The Story

As the first heavy timber buildings constructed in Savannah, Ann Street Lofts offer residents a way to both live lavishly and lower their carbon footprints. Located in Savannah’s Historic District just steps from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), the lofts primarily cater to a younger clientele of students, recent graduates, and young professionals. As such, we curated art that would engage residents and complement the materiality of the building – sustainably harvested timber and historic brick – through the use of tactile mediums including wood, fiber, metal, and raw canvas – all in shades of dramatic neutrals.

The collection’s international artists are featured at 111 Ann Street and include SCAD graduate Naimar Ramirez from Puerto Rico – whose archival inkjet prints can be found on levels two through six – and Aby Mackie from Spain, whose woven yarn, cotton, and fabric sculpture greets tenants in the lobby.

Reclaimed materials in the collection include Laura Heck’s upcycled paint palettes, which she recreates into captivating “palate cleaners”; Christi Palitto’s wooden installation in tower 110’s front entry; and Nikki Rudolph’s repurposed book sculpture in tower 111’s first floor lounge. Additionally, artist Melissa Peterson-Pratt painted dead Savannah tree branches with colorful circles to add vibrancy to tower 110. She even wrote special “blessings” on the back of each tree feature to send love and happiness into the building. “I like to honor our life-giving trees by giving them a new life,” said Peterson-Pratt. “This art piece vividly shows the transformation from the living to the everlasting. For something that could have been chipped up or dumped or decomposed, is now a transporter of happiness and good vibes through art.”

Altogether, the dynamic art collection at Ann Street Lofts energizes residents and reinforces the property’s environmental design, showcasing sustainable, original artworks and unique print pieces by both local and national artists.
