A bold yet minimal residence in Troon North contrasts against the organic softness of the desert floor and rising Pinnacle Peak Heights to the east. The geometric layout of the planters and sharp edges of block walls, accented with dark metal slots and apertures, stand against the backdrop of the mountain and desert brush. Save this picture!© Miguel CoelhoEntering the tall volume of the foyer not only connects one to the picturesque desert through a soaring two-story window but also calls attention to bands of light intermittently cast through the walnut stair treads. The plan is carefully organized to shield views of the neighboring properties while an ample wall of retracting glass choreographs the flow of air and light, allowing the home to become an extension of nature.Save this picture!© Miguel CoelhoSave this picture!Rendering SectionSave this picture!© Miguel CoelhoOutdoor recreational spaces, sheltered by deep cantilevered roofs, are framed by low concrete block walls to maintain continuous visibility to the desert context. The terrace provides a peaceful platform for watching the sunset give way to the twilight skies and sparkling lights of downtown in the distance.Save this picture!© Miguel CoelhoWindow fenestration is articulated to compose a succession of desert scenes as one travels upstairs: framed views prompt one to ascend the walnut stairs, quick glimpses to the remote horizon redirect one to peer into the master bathroom, then expansive views reward one with all-encompassing tranquility in the master bedroom.Save this picture!© Miguel CoelhoProject gallerySee allShow lessMadison Park Ranch House / SHED Architecture & DesignSelected ProjectsSidral House / CampoTallerSelected Projects Share Area:  4100 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Manufacturers: Bosch, Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope, Subzero/Wolf, Arcadia Custom, VALVO CopyAbout this officeKendle Design CollaborativeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesScottsdaleUnited StatesPublished on April 04, 2019Cite: “Troon Modern Residence / Kendle Design Collaborative” 04 Apr 2019.

Swiss lawmakers reject variable pension payouts

first_imgSwiss pension providers are unlikely to be permitted to alter pension payouts to retirees after a committee of MPs rejected a proposal to allow flexibility around existing payments.The group of 22 politicians – known as the SGK-NR commission – narrowly voted down the proposal, making it unlikely that parliament would approve it.The motion was put forward by Green Party MP Thomas Weibel in December 2017 to help ease the mounting pressure on Pensionskassen from fixed pension payouts. The pressure has increased due to high conversion rates and low interest rates.In Switzerland pension levels are promised when a contract with a Pensionskasse is signed, meaning adding variable elements to existing pension promises is almost unprecedented. In their reasoning, the committee argued that variable pension payments would “bring great uncertainty” to members of Pensionskassen.Additionally, the committee said that introducing such a fundamental change to the second pillar could interfere with other pension reforms currently under discussion.Those who voted in favour of the motion cited the “unfair” use of active members’ accrued assets to pay existing pensioners’ benefits, as was the case with a number of Pensionskassen in Switzerland.A small number of companies have introduced a form of top-up element that can vary with time, while 1e plans for high earners also have variability for payouts – but in most cases this only applies to new members.Overall, the concept – even for new contracts – is regarded with scepticism by the Swiss pensions industry. Variable pension payments were the subject of a heated debate at a conference in Zurich organised by regional supervisor BVS. Pension funds welcome decisionAfter the vote, the Swiss pension fund association Asip welcomed the commission’s decision.“Without a minimum guarantee the reliability of the occupational pension system and people’s trust in it would be strained,” Asip warned.Rather than introducing a variable element to existing pensions, the lobby group called on Pensionskassen to “issue much more cautiously defined guarantees today to allow for possible surpluses to be shared with pensioners in the future”.Under current regulations, inflation-linked pension increases have to be granted by individual funds and do not happen automatically. Payouts can be increased but cannot be cut, even when a pension fund is in financial trouble.Lower levels of guarantees in future contracts could still prove insufficient to help Pensionskassen that are struggling with keeping promises made when interest rates were higher.Weibel has brought forward several motions over the past few years to reform the occupational pension sector, including one aimed at making infrastructure investments more attractive for Pensionskassen.This was approved by both chambers of parliament last year but has yet to make it into legislation.last_img read more

Messi snogs stunning wife Antonela but leaves fans ‘disturbed’

first_imgBarcelona forward Lionel Messi has left fans feeling “disturbed” after he locked lips with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo for a music video. The 32-year-old and his partner showed their passion for one another in Puerto Rican musician Residente’s video showing 113 kisses from around the world during the coronavirus crisis. Messi’s Argentinian compatriot Paulo Dybala – fresh from recovering Covid-19 after testing positive four times – also enjoyed a steamy snog with his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini. And Hollywood actor Ben Affleck was another high-profile celebrity to feature as he and his new 007 girlfriend Ana de Armas went public with their love for each other. But it was Messi’s affection for his wife that left fans shocked, with supporters of the six-time Ballon d’Or winner not used to the Blaugrana ace showing his affection. As Messi and Roccuzzo share a kiss during the song titled ‘Antes Que El Mundo Se Acabe’ – which in English translates as ‘Before the World Ends’ – the lyrics go: “I know the future is uncertain but even if they close borders they can’t close the sea. We’ll soon get out.”Advertisement Loading… read also:‘Ronaldo was the best’ – Carlos, dismisses Messi, CR7 comparison Fans immediately took to social to comment on their uneasiness, as one said: “I feel like throwing up after that Messi kiss video.” Another commented: “Who filmed this Mateo or Thiago. I’m sick it’s like watching my own parents kiss I’m so disturbed Messi wtf.” Another simply stated: “Can you stop posting that Messi kiss video please.” Other celebrities featured in Residente’s video include Ricky Martin smooching his husband Jwan Yosef and rapper Bad Bunny and girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri. Residente, real name Rene Perez Joglar, was a founding member of Puerto Rican rap fusion band Calle 13 before initiating a solo career in 2015.
