DAGA Architects is invited by Beijing TV’s “NuanNuanDeXinJia” program again to redesign the new Hutong project. In the past two years, DAGA Architects has made many attempts in the renovation of old houses in Hutong, aiming in finding a balance between modern and traditional. While improving the life quality of the owners, they can also get more abundant and unique experience in the cramped small space. In addition to present effect, it focuses more on exploration of the possibilities of integration on classic and new styles.Save this picture!Glass house and the surrounding houses. Image © Wu TouThe renovation project is located in the Hutong of Dongsi North Street in Dongcheng District. The primary problem of the transformation is to leave privacy in the narrow space where many people lives. In fact, this is the inadaptability to the new life demands which was caused by the old buildings. The first step of the transformation is to rearrange the original space and organize the sequence relationships between both public and private spaces. However, the ancient Beijing Hutong mostly are adopted by public toilets, which are obviously inconvenient for peoples today. Therefore, the second step in the transformation is to solve the problems of public toilets.Save this picture!© Wu TouThe concept of “glass boxes” is embedded in the old buildings, the transparent glass curtain walls ensure adequate lighting throughout the day, therefore lighting efficiency of small space is greatly improved. At the same time, large windows can maximize the landscape value of the ancient Hutong buildings. The using of glass box will break the barrier and bring more possibilities to different attributes of spaces. Base on the characteristics of the glass,the box forms a strong contrast with the old bricks, thus metaphorizing the conflict and symbiosis between the historical and modern era.Save this picture!exploded axonometricThe owner of the house,Mrs. Cao, livesthe end of Hutong with her husband, daughter and their cat. Only 25 square meters of spaces are available for their daily living, work, study and entertainment. Through ingenious design techniques, we need to solve the problems of lighting, independent toilets and interactive public area in small space. While meeting the living needs of this three-member family, we inject new energy and lifestyles into the old house.Save this picture!The commune area, living/kitchen. Image © Wu TouWhile stepping into the house, the first thing we saw is the combination area of both living roomand the kitchen , by using white as our majority colour of the area , it makes the whole space indeed more spacious, bright and tidy. Customized built-in storage shelves integrate the two spaces and make full use of the built-in storage space. Simple lines perfectly hide the essential appliances in life, such as washing machines, lampblack machines and other large furniture. Storage shelves are placed on one side of the room and allow the open atrium to be the public area of the household. The combination of white and natural light makes the whole space brighter and warmer.Save this picture!Kitchen and master bedroom area.

By using the curtain as an outer shell, the texture of the space and the volume of the atmosphere have been improved.Save this picture!elevationSave this picture!Kitchen and master bedroom area.

We have also dug and built a bathtub for the family to experience the spa treatment. The bathroom went straight up to the roof and fully automatic skylight was installed above the roof. The bathroom use to refractive light from white bricks to improve its brightness and textureduring the day. When night falls, family members can also enjoy the night scenery.Save this picture!View from second level towards bathroom .

The attic of the house is an independent bedroom for children. The whole bedroom is painted in white just like other areas. She will have her own little paradise area for study and sleep. Through glass partitions and skylights, the amount of nature sunlight receives to the children’s bedroom has been improved, the wholeness of space has been extended as well., she will enjoy the first ray of sunshine during the day, while accompanying by stars at night.Save this picture!floor planFor the courtyard, the combination of glass bricks and the old traditional bricks has been used to separate the owner’s house with the neighborhood houses. While the lights glow warmly through thick glass bricks, the it gave a halo effect which can be seen clearly when night falls. Therefore the atmosphereof the entire space is greatly enhanced.Save this picture!© Wu TouBy in contrast with the traditional historical houses, climbable roof is added to indicates the new forms of designfeatures. Steel frame ladder structures can be used as a drying rack, the ladder can be lowered to create a platform to go up to the roof top, which also providesa space for leisure and entertainment. The radical glass box contrasts sharply with the Hutong, which distinguish the old and new design structures clearly.Save this picture!Climbable Glass rooftop platform.

Huge legal changes: but no guidelines

first_img HR professionals are today facing the most far reaching changes to employment relations in a generation without clear guidance from government.Experts are warning that employers are in danger of inadvertently breaking the law on Statutory Union Recognition because easy-to-follow guidance from the Government has not been made available. As unions geared up to target high-profile employers, such as McDonald’s, with recognition bids, personnel professionals were being steered towards technical notes on the legislation to help them deal with claims. But the 27,000 word explanatory notes on the DTI web site are considered almost as impenetrable as the law itself. Lawyers have called it the most complex yet in employment legislation. From today unions can gain automatic bargaining rights on pay, holidays and hours where half the workforce are members or 40 per cent vote for recognition in a ballot.David Yeandle, deputy director of employment policy at the Engineering Employers’ Federation, said the EEF is trying to produce its own guide.“Only a small number of employers and legal advisers will understand this law, it is not in a form that is user-friendly. “The Government should have produced a layman’s guide,” he said.Robbie Gilbert, chief executive of the Employers’ Forum on Statute and Practice, said few employers know that they only have 10 days to respond when they get a request from a union.“People need time to put systems in place to ensure requests are dealt with. It is not good enough that such an extremely big and sensitive change is being rushed in,” he said. “The Government should not have imposed this 6 June deadline, it should have allowed more time for guidance to come out.” Guidance on how the Central Arbitration Committee will deal with applications for recognition is also missing.It is due to come out this week. The CAC was unable to produce its guidance earlier because CAC members were only appointed by the DTI in April.A DTI spokeswoman said, “Longer explanatory notes, with detailed flow charts explaining the procedure were out last year. There is also a code of practice and information about the collective bargaining process. We are not planning to put anything else out.”www.legislation.hmso.gov.uk/acts/en/1999en26.htm Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.

Turning a mandate on clean energy into action

first_imgTom GilbertReThink Energy NJ Dear Editor: The new governor of New Jersey has a mandate to speed up our state’s shift to clean, renewable, homegrown energy like wind and solar. New Jerseyans have spoken. Nearly 90 percent of our registered voters feel renewable energy is important to New Jersey’s overall health. That was one of many encouraging findings from a recent Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMin poll, which also found that nearly 75 percent are willing to pay $5 to $10 more per month on their utility bills for energy generated from solar and wind. About four of five (78 percent) New Jerseyans support 80 percent of the state’s energy coming from renewable sources by 2050. 77 percent believe our state should invest more in developing clean energy sources rather than fossil fuels and pipelines (22 percent), with three in five (64 percent) saying New Jersey is moving too slowly in this area. Three-fourths (73 percent) favor developing offshore wind energy off the New Jersey coast. 67 percent of voters believe that renewables are a better way to create jobs, and that the jobs associated with pipelines are not worth the risk to our environment and health.These are strong numbers. All elected officials would love to have these approval ratings. But important steps remain for clean energy supporters to translate this mandate into action.It is not enough for voters to want clean energy – we must actively engage in the political process to make our voices heard. If you are concerned about climate change and care about clean energy, what’s going on in Washington DC is dismaying. But New Jersey can forge its own path on these issues as states lead the way to a clean energy future.The new governor and legislature must hear that New Jerseyans want, and expect, this change. It’s important to continue speaking against the multiple unneeded fossil fuel pipelines proposed for our state – like PennEast – that will increase harmful carbon emissions, and to continue speaking for clean and efficient energy. Moving to clean energy is a win for our environment and our economy. We can protect our air and water while creating thousands of good jobs through offshore wind, solar and energy efficiency. Voters must speak up and take action to make sure our elected leaders hear this message loud and clear. last_img read more

Midwesterner in the Mountains

first_img Photo courtesy of Eric Albitz Photography Blue Ridge Mountains Photo courtesy of Eric Albitz Photography Blue Ridge Mountains Photo courtesy of Eric Albitz Photographycenter_img Blue Ridge Mountains Blue Ridge Mountains Photo courtesy of Eric Albitz PhotographyBiking home from work, I often feel tired and spent. Regardless of how much I enjoy my work at Wilderness Adventure, the work can be demanding; and like most jobs, my schedule goes beyond the 9:00 – 5:00 time slot. What amazes me though, is as soon as I struggle up the last hill on my way home, I get a sudden elation, a burst of energy, and a healthy battery reboot.What I experience is not an endorphin buzz from my burning legs, and is unparallel to any cup of Joe. What I see, and what gives me that second wind, is the panoramic view of Price Mountains barricading across the land. And for a moment, my Midwestern mind gets lost in mountain awe.From the cornfields of the great state of Iowa, I came to Virginia to work, explore, and stand in the shadows of giants. I don’t know exactly what drew me to the rugged terrain of the mountains. The recreation it provides is the quick answer, for every element of the mountain can be rode, ran, hiked, climbed, and explored; but those days as I ride home tired from the long day’s work, I begin to further understand my mountain magnetism.I catch my breath, staring wide-eyed across the rupturing horizon, and contemplate how the mountains stand so tall even when I’m at my weakest. They silently lumber into the sky as the intersection between land and air, as the separation between mice and men, and as the difference between life and living. There they are day after day, a testament to the brush strokes of Mother Nature and the ruggedness of Father Time. I can watch as the mountains stand indifferent to the ominous rain clouds and prevailing winds, and I grow enamored of their will to continue on. I strive to be as strong as the mountains and I live vicariously through their stoic stature.The quiet authority of the mountains still puts me in daze, and it may just be my Midwesterner eyes, but every day I feel humbled and honored to stand amongst the Blue Ridge Mountains. So here’s to getting out, to seeing what’s always been standing right in front of you, and to finding your own mountain meaning.-BDLlast_img read more

Emotions boil over after Clippers defeat Chris Paul, Rockets

first_imgD’Antoni later said Griffin hit him on the sideline.Emotions reached a boiling point when Griffin intercepted Houston’s Trevor Ariza, who began yelling at Austin Rivers on the Clippers’ bench. Griffin drew his second technical foul and was ejected with 1:03 remaining, and Ariza also was tossed.The final seconds passed without incident, and the Clippers and Rockets retreated to their locker rooms. The Clippers got inside and stayed there, but Ariza, Paul, Gerald Green and injured guard James Harden attempted to get into the locker room via an adjoining corridor.A fifth player, reportedly Clint Capela, knocked on the main door of the Clippers’ locker room, but whoever answered it, shut it quickly on the Rockets’ center.“We were where we were supposed to be,” Griffin said when asked about the postgame incident. “We were in our locker room. Whatever happens over there, we controlled what we did. We were in our locker room in our seats. You should ask them.” PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – JANUARY 15: Blake Griffin #32 of the LA Clippers celebrates a Houston Rockets foul during a 113-102 Clipper win at Staples Center on January 15, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — It started with boos, which turned into cheers for Chris Paul. It ended with mayhem and an ugly scene in a corridor outside the Clippers’ locker room as Paul and several of his Houston Rockets teammates tried to enter to confront injured guard Austin Rivers and perhaps Blake Griffin.Staples Center security stopped the players before they could gain entrance, keeping the teams apart after matters nearly spiraled out of control on the court in the closing minutes of the Clippers’ 113-102 victory over the Rockets on Monday night.This was supposed to be Paul’s night, his homecoming, his return to his place of employment for six seasons. The Clippers ruined the party, seized the night and made it theirs, winning their fifth in a row, moving above .500 at 22-21 and into seventh place in the Western Conference.Griffin and Houston coach Mike D’Antoni cursed at each other after Paul fouled Griffin on a drive to the basket with the Clippers in command of the game. Griffin and D’Antoni were each given technical fouls with the Clippers ahead 108-98 with 3:34 left. Paul ducked questions about the Rockets’ attempted invasion of the Clippers’ locker room.The Clippers were not particularly forthcoming, either.“We’re honoring Martin Luther King Day,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “We’re non-violent.”The NBA is expected to investigate the incident.On the court, Paul was at his all-too-familiar best, scoring 19 points, grabbing six rebounds and adding seven assists. He and the Harden-less Rockets couldn’t prevent the Clippers from winning their 11th game in their last 14, which has vaulted them back into the playoff race.Harden sat out for the seventh consecutive game because of a hamstring injury.Lou Williams and Griffin took the Clippers where they wanted to go, scoring from far and near. Williams scored 31 points on 12-for-19 shooting, including 4 for 8 from 3-point range, and Griffin added 29 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.It was bound to be an emotional night, Paul’s first visit to face the Clippers since he was granted his wish to be traded last summer, and it didn’t disappoint. The Clippers trailed by as many as 10 points before closing the half with a 25-12 run. They never trailed again.It was not just another game for Williams, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell and injured guard Patrick Beverley, the players the Clippers received from the Rockets in the deal for Paul. They had celebrated their Houston homecomings with the Clippers’ Dec. 22 victory over the Rockets.“We’ve got a lot of hungry guys,” Williams said.Related Articles Miller: Chris Paul returns to face Clippers and is thanked for his efforts Clippers fans booed Paul the first time he touched the ball and the second time, too. It wasn’t angry or sustained. When the first TV timeout arrived midway through the first quarter and a tribute video played on the giant overhanging scoreboard, all seemed to be forgiven.Many in the non-sellout crowd of 17,622 stood and cheered.Paul’s legacy in six seasons with the Clippers was not a championship, but it was something nearly as lasting and important. Paul helped chart a new, winning course that didn’t exist before his arrival. It took time, but the Clippers underwent a dramatic image makeover during his tenure.“It’s always emotional when you lose, especially against your former team,” Paul said at game’s end. “All of the emotions that go into seeing familiar faces and stuff like that. For us, we have to be better. Give them credit, they won the game.”center_img Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan sits out 2nd consecutive game with sprained ankle Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Rockets confront Austin Rivers, Blake Griffin in Clippers’ locker room last_img read more
