Andy Clark AIA, LEED AP, Associate Principal + Higher Education Market Leader

"As the son of a professor and married to a teacher, educational design is personal to me. There is great responsibility in knowing that generations of students will engage these facilities. The 21st century student is redefining the pedagogical approach & we must adapt our designs to meet these needs. Students are no longer passive listeners. Campus spaces must be designed to promote collaborative learning in a flexible, media rich environment. Liollio has helped our clients realize their institutional mission through innovation which is only possible through listening & actively engaging the client in a collaborative design process. I strive to give back to our community, serving on the Clemson Architectural Foundation Board of Trustees & as past President of AIA Charleston, where I co-founded a free public lecture series to elevate the design dialogue in our community."

CHARLESTON PROGRESSIVE ACADEMY

This 1955 structure is deemed significant by the City & local preservation organizations as an excellent example of mid-century architecture. The project site is small & constrained. It is bordered by a busy 4 lane artery entering the City to the west, a historic 19th century neighborhood park to the south & a fine fabric historic residential neighborhood to the east and north. The key to the design effort involved a close collaboration with the City regulatory design boards, the neighborhood design committee & the school district; & most importantly, addressed the educational needs of the K4-6 grade student body, faculty & administrative staff as they continue to deliver a successful & well documented 21st century educational program. The new construction supports a new media center complete with a computer training classroom, science, art & multi-purpose room. A music room with its own balcony is located on the second floor of the new addition. Musical performances are easily attainable for a grand audience when the doors from the music room are open to the courtyard below.


COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON SCIENCE CENTER

The new Science Center is a teaching & research facility committed to the integration of discovery, innovation & education. Labs, lecture halls, classrooms, community spaces & faculty offices comprise the majority of the building's program connected by open internal spaces that foster an interactive & collaborative environment. One design challenge was to develop an aesthetic that complements the scale & historic nature of the fine textured surrounding buildings while accommodating a 125,000 SF program on a confined urban site. Our team's approach was to utilize the context of surrounding buildings to influence the design & materials selection for color & surface characteristics conveying the craftsmanship of the many historic structures within this neighborhood.
Project in association with Ballinger, Inc.


24 WATER STREET FIRST BAPTIST SCHOOL

First Baptist Church & School have used this former residence as a classroom building for nearly 70 years. After a severe electrical fire closed the building in 2012, Liollio was retained to provide a Condition Assessment Report & then to execute a program of preservation & rehabilitation transforming the building into a 21st Century educational space. The goals for this project were not only to repair the fire damage but also to increase the shared space between the church & school, streamline traffic, provide a welcoming presence, optimize use of limited space & improve energy efficiency. We provided campus visioning exercises with key groups while also coordinating communications between the school & surrounding neighborhood. Liollio worked closely with the Preservation Society of Charleston & Historic Charleston Foundation, City Zoning & BAR staff to achieve project approval.


COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON CRAIG HALL

The Admissions Office for the College of Charleston in Craig Hall, previously located in multiple buildings, is the initial contact for prospective students & parents. The design objective was to consolidate the various office locations into a 23,000 SF area on the ground floor of Craig Hall with spaces that are inviting, open & reflective of the character of the campus, influencing the impression of first time visitors. The design team maximized the location of the space by purposely framing historic Porter's Lodge, Cistern & Randolph Hall within the meeting room. Offices & conference rooms are designed around exterior windows to capitalize on daylighting. Easy access to mail, storage & support spaces were also important program considerations.


COLLETON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL

Colleton County High School is the centerpiece of the 2007 Colleton County School District's building program & master planning exercises funded under an alternative finance initiative. The total project is comprised of two phases. Phase One was the early site preparation package with development of a 6,000 seat football & soccer stadium, a softball & baseball complex, track & field area, tennis courts & practice fields. The initial phase also installed water/sewer systems for the site along with roadway improvements, parking & drive preparation & other infrastructure. Phase Two focused on the main school building - a two story modern design providing four academic houses for instruction, each featuring a career themed curriculum focus. The main school building provides a full complement of interior athletic facilities showcasing a 2,500 seat competition gymnasium with auxiliary gym. The 7,000 SF dining facility was designed with a day-lit interior with access to exterior courtyard areas. Food selections are offered by a five station food court. The administrative & two-story media center forms the central axis space. Many specially featured instructional spaces are provided such as career labs, spaces for distance learning & a tiered lecture hall style classroom.
