69th Carolopolis Awards 116 Canon Street Exterior

Each year, the Preservation Society celebrates the best of preservation in Charleston and the Lowcountry through the Carolopolis Award program. Coastal Creek Design founder and lead engineer Brian Wells contributed his structural engineering expertise to the award-winning exterior renovation of 116 Cannon Street alongside Julia F. Martin Architects and Archer Construction.

When several West Ashley residents grew concerned about plans to demolish a historic home at 8 Stocker Drive, it appeared there was little they could do about it. But sometimes, all it takes is to make your voice heard — and treat a developer not as an enemy but as a potential friend who might come around to your point of view.

Inspired by Scandinavian architecture, this West Ashley villa had a night and day transformation thanks to the teamwork of the homeowner, builder, and a local architectural design firm.
