Arts and Crafts Architecture has a special appeal for people from the north Atlanta / Buckhead area.  They like things like Keeping Rooms (a special sitting area near the kitchen as you will see below), and the special timber details with the Arts and Crafts style of residential design.

Entry to Mountain House Designed by Rand Soellner : Arts and Crafts Architecture.

This residence is one of Home Architect’s mountain lodge homes, with a focus on Arts and Crafts architecture.  The mountain lodge series was developed by this firm as a bold and logical response to mountain environments.  These homes are usually long from left-to-right to maximize the downhill views off the rear.  Privacy is maintained by logical spacial organization, with the rooms wanting big views off the rear and spaces not requiring this (like closets and garages) on the front elevation.This webpage may be useful to those people seeking information about the following subjects:Arts and crafts architectureArts & Crafts home architectsHome DesignersArts and Crafts homesCashiers NC architectsCraftsman Style homesCustom residential designRavenel RidgeHighlands North CarolinaNorth Carolina home stylesNorth Carolina MansionsAtlanta area residential designBuckhead designersCastle planningWe hope we have been of service; please let us know if there’s anything we can design for you.—————————————————————–

Following are several recent photos taken in 2009:

illustrating how well the 5-year old Arts and Crafts architecture home is retaining its timeless character, a trait of all Rand Soellner Architect home designs

click on this logo for direct e-mail to RandThe materials used blend well with the environment and this Arts and Crafts architecture community: faux slate roof tiles, stone and white pine wall siding, low-arch Arts and Crafts style windows and doors, steeply pitched roofs with the architect’s bracing and bracketry and timber frame truss treatments, deep porches and overhangs to deal with this Alpine rain forest climate.

Large windows, and many of them are a characteristic of Rand Soellner Architect custom homes.

This is the actual view, preserved by the home design, still sacred and pure.

Sleeping Porch, a feature on most Rand Soellner Architect custom home designs.

Big views of your beautiful acreage through giant window areas. Custom home architects, luxury home architects, post and beam architects, timber frame architects.

View from the Hearth Room off to the left. Big windows for big views.

Keeping Room, a southern tradition, a sort of living room for the Kitchen for guests, while preparing meals.

From the street, the architect's site planning curved the driveway to maintain the privacy of the homeowners.
