Architect's Challenge Showdown: Inspiring Southern projects

Let’s head down south and see what this region of the country has brought to us in the Architect’s Challenge Showdown!

We’ll start with a traditional/contemporary hybrid. This residential remodel/addition to a 1929 Tudor Revival home replaced all the single-pane steel windows. With few exceptions, existing rooms were preserved in their original configuration. The new work honors the old, yet brings the house up to cutting-edge standards.

The South has an abundance of traditional houses that sometimes need a few upgrades (like new windows and doors!) to live in this modern age. Here are two that are very different in size but equally beautiful.

Located in a historic neighborhood in downtown Nashville, this infill home was designed and built after the family’s previous home burned. The project includes a 3700-square-foot house with a detached 1200-square-foot garage and studio structure. The main level consists of three large, open living spaces that radiate off the central kitchen. Upstairs you will find a vaulted master suite, a guest suite, and a child’s bedroom with a reclaimed barn wood climbing wall up to an attic loft.

Situated in the rolling countryside of the North Carolina foothills, this private estate residence is new construction designed in the Classic Revival style. The project was designed with particular attention to proper proportion and detail. The building’s primary function is the hosting of charitable events and fundraisers for various causes. The home and grounds also serve to educate visitors about local culture and history.

There are also some beautiful contemporary homes down South!

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the residence overlooks a mountain lake with expansive mountain views beyond. The design ties the home to its surroundings and enhances the ability to experience both home and nature together. The entry level serves as the primary living space and is situated into three groupings; a great room, a guest suite and a master suite. A glass connector links the master suite while creating space for terrace and garden areas.

On a small lot in Austin, Texas, the architect used large window walls to incorporate the entire site by expanding the visual perception of the rooms beyond the exterior walls.
