A space for teaching and tasting

This 22,000 SF renovation provides a state-of-the art facility to support rapid growth in the culinary arts program at Trident Tech’s Palmer Campus. 

The project included interior renovations, additions, and a new  façade. The building features a 125-seat demonstration kitchen, with tiered seating and quartered Anigre millwork to give the space a comfortable, high-end atmosphere. This unique space is a highly sought-after venue for community events in the Lowcountry area. The 50-seat teaching restaurant, 181 Palmer Dining Room, provides fine dining to the public and serves as a venue for business meetings downtown. A beverage operations lab provides independent bar stations with integrated technology for filming.
