Two requirements were sufficient for the approach and the genesis of this project. The first activities under typical rural environment equestrian uses were present as indissoluble features in the design concept; and the second project a rural housing under a contemporary reading embodied in its architecture.Save this picture!© Santiago Robayo FotografíaThus the fundamental challenge of the project was to ensure that both the use and image were in constant symbiosis. For this and before generating a design scheme, architects initiate an investigation of the cultural aspects from the area of ​​habitat that have been established in rural dwellings of the place. Thus there are different reference elements from the formal reading provided design guidelines as a starting point. In the first instance it is found that the facades of urban and rural households in the area have different rhythms of composition generally built with traditional materials such as stone, adobe and lime.Save this picture!© Santiago Robayo FotografíaAnother important design element is the generation of orthogonal frames, lintels and porches that generate vestibules and access to different areas, a vernacular architecture derived from different eras and historical moments. Finally it is found that the use of earth colors inherited from the traditional rock art site, is a constant in the facades of peasant homes, this being a constant that characterizes the customs, identity and historical memory of the people in building its environment.Save this picture!1st Floor PlanSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanFrom them and to the natural virtues of the place of implementation, the project approach is generated. Both functions such as space requirements and enjoyment to various important views from the landscape, the inner plasma spatial distribution. This distribution is not more than the sum of different experiences through rural and traditional activities of the area. Both rural life, as their activities sought to integrate into the design. For them a series of mews arises on the first floor being a fundamental requirement of their owners for the design of the equestrian peasant house. Also this first level have a wide service area and a number of ancillary units derived from such activity.Save this picture!© Santiago Robayo FotografíaAs zoning was looking all activities that make vital the operation of traditional rural house and second floor as a loft (interpreting the contemporary search city), the dependence necessary for the permanent accommodation is found to concentrate on first floor or casual, areas such as kitchen, multiple living room, bedroom and bathroom. There, from the second level and through the different terraces exploited on the roof of the stables, is privileged view towards the mountains, the countryside and its traditional environment. As for the construction, it was done with traditional techniques using clay blocks, rustic adobe and lime plastering.Save this picture!SectionsThe tones of the facades are a formal reading of the typical and traditional colors of their surroundings and historical memory with emphasis on earth-colored houses and the reddish rock art; These loose walls were painted with natural dyes derived materials. As for the climate whose constant is the cloudiness, humidity and fog, bioclimatic was an important factor where natural lighting and ventilation make comfortable interior spaces, as well as the use of materials that help energy optimization, materialized double walls, eaves and heights that allow a pleasant atmosphere.Save this picture!© Santiago Robayo FotografíaInside, details such as the door to the loft, re-used element of the Republican period, and the lintel of the fireplace, they become benchmarks and memory. Also the couch corner built in masonry contains two trundle multiple space turning this area into a flexible four-bed accommodation beds. Finally the master bath has a sober mix of colors that refer to the typical peasant tones. Both the horses and the different uses that are part of the traditional peasant housing, were the genesis of the design of this multifunctional, discreet but modern turn housing, details for their owners make a perfect correlation between the traditional and the contemporary.Save this picture!© Santiago Robayo FotografíaProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Ali Karimi and Hamed Bukhamseen Discuss the Kuwaiti Contribution to the 2016 …VideosWatch How Bamboo Scaffolding Was Used to Build Hong Kong’s SkyscrapersArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Photographs CopyHouses•Zipacón, Colombiacenter_img Architects: David Macias, Miguel Quintana Area Area of this architecture project 2016 Ecuestre / David Macias + Miguel QuintanaSave this projectSaveEcuestre / David Macias + Miguel Quintana Photographs:  Santiago Robayo Fotografía Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Ecuestre / David Macias + Miguel Quintana Area:  350 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects CopyAbout this officeDavid MaciasOfficeFollowMiguel QuintanaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZipacónColombiaPublished on August 15, 2016Cite: “Ecuestre / David Macias + Miguel Quintana” 15 Aug 2016.

In light of this, the petitioner, Advocate Reepak Kansal, has filed the petition to make appropriate modification / interpretation of sections of IPC, dealing with sexual assault to include transsexuals and eunuchs in its definitions.”The Indian laws are for men and women and therefore, considering transgender neither men nor women, they generally could not get justice from the authorities due to lack of law / Act. The third gender, they are being deprived of many of the rights and privileges which other persons enjoy as citizens of this country. The State cannot discriminate them on the ground of gender, violating Articles 14 to 16 and 21 of the Constitution of India,” Kansal states.Resting on the epithets of Article 14 and 15 of the Constitution, the plea by Kansal states that the Articles do not limit the term “person” to just male and female.Further, pointing to Article 21, the plea states that the “greatest and most inclusive constitutional provision is Article 21 states that no person shall be deprived of life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law commonly understood as “Right to life” includes Right to live with dignity”. In this context, it adds that “due to said sexual assault /hate crime, transgender could not live their lives with respect and dignity”.Kansal has made reference to the National Legal Services Authority v. Union of India (SCC 2014 5 SC 438) which granted recognition to the transgenders as “persons” under Article 14 of the Constitution.”In-spite of declaring transgender people to be a “Third Gender” by this Hon’ble Court, there is no provision / section in the Indian penal code which may protect the third gender from the sexual assault by male/ female or another transgender,” the plea states.Further, the petitioner adds that statistics have documented that incidents of sexual violence against transgenders indicate shockingly high levels of sexual abuse and assault where one in two transgender individuals are sexually abused or assaulted at some point in their lives. Some of them have been sexually abused and assaulted while in jail and custody of the police,”Sexual assaults can be perpetrated by any individual; however, it is particularly startling when professionals who are in “helping” roles abuse their power and sexually assault individuals they are supposed to be serving. Fifteen percent of transgender individuals report being sexually assaulted while in police custody or jail. The main reason is that there is no security of transgender and they put in jail with male convicted. There are no separate jails or wards or security to transgender” – Excerpt of pleaMoreover, it is averred that even though the Delhi Police had informed the Delhi High Court that all cases concerning sexual harassment against transgenders will now be registered under Section 354A of the Indian Penal Code which deals with “assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty”, the statement given by Delhi Police before the Delhi High Court is not binding due to lack of proper enactment in law. “Secondly, it is not binding to police forces of other States in the country,” adds the petitioner.Furthermore, the plea stipulated that as India is a signatory to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the rights relating to life, liberty, equality and dignity of the individual guaranteed by the constitution or embodied in the International Covenants and enforceable by Courts of India.”…..this is implicit from Article 51(C) and the enabling power of Parliament to enact law for implementing international conventions and norms by virtue of Article 253 read with Entry 14 of the Union List in the Seventh Schedule to the Constitution,” the plea reads.In this context, the petitioner has sought a direction to the Centre to make appropriate writ, order or direction in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to make appropriate modification / interpretation of Sections/ Provisions of IPC dealing with sexual assault to include transgender / transsexuals / Kinnar and eunuchs in the definitions.Additionally, the plea prays for directions to make gender-neutral sexual harassment mechanisms, pass an Anti-Discrimination Bill that penalizes discrimination and harassment on the basis of gender, adopt and implement the UDHR as well as to frame guidelines to protect the fundamental rights of third gender by giving them equal protection before law till such time as the legislature to safeguard by protecting third gender from sexual assault. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
