A simple, economical, and small (1,440 sq.ft.) one bedroom retirement home in the country for two city dwellers, Gary, and Carol Ridge, reflects the aspirations of out of the box thinkers who wanted something decidedly different in a retirement home. Gary is a retired construction superintendent, so he literally built most of it by hand, right down to the cabinets, with some locally hired helpers. Carol is a retired administrator from the McMaster University Family Health Department, and we previously worked with her on a clinic design. They purchased a wooded lot overlooking the Consecon Canal along the Loyalist Parkway in the northwest corner of popular Prince Edward County.Save this picture!© INDUSTRYOUS PhotographyThere is one bedroom, one bath and two dens for their many busy hobbies (he’s into stamps, history, and wine, while she’s into quilting, reading, etc.). A central living/dining/kitchen space is the heart of the house, with large windows to both the north and south for generous light and views of the canal in front and woods behind. The house is a simple, economical wood frame box, with sloping faces to make the forms dynamic.Save this picture!SketchesThe simple and economical black corrugated metal cladding on the house, juxtaposed against the plain galvanized corrugated cladding for the studio tower. The black siding allows the house to fade back into the woods as moose and bear do, instead of being too prominent. Accent metal trims add depth and are painted with bright, high gloss automotive paint in homage to the Owners’ obsession with 1970s muscle cars. The Ridges actually went out and bought an orange car to match the house!Save this picture!© INDUSTRYOUS PhotographyThe house is raised and floats on piers over the lower part of the site that floods each spring, allowing for water views of the canal out front. There is a bridge walkway to the front door and much of the front lawn is a lavender garden. A separate garage/workshop (lime green accents) and a separate ‘Haven’ outdoor porch/living room (purple accents) are attached to a two-story shared Studio space (raw galvalume) for their art projects.Save this picture!© INDUSTRYOUS PhotographyThe buildings are grouped to create a courtyard, inspired by traditional European farms, in order to create a sense of place on the site. The interiors are simple, clean and crisply detailed. A 3-dimensional wood accent wall in the living room provides hidden storage for electronics and media. The cantilevered island mimics the exterior house concept. Simple, inexpensive materials and a compact box, all brought to life by thoughtful design strategies to subvert the norm, make this not your typical retirement dwelling.Save this picture!© INDUSTRYOUS PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessHumble House / Coy Yiontis ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBlock 41 / Graham Baba ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeThier+Curran ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesQuinte WestCanadaPublished on October 31, 2018Cite: “Ridge Residence / Thier+Curran Architects” 31 Oct 2018.

In the rugged countryside of southern Sicily, Villa Belluccelli is perched atop a high hill. The villa is designed as a white orthogonal shape, seemingly in contrast with the rolling green hills with olive groves and organic agriculture. By opening and closing in different directions the villa plays with the spectators’ gaze, framing the landscape, emphasizing it’s beauty even more. Villa Belluccelli is designed as a traditional Sicilian country house translated into contemporary architecture.Save this picture!© Katja EfftingBy taking into account the tough climate, the trajectory of the sun, and the prevailing wind direction and combining it with the beauty of the landscape and earthquake-proof building, we were able to design a villa with a very transparent and open character, highly unusual in the Sicilian landscape. As a studio, we focus emphatically on the human scale: from the design of the landscape to the articulation of the building, from the spaciousness of the interior to the smallest detail of the material.Save this picture!© Katja EfftingSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Katja EfftingWe meticulously created a sequence of places: a place to sit in the calm of the morning looking at the sunrise, a place to gather with the whole family for lunch in the coolness of the shade and wind, a place to contemplate under the protection of a hundred-year-old olive tree, a place to drink a glass of wine at the end of the day with friends overlooking the valley towards Rosolini. The villa shows itself as a simple single-story volume, but consists of three layers: a basement, a ground floor, and a roof terrace. The white frame floats slightly above the ground and on the south side rests on a long wall of lava stone. On the ground floor, the living room with an open kitchen, a bathroom, and two bedrooms are situated. The living area inside continues on the spacious verandas on either side of the villa. A patio connects the verandas to the central living area and the guest quarter with a bedroom and private bathroom.Save this picture!© Katja EfftingSave this picture!© Katja EfftingAn external staircase leads from the western veranda to the basement with additional bedrooms, bathroom, utility room, and storage. From the eastern veranda, a staircase alongside the tower takes you to the roof terrace with great views of the surrounding landscape. PV panels and solar water heaters are also located here for the generation of sustainable energy and hot water. On the ground floor of the tower, there is a study with a view of the valley. On top of the tower, there is a platform for a spectacular panoramic view, but also for sleeping in the open air, with a view of the night sky.Save this picture!© Katja EfftingConcrete stairs lead from the verandas to the various terraces in the garden, which are made of polished concrete. The swimming pool is located on the west side and is made entirely of in-situ concrete, of which the rough formwork is clearly visible. Due to the sloping terrain, the swimming pool protrudes from the hill, showing the landscape while you swim.Save this picture!© Katja EfftingProject gallerySee allShow lessTienda Breathe / MasquespacioSelected ProjectsRights & Brands Stockholm / Anders Berensson ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Noto, Italy Photographs:  Katja Effting Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project center_img Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/951314/villa-belluccelli-studio-nuy-van-noort Clipboard 2019 Italy Architects: Studio Nuy van Noort Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Katja Effting+ 17Curated by Paula Pintos Share Year:  Projects CopyAbout this officeStudio Nuy van NoortOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNotoOn FacebookItalyPublished on November 18, 2020Cite: “Villa Belluccelli / Studio Nuy van Noort” 18 Nov 2020.

Sector to see 60,000 job losses & large-scale cuts in service provision without more support

first_img Melanie May | 19 August 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The coronavirus crisis will cost the sector 60,000 jobs while more than half of charities expect to cut back services, according to the latest Charity Sector Tracker.The research, from Pro Bono Economics in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Fundraising and Charity Finance Group, saw 455 charities surveyed. It found that 19% of these have already made redundancies, with 23% planning to make further cutbacks once the government’s furlough scheme ends. That number jumps to 44% among the UK’s largest charities, and nearly one-in-ten (8%) of large charities anticipate reducing their headcount by 25-50%, compared to 4% of medium-size charities and 2% of small.Speaking on the experiences of Blood Cancer UK, its Chief Executive Gemma Peters, said:“Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on Blood Cancer UK’s finances. Our income has dropped by £6 million and despite extensively cutting operational costs and furloughing 40% of our staff, we have had no choice but to propose a reduction in the number of people we employ by 25%. This is essential to continue investing in research and supporting our community.“It’s clear that we’ll lose a significant number of brilliant, dedicated, people. Even with these measures, we’ll have £1.8 million less to spend on research this year, which means we’ll be able to do less for people with blood cancer in the short term. It is a gut-wrenching situation but it’s what we have to do to be strong for the long haul.”With 5,400 job losses already been announced in the charity sector since the start of the pandemic, Pro Bono Economics estimates from its Tracker that the true figure may be closer to 25,600 and that another 34,100 charities sector employees may have lost their jobs by the end of the year.68% of charities also expect demand for their support to rise in the next six months, but 58% say they are likely to have to reduce the services they offer over the same period.Among small charities, 54% think it is quite or very likely that they will have to scale back service delivery compared to pre-crisis plans, as a result of financial pressures created by Covid-19. This rises to 57% of medium-sized charities, and 68% of large charities.This pressure is expected to last into 2022, with 70% of the charities surveyed expecting it to take more than 12 months for their income to return to pre-crisis levels and 26% overall thinking the climb back will take more than two years. In fact, 40% of large charities think it will take this long, compared to 27% of medium, and 18% of small organisations.Matt Whittaker, CEO of Pro Bono Economics, said: Advertisement  636 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3center_img Sector to see 60,000 job losses & large-scale cuts in service provision without more support Tagged with: COVID-19 Finance research “Charities have been under extraordinary pressure since the start of the pandemic. To date they have responded with typical resilience and invention, but the coming months look set to prove tougher still.“With the recession biting and unemployment rising, the social sector has never been more needed. But an alarming proportion of jobs in the sector are now at risk. That means many of the charity workers who have provided vital support to millions across the country since the start of the Covid crisis are facing a very uncertain future.”“Navigating this period rests in part on getting more resources into the sector, from government, from existing funders and from members of the public. But it also rests on reversing the public policy neglect the sector has suffered from over many years. That’s particularly true if civil society is to play the pivotal role that it should do in the country’s recovery from the pandemic, helping to fulfil the Prime Minister’s pledge to ‘build back better’.”Caron Bradshaw, Chief Executive of Charity Finance Group, added:“Charitable activities and organisations are the glue that keeps communities together and a bridge between the sectors. They want to play their part in the recovery but every day society is closer to losing huge capacity at the heart of our communities.“The scale of job losses in the charity sector means less capacity to help people survive loss, hunger, unemployment. Charities are vital to help society through the crisis of Covid and will be essential to the effort to rebuild as we go through a deep-rooted recession and a potential second wave.“These results should ring an alarm bell for Government that without action there is worse to come.”  635 total views,  2 views todaylast_img read more

[COVID19 Suo Motu Case]’During National Crisis Supreme Court Can’t Be A Mute Spectator, Our Intention Is Not To Interdict High Courts’: SC

first_imgTop Stories[COVID19 Suo Motu Case]’During National Crisis Supreme Court Can’t Be A Mute Spectator, Our Intention Is Not To Interdict High Courts’: SC Srishti Ojha27 April 2021 1:01 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court on Tuesday clarified that the objective of suo moto proceedings taken up by it on COVID issues is not to supplant the High Courts or to take over from High Courts what they are doing.
”The object of these proceedings are not to supplant the High Courts or to take over from High Courts what they are doing. High Courts are in a better position to monitor what is going on within their territorial boundaries.” Justice Chandrachud-led bench clarified.
”During national crisis, Supreme Court cannot be a mute spectator. The role of the Supreme Court is complimentary in nature. The issues which travails state boundaries is what this court will look into and thus Article 32 jurisdiction has been assumed”, said the CourtThe observation was made by a bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, L Nageswara Rao and S Ravindra Bhat while hearing the suo-moto case taken by it in relation to supply of Oxygen, medicines, vaccines to fight COVID19.
The Supreme Court has clarified that the purpose of the top Court court assuming jurisdiction suo moto under Article 32 is not to supplant or substitute the process of hearings undertaken by various High Courts to deal with issues related to pandemic.
”High Courts are best situated to make an assessment of ground realities in each states and find flexible solutions for the problems faced by citizens.Therefore, we see no reason or justification to interdict the High Courts”, the Bench has said.
Having said that, the Bench further observed that there is still a need for Supreme Court to intervene on certain national issues, as there might be issues relating to coordination between states.
The Bench added that the intervention of the Supreme Court must be understood in the correct perspective. There are some issues which transcend the regional boundaries.
”At a time of national crisis, the Supreme Court cannot be a mute spectator” the bench observed.
The Bench clarified that the Supreme Court is playing a complementary role to the High Courts, and if they have any difficulty in dealing with an issue due to territorial limitations, the top Court will help.
”It is in that spirit that the Supreme Court has assumed jurisdiction suo moto under Article 32. Therefore, we clarify that the High Courts need not be restrained from dealing with the issues.” the Bench observed.
A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, L Nageswara Rao and S Ravindra Bhat was considering the suo moto case In Re Distribution of Essential Supplies and Services During COVID.The bench has called for a report from the Central Government on issues related to supply of oxygen, essential drugs, vaccine pricing. The matter will be next considered on April 30.At least 11 High Courts in the country are dealing with issues related to COVID management in their respective jurisdiction.BackgroundIt was on April 23 that a bench led by the then CJI SA Bobde decided to take this suo moto case. The bench had observed the orders passed by various High Courts on COVID related issues “may have the effect of accelerating and prioritising the services to a certain set of people and slowing down the availability of these resources to certain other groups whether the groups are local, regional or otherwise”.The bench then issued notices to the Centre, State Government, UTs and parties before the High Courts to show-cause why the Supreme Court should not pass a uniform order is issues such as supply of medical oxygen, supply of essential drugs, supply of vaccines and declaration of lockdown.This came under widespread criticism from the legal community, as it was apprehended that the Supreme Court was trying to take over the cases from the High Courts, which were passing urgent orders to deal with these issues within their jurisdictions.Many senior lawyers also criticized the decision of the bench to appoint Senior Advocate Harish Salve as an amicus in the matter, instead of seeking the assistance of the Attorney General for India. It was also pointed out that Salve may not be not in a position to understand the present problems in India as he was a resident of London.The Supreme Court Bar Association filed an application in the case saying that the High Courts should be allowed to hear the cases, as they are best suited to deal with the local issues.The next day, Salve requested the bench to relieve him as an amicus in the case, saying he was disturbed by the criticism. He said that he did not want the case to be heard under a shadow that his appointment was based on his long friendship with CJI Bobde from school days.The bench expressed displeasure at the criticism by the senior lawyers and asserted that there was no intention to stall the High Courts from proceeding with the case.The bench said that the criticism was based on baseless perceptions as there was nothing in the order which stopped High Courts from dealing with the issues.Click Hear To Download/Read OrderTagsSupreme Court Suo Moto Case Supply Of Oxygen And Medicines Justice DY Chandrachud #Justice L Nageswara Rao Justice S Ravindra Bhat Next Storylast_img read more
