GABLE HOUSE (2014-2015)

New Single Family Residence, Belle Meade TN
Eventually we settled on the concept of a glass pavilion holding up a brick house in the form of three gable 'hats'.  We deployed the gable profile as an exterior object and an interior vessel, stripped of irony, in order to abstract it back to a simple surface. Views through the home connect front to back and side to side. Natural light enters each room through multiple openings, animating interior spaces with varying qualities of light.  An oblique, inclined path extends from the street, through the house, below a steel and wood arbor, towards a blue stone terrace beyond. The home is a moment along this path that burrows into the ground at one end and hovers above it at the other.  The gable and the garden, ground this home into its streetscape.  Inside and out, the home aims to reveal what is familiar and unique about its site, context and construction..
