SAVANNAH, GA | HISTORIC PRESERVATION STUDIO

M. Arch Fall 2014 10 weeks | Professor Jack Pyburn | Vanessa Lira

Preservation and rehabilitation strategies were employed in order to maintain the historical characteristics of the original Savannah Station building. Its character defining features include the window and door openings, the wood structure and brick walls, and the building volumes. The proposed treatments for the historic fabric consist of striping paint of the wood structure to restore it to the original wood and apply  chemical paint removal on the brick walls to restore the original exposed conditions. The design problem is to create a healthy eating solution that when successfully completed will encourage a healthy lifestyle for the community through culinary classes, a cafe, a local market and a meal distribution center. Corten steel and stainless steel were introduced in the use of plates that outline the historic versus the new openings.
