The Philosophy

We put clients first. The house we design for you will be part of your family, so we custom tailor our designs to meet your specific needs and desires. We don’t bring our ego to the process. We listen to you and incorporate and embellish your ideas within the framework of solid architectural design. You the client are a major part of the process which we regard as a team effort. We strive to be easy to work with, making the process of designing your home a pleasurable and fun experience.

We have a respect for architecture and design integrity. 

We are comfortable working in any architectural style that is desired by the client, whether it be a “green” contemporary home or one based on the rich tradition of historical styles common throughout Western North Carolina.

We are a full service residential design firm. We know that building a house can be a confusing and sometimes difficult process. Our goal is to guide the client clearly and painlessly through the process. We can help with all aspects of the home designing/building process from lot selection, pre-visualization of the house, full design, working drawings, all the way through to construction.

We care about the environment and the health of your family. We are proficient in passive solar design techniques and strive to use healthy, sustainable, “green” building materials and processes in the homes we design. Your home will be around for a long time so it is important that we create a building that will function efficiently in it’s energy usage and material sustainability.

We look forward to working with you to create your dream home.
