The Appetizer is a proposed Culinary Institute and Boutique hotel, situated near downtown Nashville, in the Germantown area. The exact location lies on the former Neuhoff Meat Packaging plant. Striving to design a community which serves as a complimentary gathering space for supplemental, educational, and commercial means, it is designed such that there is minimal impact upon the environment, but working with natural, nearby resources to enhance the overall quality of the design. Cultivating interactions in a sought-after location, by creating a connection to an existing campus, enhancing the movement that exists and drawing upon future potentials. The design endorses a public and private interaction by providing the opportunity to interrelate education, food production, and the inevitable interactions with residents from near and far communities.
