A Japanese House Merges the Indoors with the Outdoors

A Japanese House Merges the Indoors with the Outdoors | Good links | Scoop.it

Japanese architect Makoto Tanijiri of Suppose Design Office designed a residential home that merges the indoors with the outdoors. 

‘House in Takaya’ located in Hiroshima, Japan, features a polished modern exterior, but incorporates the charming traditional “doma” earthen floor in its interiors. Throughout the entire house, the “doma” acts as a hallway. 
Besides being eco-friendly, it also has benefits as it keeps the home cool in summer, and warm in winter—and adds richness to the home’s interior...

Besides earth floors, thermal heat pumps in the ground can reduce heating and cooling costs by circulating liquids into the ground, which has stable temperature beyond 3 to 4 feet below the surface.  It would be a cheap form of decentralized energy since the earth is like a big battery.

In this article explains the new arts being brought into architecture making more modern houses.  Japan is diverting from its old traditionally based home which is a bad and a good thing. The bad outcome of modernizing their homes is it loses some of its culture which plays a huge role in how china works today. Although changing the way Japan's houses are constructed to give a more modern feel opens up Japans eyes with a new view of the rest of the world instead of being isolated behind it's walls.
