Liollio Architecture Receives 4 2019 AIA Charleston Design + Service Awards

The AIA Charleston 2019 Design + Service Awards ceremony took place on Friday, November 8th at the historic Woolfe Street Playhouse. Liollio was honored with four awards, including an Honor Award in Commercial New Construction & Substantial Renovation for Town of James Island Town Hall, and three Jury Citation Awards in Commercial New Construction & Substantial Renovation for Fort Mill Welcome Center, Hampton County Health Clinic, and Richland Library St. Andrews.

Liollio would like to congratulate all of the firms and project teams on their hard work and amazing talent. Liollio would also like to thank AIA Charleston and the jurors for honoring our work and the project teams and clients who made these collaborative, award-winning designs possible: Hampton County SC, Richland Library, SC Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, and the Town of James Island.

Jury comments:
“The lovely scale and cohesive materiality and great detailing contribute to this beautiful project. The strong simplicity of this project conveys a clear sense of welcoming stability for the community. The single shutter and stacked window composition was a delightful and playful reference to history; the familiarity of vernacular indicates comfort for the community and individual user regardless of its public forum.”
− James Island Town Hall

“The exterior materials were wonderfully varied and had a compelling origin story. The roofline, daylight and detailing illustrated craft and care....and the porch swing looks like just the ticket! We appreciated the subtlety of the steel detailing as well as the spacious uplifting feel of the interior.”
− Fort Mill Welcome Center

“We hope that this building sets a trend for the neighborhood. It definitely makes the most of the site and we appreciate the circulation, daylight and overall plan of this modest building. The exterior detailing also makes the most of the material palette and budget. We appreciated the strength conveyed by the design, creating a sense of safety and comfort.”
− Hampton County Health Clinic

“From a sustainability standpoint, this project made great use of a modest shell. The jury appreciated the use of natural daylight and integration of landscape. The design incorporates smart and simple moves that transformed the previous building, creating an engaging and inviting solution.”
− Richland Library St. Andrews
