Villa π is situated on a plot of approx. 4 ha, located on the southern edge of the village Čepin near Osijek. Within the plot, it is positioned at the turn of the natural woods and the new landscape design. On the south side of the villa is a newly formed lake whose water quality is maintained by biological purifiers. There are two gates at the parcel, one for the owner, close daily visitors, delivery and service staff and the other one for external users of the pool and other multi-day guests.Save this picture!© Marin TopićThe villa has been concieved according to the wishes and needs of the owner. His lifestyle is one of socializing and entertaining the numerous members of the immediate and extended family, business partners, associates and friends on a daily basis. For this reason, the villa has got three entrances and three levels of accessibility. The third level comprises of the southern entrance to the pool area and the guest’s wing on the first floor, which are accessible to the widest circle of the owner’s friends, business partners, associates and guests. The second level, with the western entrance, includes, beside the above mentioned, recreational and service areas. The first level of accessibility adds garage and, through northern entrance, exclusively private premises of the owner and his immediate family, consisting of wife and three children.Save this picture!© Marin TopićOn the ground floor, the villa is “L” shaped, with two wings. There are three separate storey volumes on top of main ground volume, two of which are perpendicular to it, and the third is situated at the intersection of wings (with a bit of translation). Storey volumes emphasize and cover entrances and, functionally, gather similar content. Basement, which extends under the fragment of the ground floor, contains the engine room and technology of the pool. The southwestern wing of the ground floor contains service facilities, pool area, locker rooms and entrance for guests and external visitors. The southeastern wing contains the owners’ living quarters that may be, optionally, separated or integrated through large sliding doors. The southern storey volume is a guest unit with two bedrooms and a suite. The northern storey volume is recreational, with fitness, sauna and relaxation area and the eastern storey volume is the family’s sleeping tract.Save this picture!© Marin TopićSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe villa is integrated with a park landscape through large glass curtains that allow spatial orientation and transparency, inviting the users to constant interaction with the nature. The landscape design provides a constant variety of visual attractiveness and sensational volatility through the seasons. Materials used in the external and interior design are traditional, natural, of predominantly warm brown tones, with minimal final treatment, ensuring a feeling of warmth and connection with the nature for the owner and all other users.Save this picture!© Marin TopićSave this picture!SectionIn contrast to that, a “smart home” system represents highly sophisticated technology, providing maximum comfort with minimum energy consumption.  Geothermal energy from twelve wells is used for heating and cooling, including the heating of the pool water and sanitary water. All premises are being heated and cooled through the concrete structures of the ceilings and the floors, that radiate through it’s entire surface. The “Smart home” infrastructure takes care about security, maintenance, user comfort, consumption, keeping record and sustainability of the entire system, the interior space and the environment itself.Save this picture!© Marin TopićProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Residence: Xavier CorberoVideosJabuticaba House / Raffo ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/591497/villa-p-oliver-grigic Clipboard Architects: Oliver Grigić Area Area of this architecture project Croatia Villa Π / Oliver Grigić “COPY” Save this picture!© Marin Topić+ 38 Share Area:  1393 m² Area:  1393 m² Photographs Housescenter_img “COPY” CopyHouses•Čepin, Croatia Projects ArchDaily Villa Π / Oliver GrigićSave this projectSaveVilla Π / Oliver Grigić ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/591497/villa-p-oliver-grigic read more

Tomi House is located in Niigata Prefecture’s Yuzawa, a town notable for its particularly heavy snowfall. Our first introduction to the site was in January of 2015. By the side of a neatly cleared road rose a mountain of snow four meters or so high. “This is it” we were told.Our brief was to build an open and spacious house from which this family of four, inundated by snow for half the year, could comfortably enjoy the surrounding greenery and starry skies.Save this picture!© Koichi SatakeSave this picture!© Koichi SatakeThrough necessity, dwellings in the area are typically built on raised concrete foundations, elevating the living space high above ground level. After considering the clients’ everyday needs and ways to incorporate outdoor space into the building, as well as discussing the new living environment they hoped to create, we settled on a three floor design.  The third floor houses the entrance and a shared living space. The second floor is divided into modestly-sized 5sqm private rooms.Save this picture!Section A-A’The ground floor comprises the raised concrete foundations. This space would normally serve as a garage, enveloped completely in concrete and blocked off from light and fresh air. We opted to open the space up wide, creating an airy and bright expanse to act as a pleasant gathering place for the family, if not the entire neighborhood. Taking full advantage of the parameters outlined in the local building convention, known as the “Code Exception for Raised-floor Housing in Areas of Heavy Snowfall”, we set about pouring the wall-height reinforced concrete foundations. Atop the foundations, rather than pouring a reinforced concrete slab as is typical, we laid a light wood frame, on top of which sits the two-storey house.Save this picture!© Koichi SatakeThe wood frame makes use of a reciprocal structure, keeping structural materials to a minimum while making the 5.4m-wide opening and dynamic 1.5m overhang possible.  The resulting underfloor area, below this light wooden frame reminiscent of a gazebo ceiling, suggests a critical approach to this type of building and its unique challenges, while strictly adhering to local regulations and local vernacular and with the highest safety standards in mind.Save this picture!1st and 2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Koichi SatakeInhabitants of the local area must contend not only with winter’s harsh northwest winds and unforgiving snowstorms, but also the summer sun’s unrelenting heat. In order to create a stable and comfortable environment within the house all year round, we wrapped the building in a long stair extending up to the third-floor entrance, as well as multiple terraces, creating a buffer zone which can be used as both windbreak and sunroom. This blurred line between interior and exterior allows the house to adapt to suit the climate, and needs, of the moment, allowing flexibility of lifestyle and a greater perception of spaciousness.Save this picture!© Koichi SatakeHeating and cooling is provided by way of a single reverse cycle air conditioner unit situated in the ceiling cavity.  An inline duct fan forces conditioned air within the walls of each floor, resulting in a radiant heating and cooling effect. Thus, rather than maintaining a comfortable room temperature by excessively heating or cooling the air, heating and cooling is delivered directly to the people within via the walls of the building itself.  The building draws deeply from the long established local vocabulary of raised floors, windbreaks and sunrooms, while finding nuance in and reinterpreting these staid conventions. By simultaneously conforming to and breaking the mold, we have striven to realize an architecture that will shape both the local landscape read more

5 Cities with Great Rental Investment Opportunities

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / 5 Cities with Great Rental Investment Opportunities Share Save in Daily Dose, Events, Featured It seems with all the talk about how millennials are shaping the housing market, there is little talk about how millennials are shaping the market for rental investment properties. And with a national average of two years to break even on your first home purchase as opposed to renting, coupled with low inventory across the country and rising home prices throughout, many millennials are renting for longer. These five cities have the longest break even horizon in the country, according to Zillow. California secured the top 3 spots. Number one: San Jose, California. Located in the center of Silicon Valley in a metro with the highest Home Price Index in the country, you’d have to live in your new home 5.1 years to break even on your investment. Median rent is about $3,460 per month and the median home price tops $997,000. San Fransisco came in at a close second with a break even horizon of 4.9 years and a median rent of $3,354 per month, and the median home price is $848,400. Given the standard 20 percent downpayment, each of these metros can easily cost homeowners upwards of $150,000Los Angeles was trailed the other two California metros with a break even horizon of 4.7 years. San Diego tied with Washington D.C. at 4.5 years for the number four spot. As a point of reference, other major metros break even horizons are as follows: New York City, 2.5 years; Seattle, 2.3 years; Houston, 2.4 years; Chicago, 2.2 years; and Dallas-Fort Worth, 1.6 years. Most cities in the midwest had an average break even horizon falling between 1-2 years, and in the Pacific Northwest, most cities fell in the 2-3 year window. The state of Florida averaged 1-2 years, with the exception of Miami, that averaged nearly 3 years.

This was done to send a message to students to not to embarrass the govt by marching to the Parliament”, he submitted.”Protest was a political embarrassment for the government. That’s why they didn’t want the students to march towards the Parliament. That’s why the police had beaten up the students mercilessly”, he submitted. Key submissions of GonsalvesHe submitted that the police had entered the campus, without taking requisite permission from the authorities. There was firing inside the University halls, and many students got attacked with rubber bullets. Police entered the library, hostels and even the mosque; male police officers also entered the women’s hostel.Several students received brutal injuries. One student became blind after suffering lathi blows in the face. There are students with broken legs, broken hands, severe head injuries.”‘This is literally like a war against students”, he said.Gonsalves informs the court that one of the LLM students, who was studying in library, has now turned blind due to the lathi blow given by the [email protected] #JamiaViolence #AntiCAA— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 4, 2020He said that announcements were made from the mosque inside the campus urging the police to stop the attack, which was not heeded to. Communal slurs were used against students. They were called “anti-nationals” and were asked to go to Pakistan for “azadi”.Before they started beating up the students, the police broke the CCTV cameras inside the central library.Gonsalves then read out from the testimonials of students recorded by several activists, which contained allegations of police brutalities. He informed that these testimonials were submitted before the National Human Rights Commission.Gonsalves read out one of the testimonies which said that police even denied taking one of the severely injured students to the hospital ‘Ye mar jayega toh koi farak nahi padega’, police said as per the testimony.”This police brutality has communal overtones. They’ve attacked a minority institution which was protesting against the CAA. It is not a riot, but police brutality”, he submitted.He further said that the police attacked even the Imam of the mosque.”Police dragged me by the neck, attacked me on my back with lathis”, he read out from the Imam’s testimony.Police destroyed public propertyGonsalves further alleged that the police indulged in the destruction of public property to give out an impression that the students’ protests were violent.”There’s evidence to suggest that police had also put a bus on fire. This is a theory which needs to be investigated. This goes against their theory which said that students were so violent that they had put a bus on fire”, he said, playing a video.As per the video, the police was seen going near the bus with some liquid, he said.”Police itself put the bus on fire to support a false narrative that the students had indulged in arson”, he submitted.He also played a video containing visuals of police barging into the library and beating up students.No fair inquiryGonsalves further argued that the investigation was read more
