COLUMBIA, SC  – May 12, 2014 –  Studio 2LR, an architecture and interior design firm with an emphasis on sustainable contemporary design, recently earned three design awards for historic preservation projects.

The Brennen Building, located at 1210-1220 Main Street in Columbia, earned a Historic Preservation Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) South Carolina Chapter. This project also received a 2014 Preservation/Restoration Award from Historic Columbia. Originally completed around 1871 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, this project restored one of the City’s best examples of an intact French-Victorian commercial structure. The building, owned by First Citizens, now houses a café, restaurant, and banking offices.

The Council Chambers at City Hall project, located at 1737 Main Street in Columbia, was also awarded a 2014 Preservation/Restoration Award from Historic Columbia. Constructed in 1874 and located on the third floor of City Hall, the council chambers were originally a courtroom and the focal point of the entire building. The restoration included repairs to the intricate original plaster details, new paint including period appropriate colors, new lighting including a period chandelier, a new audio/visual system, and the complete restoration of the historic cast iron skylight.
