CHARLESTON, SC -- Doyle was honored to receive the distinguished Carolopolis Award of the Preservation Society of Charleston at the 70th Carolopolis Awards ceremony on February 29. The award recognized Doyle’s 2023 renovation of the historic 1888 building at 123 King Street housing our Charleston gallery. Stated the Society of the renovation,“123 King Street once again proudly contributes to this prominent corridor and serves as a shining example of the traditional craftsmanship and architectural character so integral to Charleston’s historic streetscape.”

Doyle partnered with Julia F. Martin Architects of Charleston on the project that included reconstruction of the storefront, renovation of the first floor for a new gallery, improvements to the second floor residences, and restoration of the historic piazzas. Archer Construction sensitively executed the build out, and landscape architect Glen Gardner created the new walled courtyard and garden.

Accepting the Carolopolis Award on behalf of Doyle were CEO Laura Doyle and Charleston Regional Advisor Emily Grimball Longley, in addition to Julia F. Martin and Erin Lanier of Julia F. Martin Architects and Travis Fitts of Archer Construction.

“Carolopolis projects are rarely about any one individual, but how groups of those devoted to stewardship can collectively work together to tackle challenges that can appear insurmountable,” said Brian Turner, President & CEO of the Preservation Society.

Doyle’s Charleston-based Regional Advisors regularly host events within the newly renovated King Street gallery. These include consignment days featuring Doyle’s team of Specialists, connoisseurship talks on a range of collecting topics, and preview exhibitions of property to be auctioned in New York and online to collectors around the globe.
