At Hotel Bennett, a Midcentury Library Becomes an Historically Minded Hotel (Jan 30, 2019)

The nine-story building was designed by classical architects Fairfax & Sammons and evokes a grand Italian palazzo-style building nestled onto Charleston’s bustling Marion Square. "Fairfax & Sammons had done a design charette ten to 15 years ago focused on bringing classical architecture back to Charleston and that really resonated with me,” Bennett says of his selection. "When I was in my late 20s, I was developing some of the sea islands and everyone was building these huge block buildings and I built 1920s-looking beach cottages with deep porches. I didn't want to go to the beach to be in a tall building with shag carpet. So I have always looked back in time to find what is right for the development.”
