Residential Design Services

Altura Architects has a long legacy of excellence in residential design. As design trends come and go, our homes retain a timelessness that comes from an evolving design perspective. Our desire is to design modern homes without losing a sense of place. To achieve this balance, our homes feature simple forms that relate to the surrounding landscape and buildings. A clean design uses natural materials to create a comfortable, effortless aesthetic.

All of our residential designs feature a strong connection to the outdoors. Many of our clients seek out Western North Carolina because of the exceptional scenery and to pursue outdoor activities. We want this passion to be reflected in their home. Thoughtfully incorporating perfectly framed views and outdoor spaces are key in our designs. 

We always start a residential project by walking the land to understand its constraints and opportunities. From there, we can determine the ideal place to construct a home that affords our clients views and connection while also blending into the surrounding environment. Constructing a home may be the single most important investment a client makes, so we have a strong sense of responsibility to making the most of the opportunity to serve.
