Rehabilitation of Duplex Apartment Bugio / AIA

first_imgProducts used in this ProjectBathroomsGeberitSanitary Installation SystemsSave this picture!© Carolina DelgadoText description provided by the architects. The Bugio project consists of transforming the entire interior of a duplex apartment located on the top floors of a building that preceded the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755. As the apartment was small and the client wanted to maximize the number of bedrooms, one of the strategies was to reduce circulation spaces to the minimum possible, changing the entire interior organization in order to make the relationship between spaces more effective, but always preserving the characteristics of the original apartment.Save this picture!© Carolina DelgadoSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Carolina DelgadoDownstairs the existing kitchen was replaced by the bedroom, with the new kitchen occupying the central space of the house. The space in the living room was enlarged both horizontally and vertically, unifying all the original details of the wooden elements (friezes, doors, shutters, door trimmings, footers …). With the discovery of the crosses of Santo André (wooden structure) forming a panel across the width at the top of the living room, almost like a large work of art, a game of sloping ceilings running through the apartment began, starting from the living room, going up the stairs to the top floor and then going through all of the divisions.Save this picture!© Carolina DelgadoOn the top floor, all spaces are organized around a central closet/shower, creating a rotating movement that only leaves the outside patio behind. Throughout the apartment, we always tried to take advantage of all the corners and all the existing niches, to create storage spaces, some with more and others with less direct connection to the main spaces.Save this picture!© Carolina DelgadoSave this picture!© Carolina DelgadoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Carolina DelgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessKrinkels BV Headquarters / Paul de Ruiter ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHealth Center Jugon Les Lacs / Violi ArchitecteSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Sé, 1100 Lisbon, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

He was 55.Representatives from the Beverly Hills-based talent agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment LLC (WME) said Toms died on Christmas Day.Toms was most recently working on Bravo’s “Timber Creek Lodge” before he died.Tom’s extensive list of reality TV shows include “Celebrity Wife Swap,” “Secret Millionaire,” “Wife Swap,” “The Judds,” “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” “Nanny 911,” “Paradise Hotel” and “Workout.”He was nominated for the Emmy’s in 2001 for his work on MTV’s long-running “Road Rules.”“Bruce produced lots of series for Bunim-Murray Productions including MTV’s ‘Road Rules’ and Fox’s ‘Love Cruise,’” fellow producer Jonathan Murray said in a statement. “His talent was enormous. But what made him truly special, was his kind and loving soul.”A native of Grand Rapids, Minn., Toms attended the University of Minnesota Duluth before moving to New York to pursue a career as an actor. He starred in the national touring company production of Harvey Fierstein’s “Torch Song Trilogy.”In 1985, Toms joined the entertainment industry non-profit Young Artists United (YAU), where he honed his social and political activism that would shape his creative vision and guide the rest of his career.“From the moment Bruce arrived in our lives, he infused YAU board meetings with wisdom, passion and integrity,” said YAU co-founder Daniel Sladek. “We were all in our early twenties and just beginning our careers, and his ability to transform ideas into action was matched by his electrifying charm. He definitely enhanced the lives of those who knew him.”In 1987, Toms joined fellow YAU board member Douglas Ross’ reality production company Evolution Media, and produced the antinuke documentary “Change the World,” shot in the Soviet Union.“Bruce Toms was a visionary whose creativity was only matched by his compassion and activism to make the world a better place,” said Ross.Toms exited Evolution in 1996 to become an independent director and producer. He guided numerous productions for Fox, MTV, Bravo and OWN, among others.WME representative Mark Itkin said Toms was his friend and client for close to 20 years.“He was a lovely, kind and loyal gentleman with a great sense of humor,” Itkin said of the artist. “As a producer he was an excellent storyteller and respected leader. He left us way too soon.”Toms is survived by his mother Carol; siblings Blake and Lisa, Brian and Cindy, and Julie and Mark; nieces Katie Schmidt and Jenna Toms.A memorial service was planned for December 31 at Bethel-Trinity Lutheran Church in Bovey, Minn. WME said a life celebration will be held in the Los Angeles area at a later date.In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, Star of the North Humane Society, and Alliance for Housing and Healing.

Kids invited to come ‘play’ on Saturday

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Latest Stories Kids invited to come ‘play’ on Saturday The Worldwide Day of Play event officially began all Nickelodeon channels on Oct. 2, 2004. Nickelodeon suspended programming for three hours. During that time, there was no programming and a special message appeared on the screen.The message that appeared on Sept. 29, 2007 included “Get off the couch, get up from the floor and definitely quit slouching in your bed.

Juvenile center waited 35 minutes to call police when murder suspects escaped: Police

first_imgMetro Nashville Police Department(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Nashville, Tennessee police are investigating a privately operated juvenile detention center where four teens, including two accused of murder, were able to escape through the front door, police said Monday.Youth Opportunity Investments, the private detention contractor that manages the Davidson County Juvenile Detention Center, waited more than a half hour before it told police that the teens escaped, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department, which is investigating the circumstances surrounding Saturday night’s escape.“In 30 minutes, with a fast walk, you could be 2 miles away,” Metro Nashville Police Department Chief Steve Anderson told reporters Monday. “I don’t have any indication that a crime has been committed, that there was some overt act to assist in their escape, but certainly a lot of gross negligence.”Murder suspects Decorrius Wright, 16, and Morris Marsh, 17, allegedly ran out of the Davidson County Juvenile Detention Center at around 10 p.m. Saturday night along with two other inmates, identified as 17-year-old Brandon Caruthers and 15-year-old Calvin Howse, authorities said Sunday.The teens were on a work detail when their staff supervisor left them to address a fight at another location inside the facility, according to police. They managed to get onto an elevator and used staff protocols to ride to the unsecured ground floor where they went through a series of doors and exited to the outside.Authorities said an employee of the detention center drove around the area looking for the escapees for 35 minutes before he eventually called police for assistance.The teens had not been apprehended as of late Monday night. Investigators said they more than likely had assistance once they were outside.Youth Opportunity said it was conducting an internal investigation into how the teens managed to escape. It said four employees had been placed on suspension pending the results of the internal probe, according to Nashville ABC affiliate WKRN-TV.“Youth Opportunity has provided a safe and secure environment for the youth and the citizens of Nashville. Youth Opportunity has heretofore experienced very few safety and security breaches,” the company said in a statement. “Youth Opportunity acknowledges that several members of its security personnel made improper decisions that, when combined, led to an opportunity for the four youth to leave the facility.”Anderson said he “had more questions than I had answers” after reviewing a copy of Youth Opportunity’s internal report, which is why he requested an investigation.“In looking at their own internal report, I just saw a pattern of people not paying attention to what they should be doing, so that’s the reason that I called for the review,” Anderson said.“What I saw in their report appeared to be a pattern of maybe nonchalant behavior,” Anderson said.Authorities said the teens are considered dangerous and are asking for the public’s help in locating them.Wright is accused of the murder of 24-year-old Kyle Yorlets, a Nashville musician who was fatally shot in an alley behind his home in February, according to police. Marsh is suspected of killing 19-year-old Charles Easley in April.Caruthers had been transferred to adult court on an August 2018 armed robbery case in south Nashville, according to police. Howse was last arrested Nov. 21 on charges of auto theft and gun possession, police said.ABC News does not normally name juveniles, but are doing so because police said they are dangerous individuals and have released their names and photos. Anyone with information about the escapees is asked to immediately call Nashville’s Emergency Communications Center at 615-862-8600.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Man kicks down door, shoots ex-girlfriend dead as she lay with daughter

first_imgABC News/KTRK-TVBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(HOUSTON) — A man has surrendered to police after allegedly kicking down the door to his ex-girlfriend’s house in the early hours of the morning and shooting her to death while she lay with her 4-year-old daughter.The incident occurred at approximately 4:20 a.m. on July 17 when the suspect, 24-year-old Cedgadrick Adarius Harris, reportedly kicked the door down to the apartment where his former girlfriend, 28-year-old Kimberley Robinson, lived.“I heard three shots — there was a pop, pop, pop — and I thought maybe somebody was shooting a firecracker. Then I heard it again,” a witness who wished to remain unidentified told ABC News’ Houston station KTRK-TV in an interview.According to investigators, Harris made his way to the second floor of the home and proceeded to knock down another locked door where he found Robinson and her 4-year-old daughter.Police told KTRK that six shots were fired, killing Robinson and injuring the little girl who was reportedly hit with shrapnel at least twice. KTRK says she was reported to be conscious and breathing at a local area hospital.Four other children were downstairs at the time of the shooting, including a 10-year-old who called relatives for help after it happened, Houston Police Lt. Christopher Bruce told KTRK.None of the other children were hurt and they have all since been placed in the care of relatives.“I was just praying she was okay,” said the unidentified neighbor, who said he recognized the person who committed the crime and knows the family. “You know, hopefully nothing bad happened to her or the kids, but I knew somebody got hurt.”Houston Police Sgt. Michael Casso said that the victim had reported at least one domestic violence incident to police about a month ago while neighbors say there has been a history of domestic violence at the apartment.“This is my second domestic violence related homicide in the last couple weeks,” Sgt. Casso said. “Naturally, when you get people together in quarantine for a long period of time, sometimes tempers flare. I don’t know. He’s been out of this apartment for possibly months, so I can’t say.”The 4-year-old who was injured in the shooting is expected to be okay.According to the Houston Police Department’s website, Harris was booked into custody on July 20 and charged with capital murder and assault on a family member. A trial date has yet to be set in this case.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
