Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. One UK stock that’s had a huge bounce recently is Amigo Holdings (LSE: AMGO). Over the last month, its share price has more than doubled to 13.75p. However, over 12 months, it’s still down about 45%.Is this a stock I should consider for my own portfolio? Let’s take a look at the investment case.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…Amigo Holdings: business descriptionAmigo Holdings is a UK-based guarantor loan company that allows people to borrow between £2,000 and £10,000 with a guarantor (someone, usually a friend or family member, who agrees to back up the borrower and step in to make repayments if they don’t). Amigo’s aim is to give people the chance to borrow even if they don’t have a great credit score.Amigo listed on the London Stock Exchange back in 2018 at an Initial Public Offering (IPO) price of 275p. Since then, the stock has underperformed badly, falling to near 5p in June last year. At its current share price, its market capitalisation is about £62m.Recently, the company has appointed a new leadership team in an effort to turn itself around. “We are a new leadership team that wants to correct past mistakes in a way that is fair and equitable to all our customers – including our 700,000 past borrowers and guarantors,” Amigo said in a statement.It’s worth noting that a couple of directors have purchased a small amount of shares recently, which could indicate they expect Amigo’s share price to rise.Amigo’s Q3 resultsLooking at Amigo’s recent third-quarter results for the period ended 31 December, the company appears to be struggling.For the nine-month period, revenue also came in at £137.5m, down from £218m in the same period in 2019. This drop in revenue was driven by a pause in all new lending and the loss arising from Covid-19-related payment holidays (62,000 customers had been granted payment holidays as at 31 December). Meanwhile, the company generated a loss before tax of £71.6m, compared to a pre-tax profit of £55.3m in the year before.What stands out to me here is the ‘complaints expense’. This surged to £116.2m for the period, up from £26.6m in the year before. Source: Amigo HoldingsLooking ahead, analysts expect full-year (ending 31 March) revenue of £176m. For the following year, the consensus revenue forecast is £128m.Turning to the balance sheet, the company reported non-current liabilities of £344.1m at 31 December. Equity on the balance sheet was £153m, giving a long-term debt-to-equity ratio of a high 2.2.Complaints risksGoing back to the complaints issue, this appears to be a big problem for Amigo. According to the Financial Ombudsman Service, complaints about guarantor loans soared last year. Between October and December, there were more than 10,000 related complaints, up from just over 300 in the same period a year before.Many of the complaints – which ranged from borrowers saying their lender shouldn’t have given them a loan because they couldn’t afford it, to family members claiming they didn’t agree to be a guarantor – were about Amigo. This issue adds risk to the investment case. My view on Amigo sharesPutting this all together, Amigo isn’t a stock I want to buy right now. It just looks too risky. There are lots of other stocks I’d rather buy that are a better fit for my portfolio.

Global issues dominate Primates Meeting, as marriage equality still challenges…

first_img Submit an Event Listing By Matthew DaviesPosted Oct 3, 2017 Doug Desper says: Presiding Bishop Michael Curry offers the opening prayers for Nevada during Evensong at Canterbury Cathedral on Oct. 2. Photo: ACNS[Episcopal News Service, Canterbury – England] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is joining most of his fellow Anglican primates – or senior church leaders – in Canterbury this week for a five-day meeting that focuses primarily on global issues of peace and justice, evangelism and discipleship. But the issue of marriage equality has taken up a significant portion of the opening two days.The Scottish Episcopal Church on Oct. 3 agreed to accept certain “consequences” for voting earlier this year to allow same-sex marriage in church.The primates, at its last gathering in January 2016, called for the same consequences to be applied to the U.S.-based Episcopal Church. They asked that the Episcopal Church would, for a period of three years, “no longer represent us on ecumenical and interfaith bodies, should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and … not take part in decision making on any issues pertaining to doctrine or polity” on Anglican Communion bodies. That action came in response to the 2015 General Convention decision to change canonical language that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman (Resolution A036) and authorize two new marriage rites with language allowing them to be used by same-sex or opposite-sex couples (Resolution A054).In a similar move, the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church last June voted in favor of allowing gay couples to marry in church. The vote means that the canon law will be changed to remove the definition that marriage is between a man and a woman, which enables gay and lesbian Christians to be married in church. The change in canon law also will stipulate that members of clergy will not be required to solemnize a marriage against their conscience.Bishop Mark Strange, primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, said in a statement that the decision “was ours to take as a self-governing province of the Anglican Communion” but that he recognized it has caused “some hurt and anger in parts of the Anglican Communion.”Strange also recognized that the decision taken at the last Primates Meeting “to exclude our brothers and sisters in the Episcopal Church from debate on doctrine and from chairing Anglican Communion committees, is a decision that now also pertains to us. We will continue to play our part in the Anglican Communion we helped to establish, and I will do all I can to rebuild relationships, but that will be done from the position our church has now reached in accordance with its synodical processes and in the belief that love means love.”He explained that the process in Scotland had included “much prayer, theological debate, open and, at times, very personal testimony and that opportunity had been provided for groups throughout the church to discuss this matter and to pray about it; this included the voice of the youth in the church, the sharing of powerful words and stories from elderly members and hearing representation from those who hold a traditional understanding of marriage, those who see marriage as including same-gender couples and those who have encountered exclusion in declaring their love.”Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby addresses media Oct. 3 during a press conference at the conclusion of the second day of the Primates Meeting. Photo: ACNSDuring an Oct. 3 press conference, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said that there “were a lot of expressions of disappointment” with Scotland’s decision, but that Strange had been “careful in expressing his recognition that this was going to lead to consequences in terms of not being able to play a role in ecumenical or leadership roles in the Anglican Communion … and that was in line with the decisions reached in January 2016.” Welby said that no formal vote was taken by the primates to ask the Scottish Episcopal Church to accept the consequences “as there was no need for one.”At their January 2016 meeting, a majority of the primates requested action against the Episcopal Church, officially using the language of “consequences,” although some have argued that they are in fact “sanctions” with a different identity.Three months later in April 2016, the Anglican Consultative Council, the Communion’s only official policymaking body, declined to endorse or take any action similar to the primates’ call for three years of so-called “consequences” for the Episcopal Church. The Episcopal Church’s three ACC members participated fully in the meeting.In his briefing to reporters, Welby said that some primates had raised the question on whether the “consequences” for the U.S.-based Episcopal Church had been followed through.“I went through what we have done and they were satisfied,” he said. “I think I can show very clearly that everything that was decided that could be carried out was carried out.”He said that the primates raised two “confusions” over the decision:“One was that the Episcopal Church … was at the Anglican Consultative Council Meeting in Lusaka last year. Of course the ACC is a trust under English law. They are members of that trust. In fact one of them at the time, although he has stepped down, was a trustee. I have no power to overrule English law and say they can’t come. And so that was explained. I don’t think that had been fully understood.“The other was asking why the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church was on the task group looking at walking together. When you look at the wording of what was decided last time it was perfectly clear that there needed to be a conversation, a dialogue, about what it meant. And you clearly can’t have a conversation when you only have one group in the room.“Talking to people over dinner last night and since, there has been no disagreement with that.”Three primates – Archbishop Nicholas Okoh of Nigeria, Archbishop Onesphore Rwaje of Rwanda, and Archbishop Stanley Ntagali of Uganda – are not attending the Primates Meeting because of the developments in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church and the Scottish Episcopal Church.Another three – Archbishop Sturdie Downs of Central America, Archbishop Jacob Chimeledya of Tanzania, and Archbishop Stephen Than Myint Oo of Myanmar – are missing the meeting due to a mixture of practical, health and internal country affairs, according to the Anglican Communion Office.The primates in January 2016 also asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to establish a task group “to maintain conversation among ourselves with the intention of restoration of relationship, the rebuilding of mutual trust, healing the legacy of hurt, recognizing the extent of our commonality and exploring our deep differences, ensuring they are held between us in the love and grace of Christ.”The task group held its first meeting in September last year and reported back to the Primates during the first two days of the meeting in Canterbury. Curry is a member of the group.Issues of human sexuality have dominated many of the Primates Meetings of the last 15 years. Although this gathering has begun by addressing recent provincial actions on marriage equality, the primates are now expected to turn their attention to other pressing global concerns that affect the 165 countries and 39 provinces the primates represent.Curry has said that he hopes to talk about migration, immigration and refugees at the meeting, his second since becoming presiding bishop in 2015.“Most of our countries are impacted by people who are fleeing wars and violence and injustices and in many of our countries extraordinary ministries are reaching out to help those who find themselves refugees,” Curry said in a recent video message. “In the Episcopal Church, that is true as well. Even now, young people who we call DREAMers, whose parents brought them here years ago … are frightened and fearful that they might have to leave this country. … Refugees are our brothers and sisters because one God created us. …We must help those who are our brothers and sisters and find themselves refugees.”Curry’s message comes against a backdrop of a growing intolerance of refugees in the U.S. and at a time when U.S. President Donald Trump has announced he intends to reduce the refugee admissions ceiling for the coming year to 45,000 persons, almost half the previous historic low of 85,000. Meanwhile, on Sept. 24, the Trump administration issued its third travel ban in less than a year aimed at blocking all refugees and travelers from eight mostly Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.As the Canterbury meeting got underway with the tragic news of the shooting in Las Vegas, the primates gathered around Curry in prayer and solidarity, issuing a statement that called the weekend massacre “truly shocking.” The primates also invited Curry to offer the opening prayers during Evensong at Canterbury Cathedral on Oct. 2.In a video message published last week, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said: “We will miss those who are not there, miss them very much.”And of the meeting itself, Welby said: “I am greatly looking forward to the Primates Meeting. It’s an extraordinary feeling to have the leaders of all the provinces gathering together to pray, to encourage one another, to weep with one another, to celebrate with one another.”Who are the primates and what is the Primates Meeting?Primates are the senior archbishops and presiding bishops elected or appointed to lead each of the 39 autonomous provinces of the Anglican Communion. They are invited to the Primates Meetings by the Archbishop of Canterbury to consult on theological, social and international issues.The Anglican Communion Primates Meeting is one of the three instruments of communion, the other two being the Lambeth Conference of bishops and the Anglican Consultative Council, the communion’s main policymaking body. The Archbishop of Canterbury, as primus inter pares, or “first among equals,” is recognized as the focus of unity for the Anglican Communion.Each province relates to other provinces within the Anglican Communion by being in full communion with the See of Canterbury. The Archbishop of Canterbury calls the Lambeth Conference, chairs the meeting of primates and is president of the ACC.In some Anglican provinces the primate is called archbishop or metropolitan, while in others the term presiding bishop – or as in Scotland, primus – is used.The Archbishop of Canterbury also invites to the primates meetings the moderators who lead the united ecumenical churches of North India, South India and Pakistan.In 1978 Archbishop Donald Coggan, the 101st Archbishop of Canterbury, established the Primates Meeting as an opportunity for “leisurely thought, prayer and deep consultation.”The primates have met in Ely, England, in 1979; Washington, D.C., in 1981; Limuru, Kenya, in 1983; Toronto, Canada, in 1986; Cyprus in 1989; Newcastle, Northern Ireland, in 1991; Cape Town, South Africa, in 1993; Windsor, England, in 1995; Jerusalem in 1997; Oporto, Portugal, in 2000; Kanuga Conference Center, Hendersonville, North Carolina, in 2001; Canterbury, England, in 2002; Gramado, Brazil, in May 2003; London, England, in October 2003; Newry, Northern Ireland, in February 2005; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in February 2007; Alexandria, Egypt, in February 2009; Dublin, Ireland, in January 2011; and Canterbury in January 2016.The provinces and primates of the Anglican Communion are listed here.— Matthew Davies is advertising and web manager for the Episcopal News Service.Editor’s note: This story was updated Oct. 4 at 12:15 EDT to add further comments from Welby on the circumstances surrounding the implementation of the 2016 “consequences” for the Episcopal Church.

When will they own the persecution that their positions have created? When will they take responsibility for very un-Christlike behavior to other members of the Body of Christ? To other folks who profess a faith in the same Jesus Christ as they do?It’s time for the hypocrisy to end. Some primates refuse to accept the equality of LGBTQ folks in the realm of marriage. Yet they still do nothing about any within their provinces who have more than one wife. I’ve heard claims that they are adapting the situation to local custom. Yet I fail to see how that differs from what The Episcopal Church and The Scottish Episcopal Church have done.Isn’t it time to put more energy into the mission of the church in carrying out what Jesus commanded of us? We are to love one another as he loved us. We are to love God and love each other as we love ourselves. Those are very clear and unambiguous commandments, to which Jesus provided no exceptions.I also hope the Archbishop of Canterbury would learn to actually lead rather than wring his hands in angst that should never exist. He could just say: That is the way it is in the two provinces that have decided to marry same sex couples. He can follow that up with remarks about it being part of the complex quilt of the Anglican Communion that embraces many views on many subjects. And he could then say to his colleagues that it is time to move on to issues about hunger, poverty, disease and those issues that actually do harm the children of God. Human Sexuality, October 15, 2017 at 9:45 pm Well, what a blessed church TEC is. God calls many of us here, and for those that go elsewhere, may God bless their journey as well. The Holy Spirit is present with us all and calls us to remember Love as we journey onward along this path of growth and awareness. Pray the Daily Office as much as you can. God is continuously revealed as we do so, helping us to heal within and among ourselves, helping us to move forward as a community. October 10, 2017 at 12:50 pm Doug Desper speaks for many of us who have just about given up hope that the Episcopal Church can be saved. Rector Smithfield, NC October 14, 2017 at 5:32 pm Similar losses have been experienced by every mainline Protestant Denomination from the year 1966 through 2017. Presbyterians,Methodists,Lutherans, The UCC, the ABC,and the DofC have all suffered from a staggering loss in membership, while Fundie Christian groups have grown. Your statement seems to forget the fact that that the drop in Episcopal Membership is not an isolated incidence, but part of a nation wide trend. Also every time TEC changes something (the BCE,Women’s Ordination etc.) there is tendancy for disgruntled former Episcopalians to peel off of members who either start attending other churches with similar social beliefs or the forming of Pseudo-Episcopal groups such as the ACNA. Perhaps this study by the Lilly Endowment may shed some light on your blanket assertion of TECs drop in membershiphttp://www.religioninsights.org/articles/denominational-decline-related-birthrates-societal-changes The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ October 6, 2017 at 3:00 am Try reading Scripture in context for a change. Old Testament references to same sex behavior prohibitions are all part of the Levitical Purity Code which contains literally thousands of prohibitions based on cultural issues, dietary issues, property issues, etc. Did you stone your disobedient children? If not you violated this code. Do you eat shellfish and pork? If so you violate this code. Did your wife squat on straw during her monthly period? If not, again, violation of the code. Keep in mind that dietary restrictions kept the Hebrew people alive and avoided diseases from foods that could not be preserved.References to same sex behavior in the Christian Testament were all in letters to new Christian communities that were trying to survive in pagan surroundings. Same sex activities were based in cultures where one man humiliated another by putting him in the “place” of a woman during sex, including raping conquered peoples. Other examples were part of lists regarding idolatrous activities. There were no references to loving, committed and monogamous same sex relationships among males and no references at all to women. One scenario depicted people giving up their “natural” inclinations for “unnatural.” In modern terminology, straight people were behaving like gay people. So, yes, if you are not same sex oriented but you engage in same sex behavior, that could be “sinful.” Most times abomination is used which does mean sinful but does mean to make to want to throw up. Any translation that uses the word homosexual is not accurate since the word did not exist until the early 1900’s.Jesus made no mention of human sexual behavior at all much less same sex behavior. He did talk about relationships and what was good and healthy and what was not. He indicated that by their fruits we would know them and listed the good fruit that comes from a good tree, so to speak.Aside from all of the above, we are looking at a culture of at least 2,000 years ago at its “newest.” They had no frame of reference for such issues. The world was flat to them and the universe revolved around the earth. We know that is not true. Do you really want to base how you look at people different from you through the lens of that many thousands of years ago? I don’t.Yes, The Episcopal Church has lost members. A primary factor can be attributed to more deaths than births among us. Another factor is our refusal to engage in evangelism. People leave for all sorts of reasons and many are looking for some reason to leave and will do so over the color of paint in the nave, having and ordained woman in the pulpit and yes, even today, having a person of color as their priest.Rich, you lump my sexual orientation in with true choices that people make. I did not choose my sexual orientation. Do you really believe that I would choose to subject myself to the crap people like you throw my way? That would indeed be insane. I didn’t choose my sexual orientation any more than you chose yours. Do you recall when you chose to be straight?I doubt you have much, if any, contact or relationship with loving and caring same sex couples who demonstrate all that marriage should be just by their daily lives. Any relationship, regardless of the gender or sexual orientation of the members of the couple, is wrong if it is based on abuse, exploitation or coercion…even if the couple is legally married. It is not the status it is the characteristics of the relationship.Jesus was clear that: We were to love each other as he loved us. We were to loveGod and love each other as we love ourselves.If you want to condemn people, feel free to do so. Just remember that Jesus also said to us that when we judge others, we will be judged by the same criteria ourselves. His advice was that we not judge each other at all. The true “broken image” my friend is our failure to reflect what Jesus taught in our own relationships with each other.Bruce Garner Press Release Service Director of Music Morristown, NJ October 3, 2017 at 5:39 pm Bruce Garner says it quite well above.

The desired conclusion was achieved by the premise and parameter of the study which that was that “marriage is evolving”. Beginning with that argument a lot of effort was spent tracing how marriage has been seen over time and how it has changed. Many, many nice but ambiguously generic verses about love and tolerance have been snatched from the Bible to make the point that marriage should be, you know, “fair” to everybody. One ridiculous argument has been “all the sacraments for all the baptized” as though we have ever ordained a baby as a bishop! But, do you know what? Jesus beat us to that one….and what is dishonest about the study is how his plainest of words about marriage were entirely left out. Strange for “The Jesus Movement” to not begin….with Jesus. Perhaps that is because the desired outcome by activists would have no ground to stand on.Leaving aside all else let’s start with Jesus (you know, like a real Jesus Movement would).In Matthew 19 Jesus was cornered into clarifying what proper bonds of marriage should be in God’s value of things. He would say that divorce was granted only because our hearts are hardened…and how God disapproves of such. But before that often-ignored bombshell comes what the Marriage Study dared not begin with or go near:4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”By the time that Jesus was cornered by the Pharisees in Matthew 19 it was well-known that humanity had tried nearly every option of pairing up and marrying: multiple wives, slave wives, and on and on. Marriage had not “evolved” since the days of Genesis 2, but instead had deteriorated! To this centuries-long experiment in self-fulfillment Jesus got all conservative and loud about it. He even quoted Scripture to back His stand! He quoted from Genesis 2 about what marriage should look like. He didn’t stammer, stutter, equivocate, leave room for Indaba, bring it before a voting body, or ask what the cosmopolitan pressure groups in town thought. Marriage is based in Genesis 2, said Jesus Christ.The Jesus Movement has ignored that one….pretty much on purpose.And speaking of knowing fruits, maybe the alarming downward spiral of our Church is the direct result of the Lord of the Harvest pruning the Church because we can’t live with the plainest of His words.

Presbyterians,Methodists,Lutherans, The UCC, the ABC,and the DofC have all suffered from a staggering loss in membership, while Fundie Christian groups have grown. Your statement seems to forget the fact that that the drop in Episcopal Membership is not an isolated incidence, but part of a nation wide trend. Also every time TEC changes something (the BCP,Women’s Ordination etc.) there is tendancy for disgruntled former Episcopalians to peel off of members who either start attending other churches with similar social beliefs or the forming of Pseudo-Episcopal groups such as the ACNA. Perhaps this study by the Lilly Endowment may shed some light on your blanket assertion of the reason for TECs drop in membershiphttp://www.religioninsights.org/articles/denominational-decline-related-birthrates-societal-changes Rector Hopkinsville, KY Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Richmond Parker says: Cathedral Dean Boise, IDlast_img read more

Architects: SPF:aFrom the street, the crisp, white Swisspearl panels that clad the Oberfeld Residence’s exterior rise a modest 18’ from the street, by code. Tucked away on the other side of the hill, a clean, modern 10,000-square foot home contains two main floors and a basement, a grand lawn, infinity pool, and spectacular view of the Los Angeles basin below.Save this picture!© John LindenThe home’s grand entry boasts an oversized wood door, pivoting into a courtyard-like foyer, flooded with natural light. The space is deceivingly sheltered and indoors, and is punctuated at the far end by a serene lily pond framed in core-ten steel.Save this picture!© John LindenThe house is cut into a steep hillside with large concrete retaining walls to hold up the hill behind. In plan, the structure is an L-shape, embracing the view across its angled infinity pool. Staring back at the house from its generous private landscape, a transparent glass main level is topped by the master and family bedrooms – also clad in glass, but shielded from the sun’s intensity by a series of custom-designed vertical louvers, cut from the same Swisspearl concrete panel material that screens the street façade of the home. The vertical louvers provide a unique architectural contrast to the building’s strong horizontal elements.Save this picture!© John LindenThe interiors feature a myriad of luxury finishes and imported stone, atop textured Mafi wood floors throughout. The 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom and 2-powder room program includes family living quarters on the upper floor, and a guest suite or maid’s quarters on the first floor of the opposing wing. The master suite includes a private balcony overlooking the pool, and features a connected his and hers bathroom and walk in closet/dressing room, day lit by Solatubes – a product that channels indirect natural light into the space during the day, and contains electrical fixtures which can be illuminated at night. Tucked away in a level below the main living space are a home theater, home office, spa suite, guest quarters and wine cellar.Save this picture!© John LindenThe living room is adorned with floor-to-ceiling, 13-foot high glass sliders, direct views of the city, and a wall-to-wall gas fireplace. A generous bar separates the living room from a more formal dining area, which spills out onto a trellised patio for indoor/outdoor dining occasions. A large kitchen area is located just on the other side of the dining room, providing a light separation that is desirable for entertaining. Outside, the overhang from the master bedroom creates a sheltered outdoor living room.Save this picture!© John LindenThe composition of the home is fluid, blending indoor and outdoor spaces with subtle divisions and natural material integration throughout. Ample public and private areas make the home overwhelmingly livable – a private oasis, harmoniously nestled into its urban environment.Save this picture!© John LindenProject gallerySee allShow less1st Place for Santa Catarina’s Public Library Refurbishment CompetitionArticlesUrban Beach / O + AArticles Share CopyHouses•West Hollywood, United States Oberfeld Residence / SPF: architects Area:  10000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Oberfeld Residence / SPF: architectsSave this projectSaveOberfeld Residence / SPF: architects Photographs Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/55369/oberfeld-residence-spf-architects Clipboard Manufacturers: Swisspearl, Niche Modern Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ArchDaily Houses Year:  CopyAbout this officeSPF: architectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWest Hollywood3D ModelingHousesUnited StatesPublished on April 09, 2010Cite: “Oberfeld Residence / SPF: architects” 09 Apr 2010.

MV House / Architecture Research Office

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/197133/mv-house-architecture-research-office Clipboard Projects Architects: Architecture Research OfficeText description provided by the architects. Martha’s Vineyard House frames the transition from land to the strong horizontal datum and vast open space of the ocean. The house is situated against a gentle hill at the southern edge of a clearing in the woods, which offers an expansive view of the water. Three blocks containing different domestic programs are arranged to define a series of exterior spaces, including a protected entry court partially enclosed by the adjacent wooded slope. Save this picture!Courtesy of Architecture Research OfficeTwo perpendicular, L-shaped walls clad in cedar siding define the north and south blocks. Their horizontality, depth and texture accentuate the connection of the house to the site. The detailing of these walls, using two different widths and depths of specially-milled wood boards, echoes the shadows cast by the surrounding scrub oak trees. A laser cutter was a critical tool employed to explore phenomena of light, shadow, pattern and texture in the design of these walls. Contrasting in scale and orientation, standing seam zinc siding and wood windows comprise the balance of the house’s enclosure.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architecture Research OfficeProject gallerySee allShow lessEuropan 11 Proposal: ‘Dornröschen’ / NAPArticlesTEDx Danubia: Children of the Industrial Revolution / Rachel ArmstrongArticles Share MV House / Architecture Research Office Save this picture!Courtesy of Architecture Research Office+ 8 Share United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/197133/mv-house-architecture-research-office Clipboard ArchDailycenter_img “COPY” CopyHouses•United States MV House / Architecture Research OfficeSave this projectSaveMV House / Architecture Research Office Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeArchitecture Research OfficeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 16, 2012Cite: “MV House / Architecture Research Office” 16 Jan 2012.

House RR is a summer house for a young couple and their two children, seeking a retreat that would allow them to escape the city. Situated south of Stockholm, in a pastoral landscape characterised by mixed forest and open fields, the house features an elongated interior space that is loosely divided into social and private spaces. The architecture of the house and its garden creates a world of its own, where holiday life can unfold. Save this picture!Courtesy of Norell/RodheSave this picture!© Mikael OlssonApproaching the site, the house appears as a small, pitched gable that sits atop a gently sloping hill facing a field. Moving up the hill and into the garden reveals the main facade, fronted by the veranda. “Rather than facing the landscape and the view, the house turns inwards towards the forested site. The facade facing the garden, subdivided into five bays by timber posts, lends the house an almost monumental appearance despite its modest size,” says Einar Rodhe, cofounder of Norell/Rodhe. Save this picture!© Mikael OlssonSave this picture!Floor plan + elevationSave this picture!© Mikael OlssonProviding an extensively covered space in-between interior and exterior, the veranda creates an order of posts and rafters to which large, differently shaped openings in the facade behind relate. In addition, it creates a backdrop against which domestic life, as well as the vegetation on the site, unfolds. Save this picture!© Mikael OlssonThe sense of order that the exterior brings is loosened once one enters the house. The interior is one long, open space that has been furnished with four smaller mono-material masses. Together with shifts in floor level, these masses loosely suggest rooms spanning the full depth of the house. The entrance hall and living area are separated by a cylindrical volume containing wet areas. Private areas located towards both ends of the interior area defined by storage volumes. Each room is further emphasized by a window or sliding door that connects to the veranda and frames a view onto the garden. Overall, this arrangement creates an informal relationship between rooms as well as between indoor and outdoor areas.Save this picture!© Mikael OlssonThe relaxed nature of the spatial layout is reflected in construction techniques and the use of plain materials throughout the house. “We wanted to create a varied and multifaceted interior, where different masses and elements are made distinct through their materiality and coloration,” says Daniel Norell. The floor on grade with the veranda exposes the concrete foundation, while raised floors are in soap finished pine. Storage masses are constructed from reused closets clad in stained fibreboard, and the curved wall belonging to the bathroom is in marbled cork. The ceiling binds the different areas together through a rhythm of birch plywood panels.Save this picture!© Mikael OlssonThe use of plain materials continues on the exterior. The roof and veranda are constructed from standard lumber, capped by thin corrugated aluminium. A loosely bound area of gravel that can be appropriated for dinner parties as well as games play surrounds the house. Save this picture!© Mikael OlssonBeyond, the existing conditions on the site are subtly cultivated as well as complemented. Situated on an esker, the site features plenty of small boulders, once tumbled by glacier ice. These boulders are used in the landscaping, for demarcation, retention, or as steppingstones. Save this picture!Courtesy of Norell/RodheProject gallerySee allShow lessFrank Lloyd Wright’s Civic Center Captured on Film by Skyler DahanArchitecture NewsBey Arquitectura Unveils Punta Cana Garden Villas in the Dominican RepublicArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more
