309 E Chapel Hill Street

309 E Chapel Hill Street
Durham, NC

Originally constructed in 1914, the Holland Brothers Furniture Building housed a series of furniture companies during the twentieth century but fell into disrepair in recent decades. The 2016 historic rehabilitation successfully transformed vacant space into a vibrant mixed-use building integrated into the urban fabric of downtown Durham.

The renovation was comprehensive—all building systems were modernized to meet the needs of today’s tenants. But despite the scale of renovation, the development team emphasized the retention of original detail. The team studied photographic evidence to recreate the original storefront and cornice; removed, reinstalled, and refinished hardwoods; restored the historic stair, plaster walls, and tin ceiling. The result is modern building performance with historic character. The basement, which now operates as a restaurant, is an intimate space with exposed timber ceilings and brick walls. Office space on the first through fourth floors feature open layouts with original tongue and groove ceilings, glass conference rooms, and natural light on three sides. On top of it all, a new roof deck provides panoramic skyline views.
