“I’m drawn to the timeless essence of ancient classical architecture. This Art has touched my soul and awakened a passion that was kept hidden until now. This awakening is a wonderful privilege, but one that comes with a price,…………. addiction.”
This is the opening statement on the website of Frank Smith Residential Design, Inc. and a perfect description of Frank Smith. He brings amazing talent, knowledge and an exhilarating architectural quirkiness to the table. Smith is a local Charlotte architect who epitomizes the term “total architecture.”
All of his houses are themed after traditional European styles, down to every last detail exterior and interior. Smith’s approach is definitely unique as he travels for weeks every year researching designs and finding inspiration for upcoming projects. Upon his return every minute component and minor proportional nuance of a style are engrained into his brain, and, in turn, flows onto the design page.
