A minimalist house with a curved exterior that provides privacy, security, natural light and air circulation, and plenty of space for children to play.
Osaka-based architect Naoko Horibe was given a tall order when she set out to design this residence in Naruto-Shi, Tokushima, Japan. First, the property is located in an area that tends to flood during heavy rains. Second, the clients wanted their new home to provide security and privacy, while at the same time having enough space for their children. And last, but not least, they asked for the house to have good natural light and air circulation throughout.
To work around the potential flooding situation, the foundation and floor were built fairly high. The house itself is designed such that the rooms are built around a central courtyard. The rooms loop together and create a path for the kids to run around.
The courtyard helps bring light into the interior, helping to achieve one of the clients’ requests. It also helps with air circulation.
I just finished the 20 Holiday Ecommerce questions teams must answer YES to before hitting the beach. 4Q is a critical time for #startups too. More deals get done between September and June than during the summer when the VC sharks are swimming with the real sharks.
Web traffic goes way up in the fourth quarter too improving any startups' chances for fame, glory and enough money to keep the wolf at bay for another month. Being part of a startup is like playing baseball for the Durham Bulls.
Every day you learn something and that is great, but you can't keep your eye off the prize - moving up to The Show. Startups need to realize their online CONTENT is how people will come to know and support them. Lousy content = no fame and glory.
Great content only helps startups get in the ROOM. If your startup can answer YES to all 22 of these questions then two things are true. I didn't make the questions near hard enough and chances for your team to achieve your goals just went WAY UP.

This unique contemporary house by Wallflower Architecture + Design takes the form of a raised reinforced concrete tube whose open ends are oriented in a north-south direction, with the prevailing breezes.
All rooms have walls that side either east or west, and front north and south. The tubular structure resists east west heat gain thanks to the the reinforced concrete, but encourages passive cooling through the open north south axis, whose facades are treated with timber screens that act as privacy filters for the bedrooms and the first layer of solar heat reduction. The timber fins can also be angled to catch a breeze or increase privacy when needed. Other design considerations included the context and proximity of neighboring homes, the daily sun path and the prevailing winds.
