In March 2014, when its rehabilitation works were almost finished, this building burned down. It was a fine bourgeois apartment building from the beginning of the 20th century, with some large flats over 330sqm and 4m high ceilings.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGThe original interior was a wooden structure with the typical interior decoration program of that period in Lisbon: pine wood floors, painted stucco walls, molded stucco ceilings, tiled walls in the stairs and high quality wood and art nouveau stained glass windows.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGThe fire destroyed almost everything but the façades and the ground floor, which was already reinforced with a thick concrete slab preventing eventual fire to pass from the parking to the other floors. The stone pavement of the main entrance, where a double symmetrical stair existed, also survived the fire. The steel structure of the terraces (not yet assembled on site) and the old wooden doors and shutters were preserved as they were stored outside the building.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGBecause structural reinforcement on the ground floor was already done under the position of the ancient walls, it turned out to be a “footprint” which had to be used in the upper new partition walls.  In that way, the new plan incorporates the old plan.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGAs in the original building, the project laid out an apartment per floor, using the groundfloor for car parking. The floor plans are similar, except for the upper floor which is the occupation of the attic and therefore has different exterior windows and gets a more “lofty” feel to it. The 1st and 2nd floors each enjoy a private garden on the rear façade while the others enjoy a terrace.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGThe new project had to be very pragmatic, using the most common and inexpensive materials available in the market, and reusing everything possible. It was also decided that all surviving elements should be maintained because of their cultural value but also because of their inherent value.Save this picture!SectionThe old doors preserved from the fire were reused as cladding for the entrance walls of the building and the old stone pavement was maintained as memorial of the pre-existing interior.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGConcrete structure, the most affordable structural system availabre, was the solution chosen and it was decided that it should be assumed on the main entrance, stairs, apartments’ social areas and rear façade terraces.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGThe stairs were designed with a peripheral hammered concrete wall which contrasts with the soft, comfortable texture of the wooden steps and guard.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGInside the apartments the living and dining rooms have their ceilings in cast concrete with a diagonal wooden clapboards texture mirroring the floor design.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGIn a simpler design, clapboards are also imprinted in terrace and entrance hall ceilings.The walls at the center core of the apartments, are surfaced with wood panels colored with white velaturas that preserve its texture. Full height sliding doors articulate the working, living, cooking and dining rooms.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGFor the large terraces, diamond shaped cement tiles were designed reinventing the old floors of the building. On bathrooms and kitchens, the Lisbon current “beige” stone “Lioz” was used.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGThe huge art nouveau windows on the main façade were redesigned with a very slender steel frame.The main goal of the project was to preserve the bourgeois and luxurious character of the former apartment building while updating it in a contemporary way through the sensible and sober use of scale, design and materiality.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGProject gallerySee allShow lessNorman Foster Foundation’s Madrid Headquarters to Inaugurate with Global Forum in JuneArchitecture NewsBolshevik Factory-Museum of Russian Impressionism / John McAslan + PartnersSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:R.

Support to Florida journalists facing Governor’s selective handling of media

first_imgNews NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Michael C. Bender, politics reporter for the St. Petersburg Times, told Reporters Without Borders: “There was plenty of access to the governor during the campaign. He did a state wide bus tour and invited reporters to tag along the whole time.” In her article, Lucy Morgan, St. Petersburg Times Senior Correspondent, said: “He refused to meet with editorial boards, but allowed reporters on his campaign bus.” (…) However, during the campaign, the Orlando Sentinel was considered as “hostile.” ( is the first time journalists in Florida have faced such harsh restrictions. Reporters Without Borders spoke with Jim Baltzelle, President of the Florida Society of New Editors (FSNE) (, who shared: “Usually there is rotation or the press decides who is involved with a pool situation, not the governor, so for us, this is a First Amendment issue.” Baltzelle continued: “Though it can be understandable when there is only one seat available on an airplane, and similar circumstances, pools in general are a bad idea.” Therefore, the FSNE has decided to write a formal letter to Gov. Scott expressing their concerns and offering their assistance and hoping for a broader understanding. David Royse, Executive Editor of the News Service of Florida, told Reporters Without Borders: “In the Bush and Crist administrations, sure, there were some minor skirmishes with access, but nothing this contentious.” Royse continued by saying: “(The Governor) said he was trying to increase access by creating pooled events, where otherwise he wouldn’t be required to let reporters in. This makes it difficult to argue that he was cutting off access.”Barbara A. Petersen, President of the First Amendment Foundation (FAF), spoke to Reporters Without Borders about access to records and meetings: “There are signs that Gov. Scott’s and his staff are trying to control which information gets out.” Petersen continued: “With Gov. Scott’s administration, there are fewer people authorized to address the media, so if the media is not getting the information they request from the governor’s office, then they have to make a public records request.” Hopeful for the future, Petersen said: “Under public records law, there is a steep learning curve Gov. Scott’s administration has to endure. Everyone has been very patient and are waiting to see.”Since Gov. Scott entered office, 92 media requests have been made. As of February 8th, 2011, 88% of those have been completed – 72 fully completed and 11 partially completed. An additional 38 request from non-media organization have been made, and 33 of them have been completed. Considering Gov. Scott is new to office, this large volume of requests is reasonable and seem to be dealt with in a relatively timely manner. Organisation Follow the news on United States June 3, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Mary Ellen Klas, Tallahassee Bureau Chief of the Miami Herald, told Reporters Without Borders: “We would like to work this all out. We just want to tell the story.” Since it is still early in Gov. Scott’s administration, Baltzelle and his colleagues have reason to believe that: “Maybe his administration’s treatment of reporters will be perceived as a misstep and maybe things will improve – this is what we are hoping.” Various journalists in Florida agree with these ideas. After all, Gov. Scott has reaffirmed support from the Office for Open Government. RSF_en to go further News Reporters Without Borders asks Florida’s new Governor, Rick Scott, to explain his handling of the media since he has been brought into office on January 4th, 2011. Reporters Without Borders is worried that his media policy has been skirting with press freedoms.For example, during his post-inauguration ceremony, on the 22nd Floor of The Capitol, Gov. Scott carefully “cherry-picked” which journalists he wanted in, and which he wanted out – a pooling process in which Reporters Without Borders looks down upon with disappointment, as it clearly disobeys press freedoms. Commenting on the pooled post-inaugural ceremony, Marc Caputo, political writer for the Miami Herald, told Reporters Without Borders: “It was a good example of needlessly closing an event or needlessly insisting an event should be pooled when it shouldn’t be.”center_img June 7, 2021 Find out more News February 9, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Support to Florida journalists facing Governor’s selective handling of media News Help by sharing this information United StatesAmericas United StatesAmericas WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
