A Townhome You’d Actually Like to Live In: Cor-ten Clad, Bright, and Private. On a commercial lot, an existing, single-story building was in disarray and disrepair. Seattle-based Hybrid was approached by the owner to partner on a redevelopment plan to tap into the lot’s high potential– creating four spacious homes, each with a flex space for extra income or living space. These are not your average townhomes; with a striking corten exterior and close connection to a new cafe, the homes were designed to stand out while rooting into the street and neighborhood. In addition to the flex space, Steel Stacks offers a private yard, tall ceilings, lots of light, and a spacious, enclosed rooftop deck, or skyroom.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Rafael SoldiSeattle is experiencing urban flight–prospective homeowners attracted to the elements of suburban living like front porches, back yards, and more room and light are leaving the city’s core. The team heard a challenge: Provide these elements in the urban context. With Steel Stacks, give homeowners the living experience they seek and deserve. Keep them here, rooted in the city they know, which knows them, to which they add character and a story. Overlapping are cost concerns–what can a middle-class income buy me anymore? Is it worth it? Steel Stacks serves as an example of how market-rate development, too, can be built well and cost-effective, offering an option within reach to young professionals and creatives, avoiding displacement and providing a flexible design to accomodate living here for a long time to come.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiRealizing this project, Hybrid made several key moves–none of them perhaps more visible than the corten cladding seen on the exterior of the homes. Robert Humble, Principal of Hybrid: “We like to employ honest materials that can age gracefully and provide a striking contrast to the standard ‘hardi party’ found on most Seattle townhouse projects. The corten will never need to be repainted and reflects the commercial character of the site.” Steel Stacks is just half a mile away from the Nucor steel plant that informs the neighborhoods’ history and development. Romanticising and rooting in the industrial, Steel Stacks honors the past. At Nucor, steel is recycled and turned into rebar–in Steel Stacks, the material is translated into a lofted home full of opportunities and quirks unique only to the commercially zoned context.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe team celebrated roof water collection with enlarged scupper boxes and routed the downspouts to a continuous bioretention planter at the base of the building. This planter creates a vegetated mote that is crossed by a timber bridge to access the front door–a very Pacific Northwest vignette. Inside, the team opted for a reverse floor plan, placing the living room at the top of the home allowing for light, views and ready access to the enveloped rooftop deck. South-facing window walls bring light deep into the homes, with the front two and rear two units staggered to allow for corner windows to look out to the front and back of the site. Two bedrooms and a large shared bath occupy the middle level, with the lowest level comprising the “flex space” that can serve as an AirBnB, home office or master bedroom. The rooftop deck, or skyroom, incorporates full 10’ parapet walls with framed openings to provide exterior rooftop privacy and create a true exterior room. Outdoor string lights will create a virtual “ceiling” to the skyroom.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiRobert Humble, Principal: “We take pride in our spatial and material experimentation and feel there is no other townhouse in Seattle that looks anything like this one. Plus, the ground-level flex spaces allow the building to change over time as the needs of its occupants evolve, addressing issues such as housing affordability, displacement and density.” Thoughtfully designed for people who value design and community connection, Steel Stacks embodies a central Hybrid ambition: creating beautiful density. By partnering with the original property owner, Hybrid is providing access to equity to existing residents, resulting not in displacement but growth–a vision for a rapidly gentrifying city that’s easy to get behind.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Well House Boutique Hotel / ATLASSelected ProjectsJP Lab / XU StudioSelected Projects Share Steel Stacks House / Hybrid Houses Area: 6600 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHybridOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeattleOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on December 09, 2020Cite: “Steel Stacks House / Hybrid” 08 Dec 2020.

Property dating app for vendors and agents launched

first_imgHome » News » Property dating app for vendors and agents launched previous nextProducts & ServicesProperty dating app for vendors and agents launchedFixed price sale, rather than love, is aim of new online serviceNigel Lewis14th February 201701,693 Views A cupid couple in Lancashire have launched a property dating app for vendors and agents that, they claim, integrates Rightmove with the functionality of dating app Tinder.Husband and wife team Rachel and Mark Worrall’s service is called, perhaps predictably, Love2move which, the couple says, enables high street agents to offer fixed price online property sales of £895 alongside their existing sales operations.The service will enable agents to compete with their corporate competitors such as Countrywide, which in its case is currently rolling a similar dual-fee model across its network.The Worralls (pictured, above), who between them have experience in property and marketing and are both 30, say they had their lightbulb moment last year when they moved house.Mark, who works for his mother’s property marketing agency MovingWorks, and Rachel, who is a career marketeer, realised when they moved house that others in their age group were being attracted to cheaper online agents but losing out on the valuable local knowledge offered by traditional agents.Love2move is designed to fill the gap between traditional and online agents, the couple say, and is aimed at what they describe as “internet-savvy millennials looking to save money by taking control of their sale”.The couple have therefore designed their Love2move app to work like Tinder, in that users swipe left and right to accept or reject properties they want to buy, and also chat directly with vendors – or even chat up.Sellers then have the opportunity to pay an additional fee to access other services, such as sales progression or help with negotiations, the couple say.The service would also appear to have the blessing of the NAEA. Mark Hayward, chief executive of NAEA Propertymark, is quoted within their promotional material as saying: “The way consumers interact and engage with different services is constantly evolving, and property professionals need to adapt and evolve to meet these demands; a large part of that is embracing technology. Any model that can enhance our agents’ offering is a good thing.”love2move Rightmove Tinder February 14, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
