This house is located in an early 50´s residential neighborhood, more precisely at the western edge, in an area surrounded buy terraced houses, near the Restelo shopping street.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe main area of intervention was the rear part of the house, which was completely redrawn. Searching for a contrast with the main façade, we envisioned a fascia, opened by a series of windows and shutters resembling a pattern of traditional Portuguese tiles. This pattern works like a skin that filters the sun light and also protects the house from intruders.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIn order to give the top floor more habitable space, we created a mansard roof with three openings.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGAt the ground level we transformed the ground floor in one unique living area, joining together the entrance, the living room and the kitchen. A white volume coated with grate lines, disguises an area of a closet, social toilet and storage. This central core also performs a separation within spaces.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe staircase between the ground floor and the first floor are leaning on the left side of the entire volume. This was made in order to ensure an optimized living area and also a central passage to the first floor.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionWe planned for the first floor the private area, where the rooms are located, including a suite. To make this last request possible, with the areas we had, we placed a lavatory in the bed space that also worked as a sideboard. As for the shower cabin and the toilet, we merged them behind a glass wall, diluting the limits of the space, giving us a feeling of a much greater space.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFor the attic we idealized the mansard roof to give us the possibility of more livable area.

Can the organics survive the current economy?

first_imgEmail Print NewsCan the organics survive the current economy?By admin – April 10, 2009 722 Twitter Linkedin WhatsAppcenter_img Advertisement IT’s the dreaded and now, quite annoying, “R” word, but it has hit everything in its wake. Probably because we have let it. Food, is no different and as we get cuter with our purchases, some will let the luxury of good sound choices slip them by as they aim to make their money go further. Top of the list for the chop would be your free range meats and most likely your organic produce. Some producers may differ and others will agree, but figures released recently can indicate a slight decline in organic sales.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In Ireland, the decline is apparent but not fully quantified, but in the UK, sales of organic products present a mixed picture, according to a major report published by the Soil Association.Organic food sales have been hit across all sectors, as consumers tighten their belts in the face of the economic downturn. 2008 saw sales in both regions marginally rise by close on two per cent, but this statistic must be seen in the context of overall food price rises rather than sales volume increases.Industry analysts have said that this has been a really difficult period for all retail, and organic sales have suffered along with the rest of the economy. Reports of this nature describe a very mixed picture as consumers react to the financial crisis. But those consumers who are committed to organic products appear to be staying loyal. This shows the underlying resilience of the organic market, which it is believed will grow again once the economy picks up.Figures would suggest that the organic participants have their fan base and those that choose it as a way of life, but it also shows that the increase in conversion is not that forthcoming as people still adopt a “wait and see attitude”.Th UK based organic body, the Soil Association, issued a report recently and it shows there has been a sharp fall in sales of certain products, including fruit, bread and bakery products, soft drinks and prepared foodstuffs, although even in these sectors, some brands are bucking the recessionary trend. In tandem there has been dynamic growth in sales of organic food through farmers’ markets where figures increased an estimated 19 per cent.Tesco is still the market leader in terms of value despite a fall in organic sales of 9.9% in 2008. Other smaller areas of organic production such as textiles and health and beauty products have also experienced very significant growth.Organic shoppers, like all consumers, have been buying fewer premium products and prepared foods, and switching to lower-cost retailers. There is also a focus on cutting waste and cooking from scratch – sales of organic home cooking ingredients increased by a remarkable 13.5% in 2008, while sales of organic prepared foods dropped sharply.Core consumers who may be cutting back are still determined to stick to their organic principles. Over one third of committed organic consumers say they expect to spend more on organic food in 2009, and only 15% expect to spend less. Animal welfare issues attracted a high public profile in 2008 and sales of organic milk, cheese, some meat and poultry grow by 10.6%, 11.5%, 13.3% and 17.7% respectively, demonstrating that where the benefits of organic production are understood commitment remains firm among ethical consumers.Research shows that over a quarter of consumers who do not currently buy organic food “would like to know more about organic products than they do” suggesting potential to broaden the market still further in the future.Whilst volatility in the organic market looks set to remain in 2009, environmental and political challenges to our current food and farming systems will demand that we develop sustainable production methods in the future. Governments have agreed to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. Such cuts can only be achieved in agriculture by deriving fertility from sunshine and organic matter – as organic farmers do – rather than from fossil fuel-based chemical fertilisers. That is a core belief of the organic way and one that they encourage leaders to exploreOrganic farms like all business face uncertainty and volatility. But there are still significant opportunities in some areas – fruit and arable for instance and in developing genuinely local and regional supply networks. Collaboration will also be key to the success of many farm businesses. Facebook Previous articleThe Expert Comment – Paul NestorNext articleOne giant step into Limerick city adminlast_img read more

Red Rocks Makes Moves Against Scalpers, Implements New Ticket System

first_imgRed Rocks Amphitheatre, the iconic outdoor venue just outside Denver, Colorado, has just made a series of moves to fight against the prevalent ticket scalping for highly anticipated shows. As detailed by a release from Denver Arts and Venues, starting next year for the 2018 concert season, Red Rocks will begin to move toward using a digital ticket format—specifically, Flash Seats, which is similarly used at events like Phish’s annual summer-closing Dick’s Sporting Goods Park run in addition to other Colorado venues like 1st Bank Center and Pepsi Center. The release also noted a change that will require tickets in the first four rows to be exclusively used by the original purchaser.Red Rocks Is Hosting Its First-Ever New Year’s Eve Celebration This YearStarting February 1st, 2018, all tickets in the first four rows, including ADA seats, will be non-transferrable and switch over to the Flash Seats format. To ensure that ticket holders for the first row are the original purchaser, these tickets will only be seated with identification and ticket holders who arrive without the original purchaser will be barred from entry into the venue. As for rows 2 through 4, these seats will not require ID but similarly will not be transferable. As explained by Brian Kitts, Director of Marketing and Communications for Denver Arts and Venues, the policy is first addressing seats in the first four rows because they “are most likely to be fraudulently purchased and then resold on the secondary ticket market.”Why Taylor Swift’s Controversial New Ticketing System Sucks For All Of UsIn the spring, tickets for the entire venue will transfer over to the Flash Seats format. On April 1st, 2018, a new Red Rocks mobile app will be launched. The release of this mobile app comes ahead of May 15th, when ticket holders throughout the entire venue will need to use a registered Flash Seats ID or official Red Rocks mobile app to gain entry into the venue. Hard tickets will also be available to be requested, though this will cost an additional fee.StubHub And Viagogo Offices Raided By Authorities In UK Ticket Scalping InvestigationMany of these changes have been spurred by the 2016 lawsuit against Red Rocks, for which a handicap advocacy group sued the legendary venue because fans regularly and fraudulently bought tickets in the handicap seating area. The venue clearly has heard these complaints, explaining that these new policies “[allow] those row one seats to actually end up in the hands of people who need those, and then those other seats in rows one through four — those are the premium seats that you know real fans should have access to.”The use of Flash seats also cuts down on the use of duplicate paper tickets being copied and sold on Craiglist. As Kitts elaborated, “This works exactly like an airline where you show up with your credit card or your driver’s license and you know you’re verified right there on the spot.” However, while Flash Seats will ban the transfer of seats in the first four row, it will still allow tickets outside this section to be transferred via its website or app.New York State Forces Brokers To Pay Millions For Illegal Ticket Bot ScalpingWhile these changes may be unusual at first, Kitts is hopeful that the transition will go smoothly. As noted by 303 Magazine, “Ticketing has changed, audiences have changed and I think that 80 percent of our audience probably does absolutely everything on their phone anyway. I don’t think there’s going to be that much backlash. If there is somebody that needs help with this, if it’s an older audience, there will be staff on site that’s able to help.”[H/T 303 Magazine; Photo: ontheDL]last_img read more
