Asheville NC Home Renovation and Additions– Modern, Green, Updated

Samsel Architects offers a variety of addition and renovation design services to refresh your home. A home renovation can bring custom-home design quality to an existing structure, and allows the homeowner to bring their own design preferences, whether it be mountain modern, green home design, contemporary rustic, or craftsman bungalow, to any home. Samsel Architects provides home renovation design services across the spectrum, from a simple master bedroom suite addition to a full rework of an existing home. Whether it’s a recently purchased home with the potential for improvement, or a long-term residence with a wish list, our studio has extensive experience designing timeless home renovations.

Adaptive Reuse for Commercial and Downtown Asheville Renovation

Since 1985, Samsel Architects has worked with over 30 businesses on adaptive reuse and renovation of downtown Asheville buildings. Our extensive experience with historic preservation tax credits helps our clients maximize financing options for their downtown renovation projects, while preserving the rich architectural history of Asheville. We have experience designing adaptive reuse solutions for Biltmore Village, Asheville’s up-and-coming South Slope, bar and restaurant renovations, retail and gallery spaces, and apartments. Commercial adaptive reuse allows beautiful existing structures to lend their old Asheville charm to modern business.

From a 1920s Bungalow to a Mountain Modern House

Residential architecture has different standards today than 20 years ago.  Modern lifestyles place increased emphasis on gourmet kitchens, open floor plans, indoor/outdoor spaces, and updated master suites. Samsel Architects seamlessly integrates these functions into the charm of an existing Asheville bungalow, midcentury modern, mountain modern, rustic contemporary, or any other style residence.  Working within the constraints of an existing structure encourages creative problem solving, giving each renovation project unique design features.

Home Renovation as Sustainable Residential Design

Reusing existing buildings is the ultimate sustainable design. By using the existing building materials, site, and embodied energy, home renovation allows for all of the up-to-date function of a new home, with a significantly reduced environmental footprint. Samsel Architects designs long-lasting, timeless spaces that can help to protect the environment and preserve a community’s history.
