Tags: Online Gambling Sports data comes to the fore Scott Longley looks beyond the PASPA hype to uncover a booming sports data industry that igaming firms need to be aware of.The news being generated by some of the biggest companies in the online gambling sector in the months since PASPA was struck down has been dizzying. Understandably, this once-in-a-generation opportunity has been the focus of much industry speculation.Yet, in among the US-centred tie-ups, supply deals and acquisitions announced in the past three months the significance of a couple of deals has perhaps been overlooked.The two investment deals bookending July, first with Sportradar and then with Genius Sports, indicate the growing importance of sports content and data, not just to the sports-betting industry but also much more widely.For the first, the investment announced on July 9 on the part of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) and Silicon Valley-based growth equity firm TCV gives Sportradar an enterprise value of €2.1bn (£1.9bn).No further financial metrics were given, but current shareholder Ted Leonsis, co-founder and partner at Revolution Growth, said he had previously invested in the company because “we know how powerful real-time data and analytics have become to the live sports business.” This view has been bolstered by the PASPA decision.Similarly emboldened by recent events are UK-based Apax Partners, now the proud owner of Genius Sports having announced it had bought the company in late July for an undisclosed sum thought to be around 10% of the size of the Sportradar deal. Similarly to Leonsis, Gabriele Cipparrone, partner at Apax Partners, cited live sports data and its attendant technology as “key drivers of growth.”The latest financial figures available for Genius Sports from Companies House for the year to December 2016 show the historical growth path. Combined the various entities under the holding company umbrella enjoyed a near 50% leap in revenues to £32.2m while the Betgenius data collection arm enjoyed a 68% increase to £26.9m.If a similar growth path continued into 2017, revenues for the year would almost be between £45m-£50m, driven to some extent by acquisitions including the Italy-based Data Project bought in September last year.It is the available results from another of the sports data and content world’s largest constituents, Perform, which give a clearer view of some of the broad trends affecting the area of sports content and data collection and distribution.Perform has its own somewhat complicated ownership issues. At one time listed on the London Stock Exchange, the company returned to the hands of previous owner Access Industries, the privately-owned industrials group controlled by Len Blavatnik.As can be seen from the below chart, the content side of the business, which includes the Watch&Bet streaming operation, data collection company Runningball as well as Opta, saw revenues climb 41% to £278m in the 12 months to last December.DAZN is Perform’s over-the-top (OTT) sports streaming service which launched last year in Germany and which takes the sports content familiar to in-play betting offerings direct to a consumer audience.While Sportradar has a different strategy focused on providing a similar B2B offering to sports-rights holders, the general trend holds true for all. According to Perform, sports streaming has come about in response to “rapid changes” in the consumption of sports and media content.It is a trend which helps explain the recent corporate activity with these significant investments coming about as a result of the confluence of technology and consumer behaviour.It also helps explain why sports data – and in-play data in particular – have become that much more valuable.Add in recreational habits around the consumption of sport and the consequent growth of the sports industry alongside the growth of the betting element and it is understandable why there is so much interest in the sports content area.The timing of the PASPA repeal is fortuitous but not the major driver. As it stands, there are not all that many investable businesses involved in sport – surely no one other than billionaires truly believe football clubs fall into that category – and it is no coincidence that a good few of them happen to be in the sports content and data delivery sector.The three companies mentioned, along with the much more secretive IMG, aren’t the whole of the sector though they are currently attracting the most attention. All are currently embroiled in the discussions around official data and integrity fees in the US and similar discussions around the database right in Europe. But behind the headlines lie very solid businesses already with very attractive growth opportunities ahead. The gambling industry should take note.

It turned out to be a year with no Grand National, no European Football Championship, no Wimbledon, no retail betting – ordinarily a £2.8bn industry – whatsoever for much of the year and much of the remaining sports cramped into an altered calendar. Standing alone Yet at William Hill, revenue was down only 16% to £1.32bn. Granted, this would be a major hit under normal circumstances, but against last year’s backdrop it looked fairly resilient given that its 2,300 betting shops make it the largest retail bookmaker in the UK. Affordability under the spotlight “But to me the proposed soft limit is fairly arbitrary and potentially very damaging towards the goal of zero revenue from harmful gambling. What we have here right now places affordability in our view of the customer, but not as the only view. Those trends were clear exceptions: the calendar has returned to normal and margins will normalise too. But more broadly, there is plenty ahead that will change the landscape of betting in Britain well into the future. “It’s more immersive, in short it’s more addictive, and it causes more harm.” “Some sports are living on a knife-edge because of the ongoing ban on spectators, so the funding provided by our members is even more important than usual.” In February 2020, before most people could have anticipated the scale of the impact the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) was to have on the British betting industry, or the wider world, William Hill chief executive Ulrik Bengtsson provided a prediction about how the growing crisis might affect his business. Simmonds, however, argues that the funding sponsorship offers to sports provides a great benefit that must be considered amid any sponsorship ban. If that doesn’t happen, however, operators will have to search for new acquisition channels. With broadcast advertising under threat from restrictions as well, affiliates could increase in prominence. “We welcome the Government’s Gambling Review, which will examine the financial relationship between sports and betting operators,” Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) chair Brigid Simmonds says. “It just seems wholly unnecessary to see that level of gambling exposure, especially to young people and people who may be in recovery,” he says. As online betting operators brought in £319.6m in December, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) launched its long-awaited review of the 2005 Gambling Act. 31st March 2021 By Daniel O’Boyle The industry’s financial recovery came in part thanks to strong margins to finish the year, particularly in both October and December. Meanwhile, the crowded third quarter calendar attracted large numbers of customers. charity Gambling with Lives, says live betting can pose a greater risk than normal pre-match products because of the speed of play. “I think affordability checks could be a key tool in limiting harm,” Prochaska says. “We believe that anything more than £100 would not be as effective as a soft cap limit. That figure’s really about the upper limit and there has been research from the Social Market Foundation that suggests that that’s the case.” 15 minutes read The British sports betting industry dealt with the nightmare scenario of retail closures and an almost empty sporting calendar surprisingly well in 2020. But can it navigate the player interaction and Gambling Act reviews as well as it handled Covid-19? Arguments against the strictest regulation often involve the unregulated market, with the BGC.among those raising concerns about the looming threat With some players facing secondary checks, it is inevitable that soft caps will mean losing some customers, and smaller bookmakers may struggle to automate at the same scale as market leaders. The announcement followed rising calls from opponents of the British gambling industry, such as the Gambling Related Harm All-Party Parliamentary Group (GRHAPPG), which has argued that British gambling legislation is outdated. Dark clouds forming? “We know that the types of gambling products which create the most harm are those that are immersive and have high speeds of play,” Prochaska says. “In terms of sports betting, these specific products are in-play sports betting: that offers multiple opportunities to bet in a short space of time. Yet the BGC has shown some flexibility in this area already. When questioned by the House of Lords’ Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry, Simmonds said the industry would consider a voluntary ban on sponsorship. This could make a sponsorship ban among the most likely consequences of the review. The industry – whether through recognition that change is required or recognition of its inevitability – has shown support for the review. “Affordability will be a key part moving forward, and it should be,” he says. “It’s a really important lens that all operators should look at to limit harm. Threat to sponsorships Entain, meanwhile, said revenue from its British betting brands grew by 22% year-on-year, which may have been enough to at least partially offset the 40% decline from its UK retail suite. “We need solutions that aren’t putting the burden of proof on customers when we just don’t know what happens to the customer if they just don’t provide that proof.” The most direct application of the relationship Simmonds references is sponsorship, where the English Football League has warned restrictions could lead to a £40m loss for its member clubs. Flutter’s Paddy Power Betfair (PPB) and Sky Betting and Gaming (SBG) divisions each saw sports revenue increase, by 5% for PPB despite the retail closures and by 26% for the online-only SBG. “Initial affordability assessments based on personalised geo-affordability are a non-intrusive way operators can get an initial understanding of an individual’s affordability without requiring sensitive financial information from the customer,” he says. “These checks can be conducted seamlessly in the background without disrupting customer play, at minimal inconvenience to the customer and with no marks left behind on the customer’s records.” At the time, his forecast – of what seemed to be a worst-case scenario – seemed puzzling. Yet the next 10 months saw much more sport cancelled than anyone could have anticipated in February 2020, and while there was a significant revenue hit, Bengtsson’s early optimism seemed to be vindicated. The first question that will affect the industry, however, comes before the review and it concerns affordability. Looking at the online market as a whole, gross sports betting yield for the operators who reported data to the Gambling Commission, representing about 80% of the market, for the 10 months from March to December 2020 came to £2.01bn. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot at stake for the vertical. Many of the questions under consideration deal with cross-product issues such as VIP schemes, deposit limits and marketing, which could lead to a major hit for betting revenue. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter A fear that a large number of players will stop playing – at least within the licensed regime – after receiving requests for documentation, has become a common theme when operators discuss the proposed checks. “When it comes to limits, there’s always questions of what level, how they are brought in and whether they are brought in on a blanket level or for certain customers,” Banbury says. “Sponsorship from betting and gaming operators is worth more than £10m a year to darts and snooker, while English Football League clubs receive around £40m a year from the industry,” she says. However, its enhanced affordability checks may involve documentary evidence such as payslips, as well as further open source information. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter However, Neil Banbury, UK general manager for Kindred, which sponsors multiple football league clubs, argues that the issues with sponsorship could be solved by requiring operators to prove a sustainable commitment to the British market before agreeing a deal. “I think that it’s important that all parties in this debate make changes based on how things are done now, not just how things were a few years ago,” Banbury says. “It’s crucial we acknowledge that we are in a much better place as an industry in terms of mitigating harm than we were a few years ago.” The call for evidence asks questions on hard stake, deposit and loss limits, meaning that each of these could be applied to British betting following the review. Though Prochaska says there is a “debate to be had” on stake limits for all verticals including sports betting, Banbury argues that any absolute limits risk creating a great deal of harm. Still, there are many questions in the review that could lead to very severe consequences. “Limits can be a blocker for a customer. They can be a blocker in terms of harm, but they can also be a blocker in terms of enjoyment and if a lot is asked of a player to raise those limits, they may try to find other ways around them. Racing’s position on the Gambling Act reviewSome of the most vocal opposition to the changes proposed has come from the world of racing, as the sport most intertwined with the betting industry.Betting advertising and sponsorship is an especially large source of revenue in racing, so much so that in the House of Lords report on the British gambling industry, it recommended a ban on sponsorship in all areas except horse and greyhound racing, where the impact on the sports and to on-course bookmakers was deemed too severe.But with the horserace levy paid by bookmakers and based on betting revenue being a key component of the sport’s funding, anything that has an impact on betting risks affecting the sport.The British Horseracing Authority has said that the sport could lose as much as £60m due to affordability checks alone. Needless to say, harder limits could have a larger impact on the sport.All of this comes at a difficult time for racing. Like many other sports, Covid-19 slashed attendances, and therefore revenue.Charlie Liverton, chief executive of the Racehorse Owners Association (ROA), says the impact of strict new regulations on the back of the pandemic’s impact could lead to severe consequences.“The effect of Covid-19 continues to impact British racing, both on and off the racecourse,” Liverton says. “The potential ramifications of government reviews, including the Gambling Act and the affordability review, are concerning.”But unlike many other sports, racing was in a decline even before Covid, with both betting revenues and attendances falling.British off-course gross gaming yield on horse racing was £5.74bn in the year to March 2009, but by the year to March 2019, that total had fallen to £4.19bn, while in the partially Covid-hit year to March 2020, GGY was just £3.95bn.On-course betting revenue, meanwhile, fell from £377.2m in 2009-10 to £251.4m in 2018-19, before a sharper drop in 2019-20 because of the impact of the pandemic in March.Those in racing will hope the effects of the review will not be too severe, but the sport may need something else to fully revitalise it. The impact of the pandemic certainly wasn’t insignificant, but the industry weathered an apparent worst-case scenario reasonably well. Mitigating the burden In a review on player interaction launched in November 2020, the Gambling Commission made a series of proposals that would change how and when operators should interact with customers who may be at the greatest risk of experiencing harm. “I think the argument that you shouldn’t over-regulate regulated sites because people will move to the black market, it suggests a race to the bottom,” he says, adding that action from the regulator to block unregulated sites was feasible and would be of great benefit. “The other deep concern to me is that very few people knew about black market operators, and the BGC is almost advertising black market operators by talking about them in this way.” If the industry avoids the strictest limits, it may have to prove it can regulate itself in a sustainable manner. However, any changes to sports betting in the coming year are likely to take a back seat to larger changes in the world of online casino. The challenges to come, however, are still numerous and could potentially have a longer-term impact. Email Address With this not included in the Gambling Act review consultation, it appears unlikely even in the most sweeping reform scenarios. Avoiding the worst? “One misconception is that an affordability check must require a customer to share highly sensitive financial information to an operator even at low levels of spend and disrupt the customer’s play,” he says. That includes a proposed £100 “soft cap” on deposits, with customers unable to deposit any more than this figure in a month until they pass an affordability check. To campaigners such as Prochaska, meanwhile, a clearer separation of betting and casino may be an effective way to limit harm. With Gambling with Lives’ The Big Step campaign having lobbied to end gambling sponsorship in sport, Prochaska says the saturation of gambling sponsorship and the potential harm that gambling can cause mean it should be brought to an end. “Betting operators have provided an economic lifeline throughout the pandemic to the likes of horseracing – through media rights, sponsorship and levy payments – snooker, darts, boxing, the English Football League and rugby league,” she says. “If the limits are a requirement for all players, then you might find players looking for options outside of the regulated system.” Prochaska, however, believes the industry’s invocation of the black market may not always be an answer to concerns. “What I see is an awful lot of greenwashing: operators promoting safer gambling programmes that put the onus on individuals to reduce harm, which studies suggest only stigmatises gambling harm,” says Prochaska “I’m not a big fan of the industry’s efforts to self-regulate.” She adds that betting’s support to sport is especially important right now, because of the effects of Covid-19. Cott says that the initial affordability checks beBettor conducts are based primarily on open data that is already available. Indeed, he says such automated affordability checks will be the only viable way to bring in such a change, as manually checking documents for every player above the £100 limit would simply be too labour-intensive. The mounting criticism of the industry that led to the review has coincided with the rise of some online products, including live betting. Will Prochaska, chief executive of gambling-related harm Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility Sports betting ICE365 Content Series Compliance Legal Licensing Regulation Problem gambling Responsible gambling Horse racing Online sports betting Retail sports betting Sports betting regulation Sportsbook “The industry’s importance to popular national pastimes such as football, rugby league, horseracing, snooker and darts shows why it’s vital that the Government gets the balance right, and does not drive punters towards the illegal, online black market, who have no interest in supporting sport either at a grassroots or national level,” Simmonds says. A 2018 GambleAware survey found that slots are over-represented among those who spend £500 per month or more, and these games face much more scrutiny than sports betting. And with some bettors likely to stake more on specific sporting events, meaning they bet much more in some months than others, a soft cap might be one change that could have a disproportionate impact on betting if implemented rashly. Banbury acknowledges that there is a poor perception around the industry. However, with the operator making efforts to be transparent about gambling-related harm, he adds that some of these perceptions come from events that are, by industry timescales, quite far in the past. When asked about the potential cancellation of Euro 2020, Bengtsson said it might “not necessarily [be] terrible for revenues”. However, Sonny Cott, operations manager for affordability solutions provider beBettor, says these checks may be less intrusive than many assume. Casino games, and particularly slots, have been the top priority of many reformers, with concerns that these are these products that lead to a disproportionate level of harm. “If we move to a world where there’s a higher bar to entry and that when you are involved that you use it as a force for good, that would be a great place to be in.” Many changes proposed to limit harm from slots – for example, to game mechanics such as spin speed, or stake limits for slots – will not have a direct impact on sports betting. Indirectly, however, sports betting could be expected to become a larger driver of revenue for many operators if casino becomes less lucrative. “And then we do work investing in the club and community, ensuring the partnership doesn’t just benefit the club financially, but we also work with the club. Yet while the GRHAPPG called for a ban on online live betting in its 2020 report on the gambling industry, restrictions on live betting did not make the DCMS’s call for evidence. In fact, there was little in the review that applied specifically to betting. However, Banbury says that while he agrees with the principles behind the proposal, the specifics in the Gambling Commission’s review raise some questions. But if cross-sell becomes less of an option through other means such as stake limits for casino, sports betting may be required to stand much more on its own, rather than as a revenue stream that can double up as a casino acquisition channel. The vertical proved its resilience in the face of adversity last year, now it must try to do the same again. “There is certainly a lot of sponsorship, and I understand concerns that there may be too much, but I do not believe that means the solution is to eliminate it completely,” Banbury says. “I believe that the bar can be higher to be eligible to involve your brand as a sponsor. “I think operators should be limited in their ability to cross-sell riskier products to those who are betting on sports,” he says. “I think if you’re going to place a bet on football, you shouldn’t be flooded with ads for slots.” Regions: UK & Ireland Beyond marketing and VIP schemes – where the industry has already offered concessions such as limiting the schemes to players over 25 – the sports betting industry will hope to avoid harsher limits.

I.e., its membership is a tiny portion of its host country’s population; an important proportion of its membership is not grown but drawn from other Christian denominations; it generally can do whatever it wants without much national or denominational consequence; and it is as likely to create its justifications as it is to discover them in scripture, tradition, or (usual, common, general) reason. This is not a reproach; I admire it. It is far freer than, say the poor old Church of England. Only the fact that it is, proportionally in the Anglican Communion, so wealthy, gives one pause for reflection so that innovation by wealth is not imposed. But perhaps, indeed, it is time to proclaim that faith, the voice of the divine spirit, or the winds of the future, call it to remain faithful to its truth. It is certainly a kinder, a wiser and more generous outfit of enthusiasts than, say, that in Uganda.

Spring Ryding says: [Episcopal News Service – Canterbury, England] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry expresses the importance of mission partnerships, relationships grounded in common faith, companion diocese and parish-to-parish relationships; relationships that follow the way of Jesus of Nazareth in addressing poverty and hunger. Speaking outside the gates to Canterbury Cathedral, Curry said these things are the true strengths of the Anglican Communion.

There is no ONE true way, but there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism. There is oneGod who is father/mother of all.

It is a reduction to observer status.So say at least 3/4 of the Primates.We must be honest — really honest right now. Those with working memories know that we have spoken (as a Province) with a forked tongue while agreeing to positions as a member of the Communion. In 1998 and again in 2007 we agreed to self-restraint on making seismic shifts in sexuality issues and broke our word within months. Before 2012 notable bishops of this Church charged ahead with redefining marriage without General Convention authorization and without honoring the word as a member of the Anglican Communion. No consequences came. If that’s what TEC’s power base wanted, then fine. But, with the curtain now open, let’s stop messing about. Let’s just get on with breaking from the Anglican Communion. Have the honesty to do it. Considering the present accusations, rejections, and confrontations being expressed in the Episcopal blogosphere I don’t think this Church’s power base can take back what is being flung. The Communion’s memories will be working three years from now and recall the names and faces, and acid words of these days. Oddly, the majority of the Primates don’t seem panicked about the threats to withhold money. As one commenter just said…”Life will go on”. Oddly they don’t see the need to justify times of weakness and mistakes by their Provinces to our Province when we dare not hear our own story.Instead of 85 million members the Anglican Communion would have 83.5 million (absent us). But we cannot continue to have it both ways. To disparage, accuse, defame, and blame the others (in elitist and racist tones), and want the legitimacy that being aligned with the ancient See of Canterbury brings to this Province is hypocrisy. Choose, but stop the “having it both ways”, “change them” temper tantrums. We’re still a part — but what has been recognized is that we’re doing things APART from the previously (and repeatedly) stated positions. Now, we must live with the discipline resulting from the “bridge too far” choices in this Province — or get on with quitting the Communion. Then, the pews can decide where to go. The day of choice has arrived.

EVERY CHURCH. Jesus specifically never spoke of homosexual marriage or abortion yet he did speak of what God has brought together let no human dissolve. But don’t let the fundamentalists fool you. These are the same churches that openly support bigotry, genocide and war for profits all in the name of “spreading the Gospel”. I’m committed more and more, as it pertains to Christianity, to simply read the words in red and pattern my life after what they, and the ONE who uttered them, says. It’s not an easy life, but should be peaceful. As it pertains to the Sacraments, I will remain with the Episcopal Church for very personal reasons. As Jerry Springer often remarks, “Be good to yourself…and each other.” New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Belleville, IL January 18, 2016 at 12:39 am More importantly, why hasn’t the Episcopal Church broken relations with these provinces? The Africans at least have the courage of their convictions. January 21, 2016 at 12:30 am Baptists can observe Anglicans. Remaining steadfast on this is more important to me than even remaining in the Communion. The “sanctioners” have excommunicated themselves from Anglicanism by the very act of sanctioning. Director of Music Morristown, NJ Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA January 15, 2016 at 11:17 am Because they don’t want too like a lot of other dioceses and churches that don’t allow a woman to preside over communion or take up an offering plate. Each diocese has it own rules pertaining to women and what duties they may perform. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Comments (17) Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Pittsburgh, PA January 16, 2016 at 1:23 pm We are in a time when mankind feels most liberated in their sexuality. But even so can man or woman in thier highest human accolade be allowed to diminish the Holiness of the Church or the Divinity of God’s Word? The Church is a place of worship to a God that let our Lord be crucified so we would be forgiven of our sins and equally important so we could enter Heaven; even having life on earth where God dwells within us. The Anglican Communion is wrong in the severity of its judgement but is right on its understanding of the Church of Jesus Christ. Wasn’t this proven when Churches lost buildings and lands they paid for to the National Church in courts of Law because they would not recognize same sex marriage or gay or lesbian clergy? Where can a worshipper go if he has no Church on earth only to a place of prayer asking to experience his or her Lord from Heaven. If your Church is not Holy how will you want Heaven? A place of God’s Throne. In that Heaven is a royal priesthood. And that is you. You cannot destroy the sacrament of marriage nor have gay or lesbian clergy. You can love whom you want but it is Love you seek. Because you will not be ready to welcome our Lord to your Church. Find the Love that seeks God to come to you. You may be surprised.

We will prayer for you. God bless you so much. February 18, 2016 at 4:11 pm Seriously, why cannot we all just get along? The answer to the ordination of women and gay marriage seems so simple to me at least. Why cannot we, as a Communion, agree that each Province has a different “take” on certain things then other Provinces. Why cannot we simply say this…”I do not agree with what you are doing, but God bless you, I still love you, and while I don’t hold the same opinion as you do I still support you and your right ti difference. In every diocese in the Anglican Communion there are churches that are so High they remind people of the Roman Catholic Church in the 1950s, and in the very same city there are churches that are so Low they seem almost like the old Methodist Church. Why cannot we all just get along together? Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC read more

An area of triangular and irregular shape, a tree and an enormous desire to be more integrated, to be more responsible with the environment where we live, to build with more cleanliness. There was already another project for the same lot, with the same wishes, but another interpretation. The new project should be faithful to the smooth slope of the lot and enhance the view of the reforested area in front of the house and share with Red Angico the status of main attraction on the land.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoThe program of the house accommodates on four intermediate levels, with a difference of half a ceiling between them, where the ground floor, which includes the common areas and leisure, is suspended from the floor, leaving the land practically intact with its unevenness. The garage and service area are located on the lowest level to the right of the lot. Right above and to the left are the social and leisure areas, where the intermediate floor is accessed with accommodation for views and an office. Further up, on the last level, is the master suite and the terrace at the height of Angico’s canopy and from where it is possible to see the forest at the height of the trees.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoThe choice for a mixed construction system, between metallic system and glass, together with reinforced concrete and ceramic brick masonry, we managed to rationalize the construction site, equalize costs at the same time that we were able to make a lighter and glazed architecture with large free spans in social areas. The structure of metal beams and pillars was used in areas where the need for large spans was essential. However, where compartmentalization would be inevitable, as in the bedroom and bathroom area, the choice for the masonry system and conventional reinforced concrete structure was the most rational solution.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoSave this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoFree areas and trees can be seen from virtually every room in the house. Integration with the external area is always desirable in places where this is possible. And in this case, not only was it possible, it was practically an imposition of future residents. For this, in the social and intimate areas facing the forest, the glass closings are almost its totality.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoThe veranda with the brazilian ipe wood deck transitions with the outside and the pool, which has a spa-hydromassage on a higher level almost like access to the pool, and allows a privileged view of the forest ahead. Finally, a landscaped plaza and bench was installed in the shade of Angico, from where you can see the entire house, pool and leisure area.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoProject gallerySee allShow lessPlywood House / SMS ArquitectosSelected ProjectsOffice Building Principe Amedeo 5 / Vittorio Grassi Architetto & PartnersSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957657/courtyard-house-ma-studio-afs Clipboard Year: Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses Adriano Ferraz Scatolin / Willian Teixeira Sormani Brazil Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme Marcato+ 31Curated by Matheus Pereira Share CopyAbout this officeStudio AFSOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrazilPublished on April 03, 2021Cite: “Courtyard house M.A. / Studio AFS” [Casa Pátio M.A. / Studio AFS] 03 Apr 2021.
