1. Common House No. 3 - Chattanooga, TN
A building with a rich history, Common House No. 3 was formerly a YMCA in 1929 as a place for working men to stay on their travels through Chattanooga. It doubled as an event hall to host sock hops and community events, but over time it was eventually shut down and neglected. In May 2021 it opened its doors again as the luxurious Common House No. 3. The marvelous details that had deteriorated over years of neglect were brought back to life with careful planning and an eye for artistry. Every corner and nook has been beautifully curated and honored as an art piece, making it one of the most poetic venues in Chattanooga with timeless design and attention to detail.
