This house corresponds to the ambitions and life project of a young heir and collector. The site, exhaustively searched, is located beside Graciosa Country Club, the most exclusive club with the golf course most centrally located in the city. Its particularities: dimensions, format, legislation and neighborhood shaped and conditioned several design decisions. Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe idea of a house for large parties and receptions would also be central in the development of the project.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe house entirely built with reinforced concrete was a proposal of this office, which saw in this project an alternative to a powerful architecture for its volume and without the conventional stylistic concessions.Save this picture!PlanThe site of 1200m2 was relatively small for the large program to be installed, and the triangular shape with one side in an arch did not facilitate the design of the building. A narrow strip of maintenance sheds of the golf course along a high wall would only allow the desired views from the second floor of the house. The vertical guideline of the project came from the relationship between the difficulties presented by the lot, together with the most important requirement of the client: to make the most out of the views of the golf course.This way, the main uses only happen from the second floor of the building. Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe house consists of five floors – the groundfloor and four more. The ground and the first floors were intended to: accesses, patio and car shelter, services, staff apartments and facilities, and with an independent entrance from the same square that accesses the house, the gallery for the private collection.Save this picture!SectionThe gallery space was not included in the inicial scope of the project. The main idea was to install the artworks among the different spaces of the residence. However, due to the surplus of areas in the first floors and the inclusion of large scale art pieces to the collection, we thought it would be good to suggest the creation of a gallery, idea that was rapidly absorbed by the client. Thus, the exhibition space was intalled in a “T” shape plan with double-height ceiling, with one leg of the “T” reserved for a garden between walls, planned for sculpture exhibitions, water mirror and water garden. The coverage of this gallery, a roof garden, recreates the site two floors above the ground , providing a grassy area accessible from the floor of the rooms and from the main hall installed in a glass box.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe contemporary art collection began to be formed twenty years ago, when the owner assigned us to design his first apartment. We started with a series of local artists from the 80s generation. In the next years the collection has housed a series of artists with national and international scope, and has became a reference to local museums and important Brazilian artists and marchands.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe house, of approximately 1750m2, was designed for a couple and two girls.On the groundfloor, apart of the vehicle access, a large square partially covered by the glass box with no walls and monumental proportions is the access to the main lobby, (also accessible for those who come by car from the back of the house), and to the private art gallery. The four upper floors can be accessed in three different ways: by lift or ramps to the main areas, and by stairs to the service areas.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubFrom the main lobby on the groundfloor, we go up two floors to access the level with the rooms separated by the magenta woodwork, ripped by a ribbon window of 26 meters long with the first views of the golf course and access to the secret garden. This one contains 3 species of Pau-Ferro (Caesalpinia Ferrea), a native tree from the Brazailian Atlantic Forrest. This floor is dedicated to the daughters rooms, the guest room, and the rooms that accomodate daily uses such as the main kitchen of the house, which connects itself with the other two kitchens by a freight elevator . There is still a fourth kitchen for staff use.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe third floor contains the larger spaces and it is the floor dedicated to the bigger family interactions and large receptions. It is the floor with the double-height glass box, which runs transversally through the large concrete block, poring over the golf course in one end and facing the city skyline at the other end. This floor also houses the master suite of the house, with access to the secret garden containing the external staircase to the rooftop swimming pool, and access to the side terrace with views of the golf course.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe fourth floor accomodates the social and family activities for daytime use, such as deck and swimming pool, lounge and bar, all of them with broad prospects of the golf course, plus sauna and kitchen with barbecue grill for lunch. The pool is covered in glass mosaic from an original drawing by the artist Paolo Ridolfi. It was executed, disassembled and boxed in São Paulo and brought to Curitiba for its final installation. The internal space, in the mezzanine between the two voids of the glass box, houses a table for a DJ and a dance floor.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe plastic language adopted prioritized the volumetry of solid blocks made out of reinforced concrete in a work of additions and subtractions of masses, where the circulation tunnels of the ramps and the vertical circulation volumes of the stairs rip the main body of the building, causing the facades to be represented by the circulations that run through the building. Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe front facade, more volumetric and sculptural, has few opennings as opposed to the glass box, aerial and transparent, which covers the triple-height entrance square. This is where the two stainless steel doors are – one to access the house and the other to access the private gallery – with the background of a 12 meters high U-glass cladding.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe rear facade, more extroverted and permeable, is volumetrically more stirred, conditioned by the shape and proportions of the site and by the urban legislation. It includes several openings and terraces for a better integration with the landscape.Save this picture!© Alan WeintraubThe proposed furniture, also understood as a collection, is a mix of international furniture brought from the previous houses of the owners, and a collection of Brazilian copyrighted modernist and contemporarty furniture, created by leading architects and designers of the twentieth century and the present generation.

The winners will get to spend a week with Sightsavers International in Kenya.The awards are designed to bring attention to the work done by schools that support charity and community.

The mortgages covered in the report comprised about 45 percent of all outstanding residential mortgages in the United States – about 23.1 million mortgages with principal balances totaling about $3.9 trillion as of December 31, 2014.According to the report, 93.2 percent of first-lien mortgages in the portfolios of those banks were current and performing at the end of the fourth quarter, up from 93.0 percent in Q3 and 91.8 percent from Q4 2013. Delinquent mortgage loans that were 30 to 59 days past due made up 2.4 percent of the loans at the eight banks in Q4, according to the OCC report, which was a decline of 9.4 percent from the same quarter a year earlier. The percentage of seriously delinquent mortgage loans, which are those 60 days or more past due or held by borrowers in bankruptcy whose payments are 30 days or more past due, was 3.1 percent in Q4 – a decline of 0.9 percent from the previous quarter and 12.2 percent year-over-year, according to the OCC.Foreclosure inventory, which is the number of properties in some state of foreclosure, dropped by 39.7 percent year-over-year in Q4 down to 315,022 (1.4 percent of mortgages). Foreclosure starts, or the number of foreclosures initiated by servicers, fell year-over-year by 39.4 percent down to 75,395. Completed foreclosures, which are a true representation of the number of homes lost to foreclosure, declined by 35.3 percent down to 39,331 during the quarter.The number of home retention actions implemented by servicers in the fourth quarter outpaced home forfeiture actions by a ratio of nearly four to one. Home retention actions, which included modifications, trial period plans, and shorter-term payment plans, totaled 195,577 in Q4 (a year-over-year decline of 19.5 percent) compared to 49,749 home forfeiture actions (completed foreclosures, short sales, and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure).More than 88 percent of modifications in Q4 reduced monthly principal and interest payments; 52 percent of those reduced payments by more than 20 percent. The average monthly payment reduction for modifications was $243; for mods completed under the government’s Home Affordable Modification program (HAMP) averaged a higher monthly payment reduction ($274).Out of the 3.65 million modifications implemented by servicers from January 1, 2008 through September 30, 2014, 55 percent of them (about 2.01 million) were active at the end of Q4; the other 45 percent had exited the portfolio through either payment of the loan in full or involuntary liquidation, or through the transferring of the loan to a servicer that did not report its loans as part of the portfolio. About 68.8 percent of the active modifications were current at the end of Q4 2014; about one-quarter (25.8 percent) were current, and 5.4 percent of the active modifications were in the process of foreclosure as of the end of Q4.

iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — At least 52 women have come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against a former campus doctor at the University of Southern California, police said Tuesday.The former patients of Dr. George Tyndall have accused the ex-USC gynecologist of various forms of sexual misconduct, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, which said the scope of its investigation spans more than three decades.The LAPD, which encouraged victims to call its sexual assault hotline, said it expects more women to come forward.Tyndall’s “behaviors and practices appear to go beyond the norms of the medical profession and gynecological examinations,” said Beatrice Girmala, director of the LAPD special operations department.“We want to personally outreach to those who may have been impacted and believe that have been the victim of criminal conduct by Dr. Tyndall,” she added.The women’s accounts came in the wake of lawsuits filed against the school and Tyndall by current and former students who’ve accused the doctor of molesting patients over several decades. At least six women have sued the university.One of the suits claimed USC ignored complaints that Tyndall, 71, allegedly made crude remarks, took inappropriate photographs and groped patients to “satisfy his own prurient desires.” The alleged incidents took place between 1990 and 2016, according to the LAPD.Tyndall, who worked at a USC student health clinic for 30 years, resigned last year.He denied wrongdoing in interviews with the Los Angeles Times. It was unclear if he had obtained an attorney as of Wednesday morning.USC’s board of trustees said last week that it would form a special committee and hire outside counsel to independently investigate the womens’ claims.“The behavior exhibited by the former physician was reprehensible, and we will hold people accountable if we find they failed to report or take action to ensure the well-being and safety of patients and students,” the board said last week. “To those affected, we are deeply sorry.”The university has faced criticism since the L.A. Times reported earlier this month that complaints about the doctor’s behavior had been ignored for years.USC President C.L. Max Nikias agreed to step down last week after at least 200 faculty members signed a letter calling for his resignation.“We have heard the message that something is broken and that urgent and profound actions are needed,” USC board chairman Rick Caruso said in a letter to students and faculty.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Jessica McGowan/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — Former President Jimmy Carter has undergone surgery after he fell and broke his hip.Carter, 94, fell at his home in Plains, Georgia, Monday morning as he was leaving to go turkey hunting, The Carter Center announced.The doctor who performed the surgery at the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia, said the procedure was successful, according to the statement.The 39th president of the United States is now recovering “comfortably” in the hospital alongside his wife, Rosalynn. His main concern is returning to the task he set off to complete this morning, according to the statement.“President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit,” The Carter Center joked. “He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to rollover the unused limit to next year.”Carter has faced some serious health concerns in recent years.In 2015, Carter was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma that was detected in his liver and spread to his brain. Carter announced about six months after the diagnosis that he no longer needed cancer treatment due in part to a groundbreaking medication that trains the immune system to fight cancer tumors.Two years later, Carter was hospitalized for dehydration while building homes with Habitat for Humanity in Canada. The former president was back at the work site the next day after he was discharged.Carter is now the oldest living former president in U.S. history, surpassing George H.W. Bush in March.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Home » News » Zoopla-OTM battle will “strengthen Rightmove’s dominance” previous nextProducts & ServicesZoopla-OTM battle will “strengthen Rightmove’s dominance”Rightmove is the biggest online property portal by traffic, but it still faces stiff competition from Zoopla, according to an investment information website.PROPERTYdrum1st July 20150540 Views With membership now at more than 5,000 offices and with a significant number of member offices uploading their properties to the website ahead of any other portal, OnTheMarket.com (OTM) has already established itself as one of the UK’s leading property portals, but it is Rightmove that is expected to benefit the most from the launch of OTM, it has been claimed.An article on the popular investment website, The Motley Fool UK says that dominance by one company is commonplace in the internet industry, highlighting that the likes of Google, Facebook and eBay dominate their respective sectors. “Size matters, because of network effects and economies of scale,” it said.But although Rightmove is the biggest online property portal by traffic, it points to the fact that the website “still faces stiff competition from Zoopla.”“Innovations ranging from calculating the distance to the nearest railway station and archived listings have helped Zoopla to stay in a strong second place position,” it added.Only last week, Zoopla Property Group (ZPG) launched its Real-Time Listings Service, allowing its members to send updates to property listings on ZPG websites within minutes of being updated on the agent or developer’s system or website. The service has been launched initially with Property Software Group (PSG), starting with Alto and will be followed by the roll-out across other PSG products Jupix, CFP and Vebra Live over the coming weeks.Jon Notley (right), Commercial Director at Zoopla Property Group, said, “We are delighted to be launching our Real-Time Listings Service. In a world where consumers expect instant updates, this service offers our members the chance to stay ahead of the competition and ensure their listings go live within minutes of the instruction. We look forward to rolling this out over the coming months.”But despite ZPG’s latest improvement, The Motley Fool article suggest that Rightmove’s “dominance is set to strengthen” with the rise of OTM, owed in part to its “only one other rule” preventing member agents from listing on both Rightmove and Zoopla.“With Rightmove being the busiest, it is Zoopla that loses out,” said The Motley Fool report. “Zoopla, which still managed to grow revenues by 10 per cent in the six months leading to the end of March 2015 saw the number of its members fall by 16 per cent. The worst may yet be to come, as Zoopla could see more traffic move to Rightmove, given that Zoopla no longer has a comprehensive listing of properties for sale.”With major agencies like Countrywide, LSL Property and Foxtons all remaining loyal to both Rightmove and Zoopla, The Motley Fool report suggests that OTM “will fail to build enough of a presence” denying it the number one spot in the portal market that it craves.But it is worth noting that the article was written by Jack Tang “who has a position at Countrywide” according to a footnote credit by The Motley Fool UK; the website itself has recommended Rightmove.“We Fools don’t all hold the same opinions, but we all believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors,” the article concludes.Rightmove OnTheMarket OTM portals Zoopla July 1, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Speaking to Cherwell on his decision to run, Bertholdi-Saad said: “I liked canvassing in first year and the local Labour Party wanted young people, BME people and women to run—I thought that two out of three wasn’t bad!”Bertholdi-Saad also has previous campaign experience, having helped Daniel Iley-Williamson—another member of OULC—get elected as city councillor for Holywell last year.Daniel Iley-Williamson, a Politics tutor and PhD student at Queen’s, and was hoping to be the Labour candidate for Oxford East in the upcoming general election before the selection of Anneliese Dodds, Labour’s MEP in the South East England region.This comes after the announcement that Andrew Smith, the Oxford East Labour MP for 30 years, will not be standing as a candidate in June’s snap election. This constituency contains the majority of Oxford colleges.Speaking about his reasons for running, Iley-Williamson told Cherwell: “in a parliament in which the current average age of MPs is 51, I want to bring the voice of the austerity generation to Westminster”.Iley-Williamson’s campaign is focused on the need for rent control, a higher minimum wage, free education, and defending public services. Iley-Williamson’s hopes of becoming Labour’s prospective parliamentary candidate for Oxford East were dashed when Anneliese Dodds, a Labour MEP first elected in 2014, was selected by members of the National Executive Committee.Harry Samuels, a classicist at New College and former President of the Oxford University Liberal Democrats (OULD), is running as a Lib Dem candidate. Samuels also stood for Carfax at the city council election in 2016.Speaking to Cherwell about student representation in local politics, Samuels commented: “It’s vitally important that students are part of the wider community and engage with it. We’re not some separate bubble with no right to representation, and it’s important that we stand up for what we believe in too.”Discussing his decision to run for the county council, Samuels emphasises the need to counter the hard Brexit being put forward by other parties. Like many students running in these elections, Samuels is also focusing on social care. Lucinda Chamberlain, a third-year PPE student at Brasenose, is also running as a Lib Dem candidate.Chamberlain previously ran for council in 2015 when she was 18 and is also a former President of OULD and former President of Oxford Students For Liberty. Chamberlain’s policies focus on homelessness, housing prices, and greater student representation and consideration.When asked about what she was looking forward to on the campaign trail, Chamberlain said: “I always have fun with campaigning, although it’s taken a while to get used to seeing my own names on the leaflets, and in everyone’s pidges!”“Oxford University is such an integral part of this city and its community, and yet the views and interests of most students are side-lined and ignored”.Alex Curtis, running as a Conservative candidate, is already a seasoned political activist. He is currently Deputy Chair of the Oxford East Conservative Association and has run to be a councillor before.Speaking to Cherwell, Curtis said: “I decided to run because I am passionate about many of the issues covered by Oxfordshire County Council. Good governance is a challenge, and it is very difficult to balance limited public spending with good quality public services.”County Council elections will take place on 4 May and the General Election will take place on 8 June Several Oxford students will be taking their passion for politics and student activism to a whole new level as election season approaches, with a handful standing to be Oxfordshire County councillors and one student hoping to be Labour’s new parliamentary candidate for Oxford East in the upcoming general election.County Council elections are held in May every four years with all 63 seats up for election on 4 May 2017.Students will be running for seats in divisions including Abingdon East and Cowley. The key issues for the students running are local housing, social care, homelessness, employment, and the maintenance of the environment and infrastructure.The County Council is responsible for 80% of local government services. Candidates include Lucas Bertholdi-Saad (Labour for Summertown and Wolvercote division), Lucinda Chamberlain (Liberal Democrat for University Parks division), Alex Curtis (Conservative for Isis division), Louis McEvoy (Labour for Abingdon East division), and Harry Samuels (Liberal Democrat for Cowley division).McEvoy, a second-year Historian at Christ Church and OULC member, is focusing his campaigning on the “protection and funding for services”, “the status of care work”, homelessness, and housing. He has previously campaigned during the 2016 local elections and EU referendum.Bertholdi-Saad is a second-year History and Economics student at Wadham, and is the current Wadham Student Union President and a former OULC co-chair.Writing about his campaign on the OULC website, Bertholdi-Saad said: “Locally, there are real issues that come out talking to local people as well as following local and national politics. This ranges from dangerous local trees in Jordan Hill … to larger county issues—cuts to social care, cuts to our NHS, and other unaccountable changes.”
