Located in Nova Lima – MG, on a site of approximately 1300m² in the Crystal Valley condominium, stands a house which looks out over the valley. The idea was to build a house that had all their social and intimate area on the same floor, and the leisure facilities, a laundry area and a garage on the stilts, one floor below. The stilts release the box volume that turns to the landscape with a definitive sight, since the adjacent land is a conservation área.Save this picture!© Jomar BragançaOn the entrance level are the hall, a half bath, the living room, dining area and home theater, forming a large open rectangular space that, beyond sight throughout its length, has a low-slope roof with steel structure and wooden lining, loose throughout its length by glass windows. It’s like a box whose lid opens beyond the landscape could have the sky around it. Next to the rooms, a comfortable eat-in kitchen with pantry, integrates with the other spaces. Opposite the kitchen, a balcony of contemplation runs the length of the room.Save this picture!Floor PlanNext to the home theater is the family area, with closet for linens, 3 great suites and a Master suite facing two views, with a walk-in closet and a comfortable bathroom. Downstairs, a garage for 8 cars integrates the recreation area and living which is also integrated into the gourmet kitchen, leisure area, sauna, pool and game room, plus a good wine cellar. On the same floor, are the maid’s área and a large storage.Save this picture!© Jomar BragançaProject gallerySee allShow lessNCARB Names 13 US Architecture Schools for Integrated Licensure InitiativeArchitecture NewsRobert Moses: The Master Builder of New York City / Pierre Christin and Olivier BalezPublications Share Architects: David Guerra Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Projects Valley House / David GuerraSave this projectSaveValley House / David Guerra ArchDaily Valley House / David Guerra Houses “COPY” Year:  Area:  710 m² Area:  710 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Brazil Year:  2012 Photographs 2012 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/772758/valley-house-david-guerra Clipboard Save this picture!© Jomar Bragança+ 15 Share CopyAbout this officeDavid GuerraOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBelo HorizonteBrazilPublished on August 31, 2015Cite: “Valley House / David Guerra” 31 Aug 2015.

Groves to fight for world title

first_imgGeorge Groves will challenge Robert Stieglitz for the WBO super-middleweight title in Germany on 5 May.The fight, which will take place at the Messehalle arena in Erfurt, represents a major step up in class for the unbeaten 24-year-old in only his 15th professional contest.His trainer and manager Adam Booth insisted last year that the Hammersmith prospect was not ready to compete for a world title.Groves has already won the Commonwealth and British titles.However, Stieglitz, 30, is regarded as one of the weaker champions in an extremely strong division, and the Groves camp believe their man can win the belt once held by Chris Eubank and more recently Joe Calzaghe.Russian Stieglitz, who is based in Germany, has a record of 41-2 and had been pencilled in to fight former title holder Mikkel Kessler but was left to consider other options after the Dane opted to move up to light-heavyweight.Groves, once a star of the Dale Youth Boxing Club in Notting Hill, became Commonwealth champion in only his ninth professional bout and last year took the British crown from arch-rival and fellow West Londoner James DeGale.He ended the year with a second-round stoppage of another former national champion, Paul Smith, at Wembley Arena.Last month he was due to return to Wembley for a rematch with Scotland’s Kenny Anderson, who floored him when they met in 2010.Groves withdrew for medical reasons and it emerged that he was being lined up for a shot at Stieglitz.See also: Groves bout off but world title fight loomsFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Free Webinar: Post-Production Workflows in 6K

first_imgAs the professional video production industry moves toward higher resolution shooting, how can you ensure that your workflow is bulletproof?[Above image from Red.com]An upcoming webinar by our friends at ProVideoCoalition will address one of the big challenges currently facing video pros, how high resolution video effects their post-production workflows. How should this footage (and large file sizes!) be managed in post? How can you ensure seamless editing of 4K and 6K video files? In what format/codec/frame size do you deliver the final video files?The free webinar from PVC will be on November 17th at 11 am PST and hosted by post-production engineer Jeff Brue, who recently worked as a post engineer on David Fincher’s Gone Girl.As many people now know, David Fincher has been a proponent of the use of advancing technology in film for many years now. His advocacy for digital film through the use of RED cameras is well documented. Continuing on this pursuant path of new technology, Fincher decided to have his newest film Gone Girl cut completely on Adobe Premiere CC.Fincher charged longtime collaborators Academy Award winning editor Kirk Baxter and assistant editor Tyler Nelson with editing Gone Girl in Premiere Pro CC. Kirk and Tyler quickly began to work closely with Post-Production Supervisor Peter Mavromates and Post-Production Engineer Jeff Brue, the main speaker in the PVC Webinar.To test this type of workflow Fincher and the post-production crew above ran a test run for a Calvin Klein ad in order to fully understand the workflow. You can see that ad below.Once this was done, Fincher and his team set out to find out what it would take to use this same workflow on a feature film project. PVC webinar speaker Jeff Brue was in charge of developing and designing the a storage system to handle the vast amounts of data produced from the 6K footage.Jeff Brue said in an article from the Adobe Premiere Pro Weblog, “Our goal was to get as many iterations as possible of the opticals and visual effects in a given period of time to make the story as strong as we could,” explains Brue. “The ask was for nothing less than perfection, which pushed us to do better. When it came down to it, Adobe Premiere Pro CC was faster than anything else in the market. That speed meant more iterations, more time to work on a shot, and more time to perfect an edit.”For the Webinar Jeff Brue along with PVC’s own Woody Woodhall will go over the production pipeline used on Gone Girl from the RED Dragon 6K footage to Adobe Premiere Pro CC and finally to the Intel Xeon HP Z Workstation’s that use NVIDIA Quadro GPU’s.If interested click the PVC ad above to register for the webinar or you can go to PVC’s website and register.Light Iron 6K DI DiaryFilmmakers and video pros working on large scale productions should be interested in a recent profile by Light Iron, digital intermediate specialists.

But even with the visitors pushing men forward in the second half, the Busmen proved resolute, preserving a clean sheet for the first time in six matches.The Busmen broke down in tears upon hearing the final whistle and becoming the first team to rule the zonal stage, which started in February.And considering the fact that the club owned by Leorey Yanson was only a provincial powerhouse five years ago, the achievement was nevertheless impressive.Schrock worked tirelessly on both ends, winning 14 duels and creating five chances in a dynamic display that reminded why he was once a regular in the top-flight in Germany.The midfield maestro said he was merely making up for lost time.ADVERTISEMENT WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding “It was a very important game and I’m just honored to be given a starting place,” Schrock said.“I had to prove that I deserve to start because my teammates have been sacrificing the past six months to get us to this stage.
