We understand that every space we craft is a canvas for self-expression and art is integral to making these spaces truly unique.

Visiting a total of three addresses, all at various stages of construction and completion, we explored what is soon to be a magnificent family home, complete with outdoor swimming pool, the conversion of an imposing, Victorian building into 12 luxury flats and a site that is currently little more than a façade but will, in time, be transformed into an exceptional London residence.

We are excited to see our Antigua Villa project progressing on site. The contemporary architecture and interior design of this luxury property combine to create a spacious and light-filled environment. Floor to ceiling windows celebrate the panoramic views of the Caribbean and visually unite the inside and outside spaces. Antigua enjoys a tropical climate but a considered palette of materials, including stone, timber and concrete, ensures cool and comfortable, indoor temperatures. The natural tones and textures work together to create a refined yet relaxed vacation-home.

Take a look at our stair design process from concept to completion! A stair, often referred to as ‘the core’, literally and figuratively sits at the heart of a building. It connects spaces together vertically creating a journey through the building. At KSR, our team of talented designers work closely with clients to design spaces that meet their needs. Our design process starts with concept sketches, which are developed through an iterative process from rough sketches, to concept models and 3D visualisations, which give a realistic impression of how the finished stair will appear
