The new urban development of Tehran in the recent decades has imposed alterations to the ratio of open and semi-open spaces to the closed spaces in residential units. These changes has enormously affected the lifestyle of Tehranians in the recent years to such and extend that smaller apartment units have minimum access to open or semi-open spaces. The research focus of this project was to explore the urgent need for new residential models in Tehran.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffLocated in the Ozgol neighborhood of Tehran, the site of the project was a 10*22m plot, next to an unbuildable piece of land. Therefore, the building could have facades on three sides (North, South, and East). Consisting of a duplex (2nd and 3rd floors) and a guest unit (1st floor), the three storey residential building was designed for a single family.Save this picture!© Deed studioSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Parham TaghioffThe aim of the project was to transform the common “Infill” residential typology by extending open and semi-open spaces into the building. Providing natural ventilation and lighting as well as maximizing the engagement of green spaces with different functions of the house were all considered during the design process.Save this picture!© Deed studioThe narrow width of the site imposed restrictions on the interior planning. These restrictions motivated the design team to rethink the typology of the vertical circulation through the building and to rearrange it into a longitudinal semi-open staircase along one side of the building. This staircase connects the backyard to the open-to-sky void on the front side of the building, providing fresh air circulation in every floor. This space acts as a corridor, providing visual connection between the backyard, the sky, and the city.Save this picture!© Deed studioAnother important design element was to provide functional flexibility to the main balcony in relation to the exterior and the interior. This was achieved by creating a space that could be transformed to open, semi open, and closed spaces in different weather conditions.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffDuring the winter, this space becomes a part of the enclosed interior. During the summer, on the other hand, it could become a semi open balcony. This space is covered by an automated operable roof on top and is separated from the exterior and the interior of the building through operable glass openings.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffSpatial Organization:The width of the building was divided into 3 sections, organizing the interior spaces. The semi open balcony is located in the middle division in both plan and section, and all the vertical circulations are placed in one division to optimize space utilization throughout the building.Save this picture!Open and close diagramMaterial Palette:Traditional Brick was used both as the base and as the finishing of the exterior facades, the circulation corridors, as well as the voids throughout the building. Rotated brick blocks were implemented on some parts of the façade to allow sunlight penetration and view to the exterior, while minimizing overlook to the building. Sunlight variations during the day creates a variety of light and shadow patterns. The intention here was to emphasize on the importance of sunlight variations during different seasons of the year.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffProject gallerySee allShow lessThames Lido / Marshall and Kendon ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Fuzhou Strait Culture and Art Centre / PES-ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ozgol, Tehran, IranLocation to be used only as a reference.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Housing Trust Fund HUD Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Mark Calabria has announced that he has authorized the disbursement of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s affordable housing allocations for 2019 to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Housing Trust Fund of $326.4 million and to the Department of the Treasury for the Capital Magnet Fund of $175.8 million.In early 2019, the National Housing Conference (NHC) along with its coalition members submitted a letter to then-FHFA Acting Director Joseph Otting on Monday, urging the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to continue allocations to the Capital Magnet Fund (CMF) and the National Housing Trust Fund (HTF) in 2019 and beyond.The CMF is a program created in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA), administered by the Treasury Department, and is open to community development financial institutions and non-profit housing organizations like Habitat for Humanity. Its purpose is to develop, preserve, rehabilitate, or purchase affordable housing, as well as related economic development activities such as day care centers, community health clinics, and workforce development centers.According to the letter, the CMF provided funding for non-profit developers and lenders to do pre-development work, create revolving loan funds, establish loan loss reserves, and provide loan guarantees—all critical pieces of affordable housing and community development. So far the CMF has received four rounds of funding totaling $434 million, which has or will help to attract $13.5 billion in other capital into these projects.In the first three years of HTF, $659.8 million has been allocated to states. Because the HTF is administered as a block grant, each state has the flexibility to decide how to best use HTF resources to address its most pressing housing needs. Most states have chosen to use their HTF investment to build and preserve affordable rental housing for extremely low-income veterans, seniors, people with disabilities or special needs, and people experiencing homelessness.

State police investigator recognized for tracking down child rapist

first_img ITHACA, N.Y. –– New York State Police Investigator Dennis Brown was recognized Monday for spearheading the investigation that led to the arrest, and later conviction, of a man who raped a child.In July, Dale E. Morrissette, 21, of Dryden, was sentenced to five years of incarceration and 10 years of probation after pleading guilty to having sex with a 14-year-old and sending indecent materials to girls ranging in age from 12 to 16.The investigation into Dale Morrisette relied heavily on victim testimony and cooperation to be able to engage in traditional police tactics for investigating sexual abuse. New York State Police engaged in a “controlled call” during the investigation, using the victim to lure Morrisette into a confession.The Kiwanis Club of Ithaca-Cayuga recognized Brown on Monday for his efforts with the Frank G. Hammer Officer of the Month Award.District Attorney Matthew Van Houten spoke at the Kiwanis reception, giving the law enforcement present a piece of advice.“As a police officer take away the word persistence. Think about that during your daily work because it’s a really important word,” he said. “It’s not a glamorous word necessarily but it’s a word that can make a difference – in your cases and in the community.” Senior investigator for the State Police in Ithaca, Aaron Lewis, said this case took patience and persistence.“A lot of the times these young girls aren’t that cooperative. They are consenting to this type of activity even though they can’t consent under the law,” he said. “When Dennis first interviewed this young woman she was not cooperative at all … but he was persistent and worked closely with (child protective services). Additional interviews were conducted and he won the girl’s trust over.”According to previous court records, Morrissette sent sexual messages, photographs and videos to four girls between the ages of 12 and 16. He also asked young girls to send him nude photographs of themselves and threatened to inflict self-harm or engage in violence if they did not comply, records state.Brown joined the state police in Ithaca in July 2018. However, he now works at Troop C headquarters in Sidney.Investigator Brown is glad that he could bring the defendant to justice but warns parents to keep an eye on their children’s social media activity.“A bigger problem would be people not monitoring what their kids are doing on social media,” he said. “I think some of these could have been prevented. … I see it as a pattern of behavior that unfortunately is more and more common with the use of social media.” Your Crime & Courts news is made possible with support from: Tagged: kiwanis club, new york state police, Officer of the Month Anna Lamb Anna Lamb is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice.Questions?

San Francisco passes resolution to declare NRA a ‘domestic terrorist organization’

first_imgAlthom/iStock(SAN FRANCISCO) — San Francisco directed the fight over increased gun control directly at the National Rifle Association this week, passing a resolution that declares the organization a “domestic terrorist organization.” The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve the resolution on Tuesday and urged other cities, states and the federal government to do the same.Board member Catherine Stefani wrote the resolution in July after a gunman opened fire at a festival in Gilroy, California, killing four, including two children. There have been several deadly mass shootings across the country since then.The resolution accuses the NRA of spreading “misinformation and propaganda” and links it to an “epidemic of gun violence” that’s responsible for more than 36,000 deaths and 100,000 injuries each year.“The NRA has done more to perpetuate and create the sick gun violence epidemic that is terrorizing our country,” Stefani said at the meeting ahead of the vote Tuesday. “They buy off politicians, prevent common sense gun violence legislation, prevent gun violence research and tell us and everybody that it’s the video games, movies or mental illness.”There are currently 393 million guns in the U.S., which exceeds the country’s total population, according to the board’s research.“Every country on this earth is exposed to these issues and influences in equal measure and yet only the United States faces this kind of mass gun violence. The difference is guns. None of our peer countries have assault rifles on their streets,” Stefani said. “If more guns meant more safety, America would be the safest country in the world.”The resolution urges the city to limit doing business with vendors associated with the NRA, the nation’s top gun advocacy group, but it does not put in place any new regulation or enforcement measures.The NRA responded to the vote in a number of tweets on Wednesday, including one that encouraged members to include the “IAmTheNRA” hashtag to stand in solidarity with the organization.“This stunt is an effort to distract from the problems facing #SanFrancisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and petty crime, to name a few. Their (sic) wasting taxpayer dollars to declare 5M law-abiding Americans domestic terrorists, and it’s shameful,” the organization wrote in a tweet Wednesday.“This is a reckless assault on a law-abiding organization, it’s (sic) members, and the freedoms they all stand for. We remain undeterred — guided by our values and belief in those who want to find real solutions to violence,” it added in a separate tweet. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
