The Architectural Studio is proud to be Western North Carolina’s premier Architectural and Interior Design Firm specializing in custom homes. As specialists in complete, custom architectural services and Interior Design, our goal is to design distinctive houses that are worthy of their breathtaking backdrops with Interiors that provide a comfort worthy of the homes owners.

Architecture is a complex, multi-faceted endeavor combining science & technology, light and space through interpretation of client-specific and contextual requirements, community and environmental constraints, perceptions and taste.

The Architectural Studio adds value to each project by concentrating on the unique features of each site, capturing light and views, integrating the building with the landscape, studying the proportions and design aesthetics of each client’s requirements. Our effort is always focused on turning our client’s ideas into beautiful, functional environments that look and feel timeless.

In Western North Carolina we are fortunate to have many different types of communities, many diverse people and many different lifestyles. It is our belief that our years of experience coupled with knowledge and talent gives us the forethought to blend the beautiful surroundings in which we live and the buildings within which we dwell to provide a seamless quality of life that embraces the area and its beauty. When Architecture and Interiors work seamlessly, it should openly embrace a client’s lifestyle, not have the lifestyle change to fit the home.
