The Sydney-based clients approached Modscape after working alongside local architects, Fox Johnston, who developed a clear design brief fit for the growing family. Key to the clients’ brief was to provide a home that matched their lifestyle through better connections between indoor and outdoor spaces and to enhance the use of natural light, encouraging improved passive heating and cooling.Save this picture!© John MaddenSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© John MaddenDirected by the architect’s concept, the Modscape team refined the design while honouring the architect’s design intent. The resulting design beautifully complements the existing elements of the site, connecting the front and rear garden through the house and optimising the connection between indoor and outdoor.Save this picture!© John MaddenTaking cues from the original dwelling, the new home works to a similar footprint and incorporates the existing sandstone plinth into the landscape design, anchoring the building into the site.Save this picture!© John MaddenVarious living spaces on the ground floor provide ample alternate uses for the whole family. Visual integration and surveillance are maintained between kitchen, living, dining, outdoor and detached rumpus + study, creating an inclusive living environment. And with easy access to the beach there’s no need for a pool.  Instead the backyard acts as an extension of the indoor living spaces which smoothly transition into the outdoor thanks to large expanses of glass. An efficient layout upstairs comfortably sees five bedrooms and two bathrooms possessing plenty of space for adults and children alike.Save this picture!© John MaddenDesigned to capture sunlight in winter and exclude it from heating up in summer, the house incorporates moveable timber battened screens which not only help to soften the form by adding layers and texture to the façade, but aid in preventing solar heat gain by giving control to the occupants. Highlight windows and skylights used throughout the home maximise light and aid in natural cross ventilation to ensure the home is as comfortable as it is bright.Save this picture!© John MaddenInternally a light material palette with accents of timber contrasts the dark exterior. As soon as you walk in the front door, you’re welcomed by a generous double-height foyer featuring a staircase that reflects the timber battens used externally. In the living room, timber extends up the wall and across the ceiling to help to subtly define the space and beautifully complement the oak flooring.Save this picture!© John MaddenOpting for quality materials that will withstand heavy use from the children rather than ‘showy’ finishes ensure the result is a design that is durable and humble yet elegant and timeless. “COPY” Project Tamarama / Modscape + Fox JohnstonSave this projectSaveProject Tamarama / Modscape + Fox Johnston Project Tamarama / Modscape + Fox Johnston Architects: Fox Johnston, Modscape Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Projects 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/912464/project-tamarama-modscape-plus-fox-johnston Clipboard Australia Area:  337 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Project gallerySee allShow lessU-CUBE Office Reconstruction / Lacime ArchitectsSelected ProjectsNoa House / Alventosa Morell ArquitectesSelected Projects Share Photographs Photographs:  John Madden Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/912464/project-tamarama-modscape-plus-fox-johnston Clipboard Save this picture!© John Madden+ 26Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyAbout this officeFox JohnstonOfficeFollowModscapeOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityTamaramaAustraliaPublished on March 04, 2019Cite: “Project Tamarama / Modscape + Fox Johnston” 03 Mar 2019.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. What do you do if a major donor doesn’t deliver on promised donations? In the Royal Opera House’s case, they have set a 60-day deadline to pay up.The donor, Alberto Vilar, agreed in September 1999 to donate £10 million to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. Part of the agreement was that the newly converted buildings of the Covent Garden extension would be named the Vilar Floral Hall.However, the Cuban-born businessman currently faces fraud charges in the USA, and his donations have reportedly stopped. The board of the Royal Opera House yesterday gave Vilar 60 days to pay up, after “consistently” failing to meet deadlines set to pay. If he doesn’t pay by this deadline then the parties’ agreement will be terminated. It is not clear if this will involve the removal of Vilar’s name from the Floral Hall.

Co-ops and Ag Retailers Face Economic Challenges

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 28, 2016 SHARE Facebook Twitter Farm supply co-ops and other ag retailers are seeing their accounts receivable balances on the rise and are facing challenges as a result. A new report out from Cobank says retailers are having to adjust to tougher financial conditions because of the current ag commodity cycle. This is a direct result of low commodity prices that have knocked down farm incomes and tightened up on-farm cash flows. The ag industry has seen a downturn in fertilizer prices as well as mergers in the seed and fertilizer industries. “The drop in farm income over the past three seasons is the biggest we’ve seen since the Great Depression,” said Tyler Ehmke, a Cobank senior economist. He said accounts receivable balances at ag retailers across the country have jumped 11 percent this year and will likely go higher as farmers continue to struggle with their cash flow balances.Fertilizers usually account for half the revenue stream for ag retailers, but those prices are falling as well, making it difficult to maintain positive margins.Source: NAFB News Service Co-ops and Ag Retailers Face Economic Challenges Home Indiana Agriculture News Co-ops and Ag Retailers Face Economic Challenges Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleEating Meat Makes You Human Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

In tougher line, authorities close two newspapers while keeping journalist in prison

Reporters Without Borders condemns these arbitrary acts of censorship and calls on the authorities to keep their promises to respect press freedom.

Editor Sami Ghaleb told the daily Yemen Times the closure was a “major aggression” and discriminatory as many other newspapers came out irregularly in Yemen.It seems the real reason for its closures was the fact that the first issue tackled sensitive subjects such as the international campaign for Al-Khaiwani’s release and the splits between the different wings of the ruling General people’s congress (GPC).A few days earlier, the information ministry suspended the licence of the daily Al Hurriye (“Freedom,” in Arabic) for an indefinite period on the official grounds that it had changed its logo without permission. Editor Akram Abdulkareem Sabra told Reporters Without Borders the newspaper wanted to change its format and logo to mark its 25th anniversary. “We were amazed and outraged by this totally disproportionate decision, which was just a pretext for punishing the newspaper,” he said.Meanwhile, Al-Khaiwani’s newspaper, Al-Shoura (photo), was suspended for six months when Al-Khaiwani was sentenced to a year in prison on 5 September for allegedly libelling President Saleh.

Radio stations getting back on the air in Port-au-Prince

But thanks to the help of foreign technicians and news media, including Radio France, a total of 20 stations are now operating, a week after the quake. They include Vision 2000, Radio Lumière, Radio Solidarité, Mélodie FM, Radio One and Radio Boukman, which is based in Cité-Soleil, the capital’s biggest slum. The UN mission’s station, Radio Minustah, was back on the air on 18 January.The same is unfortunately not the case with Radio TV Ginen, Radio Soleil, Radio Ibo and Tropic FM, and many other small community radio stations, all totally destroyed. Radio Nationale, the state radio station, is broadcasting via its sister TV station.The Agence France-Presse office was destroyed but the agency has resumed operating from new rented premises. The premises of the capital’s two leading newspapers, Le Nouvelliste and Le Matin, were spared by the quake. But for the time being they are unable to print and the staff are not working. Le Nouvelliste has nonetheless been posting some reports on its website.We have been told that the premises of the 12 radio stations based in the southwestern town of Petit-Goâve were not destroyed but equipment was badly damaged. Some are broadcasting. In Léogâne, a town nearer to the capital, five of the nine stations are able to broadcast although 85 per cent of the buildings were destroyed or badly damaged.(Photo : AFP) News Help by sharing this information Another journalist murdered in Haiti News HaïtiAmericas center_img Organisation News Receive email alerts June 11, 2019 Find out more News January 20, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio stations getting back on the air in Port-au-Prince RSF_en Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haitilast_img read more

Buried deep within legislation is a provision for Local Authorities to increase the property tax by 15 per cent. They can do that by the end of 2014.They can also reduce it by 15 per cent, but that will never happen”.The candidate said that legislation enacted in 2012 “sets in stone the Government’s entitlement to increase a tax the people simply cannot afford. Yet the booklet every householder in Ireland received by post suggests otherwise”.“It reads: ‘The market value of your property on the 1st May 2013 will form the basis for calculating the property tax for 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.’ Ordinary people assume their property tax will remain the same until 2016”.He said that the Government “is banking on the fact the majority of ordinary people reading this booklet do not understand it. This is an underhand clause, typical of the Government that framed and legislated for it”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up last_img read more
