A ‘residential homestead’ with twelve apartments and a collective garden house has been realized on the site of a former organic nursery of the Cordaan care organization in Diemen. The building site is on the edge of a new residential area that is bordered by sports fields, a railway line, the Weespertrekvaart (i.e. a canal) and the nature reserve along the banks of the river Diem.Save this picture!© Luuk KramerFor this suburban location, an elongated building volume has been designed with twelve owner-occupied apartments on a collective yard. The design principle has been to produce a volume with a clear relationship with an adjacent monumental barn. To emphasize the idea of an agricultural building, two characteristic design choices have been made. The outside spaces of the dwellings have been laid on the heads of the volume with a fully glazed façade and the building skin is draped over the volume like an omnipresent, more closed ‘cape’. Two chimneys emphasize the rural character of the building volume. Parking takes place on this private property. Furthermore, there is an identical materialized ‘babybarn’ with bicycle storage facilities and a communal garden room, adjacent to the shared vegetable and herb garden. The yard has been deposited to the public road with a red beech hedge.Save this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Luuk KramerThe aim for the project is a meticulous structural development with a traditional and refined detailing. The façades, the roof and the chimneys are detailed as one continuous articulated casing, covered with French ceramic slates in earthy tones – a subtle reference to the ceramic attributes of the former nursery. The roof surface is equipped with concealed gutters while the rainwater drains are included in the construction of the skin. The building façade is equipped with aluminum windows with turn-and-slide wings to the outside. The frames are encased in sheet steel frames and are placed exactly on slate measures in the façade.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Luuk KramerSave this picture!First Floor PlanPhotovoltaic panels are recessed into the roof surface, with which the building meets the requirements for energy performance. The ends of the main volume are made of dark pigmented prefab concrete frames in which the balconies are incorporated. The slates fold around the beveled concrete frames and thus mark the archetypal building contour. The façade openings to the balconies consist of facade-filling aluminum sliding doors. The cantilevered, slightly sloping balconies are trimmed with a subtle strip steel fence.Save this picture!© Luuk KramerProject gallerySee allShow lessZaha Hadid Architects’ UAE Central Hub Inspired by Water DropletsArchitecture NewsNiczky Apartment / Béres ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Diemen, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_img KenyaAfrica January 23, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders denounces crackdown on alternative press Reports Organisation News Reporters Without Borders accused the Kenyan government of trying “to choke off” the “alternative” press by imposing exorbitant publishing fees. Since 10 January numerous independent newspapers have been systematically seized and news-vendors have been arrested because of non-payment of the fees.The “alternative” press is made up of a number of independent small-circulation publications such as Kenya Confidential, Wembe, The Summit, New Post Newspaper, Citizen weekly, Family, The Independent, Dispatch, MirrorPolice seized more than 15,000 copies of newspapers, considered to be illegal, from 10 to 12 January. More than 20 newspaper vendors were arrested and then sentenced to fines of 20,000 shillings (204 euros). Since they have limited financial means, most of the newspapers have been unable to pay the increased fees since 2002. As a result most of them have continued to appear without paying the fees, which are a form of libel insurance bond.The international press freedom organisation said it was concerned by these threats to pluralism of news and information and urged the authorities to take the necessary steps to allow the newspapers to appear again freely. “The government is going to choke off the ‘alternative’ press by forcing them to pay exorbitant publication fees, that were hiked from 10 000 shillings (102 euros) to one million shillings (10,200 euros) in 2002.”It is obvious that the 2002 reform of the press law was intended to gradually gag smaller publications with limited resources,” it said. “The new government vaunts its commitment far and wide to democracy and freedom of expression. We have therefore asked the information minister, Raphael Tuju, to lift the bans which have been slapped on some media and to review its press law,” it added.The blow to the publications has meant they are gradually disappearing from the news stands.
