Voce (Vo-chay) is an exceptional residential neighborhood that retains and embraces the natural beauty of the land, fosters varied and creative architectural expression and leaves a permanent and fitting legacy to country music icon Eddy Arnold, the last steward of this special place.
The Voce team brings a high level of passion, commitment, and wide-ranging experience to the task of creating an incomparable neighborhood – the first of its kind in Nashville – that retains and embraces the natural beauty of the land. Voce will save the trees wherever possible, employing light impact practices that promote an environmentally sensitive development approach.
The team is dedicated to preserving and complementing Voce’s unspoiled setting, implementing practical sustainable solutions and encouraging a broader architectural palette than what is typically permitted. Fittingly, music, art and the area’s rich history will be integral to Voce’s site design and marketing.
Eschewing the traditional residential development model of houses placed on clearly defined expanses of lawn, Voce will feature informal garden landscaping and naturally wooded hone sites set within a pedestrian-friendly, walkable community of sidewalks, paths and trails.
Voce homes will have a compact environmental footprint, utilizing a variety of natural water features to remove pollutants from storm water runoff, and implementing natural techniques to reinforce existing streams. Wherever practical and cost effective, construction waste will be recycled, and native materials, including repurposed trees, will be used to create special architectural elements.
Creativity is in the air at Voce. From street furnishings to lighting to signage, features will be designed to convey the creative spirit.
Architecture & Landscaping
From the ground up, Voce is different. As the first development of its kind in the Nashville area, Voce presents a myriad of new choices and some exciting challenges for the creative homebuyer.
Each home in Voce will be an individual work, custom-designed to respond to the unique characteristics of the area’s unspoiled, tree-filled landscape. Creative expression and environmental sensitivity will be common elements of the architecture.
Forte Building Group’s Involvement
The music to be played at Voce is a blend of the best architectural, design and construction talent that has been assembled in Nashville. We are fortunate to have previously collaborated with several of these talented and unique architects and designers on previous projects, so we can hit the ground running.
