Trident Technical College Culinary Institute of Charleston

Charleston, SC

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

The project included interior renovations, additions, and a new facade. 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. As Mike Sabo, dean for the Culinary Institute of Charleston, states, “The design of our culinary school encourages creative thinking among our students and our community gets to savor in their success.”
