Fujitsu to roll out fibre internet to rural Britain

first_img KCS-content Fujitsu has announced plans to deliver next generation internet services to 5m homes in rural Britain.It says it will provide the infrastructure and work with broadband providers including Virgin Media and TalkTalk, which will wholesale its fibre.Fujitsu says the network is a “ground breaking and innovative alternative to BT Openreach.”The open access wholesale network will be underpinned by Cisco technology. Fujitsu says it will run fibre optic cabling directly to the home in the majority of areas, rather than to the local street cabinet. As a result the network will be capable of speeds of up to 1Gbps from day one, with the potential to achieve speeds of over 10Gbps.It will be deployed across both underground and overhead infrastructure, meaning it will be possible to reach areas where broadband provision is poorest. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To whatsapp Fujitsu to roll out fibre internet to rural Britain Sharecenter_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Wednesday 13 April 2011 7:48 pm Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Another important fact is that only the longest side of the lot has access to street level, facing a sector without trees and abundant pastures so that on this front the lot is too exposed to the street view. Save this picture!Ground Floor Plan The commission The order of commissioners (a married couple with an older child) was a two bedroom house which did not exceed 100m2, designed to be used primarily in the summer and occasionally during the year. It must have two bedrooms, two baths with minimum measures and a common use space (with integrated kitchen) as generous as possible. Was particularly emphasized the need of important outdoors expansions. It was also required a deposit for saving various beach items. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa Pinilla The proposal It is certainly the peculiarity of lot which gives singularity to this home. The topography and the quantity, quality and location of the trees have been defining issues of the two key project decisions: first, locating the house trying to preserve the totality of the existing trees, and therefore parallel to the longer side reachable from one of the streets and, second, to elevate the social area and access to the house regarding the street to achieve privacy and to better relate with the highest point of the lot. As a result of these decisions seemed appropriate to solve the bedrooms on two floors, each about half level of the social area and located perpendicular to it. The house is thus defined by two volumes, each embedded and forming an L, which encloses expansions at different levels. This way, all the rooms in contact with the ground are prolonged to the outside by decks at different heights related to each other with a concrete outdoor staircase. Save this picture!Section 1 The functional organization You access the main level of the house saving a slope through a concrete staircase. Once crossed the front door, and from a small entrance hall, you see two sections of stairs leading, half level above, to one of the bedrooms and a shared bathroom and, half level down and half buried in the dune, the main bedroom with an area to be used as a desk and a bathroom, also shared. From this room you get out to a courtyard and ascend via a stairway to the expansion of the main floor and, from there, to the most elevated and wooded area of the lot. The social area of the house is frankly open to this expansion and with views through the kitchen sector into the woods, while remains protected from the street views by a low opening along the entire front. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa Pinilla Construction The house is constructed of three basic materials: exposed concrete, glass, enclosure beams and pine wood in the outdoor decks. Save this picture!South East Elevation The slabs of the different volumes are supported by walls and exposed concrete reversed beams, and are finished with a minimum slope in order to produce a faster rainwater runoff. It was used the same concrete of the other works in Mar Azul (H21 with fluidizer) a mixture with low amount of water that when forge create a more compact concrete. The few hollow brick internal partitions are plastered and painted and the floors are of concrete screed cloths divided by plates of aluminum. The openings are of dark bronze anodized aluminum. The heating system, since there is no natural gas in the area, is solved by combining salamander, bottled gas stoves and electric stoves. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa Pinilla Furniture Except the queen size bed, the armchairs and chairs, the other equipment of this house is solved in concrete. Even the secondary bedroom beds are perforated cantilever slabs.

I used to live in Paris in a 6th floor walk up on the Rue Montmarte in Les Halles. It was four tiny rooms at the top of a rickety stair with two windows to the street and one to a courtyard and I couldn’t stretch my arms up without hitting the ceiling. For years it was heaven but as that illusion receded and it revealed itself to be more like a straightjacket than paradise I often found myself musing about living in a place with no walls, no windows, no restraints, no limits.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaYears later, when Punta San Lorenzo (simply, SaLo, though I can’t help but think of Altazor when I go there) revealed itself to me one glorious orange and purple hued February afternoon, sitting out in the break at Santa Catalina, it suddenly occurred to me that I might find there what I had been longing for. And so it was. Although slash and burn farming had reduced the hilltop to a barren, scorched knob, it was bounded only be endless sky and ocean all around, with a fringe of forest that echoed with the hoots of curious howlers and a view south I swear almost all the way to the Galapagos.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando AldaStanding on that hilltop that first day it was clear to me that if we were going to try to live there we would need to recreate the devastated ecosystem, and with that in mind we set about constructing a structure made with salvaged materials that we hauled by truck, cayuco, raft, horseback and on our backs over muddy roads, down the Rio Grande, through mangroves, past Playa Banco and across the bay at Arrimadero to the top of the hill.  We built a roof to capture rainwater that fed an open air cistern and provided us with our domestic needs, trees and flowers were planted haphazardly and nature was allowed to take her course. She obliged with a spontaneous explosion of life- birds returned first, twittering in the eaves at dawn, then butterflies, frogs, snakes, iguanas, more howlers- even deer that had been hunted to near extinction found their way back.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaMimicking nature and as a response to her moods, we grew the shelter organically. When thunder, lightning and rainstorms came at us out of the south like a hallucination we grew the roof towards it to buffer the shock of the collision and slid translucent walls into place to keep out the rain, ensuring calm and the hope of salvation within the watery chaos. And when hot summer trade winds came at us relentlessly out of the north trying to blow the house off the hill the walls were drawn back and the roof, light like a kite, undulated like ocean waves or a big bird taking flight.Save this picture!ElevationI set about building SaLo to recreate an ecosystem and to undertake an investigation into the nature of tropical architecture. Over the years I used it as a sort of laboratory where I could experiment with building types and materials and methods and perhaps come to some sort of conclusion about those things. But it turns out that the experiment is better left open ended and the only thing I can say with certainty is that SaLo has immeasurably heightened my appreciation of simple, infinite things like space and time, thereby allowing me a glimpse of what just may be- paradise.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessWant to Work Internationally?

We designed a house in the suburban area of North Kanto. It is a house for a young couple with two small children. As we designed this house, we realized that there is a common question that we are all (including myself) confronted with when living in a contemporary society. Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaFamily structures, household incomes, working styles, hobbies, tastes, weather and climate are all different for different families. Most of us want to be “special” in some way and have a unique lifestyle. At the same time, we all want to be like everyone else, and be average. These thoughts seem conflicting, but it is actually quite natural to feel this way and is considered to be normal consumer psychology: we all want high quality products, but at a cheap price. Save this picture!ElevationTherefore, “mass-production = prefabrication” has been an inevitable solution, and all housing manufacturers have focused on it. However, just like scholar Hideto Kishida wrote in Kenchiku-zasshi in 1947: “I hope for the development of prefabricated houses, but personally I would’t place an order for a prefabricated house”. Not even the older generation who lived right after the war thought prefabrication was a positive solution.Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaIn this project, our main subject was “a non-mass-produced house made with mass-produced components”, and we reconsidered the way the modern housing should be in terms of the construction method. Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaIt has been about sixty years since we started using the metric system after abolishing the Japanese measuring system. However, Shakkanho, the Japanese measuring system, is still the preferred measuring system in the construction industry, especially when constructing wooden houses. In Japan, based on one Tatami mat (3 shaku x 6 shaku), mass-produced components have been widely distributed among manufacturers and they have been prefabricated through a “conventional method” all around Japan. This has made it possible for anyone to achieve modular coordination, meaning that anyone can become an architect as long as he or she can draw a layout on a grid sheet.Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaBy using the measuring system for our expressions – something which comes so natural for Japanese people – we wanted to obtain not only economic efficiency, but also a modular effect when it come to both design and experience.Save this picture!PlanIn terms of the floor planning, 1 grid has been composed of 3 shaku x 3 shaku (910 x 910mm), and the upper floor of 6 x 8 grids, and the rooms have been assigned according to the grids. Vertically, we have set the height of the upper floor at 4 grid (=2 Tatami mat ) and kept it simple. The rafters in the ceiling are mass-produced, six-meter-long square timbers (120 x 120mm, it is usually used as pillar material ), and we have used them as they are, without cutting them. The excess parts are used as eaves. The measurements of the house is dependent on the mass-produced components, which makes it very cost efficient. In terms of expression, the vividness comes through the  “physical material”. And as for the experience, the structure is based on the modular system we are all accustomed to in Japan, which also assures the nostalgic comfort factor. Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaJust like Michelangelo et al. used a giant order to escape the classic architectural order during the Renaissance, this is a giant Shakkanho, which replaces the traditional Shakkanho that has supported Japanese architecture. The ideal, normal state of mind that all Japanese people have been looking for has been found in a natural system they all already have access to.  Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Module Grid House / Tetsuo Yamaji ArchitectsSave this projectSaveModule Grid House / Tetsuo Yamaji Architects CopyHouses•Saitama, Japan Year:  Area:  208 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Structural Engineer: Projects CopyAbout this officeTetsuo Yamaji ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaitamaJapanPublished on May 17, 2016Cite: “Module Grid House / Tetsuo Yamaji Architects” 16 May 2016.

Such a phenomenon is common in rural areas. After the children start a family, the family begin to split up and start new families. The space distance between family members can easily divide the family. Meanwhile, without distance, relatives are likely to turn against each other. The architect tries to organize his multigenerational families through space, based on the specific situation of his family. This is an atypical “gathering house.”Save this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenThe home is planned on the blood relationship. There are two sons and one daughter in this family: elder son stays in the hometown, the daughter was married to a faraway place, and the younger son have own career in a distant city. Now all of the three have established their own family. Three small independent families have grown from the original family. The building presents a combination of four blocks in form, showing the relationship between the original family and the new families. A large traditional sloping roof covers three separate simple square boxes.Save this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenThe first floor contains bedrooms for parents and grandmother as well as a public living room. Part of the second floor of the first floor is the suite of the daughter. Part of the third floor and the rest of the second floor are the elder son’s suites. Part of the fourth floor and the rest of the third floor are the younger son’s (architect) suites. The two floors of each suite are connected by a small stairwell. The public staircase connects the two sons’ suites. The daughter’s suite is on the east side, completely independent from the main living space.Save this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenSave this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenIn rural China, the elder son often takes more responsibility for the parental pension. Therefore, the elder son’s suite is very close to the parents’ space, facilitating taking care of parents. The younger son lives in another city and his suite is set on the upper floor. Different generations have different living needs: parents and grandmothers continue the traditional countryside lifestyle and children get used to the modern lifestyle.Save this picture!north-south sectionSave this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenTo meet different needs, the first floor applied the traditional rural layout with the courtyard space, decorated blue tile.  The main living spaces of the mother and grandmothers are placed on the left and right sides of the main hall and the courtyard, which are also the center of the first floor.Save this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenEach of the three children has separate entrances to maintain privacy. Among them, the suites of sons adopt the form of hopping layout and different planning to meet different needs. The younger son’s suite introduced an open-air courtyard that runs through the upper and lower sides.Save this picture!© Yuanxiang Chen“Home” is not just a container for living. The architect wants to explore the essence of “home” through building a house according to blood relationship and evoke people to think about the relationship between architecture and social relationship.Save this picture!© Yuanxiang ChenProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture for the Blind: Intelligent and Inclusive Spaces for the Blind UserArticlesSalon Guui House and Office / stpmjSelected Projects Share Projects ArchDaily Year:  “COPY” Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeXutan WangOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesShuangfengChinaPublished on August 15, 2019Cite: “My House / Xutan Wang” 15 Aug 2019.
