Aamodt / Plumb was commissioned to design a home for a young family on a beautiful site on Lake Austin with only one catch: an incredibly compressed 12-month schedule. “12 months is extremely fast!” notes Aamodt. “Twelve months made us realize that we had to think very differently about how to do this project. What we did was to redesign the process of building a house.”Save this picture!© Casey DunnThe architects built a complete Building Information Model (BIM) of the home in Revit before any construction happened. Then, to meet the tight schedule the young architects employed fast-tracking techniques typically used on large-scale projects and adapted them to the residential context where tolerances are much more demanding. They worked with Bensonwood, a high-tech sustainable timber company, to manufacture panelized sections of the house in their factory off-site. At the same time, all of the site-work and foundation work was performed on-site by Austin’s high-performance builder Risinger Homes. This significantly reduced the amount of time to construct the building envelope. Matt Risinger of Risinger homes commented: “We were able to frame the house in just two weeks. That’s pretty incredible for a 6,000 square foot custom home.” The factory fabrication also meant that the envelope of the house fit together so well that the house was approaching passive energy standards with no additional measures. The architects were left with an air-tight envelope and fully complete site-work in the same amount of time that a normal house might have had only the site-work or foundations completed.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house itself has an airy, relaxed feel that matches perfectly with the relaxed Austin vibe. Spaces blend with one another and views outside and to the lake beyond bring nature into the house. The house is divided into two wings: a private wing for the family to sleep and work in, and a public wing for dining, entertaining, and recreation. The split massing of the house allowed the architects to preserve all of the trees on the site and the house nestles around a mature live oak tree which adds to a sense of privacy and connection to nature.Save this picture!© Casey DunnOn the exterior of the house, the high performance timber panels are clad in Shou Sugi Ban charred Cyprus, an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood by charring and cooling the wood. The black finish of the charred Cyprus is offset by a lightweight white steel roof that efficiently reflects the rays of the Texas sun away from the house keeping it cool during the summer months.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe architects, their builder, and fabricator deployed a novel use of prefabrication technology, and interior planning and organization, and traditional techniques to execute a high-end custom home that feels comfortable and effortless in a record amount of time.Save this picture!© Casey DunnProject gallerySee allShow lessThe New New York Skyline (Sunlight Not Included)Architecture NewsPeter Zumthor: “There’s Nothing I’m Not Interested In”Videos Share “COPY” Houses United States “COPY” Save this picture!© Casey Dunn+ 15 Share CopyHouses•Austin, United States Year:  ArchDaily Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAustin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architects Projects Area:  6000 ft² Area:  6000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architectscenter_img Year:  Risinger Homes Architects: Aamodt / Plumb Architects Area Area of this architecture project photographs:  Casey DunnPhotographs:  Casey Dunn 2014 Builder: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs 2014 CopyAbout this officeAamodt / Plumb ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinUnited StatesPublished on November 30, 2015Cite: “Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architects” 30 Nov 2015.

A statement made without intent cannot be considered to be a criminal offence u/s 153A,295A, 505 of IPC & 66 of IT Act.2) Alternatively…assuming thereto, is it not a case made under Section 95 and liable to be quashed?3) One cannot have alternative FIRs arising out the same alleged offence, doing so points to abuse of power.4) Also, assuming though not accepting that an FIR could lie, the jurisdiction cannot be beyond Noida where the broadcast was made, Devgan cannot be dragged to any and every corner of the country.Luthra argued that the basis of filing an FIR basis against Devgan stemmed from what was learnt by complainant on social media. “What is said on social media is often very toxic and if you read something toxic, does not mean the original content was. This man did not even watch the show and he states in the FIR itself that he got the information about Devgan’s derogatory statements from social media” he added.While one FIR did state that Devgan had the intention to insult the Sufi Saint, which he did deliberately (by using the word “Lootera” for Khwaja Moinnuddin Chisti on his show), Luthra argued that intention in no way makes out an offence. Then, the Senior Counsel argued that that a comment against a religious figure would not attract an offence under 295A IPC.There is absence of all ingredients made out against Devgan, under Section 153A, 295A or 505(2) of the IPC.”I would submit, how can the act fall within 505(2)? The mere usage of the word intent or deliberate in the FIR will not bring offences within the corners of these sections under IPC against,” said Luthra.Further, he contended that section 66(f) of the Information Technology act would also not be attracted as it stipulated ingredients of “Cyber Terrorism”.The bench is expected to hear arguments tomorrow throughout the day from 10.30 AM.Background:While hosting a debate on June 15 on PIL’s regarding the Place of Worship Special Provision Act on his show ‘Aar Par’, Amish had called Khwaja Moinuddin Chisthi, better known as Khwaja Ghreeb Nawaz, an “attacker” and “looter”.Following that, several police complaints and FIRs were registered against the anchor across the country.Devgan’s petition filed through Advocate Vivek Jain seeks quashing of the FIRs which have invoked sections 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), ‪153A‬ (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc, and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 505 (Statements conducing to public mischief) and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).Devgan had also profusely apologised for referring to the Sufi Saint as a “lootera” and called it an “inadvertent error”.His tweet of apology read:”In 1 of my debates,I inadvertently referred to ‘Khilji’ as Chishti. I sincerely apologise for this grave error and the anguish it may hv caused to followers of the Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti, whom I revere. I have in the past sought blessings at his dargah. I regret this error”.On July 8, the top court had directed a stay on an investigation and coercive action against journalist Amish Devgan.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
