Greenville, SC

Sometimes a simple renovation can be more than just transforming a building within the constraints of its walls, creating a sense of place that gives so much more to a once-neglected property. The owner of Belladina’s had a vision to not just create a restaurant but to develop an entire site that activates and energizes a community. The existing 2,400-square-foot building, converted to an Italian restaurant is joined on the site by a new market showcasing fresh ingredients and prepared food. The common space that connects the contrast between the old and the new becomes a multi-function event area that can be used for dining, games, and gatherings; bringing a sense of pride to a small community within the larger fabric of Greenville.
