Five small artificial islands mark the border between the suburban expansion of Almere Stad -the new neighborhood ‘Noorderplassen West’- and the nature area ‘Noorderplassen’. House with 11 views is located on one of these islands. Although the distinction between culture and nature is palpable, both are part of the same polder landscape. A landscape that had its origin on the design table and was created out of nothing.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinWith this context in mind, the villa was designed as an abstract white box, that stands on the island as an object. In the design historicizing architectural references were avoided since it would simply ignore the fact that this environment is new. A more abstract, conceptual approach was chosen, offering the freedom to experiment and to apply unconventional materials and construction plerincips.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe abstract architecture also offers the direct environment the freedom to develop its own identity.Save this picture!North facade and section B-B’White box
The client asked for a house with a industrial and loft-like appearance with a maximum floor area at a low building cost. In order to meet the clients wishes the house was built in an unconventional way: a building method which is normally seen in the construction of industrial halls.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinA steel frame clad with sandwich elements of corrugated steel and polyurethane insulation. This has resulted in the raw and industrial look of the design. The four floors have their own character and function. The ground floor is designed like a boathouse with a garage. From there the residents have direct access to the wooden deck and the water. The living spaces and the kitchen are located on the first floor, where the large windows on both sides of the house visually connect the front yard and the nature area the Noorderplassen at the back of the house. The second floor contains the private bedrooms and the top floor works as a multifunctional penthouse.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinFraming the landscape
The impressive view on the ‘Noorderplassen’ and the ‘IJsselmeer’ has inspired to create windows that frame different parts of the landscape. In the search for the right proportions of the windowframes, eleven 17th-century Dutch landscape-paintings served as a direct example. By showing the similarity between the landscape paintings and the view on the Noorderplassen, the specific qualities of the landscape such as the Dutch light are emphasized.
Because extra insulation and gypsum board was added to the innerside of the steelframe, the windowsills are extra deep. This offers the inhabitants the experience of sitting inside the view.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe windows all have an integrated sunscreen with an unique print. The graphic depicts a zoom in on the original painting with a color gradient over it.

The affiliate fee generated, at no extra cost to the donor, is then passed to the charity.In Care2Save’s case, it will pass all of this commission to two charities – 80% of it will go to the registered charity of the shopper’s choice, and 20% to the Care2Save Charitable Trust, which will distribute all profits to hospices and palliative care projects in the UK and around the world.Over 50 retailers are participating in the site including Debenhams, Boots, House of Fraser, WH Smith, Laura Ashley, O2, Monarch and BT.Care2Save was set up by Andrea Fragata Ladeira. She said: “There is a hidden pool of money online to which we have all, as consumers, added by clicking on a link or buying a product and as a result unknowingly created a sales commission for companies.“By taking on the entire UK marketplace, offering a one-stop-shop for all goods and services and allowing the consumer to simply nominate any UK charity of their choice, we believe we can fundamentally change the way the UK gives.”
Haitians in Port-au-Prince demand president resign.November 18 is the anniversary of the 1803 battle of Vertière, the decisive battle of the Haitian revolution in which an army of former slaves — most born in Africa — defeated the cream of the French army and guaranteed Haiti’s independence.On that anniversary this year, tens of thousands of Haitians took the opportunity to come out into the streets of Port-au-Prince and other big Haitian cities, including Aux Cayes, Jérémie, Petit-Goâve, Cap-Haïtien and Jacmel, to demand the government of President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe resign.The protesters accused the government of being corrupt and repressive and not working for the people’s needs. For example, the government has raised the price of gasoline, a basic necessity, even though its world price is falling sharply.The march in Port-au-Prince stepped off at 10 a.m. and headed through the northern suburbs toward the National Palace. After an incident in which rocks were thrown at some of the more prominent marchers, someone fired shots from a vehicle with government license plates. There was some confusion over who fired the shots — Haitian cops, National Palace security or hired-for-the-event gangsters. (Haïti Liberté, Nov. 21)Even though he knows justice will never be served under Martelly, Senator Moïse Jean-Charles announced to HPN Nov. 21 that he was going to file a formal complaint against the current administration for allowing an armed attack on a constitutionally protected activity,The shots killed two men. Their bodies were removed; one of the dead was tentatively identified later. Five were injured, according to AlterPresse Service. While the killings broke up the demonstration, the coalition that called it announced three new marches on Nov. 25, 28 and 29.It is becoming clearer and clearer that President Martelly is maneuvering to rule by decree after the parliament is dissolved Jan. 12, 2015, when the mandates of a third of the senators and all of the deputies expire.Kiko St. Rémy, Martelly’s brother-in-law, joined the marchers in the capital on Nov. 18. St. Rémy demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Lamothe, because Lamothe is corrupt and unjustly ordered the arrest of demonstrators in the past month.Lamothe is a U.S.-trained entrepreneur who has built up a major cell phone business in the Carribean, and is openly scheming to become the next Haitian president. St. Rémi is from Gonaïve and is part of the big-landlord faction of the Haitian bourgeoisie.The Haitian people despise both.Given the evident upswelling of anger among the Haitian people, the U.S. government, which has remained remarkably silent about the bloody violations of human rights in Haiti, will face a choice of supporting Martelly or Lamothe. The last thing that suits U.S. imperialist domination of Haiti is another massive, popular rejection of the current order there.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
WhatsApp Facebook Facebook Twitter Pinterest Pinterest A 29-year-old woman was arrested after she reportedly broke into her boyfriend’s apartment, broke his phone after he called 911 and punched him in the face. Amanda Guzman was charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony, and interfering with emergency services required for assistance, a class A misdemeanor. The reported incident happened at 7:24 a.m. Dec. 21 at the Ashford Odessa Square Apartments located at 222 N. Dixie Boulevard, an Odessa Police Department affidavit detailed. The complainant, identified as Gregory Newton, reportedly told officers that his girlfriend, Guzman, broke into his apartment. Newton stated he was sleeping when he heard his name called and heard a loud noise coming from his front door. Newton stated he saw Guzman standing in his living room, the affidavit stated. Newton stated he began calling 911 and spoke with dispatch before Guzman took the phone away from him. Newton stated he walked to the living room and saw his front door was forced open with damages. Newton reportedly told officers that he went to his neighbor’s apartment and told them to call the police due to Guzman having his phone. Newton stated Guzman got angry and threw the phone toward him, which caused it to break the screen. Newton stated Guzman grabbed him by his shirt and began “upper cutting” him on the face. Newton stated Guzman left the area after one his neighbors called the police, the affidavit stated. The neighbor stated she saw Guzman grab Newton from the short, pull him out of the apartment and punched him on the face. Officers reportedly saw the front door of Newton’s apartment had forced entry. Newton had a white ripped shirt, which was consistent with his shirt being pulled. Newton’s cellphone also had damage to the screen. Newton stated Guzman doesn’t live with him and didn’t have consent to enter his apartment located at 222 N. Dixie Boulevard. Guzman was booked into the Ector County Law Enforcement Center on Dec. 21, jail records show. She has two bonds totaling $22,000 and was still in custody as of Wednesday afternoon.

Facebook IndianaLocalNews Twitter Google+ Pinterest WhatsApp Elkhart County Consolidated Courts project moving forward Google+ By Jon Zimney – December 22, 2020 0 367 Twitter Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest (Photo supplied/Elkhart County Indiana) The Elkhart County Consolidated Courts project continued to move forward this month as eight design/build teams from across the nation were interviewed by the County’s Technical Review Committee. The committee further narrowed the field of potential design/build teams to three finalists last week.The three finalists will be interviewed again on Jan. 12 as the process to design and build a new facility for Elkhart County continues to move forward.Last month, the Elkhart County Council approved a request from the Elkhart County Commissioners to purchase 32 acres of land along Reliance Road in Goshen. This location, which is central to every city and town in Elkhart County, is where the estimated $80 million campus will be built.Elkhart County Government is committed to keeping constituents informed as the project moves forward. A website with frequently asked questions, key facts and an evolving timeline has been created as part of the process. The address is www.SmartCourtsProject.com.The idea of a consolidated Elkhart County Courthouse system goes back to 1992. The project has been discussed as a necessary improvement since that time.For the past two-and-a-half years, more than two dozen locations were studied by Elkhart County government as potential sites for the consolidated campus. The studies included sites in downtown Goshen and downtown Elkhart.In September, an initial bond agreement was approved in the amount of $35 million for the first phase in financing to purchase land, design and build the new courthouse.Last month, the Elkhart County Council unanimously approved the purchase of the 32 acre vacant property on Reliance Road in Goshen.

I’ve been shopping recently for a new pair of running shoes, and it’s been a bit of a Goldilocks scenario. This one was too big, that one was too small. I’m still not sure I’ve landed on just right.So hearing the vice president of Digital Design Transformation at Nike, Ken Black, speak at Dell EMC World was timely insight into the next-generation footwear – enabled by next-generation technology from Dell.“Shoe design may not sound like rocket science but let’s just say the ‘cobbler has evolved,’ so to speak and actually it’s rather cutting-edge these days,” Dave Altavilla of HotHardware said after hearing him speak.Valereie Vacante, founder of Collabsco, noted in Clausette that as a physical products company, visualization and realization of the end product are crucial for Nike.“At the heart of things we’ve always been makers. From the beginning we’ve been craftsmen, tinkerers, innovators,” Black said. “I think that has really been the thing that has enabled us to drive the performance and the esthetic of what we call modern sports.“One of the things I love the most is we really boil it down to a pretty simple goal. What we want to do is inspire the world with what we create. To help athletes do things they’ve never thought possible.”Almost twenty years after Dell launched our Precision line of workstations, customers are combining them with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to change the game in design and product development.In this environment, things that will become more premium and influence the speed and possibility of creation are:Instant visualizationImmediate collaborationRealtime fidelityContextual experienceSo our own designers and engineers worked together with customers on this view of what the future of design could be, and from that collaboration came Dell Canvas.Sarah Burkhart, the product manager for Dell Canvas described it as a “dual surface immersive creation device that has a ‘doing surface’ and a ‘seeing surface,’ plus touch, totem and pen.”Canvas works with all the software used by designers and other creatives like Adobe, Autodesk and Cakewalk, as well as the AR glasses seen in the video above. That’s because in addition to listening to what customers need, we’ve also been working with partners like Meta, who make those glasses, to enable immersive creativity for designers.We can’t do that alone. We need partners like Meta and Ultrahaptics to help us rethink how work gets done. Ultrahaptics is responsible for the spatial haptics technology allowing you to feel the holographic interface seen in the video.Author Mark Schaefer called it “magic” in his recent post, but as our latest commercials note, it’s not the kind of magic only seen in fairy tales. With seven technology leaders now together under the Dell Technologies umbrella, digital transformation becomes very real for our customers.Black explained that Nike’s digital transformation is about bringing dimension to the ideas that live in their designers’ minds, as quickly and beautifully as possible.“How do we get the brilliant idea that exists in each designers head out and in the world – to you – faster, better, more beautifully and more seamlessly?” he asked the audience. “It’s about the visualization. But being a physical product company, it’s also about the realization of that end product.”When asked how can technologies like Canvas, AR and haptics free up designers to think outside of what they are limited to today, Black said he thinks of that future as “hypernatural” – a more seamless and advanced form of what creators have always been doing.“This brings it all to your fingertips,” he said after the Canvas demonstration. “As you look at the video, what we love about being able to work in 2D and see it in 3D is as we work with our athletes, which is critical being able to co-create with someone like LeBron or KD, as they see an idea taking form, becoming that 3D shape, we really think will change the game.”You can watch the replay of Black’s time on stage, as well as the Canvas demonstration, on the Dell EMC World event website.
