The Sepang House is defined by a large sheltering roof with deep overhangs, shaded terraces and balconies along its edges. It uses raw concrete, bricks and wood to develop a material language that echoes its tropical setting. Different materials are used to distinguish different elements of the house. For example, raw exposed concrete is used for all external walls, bricks for spine walls that runs along the centre of the house, and timber for roof structures, ceilings and the floor. All other surfaces are plastered and painted white. This approach to materiality creates a richness of texture in the house – an interesting background for contemporary family life.Save this picture!© Marc TeySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marc TeyThe design of the house is driven by the desire for the main living areas to face the cool and shaded north direction and the garden. In order to achieve this, spaces are organized along a pair of central brick spine walls that runs east and west. Staircases are placed between these walls. Main spaces such as living, dining, guest and master bedrooms organized to the north of the spine walls, whereas the kitchen and other bedrooms to the south. Openings in the spine and multiple double height volumes create opportunities for visual and acoustic connections within the house and outdoors, making the house feel more intimate and warm.Save this picture!© Marc TeyThe main living areas on the ground floor are directly connected to a large outdoor terrace that cantilevers over the pool. The master and attic bedrooms are also connected to terraces. They mediate between the inside and outside spaces and provide the occupants with shaded cool spaces outdoors, a necessity in the hot humid climate of the tropics.Save this picture!© Marc TeyProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: Edition 02: Lightius Loci – Spirit of LightStudent CompetitionsWon & Won 63.5 / Doojin Hwang ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Sepang House / Eleena Jamil ArchitectSave this projectSaveSepang House / Eleena Jamil Architect CopyHouses•Sepang, Malaysia Save this picture!© Marc Tey+ 24 Share Architects: Eleena Jamil Architect Area Area of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” Sepang House / Eleena Jamil Architect Area:  450 m² Area:  450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Malaysia ArchDaily Houses Projects 2015 CopyAbout this officeEleena Jamil ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSepangMalaysiaPublished on November 03, 2015Cite: “Sepang House / Eleena Jamil Architect” 02 Nov 2015.

Likely responses of the Antarctic benthos to climate-related changes in physical disturbance during the 21st century, based primarily on evidence from the West Antarctic Peninsula region

first_imgDisturbance has always shaped the evolution and ecology of organisms and nowhere is this more apparent that on the iceberg gouged continental shelves of the Antarctic Peninsula (AP). The vast majority of currently described polar biodiversity occurs on the Southern Ocean shelf but current and projected climate change is rapidly altering disturbance intensities in some regions. The AP is now amongst the fastest warming and changing regions on earth. Seasonal sea ice has decreased in time and extent, most glaciers in the region have retreated, a number of ice shelves have collapsed, and the surface waters of the seas west of the AP have warmed. Here, we review the influences of disturbance from ice, sedimentation, freshening events, wave action and humans on shallow water benthic assemblages, and suggest how disturbance pressures will change during the 21st century in the West Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) and Scotia Arc region. We suggest that the intensity of ice scouring will increase in the region over the next few decades as a result of decreased winter sea ice periods and increased ice loading into coastal waters. Thus, the most frequently disturbed environment on earth will become more so, which will lead to considerable changes in community structure and species distributions. However, as ice fronts retreat past their respective grounding lines, sedimentation and freshening events will become relatively more important. Human presence in the region is increasing, through research, tourism, and resource exploitation, which represents a considerable threat to polar biodiversity over the next century. Adapting to or tolerating multiple, changing environmental stressors will be difficult for a fauna with typically slow generation turnovers that has evolved largely in isolation. We suggest that intensifying acute and chronic disturbances are likely to cause significant changes in ecosystem structure, and probably a considerable loss of polar marine biodiversity, over relatively short timescales.last_img read more
