Sure, the name is new, but the local architectural studio (and the people who work there) hasn’t changed. The studio is still locally owned by Duncan McPherson and Nathan Bryant, who’ve both been with the firm for 20+ years.
So why the name change? “Altura” means height, altitude, a high place; It’s a tribute to the mountains surrounding AVL and symbolizes the studio’s commitment to a high level of service + design excellence.
Ashevillians can continue to count on the studio for:
- Timeless, custom architecture
- Being trusted guides each step of the way
- Sustainable design principles
- Exceptional artistic vision that reflects 828’s mountain region
