Vertical House Raises Sustainable Seattle Living to New Heights. A successful urban house plan is about a smart use of space - however limited it may be. Thus, the forward thinking designers and builders at First Lamp Architecture and Construction transformed this small square plot of Seattle land into a stunning vertical house that raises dense city living to new heights - literally. When you can't built out, you built up. Measuring just 25 ft. wide, this narrow lot house design offers bright, airy interiors, topped by a steeply pitched roof that makes it a literal peak in this residential neighborhood. Add to this a cool, edgy style and eco elements, and this sustainable house is smart on so many different levels. Check it out. This long and lean home is dubbed Level House, inspired by Archimedes who famously said, "Give me a place to stand and I shall move the Earth with a lever." Thinking vertically, the designers created three storeys with two separate apartments, From the architects, " Due to the slender proportion of the lot, the units are arranged in a front-to-back configuration relative to the street. The street-facing, one-bedroom unit is 840 sq. ft., and the east-facing, three-bedroom unit is 1,440 sq. ft." By using a mix of materials, the architects achieved a contemporary style home perfectly suited to the city. Though space is at a premium, this urban house design manages to incorporate some outdoor living space on every level - a rarity. Interiors are warm and welcoming - not pretentious by any means. This livable interior balances a cool aesthetic with practical design. We love this small but sweet eating area, featuring an artfully halved rustic wood dining table "emerging" out of the wall. Less really is more, especially in this small space where this table seats five comfortably - what more to you need? But, if you do need more, here's a great casual nook complete with a round patio-style table and wire chairs, bringing an alfresco feel indoors, complemented by the wall-to-wall window and the exposed concrete lower wall. The window overlooking the interior "patio" also opens to a private outside patio area. The living room also echoes this modern mix of urban and rustic, with a concrete floor and a wood coffee table that puts simplicity in the spotlight. A giant sliding glass wall opens to the garden outside. This linear kitchen offers storage space, prep areas and even a window against the rear wall - granted, it eats up a bit of the storage area, but is surely a welcome addition and unheard of in apartment-style homes like this one. The wood stairs are as much an aesthetic element as a functional one. The slatted wall allows light to filter through to the other side. and It's all in the details... This spa inspired bathroom may be small, but appears larger thanks to the glass shower enclosure and the massive mirror, which visually doubles the space light. We love this textures wall in the shower, layered with a contemporary white panel complete with a storage nook cut into it. The rustic wood stool is a great shower seat, and provides extra storage for towels when not in use. Large picture windows in the bedroom are a dreamy addition - one frosted, for privacy. This cool house offers much more living spaces than meets the eye - this 5-Star Built-Green sustainable house includes ductless mini-split heating and air conditioning, a tankless hot water system, LED Lighting throughout, strand woven bamboo, formaldehyde-free BIBS insulation, high-efficiency windows and non-VOC paints and finishes.

William Yudchitz and his son Daniel had already built one modern cabin on their land in far north Wisconsin, but it cost close to $100,000 and they wanted to prove it was possible to build a well-designed tiny home on a budget. Using salvaged material and their own labor- they worked weekends for about a year-, the two architect/builders built the 9-foot-by-12-foot structure for about $10,000. Eschewing a full-perimeter foundation for eight concrete piers and screw jacks saved not only money, but left a smaller imprint on the surrounding nature and allows the family to adjust the settings as the home settles. The facilities are quite basic (e.g. a rainwater shower, a composting toilet and an outdoor kitchen), but most of the furniture transforms a Murphy bed built from a $300 kit (with hydraulics), a kinetic bathroom that enlarges for use, a fold-down dining table and collapsible chairs hung “Shaker-style”. There are beds both on the ground floor and in the nine-by-five-foot sleeping loft. There’s a roof deck fitted with a telescope for viewing the surrounding forest and Lake Superior. The black metal matches the surrounding tree trunks and the 12-foot-high, white-oak rainscreen doors close the place shut when not in use. The Yudchitzes believe their design could be copied by anyone. They’re not finish carpenters and the only skill tool they used was a miter box.

By 2050, the world will need to feed an additional 2.5 billion people living in cities. Yet as the demand for food rises, the amount of land available for agriculture in developed countries is expected to decline. In Japan, at the Fujitsu factory of Aizu-Wakamatsu which still manufactures semiconductor chips for computers, a different project is underway which may offer a solution to this problem. The company has converted an unused part of the factory into a farm to grow food - and more specifically, to grow lettuce. Fujitsu has focused on growing a low-potassium variety, which is sold to people with kidney problems who cannot process the mineral properly. Join Rachel Mealey in Japan's Fukushima Prefecture to visit the sun-free and soil-free urban farms of the future.

This is a project I did last summer. I turned my grey, boring house into a lovely Tudor style cottage. I used self-made silicone texture skins and ready-made wall plaster to make beams. Then painted everything with special silicone concrete paint. The house is waterproof and the paint gets washed every time it rains.

Brian Schulz wanted to see "how small of a house I could make feel big". Inspired by the traditional Japanese minka homes that rely on local materials and steeply sloped roofs to create affordable, open structures, Schulz created a home using materials salvaged or sourced from within 10 miles of his home. The result is a 14-by-16-foot home iin tune with its surroundings that cost only 11,000 dollars - mostly for concrete, shakes and insulation-, along with about a year and half of Schulz's spare time. Much of the wood Schulz collected from the bay while kayaking (he teaches traditional wood kayak-building for a living) and then he milled it himself on-site. Corner posts were blowdown trees from a friend's forest. Kitchen counters were milled from a fallen tree he'd held onto for 8 years. Stair railing is alder poles cut from beside the house. The 3 tables in the home were cut from cedar found on the beach and constructed in 2 hours. He laid flooring using low-grade reject fir, created trim using miscellaneous scrapwood and bought all the home's windows for $40 from the local dump (the french doors came from craigslist).

Watch the next episode about San Francisco becoming a zero waste city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3OA1s8-SI&list=UUJsSEDFFnMFvW9JWU6XUn0Q As urban populations continue to rise, innovators are looking beyond traditional farming as a way to feed everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources. Vertical farming is one solution that's been implemented around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LED lights that expose plants to only certain types of spectrum. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system. And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.

Inheritance taxes on land in Japan means plots often get smaller as they are passed on. This “divide and sell” phenomenon in Tokyo translates into some very tiny home sites. When architects Masahiro and Mao Harada were tasked with creating a home on a lot only 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide at its narrowest point, they chose to interpret small as “near” and use the small scale to their advantage. On the narrowest portion of the lot, along the street, they created a “gatehouse”: used as both an entryway and offices for the clients. The lower level is a gallery for the wife’s art, which is mostly, appropriately, very tiny objects. The second floor, accessible only by a small, wooden ladder, houses the husband’s office with walls lined with books and movies (he directs commercial). Everything in the Gatehouse is within touching distance, and this is important, and a positive thing. Masahiro calls this type of design “peach skin”. “The nearness between the materials and my eye make clear the very small grains, like a peach skin, so the resolution is richer. When you see big things from a distance you can miss details.” Behind the Gatehouse, the lot opens up a bit to accommodate the rest of the home. To comply with building codes limiting home height, the Haradas chose to build the home a few feet underground. Again, they chose to see this as an advantage, allowing for a partly submerged bedroom and bathroom, that allow one to feel “like an animal” while having a bath in the ground or “like an insect” when lying on the bed, at eye level with the plants. After the small, intimate room downstairs the completely open, and high-ceilinged, upstairs feels large. Here one wall is dedicated to a kitchen (partly camouflaged behind tan doors and cabinets) and the other to a full-wall bookshelf which is also structural. Masahiro explains the benefits of using vertical shelf supports that are narrow and very close to each other: the material is cheap; it can be brought in by hand; and it can be created without heavy equipment and instead, by skilled craftspeople. For the interior finish on both the walls and the floors, they used MDF (medium-density fiberboard) both because it is very affordable, but also because it resembles the paper walls in traditional Japanese homes. “Here we use paper and wooden materials and everything can return to the earth, so the time scale is near, or small,” explains Masahiro. “We are always thinking about scale. Scale isn’t just big or small. Scale is also time. This building has a permanent quality, but it also feels ephemeral. This house lives with people, and dies with people, and that’s a good thing.” Mount Fuji Architects: http://fuji-studio.jp/ Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/tokyos-impermanent-skinny-house-made-to-age-well-with-owners/

This house is known as Tree Top Residence. It is a residential project designed by Belzberg Architects in 2015. It is located in Los Angeles, California, USA. “The Tree Top Residence celebrates the site’s complex landscape, merging with it seamlessly and emerging from it atop the canopy of trees that surround it. Built along a natural ridgeline, the long and narrow plan of the three-story house mimics and inverts the angles of the site’s topography, creating dynamic vertical and horizontal relationships. Vertically, an eccentrically-helical stair functions as a primary organizing element and a sculptural gesture upon entry into the house. On the ground floor, it acts as a threshold into the open plan; on the floor above, it separates the master suite and children’s quarter, while providing a light well to the basement. Horizontally, walls are used sparingly in favor of fluidly connected spaces. Movement and views between dining areas, kitchen, play and gathering spaces are uninterrupted, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors blend the interior with the outside. Hidden from the street, the residence is insulated from its neighbors, but open to its site. Canted limestone louvers, and dense planting on the north facade shield the interior from the closest adjacency. Conversely, the rest of the building opens to the site with floor-to-ceiling glazing, relying on both the house’s generous distance from the property line, and the densely wooded valley below to create a natural screen. The design culminates in the master bedroom, which features full-height sliding doors at its cantilevered corner. The orchestration of this view, overlooking a dense canopy of trees, embodies the intent to offer respite from the city below.” ============================================ Please other related video about home and interior design : Hi Tech Contemporary House Design with Amazing Highly Detailed and Technical in its Construction == https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a98kf2DOjVw Contemporary House Design Created with Light Weight Brick Material and Feel of Nature == https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omnq6xnvR9s Contemporary Home Design With Unique Combination Facade Materials == https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2o_jwczy_9w ============================================== The admin of this channel is not the owner of the material inside the video.

By the time the games began not only did Tokyo look brand new but so did it’s population, which had grown exponentially to 10 million people. Currently that number, depending on what area you classify as Tokyo, sits at around 37 million. And despite its impeccable mass transit system, numerous parks and safety, the metropolis poses similar challenges that all city dwellers face: the issue of space. For several years now the trend among architects has been to build residential homes higher, taking advantage of the air above us. But these designer homes tend to come with a hefty price tag. Now, MUJI, Japan’s minimalist stationary and furniture company, wants to give more people space with their “Vertical House.” More About Tiny Houses Check These Youtube Channels Kirsten Dirksen https://www.youtube.com/user/kirstendirksen Gabriella Morrison https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt7lp-qYRF2fpBcw96SN96g Living Big In A Tiny House https://www.youtube.com/user/livingbigtinyhouse Square Inch https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1lTdH8FXMaexiX-IvsnSZw/videos

Platinum House is a residence in Tokyo, Japan designed by Atelier Spinoza. The narrow shape of the lot meant they needed to design up, but the interior doesn’t just showcase that main goal: maximizing vertical space. The architects were able to achieve an interior that feels spacious by letting natural light flood every single room of the three-story building. There’s not a single part of the home that feels dark or closed off. In fact it doesn’t even feel horizontally narrow. The first floor abuts a small triangular courtyard and light comes in the floor to ceiling window and glass patio door. And, though most of the courtyard is covered by the second floor deck — the open grating lets light cascade in nonetheless. On the second floor, the floor-to-ceiling patio door and a skylight on one side both allow light to bound in. The central staircase is open so there no hallway walls close off the light. (Only simple white handrails mirror the geometry of the split floor layout.) And, the wood ceilings and interior windows make it seem as spacious and wondrous to look up as it is to look down.

www.protradecraft.com | SUBSCRIBE please One of those "If I help, will it save me money?" jobs. But not in a bad way. Just outside of Missoula, Montana is a trout creek that offers blue-ribbon fishing. I’m not going to say which creek it is, but nestled between the Bitterroot and the Sapphire Mountains, the scenery as is great as the fishing. Except for this ugly ducking fishing cabin. Built in the 1990s, it was constructed to the energy efficient standards of the day, including a layer of foam insulation outside of a 2x6 wall with blown insulation. When the weekend cabin became the permanent home of Joe, the fisherman, the outside needed a face-lift. Joe knew a builder with a pile of rough sawn pine leftover from a big board and batten job. He had it delivered and hired Chris Whalen to teach him how to install it. First, Chris sets up shop Chris Whalen: (Laughs…) Well, when I watch this, it doesn't look like we're doing a very good job of setting up. As far as tools that we needed, glide saw and the table saw were the two main tool that were used. In terms of where we set up it was just where the pile of lumber was relative to where we were going to be applying it. Before filling in the siding, Chris outlined the perimeter with corners, water tables, and rake boards. Chris: I took all of the corner boards to my shop and I ripped them on the table saw—the big tablesaw—by mitering the joint it looks like an actual 6x6 rather than a couple of boards just laid over the surface. The corners are biscuited—mainly to index them—because rough sawn lumber is varying thicknesses, the biscuits index an equal amount off the face to yield long crisp miters after they are glued, clamped, and screwed into place. Next comes the window trim Chris: I did the windows two ways. The first I did was what you seeing here, piece by piece ... But he decided to pre assemble them instead—Because I wasn't super happy with how this was coming together. It was difficult to get the pieces pulled into place and get the miters right where the side pieces but to the header, so I decided to pre assemble ... This made a tight fit on all of the joints of all of the windows.It was simpler to do, and in my opinion, they came out better. He built the casing to be a little bigger than the outside dimensions of the window frame—maybe an 1/8 of an inch all the way around. And when I pre assembled them, I used biscuits and pocket screws. On the back side. Over the horizontal trim pieces, a flashing is installed, mostly to protect the trim piece. Because t he wall is already water tight, so any leaks that get behind this new siding, will drain down the old siding and out the bottom. The other reason is the climate—we're a high mountain desert. We don't get much rainfall, we don't get driving rain (there's really not even very much snow). The flashing really just protects the horizontal trim pieces from surface runoff. With the perimeter framed, it’s time to screw some wood to the walls He starts in the center of the wall—you’re either going to start with a board in the center or a gap in the center—depending on how the width of the board divides out over the width of the wall. The first board is plumbed into position and screwed to the wall in the center of the board. That allows the boards to expand or contract without cracking. If you fasten the wide boards with two screws across the face, the boards will crack when they expand and contract. The screws in the battens go between the boards—to not anchor the edge against movement. Chris begins by cutting the big pieces for Joe to install first. Part of that was just a timing thing, because I could come back and fool around with the boards that needed to be cut while Joe was screwing off the rest of the boards. So I was just trying to keep ahead of him. Joe eyeballs a 3/4 inch gap between boards and plumbs them as he goes working his way toward the corner. Now, it’s time to fill the gables First, Chris and Joe fill in the rake trim. Then Joe begins with a gap in the center and aligns with the boards below. Joe installs one side and then the other. The gable on this side has a porch roof, so the pieces are angled at the top and the bottom. Back on the easy side, Joe fills in the remaining boards and battens. This stain grade siding will eliminate the need to paint, so this fisherman will have time for what’s important after converting a weekend cabin into a full-time fishing hideaway. —Chris Whalen is owner of Black Mountain Company, a renovation, building, and woodworking company in Missoula, Montana.

"Designed to fit into a tight spot in a suburban location, this tiny house even has a detachable drawbar to save on space outside the tiny house. Being young and fit these clients chose to forgo the comfort of a staircase for a vertical ladder fixed to the wall - a super space saving solution. These clients often work from home, so they've chosen to have a dedicated office space similar to the Millennial tiny house prototype, where your feet hang down below the loft into a footwell in the kitchen. The other unique feature is the net that spans between the two lofts. It acts first and foremost as a safety feature, but it's also an awesome place to chill out and read a book!"

THE URBAN SPACE: The area lies on a hillside between the areas of Hjallavegur and Blikagøta, with a total size of 45.000 square meters. The area is uninhabited and no construction preparation has been done. The space is open, green and with steep terrain – there are no buildings, no roads or trees. The area is used by local small farmers for sheep grazing. Each cadastre is enclosed and some of them have a very small byre. THE URBAN CHALLENGE: The goal is to establish a residential neighbourhood without large incisions in the terrain, but to build smaller homes that are adapted to the landscape and allow for urban farming. Location: Hillside, Runavík, Faroe Islands (map) Project Owner: Municipality of Runavík Project Manager: Janus Trúgvason Engineer, Technical Division, Municipality of Runavík E-mail: [email protected] Competition Portal: http://nbccrunavik.com/

Kate and Simon built this 250 square foot off-grid Scandinavian-style tiny house as a cottage and have since started building tiny houses as a family business. To find out more about their tiny house construction, you can check out the Cabane website here: http://minicabane.com/ This tiny house is 8.5 feet wide, 13 feet tall, and 20 feet long. It's been designed to be fully off-grid with a solar panel and 12-volt battery bank for power, propane for the stove and water heater, and a cubic mini wood stove for heat. They used a soy-based spray foam insulation, and a natural oil finish for the interior wood finish. We love all the space saving furniture they custom designed for their tiny house, and all the thought that went into making it a functional space for the couple and their young son. The kitchen is massive with loads of storage space and countertops, and they did it without having overhead cabinets which gives the space a nice open concept feel. The loft is quite spacious and can accommodate a queen-sized bed, and also has built-in storage and night tables, as well as a window for ventilation. In the bathroom they have a 30x30 inch shower, a dry bucket-style toilet, and they have a grey water tank. With the sliding patio doors leading onto a spacious deck, this tiny house merges indoor and outdoor living space seamlessly. Thanks for watching!

CLEAN LINES, OPEN SPACES: A VIEW OF MID-CENTURY MODERN ARCHITECTURE international-style architecture; A Utopian Ideal Modern architecture or modernist architecture is a term applied to an overarching movement, with its exact definition and scope varying widely. The term is often applied to modernist movements at the turn of the 20th century, with efforts to reconcile the principles underlying architectural design with rapid technological advancement and the modernization of society. It would take the form of numerous movements, schools of design, and architectural styles, some in tension with one another, and often equally defying such classification. The term Modern architecture may be used to differentiate from Classical architecture following Vitruvian ideals, while it is also applied to various contemporary architecture styles such as Postmodern, High-tech or even New Classical, depending on the context. In art history, the revolutionary and neoclassical styles that evolved around 1800 are also called modern. The concept of modernism is a central theme in the efforts of 20th century modern architecture. Gaining global popularity especially after the Second World War, architectural modernism was adopted by many architects and architectural educators, and continued as a dominant architectural style for institutional and corporate buildings into the 21st century. Modernism eventually generated reactions, most notably Postmodernism which sought to preserve pre-modern elements, while "Neo-modernism" has emerged as a reaction to Post-modernism. Notable architects important to the history and development of the modernist movement include Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Erich Mendelsohn, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Gerrit Rietveld, Bruno Taut, Arne Jacobsen, Oscar Niemeyer and Alvar Aalto. Common themes of modern architecture include: the notion that "Form follows function", a dictum originally expressed by Frank Lloyd Wright's early mentor Louis Sullivan, meaning that the result of design should derive directly from its purpose simplicity and clarity of forms and elimination of "unnecessary detail" materials at 90 degrees to each other visual expression of structure (as opposed to the hiding of structural elements) the related concept of "Truth to materials", meaning that the true nature or natural appearance of a material ought to be seen rather than concealed or altered to represent something else use of industrially-produced materials; adoption of the machine aesthetic particularly in International Style modernism, a visual emphasis on horizontal and vertical lines

Many companies offer "log home packages" but what does that really mean? Tod & Zach Parmeter discuss that in our latest video. https://www.goldeneagleloghomes.com/log-timber-home-packages/default.asp Complete Package One-Stop-Shopping is why Golden Eagle has sold over 5,000 homes Golden Eagle's Complete package has evolved into what most customer's want and is, by far, the easiest way to purchase a log or timber frame package. Our "one-stop-shopping" approach creates the most thorough and stress-free package on the market. Kitchen and bath cabinetry, fireplace & stone, plumbing fixtures, interior doors & finish materials, even the kitchen sink... all with unlimited choices. Shell Plus Package We call ours a shell plus because we include more than other companies' shell packages When shopping for a shell package, note that every company's package is different and none that we know of is more complete than ours. Every company includes different things. To some, weathertight shell packages may mean tar paper on the roof and no windows, soffit, fascia, decks, exterior trims, stain, etc. The Golden Eagle Shell Plus package is truly a weathertight package. It includes everything you need to button up the exterior of your home, even the code-compliant plans. Premium Full Log Packages Solid Log Exterior Walls Choose from many log sizes, shapes, textures and corner styles. We manufacture and kiln dry them all! If you have always dreamed of living in a full-log home, rest-assured that Golden Eagle's log homes are extremely energy efficient. We design our full log homes with conventional interior partition walls, giving you the option of using drywall, stone, or tongue & groove to compliment your home. It also allows you to change your home's color scheme if desired. Premium Half Log Packages 2 x 6 insulated wall construction The exterior of the home is half log, cut directly from a full log with authentic full log corners. Therefore, the exterior of this home looks exactly like a full log home. Every interior wall will be your choice of half log, drywall, stone, or tongue & groove planking. Quarter Log homes are similar to our half log homes with authentic full log corners, but the log is thinner, which saves you money. Budget Package Series A More Budget Minded Version of a Premium Full Log Package This is referred to as the Budget Package because they are designed to keep costs down. Yes, they are not as luxurious as our other plans and packages, yet they exceed the quality of what the competition usually sells. The plans and specifications in the Budget Package have been selected to maintain the objective of keeping the homes affordable, help you stay on budget, and save money. A full log home is less expensive to build than a half log home, which is why we designed our Budget Package around our 8"x8" full log wall system with vertical corners. Premium Exposed Beam Timber Packages Nonstructural Timber Frame This is our most popular timber home package, and it's for the customer who wants a moderate amount of timber and beam accents inside and out. Premium Maintenance Free Exposed Beam Timber Packages Nonstructural Timber Frame This is similar to our Premium Exposed Beam Timber Package, but is enhanced with many maintenance-free building products - including horizontal clapboard siding with a wood grain texture in your choice of many colors. Ultra Custom Timber Packages Nonstructural Timber Frame This is our most elaborate and detailed timber home. It's designed for the customer who understands the beauty of timber and needs the best of the best. The added wall height and craftsman style roof overhang allow for maximum natural light. Ultra Traditional Timber Frame Packages Structural Timber Frame If you are looking for an authentic timber frame structure and an ageless building system that has been around for thousands of years - this is it! This style of home features vertical timbers that support your home and is our most expensive building system.
