Renovating a semi-detached, single fronted Edwardian terrace house always poses a unique set of challenges.  The sites are often long and narrow with a shared party wall on one side and an existing house which can be over 100 years old.  The main challenge is always how to create modern, flexible, light-filled spaces with limited site access and a tight budget.Save this picture!PlansWith the Brunswick house, we designed the extension to be built to boundary on both sides with high ceilings, light internal materials and strategically placed skylights to bring the light in from above. We also designed the cabinetry to be customised to the client’s needs so that everything had a place and how each space was to be used was carefully considered. The kitchen and dining areas also completely open up to the backyard, extending the feeling of space to the north.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Tatjana PlittThe external view from the backyard was designed to showcase the clean, rectilinear lines of the first floor extension with fine perimeter detailing, and the vertical batten cladding providing visual depth and transparency to the façade.  The steel box around the window provides shelter, shading and privacy to the upstairs windows.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittThe materials were carefully chosen to provide texture and variety to give each element and room its’ own individuality, in particular with the selection of flooring, wall tiles and joinery finishes.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittProject gallerySee allShow lessShanghaiTech University / Moore Ruble YudellSelected ProjectsMadison Square Garden Unveils Plans for Spherical Event Venues in London and Las VegasArchitecture News Share “COPY” Brunswick House / Chan ArchitectureSave this projectSaveBrunswick House / Chan Architecture CopyAbout this officeChan ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrunswickAustraliaPublished on February 14, 2018Cite: “Brunswick House / Chan Architecture” 14 Feb 2018.

The site lies a few minutes away from a traditional shopping street, and is a short distance from where two main roads in Tokyo intersect.  The owner requested a new multi-family dwelling building that could be uniquely adapted to the dense urban area, while at the same time would be bright and open to natural daylight.  On the south side of the lot is a road with a width of 8 meters and an unpaved parking lot.  The original parking lot function of the site is to be continued underneath the new building, and maintains a height capable of accommodating the stopping the microbus.  Located halfway between residential and shopping areas, the site vicinity has good access to the city center of Tokyo, and is a vibrant and diverse neighborhood with people of different age groups, occupations and positions.Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraSave this picture!Section Y’Y’Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraIn an effort to respond to these conditions, several different types and sizes of dwelling units are aggregated into one building, and establishes a unified multi-family architecture informed directly by its contextual diversity.  Each unit and associated parking space is combined into ‘seven blocks’ with different shapes and sizes, and is assembled into one overall volume.  By adjusting the volume and shaping of each building block, we developed a configuration that fits onto the site, addresses profitability, and conforms to the building codes and specifications.  Each dwelling unit contains rooms with individuality depending on the direction of the inhabitants, and is designed as minimalist spaces while coping with the overall spatial complexities.  In addition the spaces situated on the south side of each dwelling unit function as privacy buffers with access to the outside, and offer a three-dimensional spatial connection edge-side to both upper and lower floors.Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraFrom the road, various elements overlap to form the street elevation.  At the intermediate living spaces, a curtain is affixed to the façade to ensure privacy.  The band-like massing is arranged and layered in such a way to change with the transformation from the public to the private areas.  By alternating the sliced ​​and band-shaped structural and non-structural segments, we devised a way that would also accommodate equipment wiring and piping.  The rigid concrete frame structure, combined with partial load bearing walls, band-shaped flat pillars and beams produces a transparent feeling with a porous and light impression, and creates a bright and open apartment building open to the city.Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessRestaurant of Shade / NISHIZAWAARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsTen Courtyard House / Atelier ZAISelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:5-11-27 Nakanobu Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.

Zahra Kazemi’s killers still unpunished, 15 years after her death in custody

first_imgReferring to Iran’s failure to punish anyone for his mother’s death, Stephan Hashemi said in 2014: “The government of Iran is fully responsible for the death under torture of my mother Zahra Kazemi. It is also a very clear and proven case of cover-up by the Iranian government.” Two other women journalists, Narges Mohammadi and Hengameh Shahidi, and one other woman citizen-journalist, Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, are currently detained in the Islamic Republic of Iran, which makes it one of the world’s three biggest jailers of women journalists and women citizen-journalists, along with Turkey and Syria. Iran is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. News They also include the deaths in detention of Firat news agency reporter Ayfer Serçe (2006), blogger Omidreza Mirsayafi (2009), former Abrar Economy reporter Alireza Eftekhari (2009), journalist and women’s rights activist Haleh Sahabi (2011), Iran-e-Farda journalist Hoda Saber (2011) and blogger Sattar Beheshti (2012). Receive email alerts The many other examples of impunityfor murders of journalists in Iran include those of Ebrahim Zalzadeh, Majid Charif, Mohamad Mokhtari, Mohamad Jafar Pouyandeh and Pirouz Davani, who were murdered by intelligence ministry agents from September to December 1998. Zahra Kazemi was 55 years old when she died on 11 July 2003 from the injuries received at the hands of her torturers following her arrest 18 days earlier while photographing the families of detainees waiting outside Evin prison. July 10, 2018 Zahra Kazemi’s killers still unpunished, 15 years after her death in custody In carefully staged judicial proceedings, one of the intelligence officers who interrogated Kazemi was charged with her death on 24 July 2004 only to be acquitted by a Tehran appeal court on 16 May 2005. The Kazemi family lawyers said they were unable to address these hearings, which the defendant did not attend, and that their requests for senior judicial officials to be summoned to testify were ignored, depriving the hearings of key witnesses.

Rev. Al Sharpton to join family in demanding justice for Florida man killed in ‘stand your ground’ shooting

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(CLEARWATER, Fla.) — Loved ones of an African-American man shot dead in a Florida parking dispute by a white man invoking the state’s controversial “stand your ground” self-defense law are about to get a boost in their calls for justice from a national civil rights leader.The Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday that he will travel to Florida next week to protest the death of Markeis McGlockton, 28.Sharpton, the civil rights leader based in New York City, announced in a tweet Sunday that he will hold a rally for McGlockton next Sunday in Clearwater, Florida, where McGlockton was gunned down earlier this month in front of a convenience store.Relatives of McGlockton are expected to join Sharpton at that rally at St. John Primitive Baptist Church.Sharpton’s announcement comes a day after a funeral for McGlockton drew several hundred mourners.McGlockton was killed on July 19, when he came out of a Circle A convenience store to find his girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, being confronted by Michael Drejka, 47, apparently for parking in a handicap spot.Surveillance video showed McGlockton shoving Drejka to the ground. Drejka pulled a handgun and shot McGlockton as he appeared to be taking steps back. McGlockton was shot in front of Jacobs and their three children, ages 4 months to 5 years old.Drejka told Pinellas County sheriff’s detectives that he was invoking the “stand your ground” law because he feared for his life after McGlockton pushed him to the ground.Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri declined to file charges in the case, saying Drejka “had to shoot to defend himself.”Gualtieri’s decision prompted protests in Clearwater and demands from McGlockton’s attorney to continue the investigation and for Pinellas County State Attorney Bernie McCabe to file charges against Drejka.Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida, has sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking that the Department of Justice launch a federal investigation into McGlockton’s death.Nelson’s letter is also signed by Sen. Cory Booker, D-New Jersey; Sen. Kamala Harris, D-California; Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Florida; and Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Florida.Sessions has yet to say if the Department of Justice will investigate the shooting.Benjamin Crump, a civil rights attorney who represents Jacobs, the mother of McGlockton’s three young children, and Michele Reyner, a lawyer who represents McGlockton’s parents, both contend that Drejka had no standing to cite “stand your ground” as a defense.“We are here to demand justice for the cold-blooded murder of Markeis McGlockton by the self-appointed wannabe cop Michael Drejka,” said Crump said at a news conference on Thursday.“You can’t start a confrontation and kill somebody and say, ‘Oh, I was just standing my ground,’” Crump said.Reyner says that the video of the shooting indicates that Drejka was not in any imminent danger and had four seconds to decide whether or not to use deadly force on McGlockton.Crump and Reyner are also asking the state legislature to amend the “stand your ground” law to prevent aggressors and instigators of such incidents from citing the “stand your ground” law as a defense.As of Friday, the sheriff’s department had not turned over reports in the case to McCabe, according to McGlockton’s attorney. McCabe will decide if charges against Drejka are warranted.Drejka has not commented publicly on the case. ABC News has made numerous attempts to seek comment from Drejka, but he has not responded.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

“A garbage year”: The state of Manhattan’s luxury resi market in 2020

first_imgShare via Shortlink Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink There was a 31 percent decline in contracts signed for properties above $4 million compared to last year. (iStock)Donna Olshan isn’t mincing words when it comes to the state of Manhattan’s luxury residential market in 2020.“I just consider 2020 a year you can throw out,”Olshan said. “It’s a garbage year.”It’s a sentiment that rings true on multiple levels, and in the context of Manhattan properties priced above $4 million — which Olshan has tracked since 2005 in a weekly report — the numbers are irrefutable.According to her latest report, which looks at the year as a whole, there was a 31 percent decline in signed contracts in 2020 compared to last year.And the past few years haven’t been that great: There was a steady decline in contract volume between 2013, when 1,372 contracts were signed for townhouses, condos and co-ops, to 2020, when just 645 similar deals were inked.Given the pandemic, it’s hard to treat 2020 as a regular year. After the state locked down in the spring, luxury deals slowed to an average of four per week. Though the market later rallied, it wasn’t enough to get close to the 935 contracts signed in 2019. From a data perspective, “this will go down as one of these years with a big asterisk after it,” Olshan said.The co-op market was particularly weak, with just 133 contracts signed in 2020 compared to 222 last year. Condos did better with a total of 418, though that was still a big drop from 595 last year. In 2015, when the condo market was at its peak, 904 contracts were signed.Among the condos that went into contract, the average asking price was $2,733 per square foot, down from $2,802 last year and $2,825 in 2015.Read moreHow HFZ became the face of Manhattan’s condo woesManhattan luxury market has best week since early MarchFor struggling condos, the pandemic proves the ultimate test When the pandemic first hit, many brokers (well, townhouse brokers) predicted single-family homes would come out a winner. After all, why would you want to stand in a crowded elevator to get to your apartment when you could walk right into a spacious home?But in the luxury market, at least, those predictions may have been overblown. In total, 92 townhouses priced above $4 million went into contract in 2020, down from 114 last year. “What bears out is that cheaper townhouses sold,” Olshan said.The average discount between the first and last asking price across all the properties types was 12 percent, up from 10 percent last year. But Olshan said that the full spectrum of discounts given in 2020 won’t be clear until all the properties that went into contract have closed.Among all the downward-facing figures, there was one data point that increased this year: the size of homes that went into contract.As New Yorkers grew accustomed to working from home, they sought out bigger properties. The average condo size of those that went into contract this year was 2,953 square feet, up from 2,874 square feet the year before.Contact Sylvia Varnham O’Regancenter_img Email Address* Full Name* Tagsdonna olshanNYC Luxury MarketResidential Real Estatelast_img read more

Heat distribution in the Southeast Pacific is only weakly sensitive to high-latitude heat flux and wind stress.

first_imgThe Southern Ocean features regionally‐varying ventilation pathways that transport heat and carbon from the surface ocean to the interior thermocline on timescales of decades to centuries, but the factors that control the distribution of heat along these pathways are not well understood. In this study, we use a global ocean state estimate (ECCOv4) to (1) define the recently ventilated interior Pacific (RVP) using numerical passive tracer experiments over a 10‐year period and (2) use an adjoint approach to calculate the sensitivities of the RVP heat content (RVPh) to changes in net heat flux and wind stress. We find that RVPh is most sensitive to local heat flux and wind stress anomalies north of the sea surface height contours that delineate the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, with especially high sensitivities over the South Pacific Gyre. Surprisingly, RVPh is not especially sensitive to changes at higher latitudes. We perform a set of step response experiments over the South Pacific Gyre, the subduction region, and the high‐latitude SO. In consistency with the adjoint sensitivity fields, RVPh is most sensitive to wind stress curl over the subtropical gyre, which alter isopycnal heave, and it is only weakly sensitive to changes at higher latitudes. Our results suggest that despite the localized nature of mode water subduction hotspots, changes in basin‐scale pressure gradients are an important controlling factor on RVPh. Because basin‐scale wind stress is expected to change in the coming decades to centuries, our results may have implications for climate, via the atmosphere/ocean partitioning of heat.last_img read more
