United States Post Office


South Side Branch Savannah, Georgia

Fronting a major thoroughfare, the facility incorporates strong, simple building forms to present a clear identity to motorists traveling at higher speeds. The front elevation is the result of multiple concept design studies. The arched entry opening and wide diameter columns imply a civic image. A recessed exterior lobby wall creates a colonnaded, covered walkway for use in inclement weather and provides shading for window openings. Wall coverings in the lobby repeat the exterior arch motif. Accent colors are used in the quarry tile floors and counter tops. The customer service area is open during working hours and secured from the general lobby by glass doors after closing.
