Site Conditions The project is located on a stunning but rather restricted site overlooking Griffin Bay on San Juan Island. The most practical area to build was exactly where three beautiful old growth trees had already chosen to live. A prior architect, in a prior design, had proposed chopping them down and building right in the middle of the site. From our perspective, the trees were an important essence of the site and respectfully had to be preserved. As a result we squeezed the programmatic requirements, kept the clients on a square foot restriction and pressed tight against property setbacks. A further issue was that the site backed up against the county road therefore establishing visual and acoustic privacy was a significant concern. These became the primary initiators of the parti. Save this picture!© Jay GoodrichDesign Approach The delineating concept is a stone wall that sweeps from the parking to the entry, through the house and out the other side, terminating in a hook that nestles the master shower. This is the symbolic and functional shield between the public road and the private living spaces of the home owners. All the primary living spaces and the master suite are on the water side, the remaining rooms are tucked into the hill on the road side of the wall. Save this picture!© Jay GoodrichOff-setting the solid massing of the stone walls is a pavilion which grabs the views and the light to the south, east and west. Built in a position to be hammered by the winter storms the pavilion, while light and airy in appearance and feeling, is constructed of glass, steel, stout wood timbers and doors with a stone roof and a slate floor. The glass pavilion is anchored by two concrete panel chimneys; the windows are steel framed and the exterior skin is of powder coated steel sheathing.Save this picture!© Jay GoodrichProject gallerySee allShow lessSebrae Headquarters / gruposp + Luciano MargottoSelected ProjectsAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XLArticles Share Area:  2800 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePrentiss + Balance + Wickline ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on April 01, 2011Cite: “North Bay Residence / Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects” 01 Apr 2011.

The homeowners were attracted to the 40’ x 120’ lot for its central location in Seattle’s East Capitol Hill neighborhood. They approached SHED Architecture & Design looking for an economical, efficient, low-maintenance, and modern version of a traditional Seattle house – one with primary living spaces on the main floor and three bedrooms above. Having come from a culture with a tradition of courtyard houses, creating comfortable outdoor spaces with free- owing connections to the interior living areas was paramount.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe social family chef wanted the kitchen to occupy a central and commanding position in the house with easy access to the backyard patio. Large floor-to-ceiling sliding doors flank the east and west ends of the house, exposing an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space ideal for entertaining. The kitchen’s minimal palette of bamboo, r, cork, and concrete allow the natural materials to take center stage without overpowering the functional details including a custom stainless steel pot rack. In order to achieve the desired aesthetic and budget-level, the designers selected cabinets from Ikea and created custom bamboo cabinet fronts and r wraps with recessed pulls. The bamboo material was selected for and sets the tone for the rest of the house.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe house sits on a well-traveled arterial along a bus line and is flanked by two multi-unit buildings: to the south a rental house that extends the length of the property line with several windows along that façade; to the north, a triplex with a south-facing entry court encroaches upon the original plot by means of an easement. By limiting windows along the sides of the house and focusing the glazing towards the east and west, the home establishes a strong connection to its front and rear yards while protecting its occupants from the heavily used side-yards of the neighbors. A walled and elevated terrace extending from the sunken living room claims the front yard as occupiable space and shields the fully glazed living spaces from passersby. This terrace and the adjacent front entry are partially framed by white walls and ceilings that extend from the interior, welcoming and protecting visitors. Corrugated metal siding and concrete site walls were used where privacy was desired, while wood windows, doors, and siding were used at the sheltered open ends where people interact directly with the building’s exterior.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe home was also designed with the environment in mind. A low-maintenance high-performance enclosure was achieved by using an effective combination of advanced framing (required 30% less lumber), triple-pane windows protected by aluminum plate ‘visors,’ and metal siding. Additionally, a south-facing light monitor with a motorized north-facing awning window creates a stack effect for ventilation while providing ample daylight. Inside, a high-efficiency boiler, indirect water storage tank and in-floor radiant heating provide heat controlled by Nest thermostats. Natural light, open spaces, and simple materials come together to create a private sanctuary for the homeowners to cook, entertain and recharge.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiProject gallerySee allShow less10 Archaeological Sites That Every Architect Should Visit in PeruArchitecture City GuideCreative Kitchen Designs and Their Details: The Best Photos of the WeekArticles Share Manufacturers: AEP Span, Hansgrohe, BlueStar, Duravit, Fisher & Paykel, Grohe, Ikea, Miele, PentalQuartz, Blue Star, Globus, Lindal, Plyboo Contractor: Projects Structural Engineer: Harriott Valentine Engineers “COPY” Area:  2458 ft² Photographs Capitol Hill House / SHED Architecture & DesignSave this projectSaveCapitol Hill House / SHED Architecture & Design Architects: SHED Architecture & Design Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Rafael Soldi+ 28 Sharelast_img read more

Scented oils create the olfactory illusion of the scene on screen, while sensory boxes containing items normally found in that scenario produce the tactile sensation.The app adds visual and auditory involvement through the selected scene, and any room is instantly transformed into this new space, the Variety article said.In a seaside scene, the app displays a sunny beach and clear blue seawater on the screen, and a scented oil concoction in a vial smells of sunscreen, while crashing waves can be heard through iPad speakers. The seaside sensory box contains shells and a kinetic sand that feels like sand but doesn’t leave anything on the user’s hands.Gomes’ idea for Healing Spaces came from her personal connection with dementia. Her grandmother battled with Alzheimer’s in her later years.“I thought ‘it’d be nice to make something I wish I had at that time,” she tells Variety. “Back then I had no knowledge of her condition, and no idea how to interact with her.”She researched on the interactivity of video games and how it could merge with dementia care, and multi-sensory environments, or MSEs, attracted her interest. She took the concept before her advisors at USC’s School of Gerontology, who in turn connected her to the Front Porch Center for Innovation and Well-Being in Pasadena.Before long, she was doing pilot tests of eight patients at Front Porch.Currently, the demo has only the Seaside and Forest scenes, but Gomes says she plans to add even more landscapes. She also plans to put out an online tutorial where caregivers can learn to create their own sensory boxes and landscapes.“Seeing our current ‘Healing Spaces’ demo in action at Villa Gardens has been incredibly insightful,” she says in the Variety story. “I feel there’s still a lot more to explore when it comes to different interaction and play patterns before we think about expanding content-wise.”The report said Tanya Mazzolini, manager of the “Summer House memory care unit at Front Porch, and Megan Hee Soo Park, Field Project Coordinator and Trainer, have been helping in the project since its planning stages.“We do work with students all the time so we are familiar and are very appreciative of passion and passion projects that are school-based,” Park tells Variety. “It was extremely rewarding getting to work with Gabi and help her hone in on what she really wanted to do – whilst of course still managing the expectations of the community and staff. The foundation for which this idea stemmed was genuine and because we had access to Gabi and her brain (and heart), it felt much more personal than if we were working with a company.”Gomes is currently pursuing her MFA in Interactive Media and Games Design at USC. She obtained her BFA in Visual Communication-Digital Media, Magna Cum Laude, from the American University in Dubai.For more information about Healing Spaces, visit www.aboutgabi.com/healing-spaces.

This waiver, put into effect on April 1 and originally set to expire on May 31, is intended to alleviate the cost burden and stress on impacted members of paying for care, allowing them to focus on recovery.“Kaiser Permanente understands the financial impact that COVID-19 has had on our members and the communities we serve and is committed to ensuring they have access to the care they need during this time of crisis,” said Greg Adams, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente. “This move aims to alleviate any stress about paying for care, as well as any hesitancy to seek needed care. The path forward through this pandemic must include identifying, treating and tracing as many cases of COVID-19 as possible as we work to suppress this virus.”Kaiser Permanente’s elimination of member out-of-pocket costs applies to all fully insured benefit plans, in all markets, unless prohibited or modified by law or regulation. It will apply for all dates of service from April 1 through Dec. 31, 2020, unless superseded by government action or extended by Kaiser Permanente. This waiver does not automatically apply to self-funded customers who directly administer health benefits to their employees. Kaiser Permanente has encouraged self-funded customers to adopt this change.Kaiser Permanente suspended all terminations for non-payment of premium or out of pocket expenses from March 15 through May 31. In May, Kaiser Permanente further extended terminations for non-payment through June 30 for Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Family and small group members.This waiver does not automatically apply to self-funded customers who directly administer health benefits to their employees, and non-urgent or emergent out-of-network claims for tiered benefit product customers.

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Home / Daily Dose / Montgomery Testifies: “Public Service Is An Honor” October 26, 2017 1,914 Views Thursday morning, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs met to conduct a hearing on the nomination of Brian Montgomery, as the Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Federal Housing Commissioner.Committee Chairman Sen. Michael Crapo (R-Idaho) began the hearing with his opening remarks—stating that if confirmed, the nominees will play a major role in promoting access to safe and affordable housing for families across America.In addition, Sen. Crapo expressed his thoughts on Montgomery’s nomination as he urged his colleagues for a confirmation without delay.“Brian Montgomery is an ideal candidate to take up that mantle, given that he has done it before,” Sen. Crapo said. “He provided steadfast leadership at the helm of FHA between 2005 and 2009, during one of the most trying times that housing markets have ever seen.”Montgomery, who is now Vice Chairman of The Collingwood Group, a Washington D.C.-based advisory firm that he co-founded, served with distinction in the Executive Office of the President during the Administration of President George W. Bush before transitioning to his role as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and FHA Commissioner under Presidents Bush and Obama.In his testimony, Montgomery said he was humbled by the confidence the committee placed in him 12 years ago, as he sincerely hopes he earned their trust.“Some of my Republican friends and colleagues still ask why I agreed to serve in a Democratic Administration and my answer has always been the same: “they asked for my help.” It was that simple,” Montgomery said.“Now when I’m asked why I would want to return to HUD, the answer is just as simple: “I believe I can make a positive difference,” he continued.During the hearing, Montgomery said: “Public service is an honor that I take very seriously.”Montgomery stated that if confirmed, he will again do his best to further equal access to affordable rental and homeownership opportunities, and seek solutions to restore vitality to the housing market.However, during a series of questions, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) expressed her apprehensions toward Montgomery’s nomination.“Mr. Montgomery may have the best of intentions,” Sen. Warren continued. “But we can never expect the American people to trust Washington if this kind of revolving door continues.”Despite Sen. Warren’s questioning, other committee members stated their hope for Montgomery’s confirmation, including Ranking Member Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) said during the hearing that housing finance today is not sustainable. However, he thinks with Montgomery’s confirmation there is room for improvement.“We’ve got an opportunity to do something constructive,” Sen. Corker said.In addition, other industry leaders have reacted. Lindsey Johnson, President and Executive Director of the U.S. Mortgage Insurers (USMI), released a statement following the hearing reporting her opinions toward Montgomery’s nomination.“The FHA serves an incredibly important role for many low-to-moderate income borrowers,” Johnson said. “We are confident that as FHA Commissioner, Brian Montgomery will continue to be a champion for a robust housing finance system that strikes the appropriate balance between the conventional market backed by private capital and government-backed FHA loans.”In anticipation of Montgomery’s confirmation hearing, Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado expressed why Montgomery is the right choice for FHA.“Montgomery did more than just educate. He listened. During his time at Collingwood, Montgomery had the unique opportunity to obtain candid perceptions from the residential mortgage servicing industry and keenly understand the impediments that burdensome regulations place upon the development of homeownership.”As the hearing adjourned, Sen. Crapo said as the next step toward the confirmation process the committee will send further questions to the nominees by November 1, 2017.
