WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We get so much enjoyment from the flat. Every time we return to Cape Town and walk into the flat we say WOW. Everything works and it is functional as well as beautiful.
APARTMENT THE PRESIDENT: MICHELLE
Our overall experience of working with KAA to design our house was very positive, as was the end result. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ben and his associates. They gave us good advice and saw the project through to completion in a professional, pleasant manner. The team was also able to complete the project in a shorter time than expected. Our favourite part of our house is the number of tall windows, making the house light, airy and modern. The floating staircase is another exciting feature. We would honestly not change anything after having lived in the house for a while. The design perfectly suits the site and our needs. We would definitely recommend KAA to anyone who needs any design services done.
HOUSE ST.JOHN’S, HIGGOVALE: FRAN AND RICHARD
I would definitely recommend KAA as they are great people to work with. Our house has a sense of space and simplicity, and I love the abundance of light and the fact that everyone’s needs are catered for. Working with KAA has been a positive experience.
I’m very positive about the service I received from KAA during the design and construction of my house. KAA listened extremely well to my requirements to ensure that I was satisfied with the end result. My favourite part of the house is the exterior! In short, I love the house and the support received from the architect and staff was great. If I build again, I would choose the same architect, but not all of the same subcontractors. I can happily recommend KAA.
HOUSE HELY HUTCHINGSON, CAMPS BAY: WOLFGANG
Ben Kotlowitz designed our house 12 years ago and the design really stood the test of time. We have just completed a renovation, as our needs have changed, once again with Ben. A few changes have completely changed the look and feel of our house, and I love the feeling of space that Ben created. The house has an amazing flow that really suits our needs as a family. Working with Ben and KAA has been great. We had a very clear idea of what we wanted, and they were able to meet the brief not once but twice on the same property!
HOUSE DES HUGENOTS, FRESNAYE: HAYLE
What I like most about the house, are all the modern elements. The way the areas flow into each other. I love the triple volume ceiling of the lounge area, the floor to ceiling glass and the expanse of the glass doors which open onto the patio and garden, and the way it opens up to the greenery, making it feel so much larger than it really is. The house is cleverly designed to face north, allowing the sun to flow in. I also love the design of all the bulkhead ceilings. The plot is small and yet the house feels large and spacious. Ben knows how to maximise and make the best use of the available space. I also like the floating ceiling element of the bedrooms. I lie in bed at night, watch the stars and feel like I am floating. In summary, the Quebec Road house is pure magic. I wouldn’t change anything! I would also highly recommend KAA and was grateful for their most professional service. Their team is a pleasure to work with, and their creativity and efficiency are beyond exceptional.
HOUSE QUEBEC, CAMPS BAY: TRACEY
The KAA experience was very friendly and supportive. The architect, Ben Kotlowitz, took trouble to understand my needs, translated these needs into a design, obtained planning permissions and managed to project. The job came in close to budget and everyone who visits comments on the quality of the finishes and superb design. I love the fantastic use of space on a small site and having lived in the house for a while, I wouldn’t change anything.
HOUSE LOADER, DE WATERKANT: DONALD
My favourite part of the house’s design is how the modern features fit and embrace the natural materials used. This results into a modern yet homely house. It was a privilege to deal with honest and true professionals. I would highly recommend KAA to anyone.
HOUSE MUTHAIGA, NAIROBI: MICHAEL
Architect Ben was excellent and extremely professional to work with. My favourite part of the house is the swimming pool area. The only thing I would change about the house, now that I’ve lived in it for a while, is enlarging the scullery and the flatlet. Otherwise, KAA listened extremely well to my requirements and met the agreed timelines. The overall KAA service was very positive.
HOUSE PEARL VALLEY, PAARL: ANTHONY
The whole renovation process of our house was a pleasurable experience with the help of KAA. They listened to our requirements to make sure that we were satisfied which resulted in a perfect design, to which we wouldn’t change anything!
HOUSE DRELINGCOURT, FRESNAYE: DENICE AND IAN
