This replacement dwelling is set into a north facing hill side with panoramic views of Dublin city. The site is bounded on the south by a wooded landscape. The house is constructed using a prefabricated timber-frame panel system incorporating full-height glazing affording views to the north, while light penetration from the south is manipulated through roof lights and strategic openings.  Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe building plays between sunken spaces and framed views to the landscape. The typical spatial hierarchy is inverted; providing sleeping accommodation on the lower level while living spaces occupy the upper floor. The lower floor is arranged around a stone terrace to the North and a sunken area to the south, cut into the hillside, which allows south light to enter the space and informs the upper level entrance. The front door is approached under a cantilevered overhang and the sunken courtyard is passed, providing a view to below, before entering the building.Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe form is articulated by a folding plane orientated about a north south axis, which responds to the topography of the site to morph between; floor, terrace, wall and roof plates at all levels.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe lower floor is segregated into separate bedroom and bathroom cells giving views across the hillside to Dublin Bay. The longer axis runs from North to South in to the hillside. To the north a glazed corridor, provides views to the East, ordered by the rhythm of the timber frame structure. This corridor shields and provides access to the bedrooms and bathroom cells. To the south a playroom and studio space are located with a concealed staircase to the rear which provides access to the hillside at the upper level of the driveway. The short axis runs across the hill to the West and has full-height North-facing glazed doors which open directly on to the stone terrace.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe upper floor is a L-shaped in plan to provide an upper terrace which further accentuates the views to the North from the living and dining space and provides an expansive outdoor social space. An additional smaller outdoor terrace is provided off the kitchen by a balcony which protrudes to the east. The configuration of the upper floor identifies the main living area as a complete open space which can be adapted by sliding screens to divide the living and dining areas and pivot doors which fold away to reveal the playroom. This allows the house to function and adapt as required by occupancy. The sliding screens are stored in a central core element which contains the central internal staircase and a fireplace. The more serviceable spaces, of utility, and bathrooms are discreetly positioned and concealed within the space and timber shelving walls are detailed to provide functional storage while informing the spatial arrangement.Save this picture!© Paul TierneyTwo storey voids make a physical connection between spaces at both levels andnatural light is brought deep into the building through the careful positioning of high level windows at double height spaces and large rooflights over stairwells. Smaller windows are used in more intimate spaces to create framed views of the landscape beyond.Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe timber frame structure is wrapped externally with a proprietary insulation and rendering system. High performance thermal and solar-reflecting glazing in timber frames slide open to make a direct connection between the internal and external spaces. A wood burning stove and boiler were installed and all internal spaces are provided with under floor heating. A heat exchange system is used to provide fresh air to the interior.Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe client had a strong desire to use timber frame construction to provide a spacious family home on an exposed but scenic hillside site. The design brief was to provide an environmentally sustainable building in a resilient built form informed by its context.The design intent was to provide a building of architectural quality informed by best practice in lifetime and sustainable design with a robust spatial hierarchy.     Project gallerySee allShow lessBroadcom Yakum / Setter ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThese 15 Second Videos Teach You “How to Architect”Misc Sharelast_img read more

The bench comprising Justices UU Lalit and Vineet Saran observed that, as their very selection and appointments were found to be illegal and invalid, no other advantage can be conferred upon the concerned candidates.”In our view, considering the fact that the very selection and appointments were found to be illegal and invalid, no other advantage can be conferred upon the concerned candidates”, the bench obseved In 2014, the Tripura High Court had terminated the appointment of 10,323 government school teachers on the ground that the selection was contrary to the provisions of the National Council for Teacher Education Act, 1993 and the relevant policies and that the appointments were arbitrary and illegal. It was found that the selection was irrational and illogical and that it suffered from nepotism and favouritism. In 2017, the Supreme Court modified the High Court’s order, directing the state Government to complete a fresh selection process on or before December 31, 2017. The bench allowed those teachers appointed earlier to apply again, and continue till the completion of the fresh selection process(Tanmoy Nath vs State of Tripura).8,882 ad-hoc teachers were working in the School Education Department and in terms of the directions issued by the Supreme Court in the decision Tanmoy Nath vs State of Tripura, were terminated after the Academic Session 2019-2020 was over. Some of them challenged this termination before the High Court of Tripura. The High court dismissed the petitions observing that petitioners are seeking review of the judgment rendered in Tanmoy Nath (supra) which is not permissible in law, more so on the doctrine of merger.While dismissing the appeals, the Apex Court bench noted that the legality and validity of the entire selection process and the appointments of about 10,323 teachers were gone into in detail in Tanmoy Nath case. It said:”The findings rendered by the High Court and its conclusions were accepted by this Court while dismissing the appeals arising therefrom. Though the services of the concerned teachers were initially protected only upto 31.12.2017, accepting the plea made on behalf of the State, the concerned date was extended from time to time. It is a matter of record that the services of such candidates now stand terminated. In terms of the directions issued in Tanmoy Nath and appeal arising therefrom, the State is obliged to conduct selection process in which the concerned candidates will be entitled to participate with age relaxation. The age relaxation has now been afforded by the State in all selections till 31.03.2023, which benefit is quite adequate and proper.” The court further observed that the attempt on part of the State in offering certain alternate employment is not to degrade the teachers but some solace is being offered even in cases where the candidates do not succeed in the selections to the posts of teachers. While dismissing the appeals, the bench further said:”The candidates, if they are otherwise competent and eligible, will certainly have every opportunity till 31.03.2023 to get selected for the posts of teachers in the State and by way of additional benefit those who are unsuccessful in such attempts may retain the alternate employment. In our view, it does not amount to any degradation.”Case name: Ajoy Debbarma and others vs. State of Tripura and othersCase no.: CIVIL APPEAL NO.2868 OF 2020Coram: Justices UU Lalit and Vineet SaranCounsel: Senior Advocates Rajeev Dhavan, Kapil Sibal, Colin Gonsalves, Jaideep Gupta, Maninder SinghClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more
