Nashville Pool House Remodel

Chuck and Holly Paetz have a beautiful home in South Nashville. I have worked with Chuck in the Real Estate industry for years even partnering on many deals to play to our strengths. He approached me about helping them to remodel an existing garage and workshop into an in law suite for Holly’s parents. The unit was to one side of their pool and also had a restroom, storage, and a shed. I love anything to do with water themed design, and the Paetz’s have been long time personal colleagues and friends so of course I was elated to be their Architect.

Minerva Avenue Speakeasy – Buchanan Arts District Nashville

We started the project looking at the neighborhood, an eclectic mix of Old and New – one of Nashville’s many neighborhoods that is undergoing tremendous growth and gentrification. The property itself, ripe with the smell of old beer, marijuana, and garbage had beautiful “bones”. It just needed a little tender love and care.

WKND Hang Suite Nashville Remodel

WKND Hang Suite – Nashville Bar Remodel

A repeat client reached out to us to help them bring more revenue into their Weekend “WKND” centric business night club model. We worked through visioning with two of the partners about how to convert an existing back room of the building into a weekday space, that could service business professionals hoping to avoid Nashville’s scary rush hour traffic, double as space for private events, AND transition back into the original weekend bar business model. We were also asked to Phase this project to include a New outdoor patio area in the rear of the building that could be accessed from the alley and back of house.

We suggested this client utilize our Creator Service Package to get a comprehensive feel for the space before embarking on the remodel. This service package is a less expensive option than Full Scale Architectural Construction Documents that can give our clients the vision and direction to take a space and phase construction as desired. If major building components are not being modified and codes requirements are still being met, then a Southern Athena Service Package could be the best Architectural route to take for your budget. We cover Architectural Phases through Design Development with the Creator Package.

Pioneer Gentlemen’s Barber in the Gulch

Nashville’s southern gentlemen and ladies do not want to miss the newest addition of a distinctive men’s grooming service provider, Pioneer Gentlemen’s Barber in the Gulch. We were excited to help Pioneer with their commercial lease and business startup. This throwback to the luxurious atmosphere and traditional style only created by a classic barbershop, is just another example of how we are helping new businesses as they step up, and into, hot market territories in our city. Tom Gaudreau, Pioneer’s proprietor, is a shining example of the Barbershop’s namesake.
Tom reached out to me when he first starting digging into the process of leasing Commercial Real Estate in Nashville. We looked closely at the different areas around town that would be a fit for his concept and we knew right away that it would take a lot of guts in this market to develop his dream into a reality.
Elizabeth Gatlin, Broker
While researching the demographics of different sites (Part of our Commercial Leasing Tenant Package), the Gulch was discovered to be a gold mine for the concept. The Icon Building and Pine Street Flats respectively are comprised of 80% and 70% men and the area as a whole has over 66% male tenancy ratios, much higher than every other area in town. Watch out gentlemen, the single ladies may be taking notes!

Pine Street Tenants - Male

Pioneer will be one of the first businesses opening in the Gulch with grooming products and services tailored specifically toward men. Located at 408 11th Avenue South, highlighted items on their menu include: classic & contemporary cuts, hot lather shaves, facials, shoe shines and more. The best part, the atmosphere - sitting in a classic, completely refurbished American made barber chair, there is nothing quite like the poetry of a barbershop and enjoying the service and company of a timeless experience.
