Initial situation / concept idea. The house for a family of four was built in a Brandenburg village on the outskirts of Berlin. The narrow and elongated plot of land, which is situated next to a typical pine forest, had a significant influence on the planning. We used the advantages of the property and developed the principle of “living-through” together with the owners. Thus, the main rooms are equally oriented towards the forest in the north and towards a cobbled avenue on the south side. The architectural context of the surrounding settlement structure with gable roof houses from the post-war period had to be taken into account, without compromising on the contemporary design of the building. Save this picture!© Klemens RennerSave this picture!© Klemens RennerThe large two-storey residential building is supplemented by a smaller shed, which includes a carport and storage areas. The two structures are based on the same primary form. The placement of the buildings on the property defines three outdoor areas. To the south is the open entrance area with car and bicycle parking spaces. Behind the house, and in front of the neighboring pine forest, there is a quiet garden with a fruit tree and a fireplace. Due to the small width of the house, we could activate a third open space along the long wall of the living area.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionConstruction and materials. The house was designed as a hybrid construction. This construction method in timber and solid construction has many advantages in terms of building physics and design. The massive ground floor with a middle wall that reaches up to the roof ridge brings a climatic inertia into the building and allows the light attic, which sits like a “wooden box” on top of the concrete ground floor.  The monolithic exterior walls are plastered inside and outside. The vertical grooved structure of the exterior plaster is based on the vertical wooden planking of the upper floor. The walls and the roof of the upper floor were planned in a timber frame construction. Inside the rooms are horizontally planked with white pine planks. The outer skin of the walls is clad with carbonized pine boards.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerFor the facade we used an old Japanese wood treatment technique. It was purposefully flamed and charred, whereby the wood structure remains visible. This charred wood surface not only provides ecological protection against the weather, its glossy surface makes it a unique sight, as it creates impressive effects depending on the light situation. The shades range from deep black to silver, bluish or golden tones.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerFloor plan structure. The interior of the building is structured by a continuous central wall. This two-storey wall divides the building into common rooms and development rooms and is therefore asymmetrical in the building width. In terms of construction, this wall made of fair-faced concrete also becomes a support for the ridge, so that the inner building structure also shapes the outer shell. We designed the living, cooking and dining area as a central, 15-metre-long and 4-metre-wide main room. The bright dining area faces south. The cooking area is centrally located on the side wall. The living area is lowered to mark it as a protected place and to establish contact with the adjacent forest.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerSave this picture!© Klemens RennerThe main entrance to the house is in a niche. A hallway with a straight concrete staircase mediates between the ground floor and upper floor. A possible division of the house into two independent units has already been considered. Interiors. The central wall and the ceiling are kept visible in concrete and the entire floors are sealed with heated screed in concrete look, thus creating a clear and uniform surface materiality. The staircase was prefabricated in a concrete factory and thus has a fine, smooth concrete surface.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerOn the outside the detached house in Schulzendorf is a black solitaire, but the interiors are bright, the walls on the upper floor are covered with white glazed wood. The black accessories – like the switches and door handles – form a harmonious contrast. Together with our clients we designed and executed a DIY stair railing. A free pattern is woven or stretched into a pre-installed black steel frame with a rope. The stair railing on the exposed concrete is constructed from oiled black steel tubing with a square cross-section. The walls in the showers are tiled with round mosaics – concrete grey on the ground floor and bright yellow on the upper floor. The fittings are coated in black.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerSave this picture!© Klemens RennerEnergy supply. The heating system is based on a deep probe heat pump and thus provides an energy concept that is as self-sufficient as possible in addition to the stove.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerPlanning process. Particularly noteworthy with regard to the planning and implementation of the house was the constructive cooperation in a team of all project participants, supported by the commitment of the design-conscious clients.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerFirst, we carried out a site analysis using sketches and models to determine the advantages and disadvantages and to investigate the relationship to the neighboring development, sunlight, forest and access road. We examined the division of the rooms in variants with the help of an architectural model. During the design work and detailed planning, the focus lay on the archetypal and reduced appearance of the building including all materials and objects. We accompanied the building process through all construction phases from the shell to the interior fittings.Save this picture!© Klemens RennerProject gallerySee allShow lessAirHelp Berlin Headquarters / Fréderic Fourrichon Architecture + Alejandra Albarrán …Selected ProjectsThe Contemporary Approach to Rebuilding Cities Post-Disaster: The Case of BeirutArticles Share Photographs:  Klemens Renner Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Architects: Transstruktura Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers: JUNG, Durach, FSB, Velfac, Vola, Mocopinus Projects Year:  Germany “COPY” CopyAbout this officeTransstrukturaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSchulzendorfGermanyPublished on January 20, 2021Cite: “Schulzendorf House / Transstruktura” 20 Jan 2021.

Deyda Hydara : the murder of a journalist under surveillance

first_img News In its second report on the murder of Gambian journalist Deyda Hydara, released today, Reporters Without Borders has contributed an important new element to the investigation, namely that Hydara was being watched by the intelligence services until a few minutes before he was shot dead on 16 December 2004 in Banjul.Five months to the day after the deadly ambush, Reporters Without Borders again urged President Yahya Jammeh to give the police the means to carry out a credible investigation. The report’s conclusions call on Jammeh to “officially request the intervention of a neutral, independent and professional third party” and suggest that he should “turn to the British or US authorities for police assistance.”The co-founder and editor of the independent newspaper The Point and correspondent of Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Reporters Without Borders, Hydara was gunned down behind the wheel of his car as he was driving two employees home late at night.As it issued its report, entitled “Murder of a journalist under surveillance,” Reporters Without Borders argued that his death is not just a Gambian issue since it sent a terrifying signal to all African journalists, who immediately reacted by expressing their shock and solidarity.”For this reason, we do not understand why the African Union – which made Banjul the headquarters of its African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) – has still not condemned the murder of Gambia’s leading journalist and did not even mention him in the final statement of its 37th ordinary session on 11 May,” the organization said.It added: “The ACHPR has thereby demonstrated that it is either subject to unacceptable influence from the host government or extremely remote from the concerns of the African peoples.”On the basis of statements received from witnesses during its fact-finding visit to Banjul and Dakar from 25 April to 4 May, Reporters Without Borders concluded that: “Hydara was subjected to harassment and surveillance by the Gambian intelligence services.” The report also found that: “The harsh new press legislation and the strategic question of the ailing groundnut sector were the dominant themes of his final articles. He was murdered by professionals in a premeditated ambush in which, for still unexplained reasons, the security forces present in the area failed in their duty to protect and intervene.”This second fact-finding mission was prompted by the fact that the official investigation, conducted initially by the police and then by the intelligence services, has yielded no results and is “trapped in its own absurd hypotheses.” Reporters Without Borders said it was amazed that “investigators have not considered the possibility that the murder was politically-motivated, although it seems the most probable hypothesis.” Gambia still needs to address challenges to press freedom GambiaAfrica July 23, 2019 Find out more RSF_en Receive email alerts Related documents RSF_-_Deyda_Hydara_report_-_May_2005.pdfPDF – 905.75 KB In its second report on the murder of Gambian journalist Deyda Hydara, released today, Reporters Without Borders has contributed an important new element to the investigation, namely that Hydara was being watched by the intelligence services until a few minutes before he was shot dead on 16 December 2004 in Banjul.

Slain Utah police officer Joseph Shinners mourned by police departments across US

first_imgProvo Police(PROVO, Utah) — Police departments across the country are offering an outpouring of support after a young Provo, Utah, police officer was gunned down in the line of duty.Officer Joseph Shinners, 29, was shot in the nearby town of Orem trying to apprehend a fugitive Saturday night, authorities said.Shinners, who was on the job for three years, is survived by his wife and 1-year-old son, Provo Police Chief Richard Ferguson said.“As chief of police, I’m furious,” Ferguson told reporters Sunday. “I’m heartbroken.

Death toll climbs to 17 as wildfires burn millions of acres across West Coast

first_imgDaveAlan/iStockBY: JULIA JACOBO AND WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(SAN FRANCISCO) — At least 17 people in Oregon, California and Washington have now died because of the devastating wildfires ravaging the West Coast, and the destruction is anticipated to worsen, according to Oregon Gov. Kate Brown.There were dozens of active fires, with nearly 900,000 acres burned in the state as of early Thursday afternoon, according to the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. Those wildfires have scorched about 500 square miles since Monday.Tens of thousands of residents have been evacuated, and the fires have destroyed thousands of structures, according to authorities.“Over the last 24 hours, Oregon has experienced unprecedented fires, with devastating consequences across the state,” Brown said in a statement Thursday. “Our number-one priority right now is saving lives. This could be the greatest loss of human lives and property due to wildfires in our state’s history.”The death toll rose sharply on Thursday evening as the Butte County, California, sheriff announced seven more deaths from the North Complex Fire — formerly known as the Bear Fire. There was also an additional death reported from the Slater Fire in Siskiyou County, California.Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea also said 16 people remain unaccounted for.So far at least four deaths have been reported in Oregon — two in Marion County in the Santiam Fire and two in the town of Medford in the Almeda Fire.The Almeda Fire, in Jackson County in the southern part of the state, has devastated the towns of Phoenix and Talent, where hundreds of homes and businesses are destroyed. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said more deaths are expected.Jackson County Sheriff Nate Sickler said a criminal investigation has been launched to determine the origin point of the Almeda Fire, where human remains were found.Many of the fires in Oregon are still 0% contained, including the Beachie Creek and Riverside fires, which have burned more than 182,000 and 112,000 acres, respectively.Other major fires include the Lionhead Fire, which is more than 109,000 acres and is 5% contained, and the Archie Creek Fire that has burned 68,000 acres and is only 1% contained.In Clackamas County, Oregon, four fires have forced thousands to evacuate. The blazes there have destroyed 230 structures, including at least 16 homes, with another 600 threatened. The entire county is under some type of evacuation order.The destruction has led Oregon lawmakers to plead with President Donald Trump to approve emergency disaster funding to aid the state’s battle with the wildfires.“It is imperative that the federal government support these local communities with the resources they need. … Given the severity and speed with which these fires are spreading across my district, I urge you to expedite the declaration process to ensure that Oregonians have the resources they need to respond to and recover quickly from these devastating wildfires,” Rep. Peter DeFazio, along with other Oregon lawmakers, wrote in a letter to Trump.His thoughts were echoed by Sen. Jeff Merkley.“The number and scale of fires burning in Oregon is unprecedented, and Oregonians who are suffering need immediate relief,” the senator tweeted. “I’m leading the congressional delegation in pushing for the federal assistance that we need to manage and recover from this crisis.”Air quality alerts remain in effect from Washington to central California due to all the smoke from the wildfires.South of Oregon, the Golden State’s sky is eerily orange and red as fire personnel battle more than two dozen massive blazes.Cal Fire said Thursday evening that 2.6 million acres have burned across the state currently.The North Complex Fire — a joining of the previously named Bear Fire and Claremont Fire — had grown to over 247,000 acres with zero percent containment Thursday evening, according to Cal Fire.Thirty-seven fires had emerged since Wednesday alone and more than 14,000 firefighters are engaged across the state.The Creek Fire in Fresno County has consumed more than 175,000 acres and is still 0% contained. It’s forced more than 45,000 people to evacuate and has destroyed at least 365 structures, including 60 residences.Elsewhere in California, the Slater Fire has destroyed more than 150 homes and caused at least two deaths. It is currently 120,000 acres. The Valley Fire is over 17,000 acres and about 35% contained.Six of the top 20 largest wildfires in California history have occurred this year.California Gov. Gavin Newsom said the viral images of an orange sky in San Francisco and other parts of the state are a “cry out for change.” He said to help prevent future wildfires all levels of government must step up to fight climate change.“CA has invested more in wildfire prevention than any time in our history. Enacted bold climate policies. But it’s not enough,” the governor tweeted. “We must do more. We need action at EVERY level. CA cannot do this alone. Climate change is REAL. So please — VOTE.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
