Interest rates will slowly rise starting from the second quarter of this year, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) predicted yesterday.The CBI expect rates to average 0.88 per cent this year, before reaching 2.06 per cent in 2012.Meanwhile, two former Bank of England rate setters — Deanne Julius and Tim Besley — said the MPC should send a message through their voting balance that they are willing and ready to tackle inflation.February’s inflation rate “could be the shocker” that convinces the Bank to move rates, Julius told the Fathom monetary policy forum yesterday. last_img read more

In 2002 we won an urban architectural competition for one of the rare not built plots in the historical center of Osijek. Urban part has to give a solution that will connect the main city square and the promenade along Drava River. The building has to put together: public garage, shopping center, offices and the housing on one side and to fit into the existing urban tissue on the other side.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanicThe U shape building is enclosing internal shopping gallery with movable pneumatic roof. Save this picture!© Damir FabijanicOn the ground floor level the gallery is treated as an integral part of the pedestrian flows that are connecting the main square and the promenade along Drava River. The façade treatment follows the functional building organization: Save this picture!© Damir FabijanicThe public space of the ground floor is focused to the surrounding streets – transparent windows; Shopping on the 1st floor and the offices on the 2nd floor are orientated to the internal gallery – textile translucent façade; the oak wood façade of the hosing part; and Bellevue with the bar – transparent glass. Save this picture!© Damir FabijanicActually, the house has totally glazed façade that is covered with the translucent material on the 1st and 2nd floor. With the textile translucency the building has two different appearances: day – when you can see a unified building body, and night – when the content of the interior is coming to the façade. Save this picture!© Damir FabijanicThe idea behind the oak wood housing façade was a clear division between the housing and the public part of the building. Save this picture!© Damir FabijanicSince that façade of the building is shaping the public space of the street the sculptural treatment of the façade is emphasizing the flow direction of the streets – from the main square to the promenade. Save this picture!ElevationImplementation of this idea was an experiment for us as the architects, and there is relatively few investors that have intent to experiment on their commercial projects.

Bellbird Retreat is a weekend escape to a stunning rural setting.  The modest dwelling sits in a pristine bushland reserve and encourages a dialogue between man-made and natural environments. Connection to place is embraced through building form and materials, climatic sensitivity, and the framing of views.  As a place of contemplation and rejuvenation, Bellbird Retreat excels.  Tempering the remote rural land upon which it sits, it affords its occupants comfort and safe haven.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesSustainability in a climatically extreme environment was embraced, from rainwater and electricity harvesting to passive design measures utilising the building’s mass and orientation to create year-round thermal comfort. With a site susceptible to devastating bushfires, the inspired fire-resistant roof design eliminated combustible timber rafters by utilising the structural capacity of steel pleats to create a single span structure with unsupported cantilevered eaves.  Eave depth allows the winter sun to penetrate, reserving heat in the mass of the concrete slab to make nights warm and enjoyable.  In summer, the sun is precluded allowing breezes to transfer the cool of the slab’s mass.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesOn approach, Bellbird Retreat appears fortress-like with the pleated steel roof crowning three pivoting brick blades that tie the dwelling inextricably to the site while sheltering the building from wind, sun, and fire. The building sits boldly, carved into the landscape.  It is positioned to maximise the mountain saddle for recreational use, enticing the occupant through sliding corner doors that peel back. The concrete floor slab cantilevers to provide an impromptu seat and discourages wildlife accessing interior spaces. The twisted roof form responds to topographical features rising over the modest living space to frame the mountain top.  Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesDissolving the distinction between interior and exterior, monolithic brick blade walls are carried inside, and triangular roof pleats penetrate the northern glass facade, and their patina resonates with the bark of surrounding gum trees.  Past a welcoming bench and covered entry, the modest open-plan interior dramatically expands to a breathtaking layered view beyond.  The interior employs the rich golden hues of locally grown indigenous hoop pine utilised for joinery, doors, walls, and ceilings.  Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesSave this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesBedroom windows are orientated towards ‘morning’ views, with living spaces capturing ‘evening’ views as the last rays illuminate the stunning Condamine Gorge escarpment.  The bathroom sits between the bedrooms via a corridor of louvres protected from fire embers by an exterior stainless steel mesh.  Corridor doors are rebated into the wall and can be readily configured to allow the occupants from both rooms to use the bathroom with privacy maintained, or to have a dedicated ensuite to the main bedroom.  The interior is simple, restrained and sparse and is a counterpoint to the omnipresent beauty of the natural landscape. Rural sensibilities and restrained tectonics balance the building’s composition, creating open yet protected spaces.  Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig HodgesProject gallerySee allShow lessWestern Academy of Haining International Campus of Zhejiang University / UADSelected ProjectsRestoration and Extension of Xianghui Hall, Fudan University / TJAD Original Design …Selected Projects Share Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig Hodges+ 29Curated by Paula Pintos Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/923269/bellbird-retreat-house-steendijk Clipboard Lead Architect: Photographs:  Christopher Frederick Jones, Brian Steendyk, Craig Hodges Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2018 Australialast_img read more

The SD Residence occupies a compact plot, located in a rationally urbanized late 70s neighborhood in the outskirts of Tetovo, North Macedonia with a panoramic view towards the Sharr Mountains. Save this picture!© Vase PetrovskiThe client commissioned a house to provide accommodation for a multi-generational family. Besides typical spaces for the family, the house should accommodate other amenities; a pool, wellness, and playrooms for the kids. The most prominent space in the house should be the social area. Connected with the unified dining and living rooms, the kitchen should be spacious and communicate into a semi-covered space belonging to an outdoor area that allows the living room and dining area to expand into the exterior. Regarding the private areas, seven bedrooms were commissioned: three en suite master bedrooms and four children bedrooms separated from the former, all of them with their own bathrooms. It was decided that the program would be stacked on multiple levels due to the restrains of the site. Save this picture!© Vase PetrovskiThe design of the building is driven by the content and its urban context. White volumes with various programs are stacked to form a structure incorporating several voids that become terraces or spaces into which windows and planters are slotted.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanAt the heart of the home, wooden sculptural stairs set on top of each other define an axis for vertical circulations around which all spaces are organized. While on the ground floor they release the living room from the private master bedroom, upstairs they separate the master and secondary bedrooms and the common area on the top floor, according to what the client asked for.Save this picture!© Vase PetrovskiThe entrance is not only a space for taking off the shoes; we aimed to create a semi-covered space for various events that extends to the garden. Some of the rooms open onto terraces that seamlessly extend the living areas onto the building’s exterior. Others incorporate large windows that enable daylight to penetrate the spaces while achieving an insular sense of privacy. The lowest level – basement, contains a leisure and wellness area along with the technical room; the ground floor mainly accommodates the public domain of the house, and the upper levels (the first and second floor) private bedrooms. Save this picture!SectionThe interiors are made of white wall surfaces and dark solid wood floors. The layout of the spaces leaves enough room for free circulation between the furniture and allows for an individualized reading of each piece. Boards and furniture are made of wood and solid surfaces to add warmth to the white backdrop. The kitchen at the rear of the living room features a stone-like counter.Save this picture!© Vase PetrovskiSave this picture!© Vase PetrovskiThe facades are clad in a puzzle of whiteboards of hanging panels, interrupted by recessed windows of varying dimensions set at different heights to frame views of the surrounding mountains. The wood-like surfaces surrounding the windows introduce a warm contrast and interrupt the uniform and homogenous facade. Beneath the “wrapping” of the house, a thermal insulation component system ensures the energy efficiency of the building. Save this picture!© Vase PetrovskiThe façade panels and materials in use meet the latest technical requirements in the fields of energy efficiency, noise, and fire protection. Altogether, the SD Residence provides an environment that is simultaneously a lush celebration of the client’s many accomplishments, and warm and casual space for both physical and mental relaxation with family and friends.Save this picture!© Vase PetrovskiProject gallerySee allShow lessRene Cassin School Canteen / Brulé Architectes AssociésSelected ProjectsThe Fascinating History and Hidden Ugliness of Curb AppealArticles Share Houses “COPY” SD Residence / BMA – Besian Mehmeti Architects ArchDaily Macedonia Photographs:  Vase Petrovski Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBMA – Besian Mehmeti ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsDecoration & OrnamentMies van der Rohe AwardTetovoOn FacebookMacedoniaPublished on February 19, 2021Cite: “SD Residence / BMA – Besian Mehmeti Architects” 19 Feb 2021.

After Brexit, will Britain become U.S. puppet?

first_imgAt the stroke of 11 p.m. on Jan. 31, Britain was no longer part of the European Union and free to make any kind of trade deal its government could reach “without let or hindrance” from the EU.But this “freedom” means that U.S. imperialism is free to put intense pressure on a stand-alone country whose major trading partner is the EU — just across the Channel.  Forty-five percent of all Britain’s exports in 2019 were to the EU and 53 percent of all its imports from the EU. Only 13 percent of its exports were to the U.S.London has conflicts with Washington over taxes, trade and technology. If the British government imposes  a digital-services tax that hits U.S.-based tech giants, the Trump administration threatens to retaliate with a 100 percent tariff on British car exports.The U.S. and the EU have conflicting health and safety standards. The EU forbids the sale or import of frozen chlorinated chicken. In the U.S., it is a common way of treating frozen chicken.The U.S. trade model is a lot looser than the EU’s, but Britain is going to have trouble straddling between them.  If British corporations adhere to U.S. rules on food safety, they could run into the EU’s nontariff barriers. If Britain adopts U.S. rules on social protections for workers, which are far less protective than EU rules, Britain can have problems trading with the EU.The contradictions could create a problem for cross-border trade between the Republic of Ireland, which is part of the EU, and the six counties of northeast Ireland, which for now is part of Britain.British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is scheduled to say on Feb. 3: “There is no need for a free trade agreement to involve accepting EU rules on competition policy, subsidies, social protection, the environment, or anything similar any more than the EU should be obliged to accept UK rules.” (Guardian, Feb. 2)U.S.-British conflict over HuaweiThe market for 5G network gear, software and the hardware necessary to use the new standard is estimated to be around $700 billion for the decade 2019-29. The Chinese firm Huawei is a world leader in 5G technology, providing reliable gear at relatively low prices. Huawei is the world’s second-largest cell phone provider and has a major share of Britain’s market.The technological issue between the U.S. and Britain centers on Johnson’s decision to use some kits from Huawei for the 5G network that is being built in England.  This decision was announced two days before Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went to Britain to discuss the changes in U.S.-UK relations that Brexit will produce. Pompeo aims to deny China and Huawei the ability to shape the future of the internet.5G is a new network standard that is faster, more reliable and more capable than the current 4G network.  If England excludes Huawei from its 5G network build, its people will have to bear the heavy costs of ripping Huawei gear out of its 4G network.5G will accelerate the growth and expansion of telecommunications. It will also redefine industries such as automotive, entertainment, computing and manufacturing.  Like any advanced economy, Britain’s will have to adopt it.Washington claims that British use of Huawei equipment would create a grave security risk, opening up networks to monitoring by Chinese intelligence. Huawei denies this claim and points to its use of open source code.The French government has stated that it will use Huawei equipment. Huawei has 25 percent of the telecommunications market in France. German network operators say that banning Huawei may add years of delays and billions in costs to Germany’s 5G network launch.Responding to U.S. pressure on the security issue, a number of Conservative members of the British Parliament have challenged Johnson’s decision on Huawei’s gear.
