The holiday house is located on the highest point of Santorini Island, on ‘Prophet Ilias’ mountainside. The building faces to the southwest and has a view of the Aegean Sea and the volcanic landscape. The residence consists of a living room, a dining area, a kitchen, a main bedroom and two bathrooms oriented towards to the view.Save this picture!© Giorgos SfakianakisSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Giorgos SfakianakisThe elongated, rectangular form is nestled into the slope. The excavation material that has resulted during the construction period, was used to shape the main façade of the house and its surrounding landscape. The house is integrated to the cliff-side, leaving the least possible imprint.Save this picture!© Giorgos SfakianakisAim of the project is to merge the interior and exterior space of the house. The long, sliding glass door of 10meters length, opens and links the relaxation-cooking interior zone with the courtyard and the swimming pool. The interior space becomes an exterior one, under a shadow and at the same time expands into an infinity pool, an exterior lounge area and a wooden deck that compose the external space. Two main free standing walls highlight the two entrances of the holiday house, through two lateral staircases.Save this picture!© Giorgos SfakianakisInside the residence, sections made by bricks, wood and glass separate the different rooms. Skylights on the rooftop allow the natural light into the space. Natural materials like oak, walnut wood, grey and beige rough marbles and black steel create warmth, while some colourful pieces of furniture, create a joyful mood. Stone and concrete are the materials that define the exterior form of the house. Wild Mediterranean plants, some of them into cylindrical pots made by black steel, are sparsely placed outdoor.Save this picture!© Giorgos SfakianakisProject gallerySee allShow lessFloating Penthouse Berlin / Atelier ZafariSelected ProjectsTown Hall Eysturkommuna / Henning LarsenSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeKapsimalis ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTheraGreecePublished on August 10, 2018Cite: “Holiday House on Prophet Ilias Mountain / Kapsimalis Architects” 10 Aug 2018.

Juárez-based daily targeted again, call for probe into army abuses

first_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders calls on the federal justice and defence ministries to investigate a 4 June incident in the northern city of Ciudad Juárez in which soldiers beat several journalists including photographer José Luis González of El Diario, a regional newspaper that suffered a great deal in 2008. In a separate development, one of El Diario’s bureaux has just had to close because of threats believed to have come from a drug cartel.“The need to combat drug trafficking does not justify army mistreatment of media personnel,” Reporters Without Borders said. “An El Diario journalist had to go into exile because of the methods used by certain soldiers deployed in Chihuahua state to combat the drug cartels. In appointing an investigation into the attack on González and his colleagues, the federal justice and defence ministries must demonstrate that journalists, who are already threatened by the cartels, have nothing to fear from the security forces.”González, two TV cameramen and a photographer with the PM daily newspaper were assaulted by solders as they were filming and photographing the scene of a road accident in which four soldiers and a police patrol officer were injured. González was struck in the back, thrown to the ground, and beaten repeatedly with a rifle butt while one of the soldiers held him down with his boot.The incident came just a week after work was suspended at the El Diario bureau in Parral as a result of death threats against the staff. Journalists told Reporters Without Borders that the threats were prompted by an article about the detention of seven presumed members of the Sinaloa cartel. It named Román Valenzuela, one of the lieutenants of cartel chief Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, who is currently on the run.At the height of last year’s violence between the cartels, which left 1,600 dead in Chihuahua state alone, El Diario journalist Armando Rodríguez Carreón was murdered on 13 November, after seeking refuge in the United States. His murder remains unpunished. Other journalists went into exile at around this time.

Landmark ruling protects foreign staff under UK law

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article A landmark ruling made by a tribunal last week will mean staff working inthe UK on foreign contracts are protected under British employment law. Thetribunal in London judged that four flight attendants employed by US firmUnited Airlines, who had claimed they were denied the most basic of maternityrights, were subject to UK law. The flight attendants, who lived in London and worked out of Heathrow, weresuspended when they became pregnant after they refused to work long-distanceflights on their doctors’ advice. United Airlines argued that under US law itcould lay them off when they reached 31 weeks of pregnancy after they had usedup their sick leave entitlement. But the women said they should be treated under British law and claimed theyhad been sexually discriminated against. Barry Clarke, of Russell Jones & Walker, who represented the women, saidthe tribunal took the view that the employment relationship as a whole was muchmore closely connected to Britain. “This will have a major impact on a number of employees working indifferent sectors. As a result of developments in European legislation, UK lawhas recently been amended,” he said. “This case is the first to reflect the changes to the law. It confirmsthat it is much more difficult for an employer to avoid the implications ofBritish employment law.” Landmark ruling protects foreign staff under UK lawOn 1 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

The POOSH – Professional Organisations in Occupational Safety and Health –group is to run a one-day workshop on occupational asthma.

The workshop will provide the information necessary to gain an understandingof how and why asthma occurs, and the actions that can be taken to prevent it. Hans-Horst Konkolewsky, director of the European Agency for Safety andHealth at Work, will deliver the keynote address, and the programme will alsofeature plenary presentations on how workplace asthma is caused, the impact ofasthma on both employer and employee, and how asthma can be prevented.

House of Lords backing for keeping work time opt-out

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article A House of Lords report has recommended that the UK retain its opt-out tothe European Working Time Directive. The voluntary opt-out gives individual workers the choice to decide if theywant to work more than 48 hours a week. The chairman of the Lords sub-committee, Lord Williamson of Horton, saidthat the opt-out is one of the best ways for the UK to preserve the flexibilityit needs to compete globally. “Other EU member states regularly extend the 48-hour week by collectiveagreement. But in the UK only 36 per cent of the total workforce, and only 22per cent of those employed in the private sector, are covered by collectiveagreements,” he said. “On the whole the opt-out seems to work well. We haven’t foundsignificant evidence of adverse health and safety consequences. The Governmentshould look at ways of preventing workers from being coerced into working longhours if they don’t want to. But it’s important that those who want to workovertime should be able to do so.” Williamson said employers should also investigate more innovative ways ofavoiding long-hours working and encourage a good work-life balance.
