Charleston Office Move Featured in Local Paper

Charleston Mercury
March 2013

The Charleston office’s move and Management Committee Member Don Meyer were featured in the Charleston Mercury on March 13, in a piece entitled “Moore & Van Allen Moves into Kress Building."  The article details the factors that contributed to the office’s move, reasons why the Kress Building was selected as the new location, the renovations that occurred, the look and layout of the new office interior, and the many perks the new location will offer.

“Their new office gives you the impression that you have just entered a New York ad agency with its high ceilings, sleek design and vivid colors splashed here and there as opposed to the dark colors and mahogany wood most imagine law offices to be adorned with,” the reporter writes.   Meyer stated that because of the building’s uniqueness and the intent to preserve history, “'we have had to be very flexible and very creative in our renovation.  For example, we have made a decision to preserve and expose the high ceilings and the evaporative (“swamp”) cooler.’”  He explained that the intent of the renovations was “'to update the space to ensure full business functionality and improve energy efficiency, while respecting the building’s original and remarkable art deco architecture.’”
