Since opening our doors almost 20 years ago Allison Ramsey Architects has been instrumental in providing designs to planned and traditional neighborhood developments throughout the country. We have now published five house plan collections: Carolina Inspirations I, II, and III, Outbuildings, and the North Carolina Collection.
In the tradition of the great American architects that have come before us, we design homes with soul and heritage, based on architectural principles of scale, proportion, and historical precedent. From conceptual drawings through construction administration, our Custom Design Process leads clients to a true manifestation of their dreams, with details, charm, and character you’d expect from Stephen Fuller Designs.

An internationally recognized award winning architect and planner leader in New Urbanism, Tom’s urban design work includes plans for new villages, neighborhoods and towns as well as redevelopment plans. Prior to establishing his consulting practice in 2013, Tom served as Partner with DPZ for 21 years, where he opened their Charlotte office in 1995. One of the first in the movement, he pioneered designs including the VILLAGE OF HABERSHAM for walkable, connected, mixed-income, mixed-use, neighborhood, town, and city design—practices now common. He has conducted over 150 muti-day planning charrettes. Through his own initiatives Tom elevates the quality of our built environment through his Civic By Design forum, integrates sustainability with community design through Light Imprint, advocates for better school campuses through Learning Cottages and engages communities through hands-on design collaboration with MIXOPOLY.

DIFIORE & PARTNERS HAS BEEN PRACTICING THE ART AND SCIENCE OF INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS. THIS HAS BEEN ACHIEVED BY WORKING CLOSELY WITH OUR CLIENTS TO TRANSLATE THEIR LIFESTYLE INTO A THREE-DIMENSIONAL ENVIRONMENT.
WITH THEIR RECENT RELOCATION TO THE SOUTH, VIA AN OFFICE IN HABERSHAM, THE FIRM HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND BEYOND THEIR INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE EXPERIENCE TO THE EXTERIOR AND PROVIDE THE COMPLETE DESIGN PACKAGE. THIS TRANSITION HAS PROVEN TO BE A NATURAL PROGRESSION AND ONE THAT UNIQUELY BENEFITS THEIR CLIENTS. THE MINUTE LEVEL OF DETAIL REQUIRED TO DESIGN A “CLIENT SPECIFIC” INTERIOR NOW INFORMS THE EXTERIOR ENVELOPE AS WELL. WHEN THESE ELEMENTS ARE COMBINED WITH HISTORICAL REFERENCES AND CLASSICAL PROPORTIONS, THE RESULT IS A PERFECT SYNERGY OF FUNCTION AND AESTHETICS.

Paul Harms grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. From an early age he was fascinated with houses; not only in terms of design, but by how they were lived in. He earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the prestigious School of Architecture at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida; an institution dedicated to smart growth principles and classically-inspired design. Paul’s career, and life, has always revolved around houses. He started working on high-end renovation projects on Chicago’s North Shore. Then, intrigued with the concept of New Urbanism, Paul joined Urban Design Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to help create the architectural landscape of several new buildings and neighborhoods. Next, Paul joined well-know designer Eric Moser at Moser Design Group in Beaufort, South Carolina. It was at this coastal location, in the beautiful community of Habersham, where he was inspired to create his own firm, LiveWell Home Design.
While Paul Harms has designed houses all over the country, a good concentration of LiveWell homes can be seen in Habersham, an idyllic community located near historic Beaufort, SC.
