This contemporary house reimagined by Dryden Architecture along with Rachel Halvorson exemplifies a harmonious integration of architecture, interiors, and landscape, tucked high on a hill in the woods of Nashville, Tennessee. The project team’s goal was to work with the bones of the existing house while still transforming it stylistically and aesthetically.

The home features two-story bay windows at the entry and exit, framing amazing panoramic city views like artwork. Large openings blur the line between interior and exterior. Continue below to see the rest of this spectacular home tour…

Open spaces flooded with light and stunning views are complemented by a plethora of finely crafted details: sliver views connecting public spaces, a refined take on a traditional steel stair handrail, wood paneling at select locations, a wood-clad fireplace framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, and an infinity pool with an edge that visually cascades into the city below.

This home is a prime example of how beauty and creativity can still take center stage through a process of adaptive reuse, not just through a new build.

Stunningly beautiful, and the choice of artwork is exquisite. The craftmanship on the stairs is remarkable. The only thing I don’t like is the use of the large slabs of marble in the kitchen, which I think retracts from the overall warmth of the home, making the kitchen seem “cold”.
