From the architect. Responding to the client’s desire for a home that would stand out from its site as a sculpture in the landscape, Nashville House provides an opportunity to design a modern home in a city with a history of traditional architecture.  Follow the break for more photographs of this house by Kanner Architects.

The vivid white form eases itself into the natural site with the help of wood panel cladding. Situated on a steeply sloping site, through strategic programming, the house’s vertical structure belies its lean, horizontal appearance. The top two living levels are cantilevered over the lower two containing the home theater and garage. The placement of a porte-cochere directs visitors up the slope and drops them among the two main levels of the house.

The master bedroom, contained in the upper-most level along with the library/study and a second bedroom, overlooks the living room below. Through an expansive wall of glass and trees beyond, it receives a view of downtown Nashville.

The glass box with the guy standing in it looks really cool and well detailed.

Isn't alot of dust and debri(sp?) going to gather where the wood floor edge almost meets the glass.

Nice house. Needs furniture, lights and plants outside

kj · December 01, 2010

its beautiful but...
(and i hate it when people gripe and complain about this...)
i was really looking forward to plans. its such a beautiful home that plans need to solidify its impression in my brain

up_today_arch · December 01, 2010

Good style... but from outside it looks like resort...
