1426 MEETING ST.

COMMERCIAL OFFICES IN CHARLESTON, SC

1426 Meeting Street will provide much needed office space in the emerging market located in the “Neck” area of the peninsula.  This two story, 6,000 SF office space is designed for flexibility and will accommodate both a single or multiple tenants.

 

After extensive study of the context of the area, the building skin was considered in a “layered approach”.  This was to pay respect to the high degree of variety in the neighboring forms and materials.  Surrounded by open space, and a prevalence of industrial facilities and shipping containers, the design seeks to take that industrial nature and soften those textures through the use of natural materials.  The exterior skin consists primarily of smooth Shou Sugi Ban wood siding with textured accents that further emphasize the shifting layers of the skin.  Reflections of the nearby stacked shipping containers are evident in the proportions and patterning of the exterior Shou Sugi Ban wood siding.  The natural wood siding at the corner provides a point of contrast that emphasizes the main entrance and provides relief to the Shou Sugi Ban wood and metal palette.

 

Building is set to begin construction in late 2020, its estimated completion date is 2021.
