Rios Clementi Hale Studios renovated and expanded an eclectic, 1980s manor house into a contemporary “farmhouse” retreat for a film and television producer.  Since the original house was already well situated in its orientation to canyon views, the architects kept the building footprint in place and preserved the height and steep pitch of the roof to create a loft feeling inside.  They extensively remodeled and expanded the interiors to open the rooms, simplify the circulation, better capture views, and blur the boundary between indoors and outdoors.  The architects maximized the existing “bones” of the house and then focused on letting the landscape flow through.  Save this picture!© John EllisComplementary slate roof tiles and tongue-and-groove siding of gray-painted cedar replace the original exterior materials.  New expanses of glass are screened from direct sunlight by a rhythmic pattern of vertical, aluminum fins forming a continuous, two-story brise soleil (that also deters nosy onlookers).  Large, cantilevered windows rimmed in steel project from gabled additions on the north and south sides of the house to engage the landscape.  Original masonry chimneys were rebuilt to current seismic standards and internal gutters hidden from view to maintain the home’s taut profile.  The resulting design reinterprets the traditional barn vernacular through modern simplicity and transparency.  Save this picture!1st Floor PlanThe house is organized into a T-shape with rooms on each level accessed from the longer, horizontal bar, essentially a central, east-west circulation spine that extends the entire length of the house.  Staircases and less-used spaces—including guest rooms, home gym, garages, and screening room—occupy the perpendicular wing at the front of the property.  To highlight the owner’s extensive art collection, the architects designed the interiors as clean-lined, flowing spaces open to views through floor-to-ceiling windows.  New skylights funnel daylight into living spaces and bedrooms.  Banks of glass doors open the ground floor rooms to the outdoors.  Steel-framed windows on the second floor project into the landscape to create the feeling of being suspended in midair.  Connections to the outdoors are reinforced through floors of gray limestone extending from the entrance through the foyer, living area, and family porch to cover the rear patio.Save this picture!© John EllisA staircase featuring full-height, gunmetal-finished metal railings at the center of the house leads to the middle of the spine, where a mezzanine office/den overlooks the living room on the west end, and bedroom suites sit at the east.  The original master suite was moved from the southwest corner of the house to the northeast side overlooking the pool view.  The master bedroom was enlarged and new his-and-her bathrooms added to the suite.Save this picture!2nd Floor PlanThe interior furnishings selections—by Waldo’s Designs, which is known for its high-profile Hollywood clientele—complement the architecture in their soft contemporary style.  Natural textures, including dark-stained oak, rough-hewn stone, and high-grained woods, are balanced against the hard-edged, metal surfaces, glass walls, and stone floors throughout.Save this picture!© John EllisAn important component of the design is the estate’s park-like landscape that was refreshed and refined by the architects.  Old-growth trees, including redwoods, cedars, and palms, are preserved and surrounded by manicured lawns and hedges.  The lawn appears as an extension of the golf course below the property to reinforce the vistas from the estate.  Separating building from landscape is a strip of gravel encircling the base of the house to set off its modern architecture.  A new reflecting pool and illuminated bridge create a dramatic entrance to the front door, particularly at night when the glass-faced house glows like a lantern.Save this picture!© John EllisProject gallerySee allShow lessUN Studio Announces 20th Anniversary Exhibition of Erasmus Bridge, New Book and AppArchitecture NewsStudio Pei-Zhu Unveils Plans for Performing Arts Center in Dali, ChinaUnbuilt Project Share 2014 United States New Barn / Rios Clementi Hale Studios ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers: Exquisite Surfaces, Studio Four NYC ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeRios Clementi Hale StudiosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos AngelesUnited StatesPublished on August 26, 2016Cite: “New Barn / Rios Clementi Hale Studios” 26 Aug 2016.

They are ones who didn’t opt for plea bargaining and wanted a trial instead. For those who went for plea-bargaining, the matter is over. They can go. Ultimately, the others were also discharged. They can go back to their countries of origin subject to giving an undertaking and security or other assurance”, informed ASG K. M. Natarajan when the case was taken up.”So let that be done before the relevant courts. Take the undertaking and let them go. There should be no difficulty in that”, said Justice A. M. Khanwilkar.”Out of the 44 foreign nationals tried, 8 have been fully discharged. Others have been discharged under section 14 of the Foreigners’ Act while the lesser charges continue”, submitted Senior Counsel C. U. Singh for the petitioner.”The ASG says revision petitions for these 8 have been filed…You may also move an application before the revision court and subject to an undertaking to abide by any directions, you may be permitted to go”, said Justice Khanwilkar.”Also, where no charges are remaining, some facilitation will be needed. On August 6, the SG had assured that the look-out notices will be withdrawn and their return to the countries of origin will be facilitated…if Your Lordships could record this?”, asked Mr. Singh.”A general observation would not be helpful. Give us a list of persons who have been fully discharged or acquitted and against whom nothing is pending and we will ask the Solicitor to have their names cleared from the relevant department”, said Justice Khanwilkar.”Also, could Your Lordships direct courts to dispose off the revisions? This lingering thing is affecting the rights of these people. Some finality is needed”, pressed Mr. Singh.Turning to the ASG, Justice Khanwilkar asked, “Could you identify a nodal authority? We can give a general direction that individual representations could be made to the officer/office concerned, to be processed within a definite timeline and the decision to be communicated after obtaining directions from the appropriate quarters within 3-4 working days. If multiple departments are involved, then no later than 1 week”Even as Mr. Singh suggested that the Immigration Bureau could be so designated, the ASG sought a pass-over to be able to get back to the court on this account.Then, Senior Advocate Maneka Guruswamy made submissions in connection with the state of Bihar and UP- “On September1 , vis-a-vis Bihar , Your Lordships had said that the HC would designate a Fast Track Court and had required the state of Bihar to file an application. Could you please expedite that process? The state didn’t file the application, we did. The matter is still to be heard. Your Lordships had on September 1 said that these trials be completed in 8 weeks. However, nothing has even commenced…those individuals are still waiting…it’s been a month and half””This is not a normal situation. There may be logistical problems before the HC also. Sitting here, we can’t visualise the reason why the HC is not listing it. We can’t go till that extent. We are told the HC is to hear it today or tomorrow. We’ll wait. If nothing is done even upon the re-opening of the court after the Dussehra break, we’ll see. Unless Bihar state has a proposal?”, observed Justice Khanwilkar, asking the counsel for the state if the government has a proposal for settlement.The counsel for the state of Bihar informed the bench that the matter was listed before the HC yesterday and the trial has been consolidated and transferred to Patna. As Ms. Guruswamy conceded that she was not aware of this development, Justice Khanwilkar noted that the top court will now wait.The bench also noted that a similar consolidation order has also been passed by the Allahabad HC for the state of UP.”We hope and trust that the concerned authorities will ensure the transmission of records to the designated courts and the trials will be completed expeditiously”, expressed the bench.At this point, the ASG also informed the bench that Mr. Joy Thirkey, Joint Commissioner of Police, Delhi could be the nodal officer. The bench required him to convey his correct name, designation and address in writing to the court.The bench directed that all revision petitions be disposed off expeditiously, subject to undertaking and other conditions, and that the concerned departments of the UOI to have no other objections to their travelling back to their countries of origin.Further, it required that all other foreign nationals may make representations to the aforesaid officer, who will have the responsibility of processing the same in 4 days, and not later than 1 week, in any case, subject to the fulfillment of such necessary conditions as may be applicable.
