thomas square residence

The two-story building was designed as a prototype for new residential construction in the Thomas Square Streetcar National Register Historic District in Savannah, Georgia.  Taking visual cues from the adjacent architectural context, as well as adhering to the neighborhood’s design standards in the City zoning ordinance, the design was developed to have a strong individual character yet complement its surroundings. They typical 30’ by 100’ lot size dictated the 2-story house form.  Architectural details such as the exposed rafter tails, two-over-two window pattern, and chamfered square columns are typical features of the late 19th and early 20th century neighborhood’s architecture.

This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath residence was completed on Barnard Street, within the district, in 2014 and sold as a single-family home shortly after.
