A 68 square metre compact 2 bedroom mews house and enclosed courtyard of 11 square metres in Highgate. This 2 storey brick house faces onto a quiet cobbled mews. Its 90 square metre site, on land to the rear of a 5 story locally listed building, was formerly occupied by a disused garage and derelict garden. It sits amongst a patchwork of rear fenced off gardens, garages, mews houses and ad-hoc rear ad-ons and a recently completed house, also by Russell Jones. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerOriginally a decrepit backland area, of run down and disused garages and a haven for crime and fly tipping, the location is now gradually developing into a secluded residential enclave. The project was designed and developed with an economy of visual, spatial and structural means. The material palette and the design were kept intentionally simple. The volumes were handled in such a way as to make the most of a small site constrained by overlooking neighbours on most elevations, resulting in a building that has an overall sense of space and calm infrequently seen in properties of this size in London. The careful selection and crafted use of materials create an essential quality that isn’t apparent in the materials themselves. The resulting home, although compact, feels spacious and special. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!Plan 0Save this picture!© Rory GardinerOn the ground floor the covered main entrance provides direct access to an open plan living, kitchen and dining area. This area opens out onto a rear courtyard via floor to ceiling glazing which provides a physical and visual continuation of the space. The paving stones form a continuous surface from the front external entrance through the internal areas and out into the rear courtyard. At the point of entry an external bicycle, services and recycling store is provided and, adjacent the door, a full height obscured glazed window. To the rear is a ground floor WC with laundry cupboard. The first floor is accessed via a single flight stair hovering beside the brick wall. On the first floor are 2 bedrooms, each with built-in storage, and a bathroom. Dormer and skylights are carefully positioned to bring daylight in to the interior. Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionIn the courtyard a small niched area is incorporated into the brickwork wall for residents to place candles or herbs and plants to enliven the courtyard place. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThe choice of building material for this small Mews House in Highgate was influenced by the original context, and the ongoing development of the mews into a new residential enclave. The prominent gable fronted terrace that faces the A1 carriageway on one side, presents itself to this backland location as a continuous wall of punctuated London Common Brickwork. Discussion with the Haringey Planning department led to a selection of a light coloured brick and mortar for new buildings in the mews, as a contrast to the weathered and dirty commons behind, to unify and instil a sense of continuity to the new developments in the mews, and also to increase light levels along the cobbled passage. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerWienerberger Marziale was initially used in the Mews on another project by Russell Jones and continued as the primary material for the small house. Marziale was selected for all external and internal structural walls, and precast concrete paving stones in a light tone to match the brickwork were used throughout the ground floor interior and exterior. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThe quality of the brickwork has been enhanced through the use of a carefully selected mortar, using white cement, lime and washed river sand, and a subtle manipulation of the surface texture using a method known in Scandinavia as ‘Sækkeskuring’; A similar finish, known as ‘bagging’ was popular in Australia in the 1960s and 70s. This surface finish was appreciated as a way of creating a more monolithic Architecture, without losing the identity of each and every brick. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerDouglas Fir was used in the first floor rooms and for the entrance joinery. Douglas Fir treads and fir faced structural plywood were used for the stair. To these, white oil was applied as the finish. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThe building includes underfloor heating throughout and, built to level 3 Code for Sustainable Homes, makes use of a rainwater harvesting system and photovoltaic panels. Project gallerySee allShow lessRural Hotel Complex / Ideo arquitecturaSelected ProjectsHigh School with international sections of Noisy-le-Grand/Bry-sur-Marne / Ateliers 2…Selected Projects Share The building contractor: ArchDaily Manufacturers: Reeve Wood, Sunsquare, Velfac, Wienerberger, Blanc de Bierges, Contour Casings, K and D Joinery Save this picture!© Rory Gardiner+ 32 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796791/mews-house-russell-jones Clipboard Photographs:  Rory Gardiner Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more

Letter to Libyan constitution drafting committee

first_img News LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Protecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independenceProtecting sources ImpunityPredatorsFreedom of expression On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom Follow the news on Libya RSF_en News February 23, 2021 Find out more LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Protecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independenceProtecting sources ImpunityPredatorsFreedom of expression Organisation June 24, 2020 Find out more Ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), Libya is one of the world’s most dangerous places for journalists. A constitution guaranteeing press freedom, the confidentiality of sources and the safety of journalists would send a powerful message to all those who constantly violate the freedom to inform, and would do much to help combat the prevailing impunity for crimes of violence against journalists. With this aim, eleven human rights organizations have sent the following open letter to the members of the Libyan constitution drafting committee. 2 November 2017 We, the human rights organizations who sign this letter, congratulate the committee that is drafting the Libyan constitution, the latest draft of which was signed in Al Baydah on 29 July in the presence of 43 of the 60 members. We also praise the efforts so far undertaken by Libya’s parliamentarians, as the constitution is a cornerstone in the construction of a civilian and democratic state respectful of human rights, fundamental freedoms and pluralism. However, we have analysed the articles on freedom of expression and publication, on freedom of the press and media, on transparency and on the right to information and we have found that they fail to conform to international standards regarding freedom of expression. We are therefore submitting a number of recommendations designed to bring the draft constitution into compliance with Libya’s international obligations regarding the protection of freedom of the press and information, and in order to guarantee the rights and freedoms of Libya’s citizens and reflect the pluralism of its society. Insufficient guarantees for freedom of expression We note that the current draft of the constitution recognizes the right to freedom of expression in a limited manner. Many of its provisions restrict freedom of expression and recognize it only partially. Article 37 states in a vague manner that freedom of expression and publishing is a protected freedom. However, the international agreements to which Libya is party, in particular, article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, establish the principle of freedom of expression and imposes precise limits on the restriction of this freedom. Any restriction must comply with the criteria of legality, legitimacy and necessity. Article 37 should establish this principle in the same terms. The same article says that the state will take the necessary measures to protect the privacy of the individual and to combat hate speech, without providing a clear definition of these two terms. This article itself therefore contains a restriction on freedom of expression because it is vague about the limits of these rights. This also violates article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which affirms the right of all human beings to freedom of expression. This right includes the freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of one’s choice. Insufficient protection for media independence We welcome the desire to protect media pluralism and independence that is evident in article 38. However, the constitution must clearly define the means available to the state for limiting concentration of media ownership and guaranteeing pluralism in the expression of opinions. We also point out that the ban on provisional detention during trials of journalists does not suffice to guarantee full and complete freedom of expression. Similarly, protecting media companies from being dissolved by court order is not a sufficient guarantee against abusive restrictions on freedom of expression. The draft constitution should explicitly establish the High Media Council as a constitutional entity in a dedicated article. This should also define its composition, its responsibilities and the guarantees of its independence. The council’s sole role should be regulating the broadcast media. In this regard, article 163 on “other bodies” does not guarantee the independence of the media regulatory authorities. It also fails to satisfy the requirements of international standards. We remind the members of the drafting committee that, under article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (and the UN Human Rights Committee’s interpretation of this article in its General Comment No. 34), restrictions may only be imposed on freedom of expression when provision for them has been established by law. The restrictions must also be necessary and proportionate to the pursuit of one of the objectives defined in this article, which are respect of the rights or reputations of others, and protection of national security, public order, or public health or morals. Need to reformulate article on right of access to information Article 46 on transparency and the right of access to information provides for the freedom to receive, impart and exchange information, but it does not comply with the requirements of international standards. The guarantee by the state of the right of access to information must conform to international law, in particular the standards related to the right of access to information, to the protection of personal data, to combatting corruption and to transparency. Poorly defined restriction on rights and freedoms Article 65 on restricting the use of rights and freedoms lacks clarity and should specify that such restrictions must be envisaged by the law, must be necessary for the pursuit of a legitimate objective, and must be proportional to this objective. We are also concerned about the repeated reference to the Islamic Sharia in articles 6, 153 and 161 without reference to the international instruments relating to human rights and fundamental freedoms. A document as important as the constitution, involving rights and freedoms, should above all contain references to the relevant international standards and should explicitly state that religious values cannot interfere with the recognition and guarantee of these rights and freedoms. We would also like to express our dissatisfaction with the provisions on freedom of expression and information in Chapter II on rights and freedoms and in Chapter VII on constitutional entities, which contain concepts that are vague and unknown in international law. This lack of precision can obviously lead to arbitrary interpretations that violate human rights and fundamental freedoms. Main recommendations We urge the members of the Libyan constitution drafting committee and the members of the House of Representatives to: 1. Redraft articles 37 and 38 on freedom of information and publication, making a clear reference to article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which enshrines the principle of freedom of expression and information, while specifying that the use of this right must not be subject to prior control. 2. Provide for constitutional guarantees for press freedom and abolish prison sentences for media offences. 3. Redraft article 46 on the right of access to information in order to improve access and the dissemination of information in the media, which would make it possible to ensure transparency, combat corruption and safeguard the rights of journalists and the confidentiality of their sources in accordance with international standards. 4. Clarify the conditions under which use of the rights and freedoms stated in article 65 may be restricted. We suggest that this paragraph should refer to international law, under which any restriction must be envisaged by the law, must be necessary to the pursuit of a legitimate objective and must be proportional to this objective, so that no article can impair established human rights and fundamental freedoms. 5. Draft a constitutional provision guaranteeing full recognition of the High Media Council as a constitutional entity. The council would be responsible for regulating only the broadcast media and for granting licences to radio and TV stations. It should also be assured a consultative role on media legislation.

First jail sentence in Kurdish newspaper solidarity trials

first_img April 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en April 28, 2021 Find out more Credit OZAN KOSE / AFP News Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is alarmed to see that the Turkish authorities are stepping up their persecution of those who took part in a campaign of solidarity with the pro-Kurdish daily Özgür Gündem and that, for the first time, they have imposed an actual prison sentence on a participant, Murat Çelikkan. All previous jail sentences were suspended.The trial of RSF Turkey representative Erol Önderoğlu for participating in the same campaign is meanwhile due to resume on 8 June. Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News May 22, 2017 First jail sentence in Kurdish newspaper solidarity trials TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expression Newscenter_img Receive email alerts to go further Organisation Follow the news on Turkey TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expression Help by sharing this information News Çelikkan “has not shown enough remorse,” an Istanbul court said on 16 May when it announced that it was sentencing this journalist and human rights activist to 18 months in prison on a charge of “propaganda for a terrorist organization.” A total of 56 journalists, human rights defenders and intellectuals took part in the solidarity campaign, taking turns at being Özgür Gündem’s “editor for a day” from May to August 2016 because it had been hounded by the justice system. Forty-one of them were charged. Most of those whose trials are already over have been convicted on the same charge as Çelikkan. They include university academic Beyza Üstün, who was given a suspended 15-month jail sentence on 16 May. “This is the first time that one of this solidarity campaign’s participants has been sentenced to actual imprisonment and it is extremely disturbing,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We call for the convictions of Murat Çelikkan and Beyza Üstü to be overturned on appeal and for the withdrawal of all charges against the other participants, who just defended pluralism.” The articles cited in evidence against Çelikkan, published when he was “editor for a day” on 25 May 2016, were mostly reports on operations by the Turkish security forces in the troubled southeast of the country. One was about a Turkish conscript who deserted and joined the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) after an attack on pro-Kurdish activists. Thirteen of the campaign’s participants have so far been convicted of “propaganda for a terrorist organization” (the PKK) or “publishing its statements.” They have been given suspended sentences that, combined, so far total 11 years and 10 months in prison. They have also been fined a total of 50,000 Turkish lira (13,200 euros). The suspended sentence of 15 months in prison and fine of 6,000 lira that well-known composer and free speech advocate Şanar Yurdatapan had received was upheld on appeal on 14 April. When RSF representative Önderoğlu’s trial before the same court as Çelikkan resumes on 8 June, the prosecutor is expected to present his summing-up. If that happens, Önderoğlu’s lawyers will request an adjournment in order to prepare their speech for the defence. Önderoğlu is being tried along with Şebnem Korur Fincancı, the head of the Turkey’s Human Rights Foundation (TIHV), and the writer Ahmet Nesin. These three are the only ones to have been placed in pre-trial detention for their role in the solidarity campaign. That was last June, when they were held for ten days before being freed conditionally. They are facing up to 14 and a half years in prison on charges of PKK propaganda, condoning crime and inciting crime. Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, between Democratic Republic of Congo and the Sultanate of Brunei. The media freedom situation in Turkey was already worrying but it has become critical since the July 2016 coup attempt. Around 150 media outlets have been closed and more than 100 journalists are currently in prison.

A recent report from Corelogic, takes a look at what factors impact the appraisal process following severe natural disasters, and why homeowners affected by storms and other disasters may seek an appraisal. When a home is partially damaged, a homeowner may seek an appraisal to help support a diminution in value in order to seek a reduction in property taxes. These “as-is” property value opinions could be hard to quantify because the damage may impact the true market potential of the property.If a home is completely destroyed, it can create more challenges. It may be impossible to determine the home’s quality and condition prior to destruction, and some homes, such as those destroyed by wildfires, may not be able to adequately offer local sales comps. Even if a house is still intact, the damage on a surrounding area may still negatively impact homes value. Loss of vegetation and changes in market conditions due to natural disasters may play into a home’s value, despite a lack of damage. Additionally, the risk of further catastrophe may impact appraisals. Corelogic notes that the fear that hazards such as wildfires or floods may return in the near future may impact values and delay the rebuilding process.Corelogic also notes how policies can cause the values to vary, and that a policy is often determined not by the appraisal or assessment, but by the reconstruction costs, which unlike an appraisal, captures all of the additive costs associated with rebuilding after a loss. Without proper insurance, many homeowners impacted by natural disaster may be forced into foreclosure. CoreLogic’s 2019 Insurance Coverage Adequacy Report reveals how underinsurance can leave an impact on the lending industry.According to Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic, “The disruption of a family’s regular flow of income and payments, as well as substantial loss in property value, can trigger mortgage default; especially if homeowners are underinsured and cannot afford to rebuild.”Corelogic concludes that “if information is power, then having full disclosure of a property helps protect families and businesses from financial catastrophe.”Learn more about how to prepare for natural disasters at the 2019 inaugural Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium, at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. The Symposium provides an opportunity for national leaders and executives to engage in critical conversations on diligence and preparedness, so the next time a natural disaster strikes, the industry will be ready to lend the proper support.

Wintershall Dea to sell stakes in Nyhamna terminal and Polarled pipeline

first_img Image: Wintershall Dea to sell its Norwegian midstream infrastructure assets. Photo: courtesy of Wintershall Dea/Thor Oliversen. Wintershall Dea has signed deals to offload its stakes in two of its Norwegian midstream infrastructure assets – the Nyhamna terminal and the Polarled pipeline to focus on upstream activities in the country.Under the terms of the agreement, the German oil and gas company will sell its stake of around 5% in the Nyhamna terminal, a gas processing and storage facility, to Norwegian oil and gas company CapeOmega.In the 482km long Polarled gas pipeline, Wintershall Dea will sell its 13.2550% stake to Solveig Gas Norway, which is a co-owner of the Gassled midstream joint venture in Norway. The Gassled joint venture operates various land-based gas plants and pipelines that include the Polarled gas pipeline.Financial terms of the two deals were not disclosed.Located in Aukra, Møre og Romsdal, the Nyhamna terminal, was initially built to process gas produced by the Ormen Lange field. Since the fourth quarter of 2018, the gas processing plant has also been receiving volumes from the Polarled pipeline.Polarled, on the other hand, is the first pipeline on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) to cross the Arctic Circle. Completed in 2015, the Polarled pipeline transports gas to the Nyhamna gas terminal since the fourth quarter of 2018 after the Aasta Hansteen field was brought on stream.Operated by Gassco, Polarled has been designed for connecting additional developments in the area in the future.Wintershall Dea said that the transactions on the Norwegian Continental Shelf are part of a larger programme aimed at streamlining its global portfolio after the closing of the merger between Wintershall and DEA in May 2019.Wintershall Dea CEO comments on the sale of the midstream assetsWintershall Dea CEO Mario Mehren said: “The sale of these two assets is an important step in the direction of capturing value from active portfolio management. The transaction will allow us to streamline our business activities in Norway and focus our efforts on higher priority assets in our portfolio.”The transactions are expected to close by the year-end subject to approvals from the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and the Norwegian Ministry of Finance, said the German oil and gas company.
