Nearly 60 years later and after 58 years perfect attendance at the Rotary Club of Apopka, Nelson gave a Paul Harris Fellowship in honor of his great-grandson Reed Arnold Knudsen. Paul Harris Fellowships fund Rotary International work around the world and are part of the funding of the 100-year-old The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. Nelson, one of the family members that operated Nelson’s Roses in Apopka for decades, even facilitated the gathering and delivery of over 10,000 pounds of books to Ghana, Africa in 1995 after he discovered the lack of educational opportunities there. He worked over a decade at the club’s Apopka Fair and flipped thousands of pancakes at the club fundraiser held at football games. He initiated an auction at the club. Nelson has emulated Rotary’s motto Service Above Self as he participated in every club service project physically possible. In 1997, he was named Rotarian of the Year for the entire five-county district and of the club in 1995. At the Apopka meeting April 13, 2017, young Reed was named a Paul Harris Fellow (PHF). His great grandmother Floride C. Nelson pinned Reed while his mother Linda Knudsen, Nelson’s Insurance, held him. His certificate was presented by club president and PHF Deborah Perez, a club member since 20 October 20, 2011.Earl’s son and Reed’s proud grandfather, PHF Bryan Nelson, former Florida State Representative and current Orange County Commissioner, has been a Rotarian since November 1, 1982. Bryan Nelson, owner of Nelson’s Insurance in Apopka, proudly watched the presentation. Of course, the toddler thought the box the pin came in was the best part of the luncheon.Rotary International brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.

House of voids is located in a gated community in urban Bangalore. The site, 50ftX100ft with the shorter side along the road faces south. The most prominent element of the house is a 6’ deep verandah/balcony around the son’s bedroom on the south and south eastern side at second floor level. The deep-set balcony was a response to the harsh south sun and privacy from the road.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe client aspired to build a house that would be more than just a place to live in or a statement to make. For him, it was more of a legacy that he would leave behind for the generations to come. While keeping his aspirations in mind, the architecture narrative was built by shaping the voids both internally and externally, rather than starting with a form or geometry in mind. We scooped out masses on the south and south east side resulting in deep set balconies which compositionally balanced the stoic white walls to which it was anchored to. The voids were then articulated further by cladding the cantilever balcony edges with steatite (soap stone) and a series of sliding-folding teak wood louver shutters. These two elements also pronounced the horizontality of the verandah.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe teak ceiling comes all the way to the edge of the building terminating with steatite stone cladding, further emphasizing the void under the deep cantilevered slabs. The poise induced by the light filigree like wooden screen across the south and south east edge and the cantilevered slab anchored to the walls on the south west and eastern side, stood in contrast to the fragility brought in by resting the south east corner of the balcony over a circular column. This strategy helped us in anchoring the eye to the void below the loggia and creating a sense of balance between the solid and void.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSpatial planning of the house was primarily dictated by Vastu (ancient Indian science of orientation and spatial planning in Architecture) and the linearity of the site. Vastu mandated for an entry to the house from the NE (3rd quadrant of the plot) part of the house. This prompted us to leave a good 10’ wide space at the ground floor which was landscaped with a strip of tropical plants all along the eastern side.  The House was designed from inside out, scooping out volumes intermittently, thereby creating these double height public spaces on either side of the central corridor. The large expanse of veneer clad false ceiling at the first-floor level unifies these spaces under a single element.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JEach member although part of a close-knit family, has their own space within the house and the bedrooms opening up to their semi open space creating a world within a world for each member. We strived to achieve a balance between the austerity of white walls and the visually rich texture of timber and stone creating simple spaces that would always be. Devoid of embellishments, the architecture and interior expresses strong and clean lines.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JProject gallerySee allShow lessRenovation of SMOORE Headquarters Industrial Park / CM DesignSelected ProjectsHerschel Supply China Office / LinehouseSelected Projects Share KH Aircon Solutions Private Limited “COPY” Houses CopyHouses•Bangalore, India Projects Divya Ethirajan, Pramod Jaiswal Landscape: BetweenSpaces, Khalid Pasha Architects: BetweenSpaces Area Area of this architecture project Structural Consultant: Area:  1020 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 Guruprasad Kalkura India Year:  ArchDaily Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/944629/house-of-voids-betweenspaces Clipboardlast_img read more
