For Andrew Maynard Architects’ latest design, a holiday home in Anglesea VIC, the clients’ requirement was simple: more space for their growing and aging family. With the need of the client always in mind, Andrew Maynard Architects set out to create a multi-generational vacation home whose “versatility…allows it to be inhabited simultaneously by all members of the extended family…The design is rigorously addressed at different scales, allowing there to be a certain level of connection and interaction throughout while also providing smaller zones where solace can be found.”Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe design response to the home was a series of “finely-crafted multi-functional timber boxes” nestled around the existing house.  The design allows the users to take advantage of the surroundings by having the form open to the outdoors.  This set up allows extensive physical and visual interaction between the two environments.Save this picture!”Throughout the day, the timber allows the additions to have an appearance that is harmonious with its surroundings, whilst at night the internal lights amplify the bold colour scheme, giving the structure an almost synthetic and rendered image,” explained the architects.Save this picture!A new trafficable roof extends the top floor living spaces out into the treetops in an attempt to connect the house with the site.  Below the roof, the wood continues downward to create a deck for the first level.  Parts of the structure are carved out creating  “a multi-dimensioned element” that provides shelter as well as habitable areas for the children to play. Save this picture!A “Northern box addition” allows winter sun to penetrate deep within the home’s interior, warming the concrete slab provided for thermal mass.  Bright color finishes at the ground level enliven the interior to create a “playful, leisurely and carefree characteristic that such a house should embody.”Save this picture!Elements strive to perform a variety of functions as a bed serves as a recreational seat, a play platform for children, an access point out to the trampoline, a storage space & (when the large black curtain is extended dividing the area) a private bed.  “This multiplicity in function, allows the spaces to have increased versatility, and allows the plan to respond to many different demands simultaneously reducing the overall footprint of the design.”Save this picture!All images courtesy of the studio.  For the complete set of images visit Andrew Maynard Architects’ official site for the project.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessVaeksthuset Botanical Garden / CebraArticlesPolish Pavilion / WWA ArchitectsArticles Share ArchDaily Australia Anglesea House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAnglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects Anglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!+ 24 Share Projects “COPY” Architects: Austin Maynard Architects Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodRefurbishmentHousesAnglesea3D ModellingAustraliaPublished on July 02, 2009Cite: “Anglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects” 02 Jul 2009.

So granting them degree certificates at the earliest based on past performance is the best course available to protect the future of the students.The option of online exams is also not viable given the stark digital divide, and the lack of uniform access to the internet across the spectrum.Examination is not the only mode of evaluation. UGC follows the concept of ‘continuous evaluation’ of the student from day 1. Hence, internal assessments and performance of past semesters can be reckoned to award final degrees.The UGC stated that the direction was issued in the best interests of the students. The Ministry of Home Affairs told the Court that it has given an exemption for opening educational institutions for the purpose of conducting exams.Disaster Management Act vs UGC ActThe case also threw up the issue of conflict between Disaster Managment Act and the UGC Act. This was in the context of the State of Maharashtra acting on the decision of  the State Disaster Management Authority to direct the cancellation of final term exams. Hence, an issue arose in the case as to whose directions will prevail – whether that of the SDMA or the UGC.The UGC maintained that in matters related to higher education, it remains the final word and the SDMA cannot interfere in that domain. On the other hand, the State of Maharashtra submitted that in the backdrop of COVID-19 pandemic, which has been notified as a ‘disaster’ within the meaning of the DMA, the State Disaster Management Authority posseses vast powers to take appropriate decisions to deal with the situation to protect the lives of people.State AutonomyAnother crucial issue in the case was whether State Governments possess autonomy in the matter. The Governments of the National Capital Territoriy of Delhi, West Bengal, Odisha, Maharashtra etc, have issued directions to cancel final term exams. Therefore, the question was whether UGC can override the State Governments in that regard.It was argued by the State Governments that the UGC has only the power to lay down standards or education and cannot issue peremptory directions to universities. It was further argued that the UGC can only lay down guidelines, that too after consluting the Universities as per Section 12 of the UGC Act. The States contended that the UGC took the decision without consulting them and without taking account of the local situations. Senior Advocates Dr AM Singhvi (for petitioner Yash Dubey), Syam Divan(for petitioner Yuva Sena), Arvind P Datar (for Maharashtra), K V Vishwanathan (for Delhi), Jaideep Gupta (for West Bengal), Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava(for petitioners), Solicitor General Tushar Mehta (for UGC) etc made arguments in the case.Reports about various submissions in the hearing may be read below :How Can There Be Exams Without Teaching?
