Modern Residence for a Professional Couple

Building Area: N/A

Date of Completion: N/A

Type: New Construction

Location: Knoxville, TN

Budget: N/A

Challenge: Design a three bedroom modern suburban residence
for a professional couple and their dogs.

Solution: This design draws upon principles of the modernist
movement while providing a material palette appropriate for its East Tennessee
setting. Cast-in-place concrete, hardwood siding, and stacked stone comprise
the majority of the exterior veneer. The plan is organized in a slight
“U” shape while the home is oriented to maximize views from the living,
dining, and master suite. The majority of the glass facades for the house
face the private backyard while the approach / entry is expressed as a
more solid composition with strategic slices removed to offer glimpses
of the home’s interior and yard beyond.
