Making the old one last longer because of the new: for centuries, architecture has done nothing else than this exercise of reuse, until the demand for recycling stagnated by an abundance of materials. Although the development of sustainable use encourages the recycling of materials such as those of buildings, reuse is not always an obvious thing and in the first instance it conflicts with the wear and tear of the objects that one wishes to reuse. It therefore seemed difficult to give a new life to this vacant agricultural building in the rural part of the Belgian municipality of Grimbergen. But the owner – a family who lived in the city – and touched by the beauty of this mini-ruin, asked the architect to design a contemporary project. Other important requirements were the preservation of the view of the underlying agricultural land, and a long-term energy-independent home. In view of the latter, all possibilities are foreseen to invest even more in renewable energy sources. A design was proposed by the architects that would visually contrast with that of the existing home with livestock stables in decline. For this purpose a ruin shell was created that immediately formed an acoustic buffer to the street and the surrounding area.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasThe house was banal and characterless and in a very bad condition. The adjacent stables and barn were much more powerful in volume. Their massiveness immediately appealed to everyone, but they did not contain any comfort, nor the technical construction to be able to rebuild correctly. Yet we wanted to get started with that distinctive and solid brick structure, and especially with the impressive double gable on the left. Furthermore, we felt it was important that this brick feeling in the home should be felt. We chose to empty the buildings completely and to keep the solid carcass as a mantle, and to build within it a maximum prefabricated and insulated volume. This allowed us to optimize a ‘protected volume’ even more stringently than the EPB requirements. The solid carcass is functional because it forms a first acoustic buffer against the environment.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasSave this picture!Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasIn this way the result meets our vision: modern living arises from desires, needs, requirements, the site, … Design has a causal connection, is self-evident and not gratuitous or linked to iconic designs.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasWe took this decision together with the owner during the design process. The essence of the existing building is a strong witness of the past. We wanted to preserve the created ruin and also its specific function in all, namely the mantle of the insulated living cocoon. Both complement each other and determine the end result. The zinc profile plate cladding refers to the basic material that used to be used regularly at farms as roofs for for example open air storages.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasThe internal structure is simple: a thick concrete slab on the ground, a steel skeleton with steeldeck floors. Walls and roofs were covered with standard industrial insulation panels. Both were then fully insulated on the inside and finished with plasterboard. On the outside, the façades were further finished with zinc profiled sheets, and also on the flat roofs was extra insulation added. The floors of the ground floor are in polished concrete on top of a continuous sprayed Polyurethane insulation layer. This structure was needed to be able to build a perfectly thermally and acoustically isolated cocoon within the brick structure. An additional advantage of this method on top of the concrete slab, is that it is a dry method from start to finish.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasThe building became more stringent than the standard air-tight norms. A heat pump, connected to depth drilling pipes, controls the heating: underfloor heating on the ground floor and low temperature radiators on the first floor. In the future, energy can be generated in other ways. For example, the boiler is already equipped to work on solar panels. The client also opted for a ventilation system C. And the orientation is very favorable. North West on the closed street side, and East South on the back.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasThe long entrance is the perfect example of our philosophy that a self-evident circulation is more than a circulation zone alone. This space is also an elongated cloakroom and storage room. This does not stand out, because the separating closet wall is pushed into the building like a piece of furniture. The light from the large window at the end automatically lures the visitor up to there, and gives you a last look at the front yard before you enter the privacy of the house. The staircase stands as a slightly hinged element between the front and rear volume, emphasized by two-storey high windows. There you look through the building both inside and out. All day functions were directed to the garden side with their view. Night functions and storage facilities were placed on the street side. The desired view can be experienced at the rear in both the kitchen, the dining room and the sitting room, and is even reinforced in the mezzanine and living space. The covered terrace next to the kitchen and the garden shed are both deliberately integrated into the main volume.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasSimplicity, honesty and uniformity are the starting points. The worktop in the kitchen is in honed black granite and the cabinets in a tropical FSC veneer. The concrete floor on the ground floor was a wish of the builder and brings peace to this complete level. It is also used outside for the terraces, thus anchoring the building on the surrounding grounds. The floors of the first floor are in wood, and the bathroom walls in glass mosaic. These are the simple ingredients of the recipe: brick, polished concrete, glass, wood, all fair and pure applied.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasFirst and foremost the courage of the client to go along in the story of confrontation between present and past, and to show the contrast between existing massiveness and light fill-in structure. Thereafter the fixed framed view that you can experience to the maximum within the walled lines. And last but not least: since the move, this family always has a wonderful holiday feeling when they get home.Project gallerySee allShow lessSliding Chapel / Kieran DonnellanSelected ProjectsGuangxi Culture & Art Center / gmp ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Grimbergen, BelgiumLocation to be used only as a reference.

Yet another death in Cleveland jail

first_imgClevelandOn Nov. 9 Shone Trawick became the third person to die in Cleveland’s Cuyahoga County Jail this year and the 12th jail death since June 2018. Trawick is the first casualty to be blamed on violence by another prisoner. Those in nearby cells reportedly screamed for help on hearing the assault.Demonstrators gather outside the Cuyahoga County Jail, May 29. Since the protest, three more people have died in the jail. WW photo: Martha GrevattPreventable deaths were previously attributed to overdose, suicide and inadequate medical care. Lea Rayshon Daye, a 28-year-old Black trans woman, died last August in her cell. Michael Wormick died in July. Both were homeless at the time of their arrest.Daye had written a letter, found in her cell by her mother, intended to expose human right violations including inedible and inadequate food and substandard medical care.Beatings by guards — not by other incarcerated people — have led to multiple lawsuits. The same week that Trawick’s death was reported, Jasper Muldrow Jr. sued the county over the 2018 traumatic beating of his mentally ill son, Jasper Muldrow III. The jail officer, Charles Enoch, who instigated the assault, was recently sentenced to a year probation with no jail time. Four other guards who joined Enoch in attacking Muldrow have not been charged.The jail’s scandalous conditions and high rate of deaths led to the formation of the Coalition to Stop the Inhumanity at the Cuyahoga County Jail in December 2018. Regular protests have taken place outside the downtown jail for almost two years. The Coalition joined LGBTQ+ and homeless advocates in a joint online press conference (covered by Workers World) after Daye’s death.What drew media national attention to the county jail, however, was not the deplorable conditions. It was the widely-hailed decision to shrink the jail population to limit COVID-19 spread. But many prisoners were then transferred to state prisons that were COVID hotspots. Now the county jail population, previously subjected to massive overcrowding that intensified spread of the virus, is again nearing capacity.It is possible that jail authorities will use Trawick’s tragic death to impose collective punishment — such as lockdowns and harsher restrictions — on all 1,500 people now housed at the county jail.Everything happening at the Cuyahoga County Jail is another argument for prison abolition and another reason to “free them all.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In connection with the settlement, the company announced it is recording a $150 million addition to its fourth-quarter legal reserves.The agreement remains subject to final approvals by both parties.FHFA did not release a statement on the settlement, though a public affairs officer confirmed the language in the SEC filing.Morgan Stanley is the eighth bank to settle with FHFA out of 18 named in a legal complaint filed in 2011 on behalf of the GSEs.

The Council’s eight-member agencies are engaging with governments at the local, state, and tribal level. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) released its 2020 priced out estimates report and it casts an ominous shadow over the future fate of home prices. Data shows that if the average price for a new home raises by just $1,000, at least 158,857 homeowners would be entirely priced out of the housing market. According to the report, homeowners would no longer be able to qualify for the mortgages based on their current incomes. These statistics stretched across the nation, showing that although the homeowners would have been able to quality before the increase, following the rise in home prices, they were kicked out of contention.The report also broke down the states and metropolitan areas would be most affected by this pricing out predicament, as it varied widely across the nation. This wide-scale makes sense, as most of the factors that contributed to certain areas being priced out more than other involved the sizes of the local population living within the areas, as well as the affordability of the new homes.  Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Morgan named new E911 director

first_img Email the author Morgan said the biggest challenge for Pike County E911  is the disconnection of the county’s systems.“Right now, you have the Troy Police Department, the Pike County Sheriff’s Department and the Brundidge Police Department all answering and dispatching the calls that come in,” Morgan said. “And that does not include Haynes Ambulance, the state troopers and Troy University.”With Troy and Brundidge police departments and the Pike County Sheriff’s Department all on different systems, there is a disconnect, Morgan said, and that could result in a loss in response time.Morgan said there is interest in and dedication to improving the emergency services. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Print Article You Might Like Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Next UpHis experience there includes management of radio, phones and computers. He also directed the drug program and the acquisition of a million-dollar radio system.Morgan said his attraction to Pike County E911  was ability of all those involved to work together.“Chris Dozier, former Pike County E911 director, called and asked me to apply,” Morgan said. “I talked with a lot of people and they said there is a lot of room for improvement but everyone is willing to work together to get things done. Everyone is on the same page in wanting the E911 system to be as good as it can be.” Morgan named new E911 director “All those involved are willing to work together,” he said. “I have spoken to each location and they have all agreed that something needs to be done and they are willing to do whatever it takes.”Looking down the road, Morgan said the Pike County Commission is considering the benefits of an E911 building for Pike County.“To consolidate all of the agencies into one would be of great benefit to all Pike County citizens,” Morgan said. “From there, Pike County E911 would provide better training and quality assurance and also increase the ability to handle a surge of calls.Right now, in Brundidge there is only one dispatcher on duty so only one call could go out. With the consolidation of the agencies’ line slots, those additional slots could ultimately save lives.An E911  building would cost around $5 million but the benefits would far exceed the cost, Morgan said. “The Pike County Commission would be looking to two-and-a-half years for full completion but the staff and dispatchers could possibly move in sooner.”Morgan, his wife and two children, ages 3 and 9 months, will make their home in Troy. They are looking forward to being an active and involved part of the community.
