A new hidden earth house integrated into the landscape “like a doona” has serious claims to be the most aesthetically pleasing bathroom in the country.

If you were to arrive in Goobragandra at the foot of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, you’d be greeted by rolling hills and a perennial stream that hasn’t been touched by time.

In the lush natural surroundings a few hours from Canberra, there is little to suggest the town is inhabited, so when Trevor and Jeanette Robinson bought land overlooking the river, they intended to keep it that way.

Instead of building a comfortably large house at the highest point, they opted for a mud house that blended into the landscape at the lowest point.

“Why be ostentatious and have this big block?” asks Trevor, referring to a modern monolith that would look atypical in the country town.

As well as blending into the landscape, the other requirement for the house was floor-to-ceiling glass doors that provide views from all aspects of the main living areas and bedrooms and “most importantly”, the hall. bathroom that offers stunning views of the mountainside.

Trevor, who was paralyzed when he was hit by a car on his motorbike a few years ago, didn’t let the accident be his loss. Instead, fueled by his innate need to live a full life (he loves nothing more than to fly his ultralight plane over the Snowy Mountains), he also managed the construction project.

Foxtel’s Grand Designs followed the construction of Trevor and Jeanette’s underground home on the 15-acre block, which towered over their 1.5-mile river frontage.

BUMPS ON THE ROADS

With a tight budget of $600,000 and an optimistic timeline of 10 months, construction was far from smooth.

“If we built a standard house here, it wouldn’t be so great,” says Jeanette. Instead, building an earth house required the removal of 500 tons of earth, before the hydronics could be laid under a concrete slab. It is estimated that a considerable amount of $300,000 of the budget was used to cover steel, concrete and hydronic bills alone. And unlike new homes built above ground, waterproofing is one of the biggest and most expensive jobs on the job site.

Building an earth house, which is essentially an underground shelter with earth against the walls, is a complicated engineering feat, says renowned architect and host of Grand Designs Peter Maddison, but the benefits are countless.

“Trevor and Jeanette’s house is on the snowbelt and away from it all. Trevor is an absolute go-getter and he wanted another adventure in his life – he didn’t just want to sit in his house in Canberra with the heat rising,” says Peter. “This house is suitable for extreme temperatures because it is underground and mother nature’s earth is constant. It’s actually like a doona. It will never reach zero degrees or 40 degrees.

The low impact building is on the side of a hill and an excessive amount of concrete has entered the building so that it does not slide down the hill. The house is then covered with 100 tons of earth and covered with grass, so it is impossible to see the address by car.

It’s definitely not the easiest way to build, plus Trevor had been hospitalized mid-build with an urgent medical issue that required back surgery.

Looking back, Peter says that “it would have been a difficult project for an able-bodied person to undertake”.

Off-the-grid, wheelchair accessible and eco-friendly are all winning tickets, but ultimately the new home was designed to give Trevor his independence back.

“When Trevor needs to lie down, as he has to spend several hours a day in this position, he now has a bedroom with a view.

“His goal was to have a toilet with a view and he can watch the river flow from the toilet.”

There are extra wide doors throughout and the kitchen benches have overhead clearance that allows Trevor to fit in with his wheelchair and cook.

“This whole house design is all about supporting Trevor and making sure he’s okay. Jeanette rocks his and isn’t demanding at all and I can’t think of a design aesthetic that’s his – she has defined herself in how she can support him,” says Peter.

“It’s not an architectural manifesto, it’s a beautiful, pragmatic house and it’s about humanity.

Its design is subtle and the facade moves with the contours of the terrain, it’s not about flexing your muscles and saying “I’m here”. He is wise and will stand the test of time. And that’s commendable.

EARTH SHELTERS AROUND THE WORLD

The earthen shelter of Antiparos in Greece is perfectly positioned in a natural furrow where two slopes meet. Two long stone walls connect the hills with the house nestled in space.

This hobbit house in Slovenia is every bit as magical as a Middle-earth abode. Located in an ancient settlement that dates back over 5000 years.

At Keldur in Iceland you will find the oldest turf buildings still standing. In the 12th century, Keldur was home to the Oddi clan. The most powerful clan in the region.

Estate Lättenstrasse is a residential area consisting of nine earthen houses in Switzerland. The houses are grouped around a small artificial lake with a hidden entrance.

Beach cabin on the Baltic Sea by Peter Kuczia

Part cabin and part veranda, the Beach Cabin on the Baltic Sea offers the most beautiful panoramic views of the beach. This small fine dining establishment located in northern Poland near Gdansk boasts of a simple shape that blends naturally into the beach surroundings. The cabin consists of two parts – an enclosed space and a spacious open living/dining area which provides shelter as well as an abundance of natural light. The glass facade offers onlookers an absolutely sublime view of the ocean, the shore, and even the sky above! The building sits on stilts so it doesn’t touch the ground directly…that is, it literally floats above the sand. Tell me this isn’t the dreamiest piece of architecture you’ve ever seen!

Haragana lounge chair by Tobias Kappeller

The Haragana is a lounge chair made from bent steel tubing and cork discs for seating. Its metal outline, to any discerning observer, resembles an armchair, however, the Haragana has no cushions or upholstery. Instead, its seating area is divided into 6 discs spread across the base and backrest. Visually, the Haragana aims to challenge the stereotype of a chair by being radically different, but functionally it’s still comfortable to sit on, with the cork discs providing just the right amount of softness and support. All in all, the chair also fulfills another purpose – that of arousing a sense of curiosity and always inviting you to try sitting on it!

Polychromatic Mobile Phone by Tecno Camon 19 Pro Design Team

Using patterns and light to define your phone’s unique look, the polychromatic mobile phone comes with a rather Mondrian-inspired pearlescent swatch grid that changes color depending on whether or not it is exposed to UV light. . At first glance, the polychromatic phone is instantly reminiscent of Google’s Project Ara… However, as Google quietly killed that company citing complex issues, the Tecno Camon team took their grid model to the next level. Combining this with inspiration from French painter Edouard Manet, who introduced light to painting and is credited with creating the Impressionist art movement, Tecno Camon created the polychromatic mobile phone design – a grid-based back design striking which is also sensitive to UV light, changing colors/hues when exposed to ultraviolet light.

GS-X One food delivery robot by Shanghai Gaussian Automation Tech Dev.

Servers have two hands… the GS-X has four! Well, equipped with four drawers, the GS-X is a smart serving robot that can deliver food to tables with efficiency and precision…and with a smile! With dual positioning cameras placed top and bottom, GS-X can quickly perceive the environment and plan routes for contactless delivery. Has the pandemic made you paranoid? Well, GS-X can also perform temperature measurement, facilitating epidemic prevention and control.

Packaging of rare Irish whiskey The Emerald Isle by Tiago Russo

Inspired by the Fabergé egg, Emerald Isle whiskey reflects a similar rare opulence with the luxury of its packaging. A statement of whiskey, artistry and craftsmanship, the whiskey bottle and packaging uses Fabergé as a recurring design accent throughout the collection. The box’s opulent colored gemstones reflect Ireland’s traditions and natural beauty. Billed as the rarest and most expensive whiskey ever sold, only seven units of Emerald Isle whiskey were produced and sold at auction, where the bottles sold for a starting price of 2 million USD! Each egg-shaped bottle is enclosed in a luxurious wooden display case, covered with a glass box. Open the display case and each bottle also comes with drinking accessories, a replica Fabergé egg, a premium wristwatch and a set of Cohiba cigars to complete the whole experience!

Draw a Calendar by Dan Wang and Ziqiang He

Designed to serve as a calendar as well as an everyday paper towel dispenser, the Draw One is mounted on your kitchen wall. Now, why would a sane person combine a calendar and a napkin dispenser? Well, designers Dan Wang and Ziqiang He wanted people to respect and cherish time as well as paper. “Draw One Calendar is a minimalist calendar that uses the shape of a tissue box as a metaphor for the preciousness of time,” the designers mentioned. The calendar uses individual sheets of paper to display the date, with each sheet also serving as a paper napkin. The catch is that you can only use one paper towel per day, so you’re automatically conditioned to be more economical and not waste paper towels. Plus, when the year is over, you can simply add another set of 365 paper towels to the Draw One’s wooden dispenser box.

E390 Electromobile by AIMA TECHNOLOGY GROUP CO., LTD.

The E390 might not have an insanely sexy name, but it certainly looks like a stunner. Unlike scooters which are generally known for having less than slender body language, the E390 boasts an incredibly lean profile, allowing it to have the appeal of a moped, with the build of a scooter. Designed for urban commuting, the E390 looks deservedly stylish in a contemporary sense, with a clean design, fresh blue colourway and that beautifully slim but piercing headlight! And although you can’t see it in the picture, the E390 also boasts of an incredibly well-designed dashboard that blends seamlessly into the shape of the scooter without even a parting or dividing line!

Iko hanging chair by Ivo Andric

“A levitating sphere, a focus capsule, a refuge for the senses” is how Ivo Andric prefers to call his design rather than a simple “hanging chair”. After all, the Iko doesn’t look like your traditional chair. Designed like a weaver’s bird’s nest, this small hanging cocoon provides a neat enclosed space in which to relax, allowing you to take a reclusive break within your home. The chair is shaped like an icosahedron, creating a geometric vibrancy that complements most home decor, and comes with plush cushions and felt-lined acoustic panel walls to give you comfort and tranquility whenever you want it !

Canairi Indoor Air Quality Monitor by Hans Augustenborg

Designed to look like home decor, the Canairi actually serves a pretty important health purpose – it tells you if your air quality is good or bad. Mounted on your wall, this adorable yellow bird stands tall, to let you know the air you’re breathing is clean, or drops dramatically to alert you when air quality drops below acceptable limits. The idea comes from the old belief that canaries were used in coal mines to detect danger, primarily carbon monoxide. If the bird fainted, it was a sign that carbon monoxide levels were too high and miners would be told to evacuate. Not a particularly ethical use of canaries if you ask me, but I assure you no canaries were harmed in the making of this air quality monitor!

Migo 3D Printer by Junshen Pan and Jie Shen

Named after the word Amigo, this tiny 3D printer is small enough to take wherever you go! About the size of a cat or small dog, the Migo fits perfectly in your backpack (you know the one you use to carry pets) and can be taken from home to work… even if it wasn’t quite designed for the job. You see, given its small footprint, Migo can’t really print larger objects, which makes it perfect for educational use rather than professional use. Gone are the days of children carrying books in their backpacks. The future means kids carrying their own 3D printers! Although no, I’m pretty sure the printer isn’t designed to work inside the backpack…yet.

koto designs luxury cabin retreats in the wild east of england

Recognized for their expertise in prefabricated modular lodgingthe team of Koto designed a series of luxury sustainable cabins for the private Fritton Lake vacation club in eastern England. the frameworkThe clad structures take the form of a balanced blend of Scandinavian-inspired exteriors and minimalist Japanese interiors, offering comfort, warmth and tranquility to those looking to relax and indulge in nature. The project consists of two residential units called ‘Ki’ and ‘Miru’, as well as a floating off grid sauna located at the end of the jetty leading to the site lake.

‘Ki’ and ‘Miru’ cabins

Designed by Koto (see more here), the cabins at Fritton Lake are a far cry from the typical country cottage. The “Ki” cabin (translated from the Japanese for tree) features an open-plan interior comprising a living room, dining room and kitchen area. The model is available in two- and three-bedroom variants, which feature king-size beds to ensure optimum comfort for all guests. Perhaps Ki’s most notable feature is its expansive open frontage which offers sweeping views of the two-mile-long lake. The expansive opening draws in natural light while allowing the landscape of nature to take center stage in the cabin.

‘Miru’ (translated from Japanese as sight) is specifically designed to adapt to the changing seasons. In summer, the windows and doors open outwards, the daily life of the occupants seeping into the surrounding nature. In winter, the structure’s eco-efficiency allows users to warm up in its modern Scandinavian warmth. Miru is also available in two and three bedroom configurations and offers spacious accommodation equipped with two bathrooms.

prioritize biophilic life

Both cabin designs allow residents to create a close connection with the surrounding nature, maximizing natural light and panoramic views while blending into the landscape. At the same time, each cabin ensures that occupants maintain an optimized level of privacy.

During the design process for both cabins, the Koto team focused on creating a building that can co-exist with nature, protect the environment, and encourage biophilic living; a connection between people and nature. “Biophilic architecture and biophilic interior design are not only aesthetic, they have been proven to provide a wide range of lasting benefits, both physical and psychological.” explain the designers.koto designs sustainable cabin retreat with floating sauna for fritton lake in england

FLOATING SAUNA

Koto’s design also includes a floating wood-fired Koto Sauna, located at the end of a wooden pier leading to the lake. Named “Loyly” which translates from Finnish to cloud of steam, the sauna is a sculptural interpretation of the small buildings you see across Europe, from Bothys to Norwegian Hytte. The unit takes the form of a small wood-clad structure with a sloping roof, providing warmth, shelter and the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in nature.

A walk-in consultation to gather input from residents and businesses on Belmont Street and surrounding streets for a new permanent café culture in the area will be held next week.

Aberdeen City Council’s £1.5million investment in the Belmont Quarter will help boost city center employment, create a metropolitan feel that will grow as a dining destination attractive and to become a culturally distinctive neighborhood that will enhance the conservation area.

The drop-in event includes two options for the area of ​​what café culture will look like – outdoor seating with umbrellas that could be up in late fall, or shelter structures that could be set up next spring.



The two-day event, which is complemented by an online consultation, will also include operational plans for how the Belmont neighborhood will operate for deliveries, garbage trucks and other requirements depending on the chosen design.

The event will have designers and engineers on hand to answer questions, and there will also be council officers available from 2-4 p.m. each day to answer any specific licensing questions.

Businesses and residents will continue to be consulted on the draft design over the coming weeks.

Aberdeen to consult on 'cafe culture' designs for Belmont district


A spokeswoman for Aberdeen City Council said: ‘It is fantastic to be able to hold this walk-in event with online consultation and we encourage people who live and work in the Belmont area to come, view what the two proposals are, and provide feedback to the team.

“The cafe culture in the Belmont neighborhood is just one of many exciting changes happening in the downtown area and we look forward to what happens in the months to come.”

The City Centre, New Aberdeen Market and Queen Street projects are part of the City Center Master Plan (CCMP), a regeneration plan that transforms the city center while preserving its proud heritage.

Since its approval in 2015, the CCMP has already delivered several achievements to date, including the redevelopment of Provost Skene’s House, the redevelopment of the Aberdeen Art Gallery, Music Hall, Marischal Square and Broad Street. The regeneration of Union Terrace Gardens will also provide a wheelchair accessible multi-purpose space in the downtown park, including a play park for the first time.



An exciting, one-of-a-kind transformative regeneration of Aberdeen’s city centre, old market and seafront was also given the green light at a council committee meeting last November.

The drop-in event takes place in the Seminar Room, Level 2, Aberdeen Art Gallery, Schoolhill, on 17 and 18 May, from 2-5 p.m., with council officers present from 2-4 p.m. Members of the public and businesses may come forward or make an appointment in advance talk to a team member.

Proposals will also be in line May 17 and people have until May 27 to submit comments.

When Richard McSwain, Master of Architecture student and CU Denver American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) Freedom by design Director, heard about the sanctioned campsites, he started making phone calls to see how the student organization could get involved to make the communities more dignified places to live.

SOS assessments and community building

In December 2020, McSwain reached out to the Denver-based nonprofit Colorado Village Collaborative (CVC) to start the conversation to identify items that Freedom by Design could address, ranging from shade solutions to improved shelters. The City of Denver works with CVC to ensure that Safe Outdoor Space (SOS) sites adhere to city rules, regulations, and permitting constraints.

CVC has three temporary and operational accommodation sites, and they plan to add additional sites this summer. Currently, fishing tents provide shelter for residents, but do little to protect them from the challenges presented by the weather.

As the Freedom by Design team learned more about the venues’ needs, they began designing to meet three goals: meet the need for heated handwashing stations, provide a healthier gathering space and waterproofing shelters.

Design inspiration for safe outdoor spaces

Freedom by Design students researched different small living spaces, tiny houses, and design solutions to improve the quality of life for residents living at SOS sites. Through their research, they were inspired by Conestoga Hut micro-shelters in Oregon. The design of these huts was based on the idea of ​​covered wagons used by pioneers while exploring the American West.

“Why replicate a tent when you can just go out and buy one? McSwain asked. “We were looking at precedents for different types of small shelter structures, like UN refugee tents, and then came across the Conestoga huts that are used in Oregon.”

Freedom by Design students explored using design in three size variations to achieve their safe space goals. The smaller variation would house the heated handwashing stations, the medium variation would provide housing for individuals to withstand all seasons, and the large variation would house a community space, which would also serve as a smoking area to help mitigate second-hand smoke. on the spot.

Design solutions for real-world application

In addition to finding their inspiration for the design, it was also important for the group of students to address the key constraints of the new shelter design.

“We had a few major goals: to address the cost, aesthetics, environmental conditions and mobility of the structure,” McSwain said.

Inexpensive materials were considered for the design of the student organization. Plywood and canvas were used to address both material costs and ease of use. Plywood is affordable and easy to cut, transport and lift. Canvas is used to cover the arched roof of shelters to provide protection against water and fire.

“Some of the ice fishing tents are pentagon shaped, which is not ideal for trying to pitch them on small sites. The main failure points on tents are where the poles come to a point because the fabric tears and leaks along the zippers,” McSwain continued. “So with an arch we have a nice curve, and a canvas cover is flat and even all the way over. Snow and rain get rid of it quite easily. It also gives a nice height so that in the summer when it’s hot it wicks the heat away from the top a bit better. It’s also more comfortable for tall people.

Next Steps for Freedom by Design’s Safe Outdoor Shelters

Freedom by Design built a prototype of their SOS housing design and presented it to the community and CVC on Wednesday, March 30, but their hard work didn’t stop.

“Right now, we’re putting this material together so we can submit it to the city and hopefully get it approved so CVC can use it at future sites,” McSwain said.

“There’s a big gap that we haven’t been able to really explore – getting people to actually use it, give feedback and experience it,” McSwain said. “We’ve had SOS site managers and customer representatives review our design, and there’s a lot of support there, but it hasn’t been occupied by a resident for more than two hours. So there is still a lot to learn.

Freedom by Design is optimistic about placing a prototype on one of the sites for a trial run to get feedback from residents on the site and eventually see their design used in safe and sanctioned outdoor spaces.

Get involved with Freedom by Design at CU Denver

Freedom by Design is a community service program within the nationwide AIAS organization in partnership with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). The program encourages students to provide design solutions to problems within their communities through real-world architecture and design experiences that involve working with clients and connecting with local licensed architects and contracts .

Speaker Cynthia Fishman is the Freedom by Design faculty representative and AXP supervisor. Through participation in Freedom by Design, students can earn Architectural Experience Program (AXP) hours to bring students closer to obtaining a permit.

FARGO — Growing up in South Sudan, Godfrey Tadeo didn’t want to become a rebel or one of Sudan’s lost boys. Being the youngest of five siblings, he was the “last bullet”, his family’s last chance to break out of poverty.

So his parents sent him to high school in neighboring Uganda where he still had to dodge Islamic extremists, but there he discovered he had a talent for architectural design.

“When I was in high school, they had something called technical drawing, and for some reason I was good at it. I got 100 percent pretty much every time,” said Tadeo.

He arrived in the Fargo area in 2000 after the UN refugee agency transferred him from a protected camp.

At first, he worked at a meatpacking plant in West Fargo, but his family’s aspirations for him brought him back to school. In 2007 he joined the US Army and was deployed to Afghanistan where he once again came face to face with extremism.

“When I went to Afghanistan, it was kind of ironic, but I was just doing what I was supposed to do: follow orders,” said Tadeo, who left the army as a sergeant in 2015.

The experience, however, troubled him.

“Too much PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), I couldn’t remember things very well. So much happened in Afghanistan,” Tadeo said. “So I took a little time off, but I always intended to go back to school.”

Now, Tadeo plans to earn a master’s degree in architectural design from North Dakota State University this month. As part of his design thesis, he combined his experience, talent and memories in designing a refugee center and small business incubator he would like to see built in the Fargo area.

Architectural renderings show the interior of a refugee center and small business incubator designed by Godfrey Tadeo, a graduate student at North Dakota State University who hopes his concept will become a reality in the Fargo area.

“When we were doing our thesis, we were asked to come up with the design we wanted to do. And so many projects came to mind, one of them was a PTSD clinic, and then there were green projects, but what captivated me was that no one thought to do something with the refugees, so I watched that and saw that the refugees also have PTSD, and I could talk about that,” Tadeo said.

For now, Tadeo’s plans are only on paper.

“But it is possible. After graduating, I have a family and I have to support my family. So I’ll have to get a job here in town, but I wish someone would pick this up and say it’s interesting. We had Lutheran social services, but they went bankrupt and now there is almost nothing here for refugees,” Tadeo said.

Using shipping containers, African clay, solar panels and spacious ceilings in his design for a refugee center and small business incubator, Tadeo caught the eye of his teacher, Prof. NDSU Ganapathy Mahalingam.

“It was fascinating to work with Godfrey on this project. This is one of my rewards for teaching,” Mahalingam said.

“His choice of shipping containers as the means to assemble this building is based on the frugal mindset of refugees. He shows you by taking those containers and modifying them, creating enough shelter for this harsh climate. Frugality, knowing that they have limited resources is something that is emphasized in Godfrey’s project. It comes from the heart,” said the professor.

The project aims to give refugees around the world a platform where they can leverage their talents and integrate their skills more easily into American society, Tadeo said.

He highlighted the case of a highly trained Sudanese doctor who, after arriving in the United States, had no choice but to work in a slaughterhouse to make ends meet. His qualifications were not recognized; he had a language barrier.

“There is an idea that the refugees who come here are helpless people. He wants to point out that many are educated, they have skills and they have all kinds of behavioral and social knowledge, but all of these things are supposed to be missing and they start at level 101. This project gives them that platform where they can build on what they already have, which is important,” Mahalingam said.

Refugees “arriving in America and immediately having to get up to work, regardless of their education. They have to go to school. Their English isn’t perfect, and so a place like this, if it’s open , will be a place to open people’s minds and show them that there is a way,” Tadeo said.

“It’s a place where early skills and business acumen are recognized and then put to good use in a short period of time so they can become productive members of society,” Mahalingam said.

An African clay walkway, which closely resembles the path Tadeo walked in his homeland, is set to cross the center of the building, which doubles as a greenhouse, capable of growing tropical plants and trees, including mangoes, said Tadeo.

“You have to expose yourself to things that make you want to run away, so having something like that here, remembering where we were walking and bringing that here is a very powerful connection with refugees, especially those who have been through the same a experience like mine,” Tadeo said.

Inside the center, shipping containers would be turned into conference rooms, classrooms and even short-term living spaces for refugees. A park, called the Peace Garden, would surround the compound with the aim of bringing peace to people like the Lost Boys of Sudan.

“Some of the Lost Boys have seen things, and they’ve seen murder and blood, and they come to the United States, and they’re just kids when they’re here, but they’re so much more mature. They have the PTSD in them, and a setup like this would help them want to go to school, and all the frustrations of learning because of all the things going on behind their heads. The healing part, they don’t have never understood that,” Tadeo said.

Designed by renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the Danish Neuroscience Center is an extension of the offerings of the adjacent Aarhus University Hospital (AUH). The plan of the building consciously mimics the folding patterns of the brain to represent the purpose of the space. The building is expected to open in 2026.

“The Danish Center for Neuroscience has evolved into a world-class research and treatment center for understanding and treating the most complex, efficient and adaptive organ in our body – the brain,” BIG said in a statement. Press.

Several buildings stuck together

The collaboration with BIG not only emphasizes the function of a medical facility, but also the integration of education and science in the space.

“The building should – like the brain – function as a space for knowledge sharing that creates new connections, new contexts and common understandings,” said Jens Christian Hedemann Sørensen, professor of neurosurgery and chair of the DNC. “We want to disrupt the way of thinking about physical and mental diseases of the brain as isolated quantities. The location between AUH and AUH Psychiatry and the design of the building by BIG encourages and cements this approach.

Central to BIG’s design is an open atrium. It maximizes the usable space at each level and the connections between workspaces and courtyards.

“The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. Our design for the new Danish Center for Neuroscience in Aarhus replicates the most essential feature of the brain – gyrification – to create more connections and space within limited boundaries,” said Bjarke Ingels, founding partner of BIG.

The design invites natural light and incorporates green spaces at all levels, “making nature and biodiversity an integral part of the hospital’s research and its patients’ healing journey”. At the reception, visitors and patients can access the Experience Center, which showcases the hospital’s latest research, a restaurant and a public garden.
