Ulster bid to maintain momentum

first_imgBiarritz will meet UlsterBiarritz Olympique and Ulster Rugby will bring the curtain down on the opening two weekends of the 16th season of Heineken Cup when they clash at Parc des Sports Aguilera in a contest that could have a major bearing on the final outcome of Pool 4.Ulster Rugby made sure of banking maximum points on the opening night of the tournament with four tries against Italian newcomers Aironi Rugby but outside half Ian Humphreys accepts they face a far tougher task against last season’s Heineken Cup finalists.“The Heineken Cup is a big step up and Biarritz were runners up last year so it’s a massive challenge for us – but it is also the kind of challenge that allows us to see how good we are,” said the player now filling the No 10 boots of elder brother David at Ravenhill and one of the try scorers against Aironi.“We think we have done pretty well so far but Sunday will be a real test.“It is going to be tough going down there but, if we can perform as we know we can, we can definitely get something out of the game.“It is still early days but we are unbeaten and we’ll take plenty of positives. We’re going down there full of confidence. If we can play like we did against Aironi, cut out the mistakes and play at that intensity, not many teams will be able to live with us.“We have got to go there with confidence. We’re on a roll, winning is a habit and at the moment we’ve got that habit and hopefully it can continue next week.“It was an enjoyable opener as I think we all had the mindset that we were going to play a bit of rugby. We tried to lift the intensity and I think Aironi struggled to deal with that at times.“It was just through a few mistakes that we didn’t pile on the points. A couple of times we tried to force the offload and force passes. The challenge against the top teams like Biarritz is that we need to tighten up on that and cut out the silly errors.” “It was solid throughout the game and all credit to the front row, I thought Tom Court and Bryan Young did exceptionally well, along with Rory Best as well.“That gives us another boost in confidence going into the game with Biarritz who will be a very tight scrummaging unit.” TAGS: Ulster Ulster Rugby – the 1999 tournament winners – have failed to qualify for the knock-out stages for the 11 seasons since then and head coach Brian McLaughlin was pleased to have got off to a five-point start with higher mountains to climb.“It has been an exceptional start,” he said. “We are very happy with where we are, we think we’re in a good place and we know we can still play better.“Biarritz are last year’s runners up, they’re a smashing side and we’re under no illusions.“Aironi are a very tough physical pack and things will be no different in Biarritz. We have to make sure we deal with that and match their physicality.“And they will be a different proposition on their own patch but we’re going to go there with a lot of confidence. If we can make sure we take our opportunities when they arise, well, who knows?“The set scrum was a particularly pleasing point for me against Aironi.

Blue Darters blast Ocoee 44-7

TAGSApopka Blue Darters Previous articleAmerica: Too ashamed to be proud?Next articleMortgage Rates Hold Steady Around 4% Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Freshman running back goes for 222 yards and 3 touchdownsThere are no hurricanes setting their sites on Florida, but the Ocoee Knights may beg to differ. The Apopka Blue Darters rolled into town with category five force and blew Ocoee up 44-7 to open their regular season tonight. The rout comes a week after Apopka beat perennial powerhouse Daytona Beach Mainland 26-14 in a pre-season game at Roger Williams Field on the campus of Apopka High School.Freshman running back Eric Wright gashed the Knights for 222 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while quarterback/running back Jecoryan Davis-Hamilton added 50 yards and three more touchdown runs. They made up for junior running back Cornelius Williams’ absence due to an injury. Williams ran for 181 yards and three touchdowns last week against Mainland, but tonight it was his replacement who ran wild on touchdown bursts of 28, 1 and 80 yards. Davis-Hamilton has lined up as both a running back and quarterback, but against Ocoee he ran between the tackles and behind the Blue Darters’ massive offensive line for three hard earned touchdown runs inside the 5-yard-line.The Blue Darter defense was for the second straight week an immovable presence, wreaking havoc with a swarming pass rush which created several sacks and kept the Knights off balance the entire game.Apopka (1-0) opens its home season next Friday against the Miami Norland Vikings in a non-conference battle.

The house at Blake Street is a response to the blend of coastal and rural characteristics evident at the site. The dominant feature of the house is the massive stone podium which allows for the ruggedness of the site to be preserved without compromising the utility of the house. By elevating the house, it has the feel of being in the trees, and allows the indigenous vegetation of the site to come right up to the house. The stonework is also a reference to the strong presence of many of the older buildings in the surrounding area, which feature stone plinths of identical white Maffra stone and similar rudimentary construction.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe brief called for a house that was relaxed and casual, and felt like it belonged at the site. Because the site is particular exposed to wind, this has dictated the form and position of the building. Entry to the house is on the windward or western side; whilst on the leeward or north eastern side the house opens up to take advantage of the greater protection afforded this side. The scale of the house is mitigated by the stone podium, partially concealed by the ground and vegetation, and containing ancillary spaces and a guest wing.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeBE Architecture has developed a multi-disciplinary practice which draws upon the diverse skills of its staff and covers a range of disciplines including interior, industrial and landscape design. This means that a number of consultants that would normally be needed on a project of this scale are not required. However, key contributions to the project were made by the structural engineer, through the design of an economical and understated structure for the timber buildings, and Marcos Davidson, the artist who made the wrought iron light fitting in the main living space which references the vegetation of the site.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe project was cost effective in spite of the rural location due to the minimisation of the number of trades required. The bulk of the house was built by carpenters utilising conventional lightweight construction techniques. The extensive stonework was also constructed primarily by bricklayers as opposed to specialist stonemasons, utilising rough struck local stone.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe house has been designed and constructed with sustainability in mind. Insulation techniques throughout the house are above and beyond standard requirements, as the house features numerous layers of insulation, applied at each different stage of the construction. External walls feature thick frames, boosting thermal performance. Windows are double glazed with split frames. A variety of other techniques including thermal extract fans, hydronic heating and solar hot water also minimise energy consumption. Extensive underground rainwater tanks provide water for irrigation and all functions required by the house.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe black and white colour scheme of the exterior acknowledges the necessity of treating timber to prolong its lifespan, especially in such an exposed site, but pushes this further to develop a strong graphic composition out of what may initially appear as a constraint.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessA Crash Course on Modern Architecture (Part 2)Articles30 Unit Multifamily Housing Building / NarchSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

This 64 dwellings project, divided into two buildings, is implemented in the heart of the residence Pierre Loti, completing an urban renewal. The master plan places the project at a crossroads of varied building types and densities. As a consequence, the process aims for a volumetric transition, possible within the context, contributing to the future identity of the new Pierre Loti Street.Save this picture!General PerspectiveConsidering the multiple features (size, parking area, orientation, relation to the nearby buildings, surrounding areas layouts…) of the two set up areas offered for each building and the ambitious goal regarding density, a differentiated answer is given for each building in order to make the most of their respective potentials:Save this picture!© Sergio Grazia- On one hand, the R building, through the shape of its roof, floors’ movements (R+4 on the Charles de Gaulle Avenue, R+5 in the center, and R+3 on Pierre Loti street) and volumes’ gradual transition, assures a new link toward Aytré city center.- On its part, the S building facing the most imposing form of the Galapagos building offers in response a more compacted monolithic volume.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe two constructions offer to the passerby sequenced facades: horizontally with long terraces and vertically with entrances and vertical flows inside the buildings, designed as «rifts». The project highlights ideas of appropriation and habitability, with a wish of giving to each dwelling a nearly private access. The treatment of the side spaces in connection to the Pierre Loti Street and following on from the buildings fits in with the latter outline.Save this picture!Context PlanAccesses to the dwellings: housing’s appropriation and privatization.Regarding the R building, the path reinterprets features of an individual housing into the apartment block: passing through a fence, pushing a barrier, following an alley, taking advantage of the landscape and entering the dwelling through a door directly open to the outside.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sergio GraziaOutdoor corridors allow an aerial walk, offer numerous views and support neighborly relations. Besides, they enable the dwellings to be dual-aspect, to benefit from double or triple orientation, and preserve privacy. They lead to only 6 dwellings per floor.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThese «pontoons» establish a gradual distance between public and private spaces. In addition, displaced accesses to the entrances preserve the dwellings’ intimacy from the traffic. The outdoor corridors give access to the dwellings thanks to private footbridges.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaConcerning the S building, the density of the construction and the efficiency of the distribution (8 dwellings per floor) implies a precise work regarding natural light input in each space, and especially in the communal areas. The path invented for the residents starts in a dual-aspect hall, north-south oriented, complete with a north-western fragment. This cutting up in the building allows the creation of clear views toward north, south, and west, in shared spaces bathed in light.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Farmer’s House / AR Design StudioSelected ProjectsRothschild Tower / Richard Meier & PartnersSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:17440 Aytré, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.
