed.Save this picture!© Ángela VizcarraSave this picture!© Ángela VizcarraProject gallerySee allShow lessRed Hill House / InFormSelected ProjectsChina Goes Urban.

Print THE Nicholas Street Medieval Tidy Towns committee celebrated a landmark success in the national Tidy Towns competition recently, coming top in the country in the Urban or Rural Village category.The committee was formed in April of this year after locals grew weary of asking for help with the neglected condition of the area and it is made up of residents and business representatives of the Nicholas Street, Church Street and Castle Street area.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The group’s chairperson Michael Tracey said: “We felt we had to act for ourselves to try and get this area of its knees. We put in a lot of effort and we have the street looking well.“However, this is just the first step in what will be a very long strategic plan for the area. I want to congratulate all our committee and we look forward to further progress next year.”Dr James Ring of the Limerick Civic Trust, which is a member of the group, added: “We have a five year plan to gradually increase the catchment area to take in the entire medieval city to include the English and Irish towns.“This year coming we plan to include the Abbey area of King’s Island before moving over the bridge to take in Broad Street and John’s Street in the coming years.” NewsLocal NewsNational award for Nicholas Street Medieval QuarterBy Liam Togher – September 18, 2013 974 Linkedin 490 volunteers attend Tidy Towns webinar hosted by Limerick City and County Council Love for Limerick as stars line up for St. Patrick’s Day’s video TAGSfeaturedLimerick Civic TrustMedieval QuarterNicholas StreetTidy Towns last_img read more
