Kurzbeschreibung

3. Februar 2005
The Very Small Home is an inspiring new book that surveys the creative design innovations of small houses in Japan. Eighteen recently built and unusual houses, from ultramodern to Japanese rustic, are presented in depth. Particular emphasis is given to what the author calls the "big idea" for each house-the thing that does the most to make the home feel more spacious than it actually is. Big ideas include ingenious sources of natural light, well thought-out loft spaces, snug but functional kitchens, unobtrusive partitions, and unobstructed circulation paths.
An introduction puts the houses in the context of lifestyle trends and highlights their shared characteristics. The Houses section details each project the intentions of the designers and occupants are explained. The result is a very human sensibility that runs through the book, a glimpse of the dreams and aspirations that these unique homes represent and that belies their apparent modesty. The second half of the book is devoted to illustrating the special features in the homes, from storage and kitchen designs to revolutionary skylights and partitions.
Building small can be a sign of higher ambitions, and those who read this book will undoubtedly grow to appreciate that building a small home can be an amazingly positive and creative act, one which can enhance one's life in surprising ways. In The Very Small Home, Brown has given home owners, designers, and architects a fascinating new collection of ideas.

Pressestimmen

"Azby Brown has done it again. I loved his first book Small Spaces: this one goes further yet in helping to demystify the art of the small house. The book is a must for anyone wanting to understand how to do more with less when it comes to home design. These tiny and exquisitely designed contemporary Japanese homes have so many lessons to teach readers around the world about how to make their homes both functional and beautiful, whatever the size. I, for one, could not put the book down, and I suspect it will have the same effect on a great many readers." - Sarah Susanka, architect & author of The Not So Big House series, and Home By Design"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wirklich innovative Ideen 9. September 2011
Von Leseratte
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
großes Format mit sehr vielen Bildern zu jedem vorgestellten Haus, Grundrissen, Seitenansichten. Dann nochmal eine Seitenübersicht mit allen Häusern und deren Eigenschaften aufgelistet. Mir persönlich hat Penguinhouse und T.R.house am besten gefallen, mit der Aussicht auf Baumwipfel und Rückzugsmöglickeiten.
Engawa House kann mir gar nicht gefallen, habe es bereits schon in einer Zeitschrift (ich glaube; Das Haus) vorgestellt gesehen. Eine längliche Glasschachtel, die eine ganz aufschiebbare Glasfront hat, richtige Trennwände gibt es innerhalb des Hauses nicht. Die Wände von Schlafzimmer, Küche, Arbeitszimmer sind nur bücheregalhoch. Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, wie die Familie, die dort lebt mit 2 Kindern, Privatsphäre erlebt. Für Singles wäre es evtl. aktzeptabel, wenn man nicht über die ganze Breitseite des Hauses wie in ein Puppenhaus reinsehen kann, was der oder die Bewohner gerade tun. Dies ist derzeit ein allgemeiner Trend von vielen modernen Hausentwürfen, auch hier in Deutschland. Meiner Meinung nach hat ein Hamster hat ja mehr Privatshäre in seinem Käfig, als die Bewohner solcher Häuser. Sieht nur gut aus, für die die reingucken, ähnlich wie im Theater. Nun, so ein Buch kann nicht alle Geschmäcker zufriedenstellen, darum für die Fülle und Genauigkeit der Informationen 5 Sterne.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Eine Sammlung von guten und neuen Ideen, die leider kein deutsche Amt abnehmen würde. Aber sehr anregend und mit nett gezeichneten Skizzen überschaubar, hilfreich und seiner Zeit vorraus. Bei Grundstückspreisen, wie z.B. in Bayern, wird es aber nicht lange dauern, bis sich Vernunft und Ästhetik durchsetzt.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Architecture book celebrating the Japanese Modern Mini 3. Juni 2005
Von Zack Davisson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Japan is a country with a large population and very limited living space. Due to its mountainous geography, there is a tradition going back centuries for comfortable living in small areas. A classic of Japanese literature is Kamo no Chomei's "Account of a 10-Foot-Square Hut." Traditional Japanese homes are built to be convertible, to maximise space with collapsible furniture that can be stored and multipurpose rooms that can have walls removed to create bigger spaces when necessary.

Building on this need and tradition is the current architectural Small House movement, where new homes are built on miniature lots, maximizing the space with a surprising efficiency. There are TV shows and books galore on the topic in Japan, and the ideas are starting to creep over in to the US as well, with book such as "The Very Small Home: Japanese Ideas For Living Well In Limited Space."

"The Very Small Home" is a showcase for some of these architectural marvels, eighteen of them to be precise. Each building begins with a different problem to be solved; an ancient tree that must be accommodated by law, a tiny lot in Tokyo that needs to fit two houses. My favorite is the family who each inherited a portion of their parents home. One child inherited the driveway, and needed a long, thin house where he could live in on his section of the land. Going for a traditional feel, the architect created one of the most beautiful homes in the book, complete with tiny garden and a luxurious traditional bath. Many of the solutions are quite ingenious, and the photographs of the homes are beautiful to look at.

What the book is not is a guide to better utilizing existing small-space homes. These are definitely architectural solutions, not interior design or decorating solutions. A lot of money went into these houses, and unless you are willing to completely tear down and rebuild your little living space, there won't be much here for you.

For what it is, however, the books succeeds very well, and those interested in architecture as well as those looking to build a small home of their own will probably be amazed at the creativity and beauty of these buildings. The homes are much more modern than traditional, featuring the sparsity of modern Japanese design. I can't help but think of a master-crafted piece of sushi, reverently sitting on a pristine white plate. Small, but incredible.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Yes, They Are Small 28. Februar 2006
Von A. Ross - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
While I would agree that the 18 homes profiled in this beautifully designed and produced book are very stark and modern for most people's tastes (I certainly couldn't imagine living in any them), I want to clarify a misrepresentation one of the reviewers made. 11 of the 18 houses featured here have floor plans of under 1,000 square feet, and another 4 are right around 1,200 or less-- the smallest is "T-Set House" at 618. About half of the homes are occupied by couples, and the other half are by families of three or four. So, it does have a lot to show one in terms of living in a small space. Of course, a lot of the living solutions cater to the Japanese format of futons on tatami, which are then put away so that the space is usable the rest of the day, so it's not exactly brimming with solutions for the average person. Still, for design or architecture buffs, or just house porn afficianados, each house gets a nice 5-10 photos and is well-explained with cutaway and 3/4 view diagrams. And if one is really interested in the style, the homes profiled are all in the greater Tokyo area and their addresses (and architect contact info) are all listed in the back.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rethinking square footage 13. Juni 2005
Von Gaylon Emerzian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Brown has given us rare access into the homes of Japanese architectural trendsetters. The footprints of these houses may be small but what they lack in floor space is compensated by an airy ambiance. There are translucent walls that fill spaces with light, walls that open like huge shoji screens to merge the inside living space with the outdoors. Clever storage units tuck everything away, leaving clean uncluttered expanses that seem spacious even by Mac Mansion standards. The book definitively illustrates that less is indeed more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Spiritual Home 9. August 2005
Von John Viveiros - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Azby Brown's skills just might finally be realized in his native country. What a breath of fresh air he brings to housing! This country needs less of the expensive mega-residences and over-priced, dysfunctional condos and townhouses. We need more "small communities" of creative villages consisting of Brown's beautiful and functional little houses that could be afforded by the first-time buyer and appreciated for its simplicity by the retired. I loved his Small Spaces, love The Very Small Home more, for the perceptive color photos and exceptionally detailed drawings.

Although the Engawa House is the perfect home, ranch style, and the Home in Kyodo the ultimate family home, my favorite remains Koizumi's Sumire-Aoi House. As a retiree, I'd love to own this house with one modification, a disappearing bed, Murphy style. There is a deeply spiritual quality to Brown's houses that bring a sense of peace and contentment just looking at them, over and over. To live in one of the houses in this book would be to live on a spiritual plane far above the mega-millionaire!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Homes of magic and wonder 3. Juni 2005
Von Camille LeDoux - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Did you ever have a tree house as a child? I did. It was set in a weeping willow tree. The play of light from the leaves over the canvas cover was magical. The Very Small Home by Azby Brown evokes the same feelings in me... feelings of magic and wonder. Brown explores modern the fascinating world of modern Japanese architecture with a seasoned sense of style and design.

The book is beautiful. The images are gorgeous. It is truly fascinating the way these modern Japanese architects have used light among other techniques to create small homes with that appear so open... so roomy. Yet, at the same time they have a coziness that can not be matched by their larger Western counterparts.

Brown gives all the details architect buffs want - floor plans, elevations, coding, etc. without boring the casual reader. The photography is first class - a work of art in itself.

The second part of the book is filled with practical applications of design elements gleaned from these amazing homes.

Whether you are an architect buff, an aficionado of Japanese culture or just someone who wants ideas for creating more space in your home, this book is a must-buy. (It looks great on your coffee table too.)
