SAV shapes a poetic house that flows with the landscape – Located in the tropical and sea side state of Goa, in West India, the ‘Sun House ‘ , is designed by the London, Mumbai and Goa based SAV Architecture + Design . Inspired from the fiery nature of sun , the architects have created the house with local red laterite stone exterior walls , large sunscreens as well its double height brick inner entrance and living spaces.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauThe form of the house is derived from landscape, with emphasis on bold sweeping strokes, fluid lines and large overhangs that reflect within the interior spaces. Working within a tightly constrained site which is not usual for holiday homes and with little views the architects focused on creating an inward looking house , that draws the elements of nature towards itself.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fabien CharuauThe exposed brick wall forms the central spine of the house changing its course as it moves to the double height living space creating a dynamic and sweeping effect. The curved living space is a sunken one designed to be in line with the level of the pool outside creating a poetic visual bridge with ‘water’ with its amphitheater like seating. The double height doors of the living slide and fold to open the interiors wherein one feels that the living spaces is part of the pool.Save this picture!East ElevationSave this picture!North ElevationThe architects used a simple, minimal and locally available material palette that allowed them to stay true to the architectural experiences while focusing on the craftsmanship and details as well as nature and the connection to the outdoors . Exposed concrete roof and floors lend a seamlessness to the interiors while also keeping the house cool in the tropical weather of Goa.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauDesigned artistically, the house still responds to its tropical climate with large overhangs and shaded courtyard green spaces. The overhands and sloping roofscapes reflects within the internal spaces and through its varying slopes and angles generating unique spatial moments across the entire house. The entrance of the house is designed with a brick lined wall over a linear water body with large sun screens on the south wall that create both a reflective and performative mood as soon as on enters the house. The floating teak open riser stairs with its brass rods create layers of texture and materiality that flow through the entire house.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauWith its Goan-Portuguese inspired traditional cement tiled flooring, local granite counters, with a high spec modern kitchen and bright fresh furniture the open plan dining and kitchen is designed to be a fun, fresh and light space that beautifully blends a local and international feel . Shaped around an internal courtyard on both sides , the kitchen and dining areas receive a lot of light, natural ventilation and a constant connection to the outdoors.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauOn the first level the stairs end with an open plan mezzanine space that looks onto the double height sunken living . The unique lights were designed by the architects specific to this space and were inspired from the architectural lines of the house. All the bedrooms open up through fluid sweeping white corridors that provide an element of surprise when one enters them. Each bedroom has its unique connection to the outdoors, while the main master room has a large private terrace that looks onto a louvered courtyard on side and the pool onto another.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauFitted timber joinery as well as hints of bold colour in textiles and art provide a contrasting warmth to the minimal and meditative architectural palletes. One of the most important spaces in the house are all the bath spaces, and all five of them are designed to create a strong connection to the fiery nature of materials , top lit skylights as well as to the fluid spatial lines of the house.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauThe bar and poker room spaces around the pool side offer a mix of chic interiors with crafted furniture with a strong connection to the tropical plants outside, both near the pool as well as the inner courtyards they look onto. The landscape around the pool although not large, takes its cues from the dramatic lines of the house, creating spaces that flow in and out seamlessly lending a dynamic and picturesque quality to the space.Project gallerySee allShow lessVidya Devi Jindal Paramedical College / SpaceMattersSelected ProjectsOnline Masterclass: Authentic Marketing for Designers and Design FirmsLecture Share “COPY” Civil Contractor: Area:  500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Startup Strategy Roundtable: Don’t Waste Precious Years Of Your Life

first_imgI’ve seen too many entrepreneurs wasting precious years of their lives, and I sincerely try to discourage anyone from wasting his or her time on an idea that does not have legs based on concrete customer feedback. One of the entrepreneurs said he thinks of me as the Simon Cowell for entrepreneurs after listening to some recordings of previous roundtables. I think my advice is only valuable if I’m being honest and direct. Plus, I don’t want to waste my precious time either!Sramana Mitra is a technology entrepreneur and strategy consultant in Silicon Valley. She has founded three companies and writes a business blog, Sramana Mitra on Strategy. She has a master’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her Entrepreneur Journeys book series, Entrepreneur Journeys, Bootstrapping: Weapon Of Mass Reconstruction, Positioning: How To Test, Validate, and Bring Your Idea To Market and her latest volume Innovation: Need Of The Hour, as well as Vision India 2020, are all available from Amazon. Mitra is also a columnist for Forbes and runs the 1M/1M initiative. Dawson Fercho started off by introducing Temetic Research, an software services company that offers advanced tools based on digital sociology that can offer a deeper understanding of social media buzz (beyond just words) than social listening and monitoring products currently do. Launched in January, they already have half a dozen communications firms who deal in brand awareness and management on board as clients. They offer a base analysis report as a service, and they hope those who like the report will become clients of either the software products or of their ongoing service. Dawson asked if he should position his business as being similar to social monitoring to help potential clients fit them into a category. He tells me there are several metrics that his technology is able to track because of the algorithmic sophistication that others cannot, so my advice is to lead with those metrics to differentiate. He needs to ask customers if they are interested in measuring X, Y, and Z to validate that these metrics are indeed of interest to them. Dawson said all of their money is going into development, and my advice is to ramp up the base analysis service to help fund their development and continue to bootstrap. I also suggested he explore partnering with SaaS PR businesses like Vocus PR who I think will find this technology intriguing. I asked him to check out my case study on Vocus PR.Next, Griffin Boyce presented PsycView, a software to help eliminate the distance between doctors and patients. Griffin discussed how this software can help doctors manage patients over great distances, and also how patients can use it to get treatment from rural and frontier areas. Griffin is trying to do too many things at once with his business and is going in too many directions. He spoke about having an iPhone application to serve people living in frontier areas, but the iPhone is not widely used in such places. He said he thinks addicts are a strong segment to target, but I don’t think people in the depths of addiction will be checking their phones for solutions. I think there could be something interesting in Griffin’s pool of ideas, but he needs to do a lot more focused work to figure out what it is. I told him it’s like an uncut diamond that still needs to be shaped and pared down to get to the gem. He needs to focus his software on doing one thing really well – zero in on one idea, a specific disease or whatever. Spraying and praying does not work. I suggest using the Clarify Your Story framework to focus.Gustavo Hernando was up next to present daFoodie, a website that allows diners in Orlando to share photos of their plate of food at a restaurant to help others decide where to eat. He sees the sharing of such photos as a growing trend and does not plan to include ratings or reviews. I’m very concerned that there is no reasonable way to make money doing this. I question how many people base their dining decision on photos alone rather than reviews. Perhaps he could partner with some other review sites, but what will keep them from doing this themselves? I hate to discourage any entrepreneur, but Gustavo may be better off using his considerable skills elsewhere. It is very expensive to go to market in this area; OpenTable has spent a ton of money. I hope Gustavo will find an opportunity that will monetize better for him.Then we had Rudy Santamaria who has designed a line of kids clothing called Look Mommy! Clothing. These clothes convey positive images depicting what a child would like to be when he or she grows up. He has sold 750 of these shirts by hand in the past six months, validating that this is something parents are interested in buying for their child. If he would like this business to scale, the next step is to figure out how to sell these shirts without Rudy being physically involved in the process. Since baseball player and rock star shirts are his best selling, I suggest he start exploring what the best channels are for each category and remain very focused on each niche. Personally, I’m aware of a high level effort to interest young girls in science, so I suggested he do a Look Mommy, I’m A Scientist design for girls and target the organizations that are leading this movement.Up last was Matt Walters for Sports Spray, a line of water resistant spray products to help amateur and professional athletes excel. His product line includes a stick spray (to enhance grip), slip spray (for under padding and blisters), no sweat spray (antiperspirant for hands or feet), more sweat spray (enhances workout and weight loss), and shoe spray (to keep from slipping). He is ready to go to market but is wondering if he should lead with a product whose competition retailers would already be familiar with or should he introduce the slip spray product, which is totally unique. I suggest he start with the new, more differentiated product, the slip spray, and manufacture that first. He should focus all the branding around this new product and getting it reviewed by bloggers and social media influencers interested in sports. We discussed very targeted advertising to coaches since he believes it is a cost-effective and reasonably priced channel. I suggested he validates that the demand for this product exists by selling online before chasing retailers to get broader distribution.I started doing my free Online Strategy Roundtables for entrepreneurs in the fall of 2008. These roundtables are the cornerstone programming of a global initiative that I have started called One Million by One Million (1M/1M). Its mission is to help a million entrepreneurs globally to reach $1 million in revenue and beyond, build $1 trillion in sustainable global GDP, and create 10 million jobs. In 1M/1M, I teach the EJ Methodology which is based on my Entrepreneur Journeys research, and emphasize bootstrapping, idea validation, and crisp positioning as some of the core principles of building strong fundamentals in early stage ventures. In addition, we are offering entrepreneurs access to investors and customers through our substantial channels. Our newly launched 1M/1M Incubation Radar series this week profiles La Grande Dame, and you can also read about several other 1M/1M entrepreneurs on my Forbes column, These Companies Are Built To Enjoy.You can find the recording of this roundtable session here. Recordings of previous roundtables are all available here. You can register for the next roundtable here.

first_imgMourinho names Ronaldo Nazario as greatest player of all-timeby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJose Mourinho has named Ronaldo Nazario as the greatest player of all-time.Having enjoyed a glittering managerial career, which has seen him take charge of Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United, Mourinho knows a thing or two about talented footballers. “Ronaldo, El Fenomeno, Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer careers, they have remained at the top every day for 15 years,” Mourinho told LiveScore.“However, if we are talking strictly about talent and skill, nobody surpasses Ronaldo [Nazario]. When he was at Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realised that he was the best player I’d ever seen take to the field.“Injuries killed a career that could have been even more incredible, but the talent that that 19-year-old boy had was something incredible.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgWolves captain Coady: Strange playing against Liverpoolby Paul Vegas11 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves captain Conor Coady admits it still feels strange playing against Liverpool.The centre-back spent 15 years at Anfield before joining Huddersfield Town in 2015.”It’s a weird feeling, when I play against them I want to win more than ever. I don’t know why that is. I just do,” said Coady.Asked about the Reds’ chances this season, Coady added: “I know it’s early doors, but I think with Liverpool this year they don’t seem to be panicking.”People are talking about them conceding and not keeping clean sheets but when they do they think it’s okay cause we can score another. City seemed like that last year.”With Liverpool, they missed out on the Champions League the year before and then they kick on again because the manager is that good.”I don’t want to speak too soon but they look to be going [up] again which is so good to see for them.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Former FSU RB Says It’s “Dumb Sh*t” For Jimbo Fisher To Start Jacques Patrick Over Mario Pender

first_imgFormer Florida State running back Karlos Williams is upset – and a little misinformed. Saturday afternoon, Williams, who is clearly watching his alma mater take on Syracuse, tweeted out his displeasure with head coach Jimbo Fisher for starting freshman Jacques Patrick over junior Mario Pender at running back in place of injured star Dalvin Cook. The only problem? Pender is out for the contest, still recovering from a collapsed lung he suffered back in September.Screen Shot 2015-10-31 at 12.17.23 PM Williams later realized his mistake.Pender ain’t dressed. Wtf— Karlos Williams Sr (@Karlos_29_SR) October 31, 2015 Pender did return to practice this week, for what it’s worth. But he’s been listed as out since Thursday.Fisher also said that Terrance Smith, Mario Pender, Marcus Lewis, Derrick Kelly will be out for Syracuse. Ryan Hoefeld is questionable.— Curt Weiler (@CurtMWeiler) October 29, 2015Another reminder to never tweet.last_img read more

Spill at Trans Mountain station larger than BC government first reported

first_imgKAMLOOPS, B.C. – A spill from Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline late last month was 48 times larger than initially reported, officials said.The spill volume reported from the company’s Darfield station north of Kamloops on May 27 was revised to 4,800 litres from 100 litres, the B.C. Ministry of Environment said Sunday.It said 100 litres is the minimum threshold under the company’s spill reporting obligations, so that’s why the ministry estimated 100 litres at the time.Trans Mountain spokeswoman Ali Hounsell said the company didn’t tell regulators how much medium crude oil escaped at the time of the spill.“Trans Mountain had not provided an estimate of the volume spilled, other than to confirm with regulators that it was over the reportable threshold, until cleanup had sufficiently progressed to a stage where an accurate estimation could be provided,” she said in an email.Following an onsite investigation, she said Trans Mountain has provided the updated volume estimate to regulators.Trans Mountain is in the final stages of completing the cleanup, she said.Under British Columbia’s spill reporting regulation, Trans Mountain was required to report the spill immediately. The regulation says the quantity spilled should be among the information included in that report, “to the extent practical.”The company turned off the pipeline for several hours the day of the spill, which the ministry said came from a leaking flow metre.The spill was contained to the station property and no waterways were affected, the ministry said.Two days later, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the federal government will spend $4.5 billion to buy the Trans Mountain expansion and Kinder Morgan Canada’s core assets.Kinder Morgan had ceased all non-essential spending on the Trans Mountain expansion in April, vowing to cancel it unless it received assurances it can proceed without delays and without undue risk to shareholders by a deadline of May 31.After the federal government’s announcement, the company said work would be restarted soon, with the government funding construction. The sale is expected to close in the second half of the year.last_img read more

BC announces agreement with legal aid lawyers

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – A one-time grant of $7.9 million to support the development of a new framework for legal aid funding was announced by the Province and the Legal Services Society (LSS).$4 million from the government and $3.9 million from LSS will be used to increase payments to legal aid lawyers from April 28, 2019, until Oct. 31, 2019. To ensure lawyers continue to provide legal aid services to those most in need, while the government, LSS and the Association of Legal Aid Lawyers (ALL) negotiate an agreement for long-term, sustainable legal aid funding.“We recognize there is work to be done to improve the legal aid system both for British Columbians and the counsel that represent them in court,” said David Eby, Attorney General. “Legal aid lawyers provide services to some of the most vulnerable members of the province, and we will continue to work with LSS to address the historical underfunding of legal aid.” The foundation will receive the grant and work with government, LSS and ALL to allocate the funding. The Law Foundation of BC is a non-profit foundation with a mandate to fund legal aid and other law-related initiatives.The ALL negotiating team has issued this statement: “We appreciate the recognition by government of the important work our members do for vulnerable British Columbians and look forward to negotiations that will provide a solution to a very much neglected legal aid system.”According to the government, LSS and ALL have also committed to designing a long-term legal aid negotiation framework, paving the way for a smoother negotiating process in the future.This grant is in addition to the $26 million over three years (2018-19 through 2020-21) in increased funding to LSS already announced by the government to support the provision of criminal, family and civil legal aid services shared the government.last_img read more

Govt preparing list of profit-making arms of CPSEs for listing

first_imgNew Delhi: The Finance Ministry is in the process of shortlisting profit making subsidiaries of CPSEs having a minimum stipulated net-worth, which can be listed on the stock exchanges, an official said. Currently, profit making CPSEs with a minimum net-worth of Rs 500 crore are listed on the exchanges. The Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) will be consulting administrative ministries and central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) before finalising the names of the subsidiaries for the stock exchange debut. “We are drafting a list of subsidiaries of CPSEs which can go in for listing through initial public offer. The net-worth threshold for such listing too would be decided after deliberation,” an official said. In 2017-18, there were 257 operational CPSEs, of which 184 were profit making. Most of the profit-making subsidiaries of CPSEs are in coal, power and oil and gas sector. The official said, CPSE arms having a track record of making profit for at least three years are likely to be picked up for listing. The DIPAM, the official said, is preparing the pipeline of state-owned companies which can be listed on the stock exchanges in the current financial year or subsequent fiscals. The pipeline is necessary as the government holding in most of the bluechip CPSEs is close to 51 per cent. Though the listing of CPSE subsidiaries will not fetch any money to the government directly but it will get money in the form of dividend from the parent company. In 2016, the DIPAM came out with capital restructuring guidelines for CPSEs, which mandates that they must pay a minimum annual dividend of 30 per cent of profit after tax or 5 per cent of the net worth, whichever is higher.last_img read more
