Rob Carlton began his architectural career in the mid-1990’s after graduating from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where he received his Bachelor of Architecture. After years of practice with larger firms in Tennessee and Asheville, Rob sought to establish a progressive architectural firm focused on redefining the common notion of Appalachian mountain architecture. Driven by a sense of stewardship for the land and reverence for an architecture that is relevant and timeless, Carlton-Edwards was born.
Rob is also a licensed general contractor in North Carolina and South Carolina and is the qualifier for Carlton DesignBuild, the construction arm of Carlton-Edwards. In providing this continuity of service, Rob’s hands-on approach to the design and construction process brings together his vision as an architect and passion for the highest standards of craft.
