Nashville, Tennessee

Nestled among a grove of trees, the design for this new 2,600+ sf residence seeks to preserve its site by breaking into two boxes that slide between existing mature trees.  The cantilevered upper level creates covered outdoor living space and covered driveway entry into the house.  It also minimizes impact on the site by reducing footprint that would damage surrounding tree roots.  Manipulation of the form of the house provides for solar shading from southern and western exposures, covered porches, and cross ventilation in all spaces.
