The site is located in Camberwell, Victoria on a unique L shape block, overlooking a leafy park. The existing architecture is rendered precast at first floor, sitting on external clinker brick planes at its base. Its living areas were originally situated at first floor.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe brief was mostly pragmatic. More space for a large family, better zoning, and importantly to create a better connection to the outdoors but not lose the stunning views of the neighbouring parkland.  To resolve this common negotiation, we created a new split level for the living areas and the entry experience was re-routed to this new centre which now served as a connecting element to very clear zoning, Kids, Parents, Guests, Living and outdoors.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeSave this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe feeling of being in the new space is of standing on-top the fence, in total connection with the park, with the split level allowing a lofty ceiling to accept the leafy aspect. The pavilion concept emerged organically from here. Timber posts form the boundaries of a “pavilion” and support a timber lined canopy overhead. The rhythm of these posts creates a tactility and depth to the edg-es of the space, modulating the hardness of the glass surface. The external clinker brick planes re-appear to bookend the new interior, suggesting that the living areas are an external space. Sim-ple ceramic pendant lights drape down at each post location and a dramatic fireplace reinforce the verticality of both the space and the neighbouring trees.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe space defers to its mid-century roots in its horizontality, honesty in steel connections and braces, natural materials and joinery details. An external venetian blind enlarges the ubiquitous 50’s venetian, and the space is furnished with mid-century but forward looking furniture.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe new living areas have been sited to face north east and north west. Large expanses of glass are utilized take in the natural beauty and allow winter sun to penetrate deep into the space. To bal-ance the large expanses of glass, we used a high performance insulated glazed unit with a low E coating. Save this picture!Elevations + SectionLarge internal walls of face brick have been judiciously placed to allow their thermal mass to ac-cept morning, midday and afternoon sun, and regulate internal temperatures all year around. Sun penetration is regulated with northern eaves and an external venetian that spans the entire length of the main north eastern and north western façades.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeAll new spaces are naturally cross ventilated, and all natural timber Is native plantation oak. High level clerestory windows are protected from the late western sun by deep fins than mirror the rhythm of glazing and architectural breakup on the existing home. These serve to block hot sun, but also catch the colour of the late afternoon sun to create a warm ambience in the lofty spaces.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeProject gallerySee allShow lessBorders and Territories: Identity in PlaceSymposiumThick / SpinaguSelected Projects Share ArchDaily CopyHouses•Camberwell, Australia Photographs Camberwell House / AM ArchitectureSave this projectSaveCamberwell House / AM Architecture “COPY” Camberwell House / AM Architecture Manufacturers: Focus Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description 2016 Architects: AM Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Area:  550 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAM ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCamberwellAustraliaPublished on March 09, 2018Cite: “Camberwell House / AM Architecture” 08 Mar 2018.

The proposal of the cabin, chalet m, in São Lourenço da Serra, was to make the smallest area possible for the requested program, so that the contact with nature is the main actor on the experience. As minimalism was the main intention of the clients, in addition to the difficulty of access to the land, It was proposed a solution of 18m ² with use of dry materials and on-site assembly, since there is no access for larger trucks. Save this picture!© André ScarpaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© André ScarpaThe implantation followed the criterion of existing glades in the forest, in combination of the search for the best views to the mountain across of the valley.

The report revealed a 3 percent year over year increase of single family rent prices in October 2018, compared to 2.7 percent around the same period last year. Low rental home inventory, relative to demand, has spurred the growth in single-family rent prices, the report indicated. The SFRI reflected an upward spike in rent prices between 2010 and 2018. However, the increase in year over year rent prices have slowed since they peaked at 4.2 percent in 2016, projecting stability over the past year at a monthly average of 2.9 percent.  Low-end rentals saw a 3.9 percent year over year increase—a drop from 4.1 percent last year. High-end rentals, on the other hand, increased 2.6 percent in October 2018, up from 2 percent in October 2017. Las Vegas reflected the highest year-over-year increase in single-family rents in October 2018 at 6.6 percent, the report found. Phoenix followed closely at 6.4 percent. Orlando experienced the third highest year-over-year rent increase at 5.3 percent, down 0.6 percent from September 2018. According to the report, the growth in rent prices in both Orlando and Phoenix is driven by employment growth of 4.4 percent and 3.7 percent year over year, respectively. The lowest rent price increase was recorded at 0.3 percent in Seattle this month—also the lowest year-over-year rent growth for the metro since 2010.The report indicated that metros with limited new construction, low rental vacancies, and strong local economies are key drivers of stronger rent growth. Lowest employment growth was recorded in St. Louis at 2.5 percent. The report pointed out that disaster-affected areas such as Houston metro area experienced a growth of 2.4 percent year over year in October 2018. “While employment growth helps feed rent growth, this relationship doesn’t always hold up, especially for cities with very high rents,” said Molly Boesel, Principal Economist at CoreLogic. Though the overall outlook for the single-family rental sector remains positive, it can be hard to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of the SFR market. Focusing on how to build, manage and grow investment opportunities, 2019 will see an array of housing and mortgage professionals come together at The Guest House of Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee between March 11-13 for the Single Family Rental Summit. The Summit will feature subject-matter experts who will answer questions and offer viable solutions related to property management, acquisition, disposition, and financing.

In this episode, hear from John Lynch, CEO of PCMA, and Holden Lewis, a housing and mortgage Specialist for Nerd Wallet.Lynch, an executive member of the Non-Prime Lending Council, brings updates on how the industry is working with borrowers to ensure there are no disruptions in service during this time.Lynch notes that “we’re waiting for the Fed to step in and support non-agency RMBS,” though he notes that it is probably low on list of Fed’s priorities. According to to the FHFA, when a mortgage is in a mortgage-backed security (MBS), Fannie Mae servicers with a scheduled payment are responsible for advancing the principal and interest payment regardless of borrower payments.Later on, Lewis will be discussing mortgage rate trends in the months ahead. He will also discuss the Fed’s announcement to purchase MBS to stabilize the mortgage market.The FHFA is currently instructing the GSEs to main loans in COVID-19 forbearance plans in MBS pools for at least the duration of the forbearance plan.Mortgages that are delinquent for more than four months, historically, were purchased out of MBS pools by the GSEs. Loans with COVID-19 payment forbearance shall be treated “like a natural disaster event” and will remain in the MBS pool.You can watch the full episode here or at the embed below.

first_imgUS Coast Guard(CLEVELAND, Ohio) — An ice floe became a nightmare for dozens of fishermen in Lake Erie on Saturday afternoon after rising temperatures caused the chuck of ice to float away from shore.The U.S. Coast Guard was forced to rescue 46 ice fishermen near Catawaba Island, Ohio, after the sheets broke free and began floating away with them on it. When the ice began to break and separate from the shore, about 100 other fishermen were able to get back on land. The Coast Guard was called to rescue the remaining fishermen with help from Catawaba Island Fire, Put-in-Bay Fire and Southshore Towing.“As soon as we got our lines down a guy started screaming and that’s when we knew something had happened,” fisherman James Gibelyou told Cleveland ABC affiliate WEWS. “Running across, guys were falling in,” Gibelyou continued. “I decided to stay back; I knew better to wait for rescue.”Gibelyou said he waited a couple hours for rescue and floated almost 2 miles out into the lake. There were no injuries reported.The high temperature in Sandusky, just a few miles south of Catawaba Island, was a relatively balmy 41 degrees on Saturday. The high just four days earlier was 19 degrees.The water temperature in Lake Erie was 33 degrees off Toledo, Ohio, on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. Ice fishing is a popular pastime along the northwest coast of Ohio. Walleye, yellow perch and smallmouth bass are all common in the western basin during the winter season, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife.“As temperatures begin to rise, the Coast Guard strongly urges people not to go out onto ice,” the service said in a statement. “Ice may look safe but it is difficult to determine the thickness visually and the increase in warm weather will continue to melt and weaken the ice.”Everyone was rescued by 11:15 a.m., the Coast Guard said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(SANTA CLARITA, Calif.) — Friends and family of the two teenagers gunned down at their Santa Clarita, California, high school were joined by local officials, administrators, faith leaders and first responders at an emotional vigil to remember their too-short lives. “Well over 10,000 glow sticks” were lit up by those who came to Santa Clarita’s Central Park Sunday night, said Cameron Smyth, Santa Clarita’s mayor pro tem.The Thursday morning attack in the Saugus High School quad killed 15-year-old Gracie Anne Muehlberger and 14-year-old Dominic Blackwell, wounded three other victims and “shattered our sense of safety,” Santa Clarita Mayor Marsha McLean said at the vigil.One of Muehlberger’s two older brothers, Riley Muehlberger, recounted at the vigil the last time he saw her, when he surprised her at her 15th birthday dinner last month after texting her that her present was coming in the mail.“I only had four days back home and I’m so happy my last memory with you was giving you a big hug,” he said, overcome with emotion.“I woke you up and hugged you and you hugged me back even though you were half asleep. I never could’ve imaged this hug would be my last,” he said.On the last morning of her life, Muehlberger was seen on her home’s door camera leaving for school.“She left with a pep in her stride like she knew where she wanted to go,” her father said in a letter read on his behalf. “Nobody could’ve imagined what would unfold.”Addison Koegle, a best friend of Muehlberger, was shot and survived. In an audio message played at the vigil, the recovering teen said, “I am doing well and I am at home with my family.”Koegle said her friend of six years “changed my life for the better.”“All of the dances we made up, the performances we did, the lemonade stands we did to try and make money. Gracie was my childhood. She taught me what real love was and if I wanted something so badly I could do anything and everything to achieve it,” Koegle said. “I wish I could be around her just one last time.”“I’ve only known Dom since about September but it’s felt like a lifetime because we became such fast friends,” Koegle added about the boy killed in the attack. “We grew very close very fast. Dom had a great soul, a kind heart, a loving spirit and so much more. … I will miss him every single day.”As Koegle heals, she vowed to “make something amazing out of this horrible situation. Gracie would have wanted me to.”The suspected gunman, a 16-year-old boy, shot himself and has since died, authorities said. A motive is not clear.Saugus High School Principal Vince Ferry, getting choked up, told those gathered Sunday night, “This vigil is the first time I’ve spoken publicly, and want my first words to be focused on Gracie and Dominic and their families.”“This will be beyond hard,” Ferry said. “Through our tears, our hugs, our words of kindness, our remembrances of Gracie and Dominic, we will become stronger. Strength is not the withholding of tears or the waving off of pain. Strength is the ability to welcome our tears in the midst of pain.”“In time, not tonight, we will be able to discuss and look back on the acts of heroism demonstrated by many students, staff, first responders and neighbors. But for tonight, we are here to grieve the loss of two teenagers, two friends,” Ferry said before pausing with emotion.“Two students, two siblings and two children,” Ferry continued. “Tonight, we grieve for Gracie and Dominic and have hope for the healing of our community.” Blackwell, the oldest of four brothers, “brought love and joy to everyone he’s encountered,” his uncle said.Emma Bartels described Blackwell as her “happy and goofy” friend who walked her to class.“I’m going to miss his infectious smile, his sense of humor. It will be a long, painful walk to class without him,” Bartels said. “We can honor him by remembering him.”In the wake of the “senseless violence,” Superintendent Vicki Engbrecht told the crowd, “we have united to care for each other and begin the slow process of healing, knowing that none of us will really ever be the same again.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

first_imgSeabirds show remarkable variability in migration strategies among individuals and populations. In this study, we analysed 47 migrations of 28 brown skuas Catharacta antarctica lonnbergi breeding on King George Island in the Maritime Antarctic. Brown skuas from this population used a large area during the non-breeding period north of 55°S, including parts of the Patagonian Shelf, Argentine Basin and South Brazil Shelf, areas which are characterised by high levels of marine productivity. However, individual birds utilised only a subset of these areas, adopting 1 of 4 distinct migration strategies to which they were highly faithful between years, and showed high repeatability in departure and arrival dates at the breeding ground. Although they spent the majority of the non-breeding season within a particular region, almost all individuals used the same area in the late winter, exploiting its seasonal peak in productivity. Overall, these results indicate consistent individual variation in migration strategies that may reflect a combination of genetic control and individual experience, but with considerable flexibility to shift distribution in response to prevailing environmental conditions.last_img read more
