The second chapter of the rose-house begins with the city code. The rules allow us to construct a new addition to the existent building on the back of the plot facing Princesa Street. Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!© do mal o menosBeing Vila Real de Santo Antonio city center heritage protected, we had strict rules to follow: (1) all new buildings are obliged to have exactly 12m height; (2) to have a clear distinction between old buildings and new additions, the design façade should not be similar to Pombalino style – rectangular french windows organized in an orthogonal grid.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!© do mal o menosWe took the challenge set by the regulations and we created a four-floor building divided in two to allow more light in the central patio. To improve the opportunities for social interaction and the common amenities of the residential complex, it was decided to use the last floor to locate a small swimming pool and a terrace for sunbathing. Save this picture!© do mal o menosFor the facade, we designed a set of one pane sliding windows out of alignment. The dimension of the windows and the ability to disappear inside the walls can transform the living rooms almost into outdoor terraces making the most of the weather of this region.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!Floor Plan – Gorund LevelSave this picture!© do mal o menosFor the interior, our option was to explore the opposite of the exotism of the existent building and design calm interiors similar in all the flats with wood and cream terrazzo. To this relaxing atmosphere, we added a bold element – an open partition of wood painted in a gradient of pink that organizes the social space of the flats and makes the chromatic connection with the beginning of this story: the rose building, that now is mustard-rose.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!© do mal o menosProject gallerySee allShow lessStrawberry Farm Activity Hall / Describing Architecture StudioSelected ProjectsHouse in Akashi / arbolSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeAurora ArquitectosOfficeFollowFuroOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionPortugalPublished on May 16, 2021Cite: “Mustard Building / Aurora Arquitectos + Furo” [Edifício Mostarda / Aurora Arquitectos + Furo] 16 May 2021.

Better than bitter for olives

first_imgApril 28 2004The local olive market is thriving, with a 10% growth in demand each year for table olives, and 20% annually for oil.South African consume some 3000 tons of table olives and some 700 tons of olive oil annually. Approximately 40% of local production are sold as table olives, with the balance processed into olive oil.The industry is almost 80 years old and experienced substantial growth in the 1990s as consumers became increasingly aware of the health benefits of olive consumption.One company active in one of the Western Cape ‘s fastest growing agricultural industries is the Olive Grove. The Olive Grove processes and produces a variety of olive oils and olive-related products. According to Jan-Paul Lugt, managing director of The Olive Grove, the demand for South African olives and olive products, such as oil, has never been higher.“The increase in demand has led to a substantial increase in the quality of local olives over the past few years,” he says.“Customer demand for olives and olive oil has increased due to the excellent health-enhancing qualities of olives,” says Carol Costa of the ARC Infruitec-Nietvoorbij research centre in Stellenbosch. “The non-fat substances in cold-pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, such as phenols and Vitamin E, have beneficial anti-oxidative properties, which play a role in prevention of ageing and cancers. ”Olive oil also plays a role in regulating blood pressure, maintenance of bone structure and blood sugar levels as well as being good for your skin.The Olive Grove sources its olives from olive farms based in the Wellington and Paarl regions, while most bottling takes place in the Stellenbosch area. All ingredients are produced locally, including materials such as bottles, labels, and lids used during the production process.“The Olive Grove company produces quality products from a local resource providing employment opportunities. This makes Olive Grove an ideal member,” says Martin Feinstein, chief executive of the Proudly South African campaign. “Furthermore, South African consumers need to understand the importance of buying South African goods in order to boost the economy.”Source: Proudly SAlast_img read more
