The Aperture House is a home for a growing family that connects the comfort of a private dwelling with uninterrupted views of the Sydney city skyline, encompassed within a quiet neighbourhood. Part of the conceptual framework for the Willoughby residence grew from our relationship with the client and his work as an industrial designer. The notion of object making allowed us to work with shapes and geometry and introduced patterns and repetition to the design through shifting light, shadows & distinct geometric finishes.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanUpon entering the house light streams through the skylights, floating ceilings and unique geometric windows. The aperture of the circle played a significant role within the design, being used on a large scale to frame the foliage scattered sky. This was then repeated on a micro scale through a mesh balustrade. Both creating a unique play of light as the sun moves throughout the day.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe idea of the aperture came in to play again through the architecture of the split levels, constantly creating vistas and views through the home. Standing at the front door you can catch a glimpse all the way through to the children playing in the backyard. The screening between the mezzanine rumpus to the ground floor entertainment areas – a nod to Mashrabiya latticework from middle eastern homes – here suggestive of children observing parties, maintaining connectivity through the space both physically and emotionally.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanBeyond a home accommodating the needs of the family they experience a joy in the details. With the subtle use of recessed LEDs and tiles softly curving the bathroom ceiling, juxtaposed by the industrial materiality. The use of exposed concrete and steel beams being a further connection to the client’s background of Industrial Design.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanProject gallerySee allShow lessJiangnan Courtyard / PTArchitectsSelected ProjectsKnoxBhavan Studio / Knox Bhavan ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/916200/aperture-house-studio-p Clipboard Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyAbout this officeStudio POfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWilloughbyAustraliaPublished on May 04, 2019Cite: “Aperture House / Studio P” 03 May 2019.

Desire to silence outspoken journalists seen in murder attempt

first_img July 29, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Sri Lanka February 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Desire to silence outspoken journalists seen in murder attempt Organisation RSF_en News Receive email alerts Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Reporters Without Borders and its partner organization, Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka, firmly condemn an attempt to murder Sunday Leader journalist Faraz Shauketaly on the night 15 February, when he was shot and wounded by gunmen inside his Colombo home. Doctors say his life is no longer in danger.“This appalling shooting suggests that the enemies of media freedom are trying to silence those journalists who still dare to report the news freely,” Reporters Without Borders and Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka said.“Even if a thorough investigation is needed to determine the motive with certainty, there are already many indications that this attack was a reprisal for Shauketaly’s journalistic activities, especially as he had been threatened shortly after writing articles about government corruption and private sector embezzlement.“We urge the authorities to react to this attack without delay and, in their investigation, to focus on the possibility that it was linked to his work, which seems the most likely motive at this stage. Shauketaly must also be given police protection at the hospital where he is being treated and after he leaves it, as well.”Shauketaly was speaking by phone with editorial staff at the Sunday Leader from his home in the south Colombo district of Mount Lavina when three intruders appeared, cut his phone line and opened fire, wounding him in the neck.Foreign tourists staying in the guest house beside his home took him to Colombo National Hospital, where doctors managed to extract the bullet fragments from his neck during the next 24 hours.Witnesses say unidentified men went to his home two weeks ago, asking where he was. The Sunday Leader said: “It was clear that the attack on Faraz was well planned and coordinated as the gunmen knew the exact time he was at home on Friday, where his room is located and if he was alone in his room.”This attack comes just weeks after the third anniversary of cartoonist Prageeth Ekneligoda’s disappearance on 24 January 2010, the fourth anniversary of Sunday Leader editor Lasantha Wickrematunga’s murder on 8 January 2009 and the four anniversary of an attempt on the lives of Rivira editor Upali Tennakoon and his wife, also in January 2009.Sri Lankan journalists are constantly the targets of threats and reprisals, often by the government. Former Sunday Leader editor Frederica Jansz recently talked to Reporters Without Borders about the violence and impunity that undermines the work of the media and forced her to flee the country.Sri Lanka is classified by Reporters Without Borders as a country “under surveillance” because of its violations of online freedom of expression and is ranked 162nd out of 179 countries in its 2013 press freedom index.
