The village of Mathon has remained remarkably intact without significant alterations to the built fabric. At its heart sits an old wooden barn which has fallen into disrepair. If it were to be demolished it would never be replaced creating a gap in the centre of the village. To preserve both the structure of the barn and its role in the village ensemble it is converted into an alpine loft, a place for work and reflection. The project draws upon examples from far away, most prominently the Japanese house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office HaratoriSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!Courtesy of Office HaratoriSave this picture!Section BLoving the OrdinaryBuildings are more than singular objects; they are part of the urban environment they shape.

The Coral House was located on a square flat site in a quiet residential neighbourhood in Singapore. Designed for a young couple with three small children, the house aimed to create dynamic spaces that encourage play and interaction. The house embraces Singapore’s tropical climate by creating open, well ventilated spaces in an interlocking composition of building, garden, pool, pond and roof gardens that integrates as much as nature as possible in the in the densely urban environment of Singapore.

The two-storey building is set out as an L-shape and is counter balanced by a single storey open verandah with an accessible roof garden on the opposite end. Main living and dining areas are located on the ground floor with service areas hidden behind the main staircase. The bedrooms and study room are on the first floor; the master bedroom and children’s bedroom are located at opposite end of the building’s L-shape, separated by the main staircase. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham-HallWater and garden make up the main component of the central courtyard. From the main entrance, the focal point is a water garden comprising a large fish pond with a tree-filled island. The movement of water and fish brings life into the courtyard and draw the eye away from the building. Further down the living and kitchen area the fish pond transforms into a shallow freshwater reflective pond which then merge into a 3m deep swimming pool. The swimming pool wraps around the verandah and is encased within a long raised strip of clear acrylic panel. The acrylic panel extends into the basement level and becomes a window to the subterranean media room, bringing nature light and movement to what would otherwise be a still and dark space. Save this picture!Section ACirculation is unrestricted around the courtyard, the main stair links from the courtyard on the ground floor to an open corridor which runs along the first floor joining the bedrooms and the roof gardens. Each bedroom looks onto the main courtyard and extends out onto a roof garden. The roof gardens allow a direct relationship with the garden, break down the 2-storey massing of the house and create an illusion of a single storey building. From the street the bedrooms are seen peeping above the edge of the roof garden which is softened by an abundance of overhanging vegetation and colour.

Cross ventilation is maximized by the careful placement of the building on site, large roof overhang has been designed to shade the glazed area from the strong sun. The integration of extensive landscaping on all floors helps to reduce carbon dioxide and contribute to water retention, reducing the pressure of the surface water system at heavy rain times.

Located in a leafy neighborhood, ‘The House within the Grid’ sits on a slightly elevated plot accessed by a silent road.Designed for a doctor couple and their 4 children, based in Sharjah, this house was meant as a place for relaxation, rejuvenation and bonding during their frequent visits to Kerala. The sprawling house and its many rooms were designed to accommodate and entertain the family as well as several relatives and friends who may join them during such occasions. Eventually, as this house was meant to become their permanent home, it was designed as one than just a holiday home.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasSave this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe house is composed of 2 distinct parallel bays connected in between. Each of these bays consists of a set of defined functional areas and a linear circulation spine that dissolves into the parent room wherever possible. A mix of primary and secondary functions, with its two different room widths, creates a visible repetitive spatial pattern throughout the house. This project was an exercise in exploiting the spatial possibilities offered by the surprisingly flexible modular grid. Juxtaposing the rigorous but serene geometry of the house with the incoherent landscape of its site, a distinct spatial language evolved to become a subtle stage for the contemplative daily activities.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasOne enters the house through a shaded sit-out area, trapped in an external courtyard, which connects itself to the formal sit-out to the left and the office space to the right.The single storied bay on the eastern side of the site, composed of undulating volumes, houses the public and semiprivate zone, such as the visitor’s lounge, formal living, common prayer area, dining, powder rooms, etc. towards the front and more private zone, like the kitchen, work area, kitchen court, utility, etc. towards the back. The double storied volume on the western side of the site houses the six bedrooms along with their attached toilets and a compact office space with a patio overlooking a shallow pool. This bay extends towards the north to house an open and a closed car porch, both accessible from the paved front yard. Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasSave this picture!Gif – PlansSave this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe two main bays were detached from each other to offer the bedroom block its much needed privacy. However, connecting these two bays, while strictly adhering to the grid configuration of the house, is a family/ space each on either of the floors. The staircase was positioned in this zone to make the circulation far more efficient. This central space, while creating an access between the main bays, becomes a casual lounging area encouraging communication between the family members.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasTwo large courtyards trapped between the parallel bays to enhance the ventilation and the circulation in the project. The entry court towards the north acts as an extension of the sit-out. While the larger court towards the south, an extension of the ground floor family space and the dining, with a dining patio and a swimming pool becomes the much needed spill out space. The dense vegetation outside these courtyards contrasts with the sparse regimented landscape,placed within the grids of the house, to create an enjoyable medley.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe strategically laid out plan while providing privacy to the family members also facilitates thorough cross ventilation by channeling the seasonal shift of the predominant wind through its spaces by the virtue of its orientation. This keeps the rooms as airy as possible, maintaining the internal temperatures at a possible low. The undulating volumes along with the several cantilevered slabs shade each other in the shifting tropical sun. These floating roofs also help efficiently collect rainwater which then runs through a series of custom designed stainless steel rain water drain pipes, populated across the project, to the designated water collection chamber. A series of solar panels positioned on these large roofs helps produce the necessary power for the house to be self-sufficient and keep the house off the grid.

They ran the most imaginative and creative campaign on social media and will get to star and feature on a Community Chest card. We feel this is an appropriate position on the board, with Laura Crane being such an integral part of the Huddersfield and wider community.”He added:“There were two polls held earlier in the year. One for general landmarks, a second specifically for charities. The response to both was way beyond our expectations. We would like to thank each and every person who took the time to vote and to nominate. We have studied each suggestion and vote – in their thousands – and the edition is now in the pre-production and design stage.”Other towns in the UK with their own Monopoly editions include Guildford, which got its own board in 2016, Taunton (2017), Bath (2007), Exeter (2015), and York (2010). When a town is chosen to have its own set, there is a public vote to choose what should feature on the board, including local charities.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. A special Huddersfield edition of Monopoly is being created with three charities included on the board after the game makers asked the public what they should include.Winning Moves UK, which is licensed to produce the game for Hasbro, which owns Monopoly, launched the competition to find a new town to have its own Monopoly board in time for Christmas 2018. A two-month public poll saw Huddersfield beat Halifax, with the special edition due out in October. Voting then took place to decide on what should feature on the board.The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust ran a campaign to secure public votes, and is one of three local charities that will be included. Huddersfield landmarks like Castle Hill, St. George’s Square and Felix the Railway Cat are also likely to take leading spots on the property spaces made famous in the original London game. The game can be pre-ordered from the charity’s homepage.Charity Manager Pam Thornes said:“Laura Crane was a Huddersfield girl and her charity has been at the heart of the Huddersfield community for more than 20 years. It is thanks to the truly wonderful people of Huddersfield that the charity has been able to make such a huge difference to the lives of young cancer patients, both locally – and further afield.”Afolabi Omotola, Custom Games Executive at Winning Moves UK said: Advertisement

News to go further Follow the news on Bangladesh Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the beating received by local reporter Mizanur Rahman Kawser on the orders of Manjurul Ahsan Munshi, a parliamentary representative for the ruling Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), in the southeastern city of Comilla on 3 September. Kawser is also being harassed at Munshi’s behest and has been held for several days on a theft charge. He was freed on bail on 5 September.“This repeated use of physical violence and judicial harassment is coming at a moment of tension between the government and opposition,” the press freedom organisation said. “Attacks on journalists are rarely condemned by the authorities or ruling party officials. This allows a climate of impunity that encourages more violence. We call for Kawser’s protection and for Munshi and his thugs to be punished.”The local correspondent for the Amar Desh daily newspaper, Kawser was beaten for nearly an hour on 3 September in Munshi’s presence before being handed over to the police. This took place after he accompanied a group of people who went to Munshi’s home in Comilla to submit to him a written demand for electricity in their locality.Munshi subsequently ordered his supporters to ransack Kawser’s home. Kawser appeared in court on the theft charge on 5 September. His brother, Atiqur Rahman Bashar, who is the correspondent of the Prothom Alo daily and president of the press club of Debidwar (a district of Comilla), has also been formally accused by Munshi of extortion.Munshi is well-known for his attacks on the media. Last February, for example, he prevented a meeting on the subject of press freedom from being held in Debidwar. Several journalists have been insulted and driven out of the region.Meanwhile, in the southeastern city of Porshuram, Weekly Zohur correspondent Jahanara Ferdous is constantly being threatened and accused of drug trafficking and prostitution by Kazi Mohamed Jahir Uddin Arif, the head of the local BNP student wing. Reporters Without Borders is concerned for her safety and calls on the police, who have not given her any protection, to investigate Arif’s activities.

The memo mentioned in particular a ban on attending political fundraising concerts.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Laszewski said he felt the memo did not concern him because he belongs to a team of investigative journalists and the memo was addressed to political reporters and staff working weekends. He also stressed that he went to a concert and not a political rally and that he has always paid great attention to professional ethics and had himself campaigned for the creation of an ethics committee within the newspaper in 2000.Gowler meanwhile was sticking to her position. She argues that investigative journalists can be required to work weekends and cover politics. The journalists’ union, the Newspaper Guild, is contesting the sanctions and has called for arbitration.Many newspapers throughout the United States have banned staff from attending this type of concert but, to our knowledge, this is the first time anyone has been sanctioned.

Moreover, the Single Judge said, “If the child in womb is allowed to be born, his/her mental agony will be no less. He/she will always be reminded of petitioner’s past and the fact that his/her paternity is not known, will continue to throb his/her heart and hammer his/her mind and soul”. The Court harboured “no doubt” that “the petitioner, who has been forced in whorism against her wishes, has been impregnated by an unknown person, consequent to her forced promiscuous physical relations”. In these facts, the Single Judge opined that the conception is no less than a pregnancy to have been caused by rape for the purpose of Explanation-I appended with sub- section (2) of Section 3 of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act of 1971. Expanding the scope of the Explanation, the judge noted that the Petitioner’s mental agony is comparable to a victim of rape. “The age of foetus is 17 weeks and three days and petitioner has expressed her unwavering resolve to abort. There is thus, no legal impediment, as noticed above”, reads the judgment. In passing the order for the foetus to be aborted within 3 days, it was clear to the court that “the petitioner, a hapless girl, who is literally orphan, has been thrusted in the prostitution, apparently against her will”. Accordingly, the medical termination of pregnancy is permissible for the purpose of “protecting the victim from the trauma of being ravished, coupled with the fact that the baby to be born will remain with her and continue to remind her of the agony she has suffered during her confinement in the brothel”. The judge proceeded to observe that She may continue to have a feeling of repulsion or revenge for the person(s) who have thrown her in the disgraceful profession, that The baby, whose paternity is not known, in turn, would continue to cause mental agony to her. “In the present facts, abortion is imperative, so that the petitioner can settle in life and the baby does not emerge as a snag in her possible peaceful life. In the extant facts, termination is rather necessary to sever the maternal tie between the petitioner and her baby to be born”, was the view of the court. The petitioner’s prayer was examined from the perspective of the child in womb too, “who is also a living organ”- The prospective child in the womb has no say in the proceedings, so the Court substituted itself as parent – the parens patriae and attempted a balancing exercise. “If the foetus in womb is permitted to bloom as a child and allowed to born, his/her life will offer more miseries than the one time shock he/she will suffer on account of his/her premature death consequent to medical termination of petitioner’s pregnancy. Such child would be left at the mercy of people like (the brothel-owner who had illegally confined the petitioner and compelled her to practice prostitution)”, expressed the court. The Court clarified that the present petition has been allowed, having regard to the peculiarity of the facts involved and The same may not be treated to be precedent laying down an absolute law, that every woman engaged in prostitution has an inviolable right to get her pregnancy terminated.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story
