Main House, Guest House + Garage in Charleston, South Carolina on the Waterfront near Kiawah Island.
FEMA Flood Zone + Hurricane Rated Custom Home
With a growing family, our client reached out to EcoSteel to build a modern / minimalist home that was designed with non-traditional building materials. With the help of Woollen Studios, EcoSteel created an all steel building system that was FEMA Flood Zone, Hurricane Rated, Fire Resistant, and Termite Proof. Design with a raised foundation and walls of Fleetwood Impact Rated Glass, we were able to fully express the breathtaking views of the Kiawah River. Designing with steel created flexible openings that invite the outside in and remove visual and physical barriers. Opening this indoor / outdoor space allowed our client to enjoy the expanded sense of space, yet stay comfortable with a transparent barrier that protects you no matter what weather nature brings.
