Mountain lodge architect used rustic materials.
Mountain lodge architect Soellner departed from their typical more refined materials on this rustic residence, which seemed appropriate for the near- Panthertown Valley site. “A bit more Hobbit-like,” said Soellner, “which is very appealing to the right homeowners, which is what the client requested.” Cedar shingles adorn the popouts (see upper right side). A regimented but smaller timber frame system was used to frame the roof of this project. As a mountain lodge architect, Soellner liked the idea of using exposed rough-hewn beams. Soellner specified native stone on the stair tower and gave the base of that tower an historic Adirondack slope. The porte-cochere has a double clearstory to admit sunlight into its center.
Mountain lodge architect Rand Soellner has the experience.
Rand Soellner home architects has been a mountain lodge architect for many years and his designs have been features in architectural books and magazines worldwide. He believes that this particular house is probably his most rustic, hence the label Adirondack, which tends to be more rural and rustic than the muscular Craftsman-like style in which he often designs his projects. “I know it’s right when I feel something about my designs excite my imagination,” said Soellner, “A mountain lodge architect needs to create designs that take people away into the Rockies or Blue ridge or Andes or Alps.” Meaning, that something about the designs created by a mountain lodge architect needs to stir people’s imaginations to want to be there in the mountains. Soellner said he works diligently to accomplish this with all of his creations.
