Christopher Rose Architects is a small, collaborative design firm focusing on detail, clarity, tradition, and innovation. Comprised of a few individuals who have worked together for many years, the staff brings a wide variety of expertise and knowledge to every project. The team’s design philosophy is deeply entrenched in South Carolina’s architectural history and dynamic climatic landscape. “We approach architecture with a rich awareness of regional traditions coupled with ever-evolving technologies to produce homes with a lasting, distinct appeal,” says principal Christopher Rose. “We site our homes carefully, in response to sun, breezes, and views of the Lowcountry,” explains the native South Carolinian. These tried-and-true methods are the foundation of the firm’s commitment to sustainable design. We were the first to design a LEED Platinum rated home within a gated community. Christopher Rose Architects’ home designs value efficiency and clarity in an effort to create a spatial simplicity that is a retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. “We pride ourselves on our attention to detail,” Rose continues. Through a steady dialogue and understanding between client and architect, Christopher Rose Architects customizes each design to its client’s specific needs. The resulting home is a unique expression of the client’s way of life, marrying the traditions of the past with a vision and specificity that is their own.
