Workstead House | Charleston was designed as a platform for connection: Connection to those bygone characters who walked its hallways in another era; to the many visionaries who contributed to its next chapter as a historic estate reinvented; and to all those who will find resonance in a new, exceptional design philosophy—southern modernism.    

Like the property itself, every event held at Workstead House | Charleston is the work of creatives and craftsman, designed to stimulate the senses for all who cross the threshold. From watching a chef make use of every inch of the vast marble counter, to the laughter that fills the drawing room during a dinner party, to the sound of footsteps descending the original grand staircase at sunset, you are invited to not only admire southern modernism--but to experience it.  Please check back here regularly to find how you can interact with Workstead House | Charleston.

THE DINNER

 We hosted the first ever dinner, “In the Belly of the Whale,” on Wednesday, July 13th, 2016.  After a tour of the Workstead House | Charleston--then in a state of studs--a group of 16 gathered around an old farm table, enjoying fresh-baked sourdough bread, summer salads and sliced meats.  With the gentle hum of a large fan in the background and the sun setting through the tall windows, the invited guests ate, drank, and delighted in one another’s company.  It was yet another magical night in a house that had undoubtedly seen much merriment among its storied walls. 

 
 

OUR GUEST

During the course of the evening, guests were invited to steal away from candlelit conversation for a portrait session with Charleston-based photographer Jeff Holt.  The backdrop was hand-painted, and the intention was simple: to capture a moment in time, and all the beauty within it.
