To create a clear structure, to use materials and details which evoke the atmosphere of minimalist architecture.Save this picture!© Manfred SeidReportMakovský & partners designed and built a terraced house in the Brno neighbourhood of Žabovřesky where the plots are typically narrow and constrained. Although this 105 m2 site faces a busy street we managed to create 1027 m3 of quiet comfortable space. The structure is divided into a four-story house and a one-story courtyard pavilion that meet/connect in a sunlit atrium.Save this picture!© Manfred SeidThe design of clear geometrical schema is reflected in the prefab concrete structure and aims to create a universal space on each floor. The proportions of the volumes, their zoning, and the dimensions of the exterior and interior spaces rigorously reflect the human scale. The transparency of the building, the architecture of both horizontal and vertical flat surfaces allows creating a continuous space between the street and the inner pavilion on this long, only 4.8m wide, plot. The exposed reinforced concrete load-bearing structure of the external skin intentionally contrasts with the dematerializing white colour of the transverse stiffening walls and the horizontal and vertical interior surfaces /thermal insulation, floor finishes/. This abstract solution creates an atmosphere of concentration and does not burden the human psyche with details. At the same time the large glazing on the front facade communicates with the busy street and the upper floors have views of the city.  Rational architecture and maximal reduction is a long-term programme of the Makovský & partners studio.Save this picture!© Manfred SeidThe main entrance from the street Minská opens to a corridor which leads to the atrium where is situated a steel staircase that makes access to the upper floors. Behind the dominant glass wall of the atrium is discovered the low courtyard pavilion – a “studio” lit by the skylights. The four-story building has a disposition repeated on all floors: two spaces with generous glazing which are separated by a core with minimalist bathroom and kitchenette.Save this picture!SectionThe constrained site with high ground water level required foundation on micro-piles. The limited width of 4.8m site was overcome by the prefabricated structure of the reinforced concrete external skin and stiffening internal walls. The insulation material Multipor was used to create a thermal comfort as well as to enhance fire protection.Save this picture!© Manfred SeidDuring the construction the Makovský & Partners office has learned how difficult and economically demanding is to build on terraced plot in the city development. The construction could be realized only thanks to the understanding and generosity of the investor.Save this picture!© Manfred SeidProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Legacy of Wells Coates: A Mini-Documentary About Modern IconsArchitecture NewsHouse 1 / Alexis DornierSelected Projects Share Year:  CopyMixed Use Architecture, Houses•Brno, Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/787398/mixed-use-house-makovsky-and-partners Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/787398/mixed-use-house-makovsky-and-partners Clipboard “COPY” Mixed Use House / Makovský & partnersSave this projectSaveMixed Use House / Makovský & partners CopyAbout this officeMakovský & partnersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesBrnoCzech RepublicPublished on May 15, 2016Cite: “Mixed Use House / Makovský & partners” 15 May 2016.

Jihadi group kills Iraqi cameraman in northern Syria

first_img RSF_en SyriaMiddle East – North Africa March 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation News Help by sharing this information March 8, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders is appalled and saddened by Iraqi freelance cameraman Yasser Faysal Al-Joumaili’s abduction and murder yesterday in northern Syria by members of the Jihadi group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).“Joumaili is the first foreign journalist to be murdered by an armed ‘opposition’ group in northern Syria’s so-called ‘liberated’ areas,” Reporters Without Borders said.”“His death underscores the importance of a concerted effort by the international community, by Syrian and international media freedom organizations and by all news providers to combat those who want to gag the media and silence those who work for them.”Reporters Without Borders is a partner in the “Free Press for Syria” campaign that was launched on 2 December to denounce a “deliberate strategy (by ISIS) to suppress media freedom and impose new generalized censorship on the Syrian people.”According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Joumaili had been in northern Syria for the past ten days doing a report for a Spanish news outlet. Several sources said he was kidnapped yesterday by ISIS members near Idlib and then killed execution-style. The exact circumstances of his death are not yet known. An experienced cameraman, Joumaili often worked for Al-Jazeera International and Reuters. Aged 35, he was from the Iraqi city of Fallujah and had three children.He is the twenty-seventh professional journalist and eighth foreign journalist to be killed in Syria since the start of the conflict in March 2011. At least 91 Syrian citizen-journalists have also been killed in connection with the provision of news and information.As Reporters Without Borders said in the report “Journalism in Syria, impossible job,” published on 6 November, Syria is the world’s most dangerous country for journalists and ISIS now poses the biggest threat to both Syrian and foreign news providers there. The group has been added to the Reporters Without Borders list of “predators of freedom of information.” Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists News News February 3, 2021 Find out more Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law December 5, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Jihadi group kills Iraqi cameraman in northern Syria Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria News Follow the news on Syrialast_img read more
