first_img Area:  6200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoText description provided by the architects. Gunillankallio area is the first part of the new Kruunuvuorenranta residential area in eastern Helsinki. The project comprises three five storey apartment buildings next to the public Lorentzinkallio park (forest). The project is part of the subsidized HITAS –apartment program organized by the city of Helsinki. Furthermore, the project is the winning proposal of an architectural competition arranged by the city of Helsinki.Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoThe site is a rocky slope facing northwest. The garage is below the courtyard on basement/street level. The basic C-shape of the buildings’ floor plan is formed by following the contours of the site. This both enables the buildings to adapt to the demands of the slope and also orientates views from the apartments to the surroundings instead of the neighbouring buildings. The triangular shape of the balconies also emphasizes this aspect.Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoThe apartments also benefit from the C-shaped floor plan by providing more façade, minimizing spaces without natural light and creating a triangulated series of spaces in the bigger family apartments. The buildings are characterized by the triangular cantilevered balconies and the narrow windowless northern façade, which is further accentuated by a cloud-like relief made of slightly modified off the shelf bricks. The monochromatic facades are of rough off-white handmade brick, white concrete and white painted steel.Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Smith House / Richard Meier & PartnersArchitecture ClassicsPhong House / VHL.ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Koirasaarentie 32, 00870 Helsinki, FinlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Date loaf

first_imgThis straightforward and reliable cake both tastes good and is low in fat.

Protesters return in Bahamas

first_imgNewsRegional Protesters return in Bahamas by: – March 22, 2011 By Chester RobardsGuardian Staff ReporterNASSAU, Bahamas — Opponents of the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) sale took to the streets of Nassau again on Monday to protest the government’s decision, as the debate over the matter began in Parliament.The protesters, many displaying their political affiliations on t-shirts, marched on Bay Street with signs, Bahamian flags and several bull horns, shouting and singing.One of the first songs the protesters sang when they approached Rawson Square was The Bahamas’ national anthem.Their signs were mostly anti-Free National Movement (FNM), some with slogans like “Fire Ingraham” and “Stop the world and let the FNM off,” while others decried the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless Communications/LIME (CWC) with jeers such as “Epic Fail” and “Politicians vote for Lime: You’re Fired.”One sign even called for the Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (URCA) to be done away with.Demonstrators could not overrun police barricades to enter Rawson Square this time, as the barricades were chained together. The crowd was smaller than the last group to demonstrate against the sale in February.On Monday, the demonstrators succeeded in opening the barricades on Parliament Street and for a few minutes several protesters poured through the opening that was created.Police quickly replaced the barriers and calmed the crowd.During the last protest on Bay Street, police were forced to beat some of the protesters with batons as they pushed barricades aside.Police were out in full force on Monday, though not in the numbers present at prior protests, suggesting they were convinced that their reinforced barricades would hold back the line of protesters.As ministers left the House of Assembly they were booed by several protesters.When Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham left the House the crowd began a cacophony of boos and jeers.As Ingraham walked over to the Churchill Building surrounded by police officers, some protesters attempted to follow him, shouting at him as they ran across Rawson Square.Bamboo Town MP Branville McCartney, who resigned from the Free National Movement on Sunday, received a warm welcome from the crowd, however.During much of the protest, president of the Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) Bernard Evans was in court where an appeal against a decision of the Supreme Court regarding the privatization of BTC was being heard.The unions are seeking to block the sale through court action.However, Bahamas Communications and Public Managers Union (BCPMU) president William Carrol stood with his fellow BTC workersOther union leaders joined in the protest, including president of the National Congress of Trade Unions of the Bahamas Jennifer Isaacs Dotson“We have quite a number of affiliated unions under the NCTUB to support the Committee to Save BTC,” Isaacs-Dotson said.“Whatever we do we need to combine our efforts. There is no sense in us separating our efforts to try to get the government to change [its] mind in selling BTC, so we’re all here together and working together in collaboration to still say to the government, stop, review and cancel this decision to sell,” she said.The unions maintain that they will not relent until the government changes its position on the sale of BTC and will continue to march on Parliament until the sale of BTC to CWC is dead.Source: Caribbean News Now!
