first_imgCopyHouses•Geelong, Australia Photographs:  Trevor Mein Text description provided by the architects. Once occupied by a dilapidated dwelling, this new residence explores how contemporary, sustainable architecture can rest peacefully with heritage neighbours. The split-level residence follows the natural topography of the site and leads one along a continuous walkway of recycled timber before opening to the double height northern living zone. This central spine through the linear pavilion also links the internal and external spaces through a system of pivoting, sliding and louvered screens. Save this picture!© Trevor MeinA central courtyard allows the house to breathe and provides varying degrees of openness and intimacy, light and fresh air. Sustainable living solutions include double glazed windows with Argon gas, rain water harvested into a series of underground tanks, grey water is reused for irrigation while recycled timber and low voc coatings are used extensively. Save this picture!© Trevor MeinThe overt expression of the recycled timber structural system, forms a refined portal frame that is expressed both internally and externally. Inspired by traditional heritage houses of the region, a balance of materials including masonry and a lightweight skin of timber weatherboards were incorporated. This all contributed to a finely crafted design response, providing a sense of honesty in structure and materials and ultimately, serenity in the urban landscape.

It was also recently selected for the prestigious 2010 Robin Boyd Foundation Open Day: ‘Designed For Our Time’.Save this picture!© Trevor MeinProject gallerySee allShow lessThomas Phifer and PartnersArticlesIn Progress: Sunset Park Materials Recycling Facility / Selldorf ArchitectsArticles Share Area:  256 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio101 ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGeelongHousesAustraliaPublished on February 25, 2011Cite: “N+C Townhouse / Studio101 Architects” 25 Feb 2011.

Two avid climbers, a professor and a gallery owner, teamed up to build a weekend house in the Sydney Blue Mountains area to host fellow climbers and guest artists. The brief they gave was to design a simple one storey, 3-bedroom dwelling, which would contain a sauna for tired climbers, a studio for dedicated artists and a space for entertaining. The brief lead us to the form of the building, which was divided into two parts and connected by a butterfly roof.
Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!ElevationCosily nestled amongst gumtrees and eucalyptus, the house was designed with tough materials to cope with potential bushfires. The windows were limited and in their place 3m high pivoting toughened double glazed doors were used. Both parts of the house are clad in coreten steel and recycled blackbutt cladding and a butterfly roof with a central gutter, linked to the rainwater tank, spans across the two parts.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonOn the north eastern façade, a rhythm is set with repetitive coreten panels, interspersed with 3m high pivoting doors, the sharpness of this façade in sharp relief to the leafy surrounds. On the north, two tripartite sliding doors recess themselves behind the chimney leading occupants through to the entertaining deck and increasing the size of the living area. On the west, the façade is clad in recycled blackbutt timber and is designed to shield the house from the main road, the hot western sun and to encourage natural cross ventilation through a row of high level glazing.

The time lag can be seen in the evolving colour wheel of the cladding, the studio clearly articulated through the bright orange of the coreten.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonThe house is currently occupied every weekend by climbers and artists, and functions as a revolving gallery as pieces are changed and moved. Save this picture!© Tom FergusonProject gallerySee allShow lessN8-house / Masahiko SatoSelected ProjectsVilla Residential Apartment / Arsh [4D] StudioSelected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officeNorth by northOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustraliaPublished on January 29, 2016Cite: “Sydney Blue Mountain’s House / North by north” 28 Jan 2016.

Journalist receives death threats

first_imgNews The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Help by sharing this information Organisation August 1, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist receives death threats News Reports Journalist Abdou Latif Coulibaly, author of a recently-publishedbook in which he criticises Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade, has beenreceiving anonymous death threats over the past few days, which he hasattributed to members of the president’s political party.”We regret to note such a shift in Senegal, a country in which press freedom andbroader freedom of expression have traditionally been respected. Such extremismis uncalled for, regardless of the nature of the criticisms in the book,” Reporters Without Borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard said in a letter to President Wade. The organisation also urged the president, who reaffirmed his commitment to freedom of expression, to firmly condemn such excesses, introduce concrete measures to ensure Coulibaly’s safety and launch an investigation to identify and punish those responsible for the threats. Coulibaly, a journalist with and director of Sud FM, the leading private radiostation in the country, wrote a book entitled, “Wade, an opposition figure inpower: will political power continue to change hands?”, published in July 2003,in which he criticises the president’s administration. The journalist hasreceived a series of death threats and insults via telephone since 28 July, bothat home and at his office. The callers have reportedly told him that they wouldnot allow him to “destroy what (they have) built over the past 26 years.” On 27July, President Wade had issued a statement in which he deplored certain contentions published by Coulibaly and said he “had faith in his fellow citizens’ judgement of the matter.” On 31 July, the journalist filed a complaint with the stateprosecutor for “insults and death threats”.

Belongings found from family whose car plunged off highway into California river

first_imgHandout via KGO(SANTA CLARITA, Calif.) —  It’s been a week since a family of four vanished after their car plunged into a Northern California river. The parents and their two young children remain missing, but crews have recovered car parts and some of their belongings, authorities said.Sandeep and Soumya Thottapilly and their children, 12-year-old Siddhant and 9-year-old Saachi, disappeared on April 6, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office said.The family, from Santa Clarita in Southern California, was driving south on vacation and was supposed to stop in the San Jose area on April 6 to visit a friend — but they never showed up.That afternoon their car was reported to have plunged into the Eel River, off the 101 freeway south in Mendocino County, the sheriff’s office said.On the day of the reported crash, a search-and-rescue dive team was dispatched, but the crews weren’t able to search because a storm had caused an unsafe height and current in the river, the county sheriff’s office said. The California Highway Patrol did recover a part from a maroon Honda Pilot — the type of car the family was traveling in, the sheriff’s office said.Days went by without a word from the family and they were officially reported missing on Sunday to the San Jose Police Department.On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, water levels in the river dropped, allowing search teams to use a jet boat equipped with a sonar system to probe underwater with a pole, the sheriff’s office said.While the car and the missing family were still not found, the crews recovered car parts and some of their personal items. The sheriff’s office didn’t reveal what the belongings are but said they do “confirm the fact the vehicle that was seen going into the river was that of the Thottapilly family.”Pat Berkowitz, who witnessed the crash last week, told ABC station KGO in San Francisco he saw the car flip over into the river.“The car kept going straight and it was going off the pavement,” he said. “It’s on two wheels and I’m going by and it’s flipping over.”Berkowitz said he tried to go down to the embankment.“I’m yelling, ‘Hello, hello, anyone there?”‘ he said. “It’s horrific.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration has secured license extension by another five years to carry out petroleum operations in the Phuong Dong oil field from the Vietnamese government.The license for the offshore Vietnamese oil field contained in Block 15-2 was due to lapse in April 2020.JX Nippon is partnered by PetroVietnam in the Phuong Dong oil fieldJX Nippon’s subsidiary Japan Vietnam Petroleum is the operator of the Phuong Dong oil field. Japan Vietnam Petroleum is partnered in the offshore field by PetroVietnam Exploration Production (PVEP), a subsidiary of Vietnam’s national oil company PetroVietnam.The duo is said to have been granted the extension based on Japan Vietnam Petroleum’s contribution through the long-term and stable operational history.Apart from the Phuong Dong oil field, Japan Vietnam Petroleum operates the Rang Dong oil field, which is also contained in the same block.In 2013, the five-year license term extension was given for the Rang Dong oil field to implement the Hydrocarbon Gas EOR. Following that, the license term was extended from April 2020 to April 2025 by the Vietnamese government.Japan Vietnam Petroleum entered into a production sharing contract for Block 15-2 in 1992, after which the company found oil/condensate and gas in the offshore concession. The JX Nippon subsidiary started production in Rang Dong and Phuong Dong oil fields in 1998 and 2008, respectively.Japan Vietnam Petroleum has stakes of 46.5% and 64.5% in Rang Dong and Phuong Dong oil fields, respectively. The company has been carrying out the development and production operations in the two Vietnamese oil fields with PVEP and Perenco Rang Dong.JX Nippon said that the total oil and gas produced in Block 15-2 from both the Rang Dong and Phuong Dong oil fields has reached nearly 230 million barrels and 370 billion cubic feet, respectively till date.JX Nippon stated: “We intend to maintain and strengthen our long-term good relationship in Vietnam and to stably generate the cash flow and maximize the value of project through our E&P business activity as Operator.”Earlier this year, the Japanese oil and gas company started production alongside its partners in the Culzean Gas Field and the Mariner Oil Field, both located in the UK North Sea.
