Design Review Board Appointee

The City of Charleston has recently appointed Jeff Johnston, SMHa Project Architect, to its Design Review Board.  The purpose of the board is to establish a review process that will protect and improve the visual and aesthetic character and economic value of development within the City of Charleston.  We couldn't agree more with their decision; Jeff is ever a thoughtful designer, able to see the value in the overall concept and the subtle details of a building. Some of his projects with SMHa include The Church of the Holy Cross on Daniel Island, Willowglen Academy in Kingstree and Cross Creek Medical Office Building in Charleston.

Ashley Hall Dining Commons

SMHa's design for Ashley Hall's new Dining Commons received The Robert N. S. and Patti Foos Whitelaw Founders Award by the Historic Charleston Foundation this week.  The Historic Charleston Foundation is dedicated to preserving and protecting the historical, architectural and cultural character of Charleston and through this award has underscored how a new facility can support these ideals on an historic, downtown Charleston campus.

The Ashley Hall Dining Commons was also recently recognized by the South Carolina Chapter of the Council of Education Facility Planners International with an Honor Award for its design and functional excellence.
