Hayward added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Wales and it was an honour to coach my country.“As I have always said from day one, the team comes first and upon reflection of the last campaign with Wayne we felt it was best for me to step aside.“When I took the role last year I wouldn’t have planned to be leaving as the squad prepare to start the new international season, I believe it is the right decision for myself and the squad as they enter a new campaign.“I would like to wish Wayne and the squad all the best going forward and I will be fully supporting them.” Gone: Byron Hayward is no longer Wales defence coach (Getty Images) Wales kick off their Autumn Nations Cup campaign against Ireland on Friday, but will do so without defence coach Byron Hayward who has left his role with immediate effect.Hayward joined Wayne Pivac’s backroom team last year, but has left his role by mutual agreement. The incumbent coaching team will manage the defence for the upcoming games, Wales say.Head coach Pivac said: “I would like to thank Byron for all his hard work with Wales and thank him for his honesty in recent meetings. I have worked alongside Byron for six and a half years, he is a dedicated coach that has had great success in his career.“On reflection of the last campaign it was mutually decided that the best way forward for Wales and for Byron is for him to step down from his role.“I, on behalf of the squad and management, would like to wish Byron all the best for the future.“In the short-term, for the upcoming four matches, the existing coaching team will manage the defence based on the foundations already put in place. We will then look to replace Byron on a full-time basis with an announcement in due course.”last_img read more

Koya House / Alain Carle Architecte

The site is part of a real estate development on the approaches to the town of Saint-Sauveur in the Laurentians. This area is in Montréal’s second ring of outlying communities, where the occupants have chosen to settle to combine a lifestyle in a natural setting (in the mountains) with the conveniences of a small regional town. They have also chosen to make their project multigenerational, by allocating spaces for grandparents and their children. There is thus a temporal relationship, which poses an interesting problem for the design of this residence’s spaces. The architect is interested in changing the nature of the program, the family composition, and the residents’ location in the spaces that are bound to change over time within the complex.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThe project instead revolves around this temporal relationship, by structuring a mode of implementation related to the topographical features rather than to a logic of single-family row housing, typical of suburban areas. The project’s morphology materially distinguishes the more permanent elements of the residence, in concrete, from the more ephemeral components in wood. Like a sculptural bas-relief, the main traffic axes on the site become the two axes of the composition of the complex.Save this picture!Facade 1Save this picture!Facade 2Different concrete retaining walls, landings, and transitional stairways install a new topography on the site, a conclusive structuring for what happens next. Deep geothermal boreholes “anchor” the composition in sustainability and address the energy needs metaphorically rather than in strictly technical terms.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThree wooden volumes are then deposited on the exterior of this new topography to accommodate the changing nature of the program. They are cantilevered on the concrete structures, in an unstable situation, and point respectively in opposite directions. Thus, this complex is detached from a conventional composition of the suburban single-family home, which often has a very distinct expression between the front and rear facades, to the detriment of the sides. Maison Koya instead seeks to establish a more open relationship with the site in the broader sense. The morphology here instead attempts, by multiple sawtooth patterns and small outdoor subspaces, to establish a diversified reading of the landscape, regardless of the structure of the lots or a single landscape component.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauSave this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThe idea of preferring a single point of view on the landscape (as the dominant observer) seems to attest to a recurring architectural problem, the outcome of thinking that favors the building as an “object”. In this perspective, the spaces are designed in the absence of reality as it is offered, in all its ambiguity and impurity, legitimizing a stylistic (i.e. canonical) approach instead of an approach based on the alterity of the form. Once again, the issue is not to work with ambiguity for the sake of ambiguity, to make it a “style” per se, but rather to accept the share of alterity offered by the infinite configurations of reality. Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThere are multiple accesses to the building without a specific hierarchy. In continuity with the landscape, these accesses have a fluid relationship with the lower spaces, where the differentiation of the building’s internal traffic system seeks to engage a non-hierarchical relationship with the landscape (see the typically suburban context of the neighboring structures).Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauSave this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauOnly a central space situated at the intersection of the three wood structures constitutes a place of convergence for the three generations inhabiting the complex. This metaphorically is the meeting place, a “public place” materially inscribed in the permanence of the mineral structure. This is the founding place of the complex, inscribed in movement. This possibility of moving between the internal and external parts of the building engages a type of open use, a possibility of reconfiguration of the occupations of the spaces over time as if each of the three structures could be reconfigured according to the changes of use.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauIn a certain way, the essence of the project resides in the relationship between the necessity of creating a temporality for every built structure, of inscribing the concept of space in time, or at least in anticipation of time.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauProject gallerySee allShow lessInfinity Residential Building / Koichi Takada ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHair Salon in New York / BoNDSelected Projects Share Alain Carle Lead Architect: Save this picture!© Raphael Thibodeau+ 24Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952690/koya-house-alain-carle-architecte Clipboard “COPY” Houses Area:  696 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952690/koya-house-alain-carle-architecte Clipboard Projects Koya House / Alain Carle ArchitecteSave this projectSaveKoya House / Alain Carle Architecte CopyAbout this officeAlain Carle ArchitecteOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaint-SauveurOn FacebookCanadaPublished on December 08, 2020Cite: “Koya House / Alain Carle Architecte” 07 Dec 2020.

The owners of this house maintained a “nomadic” lifestyle so their stays in Ecuador were short and sporadic. The space they inhabited during these visits was a small 65m2 suite, in which they had a room with a full bathroom and a multifunctional space that included a “bedroom” for their two daughters. After the lockdown, the family decided that their stays should be longer and that space should better allow them to perform their daily activities.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Jag StudioThe commission. The specific request was to expand their existing house for social areas, include comfortable and independent bedrooms for the daughters, and take advantage of the view of the site. As a special requirement, the work had to start immediately and had to be built in no more than three months.The idea. “We thought about an industrially prefabricated piece that blends well with the environment and subtly sits on the ground, attaching itself to the existing construction.”Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe natural environment is understood as an envelope of the building which is placed over the slope overlooking the valley. There is no soil disturbance nor vegetation degradation.The new piece is manufactured and installed quickly while the intervention in the existing building is prompt and efficient. Once these processes are finished, all the furniture and paneling required for each space will be installed.Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe project. A system of metal channels supported by two porticoes is proposed. These channels work as the structure for both the floor and the roof which is thermally insulated and allows for vegetation to grow. This structure requires a minimal foundation, which allows almost no soil disturbance and very little time for its manufacturing and assembly.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!Section B-B’Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe three openings of this structure are covered with tempered glass. Floor and ceiling elements frame the view and allow the nature of the environment to surround the space. The existing vegetation generates enough privacy to maintain transparency around the entire perimeter. Save this picture!© Jag StudioAt the same time, the walls of the front façade of the existing construction are eliminated to create a space that links to the new construction. This space is a series of regular modules build with plywood panels that run from end to end to generate storage, decorative surfaces, as well as a permeable and semi-transparent screen towards the bedrooms. Five sliding panels of the same material are installed at the front of this furniture and can be placed anywhere according to the needs of the users.Save this picture!© Jag StudioA single piece of furniture is placed in the center of the new space. Towards the living room, this piece of furniture is a metal element that contains storage space and a module in which the stove and the television are embedded. Towards the dining room, this element contains the kitchen while the material changes to plywood paneling and stainless-steel surfaces. Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe kitchen consists of one module, which contains all the appliances and cabinets, as well as an island that works as a countertop and a dinette. This central piece of furniture allows for fluid and continuous circulation throughout the space, and for all the installations to be centralized inside this piece.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!© Jag StudioRegarding the intervention in the existing construction, the bedrooms and bathrooms are configured by light paneling made of plywood and metal sheets. This paneling contains thermal acoustic insulation to improve comfort in bedrooms and bathrooms. Within these areas, there is placed a single piece of furniture that contains a desk, storage space, and a murphy bed to take advantage of the internal space of the bedrooms.The house has an underfloor heating system in the social area and kitchen to maintain comfortable temperatures in the space without sacrificing the transparency of the facades.Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe work was completed in three months and ready to be inhabited. No vegetation was damaged, and no material was wasted. All material that could be reused from the demolition of the façade was sorted for later usage and the rubble was used to improve the ground in areas surrounding the building. Doors and windows were also carefully stored. The house has a septic tank for wastewater, which makes it independent from the sewage system, and a stormwater system that improves the drainage of rainwater in the surroundings.Save this picture!© Jag StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessSou Fujimoto, AMDL Circle, Alvisi Kirimoto: Discover the Internships and Lectures of…Lecture SeriesMultifunctional Furniture for a Flexible Environment: Steelcase Flex Active FramesArticles Share CopyAbout this officeRAMA estudioOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionSustainabilityOn FacebookEcuadorPublished on May 31, 2021Cite: “Mirador House / RAMA estudio” [Casa Mirador / RAMA estudio] 31 May 2021.
