Historic Home Renovations

Restoring & Rehabilitating Your Historic Home for Modern Living

Breathing new life into a historical home allows you to show off the rich beauty, highlight the intricate details, and become part of the history of the home.

At ACM Design, we’ve had the pleasure of working on a variety of historical homes in both Asheville and other areas of North Carolina. Although age and neglect may require updating of systems and finishes, oftentimes, the bones of a historic structure are built to last​ and our award-winning team is up to the task. We understand the importance of celebrating the past by preserving homes of historical significance; we are also creative enough to figure out how to integrate the conveniences of modern living for today’s families. We approach historical renovations with a careful eye, discerning the best ways to repair and restore homes needing rebirth. Knowing which details to preserve and what to renew can be tricky; we are here to guide you and offer innovative solutions that will make a house with history into your home.

In 2015, we were honored with the Griffin Award for Rehabilitation on our Grove Park Renovation project, phase one. In this first phase of the project, we restored a dilapidated, 1920s cottage in the charming Grove Park area of Asheville. The Griffin Award is presented each year by the Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County. We were thrilled to be invited back by the homeowners in 2018 to complete the design for an addition to the home that incorporated all of the historic charm they loved in their already renovated home.

We see the challenge of renovating a historic home as a privilege and serving alongside the region’s many historic preservation organizations as an honor. If you have a beloved home in a historic community — such as Asheville’s Grove Park or Biltmore Forest — and are looking for an architectural design team to help you to renovate and restore your home, please contact us to set up a consultation.

Get Started with a Low Commitment Consultation

Low Committment Consultation with an ArchitectACM Design Architecture and Interiors offers our Clarity Consultation ™ (CC),, which is a low-commitment design consultation for new custom home projects. The CC includes a proprietary questionnaire for clients to complete and an on-site visit to assess real-life conditions. The CC establishes the project program, e.g. rooms, room sizes, and overall square footage, based upon client input and site topography. This information is then used to create a proprietary Project Projection Summary that states the project scope based on the service package levels, e.g. Core, Classic, or Premium. A contract is then prepared.

By making a small investment in the CC, it allows you to understand the design intricacies and possibilities of your project. You can then confirm the right balance between design and budget, prior to committing to the entire project. You see and keep the results of the CC and can apply the insights no matter what firm you choose to complete the work. Contact us today to discuss our Clarity Consultation.
