Mount Pleasant’s new Town Hall is a milestone project in one of South Carolina’s fastest-growing areas. The facility will be an icon that provides efficient public service and a transparent government in a building that ties sustainable design with a respect for the town’s history and a vision for its future. The new Town Hall will replace the current building, requiring well-planned phasing and programming. Departments include executive offices, communication, and administrative services, transportation, fire, legal, municipal, planning, public services, recreation, police, and tourism.

Our Director of Interior Design, Andrea Kuhfuss, and Katherine Fishburne, of Innovink (at the time), were asked to reflect the charm and character of this coastal community through the interior design of the new civic space. Andrea and Katherine beautifully integrated the refined flavors of the Lowcountry with the high-traffic and function of civic operations to maintain the dignity and sophistication of this Town Hall for years to come. Plenty of natural light made organic materials and colors a fitting choice to provide a calm environment for staff and guests. Sweetgrass baskets inspired woven wall coverings. Tabby concrete full of crushed shells elegantly nod to what is often underfoot. And in the lobby, creature-like fixtures hang high above storyboards that showcase the town’s history and offer visitors a sense of place.

*CGD and Innovink worked on Mount Pleasant Town Hall with architect of record, Stubbs Muldrow Herin Architects.
