Nestled into the a gently sloping hillside in Forest Hills, this classically modern residence uses traditional plaster, stone and steel windows to establish a timeless sophistication that strives to outlast any style for many years to come. Utilizing the natural topography, the guest house and pool terrace bench the hillside with careful planning and engineering to create an integrated retaining wall underground. The rear of the house invites the natural woodland setting inside with large expanses of glass.
Tennessee limestone provides a material indigenous to Middle Tennessee. The compact floorpan is open yet defined by three primary forms, organizing public and private zones within the circulation of the plan. Slate roofs complete the roof surfaces with yet another material familiar to historic references within the region. Architecture, interiors and landscape will integrate the house with the site in a seamless manner. Completion is expected by Summer of 2020.
