As mentioned before, the house is positioned on the top of the hill where it naturally turns into a V-shaped Corner. Following the plot we marked out a V-shape plan, where all the functions were accommodated. The two “legs” of the plan, accommodate the public functions of the family i.e. living room, dining room and kitchen on one side, and the ‘private’ areas, the three main bedrooms, on the other side. . The two are connected together with a glass bridge. This very amphitheatrically v-shape configuration allows us to accommodate all the public outdoor spaces as swimming pool and barbeque areas in its naturally created cavity. Save this picture!© Eleonora KatakinaiteThe fact that the whole building is lifted up gives design flexibility. The design introduction of an indoor garden in the basement provides light to the spaces underneath (office space, games room, guest house) in such a way that they are not secondary rooms any more. These rooms actually become very evocative spaces as they are protected from the intensive heat of the sun.Save this picture!© Eleonora KatakinaiteProject gallerySee allShow lessEncants Market / JDS ArchitectsArticlesPride’s Rest / Lindsay Brown StudioArticles Share Vassilis Residence / VARDAstudioSave this projectSaveVassilis Residence / VARDAstudio Houses CopyHouses•Nicosia, CopyAbout this officeVARDAstudioOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNicosiaHousesPublished on September 12, 2010Cite: “Vassilis Residence / VARDAstudio” 12 Sep 2010.

Our client asked us to design a one story extension on the back-façade of a 1900th housing complex. Just like the extensions of the neighbours. However we noticed that the lack of space was not on the ground floor, but it was on the first floor (the bedrooms). The sleeping rooms of the children date back to 1900. In one of the rooms there wasn’t even space for an average single bed. Save this picture!© René de WitThat’s why we proposed to stretch the house completely by 2 meters. Just enough to make two average sized children bedrooms. Save this picture!Floor PlanBut the building regulations only permitted extensions on the ground floor not higher than 3 meters. We decided to write a letter to the Mayor and City Council Members, to convince them our plans were better for the future of the neighbourhood. And it worked!

The houses make a characteristic ensemble, dating from around 1900 in the (for that time) popular cottage style. In spite of some small changes, the front-facade of the ensemble is still pretty much in original state. The back-facade however is cluttered by small sheds and one story extensions on the ground floor. All different in form and materialisation.Save this picture!Floor PlanBy literally stretching the house by (just) 2 meters, we could make two average sized children’s rooms on the first floor. And by doing that we created enough space on the ground floor to make a comfortable dinner room with kitchen.

Tucson, Ariz. — El dictamen del 25 de junio por el Tribunal Supremo confirmando la disposición “Muéstreme sus papeles” de la ley anti-inmigrante SB1070 de Arizona fue recibida inmediatamente con indignación y protesta en Phoenix y Tucson.En Phoenix, los/as manifestantes fueron a la oficina del racista sheriff Joe Arpaio y al Capitolio del Estado. En Tucson, los/as manifestantes se reunieron en una esquina de la intersección donde queda el edificio estatal y el tribunal federal donde se llevan a cabo las deportaciones en masa de la operación “Streamline”.Arizona está al frente del ataque antiinmigrante. Desde sus inicios como territorio robado de México, la historia de Arizona está plagada de racismo. La destrucción de barrios históricos— barrios latinos — allanó el camino para la expansión de las áreas metropolitanas de Phoenix y Tucson.Arizona fue uno de los últimos estados en promulgar un día festivo en honor al Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Fue sólo después de una masiva protesta pública, incluyendo un boicot del Estado y trasladando el Súper Bowl de 1993 fuera de Phoenix, lo que obligó a actuar a la legislatura. Hasta el día de hoy, el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Tucson está bajo un plan de abolición de la segregación racial ordenada por el Tribunal. Esta orden de abolición se impuso primero en 1978, 24 años después de que se prohibiera la segregación, como consecuencia de una demanda que exponía el tratamiento racista y la educación inferior que recibían los/as latinos/as.En respuesta a la sentencia del Tribunal Supremo, el Centro de Acción Internacional de Tucson emitió la siguiente declaración:“El anuncio del Tribunal Supremo confirmando la disposición ‘Muéstreme sus papeles’ de la SB1070, continúa el asalto contra los/as latinos/as y las comunidades de inmigrantes de Arizona. Esta decisión no es sólo la legalización del perfil racial, sino que es una luz verde para el racismo y resultará en el aumento de terror por la policía y por la patrulla fronteriza contra las comunidades de color.“Todas las personas que están luchando por sobrevivir bajo el peso de la crisis económica capitalista deberían tomar nota de esta decisión. La legalización del perfil racial por el Tribunal Supremo no va a resolver ninguno de los urgentes problemas sociales que demandan atención.No proporcionará empleo, ni cuidado de salud, ni educación para el pueblo. No arreglará las escuelas, las carreteras o las otras infraestructuras decrépitas. En su lugar, se perderá el dinero que podría ser invertido en estos servicios sociales vitales, criminalizando y encarcelando a personas que lo que están haciendo es tratando de sobrevivir.“La gobernadora de Arizona Jan Brewer y el notoriamente racista sheriff Joe Arpaio han estado salivando sobre esto, esperando la oportunidad de llenar las cárceles con fines de lucro de sus amigos corporativos. Arpaio no ha escondido su intención de establecer puestos de control y redadas masivas tan pronto como se anunciara la sentencia, y la gobernadora envió un vídeo de formación a cada agencia de orden público en el estado, preparándolos para hacer cumplir las disposiciones en cuanto el tribunal dictaminara.“No podemos quedarnos pasivamente y permitir que el estado aísle y aterrorice a porciones de nuestra comunidad. Debemos unirnos con quienes están bajo ataque y hace retroceder el asalto que está dirigido hacia TODAS las personas. La táctica de dividir a las personas por el color de su piel, religión, identidad sexual o si poseen documentos específicos o no, es sólo un intento de desviar la atención de los verdaderos delincuentes y el problema real: los bancos, las corporaciones y la máquina de guerra que roban más y más de la riqueza mundial mientras que continuamente enfrentan trabajadores/as contra trabajadores/as y grupo contra grupo.“Debemos unirnos y luchar contra todo lo que intente dividirnos. El racismo, el sexismo, la intolerancia anti-homosexual – todo esto tiene que desaparecer. Debemos seguir ampliando la lucha contra la guerra, el racismo y el imperialismo y luchar por puestos de trabajo, legalización de los/as indocumentados/as, y el cuidado de la salud y educación para todos/as. Así como vemos los acontecimientos en Paraguay, donde otro golpe antipopular ha ocurrido, es imperativo que también nuestra lucha sea global.“Ahora es un buen momento para recordar esto: la historia demuestra que lo que importa es lo que sucede en las calles—no en los tribunales ni en la Casa Blanca. Eso es lo que finalmente decidirá la suerte del pueblo.“Sí se puede. La lucha continúa”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
to go further News New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives RSF_en April 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Supreme court drops charges of “false statements” against anti-Chávez columnist The Venezuelan supreme court decided on 4 April to drop charges of “false statements” againstIbéyise Pacheco, a columnist and outspoken opponent of President Hugo Chávez’s government. The charges were brought by state prosecutor Didier Rojas in 2004 over a claim in her El Nacional column that a plot against Chávez opponents was planned in the presidential palace. The ruling was issued by Eladio Aponte Aponte, the supreme court judge in charge of the case, who found that the right of defence was not respected in earlier hearings.Reporters Without Borders welcomed the decision, given the current climate of tension and hostility between the government and the privately-owned news media, and said it could offer an opportunity to relaunch a dialogue in Venezuela about press rights.______________________________________________________________________23.03.06 – Release of two journalists offers chance for another look at controversial press laws Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the release of two journalists in the past few days, even if they are still awaiting trial, and suggested this was the right time to take another look at Venezuela’s press laws.Ibéyise Pacheco of the El Nacional daily was released from house arrest on 21 March, while Gustavo Azócar Alcalá, the presenter of the programme “Café con Azócar” on the Televisora del Táchira regional TV station and an El Universal correspondent, was released from a prison near San Cristóbal in the western state of Táchira on 22 March.“We hope these releases will help clear the air between the government and privately-owned news media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They should also offer the opportunity for both sides to undertake a concerted reexamination of the law on the social responsibility of the broadcast media and the criminal code reform law, which have provisions that violate press freedom.”The organisation added: “The need for this debate is underscored by the fact that the attorney-general has himself referred 25 of the new criminal code’s articles to the supreme court on the grounds of unconstitutionality.”An outspoken critic of President Hugo Chávez and his government, Pacheco was the target of two libel suits by Col. Angel Bellorín for claiming in her El Nacional column that he had used forged diplomas to become a lawyer. As a result of one of the lawsuits, she was initially given a nine-month prison sentence that was reduced on 15 March to house arrest with permission to continue working. Finally, the house arrest was lifted on 21 March.In the other case, she acknowledged to the plaintiff that she was wrong. Under article 492 of the criminal code, punishment is annulled when the plaintiff forgives the offence. Pacheco said the lawsuit was dropped after an arrangement was reached between the two sides.But Pacheco still faces prosecution on a charge of “false statements” brought by state prosecutor Didier Rojas over a claim in her “En Privado” column in El Nacional on 9 May 2003 that the kidnapping and execution of Chávez opponents had been planned in the presidential palace. She appeared before a Caracas court on 14 January on this charge and the case is still pending.Azócar has been charged with fraud and embezzling public funds as a result of a complaint brought by Táchira state governor Ronald Blanco La Cruz. On 7 March, a San Cristóbal judge ordered that he should be held in the nearby prison of Santa Ana until the investigation was completed. But his lawyers appealed and, in special hearing on 22 March, the judge reversed his decision and ordered Azócar’s release.Despite these encouraging developments, the law on the social responsibility of the broadcast media that was adopted on 24 November 2004 and the criminal code reform that took effect on 16 March 2005 (see our previous releases) continue to be a source of great tension between the government and privately-owned press. On 21 March, the head of the TV station Globovisión, Federico Ravell, asked the supreme court to quash the social responsibility law on the grounds that it “favours self-censorship.”The supreme court was already asked to overturn parts of the criminal code reform on 22 November in a petition from within the government, namely attorney-general Isaías Rodríguez. At the time of its adoption, Rodríguez said he found some of its provisions to be “excessively punitive.” In his petition, he asked the court to overturn 25 of the new criminal code’s 546 articles on the grounds of unconstitutionality, especially those concerning the crime of “insult.” The court has so far agreed to modify the form of these articles but has not yet ruled on their substance.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The House of Representatives on Sunday passed the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act (HEROES Act). The $3 trillion legislation was approved by a vote of 208-199. A summary by the American Action Forum states the HEROES Act would provide around $200 billion in additional housing assistance. The CARES Act provided financial and legal assistance for renters and mortgage holders with a federally-backed mortgage. The American Action Forum said the HEROES act expands the financial assistant and legal protection to “virtually all” renters and mortgage holders, including prohibiting foreclosure for non-payment for up to a year The proposed legislation would provide $75 billion to state housing agencies for them to make available to homeowners for assistance with mortgage payments, property taxes and insurance, utilities, and other costs. Also, mortgage holders would receive protections against forbearance for a period of 12 months, and forbearance would automatically be provided for up to 60 days for any borrower who fails to make a payment for 60 days. The American Action Forum states that, if requested by the borrowers, forbearance must be extended for up to one year. Among the provisions brought on by the CARES Act was mortgage forbearance plans by federal agencies. Black Knight’s latest numbers report nearly 9% of all mortgage loans are in forbearance as of May 15. This represents 4.7 million homeowners, which is up from 4.5 million loans from the prior week. The latest numbers have been enhanced to include loans that were in forbearance but not previously reported as “COVID-19-related.”About 7% of mortgage loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now in forbearance, while 12.4% of FHA and VA-backed loans are in forbearance. Just over 9% of the portfolio and privately securitized loans are also in forbearance.In terms of loan numbers, that’s 27.9 million GSE loans, 12.1 million FHA and VA loans, and 13 million other mortgage loans.In total dollar amount across all loan types, the total unpaid principal balance on loans in forbearance is $1 trillion.
