Sullivan’s Island settlement dates back at least to the 1600s, and today’s sought after beaches and amiable atmosphere are a testament to the slow-paced life that is still attainable here. Burton’s winning designs include a coastal island renovation, two marshfront homes and a fourth award, in Dunes West, for “The Blue Kitchen.” ArCH announced the Design Excellence wins June 1.
