LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. This new house is located within a mature landscape setting in the inner South of Canberra. The suburb of Narrabundah in this location is characterised by subtle topographical change, heavy tree canopies, and distant landscape views. The house comprises 4 bedrooms, kitchen/dining/living space, office, wet areas, guest quarters, gym, and theatre room. The internal planning responds to sun access and elevated long-distance views to the east.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe cross-section takes advantage of the slope on the block by providing ground-level access from the street, and opportunities for elevated balconies and walkways on the eastern and southern sides (where distant views become apparent). Two light courts are recessed into the floor plan to improve access to natural sunlight.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe first court is recessed between the northern living space and kitchen and will allow winter sun to enter the kitchen and dining space. This courtyard also provides a comfortably scaled, private outdoor seating area. The second court is 2 storeys tall and runs beside the main interior stair connecting the two levels of the house. This court provides light to the stair, upper floor ensuite, and basement level guest room and study. In addition to access to sunlight, the courts provide important organisational gestures that give legibility to the interior and spatial separation between public and private zones.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!© Ben GuthrieGlazing all round the courts provides a permeable view corridor from room to room when desired. The house was constructed using precast concrete panels as the primary structural devices. The panels were installed on site in the early phases of the build and were gradually “filled in” with wall and floor finishes, joinery, and other fittings and fixtures. The carefully crafted steel elements (balustrades, louvres, balcony columns), exterior brickwork, timber lining boards, and landscaping descaled the concrete and provided important textural qualities.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieSave this picture!© Ben GuthrieA visual softening of the early concrete structure gradually occurred as these elements were added. The interiors of the house have been carefully considered in terms of both their material attributes and planning impact. A continuous entry gallery is only lightly demarcated by mid-height joinery on one side. This approach allows reflected light to filter between the top of joinery elements and the ceiling which increases the perceptible sense of space and volume. Simple planning has placed public zones on the eastern side of the gallery, and private rooms on the other.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieEntries to private rooms are tucked behind wide openings in the gallery brickwork. Dark brick, recycled timber, dark joinery and brass are the primary finishes within the interiors. These materials have been used to create a rich internal living environment that belies the robustness of the exterior. The tactile quality of the brickwork is ever-present as you move through the house.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe majority of the timber ceilings have been crafted from re-milled hardwood salvaged from the original house on the block. The interior masonry provides excellent isolated thermal mass to passively regulate both summer and winter temperatures. The recessed courtyards give an opportunity to capture breezes and “eddys” which can be distributed through operable doors to ventilate the house during summer. The courtyards also play an important role in capturing winter sun into living rooms to passively heat the house during cold winter months.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieExternal louvres on the eastern balcony allow the occupants to control the amount of morning sun entering the building at different times of the year. This home provides a highly flexible living environment that is rich in its material and tactile qualities, is robust and maintenance-free, takes advantage of its elevated landscape setting, and will provide a long-term base for a growing family.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieProject gallerySee allShow lessApartment House in Sakurashinmachi / abanbaSelected ProjectsFH Office / TA-CHA DesignSelected Projects Share Australia 2020 CopyAbout this officeBen Walker ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookNarrabundahAustraliaPublished on March 03, 2021Cite: “Narrabundah House / bwa” 02 Mar 2021.

to go further RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan May 3, 2021 Find out more Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Reporters Without Borders regards as baseless and unacceptable a claim by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid that Hervé Ghesquière and Stéphane Taponier, two French TV journalists who have been held hostage for the past year in northwestern Afghanistan, were “engaged in gathering information that has the nature of intelligence gathering.”“These grave accusations are a lie,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “These two experienced France 3 journalists were doing their work as TV reporters when they were kidnapped. Identifying ‘reporting’ as ‘intelligence gathering’ is outrageous and constitutes a dangerous smear for all journalists working in sensitive areas.” Reporters Without Borders continues to campaign for the release of Ghesquière and Taponier and their three Afghan assistants, who were kidnapped with them, and reaffirms its support for their families.Mujahid’s statement, made on 1 January, is also worrying inasmuch as it increases tension between the government and Taliban and contrasts with the reassuring comments that the French authorities have been making. The journalists’ families and the journalistic community in France should be briefed about the progress of negotiations with their kidnappers.Calls for the release of the foreign and Afghan journalists held hostage in Afghanistan have been made repeatedly during the past year by Afghan journalists’ organizations and unions, senate president Sibghatullah Mojaddedi (who also heads the National Commission for Peace in Afghanistan), information and culture minister Makhdom Raheen and Council of Ulemas spokesman Fazel Ahamad Manawi.Rahimullah Samander, the head of the Afghan Independent Journalists Association, urged the Taliban on 27 December to “respect journalists’ independence” and to immediately release “the two French journalists and their three Afghan assistants.”Ghesquière and Taponier and their three Afghan assistants were kidnapped in the northwestern province of Kapisa on 29 December 2009. This is the longest that any French journalists have been held hostage since the late 1980s.

While disposing off the petition, the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad imposed costs running into ₹20,000. The same shall be deposited to the Delhi High Court Bar Association Lawyers’ Security and Welfare Fund. While noting that lockdown had caused more human suffering that the COVID19 itself, the court observed that: ‘the lockdown has resulted in loss of jobs for several lakhs of people. Scores of people were forced to walk considerable distance during the lockdown and stand in long queues at Food distribution centers just to have two square meals a day. Several have gone hungry and were not able to get one meal. Many were left shelterless. Several lakhs of migrant labour had to walk on foot and go back to their native places.’ The court also highlighted that economic situation of the country has taken a terrible hit due to the lockdown. The court further highlighted that the government passed Unlock 1.0 to ensure a proper balance between containing the spread of COVID-19 pandemic and at the same time make certain that people are not forced to starvation. Filed by Mr Arjun Agarwal, the petition had challenged the June 30 order of the Ministry of Home Affairs wherein, on the advisory of National Disaster Management Authority, Centre had extended the lockdown in the Containment Zones till 30.06.2020 and issued directive for re–opening of the prohibited activities in the areas outside the Containment Zones. By the said order, the Petitioner argued, MHA has casted the unconventional and unworkable obligation upon the citizens to ensure safety at large of the society and protection from the current global predicament at hand. It was further argued that by the said order, the government has shrugged off its responsibility to protect the Right to Health and other fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution. The Petitioner also submitted that the MHA has failed in facilitating with any specific mechanism in which the current guidelines can be achieved, as the given infrastructure of our country and the manifest violations by the individuals of the previous notifications/ orders/ guidelines issued by the authorities. Therefore, the Petitioner had argued that: ‘The impugned order is manifestly illegal, unconstitutional, perverse and is issued without considering the welfare and civil rights of the citizens at large; and also in abrogation of the obligations of the State as well recognised in Public International Law.’ While disposing of the petition, the court said: ‘Courts do not and cannot act as an appellate authority examining the correctness, suitability and appropriateness of the policy; nor are courts advisors to the executive in matters of policy which the executive is entitled to formulate. Courts cannot interfere with the policy either on the ground that it is erroneous or on the ground that a better or a wiser alternative is available.’Click Here Download Order[Read Order]Next Story

Government of Kerala and Corporation of Kochi, respondents 3 and 4 respectively, are bound to provide sufficient funds, to ensure widening of the Salim Ali road, lay slabs on the drain, for shifting of the compound, and for all other incidental activities. A revised estimate be prepared by the District Collector, Ernakulam, within two months from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment”, the High Court ordered while disposing of a Public Interest Litigation filed by Advocate Suman Chakravarthy in 2015.The Court directed that lease rent should be finalised between the parties, at the earliest, and there shall be no delay.Railways, Corporation of Cochin and Government of Kerala, in co-ordination with each other, should conclude the process of widening of the Salim Ali road, initiated in the year 2002. There Court gave a further direction to the State of Kerala and Corporation of Kochi to provide adequate funds to pay the lease charges to the Railway, on surrendering their land having an extent of 466.2 SQM on the northern boundary of the existing Salim Ali Road and to implement the road widening scheme, proposed by the Registrar of the High Court of Kerala.”The 3rd respondent, State of Kerala, represented by its Secretary, shall take appropriate steps to acquire enough and sufficient land from the property now in possession of the Railway, in the northern side of the High Court premises, comprised in Sy. Nos.2495 and 2496 of Ernakulam Village of Kanayannur Taluk, for the development and improvement of infrastructure of the High Court of Kerala, which includes its parking area. Such exercise, shall be completed within a period of three months from the date of receipt of the revised estimate”, the Court further directed.While passing the directions, the High Court relied on the observations made by the Supreme Court in the case All India Judges Association and Others v. Union of India and Others (2018) 17 SCC 555 that a duty is cast upon the State to provide adequate car-parking space in Courts for ease of access to justice.”In the light of the above decision, a duty is cast upon the State of Kerala, represented by its Secretary, Department of Home; and Corporation of Kochi, respondent Nos.3 and 4 respectively, to provide adequate space, for parking the vehicles”, the High Court observed.The Division Bench observed that the material on record disclosed that right from the year 2002 onwards, High Court of Kerala, having felt the dire need of providing sufficient space for parking vehicles, inconvenience caused to the litigants, lawyers, their clerks, and other stakeholders, has been repeatedly addressing various authorities.Court rejects objections raised on the ground of environmental protectionA lawyers’ environmental protection body called the Lawyers Environment Awareness Forum(LEAF) intervened in the petition to object the proposal to develop car parking area on the ground that the same will affect the Mangalavanam Bird Sanctuary situated near to the proposed site.The intervenor pointed out that the Ministry of Environment and Forests has issued a draft notification in 2017 proposing to notify Mangalavanam Bird Sanctuary as an Eco Sensitive Zone. It was argued that construction activities are prohibited in the vicinity of Eco Sensitive Zones.However, the Court noted that the draft notification has not been finalized yet, and therefore the same has not statutory force.Unless a statutory notification is issued under sub-rule 3(d) of Rule 5 of the Environment (Protection) Rules, 1986, a draft notification cannot be acted upon, the Court said.Even otherwise, there was nothing on record to show that the road-widening proposal will jeopardize the environemnt.”Even taking it for granted that there is a draft notification, there is nothing on record to indicate that the widening of Salim Ali road would jeopardize the environment. As stated supra, widening of the road, even as per the draft notification is permissible, but the same in our view can be done, with the monitoring of Wildlife Warden, Forest Department, Chief Conservator of Forest (Custodian of Ecologically Fragile Land) and the State Government”, the Court observed.

The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice M. M. Sundresh also observed, “It is open to the petitioner to switch off the television and get some other form of entertainment during the period the Sanskrit news is read.” The Bench also noted that the Doordharsan channel has limited viewership and that the news read in Sanskrit hardly takes up a fraction of the entire day. The Petitioner S. Muthukumar sought a writ of mandamus forbearing the respondents 1 to 4 from telecasting Sanskrit news in Doordarshan Podhigai Tamil Television Channel. [Respondents 1 to 4 were Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, The Chairman Prasar Bharati, The Director-General, Doordarshan and The Director, Doordarshan Kendra] Further, a direction was sought to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to allot funds equally for the development of all languages found in the eighth schedule of Constitution of India by considering the petitioner’s email representation dated 16th December 2020 in accordance with the law. To this, the Court said, “There are matters of greater social concern, which need to be addressed and such petty issues need not be looked into by the Court.” The Court also said, “When the writ petitioner does not find the Sanskrit seems to be tasteful or useful, there is no compulsion for the petitioner to tune in” The Court also hoped that the petitioner keeps up his public spirit and brings matters involving public interest to Court. Lastly, the writ petition was disposed of with liberty to the petitioner to make an appropriate representation to such authorities that may receive it and consequently, connected miscellaneous petition was closed.
