It offers qualities like spatial proximity to the city center, the extension of the new ‘west train station’ as well as an ambitious environment and convenient infrastructure. Both client and architects were dedicated to developing a building that represents and encourages this progress and creating a new quality of living. Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausSituated on a sloping site with panoramic view towards the ‘Wiental’ and at the ‘Wienerberg’, the building connects a 1960s detached apartment building with the adjacent row of historic houses. Both complementing the surrounding structure and making a strong architectural statement were aspects that guided us through the design process. Save this picture!planObserving these parameters HOLODECK architects decided to interpret the building as an ‘urban landscape’ and to transform the stratification of the area into the topographic layering of the building. Save this picture!planThis approach and the local building regulations in mind HOLODECK architects developed a Z-shaped, gradually layered volume that accommodates 20 apartment units and an underground car park. All of the six stories provide surrounding balconies and terraces. Through floor to ceiling french windows the interior living spaces extend to semi-private outdoor spaces and further into the urban environment.

A generous foyer and a green courtyard with playground and common areas visible from the street entrance underline the open character of this building.

The circumferential outdoor spaces are lined surrounded by sheets of expanded aluminum adjusted to let sunlight in and to keep curious glimpses out, its anodized surface giving it a silky reflection. Together with the lava-coloured facade panels the shimmering aluminum bands characterize the appearance of the building.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausProject gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / Task ArchitectsArticlesCCA 2011-2012 Exhibitions and Public ProgramsArticlesProject locationAddress:Turnergasse 24, 1150 Vienna, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Tagged with: brand Celebrity Marketing neuroscience Research / statistics 119 total views, 1 views today An international study on brand properties encourages charities to use a more scientific approach to building and strengthening their brand. Those that tamper with their brand, for example when a new CEO or director of marketing is appointed, risk damaging supporter confidence, destroying ‘brand memory structure’ and in some cases promoting competitors.The study is a collaboration between Phil Barden, Managing Director of Decode Marketing and author of ‘Decoded: The Science Behind Why We Buy‘, and David Taylor, Managing Partner of international consultancy the brandgym, and author of ‘Grow the Core: How to Focus on Your Core Business for Brand Success’.Charities and brand propertiesThe research is “the first global study on brand properties”, namely shape, slogan, sound, symbols, celebrity and similar elements.Its authors point to considerable opportunities to charities for building iconic charity brands if they use a scientific approach that draws on neuroscience and psychology. They can enhance their brand by considering and adopting a wider set of brand properties such as sonic and shape.The survey found that 95% of marketers use logos as brand properties and 85% use colour, but only 18% use sonic branding.[quote align=”right” color=”#999999″]Charities continue to focus on the obvious – logos and colour – whereas properties such as shape, sound and image can be powerful assets in building iconic brands[/quote]Conversely, charities can damage their brand and supporter confidence if they make changes to their brand based on subjective decision-making or as a result of staff changes. Furthermore, the study’s authors argue that celebrities can have a low or negative “Branding Power Score™” and should be used with caution.Indeed, the survey found that 55% of marketers change their brand properties due to organisational change, especially a change in marketing director, with a further 20% changing brand properties based on a judgment call. Only 24% of marketers change brand properties strategically based on quantitative data.Phil Barden explained:“One reason for the current, and narrow, perspective on brand properties is a misconception about how the consumer, or supporter’s, brain perceives and processes brand properties. Charities continue to focus on the obvious – logos and colour – whereas properties such as shape, sound and image can be powerful assets in building iconic brands, something we see so clearly in some of the major charities brands – you only have to think about a poppy or a red cross, a panda, a daffodil for powerful and evocative brand recall.” Advertisement Global study highlights risks to charities of tampering with their brand 120 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 The researchThe research was carried out in July and August 2014. It involved a survey of 85 senior marketing professionals from Europe, Africa, Asia, USA and Latin America. In addition, 1,000 UK consumers took part in the Iconic Asset Tracker™ (IcAT) study. Developed by Decode Marketing, this uses techniques from cognitive neuroscience to evaluate brand properties regarding their impact on branding and brand equity.The IcAT study measured the strength of brand properties, highlighting the ‘iconic assets’ that activate the brand and build brand equity.The technique uses insights from decision sciences on how brand properties are processed and how memory structures are built, in order to enable objective, fact-based management of these brand assets. It enables decisions about which brand properties are safe to change and which are iconic assets that should be sacred.Identifying and tracking the strength of brand properties(l-r) Phil Barden and David TaylorDavid Taylor commented:“The research shows that brand properties are seen as ‘highly important’; however, only half of the organisations surveyed have a proper process for identifying and tracking the strength of these. As a result, brand properties are often chopped and changed based on personal judgement alone or as a result of changes in staff, such as the arrival of a new marketing or fundraising director. This prevents the creation of valuable memory structure in supporters’ minds which can take several years to build. The study presents major opportunities for charities to create stronger, iconic brands.”Barden added:“This knowledge will enable charities to protect their brand memory structure, avoid common branding pitfalls and save money on misdirected rebrands.”More details on the findings and issues are available in free papers available from the agencies on request:1. brandgym has produced a paper on the practical issues of identifying and amplifying brand properties, ‘The Power of Brand Properties’.2. Decode Marketing has produced a paper with more detail on the scientific background and how to set up an iconic asset management platform to effectively steer these important brand assets, ‘Unlocking the Power of Brand Properties through Neuroscience.’ Howard Lake | 6 October 2014 | News read more

The station has put its losses in equipment damaged or removed at around 100,000 euros.“The fact that the intruders destroyed some equipment on the spot and removed other equipment but left the station’s cash suggests that their aim was to sabotage its activities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This attack is very worrying. It means that a real danger exists for freedom of information in Tunisia.”The police went to the station the next day to gather evidence. The station’s representatives said the video footage of the attack recorded by its surveillance cameras should help the police to identify the assailants and their motives.“The Tunisian authorities should make it a point of honour to arrest the instigators of this act of vandalism in order to finally end the impunity enjoyed by those responsible for all the violence against media and journalists in recent months,” said Reporters Without Borders, which pledges to follow the investigation closely.One of five new TV stations to receive broadcast permits since the revolution, El Hiwar Ettounsi has been repeatedly threatened in recent months on Facebook, on which reference was made to an attack a few days before it took place. It poses a threat to the station’s future and the scale of the damage could have a lasting effect on its operations. Follow the news on Tunisia News RSF_en November 12, 2019 Find out more read more

As of December, the group now predicts starts will total 1.05 million.For the overall economy, forecasters told the Journal they expect gross domestic product (GDP) will grow 2.2 percent in 2014, dialing back their prediction of 2.8 percent growth made last year. While second- and third-quarter reports have looked solid, the country spent much of the year’s first half shaking off a weak first quarter, which saw GDP contract at an annual rate of 2.1 percent.Despite missing on their predictions last year, the panel remains hopeful for 2015, forecasting 1.22 million housing starts and GDP growth of 2.9 percent as the job market continues to recover and wages pick up.

The Government Sponsored Enterprise (GSE) announced on Monday that it had provided $7.8 million in funding for the acquisition of 117 single-family rental (SFR) units by Promise Homes Company. The units are located in the Atlanta, Orlando, and Tallahassee markets.According to a statement issued by Freddie Mac, Promise Homes offers affordable housing to families that choose to live in single-family homes but were unable to buy their home due to financial and credit history. The transaction is in partnership with CBRE, Freddie Mac said.“This transaction represents a true win-win for the families renting these properties and the broader community,” said David Leopold, VP of Targeted Affordable Sales and Investments at Freddie Mac Multifamily. “Promise Homes does more than provide affordable housing to its residents–it brings financial literacy and economic growth in the form of sustainable employment. This is exactly the type of transaction we’re looking for with our single-family rental pilot, and we thank our friends at CBRE for helping to make this transaction happen.”Freddie Mac’s single-family rental pilot was introduced in 2017, and this transaction represents the latest in its $1.3 billion investment limits for the pilot. Of the 117 properties in the transaction, 96 percent qualify as “affordable housing,” based on 80 percent of the area median income. Six percent will be rented to market-rate tenants or tenants with Section 8 vouchers.“This portfolio addition will enhance the lives for more than 100 working middle-class families, both in terms of the quality of homes they live in as well as financial literacy and credit score resources through our partnership with Operation HOPE,” said John Hope Bryant, Founder, Chairman, & CEO of The Promise Homes Company. “The Promise Homes Company has a double bottom-line, and we appreciate the opportunity to work with two leading companies to help the strength of our communities and working or middle-class families.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago read more
