Solar-powered Ring House heals a scarred hilltop landscape in Greece

Solar-powered Ring House heals a scarred hilltop landscape in Greece | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
On the southern coast of Crete, Greek architectural firm decaARCHITECTURE has turned a commission for a modern residence into an opportunity for landscape preservation. Named the Ring House for its rounded shape, the house was created to follow the existing topography and looks like an extension of its hilltop location. The site had been scarred by environmentally insensitive infrastructural development but has now recovered its original morphology and has been replanted with native flora.


Al Cannistra's insight:

we may not have a "sea view" but a home like this in Hill Country would offer incredible views...  would you like to live in a home like this?

The Hottest Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2018 - The Open Door

The Hottest Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2018 - The Open Door | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
5. San Antonio, TX
San Antonio is known for its River Walk, an oasis of cypress-lined paved paths and lush landscapes where locals and visitors alike go to relax. But the city is bustling, too. In 2017, job growth rose 2.2 percent, and the national homeownership rate increased significantly for the first time in more than 10 years. In fact, homeowners make up two-thirds of the city’s population, at 65 percent. San Antonio’s top employers are a mix of military, city, and school districts, as well as private and public businesses, making this 300-year-old city flush with new job opportunities. These trends are expected to continue into 2018, with homeownership outpacing renting for the indefinite future.
