The Otake house is located in the West of Hiroshima prefecture, on a high plateau that neighbors the Kamei Park of the Kamei Castle Ruins. To the South is an industrial region and a beautiful mountain range, and to the North a remarkable view of the Seto Inland Sea and Miyajima. We created a design fitting to these two contrasting and beautiful scenes.We thought of the North side as the type of scenery you take in and savor, and the South side as the type that you place yourself in. Structurally we divided the area between load bearing zones and free zones to make a place that could have two personalities at once. The North side is open even while closed, with the bedrooms, kitchen, dining area, and wide apertures to view the distant scenery, which at the same time are functional as load bearing parts of the structure.

Save this picture!By covering the entire building with water proof material used in ship construction we made a unique and detailed building that doesn’t require sealants or tiling. Furthermore, because the glossy, water proof material wraps around the building inside and out uninterrupted, a nature-like space is created where you can take in the outside scenery and the building and surroundings seem to blend together. By considering views about execution from the planning stage on, we discovered water proof materials previously unknown to us. In much the same way that an object will look different when seen from different angles, by looking at one project from the different view points of planning, structure, and execution we think we were able to move in a better direction. Save this picture!By rethinking standard practices and personal opinions about structure,utility,form,materials, interiors,and exteriors, we think we can find new possibilities for materials,the relationship of form and space,and the building and its surroundings, in a planning environment that opens up new wonders not found in traditional buildings. By combining traditional values and new, and breaking down not just the border between inside and out but between the values themselves, we hope to create the buildings of the future.Project gallerySee allShow less2009 BIMFusion.com International BIM Awards CompetitionArticlesSpeed Limits, an exhibitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/34089/house-in-otake-suppose-design-office Clipboard House in Otake / Suppose Design Office CopyAbout this officeSuppose Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesOtake3D ModelingJapanPublished on September 07, 2009Cite: “House in Otake / Suppose Design Office” 07 Sep 2009.

Ginnie Mae Outstanding MBS Steady at $2T Threshold

first_img February 13, 2019 1,274 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Tagged with: Ginnie Mae Ginnie Mae I MBS Ginnie Mae II MBS MBS The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Ginnie Mae Outstanding MBS Steady at $2T Threshold Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Subscribe Ginnie Mae Outstanding MBS Steady at $2T Threshold Ginnie Mae on Wednesday announced that issuance of its mortgage-backed securities (MBS) totaled $29.930 billion in January. A breakdown of its January issuance includes $28.661 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $1.269 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, which includes $1.066 billion of loans for multifamily housing. A total outstanding principal balance of $2.053 trillion is an increase from $1.924 trillion in January 2018. In its previous report, Ginnie Mae MBS totaled $30.291 billion in December 2018 with the breakdown comprising 28.166 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $2.125 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, which includes $1.977 billion of loans for multifamily housing. The past total outstanding principal balance of $2.042 trillion reflected an increase from $1.913 trillion in December 2017. As reported in an article by The Wall Street Journal in January 2019, Ginnie Mae had expressed concerned about risks from nonbank lenders, whose share of home loans has ballooned since the financial crisis. The agency, for the first time in years, demanded that lenders improve their financial metrics before receiving full approval to continue issuing mortgage bonds backed by them. According to the publication, the agency also conducted stress tests of business partners, to check on their monthly cash-flow obligations under reduced loan production and increased delinquencies.The article pointed out that thirty-four percent of securities issued by Ginnie Mae were serviced by nonbank lenders in 2014—the share of which has now increased to 61 percent. Two main reasons—a cooling housing market and mortgage refinancing falling to its lowest level in 18 years—have raised concerns about nonbank lenders’ ability to meet their financial obligations. It also noted that a failure on the part of these servicers, and losses thereafter could end up becoming a burden on the taxpayer.Ginnie Mae I MBS are modified pass-through mortgage-backed securities on which registered holders receive separate principal and interest payments on each of their certificates. These include single-family, multifamily, manufactured home and project construction loans. Ginnie Mae II MBS are modified pass-through mortgage-backed securities for which registered holders receive an aggregate principal and interest payment from a central paying agent.

Work-ready New Dealers plea

first_imgWork-ready New Dealers pleaOn 27 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Granada’s group personnel director warned MPs last week that work-ready trainees are vital to the success of the New Deal.Stephanie Monk told the House of Commons education and employment committee that training organisations need to tackle the gap between trainees’ readiness for work and employers’ expectations.But she said too few of these intermediary organisations exist and called for funding to be targeted. “Funding which is earmarked would make an enormous difference. They [intermediaries] don’t exist in sufficient scale right now.”She added, “Without intermediaries we will be left with a significant pool of people who will really be quite hard to help, with too big a gap between their needs and employers’ needs. Earlier this year, employment minister Tessa Jowell responded to criticism that trainees were not job-ready by pledging to ensure no one would leave the New Deal gateway scheme lacking literacy and numeracy skills. (Personnel Today, 1 February)Monk told MPs, “I don’t think some employers have the understanding of problems such as drug abuse and homelessness that they would need to tackle [them] in a credible way.” She thought it was optimistic of MPs to expect employers to cope with those problems.Speaking after giving evidence to the committee of MPs, Monk said Granada remained committed to New Deal.She said, “The main point I wanted to make was the need to create people who have a genuine chance of becoming sufficiently confident that they can migrate around the workforce, and the importance of getting them launched onto a normal employment path.“If that help is available and of sufficient quality, then they should quickly become a regular member of the workforce. And they will have a future that is indistinguishable from other employees and an ability to progress and increase their salary.”www.parliament.uk/commons/selcom/edemhome.htm Comments are closed.

Adam Day leaves EasyProperty to join newly-enlarged EmoovHatched founder says he was drawn to Emoov’s new No.2 position within the online agency market, after less than 12 months at EasyProperty.Nigel Lewis6th June 201803,646 Views The newly enlarged Emoov has recruited digital big hitter Adam Day to run its estate agency operation.Adam, who founded Hatched.co.uk, one of the first online-only agencies to launch in the UK in 2006 before the it was sold to Connells in November 2015, had until now been working at EasyProperty.co.uk.After initially working with Connells to help double the size of Hatched, in July 2017 he jumped ship to EasyProperty where until recently he headed up its operations.During his time there he was tasked with reorganising the company’s tech from a consumer-facing brand into a B2B operation following its acquisition by The Guild’s parent company GPEA.That task would appear to be completed now, and the newly-enlarged Emoov, which bought Tepilo and Urban last week, is clearly a bigger fish for Adam.“This is a real step up given the Emoov and Tepilo positioning as the number two online/hybrid player in the space,” he says.“With circa 12,000 listings per annum to oversee – and growing – it will be an exciting new challenge for me.“Russell and I have known each other for many years and respect each other enormously, so I’m glad to be part of the new, winning team at Emoov and Tepilo alongside the existing senior management.”Adam’s recruitment is part of an aggressive team building exercise by Emoov’s CEO Russell Quirk in recent months which has included Urban’s founder Adam Male as well as two JustEat former executives in July 2017.Proven experience“I’ve been keen for some time to further strengthen the senior team at Emoov with great, proven estate agency experience,” says Russell.“Adam’s blend of online and high street provenance makes him the ideal person to oversee estate agency performance at both Emoov and Tepilo from here on. He’s a key-hire and one that I am delighted to have spent some time persuading to join us.”Before establishing Hatched, Adam Day worked as a Sales Manager for Country Properties in Hitchin for nearly nine years.  Hatched hatched.co.uk adam day russell quirk emoov easyProperty Emoov June 6, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
