This home in a high-density residential district in Tokyo’s suburbs was commissioned by a designer at a large real estate company. The roof and exterior walls are constructed from metallic grey Galvalume which both forms a structural skin and protects the privacy of the residents by shielding the first floor from visibility from the street. A large opening in the roof brings in abundant natural light and makes the compact space feel more expansive.    Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe first-floor entrance offers a view between the staircase and the bathroom clear to the back of the property. The “public dining room,” an extension of the entryway, serves not only as the family eating area but also as a guest room for entertaining. An island kitchen by Germany’s SieMatic brand blends form and function, evoking a bistro atmosphere.    Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThrough a glass door and floor-to-ceiling windows, a terrace equipped with an outdoor sofa and other features serves as an exterior living room perfect for parties. Thanks to a courtyard-like layout that ensures privacy and a peaceful mood, it’s hard to believe the street is just on the other side of the wall.  Save this picture!SectionsThe second floor is integrated with a loft and large void, forming a living area that takes advantage of the high ceilings. The interconnectivity of the exposed rafters and eaves opens up the space, while at night, soft indirect lighting envelopes it in a dream-like atmosphere. Overall the house is like an auberge where family and friends can enjoy a meal at the “restaurant” below and then relax upstairs.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Abacus House / studioXSSelected ProjectsHillside Sanctuary / Hoedemaker PfeifferSelected Projects Share 2018 Hirano Construction Masaki Structure, Kenta Masaki ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/909691/cover-apollo-architects-and-associates Clipboard Japan Structural Engineer: “COPY” Cover / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSave this projectSaveCover / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSave this picture!© Masao Nishikawa+ 18Curated by Martita Vial Sharelast_img read more

Correspondent on El Diario de México shot dead for unknown motives

first_img MexicoAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Reports April 28, 2021 Find out more MexicoAmericas Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders said today it was horrified by the murder of Francisco Ortiz Monroy, correspondent for the national daily el Diario de México in Ciudad Camargo, Tamaulipas state in the north-east.The worldwide press freedom organisation said the exact circumstances of the 5 February killing remained unclear and appealed to the authorities to swiftly determine if it was linked to his work and to ensure his murder did not go unpunished.Ortiz Monroy, 48, was gunned down as he was leaving municipal offices in Ciudad Camargo. According to a version reported by the local press, several armed men got out of a car and opened fire on the journalist who ran and took refuge in a nearby house. His assailants then pursued him and shot him dead. Ortiz Monroy’s body was reportedly found on a bed with eight gun shot wounds.In another account, the journalist was killed during a clash between soldiers and armed men – a version considered to be less likely that the first. His identity was only confirmed by his paper late in the evening, around ten hours after the incident, even though he was carrying an ID issued by the paper.Abel Magaña, a deputy editor for El Diario de México, told Reporters Without Borders that the journalist had been covering Tamaulipas state for the Mexico City-based daily for more than one year. “He sent news to us from time to time, that is general official news, which had nothing to do with drug-trafficking”, he said. This is confirmed by the victim’s most recent by-lined articles dated 1st and 2nd January 2008.“There are a number of grey areas surrounding this killing. There is nothing to show that Francisco Ortiz Monroy was targeted because of his work as a journalist. Nevertheless it should be remembered that Tamaulipas is a major channel for drug-trafficking, one of the most dangerous places in the country, where many journalists have been killed”, said Reporters Without Borders. “We hope that the investigation will allow the murderers of Ortiz Monroy to be caught and punished and to conclude whether his work as a journalist was fatal to him.”Tamaulipas state is one of Mexico’s biggest crime hot spots, mired in drug trafficking and illegal immigration to the United States, which it borders. The paper said that the journalist also worked for the customs. El Diario de México has not managed to obtain any further information from the investigators or any response from the murdered journalist’s family and friends.
