House Beautiful Whole Home Concept House 2019 Up Close: HVAC Throughout the House

 The final installment of our up-close tour of the 2019 House Beautiful Whole Home Concept House in Nashville, Tennessee takes us all over the house, as ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE custom fabricated the HVAC vent covers in every room, including the hallways.

Although it’s subtle, the star of the HVAC show is ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE’s AG10 F Frame linear bar grille in our popular 94% post-consumer recycled aluminum. The design team at Castle Homes requested these custom grilles be primed as they wished to field paint (aka color match) onsite as there were multiple interior paint colors being used throughout the house. Sleek and modern just like the Whole Home Concept House itself, these grilles deliver not only on function but on designer-approved aesthetics as well. This grille has a fixed core with zero deflection and is pencil-proof, meaning there’s no way a pencil is dropping between those ¼” spaced bars.

Spot the AG10 F Frame above the stunning central circular staircase leading from the entrance foyer designed by the legendary Vern Yip, to the Upstairs Landing designed by the talented team at Modern Remains.


Then find it in a whimsical child’s bedroom, created by Dallas-based designer Amy Berry

Just look up to spot it again in the modern and minimalist office designed by the “NYC tech scene’s interior designer of choice”, Danielle Arps of Dani Arps.

In fact, look up in nearly every hallway, and you’ll see an AG10 F Frame. 


The AG10 F Frame also makes an appearance in the home gym, created by the Castle Homes design team, Rachel Haag and Joy Huber. 

And that’s not the only ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE vent cover to make an appearance in the gym! This room also features a 206 Maltese Perforated Grille in solid brass with an unlacquered finish, a beautiful addition that’s sure to motivate any design-loving exerciser.


The 206 Maltese Perforated Grille in unlacquered brass was also used in Vern Yip’s living room design, where it contributes to the elegance of the room while also guaranteeing high engineering performance for optimal air flow.

It’s been an honor to contribute to House Beautiful’s 2019 Whole Home Concept House. A huge thank you to the other designers and sponsors who made this exciting project possible, including Castle Homes, Wellness Within Your Walls, LG Electronics, Forbes + Masters, Matthew Quinn and Richard Anuszkiewicz of Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio, and — of course — House Beautiful. We’re already looking forward to the 2020 Whole Home Concept House! In the meantime, which room was your favorite?
