Apartment in the 19th century townhouse in Ljubljana is a place of opposites: it is both warm and cold, both soft and orthagonal. It is equally open and closed against its surroundings and both in contact and in conflict with it’s past. It is an interpolation of two different but visually connected ambients with contrasting identities and materialities: the loft and the salon.Save this picture!© Miran KambičLiving room, furbished in textured and warm materials, reinterprets an Art Nouveau salon. Its layered materiality – ranging from an open fireplace in onyx stone to vintage hardwood floors – is reflected in the round ceiling mirror that acts as an illusionist fresco. The room is ambientally lit: apart from the contemporary chandelier, whose light is reflected in the ceiling mirror and polished stone, the fireplace itself, with light fixtures behing the thin onyx stone, can become a source of light.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe loft, on the other hand, is defined by a grid of aluminium beams, suspended from the ceiling. The grid structures the space – kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and wardrobe volumes are defined by sliding doors, attached to the structural beams. By opening the doors the living space can be extended beyond the dining room into a bedroom and a shower, thus creating functionally diverse ambients that range from straight-forward to complex.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe loft is lit by a system of reflectors, thoughtfully suspended from the grid. The materials, used in this section of the apartment – aluminium, plexi glass, textile, concrete and mirrors – further add to the industrial feeling.Save this picture!© Miran KambičSave this picture!© Miran KambičApartment’s layout allows for a sort of voyeurism: the position on the sofa offers views to the city square, to the fireplace, to the dining table and inside the bedroom, and if we look upwards, even a view upon ourselves. Similarly, sitting at the dining table we can observe the kitchen, bedroom and even the shower, which provocatively borders on the living area.Save this picture!DiagramClosing the sliding doors can create neat and functionally separated spaces. Opening them, on the other hand, can offer us layers of visual experiences that vary from industrial to vintage, from etheric to earthly, from the physical space to its reflection.Save this picture!© Miran KambičProject gallerySee allShow lessTA.R.I Architects Wins Second Prize for a Women’s Complex Competition in SeoulUnbuilt ProjectSeaside Cottage / Sigge Arkkitehdit OySelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ljubljana, SloveniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The project was not a standard investor-architect assignment as one of the authors is also the investor with his partner. Both had dreamt of a non-standard housing in a smaller village near the capital city.Save this picture!© Matej HakárThe aim was to use the potential of the surrounding gardens and view to the countryside. Inside of the house, an emphasis is placed on the functional, material and artistic aspects with an inspirational environment for creation, as both investors are creative professionals.Save this picture!© Matej HakárThe house itself is on a plot of size 446 m² set in the northern part along with a stand for 2 cars, a garage and house entrance. The front south half is a lawn and garden connected barrier-free to the interior. The house is not closing itself from its environment, it is communicating with it.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe two-storey family house layout is divided into a ground floor with a living area with an open gallery, toilet, garage and technical room and the first floor with a study, relaxation zone, bathroom and toilet. When designing the layout, emphasis was placed on the maximum openness inside-out. The night-time part of the house is orientated to the eastern side, with the morning sun. The residential part on the ground floor is oriented to all the world sides. This way the interior is illuminated throughout the day.The overhang roof on the south side of the house helps shade the house out of the strong sun during the summer months. In winter months the solar rays are sinking into the interior and this way the house gains more energy.Save this picture!© Matej HakárSince the object was built independently, it was designed from easily accessible and labor-friendly materials. The ground floor is an open space, where the 1st floor is supported with two load-bearing walls, separating the residential part from the garage and the technical room. The floor is designed as an open space and is divided only by traverse walls – the wooden roof is not supported and lies only on the perimeter masonry.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricThe façade is designed in white acrylic with details around windows glazed façade cladding in a black gloss finish. The windows openings are in an aluminum system. The windows are in a black, glossy finish with internal white textile shading.Save this picture!© Matej HakárThe uniqueness of the design of the house supports the surface treatment of a roof made of a white liquid membrane. The unification of facade and roof surfaces unifies the shape of the house and helps to express the architecture of the house itself.Save this picture!© Matej HakárThe interior has an austere material solution. Each room has a basic white chroma, and is always complemented by a wooden detail.Save this picture!© Matej HakárA great importance was placed on the element of the interior and the exterior lighting – in its design, function and technical aspects. Lighting becomes the jewel of the house, bringing home high-quality lighting and emotion through various lighting scenes.

Completed fall 2019 in Sharon, CT, the home was commissioned by a family who first employed the firm to design two ancillary structures on the property, which ultimately inspired the final home and focal point of the property. Led by principal and cofounder Rafe Churchill, the architectural design maintains an accurate respect for an adherence to Greek Revival tradition.Save this picture!© Tim LenzSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Tim LenzWhile presented formally, the home ultimately remains understated in its detailing and composition with three predominant tenets: to take full advantage of the unique and pastoral setting of the site, embrace the historical location and architectural context of the main house, and create a home for a young family conducive to contemporary living.Save this picture!© Tim LenzAs Asher Benjamin was a major proponent of the Greek Revival style in early America, the order and proportions of the home were derived from his 1830 treatise, The Practical House Carpenter. Inspiration was also found in local precedents, as well as the work of Benjamin Henry Latrobe and William Strickland.Save this picture!© Tim LenzThe home is located in the Oblong Valley, which runs from the foothills of the Berkshires for sixty miles along the Connecticut-New York border. Just two miles wide, the valley has maintained its character of gentle rolling hills, open pastures, and ancient woods since Colonial times. It was key to balance the stature of the house with the magnitude of the landscape in which it sits, while also keeping it appropriate to the area’s architectural vernacular. The client’s love of the surrounding historic houses of the Hudson Valley gave a shared momentum to our proposal of a modern-day American Greek Revival house. Their one stipulation: while the house should appear majestic in its bearing, it was to feel like a family home.Save this picture!© Tim LenzThe grand front portico forms the central reference to the proportions of the rest of the building. Linked by two hyphens, the central colossal hall runs outward to two symmetrical first floor wings  to the east the dining room, formal living room, sunroom and screened porch; to the west the large open-planned kitchen, informal dining, living areas, mudroom, laundry, study, and bathroom. Behind the colossal lies a large family room overlooking a formal garden parterre and swimming pool.Save this picture!© Tim LenzThe house’s west entrance features a scaled-down portico with Grecian Doric columns. While more fitting as the day- to-day entrance to the house, the mudroom, into which it leads, enjoys similarly scaled proportions. Lined with open shelving, beadboard, and coat hooks – and its proximity to the laundry, complete with dog washing station – the mudroom entry resonates with practical family life.Save this picture!© Tim LenzThe kitchen with informal seating is open to a shared breakfast and sitting area. A large table in the living room and dining room overlaps function in a single space. While the interior millwork follows from the Greek Revival tradition, the combined use of rooms speaks to less formal and more contemporary living.Save this picture!© Tim LenzProject gallerySee allShow lessMason Resort / VaSLab ArchitectureSelected ProjectsIguana House / OBRA BLANCASelected Projects Share 2019 Oblong Valley Greek Revival / Hendricks Churchill Save this picture!© Tim Lenz+ 26Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936403/oblong-valley-greek-revival-hendricks-churchill Clipboardlast_img read more

Before the intervention, it had 3 floors, a ground floor for commercial use and two upper floors with one house per floor.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!3rd floor planSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazAfter a preliminary study of the possible distribution solutions for the new homes, we decided to propose a two-apartment building that is developed on a ground floor, two upper floors and a last floor set back 3 m. with respect to the main facade, as established by urban regulations.In choosing the technical solutions, systems were chosen that would allow controlling the demand for heating and cooling, trying to achieve high energy control, mainly through passive measures with the support of active energy efficient systems.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazOn the ground floor is the access, the common services of the building and the annexes (storage room, laundry room and clothesline) of the two houses. The first floor is occupied by a one-bedroom house, and the program for a 3-bedroom house is developed on the second and third floors.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe proposed construction solutions are characterized by the use of traditional and local materials, such as the pine wood used in the structure, in the light framework system of the enclosures, and the chestnut wood of the exterior carpentry the pavement; a very high thermal insulation, a high air tightness, a thermal installation consisting of low consumption aerothermal and underfloor heating, and controlled mechanical ventilation.Save this picture!SectionAs these are social rental housing , we consider it essential from the beginning of the project to reduce as much as possible the economic bill associated with the energy costs of the facilities, which future tenants will have to assume, so the final objective was to at all times, build a low-consumption building at affordable costs, with a very low energy demand and an efficiency above the standards established by the regulations.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazProject gallerySee allShow lessEmpilhado [SnJ] Building Renovation / 3dF desarrollosSelected ProjectsAzul Nomeolvides Vacation Home / Samantha CalzadaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rúa do Vilar, 5, 32005 Orense, Ourense, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

BBC Children in Need raises £20,991,216 on the night

The figure, higher than last year’s total and a record for the appeal, suggests that the credit crunch and recession have still not had an impact on public and corporate giving for this high-profile cause at least.Presented by Terry Wogan, Tess Daly and Fearne Cotton, this year’s campaign theme was “Do Something Different”.BBC Radio 2 listeners helped raise £2 million, with one anonymous caller bidding £100,000 in the Auction Of Things Money Can’t Buy for a guitar master class with Mark Knopfler.Photo: theystolemyidLast year’s campaign raised £19,089,771 on the night, going on to reach a total of £37 million. This year’s total therefore is likely to pass that figure.Since 1990 the appeal has now raised over half a billion pounds.The next closing date for applications for funding from BBC Children in Need is 15 January 2009. The charity awards grants to organisations working with children aged 18 and under who have mental, physical or sensory disabilities; behavioural or psychological disorders; are living in poverty or situations of deprivation; or suffering through distress, abuse or neglect.http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/news/news141108d.shtml About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Workers World Party election campaign underway

first_imgNew York CityIn front of Trump Tower in New York City on June 14, two days after the Orlando mass shootings, the Workers World Party 2016 election campaign held a protest to tell racist Donald Trump: “Don’t use the Orlando massacre to whip up Islamophobia!” June 14 marked the 70th birthday of the billionaire Republican Party presidential nominee.Members, friends and allies joined WWP presidential candidate Monica Moorehead on a picket line to confront pro-Trump supporters and expose Trump’s divide-and-conquer rhetoric as he tries to win over white workers to his white supremacist views.Moorehead said in a press statement: “Trump, who does not care about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and mostly Latino/a victims of the Orlando massacre, is already trying to use this terrible tragedy to whip up racism against Muslims. As the people’s movement embraces the LGBTQ community at this difficult time of mourning and healing, we will also strengthen our solidarity with our Arab, Asian, African, Latino/a and Muslim sisters and brothers. We will not allow either Trump or Hillary Clinton to use Orlando to generate bigotry and war fever. Nor will we allow the government to use Orlando as an excuse to intensify police surveillance and repression against Muslims.”Trenton, N.J.WWP files in New JerseyMoorehead is a revolutionary Black woman running for president who lives in New Jersey, so why shouldn’t she be on the Garden State ballot?Socialists and other activists went to Trenton, N.J., on June 15 to file petitions putting Workers World Party candidates Monica Moorehead and her running mate Lamont Lilly on the ballot.Nearly 1,500 signatures were collected, almost twice the number required. After the filing, WWP supporters confronted Donald Trump’s sidekick, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who jump-started his political career by framing Muslims known as the Fort Dix Five.New Jersey is a rich state, but nearly a third of Trenton’s people live in poverty. The Moorehead-Lilly campaign is part of the fightback.BaltimoreBaltimore candidates endorse fightbackSpeaking at a June 14 press conference in Baltimore, Andre Powell, an independent socialist candidate and a leader of Workers World Party, explained, “Today is Trump’s birthday, and we wanted to send him a special message that his hate and division will not be tolerated. Given the painful and tragic events in Orlando this week, it is all the more important to deliver this message.” Powell is an openly gay candidate in Baltimore’s race for mayor in November.David Card, one of the co-chairs of the Maryland campaign for Moorehead and Lilly, pointed out that June 14 also marks an international day of solidarity with French workers. Card spoke about the importance of international workers’ solidarity.Lee Patterson, a staff volunteer with the campaign, read the Moorehead/Lilly campaign’s “Birthday message to racist billionaire Donald Trump.”Powell and Sharon Black, who is running for Baltimore City Council president, announced their endorsement of the Moorehead/Lilly campaign and of Nnamdi Scott from the Ujima People’s Progress Party, who is running for the 7th District Council seat.The press conference took place at the site where, the night before, a vigil for the Pulse nightclub martyrs had drawn thousands.

Sixth journalist killed since start of year, robbery ruled out

first_img RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America May 13, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts April 13, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sixth journalist killed since start of year, robbery ruled out Organisation News December 28, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Honduras HondurasAmericas Help by sharing this information center_img HondurasAmericas RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” News to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Journalists are continuing to be murdered in Honduras. Radio W105 presenter Luis Antonio Chévez Hernández was gunned down in San Pedro Sula, the country’s business capital, on 11 April, following a particularly violent month of March in which five journalists were slain.Aged 22 and nicknamed “El Huevo” (The Egg), Chévez and a cousin were getting out of a car outside Chévez’s house when they were shot by unidentified gunmens, who fleds the scene. The motive is still unknown but the police have ruled out robbery as a sizable sum of money was found in the victims’ belongings.Witnesses said they had seen strangers lurking near the house prior to the arrival of Chévez and his cousin.“We cannot stand this wave of violence any longer,” a member of the journalist’s family said. No one has been brought to justice for any of the murders, physical attacks or threats against journalists since the June 2009 coup d’état. The repression since the coup has compounded the already high level of violence of a criminal nature. Reporters Without Borders is meanwhile also concerned about the impact of a military deployment in the Aguán region where journalist Nahúm Palacios was gunned down on 14 March after being threatened by soldiers.(Photo : La Tribuna)_______02.04.2010 – Month of violence turns Honduras into world’s most dangerous country for journalists“We are unable to provide you with protection,” the police in the western town of San Marcos de Ocotepeque told journalist José Alemán after gunmen tried to kill him on 26 March. The correspondent of Radio América and the Diario Tiempo newspaper, Alemán fled the country after being told this. His departure ended a month in which five other journalists were murdered.Alemán took the risk of reporting violations of free expression and human rights that have taken place since last June’s coup d’état. Shortly after he received telephone threats, two gunmen opened fire on his home in his absence. He was then pursued through the streets but managed to escape.The five murders and the flight into exile in the space of one month mean that Honduras was the world’s most dangerous country for journalists in the first quarter of 2010. No one has been brought to justice for any of the murders or any of the physical attacks or acts of intimidation or censorship of journalists and human rights activists since last June’s coup.The coup lives on in what continues to take place. Worse still, the government installed after the controversial 29 November elections appointed one of the coup’s generals, Romeo Vásquez Velásquez, on 8 March to head the state telecommunications company, Hondutel. His appointment is an incentive to further impunity.Reporters Without Borders is one of the signatories of a petition addressed to Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, whose government currently holds the European Union’s rotating presidency. A resolution is needed at the European level, and other levels, urging the new Honduran government to react to this collapse of the rule of law.(Photo : AFP)__________27.03.10 – Two journalists gunned down in ambush, bringing media death toll in March to fiveReporters Without Borders offers its condolences to the relatives and colleagues of local radio journalists Bayardo Mairena and Manuel Juárez, who were ambushed and slain by gunmen on 26 March in eastern Honduras. After spraying their car with bullets, the gunmen cold-bloodedly finished them off with shots fire at close range, witnesses said.Their deaths bring the number of journalists killed in Honduras since the start of the year to five. All of these murders took place in March.“Honduras and Mexico rank as the western hemisphere’s two deadliest countries by far for journalists in 2010,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Five have been killed in Honduras even if investigators have not yet completely established the motive in some cases. Aside from the problem of organised crime, the Honduran media continue to be major targets of the post-coup repression. We urge the authorities to act energetically to curb this violence and identify those responsible.”Mairena and Juarez were ambushed near Juticalpa, in the eastern province of Olancho, while on their way back from hosting a radio programme in Catacamas. Colleagues described Mairena, 52, as a radio journalism pioneer in Olancho province. Juárez, 55, had worked for Radio Nacional for years.The head of the Honduran Press Association urged President Porfirio Lobo to rein in the wave of killings of journalists. Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about recent threats against the staff of Radio Uno, a privately-owned opposition station in San Pedro Sula. Despite being in the army’s sights since last June’s coup d’état, it continues to take risks by covering human rights violations. Reports RSF_en last_img read more

MCHS music ministry brings patients joy

first_img The First Baptist Church Hospital Ministry, made up of hospital employees and church members, sing to people waiting in the Medical Center Hospital ICU waiting area, Friday, February 16, 2018. Twitter WhatsApp By admin – February 17, 2018 Facebook Gelara and Bernabe started the music ministry on Jan. 9, 2017. Their first recipient was actually a patient that was in hospice. The woman was receiving hospice care at her home and was doing a wedding vow renewal and they decided to make music part of the package. After that, it stuck.“He called me and said, ‘Hey Faith, are you willing to sing for a patient if I have a patient that is really, really down and needs to be lifted up?’ And I said, ‘yes, I’d be happy to do that,’” Bernabe said.The experience to Bernabe is priceless and very rewarding.“What keeps me going back is to be able to know that by doing this, by singing for the patient, it will help them ease the pain and bring joy to their heart every time they hear the music,” she said.Bernabe said many of the patients will start crying when they play, but the tears are tears of joy.Speidel can attest to that. She said she cried because it meant so much to her and her husband.“I was born in Kermit and I went to church around here all my life and there’s just nothing like it. Sometimes people leave the church for one reason or another, but when you start bringing that music back in that has special meaning, it renews all those feelings and the blessings that you’ve received (over) all the years,” Speidel said.Gelara said there is evidence that music plays an important role while a patient is in the hospital.“Let me remind you though, we are not music therapists in the sense that we don’t have a degree in music therapy. We do it from the goodness and the kindness of our hearts to bring something different aside from the medical aspect of care, meaning antibiotics and things like, you know, breathing treatments and things like that,” he said.“Music plays a different role when patients are sick. It gives them inspiration. It gives them hope. It allows them to express their feelings, per say.”Bernabe said she sometimes sings songs that she wrote when she was 14 years old. She tells patients the story behind the song and said they often get excited about it. Some of the songs are on the inspirational side or are praise and worship songs. Songs like “Amazing Grace,” or “How Great Thou Art.”Speidel said whether you’re religious or not, it is still beautiful music and a beautiful experience.“It’s not hell and high water, it’s absolutely beautiful. You see people in their 70s, 80s, different ages. That’s when something is right. When you have a lot of different ages together and they all feel the same thing in their heart. That is a true blessing,” she said.The two specifically dedicate their Fridays to doing music ministry, but they also do it on an “as needed” basis, Gelara said. If they see a patient that is feeling down, they’ll pop into their room and play, or sometimes they will even sing for the nurses, just to brighten up their day.“Even when we are just practicing here and somebody would hear us, they would hear Faith outside and they would come in and say, hey, could you come sing to my mom? And we would go there,” Gelara said.All of the patients they have sung for are dear to them, Bernabe said.“Before we go into a patient’s room I sincerely thing about, OK, I’m gonna do this just to help this patient, you know. And so I think almost all of them are memorable to me and it’s an honor to do this (for) our patients because I know they needed it and it helps,” she said.The music ministry is purely voluntary and Gelara and Bernabe have had a group of men come and sing a few times for patients, as well. Gelara said he hopes the program expands and other volunteers come in to play music and sing.Those who are interested can call Dr. Gelara at the Palliative Care office at 432-640-1511.“I look forward, and I hope other people look forward to a song ministry,” Speidel said. “I wouldn’t take anything for it, I’ll never forget it. I’m 70 and to the day I die I will never forget the music ministry that came into this room. Never.” Hospital employee Faith Bernabe sings and plays the guitar to people waiting in the Medical Center Hospital ICU waiting area, Friday, February 16, 2018.

Local News MCHS music ministry brings patients joy Palliative Care at Medical Center HospitalBarbara Speidel sat on her hospital bed in a tied-back gown peering up through her glasses with light blue eyes as she talked about an unexpected blessing she recently experienced.The 70-year-old has been staying at Medical Center Hospital to receive palliative care, but ended up getting so much more than she expected. Palliative care is similar to hospice, but specialized for people with serious illness or a chronic condition such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease or dementia that focuses on symptom management for as long as an illness lasts.What surprised Speidel was during her hospital stay, she received a visit she says touched every fiber of her being. Dr. Albino Gelara, advanced nurse practitioner in palliative care, and Faith Bernabe, performance improvement specialist at MCH have been playing music and singing to palliative care patients every Friday for about a year.“All that I can say is that it touched me all the way to my core. It really touched me and God bless them for having this type of ministry here in a hospital. Where could it be more needed and more necessary, more wanted, than in a hospital?” Speidel said.center_img Twitter Facebook Delfina Rubio listens to the music while waiting for a family member in the ICU waiting area.
