Smart Space Planning: An Inspiring Attic Studio Hemidemisemiquaver | Apartment Therapy

I suppose if I lived in a large house I’d be obsessed with how to use large spaces, but I live in a small house so here’s a bright and welcoming small attic studio. Great storage, very light, very open but with access to a lot of materials. I often consider segmenting parts of our basement to the same effect (dedicated spaces for specific hobbies/activities).

The Case for Revolutionizing How We Teach Web Design – Education – GOOD

The Case for Revolutionizing How We Teach Web Design – Education – GOOD.

 

I remember when my alma mater introduced web development to it’s graphic design curriculum (I jumped ship before ever taking the courses, but I’m talking timeline).  Later that year I was exposed to HTML for an unrelated year-end project and began a long road of self-education.  Now the web is the center of my career.

I’m sure my kids will learn HTML by the time they’re in early grade school and it will be for them what cracking c64 software was for me.  No one taught me how to crack into code—I journeyed into that world on my own and don’t think I could have taken any other path. When you get a kid interested in anything early there’s no holding them back—but you can’t institutionalize enthusiasm.

Academia moves slowly—that’s why I majored in ancient history. The tech landscape is moving way too quickly to keep up.

We live in what you *might call a tiny house (under 800sqf) and often run into walls where we’ll excuse creative endeavors saying “if only I had the space…”.  So here’s the deal—we have the space, we just don’t use it.  There’s a garage full of stuff we don’t really want sitting in the backyard.  There’s a patio with high ceilings attached to the house that we park the Jeep in.  Convert the garage? Move the Jeep to the garage and convert the patio? We have options.  This mini-house is an inspiration to re-purposing what’s available into what you want it to be.

 

Yes, we have the space.
