Since we are eyeing Hurricane Florence reminds us of the Hallways and Elevator Lobbies at Dockside Condominiums which were last updated after the damage of Hurricane Hugo. Renovations have begun on the lobbies by updating all of the materials. Raising the ceilings in the elevator lobbies with indirect uplighting and new platinum leafed light fixtures. New porcelain ceramic floors, wainscoting and moldings will complete the design. Construction has begun by Chastain Builders and will take around six months to complete. #docksidecharleston #charlestonsc #Chastianconstruction #charlestoncondos #charlestonrenvoations.

A contemporary home we designed is coming out of the ground in Florence, SC. It is for two doctors and we have designed an updated “rain porch” home. This is a unique architectural style from the Pee Dee Region where the home is being built. For the porches on these homes the columns go from the ground to the roof and the porch is pulled back from these so the edges of the porch don’t get wet during a storm. Therefore the name “Rain Porch” home. The home is being built by Jody Lane and ReMark Studio is the landscape architects on the job.
