Residence the architectural space we call a “House” is the image we have of a functional environment where we carry out part of our life. It is a place containing a Miniature Universe able to speak of its inhabitants and their lifetime achievements. There were three major driving forces that led to the accomplishment of the project• Climate• Context• Client’s briefSave this picture!© phxindiaIndia is a home to an extraordinary variety of climatic regions. The site being located in Surat, Gujarat falls into hot and humid climatic zone. High humidity, strong sun and glare from sky characterize the climate.

As the façade majorly needs to shade the central indoor environment the two ends are straight without bulges, giving the undulations in the centre a firm hold.Save this picture!© phxindiaThe central portion was divided in three parts each having 3 bulges in a series. To structurally hold the huge façade of 83 layers, vertical and horizontal reinforcement was added.Save this picture!© phxindiaThe chosen form served dually:• Individually the brick module shaded itself.• Convex bulges in the wall would shade its lower concave bulges, doing the same shading thing at larger levelSave this picture!Process DiagramsThe house is a perfect epitome of how a plane curtains itself. It stands out and connects to surroundings – both at the same time! The brick façade provides an ideal backdrop for the living area and major interaction spaces aesthetically adding simplicity and integrity to the design.Save this picture!© phxindiaOverall the expression of house is response to client’s affinity for nature.

The house is located in the province of Cotopaxi, in the area of Lasso. The land is part of the area of Ranchos San José in the middle of a rural environment. The order was a family house thought to enjoy the countryside, the sowing, the landscape, and the environment. The proposal takes into account some conditions for its implementation and functioning. It was proposed a discrete architecture, almost imperceptible, thought from the raw and natural material. A heavy piece contained in the land and that almost disappear in the environment while being part of it.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe house was thought as an element buried in the ground, discrete, and that do not represent an obstacle in the land. Solid stone walls are responsible for holding the inclined roof, which starts at the soil and raises containing vegetation as a continuation of the land. The stone walls in the form of “C”, displaced because of functional reasons, contains the private and functional areas. A stripe of services (bathrooms, storage warehouses, machinery rooms) in the lower area of the space works as an insulating chamber for the rooms and auxiliary spaces such as TV room and game room. The social area articulates the two parts of the house through a transparent space, which physically and visually connects the two exterior courtyards. This central space is the meeting area of all spaces. A high, clear, and flexible space, only limited by two independent wood walls in each extreme, and that separate it from the surrounding spaces (kitchen and TV room). This area of the house, defined as a social area, is where is located the main heat source, a hearth.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!Save this picture!© Jag StudioEach space of the house is confined through bahareque panels and a collaborating structure of solid eucalyptus wood. The bahareque improves the thermal and acoustic conditions of the house, while its texture and colour reinforce the intention of generating a discrete object in the landscape. All the outer limit of the house is formed by a series of collaborating columns of solid eucalyptus wood, generating panels of bahareque or glass screens that allow the entry of light, the passage of facilities, and the entrance of the house.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!Save this picture!© Jag StudioAs for the roof, it develops in two areas over the stone walls. The roof plans are made up of metal trays of 10 m and 12 m in length and a thickness of 4mm, which allows us to contain 25cm of insulating stone material and soil for adequate growth of vegetation over the house. This roof also connects the two sides of the land, as it can be transited on it and pass from one side to the other.Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe roof also extends over the only open-covered space of the house that creates a barbecue area, a space directly linked to the kitchen, and open to the main courtyard. The intermediate slab, an accessible surface, was calculated as a mixed structure that is supported on wooden and metal beams, and they are the same that extend to generate the transparent roof over the entrances.Save this picture!© Jag StudioFrom the beginning, a discrete project was proposed, which compounds itself into the environment, which does not stand out on the ground, where the vegetation prevails over the built space. This landscape strategy is the one that governs the entire area, an idea that suggests that the landscape surrounds the house. The vegetation starts at the ground and grows over the house through the roof, overflows and falls covering the stone walls. Between these two vegetable areas, two courtyards are opened, that generate green areas in the house through the glass screens. Courtyards that are raised with a lot of vegetation in the area, which invades and generates micro-landscapes that are seen only from the inside.Save this picture!© Jag StudioAround the house, a series of vegetable filters, generate a path to the house. Trees, shrubs and different types of floor materials differentiate the areas that surround the house and that direct views, entrances, and routes.Save this picture!© Jag StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessLAVA+Aspect design the Central Park of Ho Chi Minh CityArchitecture NewsNew Petition Aims to Save Charles Correa’s Kala Academy from DemolitionArchitecture News Share Photographs: Jag Studio Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeRama EstudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan JoséEcuadorPublished on August 07, 2019Cite: “Patios House / Rama Estudio” [Casa patios / Rama Estudio] 07 Aug 2019.

According to the agency the funding will create 24 posts.The grant is being provided through Galway University Foundation which over the last 15 years has received nearly €63 million from AP.The agency’s chairperson Norah Gibbons called the €8.3m grant a “once in a generation opportunity to change how the services here do child protection and family support”.The imminent closure of AP’s offices is the end of an era in philanthropy in Ireland, although grants will be distributed until 2020 to organisations the foundation has already supported. It is understood AP has appointed consultants to monitor its grant giving until 2020 but the Belfast office will close at the end of April.Atlantic Philanthropies was founded by billionaire Charles ‘Chuck’ Feeney and it has worked with educational institutions, health bodies, elderly care organisations and in the fields of youth and human rights.

ATTOM’s report showed that in the most populated urban markets, renting remains more affordable. ATTOM’s 2021 Rental Affordability Report shows that owning a median-priced three-bedroom home is more affordable than renting a three-bedroom property in 572 of the 915 U.S. counties analyzed for the report.This is true despite median home prices that are rising more than average rents over the past year in 83% of those counties and which have risen more than wages in almost two-thirds of the nation.“Home-prices are rising faster than rents and wages in the majority of the country. Yet, homeownership is still more affordable, as amazingly low mortgage rates that dropped below 3% are helping to keep the cost of rising home prices in check,“ said ATTOM’s Chief Product Officer Todd Teta. “It’s startling to see that kind of trend. But it shows how both the cost of renting has been relatively high compared to the cost of ownership and how declining interest rates are having a notable impact on the housing market and homeownership. The coming year is totally uncertain, amid so many questions connected to the coronavirus pandemic and the broader economy. But right now, owning a home still appears to be a financially-sound choice for those who can afford it.”The report goes on to break down owning versus renting regionally—that’s where the researchers learned that ownership is more affordable in counties with a population of less than 1 million, especially among those with less than 500,000 people.The report found most affordable rental markets in the South and Midwest and the least affordable in the West.It found the most affordable places to own also is in the South and Midwest. The least affordable places to own are reportedly are in the West and Northeast.ATTOM’s analysis, which can be read in full at ATTOM.com, incorporates recently released fair market rent data for 2021 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics along with public record sales deed data from ATTOM in 915 U.S. counties with sufficient home sales data.

iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — A woman accused of severely injuring a 92-year-old man with a brick is now facing charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, prosecutors said.Laquisha Jones, 30, allegedly attacked the elderly man with a brick south of Los Angeles on July 4, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.A “woman pushed him and dropped him,” a witness told ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles. “She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times.”Jones, who prosecutors said fled the scene after the assault, was arrested Tuesday and initially faced the charge of assault with a deadly weapon. The district attorney’s office announced the attempted murder and elder abuse charges on Thursday.The 92-year-old was hospitalized after the assault in Willowbrook but has since been released, reported KABC-TV. He suffered a broken cheekbone and bruises to his face, according to a GoFundMe organized by his grandson.The motive was not known, the sheriff’s department said, adding this week that it was “not a hate-related incident.”Jones was arraigned Thursday and pleaded not guilty, according to court records. She is set to return to court on July 26.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
We have previously said that where the conditions of transmission of the infection alters significantly we would alert patients in relative regions. With the prevalence of the virus continuing to increase across England and in places across the world, it’s right that we adjust our advice for the clinically extremely vulnerable accordingly so they can feel as safe as possible over the coming few weeks. Our guidance for this group of individuals has always been advisory, but I would strongly urge all those who are clinically extremely vulnerable to take these extra precautions to keep themselves as safe as possible. Clinically extremely vulnerable people in England have today received further guidance on keeping safe as the country introduces new national restrictions from Thursday, the government has announced.The new advice details further precautions those in this group can take on top of the tougher national measures being introduced, as cases continue to rise across the country. Everyone not considered to be clinically extremely vulnerable will be expected to follow the new restrictions, such as staying at home unless shopping for food or exercising and not meeting up with people outside of the household.The updated guidance, which clinically extremely vulnerable individuals are strongly urged to follow, includes: Those in the following group count as clinically vulnerable: people who have had bone marrow or stem cell transplants in the last 6 months or who are still taking immunosuppression drugs new guidance published today for the clinically extremely vulnerable on keeping safe under new national restrictions which come into force this Thursday group strongly advised to stay at home at all times, unless for exercise or doctors’ appointments range of support available, backed by over £32 million government funding for local councils are 70 or older have a lung condition that’s not severe (such as asthma, COPD, emphysema or bronchitis) have heart disease (such as heart failure) have diabetes have chronic kidney disease have liver disease (such as hepatitis) have a condition affecting the brain or nerves (such as Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy) have a condition that means they have a high risk of getting infections are taking medicine that can affect the immune system (such as low doses of steroids) are very obese (a BMI of 40 or above) are pregnant people with severe respiratory conditions including all cystic fibrosis, severe asthma and severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) people with rare diseases that significantly increase the risk of infections (such as severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), homozygous sickle cell) people on immunosuppression therapies sufficient to significantly increase risk of infectionadults with Down’s syndrome adults on dialysis or with chronic kidney disease (Stage 5) women who are pregnant with significant heart disease, congenital or acquired other people who have also been classed as clinically extremely vulnerable, based on clinical judgement and an assessment of their needs. GPs and hospital clinicians have been provided with guidance to support these decision solid organ transplant recipients people with specific cancers: We now have evidence to suggest that those with chronic kidney disease (stage 5) and those undergoing dialysis, as well as adults with Down’s Syndrome, are at higher risk from COVID-19 than the general population and therefore the Chief Medical Officer has advised they follow the new guidance for the clinically extremely vulnerable. We have asked the NHS to begin the process of identifying and contacting all those affected, providing them with the latest advice. The government will also be providing over £32 million to upper tier councils in England to support the clinically extremely vulnerable over the next month. It will be used to provide support, such as access to food deliveries and signposting to local support of befriending services, to the most at risk and enable them to stay at home as much as possible over this short period.Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, Dr Jenny Harries said: Individuals in this group will also be able to use an online service which will help people to request priority access to supermarket delivery slots and to inform their council they need help. NHS Volunteer Responders can also help with a regular, friendly phone call, and transport to and from medical appointments.The clinically extremely vulnerable group includes those with reduced immune systems, for example due to organ transplants, or those with specific cancers or severe respiratory conditions, such as cystic fibrosis. The group list is updated regularly as patients’ conditions or the scientific evidence changes, so the majority will have received a letter previously from the NHS or their GP advising them of their inclusion.Due to new evidence about groups more likely to be at risk of serious illness from COVID-19, those with chronic kidney disease (stage 5) and those undergoing dialysis, as well as adults with Down’s Syndrome, are also being added to the shielding patient list by the NHS.Those with more general underlying health conditions or who are 70 or over may still be more vulnerable to COVID-19 than the general population, so are also advised to stay at home as much as possible, to carefully follow the rules and minimise contact with others.The new national restrictions will come into force from Thursday and are set to be reviewed on 2 December.Letters will be going out later this week to all those identified as clinically extremely vulnerable, providing them with further detail on the updated guidance and on how to access the support available.Background informationHow to get support if you’re clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.Those with the following conditions fall into the clinically extremely vulnerable group: socialising: stay at home as much as possible, except to go outdoors to exercise or attend health appointments. People can exercise with those they live with or in their support bubble work: if people cannot work from home, they should not attend work. They may be eligible for Statutory Sick Pay, Employment and Support Allowance, Universal Credit or the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme during this period of national measures. People in the same household who are not clinically extremely vulnerable can still attend work, in line with the new national restrictions school: as evidence has shown there is a very low risk of children becoming very unwell from COVID-19, most children originally on the shielded patient list no longer need to be and therefore can still attend school. If they are unsure, parents should contact their child’s usual GP or hospital clinician to check whether they should still be considered clinically extremely vulnerable. If a GP or clinician has advised that a child should remain on the shielded patient list, they are advised not to attend school. Children who live with someone who is clinically extremely vulnerable, but aren’t themselves, should still attend school going outside: avoid all non-essential travel – they should continue to travel to hospital and GP appointments unless told otherwise by their doctor. They are strongly advised not to go to any shops or to pharmacies people with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy people with lung cancer who are undergoing radical radiotherapy people with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who are at any stage of treatment people having immunotherapy or other continuing antibody treatments for cancer people having other targeted cancer treatments that can affect the immune system, such as protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors
National Bakery Training (NBT) is to rebrand to become the National Food & Drink Training, as it plans to expand into other areas of teaching. The organisation, part of Scottish Bakers, will begin working across the wider food and drink sector to deliver training and apprenticeships, effective from April this year.It has spent the past 12 months investing in a new apprenticeship called Food Manufacturing Excellence (FME), which teaches learners about manufacturing techniques.As well as working with bakers, the organisation has already received interest in the qualification from bottled water manufacturer Highland Spring and fish and seafood producer Dawn Fresh.Alan Clarke, chief executive of Scottish Bakers, said: “The new FME apprenticeship gives bakers the opportunity to stand back and look at processes. Our trainers teach new technology, and help learners see how they can improve production processes.“Our trainers themselves are already seeing baking in a new light, and I know it will make people think differently about how they work and use resources.”The school is also developing an online academy, which will supplement learning from the trainers and work alongside the courses.The first module has already been trialled, and 10 more are set to be added to the online zone by the end of the year.Clarke continued: “It’s all about making it easier for people. Books and paper information is of course still available, but this way both young and older people can access learning at the touch of a button via iPads, laptops and iPhones.”Under the rebrand, the classic craft bakery and related bakery qualifications will still be run, alongside the new manufacturing courses.
