Nestled in the back drop of a metropolis, this residence promises an escape from the city life. The plot for this house sits in a densely populated locality. The major concern was finding an intimate space in the crowd and arriving at a visually engaging structure amidst the chaotic background. The client’s brief called for a simple and a spacious Vaastu compliant house for a family of five. Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JAn introverted open plan layout has been adopted to create a seamless flow of spaces and to ensure connectivity across the floors. Designed around two landscaped courtyards, the building program is spread across three floors consisting of a parking area, formal and informal living, an open kitchen and dining, five bedrooms, a study and a semi-open terrace with a kitchenette. Both the courtyards have been strategically designed with skylights to bring in maximum light.  Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JOne is welcomed into the house by a 4” thick Sadahalli stone slab bridging over the Koi fish pond and a series of large granite steps. The traditional concept of load bearing and counter weight system has been used in the screen wall by cantilevering 2″ thick Sadahalli slab, to create a dramatic impact at the entrance. Clear glass has been used in the formal and informal areas to establish a strong relationship with the outside. The central dining space is flanked by courts on both sides creating a tranquil ambiance. Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Mezzanine Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JInspired by the Japanese art form, Origami, the captivating metal staircase in the southern court is cantilevered from a suspended wall unfolding a distinctive experience and a sense of lightness within the house. The northern court anchors the entire built space bringing in abundant natural light, providing a visual connection between the floors and setting a refreshing ambience. Canopied by a temple tree, the artfully designed puja sits as a distinguishing sculpture in this court. A transparent layer of glass introduced to bring in light to the rooms overlooking the courtyard has been furnished with fabric panels that provide flexibility of usage to the inhabitants. All these spaces within the house are wrapped around the courtyards, which symbolizes the ‘exterior’ within this introverted scheme.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSkylights and multiple slits integrated in the design keep the interiors well lit, accentuates the spatial experience and makes certain of a connection with nature that largely lacks in today’s urban world. The interiors are kept simple and have been devised with great attention to detail to blend smoothly with the architectural elements. Natural textures of wood and exposed concrete amidst the subtle elements and neutral colour palettes with accents like olive green, navy blue, crimson red and burnt orange create elegant spaces that exemplify a comprehensively designed urban home. Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Section 02Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe exterior surfaces are a blend of clean white walls juxtaposed against timber and glass. A series of staggered slits have been deliberately positioned at unconventional heights throughout the building to allow light and maximum views of the outside without compromising on privacy. The striking inclined wall introduced at the front elevates the overall massing and adds a sense of dynamism to the building. Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe house is a display of intertwined indoor and outdoor spaces designed to filter in ample natural light and ventilation while ensuring a comfortable living environment. It adheres to the site conditions and has a strong element of individuality that enhances the quality of living through well stitched spaces, materials, techniques, craftsmanship and infuses the interiors with personalized detailing to create profound experiences. The slits and openings in the building have been designed to create an illusion of levitating masses, hence the name – Floating Walls.  Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JProject gallerySee allShow lessCarlton Apartment / Tom Eckersley ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPavillon A / Maurice Martel ArchitecteSelected Projects Share “COPY” India Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil J+ 36Curated by Hana Abdel Share Photographs 2019 “COPY” Landscape: Crest Architects Manufacturers: AutoDesk, D’Décor, Grohe, Kohler, NATUZZI, Saint-Gobain, Toto, Adobe, Kosh Studio, Script, Wurfel Floating Walls House / Crest Architects Year:  Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945756/floating-walls-house-crest-architects Clipboard Architects: Crest Architects Area Area of this architecture project Area:  4266 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Chasing the monsoon

Apart from hotels, people are also diving head-first by hosting parties in their private pools. Prashant Sharma of Focus Big, which organises these parties in Chandigarh, Ludhiana and parts of Haryana, says, “We never anticipated such a phenomenal response when we started out. Not just teenagers, but people of all age groups are turning up for such parties.” And you’d think the number of pool parties would dip during the monsoon season, but Sharma says the crowd always swells at such parties whenever it rains.Monsoon Perks Many resorts and hotels tend to drop the cover charges during the rainy season. Do check the rates before planning the party. Don’t Miss Pick up quirky swimsuits from Chandigarh’s Sector 19 market or United Sports in Sector 22.

Thanks to the humidity, the body becomes more flexible,” says Puneet Jewandah, director of Chandigarh-based The Engine Room. The 26-year-old graduate of New York Broadway Dance Centre says each year witnesses a phenomenal footfall during the rainy season. “There is no better indoor fitness activity. Moreover, people have just come back from their holidays and want to shed that extra fat,” she says. Jewandah will hold several special monsoon workshops in the coming months, including those concentrating on ballroom dancing.advertisementMonsoon Perks The body becomes more flexible due to the high humidity content in the air during the rainy season.

Also, we will be organising a road trip to Thirthan Valley in Kullu,” she says. The 38-year-old adds, “This is also the off-season, therefore the crowds are less and you have the entire place to yourself.” For those of you not interested in driving away, there are ample trekking opportunities thanks to the close proximity to the hills. Just on the outskirts of Chandigarh, completely removed from the concrete of the city, is the Nepli and Kansal forest, which witnesses the butterfly mating season during the monsoons.

Rajnish Katyal, a former photo editor with a national newspaper and director of Chandigarh-based photography school, Shutterbug, says he gets a lot of enquiries during this time of the year. “There is not much one can do during rains when it comes to outdoor activities. Photography becomes a favoured choice with those interested in the medium,” says the 44-year-old. Katyal says with the increase in people’s purchasing power and multiple DSLR options available in the market, learning photography has suddenly become the in thing. “The lovely weather only adds to the charm. I have finally ceded to my students’ demand of taking them out to the hills for assignments,” he adds. However, these courses aren’t just limited to amateurs. Katyal says this is also the perfect time for professionals to enrol in his advanced courses.He elaborates, “Many professionals lessen their outdoor assignments during this time of the year. It is during these months they come to me to acquaint themselves with the finer nuances of the art.” Monsoon Perks These classes are a perfect excuse to explore nearby areas.

World Cup 2019: Favourites tag won’t win India or England the crown, says Shakib

first_imgHosts England and team India have been touted as favorites to go the distance in the 2019 edition of the World Cup in England and Wales. But Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is keen to remind all that cricket is a game that is played on the field and not on paper.Speaking to IANS, Shakib said that while there is no doubt that Eoin Morgan and Virat Kohli’s men are ruling world cricket at the moment in the 50-over format, the favorites tag alone doesn’t win any team the coveted title in the 50-over World Cup.”India and England are obviously favorites, but that doesn’t get you the crown. You need to do the hard yards to win a tournament like the World Cup. Australia has been doing well recently and West Indies have peaked at the right time. To be honest, all the teams look like they are ready for a fight. Depends who on that day does well,” he pointed.Personally, Shakib got the perfect boost going into the showpiece event as he overtook Afghanistan star Rashid Khan as the no.1 all-rounder in ODIs. But for the star Bangladesh player, he wants the trophy that ultimately decides who the boss is.”This time I think we have a genuine chance of winning the tournament, but keeping the format of the tournament in mind, we must look to play well consistently. If we can do that, we can definitely look at qualifying for the knockouts and take it forward from there. I am confident that we will do well this time.advertisement”Personally, obviously I wish that Bangladesh win the trophy this time. But a lot of factors need to click together for that dream to be realized. While I didn’t play much in the IPL, I had been working hard on my game and was looking to prepare for the World Cup. Gave it my all in the practice sessions and tried to maximize the output in every training session,” he explained.While Bangladesh has in the last few years made a name for themselves in the big league by putting in far more consistent performances than before, but Shakib is still a bit worried about the team’s bowling attack. The all-rounder though feels that the experience in the side will come to the rescue in crunch games.”I think we have a very good side, I am a little worried about the bowling, both new ball and the death. But I am very much optimistic that we can go the whole length. We have the experience, have guys who have played 3 or 4 World Cups. It is a good thing as we know what we need to do. Need to get the momentum early on. I am confident. Anyone can beat anyone on their day. Consistency is an important factor to go all the way,” he revealed.With the advent of the various T20 leagues, Bangladesh players are now getting an opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the best players in the world. In fact, they also have their own T20 league and Shakib feels this has helped in getting quality players to play for the country as talent can be identified better now thanks to so many platforms.”I feel playing in the T20 leagues around the world has really helped our boys in recent times as you gain in experience. Apart from building your own game, you also get to see other stars closely and try and learn from them as well. It has helped us become more competitive as a unit,” he smiled.Also Read | Made sure I trained well after IPL: Vijay Shankar before departing for World Cup 2019Also Read | Virat Kohli’s Team India reaches England for World Cup 2019Also Seelast_img read more

Tall Players Like Joel Embiid Are More Prone to Injury

This was never supposed to be Joel Embiid’s draft. College stars Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins were expected to be the frontrunners for 2014. But as the NCAA season began, Embiid, a center for Kansas, amazed, prompting his coach to compare him to Hakeem Olajuwon. He was ascendant — the kind of guy an NBA team tanks for.Then came the injuries. Embiid sprained his left knee early in the season and suffered a bone contusion, missing only one game. Later, right before the Big 12 tournament, doctors diagnosed him with a spondylolysis, a stress fracture in his lower back. The injury forced him out of the NCAA tournament but not out of the NBA draft. Many draft boards had him going first, convinced that teams would see the potential beyond the injuries.But last week Embiid had surgery to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his foot. He’s reported to be out four to six months, and with the draft on Thursday there’s no telling where he’ll fall. USA Today now projects that Embiid will be the third pick and an NBA.com consensus mock draft projects him at fifth.Teams may be right to show concern about Embiid’s injuries, in part because of his height. Embiid is listed as 7’ tall by ESPN. Examining recent high draft picks reveals that taller players have gone on to miss a larger percentage of games than their shorter peers. Since 2000, 97 players 6’9” and taller have been drafted by teams with lottery selections (the first 13 or 14 picks in the draft, depending on the year). These players missed 17.9 percent of their potential NBA games (regular season and postseason, where appropriate) to injury over the course of their careers, while the 95 players 6’8” or shorter missed just 13.5 percent. The percentage of games missed generally increases as height increases. Players 7’0” or taller have missed nearly 24 percent of their games.That doesn’t factor in Embiid’s specific injuries. The navicular bone injury is the most troubling. The navicular is one of the tarsal bones located in the mid-foot, and an injury to the area is significant. In Embiid’s case, it required surgical intervention.Other players have had navicular fractures (it was the only injury to sideline Michael Jordan for an extended period of time in Chicago), but it’s been fairly uncommon the last few years. I keep a database of every injury in the NBA for any player who’s played since 2009, including each player’s entire injury history, even if the injury took place before 2009. Only seven affected NBA players out of a possible 900+ in my data set had a navicular fracture.Perimeter players including Jordan and Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin both fared well following navicular fractures. But unfortunately for Embiid, the precedent set by big men to suffer the injury doesn’t inspire much confidence. In three of the seven navicular cases (including for perimeter and post players), the fracture reoccurred or additional surgery was needed. All three players (Curtis Borchardt, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Yao Ming) stood 7 feet or taller. There’s another seven-footer, too, whose prognosis we’re not sure of yet: Brendan Haywood suffered a navicular fracture in October 2013 and didn’t play a minute this year for Charlotte. We’ll have to wait to see how his foot holds up.Small sample size, of course, but it begins to tell us what teams might be able to expect from Embiid. And there are always outliers. The careers of Kevin McHale (who played too long ago to be included in my database) and Ilgauskas provide some optimism. McHale bounced back following his injury in the 1987 postseason and played seven more seasons, including four at an All-Star level. Ilgauskas also went on to have a productive career.Then again, that only happened after his third foot surgery, a procedure that involved reshaping multiple bones in his foot. read more

Next 3 games pose no easy task for undefeated Buckeyes

The Ohio State men’s basketball team has managed to remain unbeaten through its first 24 games this season. But maintaining an unblemished record through their remaining seven games might prove to be a more difficult task for the Buckeyes. OSU picked up a road win at Minnesota — a place where no current Buckeye, except fifth-year senior forward David Lighty, had won in his career — on Sunday. Now the team will travel to a place where no Buckeye, including Lighty, has won: Madison, Wis. Following their matchup with No. 13-ranked Wisconsin, the Buckeyes will return to Columbus for their lone matchup of the season with Michigan State. After starting off as the No. 2 team in the nation, the Spartans are in the midst of a disappointing season, having fallen out of both The Associated Press‘ Top 25 and ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ polls. Still, MSU, which appeared in the past two Final Fours, remains a threat to the Buckeyes’ undefeated record. The Spartans tout an experienced roster, led by the 2009 Big Ten Player of the Year Kalin Lucas, who leads the team in scoring with 15.8 points per game. MSU also has players with size — 6-foot-7, 230-pound Draymond Green and 6-foot-9, 270-pound Derrick Nix — who could present matchup issues for OSU freshman forward Jared Sullinger, named Monday the conference’s Freshman Player of the Week for the 11th time this season. Michigan coach John Beilein, who has faced both the Spartans and the Buckeyes this season, said he’s been impressed with the Buckeyes, but thinks they’re susceptible to losing a game. “Anyone can get you anytime. It’s never been easy, but home or away, you are in for a battle,” Beilein said. “Ohio State is really good. There is a reason why they are undefeated.” After their matchup with the Spartans, the Buckeyes will travel to West Lafayette, Ind., to face No. 14 Purdue. The Buckeyes dominated the Boilermakers, 87-64, during their first matchup this season, Jan. 25 in Columbus. Playing the Boilermakers on the road, however, could yield a different result, as OSU will again face the Big Ten’s leading scorer and shot blocker, Purdue senior forward JaJuan Johnson. Johnson scored 22 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked two shots in Purdue’s first matchup with the Buckeyes. “JaJuan Johnson, I don’t know if I could say enough about him,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after the Buckeyes’ first game against Purdue. “You watch him make those shots on film and you say, ‘He’ll never do that against us,’ and sure enough, he did.” With the difficult challenges that lie ahead in OSU’s next three games, Matta is aware that on any given night his team’s winning streak could come to an end. “These guys are smart enough to know that if we don’t come to play, if we’re not tuned in to what we need to do, we’ll lose,” Matta said. “It’s probably as simple as that.” read more

Allardyce insisted that he has fans support

Dimarco Scoring against Inter was destiny

first_imgParma defender Federico Dimarco reflects on scoring the only goal of the game as they beat Inter Milan at San Siro.Federico Dimarco came through the Inter academy and they still have an option to buy him. He was the hero on Saturday as he scored the only goal in a shock 1-0 victory for Parma at Inter Milan.Despite Inter dominating majority of the game, it was Dimarco who in the 79th minute scored a stunner to decide the game.“I think we deserved the victory because we fought hard as a group to the bitter end,” he told Sky Sports Italia.Rick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.Reporters were quick to compare his goal that of Roberto Carlos.“Let’s lot exaggerate with comparisons. I scored a goal and I’m happy. I dedicate this goal to my daughter, who will be born in a month.” Dimarco said.“I anticipated Matteo Politano and then saw a gap, so I hit it. It went well. I am a little sad that I scored it against Inter because I am an Interista at heart, but it’s an important goal for the present and the future.”last_img read more
