“Interesting contemporary take on English Arts & Craft. The white brick, simple massing, and the minimalist rake details give it a fresh feel. The interior photos suggest beautiful, classically proportioned rooms with restrained but confident detail.” – Jury member
This Nashville, Tennessee, home is a modern interpretation of an English country house. The design strived to create a home with a sense of transparency, offering great views and ample natural light. On the exterior, simple rooflines, masonry details, and fenestrations make for a contemporary nod to an English county house and to the revival architecture of the early 20th century. Inside, the open floor plan and Marvin Ultimate Casement windows pull natural light all the way to the center, creating bright and elegantly livable spaces.
