House in Mukainada is located on the top of a small cape, which has a 20 meters height difference from the sea level and overlooks Hiroshima Bay. In the past, the coastline reached the foot of this cape. But after the reclamation of the land that started 40 years ago, the surrounding landscape has begun to change its appearance. The mountain behind was developed as a new residential area, but only this site remains as it used to be.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kazunori FujimotoA fort-shaped house adapted to the cape’s topography is the idea behind the project. The thick walls provide a sense of security in the interior space against the possibility of natural disasters. Still, at the same time, the sense of spaciousness is provided by the wide rooftop area and from generous proportions of interior spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kazunori FujimotoSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Kazunori FujimotoMoreover, the materiality and the sense of presence typical of the fortresses’ architecture, when inserted into nature, lead it to change the surrounding landscape and elevate it to a new sense of beauty.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kazunori FujimotoAs an architect, I intended to create a living environment that could be perceived its Genius Loci without being influenced by new residential areas’ spatial characteristics. The slanted wall is 1.3 meters thick at the bottom. I wanted to make this wall with a non-reinforced concrete structure, like a gravity-type retaining wall, to give rationality to the shape and structure.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kazunori FujimotoSave this picture!SectionThe fort was used as a metaphor, but the purpose was not the shape of the fort itself. The possibilities of architecture will expand by bringing the potential of ruins and civil engineering structures into architecture. New landscapes and living environments, interwoven with such architecture and nature, are derived from the cape’s topography.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kazunori FujimotoProject gallerySee allShow lessNoble House / APOLLO Architects & Associates + Satoshi KurosakiSelected ProjectsPatema Inverted / L’EAU designSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957078/house-in-mukainada-kazunori-fujimoto-architect-and-associates Clipboard Houses Construction Team: 2020 Komatsu Koumuten House in Mukainada / Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & AssociatesSave this projectSaveHouse in Mukainada / Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & Associates CopyHouses•Hiroshima, Japan Area:  152 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDailycenter_img House in Mukainada / Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & Associates CopyAbout this officeKazunori Fujimoto Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHiroshimaOn FacebookJapanPublished on February 19, 2021Cite: “House in Mukainada / Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & Associates” 18 Feb 2021.

Update: Alpha Petroleum takes Stena Spey rig on a long-term deal

first_imgBy Bartolomej TomićOffshore drilling specialist Stena Drilling has reportedly secured a long-term contract for its Stena Spey semi-submersible drilling rig.Stena Spey / Image source: WikimediaOffshore rig brokers Bassoe Offshore on Tuesday shared an update showing that Alpha Petroleum, a UK North Sea-focused oil company, had signed a contract with Stena Drilling for the 1983 semi-sub.Per details shared by Bassoe, Alpha Petroleum has hired the Stena Spey on a 580-day contract, of an estimated dayrate of $135.000. The contract is expected to start on March 20, 2019, and end on October 20, 2020.The Stena Spey rig is currently warm-stacked in Norway. Offshore Energy Today last time wrote about to rig back in August when it was announced that CCB had won a Special Periodic Survey contract for the Stena Spey.The Stena Spey is one of three semi-subs owned by Stena Drilling, which apart from the semis also owns four drillships. Stena’s semi-sub fleet is soon to be reduced by one unit as the company in October said it would retire and sell its Stena Clyde rig after the rig spent three years stacked in Australia.Stena’s remaining active rig, the Stena Don, is currently undergoing upgrades in the Netherlands and will go on a contract with Total in the UK in March next year. Stena’s four drillships are all currently employed in Ghana, Guyana, Cyprus, and the Gambia.Stena Drilling fleet status / Chart generated by Bassoe Analytics toolWorth noting, Bassoe’s report shows the rig will be deployed at Alpha’s Cheviot field in the UK North Sea. Alpha will use the rig for the development drilling program at its Cheviot field in the UK North Sea. Bassoe shows the deal is for 18 wells.Alpha Petroleum in October said the sanction for the Cheviot development would occur in Q4 2018 with first oil targeted for the second quarter of 2021.The oil company has said that Baker Hughes GE (“BHGE”) will partner with the firm on the advancement of the subsea infrastructure and integrated drilling services for Cheviot.The Cheviot development programme will consist of a minimum of 18 wells: 13 production wells, two water injection wells, and two gas injection wells.Offshore Energy Today has reached to both Stena Drilling and Alpha Petroleum, seeking confirmation that the rig deal has indeed been signed.A Stena Drilling spokesperson declined to comment citing confidentiality reasons.A source familiar with the matter who did not want to be identified on Wednesday confirmed for Offshore Energy Today that the deal had indeed been struck. Our source, however, claims the contract is actually for 480 days and not for 580 days as stated by Bassoe. The source further says the dayrate is lower than Bassoe’s estimated $135.000. The source, however, did not provide an exact number.Bassoe has since also revised the terms of the agreement down to 480 days, and lowered the estimated dayrate to between $115.000 – $120.000Alpha Petroleum declined to comment.The article was previously updated to state that Bassoe’s report shows the contract is for deployment of the Stena Spey rig at Alpha’s Cheviot field.Offshore Energy Today Staff (Updates: A source close to the matter confirms the deal, but says the term, dayrate lower.

SBM Offshore to Deploy WEC Prototype Off Monaco

first_imgDutch-based O&G floating production specialist SBM Offshore has taken the next step in its wave energy converter project, as it plans to carry out sea trials offshore Monaco from 2021.SBM Offshore has been developing this new generation of breakthrough wave energy converter (WEC S3) since 2009.The support of “Investissements d’Avenir” of the French State, entrusted to ADEME has facilitated SBM Offshore in this next step to put a prototype in the open sea.While the WEC S3 has undergone basins tests over the past years in its development, based on the simulation of wave action, the sea trials from 2021 should facilitate the next step in industrialization of the technology.The sea trial will test the system in real conditions to assess the system behavior, material ageing and power conversion systems, as well as allowing optimal integration in the marine life environment. At the same time, the prototype will deliver the first kWhs to the grid, SBM Offshore explained.Didier Beynet, SBM Offshore Monaco Country Director, said: “While continuous R&D basin tests have validated the feasibility of our wave energy technology, the step towards industrialization requires a prototype to be tested at sea, which will be connected to the electricity grid. We extend our sincere appreciation to the Monaco government for facilitating this significant milestone, particularly given the international support for renewable energy demonstrated by the Principality under the leadership of HSH Prince Albert II.”Described in simple terms by SBM, the prototype is a ‘floating rubber tube’, 60 meters long and 1.2 meters in diameter, which will be submerged at approximately 4 meters water depth. The sea footprint of the experimental site is approximately 300 meters by 80 meters with the anchors.last_img read more

Timberland Library Teams up with Tenino School District

first_imgFacebook32Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Timberland Regional LibraryTenino public school students will soon have more learning tools – computers and internet access – to help them with schoolwork and support their academic success. Here’s how this came about:Tenino Timberland Library staff recently met with representatives from the Tenino School District (TSD) to provide information about Timberland Regional Library’s (TRL) wide range of academic resources. Prior to this meeting a Tenino Middle School teacher visited the Tenino Timberland Library and spoke to library staff about TSD Chromebooks (provided to middle and high school students) and the challenge students have in accessing their homework away from school. Since the Library has access to Wi-Fi, staff brought up to TSD Administrators and Superintendent Joe Belmonte the idea of checking out TSD Chromebooks to students. They loved the idea and by this past January, both organizations signed an agreement authorizing TSD to loan five laptop computers to the Tenino Timberland Library beginning March 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2018. Benefits to students will be evaluated to determine how this partnership is serving students. Here is how it will work:TSD students will be able to check out a Chromebook by providing TSD identification and a valid TRL card. Students will be able to connect to the library’s Wi-Fi to work on school assignments. Library staff members will manage checkouts and returns to ensure no TSD laptops leave the building. TSD computer technicians will provide maintenance and technical support.The Tenino Timberland Library is located at 172 Central Avenue W. For more information, contact the library at (360) 264-2369, or visit www.TRL.org.last_img read more
