ASHEVILLE, N.C. – November 12, 2021 – Vellum Architecture & Design, a full-service, award-winning architectural firm specializing in modern mountain residential design and luxury resort architecture, recently added to its trophy collection when it was named Best New Firm – South by The Architect’s Newspaper as part of its first-ever Best of Practice Awards.

Vellum is dedicated to thoughtful innovation in design and architecture.

“Our firm is thrilled to accept the 2021 award for Best New Firm – South,” said Vellum’s Founding Principal and Owner, Mark Rudolf. “We recognize that design is not a linear process, but a collection of decisions that come together to define space and respond to surroundings. Utilizing analog and digital methodologies, we take our clients on a journey of design and exploration.

“We transform initial thoughts and ideas into beautiful, inspiring, and functional spaces.”

Vellum Architecture & Design creates innovative, modern structures with a focus on improving lives through design. This starts with the design process and elevating the client experience. Priorities include a focus on the needs of a client and an unwavering pursuit of excellence.
