michael jhon

An amazing modernist Grand Designs curved glass home that gave its creator five heart bypasses has went up for sale for £3.4million.

The spectacular glass villa, known as ‘The Curve’, is nestled north of Brighton and boasts breathtaking views across the East Sussex countryside thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows throughout its five bedrooms. 

The Curve is a rare find on the UK property market, costing owner Barry Surtees £1.8million to build back in 2007, but he put it up for sale three years later to try and recoup some of the costs.

HONG KONG/FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Chinese firms Joyoung 002242.SZ and Gree Electric 000651.SZ are among those eyeing the domestic appliances business of Dutch conglomerate Philips’ PHG.AS in a deal worth up to 3 billion euros (2.77 billion pounds), people with knowledge of the matter said.

Philips’ advisers have sent out teasers to potential buyers, said two of the people, adding the bidding process will start later this year.

Chinese white goods producers Haier 1169.HK600690.SS and Midea 000333.SZ have also shown interest in the business, the people told Reuters, adding some of them are working with investment banks on a potential bid. 

Their interest comes even as Chinese white goods companies have faced heightened regulatory scrutiny of their acquisitions in Western nations.

Bring in the experts: It’s time to secure your home network – Entertainment & Life – telegram.com

michael jhon

Not all that long ago, managing your home network’s security didn’t involve much more than installing an antivirus program on your PC. If only it were still so simple.

It’s no longer just about protecting the computer on which you may be working from home and the laptops the kids may be using as online school starts. Odds are good you’ve got a few other internet-connected devices around the house — phones, tablets, game consoles, maybe a “smart” TV or thermostat or refrigerator or light bulb or kid’s toy or security camera or video-streaming gadget or voice-activated digital valet.

 

The average U.S. home now has 11 such devices, according to Deloitte, many of which are vulnerable to hacking. If you don’t want cyber cat burglars traipsing across them, potentially spreading malware or ransomware as they go, you’ll want to secure your entire home network.

 

What are the risks?

Midcentury Modern Home In Glencoe Snapped Up Soon After Price Cut

michael jhon

GLENCOE, IL — A midcentury modern home in Glencoe designed by a notable local architect sold last week for $750,000. Its closing price was more than $50,000 above its most recent asking price and nearly $100,000 more than its current owners paid for it five years ago.

The four-bedroom, 2,230-square-foot ranch-style house is located on a pair of parcels comprising 0.45 acres on the corner of Dundee Road and Grove Street. It also includes a finished lower level.

Richard Barancik designed the 1953-built home for a personal friend, according to its listing. He had just gotten out of the military — where he served in the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program as one of so-called “monuments men” — when he founded his architectural firm in 1950 with his former design instructor at the University of Illinois.

The recently sold home on Dundee Road was one of only a

Cape Cod House Hunt: Truro home boasts stunning details, serene setting – News – capecodtimes.com

michael jhon

TRURO — For privacy and for getting away from it all, this woodsy Truro setting can’t be beat. Marsh Lane is a dead-end dirt road, and the driveway brings you down a small hill. It’s almost surprising to see such a contemporary home here — the entire lot is surrounded by woods that make up the Little Pamet conservation area. The yard is green and manicured all around, with the backyard boasting plenty of space and a built-in fire pit.

This home is practically brand-new, built in 2014, and no detail has been forgotten, right down to the octagon-shaped windows on each side of the front door. The floor plan is entirely open concept and feels much larger inside than it seems from the outside, with high ceilings, dark-stained hardwood floors and oversized windows giving that solid, contemporary feel that’s so sought after. It has a nice flow: living room

Samsung looks at new opportunities amid surge in demand for home appliances

michael jhon

From sanitising closets to customisable fridges, the coronavirus pandemic has fanned demand for home appliances – so much so that Samsung Electronics Co Ltd is adding warehouses and bringing popular products to more markets. In particular, consumers have been willing to splurge on products that make their homes cleaner.

In Brazil and other emerging economies, households which once relied on maids are now investing in dishwashers and robot vacuum cleaners, while Samsung says its overseas sales of air purifiers jumped more than five times in January-July compared to the same period last year. Samsung’s AirDresser, a closet that steam cleans clothes and kills bacteria, has seen a spike in sales with British furniture firm Lux Group ordering 1,000 earlier this year. Big fridges have also climbed in popularity as people cooking more often at home seek more freezer space.

Like an Offering to Vulcan, This Home Honors the Ancient Volcano That Shaped Its Design

michael jhon

We often see homes inspired by nature. It could be anything from the ocean to the mountains that influences an architect’s design decisions. We’ve seen desert hues and winter whites, boulders that cut right into a wall or even a tree growing through the middle of a house. But this home precariously positioned on a steep slope may be the first we’ve seen that drew its influence from the stages of a volcanic eruption. Take a peek at Lookout House — a home that goes from glowing orange magma to cooled-down basalt.

The result of a collaboration between architectural firm Faulkner Architects and Concept Lighting Lab, Lookout House was fully informed by the land. Everything from the slope of the ground to the fact that it sits at the base of a dormant volcano had influence on the design process.  Located in Truckee, California, this house is like an
