Screen House is a beautifully integrated development that houses a large family and various age groups. It comprises three discrete spaces, each one serving the needs of sub-sets of the unit, yet linked in spirit and design. The site is located facing north, with all other three sides abutting adjacent properties. Within this, the three main constituents — facing west, north, and east — are arranged in a C, encircling a central green courtyard that actually functions as a common space; an open-air living room. This is where the family congregates, to share stories, watch movies, read, and unwind.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Photographix IndiaThe connectivity of the three homes is articulated by waterbodies, semi-open spaces, and vegetation; while sightlines have been maintained by selecting plants and trees (especially those of the central court) which are not too dense or will not become too tall. The individual homes were planned to keep in mind the size of the plot, sun path, family requirements, climate. The architecture explores the interplay of alliances between plant life, water, sky, built-form, and humans. The building comprises of sections interlocked with the functionality of the spaces to create a balanced whole.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaElevationally, all three structures see a prominent use of brise soleil in the form of screens — hence the name. The landscape was meticulously planned to seem natural, organic, with several waterbodies at intervals. For the architect, water plays a symbolic role. “It changes our relationship to space,” he says. “It creates a reflection and adds an element of sensuality. Water symbolizes life.” The exposed concrete on the elevation is tautly balanced with the earthen color and screens. A basic, close-to-nature basic palette was selected — stone, wood, and concrete — which helped create a stable thermal mass.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaDuring the day, the house takes on a very “private” appearance. A veil of timber screens, horizontal and vertical, wraps around the houses, protecting the façade and the main living areas from the harsh sun and heat of the climate of Ahmedabad. But at night, with the rooms illuminated within, the effect akin to a magical lantern. Everything was planned in rhythm: architecture, landscape, and interiors. Each house has a waterbody at the entrance porch and a personal sit out in the continuum. The intent was to keep the homes warm and welcoming, a house that always remains open.Save this picture!Elevations and Sections – Oak HouseA living space that merges with the garden, so that it almost becomes a part of it. The constant presence of water in every house infuses serenity. The screens protect and form a transparent curtain to the garden maintaining a visual connectivity between exterior and interior. A co-evolution which resulted in a coherent structure and style and expression maintaining architectural vocabulary. The interior is artistically composed and remarkably spacious. The orientation is to catch the breeze through balconies, verandas and wide overhanging/cantilevered eaves that would also provide requisite shade.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaSave this picture!© Photographix IndiaThe interior programme clearly demarcates and segregates semi-private and private areas. Even beyond the main entry, a vestibule caters to casual visitors. After this, the programme unfolds via a passage leading, on one side, to the prayer room, kitchen and dining and patio, and, on the other, the guest room, elevator and staircase. The staircases of each homes are defined differently each a sculptural element on its own. The prayer room is a place for spiritual repose highlighted by daylight that penetrates from a skylight above.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaThe double-height of the indoor living room in conjunction with the green vista that unfurls through floor-to-ceiling windows furthers the ‘living in a garden’ endeavour. The dining rooms are also extended to a timber patio with a lily pond brimming with koi fish. Essentially, the ground floor living areas are conceptualized as an open space overlooking the landscape filled with biodiversity and water. In contrast, the upper level is private and houses three bedrooms, each one overlooking the central landscape, and featuring a generous ensuite and dressing–closet.Save this picture!DetailsThe development also shares several facilities such as a well-equipped gym and jacuzzi in the basement of a separate structure, an outdoor barbeque facility attached to a covered, fully-glazed gazebo, and a fire pit to cater to extending to the garden and water bodies. The selection of materials, meticulous attention to detail, modulation and movement of space planning and inculcating landscaping as part of the whole, are the hallmarks of this development. There is abundance of natural light and nature. The Screen House is an urban residence that embraces the community living culture. A quiet retreat amidst the bustle of the city.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaProject gallerySee allShow lessVacation House Havblik / Mette Lange ArchitectsSelected ProjectsTai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Art / Herzog & de MeuronSelected Projects Share India “COPY” CopyAbout this officeThe Grid ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAhmedabadIndiaPublished on August 28, 2018Cite: “The Screen House / The Grid Architects” 28 Aug 2018.

Journalists banned from Gaza Strip hospitals and Rafah until further notice

first_img WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists PalestineMiddle East – North Africa May 28, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the Hamas interior ministry’s decision to deny Palestinian and foreign journalists access to the southern city of Rafah and to all hospitals in the Gaza Strip until further notice. The ban was issued on 14 August, after fighting broke out in Rafah between the Hamas government and a radical Islamist group.“The Hamas-led government’s interior ministry has again demonstrated a desire to control news and information in the Gaza Strip,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Only the presence of journalists would ensure independent information about what took place in Rafah on 14 and 15 August.”The press freedom organisation added: “This ban leaves journalists powerless and allows the authorities to avoid having to account for their actions during these important clashes.”The fighting between the Hamas government’s security forces and members of Jund Ansar Allah, an armed Salafist group, left more than 20 dead and 112 wounded. It was sparked by the Friday sermon delivered by the group’s leader, Sheikh Abdul Latif Musa, in the Ibn Taymiyya mosque on 14 August, in which he announced the creation of an Islamic emirate in Rafah.The interior ministry’s ban has been greeted with anger by virtually all of the Gaza Strip’s journalists, who say it is an attack on media freedom and their autonomy. The Palestinian media and Palestinian journalists managed to keep operating and provide coverage during the Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip last January. But this ban concerns Palestinian journalists as well.“Many photographers and cameramen have been prevented from working in the neighbourhood where the Ibn Taymiyya mosque is located since just after the start of the fighting on Friday until today,” said AFP photographer Said Al-Khatib. “They told us it was for safety reasons.”In a 15 August communiqué, the interior ministry accused the Dubai-based satellite TV station Al Arabiya of broadcasting a report that contained lies and “insulted the Palestinian resistance fighters.” August 17, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists banned from Gaza Strip hospitals and Rafah until further notice Follow the news on Palestine News News to go furthercenter_img RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes News June 3, 2021 Find out more Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists Organisation PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts News May 16, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

José Fernando Gonzáles decided to convert the station to a general media outlet. The motive remains unclear but the professional lead should not be ruled out.”“Whatever the reasons behind this murder, it fuels a climate which is detrimental to the work of journalists in the country. We send the family and colleagues of José Fernando Gonzáles our deepest condolences. His murder must not go unpunished,” it concluded.The radio boss died instantly when he was shot three times by two men who came to the studios of Radio Mega saying they wanted to buy advertising. They then fled in a truck in which three accomplices were waiting for them.The local press reported that according to the police those who instigated the killing had been apparently been identified but their names had not been made public.It was the second recent murder of a media director in Honduras. Germán Antonio Rivas, owner of Corporación Maya Visión – Canal 7 television, which specialises in investigative journalism, was murdered in 2003.last_img read more

Watch: The Cranberries conferred with Honorary Doctorates from University of Limerick

first_imgUniversity of Limerick conferred Honorary Doctorates of Letters on the band members of Limerick rock band The Cranberries.Mike and Noel Hogan with their family at Plassey House, UL.Pic: Cian ReinhardtGuitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan were presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters. The Cranberries drummer Fergal Lawler was unable to attend and his doctorate was accepted on his behalf by Mike Hogan. Eileen O’Riordan, mother of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan, who tragically passed away this time last year, was presented with a posthumous Honorary Doctorate of Letters for Dolores O’Riordan.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking to the press before the ceremony, Eileen O’Riordan Dolores didn’t know how loved she was by the people of Limerick.“I don’t think she did. She loved Limerick, she was very proud, happier in Limerick than any place. Well I didn’t realise how much she was loved, I didn’t really.“To take that in, I keep telling the children how much everyone loves her and what a support it is. Our comfort in it is toward the family.”Band Member Noel Hogan said Dolores would “get a great kick out of this”.“These kind of things she used to get a real skit at,” he said, adding “because even when this was brought up to us, I think it was about four years ago, when the university first approached us, timing was never right for us.”“I remember her telling her brothers, who have different degrees, that she would be more qualified than they are. You know, that was her personality.”UL President Dr Des Fitzgerald said “UL had initially planned to present these doctorates to The Cranberries in April 2017 however promotional and rehearsal commitments prevented the band from being available to accept the honour at that stage.  It is with very sad regret that since that time the world and more importantly her family and band mates have lost Dolores O’Riordan and her incredible voice. We very much appreciate her family’s presence here today and particularly her mother Eileen who is accepting this Honorary Doctorate on Dolores’ behalf.’ NewsCommunityHeritageWatch: The Cranberries conferred with Honorary Doctorates from University of LimerickBy Staff Reporter – January 19, 2019 1475 Facebook Linkedin Email Previous articleLimerick students will help commemorate first DáilNext articleFilm review – Stan and Ollie Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.iecenter_img Print Advertisement Twitter WhatsApplast_img read more

Public Health Mid-West advice following outbreak of VTEC

first_imgEmail Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limerick Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Print Facebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads WhatsApp Linkedin Twitter TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostThe Department of Public Health Mid-West center_img Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Previous articleLocal winners aplenty at the Limerick Races – Weekly Racing NewsNext articleHealth chief reiterates importance of hand hygiene following outbreak of dangerous stomach bug Sarah Carrhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Photo by Mélissa Jeanty on Unsplash THE Department of Public Health Mid-West would like to highlight the importance of strong hand hygiene and effective well water treatment, following a recent outbreak of Verotoxigenic E. coli (VTEC) in a single setting in the Mid-West region. VTEC is a powerful strain of E. coli bacterium that can cause serious illness in children aged under five, and the elderly.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up  Public Health Mid-West is currently managing an outbreak of VTEC among young children in a single setting. We can confirm that it is currently under control. We would like to reassure the public that these isolated outbreaks do not affect the department’s work in managing the COVID-19 pandemic, or any other infectious disease in the region. VTEC can live in the gut of healthy cattle and sheep, but can be a source of food poisoning and can produce a toxin that can cause inflammation of the bowel which can lead to severe stomach cramps and bloody diarrhoea. Diarrhoea can last between two to nine days. Other people may experience very mild or no symptoms at all. A hospital laboratory can confirm the presence of VTEC if you provide a stool sample to your doctor. The most common ways to be infected with VTEC are through contact with farm animals (including those in pet and open farms), untreated water from private wells, person to person contact in creches or households where there are children under five years of age, and through food and drinks that are contaminated with tiny amounts of faecal matter. VTEC is usually uncomplicated and most people recover without issue, and it can be treated by drinking plenty of fluids. Antibiotics do not kill the VTEC germs, and may increase the risk of Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome (HUS).  VTEC can be particularly problematic as it can cause HUS in 5-10% of cases. HUS leads to the destruction of red blood cells and kidney failure, with some patients requiring intensive dialysis treatment. Five percent of people who develop this dangerous, life-threatening condition may die. Incidence of VTEC tends to be higher in warmer weather, particularly over the summer time, though the annual case number is likely to be lower in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Mid-West, there were 128 cases in 2018; 130 in 2019; and 117 in 2020*. Dr Rose Fitzgerald, Specialist in Public Health Medicine at Public Health Mid-West, said: “Ireland has one of the highest incidence rates of VTEC in Europe, and the Mid-West has one of highest incidence rates in Ireland. While VTEC can last in the system for as short as a week, it can sometimes take several months to clear the infection. Anyone who is infected, or is a close contact of a case requires clearance from a public health doctor to attend healthcare, childcare or work that involves food-handling. “It’s a serious disease that can cause serious life-changing illness in young children and the elderly. It underpins the importance of hand hygiene before and after preparing food, after contact with farm animals and their environment, and effective treatment and rehabilitation of private wells. We encourage everyone in Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary to avail of their respective council’s domestic well grant schemes to ensure that your private water supply is clean. This financial assistance could prevent serious illness and save a life.” Here are links to local authority grant schemes for domestic well water in the Mid-West: Limerick City and County Council: https://www.limerick.ie/council/services/water-and-drainage/rural-water-programme/grants-individual-water-supplies-housesClare County Council: https://www.clarecoco.ie/services/water-and-wastewater/rural-water-services/Tipperary County Council: https://www.tipperarycoco.ie/content/well-grantstesting Advertisement Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsHealthLimerickPublic Health Mid-West advice following outbreak of VTECBy Sarah Carr – March 29, 2021 353 last_img read more
