Kitchen of the Week: A Modern Space Thanks to a Traditional ‘Tsubo-Niwa’

Today, we’re sharing their most recent project, a renovation of an old Victorian in Hackney, London, featuring a Japanese-inspired tsubo-niwa. Tsubo is a unit of measure equal to the area of two tatami mats (about 3.3 square meters); niwa means garden. As a compound word, it describes a small courtyard garden—and that’s precisely what was added to the property to connect a new rear addition to the original building. Inserting a classically Japanese feature into a classically European house may seem like an odd mismatch, but…

Is “Renewable” Natural Gas Really Green?

Natural gas is a versatile fossil fuel that accounts for about a third of U.S. energy use. Although it produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants than coal or oil, natural gas is a major contributor to climate change, an urgent global problem.
