This past week, much of my time was spent working on a renovation project for the North Charleston based organization Metanoia. The organization strives to improve its community from within, rather than rely on exterior sources to do it for them. They provide training and resources for its community members and turned to McMillan Pazdan Smith to renovate the existing Chicora Graded School to turn into a community resource. The new building will offer early childhood classrooms, a performing arts venue, artists spaces and office spaces for nonprofits. This week, the design development set for the renovation was submitted to the organization. Because it is a historical building renovation, a lot of thought has gone into preserving the original details of the building while still offering a usable and contemporary space for Metanoia.
