Thornbury House responds to the needs of a growing family to create a space that is both intimate and generous. The client required a renovation from the front of the house, which would extend to its rear to allow for new living areas and master bedroom, while maintaining as large a rear garden as possible.Save this picture!© Ben ClementThe design of the project centred on the simultaneous accommodation of long-term visitors and spaces that allow for diverse activities. These priorities were guided by sustainability, cost-effectiveness and maintenance.Save this picture!© Ben ClementThe main volumes comprise highly insulated, light-weight timber construction with limited steel elements. Cement sheet cladding to the upper storey’s exterior was chosen for its minimized maintenance utility, while Vic Ash timber veneer and cork compose the interior features.Save this picture!Site PlanIn addition to insulated in-slab hydronic coils, glazing to the site’s north enhances the thermal mass of the ground floor slab through optimised sun penetration, which warms the living and dining areas. The upper floor provides an eave to the folded back glazing, negating the hot summer sun.Save this picture!© Ben ClementThe double height of the living space makes use of stack ventilation through an operable highlight window that naturally draws hot air up and out, endorsing the space as one for entertaining. The ceiling fan is reversible, which helps push warm air down during the colder months, providing a sense of cosiness.Save this picture!© Ben ClementFor this family, the kitchen is very much the heart of the home, and its location in the house highlights this. The kitchen’s planning took into consideration big cooking sessions, providing generous bench space and ample room for two or more people to cook at the same time. The bathrooms are designed to be mini retreats; sheltered and private with good natural light, and warmth offered by way of timber joinery.Save this picture!© Ben ClementProject gallerySee allShow lessA.

House of voids is located in a gated community in urban Bangalore. The site, 50ftX100ft with the shorter side along the road faces south. The most prominent element of the house is a 6’ deep verandah/balcony around the son’s bedroom on the south and south eastern side at second floor level. The deep-set balcony was a response to the harsh south sun and privacy from the road.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe client aspired to build a house that would be more than just a place to live in or a statement to make. For him, it was more of a legacy that he would leave behind for the generations to come. While keeping his aspirations in mind, the architecture narrative was built by shaping the voids both internally and externally, rather than starting with a form or geometry in mind. We scooped out masses on the south and south east side resulting in deep set balconies which compositionally balanced the stoic white walls to which it was anchored to. The voids were then articulated further by cladding the cantilever balcony edges with steatite (soap stone) and a series of sliding-folding teak wood louver shutters. These two elements also pronounced the horizontality of the verandah.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe teak ceiling comes all the way to the edge of the building terminating with steatite stone cladding, further emphasizing the void under the deep cantilevered slabs. The poise induced by the light filigree like wooden screen across the south and south east edge and the cantilevered slab anchored to the walls on the south west and eastern side, stood in contrast to the fragility brought in by resting the south east corner of the balcony over a circular column. This strategy helped us in anchoring the eye to the void below the loggia and creating a sense of balance between the solid and void.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSpatial planning of the house was primarily dictated by Vastu (ancient Indian science of orientation and spatial planning in Architecture) and the linearity of the site. Vastu mandated for an entry to the house from the NE (3rd quadrant of the plot) part of the house. This prompted us to leave a good 10’ wide space at the ground floor which was landscaped with a strip of tropical plants all along the eastern side.  The House was designed from inside out, scooping out volumes intermittently, thereby creating these double height public spaces on either side of the central corridor. The large expanse of veneer clad false ceiling at the first-floor level unifies these spaces under a single element.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JEach member although part of a close-knit family, has their own space within the house and the bedrooms opening up to their semi open space creating a world within a world for each member. We strived to achieve a balance between the austerity of white walls and the visually rich texture of timber and stone creating simple spaces that would always be. Devoid of embellishments, the architecture and interior expresses strong and clean lines.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JProject gallerySee allShow lessRenovation of SMOORE Headquarters Industrial Park / CM DesignSelected ProjectsHerschel Supply China Office / LinehouseSelected Projects Share KH Aircon Solutions Private Limited “COPY” Houses CopyHouses•Bangalore, India Projects Divya Ethirajan, Pramod Jaiswal Landscape: BetweenSpaces, Khalid Pasha Architects: BetweenSpaces Area Area of this architecture project Structural Consultant: Area:  1020 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 Guruprasad Kalkura India Year:  ArchDaily Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/944629/house-of-voids-betweenspaces Clipboardlast_img read more

Border Ag Inspector Bill Headed to President Trump

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Border Ag Inspector Bill Headed to President Trump By NAFB News Service – Feb 11, 2020 The House of Representatives passed a bill that authorizes funding for more agriculture inspectors to work with U.S. Customs. The Hagstrom Report says the House passed the legislation, known as the Protecting America’s Food and Agriculture Act of 2019 after it had already passed the Senate.“I’ve long raised the issue of inadequate staffing levels at the border,” says House Ag Committee Chair Collin Peterson. “It’s critical that we have enough CBP agriculture inspectors, specialists, and canine teams to protect our rural communities and our economy from foreign animal and plant pests and diseases.”A joint press conference featuring several representatives from agricultural states expressed happiness that the bill made it through both chambers of Congress. The legislation authorizes the hiring of 240 new agriculture specialists and 200 agriculture technicians until staffing shortages are resolved. It also assigns 20 agriculture canine teams to prevent harmful pests and foreign animal diseases from getting into the United States.During the press conference, the lawmakers pointed out that the country faces a shortage of agricultural inspectors that could leave the U.S. ag industry vulnerable to diseases, pests, and other threats that could potentially devastate the American economy and affect the health and safety of millions of American people.

Journalist arrested after writing article about a double murder

first_img News MyanmarAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association (BMA) have called for the immediate release of Saw Myint Than, chief reporter on the privately-owned magazine Flower News Journal who was arrested after writing an article about the murder of a couple.Police arrested Saw Myint Than, aged 30, on 1st September 2008 then placed him in custody under the electronic telecommunications law. News Follow the news on Myanmar to go further News May 31, 2021 Find out more September 4, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist arrested after writing article about a double murder Receive email alerts “The article that led to Saw Myint Than’s arrest had been checked by the military censorship bureau, so we cannot understand why he is being hounded by the Rangoon police,” the worldwide press freedom organisation and the BMA said.“Their objection seems to be that he made email contact with Burmese living abroad. We fear that yet again a Burmese journalist is being arrested and tried without access to a proper defence, simply for having covered an event,” the two organisations said.The latest arrest brings to 12 the number of journalists and bloggers currently being held in Burma’s jails.Police at the Kyauktada arrested Saw Myint Than on 1st September. A few days beforehand, on 26 August, he had been summoned by police over his article about the murder of a couple. He was manhandled and threatened by a police officer who told him that he had the power to arrest him and to close down the newspaper.The report on the murder had however been passed by the military censorship bureau. Saw Myint Than was summoned again on the following day but the editor refused to let him go in order to protect him. But several sources said the management of Flower News Journal subsequently sacked him under official pressure.A journalist in Rangoon told the two organisations that Saw Myint Than was being held under the Electronics Law that regulates emails and under an article in the criminal code that punishes criticism of the authorities. Police who are holding him in solitary confinement at the station in Kyauktada also apparently acted because he had been in contact with Burmese organisations abroad. After his summons, he answered questions put to him by a journalist on Irrawaddy.org, based in Thailand.In another case, the Censorship Bureau has banned all coverage of demonstrations taking place in Thailand. According to the website Irrawaddy.org, the local version of US cable channel CNN, put out by Family Entertainment, a release from the information ministry has also been stripped of all news about the situation in Thailand. The current head of the Thai government has voiced support for Burma’s military junta and said that international talks on the future of the country should be held without Aung San Suu Kyi.

According to the findings of an ISAF investigation, released yesterday, he was shot when he tried to show his press card because the US soldier thought he was about detonate a suicide vest.“We again offer our condolences to Khpalwak’s family,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This mishap has highlighted the constant danger for civilians and journalists, who are often at the center of the fighting. We had asked for light to be shed on the circumstances surrounding Khpalwak’s death and we are satisfied with the investigation that was carried out.“In the light of its findings, we urge ISAF’s members to take more care when they are securing the sites of clashes. The protection of journalists and civilians must continue to be a priority for all soldiers during their presence in Afghanistan. And we call for assistance to be given to Khpalwak’s family, as it would be to the family of an officer killed in combat.”“Although US soldiers were responsible for Khpalwak’s death, it is important to stress the Taliban’s responsibility as well. It was the Taliban who launched the attack that led to his death and it is the Taliban who continue to pose the leading threat to the safety of journalists and to the freedom of the media and information in Afghanistan.”The investigation was carried out by an officer appointed by ISAF commander Gen. John R. Allen. In its conclusions, his report said: “The investigating officer found that the ISAF member involved in this incident complied with the laws of armed conflict and rules of engagement and acted reasonably under the circumstances.” RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan AfghanistanAsia – Pacific center_img March 11, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News News News News Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Follow the news on Afghanistanlast_img read more
