Located in the verdant Laurentians in Quebec, the Estrade Residence reveals itself discretely on the shores of Lac de la Cabane in St-Adolphe d’Howard.It is by studying the steep and rocky topography of the place that MU Architecture decided to highlight the peculiarities of this site with an adapted and captivating architectural intervention. The first objective was to design a house in total harmony with its environment.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)Save this picture!Floor PlanThe singular topography of the project takes the form of a rocky crest that plunges into the lake. In order to create a discovery path, a series of animated volumes come to anchor, skirt or levitate on this unevenness. Their staggered and superimposed layout generates a multitude of terraces that embrace the site. This deployment creates a rich dialogue between architecture and the wild landscape.The Estrade gives birth to long walls of natural stones which seem to be born from the depth of the ground. As they seem to project themselves towards the landscape, these long walls generate and protect the apartments on the ground floor while giving users direct access to the land bellow. The rocks extracted during excavation were reused in the landscaping around the house, becoming also actors of this architectural narrative.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)Discreet and intriguing thanks to its blind masses; the Estrade Residence is revealed slowly, volume after volume. A wide recess under what seems to be a floating cube invites us to penetrate into the place. From the entrance, an aerial and magisterial staircase welcomes the visitor and unfolds in a vast luminous space. Lined up precisely on large openings, it connects all levels in asymmetric flights. The absence of columns in the design makes the glass railings levitate, thus giving the impression of great lightness. Minimalism and attention to detail bring to the residence a certain purity and comfort that immediately gives the tone to the project. Each corridor leads to a luminous opening and makes us discover a larger and more complex residence than at first sight. The spaces offer both conviviality and intimacy through a different atmosphere at each level.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)At ground floor level, the open space is well defined and offers breathtaking views of the lake. Bathed in natural light the main floor ends with a veranda that extends the kitchen to the outside. This large volume of the ground floor stretches perpendicularly to the natural ridge so as to maximize the panorama over more than 60 feet in length. The black ash coloured kitchen and integrated furniture contrasts with the whiteness of the walls and breaks the monochromy. In addition, the double-sided fireplace located in the center of the common room accentuates the warm feel of the place. The floors, covered with natural wood as well as the terrace allows for a seamless and subtle transition from the interior to the exterior. This main volume cladded with natural cedar forms the heart of the project and brings the family together. It marks the transition between the activity of the lower spaces devoted to children and the calm of the parental suite upstairs.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)At the top, a second black cedar mass dramatically overlooks the entrance and dominates the surroundings. It houses the master’s apartment, complete with a bathroom and a large walk-in.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)The volumetric and vernacular aspect of the Estrade residence combined with its materiality testifies to an architectural writing that composes with its environment. This tripartite composition, spread over several levels, blends with nature following the seasons. Moreover, the articulation of its areas within its masses integrates the house softly and reduces the impact of its 3600sq.ft. Its spatial quality is due to the comfort and feeling of well-being, reflecting the image of the tranquility of the place.via v2comSave this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)Project gallerySee allShow lessMành Mành salon / H&P ArchitectsSelected ProjectsFoster + Partners to Masterplan New Indian State CapitalArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

Public urged to have their say on footpath and cycleway from Carrigart to Downings

first_imgThe Donegal public has been urged to have their say on the proposed footpath and cycleway project on Carrigart to Downings regional road. It is planned to extend along the western margin of the R248, from its beginning near Carrigart to its junction with a minor road close to the Rosepenna Hotel and Golf Resort in Downings. This represents a total distance of approximately 2.6km.For much of its length, the combined footpath/cycleway is proposed to be 3m in width and will occupy the existing roadside verge. At the southern end of the site, the verge is replaced by a strip of hardstand and in this location, it is proposed to create a shared pathway which is approximately 2m in width so as to fit within this area.The works will involve traffic management, excavation, kerb laying, concrete works, backfilling and any associated accommodation works.Submission and observations with respect to the proposed development dealing with:The implications of the proposed development for proper planning and sustainable development in the area concerned,The likely effects on the environment of the proposed development,The likely significant effects of the proposed development on a European site, if carried out.can be made free of charge to the board at An Bord Pleanala, 64 Marlborough Street, Dublin 1 before 4:30pm on the 15th November 2019.  Public urged to have their say on footpath and cycleway from Carrigart to Downings was last modified: November 4th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Magic of Cold

first_img1. Evaporator coilThis is where the refrigerant picks up heat from inside the house. The evaporator coil is a copper tube, which carries the refrigerant, embedded in a framework of aluminum fins (photo below). Using this configuration, the refrigerant is connected to a lot of surface area that makes contact with the air blowing over it, which aids heat transfer from the air to the refrigerant. The most common geometry is the A-coil (below), but you also see flat coils and N-coils in some units.The refrigerant comes into the evaporator coil as a liquid at a low temperature and low pressure. The air handler’s fan (a.k.a. the blower) blows air from the house across the coil. The evaporator coil is cold (about 40° F), and the air from the house is warm (about 75° F, depending on where you set your thermostat). Heat flows from warmer to cooler, so the air temperature drops, and the refrigerant picks up the heat lost by the air. This is the Second Law of Thermodynamics in action.In addition to getting warmer, the refrigerant also changes phase here. It’s called the evaporator coil, after all, so the cold liquid refrigerant coming in evaporates and becomes a vapor. Phase changes are a great way to transfer heat because it takes a lot more heat to cause a phase change (especially between liquid an vapor) than it does to change the temperature of a material. Thus, when the refrigerant starts boiling, it really sucks up the BTUs (British Thermal Units).One aspect of the flow may be confusing when you look at your air conditioner and try to figure out how the refrigerant flows from inside to outside. If you have a split system, the inside and outside pieces are connected by the refrigerant lines, often called simply the “line set.” These are two copper tubes, one larger and insulated tube (the suction line) running parallel to another smaller and uninsulated tube (the liquid line). When the vaporized refrigerant leaves the evaporator coil, it’s still fairly cold. Hence, the refrigerant going to the compressor outside is in the larger, insulated copper tube, not the smaller, warmer tube. As paradoxical as it seems, the colder tube is the one carrying the most heat. You can see that the suction line is the colder tube in the photo of the line set below because it even has frost on it, which is not normal and indicates a problem (e.g., incorrect amount of refrigerant or air flow over evaporator coil too low). 4. Expansion valve — where the magic happensOnce the refrigerant gets back to the indoor unit, it passes through a metering device, such as an expansion valve, and the magic of the refrigeration cycle happens here. The high pressure, relatively warm liquid runs into a constriction that doesn’t allow the refrigerant to pass through easily. As a result, when the liquid does get through to the other side, it finds itself in a much lower pressure. When the pressure drops like this, so does the temperature — a lot! This is what makes air conditioning possible. Without being able to get the refrigerant down to temperatures below the air in your home, an air conditioner wouldn’t be able to work. Why? Because heat flows from warmer to cooler, the old Second Law of Thermodynamics again.After passing through the metering device, the refrigerant goes directly into the evaporator coil, and the cycle begins anew.There you have it. If you followed what I wrote above, you’re ready to head out to the park benches. 3. Condenser coilWhen the high pressure, high temperature, still-vaporized refrigerant leaves the compressor, it enters the condenser coil. As with the evaporator coil, it’s a copper tube embedded in aluminum fins that allows for efficient heat transfer. A fan inside the condensing unit pulls outdoor air through the sides of the coil and blows it out the top of the unit. Because of the work the compressor did, the refrigerant is hotter than the outdoor air. The Second Law of Thermodynamics kicks in here, and heat flows from the warmer refrigerant to the cooler outdoor air blowing over the condenser coil.In the evaporator coil, refrigerant changes from liquid to vapor at a relatively low temperature. Now we’re dealing with higher temperatures, and the phase change reverses. If you’re confused by the phase change happening at different temperatures, think about what happens when you go to high altitudes. The air pressure is lower, and water boils at less than 212° F. Pressure changes affect the boiling/condensation point temperature, which is why boiling happens at a low temperature in the evaporator coil and condensation happens at a high temperature in the condenser coil.After returning to the liquid state, the refrigerant travels through the liquid line (the hot, uninsulated copper tube) back to the indoor part of the air conditioner. The refrigeration cycleThe way your air conditioner pumps heat from inside to outside is through the refrigeration cycle, a thermodynamic cycle involving a special fluid — the refrigerant — that undergoes phase changes (between liquid and vapor), pressure changes, and temperature changes. The diagram below shows how the refrigerant flows through the air conditioning system and what’s happening along the way.First, notice that the diagonal line shows which parts are inside the house and which parts are outside. If you have a split system, with the condensing unit sitting outside making noise and the air handler inside (which could mean in the crawl space or attic), the components are in different boxes. In a window AC or package unit, they’re all in the same box.Now, let’s go through the four stages of the refrigeration cycle, one by one. RELATED ARTICLES Air Conditioner Basics The Difference Between Air Conditioners and DehumidifiersWindow-Mounted Air Conditioners Save Energycenter_img With the recent heat wave that set all kinds of records across the US, including an all-time high of 106° F here in Atlanta, air conditioning has become quite the topic of conversation. Why, just yesterday I overheard two little old ladies* on a park bench debating thermostatic expansion valves versus capillary tube metering devices — and almost coming to blows over it! Most people aren’t quite as informed as these air conditioning aficionados, though, so today would be a good time to get up to speed on how your air conditioner works so that you’ll be in the know when you take your next stroll in the park.I’m going to give an intermediate explanation of the refrigeration cycle here, so if you’d like to take a step back and start with a more basic one, see this explanation of how an air conditioner works I wrote for lay people. (Another good article that covers basics of the refrigeration cycle as well as answers to some commonly asked questions is Martin Holladay’s Air Conditioner Basics.) Today we go a little deeper, though. I’ll name the parts of the refrigeration cycle and talk a bit more about the changes in the refrigerant as it goes through the cycle.Still, there’s a lot I’m not going to cover in this article. I’m not going into the technical details of checking refrigerant levels, the properties of the different refrigerants used, how efficiency (SEER rating) is calculated, or any number of other important aspects of air conditioning systems. 2. CompressorWhen the refrigerant reaches the outdoor part of your air conditioner (photo at top), the compressor does exactly what its name suggests: it squishes the refrigerant down to a smaller volume, thus increasing the pressure and the temperature. Why? Because heat flows from warmer to cooler. You can’t get rid of heat from a cold refrigerant to 95° F air. The refrigerant has to be warmer than the outside air. That’s one reason why we need the compressor. The other is that the compressor is the pump that moves the refrigerant through the system. *Well, OK, maybe I didn’t really overhear this conversation, but I swear I have been in parks and seen little old ladies talking on park benches.last_img read more
