Our brief for the Pittwater house was to create a beach house for a retired couple that was large enough for their extended family of children and grandchildren to visit and stay. The character of the house was to be reminiscent of the early Palm Beach houses, with a stone base and timber cladding above. The footprint of the house was pre-determined by an existing DA for the property.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe site is located on the thin, flat strip of land that runs between the Palm Beach ridgeline escarpment and Pittwater. This distinct geography gives these waterfront properties a dual public face public street frontage along Barrenjoey Rd and public beach frontage on the Pittwater edge.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsOut of this brief and the particularities of the site 3 considerations shaped our conceptual framework for the project:• How to moderate the scale pressures that come from the contemporary program of the beach house as a multi-generational gathering point – a pressure which often bloats the scale of new dwellings to the point that there is no commonality with the small footprint weekenders that determined the favourable landscape character of the area in the first place.• How to create thresholds that could connect with the Pittwater geography whilst being able to provide complete privacy from the dual public face of the street to the east and the beachfront to the west.• How to find a distinct contemporary expression of the early vernacular stone and timber beach house.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsOur strategy was to divide the footprint of the house into two identical pavilions addressing either the street or the beach, connected by a north facing double height indoor/outdoor room that housed the kitchen and dining room. This manipulation of the overall building form within the requested footprint more than halved the perceptible size of the house as viewed from the public realm of the street or the beach.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsIn response to the request for privacy, particularly on the beach front façade, we developed a thickened threshold characterized by an operable façade borrowing the functional technology of the many boats adjacent the house. Using a rope and pulley system on stainless steel outriggers driven by linear actuators, the façade can be opened and closed to provide infinite combinations of shade, exposure and privacy in relation to the western orientation and views over Pittwater.Save this picture!Detail SectionIn developing the material character of the house we attempted to give each of the two materials used – timber and stone – their own distinct monolithic quality to heighten the simple play on the layering of the early vernacular beach house. The monolithic quality of the stone was developed through the use of thick, carefully shaped thresholds that imbued the stone with a carved quality.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe monolithic quality of the timber was developed through a carefully orchestrated relationship of timber elements where there was no visible distinction in language between a customized recycled tallow wood cladding, screen system, and doors and windows.Save this picture!Plans, ElevationsProject gallerySee allShow lessDAf Offices / Albert TidySelected ProjectsFriedrich Bayer Bridge / LoebCapote Arquitetura e UrbanismoSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/544990/pittwater-house-andrew-burges-architects Clipboard Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/544990/pittwater-house-andrew-burges-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

The owner had a finished project of the garden, in advanced stages of implementation. And only the house was missing. Something that at first seemed to be a ridiculous reversal of the course of things, once it was explained, became absolutely logical for us. He wanted to be able to enjoy the garden to its full extent after the completion of the construction and moving in. Plants need much more time to reach their target size than it takes to build even such a large house. You might plant big trees, after all, however, it is costly and not environmentally friendly.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!Situation planSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe nature lover turned idle land into a beautiful green oasis with a lake and a smooth road to the place where the house was meant to be located, also assumed as an art gallery. The curves, which he enjoyed moving around on, inspired us. The ground floor of the house with the daytime part forms a continuation of these curves and fits in softly with the surroundings. This impression is complemented by the grey concrete used on the facades, which refers to the colour of the existing, stone road, being the starting point of the project. The rounded form clearly separates the driveway from the rest of the garden, providing the residents with intimacy and silence.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe ground floor is contrasted with the white minimalist body of the floor. Two different geometries clash and a softly cut atrium is a link between both floors. The garden surrounding the house from almost all sides flows into its interior through the semi-atrium at ground floor level. We had only a minimal influence on the garden, so we treated it as a natural element that cannot be chosen. Hence the name of the design.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczAnother important aspect was the investor’s wish to expose his rich art collections. Therefore, on the ground floor and the first floor, we created additional, large-size spaces designed exclusively for art exhibitions. The host can organize vernissages for a large number of people. Moreover, we placed the most important functions of the house within close proximity to each other to make it user-friendly.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe large shutters on the south and west elevations are not only of formal importance – finished with the same plaster as the walls, but they also close up the building in a uniform shape and, above all, protect valuable art collections from harmful sunlight.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe aim to improve the quality of the surrounding space is non-standard and surprising. Due to the chaos of buildings and lack of vegetation, he regreens the vast areas of idle land surrounding him. He is creating gardens, and then the construction of houses of different sizes follows up. We support him in creating green urban planning and providing friendly, sustainable space to live in, with plenty of greenery for free, thus improving the quality of urban air.The entire housing estate, just like his house, use alternative sources of energy.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma to Design Milan’s Biophilic Office of the FutureArchitecture NewsWorld’s First Space Hotel to Open in 2027Architecture News Share “COPY” Manufacturers: Diasen, Ideal Work, Sto, Baier, Berndorf, ERCO lighting, Hörmman, Leon, Sapa, XAL Lightning CopyAbout this officeKWK PromesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLakaOn FacebookŁąkaPolandPublished on March 15, 2021Cite: “From the Garden House / KWK Promes” 15 Mar 2021.

Supreme court upholds three-year jail term for Hamma Hammami

first_img Receive email alerts RSF_en Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder News Reporters Without Borders said it was “appalled” by the Tunisian supreme court’s confirmation today of a three years and two months prison sentence for subversion imposed last March on Hamma Hammami (see photo), leader of the Tunisian Workers’ Party (PCOT) and managing editor of the party newspaper El-Badil. “We are appalled by this decision, which shows the determination of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali’s regime to silence all opposition voices,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “Since the beginning, the rules for a fair trial have not been respected. The Tunisian authorities are no longer bothering with formalities where punishing opposition figures is concerned.”He called on the president to “immediately and unconditionally” release Hammami, who he said had been simply exercising his right to freedom of expression. The supreme court took only a few minutes behind closed doors to reject Hammami’s appeal against the March sentence. His lawyers and two foreign observers were barred from the hearing. Hammami had been sentenced on 31 March by a Tunis appeals court. Two associates, Abdeljabar Madouri and Samir Taamallah, were jailed for respectively three years and nine months and one year and nine months. They were accused of belonging to and operating an illegal organisation (the PCOT), distributing leaflets, “putting out false news,” holding illegal meetings and inciting rebellion and lawbreaking. They had initially each been sentenced in absentia in 1999 to nine years and three months in prison. They came out of hiding after four years on 2 February this year when, after a show trial, their sentences were confirmed.

Letter to information minister about South African journalist held overnight

first_img RSF_en Reports News NamibiaAfrica The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reporters Without Borders wrote to information and communications technology minister Joel Kaapanda on 5 December to call for the withdrawal of all charges against South African TV journalist Bonita Nuttall, who was arrested on 28 November for doing a report in Namibia after entering the country on a tourist visa.Nuttall was freed on bail the next day after being held overnight and is due to be tried in February. The Reporters Without Borders letter also urged the government to ease Namibia’s relevant legislation, which imposes too many restrictions on foreign journalists wanting to work there.“We deplore the fact that Ms. Nuttall had to spend the night in a holding cell and pay bail twice in order to be released,” the letter said. “Namibia is one of the African countries that most respect press freedom, but we think it was an abuse of authority to have placed Ms. Nuttall in detention. It was out of all proportion to her offence, counter-productive and damaging for Namibia’s image. This incident would not have occurred if Namibia’s legislation allowed the press more freedom to work.”A presenter on the South African TV station M-Net’s investigative programme “Carte Blanche,” Nuttall was arrested at Windhoek international airport as she was about to depart on 28 November. After spending the night in a holding cell at the airport, she was released the next day on bail of 2,000 Namibian dollars (153 euros) pending an initial court appearance. On 3 December, a Windhoek court ordered her to pay additional bail of 8,000 Namibian dollars (615 euros) pending trial in February.She was arrested for doing a report about the nomadic Himba ethnic group without first obtaining the temporary residence and work permits which Namibia requires for foreign journalists.Namibian newspaper editors meanwhile called at the end of last month for the withdrawal of a clause from a communication bill that would allow the intelligence services to tap phones and monitor email without referring to a court. The Media Institute of Southern Africa is strongly opposed to the bill, which it says would represent a setback for free expression.Namibia was ranked 23rd out of 173 countries in the world press freedom index which Reporters Without Borders released on 22 October.

Moving companies gear up for peak season

first_img Twitter WhatsApp Moving companies gear up for peak season By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Pinterest Facebook Local News Facebookcenter_img Brothers Moving and Storage employees pack up the contents of a house in preparation for moving. Crissy Hillis packs up framed art work for the move. Demand for professional movers spikes during the summer months and local companies say manpower may be unavailable for those that wait too long to hire help. The moving industry picks up significantly more business between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Amy Martin, an office assistant at Brothers Moving & Storage in Odessa, said the busy moving season reaches its peak in June and July with many preferring to hold off moving until the end of the school year. She said relocation to a new home or school district is often a smoother transition for families when it occurs during the summer break. Martin said residents should book and secure moving assistance as soon as they find out their closing date on a home or are nearing the end of their apartment lease because available appointment spots fill up fast. The company’s owner, Paul Woodruff, said two to three weeks is not that far out in advance to hire professional movers and advised those relocating to at least aim to book a move a month, if not several months, out. “Don’t wait until the week of or two days before,” Woodruff said. “You will be without moving assistance.” Texas registered as U-Haul’s No. 1 growth state in America for the third consecutive year, a 2018 U-Haul migration trends report stated. U-Haul growth state data is calculated by the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a state versus leaving that state during a calendar year, and the information collected compiles more than two million one-way U-Haul truck sharing transactions, their website states. Woodruff said the demand for movers can be hard to meet with oil production in the Permian Basin at a high. He said companies like his are affected by not only by the influx of people moving to Midland-Odessa, but also the labor pool from which he is able to employ eligible workers for labor services. Less than a dozen movers work for Brothers Moving & Storage and they complete about two to five moves a day for both household and business moves. With summer ramping up, Woodruff said the company must walk a fine line of finding additional labor while still being critical of providing a standard of quality service. He said people moving should also be patient with movers who might need additional breaks as temperatures rise in order to stay hydrated and safe during work.
