The project involves the renovation and partial reconstruction of a residence located in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The project takes advantage of the surrounding views and the topographical conditions of the site to achieve a home that is perceived more as a journey through the site, than as a house itself.Save this picture!Courtesy of T SieteThis route starts from the entrance at street level, and continues through a series of garden platforms articulated by stone walls and platforms that are arranged so that they can provide different views of the environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of T SieteThe program of the house is divided into two building blocks, which are linked together by a living room located at the center of the spaces, set at a level below, corresponding to the level of the terrain. This room can be traversed by a glass bridge that takes visitors to the dining room. The main room is lit naturally through a dome.Save this picture!Courtesy of T SieteThe layout of the house is accented by sturdy stone walls, which in turn are the main structural elements. These stone walls are built on a base of exposed concrete and clad with stone from the site to achieve a greater integration between the home and the environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of T SieteAll cuts and excavations have been left exposed to achieve a greater integration between the house and the site.Save this picture!Access Level Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAJ’s Women in Architecture Survey Reveals Discrimination and a Pronounced Pay GapArchitecture NewsCisura House / Manuel Cucurell + Sebastián VirasoroSelected Projects Share Cumbres House / T SIETE – Taller de ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveCumbres House / T SIETE – Taller de Arquitectura ArchDaily Mexico CopyHouses•Mexico Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  2010 “COPY” Cumbres House / T SIETE – Taller de Arquitectura Projects CopyAbout this officeT Siete – Taller de ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMonterreyMexicoPublished on January 14, 2014Cite: “Cumbres House / T SIETE – Taller de Arquitectura” [Casa Cumbres / T Siete – Taller de Arquitectura] 14 Jan 2014.

Sensor switch set for Bourne Tidal Test Site

first_imgThe MRECo operations team – together with those from the University of Rhode Island and Nortek – plans to replace sensors installed at the Bourne tidal site in an operation set for tomorrow.At the site – located in Cape Cod Canal in Massachusetts – the teams will remove the two acoustic doppler current profilers and replace them with the freshly charged systems.The data that is being collected is part of the research being conducted by Soroush Kouhi a PhD candidate at the University of Rhode Island to work out the details of how best to measure and characterize the water flow resource at tidal turbine sites.According the organization in charge of site development – Marine Renewable Energy Collaborative (MRECo) – a diver will be dive in off the work boat in order to recover the Nortek Signature 500 Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP).Afterwards, a different ADCP – the Signature 1000 – so there will not be any down time waiting for data download, MRECo said.Nortek is a Norwegian company that designs, develops and produces scientific instruments that apply the Doppler principle to underwater acoustics in order to measure water in motion – such as currents and waves.The teams will have a second external battery canister loaded with batteries and the Signature 1000 will be programmed and compass calibrated at the ramp prior to heading out for the recovery at slack low, MRECo informed.To remind, BTTS was installed in November 2017. The site is suitable for testing of tidal energy components or turbines of up to 3 meters in diameter with maximum output of 100kW.last_img read more
