Home/Resources/Aging in Place

Enjoy the moderate climate, culture, and beautiful landscape of the Barrier Islands of the Charleston area in your active retirement. Whether you are looking to age in place and want to update your Summerville home or if you want to design a new home in any of the coastal areas of Sullivan’s, Kiawah, Seabrook, or Daniel Island, work with an architect who understands the changing needs of mature adults. Our approach goes beyond grab bars. Our customized process seeks to understand your lifestyle, your hobbies, and the needs of your family. We then design your dream home so that it can adapt for you as you age throughout retirement.

Thrive in place in your custom designed home. Are relocating to the Charleston for retirement or converting a vacation home into your permanent residence? Swallowtail Architecture works throughout the Barrier Islands to design homes to suite your retirement goals for your family. Nothing can replace talking directly with an architect about your project. Every client is different and your retirement needs are unique. Seek the advice of a professional at the beginning of your project. Are you just getting started and need more information about finding, hiring, and working with an architect? Are ready to start? Contact Swallowtail Architecture about your project.
