Our studio is currently operating remotely, so our physical office is closed for the time being.

May is National Preservation Month and 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act, a program that aimed to preserve and protect America's historic resources. The history of Samsel Architects begins with preservation and rehabilitation projects, as well as civic leadership promoting preservation. We have a 30+ year history of revitalization projects in Asheville, including urban residences, retail, offices and galleries. One of the first preservation projects was 60 & 64 Biltmore Avenue, the location of our studio and nine local businesses. This project received a Griffin Award from the Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County
