March 8, 2019

Each year Chasm staff gathers in our Atlanta corporate headquarters for our “Annual Kick-Off Meeting. It is an opportunity for our talented team to collectively refine the culture of the firm by reflecting upon our values, qualities, commitment to our professional development as well as our ascending position as a leader in the design industry. Our first day together consisted of a thorough and open discussion of how Chasm was founded two years before the recessions and how we have successfully and exponentially grown year after year since that tumultuous period. And then we ate! Following the feast, the staff who didn’t have kid duty, went to Top Golf, which is a five minute walk from our office.

Day two represented the continuation of our discussion on firm culture and how we, as a team, believe Chasm must maintain a constant state of evolution to build an international brand.  The two day event concluded with VIP level service provided by State Farm Arena and the Hawks Organization at the Lakers Game! Much gratitude to Joe Buda and Thad Sheely, COO of the Atlanta Hawks and State Farm Arena for executing a perfect night in the lofts!

In addition and as another surprise to the staff, Nathaniel invited friend and Academy Award winner, Lou Gossett, Jr. to join the staff in the suite for the evening.  The Kick-Off was a tremendous success! The Hawks defeated the Lakers 117-113, Chasm staff had a wonderful time with a spread fit for royalty, the Hawks raffled off hats and a signed jersey during a Hawks “Trivia” Session,  and we all had an opportunity to sit, talk and take pictures with a living legend, Louis Gossett Jr.

Here’s to 2019!

Now let’s see what Nate can come up with for 2020….hmmmm…can’t wait!

By the way, we’re Hiring!!

The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is unique in that it resonates with the best of who we are and allows us to put it into practice.

Chasm Architecture celebrated and honored Dr. King’s legacy by participating in the MLK National Day of Service. In our ongoing commitment to volunteerism and civic engagement, team members dedicated their day off to doing house repairs, as well as yard work for elderly homeowners who did not have the physical and/or financial means to complete themselves. Overall it was an experience that our staff expressed was empowering, inspiring and purposeful.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As Chasm Architecture continues to evolve as a leading brand in the Architectural industry, making a greater impact beyond design is important. Connecting to and establishing a presence within the communities we serve through civic engagement is one of our company-wide goals. Chasm stepped up in a huge way as a Toys for Tots site. Toys for Tots goal is to collect and distribute gifts to less fortunate children at Christmas.  Our team approached this effort with great enthusiasm! Our box overflowed with toys and a lucky boy and girl awakened Christmas morning with brand new bikes under their tree!

Nathaniel Clark was the recipient of the 2018 “Star Award” at NAMC’s Annual Hard Hat Awards ceremony. The Hard Hat Awards celebrates champions and leaders in the construction, architectural and engineering industries. Nate certainly personifies the meaning behind this honor, as it recognizes individuals who have shown exceptional leadership and contributions to their profession, as well as become a serious competitor in the marketplace. This will undoubtedly be one of many recognitions he and Chasm Architecture will receive for years to come.

A revival has energized the Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church. Built as the Atlanta Gospel Tabernacle in 1930, parishioners from four congregations enlivened this Neoclassical Revival-style building in Inman Park with their church services for seventy-five years. The building’s stately full-height porch and triangular feature above a set of classical columns characterize this popular architectural style in the United States during the early 1900s. Although the church was recognized as historically significant by the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 and by the Atlanta Urban Design Commission in 2002, Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church shuttered its doors in 2005.

Preserving the historic character of an existing church in a popular neighborhood, yet repurposing the building to be economically viable presented a daunting task for developers and architects. As further protection for the structure, proposed renovations and additions to Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church would need the approval of savvy community leaders and the Atlanta Urban Design Commission. This landmark lingered in silence from multiple, failed development deals for nearly ten years until Kairos Development Corporation and Chasm Architecture emerged with their ambitious plans to revitalize the building.

Chasm Architecture Managing Partner Nathaniel Clark AIA led the architectural and engineering teams through the design process of transforming the two-story Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church into Lizzie Chapel Flats, a three-story, six-unit condominium project. This process entailed a complex mix of new building components and the restoration of historical elements. Clark adds, “It was important for us to be empathetic, meticulous and mature enough to stop designing when we arrived at the appropriate solution.“ A new, floating concrete floor was added with minimal impact on the building exterior. The church steeple and the stained glass from 1970s and 1980s additions were removed to restore the original designs. Natural light from the tall windows draw attention to the distinctive detailing inside the six lofts.

With their thorough attention to details and history, Chasm Architecture garnered the approval of community leaders, a 2017 Merit Award from the Atlanta Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Atlanta), and a 2017 Atlanta Urban Design Commission Award of Excellence for Adaptive Use. Residents of the Lizzie Chapel Flats have reinvigorated the once-abandoned church building. A neglected eyesore has been transformed into a community asset and an exceptional housing option in Inman Park. As other historic church buildings in metropolitan Atlanta face an uncertain fate, let’s hope that Lizzie Chapel Flats can serve as inspiration for developers and architects to rehabilitate and, if necessary, repurpose these impressive structures.

The Lizzy Chapel Flats—born within the shell of the circa-1930 Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church/Atlanta Gospel Tabernacle—serve as a reminder that, with a little creativity, even Atlanta’s challenging older buildings present an opportunity for new uses. A report in Atlanta INtown outlines the design process Kairos Development Corporation and Chasm Architecture underwent to create six condos from the old brick chapel. The interior spaces lean modern, but special care was taken to minimally impact historic details, while renovations from the 1970s and ’80s were reversed to reveal the building’s original splendor. The project went on to be recognized by the American Institute of Architects last year, and buyers snatched up the three-bedroom, three-bathroom units for around $800,000 a piece.
