This two bedroom, one bath home—built for two public school teachers on a hillside overlooking Kumamoto, Japan—is planned to become fully energy self-sufficient once all designed systems are phased in. The construction budget of US$154,000—an extremely modest budget by local Kumamoto standards—required a close collaboration of the architects and builder to achieve a high-quality, off-site fabricated timber-frame construction meeting high sustainability standards.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Mojave Series Advanced Thermal Entrance SystemRather than eliminating green technology to remain within budget, the 1100 square foot home was planned for a phased integration of systems, budgeted to be completed with the couple’s current income without increased loans over the coming five years. Save this picture!All essential components of the sustainable design strategy are fully implemented in the original construction, including natural, renewable, healthy materials; optimized solar shading, day lighting, and chimney-effect natural ventilation; solar hot water heating; high-efficiency hydronic heating made ready for future geothermal ground loop and solar thermal roof panels; water catchment roof system planned for a future green roof; and efficiently sized spaces and gardens conducive to simple, indoor-outdoor living with minimal ongoing maintenance and resource investment.Save this picture!The house is sited on a terraced, south-facing slope in a dense housing neighborhood, overlooking orange groves and a spectacular view of Kumamoto Castle and surrounding hills. The building is sited for maximum views and passive solar heating of the massive concrete floor slabs serving as thermal ballast, and with opening walls facing the prevailing summer winds. Save this picture!The north face of the home has a steeply pitched roof section oriented for photovoltaic panels facing south, and high, operable clerestory windows facing north and upslope, creating optimized day lighting without summer heat gain, and creating a chimney-effect natural ventilation draft drawing air through the home, and exhausting the kitchen, bath and sleeping spaces with cooling updrafts.

For the local people, they seem not worry about the vanishing of past experience or the relationship between daily life and memory. They also pay little attention to the public spaces outside buildings by the street, and to what the relationship is between public and private. “Isolation”, this is also happening on the building scale.Save this picture!© Zhi ChengSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!Interior. Image © Zhi ChengThis house is about 30 square meters, and sandwiched between 5 nearby houses. Most of the exterior walls become interior walls in between the different houses. The only door and window openings are on the south wall, where there is hardly any light or fresh air in the room. The place is isolated from outside world, this condition is bad especially for a such a tiny space.Save this picture!Interior.

Before the renovation, we can hardly tell that this is a yard and not a pathway.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramThis 30 meter site with a small “yard” will be occupied by a young couple and their 6 year old boy.In order to respond to the “Isolation”, a series of independent and easy to build units were introduced and cooperate with the original building system. They construct a gradation between public and private, outside and inside, build a path for light, wind, events and people’s movement. Also, the cooperation between new elements and original building structures establish the connection between past and present.Save this picture!© Zhi ChengThe first building unit is the porch, with a solar roof in the yard. The position of room door moved correspondingly. Places were created on the path where people would be going home from the outer street. An open lobby for changing clothes, a porch facing the tree for outside events in good weather. A transition space between house and yard.Save this picture!PlanThe second building unit is the double-slope roof gallery. It can also be defined as the enlarged building facade. First, it maximize the lighting area. Beside it the chimney and air system are also introduced on the gallary roof. This prevents unexpected damage to the original structure and roof system.Save this picture!© Zhi ChengThe most importantly, The new spaces created are the two long tables constructed based on the window from the outside to inside. When the window is opened, people might sitting around the table in good weather, events might happen here. Since there is limited area in the room, the table places some daily events out in the yard.Save this picture!© Zhi ChengThe third building unit is children room. It includes small flats on second floor, a ladder, and a lighting roof.

At the same time, the differences between new and old are obvious.

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Thismonth sees the annual pilgrimage to Harrogate of training and HR professionals.Patrick McCurry reports on what they might find there How to cope with change is one of the key themes of this year’s CIPDconference and exhibition in Harrogate – and that applies equally to trainersas to other HR specialists. The theme of change is kicked off with the opening keynote address on 23October, entitled Thinking Like a Revolutionary. In this, Gary Hamel, visitingprofessor at the London Business School, argues that organisations need toconstantly re-invent themselves to respond to changing circumstances. Angela Baron, CIPD adviser on organisation and development, agrees:”Companies are having to deal with ever-more rapid change, in areas suchas technology, customer expectations and their marketplace.” Baron, who chairs a seminar on Developing Your People Strategy on 23 October,says this environment of change means it is even more crucial for trainers toalign their programmes with the company’s business strategy. “Manycompanies are still just sending staff on courses but neglecting other forms oftraining, such as coaching and mentoring,” she adds. Business strategy One of the speakers at the Developing Your People seminar is Craig McCoy,group HR director at BSkyB, who will be presenting a case study of thecompany’s attempt to align people management strategy with business strategy. One of the initiatives McCoy will be highlighting is BSkyB’s ‘Living theVision’ training scheme for its 4,500 call centre staff in Scotland. He says: “We have done a lot of work on the branding of BSkyB in thelast couple of years and the Living the Vision programme is an attempt to marrythe behaviours and competencies of staff with the values of that externalbranding.” Work on the branding of BSkyB led to the development of new corecompetencies for staff, such as using initiative and being creative, saysMcCoy. All call centre staff will be going through a three-day off-sitetraining course focusing on the company’s vision and values. The programme willbe based around a TV and film theme. “It is about winning staff’s hearts and minds,” says McCoy, addingthat it is extremely rare for a company to put call centre staff through suchan ambitious training course. “Usually, such a big programme would befocused purely on technical training but this is very different,” he says.For Paul Turner, group HR business director at the University for LloydsTSB, the theme of change is reflected in the challenge facing trainers over howto put together training programmes. Turner, who chairs a seminar called Developing Tomorrow’s Managers on 24October, says: “Companies know they are living in an increasinglyglobalised and competitive world and that to recruit and retain they needeffective management development schemes in place.” He says trainers are now living in the ‘post-e world’. “E-learning wasbeing presented as the solution a few years ago, but now people realise thingsaren’t that simple and the challenge is how to put together layered training,with different components such as e-learning, coaching and mentoring, andface-to-face training.” There is no single correct approach, says Turner: “Every organisationneeds to weigh up its own needs and culture when deciding on the components ofits training strategy.” But he does see a growing role for coaching and mentoring in management development:”Where you can get managers to be coached by their seniors, that’s a veryeffective way of developing staff.” The use of coaching is also highlighted by Michael Carroll, a visitingindustrial professor at Bristol University. Carroll, who will be presenting afringe seminar entitled It’s a guy thing – how men learn, has been involved intraining consultants at management consultancy RightCoutts. “They are mostly men and running the scheme made me think a lot abouthow men learn compared with women,” says Carroll. One of the striking things, says Carroll, is that men will ‘run a mile’ fromany suggestion of counselling, but if you present it in a coaching form, theywill be more receptive. “Men associate coaching with sports and so are happier to takepart,” he says. The problem, he adds, is that while men are very strong onproblem solving, they are often poor people managers. “As you go up the hierarchies in most organisations you find a higherproportion of men, but unfortunately many of these executives are poor atmanaging relationships in the workplace.” He adds that women, on the otherhand, are better at team working and handling relationships. Carroll will be outlining his approach to moving men from the moretheoretical, problem-solving approach to learning to one based on engagingemotions and managing workplace relationships effectively. In another fringe seminar Seamus Rodgers, a principal at consultants EmpowerGroup, will describe the leadership development programme being run for theAdult Learning Inspectorate (ALI), using the action learning approach totraining. “They wanted an innovative approach to management development ratherthan traditional training, so we proposed action learning,” says Rodgers. Staff are divided in to teams of 10, who meet once a month. Much of thelearning is done in virtual teams. Among the challenges was how to run a major training programme for staffthat are dispersed geographically. “All the inspectors work from home up and down the country, so therehas been a lot of e-learning involved, with the ALI putting materials on itsintranet for home-based inspectors and other staff to access.” Show facts– The CIPD annual conference and exhibition is held atHarrogate International Centre from Wednesday 23 October to Friday 25 October – Opening times for the exhibition, which is free, are10.30-18.15 on 23 October, 9.30-18.00 on 24 October and 9.30-15.00 on 25October.– There are more than 300 exhibitors, plus free fringe eventsat the exhibition.
