This project seemed like an Architect’s dream at first but upon closer understanding, of the site and the brief, revealed its complex nature. The seemingly large plot of 2.45 acres, populated with a variety of trees – small and large, was to be shared between the client and his brother, who had an existing house on site, without any compound wall in between. However, an informal pedestrian path, allowing the plot at the back an access to the main road, literally cut the site into two. Moreover the extending site towards the south, marked aside for the future commercial activity further reduced the buildable site to a linear strip.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe clients, like many, worried about security and privacy, wanted a strong sense of ownership and exclusivity even without building any walls separating neither the pedestrian path nor his brother’s house. Adding to the complexity was their deep desire for an inside-outside feel for ther house, with the inclusion of nature as much as possible.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe result was ‘The Regimented House’. The simple yet formal nature of this built form, with the extended frontyard and backyard demarcated by hard landscape grids established a notion of a boundary, subtle nonetheless potent. Moreover the grid layout was designed to accommodate landscaped courts of various types to ensure the essential blending in with nature as well as soften the otherwise bold presence of the built mass.Save this picture!© Suneesh SureshThe layout consisted of two simple, yet robust, blocks placed one above the other, separated by a large double height landscaped courtyard acting as a buffer between them. A landscaped entry court was added to blur the transition between the verdant landscape and the seemingly rigid building. The ground floor of the primary bay houses the formal and semiformal functions of the house and the secondary bay has the two bedrooms, one ach floor accessed by a staircase. An open dining and a bridge placed in the central court informally connect the two. The layout of the house is designed in such a manner that each room in the house enjoy perfect cross ventilation, making the best of seasonal shifts of winds, keeping the internal temperature at a possible low throughout the year.Save this picture!Site with Ground floor layoutThe large grid like openings puncturing the shell of the building, were strategically screened with perforated corten steel and G.I pipes to facilitate both privacy and ventilation. When lit up at night, the house looks like a lantern glowing in the woods. Internally, all rooms around the central court open into it by means of large sliding doors that ensure an open layout when desired. This possibility of engaging with a fairly large internal landscape, with trees that may grow to touch the ceiling, gives one the feeling of being outdoors with the elements, enjoying each season, each moment.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe material palette and decor of the house was refined towards simple minimalist possibilities in order to enable an unadulterated experience of the volumertic spaces that connect with the landscape. A combination of carefully curated framed black and white abstract naturescape photographs and mirrors extend this experience to a surreal dimension.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasOften, simple designs create warm, everlasting memories. The kids see the house as a large playground enabling them with exciting new experiences each day, and the owners have already slipped into these secure yet comfortable spaces, enjoying the simple pleasure of life.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasProject gallerySee allShow lessTown Hall Eysturkommuna / Henning LarsenSelected ProjectsDL House / DP+HS ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharecenter_img Architects: LIJO RENY architects Year Completion year of this architecture project The Regimented House / LIJO RENY architectsSave this projectSaveThe Regimented House / LIJO RENY architects CopyHouses•India ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Praveen Mohandas+ 50Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Photographs 2017 CopyAbout read more

first_imgBRISBANE: Asad Shafiq scored a thrilling century as Pakistan put up a spirited resistance to Australia on Sunday, frustrating the hosts’ attempts to wrap up the first Test with a day to spare.GARRY SOBERSShafiq dashed for three runs off a cut shot in the final over of the fourth day to reach his 10th Test century off 140 balls in the day-night match at the Gabba.Pakistan’s fight back was mainly led by Asad Shafiq who is unbeaten at 100. This is his overall 10th century and, of all, his 9th while batting at number 6 in a Test, the most in a Test match by a batsman playing at number 6.Asad surpassed great Garry Sobers with century against Australia. The West Indian legend had scored Eight centuries while batting at number 6.Earlier, Starc scattered his stumps with an inswinger in the 88th over, his third wicket, and Jackson Bird had Amir caught behind in the 107th over.Younis Khan had also kept the bowlers at bay but was out to a rash shot 30 minutes before the dinner break.The 112-Test campaigner fell to an ill-judged reverse sweep off spinner Nathan Lyon, the ball ballooning off the back of his bat for Smith to take an easy catch.Misbah was caught behind off Bird for five to complete a low-scoring match after his four in the first innings and Younis followed just 18 minutes later.Starc persisted with a short-pitched plan after a 90-minute storm delay at tea.It finally paid off when Azhar Ali tried to flick a rising ball down to fine leg, only to edge to Matthew Wade.Azhar faced 179 balls for his 71 and put on 91 for the third wicket with Younis.Younis, out for a first-ball duck in the first innings, took 20 balls to get off the mark with a streaky shot through the slips cordon to the boundary.Australia are defending an unbeaten run of 27 Tests at the Gabba. Their last defeat here was in 1988 at the hands of the West Indies.last_img
