This LEED-certified home, located in Long Island, New York, is called Cocoon because its round walls form a Cocoon shape towards the northern and western neighbors. This rounded enclosed half of the house provides shelter and privacy. The other glass side of the house, facing south, takes in ocean breezes and open views. The cedar shingle cladding blends in with the architectural material palette of the historic neighborhood. By tuning in to given site conditions, and with the help of environmental technologies such as photovoltaic panels, the architectural design serves both the environment and wellbeing.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Caylon HackwithThe 16-foot-high Long Island cottage is split in two: ‘cocooned’ into a soft opaque shape that provides privacy, and transparent and crystalline to allow for views onto an undisturbed landscape. Its L-shaped 1730 square foot footprint is shaped by the legal restriction to build at a 150-foot radius from the wetlands and to keep a 35-foot distance from the adjacent properties. Luckily, the view of the greenery towards the ocean faces south and east, so that the southern glass façade provides both views and passive heating gain.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithThe thermal masses of the thick northern/western walls, supported entirely by a timber structure, keep away humidity and retain heat while providing privacy. The large unbroken sliding doors connect inhabitants with the smells, feel and sounds of the garden and ocean in the distance. In a structure that partakes in the natural landscape, a comfortable temperature is primarily achieved through passive strategies. The sliding doors open to catch prevailing southern breezes from the Atlantic Ocean that temper the heat in the warmer months. In the winter the glass facade collects heat from the southern sun, and in the summertime, interior shades cut 50 percent of the solar heat gain.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithThe sensual experience of the sun in a structure that is half opaque and half exposed guides the framework of the design. In the half of the cottage that is crystalline and transparent, sunlight filters through the translucent colored skylights reflect off of the water cistern and enter through the glass facades. The skylights above the hallway of the bedroom wing are based on the color theory of Goethe, used by J.M. William Turner in his 19th c. paintings of sunlight above water. The colors range from vermilion red, which signals sunset and rest, above the master bedroom, to deep yellow, which signals zenith and activity, nearest the living room.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithGeometric patches of colored sunlight from the skylights and glimmering water reflections from the reflecting pool/cistern project onto the interior thick white ovoid back wall, which is punctured by just a few small windows. The changing daylight on the round projection screen connects to solar rhythms throughout the day, directing attention to biorhythms in the passing of seasonal and diurnal cycles, marking hours through slowly moving light patches. It’s meant to serve as a cinematic screen, its round shape abstracting the play of light and shadow, cocooning the interior like an ocean wave with the light hitting its surface.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithProject gallerySee allShow lessOnline Masterclass: How Online Media can Boost your Company’s Image and Growth?LectureThe Swan Science Museum / Rurban StudioSelected Projects Share “COPY” “COPY” Houses Architects: nea studio Year Completion year of this architecture project Nina Edwards Anker Year:  CopyHouses, Sustainability•New York, United States Structural Engineers: center_img Lead Architect: Save this picture!© Caylon Hackwith+ 39Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/926297/cocoon-house-nea-studio Clipboard LaufsED, Will Laufs Manufacturers: Unalam Mechanical Engineers: Electrical Engineers: Avioworks, Michael Edwards United States Cocoon House / nea studioSave this projectSaveCocoon House / nea studio Photographs CopyAbout this officenea studioOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityNew YorkOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on October 11, 2019Cite: “Cocoon House / nea studio” 11 Oct 2019.

Nageswara Rao were presiding over the matter in a Special Bench and, noting that there was a change of situation since April, stated that the High Court’s rules for virtual hearings would extend to trial matters as well as appellate proceedings. Today’s Order, therefore, notes that “there has been a change in situation since April, 2020. In many States, the situation has eased and it has been possible to even commence hearings in congregation. We must say that the system of Video Conferencing has been extremely successful in providing access to justice”. After altering the April 6 order by substituting sub-para (vii) of Paragraph 6, the Apex Court also observed that several High Courts have framed their Rules already and those who have not, “shall do so having regard to the circumstances prevailing in the State. Till such Rules are framed, the High Courts may adopt the model Video Conferencing Rules provided by the E-Committee, Supreme Court of India to all the Chief Justices of the High Court”. In today’s hearing, Attorney-General KK Venugopal apprised the Court of the success of virtual hearings, and also added that there were, however, technical glitches and that Justice Chandrachud could find the best platform for the conduct of video conferencing. Justice Chandrachud, who is also the Chairman of the E-Committee, informed the Counsels present that tenders had been issued for the same. “We have a national tender for High Court and District Court so that we can have a common virtual hearing platform. Now, we either have Zoom, Cisco or Vidyo. A Committee of 4 High Court judges has been appointed and they formulated rules which was circulated to all the High Courts. 11 High Courts have adopted the model rules”, stated Justice Chandrachud. At this juncture, the CJI posited the proposition that High Courts would be allowed to frame the rules for themselves as well as for lower courts as resources and Wi-Fi differed from High Court to High Court. There was further a difference in the degree of e-literacy amongst advocates. A discussion then ensued on the usage of fibre optic networks and satellites. The CJI stated, “Initially we wanted the Centre to give us a satellite, but we were advised that it was not a good idea and that fibre optic network would be better. However, as fibre optic network is not present in North-East, a satellite could be used there. This will help tremendously.” To this, the AG submitted that the National Informatics Centre (NIC) was dealing with the same. The CJI informed the AG that Justice Chandrachud was in touch with the NIC, but the Centre had to make a binding statement before the Court. Justice Chandrachud touched the aspect of how some degree of financial help would be required from the Centre once the project was initiated on a pan-India basis; a Parliamentary Committee had submitted a report on the E-Courts project and the report claimed that the infrastructure of the Courts needed to be upgraded. The AG then informed the Court that smartphones, especially in rural areas, were enough to conduct hearings. He also mentioned that live hearing could be on the Court’s agenda so that hearings could be witnessed across the country. Senior Advocate Harish Salve, appearing on behalf of Reliance Jio, informed the Bench that they had the best optical fibre network and, was accordingly instructed by the Court to get in touch with the e-Committee. Justice Chandrachud then said, “We are also looking to set up an e-Sewa Kendra in High Courts which can help lawyers who don’t have the basic infrastructure for VC hearings. Centre will need to provide financial assistance. 3350 kendras will be needed for 3350 courts”. Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, on the basis of whose letter the Supreme Court had taken suo moto cognizance of the instant matter, then made submissions pertaining to infrastructural changes to the Supreme Court. “There could be a cubicle area in the annexe building where lawyers can attend the virtual hearings. Transfer and bail pleas can only be heard by VC. The Media needs to the given a separate kiosk for covering of proceedings and they will be saved from running around and flood the Court corridors. Another library can also be created where lawyers can wait”, submitted Singh. The Court made a note of this and informed Singh that a Committee would be constituted, comprising of Supreme Court judges, as well as people from NIC and PWD, and Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta, and the suggestions could be given to them. Before concluding, the Court informed the Counsels present that a decision would be taken on the matter soon. The matter will now be listed post the Diwali holidays.
