Photographs:  Marko ZoranovičText description provided by the architects. The presented single-family house is built in the village of Suha, in the suburbs of a famous medieval town, Škofja Loka in Slovenia. The building is built as a replacement structure on the site of a former farm building which represented the eastern side of a unified space of a farm courtyard. Due to the cultural heritage regulations the new building has a gabled roof and follows the gauges of maximum allowed building dimensions of the demolished structure. The investor of the new building is the farm owner’s son, who is academically educated and therefore has very urban housing needs in terms of the program of the house, which is located in a traditional rural area.

The building has a basement, a ground floor and first floor. It is positioned perpendicular to the river slope. In this way the basement opens towards the lower river terrace, while the ground floor is open – with a wide glass surface – towards the farm courtyard, which lies on the upper river terrace. The first floor with the sleeping rooms is facing east. Building’s public access is from the south side via accessible route, offering both access on foot and access with a car to the garages located in the basement. Along the longer, east side an external staircase leads to the main entrance. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičThe west side of the building is immersed into the existing grassy slope, where the Japanese-style garden stairs lead to the grassy surface in front of the living room on the ground floor of the object. In this way the building is well integrated into the site. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičSuch position of the building maintains the urbanistic image and roundedness of the farm courtyard which is surrounded, like a large atrium, by the homestead owner’s buildings and the new houses of his children. The cross-section of the building is in the shape of the letter ‘Z’ with the ground floor completely open towards the courtyard on the west side of the building, while the first floor faces towards the east side of the building. The program division of the building into floors is simple and logical. The basement floor features a large garage, a storage room, fitness, sauna, a boiler room and a utility room. From here the stairs lead to the ground floor and further to the first floor. The ground floor is a long, rectangular shape. On its narrower, north side, the staircase and main entrance are located, along with the doorway and a toilet. The remaining large unified space is dedicated to the program of kitchen, dinning room and living room. This space opens through a 12-meter-wide unsupported window to the ‘atrium’ of the house from where picturesque views open to the river and the old town. This is actually a ‘balcony’ room with a view. Save this picture!section 02From the ground floor the staircase leads to the first floor and into a longitudinal corridor along the west side, featuring a long, panoramic window which allows views of the town panorama. The east side of the corridor is dotted with the sleeping and ‘working’ rooms of children and parents with corresponding bathrooms. The entire eastern side of the corridor is lined with wardrobes. The parents’ bedroom has a separate bathroom and a south-facing panoramic window which allows picturesque views of the surroundings from the level of the bed. Save this picture!site planThe building construction is made of reinforced concrete, the partition walls are brick and the roofing is made of wood. Above the ground floor, a more complex bridging is realized for the purpose of the large ground-floor panoramic window. The external load-bearing walls are insulated with 25cm thick insulation, on which white plaster is placed. The zinc roof is light grey in colour. A glass projecting roof is installed over the building’s main entrance. The green ‘terrace’ in front of the living room is equipped with a wide walking surface made of teak wood. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičThe heating is a combination of under-floor heating, recuperator, heat pump and two geothermal bore holes. The low energy house has minimal electric energy consumption. Because of its low energy consumption, the house has apertures only where they are needed, or where additional views of the surroundings are thus enabled.Save this picture!sketch 02Project gallerySee allShow lessGlobal Holcim Awards 2012 WinnersArticlesSOILED: Platescrapers / CARTOGRAM Architecture + Urban DesignArticles Share CopyHouses•Slovenia Photographs CopyAbout this officeArhitektura d.o.o.OfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSloveniaPublished on April 04, 2012Cite: “Suha Private House / Arhitektura d.o.o.” 04 Apr 2012.

Text donations up 32% in a year to almost £50m

Drivers of growth highlighted in the review include the higher donations individuals can now donate by text. This follows 2018’s lifting of the previous limit of £20 per donation via premium SMS to £30.PSA’s research also pointed to the growth in mobile donations outside of telethon events, with industry participants suggesting that promotion of premium SMS as a donation channel during telethon events has had a positive effect on broader consumer awareness, as well as an indirect positive impact on the number of individuals opting to subscribe to charities and make regular donations via premium SMS.However, the report states, while 2018/19 saw a substantial increase in donation totals, these can vary year to year due to some key charity telethon events only occurring every two years. For example, in 2018–2019 across all spending channels, an additional £33.9 million was raised through telethons, compared to that raised in 2017–2018.Overall, PSA found, the phone-paid services market grew by £90 million last year, and was valued at £630.9 million: up from 2017/18’s £540.5 million, and largely driven by Operator Billing.  560 total views,  2 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Chancellor’s town hall holds potential for students to spark change

Linkedin Olivia Wales TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history + posts Lessons of perseverance ‘Horned Frogs lead the way’: A look at TCU’s ROTC programs printDespite a consistent low attendance, students who attend Chancellor Victor Boschini’s annual town hall have sparked changes on campus. “After every [town hall] we look at changing something; something little or something big,” Boschini said. Throughout the past eight years, students have advocated for extended weekend library hours, extended Market Square hours and the creation of new food options in the King Family Commons, Boschini said.Chancellor Boschini speaks at his annual town hall in March 2013. Photo by TCU 360 Students can meet with Boschini at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Dee J. Kelly Center at his spring student town hall. Typically, students ask questions about the increasing tuition price, the core curriculum and the future of TCU, Boschini said. The town hall was created to resolve student protests after a 6.5 percent tuition hike in 2011 that raised tuition to $32,400. Michael Millican, TCU alumnus, led a group of around 50 student-protestors who stood on the steps of Sadler with posters in November 2011. Students protest an increase in tuition without transparency at the Occupy Sadler protest in November 2011. Photo courtesy of TCU 360“The event was just a very quick show of strength,” Millican said. “There were quite a few media outlets present and probably 30 to 50 students.”Occupy Sadler capitalized on the political buzz of the simultaneous Occupy Wall Street protest, which captured the media’s attention.To end Occupy Sadler, Boschini held his first town hall and has held separate town halls for students and faculty in the past eight years. Chancellor Boschini spoke to students on the steps of Sadler in November 2011 at his first town hall. Photo by TCU 360While TCU did not increase merit-based scholarships in proportion to tuition increases, as the Occupy Sadler protest demanded, Millican sees a lasting impact from his efforts.“I would like to think the upcoming town hall is an offshoot of our efforts all those years ago,” Mullican said. “We did what we did because we love TCU and hated to see the university price existing students out so cold-heartedly.”However, the issue of increasing tuition without paralleled increases in merit-based scholarships has not disappeared.The TCU Board of Trustees has already voted to increase tuition for the 2019-2020 school year by 4.9 percent from $46,860 to $49,160. Boschini said he hopes to receive new ideas from students at the upcoming town hall.“It’s less like people grinding an axe and more like people promoting a new idea, which is good,” Boschini said.

Lifeboat e-learning course will save lives and money

first_imgLifeboat e-learning course will save lives and moneyOn 14 Jan 2003 in Personnel Today The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is teaching vital lifesaving skillsvia e-learning, in an effort to improve training and reduce costs. Chris Wilkinson, operations training manager at RNLI, said e-learning offerscost-effective, flexible and verifiable teaching. He estimates that the package, designed by Gossip Multimedia, will save theRNLI £80,000 in the first year alone. “Ordinarily, the RNLI would need to cover the cost of the trainersvisiting the 230 lifeboat stations around the coasts of the UK and Republic ofIreland,” he said. “In addition, crew members visit the headquartersfor training days, involving travel expenses and a loss of time spent on duty. “With the e-learning package, crew members can learn at lifeboatstations or even at home at their own convenience.” The e-learning package shows the 4,500 crew members how to deal with variouslife-threatening situations including survival at sea, man overboard, effectsof the cold, and extinguishing engine room fires. Crew members learn lifesaving techniques through interactive videosimulations, and are tested through a series of multiple-choice questions.Students’ results are provided at the end of the course, which can be monitoredfor appraisal and verification purposes. The RNLI is planning four more e-learning courses for next year. Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Predicting total ozone based on GTS data: applications for South American high-latitude populations

first_imgA regular occurrence during the 1990s has been the excursion of the edge of the springtime Antarctic ozone hole over the southernmost region of the South American continent. Given the essential role of atmospheric ozone in absorbing incoming solar ultraviolet radiation, the populations in this area are thus exposed to much higher ultraviolet-B irradiance than is normal for this time of year. The authors report here on a simple technique that might be used to forecast these low ozone episodes, based upon data readily available on the World Meteorological Organization Global Telecommunications System. Using this technique, total ozone during October 1991 at Punta Arenas, Chile, is predicted with a root-mean-square error of 34.4 DU (12.8%) and a mean error of 14.8 DU (5.5%).last_img read more
