Photographs: Massimiliano BozonellaText description provided by the architects. This project is a modern, urban two-unit townhouse designed by Zack | de Vito. Its construction consists of a 3-story wood frame structure over a concrete basement/garage. The site is a typical San Francisco lot, 26′ x 115′, with a moderate to steep upslope. The project was undertaken as a design build project with the Architect also being the owner and the general contractor. The North unit is the owner/architect’s home, and the South unit was sold. The design/build/develop strategy allowed the owners to build a new, modern home in the almost inaccessibly expensive Bay area housing market. The design build strategy also allowed an extraordianry amount of design freedom during construction, with details being worked out continuously through construction.Save this picture!© Massimiliano BozonellaProject description, images and drawings after the break. Save this picture!© Massimiliano BozonellaThe program was for two townhouses consisting of side-by-side units, three floors over a basement/garage. Each unit has a two car, tandem garage and a mechanical/storage room. Unit A is +/- 2,530 sqf, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a family room and an entry/den, and an open plan Kitchen/Living/Dining Room, which opens out to a terraced rear yard. Unit B is 1,800 sqf, and has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a full floor, open plan Kitchen/Living/Dining Room. Both units also have a front deck over the garage. Each unit has a dramatic, central stair connecting all of the levels. Save this picture!© Massimiliano BozonellaThere were three primary goals for the project: First, to design an obviously modern building, but one that was also sensitive to the predominantly Victorian character of the neighborhood. Second, the intent was to design two units that had equal access to the natural amenities of the site – light, air and views, as well has to have a clear, diagrammatically simple plan, but be spatially dynamic. Third, as a design/build project, the goal was to take advantage of the extra-ordinary control this process allows, and be expressive in the use of materials, detail and craft. Save this picture!PlanWhile being clearly modern, the building has similar scale, massing and materials as its 100-year-old neighbors. Its form is clearly of its time, but it also uses time-honored elements such as a bay window and the front garages with decks above. Materials are also familiar, but used in a more contemporary, expressive manor. Save this picture!PlanThe most distinctive characteristic of the project though is its plan and spatial configuration. To allow side by side townhouses, a center dividing wall, angled from front to back, creates trapezoidal spaces, one end wide, one narrow. The program was then adapted to best use the large and small ends of the space where appropriate. The space is then divided in plan by a dramatic central stair, which allowed for changes in section, with some rooms taller than others. The dynamic plan and section create lively, clearly organized and interesting spaces. Save this picture!PlanThe center stair epitomizes the attention to craft and detail. It is fabricated from water jet cut steel plate and precision cut, sanded acrylic. It is a collection of pre-fabricated parts, assembled on site by our own crew of craftsmen. It is structurally daring and the translucent steps and minimal structure flood all four levels with light. The fabrication techniques take advantage of new technologies, while still allowing for the craft of the worker to be expressed.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessBiomass Power Station / Hinton Cook ArchitectsArticlesBeton Hala Waterfront Center CompetitionArticlesProject locationAddress:1645 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

ReddIt Linkedin Welcome TCU Class of 2025 printThe fallout from COVID-19 is causing a $90 million shortfall in TCU’s operating budget.Chancellor Victor Boschini outlined the university’s position Wednesday in an email to faculty and staff. The shortfall, about 16% of the university’s $558 million budget, results from a “slight decrease” in enrollment, increases in financial aid for online classes and need-based aid, and changes to athletic programs with lower anticipated revenues, Boschini wrote. The official enrollment level will be determined the 12th day of class. Boschini explained that if the pandemic causes “significant decreases in campus-wide activity,” there could be changes such as modified schedules, furloughs or reductions in full-time positions. Some of those reductions could be included in the Phased Teaching Load incentive program for faculty and the Voluntary Incentivized Retirement Program (VIRP) for staff. Those who are eligible for the VIRP are able to take an early retirement in exchange for a lump sum benefit. So far, TCU has identified cost reductions totaling $58 million in employee benefit changes, a freezing of open positions, a deferral of merit increases and decreases in costs, especially related to travel, food and shuttle services. This leaves $7 million for the vice chancellors to find as offsets to the increased financial aid.Of the $90 million shortfall, $65 million, or 12% of the operating budget, is expected to become a permanent cut in the budget in fiscal year 2022. This is meant to make the university more affordable, come closer to matching the financial aid resources of its aspirant schools and enroll a more diverse student body, Boschini wrote.“We can expect that lower tuition increases coupled with increased financial aid offerings will continue as a part of our new normal,” he wrote. In addition, the university is making these changes to prepare for an “enrollment cliff” in 2026 stemming from the “baby bust” associated with the 2008 financial crisis. In November 2019, the Board of Trustees tasked the university to fulfill the following goals over the next three years: Increase financial aid to become competitive with the country’s best schools in attracting top-performing students and a more diverse student population; Bring down tuition increases, which have spanned from 4.8% to 8% over the past 10 years, to 3% or lower;Keep the 14-to-1 student ratio in accordance with its plan for responsible enrollment growth; Build the endowment to $3 billion, with a focus on raising scholarship funds; Examine academic programs, investing in the ones with the greatest potential effect and exploring new ones that generate revenue; Emphasize long-term financial sustainability by reducing debt and reallocating resources to strengthen TCU and expand its reach.“Now, we focus squarely on the future, knowing that the tough decisions and actions we take this year will determine our ability to be one of the top American institutions that come through these tumultuous times even better positioned for long-term success,” Boschini wrote.

Follow the news on Iran Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists IranMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en News Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists June 9, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemns the government’s decision to expel Tehran-based journalist Ángeles Espinosa, the correspondent of the Spanish daily El País. The authorities cancelled her residence permit on 10 October and gave her two weeks to leave Iran, where she has been an accredited journalist for the past five years. No explanation was given.Espinosa’s press card was withdrawn when she was arrested in Qom in July after interviewing Ahmad Montazeri, the son of Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, a leading reformist cleric who died in December 2009. The Foreign Press Bureau told her at the time she would be able to recover it when she returned from her summer vacation.Instead, her passport was also confiscated last month, following her return from her vacation. When it was given back to her on 10 October, the residence permit stamp had been cancelled. The International Committee against Stoning has meanwhile reported that two German journalists were arrested on 10 October while interviewing the son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a woman whose death sentence by stoning for adultery was recently suspended. The son and Sakineh’s lawyer, Houtan Kian, were also reportedly arrested.The Iranian news agency INSA quoted prosecutor-general Golam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie as confirming the arrests of two foreigners who had “entered Iran as tourists.”Coming at a time of continued active repression of the Iranian media, this return to censorship of the foreign media is particularly disturbing, Reporters Without Borders said.

However, rising mortgage rates will weigh on the market going forward, and mortgage originations will drop a little over 25 percent in 2017, almost exclusively as the result of plummeting refinances.”In Q4 2016, the nation saw a 1.9 percent jump in GDP growth, and as of February, the Consumer Price Index increased 2.7 percent over the year. Unemployment also dropped 4.7 percent, and nonfarm employment rose by more than 230,000 jobs. Despite this growth, the Fed announced a rate hike earlier this month and hinted that more may be in the future for 2017. As a result, mortgage rates are on the rise, averaging 4.3 percent by the week of March 16—about half of a percentage point higher than they were one year ago and three-quarters higher than last summer.But interest rates aren’t the only thing putting impacting housing affordability. According to Freddie Mac’s outlook, home prices are outpacing income growth significantly, and that’s putting a home purchase out of reach for many citizens.“Since January 2000, home prices have risen a bit faster than incomes, though recently home price growth has outpaced income growth by a wider margin,” the report stated. “But house prices have accelerated in recent years while per capita disposable income growth has been more stable. For example, in 2016, house prices rose 6.2 percent while per capita disposable income increased 3.4 percent.”Come spring, this disconnect could block many potential homebuyers from the market, the report stated.“As we get into the spring selling season, we expect affordability to start to bite in many markets pushing some prospective buyers to the sidelines and contributing to a modest decline in total home sales in 2017 relative to 2016.”In total, Freddie Mac predicts total 2017 home sales to hit around 5.9 million.
