A typical Tel-Avivian residential building, built in the international style during the 1930’s and found in a bad state of the repair was the staring point. The project included adding an external lift and roof extension to the existing 3 stories structure whilst refurbishing and structurally strengthening the whole building. Save this picture!long sectionThe design approach was to integrate the new build with the character of the building, by working with the existing mass and materiality, establishing continuity between elements like the decorative facade cornice and the new lift. The structural work included underpinning the foundations and bracing the building with UPN and flat steel profiles which were mostly concealed in the new render applied to the building. The roof extension consists of a full extra floor and a partial floor above that, constituting one residential duplex unit.

Light coming in from the south facing windows on the top level is filtered down through a floor opening and a perforated steel staircase, connecting the two levels. The area left between these two structural holes acts as a “bridge” between the flat and the front roof terrace.

This system was chosen in order to maintain a thin continuous roof slab which consists of a horizontal strip that is followed by a steep pitch.

The ‘Conundrum’ Surrounding the GSEs

first_imgNearly since the time Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac entered government conservatorship in 2008, some have called to release them back to the private market. At the same time though, there have been constant echoes that the GSEs need to remain countercyclical. Playing a countercyclical role in the private market is simply infeasible, according to Don Layton, a senior industry fellow at Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. The former CEO of Freddie Mac called the notion that the GSEs could remain countercyclical post-conservatorship “quite wrong” and “fundamentally inconsistent” in a Joint Center blog post released Wednesday. In short, he explained that “if a source of mortgage credit has private sector capital supporting it, it cannot truly be countercyclical. … Only the government—as the owner of the money printing press—can ignore market conditions.” Without government backing, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will need to maintain substantive capital, just like other private financial firms, and they will need to adjust to market conditions—also just like other private financial entities. To remain countercyclical, the government would either need to exempt the GSEs from capital requirements or provide capital itself as it did in the last financial crisis, Layton explained, adding “But do we really want to go through that again?” “Perhaps it’s time to be realistic: countercyclicality is for FHA and VA, as direct government entities. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae should be assumed neutral, at best, and more likely somewhat procyclical, just like the banks,” Layton stated. “So we have a conundrum,” Layton said. The GSEs’ charter requires them to be countercyclical, but and end to conservatorship necessitates they become pro-cyclical. Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Dr. Mark Calabria alluded to the delicate balance between maintaining appropriate levels of capital and risk while also fulfilling the statutory mission of keeping the market liquid when speaking before the National Association of Home Builders last month. Calabria called capital “the foundation of safety and soundness regulation” and explained that the FHFA is “looking closely at the risk profiles of Fannie and Freddie to ensure they match their capital levels and support their statutory missions.”The FHFA recently hired a financial advisor to help plan toward and end of GSE conservatorship. Prior to their conservatorship, the GSEs did play a largely countercyclical role in the housing market due to their Congressional charters and large government subsidies, Layton pointed out. However, in 2008, their ability to remain countercyclical with private sector capital came to an end.“After all, how could they not be procyclical when facing massive losses and rapidly deteriorating capital ratios?” Layton said. While the private-label securitization market, banks, and the GSEs must respond to economic cycles to remain viable, there are two entities that can and maintain a countercyclical role in the market: the Federal Housing Administration and the Veterans Administration. “Their funding is directly on the books of the government, their securitization guarantees carry the full faith and credit of the government, and they have no equity holders or stock price to worry about,” Layton said. Thus, while other entities retracted during the financial crisis, FHA and VA market share grew from about 5% to about 20%.  Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago February 13, 2020 3,616 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Tagged with: Fannie Mae Freddie Mac GSEs Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Fannie Mae Net Worth Rises to $14.6B Next: Trump’s Pick for Federal Reserve Board Questioned During Hearing  Print This Post Fannie Mae Freddie Mac GSEs 2020-02-13 Mike Albanese The ‘Conundrum’ Surrounding the GSEs in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Newscenter_img Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The ‘Conundrum’ Surrounding the GSEs Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Krista F.
