Armand de Corrtieux Carroll
Born: 6/15/1898, Died: 5/2/1976

Biography from the American Architects and Buildings database PAB
Armand Carroll attended San Jose High School in San Jose, CA before he trained at the University of Pennsylvania, earning a certificate of proficiency in 1922. He began his career in the office of William H. Lee, eventually (according to his obituary in the Philadelphia Bulletin) becoming chief designer in that office. Carroll later opened his own firm in Philadelphia, probably around 1943 when he joined the national AIA. He was a member of the Philadelphia Chapter. Written by Emily T. Cooperman.

1960 The Ralph and Suzanne Roberts Residence  Sural Lodge

Armand Carroll designed this home in 1960 for Ralph and Suzanne Roberts.  The large clearstory windows running down the main axis of the residence, the long overhangs at the entrance, and the combination of scuptural wood and massive stone fireplace all show the the influence of Carroll's time at Taliesin. The Roberts first hired Louis Kahn to design a home on Apalogen Rd in East Falls  which remained unbuilt, they then turned their attention to this very private 3 acre lot with architect Armand de Cortieux Carroll. The result is a unique and special home with original details in excellent condition. The home is constructed with solid Cypress beams. Suzanne and Ralph Roberts gave the home the name Sural Lodge formed with the first letters of their first names.
