The Silvertree residence is a study in how a small, dated, closed in and inwardly focused residence can be revived into an inspiring modern space that interacts with the outdoors.  The wonderful climate of the Sonoran desert, and the opportunity for indoor-outdoor living, was ignored in the previous floor plan of this vaguely Mediterranean 1970s home. A nicely scaled rear terrace with great desert, mountain and partial city views was nearly inaccessible in the floor plan of the existing house. The user had to either go through the existing garage or through the master bedroom to access the rear patio. A new multi-functional space, and a remodeled kitchen and dining room, all revolve around a new three-sided fireplace.

The fireplace is positioned to open to all of the living spaces as well as the exterior patio. These new spaces allow the rest of the existing house to be connected with the exterior. The garage was relocated, creating better access in and out of the garage and allowing the rest of the rear of the house to open to the exterior. The new location buffers the living spaces from the roadway.  The garage is covered with integral color plaster contrasting but complementing the existing painted stucco house and site walls.  Storage is concealed behind birch panels allowing the garage to be minimal and uncluttered. The new garage acts as a showplace for the owners beloved restored 1970 Citroen DS. A pantry was added between living areas and the new garage creating a transitional space and extra storage for the new kitchen. The pantry is clad in birch panels with concealed pullout pantry doors. Save this picture!© Secrest ArchitectureThe new living spaces open the house to the outdoors while maintaining privacy in its suburban setting. Fenestration was positioned to provide controlled views and light while screening neighboring houses.  A clerestory window opens to the east allowing views of the tops of the Catalina Mountains. Mullion less butt-jointed glazing was used on the north facade to strengthen the connectivity with the outdoors and provide unfettered views. A large steel beam spans across the space supporting the roof making the roof appear to float over the mullion-less glass below. Save this picture!© Secrest ArchitectureLarge retractable screens concealed in the ceiling provide privacy and solar control when needed.  The existing patio porch framing was saved and covered with birch panel plywood to unite the interior and exterior. The framing is supported by steel wide-flange beams and concrete columns echoing the interior language.  The new space allows the exterior patio to become an extension of the interior spaces encouraging indoor-outdoor living. Integral color concrete floors below, and birch soffits above, extend to the exterior breaking the conventional opaque boundary, blurring the line between interior and exterior. A large custom sliding door can be opened to strengthen the connectivity with the exterior spaces.  The space now becomes an observatory in which one can experience the ever changing environment of the desert; the daily and annual changes of light; the blooming Palo Verdes in spring; and the spectacular lightning shows during the monsoons.Save this picture!© Secrest ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessWest Kowloon Cultural District Selects City Park / Foster + PartnersArticlesEnergyscapesArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/118208/silvertree-residence-secrest-architecture Clipboard Photographs “COPY”last_img read more

Police confirm they know the men behind journalist’s murder

first_img March 23, 2021 Find out more January 12, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police confirm they know the men behind journalist’s murder United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Organisation Solidarity with Swedish media outlet Realtid ahead of UK defamation case hearing A senior policeman has told a coroner’s inquest in Northern Ireland he believed that eight men interviewed over the murder of the investigative journalist Martin O’Hagan five years ago had been responsible for the killing. The suspects have never been charged for lack of evidence following the drive-by shooting. O’Hagan, 51, was shot dead by loyalist paramilitaries as he walked home from a pub in Lurgan, County Armagh, with his wife in September 2001. The coroner in Armagh, John Leckey, has now paid tribute to the bravery of O’Hagan for his crime reporting for the Sunday World newspaper. He ruled that death was caused by gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, and said he was satisfied with the police theory that the reporter was murdered because he had been investigating a paramilitary gang, the Loyalist Volunteer Force, which was dealing drugs in the Mid-Ulster area. He branded the LVF a sinister organisation and said a number of newsagents in the area had stopped selling the Sunday World after being threatened. Mr Leckey said: “There were widespread threats, not only against journalists like Mr O’Hagan who was seeking to expose these criminals, but also against those who distributed the newspaper which contains his articles.” He noted that Mr O’Hagan was the first journalist to be murdered in such circumstances in Northern Ireland, but that such killings happened around the world. The bravery of such investigative reporters “needs to be recognised”, he added. Police Chief Inspector Charles Patterson told the inquest he was confident that eight men arrested and questioned in the weeks after the murder were behind the killing. They were released for lack of evidence. “These people are associated with the LVF in the Lurgan area. Unfortunately, despite extensive investigations, I don’t have the evidence to proceed against these persons,” said Mr Patterson. He said the murder investigation remained alive, but admitted it was not actively being worked on. He said the case would be internally reviewed by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in the New Year. Kevin Cooper, chairman of Belfast and District Branch of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), said later that the inquest had lasted only a couple of hours, and that local journalists had been hoping for a more meticulous examination of the evidence – given the level of disquiet over the whole affair. He said there had been no reference at the inquest to intelligence reports compiled on the case, or to widespread claims that there had been agents or informers of the security forces among the murder gang and that the police investigation had failed in order to protect them. The police have always vehemently denied this. However, the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland, Nuala O’Loan, is now looking into the stalled investigation following a recent formal complaint from O’Hagan’s siblings. Séamus Dooley, the Irish secretary of the NUJ, repeated the union’s call for an outside police force to take over the murder investigation. He said: “The inquest was a grim reminder of the pain and suffering of the O’Hagan family.” He added: “There needs to be a greater sense of urgency about this investigation. We find the approach of the PSNI unacceptable and, at this stage, the only solution is the involvement of an outside police force.” Receive email alerts News February 11, 2021 Find out more News News Follow the news on United Kingdom Help by sharing this information News United KingdomEurope – Central Asia February 12, 2021 Find out more RSF_en RSF condemns BBC broadcast ban as example of Chinese government reprisal A Northern Ireland coroner has ruled that Martin O’Hagan’s assassination was linked to the reporter’s investigation of a loyalist paramilitary gang, and hears an admission by officers that they have been unable to prosecute those they believe are responsible.
