Located on a long and irregularly narrow site in Trivandrum with its longer side facing west, the The BRICKHAUS, Keralam, India is designed to be both a place of respite and exhilaration for the Clients – a young family both Doctors and their two kids, the lady of the house a trained dancer too. The plan addresses the diverse requirements – a blend of novelty and function, Public presentation & Private expression.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThe house is an exploration in revealing the beauty of the oldest and most versatile material – the country burnt brick. The BRICKHAUS naturally evokes a feeling of nostalgia. The house has an ethnic charm, which is accentuated in the varied play of light & shadows by placement and detailing of fenestrations and the material palette. The design has also attempted to bring nature inside, with both the use of contextually detailed skylights and jali work– defining breezeways facilitating natural cooling of the interiors and complemented with a distribution of internal gardens and pools, working together to bring in a magical play of light.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThe house is an unspoken narrative of open and interconnected spaces that challenge the standard assumptions of load-bearing brick construction, an intimate variation of scaling of space, of polished concrete floors and Exposed Concrete ceilings, of un-rendered brick. The house becomes a celebration of the imperfection of the material substrate, and the organic expression of asymmetry conspicuously present throughout all adding to a sense of sensory dynamism. The custom-built furniture and joinery items add to the charm of the house. From a functional layout, the Dining area with its east-west orientation opens out to a landscaped internal Courtyard, connecting the house with the ‘outdoors’.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThis functional syntax is carried across to other parts of the house also, such as the master bedroom having a landscaped court bounded by brick louvers bringing in cool breezes whilst also being privacy screen controlling views in from the outside. On this same theme, the Medical Consultancy space and its adjoined Guest Bedroom form a separate block spatially separate to the rest of the house, but subtly blended in with the house. A carefully detailed brick-paved path forms the tectonic cord connecting the two spatial blocks together whilst also doubling up as a performance stage floor for small family gatherings. The quiet reflective brick-edged lotus pool beside the informal stage gives a palpable and inviting vibe to this space.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosInternally, the timber staircase and its juxtaposition to a traditional swing in the adjoining internal courtyard uses the visual language of litheness and motion to tie together the larger layout of contingent spaces, whilst allowing through-views for a sense of a spatial continuum. From an energy consumption perspective, The BRICKHAUS is a ‘Net Zero’ entity. The BRICKHAUS has tastefully responded to the potential of its site, and the aspirational requirements of its clients to deliver a restrained architectural end product, which is both visually capturing as well as functionally efficient, and an organic addition to the local milieu.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosProject gallerySee allShow lessHuandao Middle School / TAO – Trace Architecture OfficeSelected ProjectsTwo Union Square Lobby / NBBJSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928531/the-brick-house-srijit-srinivas-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running Studios+ 31Curated by Paula Pintos Share 2019 Srijit Srinivas Projects Houses Architects: Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS Area Area of this architecture project Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928531/the-brick-house-srijit-srinivas-architects Clipboard The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS “COPY” Year: CopyHouses•Thiruvananthapuram, India Srijit Srinivas ARCHITECTS Photographs: Prasanth Mohan, Running Studios Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lead Architect: The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTSSave this projectSaveThe Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS India Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Grohe, Adobe, Changi, Decowood, Hybec, Trojan, Tulip Landscape Design: Area: 4250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSrijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTSOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThiruvananthapuramOn FacebookIndiaPublished on November 17, 2019Cite: “The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS” 16 Nov 2019.

Just over a billion new tenners have been printed, with the note made out of polymer like the £5 note, which entered circulation a year ago. The two will be joined by a new polymer £20 note featuring J M W Turner in 2020. The current paper £10 note featuring Charles Darwin will be withdrawn in Spring 2018, with the date yet to be announced.The new version is the first note to have a tactile feature to support the blind and partially sighted: on the front of the polymer £10 note, there are two clusters of raised dots in the top left hand corner. Following on from last year’s launch of the new £5 note, which saw millions raised for charity through the first fiver campaign, charities and individuals have taken to social media to ask people to consider donating their first tenner too. This included Caroline Criado-Perez who campaigned to have a woman on the banknote. She is donating her first tenner to a women’s shelter and is urging others to do the same.https://twitter.com/CCriadoPerez/status/908245015524241408In addition, the Bank of England has announced that it is holding a charity auction of notes with low serial numbers on 6 October, run by Spinks.
