This is about a weekend house, located on a 5,000 sqm lot in the Hacienda los Aromos, nearby Limache, (middle-west Chile). Program and overall Budget required from us that every architectural decision were same effective and efficient.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThe house itself is a 4 winged volume that clearly spreads the program inside, but still keeps the coherence and totality of a single body. Besides meeting the interior requirement, we thought that the house should act as an object on the landscape, defining certain territorial order, giving hints of four definite areas outside: entrance, service, principal and children.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe volume is placed on a flat spot at the upper part of a gentle slope, so that the 3,40m interior height turns into a lofty space once the slope increases and therefore foundations get lower. It is mainly east-north oriented so it gets the best sun exposure at the same time that it turns back from south-west in order to protect from afternoon’s heavy winds and sun radiation. In order to keep the footprint geometry as simple as possible, we decided to alternate blind walls and openings (rather than punched windows) that relate both to the immediate context and distant views.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThe main structure is 2×4” pine lumber in addition to some steel reinforcements made out of standard tubes that help preventing wood deformations. We designed a 4 meter wide bay, which allowed us to roof the whole structure using just commercial standard 2×8” pine lumber joists. All floors in the house, including baths and kitchen, are white stained in-place-polished concrete. No additional pavements where needed, since we privileged a low maintenance surface and more integrated spaces. Interior and exterior wall cladding are made out of stained pine 1×8” and 1×6”.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Felipe FontecillaSave this picture!SectionChildren bedroom is a common space, with bunk beds all along its back wall. Right above it, there is a flexible lofty space that can be alternatively used as family room, studio or guests dormitory. Pantry, storage and service are integrated into the kitchen area, divided by a 2m height drywall. This solves all domestic necessities without sacrificing natural lighting and spatiality.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaThe luxury or category in this house was given not necessarily by using expensive features, but by the use of a reduced palette of natural materials rather than industrial products. We also invested in quality space: overall interior height, integrated rooms, and the contrast between immediate surrounding and distant views towards the geographical context.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Best Architecture Drawings of 2015MiscHow Danish Architects Connect with Users to Provide Them With the Best Architecture …Articles Share ArchDaily Photographs Houses Architects: Arturo Chadwick, Ricardo Torrejón Area Area of this architecture project Chile ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780143/cml-house-ricardo-torrejon-plus-arturo-chadwick Clipboard CML House / Ricardo Torrejón + Arturo Chadwick Projects Area:  129 m² Area:  129 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780143/cml-house-ricardo-torrejon-plus-arturo-chadwick Clipboard 2015 CopyHouses•Limache, Chilelast_img read more

Michigan prisoners continue fight for decent food

first_imgApril 18 — For three weeks, food protests in three Michigan prisons have been over 95 percent successful. The latest took place in Cotton Correctional Facility, about 85 miles west of Detroit. On April 12, the facility’s Level II security prisoners stayed in their cells during lunch and dinner, with only a few dozen turning up for meals.Michigan prisoners staged their first meal boycotts on March 20-21 at the Kinross prison in the state’s Upper Peninsula. The second protests occurred March 26-28 at the Chippewa facility near Kinross. In both prisons, only a handful of inmates reported for meals in protest over the quality of the food and meager portion size. Chippewa prisoners also used the act of skipping meals to draw attention to malfunctioning toilets and other issues.Aramark’s contract was terminated early over complaints that food was rotten, maggot infested and in contact with rodents.The target of all three protests was food provider Trinity, which took over the contract from Aramark. Aramark moved into Michigan’s prisons in 2013, when prison food operations were privatized and 370 union workers got the axe. Aramark’s contract was terminated early over complaints that food was rotten, maggot infested and in contact with rodents.The Michigan Department of Corrections then chose another scandal-ridden company. “Like its predecessor in Michigan, Trinity underfed inmates in Georgia to the point that one person resorted to eating toothpaste and a second man trembled in a cell from hunger,” wrote criminal justice journalist Carimah Townes. “Lingering concerns among Michigan prisoners have to do with the privatization of prison food services nationwide. Companies like Trinity and Aramark, which are concerned with their bottom lines, are unwilling to shell out money for enough food and to maintain fully staffed, clean kitchens.” (Think Progress, April 14)This is the backdrop to courageous protests that have made authorities nervous. “It’s definitely something the facilities took seriously,” said DOC spokesman Chris Gautz. “It is unusual in a high school or a prison, because there are different groups or cliques that form, to have everybody on the same page. It takes some coordination.” (detroitcbslocal.com, March 31)Authorities tried to pin the food protests at Chippewa on a prisoner sent there from Kinross, after being accused of assaulting one of the few men who did not support the food action there. Inmates transferred for disciplinary reasons are sent to Chippewa.Michigan has a number of prisons in the Upper Peninsula that are hundreds of miles from the families of most African-American prisoners. Michigan political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney has been unable to obtain a transfer out of Marquette prison, which is over 500 miles from his spouse’s home in Benton Harbor. When Rev. Pinkney received a recent copy of this newspaper, a previous article on the Kinross protest had been clipped out by prison authorities. But no amount of censorship can stem the nationwide tide of prisoner resistance.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Answering anti-LGBTQ despicables

first_imgNew York CityThe Trump administration’s bigotry was blasted at LGBTQ people on July 26 when the president tweeted in early morning that he was barring transgender individuals from the U.S. Armed Forces. Later in the day Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Department of “Justice” issued a legal brief arguing that employers could discriminate against LGBTQ workers.These attacks could result in over 15,000 people being expelled from the U.S. military and in LGBTQ people no longer having protection in housing, education or jobs. Until now this protection has been interpreted as covered by the Fair Housing Act and the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Title VII and Title IX.Director James Esseks, of the American Civil Liberty Union’s LGBT and HIV Project, said July 26 “will go down in history as Anti-LGBT Day.” (commondreams.org)But we’ve already had an avalanche of virulently anti-LGBTQ action by this administration during the last six months. Hours after Trump’s inauguration, all mention of LGBTQ issues was erased from the White House website. Hundreds of millions in funding have been slashed from government initiatives to help people with HIV and AIDS. LGBTQ people have been excluded from government data collection, including the U.S. Census Bureau, blocking documentation of the need for funding and support. Title IX protections for trans students in schools have been rolled back.The Trump administration is stacked with anti-LGBTQ despicables, including, notably, Vice President Mike Pence, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and, of course, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a racist admirer of the Ku Klux Klan.In a stand similar to that of Pence when he was governor of Indiana, Sessions as a U.S. senator supported a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, voted against workplace protections for LGBTQ people, voted to keep the U.S. military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” anti-gay policy and twice voted against expanding hate crimes to include attacks based on sexual orientation and gender identity.The most obvious engine for the rabid anti-LGBTQ actions of Pence and Sessions is their shared commitment to “Christian nationalism,” a far-right ideology with a U.S. history of violent racism against ­African Americans, virulent anti-Semitism, persecution of women who reject patriarchal rule and a sentence of damnation to LGBTQ people. (Washington Post, July 4) In this belief system, the U.S. was founded as a “Christian” nation, and only those believers deserve full citizenship.This far-right, near-fascist ideology of Trump, Pence and Sessions is a resurgence of earlier death-dealing campaigns against immigrants, African American and other people of color, workers, rebellious women and others criminalized as sex and gender outlaws. One such campaign was carried out by the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s, which dominated U.S. politics in that era. That campaign, funded and sanctioned by big business, was put in motion to break up any working-class unity among new immigrants, African Americans fleeing oppression in the U.S. South and newly industrialized “native-born” workers.It’s hard to remember, but Trump literally wrapped himself in the LGBTQ rainbow flag during his presidential campaign at a rally in Colorado. But his only promise to LGBTQ people, made as he accepted the Republican presidential nomination, was to “protect” them against the “foreign ideology” — of Islam.There is no protection for LGBTQ people in a white-supremacist “nation” that put Trump, Pence and Sessions in office. There is no safety for LGBTQ people in a “capitalist democracy” that continues to exist through brutal oppression, inside and outside the U.S.LGBTQ people in the U.S. are multinational, multigendered and overwhelmingly workers — whether employed or desperately needing work. The only way LGBTQ people will get the safety, work, health care, housing and education they need is through solidarity with other oppressed people and with their class — the multinational working class — together on the path toward socialism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Limerick’s Street to come alive for Catherine Street Summer Party

Bring a stool, bring a rug, bring some food. It’s a great excuse to come enjoy and share food, meet people who live near you and have a bit of craic. But it can be much more. It is an open invitation event also for out of towners who happen to be in the city centre that day. It is an opportunity to come along and partake in the fun atmosphere we can have on Limerick’s public streets when we think of other ways to use them. It is an opportunity to reach out and invite along your neighbour whom you know lives nearby but alone or is new to the neighbourhood.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The idea is all about building communities. So people bring their own picnic and come and spend time with each other in a healthy and vibrant family friendly environment. Kids bring along their toys to share and they become the link to new friends. Anybody feeling a little lonely that day is encouraged to come along and meet new friends. You do not need to be invited. All are welcome.A number of local businesses are enthusiastically supporting the event and will be helping to make it a lively and fun occasion for all who come along on the day.Limerick City is an incredible diverse, inclusive and vibrant urban location and this is yet another opportunity to showcase and celebrate that.Catherine Street has been selected as the venue to hold the Riverfest family-friendly community “street feast” building on their very successful event last year. The 2019 event, like 2018, is supported by Liveable Limerick and Limerick City and County Council.Niki McMahon from Liveable Limerick said “Street Feast is a long-established national day of neighbourhood picnics, celebrated across the country and now in its tenth year. We are inviting people to bring a picnic, bring their children, meet friends and make new ones on bank holiday Monday May 6 #liveablelimerick are working together with local residents, businesses, local groups, new and existing communities to bring the Street Feast back this year to the heart of Limerick City.”Ailish Drake from Liveable Limerick said  “The idea was so successful last year as it is simple. People bring their own picnic and come and spend time with each other in a healthy and vibrant family-friendly environment. A number of local businesses as they are doing again this year enthusiastically supported the event. Events like these build a real sense a community and contribute to the wellbeing of residents and their friends.”Local resident and business person RockyO’Shea says “Last year, it was great to see so many people having fun on the street outside our new business. Catherine Street has had a new lease of life in the last few years and occasions like this reinforce that revival. ”Liveable Limerick is engaging to run another street feast and if it can come close to matching last year’s success (although of course we hope it will exceed it), we plan to campaign for a summer long series of such initiatives to be brought to Limerick, with ever more streets closed to traffic on Sundays allowing those streets to transform into fun public space revealing the streets’ potential for other uses, such as picnics, dance, games, cooking, eating, a place to meet and connect.To get involved or for more information contact [email protected] or visit www.liveablelimerick.com Facebook Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Print NewsCommunityLimerick’s Street to come alive for Catherine Street Summer PartyBy Staff Reporter – April 16, 2019 3007 Vicky calls for right to die with dignity Email TAGS#LiveableLimerickCommunityNewsstreet party last_img read more

HUD Secretary to Work on Big Banks’ Lending Practices

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: Borrowers HOUSING HUD Lending mortgage Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Nicole Casperson Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Ben Carson said in a speech on Monday that he promises to help big banks get more comfortable about financing lower-income borrowers, without fear of being penalized from mortgage lending errors, according to an article by Bloomberg.“Innocent errors should not create chaos and fear and make people less likely to get involved in the first place,” Secretary Carson said in a speech at a MBA conference in Denver, Colorado.Secretary Carson’s focus on lending practices comes from HUD’s Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Justice Department having to shell out billions of dollars in fines and legal settlements resulting from the financial crisis.DS News previously reported that the big banks may have become far less competitive in the overall mortgage market, with some of the largest banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America, pulling back on lending through government programs to stay clear from getting sued by the federal government.In addition, while these big banks also continue to bear the brunt of mistakes in underwriting and, as a result, protect themselves by charging slightly more for home loans to avoid risky lending—they are leaving lower-income borrowers with higher costs and fewer financing options.According to Bloomberg, Secretary Carson’s comments come as the Trump Administration “attempt to curb rules and regulations they see as constraining businesses.”Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury Department released its first report recommendation for the banking industry in June 2017 and has been releasing a series of regulatory recommendations since—but the banking sector could be expecting more changes soon with Secretary Carson’s focus on the matter.In the end, the article reports that ultimately Secretary Carson’s goal is the FHA and Justice Department working to revise the rules so lenders can practice without fear of being overly punished for inconsequential errors.View the full Bloomberg article by clicking here.

See what’s coming soon to Downtown Ithaca

first_imgAt the crux of the construction issue are claims by Taylor that the project had undergone significant changes and wanted to be compensated for the late changes. Although downplayed at the time, it became clear in the months since that there were major programmatic and minor aesthetic changes. The programmatic change was the reduction of 30 micro units (for a new total of 78 apartments, mostly one-bedroom and two-bedrooms with a few studios) to make way for an additional 10,000 SF of office space for an unspecified tech tenant, as mentioned in the revised IDA application. Most of its commercial spaces appear to still be on the market. Harold’s Square (133-139 The Commons) Tompkins Center for History and Culture (110 North Tioga Street/Bank Alley) Bank Tower Renovation (202 The Commons) It seems we can move this one back into the under construction column? It’s been a weird few months. For those who want a better look at what’s going on inside, a sneak peak of the interior can be found on the TCHC’s Facebook page. A glance at their Instagram suggests that as of a week ago, about 100 of the 192 apartment units have been reserved. There don’t appear to be any particular trends in the unit selection, an off-the-cuff suggests a similar occupancy rate for studios, one-bedroom and two-bedrooms, and there’s no strong preference in floors, though perhaps there’s a slight preference towards interior-facing units (I wouldn’t call it statistically significant). It appears they’re filling at a good clip now that graduate and professional students are making their commitments to Cornell (professional students, for example business/MBA and law/JD students, tend to be older and wealthier, and are one of the target markets for the project). If trends continue, the project will be in good shape for its June opening, with full retail occupancy and high residential occupancy, even at City Centre’s decidedly upmarket prices. This project continues to crawl along at its slow if steady pace. The deteriorated front steps are being rebuilt, new historically-appropriate windows have been installed, and the railings have been installed for the new cellar stairs and the wheelchair ramp to the auditorium space. The graffiti has been there. It’s not clear if the roof membrane has been replaced yet, and the exterior will be cleaned at a later date. The outside is fairly far along, but from the windows there appear to be few if any signs of significant interior work underway. The project website itself, which is a bit hard to find (www.banktoweroffices.us), shows updated renderings for break rooms, bathrooms and state-of-the-art conference space on the third floor. Renders for the new first floor interior and exterior signage/decor are included in this post. The 1970s addition on the north side appears to get a hanging living wall treatment. Doing a cross-comparison, the new windows and cleaned exterior do a nice job sprucing up the nearly 100 year-old building. As before, there has not been any news regarding commercial tenants signed up to fill the renovated space once it’s complete – a January posting on Loopnet listed a 4,000 SF space on the first floor, a 6,668 SF space on the first floor, and 6,666 SF space split between the second and third floors. A retail renter of the whole building gets a discounted price of $8 per square foot for a five-year lease, while renting just one of the spaces will cost $10-$14 per square foot for a five-year lease. The Fane Organization tends to be very tight-lipped about their business deals, so no word on any potential tenants. The $1.5 million renovation is being designed by architectural preservation specialists Johnson-Schmidt & Associates of Corning, and renovated by McPherson Builders of Ithaca. Brian Crandall It appears that the Hilton Canopy hotel developers put an in-house restaurant back into the mix late in the development process. The new eatery will be called “Ezra” in what’s ostensibly a nod to Ezra Cornell. It’s not clear how large the new restaurant will be, but the early designs called for about 2,000 SF of space. In keeping with the Canopy theme, the restaurant logo incorporates Pantone PMS165 orange, with aluminum letters, faced in matte black base vinyl print, and on a wood laminate background intended to mimic Brazilian Walnut. The address for the new 131-room hotel will be 310 East State / Martin Luther King Jr. Street. The signage will be built and installed by Lauretano Sign Group of Connecticut. Outdoor dining spaces will have chic industrial aesthetic tables and chairs and contemporary, durable outdoor furniture. The attachments on Loopnet page show that all five of the upper levels are available, with spaces ranging from 225 SF to 20,000 SF. Internal doorways between office suites give some flexibility on the lower floors for an almost-modular office space approach to expand and contract as needed, while floors six and seven go with the more fashionable open office floorplan. The ads suggest that, if 20,000 SF is the max available, and there’s 37,151 SF of leasable space, then CFCU is taking 17,151 SF. No price per SF is listed, but phone inquiries can be made with Fane’s management firm, Ithaca Renting. Tagged: Bank Tower, city centre, construction, downtown ithaca, Harold’s Square, hilton canopy hotel, masonic temple, Photos, The Tompkins Center for History and Culture As for City Centre, we now know who its trio of tenants: the Ale House, Collegetown Bagels and Chase Bank. Although two of three are cannibalizing other Downtown locations, the move comes with some benefits – it’s an expansion for CTB and the Ale House, and the Ale House is expecting to add 20 jobs. Chase is brand new, and if the average bank branch is 2,000 SF and 6.5 staff, it seems safe to assume that a 5,357 SF branch/regional office is probably 12-15 staff. Ithaca’s own HOLT Architects is engaged in some minor building design work and Whitham Planning and Design is doing the landscaping (including the heat lamps, string lighting and fire pits), Saxton Sign Corporation of Auburn will make the signage, Trade Design Build of Ithaca and TPG Architecture of New York will flesh out the interiors, and East Hill’s Sedgwick Business Interiors will provide furnishings. Clicking here will allow you to scroll through the interior layouts for the retail spaces. As for the construction itself, work on the fiber cement panel and brick veneer installation continues. It looks like a waterproof materials might be going on over the gypsum sheathing, laid over with metal rails and then faced with the exterior material of choice. The rails would allow for any outside moisture absorbed to drain down and off the building. Some of the industrial-style windows are in,with flashing tape surrounding the window to prevent water and air penetration. We also now know what “sauteed mushroom” looks like as an exterior siding color. The hotel is expected to open in “Mid 2019”, probably too late for the May graduations but Q3 2019 looks plausible. Hilton Canopy Hotel (310 East State Street) Anyway, work has recommenced on the steel structure, as the eighth floor is built out. Since the upper floors have small floorplates, the building’s steel structure will likely top out before the start of summer. From there, it’s fireproofing, sprinkler systems, exterior and interior wall framing, rough-ins, sheathing, and all the fun stuff that makes a building begin to look like its final product. On the exterior, some of the Overly and Larson ACM metal panels have yet to be installed (mostly on the back./interior side), trim and exterior details are partially in place, and the ground level is still being built out with commercial doors and utility fixtures (garage doors for commercial deliveries, for example). The roof membrane doesn’t appear to be in place yet either. Overall, though, the exterior is substantially complete, and it looks like the will finish out over the next several weeks on schedule, which is a pretty big deal for a 218,000 SF $53 million project. For those interested, some job openings have been posted. The General Manager has the co-title of “Chief Enthusiast”. Management can expect to make up to $80k/year, but most staff will fall in the $11-$15/hour range, with a bit more for some titles and a bit less ($7.50/hour + tips) for those who will be working in the restaurant. They might be a little higher given those were 2014 figures, but it’s too early tell, since it looks likes only management jobs are being filled at the moment. City Centre (301 East State Street) It was also very problematic for neighboring business owners. The project has already created some frustration with its blockading of the Commons playground out of safety concerns. The construction, and lack thereof, created an unattractive nuisance, with people steering away from neighboring businesses and taking their money elsewhere. The abatement was shifted forward a year, but not without significant blowback from members of the general public who had taken the opportunity to air their grievances with the development team. The current plan is to have the office and retail space available for occupancy by the end of the year, with housing occupancy by spring 2020 and 100% completion by May 2020. The developers, L Enterprises (David Lubin) and Mcguire Development of Buffalo, parted way with Taylor the Builders, the construction manager, back in January. They were able to line up another construction manager in LeChase Construction of Rochester, which has done its fair share of work around Ithaca and Tompkins County. Issues with transferring control and insurance paperwork of the 300-ton crane, however, delayed the project’s construction by several weeks, but the project did finally resume in early March. ITHACA, N.Y. — It’s a brisk day outside, so make yourself a cup of coffee or tea and have a look at some of the projects underway in Downtown Ithaca. Masonic Temple Renovation (115-117 North Cayuga Street) The Tompkins Center for History and Culture is on track to open in a few weeks. Haven’t not seen a specific date posted just yet, but it will be sometime in April. The gentlemen at the front door there is The History Center’s Executive Director (and candidate for town of Ithaca supervisor) Rod Howe. After renovations are complete, The History Center, Community Arts Partnership, and the Ithaca/Tompkins Convention and Visitors Bureau will all have public exhibit and retail space on the ground floor of the Center. A mix of community partners, including the Wharton Studio Museum, the Dorothy Cotton Institute, the Discovery Trail, will have office space on the building’s upper floors. It looks like interior cabinetry, fixtures and trim are being installed in the renovated Bank Tower’s first floor. As readers may recall, the first and second floors of the building will serve as the new headquarters for CFCU credit union. According to the Fane Organization’s Bank Tower website, renovated office space on the upper levels became available for occupancy in December. It doesn’t look like the website was recently updated, but the Loopnet listing was, and the put they offices on Craigslist as well.
