Unique home on Isle of Palms earns local architect national recognition
Welcome to the edge of the world on the Isle of Palms in a newly completed home designed by Swallowtail Architecture’s, Rachel Burton. This month, our project, aptly named, Isle of Palms Land’s End, has been featured in The Post and Courier. The article discusses the amazing opportunity Rachel had in collaboration with the homeowner to create a truly tranquil space that enveloped the beauty of coastal living in South Carolina.
Starting from scratch, Burton seized the opportunity to truly create a nature escape. The property juts out into the marsh, allowing wide-ranging views of the marsh to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the northeast and Dewees Island to the north.
“It was this extraordinary opportunity to literally feel like you’re in nature,” said Burton. “You could see the sun come up, you could see storms arrive, you could see the change of seasons and tides. So, it was just this truly magnificent site.”

As a result of the work on this home, Swallowtail was recognized by International Design Organization, International Property Awards, for her unique solution for the home’s site. Rachel, and Swallowtail, received top honors in two categories for the Best Architecture in South Carolina, and the Best Architecture in the USA.
