HEDGIE IAN WACE TAKES CHAIRMAN JOB AT ARK

first_imgSunday 3 October 2010 10:09 pm HEDGIE IAN WACE TAKES CHAIRMAN JOB AT ARK Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL KCS-content center_img whatsapp Share THE GLAMOROUS world of hedge fund philanthropy had a shuffle at the top over the weekend, as Ian Wace – co-founder of Marshall Wace – took over from hedgie “godfather” Stanley Fink as chairman of Arki Busson’s charity, Absolute Return for Kids (ARK).Wace will now be tasked with the dual responsibilities of overseeing ARK’s work – including its new maternal health programme in Zimbabwe and a rotavirus vaccination programme in Zambia – and raising as much dosh as possible from his moneyed industry colleagues.Top of the latter agenda, of course, is ARK’s annual gala dinner next summer, the most extravagant charity event of the social calendar. This year, the event – held in the old Eurostar terminal at Waterloo for the second year running and featuring a live performance by the Killers – drew the likes of Queen Rania of Jordan, models Eva Herzigova and Sophie Dahl and actor Kevin Spacey to rub shoulders with the financiers present, including GLG co-founder Pierre Lagrange, Moore Capital’s Greg Coffey and Icap boss Michael Spencer.This coming year’s event will need to be doubly special in order to mark ARK’s tenth anniversary – and I hear that a third outing at Waterloo has already been ruled out, leaving Wace to lead the search for an even more unique and spectacular venue. No tall order, then.BABY BOND BOOMAn interesting note pops into The Capitalist’s inbox from Schroders’ senior fixed income portfolio manager David Harris, who reckons that the “baby boomer” generation’s lifestyle preferences are currently heavily influencing the bond market.Apparently, following periods of very loose Fed policy in the past, baby boomers have invested their cheap money heavily into particular asset classes, depending on their age – first goods and services in the late 1970s; then into stocks in the late 1990s; then into housing in the mid-2000s.And now, as they crave stability on the approach to retirement, the boomers are piling into bonds. “Cyclical forces will normally dominate other factors, however the collective force of the boomer investment can keep yields lower for longer than might otherwise be the case,” Harris reasons. Investors, take note.CLEVER CLOGSWannabe City boffins should start putting their heads together now, ahead of the upcoming annual Brain Game, in aid of St John Ambulance.This year’s quiz will be hosted by funnyman David Mitchell, the star of Peep Show, who will lead the teams in eight rounds of questions on topics ranging from history to literature and art. KPMG are the ones to watch, since they triumphed last year at an event which raised £52,000 for charity. (This year’s is on 20 October at the Guildhall and costs £2,010 for a table of ten.

For comparison, that’s quite a bit stronger than the opening of the second Wall Street film, “Money Never Sleeps”, which took $19m last weekend in the highest grossing debut weekend of director Oliver Stone’s career.This week, Wall Street 2 was pushed in rather undignified fashion into third place, with $10.1m, by “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” – a good-vs-evil family romp featuring scores of wide-eyed owl soldiers. whatsapplast_img read more

The group’s pre-tax profit nearly trebled to £82m, while profit from continuing operations gained more than 14 per cent to £77.7m during the six months to October. The firm used its cashflow and favourable currency rates to pay down 7.7 per cent of its debt pile, which now stands at £2.19bn, and raise its dividend seven per cent to 7.12p. “We have exceeded our goal for cash generation and we have increased our target for the year from £150m to £180m, and most importantly this is excluding business disposal proceeds,” said chief executive Tim O’Toole, who replaced founder Moir Lockhead on 1 November. “We were still able to deliver despite challenging conditions.”Rail operations, which include the First Capital Connect and First Great Western lines, gained 4.4 per cent in passenger revenues.UK bus operations, which carry 3m passengers a day, saw revenue rise by 1.3 per cent. However, revenue fell 0.9 per cent at the group’s US school bus business, First Student. First Transit, which provides outsourced transit services in the US, enjoyed a 5.5 per cent rise in revenue.

House of Rolf / Studio Rolf.fr + Niek Wagemans

Introduction‘House of Rolf’ is an ambitious transformation of a late nineteenth century coach house into a spectacular home and workspace. What is truly unique about this project is that all the materials used to carry out this transformation originated from a demolished office building that was located next to the coach house. The care and meticulous way in which these materials were reapplied can be witnessed in the end result. ‘House of Rolf’ is proof that waste can be turned into something beautiful.Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkFrom office building to sculptural home and studioThe former coach house that makes up the shell of ‘House of Rolf’ was originally built in 1895 in the back garden of a wealthy aristocrat’s home located on the stately Maliebaan in Utrecht, the Netherlands. In 1955 an outbuilding was constructed in wood between the residences on the Maliebaan and the coach house. Although initially intended as a temporary structure the building stood for 57 years. In 2008, when the stately office buildings on the Maliebaan were being turned into private homes, this wooden one storey office building remained, abandoned and unused. In 2011 Rolf Bruggink acquired this building, the coach house and the surrounding terrain with the intention of demolishing the former building. The demolition process was the trigger for Bruggink to use recovered materials to construct a new sculptural and functional structure within the shell of the coach house.Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkSpatial designThe spatial design of ‘House of Rolf’, the former coach house and the sculptural and functional object it contains, was carried out by Rolf Bruggink in consultation with his girlfriend Yffi van den Berg. The coach house itself is a rectangular brick building of 15 by 7 meters and 5.5 meters tall. 5 trusses carry the roof, which neatly divide the space into 6 equal bays. The design of the space is based on this simple structure with the house divided into 3 zones each consisting of 2 bays. The first zone is left completely empty so that the original coach house can be fully experienced. The middle zone contains a structure that stands completely free from the coach house shell so that you can easily look beyond it from the first zone. This second sections of the space houses the kitchen, bedroom, toilet, shower, bath and office. By positioning this sculptural structure in the middle of the house a front, middle and back division is created. This functional object thus simultaneously divides as well as connects the space. In the third zone, a second structure is located which together with the structure in the middle zone, form ‘House of Rolf’s sculptural living space. This second structure differs from the first, in the way that it is consciously attached to the shell of the coach house, merging with it. This back zone contains more intimate living spaces. A new large format panoramic window has been cut out of the back wall of the coach house allowing light to flood into the space. This is the only intervention made into the original building.Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkSave this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkLayoutOn the ground floor, the sculptural living space houses a separate kitchen, toilet and technical space. The first floor contains a shower room, bedroom, walk-in closet and an office with bath. All the rooms on the first floor are accessible from an elevated corridor that is connected to one of the coach house walls. On the ground floor the structure stands completely free from the coach house shell so that one can walk around it unimpeded.Save this picture!Floor Plan 02Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkSave this picture!Floor Plan 01The BuildHaving determined the principle spatial design of ‘House of Rolf’, Rolf Bruggink invited Niek Wagemans to help design the project in more detail with the materials of the former office block as the sole construction material. There are no detailed technical drawings of the build, just a scale model in which the spatial design is presented. Using this model as a starting point, Rolf and Nick commenced the build developing the design further during the construction process. It was this mode of working that led to the ultimate form of the sculptural object.Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkThe self-formulated goal of the project was to use all the materials of the office building, leaving nothing to waste. To achieve this objective, Niek Wagemans’ skills as a designer were particularly useful. Wagemans’ expertise is in designing and building architectural structures and furniture pieces using second hand materials. He finds ingenious ways to re-use materials that are ready to hand to create new functional objects. The staring point of the build was to erect two walls constructed from the numerous radiators salvaged from the office building. In this initial phase the office building had not yet been demolished. Shortly after this part of the job however, the building had to be dismantled in order to free up the materials necessary to continue the build. The vast quantities of materials that this generated, led to a giant task of working out which materials to allocate to which specific section of the design. Niek’s discerning eye in looking for and picking out the most well suited material for a particular part of the construction was very important in this process. A large related challenge was to store and conserve these large quantities of materials. A part was housed in old bungalow tents on the building site. The remainder had to be contained in the coach house itself for want of other storage options. All of this amounted to a big logistical challenge.Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf BrugginkA fascinating aspect of this project was that initially there was a wealth of available materials. This being so as the office building presided over a 200 square meter surface area and the coach house a mere 50 square meters. This meant that materials could be applied liberally. For example the house includes a solid wooden partition wall constructed from trusses and purlins. A solid wooden floor was also constructed from floor beams. This generous application of materials meant however that towards the end of the build nearly the entire supply of materials had been used House of Rolf / Studio Rolf.fr + Niek WagemansSave this projectSaveHouse of Rolf / Studio Rolf.fr + Niek Wagemans The Netherlands ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/799180/house-of-rolf-studio-rolr-plus-niek-wagemans Clipboard Architects: Studio Rolf.fr + Niek Wagemans Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Save this picture!© Christel Derksen & Rolf Bruggink+ 26 Share CopyHouses, Adaptive Reuse•Utrecht, The Netherlands 2016 Photographs Houses Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/799180/house-of-rolf-studio-rolr-plus-niek-wagemans Clipboard House of Rolf / Studio Rolf.fr + Niek Wagemans CopyAbout this officeStudio Rolf.fr + Niek WagemansOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentAdaptive reuseUtrechtThe NetherlandsPublished on November 24, 2016Cite: “House of Rolf / Studio Rolf.fr + Niek Wagemans” 24 Nov 2016.

Four vertical planes open to the sky. Structural parts, trusses, boards, partitions and staircases of wood had been subtracted from its core, the surrounding shell stayed though contaminated by excessive deformation. Even if it may seem odd, the way light was passing through the “no cover” was absolutely spectacular. The sun was entering with all its strength burning the remaining woods, and filling it with shades uncommon in the houses of Porto that we had seen. These were the fragments that had been visualized in the first impact with that place, and then the project started around the idea of this house that looks in itself.Save this picture!Courtesy of ATKA arquitectosA staircase trims in curve a wooden slat plane that interposes in space, but before that, what precedes it is a transversal gap, a void of 8 meters of height and the total width of the house, that is characterized for having white and reflecting surfaces where solar light moves crossing its different levels. While the eye is directed, vertically, for this exact gap, another one is perceived in the space: a horizontal aperture provoked by the half-rise of a platform in wood, valuing the concrete ground level, in times a dark floor, and now enabling visual communication from the entrance to the exterior.Save this picture!Courtesy of ATKA arquitectosIn this exterior, a monolithic block of concrete is presented, drawn to the similarity of a granite mass, with the marked imprints of the texture of the pine boards, and standing out two black triangles of its composition.

Located on flood-prone land in Newcastle, Vikki’s Place is a type of architecture that challenges existing suburban ideals and grapples with the threat of climate change and housing affordability. This multi-generational home focuses on how the clients want to live and occupy space rather than procuring a checklist of rooms.Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe first space of the house is the entry courtyard that connects the street, undercroft, and garden to the studio and main dwelling above. As you step in from the street, the room provides a measure of both privacy and openness, creating an outdoor living to the North and screening from the sun to the west. The interior is built on a block-work podium, a provision for Council’s 1.6m high flood level, the challenge of totally extricating the home from the ground plane by such a considerable deviation, perhaps became its greatest opportunity.Save this picture!© Katherine LuSave this picture!© Katherine LuThe undercroft, not fated as a dank garage and service space acts as an area pivotal to the success of the home. Sheltered by the house above yet open to the garden it provides a generous all-purpose addition to the house’s interior living spaces. Upstairs, a single flat roof envelopes the whole plan. Bathing and sleeping spaces are on the upper level, compressed and intimate. Separated only by timber blinds, the living areas are generous and open. Maneuvering between spaces and levels invokes a sense that one is navigating between levels of terrain rather than moving room to room or outside to inside. This allows the dwelling a level of comfort and flexibility when occupied by any number of people.Save this picture!© Katherine LuSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Katherine LuAn interior of craft and honesty is prioritised over style or glamour. The fine—and at times playful— resolution of the ‘unfinished’ and raw materials allows the inhabitants flexibility and opportunity to express themselves. The materials used are only those which are required, the maker’s mark is celebrated through exposed construction detailing with everything on show.Save this picture!© Katherine LuSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Katherine LuThis approach is reinforced through the design of open joinery, exaggerated plumbing, and custom light shades. Intimately arranged, it is a multigenerational home which does not presume separation between family members. Only the studio residence, located on a balcony overlooking the entry courtyard could be termed a discrete space. It is this elemental, almost primitive construction of space coupled with the raw material treatment which on visiting the house, makes one feel instantly at home.Save this picture!© Katherine LuProject gallerySee allShow lessRestructuring of the Sanremo Annonary Market / Calvi Ceschia Viganò architetti assoc…Selected ProjectsLimpopo Youth Hostel / Local StudioSelected Projects Share Landscape: Vikki’s Place / Curious PracticeSave this projectSaveVikki’s Place / Curious Practice ArchDaily Eli Curious Practice, Built by Eli Vikki’s Place / Curious Practice CopyAbout this officeCurious PracticeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookMultigenerationalWickhamAustraliaPublished on May 27, 2020Cite: “Vikki’s Place / Curious Practice” 27 May 2020.

This Morning viewers raise more than £400k for children with cancer

first_imgViewers of ITV’s flagship daytime show This Morning have raised more than £420,000 for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people.The programme’s Christmas Appeal in aid of CLIC Sargent, which was broadcast during December, has helped to raise vital funds that the charity will use to provide clinical, practical and emotional support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.During the appeal, presenters Phillip Schofield and Myleene Klass visited CLIC Sargent’s services to see its work first-hand, and celebrity gardener Diarmuid Gavin gave one of its ‘Home from Home’ facilities a garden makeover. The programme also showed the stories of several families who have been supported by the charity.Lorraine Clifton, Chief Executive at CLIC Sargent says: “CLIC Sargent is delighted at the magnificent response to This Morning’s Christmas Appeal and, on behalf of the children and families we work with and support, I would like to thank everyone who donated to the appeal.“Every day, 10 children and young people across the UK are given the news that they have cancer. CLIC Sargent wants to be there for every one of them, to provide care for them in hospital and at home, to help the whole family cope with the practical and emotional impact of cancer and treatment.“We rely on donations and lack of funds means that currently we can only help two out of three children and young people with cancer. The generous support from This Morning viewers will help us to be there for hundreds more families, through treatment and beyond.”On the show with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: –Phil said, “Thanks to your generosity we raised a massive £423,422!”Holly said, “That is amazing – thank you so so much. That’s the most we’ve ever raised and every penny will be going to CLIC Sargent to help children with cancer.”Phillip added, “It’s such amazing support and it really is appreciated by everyone here and everyone at CLIC Sargent so thank you very much – you’ve made a massive difference and we are absolutely thrilled with that.”Karl Newton, Executive Producer of This Morning said, “This Morning’s viewers never cease to amaze me, they, during incredibly hard times have dug deep, organised events and gone to extraordinary lengths to raise money for our annual Christmas appeal.“To raise the amount we have is astonishing and simply brilliant for the charity CLIC Sargent. One young viewer wrote on her Father Christmas list that she wanted the money for one of her presents to go to the appeal… such heart warming suggestions have proved how powerful the show can be.”ENDSNotes to editorsFor more information, an interview or images please contact Nicola Frame on 0208 752 2812 or email [email protected] Outside office hours please call 08448 481189.About childhood cancerEvery day, 10 children and young people are told they have cancer and diagnosis usually comes as a shock.

Immigration’s Affect on the Housing Market

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Immigration’s Affect on the Housing Market  Print This Post Share Save About Author: Brianna Gilpin Subscribe May 19, 2017 1,534 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Every year, the United State’s real estate market is becoming more culturally diverse. According to Alex Nowrasteh, immigration policy analyst from the Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, stemming from immigration, the interest from foreigners alone will strengthen home sales activity and price. The National Association of Realtor’s (NAR) Danielle Hale, managing Director of housing research, was joined by Nowrasteh at the 2017 Realtors Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo to discuss the current and future impact foreign buyers have on the U.S. Housing Market.According to Nowrasteh and the 2015 American Community Survey, of the roughly 321.4 million residents in the U.S., 278.1 million are native, and the remaining 43.3 million, made up of 20.7 million naturalized citizens and 22.6 million non-citizens, are foreign-born.“Immigration affects rents and home prices far more than it affects the labor market,” said Nowrasteh. “An expected 1 percent increase in a city’s population produces a 1 percent uptick in rents, while an unexpected increase results in a 3.75 percent rise.”In regards to studies conducted on immigration and housing, Nowrasteh explained most of the impact would be where immigrants tend to reside: low-to-middle income counties.Referencing NAR’s 2016 Profile of International Activity in the U.S. residential real estate, Hale said foreigners view the U.S. as a great place to buy and invest in real estate.“A majority of foreign buyers in recent years are coming from China, which surpassed Canada as the top country by dollar volume of sales in 2013 and total sales 2015,” said Hale. “Foreign buyers on average purchase more expensive homes than U.S. residents and are more likely to pay in cash.”Hale foreshadowed where future sales activity from immigrants will take place explaining that roughly half of all foreign buyers purchased in Florida, California, Texas, Arizona, or New York.
