Located in the town where the hotel California sits. One hour south of La Paz Baja California Sur. There is a small magical town called Todos Santos. In witch our client had a vision of developing this 50,000 square foot lot and designing two houses, one for beach house rental and the other one as a vacation home.The town itself is a place to enjoy nature, enjoy the traditions of a typical Mexican calmed town and of course the good food of the well known restaurants as the Café Santa Fe.

This way we created a platform of working people that needed to be trained and supervised by part of our team and the other constraint is that we had to utilize only materials that you can buy in the small “pueblo” with only two hardware stores. So that’s how everything started, in 2006 we started by defining the final budget as the main goal and the design had to be implicit in the final design of the house. The project consists of two equal houses, in which each of them had to be private and at the same time keep the ocean views. To accomplish that we designed a one story house that allow to keep the 180degree ocean view for both of the houses and creating an indoor-outdoor area as the heart of the house. Save this picture!© Sandra MuñozThe house itself consist in two basic materials one to be the exposed concrete walls that matches the existing color of the sand and the second one to be the “talavera” tile considered a typical material in México since the Spanish conquest. With a total square footage of 3,400 the house consists of 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms and the main area to be the kitchen dining and living to be opened to the pool and terrace. Since the most important for us as the architect was to create a place where people can enjoy company of friends and family and at the same time enjoy nature and get to the basics of life. At the end we believe that the most important things in life are not material so we materialize our beliefs.Save this picture!© Sandra MuñozProject gallerySee allShow lessToyo Ito named 2010 Praemium Imperiale LaureateArticles48 Hours CompetitionArticles Share Todos Santos Houses / Gracia StudioSave this projectSaveTodos Santos Houses / Gracia Studio 2006 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/77737/todos-santos-houses-gracia-studio Clipboard Todos Santos Houses / Gracia Studio CopyAbout this officeGracia StudioOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa PazHousesMexicoPublished on September 16, 2010Cite: “Todos Santos Houses / Gracia Studio” 16 Sep 2010.

Howard Lake | 17 May 2006 | News Perhaps, at last, both clients and agencies have come to appreciate the Bain & Co theory that by increasing retention by as little as five per cent profits can increase by as much as ninety five per cent.One only need look at some of the most recent influential advertising campaigns to understand the change in emphasis. The award winning VCCP campaign for O2 is all about highlighting the benefits of remaining a customer whilst the amusing Nationwide campaign is equally targeted at existing customers. And charities, too, are beginning to cotton onto the marketing technique. Stephen Maher, of MBA, Marie Curie’s communications agency says: “Much of the advertising work we do is to help support the charity’s marketing to its current donors, be it to try and upgrade the level of donations or create a legacy.” Tony Clarke, global director of ICLP, the specialist loyalty agency believes that companies, and this includes charities, need to understand better their customers’ behavioural buying patterns and what makes them tick and then respond to them in a personalised and evocative manner. Indeed, we at Teamspirit are seeing a much more significant proportion of the marketing budget going towards communicating with existing customers and giving them the rationale to stay with their original supplier and service provider.So the retention of customers is becoming increasingly important. For the old leaky bucket model of topping up with new customers to replace lost ones is no longer commercially viable. Media is so fragmented that is it becoming prohibitively expensive to target audiences and the competition in the market place has become fiercer. Charities are being forced to redress the balance by marketing more positively to their current customers.Paul Canal, managing director of Charity People concurs and says: “We are certainly placing a greater marketing and sales emphasis on ensuring customer loyalty. It is all about adding value.”Ascertaining the most profitable current and future customers has for a long time been the holy grail. However, with the better harvesting and understanding of customer data it now seems within grasp and thus the ability to communicate to customers in a more personalised way. Clarke of ICLP says: “The 80:20 rule has long been bandied about like confetti at a wedding. But it is now possible to find who your 20% of customers are that deliver 80% of your profit.”To date too many companies have relied on trying to bring in new customers at the expense of looking after their existing ones. For as long as there has been the ability to put on new customers relatively cheaply many charities did not have to tackle the tougher questions of how to keep existing donors happy. CHASE regularly mails their existing donors, encouraging them to increase their regular gift or just reminding them of the wonderful work that they do. However, the charity recognises that it also has to replenish its donor base and occasionally runs direct mail campaigns to a pre-designated, albeit cold, target audience.However, marketing budget realignment will only reap the desired rewards if charities are serious about taking an holistic approach to the whole area of retaining donors. And many practices fail to appreciate the importance of customer service in deepening loyalty. The consumer will stay loyal, but only when the suppliers provide an integrated platform of offerings and service that reflects the projected brand image. To stem the tide companies need to spend more of their budget retaining consumers by developing programmes that produce real insight into behaviour and buying patterns and thus allow for better customer service and reward programmes.So whilst we applaud the change in emphasis away from chasing one’s tail and constantly trying to acquire new donors – historically to the detriment of existing ones – there is still a long way to go before charities can claim to understand and appreciate loyalty. But, at last, they are trying.Jo Parker is Managing Director of Teamspirit. Jo Parker, Managing Director of Teamspirit, tells UK Fundraising that this is the year of the consumer, as marketers for the first time spend more overall on retaining customers rather than on acquiring new ones.2006 is being hailed as the year of the customer. Whilst this may seem a rather fatuous statement, as the customer is always right and should have been central to all marketing in the past, it is intended to highlight the growing importance companies are placing on customer retention. Indeed, recent research confirms what has long been predicted that, for the first time since records began, a larger proportion of marketing budgets is now being spent on retaining existing customers than acquiring new ones.The report confirms that marketing to existing customers is now exceeding that to new customers. The exact figure quoted is that 53% of marketing budget is now being targeted at existing customers. If this is true, then ipso facto, the acquisition of customers is becoming less of a goal than the retention of them.

KHOU(HOUSTON) — A 6-year-old girl whose voice shone a spotlight on the heartbreaking plight of separated families when she was captured on audio asking to call her relatives has finally been reunited with her mother.Alison Jimena Valencia Madrid and her mother, Cindy Madrid, were reunited in the wee hours of Friday morning at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.The two appeared during a news conference later Friday with supporters surrounding the two. Madrid and her lawyer drove five hours overnight to meet Alison at the airport around 3 a.m.“It has been a pleasure to be with my daughter,” Madrid said Friday through a translator. “I am happy. … We are together. It was so beautiful, the moment that I saw her.”In June, the two were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border as they fled El Salvador. According to Madrid’s immigration lawyer Thelma Garcia, Alison was sent to a detention center in Phoenix while Madrid was kept in Texas. Madrid said she did not speak to her daughter for nine days after the separation.The mass separations have been a result of President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance policy. A judge recently ordered that all children are to be reunited with their parents by July 26.Madrid said she was detained for a month and a day.“When I first met her (Cindy) she was so emotional. That’s all she could talk about obviously was the separation. She just described to me [what happened at the border]. … Her child’s name was called out. She walked up to the officer and she literally handed over the child, thinking she was going to go too. And another officer came and took her (Cindy) away,” Garcia said during a news conference Thursday.Alison’s voice could be heard on audio released by ProPublica in June, telling agents that she had her relative’s phone number memorized.“Are you going to call my aunt so that when I’m done eating she can pick me up?” Alison could be heard saying.She was eventually able to contact her aunt via phone and speak to her. Madrid reportedly heard the audio of Alison’s voice and recognized her. Garcia said Madrid then went through a vetting process and had DNA testing done to be reunited with her daughter.Madrid said Friday that she was incredibly proud of Alison and “very thankful” to the person who had sneaked the audio out of the detention center.“Her (Alison’s) voice is what, I think, exploded the Trump administration policy of separating the families and keeping it quiet,” Garcia said. “Had that audio not been sneaked out and not been brought forward the way it was, nobody would have actually known.”Garcia said Friday that Madrid had posted a bond and would be appearing in front of a judge at a date that had not yet been set. Garcia said Madrid would be seeking asylum along with Alison. For now, she said, the two will live with Madrid’s sister in Houston.“We don’t know how fast the case will proceed. … We’ve got a long fight ahead of us,” Garcia said. “The fight is still on.”Madrid said, through a translator, during the news conference Friday that she and Alison had come to the US to get a better life. She said that she’d been seeking safety for her child and encouraged parents in situation similar to hers to “keep fighting.”“Do not give up,” she said. “It’s a hard journey. … But, there is hope. … The law can change.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
