Modern Architecture In Nashville

Modern Architecture In Nashville

When I rounded up some of the new high-rise projects coming down the pike that would be changing the Nashville skyline soon enough, there was a big one I neglected to mention: the Virgin Hotel planned for Music Row, scheduled to open next fall. 

Virgin Hotels just shared a first look at the design for that new Nashville location (see the image above), and, not that we’d expect anything else, but it’s a decidedly modern aesthetic. Mixed in with all the historic buildings in that area, it’ll certainly stand out — and that means some people will love it, some people not so much.

Modern architecture is as much a passion for some as historic architecture is for others, and in light of this upcoming addition to Nashville — and since I took a look at some historic homes not too long ago — I wanted to look modern this week.

Here, a few homes with a more modern-leaning aesthetic on the market now across Nashville:

1907B Truett Ave.,



It’s the details that really make this new East Nashville build stand out, from the woodwork on the windows when you first walk up to prominent ceiling beams, unique bathroom tile work and a sleek, white-and-wood kitchen.

709 44th Ave N.,



The Nations a.k.a. Historic West Town continues to grow, and along with updated historic homes, we’re seeing a lot of modern-looking new construction, like this 3-bed, 2 1/2 bath. The rooftop terrace: a particularly attractive bonus.

1703A (or 1703B) 14th Ave S.,

Nashville, TN


Modern lines aplenty with these townhomes in Belmont/Edgehill, each with 3 beds and 3 1/2 baths over more than 2,800 square feet. Maybe the most modern-cool/eye-grabbing touch: the wood-enclosed outdoor living area replete with stylish modern fireplace — a spot for entertaining you can likely take advantage of year-round.

112 Forrest Valley Ct.,



This one isn’t a new home — it was built in the mid-‘90s — but its modern architecture still makes a bold statement, and with some sleek updates to the interior, you’d have a full modern masterpiece in the middle of a woodland wonderland (nearly five acres of land on the west side of town).

{mls: 1580366}

206 Hicks Rd.,



Into the idea of living in a neighborhood designed with that modern aesthetic? This 3-bed, 2 1/2 bath home is tucked in the cozy Woodside Development off of Hicks Road, and it’s one of 10 uniquely designed and built homes by architect and builder Moshen Malakouti. You can see from the front that the home has immense modern flair, and it continues through the interior, from custom window designs to sleek fixtures. The backyard, landscaped with Japanese maples and crepe myrtles up a secluded hillside: total oasis.

Any of these homes catching your eye? Have something else with a modern aesthetic in mind? I'd love to help you find your new home -- just reach out.
