Bridge over a River


We are visionaries.

Our designs weave together the story of your land, your home, and your heart.

Our work is thoughtful, intentional, and built to last. 

Our purpose is to leave this world a better place than we received it.

Michael Merschat, AIA

Principal Architect

Michael grew up on a farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside Asheville, NC. After graduating from the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design, he moved up to Washington, DC, to pursue his career in architecture.

After two decades of city life, Michael returned home and found renewed connection with the land and rural community of his youth.


He believes that we have an opportunity to bring thoughtful design principles into every home, effortlessly blending the natural flow of the land with modern architecture.

 He currently serves as the Education Director for the Executive Committee of the Asheville Chapter of the AIA and as Chairperson  the Capitol Area CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network).


Waylon + Lucy

Design Dogs

Waylon and Lucy are sweet Lab-Pit mixes and they love taking walks, sleeping in the office, and snoring through architecture design charrettes. 


This brother and sister duo remind us everyday that no matter how busy we are, it's always a great time to take a break, get outside, and breathe in the miracle of another beautiful day.
