The challenge lay in preserving the traditional mixed-use development of the neighborhood, which has historically brought together private mansion and artisans.

It wishes to acknowledge the Marais’ artisanal past while preserving activity in the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Frédéric DelangleThe project also sought to preserve the existing social fabric by increasing the number of social housing units and significantly improving the comfort of the habitations, all the while observing the City of Paris’ Climate Plan.

Bliem & AssociatesBuilding Surveyor:Code ComplianceSite Area:514m2Design Team:Andrew Maynard, Mark Austin, Kathryne HouchinCity:MelbourneCountry:AustraliaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Tess KellyText description provided by the architects. In a NutshellThe site is neighboured by huge houses. We were asked to provide the family with ‘just the right amount of space’. By creating large openings and generous connections to the garden we aimed to make this modest-sized house feel abundant and broad. The result is a home that is almost half the size of its neighbours without compromising liveability.Save this picture!© Tess Kelly The Largest houses in the worldAustralian homes are the largest in the world. This is a significant problem for Australia. A stable economy, aspirational culture and relatively flat topography have enabled Australians to occupy homes that are far bigger than they require. Melbourne’s flat landscape, loose topographical boundaries and rapidly growing population have meant that large homes have spread over the food belt and into arid areas. Large homes, and their associated sprawl, are highly problematic. Services and infrastructure, such as food, water, electricity, communications, health and education are stretched at great expense to the public, both financially and environmentally. Large, deep homes are less responsive to the climates of Australia’s cities. Therefore heating and cooling demands are radically increased. Large homes, and the subsequent sprawl, place significant demands on private car ownership and associated infrastructure, which is by far the least sustainable transport option. People who are unable to drive (the elderly, children, people with disabilities, etc) are often left isolated without reliable alternative transport options. Walking and riding become difficult, and often dangerous, in sprawl areas. In short, large homes are an environmental disaster for our cities, whilst also being a cultural/social disaster for our communities.Save this picture!Floor PlanLiving with community.“We (Australians) tend to seek those things in a private space rather than going and seeking them in a public space or mingle with others in the community and I think that is a worrying trend,” Professor Stuart WhiteSave this picture!© Tess KellyLike many of our wonderful clients, the owners of THAT House are keen to open up to the community rather than permanently hiding or fortifying themselves. As Australian homes and culture become increasingly inward looking and protective, AMA is reacting against this trend. THAT House can open up to the outdoors, both private and public. Importantly a house that can be very transparent needs to be able to adapt to multiple privacy needs. Hence we have installed upwards blinds to give the owners control over their level of privacy. How many times have you seen huge windows with their blinds permanently down? This happens because of the binary a downward blind creates. A downward blind provides no privacy until it is completely down. An upward blind enables you to cut-out almost all view into a home while still being able to look out to the garden, and the street beyond. This gives control over all levels of privacy and intimate control over the light let into each space.Save this picture!© Tess KellyAlone, together.Running through most of our projects is the concept of being alone, together. In its simplest terms, we aim to have secluded spaces within shared spaces. We’re not fans of open-plan living. We also avoid completely enclosing rooms or functions. We try to make the connection of each space adaptable and loose. The ground floor of THAT House is ostensibly open, however the arrangement of spaces allows the owners to be together, or secluded, or any level of engagement in between. For example, someone could be quietly reading in the study, whilst another family member watches cartoons in the sitting space, and two others are discussing football at the dining table. They are within a large, shared area, however it is not a noisy open plan, nor is it a series of enclosed cells. THAT House enables the residents to be as engaged or as removed from the family as much as they wish, at any time.Save this picture!SectionIf your spaces can adapt to suit your mood, the weather, time of day and usage, then you don’t need numerous rooms. Adaptable, complex areas allow us to make the most of our space, while keeping our homes modest in size and enabling us to have large, well-connected outdoor spaces and gardens.Save this picture!© Tess KellyDefiance.Let’s be clear, THAT House is not a small home. It’s not a solution, nor ‘new prototype’ for Australian housing. However within its context THAT House is defiant and resistant. THAT house is a conscious effort to build a home that is almost half the floor area of its neighbours, yet without compromise of spatial types, functions and quality. The anxiety of not having enough, or leaving something out that you may need later, is a real fear. However with good design and planning, modest size homes are not compromising. In fact, due to their access to the garden and the sophisticated nature of their internal spaces, well designed smaller homes are far superior to their bulky, poorly-considered neighbours.Save this picture!© Tess KellySustainabilityLike all of our buildings, sustainability is at the core of THAT House. We have optimised passive solar gain into all north facing windows. All windows are double-glazed. We have no glazing on western facades and limited glass on the eastern facades. White roofs drastically reduce urban heat sink and heat transfer internally. High performance insulation is everywhere. Along with active management of shade, and passive ventilation demands on mechanical heating and cooling are drastically reduced. A large water tank has been buried within the rear yard. All roof water is captured and reused to flush toilets and water the garden. Where possible we have sourced local trades, materials and fittings. Solar panels with micro-inverters cover the new roof.Save this picture!© Tess KellyProject gallerySee allShow lessKimsclini / + Wise ArchitectureSelected ProjectsRIBA Event: Make No Small PlansEvent Share Cost Plan THAT House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTHAT House / Austin Maynard Architects ArchDaily Sargant Constructions Architects: Austin Maynard Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Area:  255 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Australia Photographs:  Tess Kelly 2015center_img Year:  THAT House / Austin Maynard Architects Pool Contractor: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Tess Kelly+ 41 Share CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia Houses Photographs Builder: Projects Out From The Bluelast_img read more

Another Internet user arrested for lese majeste as Internet regulation dialogue gets under way

first_img Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years Help by sharing this information August 21, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders deplores today’s arrest of Internet user Suwicha Thakhor on a charge of insulting the monarchy (lese majeste), just one day after Thai Netizen Network, a group that defends online freedom of expression, met with Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and suggested ways to reach a compromise on Internet regulation, including the issue of lese majeste. “This arrest gives the government the opportunity to demonstrate its readiness to maintain a real dialogue by keeping a close watch on the conduct of the investigation,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the government to do everything possible to ensure that Thakhor is released as soon as the authorities establish that he has not done anything that violates democratic norms.” The Department of Special Investigations said Thakhor was arrested because his computer’s Internet address matched the address from which comments about the king and his aides had been sent. He was picked up by the police while visiting friends in the provinces. The authorities say they suspect he knew the police were after him and that he left the capital for this reason. Thakhor, who is being held at Department of Special Investigations headquarters in Bangkok, has denied the charges.

San Antonio College, image by Richard Quinton.Kari Post saw her debut season as Pasadena City College women’s volleyball head coach conclude Saturday as the No. 17-seeded Lancers were knocked out of the SoCal Regional playoffs by nemesis and 16th seed Mt. San Antonio, 25-15, 25-23, 25-19, in a play-in round road match.The Lancers and Post can look back at a successful turnaround season for the program as the team went from a 5-16 mark last year to 14-9 this season. PCC finished in third place in the South Coast Conference and among its victories was a triumph over the South’s No. 1 seed and state co-No. 1-ranked Santa Barbara City College.“The team we had on the floor v. Mt. SAC was a lot different than the one we had back at that Pierce Tournament,” Post said. “We played without some top players in the playoff, and we had a few others that were not at the level they were playing pre-conference. Still, the effort was there and we had glimpses we belonged as a playoff squad.”PCC played without top all-around hitter Lahiz Longobardi (injury) and starting middle blocker Angela Banuelos, who became ineligible and left the team a few weeks ago.The Lancers led 22-20 in the second set following a kill by Kirsten Cabarong, but Mt. SAC outscored PCC, 5-1, to take a 2-0 sets lead. In the third set, the Mounties jumped ahead 7-1 and the Lancers closed it to 20-18. Again, Mt. SAC went on a 5-1 run and finished its third sweep of Pasadena this season and the second in a span of four days.Mt. SAC (18-5) had four different players reach double digits in kills as Makenzie Thieme led the group with 13. Meanwhile, Lancers middle blocker Kendra Logan was the team’s kills leader with nine (15 attempts) and Cabarong added eight. Setter Monica Hernandez reached a team-high 13 digs and 16 assists, opposite Kayla Howell had 11 digs, defensive specialist/libero Saige Spence totaled eight digs, and outside hitter Rayleen Rivera made five kills. Backup setter Hannah Clarke chipped in seven assists and served two aces in playing just the third set.“You always want to strive to be the best, but there were some great things about this season,” Post said. “We played well against some really good playoff teams like Ventura, San Diego Mesa and Bakersfield, and we beat top-ranked Santa Barbara. If it weren’t for a power failure at conference champ El Camino who knows if we would have built on a 1-0 sets lead there (lost in 4). The big thing for us is we lacked consistency. I think we also did lose some of the confidence we built early in the year during conference.“We made the playoffs and that was a goal for us. I feel we are going to have a good recruiting off-season and build on this year’s success. We want to be a regular conference and playoff contender.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News HerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCreative Ways To Burn Calories That Require Little EffortHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeauty Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy center_img Your email address will not be published.

The Bench of Justice Vivek Agarwal told ASGI Sanjay Kumar Om that his request for virtual hearing cannot be allowed because the Computer Section of the High Court is the “high risk zone” for Covid-19 infection and hence no person from there can be allowed within the Court room/ chambers. “There is a request made from A.S.G.I. for taking the case through video conferencing. This request cannot be entertained in view of the fact that staff of the High Court has already in high risk of Corona infection and this is more prevalent in the Computer Section. No infrastructure is available to carry out Video conferencing in the Chamber,” the Court said. It also mentioned that there is no additional infrastructure in the Chamber to enable a virtual hearing. Therefore, the matter has been listed as fresh for physical hearing on September 30, 2020. The Court said, “Equipment cannot be allowed to be fixed by a person in the high risk zone exposing the judge and the staff of the Court to such infection. Therefore, I am of the view that request for taking the case through Video Conferencing cannot be entertained for the present.” It may be noted that as per the notification for functioning of the High Court, last issued on July 24, 2020: The facility of hearing through Video-Conferencing “shall be provided” on asking by the learned Advocates. If any party desires to appear in person then the only mode would be through video conferencing. Further, the notification provides that Advocates residing in hot spot areas / containment zones “shall not be allowed to enter” in the Court campus. This provision, when read with the present order, creates a conundrum inasmuch as an Advocate, whose case is listed before this Bench and who resides in a containment zone, shall neither be permitted to present his case via video conferencing, nor through physical hearing.
