The Foxfire subdivision has several nice lots with great views. This house is on one of them. Initially started in nearby Cullasaja Club, the developers for this project ultimately decided on this location, engaging HOME ARCHITECTS ® senior staff architect Rand Soellner, ArCH, AIA, NCARB to design the speculative house, which sold before being completed.
creates Appalachian Style luxury design in Cashiers – Highlands area
Residential architect Rand Soellner designed this interesting developer home for the Foxfire neighborhood, not far from Wildcat Cliffs. The developers requested an arrangement similar to several popular plans that had proven themselves in the Cullasaja Club community, with numerous improvements, by residential architect Soellner.
HOME ARCHITECTS ® uses an interesting mix of details from various journeys to observe and inspect timeless architecture both abroad and throughout United States. For instance, the curved “eyebrow” roof vent details used by this residential architect were observed on several Yellowstone “parkitecture” buildings in Wyoming. From staff architect Soellner’s viewpoint, a residential architect needs to take cues from timeless houses and buildings that no one can really point to and say that something was from this era or that period and he constantly endeavors to extrapolate his layouts and details so that they have a feeling from perhaps a period, but nothing specific that dates them. Hence the term: timeless.

A residential architect
is also a cottage architect.
This residential firm is also a cottage architect and this left side of this Foxfire home illustrates the cottage-like character of their typical grandchild bunkrooms over garage for which they have become famous. “A residential firm really needs to work every square inch to make these types of house fulfill the functional as well as aesthetic requirements and dreams of the homeowner,” said staff member Soellner. His firm delights in using features that people can’t quite identify as coming from any particular era, but that somehow resonate in their psyche. They call this part of their “Timeless” style, which they really say is no particular style. Still, their designs are undeniably theirs and bear their hallmark muscular timbers, kind of a Charles Atlas of Craftsman Style that is a boldness that sets this residential design company apart from their contemporaries.
Responsibilities of a residential architect.
Being a residential architect carries with it a responsibility to satisfy functional requirements on a level above and beyond the offerings of builders. Being licensed professionals means that you are supposed to conceive solutions that are better than conventional offerings. At least, that is what this firm believes. They constantly push the limit of incorporating the latest technologies into the aesthetic shells of timeless appearance. Staff member Soellner remembers a book by an author in the 1970s named Alvin Toffler, who created a popular book called Future Shock. In this book, the author said that High Tech lifestyles need to be tempered with High Touch. By this, the author meant that the more modern life becomes, the more texture and warmth and familiarity and history humans psychologies require to assimilate the advancements comfortably. Soellner understands this and accommodates this into his Timeless designs as a leading residential designer.
