The property which includes a house built in the 1970s is situated on a slope with a beautiful view of the village. The original house was not worth preserving and was therefore demolished except for the basement. After upgrading the ceiling of the basement, new living space was built on top of it using prefabricated timber elements. The floor plan lies congruently above the basement, which results in structurally simple transitions between old and new. Save this picture!© Andreas Graber PhotographySave this picture!© Andreas Graber PhotographyThe entire living area is slightly elevated above the garden level, which creates a pleasant and light feeling of space. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and the existing offset on the façade facing the valley, together with the three-part sections entrance/living/dining, generate a flowing room. Save this picture!© Andreas Graber PhotographySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Andreas Graber PhotographyThe dining room with its extra height is a central area for family life. The view of the village is underlined through long fixed glazing in the living room. The window sill underneath it can be used as a bench and storage space.  In the dining room, the showcase-like lift-and-slide window merges the interior with the exterior. The tight budget was considered by dispensing of anything unnecessary, which resulted in untreated and natural surfaces.  Save this picture!© Andreas Graber PhotographyThe new building consists of only three materials – fir wood, concrete, and chrome steel.

Our clients sought to create an edgy yet comfortable urban home for themselves and their two grown up children.Save this picture!© Michael KaiSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Michael KaiOur challenge was to transform a compact terrace house into a functioning family home. As the heritage fabric of the building had been heavily modified over the years, we had the unique opportunity to entirely redefine the spaces within this building. A light filled communal living room forms the heart of the home, with a sculpted plywood ceiling above a two-storey void that brings an abundance of natural light and into the space.Save this picture!© Michael KaiExisting brickwork was retained and re-used for the new portions of the house, with reverse brick veneer providing a beautiful visual feature internally as well as a thermally efficient wall construction to the new living space. Recycled timber beams were incorporated into the structure of the building in response to the client’s love of timber and connection to the timber industry.Save this picture!© Michael KaiThe homes private spaces are ‘tucked’ into other parts of the house, making use of all available space and creating a sense of separation and privacy. At the upper floor, two separate bedroom zones are connected via a staircase, and an open walkway linking across to a rooftop balcony. The lower level utilises skylights to draw light deep into the house, creating a serene ambience to the master bathroom and providing a dramatic view of the sky from the bath.Save this picture!© Michael KaiThis project demonstrates that a small footprint is no barrier to creating a functional family home that is both unexpected and deceptively spacious.Save this picture!© Michael KaiProject gallerySee allShow lessHeidentempel Pavilion / Christoph Hesse ArchitectsSelected ProjectsAjuala Restaurant / Portafoglio Grupo Arquitectónico + Grupo HCRSelected Projects Share Australia 2020 Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMitsuori ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationExtensionMelbourneOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on May 07, 2021Cite: “Fitzroy House / Mitsuori Architects” 07 May 2021.

Only nine percent of humankind lives in a country where press freedom is good

first_img On World Press Freedom Day, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) points out that less than ten percent of the world’s population is now living in countries where journalists enjoy a favourable environment and are able to practice their profession freely and independently.

May 2, 2019 – Updated on May 3, 2019 Only nine percent of humankind lives in a country where press freedom is good “None of humankind’s big problems – whether global warming, corruption or gender inequality – can be solved without information that is freely and independently reported and reliable, in other words, without quality journalism,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “This situation is very worrying for journalists and above all for all those human beings who are being deprived of their right to information.” Help by sharing this information Some countries with sizeable populations nonetheless made significant democratic progress in 2018 that was reflected in major rises in the Index. They include Ethiopia, with its 100 million inhabitants, which soared 40 places in the Index to 110th position, and Malaysia, with its 31.6 million inhabitants, which rose 22 places to 123rd position. These figures are based on World Bank population statistics and the percentages in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. They are reflected in the World Press Freedom Map, which has been getting darker and darker for years. The global press freedom indicator has deteriorated by 11% in the past five years. The deterioration is also due in part to the demographic weight of certain of the countries occupying some of the lowest positions in RSF’s Index. India, which is ranked 140th and is coloured red, and China, which is ranked 177th and is coloured black, have a combined population of 2.7 billion, whereas Norway, the country ranked first in the Index, has only 5.2 million inhabitants. News Only 9% of humankind lives in a country where RSF regards the level of press freedom as either good or satisfactory – a country coloured either white or yellow on the World Press Freedom Map that is derived from the 2019 World Press Freedom Index unveiled by RSF on 18 April.

1st Navy sailors test positive for new coronavirus aboard a ship at sea

first_imgEMPPhotography/iStock(NEW YORK) — U.S. Navy sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt — currently in the Philippine Sea — have tested positive for novel coronavirus.This is the first time that U.S. sailors have tested positive aboard a Navy ship while at sea.The three sailors have been flown to an undisclosed U.S. medical facility in the Pacific region, said Thomas Modley, the acting Secretary of the Navy at a Pentagon briefing. Sailors among the rest of the ship’s crew of 5,000, who came into contact with the three sailors, have been protectively quarantined.“We’ve identified all those folks that they’ve had contact with and we’re quarantining them as well,” Modley said. “This is an example of our ability to keep our ships deployed at sea.”Overall, the Navy has 86 personnel who have tested positive for COVID-19, including 57 sailors. The rest are civilians, dependents or contractors.It was unclear if the sailors became infected with the coronavirus following the ship’s most recent port of call in early March to Da Nang, Vietnam.“It would be difficult to tie down these active cases to that particular port visit,” said Adm. Mike Gilday, the chief of naval operations. “We’ve had aircraft flying to and from the ship and so we just don’t want to say that it was that particular port visit.”Gilday said that prior to the port call, Navy officials carefully considered whether to proceed with the visit. He noted that at the time of the scheduled port of call there were only 16 cases of COVID-19 — all of them in northern Vietnam, far from the port located in central Vietnam.Careful screening of returning sailors was carried out before they boarded the carrier, which then followed the Navy’s new guidance to maintain 14 days at sea following a port of call.The three sailors tested positive 15 days after the port of call.This past weekend the Navy sent medical teams to three large ships in the Pacific — including the carrier Roosevelt — that could carry out “batch” testing of units aboard the ships instead of individual tests. But it appears that the three sailors exhibited symptoms, including fever and body aches, and received individual tests that were flown to shore for final analysis.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Mellor calls for an end to ‘old boy network’ recruiting

first_img Previous Article Next Article Julie Mellor, the head of Britain’s equal opportunities watchdog, has calledon the legal profession to end the old boys’ network approach to appointing newmembers of the judiciary. Mellor, chairwoman of the equal opportunities commission, said there neededto be a much more modern and transparent way of appointing judges, QCs andmembers of the Supreme Court. She claimed that an investigation into judicial appointments had uncoveredshocking evidence that showed the system was excluding women and ethnicminorities. “The archaic and arbitrary nature of some of these appointments meanssome of the best people are not being appointed. The use of automaticconsultees creates the risk that the people consulted will simply appoint intheir own image. This practice must stop,” she said. Last year’s figures found that women represent just 31 per cent of judges,one of the country’s 12 law lords and 12 of the 133 QC appointments. Responding to the government’s consultation on constitutional reform, Mellorsaid all appointments should be made on merit as the result of an openadvertisement and competition. “It’s time the legal profession caught upwith the modern approach used by employers that have brought in rigorousselection procedures. “They have found that they are able to recruit a more diverse range ofpeople and the quality of decision making has improved as a result,” sheadded.

Adobe Introduces ‘Photoshop’ Software That Allows Users To Manipulate Audio

first_imgPhotoshop creator, Adobe, has just unveiled a brand new technology that would allow you to now manipulate audio recordings. At the recent Adobe MAX 2016 Conference, during the Sneak Peeks session, co-hosted by Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, a packed house of tech-industry people were introduced to the new technology, which is not market ready at this time.While audio manipulation has been available for over a decade now, this new technology would still allow a user to switch words around in a phrase, but also enable them to type and edit new words into a phrase using audio wave forms, via “Project VoCo.”It is a very interesting new technology, while at the same time being extremely frightening. One thing to remember after this Project VoCo hits the markets….don’t piss off your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, and especially exes. Somehow, this technology will be used against you.Check out a demonstration below:[via Twisted Sifter]last_img read more
