SV Design Wins Best Multifamily Development for the Third Time in a Row
IIDA Tennessee chapter recognizes the interior design for mixed-use development Bells Bluff
SV Design recently won the “Best Of Mixed Use Multi-Family” award from the Tennessee chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) for the interior design of the Bells Bluff development in West Nashville. This is the third time in a row that SV Design has won in this category.
The awards program cited the design’s focus on “Wellness through Nature” with single-loaded buildings that face away from the parking lots, with stunning views of the rolling hills and Cumberland River, as well as walking trails throughout the property. They also cited the variety of unit design options and the fact that the property has “successfully attracted renters from the urban core to this rural serenity.”
The leasing office is designed for a modern lodge aesthetic with warm wood tones in lighting, furnishings, and architectural details like the open staircase that connects the leasing lobby and the clubroom, contrast with the light neutrals of the walls and floors. Expansive windows in the two-story space are a focal point to the natural vista. The three different color schemes used within the living units echo this style.
“We are excited to be recognized once again by IIDA Tennessee for our multifamily design expertise,” said Director of Interior Design Ginny Caldwell. “The site was the most challenging but also the most appealing feature of this project, and we enjoyed designing this community to highlight this beautiful setting.”
Developed by Charleston-based The Beach Company and completed in 2020, the 402-unit multifamily development is located off Charlotte Pike on 45 acres of sloping terrain alongside the Cumberland River and Bells Bend, an 800-acre nature preserve. It offers units from studio up to three bedrooms with two pools, a club room, a fitness center, a yoga room, multiple grilling/lounge areas, a game lawn, a dog park and dog spa, and a private walking trail with fitness stations.
