The Kawa team can help you with all the stages of building your new home, turning a concept into reality. From the initial property design, through to planning, constructing and finishing. Our attentive, professional team are able to deliver hand crafted projects of exceptional quality on time and within budget.
As a design team we pride ourselves in having the ability to enhance, as opposed to blight, the local landscape.
We offer the same service for those hoping to extend existing properties. We are happy to advise clients on how to release the full potential of a property and allow the client to optimise the space and gain the attributes they are looking for from the space they have available.
Remodelling and Revamping Extension
The clients brief was to remodel the single skin block extension and add a 3x3m glass room to create a new kitchen/family room. The leaking flat roof was removed and replaced with a hand cut Douglas Fir pitched roof. It was then insulated and finished off with a traditional wet laid slate. The block work was wrapped in insulation and clad in hardwood. Bi fold doors were installed and slate flooring laid through the extension and into the newly excavated patio area allowing flow from the inside to an outside living space
Two Storey Bachelor Annex
The Kawa team were approached to build an architecturally designed annex on the footprint of a double garage adjoining a 1980’s bungalow. The plans were provided by ARCO2 and involved retaining two of the original garage walls, then building a timber frame off a new concrete pad at the back of the dwelling. A second storey was then added to the property. A steel ridge beam and hand crafted roof timbers allowed a vaulted ceiling to run through the property giving it an airy modern look.
Modernist Scandinavian style family room
The clients brief was to create a second storey extension above a double garage. It was their wish to maximise the useable floorspace, using a timber frame and steel construction to achieve an additional family room with a modernist feel. It was clad in cedar to compliment the Scandinavian style of the existing bungalow and nestle into it’s woodland surroundings. Aluminium joinery was specified, yet all other detailing kept to a minimum, so as not to detract from the simple lines of the build.
The Kawa team project managed and built a two storey annex on the side of our existing family bungalow. Working to a constrained budget they completed all of the carpentry and construction work to exceptional standards. Their knowledge of building methods and materials along with a passion for aesthetics and high quality finishes has resulted in an amazing space to live and work from. Ben Simpson
