Set on the Cliffside of a much-cherished lake, this cottage seeks to enhance the extraordinary surrounding scenery through the thoughtful integration of building elements with the natural assets of the site and terrain. This dwelling emerges form the rock formation of the cliff using the same local granite to form its base. A central core acts as an anchor that circulates movement, light and air into the living spaces that pinwheel and cantilever off into the landscape. In spite of its modest scale, the residence easily accommodates the family of four by providing amenity for dinning, cooking, living, reading and sleeping which are each carefully tuned to the unique view, light and breezes of the cliff. To balance the heavy mass derived from the fireplaces; cantilevered volumes, flying roofs and floor to ceiling glass are used to achieve a lightness of form as it works to bring the lake into the living spaces. Save this picture!Courtesy of Altius Architecture IncLiving lightly on the site was important to the owners due to their strong mandate for sustainability. As a retreat from urban life, the desire to become completely self sufficient and independent from external infrastructure became critical in the design of a completely off grid residence. A two tiered approach is implemented to take advantage of both passive strategies which work to reduce energy loads and augment comfort so that the active strategies are sufficient to provide for the remaining energy needs. Energy efficient design in this case is not divorced from the experiential qualities of the dwelling but is used to enhance the unification of building to the landscape for the pleasure of its owners. Save this picture!Courtesy of Altius Architecture IncThis system implements a passive gain and solar mass strategy that takes advantage of the sun’s daily passage and the movement of air in different seasons for each space. In summer, solar shading limits heat gain while operable windows are orientated to take advantage of natural ventilation. The operable windows in the central circulation space are designed to make use of the stack effect so that hot stale air is vented out and cool fresh air is drawn in. Green roofs are designed to mediate temperatures and control runoff while connecting the building foreground with the distant landscape. In winter, optimized glazing and solar orientation are used in conjunction with thermal mass in the form of concrete slabs and stone walls and the two interior fireplaces to store the sun’s radiant energy to form the base of the heating system. A high performance envelope design also works to limit unfavorable heat loss and gains all year round. Evacuated tube solar arrays are used collect the sun’s energy to collect hot water that is stored in 10 thermal mass tanks. The hot water collected through the panels then feed into a hydronic radiant floor system to ensure a highly efficient use of technology. A series of photovoltaic panels are used to provide the buildings on the property with electricity. To ensure their success, the electrical loads are carefully managed and are minimized by selecting energy efficient appliances and LED lighting. To round out the supply of heat in the residence, advanced geothermal systems with masonry heaters are used to take full advantage of abundant biomass and latent heat available on site.

The bungalow sits almost on top of the raised terrain of a 17 ha estate, where the rubber plantation stops and the jungle begins. It’s selected and elevated sitting allows an undisturbed view of the estate, the valley below and the hills beyond, a view that is always in flux with the changing seasons and the cycle of the paddy cultivation.Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein PereraThe bungalow serves to be a place where the client, a young entrepreneur, can oversee the functioning of the estate periodically and also as a get‐away for him, his family and friends. The client also wanted the flexibility to be able to rent out the bungalow to accommodate a clientele seeking to escape the busy life of the city, a place that would allow quiet rest.Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein PereraThe brief of this compact 120m2 bungalow was formulated primarily to cater to this factor of ‘rest’ and thus included only three bedrooms with attached baths and multi‐functional space with a pantry. Service personnel and ancillary spaces needed for the running of the bungalow and the estate were housed in existing buildings downhill, hidden by the tree canopy, allowing the occupier to completely disconnect from all daily routines and yet be provided with all his needs. The levels are linked using an almost external stairway, such that the bedrooms can be afforded the maximum privacy envisioned.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe form of the building is inspired by the modest “Chena Watch‐Hut”. A Chena or Shifting Cultivation that usually uses a slash‐and‐burn strategy is a common agricultural method seen in rural Sri Lanka. A watch‐hut is adopted as an elevated refuge for the farmer to protect the cultivation overnight.Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein PereraThe inspired form draws on the generic elements of the watch‐hut that encompasses a ‘Simple Form’, that is ‘Elevated’, ‘Protected’, yet ‘Connected’, allows ‘Maximum vantage’, has a ‘Single Entry’, could be ‘Dismantled’, ‘Re‐usable’ and primarily ‘Touches the Earth Lightly’. The solution adopts primarily an elevated deck extending off the hill, a fungible space that encompasses all living and functional aspects needed with the private areas tucked into a compact timber clad box. The simple asymmetric roof, skewed, its structure extending, touching the earth creates a certain imbalance, temporariness to the whole.Save this picture!SectionThe structural concept adopts the whole as an element placed on the hillside, rather than one that is embedded into it. The steel supports are the extended lines of the form itself, touching the naturally undulating ground at varying heights in the landscape.Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein PereraThe materials used are limited to steel, timber and bamboo tats attempting to keep the lines thin as possible imbuing it with a sense of ‘flimsiness’, keeping intervention on-site minimal, letting the natural ground, the vegetation, the run‐off of water to flow inhibited.Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein PereraThe bedrooms are timber clad using the board and board technique of wall cladding, imbuing a certain texture inside and out, and easing the solidity of the box, yet creating a protective envelope for the occupant. The east-facing façades of the bedrooms are left unclad, allowing maximum views.Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein PereraOriginally published February 12, 2014.Project gallerySee allShow lessRBANMS School Extension / Mathew and Ghosh ArchitectsSelected ProjectsA Hill on a House / Yuko Nagayama & AssociatesSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Matugama, Sri Lanka Save this picture!Courtesy of Narein Perera+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/475721/estate-bungalow-narein-perera Clipboard 2010 Housescenter_img Sri Lanka Estate Bungalow / Narein PereraSave this projectSaveEstate Bungalow / Narein Perera ArchDaily Area:  120 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeNarein PereraOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMatugamaIcebergSri LankaPublished on November 23, 2019Cite: “Estate Bungalow / Narein Perera” 23 Nov 2019.

Protests continue over attempts to repeal ACA

first_imgSupporters of single -payer health care march in Kingston, N.Y., on June 30.Grass-roots action protesting plans to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act continued to spread as June ended, despite the Republican-controlled Congress’s inability to pass new punitive legislation.According to estimates from the Congressional Budget Office, the bill discussed in the Senate would slash Medicaid funding over the next 10 years by $772 billion, while cutting taxes on the rich and superrich by $541 billion.It would also remove 22 million people from insurance coverage, increase deductibles and raise costs for the elderly and those with illnesses or disabilities.For many people this is an existential threat. Cuts to Medicaid imperil programs that care for millions of people suffering from opioid addiction. The bill also threatens widespread care for poor women by defunding Planned Parenthood and most of the home care needed by elderly people and people with disabilities.In a survey of opinion polls taken toward the end of June, as few as 12 percent to 18 percent supported the Senate bill, while 52 percent to 60 percent were against it, with the rest undecided. (CNBC June 28)People with disabilities, who would lose enormous support by cuts in Medicaid, continued to lead direct actions that confronted Congress. On June 28, after two days of sitting in at the Denver office of Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, 10 people were arrested, many of them people with disabilities. The demonstrators chanted they would “rather go to jail than die without Medicaid,” according to CNN.Days earlier, after holding a die-in at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office, people with disabilities from the organization ADAPT were arrested for their protest of the attacks on Medicaid. (Workers World, June 29)Along with these direct actions, many of the organizations that oppose the Trump administration for a raft of reasons participated in meetings with members of Congress to argue against cuts to Medicaid and the ACA or held protests outside their offices.The hundreds of protests were not limited to big cities. Many of them, like the one in Kingston, N.Y., on June 30 outside Republican Rep. John Faso’s office, raised the slogan of “Medicare for all.”This slogan is a call for a single-payer or national medical insurance for everyone, similar to that provided in Canada and many Western European countries. Medicare now covers 57 million people in the U.S., including those aged 65 and over, plus 9 million people with disabilities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
