House Lessans / McGonigle McGrath

first_imgPhotographs:  Aidan McGrath Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathText description provided by the architects. The site is located in the gently rolling landscape of County Down. An existing assembly of barn and shed with double yard were the remnants of a small farmstead, the original farmhouse now a neighbouring plot. Approached by an overgrown lane, the enclosure created by the buildings and low walls only became apparent when at the yards, the predominant view from the lane being of the drumlins beyond.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Aidan McGrathThe brief was for a simple dwelling to meet the accommodation needs of a semi-retired couple and their children, now only occasional visitors. The connection to place and to the language of the derelict but elegant barn one of a number of defined objectives. Planning permission already existed for a new dwelling on the site.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathThe house is conceived as 2 simple elements arranged in relation to the retained and re-used barn, to create the enclosure associated with vernacular clusters, and to permit visual and physical connections to the rolling landscape to the south and west. The first element, containing only bedrooms, is positioned to create the sloping arrival yard, and an enclosed space to the rear. The second living element is rotated to address the view. The entrance is positioned between these elements and allows the visitor the experience of both enclosure and landscape.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathForms and materiality are derived from the language of local corrugated agricultural outbuildings, simple pitched roofs of zinc on masonry walls creating courts and yards, referenced to the datum set by the barn, all rising from an embedded concrete plinth. Internally, generous volumes reflect the existing barn and track the external forms, and views to the landscape are carefully framed. Subtle shifts in level separate the functions.Construction methods were necessarily basic, and detailing is precise and restrained.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessShiye Art Space / M.A.O.Selected ProjectsArchitecture For Exhibition: Lectures And Internships With International Architectur…Lecture Series Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918491/house-lessans-mcgonigle-mcgrath Clipboard House Lessans / McGonigle McGrath Manufacturers: D-Line, The Rooflight Company, VMZINC Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918491/house-lessans-mcgonigle-mcgrath Clipboard “COPY” Year:  “COPY” United Kingdom CopyHouses•Saintfield, United Kingdom Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House Lessans / McGonigle McGrathSave this projectSaveHouse Lessans / McGonigle McGrath Architects: McGonigle McGrath Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Houses Projects 2019 Save this picture!© Aidan McGrath+ 25Curated by Paula Pintos Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeMcGonigle McGrathOfficeFollowProductsSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaintfieldUnited KingdomPublished on June 10, 2019Cite: “House Lessans / McGonigle McGrath” 10 Jun 2019.

A tiny farm cottage is ment to be come into an occasional appartment through a complete rehabilitation. In this small intervention crystallizes an attitude that seeks to identify rural morphologies and join them at the rate of development of this environment. Urban planning instruments can often endanger these morphologies, leading to the destruction of sometimes secular constructions by increasing building rights.Save this picture!© Guillermo Avanzini AlcibarSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Guillermo Avanzini AlcibarSuch is the case of this plot, intended to locate a three-story building that has nothing to do with the scale of the urban fabric of the town of Ojacastro. The owners’ sensitive criteria, together with the willingness of the City Council to allow the intervention, have managed to stop the degradation of this corner of the town avoiding the loss of heritage that would have ment the execution of the urban planning.Save this picture!© Guillermo Avanzini AlcibarThe inside is conceived as an habitable piece of furniture: a light balloon-frame house is built, filling the space between the massive stone walls. Reduced surface requires the entire house program to be developed in a single space. Foldable furniture, a wall bed, a kitchen hiding wardrobe, storage, home appliances… All of them hidden in the thick walls, but ready to be used when ever needed.

Batra vs Taruna Batra.”In the event, shared household belongs to any relative of the husband with whom in a domestic relationship the woman has  lived, the conditions mentioned in Section 2(s) are satisfied and the said house will become a shared household. “, the Court said.The bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, R. Subhash Reddy and MR Shah observed the definition of ‘shared household’ given in Section 2(s) of the Act cannot be read to mean that it can only be that household which is household of the joint family of which husband is a member or in which husband of the aggrieved person has a share.In S.R. Batra vs Taruna Batra , the Supreme Court bench of Justices SB Sinha and M.Katju had rejected the contention that the definition of shared household includes a household where the person aggrieved lives or at any stage had lived in a domestic relationship. It held that the wife is only entitled to claim a right to residence in a shared household, and a `shared household’ would only mean the house belonging to or taken on rent by the husband, or the house which belongs to the joint family of which the husband is a member. The court had further observed that claim for alternative accommodation can only be made against the husband and not against the husband’s in-laws or other relatives.Background In this case, Satish Chander Ahuja filed a Suit against his daughter in law [ the sole-defendant ] for mandatory and permanent injunction and also for recovery of damages/mesne profit. In the plaint, he pleaded that defendant has filed a complaint under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 in which interim order directing the plaintiff not to alienate and not to dispossess the defendant without order of the competent court has been passed. He further pleaded that the status of occupation of defendant as a daughter-in-law during subsistence of marriage with the son could be said to be permissive in nature and defendant is not entitled to claim a right of residence against the plaintiff, i.e., her father-in-law who has no obligation to maintain her during the lifetime of her husband. In the written statement, the daughter in law claimed that the suit property is a shared household as per provision of Section 2(s) of the Act, 2005, and thus she has right to stay/reside in the shared household. The trial court decreed the suit filed by Ahuja by allowing his application filed under Order XII Rule 6 CPC., taking note of the admission made by the defendant in her pleadings filed in the domestic violence case that the plaintiff to be the owner of the suit property. The High Court, while setting aside the Trial Court judgment, observed that question the suit could not have been simply decreed by the Trial Court on the basis of the title without weighing the effect of the statutory right in favour of the the daughter in law. The High Court, remanded the case back to Trial Court by issuing some directions.In this appeal before the Supreme Court against the High Court order, the plaintiff placed reliance on Batra judgment to contend that the premises is not a shared household since the husband neither has any share in the suit premises nor suit premises is a joint family property. The issues considered by the bench included the following [The consideration of other issues in this appeal and factual background have been dealt with in another report].:(1) Whether definition of shared household under Section 2(s) of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 has to be read to mean that shared household can only be that household which is household of joint family or in which husband of the aggrieved person has a share? (2) Whether judgment in S.R. Batra and Anr. Vs. Taruna Batra, (2007) 3 SCC 169 has not correctly interpreted the provision of Section 2(s) of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 and does not lay down a correct law? Referring to the words “lives or at any stage has lived in a domestic relationship”, the bench said that it has to be given its normal and purposeful meaning. The court also, referring to precedents, observed that the use of both the expressions “means and includes” in Section 2(s) clearly indicate the legislative intent that the definition is exhaustive and shall cover only those which fall within the purview of definition and no other. The bench observed:From the above definition, following is clear:- (i) it is not requirement of law that aggrieved person may either own the premises jointly or singly or by tenanting it jointly or singly; (ii) the household may belong to a joint family of which the respondent is a member irrespective of whether the respondent or the aggrieved person has any right, title or interest in 53 the shared household; and (iii) the shared household may either be owned or tenanted by the respondent singly or jointly.”The living of woman in a household has to refer to a living which has some permanency. Mere fleeting or casual living at different places shall not make a shared household. The intention of the parties and the nature of living including the nature of household have to be looked into to find out as to whether the parties intended to treat the premises as shared household or not. As noted above, Act 2005 was enacted to give a higher right in favour of woman. The Act, 2005 has been enacted to provide for more effective protection of the rights of the woman who are victims of violence of any kind occurring within the family. The Act has to be interpreted in a manner to effectuate the very purpose and object of the Act. Section 2(s) read with Sections 17 and 19 of Act, 2005 grants an entitlement in favour of the woman of the right of residence under the shared household irrespective of her having any legal interest in the same or not.”The court also observed that use of the expression “at any stage has lived” to protect the women from denying the benefit of right to live in a shared household on the ground that on the date when application is filed, she was excluded from possession of the house or temporarily absent. The court said that the object was not that wherever the aggrieved person has lived with the relatives of husband, all such houses shall become shared household, which is not the legislative intent. Disagreeing with the Batra judgment observations, the bench said that apprehensions expressed by the bench were not true. The court said:The shared household is contemplated to be the household, which is a dwelling place of aggrieved person in present time. When we look into the different kinds of orders or reliefs, which can be granted on an application filed by aggrieved person, all orders contemplate providing protection to the women in reference to the premises in which aggrieved person is or was in possession. Our above conclusion is further fortified by statutory scheme as delineated by Section 19 of the Act, 2005. In event, the definition of shared household as occurring in Section 2(s) is read to mean that all houses where the 60 aggrieved person has lived in a domestic relationship alongwith the relatives of the husband shall become shared household, there will be number of shared household, which was never contemplated by the legislative scheme. The entire Scheme of the Act is to provide immediate relief to the aggrieved person with respect to the shared household where the aggrieved person lives or has lived. As observed above, the use of the expression “at any stage has lived” was only with intent of not denying the protection to aggrieved person merely on the ground that aggrieved person is not living as on the date of the application or as on the date when Magistrate concerned passes an order under Section 19. The apprehension expressed by this Court in paragraph 26 in S.R. Batra Vs. Taruna Batra (supra), thus, was not true apprehension and it is correct that in event such interpretation is accepted, it will lead to chaos and that was never the legislative intent. We, thus, are of the considered opinion that shared household referred to in Section 61 2(s) is the shared household of aggrieved person where she was living at the time when application was filed or in the recent past had been excluded from the use or she is temporarily absent.The observation of this Court in S.R. Batra Vs. Taruna Batra (supra) that definition of shared household in Section 2(s) is not very happily worded and it has to be interpreted, which is sensible and does not lead to chaos in the society also does not commend us. The definition of shared household is clear and exhaustive definition as observed by us. The object and purpose of the Act was to grant a right to aggrieved person, a woman of residence in shared household. The interpretation which is put by this Court in S.R. Batra Vs. Taruna Batra (supra) if 64 accepted shall clearly frustrate the object and purpose of the Act. We, thus, are of the opinion that the interpretation of definition of shared household as put by this Court in S.R. Batra Vs. Taruna Batra (supra) is not correct interpretation and the said judgment does not lay down the correct law.Domestic violence in this country is rampant The court observed that the right of occupation of matrimonial home, was not so far part of the statutory law in India until the Domestic Violence Act of 2005 was enacted. It said:The progress of any society depends on its ability to protect and promote the rights of its women. Guaranteeing equal rights and privileges to women by the Constitution of India had marked the step towards the transformation of the status of the women in this country. The domestic violence in this country is rampant and several women encounter violence in some form or the other or almost every day, however, it is the least reported form of cruel behavior. A woman resigns her fate to the never ending cycle of enduring violence and discrimination as a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a partner or a single woman in her lifetime. This non-retaliation by women coupled with the absence of laws addressing women’s issues, ignorance of the existing laws enacted for women and societal attitude makes the women vulnerable. The reason why most cases of domestic violence are never reported is due to the social stigma of the society and the attitude of the women themselves, where women are expected to be subservient, not just to their male counterparts but also to the male’s relativesRights Under DV Act Can Be Claimed In Civil CourtsIn facts of the case, the court held that the claim of the defendant that suit property is shared household and she has right to reside in the house ought to have been considered by the Trial Court and non-consideration of the claim/defence is nothing but defeating the right, which is protected by Act, 2005. It said:”As per Section 26, any relief available under Sections 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 of the Act, 2005 may also be sought in any legal proceeding, before a civil court, family court or a criminal court being the aggrieved person. Thus, the defendant is entitled to claim relief under Section 19 in suit, which has been filed by the plaintiff. Section 26 empowers the aggrieved person to claim above relief in Civil Courts also.”Case: SATISH CHANDER AHUJA vs. SNEHA AHUJA [CIVIL APPEAL NO.2483 of 2020 ] Coram: Justices Ashok Bhushan, R.
