A group of middle-class houses, mainly built in the first half of the 20th century, are located above the Herz-Jesu church at the foot of the prominent Pfänder mountainside in Bregenz. The size of the house blends in with the other sporadic, villa-like houses, and the compact, square exposed concrete structure has identical facades on all sides, except for the west side of the house facing the lake.Save this picture!Courtesy of Marte Marte ArchitektenOwing to the steep slope of the property, two of the four levels are cut into the hillside. Users coming home by bicycle or car enter the house by the driveway, which is a little below road level, and then disappear into a spacious, multi-functional room. Access to the elevator is available on this level, which means that the house is barrier-free. Visitors arriving on foot reach the front door by climbing the stairs on the north side. A granny flat on this level offers users a variety of options for the future, which can be used for now as an office or a den, including a view of the lake while exercising or sitting in the sauna.Save this picture!Floor PlanA central staircase tower leads up to the bedroom level and above it the actual beletage greets visitors with a breathtaking 360° view. A real panorama opens up to users between balcony and porch roof, capturing the atmosphere of the lake and the sky, putting the city at the users’ feet and bringing the mountain right into the house. The sheltering gesture of the two hat-like brims, above and below, is balanced spatially by the extra height of the room. Together they create a sense of intimacy and a feeling of safety, although the room is also very transparent. The horizontal matte windows focus and capture the eye and curtains on all four sides provide absolute privacy at night.Save this picture!Courtesy of Marte Marte ArchitektenA walkway on the slope side provides access to the outdoors. Placing the structure on the street has resulted in a large sloping yard to the southeast. This runs along a steep flight of stairs at the edge of the property, which ensures public thoroughfare through the area. This building with its idiosyncratic combination of distinctive style and wit seems homogeneous and hermetic to those on the outside, while at the same time interacting with its surroundings in a very subtle and deliberate way.Project gallerySee allShow lessAD Interviews: Eric Bunge / nArchitectsInterviewsOffice Design / IND ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMarte.Marte ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBregenzAustriaPublished on August 12, 2014Cite: “House by the Lake / Marte.Marte Architects” 12 Aug 2014.

This park is space to connect residents, especially children and elders. Our project was considered like an organic object that was attached to the park, pretty sensitive to any form of the façade. The solution in here is organic integration into the landscape park. We created a soft sun shadow curtain what was inspirited from Vietnam traditional architecture. With modern materials are steel and wire mesh, a hidden architecture among nature inside urban from the visual sense. This material will create a layer of color rust on the surface gradually over time which the trees in the park enough height to make the project easily interact about color.

Tess + JJ’s House is located on a small site in a heritage context in South Yarra, Melbourne. The brief was to create a new two-story house that wouldn’t upset the neighbors, on a small footprint with all the amenities needed for a young family of four.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittThe double story frontage reinterprets the single window and front door arrangement of its Victorian period-style neighbors. This illusion of an over-scaled single-story house sits quietly within the character of the street, despite the raised floor level required to satisfy the flood overlay requirements, and conceals the open and sunny living areas to the rear, which focuses its views towards the garden and sky.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittThe internal experience was the starting point for the project. A darker, compressed entry hallway leads to a contrasting light-filled kitchen and dining area – a generous and welcoming double height volume, central to the lives of a family who love to cook and entertain. With views to the sky to the east, a small deck, and garden and established birch trees to the north, it’s a space where family and friends can gather and feel distant from its urban context.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittCounter to the lofty, upwards-focussed central volume, the family room to the rear directs its view downwards towards the pool, providing complete privacy from the apartment blocks beyond. The open plan living is fractured by two courtyards, which define the rooms and provides garden aspects from all vantage points. Upstairs, the kids’ zone was designed to feel like a cubby – with battened screens at either end of the shared play area for spying on the grown-ups below.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittProject gallerySee allShow lessIBENERGI Center / taller abiertoSelected ProjectsKashino Residence / Kidosaki Architects StudioSelected Projects Share Lead Architects: Fiona Poon CopyAbout this officepo-co ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSouth YarraAustraliaPublished on June 04, 2018Cite: “Tess + JJ’s House / po-co Architecture” 04 Jun 2018.

Charity Checkout passes £2m mark in donations to small charities

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Online payment processing company Charity Checkout has now helped charities raise £2.1 million in donations since January 2012.The volume of growth has increased considerably in the past year, especially since it introduced its Direct Debit service for small charities. The social enterprise processed the second million pounds in just the last six months.Having now processed almost 40,000 donations, it reports an average donation value of £56.61.Charities new to online fundraisingWith its support for smaller charities, the company reports that more than half of its 1,000 charity clients have not fundraised online before using Charity Checkout. In addition, it claims that over two thirds of the donations it has received represent new income for the sector.Chester Mojay-Sinclare, founder of Charity Checkout said:“We specialise in supporting small charities that find the costs or technical requirements of traditional payment processing prohibitive. The industry status quo is to charge smaller organisations more to compensate for their low transaction volume. We take the opposite approach offering discounts for smaller charities to ensure our payment service is accessible to all good causes. We’re delighted to have reached the £2,000,000 landmark, but there is still a lot more to achieve and many more small charities to help access online donations.” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

‘Streetz Party’ commemorates Black Panther leader’s birthday in Chicago

first_imgEvery year on Aug. 30, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. and the Prisoners of Conscience Committee/Black Panther Party Cubs organize a birthday celebration for Chairman Fred Hampton Sr., the Black Panther Party leader in Chicago who was assassinated by the Chicago Police Department in a pre-dawn raid on Dec. 4, 1969, along with Defense Captain Mark Clark.The Chairman Fred Streetz Party always kicks off at noon at Ground Zero, 2337 W. Chairman Fred Hampton Sr. Way (aka “Monroe St.”), with Comrade Mother Akua Njeri giving her harrowing account of the CPD death squad raid at that address.Comrade Mother Akua Njeri and Chairman Fred, Jr. in front of 2337 W. Monroe.Revolutionaries and supporters of the Black national liberation struggle come from all around the country and all around the world for the Streetz Party, with this year’s crowd being one of the biggest in years.  Shooting continued on the APJ Films movie being made about Chairman Fred Sr.’s assassination.Preceding this was a revolutionary speech by Chairman Fred Jr. on the theme “Who/What Created Chiraq?” — a reference to the violent conditions created in the Black community in Chicago by the neocolonial occupation by the CPD, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel’s attempt to pull the plug on public education.Chairman Fred Jr. spoke about the mass incarceration of Black youth in the U.S. prison system, which he referred to as “concentration camps,” part of a POCC/BPPC policy of “using brutal terms to describe brutal realities.”  He also spoke about his time in these camps as a political prisoner and his experiences educating fellow captives about the revolutionary politics of the Black Panther Party.He also spoke about the recent events in Ferguson, Mo., making the point that what has unfolded during the past several weeks is not a “riot” — as the corporate media call it — but a rebellion against the intolerable conditions that the neocolonial occupation has imposed on the Black community.The chairman denounced the “charlatans and Sharptons” who try to divert the uprising into channels controlled by the Democratic Party, saying of the role of the POCC/BPPC, “We aren’t divisive, we simply expose the contradictions.” He went on to make comparisons between the uprising in Ferguson and the Palestinian people’s resistance to Zionist colonialism in Gaza.Revolutionary greetings and a message of solidarity were delivered by representatives of Workers World Party, L.Y.R.I.C. (Let Your Rhymes Inspire Creativity) Squad, the Nation of Islam and the Freedom House Academy.After the rally at Ground Zero (“where we had our own 9/11, where police terrorism took out our Twin Towers, Chairman Fred and Defense Captain Mark Clark”), Chairman Fred Jr. led a tour of the neighborhood to spots where the Panthers used to drill, leading over to the mural of Chairman Fred Sr. by the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective at The Wall, on Madison and California.The Streetz Party continued at The Wall, where people were barbecuing and listening to disc jockeys and performances by L.Y.R.I.C. Squad and a former member of the seminal 1990’s Chicago hip-hop group Psychodrama.This was one of the most successful Streetz Party events the POCC/BPPC has had in years, and they look forward to even more people attending International Revolutionary Day (commemorating the martyrdom of Chairman Fred Sr.) on Dec. 4 and next year’s Streetz Party.  Those interested can keep up with POCC/BPPC events at chairmanfredjr.blogspot.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Q2’s rate was not statistically different from Q1 2019’s rate of 1.4%, the Bureau notes. Additionally, homeownership rates remained at a relatively unchanged rate of 64.1%.Meanwhile, rental vacancy rates were 6.8% in Q2 2019. The Bureau notes that this rate is virtually unchanged year-over-year, and not statistically different from Q1 2019’s rate. Approximately 87.8% of the housing units in the United States in the Q2 2019 were occupied and 12.2% were vacant.  Vacant units that were held off market comprised 5.5% of the total housing stock, and 1.6% were for occasional use, 1.0% were temporarily occupied by persons with usual residence elsewhere and 3.0% were vacant for a variety of other reasons.Some cities are combating these vacant, temporarily occupied homes through “empty homes penalties.” Voters in Oakland, California recently approved Measure W, a tax of as much as $6,000 per parcel and $3,000 per condo unit on properties occupied fewer than 50 days per year. The tax is expected to bring in around $10 million per year, which is intended to go toward homeless services and new affordable housing, Capital and Main reports. Additionally, San Francisco Supervisor Aaron Peskin wants to put a vacancy tax on the March 2020 election ballot, with a focus on empty storefront. Meanwhile, vacancy tax pushes in Los Angeles focus more on residential properties. Proponents of these vacancy taxes say that they will improve access to affordable housing by keeping speculators from sitting on them until they can rent them for a higher rate, or sell them at a greater profit when prices inevitably increase.
