99 Spring Street

On a postage stamp lot in downtown Charleston, SC, the client owned a piece of property that housed a single house dating to the mid 1800s.

The existing house had seen a series of renovations over time and was divided into two apartments. The clients had a law practice and rented space on a nearby street, but wanted to maximize use of their own property and build a new law office and additional residential unit behind the existing historic single house.

Working within the tight constraints of the site, City of Charleston Zoning requirements, and Board of Architectural Review regulations, Teague Studio was able to fit just what the client needed. This involved aligning the new construction with the existing and tucking it into the back of the site so that it is not visible from the street. Site logistics, parking, accessibility, and designing within the historic context provided interesting challenges, and Teague Studio found creative ways to accommodate the needs of the client while keeping the various agencies and entities satisfied.
