MARK RUDOLF, AIA
Mark Rudolf is a licensed architect specializing in luxury resorts and custom residential design, currently located in Asheville, North Carolina. A Virginia Beach native, he studied architecture at Virginia Tech, and is licensed in both Virginia and Colorado. He also holds a Green Globe certification for sustainable tourism, which is truly at the heart of some of his most recognized efforts.
With eighteen years of professional experience, he is well known for his work in the realm of hospitality design, some of his properties having won globally recognized awards. Among them, Castello di Casole in Italy was named the #2 hotel in the world by Travel and Leisure magazine, and The Sebastian in Vail, Colorado, was named the #2 resort in the continental United States. A leader in the sustainable design movement, some of his work in this sphere includes Brasada Ranch in Bend, Oregon, which was the first resort in the US to earn LEED Gold certification, and was also named Sustainable Community Of The Year in 2007.
Influenced most by his extensive travels, Mark has visited over thirty-five countries on five continents, has lived in Spain and spent a significant amount of time working in Italy. This experience has shaped his work significantly, work that is deeply rooted in ‘Place Making’: honoring what makes a site truly unique and special, he weaves an architectural language that is both provocative and respectful of its place.
With infant son Quinn keeping Mark and his wife Heather busy, his current favorite extra - curricular activity is attempting sleep. Otherwise, he is known to enjoy skiing, hiking and travel.
