Pardis Khane is a private residential project having 5 stories above ground devoted to 10 units of 120 and 130 square meters. The building has 3 floors below ground. There is a watchman room in first basement and also two levels for parking area. The sport facilities like the swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym are located in the third basement.Save this picture!© Deed StudioSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Deed StudioThe facade is a combination of a simple planar surface that completely encloses a volume by making diagonal section cut. The main surface is a lattice made of wood carving which is cut in some points to reveal the stone volume. The wooden surface has special pattern deign inspired by the growth of plant’s leaves, metaphorically the cedar, while the other surface is totally covered by turquoise stone, a local Iranian material with its unique color that has always had significant role in Iranian gardens either used as tiles or the existence of water itself.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe mentioned concept in volume design, the diagonal section cut, is also reflected in interior spaces like walls of corridors or leaving rooms. The terraces covered by turquoise stone have created a link between the outer and inner space, they are all made of glass enabling the residents to have the entire view of green outer space besides the joy of attractive patterns created by sunlight. The resident can simply go on the balcony and touch a tree in marked height. Like the main planting pattern of hanging garden, there have been cedar trees on the facade planted on the 1st, 2nd and 5th floor.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe dynamic wooden lattice is so flexible that can be opened or closed by users to adjust privacy. Moreover, the play of sunlight during sunrise and also sunset creates soothing atmosphere in the home originated from Iranian traditional architecture which makes it not aesthetically but also climatically responsive building. For more artistic skyline, a flat black suspended shading device is designed on the top of roof. There is a small garden in the lobby of the house with small trees and bushes creating special beauty.Save this picture!Facade Opning Diagram 04Moving along the lobby there is a Back yard which is like a sunken courtyard surrounded by floored trees, there is a small pond inside, decorated by turquoise stones. Besides a green area in the patio we can see another green space. The special attention to gardens is also seen on the roof of the building since there is a roof garden awakening the resident’s senses to unique experience.”Save this picture!© Deed StudioIn This place, the passing of time is not noticed, it’s a poetic space for peace of souls” one of the occupants said. In the pool space, despite the shining, gaudy similar places, the swimming pool has a cozy atmosphere with mystic qualities of lighting leading to a peaceful personal privacy…room in which to be. All of the rooms are divided by glass partition for the limitless transparency and making the sense of wholeness in the space. At last, it is important to be mentioned that all these architectural constructions originating from traditional local Iranian architecture have been implemented in a modern style.Save this picture!© Deed StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessBrick Mask House / Spacefiction StudioSelected ProjectsPine Needles Residence / NDDSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tehran, Tehran Province, IranLocation to be used only as a reference.

Quarter of largest non-profits lack mobile-responsive site, says report

first_img Almost half (45%) of UK consumers have made a donation via their mobile phones but many charities do not yet have a mobile-responsive site, according to a report by Episerver.Episerver questioned 20 leading UK charities and 1,200 UK consumers for its Giving on the Go report. The research looks at the mobile strategies of the non-profit sector, examining the extent to which charities are meeting growing demand for mobile-enabled payments and how non-profits could benefit from a giving-on-the-go approach.It found that while three out of five of the UK’s top charities offer an iPhone app, the majority of them are promotional rather than used as a way to accept payments or encourage donations with only 25% capable of managing donations.  The survey also found that few of the charities benchmarked provided Android apps, while a quarter lack a responsive mobile website altogether, with some relying on mobile redirects and others having no mobile-friendly site at all.However, mobile is increasingly important for consumers: according to the report 45% of consumers say they will leave a mobile site immediately if they have difficulty accessing it while mobile payments are rising with 45% of consumers having made a donation via their mobiles in the past year. Around one in five (22%) people donate to a charity in this way at least once a month, while 37% have used their mobiles to make an annual donation.The report also found that women make more donations via a mobile phone or tablet than men, but that men are more likely to do so frequently and on a repeat basis. Age-wise, people aged 25-34 are the most likely to donate via a mobile device, with a quarter (25%) making a mobile donation at least once a week, while 74% of the over 55s have never made a donation this way.Joey Moore, Director of Product Marketing at Episerver, said:“Now more than ever, mobile payment is playing a huge role in both marketing and the day-to-day activities of consumers. Already, many of us have grown accustomed to purchasing food, clothing and travel using mobile payment apps; charitable donations are simply the next step in this evolving trend.“Charities and non-profits have a big opportunity to use mobile technologies for maximum impact. As a generation of mobile-first consumers emerge, those organisations that fail to develop mobile-friendly websites or quick-pay apps will increasingly lose out on potential donations and future long-term patrons.”  137 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: donation processing mobile Research / statistics  138 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Stepmother arrested after 4-year-old girl dies from untreated burns

first_imgNavarro County Justice Center(CORSICANA, Texas) — A Texas woman was arrested this week after she failed to seek medical attention for a young girl who accidentally burned herself with scalding hot water and died, police said.The woman called 911 on Saturday morning about 12 hours after the girl, believed to be 4, had pulled a large pot of boiling water down from the stove at their residence in Corsicana, some 50 miles southeast of downtown Dallas. The child was unresponsive after suffering burns to her face, chest, arms and other parts of her body, according to a press release from the Corsicana Police Department. The woman told officers she wasn’t in the room at the time of the incident and treated the child herself rather than seek medical care. First responders pronounced the child dead at the scene, police said.ABC Dallas affiliate WFAA-TV reported the woman is the girl’s stepmother. Police did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Preliminary results from an autopsy conducted by the Navarro County Medical Examiner’s Office indicated the child died due to injuries sustained from the boiling water, according to police.Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for the woman and took her into custody on Monday afternoon, police said.The woman, identified as 42-year-old Juana Marquez, is being held in Navarro County jail on a $50,000 surety bond, according to jail records. She faces a second-degree felony charge of abandoning or endangering a child, police said.It’s unclear whether Marquez has retained a lawyer. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Ecosystem services of the Southern Ocean: trade-offs in decision-making

first_imgEcosystem services are the benefits that mankind obtains from natural ecosystems. Here we identify the key services provided by the Southern Ocean. These include provisioning of fishery products, nutrient cycling, climate regulation and the maintenance of biodiversity, with associated cultural and aesthetic benefits. Potential catch limits for Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) alone are equivalent to 11% of current global marine fisheries landings. We also examine the extent to which decision-making within the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) considers trade-offs between ecosystem services, using the management of the Antarctic krill fishery as a case study. Management of this fishery considers a three-way trade-off between fisheries performance, the status of the krill stock and that of predator populations. However, there is a paucity of information on how well these components represent other ecosystem services that might be degraded as a result of fishing. There is also a lack of information on how beneficiaries value these ecosystem services. A formal ecosystem assessment would help to address these knowledge gaps. It could also help to harmonize decision-making across the ATS and promote global recognition of Southern Ocean ecosystem services by providing a standard inventory of the relevant ecosystem services and their value to beneficiaries.last_img read more
