As such, the neighboring houses and shops encroach upon the site rather closely, so much so that from the start the idea to “look out” from the property was abandoned to instead “look inward” was adopted. Since the client-owner had a vast amount of art collection and wished to display such art in the new house, the theme “House like a Museum” became the design generator. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraThe theme, “Go in to go out,” used in the prefabricated housing system “EDDI’s House” designed and built in collaboration with Daiwa House Industry, was once again applied to the design of this house and, as a result, the rectangular silhouette of the house was pushed to the boundary limits of the 776 square meter property in the center of which was placed a 15-meter diameter circular patio. The thrust of the planning was to allow each and every room to face and to have a view of this central garden. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraNear the entrance and up on a mezzanine in a semi-detached fashion is a Japanese Room able to accommodate occasional guests. Next to it and readily accessible from the entrance is the owner’s Private Office. Leading up from the entrance is a sloping gallery-corridor connecting to the Living, Fireplace, Dining, and Kitchen areas. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraAgain, another ramp connects this one-room like space to the elevated Master Bedroom with its private water closet. From this elevated area a staircase leads to the Family/Home Theater space adjacent to the Children’s Bedrooms and Family Bathroom on the second level. On the south of these bedrooms spread a spacious garden terrace overlooking the circular patio below. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraFinish material for the exterior is basically diatomite over exterior insulation, while for the interior it is predominantly Japanese stucco-paint for walls and ceilings and either bamboo laminates or limestone for the floors. Bamboo laminates are used for all built-in and movable furniture as well, the reason being bamboo, in contrast to wood, grows much more rapidly and hence more eco-friendly. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraIn the same vein, much effort has been made to “borrow” from and apply the wisdom of traditional Japanese house design vocabulary such as “Engawa” (peripheral corridor) that fuses or separates as required the inside and the outside, “Tsuboniwa” (tiny patios), “Hisashi” (roof overhangs), “Tsuufuu” (cross ventilation), selected use of evergreens and non-evergreens, roof gardens for extra geothermal insulation—all basically “passive” means of applying natural energy efficiency instead of “forced” mechanical ways expending unnecessary energy.Project gallerySee allShow less2012 ONE Prize Competition: BLIGHT TO MIGHTArticlesYabao Hi-Tech Enterprises Headquarter Park / 10 DesignArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/229967/house-like-a-museum-edward-suzuki-associates Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/229967/house-like-a-museum-edward-suzuki-associates Clipboard Architects: Edward Suzuki Associates Area Area of this architecture project House Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki AssociatesSave this projectSaveHouse Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki Associates House Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki Associates CopyAbout this officeEdward Suzuki AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesKamakura3D ModelingJapanPublished on April 30, 2012Cite: “House Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki Associates” 30 Apr 2012.

With a flag shaped site, bound on every side by close neighbors, the understandable instinct might be to step away from the city, retreat behind walls where privacy is better assured. The family that purchased the site saw instead a chance to be as open as possible, using the small degree of isolation as an opportunity to connect to the metropolis from a slight remove. Although the neighbors are close, the tendency in Tokyo is to reject the city and build closed walls, ironically allowing the family to take the opposite stance and open their home without loss of privacy. In this way the site is not unlike a clearing in the midst of a forest.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe deck and landing for the stairs to the roof are oversized so the family can spread out in every direction during the day. On the ground floor a similar openness defines the plan. The concrete floor extends outwards and becomes a landscape, softened by an abstract form that blurs boundaries – not between inside and out, but between city and home. As megacities go, Tokyo is particularly suitable to this approach. Benign and accepting of individual expression, it affords access to sun, air, and space if the starting point is one of acceptance rather than rejection of the urban condition.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaA small budget required that we built with wood, and as simply as possible. A wooden structure in a disaster prone area normally works against our ambitions, requiring substantial sheer walls or braces to resist earthquakes. To answer this need large X-shaped walls are placed at either end of the home. Acting like buttresses, the structure is set outside the plan without interfering with the desire for openness.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!Floor Plans + SiteSave this picture!© Takumi OtaThe first floor and second floor are each treated as single rooms, with boxes holding bath and toilet working as rough dividers in the open plan. The height of the second floor was set so the family could see out to the river valley from their living room, looking over the roofs of their neighbors in the hilly site. Taking advantage of the 3 meter high ceilings on the first floor, a large long-term storage is hung from the ceiling, freeing up floor space for daily life. The storage defines the master bedroom and is incidentally used to hang a group of large doors that can close off the bath and the bedroom as needed.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaProduct Description. Compressed concrete panels were used as the principal exterior finish and on the interior to cover the wood brace structure as well as the WC on both floors.

Tagged with: Individual giving Research / statistics Howard Lake | 22 September 2015 | News “I’m not sure the results would be the same if we tested adults.”The Trust is inviting parents to test their own children’s reactions “and either gloat about their reaction or sheepishly share their child’s preference at #FiveQuidKids”.[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmdNkrzf0gk[/youtube] If you gave a child £5 to spend on what they wanted, would they spend it on some chocolate for themselves, or donate it to charity? As part of Child Safety Week, the Child Accident Prevention Trust found out.To highlight the fact that accidents are the second biggest cause of death for children in the UK, the charity undertook a social experiment to see if children would choose chocolate or charity.Twenty children aged between 5 and 14 years old were given a £5 note. They were then told they could spend it on whatever they wanted. Not surprisingly they started thinking of all the nice things they could buy. Chocolate, whether as a bar or cake, cropped up quickly for most of them.They were then asked whether they would spend it on themselves or give it to The Child Accident Prevention Trust to help stop accidents from happening to children.Sophie Maunder-Allan, CEO of VCCPme and mother of two boys herself, said:“Our children went from angelic beauties to huffing and puffing divas demanding time to think about it.”Charity beats chocolateAll but one child decided to give the money to charity. Even the girl who didn’t said off-camera that she might share her toys instead.But their good sides won out as all but one child handed over their five pounds to charity – and even she said off camera that perhaps she’d share her toys instead.Maunder-Allan added: Advertisement Five pounds – do children spend it on chocolate or charity? Main image: chocolate bar by MskPhotoLife on Shutterstock.com Sound familiar?You might have seen a similar experiment by Action Against Hunger Spain, in which children were given the choice of keeping all the food offered to them, or sharing it with a child that didn’t receive any food.

Adam Schiff (D-Pasadena) introduced legislation in the House that would establish a bipartisan commission to provide a full accounting of the country’s response to the coronavirus.The commission would conduct a rigorous and comprehensive review of the coronavirus response and make recommendations on how we can be better prepared in the future, and will complement other oversight efforts in Congress and elsewhere.Bipartisan Commissions have been established after other momentous events that led to the loss of lives, including the attacks on Pearl Harbor that led the nation into WWII and the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington DC on Sept. 11, 2001.“Though we are still early in this crisis, over sixteen thousand Americans have died so far,” Schiff said. “It is clear that a comprehensive and authoritative review will be required, not as a political exercise to cast blame, but to learn from our mistakes to prevent history from tragically repeating itself.”Schiff said he has talked with colleagues, former commissioners, and experts, and incorporated a number of their strong recommendations into the legislation.The coronavirus commission will examine U.S. government preparedness in advance of this pandemic, the Federal government’s response to it, and provide recommendations to improve our ability to respond to and recover from future outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics.The legislation is modeled after, and closely mirrors, legislation enacted in 2002 to create the 9/11 Commission in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the United States. As with the 9/11 Commission, the coronavirus commission will also examine state and local governments’ preparedness and response.“The coronavirus showed just how unprepared and slow we were to respond to a major outbreak. And that lack of readiness endangered lives,” said Senator Feinstein. “We weren’t able to ramp up testing, we didn’t have enough safety equipment for doctors and nurses and we lacked any kind of consistent federal guidelines for states and cities. We know this won’t be the last outbreak, so a 9/11 Commission-style panel is necessary to fix these mistakes going forward and apply the lessons from this pandemic to future crises.” Community News Your email address will not be published.
