(SAVANNAH, GA) Felder & Associates is celebrating its fifth year of bringing clients’ visions to life. Specializing in historic preservation, commercial architecture, adaptive reuse architecture, corporate interior design, high-end residential design, green building, and neo-traditional building, the firm has an extensive background working with owner-occupied- private, commercial and residential properties.
“It all began with four employees back in 2012,” said managing principal Brian Felder. “Now we have seven, soon to be eight, employees. We’ve worked on dream houses, corporate headquarters and restaurants. Our design efforts revolve around bringing to life that person’s, couple’s or company’s vision.”
The staff of Felder & Associates are LEED accredited architects and interior designers who focus on sustainability and have been recognized with a number of awards. In 2017 alone, the firm received the ENR Southeast’s Award of Merit for the Bouhan Falligant building along with two preservation awards from the Historic Savannah Foundation for work on two restaurants, Atlantic and Vic’s on the River.
Civically, Felder serves Savannah in a number of ways. He was recently elected as chair of the Historic Savannah Foundation Board of Trustees and also serves as chair of the Revolving Fund which is used to purchase and protect historic structures throughout the City’s historic districts.
“We’re thankful for the progress that we’ve made this year and the things that we’ve been able to accomplish,” said Felder. “We’re looking forward to another year of remaining a small and committed firm to all of our clients in and around Savannah. New projects include a new office building for Speros, the Savannah African American Art Museum, Metro North Presbyterian Church in Goose Creek, and a new sanctuary for Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Vidalia. Spreading out into the region has provided us with even more opportunities.”
The Virginia Beach, Va., native graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor of architecture. He and his wife, Denise, have three children and live in Savannah.
