Custom Residential Architecture

The Architectural Studio is proud to be Western North Carolina’s premier Architecture and Interior Design firm specializing in custom residential architecture. As specialists, our goal is to design distinctive homes worthy of their breathtaking backdrops with interiors providing a comfort worthy of each home’s 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.

Beautiful Interior Design

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 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 our mountain culture and beauty. When Architecture and Interior Design work seamlessly, it should openly embrace a client’s lifestyle, not have the lifestyle change to fit the home.
