A multi phase project done over several years, GBA was hired to bring back the charm to this large 1850's Charleston Single. Working with the BAR, local neighborhoods and preservation groups, we restored the missing 3 chimney's, added an ADA ramp and restored the infilled piazza porches to match, bring back the symmetry to the structure. Lastly we were challenged with converting the interior to a 3 story venue comprising of three different themes as one moves through the space. The ground floor originally the basement for the house was converted to a wine bar concept with exposed brick walls and painted ceiling joists. The space includes a prep kitchen area for demonstrations, when not needed a set of custom barn doors made from the old ceilings of the piazzas can divide the space when the area is needed for behind the scenes. First floor was the only original space that could be salvaged. We preserved one of the original ceiling rosettes and replicated missing heavy window and door trim to make all the trim match. this is the most formal floor in the building. On the third floor we exposed the ceilings to create a loft space with a rustic feel that flows into the houses 2 large piazzas that act as circulation through the space.
