The Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage is a refurbished historical building listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Ridgeland, SC. Phase One was designed to salvage an old Service Gas Station (2,400 sf) and associated building (1,005 sf) into an Art Gallery, Office Space, Reception Area, History Center, and Breakroom. To replicate the service station character the existing roll up door was replaced in a portion of the gallery and can be opened during receptions to let participants flow out of doors. The proper HVAC design had to be developed that would be best in our humid climate with the artwork. Phase Two developed site work for the property in its entirety, converted an old grocery store (2,500 sf), and an addition of 1,050 sf. The addition housed restrooms while the repurposed building housed a commercial kitchen, and meeting/conference space by way of a connector to Phase I.
