The sloping property on the edge of the village next to the mighty monastery offers an unobstructed view southwards over meadows and forests. This special location prompted us to glaze the entire south side of the saddle roof house right up to the gable. An essential goal of the design and the express wish of the client was to use future-oriented, sustainable materials and to integrate the building harmoniously into its surroundings.Save this picture!© David MatthiessenExcept for the parts in contact with the ground, the house was built as a timber structure. The sloped floor is made of exposed concrete. A recess on the north side marks the roofed entrance to the house and the garage. One single flight of stairs, lit by a large living room window, leads from the spacious, bright entrance area to the upper floor. The private rooms face north-east on the valley side, while the living area with its glass front opens up to the south-west. A gallery suspended from the roof provides space for a study and partially creates a gable-high living area. Since a small bathroom has already been installed in the gallery, a guest apartment or children’s room can be divided off later by inserting a partition wall.Save this picture!© David MatthiessenSave this picture!Floor plan level 1Save this picture!© David MatthiessenThe open space allows daylight to reach the entrance hall on the ground floor and visually connects the differently used levels of the house. The vertical room-to-room circulation made corridors unnecessary and thus maximised the living space. The result is a very personal, unique living profile and a generous, flowing ambiance.Save this picture!© David MatthiessenExposed concrete, wood and glass characterise the entire design of the house, both inside and out. Walls and ceilings are largely made of silver fir, the floors of ash. The kitchen unit of black Nanotech panels contrasts effectively with the light wood.

In the middle of the south side, a free-standing exposed concrete table extends the deck, and to the west, a simple metal staircase leads into the garden. The wide overhanging gable roof shades and protects this outdoor living space and the small balcony in front of the gallery. Vertical wooden slats on the south side and in front of the large bathroom window in the east provide privacy and shading while preserving the transparency of the façade design.Save this picture!© David MatthiessenProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse with a Brick Veil / Studio LotusSelected ProjectsTen Bamboo Studio Art Gallery / SITUATE ArchitectureSelected Projects Share House R / Dietrich | Untertrifaller ArchitektenSave this projectSaveHouse R / Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten Save this picture!© David Matthiessen+ 15Curated by Paula Pintos Share Houses “COPY” CopyHouses•Albstadt, Germanycenter_img Architects: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959091/house-r-dietrich-untertrifaller-architekten Clipboard Projects House R / Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten 2020 Photographs ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeDietrich | Untertrifaller ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookAlbstadtGermanyPublished on March 25, 2021Cite: “House R / Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten” 25 Mar 2021.

The deal, CIRT 2019-3, covers $14.8 billion in unpaid principal balance (UPB) of 21-year to 30-year original term fixed-rate loans. According to Fannie Mae, this transaction is part of the GSE’s effort to reduce taxpayer risk by increasing the role of private capital in the mortgage market.“With twenty-one insurers and reinsurers providing coverage, demand for this transaction was among the strongest we’ve ever had,” said Rob Schaefer, VP for Credit Enhancement Strategy & Management, Fannie Mae. “With this deal, the CIRT program reached an important milestone, having committed approximately $10 billion of risk transfer since the program’s first transaction in 2014. The successful growth and evolution of CIRT is founded on a partnership between Fannie Mae and participating insurers and reinsurers, reinforced by the transparency of the CIRT program and our leadership in managing single-family residential credit risk.”With CIRT 2019-3, which became effective August 1, 2019, Fannie Mae will retain risk for the first 40 basis points of loss on a $14.8 billion pool of single-family loans with loan-to-value ratios greater than 60 percent and less than or equal to 80 percent. If the $59 million retention layer is exhausted, reinsurers will cover the next 325 basis points of loss on the pool, up to a maximum coverage of approximately $479 million.Coverage for these deals is provided based upon actual losses for a term of 12.5 years. Depending on the paydown of the insured pool and the principal amount of insured loans that become seriously delinquent, the aggregate coverage amount may be reduced at the one-year anniversary and each month thereafter. The coverage on each deal may be canceled by Fannie Mae at any time on or after the five-year anniversary of the effective date by paying a cancellation fee.

Texas cop never ID’d himself as police before fatally shooting Atatiana Jefferson in her own home: Official

first_imgiStock(FORT WORTH, Texas) — A white police officer responding to a call early Saturday for a welfare check at a home in Fort Worth, Texas, fired a shot into a bedroom window, striking and killing a 28-year-old black woman who a neighbor said was not a threat.Relatives of the woman who was fatally shot identified her as Atatiana Jefferson, and said she worked as a human resources officer for a Fort Worth company and that she lived in the home with an 8-year-old nephew, Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA reported.During a news conference on Sunday afternoon, Fort Worth Police Lt. Brandon O’Neil said the officer who opened fire on Jefferson never identified himself as a police officer.“What the officer observed and why he did not announce ‘police’ will be addressed as the investigation continues,” O’Neil said.The NAACP released a statement on Twitter calling the fatal shooting of Jefferson “UNACCEPTABLE!”“The acts of yet another ‘trained’ police officer have resulted in the death of #AtatianaJefferson Gun downed in her own home,” the NAACP wrote. “If we are not safe to call the police, if we are not safe in our homes, where can we find peace? We demand answers. We demand justice.”UNACCEPTABLE! The acts of yet another “trained” police officer have resulted in the death of #AtatianaJefferson. Gun downed in her own home. If we are not safe to call the police, if we are not safe in our homes, where can we find peace? We demand answers. We demand justice. pic.twitter.com/UZqHQzPyaW— NAACP (@NAACP) October 13, 2019James Smith, a neighbor, said the shooting unfolded after he called the non-emergency police number to report seeing the lights on and the front door open at Jefferson’s home. He said police arrived at the home around 2:30 a.m. without activating their lights and sirens.“I called my police department for a welfare check,” Smith told WFAA. “No domestic violence, no arguing, nothing that they should have been concerned about as far as them coming with guns drawn to my neighbor’s house.”Hearing the gunshot shocked him, he said.“I don’t know what went on in that house, but I know she wasn’t a threat,” Smith said. “I’m still kind of broken and shocked. They tell me I shouldn’t feel bad. But I feel bad cause had I not called the police department, she would probably still be alive today.”Civil rights attorney Lee Merritt said Jefferson’s “understandably heartbroken” relatives told him that Jefferson and her nephew were playing video games when they heard noises outside.“She went to investigate at the window. An officer was on the other side who shouted commands and before she had a moment to respond, he shot her to death,” said Merritt, who also represents the family of Botham Jean, a 26-year-old black man shot to death in September 2018 by white former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, who mistook Jean’s apartment for her own and wrongly suspected he was an intruder.The Fort Worth Police Department did not release the name of the officer.O’Neil said police received a call at 2:25 a.m. to respond to the home on East Allen Avenue. He said two officers arrived at the house at 2:29 am. and parked near Jefferson’s home, but not in front of the residence. He said the officers walked around the back of the house, and that one of the officers observed a person through the rear window of the home and opened fire.Body-camera footage released by the department shows the officer approaching a rear window of the home with his gun drawn. The officer sees the woman through the window, shouts, “Put your hands up, show me your hands,” and fires one shot.The video seems to confirm the officer never identified himself as police before he opened fire.The front door appears open in the body-camera footage, but a screen door looks to be closed in front of it. The officer doesn’t appear to knock.“Perceiving a threat, the officer drew his duty weapon and fired one shot striking the person inside the residence,” a statement from the police department reads.Responding officers entered the home, located the shooting victim and began providing emergency care.Jefferson died at the scene.“An 8-year-old male, Ms. Jefferson’s nephew, was inside the room during this time,” O’Neil said.O’Neil declined to answer questions from reporters, saying Police Chief Ed Kraus is scheduled to hold a news conference about the shooting on Monday.He said the officer who shot Jefferson is scheduled to be interviewed on Monday by the department’s Major Case Unit investigators.A firearm was recovered from the woman’s home, but police did not say where the gun was found in the house. The investigation is ongoing.The officer, who’s been with the department since April 2018, has been placed on administrative leave.Merritt set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Jefferson’s funeral. As of Sunday afternoon, more than $81,000 had been raised.Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price released a statement saying the Police Chief Ed Kraus and his command staff “are acting with immediacy and transparency to conduct a complete and thorough investigation.”She said the case will be turned over to the Tarrant County District Attorney Law Enforcement Incident Team to investigate the incident further.“Writing a statement like this is tragic and something that should never be necessary,” Price said in her statement. “A young woman has lost her life, leaving her family in unbelievable grief. All of Fort Worth must surround Atatiana Jefferson’s family with prayers, love and support.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Lettings proptech platform offers a ‘fourth way’ to landlords

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Lettings proptech platform offers a ‘fourth way’ to landlords previous nextAgencies & PeopleLettings proptech platform offers a ‘fourth way’ to landlordsNewly arrived head of B2B at lettings platform Home Made, Jo Green, says its hub approach is proven and will change the industry.Nigel Lewis13th January 202001,201 Views Lettings agents have faced competition from online and hybrid competitors for several years now and companies such as Howsy – which today bought the assets of Upad – but also Accommodation.co.uk, Purplebricks and MakeUrMove, all claim to offer a similar service to traditional agents for a fraction of the cost.The least-known is Home Made. It has been ticking over for two years developing its tech and testing out its service with several hundred landlords.It offers them a £948 tenant find service including accompanied viewings plus property management for 4%, way below the industry average of 10%-12%.But its service is about to step up a gear following the appointment of senior lettings figure Jo Green (pictured, above), as the company seeks to expand.“My role is going to head up both expansion in build-to-rent (BTR) but also its development within the professionally-managed private rental market portfolio and block sectors,” she says.“For me the biggest pull of Home Made was that it has proved that the concept will work in the market and has landlord case studies in the bag.”Home Made isn’t like other proptech platforms in the field, Green claims, because it offers a ‘fourth way’ that’s neither traditional, hybrid nor online.The tech-based business operates in the capital out of a hub with property management staff on the road conducting appraisals and managing properties, a model which is likely to be rolled out to other cities soon including Manchester.Early careerDuring her early career in general sales Green completed a law degree in her spare time and then joined a firm of solicitors in the property management sector.But the lure of sales proved too strong and she later joined PRSim, LSL’s build-to-rent business and was one of the small clutch of property professionals there for BTR’s birth alongside ‘PRS champion’ Andrew Stanford within the Ministry of Housing.“Build to rent was very much a moss-covered stone at the top of a very big hill,” she says. “It’s also very much the direction we need to be going in the country.”She then switched roles to head up sales at IdealFlatmate.com before joining Home Made to head up its business development.“LSL saw build-to-rent as an opportunity and although they were late to join the party, their position as one of the largest property managers in the private rental market gave them a strong position to start from,” she says.Industry divisionGreen claims the lettings industry divides into two on build to rent; agencies who think build-to-rent is just another arm of the existing industry, and those who’ve realised it’s a new sector slowly taking shape.“I think there were some naysayers out there who say that we’ve seen all this before and it’s not going to be that exciting, but I think it’s turned out to be the opposite,” she says.   Home Made Jo Green Andrew Stanford idealflatmate LSL PRSim January 13, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Russia: JSC Amur Shipyard to Shut Down Nuclear Submarine Building Activities

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Russia: JSC Amur Shipyard to Shut Down Nuclear Submarine Building Activities View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic JSC Amur Shipyard (Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Far East) will shut down nuclear submarine building activities after leasing out SSN Nerpa to Indian Navy, reported Interfax referring to Roman Trotsenko, president of JSC United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC).According to him, abandonment of submarine building at Amur Shipyard is related to shallow waters of Amur River which is used by submarines to reach the sea for trials. In prospect, the yard will mostly build civil ships and Project 20380/20385 corvettes for Russian Navy.Established in 1936, Amur Shipyard was primarily specialized in construction of submarines and civil vessels. According to the shipyard’s statistics, it has built 56 nuclear-powered submarines, 41 diesel submarines, and 137 civil ships of different classes and purposes. Through its history, the yard has built only 36 surface warships. Among submarines launched by Amur Shipyard were Project 877 Paltus diesel subs, Project 671RTM Schuka and Project 971 Schuka-B nuclear-powered submarines.The latest sub built by Amur Shipyard is K-152 Nerpa which will be leased to India early in 2012. The submarine was built under Project 971I Schuka-B. Presently, SSN Nerpa passes joint Russian-Indian trials. Nerpa is the third-generation submarine. Her underwater displacement is 12,800 tons. K-152 has max speed up to 30 knots and dives down to 600 meters. Nerpa is armed with four 533-mm and four 650-mm torpedo tubes.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, October 13, 2011; Image: shipdesign Russia: JSC Amur Shipyard to Shut Down Nuclear Submarine Building Activities Industry news View post tag: submarine View post tag: down View post tag: Amur View post tag: Russiacenter_img View post tag: shipyard View post tag: to View post tag: nuclear View post tag: JSC October 13, 2011 View post tag: building View post tag: shut View post tag: activities Share this articlelast_img read more

USS Carl Vinson departs Guam

first_img USS Carl Vinson departs Guam The U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) and its embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2 departed Guam after a scheduled four-day port visit, February 14.While in Guam, Carl Vinson sailors hosted distinguished visitors, toured local sites, and participated in community relations projects with various charitable organizations on the island.Commander, Carrier Strike Group 1, Rear Adm. James Kilby said the port visit was a welcome opportunity for sailors to recharge after weeks of constant training.“A few weeks before we came to Guam, we were able to conduct training as we pushed further west, which was very valuable for the entire strike group,” said Kilby. “After five weeks of work at sea, sailors were able to see Guam, experience the rich culture, and really get re-energized. Everyone here in Guam has been so inviting and gracious. We are fortunate to have come here.”While the visit was important to Carl Vinson sailors, the port call was also important to the people of Guam.Jeff Jones, chairman of the armed forces committee for the Guam Chamber of Commerce, said sailors provide an economic boost for the island.“It has been fantastic having the sailors here for many reasons,” said Jones. “From an economic standpoint, it is a great boost to our economy to have 5,000 sailors participating in water sports, dining at the restaurants, and staying in the hotels.”Jones said in addition to the economic impact, Carl Vinson’s visit is a way to strengthen the historic ties between Guam and the U.S. Navy.“Guam has a long history of supporting the military, especially the Navy,” said Jones. “I think it is great for the island to be able to see the carrier in the harbor and continue to build on the great relationship Guam has with the Navy.”Carl Vinson has deployed to the region several times, starting with a deployment to the western Pacific in 1983 one year after commissioning. Most recently in 2015, Carl Vinson conducted port visits and exercises with regional navies in the South China Sea.
