Mediterranean Retreat

City of Forest Hills, Nashville/TN

Wrapping a string of rooms around a central exterior saltwater pool provides this home the feeling of a private retreat for an artist/professor and doctor. Long views open up across the courtyard from opposite rooms to create a sense of expansiveness and intimacy. Deep plaster walls and strong simple arches lend rhythm and grace to the interior order. A courtyard scheme such as this also provides natural ventilation in Spring and Fall. Lush gardens and a running stream define the landscape. A koi pond quietly welcomes guests at the front door entrance.
