Entry Description

Rejuvenate Savannah is a proposal for a multi- functional 5,000 square foot adaptive reuse project located at 660 E Broughton St, directly on the edge of Savannah’s historic district. In collaboration with the urban farm companies Sea Island’s Local Outlet (SILO) and Freight Farms, as well as the juice company Savannah Squeeze and the Healthy Savannah initiative, this project was designed as an experiential retail space that encourages the community of Savannah to embrace healthy living practices and overall sustainable lifestyles. Along with the core retail spaces for these companies, Rejuvenate Savannah features an area for delivery pick-ups, a juice bar, outdoor and indoor lounge spaces, a children’s play area, a cooking class space, an arts space, and other workshop spaces, all designed with the purpose of providing the community with an all-encompassing retail experience that fosters creativity and growth.
