On the side of a hill overlooking the freeway and Centennial Park, with the Nashville Skyline in the distance, is a cluster of new contemporary houses. Before my trip to Nashville I did some searching for interesting architecture to visit while there. I came upon the “Bow House” by architect Ryan Thewes. It was named for the bow trusses which form the dramatic roof structure. In locating the house I found that it was part of a small group of similar homes at the end of a rather traditional neighborhood. I do not know who the other architects are, but there is an interesting variety of “Dwell” like houses in this enclave.
