Rain Shelter House, Japan by y+M | via

From the architect: Location of the house is Yonago-city Sanin area at the foot of Mt. Daisen which has national park. This area has much rain throughout the year. In winter it blows a chill northwest wind and it snows a lot. The site is on a hill. So the scenery is wonderful but it gets the strong afternoon sunlight.

We planned the house there where client family (married couple, their two children and wife’s mother who newly live together) lives.

We planned the house as divided/parted one. That architecture makes some benefits for the client such as keeping adequate privacy among the family. And client can sleep without any concern for disturbing noise of the other family members after his/her night shift work.

We designed the gabled folded-plate big roof which reaches ground at its one side on each “divided house.” The roof keeps off rain throughout the year, chill northwest wind and snow in winter and strong afternoon sunlight in summer. And the roof can keep the client’s privacy from neighbor houses.

In addition, natural sunlight comes in through the gap between the roof and “divided houses.” So that inside the house is bright enough in daytime without lightings.

ÓCEO

Diseño: Pedro Arturo Ruiz García, UANL.

 

“Asiento que se origina en la tierra y lo natural como expresión del cambio progresivo y continuo del ser humano. Este asiento inspirado en la naturaleza humana, refleja nuestra manera estructurada y sistemática de ser, así como nuestros instintos y nuestra espontaneidad.

 

Sus volúmenes son el resultado de un juego de elipses modulares, que evolucionan y se mueven verticalmente. Óceo respeta el espacio sin minimizarlo, al contrario, se funde en él, dejándonos ver a través de sí”

I just remembered last year when I was leaving the house for my first day of fall classes. I got hit on by the mailman. It was a really bizarre day. And I’m pretty sure that first event set the mood for the rest of that school year.

I was kind of hoping something weird would happen on my way to class today, but no luck.

I feel like it’s a really unhealthy thing….the fact that tumblr seems like the only socially acceptable place to complain about anything and everything. I don’t want to get caught up in that. 

Hoping for all the positive vibes starting tomorrow. It’s the first day of my senior year. I need to make it a good one.
