Architecture firm BARBERMcMURRY have recently completed a new house in Knoxville, Tennessee, for a young couple, their son and their dog.

Having previously lived in a downtown loft, the home owners wanted a home that would reflect the open interior spaces and ample views that their previous loft had.

The house sits in within the Holston Hills neighborhood, on a lot that was once overgrown. The design of the house draws inspiration from some of the mid-century modern houses in the neighborhood.

Upstairs, there’s a family room with views of the landscape. High ceilings keep the loft-like feeling that the owners wanted.
