An infill single-family dwelling, the project is a new addition to the Bedford Park-Nortown neighborhood in uptown Toronto. The design objective is to create a new house with maximized liveable space and natural light within the tight and narrow site for an emerging developer. Responding to the Victorian style fabric, the building is designed contextual sensitive yet distinct and bold. The conclusion is a contemporary architectural statement sitting peacefully beside the conventional counterparts.Save this picture!Massing DiagramSave this picture!Floor PlansMimicking neighbors’ sloped roof gesture, front and rear mass alignments with adjacent neighbors as well as exterior cladding selection are key strategies for the exterior design. Thanks to the laneway, rear detached garage replaces front integrated garage offering enhanced streetscape at the front as well as the opportunity for a vegetated roof and additional green space at the back. Front yard landscape engages the building in the context and promotes the neighborhood public realm.Save this picture!© Sam Javanrouh, Mehdi MarzyariThe building contains three stories and a basement. Redefining open concept, central powder room and servery separate more formal south wing from the everyday north wing on the first floor while fluid and spatial flowing interior is maintained. Large-scaled glazed walls provide connectivity to the site while level deck aligns inside with outside at the back.Save this picture!© Sam Javanrouh, Mehdi MarzyariArticulated light-filled stairway along with double height celebration connects common spaces on a lower level to bedrooms on upper levels through natural light. The third floor is setback creating small balcony at the front as well as a larger terrace with a vegetated roof at the back. Oversized pocket doors provide formal separation in addition to flexibility in the use of third-floor space. Light shafts bring more natural light to lower levels via roof skylights.Save this picture!© Sam Javanrouh, Mehdi MarzyariThe project involves sustainability principals to reduce environmental impact and achieve well- being of its users: Green roof and substantial front and rear soft landscaping along with permeable hardscape reduce stormwater volume and heat island effect. Major north and south face glazing maximize natural daylighting as well as passive solar gain. To promote the comfort of residents, each room features exterior view without compromising privacy.Save this picture!© Sam Javanrouh, Mehdi MarzyariThe open concept and location of operable windows provide natural cross ventilation in most of the spaces during summertime. High efficient furnace and heat pump with heat recovery ventilation in addition to in-floor heating system for the basement is considered to reduce fossil fuel consumption. Replacing conventional insulation, polyurethanes foam-in-place and high efficient glazing accommodate a better-insulated interior and reduce the mechanical load.Save this picture!© Sam Javanrouh, Mehdi MarzyariProject gallerySee allShow lessCascading Courts / HYLA ArchitectsSelected ProjectsShigeru Ban Creates Temporary Shelter System for Japanese Flooding VictimsArchitecture News Share Bedford Park House / Mehdi Marzyari Architects ArchDaily Photographs: Sam Javanrouh, Mehdi Marzyari Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Structural Engineer: CopyHouses•Toronto, Canada 2017 Photographs CopyAbout this officeMehdi Marzyari ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoCanadaPublished on July 16, 2018Cite: “Bedford Park House / Mehdi Marzyari Architects” 16 Jul 2018.

The forum has been closed.Badawi was accused of contravening article 6 of a cyber-crime law that says “participating in the production, preparation, circulation or storage of content that undermines public order, religious values, public decency or privacy, by means of information networks or computers (…) is punishable by a prison sentence, fine or other penalty.”In July 2013, a lower court sentenced him to seven years in prison and 600 lashes on charges of violating Islamic values and spreading liberal ideas. The prosecutor had requested a harsher sentence for “apostasy,” a charge that carries a possible death sentence. Liberal Saudi Network president Swad Shammari told Agence France-Presse that Badawi was accused of “criticizing the religious police” and “certain activities and fatwas by ulemas,” especially clerics who are members of the Committee for the Rule of Virtue and Repression of Vice, a government body that oversees the religious police. She added that it was clerics, not the government, who brought the complaint against Badawi.Describing his sentence as a blow to freedom of expression and online freedom of information, the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information said it was yet another example of how the Saudi regime uses charges involving Islam in order to eliminate its political opponents.Waleed Abu Al-Khair, a human rights lawyer who had defended Badawi, was himself arrested on 15 April. He is being held at Riyadh’s Al-Ha’ir prison pending trial on 28 May.Two bloggers based in the eastern governorate of Al-Qatif received jail sentences under articles 6 and 13 of the cyber-crime law on 6 May in connection with the websites they created.Sheikh Jalal Mohamed Al-Jamal, who was arrested on 25 February 2012 and released on 5 May 2013, was sentenced on appeal to five years in prison and a fine of 50,000 riyals (10,000 euros). The authorities claimed that his website, Awamia.net, “attacked the Saudi state.”Ali Jaseb Al-Touhifah, who has been held since 1 August 2012, was sentenced to six years in prison and a fine of 50,000 riyals.

Several cybercafés have sprung up in the capital, Tashkent, but the US organisation Internews says customers have to promise in writing not to send “political or religious” e-mails. So self-censorship is routine in a country where no independent media are allowed.There are several ISPs, two of them privately-owned. The authorities ended the monopoly of the state-owned ISP, Uzpak, in October 2002.OpenNet Initiative (ONI), which catalogues censored sites, says the authorities systematically block access to opposition sites such as the Birlik party and the banned Islamic party Hizb ut-Tahrir. News sites that carry critical articles about President Islam Karimov are sometimes censored.In February 2003, a freedom of information law, which restricts news put out by all media, including the Internet, came into force. Its article 4 says freedom to inform the public can be restricted to “protect the moral values of society, national security and the country’s spiritual, cultural and scientific potential.” This vague definition leaves plenty of room for interpretation and thus censorship. The same is true of other articles, which give pretexts such as “preserving cultural and historical values,” “preventing psychological influence over and manipulation of public awareness” and preserving “social stability.” New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council News Receive email alerts October 15, 2020 Find out more

#HoldTheLine Coalition calls for new cyber libel charge to be dropped and pressure ceased against Maria Ressa RSF_en News News February 2, 2021 – Updated on April 20, 2021 #HoldTheLine coalition sounds alarm over escalating legal harassment of Maria Ressa PhilippinesAsia – Pacific WomenFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment This week alone, Maria Ressa is required to appear in court in the Philippines on three separate dates. On 3 February, she will appear in connection with four tax charges. On 4 February, she must return, alongside Rappler reporter Rambo Talabong, for an arraignment hearing in the newest of the three cyber-libel cases open against her. On 5 February, she must appear remotely for a pre-trial hearing in a separate cyber-libel case.“The #HoldTheLine Coalition condemns the growing legal harassment of Maria Ressa, which is clearly intended to silence public interest reporting and commentary aimed at holding the Philippine government to account. This cluster of hearings highlights the absurdity of the cases against her, which constitute legal abuse of a courageous independent journalist and the news outlet she founded. We stand with Maria Ressa and Rappler, and call for the charges against them to be dropped and this unrelenting pressure brought to an end once and for all”, said the steering committee.These are only the latest examples of escalating legal pressure on Ressa, who has been subjected to 10 arrest warrants over the past two years. She faces a possible six-year prison sentence if her cyber-libel conviction from July 2020 is not overturned, and two further cyber-libel charges have since been brought against her. Ressa could be looking at a lifetime in prison if convicted on all charges against her.The #HoldTheLine coalition of more than 80 groups led by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), and Reporters Without Borders (RSF), stands with Ressa to #HoldTheLine and defend independent journalism in the Philippines. Sign and share the #HoldTheLine petition calling on the Philippine government to drop all charges against Ressa and Rappler.Note: This statement is issued by the #HoldTheLine steering committee but it does not necessarily reflect the position of all or any individual Coalition members or organisations.
