The Courtyard Connection Project challenged us to fit 2 houses on one property but still achieve privacy for both spaces. With a 900 square foot area for each house we were able to design a comfortable 2 bedroom, one bathroom, open concept living, dining, kitchen space with extra storage as well as a laundry closet and beautiful foyer area.
To manipulate the space square footage we implemented architectural elements, such as large windows, high ceilings and a large porch to enhance the space and create an airy open feeling.
the inspiration for materials used throughout design
The inspiration behind the design was a mix of greys, blues with black accents. Black is a bold colour so we used it sparingly throughout the design for the light fixtures, kitchen cabinets handles and window frames. Balancing with the light grey walls and a sultry blue colour on the doors it created a cohesive look.
Objective: Modern design with clean lines with monotone colour palette
A standard strip footing foundation was utilized with 6'' concrete blocks, filled with backfill and topped with reinforced concrete slab. The steel frames were then brought to site on 2 40 ft trailers and assembled on the concrete slab according to the drawings. The exterior was cladding with 1/2'' Plycem concrete board then painted with total wall stucco.

Objective: Create a light, bright space using modern elements
Seeing this design come to life was thrilling for us at KK Construction and Designs Ltd. Taking this project from conceptual designs all the way to the completed construction allowed us to really hone in on the design elements, colour palettes and architectural details that encompassed a serene modern look the client was wanting to achieve.
