The task was clear: Design for us a contemporary country house.We began by exploring the concept of a contemporary Moravian village. Today, the definition of a rural house in Czechia seems to be ambiguous. Within a village, nobody pays attention to the historical and settlement context anymore. We think that Czech and Moravian village experiences one of the largest urban planning crises in history.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceOur aim was to show that a country house should not act as an urban villa placed carelessly in the middle of the estate, a phenomenon common for most of today’s projects. Rather than isolating the estate from its surroundings, it needs to open up and find its way back to the street. Instead of turning away from the street, we wanted to highlight its existence.Save this picture!Ground PlanSave this picture!SectionUnlike a garage, a prominent window was to articulate the connection between the interior and the street. Nonetheless, maintaining privacy for the inhabitants formed an important consideration – a private courtyard located behind a wall is also a well-known feature of local country houses.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceLocation. The estate is situated on the edge of a village, where villas of a more urban character have replaced the traditional rural structure. It seems as if the house formed an imaginary boundary between the old and the new urbanism. The plot is narrow and sloped. Our design came out in an elongated, single-storey shape. The scale of the house corresponds to the scale of a local traditional homestead. The building border has returned as near to the street and neighbours as regulations and neighbourly relationships permit. If it were only for us, the building would have been pushed right to the edge of the estate as it was usual hundreds of years before.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceAs the building owner works in agriculture, we first considered using rammed earth as the material for the exterior walls. Using this method, we would have had plenty of cheap straw and dung at our disposal. But in the end, the investor opted for using conventional cellular concrete blocks. The roofing is bright red and the walls of white so pure it makes one’s eye narrow. The traditional porch provides a pleasant shadow.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceA gable facade with a bay window forms the face of the house. The bay window gently breaks through the facade and the surface gradually seems to soften. This is one of the main features of the house. We strove to maximize the view and to form a relationship between the house and the street. At the same time, we wanted to articulate the representative gable wall of a country house in a contemporary language. We refused to settle for small windows and wished to avoid exaggerated romanticism.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessFoster + Partners Reveal Timber Boathouse for non-profit Row New York in HarlemArchitecture NewsA Video Interview with 3XN Founder on Sustainable Design PrinciplesArchitecture News Share South Moravian Village House / ORA ArchDaily Projectscenter_img Area:  191 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” South Moravian Village House / ORASave this projectSaveSouth Moravian Village House / ORA Year:  Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNice+ 30Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyHouses•Božice, Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: ORA Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Ecuadorean Minister of Defense Visits USNS Comfort

first_imgBy By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman J. Keith Wilson, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command & U.S. 4th Fleet Public Affairs October 29, 2018 As part of its partnership with Ecuador, the hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) hosted officials from the government of Ecuador during the ship’s medical assistance visit, October 22, 2018. Ecuadorean Minister of Defense Oswaldo Jarrin, and U.S. Ambassador to Ecuador Todd C. Chapman were among the distinguished visitors aboard Comfort for a tour of the ship’s medical facilities and a meeting with senior leadership. Both officials made remarks along with U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Sean Buck, commander of U.S. 4th Fleet, during a press conference held aboard the ship. “The U.S. Navy hospital ship Comfort begins its medical support for the people of Ecuador, our first mission stop of five, over an 11-week period, here, in the Southern Hemisphere,” said Rear Adm. Buck. “Working with health and government partners in Ecuador, the embarked medical team will provide care onboard this ship, as well as at two sites ashore.” During the conference, Ecuadorean officials and Rear Adm. Buck discussed Comfort’s mission in Ecuador. “This deployment represents the United States’ enduring promise to the peoples of Ecuador and other Latin American nations of our friendship, our partnership and our solidarity,” added Rear Adm. Buck. “This mission will enable us to strengthen ties in support of our enduring partnerships with the people of Central and South America. It is a partnership that will enhance our shared values, interests, and community, and a commitment to unity, security and stability in the region.” Comfort is on an 11-week medical support mission to Central and South America as part of U.S. Southern Command’s Enduring Promise initiative. Working with health and government partners in Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Honduras, the embarked medical team will provide care on board and at land-based medical sites, helping to relieve pressure on national medical systems caused partly by an increase in cross-border migrants. The deployment reflects the United States’ enduring promise of friendship, partnership and solidarity with the Americas.last_img read more

BW Energy sees delay in Gabon well hook-up

first_imgTwo months after the production start-up at the Tortue Phase 1, BW in November 2018 sanctioned the second phase of its Tortue development. The Tortue development will upon completion of Phase 2 have six wells. Total production after the completion of Phase 2 is projected to be 17.3 – 21.6 kbopd gross for 2020 from six producing wells, compared with an average of 11.8 kbopd gross produced in 2019. Phase 2 development activities started in 2019 and continued into 2020. This phase consists of four production wells, tied back to the FPSO BW Adolo. Covid-19 restrictions The well was expected to be connected in June but, given the COVID-19 restrictions, the timing of this activity is estimated to occur later this year. The DTM-4H and DTM-5H were the first of two clusters. The second cluster was scheduled to begin production by June 2020. Panoro said that the production in Gabon for 2020 is now expected to average 15,000-16,500 bopd (gross), with the 10 per cent reduction in range due to the uncertain timing of hooking up the completed DTM-6 well. center_img However, Panoro, a partner in the project, informed on Monday that the hook-up was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. BW Energy has experienced a delay in hook-up operations for a well in the Dussafu Marin Permit, offshore Gabon, due to the coronavirus crisis. There are five oil fields within the Dussafu Permit: Moubenga, Walt Whitman, Ruche, Ruche North East, and Tortue. Current production is approximately 17,500 bopd (gross), with operating costs decreased from 2019 levels to $16-18 per barrel. Panoro also said that lifting was completed in March for the account of Panoro, BW, and Tullow, followed by lifting in April on behalf of the State of Gabon.last_img read more
