PrologueA young landowner, who has lived in an apartment for about 10 years, has been given a detached housing area within a housing site development district. This young couple with a 7-year-old child visited our office with an intention of having a single-family home where the child could enjoy more playful interaction with its surroundings. This 248 m2 land is a class II exclusive residential area with a 30% building coverage ratio and an 80% floor area ratio. It is a district unit planning area with slightly smaller building coverage ratio and floor area ratio than other class II exclusive residential areas. We started working on constructing two homes with 72 m2 of building area here.Save this picture!Site PlanRequirements from the owner1. House for two families: They wanted two homes for easier accommodation into a relatively new neighborhood since the house will be second of its kind in a new housing site development district with a few neighbors. Also taken into consideration was that this will be the first time for the families living in an independent house. 2. They hoped that potential leasing would cover the initial construction costs and would also generate rental income in the long run. 3. They wanted two separate main entrances for privacy. 4. They wanted living room and the kitchen separated so that the sights and sounds would not interfere with those from the living room.Save this picture!© Namsun LeeDesign principles1. ArrangementA. 1+1=1 (Two gardens like one yard) Yards were placed so that the front yard would be seen as wider and deeper with connection to the buffer lot adjacent to the field.Save this picture!© Namsun LeeB. Long house, Long wall We built a long house that conforms to the shape of the earth, so that the house itself can become a natural wall and border. The plan was arranged to ensure privacy. (We could not create a separate wall from the district unit plan; only a 80cm-high hedge was allowed.)Save this picture!© Namsun Lee2. Form/SpaceA. 1+1=1 (Two homes in one house) We set the mass by crossing the houses for two and to build a completed form in one house. The courtyard and the front yard, naturally defined as a result of crossing the mass, will each become the yard for the owner and the renter respectively.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionB. House featuring triangular gable roofThe owner’s house has two floors and the attic; the rental house has three floors. On the second floor, people would feel a sense of space offered by the attic, and even though the gable shape of the roof is in its natural, simple form, the interior would present various sense of space. From the third floor of the rental unit, we designed so that residents can feel the gable shape with secured high ceilings, which presents a sense of rich space despite the small size.Save this picture!© Namsun LeeC. Bordered/Borderless All doors to the rooms are planned as sliding doors, so that when the doors open and close, they also open and close the associated spaces, therefore recognized as one space.Save this picture!© Namsun LeeEpilogueThe biggest problem was the construction of two separate houses facing the ground on a small land. When the excavation was proceeded and foundations were laid, we were reminded of the worrying words of the owner. “Is it a one-room house?” We thought that it is not yet ready to understand the single house which has the same area but looks smaller than the apartment, to organize the way of life that has lived and to adapt to the new life environment. The insulation performance, heat recovery ventilation system, and triple glazing window system, which were standardized by the district unit plan, became the prestige of raising the building cost based on the passive house standard. We had to make the owner understand why the building cost was different from what they know from a lot of media and blogs were covering.Save this picture!© Namsun LeeThe house, which was built in August 2016, was completed in December 2016 and became a new home for the owner. I hope to give them a new life, and to be a ‘Jeongwang-dong Du Jib’ (Two Home in Jeongwang-dong) for them to gather together warm happiness.Project gallerySee allShow lessVilla Z / Mohamed Amine SianaSelected ProjectsVVIP Circuit House – I / Sunil Patil And AssociatesSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeMaasarchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSiheung-siSouth KoreaPublished on March 03, 2017Cite: “Two Homes in Jeongwang-dong / Maasarchitecture” 02 Mar 2017.

Mortgage rates on second homes rise as Fannie, Freddie pull back

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink fannie maefreddie macMortgagesResidential Real Estatesecond homes Tags New Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac restrictions mean higher mortgage rates for some. (Unsplash)Purchasing a second home during the pandemic may have seemed like a good idea with historically cheap mortgages available, but new changes are driving rates up for some buyers.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have capped how many second-home loans it purchases, depriving many lenders of the government backstop they had been relying on to offer interest rates in the 3 percent range, the Wall Street Journal reported.Now, no more than 7 percent of the property loans that lenders sell to either of the mortgage giants can be tied to second homes or investment properties, the publication reported. The cap is based on the overall dollar volume of loans they purchase.Loans that cannot be sold to Fannie and Freddie have higher rates to compensate for the risk of holding loans on which borrowers might default.ADVERTISEMENTDemand for second homes surged during the pandemic, thanks to the option to work from anywhere — be it a Hamptons cottage, Vermont farmhouse or Malibu beach home — and urban shutdowns. Mortgage applications for second homes were up 84 percent year-over-year in January, according to Redfin — more than double the increase for primary homes.Read moreTreasury quits bid to privatize Fannie Mae, Freddie MacSpencer Rascoff wants to democratize second homesSpencer Rascoff’s Pacaso is worth $1B Email Address* Message* Second homes and investment properties don’t align with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s missions to make home ownership affordable, officials at the Federal Housing Financing Agency told the publication.

After Japan, US Navy attack submarine visits South Korea

first_img June 6, 2017 Almost exactly a month after visiting Japan, U.S. Navy’s Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Cheyenne (SSN 773) arrived in Busan, Republic of Korea (ROK) for a port visit on June 6.Both port calls are part of the submarine’s regularly scheduled deployment to the Western Pacific but come at a time of heightened tensions in the region, caused by North Korea’s repeated missile tests.Prior to USS Cheyenne, Busan also welcomed the Ohio-class guided-missile submarine USS Michigan (SSGN 727) for a port visit in April this year.In addition to several submarines operating in the region, the U.S. Navy currently has two aircraft carrier groups operating near the Korean Peninsula. Recent reports further suggested that USS Nimitz could join USS Ronald Reagan and USS Carl Vinson as the third aircraft carrier in the region.While U.S. Navy officials said this was unlikely to occur, they noted that the U.S. Navy is flexible enough to have three carriers in the Korean Peninsula should the need arise.“We are honored to host the crew of USS Cheyenne for a much deserved port visit,” said Rear Adm. Brad Cooper, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Korea. “We [U.S. and ROK navies] routinely work shoulder to shoulder with one another and this port visit is an opportunity for Cheyenne Sailors to enjoy Busan and explore the Korean culture.”Homeported in Pearl Harbor, USS Cheyenne is named after the city of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and was the last of the 62 Los Angeles-class submarines to enter service in the U.S. Navy. Commissioned Sept. 13, 1996. Cheyenne measures more than 360-feet long and weighs more than 6,000 tons when submerged.

Fire Fears Again

first_imgOnly a week after faulty electrics at Mansfield College caused a fire that left undergraduates without access to their computer room, the fire brigade were called out again, this time in response to a false alarm. The smell of smoke caused the main building to be evacuated, leaving students without facilities for several hours. Opinion amongst the students appeared to be angry as many finalists were hurried outside. A third year PPEist, Jonathan Lindley told Cherwell “This is a farce. We have enough on our plate without sirens going off.” The college is to look into its fire and safety provision before the beginning of next term.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003last_img

Friends mourn ‘exceptional leader’

first_imgFriends of Benazir Bhutto, the opposition leader and former Prime Minister of Pakistan who was assassinated during the vacation, have remembered fondly her time at Oxford.Bhutto read PPE at Lady Margaret Hall between 1973-1977, and in 1977 she became the first Asian woman to be elected President of the Union.The election that she won was filled with controversy, and had to be rerun after Bhutto accused her rival of illegal canvassing. There were also allegations against Bhutto’s supporters and calls for an election tribunal to be held. However, it seems that no action was taken against Bhutto or her opponents.Cherwell reported in 1976 after winning the Presidency her rival candidate attacked her staircase, setting on fire a bin at the bottom of her staircase, and launching fireworks at her door.Buckets of sand were emptied out and light bulbs were smashed on her staircase.Her term as President was not without amusement. In an debate in 1977 Peter Oppenheimer, now a Fellow of Economics at Christ Church, said in a debate that Bhutto was “was the next best thing to [American actress and sex symbol] Raquel Welch in the chair.”Alan Duncan, who was Bhutto’s campaign manager in the Union elections and is now a Shadow Secretary of State, has described her as “fiery and fun.” In a comment piece for this week’s Cherwell he recalls, “For some absurd reason she decided to repaint the President’s office powder blue and some of us willingly helped her; only I don’t think we ever removed the books first. I took a call on the President’s red telephone while Benazir was up a ladder with a paintbrush, only to find myself speaking to her father. He was the first Prime Minister I’d ever spoken to. A few weeks later he was deposed by Zia ul Haq and, in an act of unspeakable act of viciousness, hanged a year later.”Michael Crick, another contemporary and Political Editor of Newsnight, told the national press that she had shown determination in her electoral bid to become Union President, and said that she had actually failed to win the election three times.He said, “She put all this effort into becoming president of the union, which was a bit pointless given she intended to scale much higher peaks.” Crick said that though Bhutto had bipartisan appeal, with friends in both Labour and Conservative camps in Oxford, she was not entirely popular. “Some people thought she was using her name and money to buy the presidency,” he said.Crick recalls that one particular speaker at the Union “brought the house down” by referring to Bhutto with the words, “Your father is, I believe, a butcher”. At this time, her father was facing accusation of murdering family members of a rival leader in Pakistan.Another long-time friend who she met at Oxford, the author Victoria Schofield, said, “She was very charismatic. […] We were a drab lot of 1970s students, messy and not very well-off… and there was this exotic woman who drove a sports car, when we mostly rode bicycles, and had lots of friends.“She enjoyed the Union but she liked socialising as well, she liked parties and wearing nice dresses.”by Mohsin Khanlast_img read more


first_imgWeehawken High School is ranked 50th Best in New JerseyWeehawken High School was recently rated the 50th best high school in New Jersey by U.S. News and World Report. The school was also ranked the 1,686 best school in the United States out of 20,500 schools. This is the highest ranking for the Hudson County school. There were 511 high schools in New Jersey in the 2016-17 academic year, according the New Jersey Department of Education.Among other indicators, U.S. News and World Report calculates college readiness and test scores based on student performance on state exit exams, as well as on exams on college-level course work, or Advanced Placement (AP) exams. The AP participation rate at Weehawken High School is unusually high. In a Feb. 21 press release, the Department of Education highlighted that “Seventy-one percent of Weehawken High School’s 11th- and 12th-graders had taken one or more AP exams – more than double the state average, and a 389 percent increase in participation since 2012-13.”Moreover, students who take at least four required courses as Advanced Placement courses can graduate with the prestigious Weehawken High School AP Capstone Diploma. This year will see the first graduating class of the AP Capstone program.“We are especially proud of the fact that we have opened access to the most rigorous curriculum to not just some, but all of our students,” Superintendent Dr. Robert R. Zywicki said.The new ranking is not the result of just a focus on college level classes. In 2016, Zywicki established a comprehensive Response to Intervention Program that provides support to struggling and at-risk students. Subsequently, the graduation rate increased to 98 percent in 2017.“We are thrilled that Weehawken High School has distinguished itself yet again,” Anthony Colasurdo, principal of Weehawken High School said. “This year, Weehawken High School was rated one of ‘America’s most challenging high schools’ by The Washington Post, and now we’re rated one of the top high schools in New Jersey.” High Tech students awarded Community Service Merit ScholarshipsHigh Tech High School students Muhammad Umar and Jeel Shah were each awarded $2,000 Community Service Merit Scholarships from Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center.The students earned the scholarships as part of the hospital’s Community Service Merit Scholarship Program that recognizes and rewards high school seniors from eight local high schools who have demonstrated significant accomplishments in community service while maintaining academic success. The online application process was conducted in February and March. Recommendations were made by high school guidance counselors and scholarship applications were reviewed by a committee of community volunteers.

The risk of cardiovascular disease is four times greater in the South Asian population when compared with the general population. An offshoot of the hospital’s 2017 Red Sari campaign, the program’s goal is to help educate and reduce heart disease among South Asian families by stressing the importance of reducing sodium intake and getting your heart checked.Sharon Ambis, the Medical Center’s Senior Director of Marketing and Communications, who has traveled to India frequently, outlined the initiative, “Your heart doesn’t beat just for you. Get it checked,” at a lunch forum hosted by New Jersey City University (NJCU) in honor of the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce 2018 Delegation.She noted, “Jersey City’s South Asian population appreciates our community outreach and educational programming to improve heart, health and well-being,” as part of her welcome remarks to the delegation.New Jersey’s Southeast Asian population has grown significantly over the past 10 years. The state now boosts more than 800,000 residents clustered in Hudson County, Middlesex County, Bergen County and Somerset County. With the highest educational achievements of any population sector and the highest median income of the state’s ethnic populations, the group contributes significantly to the stability of New Jersey.For information regarding any of the community outreach programming, contact Sharon Ambis, Senior Director of Marketing and Communications at Jersey City Medical Center at [email protected]last_img read more
