Retains it’s original charm
We appriecated Kana’s timely and practical approach. The new more open floor plan is wonderful, the house feels much more generous than it's size would suggest, but it still retains its original charm. Kana’s services were very good quality and she was incredibly patient offering several opportunities to revise the developing plans.
Very happy with our newly renovated home
Kana had some excellent suggestions that worked out really well. For example, she suggested a skylight for our covered patio so that there will be natural light into the living room. We enjoy our open concept kitchen and living room and the extension of a master bedroom and ensuit. Kana was able to incorporate the existing features of the house and come up with functional layouts that ensure good flow and symmetry. Kana has great attention to details that ensures good integration of the old and new part of the house.
Kana was extremely professional and a great listener
The shape of the house is cleverly designed. There is a feeling of greater space than we actually have. We have a lot of light coming in through the cupola roof area and it has a great handmade feel in and out.
The Design is Perfect
We chose Kana because she came recommended and we needed someone who listened. I think we had 3-4 meetings where we tweaked the design. My husband has never been keen on using an architect or designer, but he was very very impressed with Kana’s knowledge and her drawings were so precise and easy to follow for the building team. She gave us the house plans that were fit for our location and layout of the land. We knew what we wanted and Kana gave us a beautiful home... and she proved herself to my husband which was a huge bonus!
We love our renovations
There is a feeling of happiness when you walk in the door. It is more efficient and esthetic. We made changes to Kana’s designs and after living in our house for a few years we have a saying, “we should never mess with kana’s drawings, she knows best!”
We love the simple lines
From the first meeting to the construction drawings, Kana was able to bring our ideas to physical space and did so with the kind of vision we had hoped for. The house needed to harmonize with our property, which has mature conifers, slopes and terraces. The design elements of a functional, lasting, west coast home have all been integrated perfectly.
