Tully Alley and Charles Street are two new small urban lanes in downtown Charleston comprised of 12 new dwellings and 4 restored historic homes. The two brick-paved streets evoke a distinctly European feeling, and the residents foster a strong sense of community and neighborhood.
We also call this house The Smallest Palladian Villa in the World. Completed 2010. The ceiling height makes the relatively small space feel much larger. Multiple paint colors with subtle shade differences enliven the facade. A modest kitchen can be stowed away by shutting large folding doors. Design by R. Burgess, G. Holt, A. Gould.
George's house is all-new construction but it's heavy use of salvaged materials makes everything seem timeworn. The style of the main living space is 10th Century Byzantine. There is also a 6th century Italian flavor to this courtyard-type house, conjuring a bit of Rome in downtown Charleston. The non-descript exterior allows George's house to fit in easily with the urban fabric of Charles Street.
