Shaila Patel House is built on a plot area of 2263 m2.  The brief was to design a house with a possibility where three generations could live together as one unit, while also allowing independent domains for each. Therefore, the core design focus was to create an interesting interplay of private spaces with that of the living spaces which would permit one part of the family to have privacy, while the other part of the family would be actively using the living spaces.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe building uses natural brick and exposed concrete as the basic external finish with plastered walls in the internal spaces. The house is spatially organized on three levels. There are four bedrooms, one main living area, family living and dining areas with large veranda facing the backyard garden and a party lounge with home theatre in the basement. The house is oriented with all openings facing north and south and more solid surfaces facing east and west.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe entrance court is accessed from the street which has parking garages, security cabin, access to the rear garden and access to the servant quarters.  The north facing entrance porch welcomes one into the house through the double height vestibule. Once inside, one is surprised with the view of the garden. This view is accentuated by the presence of a linear water body and plants guiding the view to the outside while the space allows for a pause point at the entrance into the house. The vestibule connects to a corridor which is oriented east -west with spaces flanking on either side facing south or north.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe ground floor has two major domains. On the left is a private living area connected to the bedroom with both spaces opening onto a private courtyard and a veranda facing the main garden. On the right are the living areas including the kitchen and other utilities. The main living area is a double height space which opens onto the garden on the south through a large veranda and has a smaller living space facing the north. The dining space has an open wooden deck accessed through a small veranda facing the garden.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaSave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe staircase is located centrally with access to the basement and the bedrooms on the first floor. The basement has a family lounge and a home theatre which opens out into a sunken courtyard with a separate access from the ground floor. This courtyard provides natural light and ventilation to the basement spaces making them comfortable providing a break out space for the activities. The first floor has three bedrooms with a study and a separate spiral staircase to access the service terraces. The master bedroom opens onto the south facing garden through a large balcony. The rest of the bedrooms open on to the north façade with large openings.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaProject gallerySee allShow lessFengyang Road Alleyway-house Gallery Office / Atelier ZerosSelected ProjectsThe Bar Ji / Daylab studioSelected Projects Share Photographs ArchDaily India Projects CopyHouses•Ahmedabad, India Save this picture!© Dhrupad Shukla+ 18Curated by Clara Ott Share Shaila Patel House / Groundwork Architecture “COPY” 2017 Architects: Groundwork Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Structure: CopyAbout this officeGroundwork ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAhmedabadIndiaPublished on May 18, 2019Cite: “Shaila Patel House / Groundwork Architecture” 17 May 2019.

Police arrest cyber-dissident Zhang Lin

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediately release of pro-democracy activist and cyber-dissident Zhang Lin, who was arrested on 29 January in Bengbu (in Anhui province, west of Shanghai) for posting articles on various websites. Police told his wife he would be detained for two weeks.”We firmly condemn the harassment of pro-democracy intellectuals that has been taking place since the death of former Prime Minister Zhao Ziyang,” the press freedom organization said.The two weeks of detention imposed on Zhang is an administrative measure often applied in cases of disturbance of the peace. In his case it is clearly intended as a warning that he should stop speaking out and publishing articles.A dozen policemen searched Zhang’s home on 6 February and confiscated his computer. One of the police officers reportedly told his wife that “he will not be treated nicely” if he continued to write.Zhang is a well-known activist. He often posts his articles on websites linked to the Falun Gong spiritual movement such as and, as well as, a website about human rights in China. In an interview a few days before his arrest for the magazine Epoch Times, which was also posted on its website, he described Zhao as a “sincere man” and “unique Chinese leader.”Zhang was imprisoned from 1989 to 1991, and again from 1995 to 1998, when he was sentenced to hard labour. He then left for the United States to pursue his political activities, but reentered China illegally a few months later and was rearrested a third time, at which point he was sent to a labour camp until 2001. In all, he has spent eight years in detention. to go further Cyber-dissident Zhang Lin was arrested on 29 January in Bengbu (in Anhui province) after posting articles on various websites.
