There’s a movement stirring, a perception of the importance of what has come before, of architectural memory, a sense of place and space and the past, of how we can preserve it yet live our modern lives. It’s not a new idea but definitely an idea whose time has come.
“Workstead House | Charleston is the physical exploration of southern modernism—a design philosophy informed by the distinctive heritage of the American South. Originally built in 1853 on Charleston’s historic “Bee’s Row,” the grand, three-story home and accompanying carriage house were meticulously restored under the careful direction of Workstead, with every element curated in deference to, and reverence of, past and future, evoking a style—and lifestyle—both new and deeply remembered in South Carolina’s low country.
Workstead House | Charleston draws on the property’s unique, storied past, reincarnating heritage elements as modern luxury in a welcoming home. Materials are rich, honest, and meant to last. Original details such as stairs, floors, molding, windows and doors of the home were preserved and restored, with updated conveniences carefully incorporated. The result is an all-sensory experience of southern modernism.”
