This project involves the conversion of an existing agricultural building, into a painter’s residence, in the Scottish Highlands. The former agricultural store is located beside the Spey River, on the outskirts of the town of Aviemore and one of the most sparsely populated regions in Europe The ‘Pityoulish’ estate, on which the building is sited includes similar agricultural buildings, individual residences, temporary shelters for walkers and fisherman, as well as larges areas of forest and arable land. Around 200 years old, the building is constructed of solid masonry, and through movement and the erosion of structural elements, was a product of its environments harsh extremes.Save this picture!© Oskar ProctorBrief. The client and owner of the estate provided a brief that had two principal criteria. The first was to stabilize the building, through the repair and replacement of its primary elements, and the introduction of insulation and utilities. The second was to convert the barn into a studio, not only for personal use but also as the potential base for a residency program. In doing so their aim was to illustrate how buildings of this sort (of which there are many examples locally, often unused and abandoned) can be adapted and utilized in order to avoid them falling into disrepair, whilst providing an unfamiliar use of the space that could potentially serve the local community, culturally.Save this picture!© Oskar ProctorSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Oskar ProctorThe building. The works themselves were split into two main phases. Given the limited budget, the primary task involved replacing and insulating the building’ roof and floor in order to provide robust, insulated cover and a base from which internal works could then take place on a more incremental basis, as prescribed by the funds available at the time, and in the future, were they to become available. The decision was therefore taken to split the space into two internal areas; a general store that would for the same function as the original barn as well as providing ancillary storage for the adjoining space and would feature minimal internal works, and an adjoining studio, with direct internal access between the two.Save this picture!© Oskar ProctorWithin the studio space, all internal floors and partitions were removed. In their place, a double-height volume provides the main studio space, served by newly introduced roof lights that offer natural light, that compliments additional gallery lighting. Overlooking this volume is a mezzanine in which a bedroom is located, with a small kitchen and bathroom located beneath. More generally, all internal walls and ceilings were lined so as to allow for the hanging of works in the future, both by the owner and possible future residents.Save this picture!© Oskar ProctorProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture and Topography: 15 Projects with Different Approaches to ReliefMiscShortlist Revealed for Tamayouz Women in Architecture and Construction 2019Architecture News Share Architects: Morales Finch Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Year:  West Croftmore Renovation / Morales FinchSave this projectSaveWest Croftmore Renovation / Morales Finch ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924213/west-croftmore-renovation-morales-finch Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924213/west-croftmore-renovation-morales-finch Clipboardcenter_img Area:  145 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMorales FinchOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationScotlandAviemoreUnited KingdomPublished on September 06, 2019Cite: “West Croftmore Renovation / Morales Finch” 06 Sep 2019.

Joint appeal to Afghan government by Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica one month after interpreter’s abduction

first_img Receive email alerts Il Manifesto reporter Giulana Sgrena, a former hostage in Iraq, also spoke at the demonstration, saying there should be no difference in the treatment of Italian hostages and those of other nationalities. On other side of the podium from which she spokes, large photos of Nasqhbandi and Hanefi were displayed. Parliamentarians Giovanni Russo Spena and Furio Colombo, and another former hostage in Iraq, Simona Torretta, also paid tribute to the two captives.Ten Afghan and Italian journalists, including the president of the National Union of Afghan Journalists, Fazel Sancharaki, gave a news conference yesterday in Kabul in which they also appealed to the Taliban to free their fellow journalist, Nasqhbandi.Corriere della Sera reporter Lorenzo Cremonesi said: “We, Afghan and Italian journalists and media assistants, would like to appeal directly to the Taliban and in particular to Commander Mullah Dadullah, who is holding our colleague Adjmal Nasqhbandi hostage, to release him immediately.” Duilio Giammaria of the Italian TV network Rai called on the Afghan authorities to give the so far unknown reasons why Hanefi is being held. RSF_en One month after Adjmal Nasqhbandi’s abduction on 5 march, Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica urged the Afghan government to do everything possible to release the Afghan interpreter Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Reporters Without Borders and the Italian daily La Repubblica today issued a joint appeal to the Afghan government to do everything possible to obtain the release of La Repubblica correspondent Daniele Mastrogiacomo’s Afghan interpreter, Adjmal Nasqhbandi, who will begin his second month in captivity tomorrow.Nasqhbandi and Mastrogiacomo were kidnapped together on 5 March but, unlike the Italian reporter, who was released on 19 March, Nasqhbandi is still being held by Taliban under the command of Mullah Dadullah.Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica also urged the Afghan authorities to immediately release Rahmatullah Hanefi, the personnel chief of a hospital run by the Italian NGO Emergency in the southern town of Lashkar Gah, who has reportedly been held without charge in an Afghan prison since 20 March.“Mullah Dadullah’s death threats against Nasqhbandi are extremely reprehensible,” the press freedom organisation and the newspaper said. “It is clear the Taliban have already obtained a great deal by means of this deplorable blackmail for which there is no justification. We call on the Afghan government and all those with any influence to do everything they can to get Nasqhbandi freed. We also call for Hanefi’s immediate release. His arrest without charge and without any reason being given is unacceptable.”Dadullah addressed President Hamid Karzai in a video broadcast by the TV channel Sky TG24 on 29 March, threatening to kill Nasqhbandi if Karzai did not release two of Dadullah’s men in return. “If Karzai really is Afghanistan’s president, he must negotiate Adjmal’s release” he said. “Karzai has so far negotiated the release of foreigners but never the release of an Afghan citizen. If there is no negotiation, we will kill him.” The Taliban originally promised to release Nasqhbandi at the same time as Mastrogiacomo. Their Afghan driver, Sayed Agha, who was kidnapped with them, was beheaded on 16 March, three days before Mastrogiacomo was freed.Hanefi was reportedly arrested one day after Mastrogiacomo’s release, in which he played a key role. An Italian foreign ministry spokesman announced on 2 April that a Red Cross delegation had been able to visit Hanefi in an undisclosed location.During a demonstration by some 400 people on Navone Square in Rome on 1 April to demand the release of both Nasqhbandi and Hanefi, Mastrogiacomo’s sister read out a message from her brother to the Afghan and Italian governments, to the UN, to NGOs working in Afghanistan and to foreign embassies in Kabul. “Do your utmost to get my friends freed,” he said, adding: “My heart and my thoughts are with them.” AfghanistanAsia – Pacific March 11, 2021 Find out more AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Afghanistan to go further Newscenter_img Organisation News RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan June 2, 2021 Find out more May 3, 2021 Find out more April 4, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Joint appeal to Afghan government by Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica one month after interpreter’s abduction Help by sharing this information News News Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report sayslast_img read more
