Architecture & Planning Firm, Legerton Architecture of Asheville, North Carolina, founded in 1994.
Our mission: To create contextually sensitive, sustainable designs.
Our values: Listening carefully; improving communities; contributing to our local and regional quality of life; conducting all business as people and place matter.
Legerton Architecture, a responsive design oriented architectural firm in Asheville, North Carolina, was founded in 1994 by John Legerton. In the last 25 years, our clients on over 600 projects have included homeowners, non-profit organizations, community groups, schools, colleges, universities, healthcare providers, business owners, churches, housing authorities, towns, and cities.
Currently we have eight people in our firm: six registered architects and LEED accredited professionals (including a certified passive house consultant), an AutoCAD and building detailing guru, and an awesome office manager. Every member of our team shares a commitment to careful listening throughout every phase of our client’s design project.
We are known for providing thoughtful, detailed designs, and carefully documented construction plans and specifications which go a long way to ensure that our client’s buildings will be designed well and constructed properly. This quality of our work results in more accurate bids and pricing from contractors, closer bid ranges, and fewer change orders as construction proceeds, which saves our clients’ money.
We utilize Building Information Modeling and other software to create 3D models of all of our projects. Whether renovating an existing building or designing a new structure from the ground up, we find that designing in three dimensions greatly improves understanding and clarity for our clients, as well as for us.
We live and work in Asheville, North Carolina. We are committed to serving our local and Western North Carolina communities through design. We integrate environmental sustainability into all of our projects. Our projects have ranged from small residential renovations to new homes, community centers, affordable and workforce housing, medical offices, a birthing center, public and private schools, colleges and universities, conference centers, museums, cafés, restaurants, breweries, and distilleries. We enjoy our work and bring a high level of passion and commitment to every project, regardless of scale.
