Residential Architecture in Asheville, NC


Samsel Architects has contributed to the Asheville residential architecture dialogue for more than 30 years.  From mountain modern, rustic contemporary, mid century modern, craftsman bungalow, or cottage style homes, we have extensive experience in crafting thoughtful home design for any lifestyle.

Designing Steep Slope Mountain Homes

Our design team has extensive experience designing functional, beautiful homes on steep mountain slopes.  Quality steep slope residential design considers the contours of the site along with the home’s function – not perched on the mountainside, but harmoniously integrated with the surrounding environment. Designing steep slope homes in this way promotes a balance among the natural and built environments, preserving mountain views for everyone to enjoy.

We are committed to environmental sustainability in our designs, and designing in visual harmony with nature is a tenet of green residential design.

Mountain Views, Lake Views

Expansive mountain views are one of Asheville’s greatest charms, and the exceptional scenery in the area informs our residential designs.  Many clients seek out Western North Carolina to pursue lakeside activities.  Samsel Architects designs beautiful lake homes to allow for full enjoyment of our region’s sparkling lakes and rivers: fishing cabins, boat houses, and easy access to the outdoors.

Views and outdoor spaces are often incorporated as touchstones of the design, elegantly blending the indoor space with the outdoor.  Whether you are interested in boating, hiking, cooking, or simply enjoying the scenery, Samsel Architects can design an environmentally responsive, custom home to suit your needs.
