The house is built right in the middle of typical suburb residential quarters found everywhere in Japan. Surrounded by a mixture of one- and two-storey buildings, the house features a courtyard in the middle of the building to secure privacy and has a simple square outer appearance molded in the shape of the lot it is built. Most windows face the courtyard rather than the outside, creating a private yet brightly sunlit environment. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaFirst, open the lattice door to enter the courtyard, where you will find a garden with trees and a path to the entrance. The designer’s focus here is on the stereoscopic proportion of the courtyard. In order to make the courtyard facing skyward a place where residents can feel as much at home and comfortable as possible, the roof height is minimized to reduce oppressive feeling and to maximize the portion of sky in the viewer’s sight. Save this picture!© Hiroshi Ueda Another focus of the courtyard design is the sense of depth. The courtyard takes a complicated planar form due to walls and glass panels separating indoor and outdoor spaces. Every wall and glass panel facing the courtyard is aligned next to each other in a degree other than horizontal or vertical. As a result, you may experience the sensation that a flow pulling you towards the depth of the courtyard. In the same manner, a gaze on the other side of the house across the courtyard gives you such a sensation of depth that it may feel as if you are looking at a separate house.

Bedrooms and living rooms face a veranda, which also serves as the only access to these rooms. In places like Japan, where four seasons are appreciated and enjoyed throughout the year, the outdoor veranda-cum-corridor may provide the dwellers with pleasant diversion. Actually, this outdoor corridor used to be a very common feature of traditional houses in Japan.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow less’Emerging Realities’ International Student WorkshopArticles’Urban Sponge’ Competition Entry / Gemawang Swaribathoro + Indra Nugraha + Morian Sa…Articles Share Houses Area:  105 m² Area:  105 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Sky Catcher House / acaaSave this projectSaveSky Catcher House / acaa Year:  Japan ArchDaily Projects CopyHouses•Atsugi-shi, Japan “COPY” Year:  Save this picture!© Hiroshi Ueda+ 23 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/289966/sky-catcher-house-acaa Clipboard 2012 Photographs Architects: acaa Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/289966/sky-catcher-house-acaa Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeacaaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAtsugi-shiHousesJapanPublished on November 05, 2012Cite: “Sky Catcher House / acaa” 05 Nov 2012.

House passes bill with amendment to ensure CU presence on CAB

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr CUNA wrote in favor of a successful amendment to the Consumers First Act (H.R. 1500) Wednesday, one that would ensure credit unions would be represented on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Consumer Advisory Board (CAB). Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Mich.) offered the amendment, which passed with a 418-10 vote.“The CFPB’s CAB is an important tool in identifying and assessing consumer financial practices, trends, and products and providing recommendations,” CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle wrote to Stevens.  “However, there is no requirement that representatives of credit unions, community banks, or small businesses be appointed to serve on the board. Currently, there is no credit union representation on the CAB.Thus, we thank you for and support your amendment which would ensure that the CAB has representation from community banks, credit unions, small business owners, and economic growth experts. This amendment will allow all voices and a wider range of perspectives of the financial services industry to be heard,” he added. continue reading »last_img read more
