It´s a hard process, full of illusion and also, of course, difficult decisions that pushes the relationship and the couple´s economy. With this in mind, dooa arquitecturas took the responsibility of designing and building their home. And the result is casajijona, a project that responds to the environment of croplands at different levels. Save this picture!© Pepe Pascual FuentesIts horizontal design generates an interesting dialog with the surrounding landscape. The vegetation enters in land occupied by the villa, recovering the old existing cropland. Once built it became the small-big project for our friends. Living in a cropland Save this picture!© Pepe Pascual FuentesThe experience of living in the villa is aimed to create a continuous flow between interior and exterior and vice versa. Its design gives an abstract structure to the wise landscape that surrounds the building site. This way, the transition interior-exterior occurs in several intermediate rooms, half-exterior half –interior, which have a more domestic scale and which act as an interface with the existing agricultural landscape.Project gallerySee allShow lessFixing a Road in Johannesburg: 26’10 South Architects on Informal ArchitectureArticlesInhabitable Slot / Dimos Moysiadis + Ioannis Oikonomou + Xaris TsitsikasArticles Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Jijona, Spain ArchDaily Save this picture!© Pepe Pascual Fuentes+ 20 Share Casajijona / dooa arquitecturaslast_img read more

Amazing view, still just nearby a city/town centre in a quiet residential area First impressions: ideal site yet still empty. Despite the low price of steep slope of the terrain does not allow a usual house and repels potential buyers. Save this picture!© Ivan NemecThis particular site was selected by a man, who looks forward to any kind of challenges and who as a client fully relied on our expertiese. Despite out affirmation, he still believed he will have a house without compromises and went and bought the site. This man later client ,owner of the construction company became devoted builder. He was well aware of our work, we previously cooperated on some of our previous built projects. From the usual triangle client-builder-architect became a wonderful client-architect dialog. Simple building volume is elevated into the free space by a pair of branching legs carried by a steel grate.The grate is touching the terrain at the point of access. These three bearing points can hold a lightweight timber building for a typical family. Save this picture!© Ivan NemecThis effective solution prooved to be also very effiecient and advantageous. The site is located in the Mountains where melting snow could potentially negatively impact the building form embedded into the slope. This also simplified the groundworks and waterproofing and improved the budget for other parts of the building. Save this picture!© Ivan NemecThe client initially expressed a desire to own a house with all rooms on a single floor, after he bought the site he resigned from that idea, however we managed to design the house in such way after all. All rooms, living room, dining room and kitchen, three bedrooms, office, utility room, bathroom with a sauna and separate toilet. All directly accessible from the main road even for physically challenged person. Save this picture!© Ivan NemecCantilivering roof overhang protects large glazed window areas from overheating in summer, while this arrangement allows sunshine to enter the interior and contribute to reduce heating loads in winter. Everybedroom has a direct access to the terrace overlooking the garden, the town and mountain slopes.

Imagine a retired person who after years of live on bureaucratic organizations, now wants to close his eyes to urban life, take a Scissor on his hand and smell the grapes that by himself planted it. His shelter is a house in a deprived and almost remote desert village near Isfahan city. Everything is bare and simple. So, there is no room for pretend. His home is a place for seeing and silence. Seeing the fast moves of birds on the wall and hearing the silence of desert stone. Sometimes, un-built is more important than built. There is courtyard in this house which could be a silent witness for many unexpected memories. Now built environment is in interaction with nature not in contradiction with. Part of it and For It!Save this picture!© Tahsin BaladiSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Tahsin BaladiThis project is the result of gathering some functional spaces (look like bath, living room, etc.) around an open space. Although using a courtyard is a fundamental solution to Iranian architecture, recently many people neglect it. We tried to use a historical content (subjectivism) into the contemporary form (a simple cube). From the outside, the only thing which could be interesting about this house is its simplicity. An experimental plaster, which is made on site, is sprayed on the whole exterior walls and give an appearance look like adobe to the walls. A White stucco also covered all the interior walls to create a white canvas for placing some artworks.Save this picture!Floor PlanSustainability DimensionWe believe that this project could somehow sustainable because for the shortage of budget (almost 30000 US Dollar) and farness from big cities, we decided to use local materials and workers. So, we experimentally try some new building techniques alongside old techniques. Now, the local workers can do something which couldn’t do before this. Furthermore, our focus was to use local materials look like sand, stone, straw and etc.Save this picture!© Tahsin BaladiProject gallerySee allShow lessCabin Kvitfjell / Lund Hagem ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Kham Mang Chapel / BHASelected Projects Share Houses Save this picture!© Tahsin Baladi+ 26 Share Area:  122 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Photographs:  Tahsin Baladi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•Irancenter_img Through Gardens House / BAM Architects Office 2017 ArchDaily Photographs Year:  Architects: BAM Architects Office Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/880966/through-gardens-house-bam-architects-office Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBAM Architects OfficeOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIranPublished on October 05, 2017Cite: “Through Gardens House / BAM Architects Office” 04 Oct 2017.

To keep pace with the rapid urbanization of the tier 2 city in which the residence is located, the client aspired to upgrade to a modern, luxurious lifestyle while still living as a traditional joint family. Within the relatively compact floor area, the design had to accommodate the needs of a large family, providing a sense of spaciousness while maintaining the right balance of connection and privacy. For a narrow plot measuring only 28 feet wide and 45 feet long with a common wall at the rear, and narrow setbacks of 1.5 feet along the width, the house had to depend only on the north face and overhead light for daylighting and natural ventilation.Save this picture!© Geeth GopinathEschewing all embellishment, the building form was constructed as an exercise in restraint with only strong proportions defining the design intent. The folding planes of the staircase volume with an exposed concrete finish stand counterpoised against the white plastered minimal rectilinear mass housing the living spaces. Glass, exposed concrete finish and white plaster form the minimal material palette for the external form. The Golden Rectangle was used to determine the scale and proportion of the building elements. Save this picture!© Geeth GopinathFacing north, the front façade features tall windows scaling two floors allowing sumptuous natural light to penetrate deep into the open layout of the house. Mild steel vertical louvers clad with Fundermax outside the windows serve as adornment for the building façade, act as a security device and also a shading device. The sky-lights above a double heightened internal court, together with the tall expanse of windows makes the home self-sufficient in natural light regardless of the shade from future property developments around it. The skylights also have a built-in provision for hot air to vent out of the building through perforated metal sheets.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!First Floor PlanCommissioned as both architects and interior designers for this residence, considerable effort was put into optimizing the modest floor area of 2000 square feet to make it work for a large, traditional joint family. Within the layout, several devices were marshaled to expand the perceived measure of space – a fully open plan, double heights, large north-facing windows, suspended ceiling planes, metal jaali screens, thin metal shelves, and uninterrupted long diagonal interior views.Save this picture!© Geeth GopinathEvery interior artifact was conceived to perform double duty – screens define distinct areas within the layout while also serving as a bold decorative accent; sleek metal shelving framing the television allows display of objet d’arts while cordoning off the staircase; the dining table within the kitchen also becomes an extended preparation counter while cooking; the dropped ceiling planes conceal sunken slabs, beams and lighting devices, while it is shaped to echo the functions below, acting as a subtle orienting device within the open plan.Save this picture!© Geeth GopinathProject gallerySee allShow lessFreedomek No.061 / Atelier Stepán, FreedomkySelected ProjectsGreen Option Food Court / RAMOPRIMOSelected Projects Share “COPY” Lead Architect: Vinay Mavinakere Not So Big House / Sudaiva Studio Year:  Photographs:  Geeth Gopinath Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily “COPY” Not So Big House / Sudaiva StudioSave this projectSaveNot So Big House / Sudaiva Studio Area:  2700 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Geeth Gopinath+ 17Curated by Clara Ott Sharecenter_img 2018 Photographs Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyHouses•Bellur, India ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913119/not-so-big-house-sudaiva-studio Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913119/not-so-big-house-sudaiva-studio Clipboard Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Euro World, Kingsmen, South India Agencies, Spacewood, Trimble, Urban Texture Houses Projects Architects: Sudaiva Studio Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSudaiva StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBellurIndiaPublished on March 17, 2019Cite: “Not So Big House / Sudaiva Studio” 16 Mar 2019.

Russia: Testimony extracted under torture used to jail Dagestani journalist

first_img Abdulmumin Gadzhiev / Facebook News May 21, 2021 Find out more RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Council of EuropeImprisoned Читать на русском / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the release of Abdulmumin Gadzhiev, a newspaper journalist whose pre-trial detention on a trumped-up charge of funding terrorism was ordered yesterday by a court in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan, an autonomous southern Russian republic that neighbours Chechnya.As two journalists were being released in quick succession in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, Gadzhiev was arrested on 14 June at his home – where police seized computer equipment and other electronic devices – and was then detained for an initial two-month period under yesterday’s court order. The head of the religious affairs section at the independent Makhachkala-based weekly Chernovik, Gadzhiev and ten other people are facing up to 20 years in prison on charges of funding terrorism. The police claim that he sent money to “charities” suspected of financing Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra. Gadzhiev denies sending them any money.The case seems to be based above all on the testimony of a witness, Kemal Tambiev, who Gadzhiev says he does not know, who retracted his initial statement and whose face was badly bruised when he appeared in court. Tambiev later said he had not read the statement before signing it and that physical pressure was used to get him to testify against Gadzhiev.“You cannot imprison a journalist on the basis of testimony extracted under torture,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “If the police are unable to produce any convincing evidence against Abdulmumin Gadzhiev, they must free him at once and drop all proceedings against him.”After initially tolerating the presence of reporters, the court ordered them removed for the final part of yesterday’s court hearing. Dozens of journalists repeatedly gathered outside the court to demand Gadzhiev’s release. They all say that his detention poses a major threat to media independence in Dagestan.One of Dagestan’s most popular newspapers, Chernovik is accustomed to being harassed. After being accused of colluding with terrorism for three years, it was finally acquitted in 2011. Its founder, Khadzhimurad Kamalov, was gunned down a few months later.Russia is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
