Our Team

Our work is about more than just designing great architecture, it is about creating homes that luxuriate in the landscape and complement how you live. Our architects and interior designers are proponents of mountain living and we bring that passion for the lifestyle to every project. We acknowledge and appreciate the trust you place in us to deliver on your dream of a charming mountain home personalized to meet your needs.

Who We Are

When you’re working with an architect and interior designer you want to know more about them than where they studied, you want to feel a connection. You want an advocate who understands what home means to you and is excited to build on that connection through the creative process. We see tremendous value in the chemistry we have with our clients; it allows us to work and communicate effectively, to establish trust in one another, and to ensure that we are not just designing a home, we are designing your home.

Interested in Our Ethos?


At ACM Design, our clients are the main focus of every project. We practice active listening and we use our expertise to translate your thoughts, ideas, and anecdotes about your day-to-day life into a design that functions beautifully and exemplifies what home means to you. We pride ourselves on our ability to communicate effectively with you every step of the way.

Throughout the course of each home design project our core team expands as needed to include additional quality professionals necessary to complete construction.

ACM Design is centrally located to Asheville, NC. We are fortunate to have served many clients throughout the tri-state mountain region of Western North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, and Upstate South Carolina.

If you’ve not yet decided where you want to live, we can help you select the right community for your custom dream home in the mountains.
