In a large plot of land in the neighborhood of Belgrano, a low-scale building project, intended for multifamily housing, that typologically alternates 15 units of various sizes. The architectural structure is developed looking for the preservation of a special inherited element: an old oak near the internal front line. A specially designed core achieves four units per floor, all with private palier in the type plants (1st to 3rd). In the front, three-bedroom units with wide living rooms are developed and the back-side presents units of 4 bedrooms and large terraces.The latter is removed from the second floor to make room for the existing oak. As the final finish of the project, retreats and outdoor terraces generate diverse external situations.On the fourth floor, the front retreat conceives a single three-bedroom apartment with a desk and a horizontally elongated living room. While two three-bedroom units with their own terraces are developed to the quiet part of the building.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe interior design offers free and bright spaces, generating a sense of spaciousness, functionalism, and comfort. In the ground floor and subsoil there are 24 parking spaces and at the end of the lot, a complementary construction of picturesque character is put in value, functionalizing it to serve as support to the existing pool. The front facade is proposed to strengthen the horizontal proportion of the building through a concrete grid that emphasizes the horizontal lines and a neutral and uniform ground floor enclosure in all its extension. In the quiet part of the building the same criterion is used, but generating a withdrawal of the expansions that leaves the protagonist to the oak.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaProject gallerySee allShow lessDelancey and Essex Parking Garage / Michielli + Wyetzner ArchitectsSelected ProjectsInternational Open Call For Exhibition Project at VI PER Gallery in PragueCall for SubmissionsProject locationAddress:Gral.

In recent years, the enormous impact climate change has on the human environment has been the biggest issue of all. As architects, we understand that we need to take action to contribute, even if small, to reduce the impact on the environment through our products.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungThe impact of climate change is extremely serious, with rising temperatures and sea level year by year; This year, Vietnam suffered 13 storms, and 22 with the Philippines, these included the strongest storms in 2020 followed by many catastrophes with great devastation such as floods, landslides,…. However, most people in developing countries like Vietnam do not acknowledge the severity of climate change. Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungThere are reasons for such situations in developing countries. According to FAO, deforestation figures in Vietnam ranked second in the world. Along with deforestation, there is El Nino which also caused storms, floods, and landslides … As of October 2020, Vietnam had a total of 153 people died or missing due to natural disasters.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungAs architects, we want to change people’s awareness, and at the same time, offer solutions to limit negative impacts on the environment. Furthermore, we also want to inspire other colleagues to create a better living environment. House of One Piece is one of our projects which represents that belief.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungSave this picture!Section 01Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungThis house has a total area of 250 square meters in Da Nang and is designed for a young couple and their two young children. Our goal is to create the eco-friendliest home. This house takes advantage of natural energy power sources to limit the use of fossil energy; It also reduces a part of water resources.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungThe ground floor has one living room, a kitchen, one guest bedroom, a storeroom, and a laundry room. The kitchen and the living room are connected in an order to create big and flexible space, as well as to reduce the constructed area, and leave more space for the garden. All rooms face the garden through big transparent sliding windows, which help create the best ventilation for the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungThe worship room, working room, and two more bedrooms are located on the first floor of House of One Piece and face the garden. They are also equipped with slide windows to maximize the airflow, especially the air from the sea nearby. The difference between the first floor and the ground floor is, the first floor is equipped with shutter windows. This helps reduce the sunlight when needed.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungSave this picture!Right ElevationSave this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungOn the rooftop, there are a small playground and an herb garden that produces enough vegetables for daily use. The herb garden uses non-toxic chemical which is safe for human and pet; it also uses a circulated watering system which automatically controls temperature and humidity; preserves and redistributes water from the rain. After four years with several projects, we acknowledge that, on the same concrete floor, the tree-planted area has better conditions than others. Non-tree area has cracks on its surface leading to water leakage. Therefore, in my opinion, I encourage people to plant trees on their rooftop. It is not only better for the environment but also protects your construction.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungSave this picture!Water Analysis DiagramAs calculated, by taking advantage of natural light, planting trees for heat radiation reduction, and utilizing the automatically circulated watering system, House of One Piece has a 30% energy reduction use for lighting and air-conditioning. These solutions do not only save energy but also protect the construction from harmful factors of the environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungTo conclude, we architects hope we could inspire other colleagues to develop more projects like this to reality and to change the awareness of future generations toward mother earth.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungProject gallerySee allShow lessCote Rocheuse Winery / Severin ProjectSelected ProjectsNT House / 2929DesignLabSelected Projects Share Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu Dung+ 43Curated by Hana Abdel Share Architects: 85 Design Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Vietnam Vietnam 2020 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Year:  House of One Piece / 85 DesignSave this projectSaveHouse of One Piece / 85 Design CopyAbout this office85 DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDa Nangroof gardenOn FacebookVietnamPublished on November 26, 2020Cite: “House of One Piece / 85 Design” 25 Nov 2020.

14 charities hold house to house exemption orders in N Ireland

first_img Fourteen charities currently hold exemption orders to carry out house to house collections across Northern Ireland, according to the latest information from the Department of Communities.An exemption order is a document which excuses an organisation pursuing a charitable purpose from seeking separate licences from each local police station to allow a house to house collection to take place in that area.It does not cover street collections for which permits must be sought from the local police stations in the areas where a street collection is to take place.The charities with exemption orders include local, national and developing world charities such as Northern Ireland Institute for the Disabled, Royal Air Forces Association, Royal British Legion, the Salvation Army and Trocaire.How to secure an exemption orderIf collections are to be regularly carried out province wide then the organisation may apply to the Charities Team in the Department of Communities for an exemption order. This avoids any inconvenience from submitting multiple applications to the police.Before making an exemption order, the Department considers whether there is a desire to promote house to house collections throughout the whole of Northern Ireland (or a substantial part of it) and also the ‘track record’ of collections by the organisation over a reasonable period of time before the application.While there is no legal obligation is placed on holders of an exemption order to notify the police when and where a collection is to be held, to avoid a number of organisations collecting in the same area at the same time, it is recommended that the police are notified of an intention to collect in an area at least six weeks in advance.Exemption orders are currently made under section 3 of the House to House Charitable Collections Act (Northern Ireland) 1952. The Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008 contains provision for a new regulatory regime for public charitable collections, though no date has been set for bringing the new regulatory regime into operation.

Second journalist in a week narrowly escapes murder attempt

Labares was on his scooter when two men on a motorcycle shot him the back. Aged 48, married and the father of two children, he is still in a critical condition, his colleagues told Reporters Without Borders. to go further Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information News February 16, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Also known as “Babayeng Bagol,” Labares is currently being treated in a Cagayan de Oro hospital, where he is conscious but in a critical condition. The bullet hit his liver, and doctors had to remove a kidney. A second operation was carried out today.Labares hosts a daily programme on DXCC, a popular station that is part of the Radio Mindanao Network (RMN). His colleagues told Reporters Without Borders he often covers corruption and illegal activities such as clandestine gambling. A DXCC journalist said Labares told his colleagues he had been threatened. He said he had been contacted by the emissary of a “powerful” local figure who had told him he would “pay dearly” if he continued to denounce illegal video game centres.Cagayan de Oro deputy mayor Emano Labares said the radio presenter could have been targeted because of his criticism of illegal gambling. He said he had ordered the city’s police to do everything possible to find the two gunmen. “My policy is for them to shoot the suspects if they resist – no more allowing them to flee,” he told radio DZXL.President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s spokesman, Cerge Remonde, condemned the shooting and said the president had ordered the national police chief “to leave no stone unturned to ensure justice is done and identify the killers.”A police “task force” has been created in Cagayan de Oro to carry out the investigation. A suspect has reportedly been identified but so far no arrest has been made. The local press club is meanwhile carrying out its own investigation.

This climate of violence is encouraged by the lack of progress in certain cases in Mindanao and the glaring failure to punish those behind the murders of journalists. Why have the police been unable to arrest those who paid for Marlene Esperat and Edgar Damalerio to be killed?”The press freedom organisation added: “This string of violent attacks has turned Mindanao island into one of the world’s most dangerous places for journalists and we therefore ask the government to reinforce the police there.”last_img read more

Border police beat Agence France-Presse photographer

first_img December 19, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Border police beat Agence France-Presse photographer to go further News Organisation Receive email alerts IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Israel WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists “Using the excuse of the fight against Palestinian terrorism, the Israeli authorities can freely threaten and physically attack journalists who live and work in the Occupied Territories,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.”We demand that this incident, like others, be investigated and that those responsible be punished for violating press freedom. The Israeli army’s promise to curb the violent behaviour of some of its troops against journalists has unfortunately very rarely been kept,” he said.Achtiye was beaten by two Israeli border policemen when he arrived at the crossing point between Nablus and the town of Salim, even though they knew he was a journalist. They threatened to seize his camera but changed their mind when they saw no pictures had been taken. Before they let him go, they threatened to kill him if he ever returned.Reporters Without Borders notes that obstruction of the media covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has reached alarming proportions this year.- Three journalists have been killed in the Occupied Territories, including Raffaele Ciriello, a reporter for the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, in Ramallah on 13 March. These deaths were caused by excessive use of force by the Israeli army, which has not investigated the incidents despite its promises to do so.- Eight journalists, including two French and an American, have been wounded by gunfire while reporting in Palestinian towns occupied by the Israeli army. In most cases, they were clearly identifiable as journalists and were no danger to the soldiers. They were wounded by warning or intimidatory shots not intended to kill them but sometimes seriously wounding them.- A dozen Palestinian journalists have been imprisoned without trial or sentence, using the device of “administrative detention,” for periods of between one and eight months. Two of them, Khalid Ali Mohammed Zwawi and Nizar Ramadan, are still being held, respectively since April and June, though Israeli officials have given no indication of why.- Dozens of journalists in the Occupied Territories have been threatened, physically attacked, targeted at army checkpoints or had their equipment seized. Those responsible for these violations of press freedom are apparently rarely punished and a feeling of impunity pervades the Israeli army.- For the past two years, the Israeli government press office has only renewed a few press cards of Palestinian journalists, some of whom are long-standing correspondents for international news agencies, such as Reuters, Associated Press and AFP.The Israeli army’s failure to take action about these many press freedom violations, along with accusations by senior government officials that the foreign media are abusing Israeli hospitality, and are biased and lazy, are signs of growing hostility to the foreign media. As well as being especially violent, this strategy aims to reduce the sources of information and control foreign coverage of the conflict.The allegations of “massacres” after the fighting between the Israeli army and Palestinians in the Jenin refugee camp in April 2002 are an example of the harmful effects of a policy that aims to limit information and keep journalists out.
