Nashville area home builders know their best work becomes an intimate part of each
family’s story from the moment they walk a property and look at the views, to the discussions about how to transition from a nuclear family to caring for an aging parent. Home builders help buyers refine their dreams by bringing the abstract concepts of architecture and style down to a human scale that allows for input from families and design experts.
Christopher Architecture and Interiors is known for a commitment to both aesthetic and functional elegance. “We take every project very personally and invest our heart and soul into the design,” says the firm’s president, Chris Reebals. “We are passionate about design but also the fact that a residence is an expression of the owner’s life. When someone builds a house it reflects their values, their interests, their priorities. In order for our team to design well, we have to understand the personal nuances of each client.”
“Getting to know our clients is key,” says the architect. “We spend time with homeowners, walking the site, sharing a meal, visiting with children. Casual and formal time with our clientele provides insight into their lives and allows us to create a product tailored to their lifestyle. Understanding our clients, their wants, and needs is a priority in our design process. My experience has taught me that a team approach makes for the best product. For example, if I, as an architect, ignore the interior design when creating a scheme the end result is disjointed.”
Christopher Architecture and Interiors are represented by gorgeous homes across the United States as well as in such cities as Sydney, Australia. They do not use stock designs, but have signature approaches that offer a synergy with place and positioning. “Our design goal is to create a space that speaks to the client, resonates with the context, and evokes a sense of permanence or timeless elegance,” Reebals says.
