Vellum Architecture + Design is expanding into interior design services, announcing Naomi Ferrara as Interiors Director. The award-winning firm has emerged as one of Western North Carolina’s most influential architectural firms, known for its modernist rigor rooted in warm and welcoming materials.

While the popular mountain town’s culinary renaissance has been well documented, Asheville’s contemporary culture is quietly cultivating its own scene, resulting in homes inspired and shaped by nature.

Vellum Founder Mark Rudolf, who launched his career in Aspen, says his firm’s growth follows clients’ desire for a collective vision that embraces the region’s duality – both the influx of new homeowners from South Florida and the Northeast, as well as its authentic landscape.

As Interiors Director, Ferrara deepens and integrates Vellum’s expertise with comprehensive services spanning architectural planning stages through installation.

Rudolf says Vellum’s ethos is connecting people and place. “We create homes that are responsive to their surroundings, and Naomi is a central figure in weaving together the spirit and intention of the overall structure and dwelling experience.”

Ferrara, who specializes in custom millwork, cabinetry, and functional space planning, worked in South Florida (Miami), Israel, and South Africa for nearly 20 years prior to joining Vellum. She’s completed high-profile residences in La Gorce and Continuum on Miami Beach, as well as The Settings in Black Mountain, NC, while holding positions at Sharon Lewis Design (Miami), IDology (NC), and other notable firms.

“I look forward to leveraging my diverse experience and cultural perspectives to elevate Vellum’s design services for our clients,” Ferrara said.
