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 custom prefabricated home that was designed with non-traditional building materials. With the help of Woollen Studios, EcoSteel created an all steel home that was flood and hurricane resistant. The structure is FEMA Flood Zone, Hurricane Rated, Fire Resistant, and Termite Proof. With the raised foundation and walls of Fleetwood Impact Rated Glass used to create this modern steel building, we were able to fully express the breathtaking views of the Kiawah River. With the use of steel, we created flexible openings that invite the outside in and removed visual and physical barriers. The full windows allow beautiful views of the South Carolina landscape outside of this metal building home. 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.
