The Orchid was a challenging project, committed by a young couple with two sons, enthusiastic about sustainable architecture. After consulting several architects, they gave the commission to Andrés Remy, who had investigated these concepts in New York at Rafael Viñoly’s Studio for four years.
Sustainability implies a lot of varieties, such as efficient and rational use of energy and water, natural ventilation and lighting, and low-environment-impact materials.
The house has the best orientation, possible thanks to the large lot.
The concept came from the client’s hobby, growing orchids. The house is based on the different parts of the orchid: the roots, the stem and the flower.
The sun rays impact in the interior of each room, were also studied, to determine the optimal depth to place the windows. This gives a unique volumetric outcome to the project. Taking advantage of sun rays in winter increases the interior temperature up to a comfortable level. The design includes glazed volumes with good thermal insulation and small windows in the worst orientation, such as the south facade.
The windows consist of aluminum frames supplied with thermal bridge breaker and double-hermetic-glass. A wide variety of insulating materials were also used, as well as water based paint and wall and roof air chambers.
In the lower floor, the convenient location of the opening windows allows natural air flow helping to decrease the humidity in the room. What’s more, the big thresholds create a good distribution of fresh air.
All this, gives account of the complexity of the house, a glass and concrete flower, designed according to a program of needs and the client’s concerns. #ShoutOut ArchDaily
Here is a new leak from Ne-Yo! This one is called “Over”!
Lil Wayne’s first rock-themed album “Rebirth” has got an official tracklisting which is obtained via Amazon U.K. site. Twelve songs appear on the list with Eminem, Kevin Rudolf, Nicki Minaj and Shanell set to lend their vocal.
The album is slated to be released across United States on December 21. It will be made available for purchase as a single disc, not paired with Young Money’s compilation album “We Are Young Money” as it was previously claimed.
“Prom Queen”, the first single off the record, has been released since late January. Featuring heavy use of Auto-Tune, the song rose to number 15 on Billboard Hot 100 and charted at number 16 on Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles despite its rock genre.
Beside prepping to release his own album, Lil Wayne has also hit studio with “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester, collaborating in a song called “Make It Rain”.

Jennifer Lopez has filed a $10 million lawsuit against ex-husband Ojani Noa, whom she claims is violating a confidentiality agreement in place since 2004 by shopping around a sexy honeymoon video the two made in 1997.
The video, called How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The J.Lo and Ojani Noa Story, reputedly includes Lopez, now 40, wearing skimpy clothing and supposedly being spanked by Noa. It reportedly also contains a fight between her and her mother.
Lopez wants all the footage of her handed over so her lawyers can see whether Noa violated their confidentiality agreement. In 2007, she won a lawsuit that forbade him from publishing a tell-all book about their 11-month marriage. That book allegedly claimed Lopez frequently cheated on Noa, including with her current husband, Marc Anthony.
A Los Angeles judge has ordered Noa not to release the video while the case is being decided. The jurist is set to rule Tuesday on whether to continue his order barring distribution.
“I’m going to fight this,” Noa, 35, told the New York Post. #ShoutOut: People
