CONCRETE HOUSE ON THE HARPETH
This is one of the very first projects that had Nine12 Architects (it was nine12 design then) on the title block. We knew the client professionally and were extremely excited to get the opportunity to work with him on this beautiful and peaceful custom home on the Harpeth River.
The home was designed with efficiency in mind: from the insulated concrete walls and ceiling panels to the simple, open layout. A large open living space in the center of the house opens to the front yard and the views of the bluffs along the river. A spacious Master wing is located on one side and bedrooms are tucked away on the other.
The details and exposed materials are what we love most. Concrete floors were left throughout and the structural beams in the main living space are exposed and become a main feature. The home is all about a living space that flows seamlessly to the landscape around it.
