To handle mansion architecture
your architect needs to know how to design large complex facilities
yet have an appreciation for the details
If you are looking for an architect that knows how to handle substantial project requirements, but it is a house you are interested in having designed, Rand Soellner may be one of your candidates. Mansion architecture is in his blood. Even his family estate dating back to the 1600′s in Bavaria was a large assemblage of buildings.

Mansion architecture is a combination of ideas.
Mansion architecture is a combination of the “Grand Idea”, the concept that pulls it all together, and then there are the details. Both of these must work seamlessly together, each reinforcing the other to result in a cohesive whole.
The project above illustrates some of Soellner’s rustic mansion architecture just being completed in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. The Big idea here is the view: of the mountains across the valley and to those in the distance.
For instance, the timber trusses above embody the strength of the massive house that they help support, yet they have openings in them to admit light and views of the sky. Mansion architecture is about the big idea. It is also about the details that support it.
