Yaya house / Manuel Ocaña

first_imgArchDaily Text description provided by the architects. This is a project where one cannot dismiss the personal dimension of the commission: the refurbishment of an attic for my mother-in-law, Canadian, my daughters’ grandmother. It is a project that detects traces, records them, and leaves new prints for the ‘next one’ that may wish to search. And the idea is to build it following a different protocol. This new construction protocol, its agents and that sort of mystique of the traces will be the ‘Project’.Save this picture!An oak wood dais of 140 millimeters over furried boards seems to be the appropriate canvas to register the levels of the traces and then build the dwelling on top in order to silence them. The work starts at floor level after the usual procedures of spatial and structural cleansing. That floor, that wood surface, shall unveil the encountered traces. On the one hand detecting the traces, discovering a network of concealed geometries that are outlined when laying the floors through a precise detailing of the boards; on the other, the new traces are stamped by drawing on top of the discovered geometries the portrait of the beautiful woman that will live in the house. Save this picture!This involves a carpenter, an enthusiastic student of fine arts, Photoshop, the Xiladecor palette on the market, aniline and a set of gouges to engrave the drawing in the terrace. End of the first stage.The unveiled geometry and the three rear windows determine the repositioning of the partition walls that define the two bedrooms and bathroom required. And the leitmotiv of the next step of the building protocol is ‘on top and dry’. Everything built is dry and on top of… there are no interferences; not among the materials, not among systems, not among the guilds that participate. The trace of the portrait is silenced by placing the partitions and furniture on top. There are only wonderful stains on the floor. Perhaps the next resident will discover the secret.Project gallerySee allShow lessFloating House / MOS ArchitectsSelected ProjectsVanguard Way / Morrison Seifert MurphySelected Projects Share Projects Houses Architects: Manuel Ocaña Area Area of this architecture project Yaya house / Manuel OcañaSave this projectSaveYaya house / Manuel Ocaña Spain Area:  67 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeManuel OcañaOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodMadridRefurbishmentHousesSpainPublished on December 28, 2008Cite: “Yaya house / Manuel Ocaña” 28 Dec 2008.

William Lacy Clay, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance. He added that while Congress has passed trillions of dollars in stimulus packages, including the proposed $3 trillion HEROES Act, there is “much more that needs to be done. “One of the most important things that we can do to respond to this pandemic, is to keep people in their homes,” said Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee. She added the pandemic could have created a wave of foreclosures and evictions that would have made it harder for the economy to recover. Clay said there are lessons to be learned from the Great Recession, which saw African-American homeownership fall 23%. Clay added that while many are recovering the downturn a decade ago, COVID-19 is “disproportionately” hitting minority households. Rep. Steve Stivers, Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance, said Congress has taken “extraordinary” steps to address the issues and impacts of COVID-19. “Workers who aren’t getting paid because of the health crisis can’t pay their rent or their monthly mortgage, so the CARES Act provided forbearance for mortgage payments and protected renters from evictions,” Stivers said. He noted that there was widespread confusion over forbearance measures and come homeowners said they “lack clarity” from servicers on what they owe. Stivers, however, praised the Federal Housing Finance Agency for not only providing clarity, but also announcing lump sum payments are not required when leaving forbearance. The roundtable included insight from Kristy Fercho, Chairwoman of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) of President of Mortgage for Flagstar Bank. She said mortgage servicers have played an “integral role  in providing an unprecedented amount of payment relief for customers.” She added since March, MBA members have provided forbearance to more than four million customers and loans in forbearance have grown to more than 8%. Also, the average wait time for a customer has fallen from 13 minutes to 2 minutes. Jenny Schuetz, Fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program,, Future of the Middle Class Initiative, said that eviction moratorium put in place by the CARES act, while an attractive short-term solution, is “not a long-term solution.”  She said the moratoriums could lead to rents accumulating more debt they cannot pay off, cause ripple effects as the lack of payments are needed for landlords, and it could discourage people from being landlords moving forward. Also appearing on the roundtable was Diane Yentel, President and CEO, National Low Income Housing Coalition, said: “patchwork” eviction moratoriums approved by Congress offer short-term relief, but there is now a “financial cliff” when rent is owed after the pandemic. She added Congress should enact a universal moratorium on evictions during the duration of the pandemic. She also said Congress should provide the $100 billion in renter insurance, as proposed in the HEROES Act.  Home / Daily Dose / Impact of COVID-19 on Renters, Homeowners Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more
