The House 1559/36D is 836 sqm residential project in one of the privileged locations of Chandigarh flanked with green belt on one side and a view to the Shivaliks, juxtapose against an urban landscape. Our primary design response was to encourage the occupant of the space to be in a constant dialogue with either nature or art and sometimes with both. In response to David Craib’s quote “Design should never say, Look at me! It should always say, Look at this!” the most irrefutable thing was to raise the common leisure zone to the top of the house.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe terrace is morphed into an observation deck as it captures a snap of the hills. The canopy of trees from the green belt gives an illusion of an infinite green to the terrace garden. It is this introduction of raw greens that makes the swimming pool sensual and it becomes a part of something more than a physical activity. The way design responds to nature is sometimes almost too literal like the stone laying around the existing mango trees and at other times it is in the form of art left to the imagination of the occupant. There is a construction sincerity that prevails as levels interplay with each other to balance the depth of the pool with terrace level. The interiors follow the same logic of purity.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjA thoughtful experiential sequence in the below floors, meanders one through the living spaces on the ground. Ones existentially is felt by the translucent partitions. It aids as a visual invitation to spaces above and beyond you. Nature almost always sees you naked through the large glass doors and windows. Elements like a carved courtyard, glass bricks, louvers, pergolas, and other openings catalyze dialogue between the observer and observed via the play of light, shade, ventilation and the colors of nature.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe ground floor plan is a drama between three zones. It grades from public space like the great room and living area ambiguously interlocked with semi-private areas of the kitchen, dining lounge and family lounge that finally meets the private bedrooms at the rear end. The first floor is a Lego arrangement of three bedrooms each having its own private terrace. The spatial quality of these terraces is unique to one another. The master bedroom is intentionally a trapezoidal plan to re-orient the room for best vista and re-emphasize the importance of bio-philia. The bed is placed in the center to allow for a free flow of energy along borders but more than that it gives an ode to the wall that makes a room.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjAt some parts, flooring of most everyday spaces – the bedroom and the terrace merges, blurring the boundaries between what is inside and what we consider outside. At parts, existentially is further exaggerated by mirror mosaic tiles on ceilings, in chandeliers or at times as wall-art where the reflection of you becomes nature. The observer becomes the subject of their own observation. It is an attempt to redefine nature which leaves the occupant cognizant of his/her own presence.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjProject gallerySee allShow lessReception Center of Chengdu Xindu Cultural Center / DAGA ArchitectsSelected ProjectsVehicle Assessment Drive-Thru / STUDIO MOVESelected Projects Share Photographs Houses Continental Foundations CopyHouses•Chandigarh, India Lighting Consultant: Lead Architects: Badrinath Kaleru, Prerna kaleru “COPY” Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940345/house-1559-36-d-studio-ardete Clipboard House 1559/36 D / Studio Ardete CopyAbout this officeStudio ArdeteOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChandigarhOn FacebookIndiaPublished on May 28, 2020Cite: “House 1559/36 D / Studio Ardete” 27 May 2020.

Post-COVID-19 study provides framework for mortality planning

first_imgNew research measuring the impact of COVID-19 on the future life expectancy of older people in the surviving population has been published by The Pensions Institute.The paper – The Impact of COVID-19 on Future Higher-Age Mortality – focuses on England and Wales and assesses the implications of the pandemic for pension funds, insurance companies and academics who model and measure longevity risk. It also provides a framework for analysing future data on the virus.Its authors are Professor Andrew Cairns, department of actuarial mathematics and statistics, Heriot-Watt University; Professor David Blake, Cass Business School and director of the Pensions Institute; Amy Kessler, head of longevity risk transfer, Prudential Retirement; and Marsha Kessler, CEO of M Kessler Group, a speciality consulting firm focused on data-driven transformation in healthcare.While other COVID-19 research covers the spread and control of the virus, the authors of the study believe it is the first to cover mortality of the surviving population after the pandemic has abated. Research has found that COVID-19 seems to increase each cohort’s short-term mortality risk by a common multiplicative factorThey observed that some surviving patients who needed intensive care could acquire a new impairment such as kidney damage, which will reduce their life expectancy.Furthermore, many people in lockdown have not sought timely medical assessments for potential new illnesses such as cancer, with the consequence that mortality rates unrelated to COVID-19 could increase in future.Other indirect consequences include increased alcohol consumption, and poorer health and even suicides as a result of long-term unemployment.However, some people may retain healthier lifestyles adopted during lockdown, which could increase their life expectancy.PredictionsThe authors said their research provides not only data, but a simple and flexible modelling framework which will be effective using future data, without the need to change existing models.They also predict a total of 80,000 COVID-19-related deaths in England and Wales. However, the model’s flexibility means it can be applied to different levels of such deaths.Blake told IPE: “It can also be applied to different European countries. While the different parameters will have to be changed to match the circumstances of each country, the model itself does not have to be changed.”Such parameters could include patterns of infection and death rates at different ages, and the years of life lost by those who die from COVID-19, again at different ages.Kessler told IPE: “Whether for valuations, pricing or the underwriting of risk, the industry has been waiting for this kind of framework.”She continued: “There are three major challenges in working with data relating to the pandemic: adjusting experience data from the pandemic period; making assumptions about anti-selection risk going forward; and assessing volatility to come. The great thing is this research addresses all three challenges.”The research is available here.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here. The paper’s key finding is that COVID-19 seems to increase each cohort’s short-term mortality risk by a common multiplicative factor. In other words, if mortality rates rise temporarily at 10% in relative terms at one age, they will also rise by about 10% at other ages.Blake told IPE: “Unlike other research, our finding is that there is some early acceleration of death and that those who die would likely have done so within, say, a few years from other causes such as respiratory disease. That should, therefore, lead to fewer deaths in the short term from other causes.”The researchers also examined how socio-economic differences impact COVID-19 mortality.They found that once they controlled for regional differences in mortality rates, COVID-19 deaths in both the most and least deprived groups are proportional to the all-cause mortality of these groups.However, the groups in between have lower COVID-19 deaths – by around 10-15% – compared with their all-cause mortality.“The reason for this is not clear, although it might be because they were better able to adapt to lockdown and maintain more effective social distancing than the other groups,” said Blake.And current behavioural responses to the pandemic were also examined.last_img read more
