Nestled within swaths of Moonah and tea tree is a new home for a professional couple seeking a seaside retreat in the coastal town of Barwon Heads. The house replaces a former dilapidated cedar cabin and serves as the couple’s primary residence and a holiday home for their three grown children who frequently visit. The form, orientation and materials of the dwelling respond to the extreme coastal conditions that define the site.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerLocated within close proximity to Bass Strait and the mouth of the Barwon River, the building staggers diagonally across the site providing protection from prevailing south-west weather patterns. Dark grey corrugated iron encases the building and provides a backdrop to verdant Moonah, Boobialla and dune scrub. The robust material echoes an Australian vernacular and reflects the workman-like quality of the exterior. Upon entry, the austere external treatment gives way to the warmth and tactility of timber.Save this picture!Ground floor planLight stained timber is used on floors and ceilings to accentuate the horizontal quality of the site; whereas dark stain is applied to vertical surfaces to provide depth and comparison to the external view. In contrast with timber elements, light grey satin render has been applied to blockwork walls to allow light to bounce deeper into the space.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThese walls run north to south stabilizing the internal environment while also dividing the floor plate into thirds. Apertures have been carefully considered and seek to capture views and frame moments. The outlook towards the sand dunes to south and south-west is afforded by windows that are either puncture or are carved out of the peripheral skin. The home is spatially organized with living spaces to the north and services to the south. The ground floor accommodates the bedrooms for the couple’s children as well as a generous bathroom and rumpus area.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerUpstairs unfolds as a celebration of communal spaces with the kitchen, dining and living areas. Adjacent is the master bedroom which enjoys a wonderful aspect of water, trees and sky. Highly adaptable, the home has been designed to seamlessly open, close, expand and contract to meet the fluctuating needs of the family. Experiences of home and space therefore feel intimate and cozy as well as exuberant and expansive. Joinery is integrated subtly throughout the home and marries seamlessly with timber wall paneling.Save this picture!SectionsA study is tucked in next to a large built-in bookcase in the living space and can be opened up or concealed with sliding doors that align perfectly with the wall above. Stone and porcelain punctuate the uniform timber joinery with limestone benchtops in the kitchen, vanities in the bathrooms as well as a long low-height bench in the living space. To the north, the cladding peels away to expose panoramic views of the abundant protected landscaping beyond.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThe northern aspect also draws warmth from the sun and allows light to flood into the living spaces. Cross flow ventilation is achieved with the integration of solid ventilation panels that can be controlled within each space ensuring views remain clear and unobstructed. New landscape works restore indigenous vegetation and help blend the edge of the building with the broader site vegetation. The ground has been sculpted in undulating forms to reflect pre-existing conditions and a new raised pool extends out from the dwelling into the tea tree and Moonah.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerProject gallerySee allShow lessWellness Center / D.LIM architectsSelected ProjectsTienda Breathe / MasquespacioSelected Projects Share Australia Barwon Heads House / Lovell Burton ArchitectureSave this projectSaveBarwon Heads House / Lovell Burton ArchitectureSave this picture!© Rory Gardiner+ 27Curated by María Francisca González Share Light Projects Manufacturers: Apaiser, Archclad, Brodware, Cheminees Philippe, Miele, In Good Company Lighting Consultant: Year:  ESD Consultant: CopyAbout this officeLovell Burton ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarwon HeadsOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on November 18, 2020Cite: “Barwon Heads House / Lovell Burton Architecture” 18 Nov 2020.

Tanzanian reporter finally freed after seven months

first_img Help by sharing this information “The authorities exacted a high price, because he had to pay an exorbitant sum to get out of a prison he should never have entered. The seven months in detention and the thousands of euros paid for his release are indicative of the enormous pressures on journalists in a country that has seen a constant decline in press freedom in recent years.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes Tanzanian journalist Erick Kabendera’s release today after nearly seven months in prison but regrets that he had to plead guilty to charges of money-laundering and tax evasion to be freed. The high price exacted by the authorities is indicative of the steady decline in press freedom in Tanzania, RSF said. Le journaliste Erick Kabdendera est ressorti libre du tribunal de Kisutu en Tanzanie le 24 février 2020. Photo @JamiiForums Organisation A stringer for such renowned media outlets as The Guardian and The East African, Kabendera was arrested on 29 July 2019 on suspicion of having obtained his Tanzanian citizenship fraudulently. Thereafter, the charges against him kept on being changed in a series of hearings because the prosecution was unable to produce supporting evidence.

Everything was done to undermine him. Hearings were repeatedly postponed at the request of the prosecution, which said it needed more time to complete its investigations. Kabendera was not even allowed out of prison to attend his mother’s funeral in December. News Tanzanian media unable to cover Covid-19 epidemic News Reports TanzaniaAfrica Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionPredatorsEconomic pressureJudicial harassment After a charge of “organized economic crime” was finally dropped today, Kabendera obtained his release by paying the equivalent of 40,000 euros in taxes that he had allegedly failed to pay and a fine of 100 euros on the charges of tax evasion and money-laundering to which he pleaded guilty.  His lawyer told RSF that he will have to pay an additional 29,000 euros in allegedly unpaid taxes over the next six months. “We are extremely relieved by this investigative journalist’s release but we continue to maintain that he should never have been imprisoned,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. RSF_en Since 2016, the year after John Magufuli became president, Tanzania has fallen 47 places in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 118th out of 180 countries. Harassment and intimidation of journalists has increased, reporters are often arrested, some media outlets have been suspended and several laws have been adopted that restrict free speech and the freedom to inform. After Azory Gwanda, a reporter for Mwananchi, Tanzania’s leading Swahili-language newspaper, and its English-language edition, The Citizen, went missing in November 2017, the authorities provided no information about his disappearance and no serious investigation was ever conducted.last_img read more
