Brian O’Driscoll answers the fans’ call with one year contract extension

first_imgThursday May 16, 2013 Brian O’Driscoll answers the fans’ call with one year contract extension Ireland and Leinster legend Brian O’Driscoll has today announced that he has extended his IRFU contract for another year, which covers both club and country. Against Biarritz recently the fans requested it, and today, they got what they wanted. The 34-year-old veteran was recently included in the British & Irish Lions squad for the tour of Australia, what will be his fourth Lions tour after first touring Australia as a youngster in 2001. With his form and fitness, Warren Gatland has put faith in the ability, experience, and leadership value that he will bring to the squad. It’s also no doubt a good confidence boost, fully vindicating his decision to continue on for yet another year. He admitted that it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but thanked the fans for all of their support. “I want to thank the IRFU and Leinster for allowing me the time to think about my future and discuss my options with my family,” O’Driscoll said.“The support my family and the Irish and Leinster fans have shown me over the past few months, and indeed years, has been phenomenal and I am now very much looking forward to one more year playing with Ireland and Leinster.”New Ireland coach Joe Schmidt, who has of course spent so much time with O’Driscoll at Leinster, said he was delighted to have the opportunity to work with the great centre for another year.“It’s great that Brian has agreed to continue playing. He’s an inspirational player, not only on the pitch, but also on the training ground,” he said. “He’s played well again this season and other players continue to learn from him. I know that every squad of which he is a part will profit from his qualities both as a rugby player and a person.”This weekend O’Driscoll will be looking to help Leinster to an Amlin Challenge Cup title when they face Stade Francais in Dublin. That, and the RaboDirect PRO12 final a week later (if he plays) were expected to be his final games at home, but fans can look forward to another year of BOD magic. Against Biarritz in the Challenge Cup semifinal he scored a try after a nice break by Sean Cronin, and was then cheered on by the crowd, who spurred on by his acknowledgement, continued their chorus of ‘One more year’. Now they will get to enjoy precisely that.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

TR House Barcelona is a single-family house with a compact morphology. Its shape is the answer to the limitations presented by the pre-existing conditions, combined with an innovative solution and with solid functionality criteria. In light of the urban planning constrains of this site and once it is situated on a depressed area, we had to solve an accentuated slope between the main entrance and the access to the house, creating two levels of access; one inferior and one intermediate. Trough slopes and ramps that establish different relations between the landscape, the house and its interiors, we’ve tried to minimize the big impact of the gap between the main entrance and the lower part of the site.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe result is a 13,00m x 13,50m three-storey cube-shaped volume, placed on a lower level than the street, that tries to establish a visual relationship with the creek that delimits the site, at the same time as it integrates itself visually with the landscape and with the surrounding higher buildings. The volume is organized in a way that gives response to the users’ needs, creating a central axis from which you can access the several rooms and that guarantees, at the same time, privacy from the street and neighbours, and a visual relationship with the natural environment. In the opposite direction of this axis, the house seeks to merge with the verdant surroundings.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe image of the building aims to respond to the defined functional needs. On one side, an outer envelope made of vitrified ceramic tiles, assembled on a stainless steel wired net, giving response to the need to merge with the green surroundings. Within a range of greens, we’ve worked with four different tones to obtain de same shades that one observes on the surrounding landscape during the four seasons of the year, creating the required merging feeling. By this ceramic curtain we were able to solve 4 plans that in architecture are normally solved in separate ways: the facade, the pergola, the curtain walls and the roof.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Pedro PegenauteOn the other side, the facades where all the rooms are open to, respond to visual and privacy settings, which connect or hide the inhabitants with the surroundings. The resulting solution is a facade created with chestnut wooden slats, which have openings that where strictly dimensioned according to lighting needs and comfort of the users. In these opening areas one can find a hidden system of adjustable horizontal aluminium slats that allow the user to control solar incidence and to provide greater comfort levels.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe outside platforms are stitched in a way that connects the different access areas located different heights, with a cobblestone ramp made with granite pieces interpolated with small grass areas.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteOn the exterior side that is open to the landscape, a large wooden platform has de function to lengthen the living/dining room area, extending it to the outside, creating a nice outer living space, under the shade of trees. This platform also gives access to the back part of the house, establishing an interesting circuit flow.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteDue to its morphology and topography, the trapezium shaped site exposes a heavy slope on the tip that is closer to the creek. In this area, further away from the street, a playing area is generated. The pronounced slope is solved with a wooden platform sequence that establishes a dialogue between the house and the garden, once the platforms are made with the same type of chestnut wood that one can find on the facade. The proportion and disposition of the wooden pieces are the same, both on the facade and on the exterior platforms.Save this picture!SectionTherefore, the TR House Barcelona represents an innovative fully-functional exercise that achieves a clear dialogue with its surroundings at the time as it gives an answer to the changing needs of its users.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Park Hill Estate / Jack Lynn and Ivor SmithArchitecture ClassicsApartment House Prenzlauer Berg / Barkow LeibingerSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Pedro Pegenaute Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  506 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Barcelona, Spain Houses Architects: PMMT Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers: Technal, Parquets Nadal, Flexbrick, Font Fusters Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/803827/casa-tr-pmmt Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officePMMTOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarcelonaSpainPublished on January 27, 2017Cite: “TR House / PMMT” 27 Jan 2017.
