To read the stories behind other celebrated architecture projects, visit our AD Classics section. Much of the spatial composition of the Villa dall’Ava was influenced by its site, in a garden on a hill. It was completed in 1991 in the residential area of Saint-Cloud, overlooking Paris. The clients selected OMA to design a house with two distinct apartments—one for themselves and another for their daughter—and requested a swimming pool on the roof with a view of the Eiffel Tower.+ 21Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMARecommended ProductsWoodEGGERLaminatesWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorThe site is delineated by three segments along the east-west axis: the garage, set at street level and paved in asphalt, the main volume of the house, and the garden, which extends the length of the site. The garage is accessed at street level and embedded into the sloping site. The villa itself rises from the level of entry to a roof deck perched three stories above. Its visually distinct volumes are stacked and oriented to optimize views of the garden and distant city. A poured concrete wall extends the height of the villa and establishes a main axis along the length of the site. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe communal spaces for the family are located within the main volume, a glass box ensconced in the garden. The architects conceived of the site as a room bounded by vegetation and terrain; the living room set within a larger room. Broad glass windows puncture the concrete wall at garden level so that the living spaces appear fully wrapped in glass. The walls create a permeable barrier between interior and exterior and slide to open fully onto the garden. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThough the villa’s perimeter is almost entirely glass at garden level, it is not completely transparent, as one might expect. The south facade is composed of transparent and sandblasted glass, screening a portion of the living room from view while permitting the passage of light. The minimalist kitchen is hidden from the exterior, tucked behind a curved, translucent wall within the living space. Along the north facade, a thickened partition of plywood obscures the living spaces from view. Only the elements of circulation, which occupy the space between the plywood wall and glass facade, are visible from the exterior. A narrow ramp leads from the entry to the garden level, and cantilevered steps provide access from the living room to the apartment above. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe swimming pool occupies the roof level of the central volume. From below, there is no clear indication of its existence. The surface of the water reaches just below roof level. The lack of guardrail or parapet accentuates the horizontality of the roof, juxtaposed by the apartments jutting in perpendicular directions at each end. Save this picture!Garden Level Plan © OMAThe apartments cantilever beyond the central volume, hovering over the garden. Both are clad in corrugated aluminum of contrasting tones, one with an aluminum finish and the other colored red by a copper lacquer. The corrugations are oriented horizontally, reinforcing the orientation of the apartments in contrast to the central volume. The material covers the underside of each apartment box, extending even across the interior, emphasizing the reading of volume over surface. The stair, which ascends from living space to apartment overhead, appears to slip through an aperture in the volume of continuous aluminum. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe continuity of each apartment’s cladding is interrupted only by bands of strip windows. The bathrooms are housed in opaque, rectangular volumes set back from the exterior walls. Slender steel columns painted shades of black and gray support the larger of the two apartments, which dominates the street facade. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe strip windows and thin, repeated columns recall Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye. The transparent glass box with inset, opaque service volumes appears inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and the Glass House by Philip Johnson. OMA received wide recognition for another innovative residence completed after Villa dall’Ava, Maison à Bordeaux. OMA Partner Rem Koolhaas was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2000, for an extensive body of work including Villa dall’Ava.

After Court’s warning in the previous hearing, the daughter filed an undertaking stating that she will be evicting the said flat along with her son within eight weeks. Division bench of Justice SJ Kathawalla and Justice NR Borkar referred to the story of Shravan Kumar from the Ramayana- “Our country has always been proud of progeny like Shravan Kumar, who to fulfill the wish of his poor, blind and ageing parents, took them on a pilgrimage by carrying them on his shoulder in two baskets put on either side of the bamboo stick, and whilst trying to collect water on his way from a stream, to quench the thirst of his parents, became a target of King Dashrath’s arrow. It is unfortunate that in the last several years Courts are repeatedly witnessing, old parents knocking at its doors, in the twilight years of their lives seeking redressal of their grievances against their children.” Previously, the petitioner mother filed an application under Section 4 of the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007 before Sub Divisional Officer, Maintenance Tribunal for Parents and Senior Citizens, on March 16, 2020 seeking Sarita’s eviction from the said Flat. However due to the lockdown, the Tribunal was not available to decide her application, thus the present writ petition was filed. The petitioner Rajni Somkuwar alleged that her daughter Sarita, who is a divorcee and is forcefully residing in her flat with her 19-year-old son, tortures her and even took control of the petitioner’s accounts forcefully. On June 5, after concluding that the petitioner seriously apprehended mental and physical harassment at the hands of Sarita, Court issued a stern warning to Sarita and her son that if there are any further complaints from the petitioner about harassment, then both Sarita and her son will be restrained from entering the flat in question. If children cannot take care of their parent/s and allow them to live in peace, they at least ought not to make their life a living hell, Court had observed. The respondent argued that her mother was overreacting at the instance of her younger sibling Vaishali who has come to India temporarily from Singapore with her family. On Friday, Court noted that despite the June 5 order, the petitioner mother has not started residing in the said fat. However, whilst refuting the allegations of her daughter, petitioner made an offer to allow Sarita and her son to reside in one of her fats at Nalasopara, on and from July 15, 2020, if she agreed to vacate the said fat along with her son, so that she (the Petitioner) could start residing again in the said fat for the remainder of her life in peace. Thus, Sarita and her son filed an undertaking declaring that they will be vacating the said flat within eight weeks. Court accepted the said undertaking and said that if Sarita and her son are unable to find premises on leave and license basis within a period of 8 weeks from today, the petitioner shall allow them to reside in her flat at Nalasopara, until they find a premises of their choice on leave and license basis. Moreover, the bench concluded that none of the allegations made by the petitioner mother and her daughter against each other stand established and directed both parties not to publicise any allegations against each other in any manner whatsoever including but not limited to correspondence, social media, newspapers, etc.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
