HOUSE FOR MUSICIANS
Permits & Approvals
The addition to the rear of an early 1900's historic-district home in East Nashville creates a unified space for the kitchen, dining and entertaining areas and provides seamless access to the garden through over-sized glass sliding doors.
The new addition's interior space is largely defined by a new low-sloping roof. This element tucks neatly under the existing hip roof and provides generous, covered outdoor space for the homeowners.
The painted wood slats at the exterior was a key design element that distinguishes the new form from the existing home, while detailed and proportioned to harmonize with the original house's details. These white slats pay homage to the white trim used at the exterior of the existing home, helping the addition merge with the old but remain uniquely different.
