1x1 Design Awarded AIA SC Design Awards

Now, officially, 1x1 Design is an "award winning firm". We happen to take a lot of pride in all the work we do...it's kind of the idea on which the firms was started. But, we are happy to be recognized by our peers for these great projects, too. Who doesn't like an award every now and then?

The Phase Two Renovations at The Nickelodeon Theatre in Columbia, South Carolina, received a Merit Award for Adaptive Reuse/Renovation.  The renovations transformed the second floor vacant theatre into a theater with all the modern technology associated with a movie-going experience today, but with a nod to the grand theater experience of the early 1900’s.  Additional office space, accessibility improvements and concession renovations were also part of the project.

The renovations at 4326 Fort Jackson Boulevard for simplesurance received a Citation Award for Adaptive Reuse/Renovation.  The project, consisting of only 1690 square feet, completely transformed a vacant 1960’s building into a fresh, yet simple, retail experience. 

Finally, the interior renovations of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church were recognized as a finalist for the Interior Architecture Awards.  The complete interior renovation of this historic church in downtown Columbia, included plaster repair, refurbishment of heart pine floors, restoration of original stained glass windows, and the custom application of a Venetian Plaster at the chancel.
