Each of the designers is assigned a room to decorate in the home. Land Innovations is serving as the developer of the property. “Você, one of LI’s current projects under construction, is one of the most innovative single-family home communities in Middle Tennessee and exemplifies our philosophy of working with the existing natural beauty of a property,” says LI partner Rob Pease. Você—which means “voice” in Italian—sits on 61 acres that was the home place of country music icon Eddy Arnold until 2008. It was the place where he retreated to his family and found inspiration after being on the road. While hiking on the ridge at the property in the late1950’s, Eddy discovered a new singing style that would help create what became known as the “Nashville Sound.
“In keeping with Arnold’s wishes, his grandson, Shannon Pollard, and the Land Innovations team have partnered to preserve the natural beauty and historic character of the property,” says LI partner, Frank Horton. Land Innovations created a plan to preserve in excess of 60% of the trees at Você.
Architect for the project is Carson Looney a founding principal of Looney Ricks Kiss. Looney has received more than 415 regional, and national residential design awards.
