This design acts as a 21st-century Case Study house, a prototype for exploring the potential for new custom homes within well-established Los Angeles suburbs. The home addresses a complex challenge: providing residents with access to daylight, capturing prevailing breezes, and creating inviting exterior spaces while maintaining a high quality interior spatial experience and a comfortable level of privacy—all on a standard-size suburban lot. Save this picture!Floor Plan Level 1Set on a 50-foot x 120-foot lot, the 3,600-square-foot house has five bedrooms and three baths; the ground floor open plan comprises the kitchen, dining areas, and family/living rooms. The detached garage is 500 square feet.Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe floor plan focuses on the free flow of interior to exterior space while providing the homeowners privacy from the street, alley, and adjacent properties. Construction technologies and materials were selected to support the design. A structural slab-on-grade foundation ensures a seamless indoor/outdoor connection via two oversize, exterior pocket doors on the east-west axis and one large pocket door linking the great room to the courtyard. The entire width and length of the property can be seen from a single point in the kitchen, the heart of the home. Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe building’s considered relationship with the site is particularly evident in its solar orientation. By strategically placing glazed pocket doors, skylights, and windows at circulation corridors, the house does not depend on artificial lighting during the day. A two-story atrium serves as a light well for the family room, rear entry, and the master suite. Glazing was maximized in size, but the number of openings was minimized so that exterior wall insulation would have little interruption. Openings on the east and west elevations are protected with overhangs. Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe home is minimal in massing and modest in material. The second level pulls back from the front yard setback, respecting the scale of the neighborhood. Earth-toned exterior plaster complements the context and is further softened by creeping fig vines. Dimensions were calculated to maximize efficiency and reduce cost and waste. Rooms were sized to eliminate the need for steel columns and beams. Ceiling heights were set at 9’-6” so that a standard 10-foot lumber length could be used with minimal waste. All exterior walls are framed in 2’ x 6’ lumber in order to maximize insulation values.Save this picture!© Francis DreisWhile the modern design formally addresses the challenge of building sensitively in an evolving community that contains many original homes from the tract developments of the 1930s, it also pursues a more humanist concern: Providing sanctuary. Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe home’s living spaces are peaceful, comfortable, and private—qualities that aren’t always associated with modernism. One way the design achieves this is by connecting visually and physically with nature. Every space in the home has an appropriately-scaled, framed view or access to the outdoors. Defined by the family room and master suite, a two-story central atrium showcases a 30-year-old Japanese black pine, a beautiful natural sculpture. The breakfast nook opens onto the front yard, planted with a textured mix of ornamental grasses and olive trees. In contrast, the backyard is a manicured lawn. Save this picture!© Francis DreisAnother way the design achieves a calming effect is by rigorously scaling and sequencing the interior spaces. This results in simultaneous experiences of openness and intimacy; both qualities are essential to creating a sanctuary. Nooks, niches, and small spaces for retreat are carefully carved out of the open floor plan. Even the master shower has a powerful spatial dichotomy: its tall, narrow enclosure is topped by a skylight, opening the closed shaft of space.Save this picture!© Francis DreisProject gallerySee allShow lessWriter’s Shed / Matt Gibson Architecture + DesignSelected ProjectsMerlot Apartment / Clarice Semerene ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Vibia, Allied Maker, Ann Sacks, Badeloft, Bega, Caesarstone, California Faucets, Heath Ceramics, Herman Miller, Lambert & fils, Miele, Paloform, Rich Brilliant Willing, Rimadesio, Room & Board, Vitsœ, Carl Hansen and Son, Christopher Allen, DWR, +10Dal Tile, Harbour Outdoor, Madera Hardwood Flooring, Nelson, Quartzite, Saarinen, The Nogughi Museum, Vintage – Den Mobler Teak Chairs by Erik Buck, Vintage – Morccan area rug, Western/ Windows-10 Save this picture!© Francis Dreis+ 20Curated by María Francisca González Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Woods + Dangaran Area Area of this architecture project 2018 United States “COPY”last_img read more

CFPB needs more coffee and less Kool-Aid

first_img 56SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Henry Meier As General Counsel for the New York Credit Union Association, Henry is actively involved in all legislative, regulatory and legal issues impacting New York credit unions. Whether he’s joining … Web: Details Appearing before the assembled masses of credit union groupies last week, CFPB director Richard Cordray, the benign dictator of Consumer Finance and Oracle of all that is good, told credit unions that “it was time to wake up and smell the coffee: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is not your enemy; on the contrary, it is an important new friend and ally.”Well, Mr. Codray, I enjoy the aroma of my Starbucks French Roast as much as anybody. I am still here to respectfully suggest that you need to drink a little less of your own Kool-Aid: it’s going to your head.Why would credit unions possibly be frustrated by the CFPB, you wonder? Because they are tired of being told that they were not a cause of the financial crisis only to be subjected to the flood of post-crisis regulations. Talk is cheap but regulatory compliance sure isn’t. The CFPB’s authority to “unconditionally exempt any class of covered persons, service providers, or consumer financial products or services,“ from its regulations is broad enough to exempt all credit unions from the QM mortgage requirements, for example. Instead, it has established exemption criteria which penalize smaller credit unions that make more than 500 mortgages or that sell mortgages to the secondary market.I was also a little taken back by the triumphal “I told you so” tone of your prepared remarks. I half expected you to announce “mission accomplished” from an Aircraft carrier.According to you there is “good news all around.” when it comes to mortgage lending. Credit unions are making more mortgage loans and the consumer has “a wider path to the American dream in a mortgage market made stronger by the changes we made.”This is a rehashing of the “you can bake your cake and eat it too” nonsense that has kept this country from having an adult conversation about housing policy. It makes sense to hold reckless institutions responsible for poor underwriting standards; but, let’s not fool ourselves: higher underwriting standards mean fewer people are going to qualify for mortgages than would otherwise be the case. For example, the New York Fed has identified a strange trend in which home prices have risen since 2012 but the aggregate amount of mortgage debt hasn’t.Furthermore, mortgage lending is now more closely tied to credit scores than ever before. What’s more, there is plenty of evidence that tighter under writing standards are one of the factors keeping millennials from buying that first home.You are also really jumping the gun to gloat that hot-headed critics greatly exaggerated litigation fears. Oh Really? Remember that, since many of these regulations kicked in just two years ago cases involving them are only now beginning to work their way through the system.  Why just this week a homeowner on Long Island tried to put off a foreclosure by arguing that Emigrant Bank failed to follow the loss mitigation procedures mandated by 12 CFR §1024.41(g) (Emigrant Savings Bank-Long Island v. Berkowitz, 27142/2012,) Other litigation has taken place in Michigan involving whether the loss mitigation rules should be retroactively applied ( Campbell v. Nationstar Mortgage, 611 F. App’x 288, 296 (6th Cir.) cert. denied, 136 S. Ct. 272, 193 L. Ed. 2d 137 (2015).No one should be surprised that Litigation is coming All you have to do is look at the foreclosure defense litigation that routinely takes place in states like NY, NJ and California, states whose foreclosure mitigation laws provided models for the Bureau’s own requirements, and you quickly realize that more litigation is coming and with it will come absurdly long foreclosures. It takes more than 900 days to foreclose on property in New York which makes it more expensive for residents to get a mortgage.   And, by the way, the know-before-you-owe foreclosure requirements have made it more time consuming to close on mortgages and imposed increased compliance costs on any institution offering mortgage loans.Believe it or not I used to be a defender of the Bureau. Dodd-Frank is a gross abdication of legislative leadership. It’s as if Congress took some of the country’s most vexing problems and told your Bureau to solve them. In addition, I agree with you, credit unions and the CFPB share many of the same goals. After all, credit unions were started largely as a reaction to the indifference of mainstream banks to the needs of ordinary consumers.That being said, it’s inevitable that we won’t be on the same side on many issues. There is one big difference between credit unions and the Bureau: credit unions can go out of business. Credit union CEO’s have to make tough calls every day balancing the desire to do what is best for the consumer against the need to generate enough revenue to keep the doors open. In contrast, the CFPB can craft regulations for an ideal world in which no well-meaning consumer protection costs too much or accomplishes too little to justify its imposition.In short, credit unions have to deal with reality every day. It’s the CFPB that needs a reality check.last_img read more

For the first time in history, Croatia Airlines recorded its two millionth passenger in one year

first_imgCroatia Airlines, the Croatian national airline, recorded its two millionth passenger this year.The jubilee passenger is Nancy Kranjčević from Pula, and he was recorded on the regular international flight OU481 Copenhagen – Zagreb. The two millionth passenger in one year was recorded for the first time in the history of Croatia Airlines, ie since the beginning of passenger transport in May 1991, and by the end of 2017 a total of more than 2,100.000 passengers are expected on the Croatian national carrier’s aircraft. during one year in the history of the company.So far this year, Croatia Airlines has recorded a total increase in passenger traffic of 10 percent, with 11 percent more passengers in international traffic and 7 percent more passengers in domestic scheduled traffic than in 2016. The growth of passenger traffic is, among other things, the result of the introduction of four new seasonal lines in May this year – from Zagreb to Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki and Bucharest, and during this year’s tourist season seasonal flights to Lisbon, Milan, Prague and St. Petersburg continued. Petersburg, which were introduced in 2016. In addition, due to the great interest of passengers, this year’s seasonal flights to Barcelona and Lisbon have been extended to the winter flight schedule 2017/2018, ie they are performed for the first time after the tourist season.Croatia Airlines’ fleet consists of twelve aircraft: four Airbuses 319 (capacity 144 seats), two Airbuses 320 (capacity 174 seats) and six turboprop aircraft Dash 8-Q400 (capacity 76 seats). During this year’s tourist season, two 1000-seat CRJ 100 aircraft were leased.<br />

Campbell keen to capitalise on loan

first_img Press Association Joel Campbell intends to make the most of his loan spell at Villarreal – part of the deal which will see Gabriel Paulista move in the other direction. However, one part of the deal has already been confirmed by Villarreal, with Costa Rica forward Campbell moving to the Yellow Submarines on loan until the end of the season. The 22-year-old has found his first-team chances limited with Arsenal this season, having been integrated into the squad following a loan spell with Olympiacos last season and an impressive World Cup in Brazil. Campbell is eager to make the most of his fresh start in Spain, where he also had a spell at Real Betis in 2012-2013. “I hope to work hard to do things in the best way,” Campbell said on his website, “I want to spend these four months well and succeed here. I am very happy.” Campbell, who could feature against Barcelona on Sunday, added on Twitter: “Ready to work by Villarreal. Excited with this new challenge. “Thanks to the whole family of Arsenal for their messages. I hope to make them proud.” Arsenal moved into the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday with a 3-2 win at Brighton, and will be out to sustain their Barclays Premier League improvement against Aston Villa on Sunday. Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil both scored on their return to the starting XI at the weekend weekend. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes with players of such calibre coming back to full fitness – as England international Jack Wilshere also steps up his rehabilitation – the Gunners can only get stronger over the second half of the campaign. “For a large majority of the season we have been without Mesut, and Aaron (Ramsey) for a spell and Theo as well, so to have those kinds of players back is only good for us, and I am sure they will come back and play a massive role in the rest of our season,” Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain said on Arsenal Player. “As you look at it at the moment, we are still there or thereabouts and there is still a lot of football to be played. “We are still in a really good place in the Champions League, still in the FA Cup and in the league it is tight at the top around the teams in third, fourth and fifth. “Chelsea have a little lead on everyone, but in terms of football to be played I think it is quite exciting to think how the back end of the season could go.” Brazilian defender Gabriel, 24, has received formal approval from the Home Office for a work permit, and is understood to have completed a routine medical at the club’s Hertfordshire training base. Arsenal are yet to announce the transfer, reported to be worth around £11million, with some formalities still to be completed. last_img read more

Real Madrid go head-to-head with Barcelona for Neymar — reports

first_imgBut Mundo adds that “it is clear Neymar wants to play for Barcelona” while Diario Sport agrees, writing that “the winning card Barca continues to hold is the will of the striker to reunite with players like Leo Messi and Luis Suarez. With them he has a great understanding on the pitch and also a strong friendship off it.”Marca believes Madrid also have factors in their favour. “Neymar’s priority is not to go to Barcelona. His priority is to leave the PSG,” wrote Marca, also citing their “magnificent relationship” with PSG, “quite the opposite” of how the French club view Barcelona.Luka Modric is mentioned as a possible makeweight while Philippe Coutinho, who reportedly rejected an offer from Tottenham this week, could be included in an offer from Barcelona.Sport admits whichever team signs Neymar will “inflict a blow on their rivals by snatching a star player from the other’s grasp”.“From now on, it will be Neymar that decides,” Sport added. “Barcelona want the player to go public but he understands such a move would be risky. If Barca and PSG do not reach an agreement he would be stuck in the French capital for a third year.”Share on: WhatsApp NeymarMadrid, Spain | AFP | Real Madrid will rival Barcelona in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar this summer, according to reports in the Spanish press on Friday.Madrid have shifted focus to Neymar after the close of the English Premier League’s transfer window on Thursday ended their hopes of signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.According to Marca, Neymar has “returned to the scene” with the club “believing for some time that the team is lacking a big star up front”.Sports newspaper AS claims the Brazilian has been offered to Madrid by PSG, who are open to selling if they can either recoup the 222 million euros they spent on him in 2017 or receive half that amount, with players included in the deal.It means La Liga’s two greatest rivals are set to go head-to-head in the battle to sign Neymar before the Spanish transfer window closes on September 2.Barcelona newspaper Mundo Deportivo says the 27-year-old will wait until August 20 for Barcelona to make a decisive move, after which “PSG’s number 10 does not rule out any option in order to leave the French champions, where it is clear he does not want to stay any longer.”last_img read more

If this Leafs team didn’t have bad luck, team would have no luck at all

first_imgTo be the best, Leafs must play against the bestLeaf coach Dave McLellan is happy to see two of the top teams in the KIJHL on the schedule during this stretch run.Kamloops Storm lead the Doug Birks Division while Chase Heat is second, two points in front of Sicamous Eagles.“I’d much rather be playing the tougher teams late in the season,” McLellan said.“The only way to get better is to be playing better teams.”McLellan thought the Leafs played an exceptional game Tuesday in Fruitvale against the Hawks, and were unfortunate not to come out on the winning side of the score after carrying the play to Beaver Valley for part of the second and all of the third periods.Karrer appears to be the No. 1 netminderThe success of the Leafs in goal appears to be riding on the shoulders of netminder Joey Karrer.Leaf coach Dave McLellan said the Smithers native will get the starts this weekend to help boost his confidence heading into the playoffs.McLellan said other than an unfortunate goal Tuesday, Karrer played a strong game for Nelson.Leafs finish off regular seasons at home against CastlegarThe Leafs finish off the regular season next weekend with a couple of dates against Murdoch opposition.Nelson travels to Grand Forks to face the Border Bruins before concluding the regular season with a Sunday afternoon tilt at home against Castlegar Rebels. Two weekends to fine-tune a Good Leaf ship that has been has struggled to get all the oars in the water at the same time.And once again there will be a few oars missing when the Leafs take to the road for a Kootenay International Junior Hockey League road trip to Chase (Friday) and Kamloops (Saturday).“It’s been a matter of getting healthy,” said Leaf coach Dave McLellan.“We’ve been looking forward at getting our players back and building consistency. But we’ve haven’t been able to do that since before Christmas with all the injuries.”McLellan, who under the terms of his recent suspension can coach the team during practice but can’t be with the players one hour before and after games, was dealt another blow when star forward Dylan Williamson went down with another injury during Tuesday’s game against Beaver Valley.Williamson, who McLellan said is still having the injury assessed, joins Timothy Nichols, Aaron Brewer and Branden Chow on the injured-reserve list.Also hurt is defenceman Brendan Smith while forward/defenceman Blair Andrews is serving a two-game suspension after receiving a five-minute major for check to the head during Saturday’s win over Grand Forks.“Right now we’re trying to develop the mental focus of playing in a seven-game series,” said McLellan.Defending KIJHL champion Beaver Valley will be Nelson’s opponent when the playoffs begin later this month.last_img read more

KC surges with Hamilton’s leap

first_imgDesperate to regain the title they last won in 2009, Kingston College (KC) have surged to the top of the hill in the early race for the Mortimer Geddes Trophy at the 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships inside the National Stadium.With two finals scored, the purple-hearted unit were leading the points standings with 23 points ahead of Jamaica College (JC), 19, with defending champions Calabar High, which must overcome a testing day on the track, third on 10. They are followed by Excelsior (nine), St Jago (seven) and Campion College (four).KC got off to a strong start yesterday evening, with Yashawn Hamilton securing the first points for the North Street-based school with a 7.01-metre win in the Class Two boys’ long jump event.Excelsior’s Joel Morgan, 6.95m, won the silver medal ahead of Calabar’s Kristoffe Clifford, 6.87m.O’Brien Wasome of JC’s 7.50m mark in the Class One boys’ long jump was enough to give him the win and nine valuable points for his school, with St Jago’s Shawn-d Thompson, 7.27m, claiming second place ahead of third-place finisher Shammawi Wellington (KC), 7.23m.Earlier, in the half lap event, Calabar’s titan, Christopher Taylor, showed no signs of wear after last night’s 400m-record run and was comfortable in winning his heat and posting the fastest time in the Class Two boys’ 200m heats, 21.13.His teammate, Dejour Russell, got in on the action, stopping the clock at 21.14 in the very next heat as St Jago pair Gary Gordon (22.01) and Javad Black (22.12), JC’s Chislon Gordon 22.16 and KC’s Yashawn Hamilton, 22.17, will all be looking to upset the Calabar duo.Class One favourite, Nigel Ellis, is determined to leave Kingston with the sprint double, and the early signs are positive.EASY WINThe in-form sprinter was easy in winning his 200m heat in 21.24 seconds, to lead all qualifiers into the next round of the event.With no Jhevaughn Matherson registered for the event, KC fans were relieved to see Tyreke Bryan, who had the second-fastest qualifying time of 21.33 and seventh fastest qualifier Shivnarine Smalling, 21.47 both securing lanes in the next round.Thiea Shea (Wolmer’s) won his Class Three boys’ 200m heat in a time of 22.42 – the best clocking among all qualifiers – as he beat Clarendon College’s Rahyme Christian, 22.80, into second place.Event favourite Sachin Dennis (STETHS), 22.76, is also safely through to the next round, so, too, is his teammate, Tyrone Barnes, 23.32; Petersfield’s Antonio Watson, 22.90, and Papine’s Shemar Willis, 22.91 – the top qualifiers.Calabar suffered a major setback in the Class Three boys’ 800m heats, with Kevroy Venson, who was expected to bring in maximum points in both the 800m and 1500m, struggling to last place in his two-lap preliminary-round race after battling with flu symptoms.The second Calabar athlete in the event, Rivaldo Marshall, also failed to book a spot in the next round, with St Jago’s medal favourite, Jevana Edwards, leading all qualifiers to the semi-finals with a 2:06.23 time. Shanthamoi Brown (KC), 2:06.51, was the next best qualifier in the event, followed by Donald Quarrie’s Jordan Anderson, 2:08.44 and JC’s Malik Ricketts, 2:08.85, also securing semi-final lanes.The Calabar coaching staff, which outlined that Venson was cleared to compete, has indicated that the athlete will line up in the 1500m heats this morning.St Jago’s Keenan Lawrence is expected to push for the Class Two boys’ 800m record of 1:52.27 and it’s about time. Aldwyn Sappleton’s (Edwin Allen) mark of 1:52.27 has been on the books since 1997, and with Lawrence already clocking 1:53.82 this season, there are strong signs that he will be able to carve his name in history.Lawrence was comfortable in qualifying from his heat, clocking 1:58.21 for the win as Dwight Mason (STETHS), 1:57.40 – his fastest time this season, was responsible for the fastest time in the preliminary round.Bellefield’s Shevan Parks, who cruised to 1:56.09 in the heats and STETHS’ Jauavney James, 1:56.79, should take their Class Two rivalry into the Class One 800m and could push each other to special performances in what is a keenly anticipated clash at this year’s championships.It was, however, Rogay Granston (Holmwood), 1:55.29, who posted the fastest time in yesterday’s heats, with St Jago’s Leon Clarke next best with 1:55.30 and Nathan Brown (Excelsior), 1:55.80, also making a statement in qualifying.Warren Barrett Jr (Calabar) 49.25m was the best effort in the boys’ Class One discus qualifiers, with Munro’s Kino Dunkley, reminding all that this will be one of the closest events at these championships with a 48.53m qualifying mark of his own.Petersfield’s Kevin Nedrick, 46.29m and Munro’s Vikarie Elliott, 46.13m, also placed their names in the conversation, along with JC’s Vashon McCarthy, 44.45m and Hydel’s Derrick Spencer, 44.05m, also among the top qualifiers to the final.last_img read more
