Swallowtail Architecture has been selected as this month’s featured architectural firm in Charleston, SC by AIA CRAN Charleston.  An honor bestowed on us by our peers who also practice architecture in the greater Charleston area.  The home highlighted with this honor is the Gallery House–constructed for our clients on Sullivan’s Island.  What was once considered an impossible dream of a modern style beach house, through collaboration with Swallowtail, our clients are now able to live in their perfect, forever home amongst their art and treasured collectables.
