These issues include isolation and loneliness to fitness and active ageing. In this age of rapid changes in society, it is important that no section of our community is left behind.”“It is clear that the percentage of Limerick’s population aged 65 years or over will continue to increase over time and therefore, we must be ready to face the challenges that such an eventuality will bring to society. The Older People’s Council is at the forefront of these efforts locally,” said Mayor Galvin.

Japan will need to improve ahead of their next match against Ireland. When the slick handling comes off they look dangerous, particularly given their speed, but there were too many errors in this game and they lacked composure under high balls and restarts – something Ireland will surely have noted.Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageStar manFor Russia, Tagir Gadzhiev was a real menace in attack and defence, while Vladimir Ostroushko showed decent touches in midfield. The Japan back row – Michael Leitch, Pieter Labuschagne and Kazuki Himeno – got through a lot of work but in a performance littered with errors, it has to be Kotaro Matsushima. The winger was clinical when given opportunities, used his pace to good effect and became the first Japan player to score a hat-trick at a Rugby World Cup. Job done!Full house: Most of the crowd in Tokyo were bedecked in Japan’s red and white (Getty Images)The reactionJapan wing Kotaro Matsushima: “It is my first three tries as a Japanese player. We were able to connect with each other and the roar of the fans became our driving force.”Russia captain Vasily Artemyev: “Everyone could see we were playing at the same intensity as Japan. We were pushing them to the edges and we were getting some dividends. Maybe we could have scored a couple more penalties if we went for it but we chose to apply the pressure through our set-piece, but unfortunately, we didn’t get the result we wanted.”The TeamsJapan: William Tupou (Ryohei Yamanaka 70); Kotaro Matsushima, Timothy Lafaele, Ryoto Nakamura, Lomano Lava Lemeki; Yu Tamura (Rikiya Matsuda 67), Yutaka Nagare (Fumiaki Tanaka 61); Keita Inagaki (Isileli Nakajima 55), Shota Horie (Atsushi Sakate 75), Asaeli Ai Valu (Jiwon Koo 55), Wimpie van der Walt (Luke Thompson 61), James Moore, Michael Leitch (captain, Hendrik Tui 70), Pieter Labuschagne, Kazuki Himeno.Tries: Matsushima 12, 39, 69, Labuschagne 47.

William Tupou failed to take a high ball in the 22 and it bounced into the grateful arms of Kirill Golosnitskiy, who ran over for a simple early score.The tournament hosts led 12-7 by half-time; Kotaro Matsushima was the beneficiary of impressive offloading from his centres to cross twice (well, three times actually but one was rightly ruled out by the TMO for a knock-on).Dive time: Japan wing Kotaro Matsushima goes over for a try against Russia (Getty Images)Back-row Pieter Labuschagne gave his side some breathing room early in the second half as he ripped the ball in the tackle and broke clear for a try.Russia captain Vasily Artemyev then played a part in Japan’s bonus-point try in the 69th minute. Collecting a kick near his touchline in the 22, he kicked it infield where Japan had numbers and were able to spread the ball wide, with Matsushima on hand to get his hat-trick.You can watch Japan’s first try here…last_img

The 3,200 sq ft residence is located in the Crestwood Hills neighborhood of Brentwood, California, a post war development of modest mid-century homes. The project consists of the rebuilding of an existing building with a new second story wing. The new architecture compliments the existing residence and builds upon the original intentions of Quincy Jones and the other pioneers of this progressive neighborhood.Save this picture!© Art Gray PhotographyThe architecture is a direct result of the various conditions inherent within the site. The peculiar geometry of the second story volume is a result of the existing site conditions and the current building setback regulations. Openings to the views and the need for solid walls for shear and privacy were also factors that defined the building envelope.Save this picture!SectionThe building is low and unassuming at the street and in keeping with the scale of the neighboring homes. The residence opens to the courtyard with walls of glass. A series of bent, steel moment frames straddle the existing one story structure and are expressed in the new architecture. The folded planes of the walls and roof are an extension of the rolling topography of the hillside site. The folded planes are sheathed with interlocking metal panels. The interior is clad with wood, blurring the distinction between wall, ceiling and floor. Views are framed as the building projects outward to the city, the ocean and the neighboring Getty Center in the distance. Save this picture!© Art Gray PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessOrandajima House Community Centre / Martin van der Linden + Ayumu Ota + Yuko KawakitaSelected ProjectsBOX 298 Building / Andrade Morettin Arquitetos AssociadosSelected Projects Share Photographs Tigertail / Patrick Tighe Architecture “COPY” United Stateslast_img

The design strategy has been to maximise external space and to develop a building type that manifests the idea of “communality”. The resulting “cluster” model places a court at the heart of the site beneath which the communal facilities are located and, around which the six houses are laid out. However, the main outlook of the houses is outwards into the gardens, rather than facing inwards around the court. Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe scheme allows for a continuous perimeter of communal gardens which offer varied growing conditions and atmospheres. The gardens should provide an excellent habitat for local flora and fauna. As a result, there is a strong feeling of the project being intrinsically linked to its land.  Both the plot that surrounds the perimeter of the project and the inner court emphasise this bond to the site. Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe four 3-storey houses are clad in untreated vertical timber boards, the two 2-storey houses in brick. “Landscape” timber framed windows allow oblique views within the site. The timber elevations to the court will use wider boards and planted battens. This, more rudimentary, detail will caste strong shadows and be more tactile than the smoother outward elevations. Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe philosophy is to reduce the household’s collective impact on the environment in the construction of their homes as well as in their daily lives. The performance of the building fabric – insulation, air tightness, and heat recovery ventilation – plays a vital role with low-cost and proven technology. The only renewables are solar thermal panels. The embodied energy of construction has been considered in every respect: recycling waste material from the demolition; timber superstructure; timber cladding; timber fenestration and partial green roofs.Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe houses share a palette of simple, robust, contemporary materials.  Each house has been designed to have a generous provision of natural light whilst ensuring as far as possible that homes do not overlook one another. In fact, the subtle integration of design measures to ensure an agreed level of privacy has been essential to HHbR’s approach in interpreting their client’s needs. Yet, compared to typical terraced houses where the public sphere ends at the front door, it is clear on entering 1-6 Copper Lane that, although defined, boundaries between public and private space have been extended beyond the norm. Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuIt is evident that HHbR have sought an architectural manifestation of communality in their design of 1-6 Copper Lane and created an ideal way of shared living. As Ken Rorrison of HHbR observes. Save this picture!Section“This project is not about creating ideal bespoke houses for six individual clients, but making a collective whole that is bigger than the sum of its parts. Generally, the houses are all made from the same agreed components. Their variation is derived in response to their differing location in relation to their immediate and surrounding neighbours.” Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuFrom a housing crisis perspective, Simon Henley describes how the figures are in favour of more co-housing: “We are interested in how building typologies can evolve to accommodate changing attitudes and behaviour. The need for new housing that is affordable in this country is at a critical stage. We need to rethink how people can make the most of their homes. As designers, architects can have a fundamental role in creating accommodation that responds to new ways of life. In major cities, like London, financial pressures affect how people think about space but recent phenomena like working from home and the need to reconnect communities have created a call for new housing types. We are very pleased that the 1-6 Copper Lane project gave us an opportunity to think about what housing can be whilst reflecting on these and many other issues like the desire for sustainable living.”Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessKäpäcläjui Indigenous Training Center / Entre Nos AtelierSelected ProjectsHouse in Ávila / Claudia Olalla GilSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Stoke Newington, London, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.
