Located in Asheville, ASSEMBLY ARCHITECTURE + BUILD is a small forward-thinking group of designers, architects, and builders advocating for and delivering on a smarter built environment. Our philosophy is simple: design and build beautiful and affordable green homes, keep the process simple and fun, and have clear communication with a high level of collaboration throughout the process.
Founded by Ross Smith, ASSEMBLY ARCHITECTURE + BUILD was created to streamline the project delivery process by combining architecture and construction into one office. This unique combination enables us to DESIGN homes based on values of energy-efficiency, site-specificity, and client needs, while BUILDING homes based on resource stewardship, quality, and affordability. Removing the conventional professional barrier between Owner-Architect-Contractor makes us a unique company with a fast response time and affordable rates.
We are constantly striving to create better homes, which keeps us at the cutting edge of technology and building techniques. It is our belief that with architecture and building comes great responsibility; it’s an opportunity to shape the built world around us in ways that are both ethical and elevating.
