A spectacular site, artistic freedom, and clients with a vision came together to create the perfect opportunity for CLB to design a modern art piece on the banks of the Snake River. The 20-acre property brought its challenges. An Army Corps of Engineers-built berm created a visual barrier to the water, and a healthy cottonwood grove, though offering the ultimate in privacy, screened the views to the Tetons. The architects’ solution was to build platforms on site to study the river, the seasons, and the views, then elevate the home five feet above ground level to lift the main living area above the riverine meadow.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Matthew MillmanThe architects designed the house and guest house in a stripped-down plan: as two bars set perpendicular to each other, the house running east/west, the guesthouse running north/south. The structures exemplify a simplicity of line and material palette and are connected by wood decking, which creates a shared outdoor space that capitalizes on warm southern light. There, a bosque of aspen trees provides shadow and texture and acts as a focal point within the natural clearing. From that seasonal outdoor living space, one looks through the living room of the main house to the Tetons beyond. This transparency renders the structure less imposing and further connects the home to its site.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanOn both sides of the home, echoed in the guest house, ten-foot overhangs run the length of the building. The resulting carved-out spaces, lined with cedar, provide warmth and a natural element, as well as a contrast against the metal skin of the building. The naturally varicolored cedar is laid in a carefully detailed undulating pattern to create texture and shadow play, while the steel on the exterior of the building is designed to weather over time — its ‘living finish’ slowly rusting to a patina as the home further integrates with its site. Exterior materials are carried inside with board-formed concrete, white plaster walls, and cedar ceilings. Floors of architectural concrete contain bits of green glass for added texture and interest.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanIn the main volume, the double-height kitchen/dining/living area opens in its length to north and south with floor-to-ceiling windows, while the fireplace stack — created from board-formed concrete in which some boards project and some recede for added texture — grounds the room. On the entry end of the building, the architects created a two-story component within the long building; this allows for children’s bedrooms above with a guest room, garage, and statement powder room below. (The only windowless room in the house, the powder room reads as a tunnel: arched full-length mirrors indefinitely reflect the brass railroad tracks set in the floor, creating a dramatic trompe l’oeil tunnel effect). Engineered beech floors upstairs and painted millwork in the mudroom and media room provide contrast to the cedar.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanIn the living room, CLB designed architectural lighting in channels to avoid interfering with the beauty of the ceiling then chose key statement decorative lighting pieces throughout the house. They worked with the clients on all furnishings to bring a comfortable, casual elegance to spaces that might otherwise feel grand using texture and saturated colors. On the home’s north side, a ten-foot-wide deck with its attendant overhang runs the length of the house, rising to the second story on the east end. This multipurpose outdoor space encompasses an outdoor kitchen and dining area with grill and pizza oven, ties the master bedroom suite at the west end to the rest of the house, creates additional entertaining space off the living room, provides access to the meadow, and engages with the river— a simple and elegant solution to multiprogram goals.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanProject gallerySee allShow lessSugar House / Architects49 House Design LimitedSelected ProjectsLast Call for Submissions: INSPIRELI AWARDSStudent Competitions Share ArchDaily JM Engineers PLLC, Missoula, MT Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Matthew Millman+ 60Curated by Paula Pintos Sharecenter_img Riverbend Residence / CLB Architects Architects: CLB Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Hershberger Design KL&A Inc.

first_img Pinterest Facebook Local NewsBusiness By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Twitter TAGS  CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Bank of America today announced it will triple its affordable homeownership initiative to $15 billion through 2025, aiming to help more than 60,000 individuals and families to purchase homes. First launched in 2019 as a $5 billion initiative, the Bank of America Community Homeownership Commitment® helps low- and moderate-income homebuyers across the country begin to build their personal wealth and family legacy through the power of homeownership. The company has surpassed this commitment, and in doing so has already helped nearly 21,000 individuals and families purchase a home through affordable loans and over $180 million in down payment and closing cost grants. “Homeownership is an incredibly powerful force, helping families to build wealth over time and strengthening our communities. It can be challenging to save enough to buy a home, so it’s no surprise that we’ve seen an overwhelmingly positive response to our programs. We are excited about our goal of helping an even greater number of homebuyers to prepare for homeownership now and in the future,” said D. Steve Boland, president of retail at Bank of America. Today, half of Bank of America’s home loans are to low- and moderate-income or multicultural families and communities. The Community Homeownership Commitment focuses on helping put people on the path to affordable homeownership through a combination of specially-designed products, resources and expertise. The program includes two proprietary homebuyer grant programs to help prospective buyers with the upfront costs of homeownership:Down Payment Grant program – this program helps customers overcome the biggest barrier to homeownership – down payment. In more than 260 cities and counties across the country, eligible buyers can receive 3% of the home’s purchase price up to $10,000, whichever is less, to be used toward their down payment. No repayment is required.America’s Home Grant® program – this program offers a lender credit of up to $7,500 that can be used towards non-recurring closing costs, like title insurance and recording fees, or to permanently buy down the interest rate. The funds do not require repayment and can be combined with Down Payment Grant funds to lower the cost of homeownership. When the grant programs are used together, homebuyers receive on average of about $14,000 to help with their home purchases. The grant programs are often used in combination with low down payment mortgages to significantly reduce the upfront funds required to purchase a home. Low down payment loans are competitive, fixed-rate mortgages with down payments as low as 3%, requiring lower-cost – or even no – mortgage insurance. Today, nearly 85% of these loans go to first-time homebuyers. This commitment complements Bank of America’s $1 billion, four-year commitment to help advance racial equality and economic opportunity. The work focuses on closing the racial wealth gap in Black and Hispanic-Latino communities with a focus on affordable housing, health and healthcare, jobs/reskilling and small business. Through the Community Homeownership Commitment, Bank of America is addressing two of the biggest barriers to homeownership — down payments and closing costs — which will increase access to homeownership for thousands who have historically not been able to own a home. Bank of America offers additional resources in preparing for homeownership. The Bank of America Real Estate Center® makes it even easier for prospective homebuyers to identify grant-eligible properties. The newest feature labels properties for sale that qualify for down payment and closing cost grants offered by the company. Future buyers can also prepare for homeownership using the company’s First-Time Homebuyer Online Edu-Series™, available in English and Spanish, which provides an easy-to-understand roadmap to buying and financing a home. Bank of America serves low- and moderate-income clients’ and communities’ homeownership needs through multiple channels, including through financial centers across the country and our Digital Mortgage Experience.

first_imgWXYZ(DETROIT) — Calls to a tip line led to the arrests of five former Michigan priests over allegations of sexual misconduct.Michigan’s attorney general announced the arrests Friday and detailed the charges against the men, who previously worked at different dioceses in the state.Michigan is one of at least 15 states or territories that have an active inquiry into sex abuse by Catholic clergy.Four of the five men named by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel at a Friday news conference have been arrested.The fifth is now living in India and Nessel said authorities hope to extradite him to the U.S.Nessel said there were “many other cases” she wanted to prosecute but didn’t because they had reached the statute of limitations, the former priests were deceased or the victims did not want to come forward.“These were cases that were chargeable cases for us,” Nessel said.“This is only the tip of the iceberg,” Nessel said.“We estimate we are only 5 or 10% at most through the information that we currently possess,” Nessel said, adding that she has received more than 450 tips through the department’s tip line.“We anticipate many more charges and arrests as we continue to move forward with our work,” she added.The five cases involved four boys and one girl, who ranged in age from 5 years old to 26 at the time of the alleged abuse.Patrick Casey, 55, who faces one felony count of criminal sexual conduct and was arrested in Michigan on Thursday, is accused of “performing oral sex on the victim during confession,” according to Nessel.His alleged victim, 24, was in the process of converting to Christianity when he first reached out to Casey in 2012. “John Doe proceeded to tell Casey that he wanted to kill himself and that a voice was telling him that it would be better if he was dead,” according to the criminal complaint.“As John Doe spoke about his struggles with suicide and his concern about dying in mortal sin, Casey, who was dressed in black clerical garb, steered the conversation towards sex, telling him that he could not have a gay relationship and go to heaven,” the complaint said. Casey then shared with John Doe that he too was gay and “shared a suicidal story of his own,” the complaint said.The sexual activity began “during this confession” and “the two engaged in various other sexual acts after Casey initiated groping and performed oral sex on John Doe,” the complaint said.Timothy Michael Crowley, 69, faces four felony counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree and an additional four felony counts of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree. He was arrested in Tempe, Arizona, on Thursday.“Crowley would masturbate” in front of the alleged victim, who was a 10-year-old altar boy. In other instances, Crowley “provided cigarettes and alcohol to John Doe and touched his buttocks and his genitalia over top of his clothing,” the complaint said.The complaint details other forced touching and oral penetration, as well as the threat that Crowley allegedly made, telling John Doe that if he notified his parents or a nun about the abuse, Crowley would kill him.The complaint states that the Diocese of Lansing paid John Doe and his family $200,000 in 1993 for a release of all claims against Crowley but the complaint also states that the civil agreements do not impact the criminal charges.Vincent DeLorenzo, 80, faces three felony counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree and an additional three counts in the second degree. He was arrested Thursday in Marion County, Florida.DeLorenzo allegedly had contact with a boy around the age of 5 or 6 beginning in 1995 and continuing until 2000.The criminal complaint details instances where DeLorenzo would inappropriately touch the boy, which happened “on many occasions” after DeLorenzo would pray.Neil Kalina, 63, faces one felony count of criminal sexual contact in the fourth degree and was arrested on Thursday in Littlerock, California.Kalina allegedly supplied a teen boy between 12 and 14 years old with alcohol and drugs, including marijuana and cocaine, and fondled his genitals in the early 1980s.Jacob Vellian, who is 84 years old and is currently in India, was not arrested. He faces two counts of rape.The female victim in this case, Jane Doe, was 15 in 1973 when she was a volunteer in the rectory of the parish where he served as a priest.He allegedly repeatedly fondled her, touching her breasts while reportedly saying that he was “trying to fill [her] soul with the Holy Spirit,” according to the criminal complaint, which also details other explicit instances.Investigations are underway in Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, the District of Columbia and the Archdiocese of Anchorage in Alaska.In March, the attorney general of West Virginia filed a civil complaint against the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, alleging that the diocese had “engaged in unfair or deceptive acts or practices by failing to disclose to consumers of its educational and recreational services that it employed priests and laity who have sexually abused children, including an admitted abuser who the Diocese nevertheless allowed to work in a Catholic elementary school.”Spokespeople for several state attorneys general told ABC News that their offices were reviewing options and considering taking similar actions.Leaders from more than 100 countries and regions met in the Vatican in February to discuss the abuse epidemic.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The likelihood of disputes arising from overseas travel has increased due toglobal threats such as terrorism, political instability and SARS outbreak. A poll conducted by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development(CIPD) last month found HR practitioners responsible for managing globalassignments and overseas relocation do not expect activity to stop, despitesuch threats. Less than one per cent said they would be cancellinginternational staff transfers and just six per cent would impose temporaryholds. “The key risk for an employer is of an employee jumping ship followingan instruction to travel, resigning and claiming constructive dismissal byreason of a breakdown in trust and confidence,” said David Morgan,employment partner at Burness. “They may be able to argue that foreigntravel was not, in practice, a contractual requirement.” Employers may be partic-ularly at risk from claims where employees travelinfrequently, as they could argue that “custom and practice” meansany contractual mobility clause is negated, he added. It is vital to ensure overseas mobility provisions are enshrined inemployees’ contracts with their consent, following consultation, Morganadvised, and remind staff in writing of existing contractual provisions ifnecessary.
