In August, students across the state returned to school with curiosity and anticipation for the new school year. In addition to meeting their new teachers and re-connecting with friends, the K-8 students of Charleston’s Buist Academy (and their parents) were excited to finally see their school’s make-over in person. The renovation and expansion designed by Craig Gaulden Davis, in partnership with Stubbs Muldrow Herin, features a vibrant new media center, a colorful, day-lit gymnasium, additional classroom space, and much more. It was a demanding project for the designers, who sensitively enhanced and complimented the historic existing facility, all while meeting the challenges of building in Charleston, a heavily-regulated setting.
