Elegantly placed on a bush hammered granite is a slightly tilted yellow white Frangipani tree which welcomes the visitors with its intoxicating fragrance and beautiful flowers . I tried to tell the stories about the relationship of the indoors to the outdoors , of the body with nature and that of our traditional connection with the roots of interlayered aesthetic history with transparent and rhythmical legibility through the contemporary interpretation of architecture. It is a transformation project of  my house that was built 14 years ago perched at the foothills of the commercial capital of Goa,  Margao.Save this picture!© Prashant BhattWe like to entertain a lot of people in the house, so one major brief was to modify the layout of the house in such a way that it keeps in mind the tradition. There are many areas that are positioned throughout the house so as to cater to various sizes and type of social gathering.Save this picture!© Prashant BhattThe main concept of the house was to blur the line between indoors and outdoors. The spaces in the house blend into each other creating a free flowing plan that connects the front lawn to the green backyard interlaid with elements from the Goan – Portuguese history.Save this picture!© Prashant BhattWe cannot overlook the fact that Goa was ruled by Portuguese for nearly 400 years, but the architecture that sprung up from this era was developed by Goans keeping  the tropical climate of Goa in mind inspirited by the Portuguese architecture context.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanInspired by the concept of Architect Le Corbusier, the planning of the house is choreographed around framing of views and scenes that alternate between controlled views of the nature and wide panoramas that create a variety of different atmosphere and experience throughout the houseSave this picture!© Prashant BhattThe house is never revealed at once. The circulation is planned in such a way that the spaces are slowly unfolded to the visitors in an experiential and spatial journey throughout the house. Save this picture!© Prashant BhattA lotus pond acting as a reflection pool welcomes the guest towards the balçao (traditional name for entrance porch).Save this picture!© Prashant BhattA teak wood door with a ‘janger dancer’ sculptural face placed on the lintel, an industrial cage light adorned with a tube shaped filament bulb  and the red IPS (Indian Patented stone) finished bench with Azulezos or Goan painted tiles embedded in it define the entrance porch or balçao. Adding to the charm is the floor finished with the bush hammered black granite.

Rumah Fajar, which means “The House of Dawn” in Bahasa Indonesia, is a modern architectural interpretation of a traditional Balinese longhouse bale agung. Boasting spectacular views of Bali’s most sacred volcano Gunung Agung, the home is steeped in the local vernacular through its design and choice of materials.Save this picture!© Tommaso RivaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanStudio Jencquel began building in August 2017 — simultaneous with the eruption of Gunung Agung — and finished construction two years later in August 2019. Abundant use of volcanic stone represents an allegorical element of the completed design, entwining the great volcano and the “great pavilion” in its shadow. Nestled seamlessly into a lush hillside and facing the rising sun, the luxurious 4-bedroom Rumah Fajar presents a humble abode that is not so humble, after all.Save this picture!© Tommaso RivaEntering the space through a small, unpretentious Balinese door known traditionally as angkul-angkul , twin gate guardian statues known as Men Brayut sit on either side upon the local terracotta brick gate, blessing all who pass with strength, fertility, harmony, and prosperity. Past the threshold lies a candi (a shrine or temple), here playing the role of aling-aling , an obstacle often seen in the entrance to Balinese homes intended to deflect and confuse unwanted guests or spirits. The house is accessed by a sinuous bridge hovering above a large koi pond; a zigzag path designed not only to confuse spirits, but to give one the elevated sense of entering a tree house with a castle-like feeling of protection.Save this picture!© Maximilian JencquelSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Maximilian JencquelEnsconced among a verdant tropical garden of coconut palms, tree ferns, heliconia, orchids that emanate a whiff of chocolate — along with fruit-bearing trees such as durian, breadfruit, and rambutan — this journey into botanical reverie culminates at the main entrance door. From the outside, we see how Gunung Agung and traditional Balinese living inform the design of Rumah Fajar. The house blends into its wild natural setting along the hillside in great part due to the combination of only two dominant materials — Bata Tulikup , a Balinese terracotta brick from Tulikup village; and charred ironwood following Japanese techniques of Shou-Sugi-Ban .Save this picture!© Tommaso RivaBale agung m eans “great pavilion”, and here the great m ain pavilion of the house is elevated upon an elongated brick “podium”. This creates an exterior view ruled by ironwood, brick, and the sacred volcano — all reborn from earth with strength and beauty in fire. In creating the main frame of the house, a steel structure was designed to saddle the timber roof structure to a millimeter precision; and to perform with the highest degree of endurance in case of an earthquake.Save this picture!Site PlanH-beams are positioned on the floor plan in a similar fashion to the timber pillars found in the traditional Balinese longhouse, reinforcing the idea of a modern vernacular. The overall design is meant to be open and not boxed in, with ample air flow through cross-ventilation. The landscaping and gardens, designed by Maximilian Jencquel, supplement the home with cooling shade and plenty of space for gentle breezes to pass through.Save this picture!© Tommaso RivaProject gallerySee allShow lessLe Gardien Pavilion / Collectif REV.LSelected ProjectsPrecious Talk House / JNDASelected Projects Share Projects Indonesia Houses Lead Architect: Rumah Fajar / Studio Jencquel CopyHouses•Indonesia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957670/rumah-fajar-studio-jencquel Clipboard “COPY”center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957670/rumah-fajar-studio-jencquel Clipboard Save this picture!© Tommaso Riva+ 31Curated by Hana Abdel Share Rumah Fajar / Studio JencquelSave this projectSaveRumah Fajar / Studio Jencquel Maximillian Jencquel ArchDaily “COPY” Architects: Studio Jencquel Photographs CopyAbout this officeStudio JencquelOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBaliOn InstagramOn FacebookIndonesiaPublished on February 28, 2021Cite: “Rumah Fajar / Studio Jencquel” 28 Feb 2021.

Cowboys coach Garrett speaks at fundraiser for Bynum School

first_img Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett speaks about keeping the highest standard possible during an annual fundraiser luncheon benefiting Bynum School Tuesday at the Midland Country Club. Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett speaks to the media after an annual fundraiser luncheon benefiting Bynum School Tuesday at the Midland Country Club. Facebook Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett speaks to the media after an annual fundraiser luncheon benefiting Bynum School Tuesday at the Midland Country Club. Previous articleTalent entertainmentNext articleSULLUM: Supreme Court’s silence clouds gun control debate admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Home Local News Education Cowboys coach Garrett speaks at fundraiser for Bynum School 1 of 2 “I had great visits with not only the students who go there, but their families, and it was fun to be here and try to support it.”Bynum School was first opened as the Developmental Disabilities Center in 1984. Tuesday marked the school’s second annual Bynum Blooms event. Former first lady Laura Bush spoke at the event last year.“That was awesome. (Garrett) was so nice and so gracious, and we were just thrilled that he could make it here for us today,” said Keri St. John, Bynum School’s head of school for student programs and services.Garrett closed his speech Tuesday with a telling of a story for which he named his charity organization, Jason Garrett Starfish Charities. In the story, a boy throws beached starfish back into the ocean to save them from drying out, and when a skeptic tells the boy that there are countless starfish on the beach and that he isn’t making a difference by only throwing a few of them, the boy responds by saying he’s making a big difference to the ones he does throw.It’s a message in line with the vision at Bynum School, which made Garrett a perfect fit to speak Tuesday, St. John said.“If we can help one student, then we feel like we’re accomplishing our goals,” she said.Garrett, in turn, said Bynum School is an organization with goals in line with many of his own.“I think the biggest thing that we’re all trying to do is simply make a difference,” Garrett said. “Sometimes, the problems in the world can seem insurmountable, but the encouragement is to somehow, someway dive in anyway and try to help one of them.“There’s no question in my mind, from my experience, and knowing about Bynum, they’ve done an amazing job helping a lot of people, individuals and families, over the last 30 or so years. It’s an impressive place.”Garrett said he just returned to the state on Monday night, after spending a week in Indianapolis for the NFL’s Scouting Combine, where pro teams have a chance to evaluate players leaving college and hoping to be drafted in the NFL. But even after a busy week, the coach made it to Midland for Tuesday’s event.“It’s great. Everybody’s so nice,” Garrett said of his trip to West Texas. “It’s just fun to be here.“It’s flat,” he laughed, agreeing with a reporter. “But the people are great. And that’s been my experience in the past.”Tuesday’s experience, by all accounts, was a success for Bynum School.“It was certainly one of those opportunities that you said, ‘I’d like to be a part of something like this,’” Garrett said. “The more you find out about it, the more you realize the impact they’re making on a lot of people.” Twittercenter_img Registration set for engineering camp WhatsApp Pinterest MIDLAND Jason Garrett smiled, as he shared a familiar story.It’s one that’s resonated with the Dallas Cowboys head coach for a while, and as he looked over the podium in front of him and all across a packed ballroom, he saw plenty others stirred and on board with the same, common vision.With a message about working to make a difference, Garrett spoke and shared stories as the guest speaker at the Bynum Blooms luncheon and fundraiser for Bynum School on Tuesday at Midland Country Club — conveying values and motivations officials said were right in line with those at Bynum, a school in Midland for students with special needs.“I thought it went great,” Garrett said, just after the luncheon ended. “The Bynum School seems to be really changing a lot of people’s lives out here.

And, she’s almost certain there was never a time like that.Her dad, her uncle and several cousins played the guitar and sang. Her cousin Lynn Owsley played steel guitar with country music legends, Ernest Tubb and Carl Perkins.Hartzog’s first stage was on the playground at Pike County Elementary School. She would stand on the makeshift platform and take song requests from her classmates. Hartzog’s submission to God’s plan didn’t begin as one might think. She was singing at Paradise Palms on the beach in the Florida Panhandle and was approached by a man who was “as drunk as Cooter Brown.”“This man came up to me and told me that I could really sing,” Hartzog said. “He said he was not a Christian but he believed in God. He told me when I sang, he could feel God all around him. He said he could feel the presence of the Lord. He told me to never stop singing. What he said made a difference.”Hartzog said the Lord changed life and saved her.“That’s why I sing just for Him,” she said. “I don’t sing to glorify myself. I sing for the one who made it possible.”Hartzog has never had voice lessons or any kind of professional training.“My voice is a gift from God,” she said. “It’s blessing from God and I praise Him for what He has given me and what He has done in my life. This CD was done in praise to him and I’m so excited to release ‘Songs of Faith’ at a praise and worship celebration with my family and friends.”Terry Tompkins, Malinda Barbaree and others will also sing at the celebration.The Release of Hartzog’s CD and the Praise and Worship Celebration will be from 4 until 6 p.m. Saturday, March 21 at the Tarentum Community Center in Tarentum on Highway 125, the Brundidge to Elba/Enterprise highway.Admission is free and everyone is invited.

Two high-profile agents investigated by Advertising Standards Authority

It featured comparisons of different estate agents including their number of properties for sale and average listing age.Two complainants, who said the comparisons were based on YOPA’s national figures against their competitors’ local one, challenged whether the comparison was misleading“We raised these concerns with the advertiser,” the ASA says.“YOPA confirmed that the ad had been removed and that they would not compare their national data with competitor’s local data.”Advertising Standards AuthorityA direct mailing by Marsh & Parsons, which is owned by LSL, was referred to the ASA after a letter addressed to a complainant offered to rent out their property because “we couldn’t help but notice that your property is currently on the market for lettings”.“I’d love to meet you and let you know how Marsh & Parsons… can expose your property to the widest range of tenants,” the letter went on.The only trouble was the complainant’s property wasn’t available for rent and they objected that the ad was likely to “cause undue distress”.After being contact by the ASA, Marsh & Parsons talked to its data provider and promised the direct mail was an isolated instance.The company has also undertaken to not contact the complainant again with communications of this nature.Marsh & Parsons advertising standards authority ASA YOPA November 22, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
