Living in Mumbai, India it is impossible to ignore the informal settlements in the city, and if looked at closely there are many lessons to be learnt in frugality, adaptability, multi-tasking, resourcefulness and ingenuity. A visual language emerges that is of the found object, ad-hoc, eclectic, patched and collaged. An attempt has been made here to apply some of these lessons without romanticizing or fetishizing them. The project looks at the idea of recycling and collage in several ways, from the very physical – like materials, energy, etc. to the intangible – like history, space and memories. The front façade sets the tone for what lies within, with a “corner of windows” that recycles old windows and doors of demolished houses in the city. This becomes a major backdrop for the living room with a exposed concrete faceted ceiling above countered by the polished white marble with intricate brass inlay on the floor. Metal pipe leftovers pieced together like bamboo form a “pipe wall” integrating structural columns, rainwater downtake pipes and a sculpture of spouts that in the monsoon are a delight for all the senses.Save this picture!Courtesy of S+PS ArchitectsSave this picture!Courtesy of S+PS ArchitectsIn the central courtyard on one side scrap rusted metal plates are riveted together, Kitsch colored tile samples retain a planter in the middle and on the third side is a wall clad in cut-waste stone slivers lifted off the back of stone cutting yards and waste generated on site. Hundred-year-old columns from a dismantled house bring back memories, and nostalgia is nourished with a lightweight, steel and glass pavilion (with solar panels above) on the terrace level overlooking fabulous views down the hillside. This approach is reinforced again in the interior materials and elements. It plays up this contrast between the old and the new, the traditional and the contemporary, the rough and the finished. One finds use of recycled materials like old textile blocks, Flooring out of old Burma teak rafters and purlins, colonial furniture, fabric waste (chindi) along with new ways of using traditional elements and materials like carved wooden mouldings, beveled mirrors, heritage cement tiles, etc.Save this picture!DiagramA language emerges that is both new but strangely familiar at the same time and that makes us rethink notions of beauty that we take for granted around us. To make this mélange more “acceptable”, it is encased in a “garb of modernity” (Nehru). This concrete frame – in a rough aggregate finish outside and in a smooth form finish inside – wraps and connects all the spaces from back to front and across all three levels.Save this picture!Courtesy of S+PS ArchitectsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!Courtesy of S+PS ArchitectsTo build on top of a hill is always exciting, until the architects discovered here that they were surrounded by neighbours on all sides. This led early on in the design process to look inwards and build around the quintessential Indian courtyard, albeit slightly modified. The court is actually raised a floor above the ground level and hidden below is a large rainwater harvesting tank wrapped with rock that was removed from the hillside during excavation. It is the core around which this large four-generation family is organized and comes together.

first_imgSandwich chain O’Briens says sales have risen by 14% across 50 stores, which have been redesigned in the past two months.The store makeovers include a reworking of in-store signage and images, with soft seating, lighting and café tables introduced.The franchise chain now plans to roll out the new look across all 100 of its stores in the UK and its 120 in Ireland, as well as across its total of 300 stores worldwide.”The redesign has helped differentiate O’Briens from other high-street sandwich bars. The fact that we are owner-operated also brings an independent feel that consumers seem to trust and feel comfortable with,” said Fiacra Nagle, CEO of O’Briens Sandwich Bars.last_img

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Regifting, the act of giving away an unwanted present, was brought to the forefront of American consciousness during the heyday of my favorite show, the sitcom, Seinfeld. In one episode, Elaine discovers, to her displeasure, that a label-maker that she had given to a dentist friend was “regifted” to Jerry Seinfeld.Over the years, regifting has evolved into an all-American pastime. In fact, the third Thursday in December has been officially designated “National Regifting Day” due to the preponderance of office party gifts (an estimated 40 percent) that are given away to others. But regifting can take place at any time of the year.Should we regift or not, and if so, what are the ground rules?Many consider this somewhat hush-hush practice a form of recycling, but I think we need to distinguish between different forms of regifting that are perfectly acceptable and others that should be considered offenses punishable by law.It is perfectly wonderful and acceptable to pass on a cherished possession, if it is presented as such. I see nothing wrong with giving someone the copy of The Nutcracker, which was read to you as a child, because you are passing something on that has brought pleasure. The bad kind of regifting is akin to forwarding that chain letter email that no one wanted to read in the first place.The little girl who is told by her mother to run into her bedroom and pick up one of her stuffed animals, which is summarily plopped in a gift bag and passed off as birthday present, is engaging in unpremeditated regifting, yet she may be on the road to becoming a serious offender. Those people who have dedicated space in their bedroom, with tiers of value not unlike that of the food pyramid, are guilty without an explanation.I would need the acumen and foresight embodied by all three wise men to figure out how to get these unwanted gifts and that legendary fruitcake out of orbit. Some should be thrown out; others, if worthy, could be donated to charity, where perhaps these orphans can be matched with the right person.But before you decide to recirculate that slightly mangy pseudo-suede address book in a preposterous color that saw better days a decade ago or that tie clip forged from an exotic alloy of metal bordering on plastic, grab that gift horse by the tail, look it squarely in the mouth, and consider what the recipient will be beholding.If the item is new, and shows no signs of being toyed with by your dog or the vagaries of time, and it is something that you think that the person might truly enjoy, then by all means, pass it on. Every present doesn’t have to be a big one, and in these tough economic times, a holiday card with heartfelt sentiments can be enough. On any celebratory occasion, what you set in motion should at least put a smile on someone’s face, and to do that, the selection must come from the heart.Here are some tale-tell signs that you’ve been regifted, all of which my family and I  have personally experienced:1) You unwrap the gift and cannot figure out what it is. Chances are the former recipient couldn’t tell either and decided to pass it on. My husband received a small, but unidentifiable heavy metal thingamajig last Christmas. Was it a paperweight? Objet d’art? I say, white elephant!2) You received an article of clothing which, although NWT (new with price tags), is not your size, and it is a color that that the giver is well aware is not flattering on you. To boot, it’s more provocative or avant-garde than is customarily your style. You’re immediately informed where it was purchased “in case you need to return it.” A dead give-away: the giver recently celebrated her birthday.3) Your friends’ reaction suggests that they were taken off guard by the generosity of your gift, and they excuse themselves and return from their bedroom with a generic basket of cheer, saying that they forgot to give you this. Oh, well!4) The gift looks more than vaguely familiar. A relative who will remain nameless was astounded to receive a necklace that she had lovingly chosen for a friend.5) There’s a gift card, and it’s not made out to you.6) You find a piece of old wrapping paper still attached to the box.7) It’s hard to see the glass as more than half full when the bottle of wine you received as a gift is several glasses short.8) The gift has clearly been used or it is missing parts. One year we were less delighted with a set of crystal wine glasses once we noticed that they had already been put to service  and only perfunctorily washed.9) You receive confectioneries such as a huge chocolate Christmas tree or Santa Claus not meant for someone who celebrates Chanukah. Even if it’s French chocolate, this is still in bad taste. We eventually succumbed to temptation and ate part of the Santa; someone took the chocolate tree off our hands.last_img read more
