Architrave Interior Design is proud to have our Chisolm project featured in Traditional Building Magazine. The feature walks through how Founder and Interior Designer Moe Draz brought a 1922 neoclassical apartment in Charleston back to its former elegance.

Nested in Charleston’s South of Broad Historic District, this corner-unit penthouse, suite is touted as a study in elegance.

Adorned with generously proportioned rooms, 14-foot ceilings and period-style steel windows that frame views of the Ashley River, these defining features Draz when a retired couple commissioned him to reimagine the spaces in their newly purchased apartment in the 1922 building designed by David B. Hyer.

“The apartment had been renovated about 10 years ago,” Draz says, adding that he has worked on other units in the building. It was like a white box—the kitchen and bath were dated, and the apartment didn’t have much personality or character. We left the layout as is but reconfigured the primary-suite bath.”

The couple, who were relocating permanently from Memphis, Tennessee, asked Draz to incorporate their lifetime collection of colorful modern art and European antiques into the new design.

“I worked from photos, videos, and measurements they sent,” he says, adding that the project commenced at the beginning of the pandemic, when the world shut down, and no in-person meetings were allowed. None of the items were on site until the day of installation. Making them work in a different space and in a different environment was challenging.”

Read on about how Draz refreshed this space with a nod to nostalgia and tradition using a pleasing citrus color palette, textured walls, carefully curated artwork, hand-painted murals and more.
