Billdal, 20 km south of Gothenburg, is a community with a large amount of detached housing, situated within commuter distance to central Gothenburg. The area’s main attraction is truly the sea. Here, the horizon is visible from shore, while further north the vastness of the Northern Sea is obstructed by islands in the southern archipelago. Just next to the shoreline, but tucked away behind a hill that partly eliminates sea view, is the property of this object. The site was not without challenges with its difficult ground conditions, and surrounding large neighboring villas. To offer impeccable living conditions on the site, the house had to adapt to the prevailing conditions.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramWithin the Japanese art of gardening, there is an expression, “shakkei”, which roughly translates into borrowing a view. It is used to describe the process of capturing different views; mountains in the distance, the nature up close, the sky above, and the earth and water beneath. It is a method used to make small and narrow gardens appear larger and richer in crowded parts of Japan. In essence: capture the nature alive! The situation in Billdal reminded of Japanese monastery gardens – crowded spaces with only shattered views reaching through the surrounding buildings. By a conscious placement of walls and windows these slots of the most attractive views has been borrowed and made the most out of. By necessity, this has been the established principle in this project and enables the occupants to feel like living in the middle of nature, even in site surrounded by neighbouring houses.Save this picture!© elStudioApproaching the lot, one drives along a 15 meter long road in between two neighbouring villas before reaching the house. When parking the car, a narrow gap captures the view of a large tree. The entrance of the house is accentuated by a 5 cm raised concrete slab leading up to the main door by a small incline. When walking up the ramp one perceives a notion of the much brighter central courtyard situated on the left as light is filtered through a wall of fir boards. This is another central part of the drama embedded in the art of Japanese gardening. First sense, then hold and finally experience. Reaching the entry door, the inner courtyard unfolds to the left.Save this picture!© elStudioThe building is in three stories, where as the top floor is rotated by 90 degrees around the areas with the connecting shafts. In doing so, the house turns its back towards the neighbours. This is amplified with great heights and sparse amounts of windows. Towards the courtyard, a more intimate scale is applied and the facades are fully glazed. Because of the complicated geometries, the detailing is kept simple with a façade in ferric sulphate processed whitewood and mounts and fenestrations are in anodised aluminium.Save this picture!© elStudioThe upper level holds three bedrooms and a bathroom. All semi-public spaces are located at the entry level. These spaces flow out to the courtyard through large sliding doors. The basement may be furnished into a separate unit or function as a recreation room.Save this picture!© elStudioThe interior concrete slabs are precisely polished in order to achieve a shiny surface that does not demand any further cover.Save this picture!© elStudioApart from the floor, white painted plaster dominates all surfaces. The natural center point of the house is the staircase that the whole building revolves around. At the top of the staircase there are large windows facing west, making the entire stair appear like a solar periscope that brings down the light.Save this picture!SectionRegarding the isolated building volumes, the façade material consists of 22 mm fur panel on top of 22 mm lath. The panelling is treated with ferric sulphate.Project gallerySee allShow lessFAR ROC [For a Resilient Rockaway] CompetitionEventNovo Mesto Central Market Competition Entry / EnotaUnbuilt Project Share CopyAbout this officeUnit Arkitektur ABOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGothenburgHousesSwedenPublished on April 26, 2013Cite: “Wood House / UNIT Arkitektur AB” 26 Apr 2013.

The newspaper believes that the successors to the original four classifications are “are vague, subjective-sounding classifications (which communities? whose rights?).” Only lawyers will benefit, it believes: “where red tape is supposedly diminished, it will be replaced by pink ribbon.”Read “Charitable act” at The Times.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe The rise of mortgage rates over the past few months has triggered a significant slowdown in refinance loans. According to an analysis by CoreLogic, the needs of homeowners who refinance in a rising rate environment is different from the rate-and-term borrowers that dominated the market during the refinance boom.In this video, Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, explains how borrowers opt for refinance loans. “Homeowners that obtain a cash-out refinance when rates are at or above the rate on their prior loan may choose a term of up to 30 years on their new loan to keep the change in their monthly mortgage payment as small as possible,” Nothaft said.The analysis found that the share of refinance loans that cash out some home equity is generally very small during a refinance boom. “During 2012, when 30-year fixed-rates fell to an all-time low, the cash-out share of refinancing fell to 10 percent, the lowest recorded in CoreLogic’s public records data during the last two decades,” Nothaft noted.

In fact, it is at an eight-year low, according to a report by Redfin, which indicated that 32 percent of offers written by their agents on behalf of homebuyers faced one or more competing bid.Last year, in November, this figure stood at 45 percent. Despite this cooling down of competition, certain ZIP codes in California, Boston, and Washington D.C., continue to have a competitive market making them the centers of bidding wars. Topping the list is 96402 in Oakland, California, where 90 percent of offers faced competition in the September to November period.ZIP Code 20009 in Washington, D.C., was the next hotbed for warring homebuyers where 85 percent of offers faced competition from September to November 2018. This was an increase from the 67 percent competition seen in this area last year. 92870 in Orange County, California tied with 20009 for the second spot for the five most competitive markets in the country.Three ZIP codes, one each in San Francisco(94110); Washington, D.C. (20904); and Boston (01890) tied for the third spot with competition on offers rising to 80 percent from not having a large enough volume of offers last year. However, competition in the Washington, D.C. ZIP code of 20904 actually fell from 83 percent in the September to November period in 2017.Two Boston ZIP codes, 02148 and 02476 took the fourth spot with 79 percent offers facing bidding wars in both these areas. However, ZIP code 02148 saw a sizeable dip when compared to last year when all the offers that came on the market facing bidding wars among buyers.95630 in Sacramento and 95035 in San Jose rounded off the top five with 73 percent of the offers facing competition.A notable market that was absent from the list was Seattle, the report indicated, adding that during the spring selling season three out of four offers in Seattle had faced competition. “As of November, only about one of every five offers in the Seattle area faced competition, the lowest rate of Redfin’s largest market,” the report revealed.

Thecentral principle of leadership is that a leader has to be certain of his orher beliefs, and stick to them no matter what, according to former New YorkCity mayor Rudy Giuliani.Speakingat the Power of Executing Greatness conference organised by the UK’s Intituteof Leadership and Management, Giuliani laid out the principles he believed werefundamental to leadership. He said if ideas and beliefs dominated what peoplethought then others would follow them.Theformer mayor said that leaders had to be optimists, as nobody followed apessimist, and that leaders had to have courage to succeed.”Ifyou are afraid of something it is probably because there is an opportunity infront of you,” he said. “Feel the fear – it will help you succeed,just don’t let it immobilise you.”Hesaid relentless preparation and teamwork would mean that when somethingunanticipated happened, other plans could be tailored to solve the problem.Finally,he told delegates that communication was the key and the phrase that typified afailing organisation was ‘We don’t know what’s expected of us’.Formore on this story go to www.personneltoday.com/features Comments are closed.
