Kenzai – a house by the sea

Kenzai is a beautifully renovated home overlooking the ocean, inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian design. It was a finalist in the 2017 International Green Interiors Awards and 2017 Sustainability Awards. It has been our largest project to date and has allowed us to incorporate building system design, external material specification, landscape and even pool design into our practice. It is packed with environmentally sustainable elements, including recycled hardwood double-glazed windows, exposed concrete for thermal mass, Platinum GreenTag Cedar lining boards, VOC free paints and finishes, wool carpets and natural fabrics, cradle-to-cradle accredited tiles, a solar array, energy efficient solar-heated pool and appliances, and LED lighting.
