The 1960s development plan stipulates a specific position for the house on the site as well as “insertion into the surroundings” according to §34 of the Federal Building Code.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezThe client commissioned the design of a family home that would provide passively heated living space for two adults and four children. Use of energy efficient passive house technology, natural application of materials and prudent use of the resources at hand, make the building sustainable.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe potential adaptation of the house to the family’s living situation was an important aspect thereof.The question is, what is “good” living space? What defines it and what does one really need? These issues guided us in our approach to the layout of the house, which has been efficiently designed to optimally deliver maximum use of space, functionality and flexibility. We strove to create outstanding spatial quality using a minimum of materials. Imaginative overlapping of spatial areas and uses were designed to give the inhabitants a feeling of spaciousness, manifold atmospheres and various realms of possibility—despite minimised living area.Save this picture!AxonRoof CladdingSave this picture!© Brigida GonzálezThe top and roof level of the house has been clad in a “southwester hat” of roof sheeting to provide protection from wind and weather. Similar to exterior “seams”, the roof sheeting meets to form ridges at the edges, these have been welded together to stand out from the water surface. This interpretation of the ridge seal accentuates the envelope of this membrane-covered warm roof. A drainage edge on the eaves guides away the rainwater that falls on the roof cladding, just like the brim of a hat.Save this picture!SectionPrefabrication, Structure, Surface TreatmentSave this picture!SectionThe structural physical demands on passive houses, their short construction period as well as sustainability considerations, all culminated in a decision to build this house in solid wood, optimally using the potentials of prefabrication. The whole building consists of 136 elements, which were fabricated with notches for carpentry and joinery as well as with drill holes and grooves for installation of the electrics.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezWood is the main material to be used consistently throughout the structure and interior surfaces; as a renewable raw material it was chosen not least for its favourable energy balance. To keep costs down, the wooden surfaces in the common rooms have been designed in “refined shell construction.” The industrial surface of these cross-layered wooden elements have been sanded down, bucked and soaped to preserve the light character of the wood.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezSplittableSave this picture!DiagramOne can become two Sustainable and flexible; the house can be split into two living units with separate entrances without much effort should the family situation change to require that. The total area of the house is 138 sqm; one unit would measure 81 sqm and the other 57 sqm. In the warmer months of the year, this living space can be extended by the 12 sqm balcony and the 23 square-metre forecourt.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezGround floor Climate Zone The staggered main living space creates various room heights which zone the ground floor and automatically create different climate zones in winter. Cold outside air remains trapped in the lower entrance area while moderate temperatures prevail in the kitchen-living room and the sitting room higher up is warmest.Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessKKL Luzern Acoustic Upgrade / WSDGArticlesAD Round Up: Refurbishment Part VIIArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/146424/justk-house-martenson-and-nagel-theissen-architecture Clipboard Germany Architects: Martenson and Nagel Theissen Architecture Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Database advice

UK Fundraising welcomes a new columnist this month. Peter Wylie will be writing a monthly column on fundraising databases. Peter holds a doctorate in industrial psychology from Columbia University, and is an expert on how non-profit organisations can do a far more efficient job of fund raising by carefully mining their donor databases.Read his first column on the issue of US and UK fundraising databases below.Database marketing: UK and USDear Dr. Wylie: I’m glad you’re writing a column on database fundraising, but I’m a little concerned that your experience is unique to North America. As you know, there are some pronounced differences between our two countries despite the fact we speak the same language (more or less). Can you speak to my concern. Advertisement Tagged with: Digital Individual giving Technology Howard Lake | 24 December 1998 | News Dear Concerned: Were I in your shoes, I suspect I might feel very much as you do. There certainly are big differences between our two cultures and the ways people do business in them. At the same time, I’m convinced that the principles of database marketing are equally applicable to fundraising in both our countries primarily because of an exceptional book I happened upon a little over a year ago. It’s called Direct and Database Marketing and it’s written by Graeme McCorkell, a UK citizen who makes his home in Shropshire. You should read the book and judge for yourself, but I think you’ll find that Mr. McCorkell offers a number of concepts that those of us in the field of fundraising can and should be borrowing. For example, take these three concepts that McCorkell devotes a number of pages to: the lifetime value of a customer customer share statistical modeling Shouldn’t fund raisers be thinking about the lifetime value of their donors? Shouldn’t we be using our databases to track the long-term value of our donors and to recognize that value with the non-profit equivalent of frequent flyer miles and free upgrades to first class. Shouldn’t fund raisers be thinking about “donor share” the way database marketers in corporations have come to realize that MARKET share may not be nearly so important as CUSTOMER share–the portion of a customer’s disposable income they get versus what a competitor gets? Shouldn’t fund raisers be doing the same kind of statistical modeling that profit making direct marketers do to predict who buys and who doesn’t and who to mail to three and four times as opposed to just once? I think McCorkell’s ideas are right on the money for fundraising is the U.S. They have to be even more on target for fundraising in the U.K. But back to your concern: I have every intention of making suggestions I offer in future columns as relevant to BOTH our cultures as I can. But if, for any reason, I miss the mark a bit, please contact me either through the Web site or by e-mail so I can try to be more responsive to your questions.

High Court throws out case against TV channel NHK in protection of sources case

first_img Help by sharing this information March 24, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 High Court throws out case against TV channel NHK in protection of sources case JapanAsia – Pacific RSF urges recently appointed Japan Prime Minister to take a new turn towards press freedom News May 5, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Japan News Japanese reporter held in Myanmar is charged with “false information” On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia to go furthercenter_img November 19, 2020 Find out more Organisation RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders hailed the Tokyo High Court’s decision overturning the city federal court’s action against a journalist on national TV and radio NHK for refusing to reveal his sources.The high court ruling on 17 March 2006 was similar to one taken by the Niigata federal court last October, which upheld his right not to reveal the sources which allowed him to report on a case of tax fraud by an agro-food business.However Tokyo’s federal court is continuing its action against journalist on Yomiuri Shimbun for refusing to reveal sources in the same case.“The protection of one’s sources is the basis of investigative journalism,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We therefore welcome the high court’s decision to uphold this principle and thereby allow Japanese investigative journalism to continue. We strongly hope for the same outcome in the case of the Yomiuri Shimbun journalist”, said Reporters Without Borders.In October 1997, a journalist on NHK, as well as one on Yomiuri Shimbun, revealed that the Japanese branch of a US agro-food business had hidden income of 8 billion yen (nearly 55 million euros) from the tax authorities.On 14 mars 2006, Tokyo’s federal court ordered the Yomiuri Shimbun journalist to reveal his sources in the case. The federal court justified its order, which ran contrary to the law on protection of sources handed down by the Supreme Court in 1978, arguing that information could have come from an official who had violated professional confidentiality.In an article carried by the daily in October 1997, the journalist referred to a tax official without naming him.The federal court judge ruled: “Allowing a journalist to refuse to reveal his sources would be tantamount to being indirectly involved in protecting a criminal act. This is absolutely unacceptable (…) and does not deserve legal protection. Furthermore, journalists should not be able to protect the confidentiality of their sources when they implicate a public official.” Receive email alerts JapanAsia – Pacific News September 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Student, teacher hospitalized after shooting at Indiana middle school; suspect in custody

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NOBLESVILLE, In.) — A middle school boy allegedly opened fire at an Indiana school Friday morning, police said, leaving a teacher and another student injured – the latest in a string of school shootings this year.The two victims were taken to local hospitals after the shooting at Noblesville West Middle School, which was reported just after 9 a.m., according to Noblesville police.

Delphi girls’ double murder: Police explain mysterious change in person of interest sketch

first_imgIndiana State Police(DELPHI, Ind.) — The Indiana State Police is now clarifying why the first sketch of the person of interest in the mysterious Delphi double murder looks so different from the man in the new suspect sketch released this week: they are two different people.The man seen in the initial person of interest sketch — who was believed to be in his 40s or 50s — is not currently a person of interest in the case, police said Wednesday.Investigators want to the public to focus on this different, younger man pictured in a new sketch released Monday. The suspect is believed to be between 18 and 40 years old, but may appear younger than his age, police said.This young, unknown man is being sought in the killings of eighth-graders Abby Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, who were killed on a hiking path on Feb. 13, 2017.The shocking crime has devastated the residents of Delphi, a tight-knit community of nearly 3,000 people.The killer is believed to currently or previously live in Delphi, work in town or visit on a regular basis, Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter announced Monday.“We believe you are hiding in plain sight” and even “may be in this room,” Carter said at a news conference.“We likely have interviewed you or someone close to you,” Carter said.Delphi residents “should reflect back on people they know in the community that look similar to the sketch released on April 22nd, especially if that person has changed their appearance since the murders,” state police said in a statement on Wednesday.This new suspect sketch “is representative of the face of the person captured in the video on Liberty German’s cell phone as he was walking on the high bridge” the day of the crime, police said.In 2017, police released a grainy image from Libby’s phone showing someone on the trail the day the girls went missing. On Monday, police revealed a new, brief video clip showing that suspect walking on the bridge near where the girls were last seen.“When you see the video, watch the person’s mannerisms as they walk,” Carter said Monday. “Do you recognize the mannerisms as being someone you might know?”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
