Last week’s budget received a favourable response from the stock market. When I checked, 62 FTSE 100 shares were showing gains by mid-afternoon.Today, I want to look at two FTSE stocks I think offer a good package of dividend income and growth potential. They’re both shares I’d consider buying for my own portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…When cash is king…When times are tough, there’s no substitute for cash in the bank. FTSE 100 housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN) had net cash of £895m at the end of 2020, excluding money owed for land purchases.I think having plenty of surplus cash should give Persimmon’s management the freedom to make the right decisions for long-term growth. When I pair this with the government’s latest measures to support house prices, I’m not surprised Persimmon’s share price closed up 6% on Budget Day last week.Stable house prices at current levels make Persimmon a very profitable business. The group’s 2020 results show the company generated an underlying gross profit margin of 31% on new housing last year. That’s only a slight reduction from 33% in 2019, despite the disruption caused by the pandemic.Although Persimmon’s pre-tax profit fell by 25% to £783m last year, the company ended the year with forward sales of £2.3bn, a 15% increase on 2019. Management expects new home completions to return to 2019 levels in 2022.This FTSE 100 share has become known for its generous dividend in recent years. Last year saw the payout cut to 110p, but Persimmon’s management has committed to return to a 235p annual payout in 2021. That gives a dividend yield of more than 8%.When I buy housebuilder shares, I’m always aware of the risk that the housing market could crash. Lower selling prices could quickly crush Persimmon’s profits. In my view, house prices have been relatively high for a long time now, so I’d say there’s some risk we could be heading for a downturn.However, there’s no sign of any slowdown so far, so this is a stock I’d be happy to own at the moment for its generous income.A FTSE 100 share with growth potential?The second stock I’ve been looking at is FTSE 100 packaging group Mondi (LSE: MNDI). This business benefited from strong demand for e-commerce packaging last year, which helped to offset weaker demand from industrial companies.I believe sustainable packaging will be a growth market for the foreseeable future. Aside from the obvious growth in online retail, I think there’s probably a lot of room for improvement in areas such as replacing plastic with cardboard-based products.Like Persimmon, Mondi generates attractive profit margins and strong cash flows. Although higher raw material costs contributed to a 30% drop in profits last year, Mondi’s earnings still covered the dividend payout twice.My main concern with this FTSE 100 share is its debt levels are relatively high, by the standards I like to use. I’m also aware that profits can be quite variable, due to the impact of changing wood and pulp costs — Mondi’s raw materials.However, no share is free of risk. There’s always something that can go wrong. But Mondi’s stock currently trades on 15 times forecast earnings, with a 3.3% dividend yield. So, I’d be happy to buy at this level for a long-term holding. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

The house is located on a corner site at the bottom of a sloping road in a residential district with some remaining natural elements, in the southeast region of Sapporo City, Hokkaido. The site naturally has a 1.4-meter gap at the ground level, but we chose to keep it untouched at an early stage due to the limited budget. After considering several schemes, we finalized a split level scheme utilizing the 1.4-meter gap, equivalent to 1/2 of the floor height, without much difficulty.Save this picture!© Koji SakaiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Koji SakaiFirstly we placed a two-story box on a site, which is an appropriate volume to accommodate all requirements, with its corner directed towards the lowest point of the site. Then we set a circulation route, which makes a spiral rotating clockwise on the corner site. The spiral elevates itself and enters the box, and all spaces including private room, living room, bathroom etc. are provided along the circulation route, creating the split-level composition. Each split level offers a different viewpoint. Moving along the circulation route, one’s view expands or gets obstructed, and consequently the field of his/her spatial perception expands or gets compressed. Such spatial transformation will trigger changes in density between family members and their community.Save this picture!© Koji SakaiProject gallerySee allShow lessNational Daylight Appreciation DayEventSung Jang Creates Modular Pieces for “This is Not a Duet” Exhibit in New YorkArchitecture News Share “COPY” “COPY” Photographs 2011 Spiral House / Keikichi Yamauchi architects and associates Houses Area: 103 m² Area: 103 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2011 CopyAbout this officeKeikichi Yamauchi architects and associatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSapporoHousesJapanPublished on June 21, 2015Cite: “Spiral House / Keikichi Yamauchi architects and associates” 20 Jun 2015.

The project is a 391 m2 detached house, located in the Xcumpich prefecture where, in the past, there was a henequen plantation and, as the city grew, it became a residential area. The area is of low density and is characterized by its urban context with trees with large foliage and the park of the town.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe people of this area, usually in the afternoon sit under the trees shadows to greet their neighbors, children play in the streets and neighborhood meetings are continually held at the corners of the block, so to generate more security, more coexistence and more city, we do not require the use of fences; The solutions come through the intelligent use of levels and low vegetation, the house enjoys the external context and living with it, while at the same time creating privacy; and the public external context, enjoys the interior vegetation of the land without disturbing the users.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Sections 1 – CSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe protagonist of the project is an 80-year-old “Pich” tree. The house is design around the tree, through the use of an “L” scheme, geometrizing the land, an opening gesture is achieved towards the tree. In this way, all the interior spaces of the house have a view to it, with the exception of the main bedroom, which has an opening to an exclusive patio.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Diagram – Generating CitySave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe house is placed at the end of the site to donate a green space to the city and neighbors can continue to enjoy the shadows and trees that are in the field. People still enjoy the view of the tree as is the protagonist of the project when passing through the site, since the design of the house does not privatize, but rather shares. The project starts from a rotated axis to generate the access of the house, framing the “Pich” and vestibulating the public space of the private spaces of the house. Through this axis two auctions are generated both when entering, and when leaving the house. This architecture achieves that the main protagonist of the project is the vegetation and that altogether it blends perfectly with the context, both urban and social.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Most Innovative Parking Structures From Around the WorldArchitecture NewsOpinion: The Chilean Pavilion Offers the 2018 Venice Biennale’s Most Powerful Archit…Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895295/the-tree-house-as-arquitectura Clipboard 2017 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAS ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMeridaMexicoPublished on June 24, 2018Cite: “The Tree House / AS Arquitectura” [Casa del Árbol / AS Arquitectura] 24 Jun 2018.
