Courier Square Wins 2020 Stanford White Award

Courier Square Wins 2020 Stanford White Award

The Institute of Classical Architecture and Art has announced that Courier Square has won the 2020 Stanford White Award for Residential Architecture in the Multi-Unit Projects category. Partner Gary Brewer led RAMSA's design of Courier Square, a collaboration with the developer Greystar and Evening Post Industries, LS3P Architects, and DesignWorks Landscape Architecture. 

Courier Square

 

Courier Square, the new gateway to downtown Charleston's Peninsula, part of a larger multi-phase redevelopment project that extends the city's urban fabric north from its already bustling Broad Street, is composed of two distinct buildings: an office building along Meeting Street and a residential building at Columbus Street. At the ground level, shopfronts set into rusticated stone facades activate the street, while above, sixteen Ionic columns set into the stucco facade reinforce its presence on King Street.

 

The Guild

 

The Guild, an eight-story, 220-unit loft-style brick apartment building on Columbus Street, recalls the industrial character of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century warehouses in the area.

A clock tower rises 120 feet above the site of a proposed greenway, visually marking the development on the skyline. The two buildings mask an enclosed parking structure at the center of the site. A rooftop pool terrace offers views to the east.

The Stanford White Awards program recognizes achievement in individual projects in architecture, interiors, landscape, urbanism, and building craftsmanship & artisanship throughout New York, New Jersey, and Fairfield County, Connecticut. The awards program is named in honor of Stanford White (1853-1906), of the distinguished New York firm McKim, Mead & White, whose legacy of design excellence and creativity in architecture and the related arts continues to serve as a source of inspiration and delight.

The ICAA is excited to announce that the 9th Annual Stanford White Awards will be made available to all, in a special presentation that will stream on Wednesday, December 2nd, at 7:00 PM EST.
