Housing: reconsidering inside the box

In 2014 the bed overtook the couch as the most secondhand item of furniture in British houses. This shift may be something to do with shrinking living space, but it mainly is the outcome of a behavioral modification indicated by other well-I-never stats that Britons now invest more time looking at screens than sleeping which 80% of Smartphone users look at their devices within 15 minutes of awakening.

I get these nuggets from the trio in charge of the British pavilion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, Jack Self, Shumi Bose and Finn Williams, who state they want to attend to Britain’s anxious relationship to the idea of home. Aged 29, 32 and 33 respectively, and chosen through an open require entries by the British Council, they are the youngest ever to get this honor and appear figured out to use the stage of the world’s greatest architectural exhibition making an impact.

Venezuelan Supreme Court Blocks Housing Privatization Law

Venezuela’s Supreme Court blocked a controversial law Friday that would have granted specific homeowners title deeds to public real estate constructed under the Great Venezuelan Housing Mission (GMVV). Feel free to read more on .

Since the program s establishing in 2011, the Bolivarian government has created over 1.2 million houses generally for low income Venezuelans affected by the dire real estate scarcity in the country’s overcrowded cities, which are the home of 90% of the population.

Currently, locals of the GMVV possess a Deed of Use file that gives them the right to the houses for life, however authorizes the sale of the houses just under special scenarios and not on the personal market.

Real estate company cuts "too ruthless" state personnel whose jobs are affected by customer support restructure

WORKERS whose jobs are impacted by a housing company’s choice to reorganize its client service department state the cuts to staffing have been too harsh.

Personnel at the Home Group, which supplies real estate to occupants throughout the area, from Northumberland to south Durham and east Durham to Teesside, were informed in February that the restructuring would minimize frontline staff from 68 to 42.

Under the strategies, rather than tenants getting in touch with housing officers directly, they would call a call centre in Newcastle, which would designate visits to policeman’s.
