Mepkin Abbey — Moncks Corner, SC

This important project for the monks of Mepkin Abbey included the construction of a new library and the complete renovation of the refectory and infirmary (or senior residential wing). Located in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, the Abbey’s rich history of tradition and a spectacular natural site combine to create a spiritual experience unlike any other. Consequently, our challenge was not only the addition and renovation of buildings on the site, but the interpretation and formalization of the monastic rituals that are so much a part of daily life.
