The Dewberry

The Dewberry is an iconic 5-star hotel, housed in a former Federal Office Building in downtown Charleston, SC. The interiors were designed by Workstead and are the studio's third hotel project, and first major project in the Southeast. The 155-room hotel features a restaurant, two bars, a public living room, ballroom, spa, and historic lobby. Workstead's holistic approach to the design included all interior finishes, custom millwork, furniture, and lighting.

The interiors of the Dewberry explore the concept of Southern Modernism - a combination of the tried and true materials of the South, within the sensibility of the modern building that is The Dewberry.  Key Collaborators included the Urban Electric Company, Lawson Fenning, Specialty Woodworks, Becca Barnett, Peyton Averett, and numerous other local and regional craftsmen.  The result is a hotel that is both modern, timeless, and distinctly Charleston.
