This is a Reconstruction of a multi-family house with workshop rooms underneath in the area Seefeld of the city of Zurich. The house has been in a core zone since the new regulations. Therefore the outlines of the existing volumes are protected and the project had to be developed in collaboration with the conservation of monuments.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingThe project is a contextual dialogue with history, the house is 170 years old. The historic, massive stone walls were the starting point for applying new contemporary forms of living – fresh typologies: 5 small apartments in the ‘house’ and 4 residential ateliers in the former workshops.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingSave this picture!© Bruno HelblingHouse Z22 The dwelling house is a townhouse built 170 years ago. The natural stone walls were created so long ago, but even then the walls were plastered. Now we have removed the original plaster layers and this led to a raw state of the natural stone walls, which never existed. It is a reference to the material, the construction and to the ‘work’ itself, how was it made?The architectonic-social aspect, the bourgeois house of the time, is playing a minor part but it is still the same house from the outside.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingIn a confined space, we have developed a flowing, free-flowing space along the natural stone walls. A new typology of ‘promenade architecturale’ in a confined space, where, depending on the social structure and the course of the day, the programs unfold and communicate with the periphery, the natural stone wall.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingThe built in light weight strucures are plastered with basic plaster – and have a rocky appearance.

The dialogue on the historical context consists in the reference of the ‘work’, how and by whom was it made – at that time large stone blocks were stacked together – today, topographies were formed from reinforced concrete.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingIt’s about the craft.All the elements were put into the raw original state or it was rebuilt raw – a tribute to the material – without hierarchization.

Receive email alerts Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media News April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information IndiaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the violence that members of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) used against two employees of the English-language daily Rising Kashmir, Mohammad Jaffar and Abdul Qayoom, in Peerbagh, in the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir, on 20 July.RWB is also disturbed to learned that Internet and 3G mobile networks were blocked in Jammu and Kashmir on 18 July after members of the Border Security Force (BSF) shot six demonstrators during a protest against the BSF’s recent intrusion into a mosque.“We are outraged by this police attempt to block information in Peerbagh and the violence used to achieve their goal,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We hope that the internal investigation being carried out under the command of a police superintendent quickly identifies the police officers involved in attacking journalists.”“Given that certain local media say that BlackBerry is about to provide the Indian authorities with the ability to intercept Blackberry Messenger instant messaging, emails and attachments in real time, we urge the provincial government to explain its suspension of the Internet and 3G networks on 18 July and to put a stop to this kind of measure for good, because it isolates the region and constitutes a grave violation of the free flow of information.”Jaffar and Qayoom were on their way to the place where their newspaper is printed in order to collect the final version of the latest edition on 20 July when they were stopped by the police, who had been deployed in large numbers. They were then beaten by both members of the police and the CRPF.“They kicked us, abused us and threatened us with dire consequences if we came again,” Rising Kashmir quoted Qayoom and Jaffar as saying. Jaffar had to be taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries. The vehicle used for transporting copies of not only Rising Kashmir but also Buland Kashmir and Sangarmal was later allowed to collect the newspapers following intervention by Superintendent Budgam Mohammad Arshad, who said he had begun an investigation into the incident.The authorities routinely refuse to issue journalists with a laissez-passer when curfews are in force in the state, as many journalists who have tried to visit the region have reported.Online censorshipTwo days before this incident, on 16 July, Internet and 3G mobile networks were suspended throughout the Kashmir Valley after the BSF shot six civilians. The government denied ordering the suspension but local operators reported receiving verbal instructions to suspend services as a precaution.“We received a verbal communiqué to take down the GPRS and 3G services,” a representative of BSNL, the leading telephone and Internet operator, told the Kashmir Reader on condition of anonymity. “The speed of the broadband connections has also been reduced,” he addedThe authorities often suspend Internet and phone services in Jammu and Kashmir in an attempt to rein in mounting protests. They did so during an uprising in the valley in 2010, when calls for protests were circulating online.Violence against journalists has been on the increase for several weeks in India. In one of the latest recent cases, news photographer Gyandev Lokhande was attacked by members of the Congress Party in Betul, in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, while taking photos at a candidate selection meeting on 18 July. He was taken unconscious to a local hospital. Later the same day, police arrested three people under of Section 307 of the Penal Code on suspicion of trying to murder Lokhande.India is ranked 140th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

NewsCouncil calls for review of rent supplement limitsBy John Keogh – January 22, 2015 818 Facebook Linkedin Alleyway to be closed due to anti-social behaviour by Kathy [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK City and County Council is to contact Environment Minister Alan Kelly, to request a review on rent supplement caps in Limerick after it heard that families are unable to find properties, even at the maximum rates.Sinn Féin councillor Malachy McCreesh, who tabled the motion calling on the council to ask for the review, said that “unrealistic rates are causing a real housing crisis and forcing many people including families into homelessness”.“There are simply no properties to rent at the limits allowed. For instance a single person is only allowed a maximum of €375 per month, a couple with two children are allowed a rent supplement of €550. There are no properties available to rent in Limerick for these rates.“A recent survey has shown that rents in Limerick have increased over six per cent in 2014 whilst the rent caps remain the same,” added the Limerick West councillor.His party colleague, Séighin Ó Ceallaigh, remarked: “Young people’s social welfare has been cut to €100 a week, they can’t get rent allowance, and won’t be able to afford a 20 per cent deposit to buy a home, so where are they supposed to live?“Well, it seems that this government are pushing them to live in Australia or Canada, because the government know that many young people simply can’t afford to stay in Ireland.”Fianna Fáil councillor Kieran O’Hanlon told Monday’s meeting of the Metropolitan District that people he has taken to meet with housing officials “are quite demoralised because there’s little or no hope for somebody looking for housing”.He added: “We need a presentation from the housing department. We need to know how many people are on the waiting lists, and a breakdown of the categories, how long they’ve been on the list, and what reasonable chance have they got of getting a home?”His party colleague James Collins remarked: “Regardless of the market conditions, we’ve got to deal with it. If rents are rising it’s up to us to come up with a scheme that will provide housing to those in need.“We need to ensure the officials tell us what challenges they’re having with the HAP scheme or social housing in general, and if it’s in our power, hopefully we might be able to do something about it.”Council members also agreed that representatives from the housing department would attend the next meeting of the Metropolitan District to focus on issues relating to social housing and derelict sites.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Five Housing Scenarios That Promote Upward Mobility Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News A report from the Urban Institute suggests policymakers and housing advocates should aim to not only prevent evictions, foreclosures, and homelessness, but also should put safeguards in place to better protect people from the next housing crisis and, authors say, “bolster resilience in their path to upward mobility.””People will emerge from this economic recession deeply scathed: way below and way behind where they were before the pandemic,” wrote research assistant Elizabeth Champion and research associate Megan Gallager, who authored the paper. “We should put safeguards in place now to better protect people from the next housing crisis and bolster resilience in their path to upward mobility. And temporary financial support is not enough. For households to advance beyond the inequitable, pre-pandemic status quo, policymakers and practitioners should create housing recovery strategies that advance holistic upward mobility.”Below are the five “housing outcomes,” as determined by the researchers, ” beyond supporting housing affordability and stability, that, as a “bundle,” have the power to advance a households’ upward mobility. These items, they say, represent a pivot “from an emergency response to a housing recovery that advances holistic mobility from poverty.”Housing affordability—it can promote multiple dimensions of mobility, the authors explain. “Low housing costs can allow a household to accumulate savings and wealth,” they noted.Housing stability—instability, or frequent moves, can negatively affect the financial and physical health of a household, but stability allows people to make investments in their communities, social relationships, health, and education. Say the researchers, “rent subsidies, eviction moratoriums, and mortgage forbearance programs all encourage housing stability.”Housing quality—this can have long-term effects on a family’s autonomy and economic success. “The quality of housing can also affect energy efficiency, creating a larger economic burden for households,” the researchers said. “Building code enforcement, lead abatement programs, and energy efficiency standards can help improve housing quality outcomes.”Home equity—housing that builds wealth can offer homeowners a resource for investments in education, health, and other opportunities, according to the institute’s study.”Many federal, state, and local policies and programs are intended to support homeownership and home equity,” they wrote, “and certain demonstrations and evaluations, like the MicroMortgage Marketplace, seek to expand lending and increase sustainable homeownership for low- and moderate-income households in low-cost markets across the country.”Neighborhood context—though the specific ingredients that render a neighborhood ‘high opportunity’ are still being explored, qualities that reflect a neighborhood’s ability to promote upward mobility include levels of segregation and income inequality, along with other aspects of health, employment, education, housing, and transportation, according to the institute’s study.”Together, a neighborhood’s set of resources, opportunities, and characteristics can either boost or inhibit upward mobility for residents,” the researchers noted. “Deconcentrating and declustering lower-cost housing could expand neighborhood choices for very low–income people and their ability to move to high-opportunity neighborhoods.”The entire study and methodology can be accessed at urban.org/urbanwire.

Conservative MP Eddie Hughes yesterday successfully introduced a bill into parliament that will see the UK’s system of leasehold ground rents overhauled and some 100,000 trapped owners freed to sell their homes.Introduced via a Ten Minute Rule Motion, Hughes’ Ground Rent Leasehold Properties Bill passed its first reading and will now attempt to make it through a second reading today.The Bill has a good chance of becoming law; it is supported by Housing Minister Heather Wheeler, who was in parliament to hear Hughes propose the legislation.Measures within the bill will include a cap on ground rents and to make property developers liable for the legal costs of leaseholders seeking to vary their contracts.“Tens of thousands of people across the country are in this position. And it’s simply not the right.”Both issues have been massive bones of contention for campaigners, who claim many landlords use clauses allowing doubling ground rents and variation charges to extract exorbitant fees from leaseholders.These in turn often mean mortgage companies will not grant loans to buyers, leaving their owners trapped.During his speech Hughes documented the practical problems this has for many leaseholders: “Imagine for a moment you own a lovely apartment with your family, or perhaps even a recently built house and have lived there quite happily for a few years,” he said.“But you decide it’s time to move, maybe because of schools or work, or to move up the property ladder. You’re primed and ready to go. But the estate agent asks for a copy of your leasehold agreement, and there in its footnotes, you get hit with the fact you cannot sell your property, you’re trapped.Hughes will be helped by several MPs to draft the bill including Hunters’ Chairman Kevin Hollinrake.
