The Polished Nickel finish of the Darlana Large Lantern by E.F. Chapman reflects the natural sunlight in this bright stairway during the day, and provides a warm glow in the evening.

The Bluewater team created an open living and dining space in this Westport, CT home, ideal for enjoying its panoramic views of the Long Island Sound. The Camille Small Chandelier by Suzanne Kasler is a casual yet elegant touch over the glass dining table.

Bluewater selected the Patrick Large Pendants by Thomas O’Brien to light one of two islands in this spacious kitchen, which won the 2016 HOBI Award for Best Residential Remodeled Kitchen & Lower Level.

The expert craftsmanship of a Bluewater home is evident in the details. A bow window and fireplace lined with herringbone stone grace the living room of this Nantucket Shingle style home. A pair of Primitive Sconces by Clodagh add modern flair to the mantel.

Interior designer Michelle Hogue of hogueID completed this Bluewater home with luxurious yet livable furnishings. The Windsor Large Hanging Shade by Ralph Lauren takes center stage in this airy master bedroom. 

First look! The stunning kitchen in Bluewater’s latest Compo Beach home features Precision Large Pendants by Kelly Wearstler in Polished Nickel.

“One of my favorite and most-revered designers is Barbara Barry. Her famous quote, “When I think about what moves me most in life, it is beauty” sums up my sentiments as well.” – Elizabeth Metcalfe

“Beauty makes the world a better place – it quietly asks for our attention, commands that we pause and acknowledge it, and leaves us feeling calmer and happier.” – Elizabeth Metcalfe

From the day Steven Kendrick founded Structures Building Company in 1999, his mission was clear: simplify the complex process of custom home building and remodeling for his clients. It wasn’t long before Structures developed a reputation for crafting some of the most beautiful and energy-efficient homes in the Charleston area. Our showroom has had the pleasure of working with Steven and his team to bring their clients’ visions to life, one light at a time. Get inspired by a few of our favorite homes by Structures Building Company and shop their hand-selected lighting looks! Photography by Holger Obenaus.

Architectural details can have a huge impact on a home’s design. Instead of keeping an  architect on staff, Structures works closely with many of the top firms in the Charleston area. With their help, clients can choose the architect whose individual style and design philosophy most closely matches their own.

Structures’ expertise is building on the coastal landscapes of Charleston, Daniel Island, Mt. Pleasant, I’On Village, Kiawah Island and surrounding areas.

The design/build team works with local vendors and suppliers to source the highest quality materials and finishes for every budget. Clients enjoy this simplified approach to selecting fixtures, appliances, color palettes and much more.
