Rooted in a Bangladeshi land, not far from Commercial capital of the region, Chattogram, SHIKOR is a country house that rediscovers in the simplicity of forms all the charm of rural architecture in a contemporary way. Bengali term “SHIKOR” used to denote “ROOTS”: The origin from which it all begins. It is the home retreat of a local family, whose history inevitably is intertwined with the past of the land on which it is built.Save this picture!© Asif SalmanJust as in almost all Bangladeshi families, the owners’ ancestors were farmers. ; It is only in time that successive generations have moved from the countryside to neighboring urban areas in the years to come. That’s why clients, both teachers, they live their retirement life in the city. Khan left his father’s rural home to work as a teacher, living mainly in the quarters of school campuses. But his memories, or rather, his roots, have always kept him strongly connected to the village. And because the ancient dwelling, almost falling into disuse, was now losing all its original charm (and habitability), the Khans decided to build a new one. “The intention was to create a space for children and grandchildren in such a way that they would spend their time during the holidays, as well as to pass a witness on to the new generations.Save this picture!© Asif SalmanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Asif SalmanThe result is a large farmhouse on over 440 square meters of surface that winks at the most traditional constructions: similar to a farm, Shikor showcases the handcrafted workmanship of local artisans, making the most of all the natural resources granted by the landscape. Perforated outlying walls and skylights convert every corner of the house into a living museum of light and shadow. Save this picture!© Asif SalmanThe experiences of the spaces vary from sunrise to sunset, from summer to winter. Volumes of the built complex support the territory and what it can offer: the volume made from bricks, for example, vanishes from south to south-east to allow breezes to circulate from all three directions. And while the ground floor is divided between the Kachari,Save this picture!© Asif SalmanThe formal living room, located in an isolated front, and the dining Hall that, at the rear tip, is exposed into the nature through the Poschati verandah, The Projected Balcony. The layout of the upper floor is inspired by a resort. In order to maintain a balance between privacy and conviviality, the Gudam, the bedrooms, are allocated on the First floor. The fulcrum of the project is an indoor pond which, is placed into the Cavaedium, recreating the same atmosphere of a traditional Jolghat, a Screened Pond stair for female bath.Save this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Asif SalmanMade of terracotta Bricks, the Khans’ country house also houses a series of furniture made of recycled wood, salvaged from old houses. The metal pots conventionally used for water are converted into graceful lampshades that alternate with the bamboo ones.

Selecting the Best Garden Varieties

first_imgYour goal when selecting varieties is to find those that will perform best in yourgarden. By using some of these proven techniques, you can make variety selection easy andfun. Begin early. Conduct your own scaled-down variety evaluation. Gardeners enjoy talking about their gardens, especially bragging on the high-yielding, high- quality varieties they’ve discovered. A visit with them in their garden during the garden season can prove especially helpful. See for yourself what looks the best to you. The best time to start selecting varieties for the next gardening season is the previous gardening season. Pay close attention to the varieties you plant, and make notes on their performance. Outstanding varieties this year may well be the best varieties for next year. But you will need records, particularly variety name and the seed source. It’s amazing the number of calls county extension agents get from gardeners saying: “Those beans I planted last year were the best ever, but I don’t remember the name of that variety. Help!” Seed catalogs have pictures of some of the most beautiful vegetables you will ever see. In addition, they offer volumns of variety information. Just remember, some seed companies may be biased toward their own varieties. In searching for the best varieties for your garden, find those varieties that havegood disease resistance, yield well and produce high quality vegetables. With a littleeffort, keen eyes, open ears and an open mind, you can select the very best varieties foryour garden. Make your next garden the best garden ever. Get a head start with the best varieties. Call your local countyextension office.center_img A nearby, unbiased source of information is your county extension office. County agents can provide published information on vegetable varieties. In many cases, they may know from experience some of the best varieties for your area. Check out seed catalogs. One of the best “hands-on” ways to learn about vegetable varieties is to try a few appealing varieties in your garden. If your garden is small, you can dedicate a few feet of row to new, interesting varieties. If you have a large garden, one or more rows can be used for trying out new varieties. Don’t forget, for variety evaluations to be very helpful, you must keep good records. How bountiful will your garden harvest be this spring? You can’t be certain since you can’t predict the kind of growing season we’ll have. Butyou can be certain that the better-adapted the varieties you plant, the better yourchances of reaping a bountiful harvest.Identifying the best varieties for your garden is one of the most crucial gardeningtasks you face. How do you go about selecting the best varieties? First, let’s clarify the terms. Both “variety” and “cultivar” arecommonly seen in print. Although in the strictest botanical sense, cultivar and varietyhave slightly different meanings, they are often used synonymously in the popular press. Because most seed catalogs and gardeners prefer to use “variety,” we willtoo. As used here, variety means a group of plants that are so alike they can be easilydistinguished from other groups of plants within the same species.Varieties may have different maturity dates; fruit sizes, shapes and colors; adapt tospecific environments or other fruit or plant characteristics. Discuss varieties with gardening friends and neighbors. last_img read more
