The Nathaniel Russell House is recognized as one of America’s fines examples of Neoclassical domestic architecture, and is designated as National Historic Landmark Property. This landscape entry differs from most of Charleston’s early urban dwellings. The house is sited approximately 30 feet back from the street creating a front garden entrance through which the house is entered at garden level.  Constructed of three layers this design highlights the details of the gate within an 8x10 black aluminum frame with clear glass.

  • Joel is a licensed architect practicing in Charleston, SC, and the Owner of Score and Burn. His love of building and landscape was nurtured in the mountains of western North Carolina, where early in life, he grew up with vernacular buildings shaped by landscape, natural systems, and the activities they contain. He came to Charleston by way of Clemson and UVA, and in the historic architecture of Charleston, I have continued my study of site specific purpose built architecture. Score and Burn seeks to bring an interest in digital fabrication to create designs which explore the built and natural environments of our historic and beautiful city.
