Set within the vineyards and close to the center of town, the site for the house is a large plot of land dotted with full grown trees and vineyards.Save this picture!© Joe Fletcher PhotographyThe project consists of two houses connected with glass. Each house is protected from a busy road with two ‘L’ Shaped walls – one is stone and one is cedar. A number of pieces behind these walls are arranged together around courtyards and terraces. In turn giving rise to a sequence of individual gardens, each with their own individual ambience – gardens set among other limitless gardens. A system of slender spaces act like paths connecting the gardens, courtyards, and interior spaces, each embracing and respecting the landscape.Save this picture!© Joe Fletcher PhotographyThe entrance garden is conceived as a porch-like atrium which leads to a solid redwood door crafted from the only tree removed from the site. This door opens to a small glass foyer which connects the two main walls of the house. To one side is an interior gateway through a cedar wall and to the other side is a portal through a thick stone wall. The gateway opens to a garden and guestrooms and the portal opens onto the family art collection and main house. The main house opens to vineyards on the valley floor with 270 degree views of the surrounding Mayacamas Mountains, Mt. St. Helena, and Stags Leap beyond. Guestrooms are through the cedar gateway and open to the southern views of vineyards, Stone Mountain, Mt. Vedeer and the city nearby. Meanwhile the utility areas are hidden away in front with easy access while increasing the buffer between the house and busy road and the house.Save this picture!© Joe Fletcher PhotographySave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Joe Fletcher PhotographyLarge eaves create both a place to enjoy the outdoors all year around and protection from the summer sun, while letting in the right amount of winter sun deep into the house. The envelope of the house enhances the control of the site while providing a sense of privacy and protection while juxtaposed with large openings to the surrounding landscape. The materialization of this project reflects its rural setting, while softening its urban attributes of shelter in front and massive openings behind those urban attributes and human nature.   Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Joe Fletcher PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessGianandrea Barreca Receives the NewSchool’s Global Design and Innovation AwardArchitecture NewsSustainability on Roosevelt Island: How Morphosis and Arup Are Making Cornell’s Bloo…Interviews Sharelast_img read more

Significantly, the Bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee remarked, “The judiciary should be prompt to ensure that all allegations of intrusion into the domain of the animals which result in allegations as to commission of offences gain prompt attention, requisite and timely adjudication.” The Court issued this direction to all the Courts subordinate to it, in view of the fact that presently, there are 1140 cases pending under the forest laws before the courts below. Thus, the Court directed all the subordinate courts where such matters are pending, to forthwith proceed on a war footing in all such matters. Importantly, the Court further added, “Since the victims in all those cases are not ‘State’ as is understood in the Constitution and the laws but primarily the animals who are voice-less creatures who cannot be represented before any adjudicating authority except by the duly authorised representative of the State Government.” Further, the Court directed the Registrar General to ensure that a circular following HC’s order is issued within a week requiring all courts below to proceed with an action in the direction indicated in the Court’s order. Alerting the courts below, the Court also added, “It is the required norms in terms of the Constitution and the law that except in exceptional situations, such cases shall not be adjourned and also to take requisite coercive steps for non-attendance.” The Conservator of Forests, Wildlife Headquarters, and Chief Wildlife Warden, West Bengal who was appearing before the Court, presented a report indicating the following concerns:- Though there is a legal cell in the department, they have a shortage of ground staff which is a great drawback in proper management of adequate policing in the forest through the forest guards. There are clear cases of illicit activities and even illicit trade in animals including birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes etc. In this backdrop, the Court pointed out that the very use of the word ‘warden’ in the nomenclature of the office of the wildlife warden and the chief wildlife warden clearly indicates the role of those officers as that of guardians of the animal wealth. With the aforesaid, the Court adjourned the matter to March 26, 2021 within which time, a further affidavit had been sought by the Court from the conservator of forests disclosing the volume of illegal activities in trade or otherwise affecting the animal wealth and further streamlining what could be suggested by the department. The Court has also left it open for the officers of the wildlife sector and the forest sector to place such suggestions which, according to them, will improve the forest management and the wildlife management in the State of West Bengal.
