Constructed circa 1929, the residence located at 1000/1002 Laurens Street is significant because of its architectural design, which contributes to the overall architectural character of Columbia's University Neighborhood Historic District.

This is a multi-family, two-story, duplex-style residence in the foursquare
style. It is of masonry construction and rests on a closed brick foundation.
The building is four units in width and four deep, with two entryways, one on the north end of the front elevation and one on the south end. Two square brick piers support a front-gabled arched portico over each entryway. The windows are double-hung, glazed one-over-one, with decorative shutters. The composition shingle roof is pyramidal, with one side dormer on the south slope clad with vinyl siding, and two interior chimneys. This property is identical to 1004 / 1006 Laurens Street with the exception of the portico roofs and arched entryways.

This structure was entered into the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing property under the "University Neighborhood Historic District," nomination of 2004.
