Situated nearby an ex-Soviet military town, which housed a nuclear submarine training base, Villa Locator deliberately advances the theme of its desolate surroundings. Starting point was an old army barrack made of calcium silicate bricks. The client’s brief was to reinterpret the surrounding military environment and keep the bulky 65-cm-thick existing walls as load bearing external walls. Renovated brick walls are visible in the interior of the house.Save this picture!© Paul RiddleBecause of the building restrictions on the seaside plot, the barrack gave beforehand the constrained size of the groundwork for the new building. Prominent feature of the villa is two protruding consoles looking at the sea. These two “locators”, each with an individual staircase, were added to enlarge the living area. Consoles are balanced on the other side of the building by a projecting motorcycle garage. Thus the building has two contrasting facades: glazed sea view facade with a terrace which is communicating with the environment and a hermetic street facade with vertical window slits for the southern sun. The rough aesthetic of concrete has been fully exploited in the general structure of the building. Save this picture!© Paul RiddleIn the interior, segregated spaces of a barrack have been replaced by an open plan. The location of rooms on different levels creates varying activity zones which mood also depends on the lighting conditions. Still, the austere character of the building continues inside.Save this picture!© Paul Riddle‘Borrowing‘ of sunlight into the open-plan living area from the enclosed, bunker-like south elevation gives warmth and light airiness to the interior. This has been achieved via projecting dormer windows and strip glazing in the main wall. The indirect light makes the room glow.Save this picture!© Paul RiddleThe massive external concrete walls provide effective thermal mass, while a geothermal pump powers the heating beneath the cast concrete floors. The surrounding natural landscape and greenery were kept largely intact.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessYAP IM-Debris Competition Entry / Yalin Architectural DesignUnbuilt ProjectAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Paldiski, Estonia Houses Architects: Kavakava Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/349444/villa-lokaator-kavakava-architects Clipboard Photographs Year: Year: CopyAbout this officeKavakava ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPaldiskiHousesEstoniaPublished on April 01, 2013Cite: “Villa Lokaator / Kavakava Architects” 01 Apr 2013.

The winning projects include: ‘Wet + Dry House’ by Mary Ann Jackson, Ralph Green, Muhammad Kamil and Nick Shearman from Australian firm Visionary Design Development Pty Ltd., ‘Courtyard House’ by Jess Lumley & Alexander Koller from the UK, and ‘Open Embrace’ by Keith Greenwald and Lisa Ekle from USA. The Winning Student Design was by Sanaz Amin Deldar, Nastaran Hadidi, Ehsan Naderi and Simak Khaksar from Iran. More images and information after the break.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jess Lumley and Alexander KollerThe design competition asked for designs of a $2000 house that can withstand flooding and offer a safe and secure home for low income families in Cambodia. Habitat for Humanity Cambodia have supported the competition from the start and now plan to deliver these homes in the coming months giving the families that they support a chance to choose a design that relates to their specific lifestyle needs. Hoping to provide poor Cambodians with a better standard of living, the winning projects will be built later this year. Save this picture!Courtesy of Keith Greenwald and Lisa EkleThe jury picked three designs that reflected the desire to have a large flexible space to meet changing family needs, a space to rear chickens and a design that allowed for a shop front on the ground floor. A wide range of submissions made use of sustainable materials and highlighted the need for Cambodia to look at the nature of the booming construction industry and to think about more environmentally friendly ways of meeting the housing demand. The short listed designs show both traditional and new techniques in reducing the carbon footprint of delivering new homes. There will be an exhibition in Phnom Penh in May showcasing the best designs and the winning projects.Project gallerySee allShow lessFour Faces: Collider Activity Center Competition Entry / Atelier WHYUnbuilt ProjectFletcher Hotel / Benthem Crouwel ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this office#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesCambodiaPublished on March 30, 2013Cite: Alison Furuto. “Cambodian Future House Competition Winning Proposals” 30 Mar 2013.

John Moore/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) — Minneapolis sounded the alarm on the city’s addiction crisis on Thursday, revealing that officers had recently responded to as many as 15 overdoses in a single day — an apparent product of the country’s ongoing opioid epidemic.Officials with the Minneapolis Police Department said officers responded to 65 overdose cases in the previous nine days leading up to Wednesday, with the majority of the cases occurring in and around the city’s East Phillips neighborhood.The department said 15 of the cases, including a suspected fatal heroine overdose, came on Sunday. More than half of those calls came within a nine-hour time frame, as cities across the nation face epidemic levels of heroin, synthetic opioid and prescription pill addictions.As a result, the MPD said it’s boosting coordination efforts and deploying extra resources to known problem areas. Its homicide unit recently added an overdose coordinator position to review the fast-growing number of incoming cases, police said.“The MPD has increased patrols in the high overdose areas and is continuing our ongoing partnership with the City of Minneapolis Health Department and the State of MN Health Department in raising awareness to drug overdoses,” the department said in a statement.Minneapolis is one of the many cities battling to keep up as the country struggles with a terrifying number of deadly accidental overdoses.The odds of dying accidentally from an opioid overdose rose to one in 96 earlier this year, meaning Americans are more likely to die of an overdose than a car crash, according to an analysis from the National Safety Council.The odds of dying in a motor vehicle crash are one in 103.Like many cities, Minneapolis said its officers are equipped with Narcan — the emergency overdose reversal drug. The department said officers and had administered the life-saving drug “when applicable.”“MPD is in constant communication with surrounding agencies regarding overdose trends and patterns in an effort to provide timely information to the public,” the department said.In light of the “large increase in overdoses in a short period of time,” the department took a moment to remind residents of Steve’s Law — the state’s good Samaritan law.The law protects people from being charged or prosecuted if they act in good faith while seeking medical treatment for another person experiencing a drug-related overdose.

Brad James Written by Tags: UC Davis Football/Weber State Football FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailDAVIS, Calif.-Saturday, No. 4 Weber State (5-2, 3-0 in Big Sky Conference play) seeks to remain perfect in Big Sky Conference action as they visit the No. 22 UC Davis (4-4, 2-2 in Big Sky) Aggies for a 5:00 pm MDT kickoff.The Wildcats rank 54th nationally in scoring offense (29.1 points per game). With injuries throughout the season to junior quarterback Jake Constantine (75-119, 592 yards, 2 TD’s/3 INT’s) sophomore signal-caller Kaden Jenks has been superb. Jenks has completed 54.4 percent of his passes (43-79) for 458 yards, four touchdowns and an interception.Coming off of a performance which saw him run for an NCAA-best on the season 328 yards in a 51-28 win over Northern Arizona last Saturday, sophomore tailback Josh Davis (91 car, 620 yards, 7 TD’s) is having a solid season.His 6.8 yards per carry ranks him 12th nationally. Redshirt freshman tailback Kris Jackson (48 car, 250 yards, a team-best 8 touchdown runs on 5.2 yards per carry) has also maximized his opportunities for the Wildcats.Weber State sophomore receiver Devon Cooley (28 rec, 327 yards, TD) and junior receiver Rashid Shaheed (17 rec, 209 yards, 3 TD’s) have been solid targets for Wildcats quarterbacks on the season.Junior kicker Trey Tuttle has made 10 of his 12 field goal attempts on the season and 22 of his 23 PAT’s for the Wildcats.Defensively, Weber State continues to truly be among the elite teams in the nation.The Wildcats rank 18th nationally in scoring defense (20.4 points per game) and are second in the country in turnover differential (+10), trailing only Incarnate Word (+13).With their 20 sacks on the season, the Wildcats are tied for 14th with Prairie View A&M, Saint Francis (Pa.) and Mississippi Valley State.Weber State is led in sacks by redshirt sophomore defensive end George Tarlas and senior defensive end Jonah Williams (5 sacks apiece).Sophomore safety Brody Burke (2 interceptions) continues to lead the Wildcats in that category. In forced fumbles, junior safety Preston Smith, sophomore cornerback Eddie Heckard and Tarlas have two apiece to lead the squad.The Aggies come into Saturday’s game familiar with Utah-based Big Sky school as they bested Southern Utah 33-25 last weekend at Eccles Coliseum of Cedar City.UC Davis is 45th nationally (30.6 points per game) in scoring offense.Senior signal-caller Jake Maier remains one of the best passers in the nation. He completes 66.1 percent of his passes (224-339, 13th nationally) for 2,514 yards (2nd nationally), 21 touchdowns (tied for 5th nationally with Jacksonville State’s Zerrick Cooper) and nine interceptions. Against SUU, Maier also exceeded 10,000 passing yards for his career, joining former NFL and CFL veteran J.T. O’Sullivan as the only Aggie passer to reach that plateau in school history.UC Davis, of course, is known for passing prowess, but sophomore tailback Ulonzo Gilliam Jr. (159 car, 781 yards, 7 TD’s) is having a successful season. Gilliam also has 32 receptions for 227 yards and a touchdown.Junior receiver Kris Vaughn (38 rec, 465 yards, 7 TD’s) has been the Aggies’ most reliable target in the passing game. Sophomore receiver Carson Crawford (33 rec, 428 yards, 3 TD’s), senior tight end Wes Preece (29 rec, 373 yards, 6 TD’s) have also been productive.Senior kicker/punter Max O’Rourke has made 8 of his 10 field goal attempts on the season and 27 of his 29 PAT’s.Defensively, UC Davis ranks 68th nationally in scoring defense (29.1 points). Redshirt freshman linebacker Nick Eaton (4.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles) remains the Aggies’ overall best player on that side of the ball.Sophomore defensive back Devon King and junior defensive back Isaiah Thomas (2 interceptions apiece) lead the Aggies in that category.The Wildcats lead the Aggies 4-2 all-time.

Online letting agent Upad has abandoned its up-front fees for landlords who use its most expensive service.Called ‘Pay On Success’, it replaces its ‘Complete’ service which landlords used to pay up front for but, unlike traditional agents, now pay for only when tenants begin referencing.“We appreciate that landlords don’t come in one size and that, therefore, we shouldn’t offer one single pricing package,” says James Davis, Upad’s CEO (pictured, below).The new service is essentially the same as the old one. For £399 including VAT landlords get tenancy compliance, a landlords’ club, personal property expert, tenant enquiry handling service, referencing, contract and payment management and photos.Its two more basic services called ‘Standard’ and ‘Essential’ continue to be paid for up-front by landlords.“We continually review our service to landlords,” says James Davis.“This ensures that the options we provide to them not only meet their current needs but exceed expectations and allow us to stand-out compared to traditional high street agents.“The launch of our ‘Pay On Success’ package is one such innovation and has already been very positively received.“Early performance data shows that this package is proving twice as popular as the ‘Complete’ offer it replaces – this in itself demonstrates how we’re responding to what landlords want.”More landlordsUpad is the UK’s oldest large online letting agent and was launched by James, who is himself a prolific landlord, in 2007 and who last year claimed high street agents would go the same way as Yellow Pages.Last year it claims to have helped its landlords let out 10,000 properties a year, its largest to date.The company also says it saw 20% more landlords sign up to use its service year-on-year during the final three months of 2017, and that registrations also increased by 14% year-on-year during January this year.

Five firefighters were promoted in a ceremony held by North Hudson Regional Fire & Rescue (NHRFR) on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017. The special ceremony in the firehouse was attended by firefighters, friends, family, and numerous local and regional officials, including Mayor Nicholas Sacco, who congratulated the honorees and thanked them for their service.Battalion Chief Mark Lorenz, a 25-year firefighter, Captain Alan Williams (15 years), and firefighters James Lisa (15 years), Erik Wilson (12 years), and Richard Gora (19 years) each received a commendation, along with a promotion. Lorenz was promoted to deputy chief. Captain Williams was promoted to battalion chief, and the others were promoted to captain.“North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue is dedicated to saving lives and responding to catastrophic fires in our communities, and for the department to continue offering a high level of service, we must maintain an adequate supervisory staff of experienced fire officers,” said Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, who also serves as chairman of the management board for NHRFR. “Today we are proud to promote these five outstanding individuals and I thank them for their continuing service.”NHRFR is one of the largest regionalized fire departments in the United States, covering the North Hudson towns of Guttenberg, North Bergen, Union City, Weehawken and West New York.As a nationally recognized fire protection unit, NHRFR takes pride in maintaining one of the best response times in the nation.“Deputy Chief Lorenz, Battalion Chief Williams, and Captains Lisa, Wilson and Gora are some of the most dedicated and professional officers I have had the privilege of working with in my career,” said NHRFR Chief Frank Montagne. “They are each very deserving of their promotions and I’m sure they will continue to do excellent work for NHRFR in these new capacities.” read more
