Celebrating the best of the City

first_img Mayor of London Boris Johnson snapped up the most prestigious gong at CityA.M.’s inaugural awards ceremony last night.A panel of judges, made up of some of the most influential members of the Square Mile’s financial community, voted unanimously for Johnson to be personality of the year, saying that he was a “wild personality” and “larger than life”. They praised him in particular for repeatedly speaking out as a lone advocate for London’s financial services community in what has been one of its toughest periods.Accepting the award last night, the mayor told the 450-strong audience gathered at the Grange Hotel, St Paul’s, that he was honoured by the recognition. “I’m glad we are sticking up for financial services and I will continue to do so as long as I am Mayor and as long as I have breath in my body,” Johnson said.The panel was also unanimous in voting for Burberry as CityA.M.’s company of the year in 2010. Best known for its upmarket fashion products with a peculiarly British slant, Burberry recently edged up full-year profit expectations after achieving 18 per cent sales growth. Chief executive Angela Ahrendts said yesterday that Burberry focused on “style, structure and values” to make Burberry “the great company it is”. Burberry finance director Stacey Cartwright collected the award on behalf of the company.Other winners of awards included the Arsenal Football Club chief executive Ivan Gazidis, who won an award as the rising star of the year. Gazidis, who recently announced record-breaking profits at Arsenal, was voted as a rising star because he has shown that spending your way to the top is not the only way to achieve success in the ultra competitive world of Premier League football.JP Morgan Cazenove was deemed by the judges to be the investment bank of the year. The judges said the bank continues to perform very strongly, with its influence felt across most major deals of the year. Summing up the evening in his opening speech, CityA.M. editor Allister Heath said it was an “evening of festivity and optimism – two commodities that have been far too scarce in recent times.” ALLISTER HEATH: P2, Celebrating the best of the City Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyDiscovery23+ Sports Stadiums Around the World That Are Abandoned NowDiscoverySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Share Tags: NULL Thursday 28 October 2010 9:34 pmlast_img read more

Old town Belgrade has numerous beautiful period buildings but many of them have unused lofts. They are usually in dilapidated state; often with roofs that are leaking and wooden construction that requires change. But they give a perfect opportunity for creation unique spaces that, unfortunately, many people do not realize potential they give. This particular loft is in a building completed in 1920s in the main pedestrian street of Old town. It was originally used as a servant quarters and in early 1980s was converted into a duplex apartment.Save this picture!© Nikola I TamaraSpace was in a terrible state which required complete roof reconstruction (although it had to stay within existing volume due to the highest heritage protection the building enjoys). Space was full of added features that did not have any value to the space (metal spiral stairs, dividing gypsum walls and vinyl floor covering typical for the period) that had to be removed. Owner has decided to turn the place into an office space, adding an extra room at the back which previously was cut off from the rest of the apartment by light-well and existing wooden roof construction. The brief was to create a clean, light space required for artists/architectural/advertising studio.Save this picture!© Nikola I TamaraAfter obtaining all necessary paperwork and permits, works on full reconstruction lasted 6 months. The length of renovation was mainly due to difficult delivery logistics (building is in the middle of the pedestrian area, delivery of materials and removal of debris was allowed in a very small window of early hours in a day). Works included complete removal of existing partitions, ceiling and floor covers, introducing completely new electrical and plumbing system, independent cooling/heating system as well as IT network system etc.Save this picture!© Nikola I TamaraSave this picture!Entry levelSave this picture!© Nikola I TamaraSave this picture!Upper levelExisting roof wood structure was covered with heavy coat of dark brown oil paint, which was sand down by hand and cleaned to its original oak structure which set the tone to introduce oak floor planks. That gave warm feel to the space and old wooden construction now acts as the focal design point. Light and transparent oak partitions are added for discrete partitioning of the area giving the space airy feel and corresponding well with existing structure. To contrast the warm color of wood, entire place was painted in white, except the feature end wall which was painted in dark mushroom color which gave depth to the space. All original features were saved, such as 28m long roof wood members, metal clamps on roof construction, even the chimney revision doors which were completely refurbished, becoming one of the main features of the space. Final result was a very clean and airy space, full of light but warm and inviting and all that in the middle of the historical Old town and pedestrian zone.Save this picture!© Nikola I TamaraProject gallerySee allShow lessThe 13 Best Plants for Your Apartment… And How To Keep Them AliveArticlesCall For Ideas : Aqua 2018 Architecture CompetitionIdeasProject locationAddress:Budimska, Belgrade, SerbiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The void is the instrument of construction in the Nish House. The composition techniques used in this house, built in the ’70s, were to bring back and shape new perspective views, which were hidden in the previous project. This was done to create a new atmosphere of immersion and connection with the surrounding nature. The void as the measure of the different parts has been shaped following the various depths of the interior environment and at the same time, showing the visual distances between inside and outside.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe first high distance(1) is the one that passes through the ground level, from the entrance (-0.95 m) to the most internal garden at the end of the property, like a visual arrow that allows the viewer to grasp the breadth of the whole site. The zenithal light penetrates from a skylight, placed on the North-South axis. It is placed on the core of the habitation, around which are arranged the stairs that lead to the first floor and the balcony. From this place, the different points of view create a deep distance(1) among the higher parts of the house, leaving a glimpse of the floor below.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Amit GeronOn the ground floor, the existing raumplan altitude changes (from ± 0.00 m to -0.63 m) have been simplified and at the same time accentuated, distributing them between the entrance and the garden level. The first path has a central point of view and connects the entrance and the library (± 0.00 m) and moves forward to the dining and the living area (-0.63 m). From the living area, it is possible to admire the 240 sqm of the ground floor as a whole and be delighted by the stars through the skylight.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Amit GeronAt the same time, a more hidden second path goes from the library to the kitchen (-0.63). The view is cut by the side garden: an external space that works as a functional area for the kitchen and meals area. These visual landscapes merge together, allowing the inhabitants to vary the views and to appreciate more the surrounding greenery. The void in its various forms, with its abstract and impalpable nature, is further emphasized by the wide wall surface, which highlights and increases the idea of calm, the sensation of the house as a place of meditation.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe functional program in this project was to look for the privacy of the individual inhabitants. The apartment of the eldest daughter has been organized on the ground floor with a private garden. On the upper floor, three apartments are located: the first one for the parents, the second for the younger daughter, and the last one for the son. In these independent units, the balconies lead to the more isolated areas of the house, like the roof garden, where the dry garden is located. The terraces of the son’s apartments are connected to the family orchard, located +5.80 m on the front side of the house.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Amit GeronThe sports and wellness area are located, together with all the functional areas of the building, on the lower floor (-2.65 m), which can be reached through the ground floor and from independent access via the side garden. The floor of the entrance garden was made with slabs of ceppo di Gré, a material we used all over the building. This garden is an open room, which works as a filter between the public area and the intimacy of the interior, and can be used for social events. On the contrary, the side gardens are functional to the nearby areas and are characterized by borders made of high greenery to protect the site. The most private and internal heart of the house is the final garden, an intimate locus souls. Here there is a long water pool, which reflects the building and the green.Save this picture!© Amit GeronProject gallerySee allShow lessOffshore Borkum Apartments / Delugan Meissl Associated ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPositively Negative House / Dan Brunn ArchitectureSelected Projects Share 2019 Itai Paritzki, Paola Liani Projectscenter_img Year:  Nish House / Paritzki & Liani Architects Architects: Paritzki & Liani Architects Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeParitzki & Liani ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationRamat HasharonOn FacebookIsraelPublished on May 09, 2021Cite: “Nish House / Paritzki & Liani Architects” 09 May 2021.

M&S and Oxfam launch clothing recycling campaign to raise funds

first_imgM&S and Oxfam launch clothing recycling campaign to raise funds Marks & Spencer and Oxfam have joined forces to launch the M&S and Oxfam Clothes Exchange, “the biggest programme in the UK to encourage consumers to recycle their clothes”. It will raise money for Oxfam as well as reduce the one million tonnes of clothing sent by the public to landfill in the UK each year.The partnership was announced on the first anniversary of M&S’ plan to address its environmental impact, ‘Plan A’.From 28 January customers who donate M&S clothes to Oxfam’s 790 stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland will receive a voucher worth £5, valid for one month, to use with their next purchase of £35 or more on clothing, homeware or beauty products at M&S.Vouchers will not, however, be issued for M&S lingerie, underwear, swimwear, hosiery and socks that are donated to Oxfam.Sir Stuart Rose, Chief Executive, Marks & Spencer said of the partnership: “It’s a triple win – it’s good for customers, good for people in developing countries and good for the environment.”Barbara Stocking, Director, Oxfam said: “Recycling and reusing clothes – and anything else we can sell – has always been central to Oxfam’s fundraising, as well as being good for the environment. Through our unique textile sorting facility and the resourcefulness and skills of our specialist staff, Oxfam is able to make the most from all the clothes we receive. People’s unwanted clothes really will raise much needed money to help people living in poverty.”www.oxfam.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Around 40 Venezuelan newspapers hit by newsprint shortage

first_img News Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela Receive email alerts After negotiations with the authorities, the 110-year-old newspaper El Impulso has obtained a last-minute delivery of newsprint that will allow it to keep publishing. A paper shortage resulting from government currency controls has so far forced 37 newspapers to suspend or reduce their print editions.Venezuela’s oldest daily, El Impulso had announced on 10 September that its 15 September issue would be the last until the newsprint shortage was resolved. The newspaper had previously taken various measures to eke out its paper supplies for as long as possible.The agreement under which El Impulso will receive “emergency” newsprint supplies was reached in negotiations between its management and Corporación Maneiro, an entity in charge of newsprint distribution that reports to the president’s office. The National Press Workers Union acted as mediator.The agreement does not however guarantee the daily’s long-term survival and further negotiations are planned with the aim of securing a regular newsprint supply.“The possibility of an ‘emergency’ supply of newsprint shows that the shortage affecting the press depends on the government’s will,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“Pluralism and freedom of information, already hard hit in Venezuela, are being further weakened by the newsprint shortage, which is an indirect form of censorship. All of the newspapers that have had to reduce or suspend production must immediately benefit from the same measures, regardless of their editorial policies.”President Nicolás Maduro’s government is hostile towards opposition media and has undertaken a series of legal reforms and acquisitions that have increased the number of pro-government media. Designed to gag the often rabid opposition, these measure have just fuelled the existing polarization.Venezuela is ranked 116th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
