  • First Creek at Austin Phase 1 has been awarded a Keep Knoxville Beautiful Orchid Award in the New Architecture category!
 
JAI served as the architect on this @kcdccommunity, which is located less than one mile east of downtown Knoxville on the 23-acre site of the former Austin Homes. The site is being redeveloped over multiple phases to increase available affordable housing units, add public outdoor spaces, and provide a link between east Knoxville and downtown.
 
Phase 1 includes 105 living units across various densities ranging from townhomes to mid-rise apartments. The development also features a community room, fitness center, structured parking, and a playground.

  • Check out the February issue of @vipknoxville for a feature on this historic riverfront home, including its new JAI-designed pool house. 

Featuring quarry cut fieldstone, slate roofing and intricate wood trim details, the pool house perfectly complements the historic home. Link in bio for more information.

  • This moody January evening has us dreaming of a Morningside Room happy hour. 

Photographer Aaron Ingram flawlessly captured the mood of this 1920’s inspired bar and lounge space at RT Lodge. JAI was the architect of record and worked closely with interior designer Stephanie Sabbe to bring the design and vision to reality. Described by @spiritsbusiness as an elegant cabin retreat that is “an adventurous cocktail lover’s dream,” the new space was designed to elevate and blend seamlessly with the previously JAI designed RT Lodge venue.

  • Congratulations to KCS and the Adrian Burnett Elementary School community on today's ribbon cutting! We’re proud to have been a part of bringing this dream to reality. @knox_schools @abescardinals⁠
⁠
The new 94,000 sf school features 34 classrooms, 2 special education classrooms, a 7,100 sf gymnasium (which the previous school did not have) and stage, library, music and art rooms, with the capacity for 800 students. Careful planning and coordination allowed construction of the new school to occur adjacent to the existing school, which maintained full operation during construction. The next phase will include demolition of the existing 1976 school (originally intended to be a temporary structure), site work, parking, and a car drop off loop and canopy as depicted in this rendering.⁠

  • All the carefully crafted details are coming together on this Arcadia Peninsula residence!

We always enjoy a site visit to this beautiful home. Millwork has been underway, including a highly detailed circular entryway cove that seamlessly transitions into built-in bookcases in the barrel-vaulted living room. Stone masonry is also nearly complete on the exterior covered porch, overlooking Ft. Loudon Lake.
