This house is situated in a coastal area and occupies a 1.000 m2 plot with a steep sloping from the road to the nice views, which do not match the best solar orientation. The house is situated at the top of the site, next to the access, freeing up a garden area open to the sea views. A compact volume pierced by four specialized—terrace, drying area, playground and garden—patios that provide cross ventilation, and optimal sun exposure and natural lighting which makes the best use of the slope to locate a basement floor with a living area, a kitchen, and a series of rooms that make up the “summer house” linked to the pool, while the first and second floors conform the “winter house”, both of them connected by two staircases.Save this picture!© José HeviaIn the summer house, the living room is configured as a large outdoor room under cover,protected from the sun and exposed to the sea breeze. In the winter house, a large bay balcony in the entrance level allows far views over the harbour, while the other rooms open to patios,avoiding the direct views to the neighbours.Save this picture!First Floor PlanA simple construction system is used, consisting of ceramic bearing walls, steel pillars and concrete slab floors and traditional local materials such as plaster on the façade painted white,favoring the reflection of light in the patios, and the bamboo on the porch of the bay balcony,easily replaceable and locally manufactured.Project gallerySee allShow lessPratt Explores the Importance of Cold War Era Pre-Fabricated Building SystemsEventBook Presentation & Architects ConferenceEvent Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/337077/cala-dor-house-flexo-arquitectura Clipboardcenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/337077/cala-dor-house-flexo-arquitectura Clipboard Houses ArchDaily Spain CopyHouses•Cala d’Or, Spain “COPY” CopyAbout this officeFLEXO ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCala d’OrMajorca and MinorcaSpain (territorial waters)HousesSpainPublished on February 27, 2013Cite: “Cala D’or House / Flexo Arquitectura” 27 Feb 2013.

Facing the lake in front, the building extends its space into the nature and captures the greenery into the room through its glass panels. To facilitate a better view, the designers raise the house one meter higher. At night, the glass box transforms itself into a luminous cube floating on the water. Save this picture!© Kuo-Min Lee“Space and Form”The rooms in the plan seem randomly scattered. However, all of the rooms center around a huge cube suspended from the ceiling in the lobby. As the rectangular cube extrudes along the ceiling,  and transforms into a floating pyramid in the sky, it invites direct sunlight into the space. Scattered around the open space at the lobby, the spherical lamps create an abstract cosmic atmophere. Save this picture!© Kuo-Min LeeProject gallerySee allShow lessAtkins Designs Striking Office Complex in GuangzhouArchitecture NewsSALVA46 Coliving in Barcelona / MIEL Arquitectos + STUDIO P10Selected Projects Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/532356/lightbox-hsuyuan-kuo-architect-and-associates Clipboard Lightbox / Hsuyuan Kuo Architect & Associates 2012 CopyHouses•Taipei City, Taiwan (ROC) Projects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/532356/lightbox-hsuyuan-kuo-architect-and-associates Clipboard ArchDaily Area:  1045 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Taiwan (ROC) Photographs Architects: Hsuyuan Kuo Architect & Associates Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeHsuyuan Kuo Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTaipeiTaipei CityHousesTaiwan (ROC)Published on August 05, 2014Cite: “Lightbox / Hsuyuan Kuo Architect & Associates” 05 Aug 2014.

Our clients wanted to build their dream house; a house that would be their definitive family home. It had to have an urban presence while having an open yet secure exterior space with sufficient privacy from the street. With a no expense to be spared mandate, the architect was given a large wish-list that included a 6-car garage and a 25m long pool.Save this picture!Concept SketchThe elevated plot sits 4m above the street level and is surrounded by dense residential development. The eventual solution comes from a reconciliation of inherent constraints with opportunities embedded within the site and program. A visually heavy base platform is expressed by slate-covered terraced planters. Two distinct cantilevered volumes form the visible massing and embracing wings of the house which are pushed to the urban set-back limits of the site.Save this picture!© Marc Tey PhotographyThe separated volumes are connected by a central circulation core. A three-sided courtyard is formed from the residual space between the volumes. A glass lift and see-through staircase that winds around the transparent shaft vertically connect the various programmatic elements. The exterior facade is cladded in beige & silver travertine and contrasted with black basalt stone. Horizontal aluminum fins provide sun shading and provide a modicum of privacy from the street and the adjacent properties.Save this picture!© Marc Tey PhotographyThe experience on entry into the subterraneous garage is private and cocooned from the exterior. The stone and materials within the garage are cave-like but the procession to the main entrance further in reveals textural changes in the architectural finishes, revealing smooth honed travertine walls and floors. The entrance foyer leads to a walk-in wine cellar and a large entertainment cum games room. Naturally, the entrance also leads one upwards to the next level, and the views expand outwards and upwards but are focused on the single Frangipani tree floating in the central courtyard.Save this picture!© Marc Tey PhotographyA vital role of this floating planter in the middle of the swimming pool is that also allows daylight and natural ventilation to the basement garage below. The main living and dining areas are on this first story level. Below are the garage and the entertainment den, where family and friends come together. The second story houses all the bedrooms and a private study. The top floor has an accessible roof deck and garden, providing a boundless, alfresco space that overlooks the surrounding neighborhood and has views of the city in the distance.Save this picture!© Marc Tey PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessBad Schörgau / Pedevilla ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHouse in Tarumi / Tomohiro Hata Architect and AssociatesSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Marc Tey Photography+ 37Curated by Fernanda Castro Share CopyAbout this officeWallflower Architecture + DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on April 06, 2018Cite: “Forever House / Wallflower Architecture + Design” 05 Apr 2018.

World-Renowned Cancer Researcher, Dr. Alan Ashworth, Joins Phoenix Molecular Designs Advisory Board

first_img Previous articleKhedira a reluctant savior for his new Bundesliga clubNext articleHammond, Monmouth visit Manhattan Digital AIM Web Support TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 4, 2021 Twitter Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Pinterestcenter_img World-Renowned Cancer Researcher, Dr. Alan Ashworth, Joins Phoenix Molecular Designs Advisory Board Twitter SAN DIEGO and VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Phoenix Molecular Designs (PhoenixMD), an industry leader in the development of precise cancer therapeutics focusing on first-in-class RSK kinase inhibitors, today announced the appointment of Dr. Alan Ashworth PhD, FRS to their Advisory Board as a Scientific Advisor. A visionary leader in the field of cancer therapy development, Dr. Ashworth is President of the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), a Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at UCSF and Sr. Vice President for Cancer Services with UCSF Health. He also served previously as the Chief Executive Officer of the Institute of Cancer Research in London, United Kingdom, as well as, the Director of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Center. “We are honored to have the opportunity to appoint such an authority in the field of genetics and oncology to our Advisory Board,” said Sandra Dunn, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of PhoenixMD. “Dr. Ashworth truly brings in-depth experience in the field of complex cancer biology. As we move through Phase 1b of our clinical trial relating to the development of our lead asset, PMD-026 targeting RSK2, the first purpose-built investigational drug specifically designed for triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), his guidance and insight will be invaluable. He joins our stellar team of advisors at a crucial time of growth as we move closer to therapies that have the potential to save thousands of lives.” Alan’s ties to RSK2 as a novel drug target date back to 2011 when he defined it as an essential kinase for TNBC, receiving the spotlight as the cover article in Cancer Discovery. His team identified RSK2 using unbiased functional screens in search of novel drug targets for specific breast cancer subtypes. Taking a similar approach, Dr. Dunn’s laboratory serendipitously and independently also identified RSK2 as a drug target for TNBC. Drs. Ashworth and Dunn then worked together to publish the validation of RSK2 as a functional target for TNBC in 2012. This research launched Phoenix Molecular Designs in 2012, the only company to have developed a first-in-class small molecule against RSK. Moreover, in the same article that highlighted RSK2 as a target for TNBC, Alan also identified PIK3CA as a target for luminal breast cancer. This subsequently led to Novartis developing Piqray, which in 2019 became the first FDA-approved PI3K inhibitor for breast cancer. Among Alan’s many other achievements, he was also a key member of the team that discovered the BRCA2 gene in 1995. BRCA2 is linked to an increased risk of breast, ovarian and other cancers and this discovery was followed by the identification of PARP inhibitors by Alan’s laboratory in 2005. The FDA has now approved four different PARP inhibitors to treat ovarian, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancer based on his groundbreaking work. Even today, Dr. Ashworth’s pioneering role stands out as he continues to develop new treatments for cancer using genetic principles. Due to his outstanding contributions, he has received a number of awards, many of which recognize the innovative and translational nature of his work and its clinical impact. “It is my great pleasure to join the Advisory Board of PhoenixMD. I admire their exemplary work into the role of RSK as a key signaling pathway in breast cancer and their commitment to developing PMD-026 to combat TNBC, a disease with a serious unmet medical need, ” said Dr. Ashworth. “I look forward to working with Sandra Dunn and the other expert members of her board to help with this critical work moving us towards new and effective cancer therapies.” Dr. Ashworth is an elected member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, the American Association of Arts and Sciences, the American Association of Cancer Research and the Royal Society (equivalent to membership of the National Academy of Sciences). Prizes include the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) Lifetime Achievement Award, the David T. Workman Memorial Award of the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation, and the Meyenburg Foundation’s Cancer Research Award, the Genetics Society Medal, the inaugural winner of the Basser Global Prize, and the Susan G Komen Brinker award. About Phoenix Molecular Designs PhoenixMD is a privately-held, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company designing precise cancer therapeutics and companion diagnostics by targeting kinases, a class of highly druggable enzymes to treat a wide range of oncology indications. PhoenixMD is focused on developing first-in-class inhibitors against RSK, an important drug target for cancer, heart disease, and inflammation. The company’s leadership team boasts previous expertise in developing FDA-approved and marketed drugs for breast cancer.
