RICHLAND LIBRARY WHEATLEY
Richland Library Wheatley is located in the historic Shandon Neighborhood in Columbia and serves a socially and economically diverse community. The community sees the library as their neighborhood spot where people know your name. The renovation of the interior emphasizes and takes inspiration from the neighborhood coffee shop or bookstore concept, where you would go to hang out, read or talk to your neighbors. A variety of cozy nooks, small meeting and activity nodes, and increased technology access will be found in this neighborhood library.
Cape Lookout Lighthouse c.1859
Cape Lookout Lighthouse, c.1859, is located at the Cape Lookout National Seashore on the South Care Bank in North Carolina. It is 163 feet tall and constructed of load-bearing brick walls and is topped with a metal and glass lantern. The lighthouse is painted a distinctive black and white diamond pattern. Liollio’s effort includes the exploration of a range of feasible treatment alternative actions and identification of a preferred action for the structural repairs and improvements throughout the lighthouse. Liollio is also investigating options to remove existing exterior coatings and apply a new paint system appropriate for long term preservation of the structure.
MUSC 64 COURTENAY DRIVE parking GARAGE & PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICE
The design concept for the proposed parking facility at Cannon Street and Courtney Drive is the product of contextual influences and the opportunities and constraints presented by the site. The design concept floats the mass of the parking garage above an open, inviting pedestrian environment which extends under the umbrella of the structure. This will activate the street edge and provide pedestrians with protection from the weather and adjacent traffic. The design also includes the relocation of MUSC’s Public Safety Department to the first floor. This office will provide Public Safety with additional operational capacity in an expanded space. Employees parking in the garage and pedestrians in the Medical District will benefit from Public Safety’s presence. The lowest level contains ADA parking to maximize space for vehicle stacking upon entering and exiting the garage. High speed gates and advanced vehicle recognition systems will allow for faster vehicle ingress and egress. The design of the garage responds to the Charleston typology of buildings with a contemporary massing strategy focused on creating a light, bright and inviting environment.
'The Welcome Center at I-77 is lovely! It provides such a lovely, warm welcome for visitors to South Carolina and for those of us commuting from Virginia.'
– Ann D. Weaver, Executive Administrative Assistant, Richland Library
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA RUTLEDGE & LEGARE-PINCKNEY COLLEGES
The Rutledge College and Legare-Pinckney College renovations will provide sensitive exterior preservation and interior modernization to some of the most significant historic architecture on the USC Horseshoe. Rutledge College (c.1805) is the oldest surviving structure on the USC campus, and is attributed to Robert Mills, who also designed the Washington Monument. Although its appearance has been heavily modified, the building remains as a testament to the history of USC. Legare College (c.1847) and Pinckney College (c.1837) are sited alongside Rutledge, together forming the Southern edge of the University’s most important outdoor space.
