Designed as a relaxation space and spatially planned as an outhouse that is architecturally unique and different from any other structure of the city, the inspiration of this home is from the tropical houses of Singapore. Designed with a tropical concept, therefore, the house is the result of the client’s brief with a similar approach adopted for the interiors too. A clean and simplistic plan determines the spatial planning of this oasis within a huge landscaped area with lush greenery A House in the Garden, the lower floor accommodates living areas and rooms for servants while the first floor accommodates a swimming pool, a baby pool, and a formal living / dining space and kitchen.Save this picture!© PhotographixEach of the living areas opens up to the pool and the greens outside by means of decks and verandahs, creating a spatial hierarchy of open, semi-open and covered spaces. The swimming pool, being on the first floor keeps the overall sense of privacy- deemed crucial in the Indian culture intact. Upon reaching the second floor, all bedrooms are located here, each with its own private balcony that optimizes the surrounding views while creating private, semi-open spaces. All open and covered spaces are reminiscent of the tropical openness and open themselves up to optimize the naturesque surroundings.Save this picture!Higher Ground Floor Plan A multi-triangular roof anchors the project, giving it a unique identity and become symbolic of its tropical intent. While the implementation of the roof was a challenge, through specific marking of the center points of each roof, this unique structure has been achieved to perfection. Other challenges of execution such as a high water level in the footing and the location of the swimming pool, etc, were all overcome through stringent construction processes. The weight of the entire first floor was carefully calculated and implemented thereafter. Weight, leakage, and privacy were the three issues to be taken care of during swimming pool design and implementation. Save this picture!© PhotographixThe interiors adopt the same tropical approach, improvised in an Indian context. Indian Black Marble with different finishes, i.e., Riverwash, Sandblast, and Leather wash is used for the external facade to diversify its aesthetics. Mild Steel, a commonly used construction material is used in the cladding of the columns, which is not a common adaption of the material. The fins surrounding the entire structure are made of rusted iron, in order to endow it with a rustic look and augment the earthy aesthetics.Save this picture!© PhotographixProject gallerySee allShow lessEeStairs Headquarters / Bronsvoort Blaak ArchitectenSelected ProjectsLEEGE Office / RAMOPRIMOSelected Projects Share Year:  Gable House / B.DESIGN24 STUDIOSave this projectSaveGable House / B.DESIGN24 STUDIO Architects: B.DESIGN24 STUDIO Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Photographix+ 29Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Angle Consultancy Manufacturers: Kohler, Leela Laxmi, Luxury living, Ramanand nissad, Zoomer house ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard India “COPY” Photographs Projects CopyAbout this officeB.DESIGN24 STUDIOOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSuratIndiaPublished on August 18, 2018Cite: “Gable House / B.DESIGN24 STUDIO” 17 Aug 2018.

Michigan man finds $43,000 in couch he bought for $35

first_imgPineapple Studio/iStock(NEW YORK) —  A Michigan man made a shocking discovery inside a couch he purchased from a thrift store for just $35: an extra $43,000.Howard Kirby purchased a couch from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Owosso only to discover it came with the wad of cash inside one of the cushions, the store manager told ABC News on Saturday.Kirby decided to return the money to the couch’s owner.“He could use it. … He has needs, but he said he just felt this prompting from God that said, ‘This isn’t yours,’” store manager Rick Merlang said. Kirby met with the couch’s original owners on Thursday to return the money. The store had called the family to say that Kirby found something “they’re gonna want back.”“It was very, very shocking to them,” Merlang said.The couch belonged to the grandfather of the family, who died about a year ago, according to Merlang. The family called the thrift store to ask them to pick the couch up and left their contact information.“I think they were hoping there might be some pictures. They would have never dreamed that it was money,” he said.While Merlang said the store often hears from people who discover items left behind, Kirby, who could not be reached by ABC News, was the first to actually return something.“He’s happy that he’s got a couch,” Merlang said. “Someone said, ‘Are you gonna give the cushion back?’ And he said, ‘No, that’s a $43,000 cushion.’”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Sergio Aguero may return to action against Stoke

first_imgSergio Aguero will resume training with Manchester City’s first-team squad on Friday and could be involved against Stoke City the following day.The 24-year-old Argentina striker has been out since injuring his knee in City’s opening game of the season.“We will try this morning with Sergio,” Mancini said. “And after we try we will decide. He is getting better.”When asked if he could be involved at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, the Italian added: “Maybe.”Continue reading the main story“Today is the first training that we have together after the international break. I am sure some of the players are tired. But we do not have time to recover”Roberto ManciniFellow forward Mario Balotelli has been cleared to play against Stoke if needed after undergoing laser eye surgery during the international break.The Italian had had difficulty wearing his contact lenses after being affected by conjunctivitis.Mancini said: “Mario is OK. Mario now sees everything.”England midfielder Gareth Barry is close to returning after overcoming the abdominal problem that kept him out of Euro 2012 but defender Micah Richards remains sidelined with an ankle injury.“Gareth hasn’t played any games for almost four months and he needs to build his fitness up,” said Mancini. “But he is training again and I don’t see him being out for any longer than one month and, hopefully, maybe just a couple of weeks.“Micah’s injury is more serious and he could be out a little longer, but having said that, with rest and the right treatment, we are hopeful he could be ready in about one month.”Mancini reported no new injury problems with players returning to the club from international duty, including three of the club’s transfer deadline day signings – defender’s Maicon and Matija Nastasic and midfielder Javi Garcia. Those three, along with winger Scott Sinclair are in competition to make their debut for the club on Saturday.“We don’t have any players with injuries they are all OK,” said Mancini. “Garcia is OK, Maicon the same. Nastasic was here yesterday for the firstsession but they are OK.“Today is the first training that we have together after the international break. I want to wait until after this training session and then decide because we have a lot of players who have arrived from the other side of the world.“I am sure some of the players are tired. But we do not have time to recover.”Last month, Mancini was angered by Argentina’s decision to call up Aguero to their squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru despite his injury, calling the move “ridiculous”.Aguero, who was carried off on a stretcher following a challenge with Nathaniel Clyne in the 3-2 win over Southampton on 19 August, did not feature in either the 3-1 home win over Paraguay on 7 September or the 1-1 draw in Peru four days later.The Argentine has become a key player for City, scoring 23 league goals in his debut season following last summer’s £38m move from Atletico Madrid, including the goal that gave them a 3-2 victory over QPR on the final day to secure the title.last_img read more
