Lujan House / Robert Gurney Architect

first_imgPhotographs:  Anice Hoachlander | HD PhotoText description provided by the architects. In an effort to integrate living spaces with the outdoors while maintaining privacy from Burbage Lane and neighboring houses, the scheme is organized around a centrally located garden. With sixteen foot high ceilings, the eastern volume contains the public living spaces. Continuous clerestory windows assist in providing an abundance of natural light into the space, allowing views to the treetops and sky while minimizing the close proximity of the adjacent houses. A twenty foot wide glass wall slides into a pocket, enhancing the relationship to the outdoors, and provides a sense of living in a garden. The two story western volume is comprised of bedrooms and a small second floor living space. A one story glass link connects the volumes and visually opens to the central garden.

An eclectic mix of houses, gravel roads ending at the bay and wooded lots provide a nostalgic, informal setting for this new house. The project site is near the end of Burbage Lane, the second lot from the bay with expectations that the adjacent waterfront lot will eventually be developed.Save this picture!© Anice Hoachlander | HD PhotoThe house was conceived as two simple, flat-roofed volumes, varying in height, intersecting and overlapping a one story circulation space which connects the volumes. The east volume is constructed with cement board, the west volume with corrugated siding and the one story connecting space with the ground face concrete block. The exterior material palette is quiet and subdued. Materials are selected for their expected long term durability, ease of installation and initial cost. The impact of the one story horizontal volume facing the street is intended to reflect the scale of neighboring structures while the narrow two story volumes are oriented perpendicular to the street reducing their apparent scale. Save this picture!© Anice Hoachlander | HD PhotoThis house is designed in strong counterpoint to many of the houses built in the last era of abundant resources, expensive materials, and limitless floor area. The house is not large; it comprises three bedrooms and 2400 square feet. The house is constructed with modest materials that include concrete floors throughout the first floor, oak flooring on the second floor and plastic laminate and oak millwork. Save this picture!© Anice Hoachlander | HD PhotoThe house was designed to achieve a balance between recognition of the picturesque Chesapeake Bay landscape and a more intimate, secluded garden environment. Expansive openings to the private garden combined with smaller, selectively oriented openings toward the greater landscape allow for a sense of privacy while maintaining a sensibility of direct connection to the rhythms of nature.Save this picture!floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture City Guide: ChicagoArticlesAD Round Up: Stadiums Part IVArticles Share Projects Houses Lujan House / Robert Gurney ArchitectSave this projectSaveLujan House / Robert Gurney Architect Lujan House / Robert Gurney Architect CopyAbout this officeRobert Gurney ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasOcean ViewHouses3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on January 26, 2011Cite: “Lujan House / Robert Gurney Architect” 26 Jan 2011.

COVID-19: Pets at Home and SAFP to donate £700,000 to local pet rescue charities

first_img  879 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Pets at Home and its charity Support Adoption For Pets are donating £700,000 to help animals in need by supporting rescue centres and animal charities across the UK which are facing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Support Adoption For Pets, “the UK’s largest grant giving charity to animal welfare”, will make grants totalling £400,000 to local pet rescue centres which it has identified as being in need across the UK. This represents over 10% of the total grants it made last year to support rescues with costs such as vet bills, vehicles, equipment and building improvements. Pets at Home will be donating a further £300,000, as part of its VIP Lifelines scheme, to over 750 animal charities across the UK. This scheme involves animal charity supporters earning ‘Lifelines’ when purchasing items in Pets at Home stores, which is then converted into vouchers for the charity’s branches and centres to spend in their local store.Each charity within the scheme will receive an additional £400 on top of what their supporting VIP members have already raised for them, to be spent in-store on essential food products to help feed the animals in their care during this difficult time. Support Adoption For Pets charity manager, Amy Angus, said: “In the past few days alone we’ve been inundated with reports of rescues closing, stopping re-homing and taking pets in, volunteers self-isolating and struggling to fundraise at this critical time, and it’s vital we offer support now more than ever.” In 2006 Pets at Home established the charity Support Adoption For Pets. Since then it has helped more than 1,000 rehoming centres and animal welfare organisations across the UK. In addition to its fundraising, it also runs dedicated adoption centres in Pets at Home stores.

LIBYA – RSF asks Libya’s Government of National Accord to protect journalists

first_img Six imprisoned journalists to finally appear in court in Istanbul RSF_en News February 23, 2021 Find out more LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesMedia independence Armed conflictsImpunityPredatorsViolenceFreedom of expression News Zentani was killed by a single shot while covering clashes in the western part of the city between IS fighters and eastern Libya’s army. Our sources said he was deliberately targeted by the IS sniper. Aged 37, he used to be Zentan TV’s Benghazi bureau chief. Of late he had been freelancing for various media including Zentan TV and Sky News. Other recent media victims include Ali Al Asbli, a blogger who disappeared (and was probably kidnapped) in March 100 km from Benghazi, and Badr Al Rabhi, the correspondent of the Libya HD television channel who was kidnapped in January in Benghazi. According to our sources, Rabhi was kidnapped by a military intelligence unit attached to Gen. Khalifa Haftar’s self-proclaimed Libyan National Army. He was questioned for three days, during which he was subjected to verbal and physical violence. The disappearance of Tunisian journalists Sofiane Chourabi and Nadhir Khtari in the Ajdabiya region in September 2014 remains unsolved. “We deeply deplore all these acts of violence against journalists, including Khaled Al Zantani’s murder, which brings to eight the number of journalists killed in Libya since the start of 2014,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk. “Those responsible for these crimes continue to act with complete impunity. We reiterate our appeal to the Government of National Accord, recently installed in Tripoli, to publicly undertake to protect journalists and to prioritize the fight against impunity.” Other cases of abduction and violence have been reported to RSF in both eastern and western Libya but the families, which often fear reprisals by the many militias or by Islamic State, have asked RSF not to name the victims. The internationally recognized Government of National Accord headed by Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj that was installed in Tripoli in March has said its priority is combatting the Islamist extremists scattered along a 200 km stretch of coast starting in Abu Grayin, in the Syrte region. However, the GNA has not yet managed to unite all of the military forces on the ground, especially in the east of the country where fighters loyal to Gen. Haftar, who is backed by several eastern tribes, refuse to be sidelined by Sarraj. In this complex power struggle, professional and non-professional journalists are caught between the various forces in play and are unable to work freely. Libya is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

The end of the world has councillors buzzing

first_imgLinkedin Advertisement TAGSEnvironmentNewspolitics “NOW that the world is coming to an end, we should do our best with the time that’s left”.That was the apocalyptic comment from Independent councillor John Gilligan at County Hall this week.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And no, it wasn’t potholes, renaming bridges, or any of the usual fare that gets councillors all worked up that had the City North representative in such fatalistic form, but matters concerning the birds and bees.The Dooradoyle council chamber was abuzz this Monday following a presentation from Limerick City and County Council on its efforts to implement elements of the All Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020 on a pilot basis.Senior Executive Engineer, Anne Goggin, told council members that the Physical Development Directorate is currently working with the Parks Department to look at ways of making Limerick “more pollination friendly”.“Pollination is in decline worldwide with wild geese here facing extinction with the loss of habitat and food. A recent report from Germany shows that pollination is in decline by 70 per cent, so it is a fairly serious issue,” Ms Goggin explained.The Council is now looking at doing its bit for the environment by looking at three areas in the city as special areas of pollination. These include habitats at Corbally Meadow, College Park, Corbally, and Childer’s Road.Cllr John Gilligan believed this project could have a “huge benefit”.“This is something that we are able to do, it is just a matter of us being willing to do it,” he insisted.Independent councillor Frankie Daly was equally enthused.“The site in Corbally just looks like a wild field. We need to think outside box. We have an ageing population that would benefit from a park area, which would be a great facility. We should be putting a plan in place,” Cllr Daly commented.Fine Gael councillor Marian Hurley felt that the Wild Flower Garden on Thomas Street looked “unkempt” and needed to be “tweaked to give it that wow factor”.Her party colleague Elenora Hogan took the view that more should be done in primary schools to engage them in the subject of pollination.Independent councillor John Loftus pointed out that primary schools in his native Scotland are encouraged to plant trees and keep beehives.“It has been very successful and would help in the fight to save our planet,” he said.

Father, daughter to face murder charges in killing initially blamed on panhandlers

first_imgBaltimore Police Dept.(BALTIMORE) — A father and daughter who allegedly fabricated a story of a panhandler stabbing his wife to death when she gave them money were extradited to Baltimore early Thursday to face murder charges. Keith and Valeria Smith were brought back to Maryland by the Baltimore Police Department’s Warrant Apprehension Task Force after being caught in Texas earlier this month while attempting to make a run for the Mexican border, authorities said. The father and daughter arrived at the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport shortly after midnight and were immediately driven to the Central Booking Intake Facility in Baltimore, police said. Baltimore police released video and photos of the pair being taken off the plane on the tarmac, put into handcuffs and driven away. It was not immediately clear when they will appear in court. They are both charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 1 stabbing death of Keith Smith’s wife, Jacquelyn Smith, 54. The supects initially claimed Jacquelyn Smith was stabbed by one of two panhandlers she spotted while driving through East Baltimore. In interviews with homicide detectives and at a news conference shortly after the killing, the pair claimed Jacquelyn Smith was stabbed when she asked her husband to pull over so she could give $10 to a female panhandler who appeared to be holding a baby. Keith Smith told ABC News shortly after the killing that both panhandlers approached their car and the male panhandler stabbed his wife and snatched her chain as he and the woman were thanking her for the money. He said the woman panhandler reached into the car, grabbed his wife’s purse and ran. But on March 3, Michael Harrison, acting commissioner of the Baltimore Police Department, said the story told by Keith and Valeria Smith “was not true.” Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh slammed the suspects for using issues of homelessness as a ruse in an alleged attempt to cover up the killing. “These individuals took advantage of a situation, a city that is already dealing with its own problems,” Pugh said earlier this month. “We’re looking forward to this cruel act being brought to justice.” The father and daughter were arrested that day in Harlingen, Texas, which is near the Mexican border. Police said they suspect the pair was attempting to cross the border and disappear. Since his arrest, Keith Smith’s criminal history has come under increased scrutiny. He pleaded guilty in 2001 to robbing the same bank in Timonium, Maryland, three times in nine months, according to reports obtained by ABC News from the Baltimore County Police Department.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

An assessment of the biological and acoustic characteristics of swarms of Antarctic krill

first_imgMeasurements on krill from distinct swarms and echo-sounder measurements of the same swarms have been analysed using multivariate methods. The analysis has addressed the problems of whether krill swarms in a small area may be of a limited number of types, and whether the biological characteristics of the krill could be related to the echo-sounder measurements of the swarm. The main sources of biological variation between krill in different swarms seemed to be related to size and maturity. Krill swarms did not appear to form groups based on biological similarity, and swarms caught in the same haul were as different as swarms caught in different hauls. However, swarms could be divided into groups on the basis of time of day and swarm depth. The biological features (size, maturity, sex ratio and moult stage) of krill in the swarms were not related to echo-sounder observations (horizontal and vertical extent, depth and density of swarms), although some degree of separation between swarms containing large and small krill may be possible if the shape of the swarms is considered. Information on biological characteristics of krill in swarms must still be collected using nets.last_img read more

Countrywide and LSL problems help accelerate high street branch closures

first_imgA run on estate agency branches shutting up shop has contributed to a significant increase in the number of high street units being closed down across the UK. latest research shows.The report by PwC and the Local Data Company reveals that estate agencies are the fourth largest category of high street closures at 143 during the first six months of the year.This is significantly higher than last year and may be attributable in part to the closure programme initiated by both LSL and Countrywide.In February this year it was revealed that 43 Your Move and Reeds Rains branches were to close, while Countrywide has been making an undisclosed number of branch closures.The PWC/LDC research puts estate agency branches below restaurants, pubs and clothing shops for closures, but ahead of charity shops, banks and fast food restaurants.During the first half of the year 2,868 shops closed on the UK’s top 500 high streets, or 16 a day, the reports shows.“In our experience, retailers are being that much more cautious and risk averse as far as both planning for new store openings and in making decisions across their existing property portfolios,” says Lucy Stainton, Head of Retail and Strategic Partnerships at The Local Data Company.“The reality is that UK retail space will continue to look very different over the coming years, and this is demonstrated by the sheer number of stores opening and closing on an ongoing basis.”   estate agency branches high street closures September 12, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
