Position is defined  from history and experience.  The way in which settlement and Patagonicranches  were placed in those far away lands. Isolated volumes arranged among each other in order to build a shelter. The simple volumes  were intended to provide protection from the wind, searching the distant views that announced the the visitor’s arrival or in certain ocassions a warning of danger such as, fires, were also controlled from that privileged sight. A long life work and effort could not be destroyed by a ray or flame. Our lodge is concieved as simple volumes, using the place’s scale were traditional patagonicarchiterture and a more contemporary one, merge.Using the same patterns, the position of the lodge is oriented in order to provide protection from strong winds, rain and snow. The lodge opens itself through the landscape, considering the forest distant view and the snowy mountains as a backcurtain. The idea of locating separate volumes, bedrooms, club house…. was intended  to place the visitor in the “Deep Patagonia”, experiencing the posibility of having the four seasons in one day, which is very characterristic in the zone.Save this picture!© Fabio Stingo & Alejandro MacayaThe choice of color was an essential one. A dark color, almost black on walls and surfaces was used  to avoid emphasizing the presence of the lodge in the small urban section of Villa O`Higgins. Design considerations: The total surface of the lodge is about 540 m2., design and materials were selected based on a friendly atmosphere. This implied a low visual impact, efficient use of energy, avoiding the use of firewood for bedroom heating and fuel transfer such as gas or petrol from Coyhaique. The decission was to use low electric heaters. A thermic construction based on pre-manufactured materials which minimize the execution timing and avoid destroying the local forest.Save this picture!© Fabio Stingo & Alejandro MacayaThe remote location and the difficulty in reaching the zone were considered as important elements , (540 kms from Coyhaique). As well as the weather conditions which determine the isolation standards. The short period of time for the construction and the start-up stage,   as welll as the limited amount of workers and the possibility lo enlarge the construction in the future according to the requests were also an important issue to consider.Save this picture!© Fabio Stingo & Alejandro MacayaProgramatic Lay Out: The lay out is organised  by using three buildings: Two  with six bedrooms each one , including a private bathroom for each one. The bedrooms measure 24 squre meters. There is a terrace connecting the bedrooms and  a common garden made by volumes.Save this picture!© Fabio Stingo & Alejandro MacayaThe main building or club house was designed as a big shed  with a Patagonic hall towards the street and two “chifloneras” entrances. This building includes the reception, a family room, dinning room and a small winter garden, completely glassed and north oriented which provides natural heating through the interior. It also contains a small kitchen, an emporium with fine suppplies for the guests which are highly requested in these faraway lands.  Bathrooms and the administration office are found here.Save this picture!© Fabio Stingo & Alejandro MacayaOn the second floor shown towards the main area, there is a room offering maps, videos and books about the Patagonia. The room also provides a desk with a notebook. Next to the club house, the service area is located, including a laundry zone  for the guests and a   place for the administrative workers.

Florida Regains Nation’s Highest Foreclosure Rate in November

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribe Previous: Foreclosure Filings Decline in November Despite Increase in Starts Next: DS News Webcast: Thursday 12/11/2014 Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The highest foreclosure rate of any state once again belonged to Florida in November after being displaced by Maryland in October, according to RealtyTrac’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for November 2014 released Thursday.Florida has now had the nation’s highest foreclosure rate in 13 of the last 14 months, according to RealtyTrac. Prior to Maryland posting the highest foreclosure rate for October, Florida had the top rate for 12 straight months.Both month-over-month and year-over-year declines could not keep Florida from regaining the nation’s highest foreclosure rate. Overall, one in every 462 residential properties in Florida had a foreclosure filing (which includes default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions) in November, marking a 4 percent decline from October and a 15 percent decline from November 2013, according to RealtyTrac. It was the 16th consecutive month that the Sunshine State saw a year-over-year decline in foreclosure filings.While foreclosure activity has been declining in Florida for many months, things have been going in the opposite direction for New Jersey.  The Garden State has seen a year-over-year increase in foreclosure activity for 11 of the last 12 months, including a surge of 196 percent in November, according to RealtyTrac. The huge increase pushed New Jersey from ninth in October to second in November in foreclosure rate. In all, one in every 478 residential housing units had a foreclosure filing in New Jersey in November, RealtyTrac reported.In Maryland, foreclosure activity declined month-over-month from one in every 400 units in October to one in every 581 units for November, dropping the Old Line State from first to third among states for highest foreclosure rate, according to RealtyTrac. However, Maryland saw a 93 percent year-over-year increase in foreclosure completions.Delaware, which had the sixth highest foreclosure rate in October, saw increases month-over-month in both foreclosure starts (24 percent) and foreclosure auctions (34 percent), pushing the First State into the fourth position for the highest foreclosure rate, according to RealtyTrac. One in every 693 residential housing units in Delaware had a foreclosure filing in November, RealtyTrac reported.A spike in foreclosure activity in Utah in November pushed the Beehive State from 12th to fifth for the highest foreclosure rate. REO activity surged by 83 percent month-over-month and 20 percent year-over-year in Utah in November, according to RealtyTrac. November marked Utah’s first year-over-year increase in REO activity since June 2011, ending a string of 41 consecutive months with a decline. Utah’s foreclosure rate in November was one for every 750 residential housing units.Rounding out the top 10 for foreclosure rate were Nevada (sixth, 1:783), Illinois (seventh, 1:848), Ohio (eighth, 1:865), Indiana (ninth, 1:932), and South Carolina (10th, 1:933), according to RealtyTrac.

At HUD This Week …

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago This week promises to be a busy one at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with a report on homelessness, the resignation of HUD’s Deputy Secretary Pamela Patenaude, and the question of the impact of a partial government shutdown looming over the agency. Read on to learn more about all that is impacting the agency this week.Pamela Patenaude ResignsPamela Patenaude, Deputy Secretary at HUD announced her decision to resign from her position at HUD and leave the agency in the new year. In a statement, Patenaude said that serving at HUD had been the highlight of her 35-year career in housing. Indicating that she would be returning to her home state of New Hampshire, Patenaude said, “It has been an honor to serve President Trump and Secretary Carson and I am deeply grateful to both for this opportunity. Thank you to my HUD family and fellow “housers” for helping Americans access decent, safe, and affordable housing.”Patenaude was sworn in as Deputy Secretary in September 2017. In this position, she led HUD initiatives that included granting $5 billion in disaster relief funding for Texas after Hurricane Harvey, signing a memorandum of understanding with Israel to increase collaboration between the two countries on myriad issues involving housing, community development, and mortgage finance, and grants to speed up the housing recovery in Puerto Rico.While it remains to be seen who would be filling Patenaude’s position, FHA Commissioner Brian Montgomery has been appointed as the Acting Deputy Secretary for HUD. “Pam Patenaude has been a dynamic and effective deputy secretary, which is one of the most important housing positions in any administration,” said David M. Dworkin, President, and CEO at National Housing Conference. “She has been a passionate advocate for relief efforts in Puerto Rico, and a key voice on behalf of housing within the Trump administration.”He added, “The good news is that Secretary Carson has built a strong team at HUD. Brian D. Montgomery will be an outstanding acting deputy secretary and should be considered a front-runner for a permanent appointment.”HUD and the Government ShutdownThere are only five days to go before funding expires for several key federal agencies, including HUD, while the Republicans and Democrats debate over the funding for the border wall with Mexico. If both the sides aren’t able to resolve their differences by midnight December 21, the government is likely to head towards a partial shutdown.According to the Washington Examiner, past shutdowns have hit HUD hard, with almost 96 percent of its employees on furlough during that period.In an advisory to its employees when a government shutdown threatened its funding in January this year, HUD had said that in case of a shutdown, the agency’s operations and most of its functions would cease “unless they are legally excepted activities.” A large majority of HUD employees are non-excepted, which means that they are prohibited from working during a shutdown.A Look at HomelessnessOn Monday, HUD presented its Annual Homeless Assessment Report to the Congress. The report is released in two parts with the first part providing the point-in-time (PIT) estimates offering a snapshot of homelessness on a single night. According to the PIT estimates, approximately 553,000 people were experiencing homelessness across the country on a single-night in 2018. Of these, about two-thirds, or 65 percent, were staying in sheltered locations such as emergency or transitional housing programs, and one-third, or 35 percent, were in unsheltered locations such as on the streets or living in abandoned buildings.The report also indicated that the number of homeless people on a single night increased by 0.3 percent between 2017 and 2018, while the number of unsheltered individuals increased by 3 percent during the same period. The number of people experiencing homelessness in families with children continued to decline, by two percent between 2017 and 2018, and by 23 percent between 2007 and 2018.Click here to read the full report. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News December 17, 2018 1,485 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.
