The great new Brew Pub in the Upper Penninsula, Edmund’s Oast, has received numerous accolades as of late.  As far as we are concerned they are well founded!  The latest mention is in the list of top Drinking Patios.  Having had the opportunity to be a part of the design team on this project, we were quite thrilled with the latest distinction featuring the outdoor seating area.

Edmund’s Oast is one of the tenants in the urban renewal project known as Half Mile North in the Upper Penninsula of Charleston.  We have been the LA for the project from the beginning and with tenants like Blue Acorn and SIB, it has become a great new addition to the urban fabric with a uniquely modern aesthetic.  We collaborated with the clients and architects to create a unique identity for this collection of innovative businesses through the use of sustainable features including native plants, green roofs, hardscape details that include permeable paving, and long lasting, quality materials.

We took our design cues from the architecture both existing and new, the local ecology, and the site’s industrial past to form a vocabulary of custom paving, way finding, plant palette, custom site furnishings such as bike racks, bollards, benches and fencing that creates a unified site identity for the various tenants while still providing unique features for each user.

A recent blog post on the website of Blue Acorn, a local tech company focused on ecommerce, describes the development of their new headquarters in the up and coming creative corridor district of the Charleston Peninsula.  The headquarters is part of a larger redevelopment project by Stephen Zoukis and Michael Wooddy of Raven Cliff Company who have dubbed the project ‘Half Mile North’.  Remark is the Landscape Architect for the project and it has been an enjoyable process collaborating with the client and consultants such as master planner and interior designer, Jacob Lindsey, of Fabric Urban Design Office and with Laura and Blake Middleton of the Middleton Group.

See the full post to get all the details and see the renderings of the project.

Considering we will soon be neighbors, as the cottage we recently bought to renovate for our new office is only a block away, we are highly invested in making this the best project it can be.

Below are a few photos of the project under construction.

One of REMARK’s projects is gracing the May cover of Lowcountry Parent Magazine.  A fun and inspiring ‘tree house’ we designed for a local family is featured in the article.  We worked with the client and builder to create a unique play structure under the canopy of live oaks and adjacent to the marsh in their big backyard.  Their two sons have many options for interacting with the structure and room to grow into some of the more challenging elements. -H.K.

“Landscape pleases the eye, keeps business dry”, is the title of the article written by Robert Behre on March 10, 2013 regarding our work on the new Goodwill building on John’s Island.  We worked with the client and engineer to design a series of rain gardens in the parking lot and around the perimeter to handle stormwater and provide a visually appealing planting design.  A wire fence with native coral vine in the rear provides a screen that is also beautiful.

Once it has had a chance to grow in, the diversity of native plant material will provide wildlife habitat, while maintaining the rural character of the island and a visually appealing landscape.
