Chief executive Yoganathan Ratheesan picked up his company’s award from business secretary Vince Cable.Also honoured at the annual event were ex-steel magnate and City restaurateur Dinu Bhattessa, the owner of the Mint Leaf lounges and winner of this year’s Asian Business Restaurant of the Year. The night also saw the launch of the 2011 Asian Rich List, put together by the Asian Media and Marketing Group, which provided a fascinating insight into the contribution that Asian businesses make to the UK economy. The list was unsurprisingly topped by steel billionaire Lakshmi Mittal, who runs the ArcelorMittal empire from his Berkeley Square offices and is estimated to be worth more than £15bn. Second on the list was the Hinduja family, whose diverse business interests range from wealth management to energy and defence. Gopi Hinduja – joint owner of the family group alongside brother Sri – attended Friday’s award ceremony, and gave attendees an insight into his success on an after-dinner panel discussion alongside Arora hotels founder Surinder Arora and former Priory Group chief Dr Chai Patel. whatsapp A NIGHT TO CELEBRATE ASIANS IN BUSINESS last_img read more

The Project is born over the remains of an ancient, about 120 year old cottage. It had a popular, architectural typology of the region, this means, one floor with two spaces, facing the south, with the rooms in both sides of the central circulation and spaces of chambers and under covers in the upper floor. Save this picture!For taking roots with the places history, the first decision is to lean us on the remains of the ancient house. Save this picture!On the other side the demolition material is recycled for its relocation in the same height of the ground floor. Save this picture!The new executed area, where once the corral was situated, is now like an ambiguous space, without use, sensorially opened to the exterior. The selection of the peaces remaining of the demolition, depending of their sizes, lets us alter the degrees of the hollows in function of the orientation. The remaining space between this filter-skin, executed with cages of stone (were they corrals?) and the waterproof skin of carpentry allows a permanent ventilation.Save this picture!planProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture City Guide: Los AngelesArticlesOMA Developing a New Vision for Transit Authority in Hong KongArticles Share Architects: Momo Estudio Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/104356/casa-ruiz-momo-estudio Clipboard Houses Save this picture!+ 11 Sharelast_img read more

Viewed from the street this unassuming family home hides a secret; a cluster of interconnected pavilions with an oval courtyard garden at their centre.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe publicly visible faces of the pavilions, aligned with the square geometry of the level block of land, are respectfully attuned to homogeneous character of the early 1900s federation era Subiaco streetscape – one of the best preserved suburbs in Perth – in the small scale of their pitched rooves, the updated interpretation of the traditional veranda that surrounds them, and the criss-cross pattern formed in the brickwork reclaimed from the dilapidated buildings that previously occupied the plot. This commitment to ensuring the new building’s façade is sympathetic with its period surroundings has led to it being enthusiastically adopted by the neighbourhood, yet stepping through the front entrance reveals this home to be anything but square.Save this picture!© Edward BirchThe elliptical courtyard, which runs diagonally through heart of the house from the front door to the back gate, is the focal point of the home in terms of both design and use. The courtyard divides the bedrooms from the living space with the entrance hall in the centre. From the entry one can view the whole courtyard with the living and bedroom wings flanking it, it is a very intimate and private space, minimally landscaped with a lawn, enhanced by a couple of mature growth trees existing on the block.Save this picture!© Edward BirchExternally the oval is bordered by another veranda with its Jarrah timber deck set at seat height, which provides the family with a theatrical open space to play and entertain that is visible and easily accessible from wherever they are in the house. It also showcases some of the more contemporary elements of the building in details such as the Luigi Rosselli Architects designed profiled aluminium wall cladding to the veranda and vertical sun shade louvres. Internally the courtyard lends its form to the surrounding buildings in the curves of the connecting corridors and partition glass panelling.Save this picture!© Edward BirchThe interiors of the house reflect the constructive tension in its timeless aspects such as the pitched roof forms, enhanced with exposed timber trusses and painted tongue and groove lining boards, small paned windows and traditional French doors, with the more modern materials such as the polished concrete and black steel fire surrounds, contemporary joinery finishes and Scandinavian furniture.Project gallerySee allShow lessC-Q Project / JSªSelected ProjectsAL House / Studio Arthur CasasSelected Projects Share Houses ArchDailylast_img read more

Monsoon House / Ayutt and Associates Design

Problems of modern housing today evokenot only because of a single-world universalization, but also a loss of connections to history, national cultures, and local nature. Material failure varies from place to place. The use of the same technologies throughout the world does not always take the uniqueness of places into their accounts. These challenges of engaging Regionalism critically and tangibly are left to be a responsibility of the architects, who will need to fight and seek for morecreative solutions in order to shape our society with care and sustainability.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomWith a 10-year-plus experience in designing housing and architecture particularly in the Southeast Asian region, Ayutt and Associate design or AAd bringsuptheir talent andregional experience in sustainable design and demonstratesthemthrough this recently launched project, the Monsoon House. Located in Trat, the easternmost province of Thailand, a private, peaceful residence was built along the coastline of the Thai Gulf—on the smooth sandy ground,embedding amidst the rubber plantation, and standing against the monsoon wind. It is in this astonishingsetting, mere steps away from the sea, that the Monsoon House was built and named accordingly by Ayutt and Association design (AAd).Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomTo minimize the monsoon’s impact on the building and landscape, the AAd team didfull research on weathering protection, as well as coastal erosion and residential privacy. The language and logic of the house are designed in response to the wind loads and storm protection as its location, Trat, is known to be one of the wettest provinces in the country. Understand the topography of the locus and not disturb the coastal nature, the house compositionsare found on a horizontal plane in order to compensate for the strong wind.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomWhile the house is treated as a refined Tropical Modern work, it also respectively responds to regional climatic conditions, which is hot and humid year-round, and demonstrates the creative use of modern materials such as aluminum cladding strip with traditional elements such as wood and stone. In the rainy season, life is a race, only the fastest person can escape the monsoon wet.Save this picture!SectionsThis house possesses these seasonal moods. It becomes a statement of man toward nature. In this project, the use of the 10-meter-long eave is to protect the sheltered areas from the splash of heavy monsoon rains, as well as to provideventilationof air and humidity driven by the winds from the ocean. This extra-long extended eave is also a poignant example of the reinterpretation of a Thai tradition element, the steep gable roof. Here, the roofs are designed without the rain gutters, so as to accommodate the disposal of heavy seasonal downpours as quickly as possible.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomIn the hot dry season, the same eave together with the trees carefully planted shields the house’s main structure from the strong sun coming from the south. From the main entrance, the Monsoon House does not exactly present a friendly face to the monsoon season. AluminumStrips cladding from side to side and bottom to top is all that one sees, an opening for fresh air but hiding from the outside perspectives. An exact calculation of aluminum-cladding apertures reflects a context refined and natural resilience—could hardly be imagined. This is because they tend to equate engagement with openness, the measure of which is visual continuity or literal transparency.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomThese aluminum cladding facades deployed throughoutthe master bedroom played a salient role in the passive cooling of the interior. During wintertime, they act as insulation, filtering the excessive coldness and moisture derived from mountains and the sea. While in summer, they keep the building naturally cool and reducing the need for air conditioning, together with affording safety and privacy to the room inside. The path of the sun and the sequence of vertical and horizontal plains of this house also coincide with the rhythm of day and night.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomThe master bedroom’s adjustable aluminum-cladding panels transform the connection between the exterior and interior spaces. When the master bedroom wants to reconcile with the outer world, the connection is displayed through its openings and changing enclosures, shifts in mood and patterns of behavior. The aluminum-cladding apertures regulate the light and secure the silence of the night. Its lighting-designed mechanism is a challenge, to make the master bedroom appeared floating above the pool’s existence.Save this picture!MasterplanThemaster bedroom facades are a reference to the outside world. The layout of the house was initially planned to serve all generations of dwellers—from children to elders—with a universal design, which is usable to the greatest extent possible, regardless of their ages. Thus, the heart of the house is a swimming pool. At this point, its function connects generations together and creates a gathering space, reflecting the lifestyle of the extended Thai family. Its horizontal sun terrace reflects the activity of the day.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomAt sunset, a shadow casts from the terrace steps remind us of the fading day, while the surrounding trees await the sunlight of the morning. Thus, the swimming pool terrace is the place the day begins and ends. The goal-route promenade through this house is straightforward, where each entry of the Monsoon House feeds directly into each family unit. For example, access to the master bedroom can be achieved by the private pathway close to the sun terrace between the main foyer and the swimming pool. However, the layout of the overall building components is still confirming that all volumes are relative. It can be broken as two family units or embraced as an entity.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomIn this manner, it will be able to sustain the solitude of each family, at the same time, expressingthe living culture of having extended families. The boundary of each unit erases itself, as it combines with the next, to constitute the whole. With a plan to further build an expansion for the future extended families around the swimming pool, the central space is still being shared and returns to the singular. As the interior confirms the existence of movement and touch of the family members, the exterior reveals its response to the gentle landscape.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomThe movement of the ramp and steps open up to the landscape, and the landscape provides varying experiences to the house members. The intention of the designers is not to build a garden, but to planta neweco-living system. The areas of green contrast with the sky. The self-sustainable parkwith its landscape of tropical fruits, rubber trees, fish pond, and cage-free animal terrainis very precious and scares. The former existing trees are honored, as the landscape masterplan gives room for their participation. The trees turn toward the sun and wind and protect the building according to the seasons.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomThe water pond is built in order to pay homage to the Monsoon rains. Its water is used to provide sustenance for plants both inside and out, linking the house with the cycle of the park. This honoring of natural context, framed in a place of genius loci, is the beginning of a search for a higher order of sustainable modern architecture. Monsoon House, therefore,is another architectural design which aims to elevate the quality of life of its residents, at the same time, respecting the constraints of the land topography, weathering, local belief, limited budget, and voices of family members both at the present and in the future.Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt MahasomProject gallerySee allShow lessBangkok City Guide: 23 Places to See in Thailand’s CapitalArchitecture City GuideShowroom Papier Tigre / Cent15 ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Projects Photographs:  Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt Mahasom ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928002/monsoon-house-ayutt-and-associates-design Clipboard Thailand Area:  1500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928002/monsoon-house-ayutt-and-associates-design Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Thailand Save this picture!© Soopakorn Srisakul and Ayutt Mahasom+ 33Curated by María Francisca González Share Monsoon House / Ayutt and Associates Designcenter_img Lead Architects: Monsoon House / Ayutt and Associates DesignSave this projectSaveMonsoon House / Ayutt and Associates Design Ayutt Mahasom, Suvatthana Sattabannasuk “COPY” Year:  CopyAbout this officeAyutt and Associates DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookThailandPublished on November 11, 2019Cite: “Monsoon House / Ayutt and Associates Design” 11 Nov 2019.

The location. Pilará House is located in a Country Club a few minutes away from Pilar. It is a rural urbanization of large lots, developed on the former ranch lands of the Pampa plains of Buenos Aires. The main landscape feature of its quarters is that it has maintained the soft sinuosity of the meadow, planted with different species of native trees and bushes, accompanying the layout of the urbanization. The house occupies an irregularly shaped corner lot with a gentle elevation with respect to the surrounding streets. The sidewalks are planted with young species of catalpas and maples.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe commission. The clients, a young couple without children, wanted a house developed entirely on the first floor -like a country house, they said-, although without repeating its classic typology, as they were interested in the complex spatiality of the different houses built by the studio.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThey also wanted a wide veranda and a swimming pool in contact with a projected landscape, which they imagined, in total harmony with the natural landscape of the Pampean plains. As a special requirement, they requested that some rooms of the house stand out for having a greater height in relation to the standard.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe program. A master bedroom with bathroom and large dressing room, two guest bedrooms with a bathroom to share, a large social area with integrated kitchen and, linked to it, the laundry room and the maid’s room. A “refuge” (space named by them) next to the dining room to “lie down” to rest, read or watch TV, with a large bunk bed as the main equipment. A covered garage for two vehicles and two uncovered spaces for visitor parking.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe proposal. The house was conceived as a single volume that, occupying the entire silhouette allowed by the building regulations, would be structured according to an orthogonal grid that would allow it to be pierced towards its interior, giving rise to the creation of courtyards of different scales according to the requirements of use and ambience of the activities programmed in them. These courtyards serve both to communicate spaces and to isolate them from each other but, above all, their purpose is to create landscape from the architecture itself, so that living in this house is an experience where the limits between inside and outside are diluted to enjoy a climate that allows it, and also the contact with a landscape designed with native vegetation always changing throughout the year.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianTo the outside, the house is closed on three sides with screens made of quebracho wood boards in vertical position that filter the views from both streets and from the neighbouring property, achieving privacy in all rooms and controlling the incidence of the sun in the different orientations. The façade towards the back of the house is completely open through large windows and a wide gallery with a pergola.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianIn order to solve the required difference in height between rooms without it being noticeable from the outside, which would weaken the single volume proposal, it was decided that the social area of the house and the entrance hall would be the outstanding rooms with a height of 3.05 meters.  The bedroom area was designed with a free height of 2.60 m, raising the floor to 0.45 m above the entrance level, bridging the difference with a gentle ramp exposed as soon as one enters the house. This space is not only circulatory, but one of its open sides with a large window allows to discover the spatiality and vegetation of the main courtyard, and ending in a small garden allows views to the surroundings and provides a pause to change the direction of circulation, isolating the area of the master bedroom from the guest bedrooms.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianReturning to the entrance hall, as soon as one passes through the door, it becomes evident that the social area of the house was conceived as a succession of closed and open spaces that communicate with each other and whose essence is discovered as one moves through them. It deliberately avoids the comprehension of the totality of the work in a quick glance, in order to awaken the interest in recognizing the quality of each projected space.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe treatment of natural light. In all of the studio’s projects, special attention is paid both to controlling the incidence of sunlight on the glazed surfaces and to taking advantage of natural light as a design material that adds richness to the living spaces. The openings are conceived as such, not as standardized elements with predetermined measurements and positions, but as perforations in the constructions that, of course, allow ventilating and illuminating the environments, but also to leave the exterior-interior relationship undefined, frame the landscape, filter the light, reflect it on a wall, etc. These perforations are the result of the particular searches of each project and the relationships that are to be established with their specific environment.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianProject gallerySee allShow lessWantouqiao Township Center / WCY Regional StudioSelected ProjectsThe Cork Butter Museum / Datum Architectural Studio + Stephen Foley ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Pilará House / Besonias Almeida Arquitectos “COPY” Architects: Besonias Almeida Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more
