PivotText description provided by the architects. The project was sponsored by a family who wanted to make their summer home their principal residence for the year. 110 square meter of floor area on a plot of 561 square meter, located in the cove of Tamaris about 50 meters from the sea, in an environment of neo-provencal houses, the existing building was a house divided into two identical studios with a terrace East facing a campsite. The building is in aslope, the basement was converted into a laundry room available-cellar. The roof was tiled traditional . Access to plot is through a portal located east . Access to the house where the floor is raised above the ground on its eastern façade is via a staircase. (Up to about 250 cm)Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolThe program simple enough, was to have one house with 2 bedrooms and orient the house towards the sea located in the South, all in a contemporary writing. Compared to the budget allocated want the client to the redevelopment of its new home (190 000 Euros), the party is taken to retain the majority of existing facades (by elevating only 60 cm) as well as stair access. Only the south-east part of the house is completely destroyed and rebuilt the house to open in the corner by creating a loggia redirected towards the sea Also in the interests of economy, the majority of existing openings has been preserved but they were enlarged on their height to give them a higher proportion “vertical”.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolFor the roof, the existing roof tiles was completely demolished and replaced by a flat roof that covers the entire project, using the stairs for awning and the large bay window angle is set in the living room. To provide timely light more finely, two skylights were created in the new roof at the terrace. The angle of the bay window opens completely and allows visually create a diagonal between the kitchen and dining room, terrace and sea The soil is continuous between the terrace and the day part (stoneware tiles 50×100 cm), and the fact that the glass does not amount to a fixed angle, the terrace 14 m2 becomes an extension of stay. To protect the visual part of the day camp located east of the house, wood posts were established.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolThis shading has two functions. On the one hand, it hides the view east side serving screen, on the other hand, four of these are just 4 metal posts covered with wood that support the roof. The removal of these post gives a lighter side and air on the roof in the south-eastern corner. Distribution is quite simple, the day part is facing South-East, the rooms are oriented to the West. To minimize the visual height of the overall volume of the house, the entire underbody was treated by a different material, namely a slate veneer which runs throughout the house. To treat a hollow joint between the white plaster of the current part and slate underbody, a U-shaped stainless steel wraps around the entire house for separation between the two materials.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolAccess doors to crawl space and basement laundry-have been replaced by metal doors in painted steel in the same tone as the slate so that they visually disappear into the underbody.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolAt outdoor spaces, earthworks at the entrance of the plot helped expand the parking capacity of the house. The tall pine on the garden has also been preserved.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolProduction of cold and heat is a heat pump in the cellar. The recovery of water from the roof terrace is made by Plastic runs that pass inside the house hidden behind plasterboard boxes.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolThe writing of the house plays on vertical lines on the upper part (proportion of windows, wood posts, ..), and horizontal lines on the underbody of the house (slate veneer and steel doors). Only exception to the rule on the East side, a horizontal window allows to create a “picture” from the living room to the sea and the surrounding cliffs.Save this picture!© Jean Baptiste ReolAt the interior of the house, there is three entities volume day (lounge, dining room and kitchen)separate through games of ceiling and paint. The dining room is a “cube ripped” leaving an orange mark on the walls and ceiling . The living room is marked by a false ceiling disbursed in which are inserted four strips embedded randomly arranged. The path is then along the low voltage recessed spotlights. Along the bay window corner , there is a cornice plasterboard into which is inserted a strip LED. The bathroom was fully tiled from floor to ceiling tiles combining 80 x40 and 2×2 mosaic. Within this calepinage come to integrate two mirrors. The deck of the tub has been realized in wood.

NMPF Talking Dairy Trade at WDE

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News NMPF Talking Dairy Trade at WDE NMPF Talking Dairy Trade at WDEWherever you go, it appears USMCA is dominating the conversation in agriculture. It was no exception at the World Dairy Expo when Secretary Sonny Perdue said he was confident it will get passed.However, Chris Galen, vice president of communication of the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) isn’t sure that will happen with the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.“What we’ve been hearing, at least officially from the House Speaker on down, is they want to continue working on other legislative issues besides the possibility of impeaching the President,” said Galen. “We think that if there’s any evidence that they can continue to function and work on a bipartisan basis, it will be on the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement.”While some in the ag industry are applauding the new trade deal between the U.S. and Japan, there is some apprehension in the dairy industry.“What we have told the administration is we need to continue working on the terms of this agreement with Japan because it is such a large market,” he said. “The important thing is that there are other nations that already have relationships with Japan, and the U.S. could not be placed at a competitive disadvantage with countries like New Zealand.”According to Galen, the NMPF is excited about the deal with Japan, but needs to see more details.

Our correspondent visited Amardeep Bassey in prison – Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of the journalist and his guides

But this decision has not yet been sent to the security forces who are holding the British journalist. Together with his guides, Bassey is being held in a cell in Khyber House, seat of the representative of the federal government in change of the Khyber tribal zone in Peshawar. Amardeep Bassey told an RSF representative on 27 May that he was “desperate” that his release was taking so long._________________________________________________________________22.05.2002Amardeep Bassey and his guides were taken back to Landikotal prison (Khyber tribal zone) after being questioned for three days by secret police in Peshawar. The British journalist told a RSF correspondent that they were questioned night and day. The police promised to provide a report to their superiors within 3 days. Finally, two representatives of the Sunday Mercury were refused the right to visit their imprisoned reporter on 20 May-._______________________________________________________17.05.2002Journalist Amardeep Bassey and his two guides have been transferred for three days to the headquarters of the Special Branch police in Peshawar for questioning. According to sources contacted by RSF’s correspondent, the Special Branch police have been under pressure to ensure the case is examined as quickly as possible. Currently responsible for questioning Pakistani prisoners returning from Afghanistan, the Special Branch had nonetheless refused, on 16 May, to take the three men into police custody._______________________________________________________________16.05.2002After spending only a few hours in Peshawar, Amardeep Bassey and his two guides were again transferred to the Landi Kotal prison on 16 May. Police in Peshawar said that they did not have enough investigators to interrogate the journalist and his two Pakistani guides. A Landi Kotal police official told RSF that the three prisoners would be again transferred to Peshawar as soon as the investigators were available.—————————————————————————————————————–The British journalist Amardeep Bassey, arrested six days ago by the authorities in Pakistan, was transferred to Peshawar this morning, 16 May 2002, together with his two guides, for further questioning. He will be seen by police and members of Pakistan’s secret service (ISI). He is being held in a military area in the centre of Peshawar.The correspondent for Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) in Pakistan, Iqbal Khattak, spoke to the British journalist Amardeep Bassey in his prison cell in Landi Kotal (50 km west of Peshawar, in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province) on 15 May 2002. The Sunday Mercury reporter confirmed that he was in good health, but had undergone extensive questioning and was being harassed by the security services, who suspect him of spying for India. Amardeep Bassey told RSF’s correspondent: “I am OK, don’t worry. I am in good hands; not those of the authorities of course, but of the people who are with me here in the jail (…). My Pakistani guides, and their families, are my only hope in overcoming these difficult moments.”The British journalist of Indian origin refused to comment on the questioning to which he had been subjected by the Pakistani security services, but confirmed that he had not been ill-treated. “They asked me very detailed questions; sometimes the same question for several hours (…). They asked me when I last travelled to India and the name of my village”, explained Bassey, a British citizen whose family is of Sikh origin.Amardeep Bassey also explained why his passport did not have an exit visa from Pakistan. “When I returned to Afghanistan with my two guides, I asked them where the frontier checkpoint was. They told me that we were already in Afghanistan.”The organisation that defends press freedom has once again urged the Pakistani authorities to release Amardeep Bassey immediately, together with his two Pakistani guides Naoshad Ali Afridi and Khitab Shah Shinwari. “It is imperative that the Interior Minister intervenes without delay, to ensure that the authorities responsible in the NWFP release the journalist and regularise his situation. In the past, a number of journalists have entered or left Pakistan without having their passport stamped, and the authorities have always managed to find a quick solution to this purely administrative problem”, says Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of RSF. The organisation has also asked the UK’s Foreign Office to intervene to obtain the release of Amardeep Bassey and his two guides. The correspondent for Reporters Without Borders spoke to the British journalist Amardeep Bassey in his prison cell in Peshawar. The reporter confirmed that he was in good health, but had undergone extensive questioning by the security services, who suspect him of spying for India.
