On February 21st, members of CRAN Charleston met on Kiawah Island, SC. Members toured the LEED Platinum home designed by Christopher Rose Architects. The home is one of several prototypes designed for Indigo Park, Kiawah's premier green real estate neighborhood.
Many thanks to Audio Warehouse and Lutron for sponsoring this event.

This past Fall, members of AIA CRAN Charleston gathered at the Charleston Civic Design Center with sketch paper and computers in hand to create new concepts for Trident Habitat for Humanity. Teams consisting of architects, interns, and HFH project managers spent the morning brainstorming new efficient, beautiful and affordable home designs and the afternoon finalizing construction drawings for 6 different homes in the lowcountry.
In early December, East Cooper Habitat for Humanity unfortunately had many items stolen from their jobsite trailer. As a response, CRAN Charleston donated $1,000 to help buy new tools that were stolen in order to keep Habitat for Humanity operational.
Tim Barkley, publisher of Charleston Home + Design Magazine has been instrumental in the promotion of our group, Charleston CRAN. Members of Charleston CRAN strongly endorse the efforts that Tim has made in the promotion of our local building and design industries. Through the magazine and special events such as the Custom Home and Design Show, and the Custom Home and Remodel Show, Charleston home buyers have been kept abreast of what our local architects, builders, and building material suppliers have to offer. We encourage all to visit their upcoming event in August, the Custom Home and Remodel Show.
