The plot of land where this private residence was built is located in a city in a private housing development. The district is full of pine trees, so the house feels like it is surrounded by forest.A minor road runs along the length of the plot. Save this picture!Courtesy of Arch-D The building’s surroundings played a role in its composition; the presence of the trees and the variation in terrain acted as invisible assistants in the design of the house.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe vicinity of the road made the task a little more complicated, but at the same time it allowed architectural devices to be used which would later enhance the form of the building. The initial concept for the building was to create a structure formed of two elements with different purposes – a social space (common area) and a private zone.Save this picture!Courtesy of Arch-D   The common area is located along the road, whilst the private zone was placed at the back of the plot.These two volumes are completely different, both in their form and in the principles employed for organising space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Arch-DThe social space is an open, glass structure, with walls only in the sitting areas at a sufficient height to prevent the room being visible from the road.The private zone was built as a separate block, with windows on its façades. The size and location of the window openings on the surface of the façade are purely functional. The social space is covered by a roof that resembles the wings of a bird in take-off, giving the feeling of open space and a connection with the surrounding landscape. Save this picture!Floor Plan All the bedrooms are in the private zone, and each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom.The master bedroom is in the very centre of the building, under the ‘wings’ of the roof.This part of the house is flooded with sunlight and closely linked to the environment.However, the blinds can also be closed when required.Save this picture!Courtesy of Arch-DThe kitchen and dining area are in an open-plan space with a soft zone (sofa), and are separated only by a small wall, which does not go down to the floor, thus creating the impression of a unified space.  The same thinking was employed for the finishes – the same material, colour and texture are employed inside and outside, except for the private block, where tranquil, pale tones and paintwork prevail. Save this picture!Courtesy of Arch-DThe house is set in woodland where there is little sunlight and practically no wind, which placed some constraints on the use of energy-efficient equipment.We managed to fit the house with an air source heat pump, providing energy for the heating system and for cooling on warm summer days.Save this picture!ElevationAll the energy systems and the lighting, automatic gates, blinds and air humidifying system are controlled by KNX. Project gallerySee allShow lessME House / Otta Albernaz ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsDesigning Invisible Architecture: Bird Hides by BiotopeArticles Share Flügel Haus / Arch-Dlast_img read more

Aside from vindicating the very presence of the house, we imagined Casa JA from the beginning as a discreet and slight horizontal line that highlights the sky and the mountains in the background with the latest rays of the sun draining between them. We had to keep the main façade timidly hidden from the eyes of those circulating the streets of the San-ta Barbara glen. We wanted the house to be so intimate and silent that only suggested its presence, avoiding any presumption, exaggerated exhibition or the typical ostentation of the place where it is located.Save this picture!© Cesar Manuel Belio LealSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Cesar Manuel Belio LealIts black stone interiors pretend to emphasize the cover and highlight that horizontal line on which the sun, the sky, and the mountains would rest. The magic sunsets perceived from its location was something important for us throughout the design process. The spaces wished to be influenced by the beauty of such light that does nothing but produces a particular enchantment.Save this picture!© Cesar Manuel Belio LealThe house is divided into three blocks placed on different levels connected by wide covered and uncovered stairs that make up a continuous and fluid space. The gardens, patios, and squares organize the rest of the program, provide a certain introspective, domesticated and silent nature and fill the spaces with such intimacy and recollection that reminds us a bit of the prehispanic and colonial architecture of some towns in Michoacan.Save this picture!© Cesar Manuel Belio LealProject gallerySee allShow lessSteven Holl Unveils Curved Mixed-Use CIFI Building in BeijingArchitecture NewsSancal Pavilion at Salone del Mobile is Inspired by the Maze of Milan UndergroundArticles Share Rogelio Vallejo Bores and Francisco Noriega Ayala Projects CopyHouses•Morelia, Mexico Photographslast_img read more


RNID to launch new accessible ‘user-centred’ website

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis RNID, the organisation that represents the needs of the nine million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK, will shortly be launching its new ‘user-centred’ website. The new website has been completely redeveloped based on extensive research with website users.The new website has been developed following extensive user-testing, and RNID says that it combines “a high level of accessibility and strong design.”Carol Monoyios, RNID’s Director of Marketing and Membership, said: “We set out to create a web-experience which was equivalent for all users. Not just a site that was a ‘best effort’ in accessibility. And we’ve demonstrated that it is possible to achieve accessibility without compromising on the design or the quality of the site.” Advertisement Tagged with: Digital RNID to launch new accessible ‘user-centred’ website About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Researching massive growth in giving.center_img Howard Lake | 15 February 2005 | News Under the Disability Discrimination Act all websites are now required to be accessible, but there remains considerable confusion about how to achieve a truly accessible and easy to use site.RNID has paid particular attention to ensuring that the new site is written in Plain English, which is essential to make the site accessible to deaf people whose first language is British Sign Language. The use of Plain English is often overlooked in developing accessible sites, where the focus has more often been on page structure to achieve accessibility for groups such as blind users. Yet any site written in Plain English will be accessible to a wider audience.Carol Monoyios explained the level of user testing they employed: “RNID tested prototypes of the site with people with a wide range of disabilities – including hearing and sight loss, dyslexia, colour blindness, wheelchair users and people with limited dexterity – to ensure the site reflected how people intuitively search for information.”The new site includes a considerably improved shop, which sells assistive technology products from RNID Sound Advantage. RNID will launch its new website on 17 March 2005.  20 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

3 dead, including suspect, 2 injured after ‘horrific’ shooting, fire in Maryland

first_imgkali9/iStock(BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md.) — Three people are dead, including a suspected shooter, and two injured following reports of an active shooter and fire at a home in Baltimore County, Maryland, authorities said.Police officers responding to the Woodlawn neighborhood, west of Baltimore, after 6:40 a.m. Saturday found a man armed with a gun outside a burning residence, Baltimore County Police Department spokesperson Joy Stewart said during a press briefing.Police fatally shot the suspect, Stewart said. The officer-involved shooting is under investigation and it is unclear at this time how many officers discharged their firearms, she said. The suspect has not been publicly identified.Two people died, one victim was critically injured and another suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident, police said. Authorities have not shared any additional details on the victims.Two people initially unaccounted for after the incident have since been found.Police are continuing to search the scene for any other possible victims.There was no continued threat to the community, police said.The two-alarm fire destroyed two townhomes and heavily damaged a third, Tim Rostkowski, a spokesperson for the Baltimore County Fire Department, said during the briefing.The fire was being fed by natural gas, and firefighters were still working to control the gas leak by Saturday afternoon, authorities said. A utility company was working to shut off the natural gas to the home.“We don’t have any preliminary information whatsoever on the exact origin or cause [of the fire],” Rostkowski said. “That’s part of the ongoing investigation.”The call for the active shooter and fire came in at the same time, and authorities are investigating if the two incidents are related, authorities said.“We have this fire that happened, we also have this suspect who was armed,” Stewart said. “How they’re all related, it’s really too early to tell at this point.”Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski said he was at the scene of the “horrific incident” Saturday morning and will make “all possible resources” available to those impacted.“This rapidly evolving situation has required a multi-agency response and will take time to fully investigate,” he said on Twitter. “Today, we pray for the injured victims and the families who have lost loved ones.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

City Says Federal Funds Were Not Used in Alleged Embezzlement

first_imgCity Says Federal Funds Were Not Used in Alleged EmbezzlementMARCH 19TH, 2018 Lauren Leslie LAUREN LESLIE EVANSVILLE, INDIANA The city entity that distributes funds to ECHO Housing Corporation says unequivocally, it can confirm no federal dollars were used to pay Stephanie Tenbarge’s property taxes.Last week ECHO announced, then, Executive Director Tenbarge was stepping down. On Friday we learned the former director used ECHO funds to pay taxes on personally owned properties.Kelley Coures with the Department of Metropolitan Development says the city uses a check reimbursement system when distributing federal funds. Additionally, the federal government tracks where the dollars go, “HUD requires us to not only pay the claims based on reimbursable but then once a year my staff, three people from my staff, go to an agency like ECHO and they make sure their books match our books,” said Course.The last time the city checked its records with ECHO was in October 2017 and everything matched up. ECHO provides housing and assistance to people in economic crisis. Going forward the Department of Metro Development says it will continue to work with interim director Chris Metz.Evansville Police say there is no criminal investigation into Tenbarge’s alleged actions at this time.Lauren LeslieFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more


Press release: Improved mental health support for children in care

first_img Statistics on looked after children, including mental health. The Department for Education has awarded £240,000 to a group of organisations, led by the Anna Freud Centre, to work with Action for Children, Child Outcomes Research Consortium, Research in Practice and NSPCC, to deliver up to 10 local pilots over two years. The pilot areas will also benefit from a share of £650,000 to deliver the scheme.The programme will look at which professionals should be involved in the assessment and develop best practice that ensures the child’s unique needs are at the centre of the process.A consortium led by SQW, an economic development and social research organisation has also been awarded £150,000 to carry out an independent evaluation to look at the effectiveness and impact of the pilots.Sheila Redfern, Head of Specialist Trauma and Maltreatment Service at the Anna Freud Centre, said: Up to 10 pilots across the country will trial new high quality mental health assessments, that ensure young people are assessed at the right time, with a focus on their individual needs as they enter care.Statistics show that 62 per cent of looked after children are in care due to abuse or neglect, which can have a lasting impact on their mental health and emotional wellbeing.Currently half of all children in care meet the criteria for a possible mental health disorder, compared to one in ten children outside the care system. The pilots will identify a child’s mental health and broader wellbeing needs, including whether a referral to a more specialist service is needed.Minister for Children and Families, Nadhim Zahawi, said: This announcement follows the publication of the Government’s Children and Young People’s Mental Health Green Paper in December 2017. Backed by £300 million in funding, this aims to improve access to mental health services for children and young people through designated mental health leads in schools and by reducing waiting times for mental health services.Further information: We are delighted to have been successful with our bid for these pilots. Looked after children are a key priority for the Specialist Trauma and Maltreatment team here at AFNCCF and we will be working with Action for Children, Research in Practice, CORC and NSPCC to bring together a wealth of expertise and experience in this area. Looked after children are highly vulnerable to emotional and relationship difficulties, putting them at risk of long-term mental health issues and placement breakdown with their carers, so it is vital they get the right help at the right time. The assessment process at an individual level is critical to achieving this. We are very excited to have this opportunity to support improvements through the pilots. Children in care are some of the most vulnerable in society and have often experienced traumatic events, so it is vital they receive care and support that is tailored to their needs. We want to improve support for every child in care and these pilots will help to provide high-quality mental health assessments when children enter the care system and make sure the right support is in place. The Government has pledged a total of £1.7 billion to help promote, protect and improve children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing. This includes an extra £300m to provide more support for school children.last_img read more
