A weekend escape with a strong connection to its environment, this is a house of its context. A house of its environment. A house of its section. A house with a native roof garden as its primary elevation, and a sculptural skylight as its primary interface. A house with a playful interaction between inside and outside, public and private. Save this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographySave this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographyThe house does not attempt to relate to its built context but rather stands in contrast to it, providing a moment of relief in the street. Set low, the house presents its roof as its primary elevation. Conceived as a native garden, the roof announces the house to the community, connecting the street with the water and expanding the adjacent reserve. A sculptural skylight glows at night, signaling the house beneath, drawing sunlight inside, and connecting the inside out, encouraging a playful interaction with the sun’s movement. Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!SectionBeneath its roof, the house is conceived as an object in its landscape. A corten sleeping box emerges from the hill, floating above a glass living box, intersected by a timber mulit-purpose box. Clearly articulated, each box is clad in a single durable material, selected in direct response to the coastal location. With fixed perforated corten screens to the sleeping box windows and a fixed pergola to the glass box living spaces, operable elements are minimised to reduce maintenance in the corrosive coastal environment. Save this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographySave this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographyThe house serves to connect the inhabitants with the landscape beneath and beyond while engaging them with the transience of the environment surrounding them. It harnesses that environment for light, breeze, heat, power, and water while protecting the occupants from the harshness of its elements. Save this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographySave this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographyA large skylight and void invite day-long solar penetration. Its butterfly shape restricts penetration to strategically oriented, vertical triangular panes, preventing overheating, while encouraging a playful interaction with the sun’s movement. Controlled openings with fixed perforated screens to the upper-level windows, and a pergola to the lower level, provide protection from the western sun. Save this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographyIn addition to its ecological benefits, the green roof reduces heat absorption, provides insulation, and reduces solar gain and heat loss. Collected rainwater is recycled to irrigate the garden, while a sixteen panel 5.7kW photovoltaic system and Tesla battery, seen as a linear reflection pond within the roof garden design, provides all the owner’s electricity needs. It was important with the PV panels, that they are thoroughly integrated into the house and roof garden design, serving as an example of how environmental features can enhance, rather than detract, from a design. Save this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographySave this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographyThe house is gas-free, with the PVs providing all electricity, hot water, heating, cooling and cooking needs. The only fossil fuel the house uses is minimal surplus electricity needs from the grid. While it uses collected rainwater for garden irrigation, the house itself is connected to the main water supply. Save this picture!© Michael Nicholson PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessModern Ryokan Kishi-ke Guest House / G architects studioSelected ProjectsGIZI_Art Base / BCHO PartnersSelected Projects Share Houses Year:  Projects “COPY” “COPY” Photographs:  Michael Nicholson Photography Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more

Threats against seven journalists who criticised ruling party legislator

first_imgReporters Without Borders reiterated its fears about the safety of journalists in Bangladesh today after seven journalists in the southern city of Bagerhat received identical letters on 24 August threatening them with violence if they continued to criticise Mah Selim, a parliamentary representative of the ruling Bangladesh National Party (BNP).”It is outrageous that journalists have yet again been targeted by the BNP,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call on the authorities to devote all the necessary resources to investigating this case. It is vital that measures are taken against those responsible for these threats so that journalists can work normally.”The journalists who received the letters were Hasanul Qaiyun of the daily Manabzamin, Ahad Haider of the daily Prothom Alo, Rob Molla of the regional daily Dainik Janmabhumi, Babul Sarder of the daily Dainik Janakantha, Nihar Saha of the News Network of Bangladesh (NNB), Zakaria Mahmud of the daily Amar Desh and Azadul Huq of the daily Sangbad.Each got a personally-addressed copy of the same letter, which threatened to break their hands and legs if they continued to write anything about Selim and warned that members of the radical Islamist group Ahle Hadith Andolan would be used to carry out the threats.The targeted journalists had all reported on 17 August that two young sisters were tortured in an unoccupied house belonging to Selim.Bagerhat press club general secretary Babul Sarder filed a complaint about the threats at the city’s police station and demanded police protection. The police promised to investigate the case.
