PROJECT OVERVIEW

 

Project consisted if the renovation and alteration of a notable Circa 1916 building originally constructed as the Harriot Pinckney Home for Seamen and the adjoining Church of the Redeemer Chapel. 

Phase one of the program for this project was to remove the fixtures and equipment from an existing first floor restaurant and a second-floor bar and to address multiple code, and engineering shortcomings in the East wing of the building.

 

Phase two of the project was to design and construct a new restaurant, bar and large-scale commercial kitchen in these portions of the building.  The East wing consisted of roughly 5,000 square foot multi-story brick structure with multiple tenants.  The central first floor space was selected for the location of the bar. This one of kind bar has outside patio dining and interior space dedicated for restaurant seating and bathrooms.  A large stained-glass ceiling piece designed and manufactured by Charleston artist Honey McCrary is housed in the architect's backlit sculptural steel panel assembly transforming the once bland interior to a vibrant, uplifting, and very popular bar.  

 

The much larger second floor space is accessed by a stair from the first-floor bar area and is dedicated for additional restaurant area, a large commercial kitchen and bathrooms.  A restaurant space is located on the south end where it can capture natural light and the views of the thriving Market Street.  The ribbed ceiling of the restaurant is hipped to align with the underside of the roof creating and expansive but pleasant feel in the single open room.  This room is often dedicated for private dining parties and events.  These dining areas are serviced by a large state of the art commercial kitchen.
