A minimal yet radical architectural strategy transforms a landmark Edwardian residence in South Rosedale. The challenge of modernizing the historically designated Street House, designed by architect William Alexander Langton for Mrs. Elenor Street in 1908, began with a single surgical gesture that unlocks the constricted formal plan to become a spatially flowing, light-filled home, suited to contemporary family life.Save this picture!© Raymond ChowResponding to the exceptional original detailing, two methods reconcile old and new: shearing (where old and new are juxtaposed and contrasted with sharp delineation) and co-existence (merging and co-existence of modern and historic details where historic merit calls for respectful reinstatement).Save this picture!© Raymond ChowSpatial FlowFluid connectivity between rooms and floors was the ambition of a radical, surgical planimetric strategy, which overwrites a compartmentalized configuration whose servants’ quarters and formal delineation between front and back of house remained vestiges of another era.Save this picture!© Raymond ChowModernizing the spatial potential of an L-shaped Edwardian plan, the transformation opens the back of the house and lowers the floor level to unlock views back on itself and connect to a new courtyard. Within, it introduces a fluid interior spatial flow connecting the more formal west wing to the everyday east wing through a light-filled gallery. The insertion of a white stair connects vertically, its sculptural modern form using the Edwardian openings and proportions as light-source and foil.Save this picture!First Floor PlanShearing and ContrastThe central surgical act is the excision of the exterior brick back wall of the house. This sharp delineation allows the robust articulated brick exterior to be retained, while the interior becomes reductionist and focuses on essential elements of light, proportion and volume. This ‘shearing off’ is expressed through new brick soffits that visually resolve chimney and second floor stair and float above the sharp steel line between original and new.Save this picture!© Raymond ChowThe lower part of brick exterior walls are replaced with super scaled glazed walls enhancing connectedness to the site. A new concrete plinth creates a new two-sided courtyard aligning the outdoor space with interiors. Within, sharply contrasting elements include razor thin-aluminum fins that notionally cut through restored crown moldings and wainscoting to achieve pristine full-height openings that connect the formal rooms of the ground floor.Save this picture!© Raymond ChowSelective Revelation and Co-ExistenceThroughout the house, the beautifully constructed layers of the original structure are revealed then celebrated. The design articulates the surface record of the house’s auspicious history, to achieve a light-filled well-proportioned balance between past and present. Certain features are stripped back to bare brick, with traces of the past left behind as evidence the building has been cared for and adapted over the years, with each generation adding its own layer to a unique history.Save this picture!© Raymond ChowMost expressive of this is the north gallery wall, a palimpsest of previous openings and floor levels. The renovation leaves untouched brick joist pockets, a jack arch, a black brick stringcourse, and exposes the lesser-valued yellow brick of an unearthed original wall. This historical narrative is washed in light by larger-scaled transparent openings of the modern intervention.Save this picture!© Raymond ChowProject gallerySee allShow lessAnchorena / Proyecto CSelected ProjectsHouse Krailling / Unterlandstättner ArchitektenSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/552891/street-house-gh3 Clipboard Street House / gh3 Street House / gh3Save this projectSaveStreet House / gh3 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/552891/street-house-gh3 Clipboard Architects: gh3 Photographs “COPY” CopyHouses, Renovation•Toronto, Canada Canada “COPY” CopyAbout this officegh3OfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationTorontoHousesRefurbishmentRenovationCanadaPublished on October 06, 2014Cite: “Street House / gh3” 06 Oct 2014.

Tagged with: Charity Commission Law / policy sport English Bridge Union Chairman, Jeremy Dhondy, said:“We are delighted to have finalised the approved governing document with the Charity Commission. It will be helpful to our affiliated clubs which are eligible to apply to register as charities and in turn it will strengthen their membership and position in the local community”.English Bridge Education and Development was registered as a charity in April 2014. Simon Barb, Manager of the charity, believes that this has been an important step for bridge in England. He said:“Putting all our education activities under a charitable umbrella has enabled us to work even more efficiently on both our recruitment efforts and reaching out to our young and mature target audiences”.Bridge clubs and charitable statusBridge clubs can be recognised as charities following the Charities Act 2006. This recognised that whilst sport has often been used to advance charitable aims it is now charitable to advance amateur sports or games, which promote health by involving physical or mental skill or exertion, as an aim in itself.The first bridge club to achieve charitable status was Hitchin Bridge Club in 2011.Photo: playing cards by Sumire8 on Shutterstock.com 29 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The English Bridge Union (EBU) has worked with the Charity Commission to develop a governing document and support materials that are designed to help bridge clubs that are applying to register as charities.Neville Brownlee, Head of First Contact at the Charity Commission, said:“Using up to date comprehensive governing documents is one way that charities can assure their regulators, funders, service users and the wider public that they are committed to running their organisation effectively. The Approved Governing Document (AGD) offers a template, which helps increase the standard of application and encourages a consistent approach from the EBU’s member bridge clubs when registering as charities. It also provides members, and the public, with an easy to understand set of rules that should help with their effective governance of their charities.” Advertisement Documentation to help bridge clubs applying for charitable status AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 2 September 2014 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Receive email alerts January 21, 2021 Find out more AustraliaAsia – Pacific AustraliaAsia – Pacific On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia In the wake of a Sri Lankan refugee’s death at Villawood Immigration Detention Centre in Sydney on 25 October, Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the immigration minister’s draconian new rules for media access to such centres as an abusive restriction on news and information that is tantamount to censoring coverage of a matter of great public interest. The Sri Lankan refugee was the seventh detainee to die at one of these centres this year.“If these rules are applied, they would turn Australia’s immigration detention centres into the most impenetrable places in the world, on a level with Guantanamo,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “This control system for journalists, including the authorization process, the obligation to sign an agreement and the escort requirement, all seriously violate the right to information that is supposed to be guaranteed by the law. Julliard added: “We urge immigration minister Chris Bowen to rescind these rules and allow journalists to be free to do their job. The government must recognize that these centres cannot become secrets places where human tragedies can take place with the public knowing. Access to immigrant detention centres is not just a problem for journalists in Australia. It is also restricted or banned in most European countries without this being specified in any laws or regulations. The conditions in which foreign citizens are held in detention centres are a matter of public interest.”Under the rules published last week by the department of immigration, journalists who want to visit an immigration detention centre must sign a “deed of agreement” that regulates everything, including what the journalists can report, and establishes a system of prior approval of all photos, video and audio footage before they are published or broadcast.Access request procedureUnder the agreement, journalists undertake to comply with all the rules set by the immigration department, They have to fill out forms in which they must identify not only themselves, the centre they want to visit, and the date of their visit, but also the nature of the media content they want to acquire and the equipment they intend to use. They also have to undertake to give the immigration department a copy of any photograph, video or audio recording and they are not allowed to take phones, cameras, recorders or any “other items” with them unless specifically authorized in advance. Failure to respect any of the undertakings listed on page 13 of the agreement can result in the temporary or permanent withdrawal of the permission that has been given to journalists or their media.Restrictions on journalists inside the centreFor the most part, the rules forbid photographing, filming or recording migrants or “protected parties” on “protection of privacy” grounds. They do not refer to any possibility of a person being able to specify whether or not they want to be interviewed by a journalist. The term “protected party” is defined every broadly and includes the detention centre’s personnel as well as people who are visiting detainees.Journalists are forbidden to interview or “engage in any substantive communication” with any detainee unless specifically authorized to do so by the immigration department. According to Point 5 on Page 4 of the agreement, any unauthorized media content must be destroyed.Journalists who are allowed into a detention centre must be accompanied at all times by a representative of the centre (Point 7.2) and must remain in “close proximity” with the representative (7.2.a). They must also follow the representative’s instructions on what may or may not be filmed, photographed or recorded at any time (7.2.c).Two underlying justifications are given for any restrictive decision that may be taken by the detention centre (7.3): “national interests” and the “privacy” of detainees and “protected parties.” The detention centre’s representatives are free to interpret this as they see fit. There are no guidelines and no provision for referring to an independent judge.In the event of any disagreement, journalists have to destroy the relevant photos, video or audio recording on pain of expulsion from the centre.At the end of the visit, the centre’s representative reviews all of the photos, video and audio recordings taken by the journalists to ensure that they comply with the rules (7.4). The detention centre has “absolute discretion” in determining whether or not they comply (7.4 d).

To help the investigators, a witness protection programme should also be set up with the help of countries in the region.”Police said the body of Aidan Abdallah Al-Jamiji, who was in charge of Kirkuk television’s Turkmen-language section and who was also a well-known local musician, was found on 26 May in the boot of his car, which been torched and dumped near the cemetery of Kirkuk, 250 km north of Baghdad.Mahmud Hassib Al-Kassab, the editor of the weekly Al-Hawadith and a member of Inkad Al-Turkman (the Turkmen Salvation Movement), was gunned down outside his home in the northern part of Kirkuk on 28 May. A local newspaper said he had been injured six weeks ago when a hand grenade was thrown at him in an apparent murder attempt, Abdel-Rahman Al-Issawi (photo), 34, a journalism professor at Baghdad university and contributor to several newspapers, was killed along with seven members of his family (including his wife, son, father and mother) when gunmen stormed into his home in Amariyah, near Fallujah, on 29 May and opened fire. Nizar Al-Radhi (photo), 38, an employee of the independent news agency Aswat Al-Irak (Voices of Iraq) and correspondent since last year for Radio Free Iraq, was fatally shot and several of his colleagues were wounded when three gunmen in a pickup yesterday opened fire on a group of journalist who had gone to a news conference outside the city hall of Amara (365 km south of Baghdad).In the Philippines, where six journalists were killed last year, the authorities have created a Task Force to handle crimes of violence against members of the news media. This specialised unit establishes a relationship with the families of the victims and protects people who come forward as witnesses. IraqMiddle East – North Africa

ABC News(NEW YORK) — A new storm is beginning to organize along the Texas-New Mexico border, and it’s expected to deliver a first round of severe weather Saturday from Texas to Mississippi.Gusts of almost 60 mph and golf ball-sized hail already have been reported in west Texas Saturday morning.The system will head east across the southern Plains from San Antonio toward Dallas, with numerous severe storms predicted for Saturday afternoon.Weather models also are showing intense local storms in northwest Louisiana and southern Arkansas over that time period.In an enhanced risk region, there’s the greatest chance of damaging wind, large hail and tornadoes, as even outside that region, several storms will be developing from San Antonio all the way to Memphis. The main storm is expected to move north into the Midwest overnight.On Sunday, another system is expected to develop, delivering a second ground of severe weather across that same area — roughly San Antonio to New Orleans — as severe scattered storms spread into the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys. A larger region at slight risk for severe weather on Sunday stretches from Texas to Kentucky and includes major cities such as Houston, Nashville and Louisville. The biggest risk, again, will be damaging wind, hail and potential tornadoes.More than 4 inches of rain could be possible through Monday, especially along the Mississippi River Valley, where flash flooding from a massive or slow-moving storm remains a concern. Fewer severe threats are expected on Monday.Following the storms across the U.S. should be temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal. Atlanta may see 84 as a high on Sunday, with St. Louis predicted to reach 80. That warm air will slide east and push north on Monday, probably increasing temps along the East Coast to about 15 degrees above historical averages.Cooler air over the Atlantic Ocean will begin pushing back to the west over New England on Monday, keeping parts of the region cool and cloudy, and potentially with drastic temperature differences over just a few hundred miles.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
