The Abbey

Pawley's Island, South Carolina

The Abbey – The pioneer of the Anglican movement in North America – The Reverend Charles Murphy – founded this parish in Pawleys Island South Carolina. The faith community purchased an unused community building and hired Blue Ridge architects to design a 220 seat chapel. The chapel was to be consistent with the architecture of low-country and capture the beauty of the surrounding Litchfield Plantation. The new chapel arranges pews around a simple platform defined by a custom altar rail. High gothic windows and heavy timber trusses give the space a timeless feel. The existing building was renovated to create a variety of fellowship, education and administrative spaces. Interior Designer and parish member Susan Albright brought an exquisite attention to detail throughout the building. Project completed in 2016
