Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Some investors might avoid AIM penny stocks because they can seem riskier than blue-chip stocks. However, that’s not always the case. Some AIM companies have multi-billion pound valuations, which puts them in the ranks of the UK’s biggest listed businesses. I’m perfectly comfortable investing in AIM penny stocks, and I think there are some great bargains on the market right now. As such, here are two companies I’d buy with an investment of £5k today. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…AIM penny stocks to buy The first stock I’d acquire is a recovery play. HSS Hire (LSE: HSS) provides tool and equipment hire and related services.Usually, the construction market is the first section of the economy to feel the pain in an economic downturn. It was troubled last year, but the sector has quickly recovered. It would also appear as if there is pent-up demand in the market, as prices are rising.This growth implies HSS is a recovery stock. The company nearly collapsed in 2016/17, and it has been working flat out to return to growth ever since.The group lost money last year, but management has already reported strong trading for 2021. Earnings before interest tax depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) in the first few months of the year were ahead of the same periods in 2020 and 2019. This stock is not going to be suitable for all investors. It’s a high-risk investment, that’s for sure. Another coronavirus wave could send shocks through the UK construction market. This would hit HSS more than most, considering the company’s fragile state. Still, despite this risk, I think the company has recovery potential. That’s why I would invest £5,000 in the business as part of my portfolio of AIM penny stocks. Cheap growth The other company I’d buy for my portfolio is Vertu Motors (LSE: VTU). Once again, this business had a rough 2020, but earnings are projected to rebound this year. For the year ended 28 February 2021, Vertu reported a like-for-like revenue decline of 21.6%. However, in the first two months of the new financial year, the group reported “trading profits at a record level“.Based on this performance, management is forecasting adjusted profit before tax for the year ending 28 February 2022 in the range of £24m to £28m. That’s compared to £24.6m last year. These are just projections at this stage. As is the case with all businesses right now, uncertainty prevails. Another wave of coronavirus could force management to revisit their forecasts and revise targets lower. Moreover, if the economic recovery stutters, consumer confidence may collapse, which would almost certainly reduce the demand for new and second-hand vehicles. These risks and challenges are concerning, but I believe Vertu is one of the best AIM penny stocks to buy now, considering its growth potential and current valuation. The stock is trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 8.2, which looks far too cheap for me, although it does not necessarily mean this will be a good investment.  Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

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.
