The Sherman Residence is located on a hillside lot above the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, CA. The unique history of the site provides an exceptional record of the horticultural heritage of the area. Prior to World War II the area was primarily occupied by commercial citrus groves and other agriculture. After the war, much of the valley was subdivided to create residential tracts during the housing boom, but surprisingly the Sherman Residence site remained undeveloped. Because the land had not been previously developed the site still has a large variety of trees and plants: indigenous large oaks and sycamores, “working” plants such as orange and avocado trees, and exotic palms and succulents.Save this picture!© Grant MudfordSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Grant MudfordSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Grant MudfordSituated at the base of a hill, the house bounds a courtyard and swimming pool on three sides. The hillside encloses the fourth side. The residence juxtaposes distinctively private and public faces. A series of board-formed concrete and glass pavilions create a strong sense of enclosure along the private face while being open to the interior of the site. The horseshoe-shaped configuration of the pavilions maximizes views of the extraordinary landscape. Interstitial gallery spaces provide circulation between the pavilions. Glass facades on both the pavilions and the connecting galleries frame the landscape, bringing nature into sharp relief from a variety of positions inside the home. Holding together the entire composition is a low-slung wooden beam roof with deep overhangs.Save this picture!© Grant MudfordProject gallerySee allShow lessWashington D.C.

Company to use virtual reality for housing tours

first_imgMosaic Student Communities, the property management arm of Mosaic Investment Partners, has opened its first virtual reality lounge to facilitate tours of its houses in local neighborhoods for USC students. The company manages properties throughout University Park; and its offices are located on Hoover Street.The use of virtual reality has become increasingly popular among real estate firms, as well as at college campuses across the nation. According to Mosaic, this is the first time that USC students will interact with the technology to tour prospective housing near campus. The VR lounge allows students to tour homes by wearing goggles, navigating through the homes by using handheld remote controls. Once the goggles are on, students will be able to look around and see an exact simulation of the properties. “One of the things that we’ve realized is that actually touring all of the houses is intrusive,” said Troy Dodgion, Mosaic’s director of operations. “People don’t like to have people come in and look at their house all the time during leasing season.” The remote controls are easy to use and allow students to walk up and down stairs and into a variety of rooms in the house, instead of having to attend an in-person tour.“Also, [walk-in tours are] really time consuming — applicants have to come to the Mosaic house first and then we have to drive them around to look at the six or seven houses that they want to see,” Dodgion said. “This way, they’re able to come in here and look at some of the houses to get an idea of what they’re looking for without us bothering the tenants and the incoming residents. They get an opportunity to see a wider range of houses and get to pick one that’s the best suited for them before we actually go out and start looking at the physical houses.” Mosaic paired up with Transported, a company based in Santa Monica that films all of the virtual reality footage. It also uses a virtual reality system called Oculus Rift to create the tours, which Dodgion describes as the “highest-end VR equipment that’s out there,” according to their website So far, Mosaic has applied the technology to around eight of its Victorian-style homes. Not only does it aim to eventually implement virtual reality to tour for its whole housing portfolio, but it is also always looking to acquire new properties for students to rent. The company aims to renovate poorly maintained homes and homes in need of development, and it manages a variety of homes at Cal Poly Pomona and UC Berkeley.Mosaic Student Communities will host a launch party on Nov. 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. to celebrate and reveal its new lounge and services.last_img read more

Snap Counts: Raheem Mostert, Darwin Thompson, Patrick Laird, more potential fantasy breakouts, busts, waiver pickups

first_imgWith the Week 14 waiver wire set to be overloaded with running backs, it only makes sense that our analysis of Week 13 NFL snap counts will be full of running backs, as well. To find the sleepers that can win you fantasy playoff matchups, we’ve specifically broken down five backfields: 49ers, Chiefs, Dolphins, Colts, and Buccaneers. Hopefully, some of our findings can help you spot some sleepers (or busts) and inform your start ’em, sit ’em decisionsOf course, it’s worth noting that injuries played a huge role in a number of these spots. Maybe Raheem Mostert wouldn’t have had as big a day if Matt Breida (ankle) was healthy; Damien (ribs) and Darrel Williams (hamstring) being hurt in Kansas City definitely helped Darwin Thompson; and Kalen Ballage’s leg injury allowed Patrick Laird to seize playing time. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing to be learned, especially because as the season gets later, injuries can linger and players can even be shut down. We’ll still take the stance that Jones is the most talented here. It’s not worth rushing to pick up Barber if he isn’t owned. In reality, you’ll probably maintain more of your sanity if you just avoid playing these guys altogether.(Update: Bruce Arians said Jones sat out due to a pass-blocking error, so this situation could still shift in either direction, it seems.)For snap count reactions for every team, click here. WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerEspecially in the fantasy playoffs, you can plan out your lineup for the next couple weeks and know exactly how much wiggle room you have. If you have an extra bench spot, it can’t harm you to pick up Mostert coming off his 20 carries in the hopes that he somehow lines up for that number in a week or two. If you’ve already planned out your streams, maybe you don’t have room, and that’s not the end of the world.On the other side of these breakouts are players that are more owned, like Tevin Coleman and LeSean McCoy. Owners of those players will want to take note, too, as they decide if they should cut ties with or, at the very least, bench those veteran options.Check out our 32-team breakdown of Week 13 snap counts here.49ers Snap Counts: Raheem Mostert vs. Tevin ColemanIt took a long time for Kyle Shanahan to finally allow one running back to run rampant this season. To add to the surprise in Week 13, it was Raheem Mostert doing the heavy lifting.Normal starter Tevin Coleman didn’t appear to be hurt but was used very little. Mostert carried the ball 20 times while Coleman saw just five carries. Mostert was on the field for 42 offensive plays while Coleman was in for just 10 (with Jeff Wilson Jr. playing five).That’s a wide enough gap to make us think Mostert’s role won’t just disappear (though, to be fair, Coleman’s role basically just disappeared after starter-level usage). The other curveball here is the impending return of Matt Breida (ankle), which would just add another head to what’s already a multi-headed monster.If you’re looking for courses of action to take, you can’t really drop Coleman, but Mostert should be added in basically every league as we see how this shakes out. Another week of this and Mostert will be a fantasy starter to close out the season.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endChiefs Snap Counts: Darwin Thompson vs. LeSean McCoyThompson and McCoy were equal in snaps Sunday, but their snaps weren’t created equally.Thompson rushed 11 times, while McCoy received just five carries in his 24 snaps. It’s another check in the box of the Chiefs seeming to use McCoy in some sort of load management routine down the stretch of the season.Of course, everything here is complicated by injuries and gameflow. Damien Williams (rib) was out for Sunday’s game. Darrel Williams left with a hamstring injury. To add on top of that, it was a blowout, so maybe Kansas City decided to just let Shady chill out on the sideline.Still, though, the rookie Thompson was a fond sleeper of ours in the preseason before McCoy made KC’s backfield much more crowded. Thompson’s worth a speculative add in most leagues in case both Williams are out in Week 14 and beyond.WEEK 14: Waiver pickups | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSDolphins Snap Counts: Patrick Laird a Week 14 sleeperKalen Ballage went down with a non-contact leg injury Sunday, and it looks like the type of thing that will force the Dolphins to sit the underperforming running back. That means Patrick Laird gets the next crack at the job.He saw 43 snaps in total Sunday, far more than fellow rookie Myles Gaskin’s 16. Laird caught five-of-six targets for 43 yards while rushing 10 times for five yards. He also added a touchdown and a two-point conversion. The rushing is going to continue to be difficult behind the Dolphins’ poor offensive line, but the receiving game should be there in similar fashion going forward.The best part about Laird might be the matchups throughout the fantasy playoffs. Miami plays both New York teams before facing the Bengals in Week 16.Are we suggesting Laird should be starting in fantasy leagues in title games in Week 16? Not necessarily, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.Colts Snap Counts: Jordan Wilkins vs. Jonathan WilliamsThe dreaded “hot hand” bit Jonathan Williams’ fantasy owners in the butt Sunday. Although Williams was expected to start and get a heavy share of the workload again, it was Jordan Wilkins leading the way with 32 snaps, followed by Nyheim Hines at 31, and Williams bringing up the rear at 16 snaps played.Wilkins didn’t carry a ton more than Williams (11 to eight.) But Wilkins’ 4.3 yards per carry average was much superior to the 1.8 Williams put up. Wilkins also caught two-of-three targets while Williams caught the only pass that went his way. To add insult to injury, Hines ran for a touchdown on the second of back-to-back goal-to-go carries. It’s hard to know what to make of this going forward. Marlon Mack (hand) could make his return from injury soon, but even if he doesn’t, this will continue to be a committee. If Williams was a waiver wire gem for you, it’s probably worth holding on for one more week to see if things reverse. Wilkins can be picked up, but again, it’s not obvious if his role will continue. Hines, too, can have PPR value, although it’s limited by the number of mouths to feed.And on top of all that, Indianapolis faces Tampa Bay’s dominant run defense in Week 14 and New Orlean’s top run defense in Week 15. Maybe it’s best to stay away entirely. WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPBuccaneers Snap Counts: Peyton Barber vs. Ronald JonesThe Buccaneers’ backfield made it back into the snap counts article by virtue of continuing to be a headache. Barber took back the role that Jones had seized, running 17 times and picking up two rushing touchdowns while Jones carried the rock just six times in Week 13.The snaps weren’t that far off, with Barber playing 30 compared to Jones’ total of 21. Dare Ogunbowale was mixed in there, as he always is, at 23. Jones turning his six carries into eight yards probably didn’t help his cause, but this is truly one of the more unpredictable situations in football.MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderThere’s just no rhyme or reason. Some weeks, it’s Jones in around the goal line, and others, like in Week 13, it’s Barber. Jones showed up with a huge receiving game a couple of weeks ago, but generally the passes go to Ogunbowale. We wish there was a good reason, but there probably wasn’t.last_img read more
