The first visit I made to see the site changed all preconceived ideas about what form this house should take. Located on an elevated hill slope, over looking the ‘Ganges’ river as it turned around a bend, the unbridled energy of the gushing river became the one constant inspiration and the form the house attempts to reflect.

Loft in Bratislava / RULES architects

The interior of the three room loft has been designed to underline the main advantages of lofts – ease, casualness and space. Visible elements of the steel structure of the roof add industrial character to the loft whereas natural materials make it cosy. In spite of the trendy daytime area the layout of the loft designated for family of 4 is rational and practical. The daytime zone consists of a hall, a kitchen, a dining room and a living room. The night zone has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanIn spite of industrial elements the living room of the loft is cosy giving a feel of heart and home. High clearance evokes a loft atmosphere. The living room seems to be very clean as it has been freed of elements that are necessary but do not have to be seen. The stereo system and the computer are hidden in the kitchen cabinets and the subwoofer is in the couch. Only the TV set can be seen. The proved combination of wood with black and white works anytime and anywhere. The elements that are in direct contact with a visitor – the floor and the wall opposite the window – have been designed of warm pine wood. The walls, the ceiling and fitted furniture are white. In a neutral space a black roof structure is remarkable.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanThe corner lounge suite of grey fabric has been designed and tailored to fit into the room as if it was born there. Unlike other lounge suites this one has wider armrests with a subwoofer integrated into the one closer to the window. As a result we got rid of one not nice looking box in the living room. As the headroom of the apartment at its highest point is almost four metres it could be divided into two levels. On the lower level there is the living room, the dining room and the kitchen, on the upper one there is the mezzanine with a bookcase. The lowered part is situated above the communication part of the daytime area, so the lower clear height does not disturb the space . In the mezzanine a net instead of railing has been used.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanIn the mezzanine there is a bookcase with a beanbag meant for reading. The floor of the mezzanine in the daytime area consists of a grid with a black perforated metal plate laid on beams of the steel structure. The floor of the mezzanine above the night time passage, bathroom and toilet is closed and offers an additional storage room or a secret hiding place.Save this picture!Floor PlanAs the small hall and a daytime area make up one space the hall does not feel confined. There is a bench for changing shoes, a shoe cabinet, a coat wardrobe and a little shelf for keys. Night time area is separated from the daytime zone by a sliding door hidden in the wall. With the sliding and bathroom doors wide open from the hall we can see into the exterior. As most of the time we spend at home is in the morning and in the evening, we need lighting. The right choice of artificial lighting can make the best of visual potential of space and create unique light atmosphere. The lighting in the loft can be dimmed so it can be used as a strong light source for cleaning as well as a dimmed light for watching TV.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanThe TV on a revolving bracket can be watched from the kitchen as well as from the living room. It is not an off-the-shelf bracket but the atypical tailored product designed and made especially for this loft. We did our best and except turning around it allows to adjust the rake angle in all directions and to hid all cables.Though the owner ́s original wish was a kitchen with an island, due to spatial reasons we preferred an L-shape kitchen. The kitchen door is matt white, the kitchen board is made of mdf. The kitchen has a hidden door into a pantry and a place for stereo components. The wall behind the induction hob is protected by a handmade Sometile mosaic. In spite of the trend of making kitchen tops of artificial stones, in the apartment we used an ordinary mdf board. You can have it for a fraction of the price of a stone top, it suits its purpose in similar way and in combination with a high-quality stainless steel kitchen sink it looks almost luxurious. And unlike a stone top, the mdf is not cold so you can even sit on it.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanWe have stretched the kitchen top to the window frame so it is broadened by the area of the window sill. Usually, there are heaters under the windows and ventilation is provided by cut vents. Placing the kitchen top to the wall with a window has added advantage: after opening the window the top will turn into a bar accessible directly from the balcony. The orientation of the lounge suite allows lying on its elongated section as close to the window as possible. For reading there are two separated lamps – one is suspended in the corner and another is on the wall. Under the armrest there is a partially hidden subwoofer. The large full-height window optimally connects theinterior with the exterior.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanWhen watching TV amenity is enhanced by dimmed led spotlights on the ceiling above the mezzanine. This kind of lighting works best when one of the interior walls is lit, in our case the one with the bookcase and plywood. The perforated sheet metal on the mezzanine floor lets light through and projects the sheet lattice onto the pine plywood. Pine plywood boards 2.4 x 1.2 m beat any wood floorings we have used so far. They consist of a pine plywood boards with a tongue and groove joint. The boards can be ground or varnished as ordinary parquet. We like the wooden board structure since it is authentic and shows off the natural structure of the wood.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanA dining table in the middle of the room has a dominant position and can sit eight persons. It is made of massive timber with a metallic base of the same colour as the roof structure. In order to accentuate the dominant position of the table we used massive timber that was darker than timber in the rest of the interior. Dining at a massive table with the industrial metallic base is a treat. During breakfast, when the table is suffused with eastern sun, natural structure of timber is more evident. Little cracks resulting from massive timber drying are not a problem, on the contrary – they accentuate its natural character even more.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanIn a loft every part of a day is different and special. In the late afternoon with lights on, the dining table would shine under the warm light from pendants. Individual lamps can be controlled separately, allowing infinite number of scenarios and ambiences. The turnable TV set creates optical boundary between the living room and the dining hall. After turning the TV towards the kitchen the dining table turns into a full-size workplace. Inventively, a computer and a stereo system are hidden in a kitchen cabinet facing towards the living room and connected to the screen by a underfloor duct. Resulting solution is visually clean without any cables. Pure tidiness is what we like.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanFrom the mezzanine the daytime zone can be seen and thanks to its geometry and the narrow balcony we have an interesting view of the street below that cannot be seen from the lower level of the day zone. Suspended industrial lights do (not) divide the space optically so they suit those who love high rooms as well as those who do not. A typical detail of the loft consists of the black steel structure of the roof and mezzanine, pine boards on the walls and on the floor, as well as white colour of the walls and the atypical furniture. The time-proven combination provides congenial background for everyday life in the apartment as neutral and natural space where its occupants stand out.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanIn spite of frequent demand by young families asking a bathtub for children we used a big shower enclosure with a small sitting step. This step makes the shower more comfortable than a bath and its dimensions allow to use a little baby tube for bathing babies. The mason shower enclosure with a drain contains niches for shampoos and everything is in place.Save this picture!© Peter CintalanIn the simple white bedroom a noticeable pine structure of the floor is dominant. For the tailor-made bed the same textile as for the lounge suite in the living room was used. The wall opposite to the bed was designed as a wardrobe. The bedroom clearance is the same as in the day zone. Significant cubage of the bedroom means more air and – as a result – better sleep. The tailor-made wardrobe filling up the wall facing the bed is the main storage space in the master bedroom. The wardrobe is nice thanks to its simplicity and design – both minimalistic and functional. Aluminium handgrips are functional and effective at the same time, changing a common white closet into a nice accessory.Project gallerySee allShow less’The Future Will Just Have to Wait’: London’s 10,000 Year MasterplanArchitecture NewsAA Visiting School: AarhusEventProject locationAddress:Bratislava, SlovakiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Purdue’s Hurt: Pork Outlook Better for ’19 but Still Operating at…

first_img Purdue’s Hurt: Pork Outlook Better for ’19 but Still Operating at a LossPurdue Ag Economist Dr. Chris Hurt spoke at the Fort Wayne Farm Show last week to discuss his outlook for 2019. He gave Hoosier Ag Today his expectations for corn, beans, and wheat at the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo last month, so this time we focus on the livestock industry, hogs in particular.Hurt says 2018 was a tough year for pork producers and he’s hopeful that 2019 will be a bit better. He has his fingers crossed that trade issues with Mexico and China will be resolved soon.“That’s going to allow us to export about 8 percent more pork at some higher prices. We’re looking at around $49 average price for 2019. That still will be some loss, but last year, ’18, we had losses about $12 a head. We expect that to be more like $5 to $6 a head, and that would be for average cost producers. Low cost producers still would be probably covering cost or making a little money.”I asked Hurt if his numbers could come in low if we can work out a trade deal with China and we find out how bad African Swine Fever has hit the country. He says it’s possible as China currently produces 97% of their own pork.“And what that means is that since only 3 percent of their total consumption is imported, a one percent loss of their production means they will increase imports by a third. That’s a huge number.”Hurt says even if we don’t come to an agreement with China, there will still be opportunities available.“They’re going to import more of that pork from Canada and Europe, but that’s going to give the United States an opportunity to sell to some of those markets. So, even if we don’t get the trade problem settled with China, we think there would be a big benefit to more US pork exports in an African swine fever spreading in China.” By Eric Pfeiffer – Jan 21, 2019 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Purdue’s Hurt: Pork Outlook Better for ’19 but Still Operating at a Loss Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue’s Hurt: Pork Outlook Better for ’19 but Still Operating at a… Previous articleLegal Advice for Tough Financial TimesNext articleMIFMA food safety funds to train vendors, farmers Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Where Zombie Properties Are Accumulating A new report indicated that 1.6 percent of all homes in the U.S. are vacant, numbering 1,570,265 residential properties, with 7,960 or 3.7% of those vacant properties in the process of foreclosure, otherwise known as “zombie foreclosures.” That is according to ATTOM Data Solutions’ newly released Q3 2020 Vacant Property and Zombie Foreclosure Report.  The Company’s most recent vacant properties analysis showed that while the number of properties in the process of foreclosure (215,886) in Q3 2020 is down 16% from Q2 2020 (258,024), the percentage of those properties that have been abandoned as zombie foreclosures is up from 3% in Q2 2020. The report suggested that despite the increase, “as the federal government attempts to shield the housing market from an economic slide stemming from the Coronavirus pandemic, the 7,961 zombie foreclosure properties continue to represent a very small portion – just one in every 12,500 homes – of the nation’s 99.4 million residential properties.” According to ATTOM’s Q3 2020 vacant property and zombie foreclosure report, states where zombie-foreclosure rates exceed the national percentage are clustered in the Midwest and South. Those states include Kansas (15%, or one in seven, properties in the foreclosure process), Missouri (11.2%, or one in nine), Georgia (11%, or one in nine), Kentucky (10.7%, or one in nine) and Tennessee (10.3%, or one in 10). The analysis also reports that states where the rates fall below the national level are mainly in the Northeast and West. Those states include Utah (1.1%, or one in 87 properties in the foreclosure process), Idaho (1.2%, or one in 84), New Jersey (1.6%, or one in 62), Colorado (1.8%, or one in 56) and California (2%, or one in 50). Among 158 metro areas analyzed with at least 100,000 residential properties in Q3 2020, the highest zombie-foreclosure rates are in Peoria, IL (16.4% of properties in the foreclosure process); Wichita, KS (15.3%); Kansas City, MO (13.4%); Omaha, NE (12.7%) and Cleveland, OH (12.6%). More-detailed ratio-of-”zombie-foreclosures” data is included on the ATTOM website. In general, the recent ATTOM article deep dives into the company’s data to uncover the top 10 “zombie-fied” ZIP codes, which include: Those zips include 44108 in Cleveland, OH (44.1%, 63 zombies); 44112 in Cleveland, OH (34.8%, 47 zombies); 44105 in Cleveland, OH (27.6%, 48 zombies); 61604 in Peoria, IL (25.7%, 29 zombies); 13601 in Watertown, NY (20.8%, 27 zombies); 44128 in Cleveland, OH (18.0%, 23 zombies); 44120 – Cleveland, OH (17.6%, 23 zombies); 12078 in Gloversville, NY (17.4%, 19 zombies); 60419 in Dolton, IL (16.5%, 17 zombies); and 14701 in Jamestown, NY (15.7%, 24 zombies). The report’s methodology is as follows: “ATTOM Data Solutions analyzed county tax assessor data for more than 98 million single-family homes and condos for vacancy, broken down by foreclosure status and, owner-occupancy status.

Pennsylvania authorities warn residents of possibility of more hidden explosives after mysterious booms

first_imgBucks County District Attorney’s Office(PHILADELPHIA) — Amid an ongoing investigation into a spate of mysterious explosions that shook northeastern Pennsylvania earlier this year, authorities warned residents there could still be explosives in the area.The warning comes after investigators learned some explosive devices allegedly deployed by a couple across a rural part of Bucks County several months ago may have failed to detonate and could still be live.“This is more an FYI than an SOS,” Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said in a statement Tuesday. “Nonetheless, we will continue to do our best to protect you by working hard to find any unexploded devices that may remain. If you find something suspicious, please do not investigate it on your own. Call 911.”The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office released images of devices that authorities have seized thus far in the investigation, including one that looks like a small, black round bomb with a long, green wick. Others appeared to be contained in white or dark-colored bottles, also with long, green wicks.The multi-agency probe remains active as authorities, including the Pennsylvania State Police, the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, continue searching for any and all devices allegedly crafted and distributed by David Surman Jr. and his girlfriend, Tina May Smith.Surman and Smith, both 31, face a slew of criminal charges stemming from the investigation into reports of about 30 explosions within a five-mile radius of upper Bucks County from early April to late June, many of which occurred near the couple’s home in Milford Township, authorities said.The investigation has largely focused on the greater Quakertown area, especially Milford Township, as well as near Ottsville and Upper Black Eddy.Upper Black Eddy resident Nick Zangli said he first heard the loud booms on May 12 before dawn, causing him to jump out of bed.“I happened to be awake and it scared the heck out of me,” Zangli told ABC owned-and-operated station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia. “It was definitely a very large explosion.”Surman, who owns a Quakertown-based chemical company, was arrested June 28 and charged with making or possessing bombs, as well as several related offenses, after authorities discovered four bombs at his residence, along with suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.Ten firearms and an array of chemicals used in the assembly of bombs were also seized from Surman’s home, according to charging documents.The largest of the bombs “was over 18 inches in length, had four fuses all twirled together and was ready to be detonated,” Weintraub told reporters at a press conference that day.Forensic analysis of the seized materials has since linked Surman to evidence collected at several of the blast sites, according to the district attorney’s office.Surman was released from jail after posting 10 percent of his $750,000 bail, WPVI-TV reported. But he was arrested again on Oct. 10 and charged with possessing child pornography after a search of his seized computer uncovered dozens of illicit images and videos, according to an affidavit of probable cause.Surman was released after posting 10 percent of his $500,000 bail, WPVI-TV reported.Last Friday, Surman’s girlfriend was arrested and charged as a co-conspirator. Smith allegedly drove while Surman threw the improvised explosive devices out the window of the vehicle. Smith told authorities she was with her boyfriend on three such occasions, according to an affidavit of probable cause.Smith was released from jail after posting 10 percent of her $1 million bail. She and Surman are awaiting their next court appearance.A trial date has not been set at this time, according to WPVI-TV.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

President Donald Trump’s new Space Force will fall under Air Force

first_imgChip Somodevilla/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — The Pentagon has decided to house President Donald Trump’s “Space Force” under the Department of the Air Force, according to a U.S. official with knowledge of a draft legislative proposal for the nation’s newest military service.The proposal calls for the creation of the new service within the the Air Force, in a manner similar to how the Marine Corps is part of the Department of the Navy. The Space Force would be led by a chief of staff who would also serve on the Joint Chiefs of Staff along with representatives from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and the National Guard, the official said.It’s a victory for the Air Force which has sought to keep control of the U.S. military’s space assets and currently manages a three-star Space Command that is headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado and is responsible for 30,000 personnel worldwide.The decision was first reported by Defense News.The proposal, which has the support of the Pentagon’s senior leadership, could be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for inclusion in the Department of Defense budget as soon as this week, the official said.Ultimately, the service’s establishment will require legislation from a Congress which has been divided over how the military might restructure to counter threats from China and Russia in space.The incoming chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., has already expressed his opposition to the creation of a separate service because of its cost. The Air Force has estimated that a Space Force could cost as much as $13 billion over the first five years. But Deputy Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, who has led the Pentagon’s effort to realize the establishment of a Space Force, has said it could be less than $5 billion.An Air Force spokesperson referred questions about the draft proposal to Shanahan’s office.“In concert with White House guidance, we are moving forward with a legislative proposal for Space Force,” Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, a spokesman for Shanahan, told ABC News.The decision to house the Space Force within the Air Force runs counter to what Trump has expressly outlined.“We are going to have the Air Force, and we are going to have the Space Force — separate but equal,” the president said in June.Earlier this week, Vice President Mike Pence announced that Trump would soon sign a new “space policy directive” to create the sixth branch of the armed forces that the administration hopes to stand up before the end of 2020. He held a meeting with Defense Secretary James Mattis at the Pentagon on Wednesday to discuss U.S. space operations.On Tuesday, Trump signed a memorandum establishing U.S. Space Command as the military’s 11th unified combatant command.Distinct from a Space Force and the existing Air Force Space Command, the combatant command will change how the Department of Defense approaches war-fighting in space by centralizing its space operations from across the U.S. military into one place. A Space Force service, on the other hand, would likely focus on the recruiting, training and equipping of service members for the space mission.Like the military’s other combatant commands, the new Space Command — which was announced by the administration earlier this year — will be led by a four-star general and draw on capabilities and personnel from the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy.Tuesday’s memorandum directed Mattis to recommend officers for nomination and Senate confirmation to serve as the commander and deputy commander. Unlike the creation of a Space Force military service, the establishment of Space Command won’t require Congressional legislation.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
