The site is located at Pohegaon in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. The client approached us to design a shelter where one could have food and rest for a while. Evolution of this design started with understanding and evaluating various contemporary ideas for dwellings with multiple activities in the region. As this shelter is rendered to derive a unique identity for the dwelling and it is to be associated with multiple activities like storing, packing and selling goods cultivated in farmland, cooking facilities and providing temporary shelter for laborers working in farms with needful services.

This resulted in us to understand the evolution of house form from Dhaba (mud slab) house with verandah to Present day gated bungalows (exclusive artifacts) and low-cost shelter typology built in concrete and tin roof.   After this survey of existing houses and their technology of construction, it resulted in us to make use of thin concrete wall with metal pre-fab skeleton lined with the galvanized roof.Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalTalking about these shelters, currently, they consist of a dwelling (to stay) with semi-open space attached to it. But there is no connection between both spac­es. This resulted in disintegration in terms of activities in these houses. The whole process of design started with the question: What should be the nature of the design assembly, which will accommodate a temporal character and will occupy various numbers of people?Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalSave this picture!East and West FacadesSave this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalIn search of a typological prototype, the key elements of buildings like a base (platform), skeleton (metal framework), roof (corrugated GI sheet) and skin (concrete envelope) are generic materials, which formed, in a way as a design tool and design regulatory principle. While executing the idea of dwelling for tomorrow, the envelope is separated from the skin, which has created a gap to form the visual connection and physical connection with the surrounding. The security is taken care of by the perforated gate, which allows an uninterrupted visual connection. A utility and cooking space is accommodated in the center of the shelter, which separated the living and resting area. Where living space function as multiple spaces, dynamic in nature with the activities. It further extends to the court formed by the separation of the concrete envelope. While in the resting area court function as a connector between resting space and washroom.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section v2Save this picture!North FacadeThis place is influenced by old regional typology proposed on land parcel availed by the demise of trees. Manifestation began with the proposed block, which houses two spaces- living and resting which extends in court with concrete envelope around and a pantry in the center. Design evolved contains a narrow linear space, where verandah wraps around living block, which connects farm on both sides. This forms an identity of an assembly of house form termed as, ‘living –verandah’.Project gallerySee allShow lessMuseum of Troy / Yalin Architectural DesignSelected ProjectsThe Noor e Mobin G2 Primery School / FEA StudioSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq Ostwal+ 28Curated by María Francisca González Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAtelier Shantanu AutadeOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPohegaonIndiaPublished on February 15, 2019Cite: “Assembly and Rural House Form / Atelier Shantanu Autade” 15 Feb 2019.

A taste of New York

first_imgA front-runner in UK bagel manufacturing, Maple Leaf Bakery has invested in the redevelopment of its branded bagel range and hopes to widen its eating occasions. Georgi Gyton finds out moreThere are several stories about how the humble bagel came to be. Some believe the word bagel is derived from the German word ’buegel’, meaning stirrup. It has been said that, in 1683, a Viennese baker wanted to pay tribute to the King of Poland, who had saved the people of Austria from an onslaught of Turkish invaders, by producing a roll resembling a stirrup, in commemoration of the king’s favourite pastime. Others say bagels were invented much earlier in Poland, as a competitor to the bublik, a lean bread of wheat flour designed for Lent, and were a staple part of the Polish diet in the 16th and 17th centuries. All I know is that they are amazing when toasted and filled with bacon and cream cheese.Whatever their origins, bagels made it big in America after Jewish immigrants bought them over around the end of the 19th century. Bagel businesses thrived in New York City, and there was even a union dedicated to them. As with many things Americana, they also made their way across to UK shores, where companies such as Maple Leaf Bakery UK have driven the market considerably. Bagels are something the Americans are very passionate about, with shops such as H&H bagels in New York City seen as a destination outlet. The shop has even been used in number of major Hollywood movies. This passion is what Maple Leaf is hoping to instil in UK consumers.Maple Leaf make-upThe business, part of Canada Bread which is 89.8% owned by another Canadian firm Maple Leaf Foods is focused around three product groupings: bagels the origin of the business; and Viennoiserie and speciality, which were acquired businesses. It also produces some sliced and ISB bread. Its bagel business is concentrated in Rotherham, with Maple Leaf the first company on a commercial scale in the UK to use the traditional bagel-making process, which involves passing the dough through boiling water before baking it.Despite the growth of the bagel market over the past 10-15 years, the firm was keen to drive even faster growth of the market by getting consumers to eat bagels more frequently, and to encourage them to use them for a variety of different eating occasions not just breakfast. Following months of research, the redevelopment of its bagel recipe and, subsequently, the production process, the firm has announced it is to relaunch its New York Bakery Co brand in early-January 2011, backed up by a £2.4m marketing drive. The new-look and -taste bagel, along with revamped packaging and a new ad campaign, is designed to bring a taste of New York to Blighty.When marketing director Simon Foster joined Maple Leaf UK in January this year, he decided to find out what was working at the firm and what wasn’t. After visiting the plant in Rotherham, undertaking extensive consumer research and visiting the heartland of the bagel, New York City, he jokes that he probably knows more about bagels than is healthy. “We asked our customers for feedback on what we were doing well, and not so well, which helped us understand how we can get this business growing at the rate it deserves to,” says Foster.He says a key visit for him was the trip to New York, in order to find out and understand what New Yorkers’ views on bagels were. And what did he find out? Well, that New Yorkers have an “almost manic passion” for bagels, like the English alternative of a passionate real-ale drinker. He says they all had an opinion on where the best place to get a bagel was, and about what constitutes a truly authentic bagel. “If we’re being honest, we once knew what that was in the UK, but we’ve wandered from that path,” he adds.The product has been reformulated, so that it can be used un-toasted throughout its shelf-life, whereas the old bagel was only really suitable for toasting at the end of life, says Foster. The new recipe is around 10% heavier than the old one, the bagels are now fatter and have a smaller hole; the size of the hole being very important in determining the authenticity of the New York-style bagel, says Foster. According to Americans it should be no bigger than a dime (around 17mm in diameter), or it’s a reject. Incidentally, the smaller hole makes the bagel more suitable for sandwiches, as your filling will be less likely to fall out. It also makes the product a lot bolder, which helps tackle the challenge of visibility in the morning goods fixture, explains Foster.The new pack design features varied strips of colour on the front of the pack to represent the different flavours, and has a “tasteful New York red brick” style. It needs to maintain the aesthetic of a premium food product, but bolder colours will have more impact on-shelf, he explains. The firm has also invested heavily in the quality of the ingredients it uses, including much better-quality flour, he adds. The relaunched range will feature six varieties, available in a five-pack format: plain, cinnamon & raisin, sesame, multi-seeded, onion and a new addition wholemeal. Its top three sellers plain, cinnamon & raisin and sesame will also be available in four-packs.Research resultsThe firm carried out ’usage and attitude’ research, quizzing 600 consumers for 20 minutes each about bagels. “We asked them chapter and verse about their bagel consumption what? where? when? why? and how? We set out to investigate how to drive consumer value in all aspects of our product, from the recipe and packaging to promotion and advertising,” explains Foster. “We found out a number of things we didn’t know before. Firstly that consumers don’t have bagels top of mind when they walk into a food retailer. The usage and attitude research showed that 62% of bagel purchases were bought on impulse, compared to 38% of consumers who actually had them on their shopping list,” he explained. “Consumers will walk through the sliced bread aisle and buy whatever they need from there, then they will turn the corner into morning goods and, at that point, they’re shopping free-style, they’re open to suggestions, thinking about what they might have for the weekend brunch occasion.” Interestingly, the research showed that consumers weren’t put off by the cost, he says, it was just that they had forgotten about bagels as an option.Managing director Peter Baker reiterates: “It’s about getting bagels to consumers’ front-of-mind again, in an area that’s traditionally a discretionary purchase. It’s also about moving them from single usage to wider usage.” UK consumers tend to just eat them for breakfast, either toasted or not at all, so there is a big opportunity for growth, adds Foster. Across the pond, for example, they use them for lunch, as an alternative for sandwich bread, and they don’t just toast them, he says. “We need to educate UK consumers that bagels are great for lunch as well – it’s a huge opportunity.” Adds Baker: “The product we had in the past was not very amenable to do that, because it was much better toasted. We’ve now changed the product proposition so it is a much more acceptable lunchtime eat as well.”Foster says the bagel market is far from mature, and although he is realistic enough to know that not everyone is going to buy bagels as often as they buy sliced bread, he says if Maple Leaf can get those consumers already buying bagels, to buy them twice as often, then that would be a notable result. Bagel facts lBagels are bought by 23% of UK households, with 640 bagels eaten every minute in the UK (source: AC Nielsen Scantrack and Homescan, MAT to October 2010)lNew York Bakery Co bagels are bought by 15.2% of UK households, 3.5 times a yearlThe firm has 47.6% market share (by value) up 1.4% year-on-year (source AC Nielsen Scantrack and Homescan, MAT to October 2010) How bagel sales figures stack up According to the latest data from Kantar Worldpanel, plant and ISB bagel sales saw a 1.89% increase overall to £46.1m for the 52 weeks to 31 October 2010. Sales of plant bagels increased 3.6% yoy from £37.3m to £38.7m, while sales of ISB bagels, dipped 6.21% yoy from £7.9m to £7.4m over the same time frame.

Mason City council to consider grant for Music Man Square fundraising, loan for new sports bar

first_img=== The council will also consider a $30,000 Downtown Revitalization Loan to support the opening of a sports bar and grill in Southbridge Mall. The owners of Southbridge Mall have applied for the grant on behalf of The Sports Page to place the restaurant in the old Diamond Dave’s location at the south entrance of the mall, which has been empty since February 2001. Director of Development Services Steven Van Steenhuyse in a memo to city staff says the estimated total cost of the renovation is just under $114,500 and includes a complete renovation of the space, including a complete commercial kitchen, bar and lounge, restaurant setting, and virtual golf simulator. Funding from the Downtown Revitalization Loan program comes from tax increment financing revenues. The council meets at 7 o’clock tonight in the Mason City Room of the Public Library. MASON CITY — The City Council in Mason City tonight will consider a financial request from the board that oversees Music Man Square as part of their fundraising efforts as well as a loan to help with a rehabilitation project that would result in a sports bar being placed in Southbridge Mall. === In a letter addressed to the council, the Mason City Foundation’s board of directors says delays in the River City Renaissance project have added to the financial challenges they face and threaten Music Man Square’s long-term sustainability. The board says they are in the early stages of a fundraising campaign to bridge the time between now and the opening of the new hotel and conference center that’s part of the downtown project. The main source of philanthropic support for Music Man Square has been and continues to be the Meredith Willson Foundation in California, which the Mason City Foundation says has long expressed a desire to see financial support from the city and the community. The Mason City Foundation is asking the city for a $50,000 grant to help kick off their fundraising efforts to show the support of the community, with a matching grant being provided by the Meredith Willson Foundation. City Administrator Aaron Burnett in a memo to the council says the city has a projected reserve of about $180,000 in funds from hotel/motel tax proceeds and the council can allocate the funding as they see fit. Burnett adds that revenues into that fund continue to be strong and a grant would not impact any other commitments. last_img read more

New Generators To Power Emergency Shelters at Brookdale

first_imgThe generators are being funded through the Sandy Hazard Mitigation Grant Program’s Infrastructure Grant and Energy Allocation Initiative.According to the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), the project cost for the new generator at Collins Arena is $457,560. The dollar figure for improvements to the Warner Student Life Center is currently being reviewed, though anticipated to be around the same amount.The estimated date of completion for the generator installation is December 2017, said MCSO public information officer Cynthia Scott. With these new generators, county OEM ser vices are anticipating the two buildings at Brookdale will be an integral piece of the Monmouth County Emergency Operations Plan.Scott said Brookdale was chosen as the site because the college “is located outside of any flood zones, the campus is accessible, and the Collins Arena and Student Life Center are capable of holding the largest number of evacuees in one location, thus allowing Monmouth County to maximize its resources.”Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden called Brookdale “an ideal location” for emergency shelters. Other locations are being planned, according to Scott.After Super Storm Sandy slammed the Jersey Shore, Monmouth University was used as the county’s evacuation shelter. Nearly 1,500 people flocked to the university in West Long Branch for relief.The Robert J. Collins Arena is the home court for the Brookdale Jersey Blues, and is also used for high school graduations and other large-scale events. Capacity inside is capped around 2,000 in the 23,000-square-foot event space, according to Brookdale. A four-lane track wraps around the length of the arena, spanning 1/10 of a mile.The Warner Student Life Center, which opened in 2008, is an 81,000-square-foot complex only a few hundred feet away from the arena. It houses the community college’s 335-seat cafeteria, bookstore, numerous large seminar rooms and smaller offices on the bottom floor.Murphy said Brookdale and Monmouth County jointly applied for and received the grant funding for the emergency generators in fiscal year 2015.Throughout Monmouth County, 50 total projects have benefitted from the two Sandy Hazard Mitigation Grants, with $11,457,031 being allocated to energy and infrastructure improvements.On April 13, the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders unanimously passed a resolution approving a Memorandum of Understanding between the MCSO and Brookdale for the community college to become both an Emergency Evacuation Center and a Community Reception Center.This article was first published in the April 20-27, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. By Jay Cook | LINCROFT – In the event another major disaster like 2012’s Super Storm Sandy strikes Monmouth County, two buildings on Brookdale Community College’s Lincroft campus will be a refuge for residents.Thanks to federal grants, permanent emergency generators will soon be installed at the Robert J. Collins Arena, and also at the Warner Student Life Center, both on the campus’ southern edge. The college is accessible from Phalanx Road and County Road 520.“In emergency situations, such as we saw after Super Storm Sandy, members of our community often need guidance, support and a safe place to go,” Brookdale president Maureen Murphy said in a statement to The Two River Times. “While we hope we never see a disaster like Sandy again, we are happy to be part of an initiative to provide a safe space for county residents.”last_img read more

New year, new schools for Gauteng

first_img13 January 2010 One-and-a-half hours – that’s how long it would have taken learners from Lawley to get to school were it not for Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe’s drive to get a new school up and running in the suburb in the south of Johannesburg. Lawley Secondary School in Lawley opened on the first day of the 2011 school calendar, 12 January, with 200-plus learners from the local community. It is the first secondary school in the suburb and one of seven new schools opened across the province. “This school is a demonstration of government working together,” said Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane, who attended the opening along with Motlanthe, Johannesburg Executive Mayor Amos Masondo, and Gauteng Education MEC Barbara Creecy. After residents pointed out the need for a secondary school in the area, Motlanthe committed himself to ensuring that the need was met. It took only eight weeks to set up the school, which is made up of prefabricated buildings. Creecy spoke of the “Motlanthe magic” regarding Soshanguve Technical Secondary School, which improved its results by 50% after Motlanthe intervened. She hoped this same magic would stay with Lawley Secondary to ensure it produced 100% pass rates in the future. “This community has an excellent opportunity to set the standard for the school. You have a blank sheet, no baggage, so you can move straight to becoming a school of excellence. Those who will join the school in the future will measure themselves against the standard set by the learners in this court,” said Motlanthe. He appealed to teachers, students and parents to perform their roles to the best of their ability. “The future of the school depends on what both students and teachers put in.” Skumbuzo Sibanda, a maths and social science teacher, said there was a desperate need for a secondary school in Lawley. “It is the first non-school fee paying secondary school in the area and it cuts down on the great distances that the children had to travel to school every day. We are ready and willing to take the school to new heights.” In his vote of thanks, Masondo urged educators to arrive on time, not neglect their duties and refrain from abusing their learners. As to the learners, Masondo reminded them of their responsibilities to arrive at school on time, do their school work and respect their educators. Grade Eight pupil Mojalefe Masa said: “I’m happy to start my first day of high school at a new school. If the school wasn’t here I would have to go to Ennerdale and it would take me one hour 30 minutes every day.”Pupil numbers While there are only 200 children and 11 teachers at present, the school is able to accommodate many more. Creecy credits this to the fact that many parents had already enrolled their children at schools in neighbouring Lenasia and Ennerdale. “Now that the school is up and running we can say to the community, ‘Look it’s here,’ and start transferring those learners who are in Lenasia and Ennerdale to Lawley Secondary,” she added. She explained that while the government was unable to commit to a brick and mortar structure replacing the prefabs any time soon, residents must note that “the structures are insulated, they are SABS approved and have a 20-year life span … There are windows, doors and black boards. The structures serve the purposes for which they are meant.” Gauteng has a shortage of 212 schools, which Creecy accredits to the large number of people who migrate to the province. There were 13 other schools at different levels of completion that were to be opened this year, she said. While some were permanent structures, others, like Lawley, were temporary prefabricated structures. Both Creecy and Mokonyane stressed the importance of these prefab schools, which can be set up quickly and accommodate the thousands of learners needing a place to study. “We need to look at the use of alternative structures in the future … It is a myth that permanent structures must be brick and mortar. There are other schools here in Gauteng that have prefabricated classrooms as a means of additional classroom space,” Mokonyane pointed out. Creecy confirmed that there were 2 000 mobile classrooms on order to be delivered over the next few months, which would satisfy the high need for supplementary classroom space at existing schools and make up many of the new schools to be opened this year.
