Umbau einer Jahrhundertwende-Villa / hke architekten

first_img Umbau einer Jahrhundertwende-Villa / hke architekten 2009 CopyHouses•Mödling, Austria ArchDaily Photographs:  Gerald ZugmannText description provided by the architects. The basic structure of the existing old building is retained, although it is refurbished and the roof storey extended.Save this picture!© Gerald ZugmannAs historical elements, the facade, with its decorative elements such as pilasters, columns and gable constructions, as well as the Head of Adam (made by Rudolf Hausner) in the tympanum on the garden side, remain unchanged in their architectural language. The only alteration is that all the window elements are replaced and can be recognised as a contemporary intervention. Their functionally correct position in space makes them seem like pictures hung on the facade. Protective blinds against the sun and insects are integrated into the broad window frames, which are made of powder-coated aluminium sheeting. Save this picture!© Gerald ZugmannIn front of the living area on the ground floor is the newly erected garden terrace – the Tableau – with a seating area covered by a pergola, an open fireplace, a water basin and an outdoor staircase leading to the sun deck in the wellness wing. Its horizontal geometry and slightly greater height above the adjacent area, articulates a clear demarcation from the neighbouring landscaped park area, with its distinct slope. The geometry of this is encompassed by a surround made of prefabricated concrete components, accentuated in the dark by indirect illumination. It frames the new ensemble of old and new like a bracket running around three-sides of the buildings. A biotopic swimming pool adjoining the south corner of the Tableau continues the design geometry.Save this picture!© Gerald ZugmannWhen it was built at the beginning of the 20th century, the whole building was oriented toward Mödling’s castle ruins. The new design resumes this theme.Save this picture!© Gerald ZugmannIn contrast to the villa typology of that time, which the distinguishes the principal level from the surrounding landscape, the new design concept attempts to achieve a smooth transition from the external space to the interior by various means: elevation of the garden level (Tableau), angular arrangement of the new building to the old building, and the use of large-scale openable glass elements.Save this picture!Courtesy of hke architektenThe new building can be entered both directly from the forecourt, and from the hall of the old building via small bridge. The interface between the old and new building has been developed in the form of a glass construction on wall and the ceiling. Inside, this is continued by a ceiling slit of the same dimensions, which allows daylight to enter the cellar rooms of the old volume through a perforated metal lamella construction.Save this picture!© Gerald ZugmannThe steel-concrete supporting structure protrudes far out over the steep slope to the main road. A translucent, folded glass facade forms the outer shell on three sides. At night, this makes the volume reminiscent of a glowing lantern. Towards the garden terrace, a metal holder (protruding freely into the landscape on the south side) frames the sliding glass doors in front of the swimming pool (south-west facade). This makes it possible to park the doors when they are open.Save this picture!Courtesy of hke architektenThe flat roof is covered with greenery and has a wind-protected sun deck, accessible by an outdoor staircase. Protection from the sun and visibility (on the street side) is here provided by a wall panelled with larchwood boarding.Save this picture!© Gerald ZugmannIn connection with the existing villa and the green area which is developed as the Tableau, the wellness wing is defined as an intimate free zone. Its position on the property also means that it is an architectural element that is protected from visibility and noise from the main road.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessStripe House / GAAGASelected ProjectsVenice Biennale 2012: O’Donnell + TuomeyArticles Share Umbau einer Jahrhundertwende-Villa / hke architektenSave this projectSaveUmbau einer Jahrhundertwende-Villa / hke architekten “COPY” Save this picture!© Gerald Zugmann+ 21 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officehke architektenOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesMödlingAustriaPublished on September 25, 2012Cite: “Umbau einer Jahrhundertwende-Villa / hke architekten” 25 Sep 2012.

So, if you have money you can enter the state of Karnataka without restrictions but if you can’t afford to buy an air ticket you will be subjected to all these restrictions. How this can be tolerated?”, a bench headed by Chief Justice Abhay S Oka asked the government’s counsel.Observing that the modified order passed by the Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada on March 15, is misconceived and issued in complete non-application of mind, the Court orally directed the state government to withdraw it.The modified order was passed after the Court rapped the State Government for imposing travel restrictions in violation of the Central Government’s ‘unlock’ guidelines which prohibit curbs on inter-state travel.On Thursday, the bench termed the modified order “worse than the previous order”. As per the order passed on March 15, it is stated that all the check posts are opened for the public except those which are rarely used by the public. It is said : “Concerned local authorities as per the necessity (Gram Panchayat/Urban Local bodies/Municipality/Town Municipality) will be responsible for checking of RT-PCR negative report of the passengers coming into the district at every checkpost.” Further, it stated that “In consideration of the situation, every gram panchayat,/urban local bodies/municipality/town municipality, shall identify the points of the arrival in their respective jurisdiction to facilitate the public/student opening of the checkpost which are more likely to be used and closing of check post which are rarely used such decision must be taken and directions issued for arrivals from Kerala/Maharashtra state by Panchayat Task force committee which is already in existence.” Taking strong exception to these clauses, the division bench said :”This gives arbitrary power to local authorities to close any check post and open any check post anywhere. This authorizes them to close the check post. It is worst then the earlier order, at least earlier there was clarity on which check posts were open.”The bench also criticized another clause in the order which directed authorities to check for illegal movements of cash and liquor in the wake of upcoming assembly polls in Kerala.The said clause read : “All the Tashildars of the concerned taluk shall constitute a flying squad. Patrolling team along with taluk level officer and health department team for random checking, intensify and to monitor the illegal liquor supply, illegal cash movement and doubtful persons at all the check post for existing model code of conduct in Kerala state for the upcoming Kerala Legislative Assembly elections and to check overall functioning”.Terming this clause “misconceived”, the bench said : “You are mixing up two things, the direction is issued in exercise of Disaster Management Act. This is a completely misconceived order. What is the power of the District Disaster Management Authority, to pass such orders, to monitor movement of illegal liquor supply, cash, movement of doubtful persons?.”Another clause which came under the scanner of the bench read as follows : Local bodies in their respective jurisdiction shall collect information of all persons arriving from Kerala/Maharashtra and self monitor their health and seek immediate medical attention and examination of any covid related symptoms such as fever, cold cough throat, respiratory problems. The bench observed : “Is there any order passed by State government or State Disaster Management Authority (SDMA), directing the checking of persons who enter from Kerala or Maharashtra after they enter the state?” It added “By this clause it means that anybody who has a history of travel from Kerala, authorities will enter his house.” The court also frowned at clause 4 and 5 of the directions which read thus: Clause 4: In every checkpost the concerned gram panchayat shall deploy staff in a shift system in cooperation with the police department and shall check all the arrivals from Kerala should undergo RT-PCR negative report within 72-hours. Clause 5: The details of the daily commuter from Kerala State into Dakshina Kannada district must be maintained separately and students and employees should submit their id cards and undergo RT-PCR test negative report every fortnightly. The bench said : “A person who enters from Kerala is to undergo RT-PCR test, but what if a person from Karnataka goes to Kerala and comes back in afternoon, is he supposed to produce RT PCR negative report? It added “An ordinary citizen or resident of Karnataka enters the state of Kerala for some work, may be for selling his goods he comes back immediately. Will this man have to undergo a test? Suppose a person enters Kerala at 9 am and returns at 12 pm, so as per this clause, he will have to undergo a test in Kerala, the result will take minimum 6-hours to be known. The man will have to wait in Kerala till his RT-PCR test is known”. It also wondered how clause 5 will be interpreted is not known. It said, “A daily traveller from Kerala to Karnataka, they need not undergo RT-PCR test they need to be tested fortnightly, correct, but this will not apply to daily travelers from Karnataka State to Kerala.” The bench added “If a permanent resident of Karnataka goes to Kerala for 1 hour, they will ask to show RT-PCR test, what is all this?” The bench orally said: “Look at the consequences, at least in the original order four checkpoints were open. By virtue of clause 3, at the 11th hour someone will be told the route is closed, because for the last three days no person has used it so we closed it, so the person will have to take a different route. Will it not directly affect those people who are entering Kerala from Karnataka and coming back?”. The Bench allowed Advocate K RAVISHANKAR appearing for the petitioner B SUBBAYA RAI to amend the petition and challenge the March 15 directions issued by the Deputy Commissioner and Chairman of District Disaster Management Authority, Dakshina Kannada district, Mangaluru.Last year, the Kerala High Court had interfered with the blockade imposed by Karnataka Government on the Kerala border. Acting on a PIL filed by the Kerala High Court Advocates Association, the Kerala High Court directed the Union Government to open the highway for travel. The High Court noted that the travel restrictions had infringed the right to health of border residents, who were relying on hospitals in Mangalore for treatment.When Karnataka appealed to the Supreme Court, the SC suggested a dialogue between the Chief Secretaries of both the states. Following talks, the restrictions were lifted.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
