Along one axis is the horizontal volumetry of the house, with its green roof that lifts the grass of the land and merges with the surrounding construction. Along the other axis, there is emptiness: a wooden deck and pool. Save this picture!© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra At the intersection of these axes, a terrace holds the social spaces of the house, including a kitchen and a living. With permanent cross ventilation, the atmosphere is inviting, even with the high temperatures of São Paulo state, in southeastern Brazil. This terrace is the transition between interior and exterior. It divides the house into two blocks of wood. The southern block contains the garage and TV room while the northern block holds rooms, kitchen and services. The ceilings create a spatiality: over the terrace it is a low concrete porch and over the living room it is inclined as the roof design and made out of wooden slats. Save this picture!SectionThe climate issue is key for the habitability of the house. All spaces are provided with ventilation through wooden folding doors, brises-soleil that can be fully opened. Moreover, the green roof acts as an insulator, besides creating the peculiarity of the volume.Save this picture!© FG+SG – Fernando GuerraProject gallerySee allShow lessNorman Foster Resigns from Moscow’s Pushkin Museum ExpansionArchitecture NewsUrban Fragment: Jose Oubrerie’s Miller HouseArticles Share CopyHouses•Bragança Paulista, Brazil MM House / Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan + Maria Cristina MottaSave this projectSaveMM House / Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan + Maria Cristina Mottalast_img read more

The main idea for this house was to create a space where one can find refuge from busy urban life, restore, contemplate, and connect with nature. The path to the house runs through wild and remote terrain, crossing a dense pine forest opening onto patches of delicate native flowers. The irregularly shaped lot is roughly segregated into three functional zones:Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe White Court: This is a welcoming space that allows you to switch over from the intense rhythm of city life to the relaxed atmosphere of a home.

They are all positioned on one visual axis, which serves as a window in both directions. The terrace is the heart of this house and unites all its parts. This open space is built into the main part of the house, which provides comfortable outdoor recreation at any time of the year. Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovOne of the main objectives of this project was to create a secluded space that looked discreet from the driveway’s side in the North and open from the South where the forest is. This resulted in the complex silhouette of the roof, along with a simple horizontally oriented composition of the house.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovLooking from the North reveals an ascetic single-story building mass. The facade has a minimal number of windows due to its orientation and functionality.  Looking from the South opens a two-story building thanks to the complex structure of the roof. The facade here, unlike the northern side, is very rich in detail. The large openings offer beautiful views of the forest and the sky. Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe entrance unit divides the house into two functional zones – public and private. The public area consists of kitchen-dining room space and a double-height living room with a 360 degrees wood-burning cooking fireplace that provides a relaxing atmosphere and view of the fire from all sides. There is a mezzanine recreation area above the space of the dining-living room. Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe private part of the house consists of a vanity area, a bathroom, and a room for yoga and meditation. It is an ascetic space of pure form with a meditative view from the window.

first_img Advertisement The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust has announced plans to increase its grant spending by over £3 million a year, for the next ten years.The move will take the Trust’s annual grant spending from around £7 million per year, to over £10 million per year, with the decision made as part of a ten yearly review of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) by its trustees. JRCT will now work to increase the number of grants given to organisations outside London to improve the geographical diversity of funding across the UK.The Trust will also make a number of larger, longer or core grants to charities where suitable.Nick Perks, the Trust Secretary at JRCT, said: “We’re pleased to be able to increase our grant funding, which reaffirms our commitment to engage in philanthropy which supports people who address the root causes of conflict and injustice. We have decided to make more grants across the UK in recognition of the importance of devolved nations and regions and that systemic change requires many voices and experiences. We want to be an open and responsive funder and we know that more core or unrestricted grants are what many charities want and could greatly benefit from.”A Quaker Trust, JRCT supports those working to address the root causes of conflict and injustice, in five areas: peace and security, rights and justice, power and accountability, sustainable future and Northern Ireland.The decision to increase grant spending was made at the Trust’s ten year review – its ‘decennial review’ – at which trustees are required to reflect on its work and ensure opportunities for the future are explored.Further details for applicants and existing grantees will be released later this year with changes expected to have been fully implemented by the end of next year.

first_imgOn the eve of his 96th birthday May 19, the great Black revolutionary, Malcolm X, will always be remembered for the quote: “By any means necessary.” He used this phrase to justify Black people having the right to defend themselves from all forms of white-supremacist violence, including by use of arms.  Just a week before his assassination in 1965, Malcolm X stated, “We are today seeing a global rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter.”  Both of these powerful statements are applicable to the genocidal terror currently happening in Gaza. Workers World Party defends the the right of the Palestinian people, as an oppressed and exploited people, to rebel against the racist Zionist regime of Israel “by any means necessary.” Our view has not wavered one iota since the Party held its first pro-Palestine demonstration in 1967.    This self-determination includes the Palestinian masses having their choice of political representation — which in Gaza has been Hamas since 2006. For decades,  Palestinians have faced two oppressors — the fascistic Israeli occupiers who violently displaced them from their homeland May 15, 1948, with horrific massacre — and the top backer of Israel, U.S. imperialism.  Yes, it is the duty for anyone who considers themself to be a revolutionary and socialist inside any superrich capitalist countries to demand that all aid be severed from propping up Israeli apartheid in Palestine. That is an important step towards building anti-imperialist solidarity.  This garrison state could not exist for one day if it weren’t for the $10 million the U.S. administration provides daily, amounting to almost $4 billion annually. This support reflects why Israel has been an illegitimate state since its inception. It uses a false cover of being a “Jewish state,” but in reality it is a Zionist state built on the blood, sweat and tears of the Palestinian people.  Zionism is a white-supremacist ideology used to dehumanize Palestinians and all Arab peoples. This racist, white, settler state was codified with the Balfour Declaration by British colonialist settlers on Nov. 2, 1917. Malcolm X equated Zionism with colonialism in September 1964.  Palestinian solidarity protest in Philadelphia, May 15Land theft, Columbus to ZionismWhat has happened to the displaced Palestinian people — be they in the Occupied Territorities of Gaza and the West Bank or throughout the diaspora — can be compared to what happened to the thousands of original nations in this hemisphere during the wholesale theft of Indigenous lands starting with Christopher Columbus. The difference is that Britain’s genocidal theft of North America led to the establishment of the world’s most powerful imperialist country, which today profits from the oil-rich region in East Asia or the “Middle East.”To be anti-Zionist is NOT the same as being antisemitic. The U.S. government’s support of Israel is not based on genuine support for Jewish people. In fact, antisemitic attacks are everyday occurrences in the U.S. and included the closing of its borders to a certain number of Jewish people attempting to escape the Holocaust during, and before, World War II. This imperialist maneuver was an effort to divert Jewish people to settle Palestine — to turn them into occupiers before 1948.  The Palestinian people have had no other choice but to fight back against their oppressors, using everything at their disposal — from slingshots to rockets against the Israeli Defense Forces, which are trained and armed with the most sophisticated weaponry supplied by the U.S. Defense Department.  The heroic resistance shown by the Palestinians has helped to further isolate the already ostracized Israeli regime — especially since the first Intifada or uprising that began in 1987, followed by the second Intifada in 2000. This is why it is critical for movements to demand an immediate end to the bombing of Gaza and ending all U.S. aid to Israel — and to defend the right to self-determination of the Palestinian people to win their liberation “by any means necessary” — which will weaken imperialism everywhere. Workers World Party salutes the heroism of the Palestinian people.

first_img Previous articleLimerick councillor calls for an end to ‘financial terror’Next articleCutting Edge award for Limerick theatre company Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie The past presidents of Limerick Chamberby Bernie [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick Chamber, one of the oldest and most important institutions in the city will be celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2015. As part of the celebrations, an important new book on the Chamber’s history has been commissioned and is being researched and written by two well-known professional historians, Dr Matthew Potter and Sharon Slater.Although the Chamber’s bicentenary is dated from the granting of its charter by King George III on 2 June 1815, it had actually been in existence for eight years before that.On 7 May 1807 a number of Limerick merchants met and resolved that “it appears to this meeting that it would be serviceable to the trade of this city to establish a Committee of Merchants or a Chamber of Commerce.’Thus began an institution which has made an enormous impact on Limerick over the past 200 years. Starting with 60 members in 1807, it now boasts more than 450 members drawn from every sector of the region’s business community.The purpose of the Chamber was to promote and protect the interests of the business community of Limerick and from the beginning it set about these tasks with gusto.In the early nineteenth century, Limerick city had a booming economy, which was reflected in the building of the magnificent Georgian quarter of Newtown Pery, but its dynamic business community was being held back by an antiquated administrative structure and the port was seriously neglected.The Chamber took over the running of the port itself for a few years and carried out significant improvements to facilitate its use by more ships. It also regulated the highly important butter trade, improved the collection of tolls and worked hard to promote the linen industry in the city.Later, the Chamber persuaded the British government to reduce the huge debt incurred by the Harbour Commissioners in developing the port. As a result, the Limerick Chamber became one of the busiest and most dynamic chambers in the world at the time.Over the years, the Chamber had many dynamic presidents, whose names are a reminder of Limerick’s renowned commercial traditions: Sir James Spaight, James Bannatyne, Sir Alexander Shaw, Sir Thomas Cleeve. Some of these names are also a reminder that the Chamber was once a bastion of Unionism.In 1885, when the nationalist-dominated Corporation refused to meet the Prince and Princess of Wales (later King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra)  on their visit to Limerick, the Chamber greeted them instead at a reception held in the railway station.Between 1808 and 1824 the organisation spent considerable sums to encourage economic development in areas like agricultural improvements, protecting the Shannon salmon fishery, repairing the city market and regulating slaughterhouses.It threw its weight behind Muintir Na Tir Community schemes such as the Penny in the Pound Scheme of 1941-45 which provided cheap and free fuel to the city’s poor. The scheme provided 1 pence of every pound earned by employers and employees to go towards free fuel for the poor. Another scheme at the time was the Potato Scheme. Of the 126 acres planted at Shanagolden and Murroe, the Chamber had secured 100 acres on behalf of its members for the growing and selling of cheap potatoes.The present home of Limerick Chamber (96 O’Connell Street), had an interesting history and to this day retains much of its original Georgian layout and architectural detailing.  Memories from Bridie Breen, who was born in the building 93 years ago, will add colour to this chapter.These are only a few episodes from the history of Limerick Chamber, which promises to be a comprehensive, lively and lavishly illustrated book, packed with dramatic events and interesting personalities, all set within the larger context of Limerick’s economic and social history. From a Limerick perspective, It will be one of the most interesting books to appear on the bookshelves this year.

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Ina highly controversial presentation, Mary McFadzean, organisational healthmanager at HBOS, described how the HR department is the main operator in thesickness absence process at the banking firm. Shesaid that because much absence is due to non-medical problems, HR and linemanagers have attended workshops to assist them in recognising the underlyingcauses of absence. Where the cause is a social or work-related problem, theycan make reasonable adjustments to support the individual. This results in lessreliance in medical advice and more in-house management of the issues. Moreresearch is needed on staff motivation and what keeps people at work, she said,but generous sick-pay schemes don’t help. Particularly with short-term absence,social factors are the primary cause. Theorganisation can help to break the cycle of short-term absence by providingsupport for workplace issues that may be exacerbating health problems. Byusing this method she argued, OH can help train HR to have the confidence totackle the causes of non-medically related absence in areas that can beaddressed by a pro-active HR function.

first_imgThe number of estate agencies being bought and sold during the Coronavirus crisis has not faltered despite the almost complete shut-down of the housing market, it has been claimed.Marc Daniels, boss of property industry business sales specialist Addisons says his work is carrying on in earnest, and that he has just begun marketing three estate agency businesses and is handling three offers on two other companies.“You might think agents would have to discount their business’s selling price by 20-25% to attract a buyer in the current climate, but it’s not the case whether it’s a £100,000 or a £3 million business,” he says.“One of the ones I’m selling has been offered at full open market price in NW England and one not far below market price,” he says.Daniels, who has been helping clients buy and sell estate agency businesses since 1985, says he has ten sales and/or lettings agencies going through his books at the moment, and has sold three including a chain in the East End of London, a business in Farnborough and a estate agency in Bridlington since the most recent Budget.He has also endured at least three severe economic meltdowns during his career working with estate agencies, and says like other downturns it’s only the big corporates who have put their acquisition programmes ‘on hold’ to keep their shareholders happy.Daniels says it is both sales and lettings agencies that are being snapped up, but admits it’s easier to find buyers for firms with existing property management portfolios.“Unlike other brokers I take on agencies of all sizes – a deal is a deal as far as I’m concerned,” he says.Marc Bailey coronavirus Addisons April 15, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
