This residence is located in Nashville, Tennessee on a previously developed inner city property. The goal of our clients was to create a traditionally styled home that incorporated as many “Passive” Sustainable Ideas as possible to minimize energy and water use.
Additionally, Indoor Air Quality was maximized by using no/low VOC materials and exceptional air conditioning/heating systems and filtration. The design also incorporates an “Active” Solar Panel PV System that generates 4.2 Kilowatts of electricity. The home received an Energy Star rating of 36 HERS and has received LEED Platinum Certification.

The HingeHouse, designed by Maryann Thompson Architects and fabricated by Acorn Deck House Company, is open and flexible. The wings of the home are customizable based on need and connected by a central “hinge,” which essentially becomes an outdoor living space. The featured HingeHouse has two wings of living space and a hinge that includes an outdoor fireplace and sitting area.
