Project Info

Built around 1840, this masonry house at the corner of Logan and Queen Streets has survived the Civil War, the Great Fire of 1861, the 1886 earthquake and numerous hurricanes. The house was fully restored, with its 1977 southern addition repaired and extended. There were fascinating finds hidden behind walls and ceilings, including a fireplace, original interior plaster, and beautiful timber framing. The end result is a balance of restoration and modern addition, truly exposing the story of this house.

“It is with enthusiasm and without hesitation that I recommend the services of LFA Architecture.  Laura Altman is a very creative, responsive,  focused designer who has distinguished herself as one of Charleston’s talented young architects.  Along with Richie Johnson of Richard Johnson Contracting, Laura improved on the vision I had for the renovation of my home.  It was a true team and Laura’s guidance and “can do” attitude were a key to its success.  I could not be more pleased with the outcome.


You cannot do better than Laura Altman.”
