Great ExpectationsWhat would you expect, when entering a 250 m2 loft at De Rotterdam, the biggest building of The Netherlands, (designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas), at the height of 143 meters, on the 43rd floor? Rotterdam seen from the air shows the omnipresence of water flowing through the city centre. The 25 meter total glass façade stretching from floor to ceiling, offers you a view of the Maas river, flowing through the city towards the Rotterdam harbour. You will look down upon the Erasmus Bridge (designed by UN Studio), the Markthal (designed by MVRDV), the city centre, Delft and on a clear day even The Hague is part of the view. Save this picture!Before 1Save this picture!Existing SituationFlow like the riverSuppose you go up 143 meters high and enter a living room with a 35 meter wide panoramic view on the Rotterdam cityscape. Which interior could match this overwhelming view? From above you will discover that the city is a flow: the water is an important part of the city. We took ‘flow’ as a design language for the interior. We used it for wavy floor and ceiling patterns and a 20 meter long curvy walnut wooden wall. With these gestures we were able to create a big open 150 m2 living area with grandeur and create places within this open space that feel intimate as well. The curvy walnut wall hides all the living necessities such as the television and storage room, as well as hidden entrances to bedrooms. To avoid that the huge glass walls will evoke an ‘unprotected’ experience of the open space, the long wavy screen of wood is used as a background. It covers the cupboards of the living room and kitchen. It guides you to the bedroom area, as the wall and doors are part of the bedroom. An 8 meter long ‘flowing’ cooking island transforms from a cooking area into a bar area and will give you one of the best panoramic views. This furniture is designed for small family rituals as well as big party events.Save this picture!© Hannah Anthonysz Save this picture!Plan 1.3Save this picture!© Hannah Anthonysz Two apartments, one luxury penthouseIn order to create a spacious home, 2 properties are combined into this one luxury penthouse. One apartment is designed as one big living area including kitchen. The second apartment includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a jacuzzi and a sauna – 6 meter long bathroom for the master bedroom with a view towards the Rotterdam harbour – a jacuzzi besides the bed in the master bedroom – a glass sliding door behind for semi outside experience. Even from the 2 person shower you can enjoy the view because you can look all the way through the 13 m long bathroom and bedroom.Save this picture!© Hannah Anthonysz Project gallerySee allShow less2016 Architecture iPhone Photography Awards AnnouncedArchitecture NewsAndré Chiote Illustrates Iconic Works by Schmidt Hammer Lassen for their 30th Annive…Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Rotterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Predictions for the 2019 Housing Market

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Redfin’s Chief Economist, Daryl Fairweather, predicts the housing market will continue to cool into the first half of 2019. Among the seven predictions for the year ahead, Redfin forecasts a rise in homeownership rates and rise in inventory to be back at 2017 levels. Price hikes will record the lowest numbers since 2014. Speaking of investors and house-flippers, Fairweather expects them to back away from the market. She noted that real estate companies that buy homes from consumers to quickly sell at a profit are likely to face challenges as the market cools. Local housing issues will have tech companies and local governments continue to “go head to head,” she said. Redfin’s 2019 predictions anticipate price growth to stay around 3 percent in the first half of the new year, a drop from the 7 percent recorded around the same period last year. Though a booming economy and increased access to credit will drive homebuyer demand, higher interest rates will make homeownership an expensive affair for many—creating doubts about the rebound of home sales next year, the report said.According to the report, more inventory and less competition will be key features of the market of 2019. Homeownership has been consistently growing from its post-recession valley of 63 percent in 2016 to above 64 percent this year. It pointed out that an increase in mortgage-rate to 5.5 percent by the end of 2019 would mean about a $100 increase in monthly mortgage payments on a $300,000 home.The heat of rising rates will affect lenders as their costs of lending will lead to flattened demand for services—compelling lenders to reach out to low-income borrowers and first-time homebuyers, Fairweather wrote. Redfin also predicts fewer homes to be built and an uptick in starter homes that are easier to sell than luxury homes. The per-unit values of building permits will also decline in 2019. Low unemployment is projected to increase the wages for low-income workers, impacting both demand and supply and demand for housing, the report indicated. Institutional buyers will face their first serious test wherein buyers who made money from nearly every sale in a rising market with low-interest rates could start to face losses if homebuying demand falters on account of higher interest rates and stock-market volatility, the report stated.

Alicia Hansen’s transition to softball fulfilled her dream of playing for Syracuse

first_img Published on January 27, 2019 at 11:57 pm Contact Anthony: [email protected] Alicia Hansen walked into her grandfather’s basement for another baseball practice. The basement was about 15-feet wide, and though the turf-padded walls and batting screen weren’t much, it was enough for Hansen to practice.Each night, Hansen’s grandmother yelled from upstairs about the constant thuds from balls crashing into the ceiling. The basement ceiling wasn’t high enough for Hansen and her grandfather, John Prichard, to throw back and forth while standing on their feet. So they got on their knees. The two played catch, kneeling on the turf that Prichard had installed.One by one, the more they played, the lightbulbs cracked, falling from the ceiling and crashing into hundreds of small pieces. Even as bulbs broke, the play continued. Hansen rocketed balls off the padded walls of the basement, developing skills she could use on the actual baseball diamond.“It wasn’t a big space at all, but we went down there at any time of any day,” Hansen said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow a senior at Syracuse, Hansen always wanted to play baseball at SU. The only problem: SU didn’t have a baseball team. Hansen never wanted to make the switch over to softball. But to go to her dream school, she had no choice.Hansen’s transition to softball began on a spring Thursday night when she was 12 years old. Less than two years later, she began her career as a 5-year shortstop at Liverpool High School, which led to a four-year starting career at SU in multiple positions.Even as other schools recruited Hansen, she turned them down. She only wanted to play for Syracuse, not just because it was only 11 miles from home, but because it gave the man who introduced her to baseball a chance to attend games and practices.“My grandpa got me to where I am today,” Hansen said. “I would not have the skillset I have if it wasn’t for him. I think I owe it to him to play where he can see me.”Hansen was just four years old when she caught Nick Spataro’s eye. Spataro, then the high school softball coach at Liverpool, watched as his son played on the same Little League team as Hansen’s older brother, Jay Josef. Hansen attended the games, running around, practicing with Prichard.“‘That girl is going to play for me one day,’” Spataro remembered saying of Hansen. “She was that good already.”Susie Teuscher | Digital Design EditorIn elementary school, from third to sixth grade, Hansen began her afterschool walk down Wetzel Road in Liverpool, where Prichard often greeted her with a bucket of balls, a bat and a glove in his hands.She worked with Prichard almost every day to improve her skills on the baseball field directly across the street from the high school. The crossing guard and other students would frequently stop to watch her, Hansen quipped.She continuously “played up” on the boys’ baseball teams. At 10, Hansen was invited to play in the major division, where she battled 11 and 12-year-old boys. When one boy from an opposing team made fun of Hansen for being a girl, Renee Hansen, Alicia’s mother, recalled her daughter’s teammates stuck up for her.“‘Yeah, she’s a girl, and she can play better than you,’” Renee recalled a teammate saying.When Hansen was 12 years old, she hit a homerun at an all-star baseball tournament. Josef told her after the game that it was then he realized Hansen was already better than he was.She went to Cooperstown All Star Village, an annual tournament with dozens of teams from across the east coast. Hansen was the only girl at the tournament, which drew lots of attention. Initially, she wasn’t allowed to live in the bunks with her male teammates. After some protest, Hansen was allowed to stay with the boys. On the field, she won multiple game balls and hit two homeruns.“I even asked (Spataro) if he wanted me to move her to softball earlier,” Renee said. “He told me no, ‘Keep her right where she is.’”After Cooperstown, Spataro was ready for 12-year-old Hansen to finally switch sports. He had kept Hansen in baseball for years to develop her skills, specifically with sliding and diving, but the time had come for her to begin a new athletic endeavor.Immediately after Hansen’s all-star baseball game on a Wednesday night, Spataro called Renee.He needed her on his softball team, and her time with baseball had run out. She had spent her entire athletic career on the baseball diamond, a similar, yet mechanically-different challenge. The following night, Hansen walked out onto the softball field for the first time.“You don’t really see any girls playing Major League Baseball,” Hansen said. “I’m sure maybe one day it can happen, but as of now the statistics aren’t going to be in my favor.”Initially, she struggled with timing. While she had an edge playing at a higher competitive level with the boys, she said, trying to hit the ball out of a completely different release point proved challenging.Some of the rules and mechanisms were different, too. During one game, with a runner on second, Hansen fielded the ball at shortstop. In baseball, the shortstop will often look off the runner at second, then throw to first, Spataro said.Hansen did exactly that. Except in softball, runners are taught to go on contact because of the shorter distance between bases. After hesitating, Hansen’s throw was too late to get either runner, and both were safe.Jordan Phelps | Staff PhotographerTo keep her athleticism, Hansen spent four nights a week at CNY Speed Training, even during the season. She did agility and speed drills with Frank Rey and Dennis Dewane, two trainers, to help her transition to baseball.“She didn’t like the strength training as much as the cardiovascular training,” Spataro said. “But when I see her now, she always jokes that she wishes she had done more of the strength workouts.”Less than two years after switching to softball, Hansen started at shortstop as an eighth-grader at Liverpool. Former SU player Sydney O’Hara was then a player for frequent-competitor Cicero-North Syracuse High School, and the two’s rivalry began. Hansen ended multiple of O’Hara’s no-hit bids in her time at Liverpool.“She was always the Liverpool player I feared because she was the only one who had a good chance of getting a hit off of me,” O’Hara said.When C-NS beat Liverpool in the sectional final during O’Hara’s senior year, O’Hara consoled Hansen, who cried on the field for almost 10 minutes.During O’Hara’s freshman year at SU, she gave Hansen campus tours and helped introduce her to the program that Hansen had longed to play for. At that time, SU wasn’t even recruiting her, yet.Hansen had been to every camp she could go to since she was young. Eventually, during the winter of her junior year, then-head coach Leigh Ross offered. She accepted before leaving Manley Field House.“I didn’t even apply anywhere else,” Hansen said. “My heart was set on Syracuse, and this was the only place I wanted to go.”Despite playing in tournaments across the country for TC Tremors, her club softball team, and receiving attention from multiple Division I schools, Hansen only wanted and needed one offer to make her college decision.In the first game of her softball career at SU, a fall ball game, Hansen broke her left wrist tripping over first base while running out a ground ball. It was the first time she had ever broken a bone. And while she couldn’t hit regularly or play the field, she continued to workout.She fielded balls with her cast, improved her throwing, lifted with her right arm only and practiced swinging with only one hand. She missed the entire fall season, but when spring came around, Hansen had earned her role as starting second basemen.When she took the field for the first time at SU Softball Stadium, Hansen was firmly entrenched in a sport she never dreamed to play. But, she was at her dream school, playing in front of Prichard, who made it all possible. Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more
