The existing structure was a 30 year old typical Bangalore house with thick load bearing walls. Most of the outer walls were very close to the plot boundary cutting out a large amount of light. The neighbor’s house too was hugging the boundary wall in certain areas which cut off even more light.Save this picture!© Lester RozarioThe requirement was to de-clutter the existing house and add more spaces, to meet the needs of the family. Our challenge was to rid the house of its dark, dingy corners and simultaneously make it ‘vastu compliant’. We decided that instead competing with the vastu prerequisite, it would be more productive to convert it to an asset. Save this picture!© Lester RozarioThe main vastu changes involved moving the staircase to the north. Instead of demolishing and remaking the entire stair, we decided only to demolish the first flight of the stair and subtract the built form above it. Moving the first flight of the stair created an interesting opportunity. The freed-up space could have been added to the existing living room. Instead, it was added to the setback outside to create a little “pocket of sunshine” for the house. This completely changed the nature of the entire ground floor bringing in plenty of natural light. It also gave the family a small outdoor space, which acted like an extension of the living room and was cut off from the busy street. The new flight of stair is perpendicular to the existing stair and is attached to the front of the house like an appendage. Save this picture!© Lester RozarioJust like most houses built here in the 80’s, this house had a huge projection above the car park, the top of which was not accessible. We decided to convert this space into a study. However the slab could not take the load of a wall so we hung the outer skin from the roof. The new areas are distinctly distinguished from the old in terms of material, viz. concrete and brick. The additional volumes in brick and concrete latch on to the existing structure which is conceived as a white monolith. All existing doors and windows were reused and the new windows, although different in language attempt to echo certain aspects of the old windowsProject gallerySee allShow lessVintergatan / Aarhus School of ArchitectureArticlesThe Skyscraper as Citizen: Reflections on the Public Life of Private BuildingsArticles Share Houses ArchDaily Sharma House / Kamat & Rozario Architecture India 2010 Save this picture!© Lester Rozario+ 18 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeKamat & Rozario ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBangaloreHousesIndiaPublished on April 23, 2011Cite: “Sharma House / Kamat & Rozario Architecture” 23 Apr 2011.

Judy Chu (CA-27), participated as one of the lead Democrats of the subcommittee.“Cheap, dangerous, and often marketed to youth, designer synthetic drugs are becoming increasingly popular among teens and young adults – to lethal effect,” Chu said after the hearing. “The stories I heard today were incredibly moving and helped to open all of our eyes to the pernicious impact these new drugs are having on our communities. Produced in a laboratory to mimic or enhance natural drugs, synthetic drugs do not receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval or any oversight. Instead, they are sold readily in stores and online.”Chu cited the testimony of Devin Eckhardt, whose son slipped into a coma and died from synthetic drugs.“Even one use can be life-ending. It’s clear that Congress must take increased steps to strengthen our tools for stopping these drugs,” Chu said.She called for a new proactive approach that will streamline the process of identifying and scheduling these synthetic drugs, combat the manufacture and importation of synthetic drugs, and work with local business and law enforcement to keep them off the streets and out of our children’s hands.”Witnesses at the hearing included Louis Milione, Deputy Assistant Administrator for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Officer William Smith Jr., a member of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, Dr. David Nichols, Adjunct Professor of Chemical Biology and Medicinal Chemistry, and Devin Eckhardt, the father of Connor Eckhardt who died after his first experience with the synthetic drug known as “spice”.Further details on this hearing are accessible through the House Judiciary Committee, found here.
