Elm Street is dominated by very mature evergreen trees and high garden hedges, so much so that the residential architecture on the street becomes secondary in prominence.  The west side of the street also contains unusually deep lots, just under 350 feet in length, with no lane access at the rear. As such, the properties offer design opportunities & challenges not available on more typical residential lots in the city.Save this picture!© Ema PeterThis particular property is one of these deep lots with clusters of tall evergreen trees, both within the site and on the neighbouring properties, some close to 100 ft. in height.  The site depth and the mature trees are the main influences on the design of the house. The 343 ft. long lot allows the house to be stretched apart into living space pavilions that open up to and integrate with the natural setting, while breaking down the building mass. The simple lines and natural materials are intended to create a quiet backdrop to the overwhelmingly established natural setting of the site and neighbouring lots.  Save this picture!© Ema PeterSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Ema PeterThe house’s massing consists of single and double storey components straddling a central glass-enclosed circulation spine. The components are separated by garden courtyards and anchored to the site by three feature chimney walls. The house is set low on the property with the main floor level only a foot above the existing entrance grade.  This eases the connection between interior and exterior spaces.  Exterior terrace platforms become an extension of the living spaces into the surrounding garden. The pool is sited as a water court to the family room and main bedroom above.Save this picture!© Ema PeterSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Ema PeterUtilizing a subtle palette of natural materials, the finishes are a combination of horizontal wood cladding, glass and architectural concrete.  The architectural concrete finish on the three feature ‘chimney’ walls is expressed both inside and outside to further emphasize the connection to the exterior.Save this picture!© Ema PeterThe overall site landscape treatment is intentionally subtle, allowing the existing tall trees to remain dominant and frame the outdoor spaces.  Save this picture!© Ema PeterProject gallerySee allShow lessPhotography Exhibition: Christian Fessel “Everything’s in order”Exhibition OpeningHala Wardé and HW Architecture Win Competition to Design BeMA: Beirut Museum of ArtArchitecture News Share Manufacturers: Kawneer, Keith Panel Systems, Poliform Landscape Designer: Area:  7100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Ema Peter+ 25 Share Jones Kwong Kishi Structural Engineers CopyAbout this officeJames K.M.

Japfa gears business strategy toward overcoming impacts of pandemic

first_img“[The approval] gives the company the flexibility to move if the internal and equity market situations are favorable,” a statement from the company read.In addition, Japfa is pursuing a hedging strategy in relation to its dollar-denominated bonds and, for the next two to three months, hedging foreign currency payment obligations in relation to raw material purchases for its animal feed production. Hedging is essentially a risk management strategy. Japfa’s total liabilities soared more than 17 percent yoy in the first three months to Rp 16.09 trillion (US$1.13 billion). Its net assets value stood at Rp 27.64 trillion, increasing almost 10 percent annually.The company said it would continue to educate its farmer partners on production quality enhancement and competitiveness skills as part of its business strategy. Throughout last year, Japfa also expanded its operational networks to increase proximity with its partners. “To meet the market’s demands, both domestic and foreign, Japfa will continue to increase its productivity, including by developing our human resources so they progress and develop as the company grows,” Japfa vice president director Bambang Budi Hendarto said in a statement on Thursday.Japfa is currently the country’s second biggest producer of animal feed and day-old-chicks (DOC). It booked Rp 9.08 trillion in net revenue during this year’s first quarter, an increase of 6 percent year-on-year (yoy). Its net profit, however, jumped more than 10 percent annually to Rp 343.88 billion.The shareholders meeting also decided to disburse around Rp 234.53 billion in dividends to its shareholders, the company’s spokesperson told The Jakarta Post after the meeting concluded. The dividends are equal to 13.29 percent of the company’s 2019 net profit of Rp 1.77 trillion. Its net profit last year was 22.82 percent less than the Rp 2.17 trillion it booked it 2018. The company booked an 8 percent increase in net sales to Rp 36.74 trillion in 2019 from Rp 34.01 trillion a year earlier, driven by a rise in sales volume across the board despite a depressed sell prices of live birds. “The biggest contribution came from the animal feed business segment,” Bambang said. Throughout the past month, Japfa’s shares, traded on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) under the code JPFA, have rallied 41.11 percent. The stocks rose 0.79 percent to Rp 1,280 apiece as of 1:40 p.m. Jakarta time on Friday, as the main gauge, the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), climbed 0.5 percent.“To anticipate any worsening in the economy given the prolonged COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia, the management froze non-essential new capex,” Mirae Asset Sekuritas Indonesia analyst Emma A Fauni wrote in a research report published on May 20. She also lauded the company’s plans to conduct rights issue and share buybacks.“Japfa is one of our preferred picks in the [basic industry] sector considering its good earnings quality and the 69 percent discount price to earnings (P/E) to [rival] Charoen Pokphand,” she wrote.Topics : Publicly listed poultry company PT Japfa Comfeed Indonesia is gearing its business strategy toward overcoming the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.In addition to working to improve the efficiency of its production and internal operations, it will also continue to focus on its core business, as it sees the low-level of animal protein consumption in Indonesia as an opportunity to improve its business performance, the company wrote in its 2019 annual report. The company’s general shareholders meeting on Thursday also approved rights issue and share buyback plans.last_img read more

Final settlement reached in massive Robocalling case

first_imgRobocalling Attorney General Pam Bondi, the Federal Trade Commission and nine other state attorneys general announced on Tuesday the entry of the last consent judgment shutting down an illegal robocalling scheme used to sell Florida cruise line vacations.The unlawful telemarketing campaign flooded consumers from across the country with billions of unwanted robocalls, averaging 12 to 15 million illegal calls a day, and generated millions of dollars for the companies. The fifth and final consent judgment announced bars owner Fred Accuardi and his companies from assisting or participating in actions that violate telemarketing laws.Attorney General, Pam Bondi.In 2015, Attorney General Bondi, in partnership with the FTC and other state attorneys general, filed a lawsuit against Caribbean Cruise Line, Inc., a marketing company, as well as seven other companies, for alleged involvement in a scheme that used political survey robocalls to illegally sell cruise vacations. The joint complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.The complaint alleged that the defendants’ robocalls violated both Florida and federal law by unlawfully using political surveys as a pretext to place sales calls pitching Bahamas cruises and related vacation packages to individuals on do-not-call lists and other individuals they were prohibited from calling.Accuardi and his companies allegedly assisted and facilitated the illegal calls by providing robocallers with hundreds of telephone numbers. The defendants also allegedly made it possible for robocallers to change their caller identification information, funded a portion of the robocalling campaigns, and hid the robocallers’ identities from authorities.In addition to barring Accuardi and his businesses from illegal telemarketing, the consent judgment imposes a judgment of $1.35 million, which will be suspended after the defendants pay $2,500. If the court finds that the defendants misrepresented their financial condition, the entire judgment will become due.Florida and the FTC led the joint action and were joined by attorneys general in nine other states: Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Washington.This is just the latest action taken by Attorney General Bondi in partnership with the FTC to clamp down on illegal operations in Florida.Consumers who receive robocall solicitations can report the calls to the Florida Attorney General’s Office by calling (866) 9-NO-SCAM or file a complaint by visiting MyFloridaLegal.com.last_img read more
