The existing home had extremely poor orientation, ventilation and connection to its surroundings. The resolution of these qualities in the extension was to embrace the northern aspect to the rear of the block privileging light, ventilation and the blurred delineation of interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Michael EvansIt was imperative to currently improve the living quality for the young family but also plan for flexibility to adapt the space to suit the family’s needs well into the future. A significant request by the clients was to handle the transition of new to old with a considered contrast whilst settling the building into its neighbourhood context.Save this picture!© Michael EvansThe aspiration was to create a graphic form that was in opposition to the existing house. The corner block provided an opportunity to handle this tension by having the new edition visible only from the side street whilst the existing frontage remains intact with its existing streetscape.Materiality is utilised to express the graphic nature of the block forms that configure the rear elevation. A combination of cedar boards, brickwork, aluminium window frames and linear steel screens create the definition of the different forms.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSpatial qualitiesPrivate areas connect to the central corridor in the existing house then transition into the open communal living area  to promote family interaction and relaxation. This feeling is created through the open plan light filled space that has a seamless shift from interior to exterior & allows the backyard to become an extension of the living room and kitchen areas. The abundance of natural light and outlook evokes feelings of refuge and prospect that are undeniably relaxing.Save this picture!© Michael EvansThe layout of the plan was carefully considered to create a comfortable flexible living arrangement for the family. The issue of addressing the poor orientation and lack of light in the existing property was handled by opening up the back living areas with extensive glazing that admits light, excellent ventilation and provides a connection to the garden.The considered transition between existing and proposed is helped by a small courtyard that provides an abundance of natural light that floods into the existing, once internal living room.Save this picture!© Michael EvansSite and contextThe untouched front elevation remains nestled amongst existing homes that were predominantly built in the early 19th century. The extension takes advantage of the inner suburban corner site and offered the opportunity to engage with two distinct streetscapes. The continuation of the wooden wall cladding on the rear façade onto the outdoor deck settles the building into its surrounds along with the contrast of the weight of the brick volume that rests upon the softer landscaping.Save this picture!© Michael EvansCollaboratorsThe collaboration between the architect, interior designer, builder and the landscape architect has contributed to the realisation of the client’s desired outcome. The landscaping of the backyard was integral to settle the building into its context and to maintain the connection between the living areas and the garden. Save this picture!© Michael EvansCost and valueThe simple construction methods minimised cost so that we could prioritise the expression of materials and finishes. The lightweight construction utilised for upstairs and the use of standard sized windows helped contribute to that cost minimisation.Save this picture!© Michael EvansSustainabilityThe importance of environmental sustainability was addressed through all our major design decisions. The existing living room had little natural ventilation directly into the room and views only through the kitchen and dining room; it was a dark room which required artificial lighting for the entire day. The insertion of the north facing light court opened the living room up into a bright and ventilated recreational area – operable and full length glazing to the light court provide an abundance of fresh air and daylight. The other living spaces also benefit from multiple access points to the private open space which will be connected by external decking, allowing for cross flow ventilation to the entire ground floor. The upper level master suite also has opportunities for cross flow ventilation with the added benefit of high level north facing windows for excellent solar penetration. The majority of the extension is clad with sustainably sourced Western Red Cedar.  The material produces fewer greenhouse gases, generates less water and air pollution, requires less energy to produce than alternatives and comes from a renewable plantation.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse for 60 Friends / Martin HurtadoSelected ProjectsEmerging Practices in India: Abin Design StudioInterviews Sharelast_img read more

They submitted that their bid otherwise satisfied the eligibility criteria under the relevant guidelines and that the disqualification was done without any prior hearing.During the pendency of the writ petition, the KSTP awarded the bid to another party.The Court noted that the exclusion of the JV from the bid amounted to blacklisting. This was on the basis of the description given to “blacklisting” by the SC that it was the the decision of the State or its instrumentalities to not to deal with a person or entity on account of the undesirability of entering into the contractual relationship with such person or entity is called blacklisting(Patel Engineering Limited v. Union of India and others, (2012) 11 SCC 257)Since the blacklisting was done without prior notice, it was held to be arbitrary and unconstitutional.”…neither the Joint Venture of the petitioner nor M/s. RDS project Ltd has been given an opportunity to represent their case before they are put on blacklist. As found earlier, they are blacklisted solely on the premise that a case has been registered against the Managing Director of M/s. RDS Project Ltd with the necessary allegations falling under Section 13(1)(d) read with Section 13(2) of the Prevention Of Corruption Act and also under Section 120B of the Indian Penal Code. In the light of the decisions of the Apex Court in Erusian Equipment & Chemicals Limited v. State of West Bengal, (1975) 1 SCC 70, Patel Engineering Ltd. and Gorkha Security Services v.Government (NCT of Delhi), (2014) 9 SCC 105, the decision to exclude the Joint Venture of the petitioner shall be held to be arbitrary and violative of all principles of natural justice and Article 14 of the Constitution”.The court also held the “post-tender negotiations” with another bidder, who was eventually awarded the contract, to be improper and contrary to norms. Therefore, that decision of KSTP to award the work to another bidder was quashed. As per the relevant norms and guidelines, the only option left for KSTP after disqualification of the eligible bid of the JV was to re-tender the whole process.The Court directed the the State Government to complete the proceedings contemplated for blacklisting M/s RDS Project Ltd., after giving them notice indicating the grounds on which they are proposed to be blacklisted from undertaking Government works.Senior Advocate Joseph Kodianthara appeared for RDS Projects Ltd, and Advocate Santhosh Mathew appeared for Cherian Varkey Constructions Ltd.Click here to download judgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Introduced plants in Antarctica: Potential impacts and conservation issues

first_imgThe development of and compliance with the code of conduct embodied in the Antarctic Treaty to prevent or minimize the introduction of plants into the Antarctic is outlined. A chronological account of all known experimental and accidental introductions of higher plants in the field and their success and fate, if known, is given. The potential danger to the natural Antarctic ecosystem of importing plants rooted in their original soil is discussed with particular regard to the introduction of microorganisms, invertebrates and viable plant propagules. Unintentional dispersal of non-indigenous biota by human activities, and dispersal by natural agents (wind, birds) into and within the Antarctic, is assessed and numerous examples which contravened the measures of the Antarctic Treaty for the control of introduced biota are noted. The need for strict observance of the new Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty is emphasized.last_img read more
