The 30 houses of between one and four bedrooms are developed in the six plants with a certain randomness to allow a variable access and a volumetric treatment of the facades. The access corridor that crosses the block longitudinally from the box of stairs to the opposite facade produces a differential shift of the boxes going out in the four intermediate levels.

The attic plan goes back from the facade plane and allows the emergence of a common terrace.

Fedorovekb/iStock(COVINGTON, Wash.) — Surveillance video captured a collision between a school bus and an SUV in Washington state.Two of the SUV passengers were critically injured and seven students from the bus had minor injuries in the Monday collision in Covington, Washington, according to the King’s County Sheriff’s Office.In the surveillance video, a maroon SUV can be seen driving on the opposite side of the road. The SUV then cuts to the left in front of another vehicle which had stopped and crosses the center of the road before colliding head-on with bus.The collision was severe enough that the bus was briefly lifted into the air before landing on the side of the road.Sgt. Ryan Abbott, the public information officer for the King’s County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News that the SUV drove through a red light. Abbott said 28 students from Kentlake High School in Kent, Washington, were on the bus.Kentlake High School principal Heidi Maurer said in a letter to parents and guardians that “the safety of our staff and students is our first responsibility. This is a rare situation because of the extensive training received by our drivers and the Transportation staff is to be commended for their quick and professional actions.”Abbott said six men were in the maroon SUV, which was a rental car. The driver and passenger in the front seat were taken to the hospital in critical condition, he added.Three of the passengers attempted to flee in opposite directions after the collision before being captured, Abbott said, and two were hospitalized with minor injuries and a third was taken to jail after officials discovered he was a convicted felon in possession of a handgun.Abbott said officials are still trying to determine where the SUV was going and why the driver was driving so erratically.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

JSABBOTT/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Investigators are looking into a potential arson case at a Mississippi church where members sued local leaders after receiving a citation for disobeying orders against holding in-person religious services during the COVID-19 outbreak.The First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs was destroyed in a blaze early Wednesday, according to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office. Church attendees filed a lawsuit against the city after receiving a citation last month for having a Bible study of more than 10 people and an Easter service.Investigators said they believed the fire was deliberately set. A note allegedly left at the scene said, “Bet you stay at home now you hypokrits [sic].” The investigation is ongoing.Nearby residents told local reporters they were shocked to see the church destroyed.“I just don’t understand it. Even though I’m not Pentecostal, I wouldn’t want something like this to happen,” Katherin Bright told ABC Memphis affiliate WATN-TV.Stephen Crampton, senior counsel at Thomas More Society, which is representing the church in the lawsuit, said the fire was devastating.“While there may be room for reasonable disagreement, it seems no call to take such extreme and violent action,” he told WATN.Shirley Byers, an attorney for Holly Springs Mayor Kevin Buck, said her office was shocked and upset over the fire.“It’s unfortunate any time a crime is committed in our town,” she told ABC News.The state allowed churches and other houses of worship to remain open as essential businesses, but faith leaders were asked to be more cautious as the coronavirus spread.The Holly Springs mayor’s office initially declared that churches weren’t essential in a stay-at-home order issued March 23, but it amended the order April 24 so churches could hold drive-through services.The citation issued against First Pentecostal Church said there were 35 to 40 people in the church during a bible study on April 10. Byers said the mayor’s office hasn’t been served a complaint by the defendants.Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves said he would be watching the investigation, but reiterated that the state’s policies allowed for houses of worship to hold services.“It is very clear local municipalities can have guidelines that are more strict than the governor’s guidelines, but they cannot have guidelines that directly conflict with what we have put in place,” he said during a news conference Wednesday.
