Inspired by design

Available at Knickers, Island Child and Gigi’s Boutique

It’s all about design this month at the beautiful University of South Carolina Beaufort Hilton Head Island campus fashion shoot. While the setting honed in on hospitality and distinguished architecture, stylist Roxanne Gilleland emphasized design through fashion with soft, transitional colors and neutral pops of blue to masterfully curate our blueprint for this issue. Liollio Architecture shared a few design highlights of the stunning $25 million project.

A quiet place

Spaces were designed to be separated to optimize acoustic comfort. Plumbing and mechanical equipment were located to reduce their acoustical impact, and full height partitions were installed to reduce sound transmission.

Let there be light

More than 60 percent of the occupied spaces have access to outside views. The interior lighting was designed to accommodate different task areas, and innovative shading devices were installed to control daylight.

Have a seat

The staircase hangout features natural wood and stadium seating. Students can read a book, talk with friends or just relax. The innovative design is reflective of island character, yet forward looking.
