By Claire Glancy “Get bitter or get better”Andrew Trimble has had more heartaches than highs since making his Ireland debut in 2005. He has won 55 caps since then but wasn’t part of the 2009 Grand Slam squad and was dropped ahead of the first Test at the 2011 Rugby World Cup. In the autumn the Ulsterman’s only involvement in the International series was as a media pundit.Then a succession of injuries and good form for Ulster resulted in him getting the nod for the Six Nations opener and he’s never looked back. “Get bitter or get better” was Trimble’s attitude. His resilience and determination has won him many admirers in this Championship, not least Joe Schmidt, who dubbed him the ‘unsung hero’ following a string of strong performances.Disallowed: a forward pass prevented this from countingYou win nothing without luckEveryone needs a little luck. Ireland arrived in Paris with destiny in their own hands. But when Jonathan Sexton missed a couple of kicks and Dimitri Szarzewski was awarded his try despite a knock on, there was a sense that maybe this was not going to be Ireland’s day after all. In the final minutes when Les Bleus had Ireland under pressure and an overlap on the right wing a France try seemed unstoppable.Damien Chouly crossed the whitewash but Vincent Debaty’s pass had gone forward. For Irish fans, that referral to the video referee seemed to take a lifetime with flashbacks to the New Zealand defeat all too fresh in the mind. You could be the best team in the world with the perfect game plan but what can you do if the other team gets lucky? Just ask England, who for a split second must have thought the Championship was theirs.No satisfaction in glorious defeats LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Those days are long gone. The so-called ‘golden generation’ of Irish rugby managed to win just one Six Nations title in a decade and only six players who were in the 2009 Grand Slam squad were in the matchday twenty-three that beat France on Saturday.So for the majority of the current crop this has been a first taste of success in their international careers and under Joe Schmidt their appetite and expectations will increase. Known in New Zealand as ‘Mr Rugby’ the Kiwi coach told me his biggest fear is losing. So winning is a must, no matter how it comes. The performance in Paris might not have been pretty but the victory was beautiful.Sometimes fairytales do come trueRelieved of the captaincy, sent to the sin bin in Ireland’s first ever Six Nations defeat in Rome, fifth place finish… is it any wonder Brian O’Driscoll gave the people what they wanted and stayed on for ‘one more year’? Now he bows out a world record holder for his number of International caps and centre partnership with Gordon D’Arcy, as well as being the most capped player and top try scorer in the Six Nations. It’s a fairytale ending fit for Ireland’s rugby king.Fitting finale: BOD went out on a high in ParisThere is life after BODCompetition for Ireland at outside centre? There’s a question that’s never been raised in my whole adult life. Who will step into BOD’s shoes? Tommy Bowe, Keith Earls, Robbie Henshaw, Darren Cave and Jared Payne are all in contention. But until Schmidt has had time to try and test them, we won’t know who has the unenviable task of stepping into BOD’s boots. The uncertainty does not just lie in that position though. Stephen Ferris announced his return to the rugby pitch on Friday night by driving Scarlets winger Kristian Phillips back twenty yards. If his body holds up, it is going to be a huge battle between him and Peter O’Mahony for the blindside spot. Sean O’Brien has yet to return, along with Donnacha Ryan, Dan Tuohy and the plethora of wingers who have also suffered injuries in the last few months. That’s not to mention those who are healthy but just waiting in the flanks for a call up. After years of living in the shadows of the provinces’ successes, it’s an exciting time for the Irish national team.

Our client was a single FIFO worker at the start of the project, who wanted a laid-back and robust sanctuary back home. He would arrive by car from the airport after a month off-shore and wanted the house to be instrumental in readjusting his mindset back into an on-shore, city-based existence for the ensuing month. The home needed to allow a gradual adjustment. Nothing too abrupt. Connection with Fremantle, but also plenty of privacy and dimly lit space to enjoy solitude. A place that was gentle on the senses, yet also engaging. Together with the client, we devised an entrance sequence to perform the initial reset. CopyHouses•Fremantle, Australia “COPY” Architects: Philip Stejskal Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Bo WongFrom the garage, entry is via a back gate, which provides access to a protected porch with lush potted vegetation. From here a solid front door with a high light window. Pass through this into a narrow space with brick floor and walls, dark stained plywood cabinetry and a pond visible through a frameless glass door. A compressive and contemplative space. A right turn leads into a circular space with a low ceiling: the library, which doubles as circulation nexus. From here go straight ahead into the living room; turn right for the spiral stairwell; left for the kitchen; or hook right for the toilet.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Sectional PerspectiveSave this picture!© Bo WongA place to re-orientate and also to remember. The final stop before passing through deep thresholds to parts of the house where local living can begin. The kitchen, still dimly lit and cross-ventilated through louvers from the pond, is a galley and becomes a built-in dining booth at the northern end. The dining room shares a single story volume with the kitchen, which gives way to a double height volume passing East towards the living room. The living room is where the solitude of the ground floor encounters the cheer of a brighter and more outward looking on the first floor, via a double height volume.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bo WongThis transition is less gradual in the spiral staircase, where black-stained treads switch to lime-washed ones just below the first-floor landing. Lime-washed timbers and white walls predominate on the first floor, which is brightened by many windows and a double-glazed skylight over the corridor. Doors are frameless and skirting boards integrated. The focus is downwards and outwards. To the North, a full-width operable lattice screen provides sun protection and privacy for both levels of the house.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Exploded AxonometricSave this picture!© Bo WongThe screen is made of Hardie Lattice, an economical off-the-shelf product appropriated to painted Duragal frames on simple pin hinges and rod stays. They, along with abundant quantities of face brick, painted concrete floors, integrated glazed brick splashbacks and plywood lend the home a rudimentary and relaxed feel. The client wanted to kick off his shoes, walk in off the beach, have his friends over without worrying too much. The surfaces have been designed with this in mind, as robust and hardy finishes.Save this picture!© Bo WongProject gallerySee allShow lessRed Wall Café / B336 Design GroupSelected ProjectsShangjia Maker Space II / HUA ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905615/blinco-street-house-philip-stejskal-architecture Clipboard Australia Blinco Street House / Philip Stejskal Architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905615/blinco-street-house-philip-stejskal-architecture Clipboard CopyAbout this officePhilip Stejskal ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFremantleAustraliaPublished on November 14, 2018Cite: “Blinco Street House / Philip Stejskal Architecture” 13 Nov 2018.

PocketSofasFlexformSofa – Soft DreamSave this picture!© Brandon ShigetaText description provided by the architects. This single-story home received a top-to-bottom renovation evoking the architect’s signature high-concept design approach exploring the relationship between vast space and light. The home features a living room, dining room, den, kitchen, loft, master suite, guest suite, powder room, and backyard with a barbecue and Jacuzzi.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaNestled in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, architect Dan Brunn’s private residence became an expression of his signature style. The house was transformed from a typical 1950s Los Angeles bungalow into a minimalist retreat. The remodeling process delicately balanced a nostalgic facade while transforming the interior spaces to accommodate present-day domestic activities with a clean, open-air feeling. Throughout the home, the architect’s design aesthetic is evident in his utilization of provocative spatial choreography and harmonious connections between light and volume. The sheer openness and expansion of the main entertaining space, in conjunction with the views to the backyard and the filtering skylight system, make the house a true California classic.Upon entry, there is a sudden sense of compression and expansion as the visitor is propelled into the home’s center. This dramatic gesture of arrival is further amplified by the compact foyer space that abruptly breaks free to uncover a soaring entertainment room and a living room with sunlit beams. The architect removed all the walls to open the floor plan and create an expansive entertaining room. This large-scale central space combines the living and dining rooms as well as the kitchen. Sewing together these areas into a single, seamless environment allows the free flow of air, light, and circulation.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaSeveral west-facing skylights were installed against the crown of the roof’s ridge beam to further open the home. This design element brings the outdoors into the living and dining areas with bold rays of sunlight. When light enters the room, dramatic diagonal lines of rectangular shapes form on the wall to evoke natural art. The skylights flood the room with cascading sunlight and extra ventilation.Save this picture!PlanA stone-colored rug outlines the living room. Modern furnishings with clean lines and neutral colors create an illusion of lightness to complement the open room. A light-grey sofa anchors the space to provide airiness and comfort, while two black leather side chairs provide added seating. A side table features a hand-woven base with walnut wood surface to soften the hard lines within the space. Beside the sofa are two knit poufs-one yellow, one grey-for casual relaxation on the floor. Brunn constructed the vibrant-colored wall art from a large sheet of maple-wood veneer plywood painted with bold acrylic paints. It depicts the world’s flags meshed together with two ribbon patterns to symbolize global harmony.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaDirectly across the living room is the dining area featuring a neutral color palette to maintain visual balance between spaces. The sleek, blonde-wood dining table is topped with white DuPont Corian to allow easy cleaning. The blonde-wood-framed chairs include black, 3-D knitted anthracite-mesh backs to provide extreme comfort and stacking ability. Nestled in the corner is Brunn’s bass guitar that he adorned with the same flag patterns as the painting. The furniture in both the living and dining rooms is minimal, to keep the space open and uncluttered.Brunn believes the kitchen is the heart of the home. Sleek, ultra-white custom-designed cabinets are made of back-painted Starfire glass adhered to baked-on lacquered fiberboard panels. The refined space offers easy maintenance and cleanup for messy cooking. A glass-top breakfast table and wood-and-mesh chairs sit in front of the kitchen’s bay window, which provides exterior views and abundant natural light. Hanging from above is a mirror-glass globe pendant to evoke a contemporary vibe.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaAbove the kitchen and below the skylights sits an inviting loft space cleverly accessible with a hidden ladder that retracts into the laundry room. Serving as a private sanctuary, the loft is filled with design books, old records, and a vintage 1978 Pioneer Hi-Fi stereo. The loft adds more height to the central living space, while remaining open to views below. Opening the ceiling necessitated the addition of a new wooden post, which the architect left as natural wood to add warmth and acknowledge the structural work done on the house. A thin glass railing, floating elegantly along the perimeter, encloses the loft while keeping the central living area visible. The ledge on the other side of the glass features the architect’s most prized possession- The BeatlesSave this picture!© Brandon ShigetaThe vast,open spaces continue in the master bedroom. White and neutral tones manipulate the area, along with a magenta-striped carpet and black Eames lounge chair to provide the only color accents. The master bathroom consists of large-format porcelain tile, blond-wood cabinets, and a glass-encased shower- all following the architect’s notion of the beauty of simplicity. A clerestory window stretches along the full length of the basin wall. The backlit mirror sheds glowing light into the space.Retractable glass sliding doors from the home’s central space create a grand welcome into the backyard. The shelf above the doors is framed in order to store various design objects, while hiding the curtain track. A colorful, 20-can series of limited-edition Andy Warhol real cans of Campbell’s Tomato Soup curiously draws the eye upward. A covered patio includes a sofa, lounge chairs, and coffee table for outdoor enjoyment. The backyard becomes an open spac used for entertainment and features a board-formed concrete kitchen with barbecue and whirlpool spa.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaProject gallerySee allShow lessBoqueria West 40th St. / Studio Razavi architectureSelected ProjectsEJM Terras II / Gálvez & Márton ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Flexform, VELUX Commercial, panoramah!®, Arco, Aster Cucine, CB2, Caesarstone, Calligaris, Crate & Barrel, DuPont, Dunn Edwards, EOOS, Eames, Elco Lighting, Grohe, Herman Miller, Ikea, Marvin, Modern Fan, Molteni & C, +7Pedrali, Tom Dixon, Escenium HAUS, Jenn-Air, Medicom Toy, Mitrani, Premier Flooring Solutions-7 Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Houses CopyHouses, Residential, Interior Design•Los Angeles, United States Architects: Dan Brunn Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Area: 2 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeDan Brunn ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsInterior DesignLos AngelesUnited StatesPublished on February 19, 2019Cite: “#9 Dream / Dan Brunn Architecture” 19 Feb 2019.

A canvas characterized by its rough texture, which arises from the aesthetic configuration created by the concrete block masonry. It is the skin of this house that seeks the balance between the material, the spatiality it contains and the ornament it exhibits. The work distributes its program in three levels, the first being composed of the garage area and the main access, the second of the social area, while the third level corresponds to the resting area with three bedrooms. The spatial organization is aimed at minimizing the impact on the terrain, taking advantage of the ascending sloping topography, which is manifested with a front facade of three levels and a rear of only two.Save this picture!© Max CoronelSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Max CoronelWith a simple and direct language, the architectural concept strived for a volume conceived to be functionally tailored to its inhabitants, with its spaces that adjoin the courtyard continuously through wide sliding doors, defining a space that opens to the garden – the barbecue. Likewise, a prism implanted in isolation from its surrounding environment allows the availability of permanent ventilation and lighting of the building. Taking advantage of the strength of its location, the house empowers the exterior and absorbs it, allowing the light to flow through the interior of each environment. The rest of the construction combines structural elements such as reinforced concrete walls and columns with cement blocks, which has been left bare, devoid of any type of treatment or subsequent coatings. Rather, taking advantage of the texture, the chromatic composition of the building was complemented by applying black colour on the cement. In search of a systematic contrast to the masonry, a natural wood veneer was applied as an unbalancing factor. The rest of the materiality of the project is defined by the translucent glassware framed with black aluminium carpentry that is used to bind it to the architectural texture. The interior design of Casa Moca shows a rational and comfortable distribution of the rooms, managing to determine the most logical route between them.Save this picture!© Max CoronelCarrying out this organization necessarily involves being clear about the master walls, which fully identify open spaces, this being a contemporary trend of interior design and minimalism by establishing a more open relationship between the different rooms of the house. In this way, the repertoire of materials has been simplified to the extreme, in order to achieve a modern environment that conveys simplicity. The floors have been paved with a light grey laminate, a tone that provides a slight contrast to the white of the walls and ceilings that enclose all the interiors, and at the same time, becomes the harmonizer with the chromaticity of the exterior of the house. And finally, the wood of all the carpentry is one of the attractions of the house, being used in a systematic way both in the doors and in the custom-made furniture.

However, the there were some glitches during the video conferencing session of the bench presided by the Chief Justice Of India. Last week, the Supreme Court had introduced court proceedings vide video conferencing to avoid the ‘people to people’ contact. It had also issued a slew of guidelines to streamline the functioning of courts via video conferencing during the COVID-19 lockdown. “All measures that have been and shall be taken by this Court and by the High Courts, to reduce the need for the physical presence of all stakeholders within court premises and to 4 secure the functioning of courts in consonance with social distancing guidelines and best public health practices shall be deemed to be lawful;The Supreme Court of India and all High Courts are authorized to adopt measures required to ensure the robust functioning of the judicial system through the use of video conferencing technologies; Consistent with the peculiarities of the judicial system in every state and the dynamically developing public health situation, every High Court is authorised to determine the modalities which are suitable to the temporary transition to the use of video conferencing technologies; The concerned courts shall maintain a helpline to ensure that any complaint in regard to the quality or audibility of feed shall be communicated during the proceeding or immediately after its conclusion failing which no grievance in regard to it shall be entertained thereafter. The District Courts in each State shall adopt the mode of Video Conferencing prescribed by the concerned High Court. The Court shall duly notify and make available the facilities for video conferencing for such litigants who do not have the means or access to video conferencing facilities. If necessary, in appropriate cases courts may appoint an amicus-curiae and make video conferencing facilities available to such an advocate. Until appropriate rules are framed by the High Courts, video conferencing shall be mainly employed for hearing arguments whether at the trial stage or at the appellate stage. In no case shall evidence be recorded without the mutual consent of both the parties by video conferencing. If it is necessary to record evidence in a Court room the presiding officer shall ensure that appropriate distance is maintained between any two individuals in the Court. The presiding officer shall have the power to restrict entry of persons into the court room or the points from which the arguments are addressed by the advocates. No presiding officer shall prevent the entry of a party to the case unless such party is suffering from any infectious illness. However, where the number of litigants are many the presiding officer shall have the power to restrict the numbers. The presiding officer shall in his discretion adjourn the proceedings where it is not possible to restrict the number. Justice Chandrachud had also conferred with HC Judges On Video-Conferencing & Web Hosting Of Proceedings. In September 2018, the Supreme Court held that the Court proceedings shall be live-streamed in the larger public interest. The Bench has said that appropriate Rules in that regard will be framed soon under Article 145 of the Constitution of India. Next Story

The Single Bench of Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani has issued notices to the Delhi Government as well as the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. It is submitted by the Petitioners that the subsequent FIR has been registered for the same chain of events for which the Petitioners have duly entered plea bargaining and consequent deportation orders have been issued by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate at Saket court. Petitioners have argued that they are being compelled to repeatedly face the same interconnected charges, which infringes upon their personal liberty. The petition says: ‘The instant case is a classic example of case wherein unsubstantiated allegations have been embellished and exaggerated with most of falsehood added to a grain of truth amounting to. Unless this Hon’ble Court protects the honour and dignity of the Petitioner by intervention at this stage, even his acquittal will not wipe out the ignominy and stigma caused by ordeal of facing criminal trial.’ It is the case of the Petitioners that the prosecution is further barred to proceed with a second FIR by the doctrine of double jeopardy enshrined under Article 20(2) of the Constitution. Petitioners have further argued that illegality of this nature will completely derail the investigation in accordance of which even subsequent prosecution may be liable to be questioned and struck down.
