Rosenblum Coe Architects, Inc. is proud to have been selected to design the new Sylvia Vlosky Yaschik Jewish Studies Building at the College of Charleston. The importance of this building in terms of Jewish identity and prominence, in both Charleston and throughout South Carolina, is that it is a symbol of the Jewish presence. The Jewish Studies Building makes a 21st century statement about our culture and lifestyle, while being respectful to its neighboring historic structures. Like most of the historic corner buildings on Wentworth Street the scale and massing of the building is more substantial then the smaller sizes of the adjacent residences which occupy the middle of the individual blocks which make up the street. The view down Gleeb Street toward Wentworth identifies the Jewish Studies Building as the 'bookend' at the end of the continuous chain of classic historic homes which comprise the street. The Jewish Studies building unifies the entire Glebb Street block into a single streetscape.

The firm's practice includes projects in Columbia, Rock Hill, Orangeburg, coastal South Carolina, and the Charleston Area.
