We Are A Full Service Asheville Architecture Firm
Providing Design-Minded Clients with the Homes of Their Dreams

We specialize in distinctive, custom home designs that reflect the sensibilities and lifestyles of the families that inhabit them. While all of our clients share an appreciation of design and a belief that home is so much more than where you hang your hat, their needs are as unique as the homes we create for them. With that idea in mind, all of the services we provide — architectural design, interior design, and outdoor living design — can be tailored to suit your individual needs and desired level of engagement.

When designing a dream home, you should be searching for the right architectural design firm who can create not just any house, but your dream home. Let’s embark on that exciting journey together. Our New Custom Home Design Services focus on the creation of the unique, artfully designed and exceptionally functional home you’ve been dreaming of.

Informed by our expertise and experience, we observe your current situation and ask questions to learn about your specific needs so we can uncover the full potential of your existing home. From the overall concept to the smallest detail, our design professionals will guide you through the process and offer innovative design ideas and cost-effective construction options to make the most of your home renovation.

We spend much of our time inside of our homes; they can serve as a backdrop for both life’s biggest milestones as well as the quiet but incredibly important ones. Our firm specializes in recognizing your take on the look, feel, and function of your interior spaces and incorporating that into our design. Whether creating a new space or improving upon what already exists, we help you imagine the best of what could be.

Have you been searching for potential properties for sale in Western North Carolina? If you’ve narrowed down your options, but still can’t decide which existing home or undeveloped mountain lot to purchase, our Property Consultations are a worthwhile investment. Conducted by our principal architect, Amy Conner-Murphy, this in-depth analysis will allow you to proceed with confidence and clarity.

Explore the outdoors and enjoy the best of living in the mountains right outside of your own home. ACM Design can customize the design of your outdoor spaces to bring you the best in outdoor living, including outdoor cooking and entertainment stations, fire and water features, patios, pergolas, porches and more.

Preserving the history of our storied mountain region is at the center of our hearts.
