Situated in a beautiful archipelago, this seaside cabin is a replacement project for a worn-out, unpractical cabin which was dominating the site. The area’s building code and its following obstructions have formed the project in size and form, as well as an enhanced site-specific adaption to the landscape.

All three outdoor rooms give several sun and shelter options during the day. The cabin is placed between two rocks and the characteristic landscape makes the cabin appear low in the terrain.

The division is to be seen in the opposing facades – one is private and enclosed, the other is open and transparent.

Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, this 3,600 sq.ft. site hosted a 25-year-old single storey house. Unfortunately, we decided to bring down this structure as it was in a dilapidated state, its interiors were gloomy & also, it wasn’t a ‘vaastushastra’ (traditional Hindu science of architecture) compliant house – which was the client’s main requirement.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Hemant PatilStudy of the site surroundings & the existing structure showed that the main reasons for the existing house being dull & dark were the parking+3 storey bungalow on the east side of the site that was cutting off the morning sun & small opening sizes which didn’t allow enough light to penetrate into the house. In order to cater to this issue, we decided to anchor all the spaces in the new design to a central ‘sky light’ which would not only draw in light during the entire day but also act as a ‘brahmasthan’ (an important aspect related to ‘vaastushastra’) of the house. Also, having large windows to all the rooms was the logical way forward. Save this picture!© Hemant PatilAlong with the norms of ‘vaastushastra’, the larger planning principle used was to divide the house into 2 functional zones – one for the private spaces & the other for the public spaces – along the north-south axis. The client’s demand of having all the daily necessity spaces – living, dining, kitchen, pooja room (area dedicated to worship to God), 2 bedrooms & toilets – on the ground floor was also catered to. Save this picture!© Hemant PatilThe living & the kitchen were placed on either side of the central ‘sky light’, below which the magnet of the entire house was placed – the dining area. The positioning of an L-type, folded plate, ferrocrete staircase around the dining added a play to this central core. The living extends onto the outdoor seating area which hosts a traditional Indian swing that the client had bought from Rajasthan. The kitchen is connected to the utility space at the rear side (south side) of the house. Continuing the same grid, the first floor is composed of 2 bedrooms, toilets & a multi-purpose room. Carving out a block from the ground floor grid, provision was made for 2 car parks next to the entry porch.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilThe client wanted a house that was simple but still makes a statement. We took this up as a challenge & started exploring different ways of architectural expression. Our research took us to the traditional residential typology of Pune – the ‘wada’ – which was always as simple & elegant and was mostly constructed in exposed brick or basalt stone or both. We decided to use brick as it is a reasonable material from environment as well as cost perspective. Moreover, the warmth & the aesthetics provided by brick as a material is unmatched.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilSave this picture!Section BBMassing of the structure has been kept very subtle & focus has been put on highlighting the materiality of brick. To complement the red colour of the bricks, exposed concrete box windows & weather shades have been introduced. Also, the square grid of rough cement finish plaster on the compound wall accentuates the presence of bricks. In order to break the monotony of the brick façade & also to provide privacy, ‘jaali’ (perforated wall in brick) work has been used.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilWhile the material palette (brick & concrete) for the exteriors of the building is carefully chosen to give it a simple, natural & a playful look; the interiors also follow a similar approach. The material palette comprising of teakwood finish & light colours helps in providing a neat, clean & a spacious ambience.Save this picture!Section AAThe main USP of the interior design is the use of ‘patterns’ in defining different spaces. The seed of this once again lies in our study of the traditional Indian architecture where the use of such patterns is evident in floorings, wall carvings, ceilings, etc. According to ‘vaastushastra’ the use of such shapes & patterns boosts the energy flow & generates positive vibrations. These positive vibrations are what transform a house into ‘a home’ – an abode. We call this house THE BRICK ABODE. Save this picture!© Hemant PatilProject gallerySee allShow lessPavilion In The Forest / Bansong StudioSelected ProjectsPritzker Prize Laureate Gottfried Böhm Passes Away at 101Architecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/963133/brick-abode-alok-kothari-architects Clipboard Projects ArchDaily Brick Abode / Alok Kothari ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBrick Abode / Alok Kothari Architects Brick Abode / Alok Kothari Architects India Year:  CopyHouses•Pune, India Area:  2600 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/963133/brick-abode-alok-kothari-architects Clipboard “COPY” “COPY” Houses Photographs:  Hemant Patil Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Alok Kothari Architects Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Hemant Patil+ 24Curated by Hana Abdel Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeAlok Kothari ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPuneOn FacebookBrick HousesIndiaPublished on June 10, 2021Cite: “Brick Abode / Alok Kothari Architects” 10 Jun 2021.

Lloyds Bank Foundation to give £3m to tackle domestic abuse

first_img Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales has today begun a three-year national programme designed to improve responses to domestic abuse and strengthen the sector. It will invest £3 million over three years in domestic abuse sector organisations.The Foundation has 30 years experience of funding individual domestic abuse charities. Its concerns for the sector’s future were raised in its recent report, Expert Yet Undervalued and On the Front Line. It argues that, with reduced funding and poor public commissioning, the survival of specialist charities is seriously threatened.The new programme has begun with an initial investment of £800,000.This will support and expand a partnership between Women’s Aid and Imkaan to enable small and specialist charities tackling domestic abuse to better prepare for, adapt and compete for funding contracts across England. In Wales, Welsh Women’s Aid is also being supported to help charities prepare for new commissioning arrangements.In addition to the new funding, the Foundation is hoping to influence commissioning, policy and practice.Paul Streets OBE, Chief Executive of Lloyds Bank Foundation, said:“We are proud to be able to launch this new package of funding and advocacy for small and specialist domestic abuse charities which deliver life-saving services yet face uncertain futures. But as an independent funder our support can only go so far. With two women a week being killed by their partners and thousands more suffering domestic abuse, we need the government to take up the mantle in ensuring that those experiencing domestic abuse can access the support they need from the organisations best equipped to help them.“The Prime Minister’s manifesto commitment to reforming domestic abuse commissioning was an important one, but now we need concrete action in the Spending Review later this month to guarantee the future of specialist services. Because without it they may not survive, which could have a catastrophic impact on those who need their help now and in the future.” Lloyds Bank Foundation to give £3m to tackle domestic abuse Tagged with: England Funding Wales / Cymru Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 11 November 2015 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The victim’s mother informed the Court that the Petitioner-accused has married her daughter (the prosecutrix) and she has no objection if the Petitioner is released on anticipatory bail. The prosecutrix was also present in the hearing via video conferencing. The bail application was however opposed by the Additional Public Prosecutor Meenakshi Chauhan who submitted that the prosecutrix has supported her allegations in her statement recorded under Section 164 CrPC. The Petitioner-accused, a Government servant, also stated that FIR against him had been lodged on account of a misunderstanding between the parties and the Complainant has already given her request for re-recording of her statement under Section 164 CrPC. In view of these submissions, a Single Bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Ohri allowed the pre-arrest bail plea and ordered that in the event of his arrest, the petitioner be released on anticipatory bail, subject to his furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs.25,000/- with one surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of the concerned Arresting Officer. The order states, “Keeping in view the totality of the facts and circumstances, it is directed that in the event of his arrest, the petitioner be released on anticipatory bail…” Related News Recently, the Madhya Pradesh High Court granted temporary two-month bail to a rape accused, so that during this period he may solemnize his marriage with the prosecutrix/complainant. In 2018, the Supreme Court had invoked its inherent powers under Article 142 of the Constitution to modify the sentence of a rape accused to the period already undergone, to alleviate any further suffering of the prosecutrix, who had married him soon after the alleged incident. In July this year, a plea was filed before the Kerala High Court asserting that rape is a non-compoundable offence and allowing a rape convict’s plea for suspension of sentence to marry the rape survivor will set a bad precedent. “Given the skewed power dynamics and the nature and history of the case, the possibility of the victim’s consent being vitiated by fear, intimidation or trauma cannot be ruled out – an apprehension that received judicial recognition by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Shimbhu (Supra),” the plea stated. In Shimbhu v. State of Haryana, (2014) 13 SCC 318, the Supreme Court had held: “A compromise entered into between the parties cannot be construed as a leading factor based on which lesser punishment can be awarded. Rape is a non-compoundable offence and it is an offence against the society and is not a matter to be left for the parties to compromise and settle. Since the Court cannot always be assured that the consent given by the victim in compromising the case is a genuine consent, there is every chance that she might have been pressurised by the convicts or the trauma undergone by her all the years might have compelled her to opt for a compromise. In fact, accepting this proposition will put an additional burden on the victim. The accused may use all his influence to pressurise her for a compromise. So, in the interest of justice and to avoid unnecessary pressure/harassment to the victim, it would not be safe in considering the compromise arrived at [pic]between the parties in rape cases to be a ground for the Court to exercise the discretionary power under the proviso of Section 376(2) IPC.” Case Title: Roshan v.

Inside the state park where visitors dig for diamonds

first_imgJanet Weinstein/ABC News(MURFREESBORO, Ark.) — It was a scorchingly hot day in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, but Kenneth Gillespie wasn’t ready to give up on his dream of hitting it big just yet.Since quitting his teaching job, Gillespie has been spending a lot of time at Crater of Diamonds State Park, hoping to strike it rich.“This is my vacation from life,”  he told ABC News. “And there’s a potential to hit something.  I see the mine like buying a scratcher.”Gillespie is far from alone. For a $10 admission fee, anyone can come and try their hand at diamond digging, and according to the park’s website, more than 182,000 people visited last year alone, unearthing a total of 445 diamonds.Hundreds of millions of years ago, a volcanic eruption more than 100 miles below the earth’s surface left precious jewels scattered throughout the soil of the 911-acre park, according to Jeff Post, curator of the National Gem and Mineral Collection at the Smithsonian Institution.“The diamonds were entombed in the cooled volcanic rock, lamproite,”  Post told ABC News. “Subsequently, the rock eroded to form the lamproite soil and the scattered diamonds. “Al and Alberta Fling are regular diggers who moved from Colorado and now live nearby the park. The couple is among the more serious treasure hunters who rent seasonal cages to up their chances of finding diamonds.“It originally started when my wife lost her wedding band,” Mr. Fling told ABC News. “I promised her something, and don’t promise something that you can’t hold up to.”Al Fling found a 0.77-point canary yellow diamond, but the couple kept coming back.“Now what I’m doing is playing,” he laughed. “I’m enjoying it. I don’t have the pressure of finding the wife that diamond now.”But Alberta Fling said her dream is to take home a 10-carat stone.“That would make me plenty happy!” she told ABC News.The Flings aren’t the only couple out in the fields finding diamonds in the rough.In 2011, Kenny and Melissa Oliver found a 2.44-carat diamond they called the “silver moon.” It was later appraised for more than $21,000.“When I took the screen out of the water, that big rock was sitting there and I knew what it was!” Melissa Oliver told ABC News.She said their families still don’t understand their passion for digging.“Our families and friends, you know, think we’re crazy!” she said. “They say, ‘Y’all are crazy, it’s too hard of work to find a diamond.’”But, she explained, “it’s not actually finding the treasure. It’s the quest.”Not everyone’s quest ends with bling, however.“Diamonds are not easily found,” Bill Henderson, the park’s assistant superintendent, told ABC News. “Not only does it take a lot of expertise and determination, sometimes you have to be a little lucky, too, to find it.”Near where Gillespie was hunting for diamonds, Rick Clause sifted through mounds of soil.“Today is our 31st wedding anniversary, so I thought we’d come and try and find a diamond,” Clause told ABC News.He and his wife, Charlotte, had traveled from Louisville, Kentucky.“Remember when Charlie Brown went trick or treating? All he ever got was rocks,” Clause laughed. “That’s all I ever got.”To find the diamonds, diggers bring loads of soil to water troughs to sift through, searching for a sparkle. Most of the diggers use communal water troughs for sifting, and they’re where many tourists are directed to when they first come to the park.As Rick Clause dipped the rocks he had found in the water, his wife rested in the shade.“It’s just hot,” Charlotte Clause said, sounding somewhat exasperated. “It’s time to go.”But for those who are willing to come back day after day, die-hard diggers say there’s more than stones to be gained.As Alberta Fling sifted through piles of dirt using an improvised strainer and a rusty wheelbarrow, she said she enjoys coming to the park because it gives her “a solitude.”“When you go home, you rest well,” she said. “And your life’s more enriched for it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Man, two dogs rescued from truck partially submerged in icy river

first_imgSublette County Sheriff’s OfficeBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A driver and his two dogs were rescued from a Wyoming river this week after the man’s pickup truck became partially submerged in the icy water.The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office released body-camera footage Wednesday of the late-night rescue, which took about 30 minutes from the time the call came in to when the driver was in emergency medical services care, authorities told ABC News.A crew of first responders, including sheriff’s deputies, EMS, county firefighters and volunteers trained in ice and swift water rescue, arrived on the scene after a nearby homeowner called 911 at around 10 p.m. local time Sunday.In the footage, a deputy can be heard coaxing the driver onto the bed of his truck.“Good job. Keep moving towards me,” the deputy can be heard yelling to the driver.“It’s so cold,” he says after climbing through the window onto the bed.Deputies and firefighters were able to pull him out of the water using a ladder that extended from the ice on the bank to the bed of the truck, authorities said.Then, TipTop Search and Rescue (TTSAR) volunteers were able to rescue the two dogs still in the cab after several attempts, authorities said.Lastly, they pulled the truck out of the water by attaching a winch to the frame, which was submerged by this point, and with the help of a second tow truck.“Working in zero-degree temperatures with ice and moving water is not something TTSAR does often, but due to their training and teamwork the dedicated volunteers of TTSAR were able to accomplish the mission safely on Christmas weekend,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.The driver, identified as a man in his late 20s, was taken to a local clinic for evaluation. His current condition is not known.Authorities are investigating how the truck ended up in the river and if factors such as ice were involved. There is a sharp corner near the river, Sublette County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Travis Bingham told ABC News.“We won’t know more for a little while longer,” he said.“He is very lucky,” he added.The truck was partially submerged in Green River near Reardon Draw, which is south of Big Piney in western Wyoming, authorities said.This is the first water rescue at this spot in the river to Bingham’s knowledge.“However we are in mountain winter country, and we have had multiple vehicles end up in rivers in all seasons in our county before,” he said.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Is vertical migration in Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) influenced by an underlying circadian rhythm?

first_imgAntarctic krill (Euphausia superba) is a keystone species in the southern ocean ecosystem where it is the main consumer of phytoplankton and constitutes the main food item of many higher predators. Both food and predators are most abundant at the surface, thus krill hide in the depth of the ocean during the day and migrate to the upper layers at night, to feed at a time when the predatory risk is lowest. Although the functional significance of this diel vertical migration (DVM) is clear and its modulation by environmental factors has been described, the involvement of an endogenous circadian clock in this behaviour is as yet not fully resolved. We have analysed the circadian behaviour of Euphausia superba in a laboratory setting and here we present the first description of locomotor activity rhythms for this species. Our results are in agreement with the hypothesis that the circadian clock plays a key role in DVM. They also suggest that the interplay between food availability, social cues and the light:dark cycle acts as the predominant Zeitgeber for DVM in this species.last_img read more
