AIA Charleston YAF Building Tour

AIA Charleston YAF Building Tour

Rescheduled for Wednesday 10/14
Located just south of the Garco Park development in the heart of downtown North Charleston, the new Adams Outdoor Advertising facility, Designed by McMillan Pazdan Smith, consists of approximately 8,000 s.f. of office space and 4,000 s.f. of warehouse production space that will be home to 36 employees. This open design coupled with the traditional brick detailing, hints to the context of the industrial mill buildings that were typical of the area, while the stained wood and cast stone accents create relief to the traditional details.  The building is sited so the clerestory can take full advantage of the sun, allowing for ample natural lighting throughout the interior.
