The project is structured to frame the park by using two distinct pieces, the house, located on the front, and the pool, located in the back of the lot. According to this, both pieces designed to occupy the entire width of the lot within the edificatory limits. The width, 17m., is replicated to the back of the lot, obtaining a square of 17×17, into which the proposal is organized.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías ImbernThe house is set on two floors of great contrast. The first floor contains the intimate spaces, with a stronger image that gives an architectural, climatic and structural response by using concrete as the dominant materiality of the project. The ground floor accommodates the social spaces, organized through a grid system that allows visual and light permeability. Glass and white plaster act as a socket which ‘elevates’ concrete from the ground, increasing its presence, emphasized by the cantilevers at both ends. Finally, a central double-height links both floors while fragments the functional program, determining the coexistence of three quasi-autonomous houses: the Social House, the Parents House and the Kids House.Save this picture!1st Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Matías ImbernSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanThe horizontal porosity of housing that links the front of the lot with the park, is enhanced with the introduction of seven skylights enabling the entry of daylight in specific sectors of greater intimacy and/or lower sunlight. In turn, a small patio separates the kitchen from the living-room, but emphasizes the visual continuity of the ground floor. In this sector, the concrete structure is raised by small section metal columns that are hidden by the aluminum window frames, enabling the spatial merging among kitchen, living-room, gallery and park.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías ImbernSave this picture!Section DDSave this picture!Courtesy of Matías ImbernProject gallerySee allShow lessPRODUCTORA’s Pavilion on the Zocalo Wins MCHAP.emerge 2014/2015Architecture News”It’s Liquid Architecture” Design Student Awards 2016Student Competitions Share 17×17 House / Matías Imbern Houses CopyAbout this officeMatías ImbernOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFunesArgentinaPublished on April 04, 2016Cite: “17×17 House / Matías Imbern” 04 Apr 2016.

It is contended that the trial court has not truly quoted the evidence in the judgment.”The trial and conviction of the accused by the court below in all respects are vitiated by grave illegalities and irregularities”, the appeal says.The CBI Court had sentenced Kottoor and Sister Sephy for the murder of Sister Abhaya at St Pious Tenth Convent Hostel, Kottayam in 1992.Special CBI Judge K Sanilkumar had found Kottoor and Sephy guilty of murder accepting the case of the Central Bureau of Investigation that Sister Abhaya was murdered by the convicts after she happened to witness their intimate exchanges inside the convent.The CBI Court found them guilty of murder under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code and sentenced them to life imprisonment.The culprits were also imposed a fine of Rupees 5 lakh each under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code. Kottoor was also imposed an additional sentence of life and a fine of Rupees one lakh under Section 449 IPC(house-trespass in order to commit offence punishable with death).The convicts were also awarded 7 years imprisonment and a fine of Rupees 50,000 each for the offence under Section 201 IPC(destruction of evidence). The sentences of imprisonment given to the convicts will run concurrently.Sister Abhaya, a 20 year old novice, was found dead inside the well of St.Pious Xth Convent at Kottayam on March 27, 1992.Father Kottoor, the first accused in the case, was a lecturer of Psychology at BCM College, Kottayam, where Sister Abhaya was a student. The second accused in the case, Father Jose Poothrikkayil, a lecturer of Malayalam in the same college, was discharged by the Court in 2019 citing lack of evidence against him. Sister Sephy was an inmate of St.Pious X Convent.The local police and the crime branch of the Kerala Police initially closed the case as a suicide. After a lot of public outcry, the case was handed over to the CBI.The CBI also could not make any headway in the case until 2008. Before that, different teams of the CBI had filed three closure reports in the case – in 1996, 1999 and 2005. However, the Chief Judicial Magistrate at Ernakulam refused to accept these closure reports and asked the agency to conduct further investigation.On November 1, 2008, the High Court of Kerala directed the Kochi Unit of the CBI to take over the investigation. Soon after that, by November 19, 2008, the CBI arrested Father Thomas Kottoor, Sister Sephy and Father Jose Poothrikkayil.In July 2009, the CBI filed a chargesheet arraying Father Thomas Kottoor, Sister Sephy and Father Jose Poothrukkayil as accused for offences of murder and destruction of evidence. As per the report, Sister Abhaya had accidentally intruded upon Sr. Sephy and the other two accused priests in a “compromising position”. It was further alleged that Sr Sephy panicked and, on the spur of the moment, Sephy hit Abhaya with an axe meant for chopping firewood. After that, the accuseddumped Abhaya’s body into the well.In October 2020, the High Court directed to expedite the trial by doing it on a day-to-day basis. A single bench of Justice V G Arun observed that it was “disheartening to note that criminal proceedings pertaining to a crime of 1992 is yet to attain finality, whether it be by reason of providence or design”. The Court allowed cross-examination of witnesses through video conferencing mode considering the pandemic situation.The accused were subjected to narco-analysis and brain mapping tests at the Forensic Science Laboratory, Bangalore.Last year, the High Court of Kerala ruled that the results of narco-analysis and brain mapping process done on the accused cannot be used in evidence.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
