It is, a thread of light infiltrating into a small gap. It is a little house built on 56.2㎡ size of land. The deformed geographic figure makes the land look even smaller. However, the dwelling family and their lifestyle are never so small compared to the geographic size. The mission was a single-family house with a workshop in the basement. Young married couple with one little daughter chose this land adjacent to an elementary school. The size of land may not large, but the plan of uses are plenty.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooSave this picture!Urban ContextSave this picture!© In Keun RyooThe couple could not leave Seoul (the capital city of South Korea) due to their occupational and nurturing reasons. Therefore, their choice was to build a dwelling on a piece of land in the suburbs, free from restraints in social activities and child care. This way, they decided to build ‘their’ house for the first time ever.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooI named the project: ‘CREVICE’- A small land amid a big city. Physically, the word means ’a small, narrow crack or space’ (Cambridge Dictionary), but it can also be used as an ’opportunity’ or ‘spare time’. My definition of the word is the ‘Light Gap’ open to a bright thread of light.Save this picture!Floor PlansAfter launching the concept, ‘Crevice’ became the title theme of the entire plan. I intended to avoid the small space from looking confined, through the shape of the windows, the method of lighting, and the sense of connectivity between floors. From where I stand, I wanted the dwellers to be able to recognize the movements at the floors above and below and maintain a visual connection.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooThe inside was planned to use ‘skip-floor’: a structure with divisions from the landing on one side. The small inner part features spaciousness, thanks to the ‘crevice’ between the floors. Most of the small suburban areas have narrow roads. In this case, the road facing the planned site is 6 meters wide. Thus, there could be embarrassing risks in privacy through front windows of houses across the road.Save this picture!Perspective SectionHence, the house is designed to receive suns through the window at the southern corner, and all remaining windows are placed to secure privacy from neighboring buildings as much as possible. The configuration of all the programs is in vertical. Nearly every movement between spaces require the use of stairs which initially to segment the spaces that are being frequently used and those are not in order to efficiently compose the program.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooBuilding houses in suburb area do face many challenges. Trace of a not well-maintained area and the physical environment cause troubles during the construction. Nevertheless, caring the little emotion and impression of the city may trigger to changes in the city landscape, even with a tiny piece of land.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooProject gallerySee allShow lessSino-Italian Ecological and Energy Efficient Building / Mario Cucinella ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Portal House / Reasoning Instincts Architecture StudioSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© In Keun Ryoo+ 45 Share “COPY” 2017 Hangil Engineering ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/880382/crevice-house-theplus-architects Clipboard “COPY” ArchDaily Area: 133 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Moowon Construction Manufacturers: Younhyun, Eagon, Haanong, Namudongwha, Toro CopyHouses•Seoul, South Korea Mechanical Engineer: Constructor: Crevice House / ThEPlus ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCrevice House / ThEPlus Architects Hanjun Cho Photographs Houses Lead Architects: Sunhwa engineering Structural Engineer: Crevice House / ThEPlus Architects South Korea CopyAbout this officeThEPlus ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeoulSouth KoreaPublished on September 27, 2017Cite: “Crevice House / ThEPlus Architects” 26 Sep 2017.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News August 18, 2015 1,434 Views St. Louis Fed Casts Doubt on the Effectiveness of QE and Zero Interest Rate Policy Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Print This Post Federal Reserve Quantitative Easing St. Louis Fed Zero Interest Rate Policy 2015-08-18 Brian Honea Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe In a recently released white paper analyzing actions taken by the Federal Reserve in the immediate aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, St. Louis Fed VP Stephen D. Williamson questions a few of the central bank’s policies and the effect they have had on the economy.In a section of the white paper titled “Unconventional Monetary Policy After the Great Recession,” Williamson covers three areas which he says comprised a program of “unconventional policy” by the Fed starting in 2009: The zero interest-rate policy (ZIRP); quantitative easing, or large-scale asset purchases; and forward guidance.Even though the Fed’s ZIRP is nothing new, since the interest rate on reserves during the Great Depression was zero, Williamson points out that it is unprecedented in post-1951 United States. He contends that the ZIRP period constitutes a “liquidity trap” in which reserves and Treasury bills are “essentially equal assets.” Williamson said that the zero interest rates enacted by the Fed in 2008 and are still in place have not had their intended effect on inflation. Instead, he said, “the relevant long-run determinant of inflation, in a nominal-interest-rate-targeting monetary regime, is the level of the nominal interest rate. Indeed, mainstream monetary theory and the experience of Japan for the last 20 years tells us that extended periods of ZIRP lead to low inflation, or even deflation.”It is possible, Williamson said, for the Fed to become permanently trapped in ZIRP because of the Taylor rule that dictates how much the Fed should raise rates in response to other economic conditions.”If the playbook for the Fed’s forward guidance in the post-Great Recession period was supposed to have come from received macroeconomic theory, then it seems clear that the FOMC was not following instructions correctly.””With the nominal interest rate at zero for a long period of time, inflation is low, and the central banker reasons that maintaining ZIRP will eventually increase the inflation rate,” Williamson wrote. “But this never happens and, as long as the central banker adheres to a sufficiently aggressive Taylor rule, ZIRP will continue forever, and the central bank will fall short of its inflation target indefinitely.”QE, which consisted of purchases of long-maturity Treasury securities and mortgage-backed securities, has served to increase the Fed’s balance sheet by more than four-fold since before the crisis and substantially increase the average maturity of the Fed’s assets, according to Williamson. But while the Fed’s rationale for QE was articulated by then-chairman Ben Bernanke in 2012, Williamson said that the theory behind QE is “not well-developed.””Further there is no work, to my knowledge, that establishes a link from QE to the ultimate goals of the Fed inflation and real economic activity,” Williamson wrote. “Indeed, casual evidence suggests that QE has been ineffective in increasing inflation. For example, in spite of massive central bank asset purchases in the U.S., the Fed is currently falling short of its 2 percent inflation target.”Janet Yellen, Chair of the Board of Governors Federal Reserve SystemForward guidance was an attempt on the part of the Fed to provide more explicit information on policy statements instead of letting the central bank’s actions speak for themselves, according to Williamson. Like the ZIRP, however, Williamson says the Fed’s forward guidance may have had the opposite effect of what was intended.”If the playbook for the Fed’s forward guidance in the post-Great Recession period was supposed to have come from received macroeconomic theory, then it seems clear that the FOMC was not following instructions correctly,” Williamson wrote. “‘Extended period’ is far too vague to have any meaning for market participants; monetary policy rules should be specified as contingent plans rather actions to take place at calendar dates; ‘thresholds’ are meaningless if nothing happens in response to crossing a threshold. Thus, the Fed’s forward guidance experiments after the Great Recession would seem to have done more to sow confusion than to clarify the Fed’s policy rule.”To read the complete white paper, click here.

The all-black dog, Yuri, was found Thursday morning off of Carlls River, south of Montauk Highway, Lost & Found Pets of Long Island said on Facebook. “Words cannot express our deepest sympathy or the heartache we feel at Yuri’s loss,” the post read. Yuri went missing Wednesday after a record-breaking storm dropped more than a foot of rain on parts of the Island. The male Russian Terrier, who was collared and microchipped, was last spotted getting swept under the overpass on Park Avenue sometime around 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Facebook group. Yuri’s flier generated thousands of shares and inspired many in the community to search for the missing pet. Lost & Found Pets of Long Island reported that 60,000 people “viewed” their post on Facebook. The group also reported a possible sighting at around 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and that the family of the missing pet was alerted. “They are still searching and will be heading to the area tomorrow morning as well,” the post read. But Thursday morning brought the tragic news that Yuri was found dead—a victim of the powerful storm that broke a New York State record for rainfall in a 24-hour period. Here’s the post reporting the sad news:
