Carl von Seutter was the architect of the Koehler mansion, then touted as the most costly private residence in the city. Seutter had worked as a draftsman for James Riley Gordon, architect of the Bexar County Courthouse, from 1894-96. He completed his professional training and entered into partnership with another architect. The firm of Murphey and Seutter was listed in city directory of 1897-98. In 1899, the partnership was dissolved and Seutter maintained architect’s office at frequently changing locations for at least three decades.
