The clients were aiming for country shelter for the weekend, for the couple and two girls.The site is placed on a seaside; where there are 10 km long and 200 meters height cliffs. This region has historically been a harvest area of “cochayuyo” (chilean alga), and seafood. The difficult access to the cost forces a lot of time to walk through rough paths.We design a small shelter using timber, stone and glass materials. It is rectangular volume with two levels. It faces the sea with the smallest facade. The location of the house is closed to the cliff, making a vertigo sensation.  On the ground floor is a free plan. On one site there is the living and on the other there is the dining room and the kitchen. A stair case divides these two areas.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneSave this picture!© Sergio PirroneOn the second floor it is the principal bedroom facing the sea, and to the back there is the kid´s bedroom and a guest bedroom.The idea of the house was a sequence of layers from the ground floor to the top of the building. The first layer is a local stone plinth which generates a first platform (ground floor) which contains the public areas of the house. These lines of plinths come out from the backside of the house, generating the exterior life.Save this picture!Wall SectionThese stone lines put the outlines of the landscape creating corners behind the house without wind (sheltering the prevailing south wind, called “surazo”). Those corners are the stove, the grill, firewood keeper, benches, etc.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneThe following layer is a continues line of glass that gives lightness to the volume of wood which is sitting on the line. This continues line of glass allow 180° degrees views to the ground floor.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneThe third layer is a volume with a timber facade; the cladding is made with the planks put on edgeway. This volume contains the bedrooms and generates a balcony situation to the cliff.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneProject gallerySee allShow lessAtkins Designs Striking Office Complex in GuangzhouArchitecture NewsSALVA46 Coliving in Barcelona / MIEL Arquitectos + STUDIO P10Selected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

ClassNK issues guidelines for vessels using low-flashpoint fuels besides LNG


first_imgJapanese classification society, ClassNK, has released guidelines for ships using low-flashpoint fuels besides liquefied natural gas (LNG).In order to reduce atmospheric pollution caused by sulphur oxides (SOx) and particle matter (PM) found in vessel emissions as well as weather effects caused by GHG emissions, environmental regulations have been getting more strongly enforced.In theory, ships using alternative fuels such as LNG, LPG, and methyl/ethyl alcohol can reduce the amount of CO2 emissions by 10 percent to 20 percent compared to conventional oil fuels, and they do not contain sulphur. For this reason, alternative fuels are expected to be an effective solution for the regulations, ClassNK said.These alternative fuels have lower flashpoints compared to traditional fuels, therefore particular attention needs to be given to ensuring adequate safety precautions when using low-flashpoint fuels in order to decrease the potential risk of fire and explosions that may arise as a result of fuel leakage onboard the ship.International safety requirements for low-flashpoint fuels have been discussed at IMO and as a result, the International Code of Safety for Ships using Gases or other Low-flashpoint Fuels (IGF Code) has been adopted and enforced. The current code however, does not address specific regulations for alternative fuels other than LNG.ClassNK released the guidelines for ships using low-flashpoint fuels (Methyl/Ethyl Alcohol / LPG) which outline safety requirements for other viable alternative fuels besides LNG, based on the latest technology and regulation trends in order to promote the design of alternative fueled ships.The guidelines divide targeted vessels into three categories: ships using methyl/ethyl alcohol as fuel, ships fuelled by LPG, and liquid gas carriers fuelled by LPG. They take into consideration the properties of each fuel type and ship regulations and indicate safety requirements for the arrangement and installation of the low-flashpoint fuel related systems for minimizing risks to vessels, crew, and the environment.The guidelines reflect current trends and will be amended periodically in accordance with any changes in the IGF Code during future IMO discussions and the rapid development of new technologies.Speaking on the occasion, Hayato Suga, corporate officer and director of plan approval and technical solution division said, “in addition to LNG, low-flashpoint fuels like Methyl/Ethyl Alcohol and LPG are providing ships with alternative fuel options that have diverse characteristics in terms of environmental performance, availability, price, and more. Regardless of the choice, adequate safety measures are essential.” He added that the latest guidelines have incorporated regulatory trends and our expertise proposes the appropriate requirements tailored to Methyl, Ethyl Alcohol, and LPG respectively.last_img read more

Mariners continue historic start with extra-inning win vs. Royals


first_imgThe Mariners just keep on winning.With their 7-6 victory in 10 innings over the Royals on Thursday, Seattle is 13-2 through 15 games, which is one of the hottest starts in MLB history. The Brewers of 1987 and the Braves of 1982 are two of the only teams ever with better starts historically, both going 13-0 to begin their respective years.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNOn Thursday, the Mariners continued the formula that has served them so well all season. They hit home runs and they came back to win.Mitch Haniger’s triple to center field in the top of the ninth inning brought two runners around to score to tie it up at 6.The Mariners would add a run in the 10th inning as well to win it on a Dan Vogelbach home run.Avg exit velocity leaders:1. Aaron Judge- 97.82. Daniel Vogelbach- 96.6The tater below? 112.7 mph— Alex Fast (@AlexFast8) April 11, 2019Dee Gordon added a homer as well as this marked the 15th straight game to start the year in which Seattle hit a home run, which is also an MLB record.Studs of the NightAthletics designated hitter Khris Davis went 2-for-5 with two homers and three RBI’s in Oakland’s 8-5 win over the Orioles. He now has nine homers on the season which leads MLB.Indians starter Shane Bieber tossed seven scoreless innings with six strikeouts in Cleveland’s 4-0 win over the Tigers.Cardinals right fielder Jose Martinez went 4-for-5 with a double and an RBI in St. Louis’ 11-7 win over the Dodgers. Dud of the NightBlue Jays closer Ken Giles blew his first save since 2017, allowing two runs while walking three and recording just one out in Toronto’s 7-6 loss to the Red Sox.HighlightWho says you can’t beat the shift on an inside pitch? Joey Votto somehow took a delivery on the inner half and put it past the shift on the left side to put a runner in scoring position. See, you don’t have to pull the ball all the time guys. The Reds beat the Marlins 5-0.OK class, here is today’s lesson in Choking Up 101. It also fulfills your course requirement for Beating The Shift 201. 🎓— Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) April 11, 2019What’s NextMets (8-4) at Braves (7-5) 7:20 p.m. ET — The Mets got the better of Atlanta on Thursday, but the Braves have Sean Newcomb (0-0, 1.64 ERA) on the mound, who has been very good to start the season. Zack Wheeler (0-1, 10.24) has been bad for the Mets, so Atlanta may have a chance to get one back on Friday.last_img read more
