It has always been our dream to build our own house on a vacant plot of land in a town or city. After three years searching hopelessly for vacant plots in and around Benešov we came across a ‘for sale’ sign behind the window of a terraced house just five minutes from the main square and in one of the few neighbourhoods of Benešov that was left largely unscathed by the urbanistic ravages of the communist era. A small house for demolition, a stone cellar with a brick vault and a small garden which, together with the neighbouring gardens, gave the illusion of a large orchard. What more could we have wished for?Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslThe original architectural concept was born the first time we visited the plot and did not change significantly after that. The studio/guest room, house facilities and garage are on the ground floor.  The main living area sits on top of this and includes a living room with a high ceiling, an open plan kitchen and a dining room which is directly connected to the garden.  The top of the house contains a private floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslThe existing street frontage has only one thing in common, each house is different. We therefore decided to break the facade to allow for distance from the street at the living area level and an entry courtyard which provides the house with a private entrance; with a metal gate separating the tranquil courtyard from the street.  The height of the individual volumes line up with the neighbouring houses and create a harmonious order in contrast with the broken front.Save this picture!Section 06The house walls were constructed using Durisol building blocks and the ceilings were cast in-situ with reinforced concrete.  We wanted to salvage the bricks from the demolished house so we could use them to construct the gable non-insulated walls, using this exposed brickwork to create textural infinity and imperfection. In the end however we only had enough bricks to construct the ground floor gable walls and so the upper floors were finished with new bricks. Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslThe gas boiler is conveniently positioned in the first floor utility room which is separated from the kitchen by built-in joinery, the use of this location shortens the hot water pipework.  The utility room also contains the larder, washing machine and tumble dryer which saves valuable floor space. Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslAll the internal floor finishes are either terrazzo or cotton carpet and the walls are either plaster or exposed brickwork. Larch wood was used for all the carpentry and joinery.  The windows on the ground are aluminium and timber was used for the living quarters.  The external walls are rendered with stucco, the ground floor concrete blocks are painted black and bricks are left exposed, the entry metal gate is also painted black. There are concrete and granite steps to the garden and both courtyards are paved with combination of granite offcuts and worked solid granite blocks.Save this picture!Section 05An inseparable part of the design is the outside space.  There are pleasant views from the studio into the entry courtyard and shade is provided from the southern sun by a thorny locust tree.  A blue hydrangea was planted in the back courtyard. The garden itself is divided by box hedging into three consecutive sections. The first section is filled with decorative planting; lavenders, cherry prunus, perennials and kitchen herbs. The central relaxation section contains a fire-pit and an Amelanchier shrub. The final section is utilitarian with strawberry, raspberry and gooseberry plants and apple and cherry fruit trees.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslProject gallerySee allShow lessDonghua Chen & Partners Release Details of “Science Island Loop” Proposal in LithuaniaArchitecture NewsResidential Building in Bucharest / Melon Design StudioSelected Projects Share Houses Lead Architects: Photographs Family House with Studio / holiš+šochová architekti Architects: holiš+šochová architekti Area Area of this architecture project 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/896729/family-house-with-studio-holis-plus-sochova-architekti Clipboard Photographs:  Tomáš Rasl Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/896729/family-house-with-studio-holis-plus-sochova-architekti Clipboard Hynek Holiš, Šárka Holišová Šochová Projects Year:  Manufacturers: Janošík, Made a mano, Granit offcuts, KVK, Krespo, Locksmithery Prosek, Omega 99, Vanecek carpentery Save this picture!© Tomáš Rasl+ 27Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this officeholiš+šochová architektiOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBenešovCzech RepublicPublished on June 23, 2018Cite: “Family House with Studio / holiš+šochová architekti” 23 Jun 2018.

Why Arteta ignored the mistakes to extend Luiz’s contract

first_img It seems the majority of Arsenal fans are disappointed to have the Brazilian defender for another year, and pundits far and wide and have been taking aim at the decision by the Gunners’ hierarchy to keep the 33-year-old for a further 12 months . “David Luiz hasn’t been a proper footballer for about three years,” lambasted former midfielder Emmanuel Petit . “But I’m not surprised that he has been given a new contract at Arsenal, because I’ve been very disappointed in relation to the club’s activity in the transfer market. “If I was David Luiz, of course I would sign a new deal and I would also say a prayer of thanks to the Arsenal directors every time I wake up. Even when he last won the Premier League with Chelsea, he’s not the same player any more. This guy has lost something. “To be honest, it’s a joke. Find some proper defenders. Are you telling me there are no young talented defenders on the market? I just don’t get it.” That view is shared by many, but there is one very important person at Arsenal whose opinion differs drastically to the likes of Petit. Arsenal’s head coach was determined to keep hold of Luiz. That was a stance he held long before the horror show at Manchester City last week that led to so many fingers being pointed in the direction of the former Chelsea centre-back . In the space of 25 minutes, Luiz came off the substitutes’ bench at the Etihad Stadium and gave away a goal, conceded a penalty and got sent off. It was a calamitous performance, one he immediately held his hands up for. “It’s not the team’s fault, it was my fault,” he said immediately after the 3-0 defeat. “I think the team did well, especially with 10 men, it’s just my fault. “I took the decision to play, I should have taken another decision in the last two months, but I didn’t. It was all about my contract, whether I stay or not. “I don’t want to use it as an alibi or an excuse, but it’s my fault and that’s it.” read also:To win a tournament is not just flowers – David Luiz’s And it is that sort of attitude which has made such an impression on Arteta in his short stay so far in north London. The Spaniard sees Luiz as a vital member of his squad and was steadfast in his desire to keep him. A poor performance at Manchester City, one which happened amid all the uncertainty of contract talks, was not going to change Arteta’s mind. Nor was the noise that was coming from outside the club. “David is someone who is very honest, straightforward,” said Arteta. “My opinion hasn’t changed from the moment I joined the team and it won’t change because of difficult performance.” Arsenal announced Luiz’s new deal on Wednesday morning, along with confirmation that both Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares had agreed on four-year permanent contracts and that Dani Ceballos would remain at the club until the end of the season before returning to Real Madrid. “I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future,” proclaimed technical director Edu. “They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed. They bring the right balance to our squad.” Turning his attention to Luiz, Edu added: “David is a really important player for us He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. “His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.” That is a view that is shared by Arteta. Despite what happened against Manchester City’s, Arsenal’s head coach remains fully behind the experienced centre-back. Prior to lockdown and football’s suspension in March, Luiz was the standout performer in an Arsenal back four that kept five cleans sheets in seven games. Had the defender signed a year-long extension back then, few would have batted an eyelid. It would have widely viewed as a sensible decision. But wind the clock forward three months and it being viewed as a massive error. One of the main reasons for concern, certainly amid the Arsenal fanbase, is the fact that Luiz is a player represented by Kia Joorabchian, the ‘super agent’ whose influence seems to be growing at Arsenal by the day. Many believe that Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi and technical director Edu are starting to rely too much on the likes of Joorabchian and Arturo Canales, another agent who now works closely with Arsenal, and are following their advice too closely when it comes to the transfer market rather than focusing on the club’s own scouting network. Canales represents Mari, who has signed a four-year deal despite currently being out with a ‘significant’ knee injury and who had made just three appearances since joining on loan from Flamengo in January. He also represents Unai Emery, who Sanllehi played a key role in hiring following the departure of Arsene Wenger. These are all justifiable concerns, and for a club the stature of Arsenal to seemingly be heavily influenced and directed by agents is a worrying development, and one that does not bode well for the future – especially at a time when the club’s finances are in such a delicate state. But who Luiz’s representative was played no part in Arteta’s desire to keep the defender for another year. Arsenal’s head coach accepts that the Brazilian can make mistakes, but believes the positives outweigh the negatives. He sees Luiz’s experience as vital, especially with such a young squad and with 19-year-old William Saliba arriving later this summer following his loan with Saint-Etienne. Huge things are expected of Saliba, but it must be remembered the centre-back is still a teenager and will need time to settle in England and adjust to the Premier League. He has, after all, made just 32 senior appearances in his career so far. Arteta sees Luiz as being vital to helping Saliba settle in at Arsenal. And given Luiz is unlikely to be a regular starter next season, what he does in the changing room and at London Colney could be just as important as what he does on the pitch during the final year of his stay in north London. Ultimately, only time will tell whether Arsenal’s decision to keep Luiz proves to be the correct one or whether it will go down alongside some of the other mistakes that have been made in recent years, such as Mesut Ozil’s eye-watering contract or allowing Aaron Ramsey to walk away for nothing. One thing that is for sure is that the pressure will be on the Brazilian when he returns from his suspension against Sheffield United on Sunday. Arteta will want to see a response from a player he still views as his leader at the back. Whether Luiz can deliver on that remains to be seen.
