This page is an index that lists the pages you can click to to find out more about those particular subjects.


For those of you that may just want a synopsis of what you will find on the other pages referenced, we can tell you the following:


The Firm Info page is like an About Us page, describing what our background is and what we do and establishes some of our background so that you can understand what gives us a right to claim to be knowledgeable about this subject of residential design.



History and Biography give you some information about the Architect’s background that some of you might find interesting.  Not only does it review professional and educational background, it delves into the historical roots of his family heritage, going back to the “Old Country” in the 1800’s and features some sepia-toned aging family photos and a tour of the ancestral region overseas.


The Design Philosophy page provides insight into the Architect’s design methodology, so that if you are interested, you can open the pages of his mind to discover the process by which he will be designing your custom residence.  There is a logical step by step procedure that allows you to participate at each stage of the design, so that your wishes are incorporated into your residence.  Some firms don’t do it this way; they just knock out a design.  Not us.  We respect your wishes an make sure that you have multiple, convenient opportunities along the way to input your desires and review the project design progress.


The Honors & Awards page lists various applause the world has bestowed upon Soellner over the years, which may give you a comfort level that you will be engaging a highly respected architect of fine houses.
